Giada De Laurentiis at Target

The lovely and talented Giada De Laurentiis has created a line of gourmet Italian favorites for Target.  They are delicious!

My family wanted to try the unique shaped pasta “Galletti”.  It’s like elbow macaroni with a flair for fashion! It has a beautifully ruffled edge with a hearty texture that holds up nicely with a thick, meaty sauce. 

Along with our loaf of french bread we tried Giada’s (I just love saying her name – ‘Giah-dah’ ;-> ) Herb and Lemon dipping oil.  Light and lively.  We spooned her Pepper & Eggplant Tomato Spread on toasted baguette.  Just delicious!

Enjoy an Italian feast with your family tonight and try Giada’s offerings.  You can find Giada’s new food line at Target stores nationwide.

The Man Test

OK.  It’s practically Father’s Day and you haven’t found the right gift for the dad in your life. I have a great recommendation for you, visit your book store and pick-up “The Man Test” from Robert Dodenhoff.

It’s fun, it’s “one-size-fits-all” and it teaches the man in your life lessons that will take them through their daily lives making them better people.  (Sure… yeah… it’s possible.  Did mention it’s fun?)

The Man Test helps him prove his knowledge in the “real man” style categories, from finance and negotiation to etiquette and domestic skills.  Here’s a sample:

The Test on Urban & Outdoor Survival –

1. A bear is about to attack you. You should…

(a) Run away as fast as you can
(b) Slowly back away, speak softly, and avoid eye contact
(c) Stand tall, act aggressive, and shout

2. (True/False) Your chances of surviving a plane crash improve 40% by sitting towards the front.

3. In a hurricane, what are you most likely to die from?

(a) High winds and flying debris
(b) Government rescue efforts
(c) Inland flooding
(d) Starvation

This will be a fun gift that will be a wonderful conversation starter as well as provide some valuable information. 

The Man Test is sold at major bookstores and retails for $12.99.

Vapur Anti-Bottle

I recently had a house full of children that were partying the afternoon away celebrating the last day of the school year.  Since I had an audience I showed them the Vapur Anti-Bottle and asked if they thought it would make a good Father’s Day gift.  The rousing response was, “Yes!”.

One child said, “My dad is a runner and this bottle would be perfect for him because it folds up.”  True.  The Vapur Anti-Bottle is constructed of three layers of ultra-durable plastic that can be folded up when empty.  Another little helper thought that they clip was a great way for their dad to clip it his belt loop while he’s mowing the lawn.  And with the 4 liter size it’s perfect not to be too heavy to weigh you down or get in the way.

The Vapur Anti-Bottle are completely BPA-free  and dish washer safe for the top rack.  It’s freezable too!  Fill it half way and place it in the freezer overnight and then fill it the rest of the way with water in the morning. You’ll have an icy-cold beverage for hours.

The Vapur Anti-Bottle is available in sizes .5 Liter and .4 Liter with prices ranging from $9.99 to $15.99.  You’ll find Vapur Anti-Bottle sold through out the U.S. (click here for locations).

Dr. Drip Coffee

Photobucket
A cool, little gadget has come to the coffee world, Dr. Drip.  Each Dr. Drip contains all natural, fair-trade and organically grown coffee specially selected from some of the world’s best growing regions. Further, Dr. Drip packaging and filters are recyclable, compostable and earth-friendly – no plastic pods or machinery needed!

Dr. Drip practices the classic drip brewing method to brew one perfect cup at a time.  You simply open the package and remove the top of the filter to expose the coffee.  Push the two ends together to create a little dome to place atop your mug and slowly pour hot water over the grounds. 
This is no “instant” coffee, not at all.  What you are about to enjoy are delicious ground coffee beans that will make you smile.  Well, I did anyway.

Dr. Drip offers these four 100% Arabica bean blends:

The Organic Tonic: A 100% USDA Certified organic blend
The Ultimate Pick Me-Up: A dark roasted Sumatra blend for the truly bold and brazen.
The Double Daily RemedyTheir premium signature blend is the answer to all that ails you.
The Decaf EnergizerResounding proof that there’s more to love than just the caffeine buzz.

If you are looking for a way to take the coffee experience to the office, camping, or on a road trip, Dr. Drip is the perfect way to go!  Visit Dr. Drip to purchase.  http://drdripcoffee.com/buy.php

LoveSac – Slippers

Photobucket
LoveSac is an idea that started with an 18 year old and the desire for an oversized big bean bag chair.  (See full story here… it’s good !)  Now LoveSac products range from couches to pillows to comforters to slippers.  And from first hand knowledge I will say, the slippers are fantastic! 
The LoveSac Phur Slippers are a hypo allergenic polyester knit that is surprisingly durable and beyond soft.  It’s like having cushy clouds on your feet that can handle a little stroll on the sidewalk to get the morning paper.  Make boots next, please Dear LoveSac!
LoveSac Phur Slippers range in sizes Small to Ex-Large and retail for $49.00.  Dad will love to receive these slippers on Father’s Day.  Visit http://www.lovesac.com/ to find a location near you or to order on-line.

Chex Mix Muddy Buddies Giveaway!

Chex Mix Muddy Buddies offers a unique combination of Corn Chex cereal, peanut butter, and chocolate, dusted with a powdery sweet coating. I found it to be not overly sweet, which is a bonus in my book.  My husband has asked me to hide the Muddy Buddies since he’s having a Weight Loss Competition with co-workers  ;-> . It told him it’s made with 50% less fat than regular potato chips so less guilt!  (He’s still not going for it.  Fine.  More for me!)
This particular blend was a holiday selection from Chex, but since the response was so positive Chex has made this a year-around offering!  And I’m fortunate that I get to share one Chex Mix Muddy Buddies prize pack with one lucky winner.  Here’s what you get:
