Milo's Kitchen Home-Style Dog Treats

Hey Neighbors! We were on the road all day today, so this post is a little later in the day than I would like.  My box of Milo's Kitchen Home Style Dog Treats arrived the other day.  We tried to be quiet while opening them, but somehow our dogs seem to know when there is something for them to try.  By the time the box was opened and we had taken pictures we had two Shelties at our feet. My daughter and I both agree they smell good!  I think our Shelties agree too!  They certainly show up fast enough when the hear us open one of the bags.  I think I might have half a bag total left from the three bags of treats. We received three flavors of the Milo's Kitchen Dog Treats, Steak Grillers, Chicken Grillers and Grilled Burger Bites.  Sounds like summer flavors since they are grilled.  Yes, they actually look like pieces of grilled chicken or steak and the grilled burgers, look like a burger patty.  There are no artificial flavors or colors, and real chicken or

Summer and Strawberry Shortcake

Hey neighbors! Summer means fresh fruit!  What a great time of year to make your own Strawberry Shortcake.  Well, when I received my 3 - piece Bowl Set from Good Cook , sold exclusively at Bed, Bath and Beyond, Strawberry Shortcake was one of our first ideas for using our bowls. Let me tell you a little about the bowl set and then I will share what we did to make our Strawberry Shortcake.  The bowl set is actually a bowl, colander and a lid.  The colander sits inside the bowl, so you can place fresh fruit in there and let the juices flow through.  The lid is perfect once you have you fruit rinsed or cut up, you can store it in your refrigerator to chill. Start thinking watermelon!  there are so many ways to use this set.  You can use them all together, or you can drain your fruit in the colander and use the other bowl for mixing.  What a great combination. Now, on to our Shortcake.  First of all, let me say, my family prefers to have fresh baked shortcake over store bough

Celebrate Summer with Outer Spice!

Hey neighbors! Everyone knows that summertime includes grilling out.  So, when my Outer Spice Original Seasoning came in I immediately thought about grilling steaks.  So, much for thoughts and plans.  We had our steaks ready and wouldn't you know, about twenty minutes before grilling time a storm rolled in, thunder and lightning included.  I decided to cook my steak inside!  I still used my Outer Spice!

Fabuloos Dreams Personalized Books for Kids

Hey Neighbors! Fabuloos Dreams helps you create a personalized book for that special child in your life.  There are several story lines to choose from some specifically for a girl or boy, while others are gender neutral.  I chose _______'s Red Balloon and designed it for a little fellow I know named Jacob.  So, my book is titled, Jacob's Red Balloon. Here is how I went about designing my book.  First I went in and chose the story line I liked best.  I had to choose a good picture of Jacob's face. (There are some size requirements for the picture.)  I was also able to add three friends who would also appear in Jacob's book.  I used my two younger daughters and his older sister.  You can also add a small greeting inside the front cover of the book.  Obviously mine came to me, but you can send it directly to the child you are making it for. Then I just had to wait for the book to arrive.  It did!  The book is very well made and I love the bright colorful

MOTORWORKS for Summer Fun

Hey neighbors! Perhaps you remember when we previously reviewed MOTORWORKS from the Manhattan Toy Company , but if not, you will be totally surprised by some of their newest products.  I received their TR Convertible 3.0 and their Fuel and Shine Station.  These are perfect for little hands to play with both inside and out. Now, MOTORWORKS are so much fun to play with.  The vehicles can be pulled apart and you can interchange pieces, so be sure to purchase more than one!  Then not only can you design and re-design the look of your car, but there are accessories available too. MOTORWORKS are designed for ages 3 and up.  I am sure even slightly older children will enjoy mixing and matching the cars.  These cars are well made and should hold up the rough play of driving through the house, or exploring outside.  The convertible looks really nice! The Fuel and Shine Station is also well made.  It comes with a car wash and small gas pump.  There are sev
