Mara's Pasta Review and Giveaway

This is Mara's Pasta. It is whole wheat artisan pasta. It is made with a unique combination of wheat to give it better taste and texture. It is higher in protein and fiber than other whole grain pastas. It also cooks faster than most other whole grain pastas. I was sent this awesome gift box of products to review.
I love pasta. I was so excited to do this review. I was really hoping Mara's would be different. I was tired of all the mushy, tasteless whole grain pastas I was trying. So, I decided to cook dinner with Mara's right away. To make it interesting I decided to cook the fettuccine pasta. This would be the pasta that would mush if any of it would.
I made chicken alfredo with spinach and broccoli. It was yummy!! Onto Mara's Pasta. The fettuccine, to my surprise, did NOT get mushy as you can see in the picture. It cooked quicker than I expected as well. The real test was the taste....it was good. Still whole wheat, but good. It actually had some taste and the texture was perfect. All in all, I give Mara's a Thumbs UP!!
Note: Boogerhead was off spending the night with her best friend. This review I had to do alone.

TruKid Review

Boogerhead is a great kid....except when it comes to brushing her hair. She screams!! She gets terrible rat's nests in the back of her hair all day long. The poor kid's hair looks a mess in the back!
We always have to use a detangler. I hate most store brand ones, as they are sticky and smelly. Then I came across TruKid. They sell hair and body products for kids. The great thing is their products are free of harmful chemicals. They also have a great way for kids to use their products by themselves. Pictures!! There is a little label pic that has a face with squiggly hair and says "Hair". They also are in bright colored bottles and have silly names. Boogerhead loved this! I love that TruKid promotes kids taking care of their bodies and their planet.
This stuff smells fresh and isn't sticky. It also easily removed the tangles from Boogerhead's hair. And it kept it tangle free all day!!! That was the most AWESOME thing!!!
She didn't scream. She didn't cry. She just said, "Ow that stuff works great. It's not hurting really."

 TruKid worked and it is now a staple in Boogerhead's hair arsenal. Thumbs Up!!!

Chobani Greek Yogurt Review

This is what I received UPS last week!!! Boogerhead was super excited to review Chobani.
First, let me educate you on greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is strained so the liquid whey is removed. With the whey gone it takes on a thicker,cheesier texture. It takes 4c. of milk to make 1c., whereas regular yogurt only takes 1c. of milk to make 1c. of yogurt. This does give greek yogurt more protein than it's opposite.

We have been eating them all week. I really like the texture of the greek yogurt. Boogerhead likes all the flavors. I've never been one for the soupy yogurts. I love that Chobani is thick and creamy. I also love that you can get some interesting flavors. They have pomegranate, mango, pineapple, raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, strawberry-banana,and even apple cinnamon. Boogerhead's favorite was raspberry.
Now, to the bad part. My husband had the strawberry-banana,which is his favorite flavor. Not so with Chobani. He liked the texture, but said it tasted nothing like strawberries or bananas. I loved all the flavors but one. The apple cinnamon. Not a particularly tasty combination in yogurt . With that said, all in all, Chobani is some delicious greek yogurt. It has a nice thick, creamy texture and amazing flavors.
And as you can see, Boogerhead gave it a thumbs up!
