Pipers Crisp Co. Potato Chips



Several years ago we visited the UK and I remember thinking how even the normal things tasted different there. Better different. Cleaner, not as full of chemicals as we tend to have in the US. 

Recently I had the chance to sample Pipers Crisp Co. Potato Chips and I am going to tell you they are SO GOOD. They are super crispy, like what Americans would call Kettle Chips. The flavors are so delicious, and unlike many I have seen here. 


My favorite is definitely the Cheddar & Onion. The onion flavor really compliments the cheddar, and the cheddar has a nice strong flavor, not a fake flavor.

Pipers Crisp Co. Potato Chips are also available in:

  • Sea Salt
  • Cider Vinegar & Sea Salt
  • Chorizo 
  • Wild Thyme & Rosemary 
  • Sweet Chili
  • Tomato 
  • Black Pepper & Sea Salt
  • Unsalted
I tried a few of the flavors and really liked them all. You can purchase them online here

The Piggy Story Brilliant Crayon Paint Sticks



My kids would paint all day if I let them. But painting is soooo messy that I tend to not let them paint unless it's a very controlled situation. Until, recently when I discovered Brilliant Crayon Paint Sticks.

I love that the paint sticks come in so many varieties and colors, whatever your little artists is into you can find a color set to match! Check out all the Piggy Story products here

Boardwalk Craft Beet Pretzel Mixes + Giveaway!


Back in the 70's when I was a toddler, my dad was known for his beer cookies. He made them, and they became so famous he started selling them in stores. Years later he sold the company, but I still remember back to those cookies when I was young, and feeling so grown up that I could eat cookies with beer.

Tips to Keep Your Pet Healthy This Summer

Just like people, pets require special treatment during the heat of summer to protect them from dehydration, heat stroke, and other warm weather ailments.  Here are some summertime pet tips from NHV Natural Pet Products, makers of veterinarian-approved and formulated plant-based natural supplements from organically grown and wild crafted herbs, to keep your cat, dog, rabbit or other pet animal safe during the summer months:

Hydrate Well Ensure that your pets have access to water at all times.  Try to keep water fresh and cool if possible (place dish in the shade or place ice cubes in the water).  Remember to put out multiple bowls on really hot days.  When traveling with your pet, always carry a compact portable pet water bowl.

Don’t Leave Me in the Car - Do not leave your pets in the car – even if it is just for a couple minutes and the windows are down or if it is running with the air conditioning on.  Temperatures elevate quickly in vehicles and it only takes minutes to cause irreversible organ damage or worse.

Tick and Flea Battles
Furry pets are at risk of contracting tick-borne infections like Lyme disease. Comb for fleas daily and treat their bedding with citrus extract spray (steep lemon slices in water overnight and then use the lemon infused water as a spray). Use NHV Target Spray to help keep flea, lice, ticks and mosquitoes off of your pets - it is all-natural and works quickly. It’s a must-have summer tool.

Hotspots
Hot weather, insect bites and sweat often makes pets scratch aggressively, leading to hotspots. Keep NHV All Clear Ointment handy. It soothes inflamed skin and reduces itching. It is all natural so there’s no fear of the pet licking it, though you might want to let the cream soak in properly before your pet starts biting the spot.

Know the Signs of Heat Stroke – Excessive panting, reddish tongue, lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea are all signs of heat stroke. If you notice any of these, get your pet to a cool shaded area immediately. Soak a towel in lukewarm or moderately cool water and wrap your pet in it. And rush to your vet.

Cooling Off Aids
If it gets scorching hot where you are and if it’s possible, get your pet a kiddy pool or a sprinkler. You want to give them a hydrated cool spot to sit in. If you notice your pet getting restless because of the heat, place a wet towel under his or her body. On hot summer days, this is more comfortable than their warm bedding or the hot floor.

Humidity isn’t just hard on hair. When the humidity is high, it can cause a pet’s temperature to rise because they become unable to cool themselves.  Body temperatures can rise very quickly and become dangerous. Be sure to keep your pet indoors or out of the hot sun.

Made in the Shade - Many cats and dogs love to bask in the sun, but too much time in the sun can cause heat stroke and even increase the risk of developing skin cancers.  Be sure to provide your furry friends with a shady area to retreat to, especially if they are in an enclosure.  Also be aware that pets can get sunburns and burns too – ear tips are sensitive to the sun, paw pads are sensitive to hot surfaces, etc.  To help protect and soothe paw pads, try NHV Heal Care Ointment for cats and dogs.

Circulate Indoors - If your house does not have air conditioning, ensure that you have some sort of airflow/ventilation.  Even a slight breeze will be appreciated by your furry friend.  If possible elevate their bed so that air can get underneath – you could try a cat hammock.  Please note that fans do not cool pets as well as they do for us humans, so do not rely on a fan only.

Walk with care. Exercise will need to be limited on especially hot days.  Try to go for walks or have play time early in the morning or later in the evening when it is cooler and try to keep the exertion level lower.  Instead of using the sidewalk, go on the grass, it will be easier on their paws.  Make sure to keep a bottle of water with you when you leave the house and one for your pet as well. During the summer, joints are prone to becoming more swollen than usual, which can sometimes be caused by water retention. Use NHV Turmeric twice daily to help reduce inflammation and pain.

