Chococo Chocolate Cookbook by Claire Burnet Review

So how is everyone doing after the Christmas Holiday adventure?

Is everyone still in a food coma??

I know that I am still in recovery mode, but that I fine with me...as that means I had an excellent time!

And excellent time looking over the most amazing and beautifully photographed Chocolate Cookbook that was provided at no cost for my review.

Chococo
by Claire Burnet and photography by Jonathan Gregson.

I first want to say if you take a peek at this cookbook and are not drooling...there must be something wrong with you :)

I was delighted at all the wonderful color photographs that brought each and every page to life. If they could just figure out a way to incorporate smell-o-vision. YUUUMMMMM!!!

Chococo is laid out very nicely and easy to follow with a Table on Contents to get you started in the right direction....

Including....

The Chococo Story
Working with chocolate
Truffles & treats
Cakes & bakes
Cookies, bars, &drinks
Desserts

Ice cream & sauces
Index
Acknowledgments

The working with chocolate section of the book was very en lighting and I feel a necessary part, in order for the home cook to understand the unique and varietal challenges while working with chocolate. Everyone can learn from this clearly written introduction.

The way author Claire Burnet eloquently describes how to create the worlds most luxurious chocolate creations, leaves no questions unanswered. Anyone with the passion and love for chocolate will appreciate the skill and effort that was used to create Chococo.

You can learn to create over 65 Chocolate recipes in this 144 page colorful cookbook.

Anyone who takes the time to purchase this book will not be disappointed!

Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent Giveaway / Review $30 Value

Tropical Traditions continues to bless me with the opportunity to learn more about their products and try them out so I can share my experience with others and giveaway the same things I received to sample.

Any one that reads my blog, knows I have 3 very active boys in our house.  Which along with three active boys, goes MANY, MANY loads of laundry.  But, laundry is not a simple task at our house.  First of all one of my sons has very sensitive skin and can be challenging to find products that won't irritate this delicate skin.  And second has to be stains (I am sure you are all shocked to find that out).

When it is laundry time I definitely have a tendency to by liquid detergent,  Reason being it dissolves totally in the wash water.  So when I was given the chance to try out Tropical Traditions 5 pounds of powdered laundry detergent with the power of oxygen bleach, I wasn't sure what to expect.

I was pleasantly surprised first of all the lack of fragrance and that ALL the powdered laundry detergent dissolved completely in the load of laundry.  I was also pleased to see this detergent did not irritate my son's skin.  That is a HUGE accomplishment!  Plus Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent left all our clothes clean and white!

"Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent cleans and removes stains from your laundry with the power of Oxygen Bleach Destainer and Deodorizer.

Powdered Laundry Detergent costs less to use than commercial liquid detergents and costs no more to use than commercial powdered household laundry detergents.

Powdered Laundry Detergent can be used with Oxygen Bleach Destainer and Deodorizer to provide optimum cleaning and stain removal!

  • For heavily soiled loads add 1/2 cup (4 oz) of detergent and 1/4 to 1/2 cup (2-4 oz) of Oxygen Bleach

Crest Oral B Stages Cars 2 MommyParties Get Together

We (yes, I said "we") were so excited to be selected by MommyParties to host a Crest and Oral-B Pro Health FOR ME and Oral-B Stages Cars 2 Get Together.  My boys were jumping up and down screaming when they found out!

I first want to say we are HUGE Oral-B fans before this party, now I have touched others with my love and hopefully have created a new Oral B consumers.

Did you know Oral B has a line called Stages that helps parents select the correct toothbrush for your child's age and needs.  Stage 1 (4-24 Months Old), Stage 2 (2-4 Year Olds) and Stage 3 (5-7 Year Olds). 

We were provided an AMAZING Party kit for my older boys who are 5 and 7 years old.  How perfect we received a great selection of Oral B Stage 3 Toothbrushes, Flossers, Pro-Health From Me Rinse, Cars 2 Gummy Vitamins, Recipes and Activity Ideas, Disney's Cars 2 DVD, Balloons, Napkins, Popcorn and Popcorn Boxes, PLUS wonderful Gift Bags to help share all this Health Conscious Line.

My boys were beyond excited to help set up for the party and help put each bag together.  We had an amazing time.  It was fun watching all the children pulling out their flossers to get the popcorn hulls out of their teeth.  And many moms were grateful to see their children enjoying using the flosser all on their own. 

