It happened again! My Degustabox arrived and I am so excited about all of this month's goodies! Everything looks amazing!
Whenever my Degustabox arrives, I always call for my daughters to help me 'unbox' all of the goodies. We have so much fun looking at all of the contents together and deciding who gets what. We have a fun mother-daughter bonding time as we taste test some of the goodies. We also discuss what we might make for dinner, using some of the Dugustabox ingredients. It is a blast!
Here are the products that were included in the September 2016 Degustabox:
These delicious little butter cookies are the perfect combination of sweet and salty, buttery goodness. My entire family loves these!
The English Provender Co. believes in keeping it simple – their products have clean, all-natural, premium ingredients packaged in an attractive upscale glass jar. The English Provender Co. has been making small batch, traditional English recipes since 1979. Non-GMO, Vegetarian, Gluten Free.
Luxury Lemon Curd: A decadent, creamy jam-spread with a bright sweet flavor. A Perfect Breakfast spread on waffles, warm toast, muffins. Ideal Pie filling. Delicious on ice-cream. (This lemon curd is my favorite! It is heavenly! I would use this as the filling of the lemon bars I make.)
Caramelized Red Onion: A delicious savory, rich, jam-style condiment. Delicious in Burgers, on spuds, hot dogs & with a deli-cheese plate. Degusta Box favorite - Caramelized Red Onion on Stilton & Bruchetta. (I haven't tried this one yet.)
Sweet Tomato & Chili : A sweet, rich, ketchup with a kick. Perfect in grilled sandwiches, burgers, with chicken, fish or cheese. A yummy, jam-style condiment. (I haven't tried this one yet, ether, but I will definitely try it out on my burger the next time we have a bbq.
This gluten-free, satisfying snack tastes great and gives you all the healthy benefits you expect from the good foods you put in your body.
Each of Toosum's delicious 100-calorie snack bars are made with nutrient-dense (and certified gluten-free!) rolled oats, and other delicious ingredients straight from nature, all with benefits that go way beyond their good taste.
I love Toosum bars. They are the perfect low-calorie, healthful snack for me, and for school lunches! Thankfully, my son, Braxton likes them, too! (This is wonderful, because he does not like most anything that has any type of nutritional value.)
Zollipops and Zolli Drops, The Clean Teeth Pops and Drops are a sweet cause-based product that helps reduce tooth decay. Zollipops naturally raise the pH in your mouth after a meal or sugary snack, leaving your teeth feeling smooth and clean as they help teeth naturally remineralize faster and help to prevent development of future cavities.
Zollipops are deliciously fruity. I like the way my mouth feels so clean when I am sucking on one. I would be kind of worried giving these to my kids, however because they are so hard that they could be a choking hazard.
Ripened chunky tomatoes slowly stewed with zucchini, carrots, garlic and onion finished with a blend of herbs de provence. This family favorite is a comforting sauce that can be used mildly or spiced up with chili pepper flakes.
I found a recipe on Hak's website that showed me how to make a delicious looking Pan Roasted Chicken Parmesan using this sauce. It loks so good, and looks easy. I haven't had the chance to try it out yet, but my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
I must say that unless you have a taste for this type of bitter drink, you might want to stay away from it. I thought it tasted nasty. I felt like it was some kind of a joke. Who would think that this stuff is refreshing? I thought it tasted like stomach acid. On a positive note, the bottle is pretty!
BustaNUT! takes your old school peanut and injects it with knock-your-socks-off flavor. These ain't your Daddy's peanuts. No cartoon figures here. Top quality peanuts with a selection of unique flavors to satisfy anyone's cravings.
My samples were Maple Bacon and Bourbon. I liked the Maple Bacon, but not the Bourbon flavor. And isn't BustaNUT a dirty word? So I may just refrain from taking them to church and sharing them with the Sunday School class that I teach.
Post Honey Bunches of Oats
Honey Bunches of Oats is my family's favorite cereal! I was happy to see that it came in this month's Degustabox. I love it!
When I first opened this sauce and tasted it, I thought it kind of tasted like a really good enchilada sauce. This evening, I decided to add a little bit of it to my chicken and rice dish, which was otherwise bland. It ended up being perfect! My entire family loved that little 'kick.' It is not too hot at all. It is made with African Bird's Eye Chilli and a blend of ingredients – sun-ripened lemons, garlic, onion and spice. Very impressive!
Sam Mills Gluten Free Corn Quinoa Gluten Free Corn Quinoa Fusilli is based on 100% natural ingredients and is free from the following allergens, Wheat, Soy, Egg, Dairy, Tree Nuts, Nuts, Fish and Shell Fish. It is also made from NON GMO ingredients and Kosher. I have not had the time to use this pasta yet, but I may try it in some sort of chicken casserole.
Who doesn't love Entenmann's delightful treats? Entenmann's® Little Bites® Muffins are available in a variety of flavors, including Chocolate Chip, Blueberry, Fudge Brownie, Party Cake, Snickerdoodle & Banana. These muffins contain 0g Trans Fat, no High Fructose Corn Syrup. They are conveniently packaged with 4 muffins per pouch. Perfectly pre-portioned and portable Little Bites® snacks are all readied for you to PACK A POUCH anytime & anywhere, so enjoy!
These little muffins are the perfect on the go snack for anytime of the day.
Light, crunchy and oh-so-satisfying, these triangular-shaped popped corn snacks will leave your taste buds wanting more, all with an airy, perfectly imperfect texture. So light, crunchy and delicious. I LOVE the kettle corn flavor. PopCorners are a guilt-free satisfying snack.

Believe it or not, despite growing love for our pets in America, pet obesity has reached an all-time high. In fact, the sixth annual National Pet Obesity Awareness Day Survey conducted by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP) found 52.5% of dogs to be overweight or obese by their veterinarian.
Proper weight is important to the health of your dog. It's no surprise that, just like their human counterparts, dogs at healthy weight are more likely to have less medical concerns, be generally happier and maybe even live longer. A long, happy life is what we all want for our four-footed family members. For these reasons, we're sharing with you our 5 best tips for winning the battle of the best friend bulge.
1. Recognize that there may be a problem
Is your pet actually overweight? Studies show that most families are unaware that a problem even exists. Assess your dog’s weight via this simple method:
- Have your dog stand-up
- From the side, look from his chest to his stomach to his back legs.
- Is his stomach as large as his chest? If you are not sure, grab a measuring tape and wrap his chest and then his waist.
- If the answer is yes, his stomach is as big as his chest, your dog could probably lose some weight.
You can also review Bil-Jac's Pet Obesity chart to assess the situation. Select the breed that best fits your best friend, and be in-the-know. Your veterinarian can also help you determine if now is a good time to help your dog shed some pounds.
2. Take your responsibility as a pet parent seriously.
As pet parents, we may spend more time worrying about pleasing our pets than being concerned about their health. Our pets live with us and follow our life style, eating habits and exercise patterns. We both love family time. We both love good food. But everything is best in moderation -- for us and our four-legged family members.
There is one big difference between our dogs and ourselves: we know if and when we need to better manage our weight. Your dog doesn’t know it’s time to adjust his eating habits. He might be thinking it’s time to eat all he can now, since he’s not sure when his next meal will be. Help your dog get to a healthy weight using these tips.
3. Measure and feed the right food.
While it is often taken for granted, it is important to feed your dog the appropriate amount of dry food daily. Check the feeding guidelines on the food you’re feeding him. The feeding guidelines are just that – a guideline. If your dog is more of a couch potato than the average dog, or if he is running 5 miles every day with you, you should adjust his food down or up to reflect his activity level. Be sure to use an actual dry measuring cup every time you feed him so as not to over-feed him. Weigh your dog once a week and keep track on paper to be sure his weight is headed in the right direction.
If your dog needs to lose some weight, you may want to consider choosing a reduced fat food like Bil-Jac Reduced Fat Formula, which has 30% less fat than Bil-Jac Adult Select. To determine the amount to feed your dog, find his desired weight on the feeding chart and feed that amount to start. Adjust as needed.
You can feed your dog once a day, or divide his feeding schedule into two times a day. Be sure if you feed twice a day to divide the amount he should be eating in half!
Are you sharing people food with him? Skip the people food – it adds fat, sugar and calories to his diet. Moreover, some people food can be bad for your dog, so be smart and cut this from your dog's diet. Try using a dog training treat, like Bil-Jac Little Jacs, that are smaller and only a few calories for each treat.
4. Weight Management and the Multi-Dog Household
When you have more than one four-footed best friend in the house, feeding can be a little more interesting. You may have one dog who likes to eat more of the food that’s served. Or you may have three dogs that like to see who can eat the most food the fastest!
In either case, if one or more of your dogs are overweight as a result, here are some ideas for managing the feast or famine attitude.
- Feed the dogs one at a time. Put the dogs in separate rooms to eat undisturbed. Alternatively, put all the dogs that are not eating in a separate room or have someone take them out to play. In this way feed each dog appropriately.
- Do not leave food out for grazing. Have your dog(s) eat for a certain amount of time, say 15 minutes, and what they do not eat will be picked up.
- Feed each dog the appropriate diet. If one dog is overweight, you may want to get him a reduced fat food for his feeding time.
5. The obvious: get out and move.
Just like us, if we haven't been so active in recent months, a sudden, rigorous exercise plan can actually hurt more than help. Talk with your veterinarian and use good judgment when beginning a dog exercise regimen – start with 15 minutes of fetching, for a week or two. Then, mix in a short walk, maybe 1/4 mile or so. Next, increase the length of time you walk or pick up the pace a little bit.
Some variety helps to keep our dogs’ motivation levels high! Walk, hike, jog, swim, play ball, run alongside a bike. The options are endless ... but the bonus is an even closer relationship with your furry family member!
My dog, Banner is an 11 year old black lab, and Banner recently was overweight. Not too bad, but enough to slow him down. You see, Banner loves pizza. He is an outdoor dog, but whenever he knows that we are having pizza, he will come to the sliding glass door on the deck and whine until he gets a piece. Before we know it, Banner has probably gobbled down the equivalent to an entire half of a pizza (because everyone keeps giving him their leftovers.)
Where's my pizza? Sorry Pal, no more pizza for you!
I soon started to realize that my dog was packing on the weight. I had a talk with my family to get them on board with not feeding Banner any more pizza, unless it was just a piece of pepperoni or two, just not anything more than that. I decided to get Banner started on a low fat dog food, but it was hard to find anything that Banner liked.
After a bit of trial and error, I discovered that Banner loves Bil-Jac Reduced Fat Formula dog food. In fact, he devours it with Gusto! He seems to enjoy this formula as much as he enjoyed his pizza. Wow!
Some dogs have a tendency to gain weight, which is not healthy. With 30% less fat than Bil-Jac Adult Select, Bil-Jac Reduced Fat Dog Food can help manage your dog’s weight while maintaining a beautiful coat and muscle tone. Plus, dogs love the real chicken taste of Bil-Jac Reduced Fat Formula, which is rare among reduced fat dog foods.
About the brand: Bil-Jac, offers a full line of nutritionalsuper premium dog foods and treats, and is committed to feeding dogs at every stage of life, which makes Bil-Jac the one complete dog food that is for all dogs, throughout their entire life. Your dog’s food and health is not only our business – it’s our passion. More real chicken meat is put into every bag. In fact, 12 lbs. of real chicken is used to make a 15 lb. bag of Bil-Jac Super Premium Dog Food. Bil-Jac Treats offer a treat alternative in a smaller size convenient for dog training or rewarding smaller dogs. Furthermore, Bil-Jac provides resources for puppies in training, health tips, puppy food and answers to dog related questions for owners.

I absolutely love Scalisi Skincare. All of the products that I have reviewed from this brand have been the highest of quality and the best performing solutions for anti-aging that I have ever tried. Now, Scalisi has created another miracle product that I am obsessed with! It is a perfectly formulated facial serum.
This serum is an absolute game changer. It feels like silk and absorbs quickly into your skin. Use it alone (it's great for acneic skin) or use it before your moisturizer to boost the results. It will become your 'will not leave home without it' product. It certainly is mine!
Scalisi skincare boasts a powerful combination of peptides and a multi-functional anti-aging vitamin complex to achieve their superior results. Think of a wrinkle as similar to a cut or burn. Scalisi's science is based on wound healing technology not retinol. Years of meticulous research about the body's healing mechanism produces the technology behind the line. Reduces visible wrinkles by up to 45% in 8 weeks.
I have been using Scalisi's new serum for two weeks now. I always use it in the morning right after cleansing, and then again at night after cleansing and before applying my night cream. I have seen such a difference in the moisture content of my skin, and a complete reduction of fine lines and even deep wrinkles!
This amazing serum will not be available to purchase until November 1st, 2016, but you can pre-order it by clicking here!
Scalisi is hosting an AMAZING giveaway and you need to enter! https://gleam.io/Oubqj/namethegamechanger
The giveaway will run till the end of the month when one winner will be announced who will receive a year's supply of Scalisi Skincare products that include 6 collection sets, worth a total of $1200.

