Have you tried Scott Naturals Tube-Free Toilet Paper?

In the past I have often wondered what all of the hype was about with the Scott Naturals Tube- Free Toilet Paper. I mean really, how much different could this toilet paper be from all of the others? Well, now I can tell you there is a difference, a big difference! I recently was lucky enough to be chosen to try Scott Tube Free as a member of CrowdTap. From the moment I took the package out of the box, I could already see the difference. Without the tube, the roll was bigger and guess what that means? More TP for the money!

I really did not think there would be that much of a difference but once I put the Scott roll next to a competitor brand with the tube, the difference was very clear, there is a lot more paper on the Scott roll! More paper means more value and no tube means less waste in the landfills.

I get to save money, buy a quality product and do my part for the environment!! A win all the way around!  The Scott toilet paper is incredibly soft and I love the ridged texture that ensures a clean trip to the bathroom every time. It is extremely absorbent so I know that we can use less paper with the same or better results than other products!  Check out my pictures and see for yourself!

Head over to the website and take the pledge to go tube free and get a valuable coupon!!

Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream Review: Amazing Results

I don’t know very many women who are not worried about their skin as they age. We have all done things to our skin that we regret as we get older and try to combat the damage. In my twenties I used to be a sun worshipper and that has resulted in more age spots than I should have at age 44. I have been blessed to have very few wrinkles and my biggest concern is the small laugh lines around my eyes.

Red blotchy skin before Anavita

I have tried just about every product there is to fight the battle and some have been better than others but none of them have really taken care of my concerns, That is until now. I was given the opportunity to try Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream. Whenever I try a new product I go into it with low expectations and if I find that it really does what it says it will do then I am pleasantly surprised. With Anavita I was not just surprised but excited! After the first day of using this cream I could already feel a difference in my skin. My face felt softer than it had in a long, long time. I could feel my skin felt tighter and lifted as well. I used it on my neck as well and really see the difference in the firmness of that skin. After having had bariatric surgery and losing a lot of weight quickly, even my neck had sagging skin and now I don’t.

By the time I had used the cream daily for a week, I could SEE the difference in my skin. Those fine lines were less visible and the uneven red tone to my skin was starting to even out. This has always been a sore spot for me because I would love to be able to wear less or even no foundation but with the redness I have to. Now I am not ready to go makeup free just yet but with the results I am already seeing, I know it’s in my future. The cream is thicker and smoother than any other cream or serum I have tried and it stays on the skin and does not run. A little goes a long way and it absorbs quickly into the skin. Imagine, after continued use, looking ten years younger!!  I love the scent of it as well, it smells kind of like citrus to me.

I am now at the end of the second week with this amazing moisturizer and I am absolutely in love! Now if your hubby is like mine then he doesn’t usually notice things like haircuts or new clothes and definitely not skin changes, but my hubby shocked me just the other day when he said ” Hey, what happened to those lines around your eyes?” I almost cried from joy!  He then touched my face and said ” Wow your skin is so soft!”. This is high praise coming from the man who didn’t notice my hair color change for 3 days 🙂

The colors are bright and vibrant and are very well made. You cannot go wrong with silver, red and white ornaments. They are the perfect addition to my tree!

I love the way the large, red bows look on my front and back doors! There is just something about a ribbon that makes everything look more festive. They are a great size for the doors and easily attach with a twist tie that is included.

My favorite item I received is the silver sleigh. This beauty will be sitting in front of the tree with some faux gifts sitting inside. I may even add an ornament or two to make it look amazing.

Mrs. Cavanaugh’s Home Fashioned Chocolates : ” The Gift Delicious”

Who doesn’t love chocolate? It’s one of those treats that can make you happy when your down, smile when your sad and completely change your mood with just one delicious taste. Chocolate can make you feel like your wrapped in a warm hug from an old friend. It doesn’t judge or let you down.  Chocolate is life!