The children really liked watching the Cars 2 Video and eating popcorn out of fun popcorn boxes.  Their favorite game appeared to be the Yucky Mouth vs. Healthy Mouth Activity...go figure a bunch of boys talking about "yucky" stuff.  It was very entertaining.

I really liked this opportunity to help expose other to great oral health care practices.  All the children seems genuinely excited to try out there new, cool toothbrushes and toothpaste when they left. 

Thank you Oral B, Crest and MommyParties for sharing this amazing experience!

Disclosure - I received free product to host an Oral-B Stages party by Mommyparties, but all opinions are my own.

Mini Hot Milk Frother, Froth Au Lait Giveaway / Review $79.99 Value (Rafflecopter)

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Who reading this is addicted to expensive store bought gourmet coffee and coffee drinks?

I am proud to announce, I no longer need to spend my hard earned money on these store bought beverages.

I can make my own, coffee house brew in the easy of my home in only a few minutes, thanks to:


Froth Au Lait sent me one of their Life Changing Milk Frothers to try out, review and giveaway.  So one of my luck bloggy friends is going to win their own Mini Glass Froth Au Lait Hot Milk Frother.

Before I share my  thoughts....I need to know by a show of hands....who has heard of Froth Au Lait?

For those of you who haven't heard of Froth Au Lait...

Froth Au Lait's MINI™ is Froth Au Lait’s original fully automatic, compact, electric Hot milk frother. With patented Froth Whip Technology (FWT™), the original, fully automatic, MINI™ is compact and powerful producing luxurious hot froth for the ultimate in specialty coffee beverage making.

"Prepare mounds of meringue-like hot froth in just minutes. Savor the long lasting froth for 30 minutes or more!"  I found this quote on Froth Au Lait's website and I would have never believed it would be possible for froth to stay around for at least thirty minutes (and taste good)...but trust me they are not lying, if anything they are being modest, as this light and airy froth seems to defy gravity as it reminds and reminds.

Just 4 Easy Steps
  1. Pour in the cold milk
  2. Start the frothing cycle
  3. Pour out the hot milk
  4. Spoon out the thick and luxurious froth

The clean up is even quicker after using my Mini, just a quick rinse (But DO NOT immerse) and a scrubbing sponge to remove all the residue and you are ready to make your next gourmet drink (perfect timing as the Mini needs to cool before making a second batch).

I am speechless when it come to the endless possibilities of what you can do and add into your Froth Au Lait to make it as you like or your guests.  Yes....Don't forget to make your Christmas and New Year's Eve Parties extra special and memorable...thanks to the helps of Froth Au Lait....Take the Ordinary and make it Expectational!!!

I like brewing my single serve coffee pods nice and strong.....and combine the strong coffee into the Forth Au Lait machine as it is running ...so I have coffee flavored froth and my drink. It is so goood!
My boys absolutely love when I make their Hot Cocoa in the milk frother.  They love the "foam" and what is waiting underneath.  I love they they are drinking MILK!  Sometimes that gets to be quite a challenge as a parent.  Froth Au Lait is the solution :)

I can't wait to try adding some flavoring into the milk froth and serve it over fresh fruit, or how about.....hummmm.....like I said the options are only limited by your imagination.

Did I mention that i love the compact size of the Mini.  It may be smaller, but it still is mighty and can get the job done without taking up to much precious counter space.  But they do have other size options like the Professional.


I can't imagine my life and my family's life before Froth Au Lait.   Thank you for making the simple things in life so special and affordable.

Learn more about Froth Au Lait on Facebook and Twitter.

And if you want to see it in action via youtube...here you go.

Salem Baking Company Facebook Photo Contest! Win some Moravian Cookies

A few months ago I had the pleasure and privileged to review and giveaway some of

Salem Baking Company famous Moravian Chocolate Dipped Cookies (Salem Baking offers many different varieties of Moravian Cookies).

They are amazing and read below for your chance to Win some Moravian Cookies for yourself.

These are the perfect sweet delight after a meal or a late night indulgence. Salem Baking Co. has combined the finest most cherished, yet healthful, ingredients from around the world to create their Legendary Spice Cookie. These cookies feature Asian ginger, cloves from Madagascar and allspice from Jamaica + they are dipped in premium dark chocolate.

What a perfect marriage of flavors and you don't have to feel so guilty about this indulgence. As both ginger and dark chocolate have documented health benefits. Plus five of these wafer thin delights only contain 160 calories. My biggest problem was stopping at just five cookies.

