MorningStar Farms Veggie Corn Dogs for breakfast, lunch or snack

mmmmmmmmm

Photobucket

WOAH!!!

Where is this review going? Get your mind out of the gutter please.

Yes, I decided after much debate to use the photo above.

I took the photo.

It's representative of the product.

The fact that it *may* or may not make you think of other things is completely out of my control.

But if it entices you to buy MorningStar Farms Veggie Corn Dogs then I don't think anyone's going to have a problem with me/it/this post.

Also, you should totally buy them.

Why buy MorningStar veggie corn dogs?

Taste - these were deelish! I wouldn't say they tasted like hot dogs cause they aren't hot gos. They are also not greasy and heavy like 'real' hot dogs. They just tasted good and we ate them up! Maybe lighter, lower salt too. I had mine with honey mustard sauce. The Twofer liked ketchup. What will you use?

Convenience - pop them in the microwave for a few seconds and you have a quick and easy breakfast! They store nicely in the freezer too.

Snackability - I am always looking for new after-school snack ideas. The Twofer come home from school famished and could eat and eat right up until and through dinner if I let them! I need snacks that keep them focused on homework but don't ruin their appetite. These were perfect!

Also, at just 150 calories with 2.5 grams of fat, they are definitely better for you than real corn dogs. Those vegetarians may be onto something.

Disclosure: I revceived a box of MorningStar veggie corn dogs at no cost for the purpose of this review. They really tasted good. All opinions expressed here are my own as was the decision to use that fab photo (you know you love it). This post was neither reviewed nor approved prior to being published - duh - or I would have probably had a more professional photo!

Secret ingredient to applying screen covers to iPhones and iPads

Have you ever tried to apply the plastic screen covers to a smart phone or iPad?

What's your trick?

Here's what most people I know do...

"I take it to the Apple store and make someone there do it!"

Seriously? There has to be a better way and I think I may have found it.

3M Natural View screen protectors

I was recently sent 3M Natural View screen protectors to review for my iPad.

My first thought was how am I going to get it on there all by myself?

But the benefits were too good not to try:

less glare

scratch resistant

stay clean edges

less smudging from all the Angry Bird games the girls play

3M Has the Secret Weapon...Tape!

See the video created by 3M engineers on how to apply their screen protectors

 

And, it works!

Less bubbles and lint!

I received a set of 3M Natural View screen protectors for my iPad to review and I did NOT watch this video. However, the squeegee (that helps push bubbles out) is built right in to the packaging and made it really easy to do it myself!

So far I've noticed a little less smudging but it's not completely smudge-proof. I don't think anything is though. I have noticed less reflection, and the edges really do repel dirt! Magic? I have no idea - but considering I think so many 3M products (post-it notes, removable tape) are magic I wouldn't be surprised.

Powermat is the BEST present for the person who has everything

Do you have one person on your list who has everything? The type of person who, if they don't have it, they go out and buy it for themselves the month before Christmas or their birthday leaving you with NO good gift ideas for them? (Special note to my brother, JP - you can stop reading right about now. Go on, click on a different post, check your email, blah blah, blah.)

My brother the gadget guy

My dad used to be this person. With his passing, my brother seems to have assumed the roll. He is always in line to get the newest iGadget. And, whatever gadget he doesn't have, he buys for himself! His little 4-person family alone has 3 iPhones, 2 iPods, and 1 iPod Touch. That's 6 devices...that I know of! I'm guessing there are a few lying around his office collecting dust bunnies.

This is an electronic family for sure. 

But what they DON'T have is a way to charge all of their technology!

Powermat A Great Gift that Saves Charging Space

I received the Powermat 2x Portable Wireless charger to review and now I know what I'm getting my brother for Christmas! His family NEEDS this, and I know for sure he doesn't have one yet and has no plans to buy one...score!

Powermat 2X Portable Wireless Charger

More than that, Powermat will save them space and electricity. Powermat can charge multiple devices wirelessly and knows when they are fully charged so it can cut power. Simply place the device with either the appropriate receiver or universal cube attachment onto the Powermat and it starts charging.

For items with a Powermat receiver (sold separately based on your device) you will feel a little 'handshake' to know it's charging. For items using the Powercube (universal cube with tips to fit hundreds of devices including phones, PSP, Nintendo DS, etc) you'll see a light go on. What's great about the Powermat I received is that it has a rechargable battery so you can take it with you and continue to charge even if there is no outlet around!

How's that for a gift for the person who has everything?

I think I nailed it.

Happy shopping! Have you found a great gift for the person who has (or buys themselves) everything?

Janine

Disclosure: I received a Powermat 2X charger and two receivers for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own and I really am going to give one of these to my brother so JP, if you are still reading, Merry Christmas! This post was neither reviewed nor approved prior to being published.

Johnson's Baby Oil with Shea & Cocoa Butter Help Fight the Winter Itch

One word: backscratcher

Maybe it's two words but around here it's one and it can mean only one thing: Winter.

You see everyone in my family gets dry, itchy skin during the winter. With the heat blasting and us always forgetting to turn the humidistat on - we just can't keep our skin moist and delicious like in the summer when I slather sun lotion on every hour.

And so we scratch.

We fight over the backscratcher. We start on our backs, but then eventually that scratcher is all over us. You can't just stop at your back!

Until now.

Johnson's Baby Oil now has other good stuff in it!

Johnson & Johnson Johnson's Baby Creamy Oil

 

I was picked to sample the new Shea & Cocoa Butter products of Johnson's baby oil. The set came with baby oil, baby oil gel, and creamy baby oil. Perfect! Something for everyone!

I love the baby oil - I use it to take off makeup, on my nail cuticles, my heels, and especially after the shower. It not only smells slightly of a tropical island (warming me up) but it really takes away the dry skin itch.

The Twofer love the Johnson & Johnson Johnson's Baby Creamy Oil - they get especially dry on ther legs and the tops of their hands. I mean, to the point where the skin is red and raw. The creamy oil wasn't greasy but  also was gentle enough that it didn't sting the raw red areas of their hands which can often happen with other lotions.

The Mister doens't know it yet but he's going to love the baby oil gel - as someone who cannot stand greasy lotion, especially in summer, my husband will love the dry feeling of the gel. It goes on smooth AND clear so there isn't all that rubbing in.

Have you tried a scented Johnson's Baby Oil product yet? What other way do you use baby oil?

The Nintendo DC Stylus Becomes a Wand in Wizards of Waverly Place Spellbound Game

image via Disney on Photobucket

Every Wizard Needs a Wand

Both girls love the show, 'Wizards of Waverly Place' on the Disney Channel and now with the new Wizards of Waverly Place Spellbound for the Nintendo DS they can feel like a part of it. In this game the stylus becomes a wand where you cast spells, move and freeze objects, even turn characters into hamsters! Use magic to complete wizarding tasks and unlock outfits for Alex. Em will love dressing Alex in over 25 outfits, and El will enjoy exploring the different locations from the TV show like the Sub Station and the Loft.

The game is rated E for Everyone so it's safe for young kids and retails for $29.99 so it won't break the bank.

What other Disney show DS games do your kids enjoy?
