All Natural Brown Cow Plain Yogurt

Posted by on Thursday, 19 January, 2012

I’m on this new kick of eating plain yogurt, but was hard for me to find a decent brand. Until now. Out of the 3 grocery stores by me only one of them carries this particular brand and it’s more expensive but it’s freakin’ delicious. And this is coming from a girl who does NOT LIKE plain yogurt. I was tired of all the ridiculous amounts of sugar in the flavored ones, which lead me to my plain yogurt treasure hunt. And I’m happy to report that All Natural Brown Cow has changed my life. (Not really, I’m being dramatic.)… Read the rest

Raw Revolution Organic Live Food Bar Cashew & Agave Nectar

Posted by on Tuesday, 29 November, 2011

Raw Revolution Bars are tasty. More than tasty. They fill up my belly a little and quench my need for sugar. I heart sugar, and I will totally swear to you that my body actually needs it. But that doesn’t mean I want to stuff my face full of Little Debbies. I used to, though, before I began reading about the food I was putting into my mouth. I used to loooove the Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pie snacks. Let’s just do a little comparison of the ingredients for that and then the Raw Revolution Cashew & Agave Nectar Bar, … Read the rest

Novas Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Organic Red Wine

Posted by on Wednesday, 29 June, 2011

Another red wine produced by Emiliana is the Novas Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot. This wine is made from organic grapes and does contain sulfites but the bare minimum. What’s so great about an organic wine by Emiliana? Well, click here to read my last wine rant and click here to read about the actual vineyard.

This organic cab sav was not my favorite, but it was still good. I thought it was on the sweet side with strong flavors of berries. But maybe that’s just me. After a few sips the sweetness did seem to subside and you could taste the … Read the rest

Raw Revolution Organic Live Food Bar, Chocolate and Cashew

Posted by on Thursday, 26 May, 2011

I ran in the Door County Half Marathon a few weeks ago and the morning of the race I picked up my bag o’ goodies supplied by the race sponsors. Usually you just get an XXL t-shirt that is completely unwearable, unless I wear it as a dress, and my racing number and forms. But at the bottom of my bag was this Raw Revolution Bar. From the title, you can gather that it’s uncooked. What is it exactly? Well, it’s a combination of things: It’s organic, it’s raw, it’s vegan, it’s soy free, no refined sugars, it’s kosher … Read the rest

Crispy Beer Basil Pizza Crust

Posted by on Friday, 20 May, 2011

The recipe below is specifically for a bread machine, but you can certainly make it by hand if you don’t have a bread machine or don’t feel like getting it out. I searched high and low for the perfect pizza dough recipe and I came out with a lot of pizza’s that just weren’t right. After a lot of trials and many adjustments, this is my ideal pizza crust and the one I always use. It’s thin, but not paper thin and it’s crispy, but not hard and crispy like a wasa cracker. This recipe makes two 14″ pizzas. There … Read the rest

Blue Sky Organic Soda Orange Divine

Posted by on Wednesday, 2 February, 2011

Not enough can be said about Blue Sky. They make Natural soda, Organic Soda, Diet soda and more.  I’m not too into the diet ones, they have little flavor, but I do like their Natural and Organic ones.  This new one I tried is called Orange Divine.  When I was a little kid I used to LOVE grape soda and orange soda.  Don’t ask me why, I was a gross kid.  Well, it’s a good thing that Blue Sky has taken it upon themselves to make me my grape and orange soda but in a better way.  Better … Read the rest

Koepsell’s White Rice Popping Corn

Posted by on Thursday, 16 December, 2010

I’m not a fan of microwave popcorn.  I prefer to pop it myself using a healthier oil, sea salt and organic butter.  Not only is it better for you it’s also on the cheaper side, plus you can make as much or all little as you’d like.  Oh yeah, not to mention that it tastes SO MUCH BETTER.

It’s hard to find good quality white rice pop corn. Actually it’s hard to find white popcorn instead of the yellow kind.  The white kind yields less to the farmers but I think that the white tastes better.  It’s more fluffy, … Read the rest