Road trip! When traveling or on road trips with pets give them a small meal 2 hours prior to traveling in the car. This will help alleviate car sickness. Secure pets safely in carriers that are large enough to move around and are well ventilated. Start NHV Matricalm 1 week before the trip and during the trip to help calm and reduce agitation in pets. It’s all natural, and it’s also safe for long-term use.

NHV NATURAL PET PRODUCTS provides veterinarian-formulated herbal supplements derived from organically grown or ethically wild crafted herbs to support the health and well-being of pets including dogs, cats and other small animals. All supplements are manufactured at a state-of-the-art GMP and FDA certified facility. NHV also offers vet consultations to provide professional support and guidance for disease prevention and integrative treatment of any condition.

Victoria Fine Foods Marinara Sauce with Avocado Oil


My kids would eat marinara sauce all day if they could. When I ask what they want for dinner, it's always some type of pasta with sauce. I think they forget they are half Indian.

I am always trying to find a better-for-them version of marinara sauce, and I love that I found this one from Victoria Fine Foods.

Our flagship, slow-cooked marinara gets an updated twist. For our Avocado Oil Marinara, we sauté our fresh onions and garlic in antioxidant rich avocado oil. Now you can have all the benefits of avocado oil with the traditional Italian flavor you already love. A delicious indulgence you can feel good about eating.
I love that it has avocado oil, so the kids get that nice dose of healthy fats. The sauce is beyond delicious too, I have used it in lasagna and baked ziti, both were a huge hit!

You can find Victoria Fine Foods products here.

Almondina Toastees


There are days when I want a snack, but I don't want anything too sweet, and I am not craving salty. Those are the days I grab a bag of Almondina Toastees. I can literally eat an entire bag. I have to remind myself to put the bag AWAY. They are so good. Nice light almond flavor paired with things like cranberry or lemon. Such a great treat to have with a cup of coffee or tea and just enough in a serving to tide me over. 

Cranberry Almond
Packed with almonds and cranberries. This bite sized snack has no salt or fat added, no cholesterol and no preservatives. Made from simple ingredients that are baked then toasted for a crispy crunch. Great with coffee & tea, yogurt or ice cream, excellent paired with cheeses and a great snack for children of all ages. A family recipe proudly baked in Maumee, Ohio.


Coconut Orange Almond
Loaded with roasted almonds and toasted coconut with a hint of orange citrus. This bite sized snack has no salt or fat added, no cholesterol and no preservatives. Made from simple ingredients that are baked then toasted for a crispy crunch. Great with coffee & tea, yogurt or ice cream, excellent paired with cheeses and a great snack for children of all ages.


Lemon Poppy Almond
Loaded with almonds and poppy seeds with a hint of lemon zest. This bite sized snack has no salt or fat added, no cholesterol and no preservatives. Made from simple ingredients that are baked then toasted for a crispy crunch. Great with coffee & tea, yogurt or ice cream, excellent paired with cheeses and a great snack for children of all ages


Sesame Almond
Packed with almonds and toasted sesame seeds. This bite sized snack has no salt or fat added, no cholesterol and no preservatives. Made from simple ingredients that are baked then toasted for a crispy crunch. Great with coffee & tea, yogurt or ice cream, excellent paired with cheeses and a great snack for children of all ages. 

My favorite is definitely the Lemon Poppy Almond. I love the lemon flavor with the almond, it's so good! I find my Almondina Toastees at Publix. You can see which stores sell them by you here

Reminiscent of an old-time favorite, Cravin' for Cookies & Cream Layered Cake features layers of melt-in-your-mouth cake; cubes of cookies; and silky vanilla cream mousse made with real cream cheese, smothered with dark chocolate ganache and a white chocolate drizzle. Cravin' for Cookies & Cream sets a new standard for gluten-free, giving dessert the decadence it deserves with a homemade taste and amazing, moist textures.

This Gluten Free cake is SO yummy. The kids and I all had it one night after dinner, and no one could even tell it was GF. Inspired by Happiness has a nice selection of gluten free cakes including:

  • Dreamin’ of Strawberries White Chocolate Shortcake and 
  • Dreamin’ of Chocolate Dark & White Chocolate Layer Cake
Our favorite by far though is the Cravin' for Cookies & Cream. You can purchase Inspired by Happiness products at Target.

Revell Junior Kit Disney's Cars 3

 When Riley was younger, he was really into Cars. Not just Disney Cars, but every kind of car. He knew all the makes and models and designs and which were his favorites. He knew the worlds fastest car, and what its top speed was, and he completely loved everything with an engine and 4 wheels.

I remember when he was going through this phase, that we bought him some of the Revell kits. He was so excited, but we had to help him put them together, which frustrated him. He was only 6 but he wanted to do it by himself. I am so excited to tell you that now there are kits from Revell that the little ones can do all on their own!



The Revell Junior Kit™-Disney•Pixar Lightning McQueen car is a model assembly kit that will engage your child in a way that ordinary toys can’t. Revell Model Assembly Kits provide engaging, productive play that teaches kids how to follow instructions, build logic, think dimensionally and participate in a non-stop adventure of imagination. The ergonomic screwdriver and unique screw and nut system allows your child to easily assemble and disassemble for hours of creative play. Easy touch hood activates the light up headlights and authentic Lightning McQueen “Ka-CHOW” & racing sounds! They will love the fun of building their very own Lightning McQueen car right from the Cars 3 movie!






The Revell Junior Cars 3 Kits can be purchased online or at Target for about $25 each.
