Novelle Naturals Walnut Butter

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
I am a huge peanut butter fan, but I've never tried walnut butter! Novelle Naturals Walnut Butter comes in two flavors - Classic Walnut Butter and Cacao Walnut Butter. I received a jar of the Classic Walnut Butter and it's incredibly delicious, but it's also nutritious, energy-packed, and heart-healthy. I've been dipping apple slices in it, spreading it on crackers and toast, and even dropping a couple spoonfuls into smoothies!
Novelle Naturals Walnut Butter is the perfect choice for health-conscious eaters looking for a healthier, more nutritious nut butter alternative. The signature Novelle Naturals combination of rich, healthy superfoods makes their walnut butter incredibly healthy and delicious. Novelle Naturals walnut spreads are GMO-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and low glycemic, making them an excellent choice for vegan diets, paleo diets, and even diabetics!

Easy Chocolate Cola Cake #Recipe and Glaze #Recipe

#affiliate links enclosed
Did you know there's an even easier way to use a cake mix? Replacing the eggs, oil and butter with a can of cola makes the cake moister and more delicious! You can use any kind of cake mix and any kind of cola to create an endless combination of cake tastes. Today I used a chocolate cake mix and Coca Cola in a bundt pan. I also made a vanilla glaze to go over the top of it. Below is the recipe for both!

Cola Cake - Chocolate Bundt Recipe

1 chocolate cake mix (18oz package)
1.5 cups Coca Cola
(you can also add an egg white to make the cake fluffier in appearance)

In a large bowl, mix cake mix and cola. Spray bundt pan with cooking oil and pour batter into bundt pan. Preheat oven to 350. Bake cake for 40 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes, then turn bundt cake over onto large plate and let cool completely.

Vanilla Glaze Recipe

1.5 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, pour powdered sugar. Add the water and vanilla extract a bit at a time while stirring slowly, until sugar becomes a glaze. Pour glaze over top of bundt cake so that it runs over the sides and down onto the plate. Slice this delicious cake and serve!

Giveaway! Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
'Tis the season for coughs and sore throats! I have mad seasonal allergy reactions to cedar and mold, so January in Texas is a bear for me. This month, I've been trying out Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops, a product that's new to me. Pine Bros is a premium throat drop brand that dates all the way back to 1870. Widely known as America’s original throat drop, their rich history, all natural ingredients, and unique “softishness” make Pine Bros a favorite among many.
Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops come in Licorice flavor, Natural Honey flavor, Lemon Citrus flavor, and Wild Cherry flavor (my personal favorite). They can be purchased in bags or in pucks, which is a little round container that fits nicely into my handbag. Pine Brothers is available now at both Walgreens and Walmart.
I really like Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops. They help to ease my throat pain from coughing and they taste good too. The recipe has been unchanged for 140 years, with the soothing natural qualities of plant glycerin and the healing properties of gum acacia in each throat drop. Try them!
Learn more about Pine Brothers at www.pinebrothers.com. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, then enter below to win a variety package of 12 bags/pucks of Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops!

Giveaway! January Paper Pumpkin Craft Kit

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Did you make a New Year's resolution to be more crafty? More careful with your money? More deliberate with your creations? The Paper Pumpkin craft kit for January covers all those resolutions! This month's kit, All Shook Up, contains everything you'll need to create nine beautiful occasion cards.
Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription craft kit, created by Stampin' Up!, that teaches you step-by-step (via an instruction book and online video tutorial) how to create many different kinds of paper crafts. Each month's kit is different, and includes the supplies required to create that month's project.
The All Shook Up kit is so much fun! It includes supplies for making nine cards that feature a shaker box on the front, filled with sequins and confetti. This Paper Pumpkin kit includes six stamps for Hello, Thank You, and Happy Birthday events, plus an ink pad.
It also includes 3D foam strips, frames, plastic sheeting, and sequins for creating the shaker boxes. There are also multi-colored sheets of pre-cut stars in gray, blue, green, and pink, plus a tiny toothpick to press the stars out to make confetti for the shaker boxes.
There are also three sheets of pre-cut sayings that are sticker-backed so it's easy to adhere them to the front of the shaker box on the card. The kit also includes nine pre-scored greeting cards and nine envelopes.
I've found that the Paper Pumpkin craft kit instructions are always clear and easy to follow. I've also found that all the supplies are high-quality and in perfect condition when they arrive in the mail. It's such a joy to learn how to do something new and I love to bless others with the things I make from my kit. 
In about 30 minutes, I created all nine of my occasion cards, with minimal mess and maximum fun. They were easy to make, but look absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to share them! I highly recommend Paper Pumpkin craft kits and encourage you to sign up for their monthly subscription boxes. You'll save money because you only receive what you need to create that project and you'll be pleased you made something you're proud to give.

The Stair Barrier - Stylish Safety for Children and Pets

#sponsored
Twenty-five years of teaching preschoolers in my two-story home made it very clear that finding a baby gate that worked into my decor was a must. Our solution was a swinging wood gate, but now that I've seen The Stair Barrier, I think it's a much better idea. The Stair Barrier is a beautiful solution to keeping children and pets off the stairs. The Stair Barrier is designed for the bottom of the stairs, from banister to banister and comes in either Regular Size (36"-42" wide) and Wide Size (42"-52" wide). There are no extension kits to buy, no mounting kits to buy, and you won't have to drill any holes in your walls, banisters, or stairs.
The Stair Barrier is made of Class 1 upholstery grade fabrics, internal plastic struts, heavy polypropylene webbing, and standard dual side release buckles. It's available in a variety of fabrics to match the decor of your home and can be rolled to the side when not in use. You can even personalize it if you want. It's so easy to use and installation is simple. The Stair Barrier even comes with a handy travel bag, so you can take it to Grandma's home when you visit or take it to the babysitter's house for extra peace of mind.
I think The Stair Barrier is a fantastic way to keep children and pets off the staircase! The choice of using fabric over plastic or wood is a much softer way to work something functional and necessary into existing home decor. I really love the chevron design. I was especially excited to see that these are handcrafted in the United States. You should check out The Stair Barrier!
Visit www.thestairbarrier.com for more information. You can also purchase The Stair Barrier on Amazon. Be sure to check out their Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest accounts too!