Ever wish you could eliminate those wrinkles, but the thought of a needle makes you cringe? Frownies gets rid of those expression lines and creases by working on your muscle memory. Their facial patches gently re-educate the underlying muscles to assume a wrinkle free appearance. It's true!
Eliminate Expression Lines and Pesky Creases ThisFall with Frownies Natural Facial Patches
Bring in this Fall with a fresh attitude and a fresh face. Frownies Anti-Aging Patches work overnight to create healthy, younger-looking skin. Made with 100% natural and skin-friendly ingredients, these patches have been proven to successfully reduce the appearance of fine lines around your forehead, mouth, and eyes. Both comfortable and easy to use, you will barely notice they are on your face as you sleep.
Great for holiday traveling and early morning flights, Frownies Anti-Aging Facial Patches keep your face smooth, hydrated, and relaxed, looking more awake. Simply apply the adhesive strips directly over the area with wrinkles to soften the appearance of fine lines and lift the creases out of the skin.
For four generations, Frownies has been run by a family of women committed to ageless beauty since 1889. Understanding that injections and surgery aren’t the answer, for everyone; Frownies are much more natural and effective treatments that retrain facial muscles to prevent wrinkles and lines on the face. Frownies skin care products are highly nourishing, luxurious wrinkle treatments of potent, all-natural anti-aging antioxidants that assist Frownies Facial Patches to effectively address the physical cause of deep lines and wrinkles.
Wear Frownies as needed — sometimes just a few times a week — and watch the lines go away after a couple of weeks! Even after one three-hour application, you’ll notice a difference in the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines.
All of Frownies wrinkle-reducing products contain zero artificial fragrances, synthetic chemicals, toxic preservatives or other unsafe ingredients.
For over a century, Frownies wrinkle-reducing products have been a Hollywood favorite. Classic beauties like Olivia de Havilland and trendy young stars like Rashida Jones have referred to Frownies as their beauty obsession. Other celebrity beauty fans include Raquel Welch, Missy Pyle of Heroes, Mad About You, and Boston Legal and Rene Russo of The Thomas Crowne Affair and Lethal Weapon III.
Frownies are quickly becoming my latest Beauty obsession as well. I received a sample of Frownies Facial Patches for Wrinkles on the Forehead & Between Eyes to review.
These amazing patches are very easy to use. I apply mine at night after cleansing my face. First, I apply my Frownies Rose Water Spray, which was created to enhance the effectiveness of Frownies Facial Patches (FBE) & (CEM).
Rose Water Hydrating Spray is used to add a treatment to the skin and activate the back of the night time Facial Patches. Rose Water Spray keeps the Under Eye Patches moist and active for storage and repeat use. I love how hydrating this spray is.
Next, I simple pull the skin between my eyebrows until it is taught. Then, I stick the patch right over my expression lines. I can't even feel them when I am sleeping, so that is great.
After waking up in the morning, I remove the Frownies patches, and my skin is completely line and wrinkle free! I am completely amazed at how well they work.
Here is a photo of me after using Frownies patches every night for five days. No more lines between these brows!

I get so excited when I discover beauty companies that offer products that make my life as a busy mom easier! Momoup is one of those companies! Momoup is a company that has created two of my favorite new beauty discoveries.
I am completely head over heels with these new Makeup Blotting Oil Papers and their Makeup Removal Wipes.
My skin gets pretty oily during the day, and I do not enjoy resembling an oil slick, no I don't. I have found that Momoup's Makeup Blotting Oil Papers are the perfect solution for dabbing away at my oil without disturbing my makeup. And look! They come in an adorable little panda dispenser! So cute and perfect for carrying around in my purse.
I find myself using these throughout the day to freshen up my makeup. I usually use mattifying powder to control shine, but these tissues are so much more convenient. I simply tear one off, blot, and toss.
I hate to admit it, but sometimes I just do not have the energy to properly remove my makeup at the end of the day. I at least try to remove my eye makeup so that it doesn't smear all over my pillow, leaving me looking like a freak by morning.
Thankfully, Momoup's handy little Cotton Finger-cot Cleaning Facial Makeup Remover Pads have been such a life-saver! They not only thoroughly remove all traces of my facial and eye makeup, they also leave my skin in better condition than ever. I love how each foil packet contains two makeup removal wipes that fit right on your finger. One to remove your eye makeup and the other to remove your lipstick or facial makeup. Very convenient! I keep a few of these in my purse and also in my overnight bag. These wipes are perfect for travel!