Salem Baking Company has worked wonders with these cookies as they as so thin, but are not over powered by the elegant dark chocolate. The spices are also not over powering, but balanced to leave your taste buds wanting more.

If you want a chance enjoy some of these excellent Moravian Cookies....

Wine Wipes Giveaway / Review 5 Chances to Win

The Holidays are in full swing and so are all the gatherings, get togethers and parties.  And along with all the events many beverages are enjoyed including coffee, tea and wine (red wine).

How many of you, especially ladies have noticed the discoloration that red wine leaves on your mouth, teeth and tongue, during and after enjoying a glass or two? (yes, I know after way too many glasses often you forget totally what you look like, including your face)

These stains can be embarrassing and make you very self conscious, which can ruin the best party.  But I have recently found a simple, easy, convenient and natural solution to this problem.

Yes, I said simple......

Wine Wipes by Borracha!

Wine Wipes come in a convenient compact at a very affordable price (20 wipes for approximately $6.95).  And believe this...the compact even included a mirror!  You will never miss a stain again!

I want to say, if you are like me, I am certain you are assuming Wine Wipes have a minty after taste, which would destroy the enjoyment of a glass of wine.

Well Wine Wipes are Orange Blossom Flavored.  They chose this flavor as it is found naturally in red wine and will not interfere with your next glass of wine.  What a perfect idea!

And did you know after using a Wine Wipe on your teeth....they will be protected from the discoloration for your next few glasses of red wine, because it contains Glycerin which lightly coats and protects your teeth.  The best part is you can't even feel the coating.

Wine Wipes also contain other natural ingredients including baking soda and calcium to name a few.  The one thing I want to share from personal experience, make sure your lips are not cracked and dry when using Wine Wipes as my were during one use and it caused a burning sensation (one of the ingredients is citric acid).  But don't let that scare you away...as Wine Wipes are a perfect and easy solution for wine and coffee drinkers.

Sign up below for a chance to win 2 packages of Wine Wipes to enjoy yourself ----- 5 Winners will be selected.  Good Luck.

Dale and Thomas Popcorn Sparkling Snowflake Six Bag Samplers Box Review

It is NOT to late to send the Rolls Royce of Popcorn (description thanks to the Today Show!) as a Gift this Holiday Season.

Dale and Thomas Popcorn has taken Popcorn to a whole new level in size, quality and flavors.

Dale and Thomas Popcorn sent me the most amazing Sparking Snowflake Six Bag Samplers to review and enjoy with my family this Holiday Season.

I first want to say Dale and Thomas Popcorn truly deserved the title of Gourmet!

Each and every bite was fresh and crunchy.  The popped kernels were huge and I LOVED the fact there were not many popcorn hulls.  All the perfectly popped kernels were coated to perfection with whatever flavor they were blessed with......and let me tell you they offer an amazing selection of savory and sweet flavors.

The Sparkling Snowflake Six Bag Samplers box is such a perfect gift for the young and old.  The red Holiday wrapping around the heavy duty box was eye appealing and made me so excited to find out what awaited in side.  

Upon opening this festive gift, my eyes were greeted with six one foot long packages of different flavors of Dale and Thomas Popcorn.  I enjoyed the combination of sweet and savory flavors that were included like....
Chocolate Chunk N' Caramel , Twice-As-Nice Chocolate DrizzleCorn, Dale's Caramel, Peanut Butter & White Chocolate DrizzleCorn, Hall of Fame Kettle Corn and Southwest Cheddar Chipotle.

Each package is meant to serve 2 to 3 people...unless you are like me and busy blogging and eating...which now has lead to one entire bag of Chocolate Chuck N' Caramel....gone.

One thing I notice about Dale and Thomas popcorn is that the chocolate drizzle actually stays on each popped kernel.  I enjoy the ability to then get the proper mix of popcorn and the added flavoring in one bite. 

The names chosen for the different flavor combinations I sampled described exactly what waited inside each bag. 

Okay, one other thing....how do they keep the popcorn tasting so fresh and not soggy with all the great and creative flavors?  Dale and Thomas Popcorn even includes a best by date on each bag, so you can make sure to get the best product available.  And after you open a bag, I can't believe it will stick around very long.

