Edible Arrangements and A Mother's Day Dream!!!

Mother's Day Dream

I woke up on Mother's Day to a knock on the door.
I magically awoke looking like a Princess and could answer the door with pride.
I gasped at the sight before me.
Three of the most beautiful yummy delicious Edible Arrangements fruity gift baskets I have ever seen.


 My eyes bulged with the scene of beauty that was before me.

What ever was I going to eat first? I reach in to grab a chocolate covered strawberry to taste the deliciousness and I am jolted back to reality. It couldn't be , was it just a dream?
 

Don't let your mom wake up Mothers Day morning and not live the dream of an Edible Arrangement , or 2 or 3 for her to start her day.

Potato Candy

I always was so excited around Christmas time just knowing my Nana would be making her mint melts and delicious Potato Candy. Such a favorite of mine and I am so grateful to share this treat with my toddler.
No need for special ooccasions in my house for treats , and was feeling Nostalgic and remembered one of my favorite treats.

Potato Candy

5 simple ingredients
* about 1 med sized potato ( I improvised and used 2 small ones)
*3 1/2 Cups Icing Sugar
*1 1/2 Cups Shredded Coconut ( its candy I went for sweet stuff)
*1 TSP Vanilla
*1 Cup Chocolate Chips ( melted when time) or can use Baking Squares (2)




Peel potato and boil till soft. Drain and mash . Add the icing sugar (it should be thick so if it isnt add more icing sugar) . Add the coconut and vanilla . Drop by teaspoons onto a cookie sheet (will likely need more than one ). Transfer to freezer to chill right through. After chilled , melt chocolate and cover each candy. May or may not need more chocolate , just depends On how much you want to use . Transfer back to freezer to set . Once set,  transfer to covered container and store in feezer. Can last up to 3 week in freezer, if they make it that long.
Yields about 45 ( more or less depending)

As with everything treat wise in the Wanna-Be Superhero Mom Kitchen these are candy after all and very sweet .







You can always add nuts or other things to the mix . The base is simple and hey there happens to be a vegetable in there so it dosent really count on the candy scale ;).

3 ingredients Nutella MOCK Chocolate Bars

I am just going to cut to the chase here: These are SWEET , and I mean very sweet. But come on would you want it any other way.

So easy to make these , 3 simple Ingredients, 15 min in the oven, (20 minutes to cool) , then heaven.

What you will need:
1 Cup of Nutella
1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup of Flour ( I used whole wheat , needed some healthy aspect )


Serious just put it all in a bowl and mix it together. It is not runny and should not come out that way. It should all gather up into a nice soft ball.
Grease an 8×8 pan or smaller . Drop the ball in and pat it down .

Mine looked like this.

Pop into a preheated 350° oven for 15 minutes . Here is the hard part , okay not hard but willpower hard. You have to wait at least 20 minutes for it to cool and set before you cut your chocolate sqaure bars or chunks .
That is it, easy peasy Mock chocolate bars , and Nutella to boot .

Yes you do notice a bite in one, I couldnt help myself .

Cotton Spa Cleanser Set( Kimberly Poole Desgins) AND GIVEAWAY

 Love these Spa Facial Cloths I have to review , and that had to be said first before anything else.

There is a surge in environmental hacks for everyday products. Not only are they easy on the pocket book; but are perfect in helping on the environmental impact of our disposable , throw away society.

One thing I hadn't yet seen was reusable cloths for your daily facial routine. All that has changed thanks to the Reusable Spa Cleanser Set from Kimberly Poole Designs.
https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/kimberlypooledesigns?page=1 The Spa Set will be available for purchase come Friday April 18 2015 . Make sure to check out her awesome shop to grab these and any of the other amazing things she has in her shop. All hand crafted I might add in a Smoke Free home .

The Spa Set includes:
* Nubby Face Scrubber
*Flat Disc Cleanser
*FaceCloth
I received a complete Spa Set in exchange or an open , honest review.

I washed all 3 prior to first use and hung to dry.

Nubby Face Scrubber : great for gentle exfoliation and for helping clean off tougher makeup



I absolutely love , love this scrubber. While I was trying this for the first time, I was seriously in heaven with this little scrubber. There is of course the wonderful cleaning and exfoliating benefits . But what I didnt expect was a mini facial massage , and that in itself was the best part about this scrubber. The scrubber gave me a complete clean and you could see the dirt and grim leave your face from the day. The scrubber wasn't harsh on my skin at all. I am still blown away though that it gives your face a mini massage while you are using it. What an amazing way to end the day.