My entire life has been devoted to the search for the perfect chocolate and what I have found is that there isn’t really a bad chocolate, some just taste better than others. I was recently given the opportunity to try Mrs. Cavanaugh’s Home-Fashioned Chocolates as a member of US Family Guide. I never turn down an opportunity to try a new chocolate because you never know when you are going to find that one piece that you cannot live without, that changes your views on chocolate forever. This chocolate is a cut above other products I have tried. 10419546_10205581085516688_2160280726414225279_n

I had bariatric surgery five months ago and I can no longer eat chocolate that is not sugar-free ( thank goodness that have that option available) but my hubby is as big a chocolate lover as I am so he was pleased to have an entire box and 4 bars of chocolate all to himself. His words were ” I’ll fall on the knife for you” .  The box we received has ” The Gift of Delicious” stamped on it and truer words have never been spoken. According to the hubby it is most definitely a gift. Our box is  or should I say, was, the 9 oz Traditional Milk Chocolate variety box. It contained such goodies as maple nut, raspberry cream, rum victoria and one my hubby called “pure Heaven”, coconut mound. His mouth actually watered while eating this one. He loves coconut and says he could eat a whole box of just this one!


Marie Cavanaugh started with her aunt’s recipe for a pecan roll and hand dipped chocolates in her South Dakota home and in 1972 moved to Utah where they have grown their business to what it is today. These days Mrs. Cavanaugh’s offers many different treats to choose from:

  • Traditional chocolates
  • Most famous chocolates
  • Sugarless chocolates
  • Cherry cordials
  • Gourmet caramel apples
  • Peanut brittle
  • chocolate covered nuts and raisins and pretzels


and so much more. You can create your own box or choose one of their’s. You can also choose gift baskets for that someone special on your Christmas Shopping list. In my family, after Thanksgiving dinner, we draw names for Christmas gift giving and I am so hoping that I get my dad’s name because there are many choices that he would love to have! Each treat is made from fresh ingredients with no preservatives.

Make sure you head over to Mrs. Cavanaugh’s Home-Fashioned Chocolates and browse around because I am sure you will find an old favorite as well as a new one. Make sure you sign up for the free email newsletter where you can be the first to know about new products and promotions. Head over ans like Mrs. Cavanaughs on Facebook Twitter and on Pinterest

Cooking With Arla Dofino Cheese

If you are a regular reader of my blog then you know I love to cook and am always looking for new ingredients to change up my recipes with. When it comes to cheeses I am very particular about which products I use. I recently got the chance to try Arla Dofino cheeses and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and flavor of these amazing cheeses.

In a past post I told you about how I used the Creamy Havarti in my family famous lasagna recipe. Now this is a huge deal for me because this recipe has remained untouched for more than twenty years. For me to step outside my comfort zone and use a new and untried cheese in my recipe is very unlike me but I am so glad I did.  The taste was amazing. The creamy havarti has a light, buttery flavor and melts so well that it blended completely with the other cheeses I use.

I next used the creamy havarti in my cheesy potato recipe. Now this is also a long-standing recipe in my kitchen arsenal and it is much requested at every party or pot luck that we attend as well as family dinners. I added it to the mix and placed it in a pan that was popped into the oven.  When it was done the cheese was bubbly and brown and melted perfectly. I worry whenever I use something new that the family won’t like it but my worry was for naught because, like usual, there were no leftovers and everyone raved about the flavor.10699738_10205346663176276_4765167535705223976_o

Now when I find a product that makes this much difference in my beloved recipes, I tend to stick with it!

Since trying these two recipes I have also purchased the havarti with jalapeno for my fiesta chicken bake recipe. Now I am not a fan of spicy cheeses but this one packed just a little punch of heat without overpowering my recipe. What I really love about these cheeses are that they contain very minimal ingredients and no chemicals and preservatives.  They are packed with protein and flavor!!


If you are looking for a cheese with amazing flavor and texture and at a great price, Arla Dofino will make a great addition to your kitchen and any recipe!     #GotItFree   #BzzAgents

Fiesta bake I threw together with stuff in my kitchen and its amazing. see recipe in the recipe tab on the main page of my blog.
