I need your help!

Nature's Sleep is having a contest for bloggers to win an opportunity to win this bed for a review.


Nice, isn't it? Let me tell you about my bed. I don't have a frame so the box spring and mattress lie on the floor. The box spring is broken so the mattress tilts to the right. I have arthritis in my spine and hips and I have fibromyalgia. This means that I am always in pain and rarely get a decent night's sleep. I really want to win the review of this bed.

How can you help? Like Nature's Sleep on Facebook. Then go to this status update http://www.facebook.com/NaturesSleep/posts/10151227100925710 and comment that you think The Kids are Grown, Now What is the BEST blog for the review.

I do have a review and giveaway of a Nature's Sleep product (not the bed) coming up in a few weeks.

Thanks for your help!

Review: Antidote Health Through Pleasure

I think everyone knows by now that I love chocolate. All chocolate in all forms. I was very excited when I learned of the opportunity to review these truly unique chocolates.

Antidote Chocolate bars are sustainably made from "bean to bar" with a unique 50/50 blend of RAW & roasted organic cacao for optimum taste and nutrition. The Chocolate itself is made from the exquisite "Arriba Nacional" Cacao from farms in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

I was privileged to try two different varieties of Antidote chocolate. The first one "HEBE" (they all have the names of Goddesses!) is flavored with Rose Salt and Lemon. The salt plays off the chocolate and it is absolutely delicious. The lemon is an undertone. Truly beautiful and unique gift for someone special. The second one "ALETHEIA" is Ginger and Gooseberry. The chocolate is warm and velvety and the gooseberry and ginger add just a hint of tartness.

Delicious and healthy chocolate that I am rationing because I don't want to run out too soon! I will definitely be buying more and SOON!

Chili Dogs in a Blanket! #Gluten Free

We love to do pigs in a blanket so when we got our latest shipment of Chebe All Purpose Bread Mix, Ryan came up with the idea to do Chili Dogs in a blanket! They were really easy. Prepare dough according to package directions and roll out. Cut dough into quarters.

Place hot dogs on each quarter.
Spoon chili next to hot dogs.
We did two chili, cheese and onion dogs and 2 cheese and onion dogs. Fold dough around hot dogs and seal.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

You've found it! You found the Bain Marie Jar Utensil Holder! We are giving this as a prize in May's Cooking Explosion! Now Quick! Leave a comment and head back to Kim!

Review: The Prophet (The New Brotherhood) By K.J. Dahlen

"Torches encircling the group sullied the crisp clean night air.
The sheer volume of people standing around waiting was bigger
tonight than usual, but it was still kept at a manageable number. Up
high on Granddad’s Bluff most of the land was farmland and woods.
The meeting was in a clearing in the woods. The clearing was above the city of La Crosse, Wisconsin."

After a three year search for a serial killer known as The Prophet, FBI agents Sean Sebastian and Rheta Morgan; both who have a personal reason to stop him, finally get a break and The Prophet is within their reach. Confrontation leads them to discover a secret network called the New Brotherhood and the more they find out about the New Brotherhood, the more determined they are to stop it.


When The Prophet takes Rheta and Sean's sister hostage, the race is on to free them and bring down the Brotherhood.

Don't plan on breathing while you are reading this book! This is fast paced. It will grip you and you won't want to put it down until you are finished!