Flat Disc Cleanser: amazing replacement for your cotton pads, perfect size for your toner routine and small quick cleaning


For myself I am actually not a toner in my routine type of gal. But this awesome replace your cotton pads Flat Disc Cleaner wasnt going to go to waste. You see I love nail polish and if I could replace the cotton pads in my nail routine , score big time.  The best thing I can say is this litle disc WORKS. I used this to take my nail polish off . So pleased with the outcome . The outside of the disc helped with any stubborn polish around the cuticles. So the fact is there that this is even multipurpose as well. I have no doubt that if it worked well with my nail polish that it will work well with facial toner.


Face Cloth: environmentally friendly, helps to exfoliate while you clean, gentle and gets softer with every wash .



I knew I was going to love the Face Cloth before I even used it. I had always loved the wash cloths for dishes and never once thought about that concept in a Face Cloth. What a perfect way to end my massge from the Scrubber, with  the overall clean from this wonderful Face Cloth.  I loved how it worked perfectly in helping me to get rid of my mascara clumps .
Make sure you wash out your cloths throughly after each use , even if just with water to rinse out most of the make up, toner, or nail polish remover.

So wohoo for everyone who would love to try these out. I have a giveaway for 1 Nubby Face Scrubber , and 1Flat Disc Cleanser .

New Motts Fruitsations Flavor Review

Winning to be one of the first 100 people to try 2 of Mott's Fruitsations flavors was awesome . Not only do I personally loves these as a snack , but my toddler does to. They are perfect for car rides, snacks, to keep in your purse or bag, and for even cooking . A nutritional and delicious "clean eating" snack . They work perfect as a tie over snack when your little ones get hungry and even just for a sweet treat.

I thought we were just getting a box of each of the 2 new flavors ( Unsweetened Strawberry Kiwi Fruit Rockets  and Unsweetened Mixed Berry Carrot Fruitsations and Veggies ), but we were given a bunch of extra little treats as well as the flavors . It was a great surprise and treat and my toddler was so excited .


We got a ton of cute kid tats of apple men . I had to put some on each of my toddlers hands right away because he had to have stickers as he calls them .


There was a really cool picture  frame magnet, that went straight onto the fridge.


There were also 2 really cute stuffy key chains of apple dudes. A cute socceer player and a skateboarder. Toys with some awesome snacks my toddler was in heaven. He was so excited to see the cool box of goodies.



And of course the 2 boxes of the new flavors

Unsweetened Mixed Berry Carrot (Fruitsations and Veggies)
Unsweetened Strawberry Kiwi  Fruit Rockets

Motts asked for us to to review the product and to answer 6 questions. A little thing to do for the gift of getting such a cool prize and chance to test some new flavors.
So here we go:

1) HOW DID YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN ENJOY THE NEW FRUIT ROCKETS STRAWBERRY-KIWI FRUIT SNACK?

He enjoyed this flavor, in fact he reached for this flavor first. I was surprised as blueberry is his fave fruit and I thought he would have tried the veggie one first .

2 DID YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN ENJOY THE NEW FRUITSATIONS AND VEGGIES UNSWEETENED MIXED BERRY CARROT FRUIT SNACK?

My toddler actually loved this flavor .  I wanted to try to see the flavor and how well the "veggies" were hide for those picky eaters. I have to say this was delicious and mostly fruity taste. Well done on this Veggie /Fruit Flavor mix.

3) DO THEY HAVE A FAVORITE FLAVOUR BETWEEN THE TWO?
WHAT ABOUT AN OVERALL FAVORITE FLAVOUR FROM THE COMPLETE LINE UP IN STORE?
The clear favorite is the Unsweetened Mixed Berry Carrot
His overall favorite was the blueberry ones which I will switch out for the new Mixed Berry Carrot ones .

4) WILL YOU PURCHASE THESE NEW MOTT'S FRUITSATIONS FRUIT ROCKETS FLAVOURS IN THE NEAR FUTURE?

Yes we will purchase more of these in the near future.

5) WHEN WOULD YOU LIKELY SERVE YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN THESE FRUIT SNACKS?

I could serve these to my toddler at anytime . Honestly perfect for snacks , or for in between treats.

6)WHERE WILL YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN LIKELY TO CONSUME THESE NEW FRUIT SNACKS?

At his snack table, just in the house , while we are on road trips , car rides, at the beach etc.


So much appreciated Motts Fruitsations Canada . Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity .



My toddler just loves his skater apple , he fell asleep with him.