When you choose a gift from Dale and Thomas, they guarantee you're choosing an exquisite gourmet gift of great taste. They combine farm-fresh corn, grown just for popping, with premium quality ingredients to create ingenious popcorn flavors that we wrap up in gracefully designed gift assortments.

Learn more about Dale and Thomas Popcorn on their website and order some today.  They currently have some excellent holiday sales going on!

You can also find Dale and Thomas on Facebook and sign up to be placed on Dale and Thomas Popcorn email list, so you won't miss out on all the excellent deals.

Perky Jerky Christmas Giveaway 12 Chances to Win Over $120 of Beef and Turkey Perky Jerky

Merry Christmas from Perky Jerky!

I was thrilled to be asked by Perky Jerky to help play Santa this Christmas!

And guess what Santa has in his bag??




Ho! Ho! Ho! You are correct.....Lot of bags of Perky Jerky for many good women and men.

How many you ask?

12 Winners will be selected (and if you are REALLY Good!  You can even win more than once!)

Each lucky winner will enjoy 1 (2.2oz) bag of Beef Perky Jerky and 1 (2.2oz) bag of Turkey Perky Jerky ($10 Value!)

Okay, is it true?.....you may not have heard of Santa Perky Jerky?  Well, let me share a little bit about this Jolly o' Man himself.

Yes, he wears a red, soot covered suit and has the jolliest laugh around....And all he carries in his bag is Beef and Turkey Perky Jerky.

Like I shared in a prior review for one of my absolute favorite jerky brands...

"Perky Jerky is the new high-protein, ultra-premium, functional food for active lifestyles taking the nation by storm. They start with premium all natural beef (no MSG, no nitrates), and add a Special 7 ingredient marinade, which includes Guarana, a little berry from the Amazon that is commonly found in energy drinks.




It’s low fat, low carb, low cal and loaded with protein. No preservatives, no sodium nitrates, and no added MSG."
I continue to be mystified by the tenderness of the Perky Jerky. It is tender without losing it Jerky texture and chew. Plus it doesn't get stuck in your teeth. It is ever so slightly sweet, but peppery at times with a balance of spices. It leaves your hands sticky in a good way after enjoying a piece or two (Or the Whole Bag!). I bet you can't resist licking your fingers off.
  
So are you going to be one or more of the lucky 12 Winners? 

Only way to find out if Santa Perky Jerky is going to deliver you a package in time for Christmas Cheer is to enter below.

I want to share that Enjoy Life continues to evolve their packaging and recipes to make each and every item they sell, be the best they can be!

I know all of you are going to be shocked....but my favorite was Cocoa Loco (yes, Chocolate!).  I loved the portion control size of Enjoy Life Chewy Bars....Plus each 1 oz bar is the perfect serving size.  The Cocoa Loco was chocolaty without being overly sweet.   Each bar is packed full of essential vitamins and minerals for added health benefits.

The Caramel Apple Chewy Bars, were hand downs the winner to my boys.  They LOVE these.  I liked the bar size, as there is no waste left behind.  No wonder my boys love these bars...dried apples, caramel and cinnamon...what is there not to like.  They felt like they were getting a treat, and I felt like I was getting a break!  Yes, they are finally asking for a healthy snack.  Thanks Enjoy Life.

The Very Berry Chewy Bars reminded me of a breakfast bar with the filling in the center, but Very Berry Bars have all the tasty ingredients mixed all together...cranberries......raspberry juice.....I can't imagine the love that is put into each and every ingredient. 


The Sunbutter Crunch Chewy Bars totally puzzled me until I tried them.  They are salty, crunchy and sweet.  This was a new experience for me and I enjoyed it.  Such simple ingretant to create delicous food finds!

Gluten Free Cranberry/Flax Cookie Bites. 

These were amazing pillowly, moist, flavorful bites of heaven.  The cranberries added a nice tartness to these balanced and not overly sweet Gluten Free morsels.  I actually hide a few of these because my boys wouldn't stop eating them.  The packaging was also great, with a resealable container.

My boys adored the Monster Bites (and not only because of the fun name).  They are the perfect chocolate chip oatmeal cookie in my book.  They were also fluffy and moist.  I love the size of these Monsters.  They are perfect to satisfy a chocolate craving.

The Gluten Free Snickerdoodle Bites were crunchy yet light.  Each crumbly bite was full of cinnamon and sugar.  Well, it is now a proven fact you do not need gluten to make delicious desserts.
