Review: Wild Thornberry's Season 1 DVD (May 17th)


We have two Nickelodeon fans in our household, notably shows like spongebob squarepants.  However, rewind back from 1998-2004 and most kids of my children's age were probably hooked on The Wild Thornberrys.  I've never seen the show having spend my childhood in England but I was interested in reviewing the DVD with my children as we enjoy movie monday nights and always on the lookout for fun shows or movies to watch. 

On Tuesday May 17th, The Wild Thornberrys Season 1 will be released on DVD.  We were excited to be given the opportunity to review this DVD before the general release.  The hit series follows the Thornberry family as they travel the world in their Communications Vehicle (or CommVee) looking for rare animals to film. After an encounter with an African shaman, their youngest child Eliza was given the power to speak to animals! Every episode in this adventure-packed DVD set follows Eliza as she comes face-to-face with an assortment of animals, continents and danger. Encounter wildlife in all its natural glory and eavesdrop on Eliza’s conversations with silverback gorillas, pythons, crested grebes, tapirs, capybaras, antelopes and opossums while the CommVee travels on!

We loved the vibrant animation which kept everyone's attention plus of course the interesting stroylines from their travels around the world.  I can see why this show lasted so long.  There is an all-star voice cast, including Lacey Chabert (Party Of Five), Tim Curry (The Adventures Of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius) and Flea (The Red Hot Chili Peppers) make season one of The Wild Thornberrys an epic family adventure.  There are 20 action-packed episodes which for us means hours of entertainment : )

Here's a sneak peak for you

Black and Decker Ultimate Sandwich Recipe Contest - Heavenly Grape Turkey Havarti


This recipe is part of the Black and Decker Ultimate Sandwich Recipe Contest that I'm participating in. I was provided a Black and Decker Convection Toaster Oven to aid in the Ultimate Sandwich recipe.  In our household we encourage everyone to eat healthily but also to be open to new foods.  My children are very good eaters and its amazing how many of their friends only eat chicken nuggets and fries every day.  So I wanted my sandwich recipe to be healthy yet delicious and unique tasting sandwich that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
My sandwich is titled Heavenly Grape Turkey Havarti

Ingredients
2 slices of wheat bread
2 thinly sliced turkey breast
2 thinly sliced Harvarti cheese with dill
Rocket leaves
Concord Grape Jelly

Directions
Set the toaster oven to toast setting


Place the 2 slices of bread in the toaster oven to toast
Remove the toast and place the turkey breast and harvarti cheese with dill slices onto the toast
Dot concord grape Jelly onto the Harvarti cheese

Set the toaster oven to broil setting and toast the open faced sandwich until cheese and grape jelly is nicely melted

Place rocket leaves onto grilled sandwich - add the remaining toast slice on top


Serve with apple and pear slices for a yummy healthy sandwich that the whole family will enjoy

The grape jelly brings in a new dimension that you do not expect for a turkey and cheese sandwich.  The rocket adds a spicy, warm and kind of nutty taste and is complimented well with the creamy harvarti dill cheese.  This got a huge thumbs up from the whole family and I hope it does too for the contest.
Disclosure: This post was written for Family Review Network & Black & Decker who provided the complimentary product for participation in this contest

Mommy Brings Home the Bacon Book Review

 

I'm a working mom by choice and while I love my job as a mom, wife and career woman, I do feel guilty at times such as when my children ask me to pick them up from school early like their friends mom's do.  I think every mom whether they work from home, work outside of the home and stay at home feel guilt in some way shape or form.  Even dad's feel guilt.  All that matters really is that my children are surrounded by love, be it from us, family their teachers and friends.

I jumped at the chance to review the book "Mommy brings home the bacon" written by Nikki Mark.  A few years ago, Nikki's older son (age four at the time) began questioning why she was going to work everyday. As he became increasingly more anxious about it, she searched online for a book to help her provide an explanation to which he could relate. After searching a few of the larger online booksellers, she quickly realized that children's books that discussed the topic of working moms were hard to come by, and the few that did, didn't work in her situation.


Mommy Brings Home the Bacon is a heartwarming children's book that explores the touching relationship between a young boy and his working mom. Told from the young boy's perspective, the whimsical narrative reflects a child's imaginative interpretation of why mommy goes to work, and the beautiful bond that develops as a result.

When my book arrived I was eager for bedtime to arrive so we could read the book together.  My daughter caught sight of the book and carried it upstairs for us to read.  My kids loved the title because it had the word bacon in it.  Half way through reading my daughter gives me a kiss on the cheek and gave me a long lasting hug.  I was overwhelmed by her love as I knew she "got it" (she's a smart cookie for only being 4).  I loved how bringing home the bacon for an adult means bring home the money but this is not quite explained in the book but it didn't need to be as kids understand abstract ideas.  The pictures were just wonderful and worked well with the narrative.  If you are working mom this is a must for your children's library and it gives you a little boost as you know your children now "get you".

Organica Pure: Organic Cocoa Butter Review and Giveaway

 


I have dry and sensitive skin so my beauty regime focuses on natural skin care or organic skin care.  This involves finding products that uses natural or organic products as much as possible. 


Organica Pure is a skincare line born from the obsessive and constant pursuit for purity. Their products harness the power of three simple, yet powerful ingredients: Cocoa, Honey, and Aloe Vera and combines them to produce high quality skincare products.


Its interesting to see Organica Pure focus on these three ingredients as these are household natural ingredients with known natural benefits to our health and wellbeing.  Organic Pure strives to maintain a limited ingredient list in each product by enhancing the potency of each component through strategic combinations.  This is perfect for me as fragrances and dyes as colorants are one of the main factors for my allergenic reactions.
I chose to review the Organic Body Butter.  Its is made with 100% Cocoa Butter - with no added emollients, additives and fillers.  Extracted from world-renowned Mayan cocoa beans.  For centuries, Mayans used pure cocoa butter to protect their skin. As soon as I opened the tub I could smell the cocoa, its a delightful smell and makes me want to grab a spoon to eat it.  The fast absorbing butter worked wonders on my dry hands and especially my feet.  I can't wait to see the long term effects as hands are always the tell tale sign of age...

Benefits of Cocoa butter
 Cocoa butter is an essential addition to your skincare regimen due to its high anti-oxidant content. These anti-oxidants not only heal dry, damaged skin, but they also provide a powerful defense against the free radicals that can age your skin prematurely. And, as an added treat, our Cocoa Butter's creamy texture and luscious scent will provide a soothing, calming, healthful experience for both mind and body.







 BUY IT

Frescetta by the Slice - fresh taste for a frozen pizza

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FRESCHETTA® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

FRESCHETTA® By The Slice Chicken Spinach Mushroom Hero

Monday Movie nights for us enable us to extend the weekend after getting back to work after a nice weekend off.  Once we get home from work I throw some food together and everyone gets in their pjs and we pop a movie in and just chill.  We often eat pizza as what's better than pizza and a movie.  Of course everyone has their own favorite pizza toppings and so we always have issues trying to accommodate everyone's taste.

Freschetta by the slice is a great compromise for us since we can all choose our own pizza.  Plus what's better than limiting how much we eat by only buying a slice each : )  With all real cheeses, flash-frozen vegetables and premium meats, Freschetta frozen pizza is a great choice for our family needs. Plus you can microwave your Freschetta by the slice for a quick cooking solution.  This would be perfect for my work lunches too.

Their flavors appeal to everyone in our family
