Tomato Cutting Board and Nylon Knife From Curious Chef


This is a really nice one! Curious Chef sent me the most adorable little Tomato shaped

cutting board and one of their medium nylon knives. My daughters could not wait to use them. We were not really doing anything that night to use the cutting board, so they decided to slice cookie dough and make cookies. Not a big test for the knife, but they enjoyed themselves anyway. They did get to use the cutting board and knife later in the week on potatoes that I had already sliced up. It worked well and I did not have to worry about them slipping and cutting themselves. Thank you Curious Chef!!

Here is a little information about the company from their site:

Tropical Traditions Review

HI Neighbors,

Tropical Traditions recently sent me a sample (32 fl. oz) of their Virgin Coconut Oil. Here is some information from their website:
"When I first read about the wonderful benefits of coconut oil, I asked my wife Marianita, who grew up on a coconut plantation in the Philippines, if there was a more natural way to extract the oil from the coconut, so that we didn’t have to buy the refined coconut oils found in all the stores in the Philippines. She said there was a method the older generation used to extract the oil by grating the fresh coconut, extracting the coconut milk, and then letting the coconut milk stand in a covered container for about 24 hours. After about 24 hours, the oil naturally separates from the water producing a crystal clear oil that retains the full scent and taste of coconuts. So we started making our coconut oil that way and using it for our cooking needs with our three children. We couldn’t believe how wonderful it tasted, and how great we felt. We had been living on Mt. Banahaw in the Philippines for almost two years by that time, and in the year 2000 telephone service was provided to our rural farming community, allowing me to put up a website about our Philippine Herbs. I decided to also put our Virgin Coconut Oil up on the website, not really expecting people to order it because it was a bit expensive since we had to hire people to make the oil, and shipping cost a lot because of the weight. We were so surprised when people started ordering, and then re-ordering it because they felt so great after using it! They told us there was no other coconut oil like it on the market. (See a sample of testimonies below.)
Before long we had businesses contacting us asking how to order it in bulk. So we discussed how we could mass produce this kind of oil, and almost abandoned the product because we didn’t want to lose the traditional way of making it. In the end, we decided to just keep making it the same way, by having others in our coconut community also make the oil the traditional way. Many of our producers are in areas so remote, that if they did not use their coconuts to produce Virgin Coconut oil for us, no one would buy their coconuts because it would cost too much to transport them to manufacturing plants. In these areas, the coconuts generally just fell to the ground unused until we started training people to make our Virgin Coconut Oil. We were the first ones to export Virgin Coconut Oil from the Philippines to the US market. The success overwhelmed us.
Today, more than 6 years later, there are other companies now selling coconut oil again in the US, most of them mass-produced by machines. But we are committed to time-honored traditional practices that have produced healthy coconut oil for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Our producers have learned a lot of things over the years, since most of them have been producing this oil for over 6 years now. They have learned how to pick out the best coconuts from each harvest that produce the best quality oil, for example. Their most recent discovery came in 2007 when certain groups in rural areas had problems with water sources. Water is needed to make the coconut milk from which the oil is extracted. Using true Filipino ingenuity, they started collecting and using the pure nutritious coconut water from inside the organic coconuts instead. They noticed that the water separated from the oil much quicker, and that the end result was a higher quality and better tasting Virgin Coconut Oil. Independent laboratory analysis shows this to be one of the highest quality coconut oils on the market, having the highest levels of antioxidants. This enhanced Virgin Coconut Oil is now in the US market under the Tropical Traditions Gold Label brand. It meets our strictest standards to earn this designation. Today when you buy Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, you are buying the highest quality coconut oil we have to offer, and it is still made by hand and benefiting families in the rural areas of the Philippines where the coconuts grow."

"How is This Oil Used?

Virgin Coconut Oil is a food, and is one of the best cooking oils you can use. It has been a staple cooking oil for thousands of years in tropical climates. As a cooking oil, its chemical structure is kept in tact and therefore is resistant to mutations of fatty acid chains even when used in higher cooking temperatures, unlike most vegetable oils. Research shows that the medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil boosts the body’s metabolism, raises body temperatures, and helps provide greater energy which can lead to weight loss. For hundreds of tasty recipes from people who use coconut oil, visit"

If you like cooking with an oil really good for your family this would be for you. We made some pancakes and my son hammed it up for a picture. This is an item to share At the Fence. My daughter (24) wants to try some on her hair as she has heard that it is good for your hair.
Disclaimer: Tropical Traditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product. Everything in quotations was taken directly from the Tropical Traditions Website. All thoughts and opinions are mine.

ECO STORE REVIEW/Citrus Based Spray Cleaner

Hi Neighbor,

The Eco Store recently sent me 2 products for review. The first being their Citrus Based Spray Cleaner. They also sent me their Herbal Fresh All Natural Shampoo for Dogs. Unfortunately I have been unable to use the second product yet as it has been so cold here lately, so I will do a second review later.

"Eco Store has no nasty chemicals. No toxic petrochemicals No phosphates No benzene No bleach No nitrates No ammonia No chlorine No EDTA No synthetic dyes or perfumes"

I personally love the citrus smell, and that there are no harmful chemicals in this product. My 9 year old was excited, because she was able to use this product. She loves to help clean, but there are products I will not let her touch. She thought it was great to be given charge for the day of clean up in the kitchen. My bottle is almost empty.

Here is their own description of their Citrus Spray Cleaner-"Ecomommas can go room to room with this product. Simple to use yet high performance, ecostore Lemon Spray Cleaner is the ideal alternative to conventional, toxic products. This citrus based solvent will work wonders on almost any household surface. Have black kitchen appliances? We've been told via many testimonials that it is just awesome. And, of course, if it’s an Ecostore product, it contains No nasty chemicals. For your health, for your family and for the planet. (17 fluid ounces)
  • D-Limonene (from citrus)
  • Palm and coconut based non-ionic and anionic surfactants
  • Fatty acid derivative
  • Ethanol
  • Filtered water"

Eco store carries many products for your home and personal use. They have bath and body products, cleaning supplies, baby care and pet products. Each item is eco friendly. And the best news is they are presently having a sale on many of their products. An added BONUS! Visit their website here.

This is definitely a product I would use again. I would like to recommend this product to you!

Hey neighbors,

I have a new giveaway. It is a $25 gift certificate to Modest Apparel USA. This company/ministry is dedicated to modest apparel for ladies. They carry clothing for both girls and ladies. I was impressed by the variety they carry. Anything from skirts, dresses, and jumpers, to school uniforms, and sleepwear. They even carry maternity clothing.

The main goal of Modest Apparel USA is: "
We are a family owned home-based business. Our desire is to offer women an alternative to the promiscuous fashions that are prevalent in clothing stores today. We have spoken to many different women about shopping for clothing for themselves and their daughters. Time and time again we were told how difficult it is to find clothing that wasn't

skin tight or that didn't reveal more of their body than they wanted too. Simply put, modest clothing is hard to find. So we decided to have clothing made that we knew was modest, and it's all made in the United States of America. We have very high standards for quality and we will not sell an inferior garment. If you would like to see a certain style of dress offered here on please e-mail us with a comment or perhaps a link to a picture. If we think it would be a style that would appeal to all our customers, we will consider adding it to our clothing line."

Modest Apparel USA is also available for wholesale orders. Go here.
Now Laurie is offering the winner of the giveaway a $25 gift certificate to be used at her site Modest Apparel USA.

Hi neighbors, CLOSED

My daughter sure was surprised when she got to be the one to try these new shoes out! As I opened the box she was breathing down my neck waiting to see them. U*neaks sent us one pair of White Paris Lace sneakers along with 4 pairs of socks, her favorite being the Princess/Splatters Crew Socks. She immediately tried them on and wore them around the home only. She has decided she will not wear them out here as we are up north right now and there is snow and they might get dirty! She loves them! The only thing I don't like? They only go to child's size 3.5. I have another daughter who would love them, but they don't come in her size!! These shoes are well made, and my daughter thinks the socks feel great. She is wearing a pair to wander the house right now. This is definitely a thumbs up product.

U*neaks has sneaker style shoes with clear plastic window to co-ordinate with their specially designed socks, to customize your shoe each time you wear them.

"U*neaks brand of customizable footwear was created by Ingenuity Express Corp. in Somerset, NJ. The footwear concept was invented and developed by company founders Steve Braynock and Jeff Gabriele, Ingenuity Express’ CEO. Both Rutgers University alum, Steve Braynock, came up with the product concept in 1990 and shared it with Jeff in 2003. Together they developed U*neaks, which included a collaboration with the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in Manhattan, N.Y. On September 9th, 2008 Steve and Jeff were awarded patent number 7,421,806 for their customizable footwear system."

I'd like to recommend this product to you!

Jeff at U*neaks has been kind enough to offer one pair of shoes and two pair socks to one At the Fence Neighbor!

Go to U*neaks and look through their shoes and socks, then come back and leave a comment on which shoe and socks you would choose if you won! COMMENTS ARE AT THE TOP OF THIS POST. US RESIDENTS ONLY.

Hi Neighbors,
I have another GREAT giveaway! Answers in Genesis has graciously given a $25 gift certificate for their store. Answers in Genesis or AIG is one of the VERY BEST at educating families about Creation versus Evolution. It all has to do with your world view. Ken Ham had a vision for this museum and what a vision it was! The Museum is in Kentucky, just south of Cincinnati. Information follows:
2800 Bullittsburg Church Rd. Petersburg, KY 41080
* Located seven miles west of the Cincinnati Airport

We purchased a 5 year membership over a year ago and have returned there 14-15 times. They have many creation displays, a planetarium show that is magnificent, a petting zoo, and speakers that hold the interest of everyone in the family. My younger daughters of course love to see Buddy Davis. He sings about creation and often has a small show or craft activity for the children. I think they know most of his songs by heart! Two of my other children enjoy Jason Lisle and Carl Kerby. We even manage to catch them when they speak in churches we are around.

This ministry has strengthened my children in their ability to deal with people who believe in
evolution when we are on the street. When I get stuck I call one of them over.
The Museum has a store, which is where the gift certificate comes in. They carry just about anything you could desire on creation and then some. From dvds to homeschool material, to t-shirts, childrens books, toys, all in one store. My youngest daughter loves the Kids Answer Series. And for 7th grade up they have the Answers Academy. A set with dvds, workbooks, leaders guide, etc. Some of my older children have done this. Visit the store here:

I would like to recommend this ministry to you!
This Giveaway will also be posted on my blog Wife of a Street Preacher, but you may only enter on one of the two sites. Please do not enter on both. This will close at 11:59 pm CST on Friday December 18th. I will use to choose the winner. Please leave a way to contact you.

At The Fence

Hello All,

I have started this blog to review products and conduct giveaways. This blog will be family friendly. It will also be run under my Christian convictions which means, I will not review any products I do not believe appropriate for a Christian home.

The title explains my idea behind this blog. I want this to be the type of information that women used to share over the fence as neighbors. You know, "I just tried this new recipe and my family loved it!", or "This new product really helped when the baby was teething." Just a friendly way to share information that might help each other.

I will also list other blogs that might be of help. Do not take a listing as full endorsement of the blog. It just means I found something there of interest or that was useful. Perhaps a giveaway, is listed.

Please be patient with me as I work through the first posts etc. and get the blog set up. Thank you.
Your neighbor,
