The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar

In my house, when it comes to our family movie nights, we not only enjoy seeking out those new must see movies we come across, but we also enjoy finding and sharing those shows we enjoy as well. And like many little ones who are fans of Disney Junior, my little guy enjoys watching the show, The Lion Guard. So when we were sent the new DVD, The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar to review, my little guy not only wanted to watch it right away, but also share it during our family movie night.

With this DVD, we find that the pride lands are experiencing a drought, where water is hard to find, leaving many in a bad mood. Kion and his Lion Guard team find themselves feeling the effects as well, and through the tensions that rise, Janja's hyenas join with Ushari as they discover a secret that can bring back the spirit of Scar. We found this DVD to be a great addition to our collection of Disney Junior favorites, and you can too when you head out today to bring home your copy of, The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar home!

Product received, thank you to Disney Home Movies as well as the PR for supplying me with a product for this review, all opinions are my own.

Lunches with True Story Foods

When it comes to keeping up with those goals we set just 2 short weeks ago, I find that I like to seek out the products that can help. This includes the products that I can not only enjoy as I work at losing the weight I set out to lose, but also the products that my entire family can enjoy as well. So when we were introduced to the selection of products from the True Story Foods line up, I was excited to check them out and also share the selection with my family as we take on the new year ahead.
With the selection of both deli meats and hot dogs, we get those lunch options that offer a little something for everyone. The selection not only gives me those sandwich meats I seek along with the chicken I can put on top of my salads, but options that gives my family can enjoy with meats that are natural, free of synthetic nitrates and nitrates. I also like that the animals are fed an all-vegetarian diet, never fed antibiotics or growth enhancers, and live without undue stress or agitation. Which is a huge plus when seeking out those foods that we can all enjoy in my house, especially when looking to reach those goals for the new year.

Then when it comes to where I can purchase the line of products from the True Story Foods line up, I like that I can find what I am looking for at my local Costco! Making the choice to add the selection of products from True Story Foods to your lunch menu, a choice that both you and your family are sure to enjoy!

Kitchen Gadgets from Whiskware

When it comes to the kitchen and all of the cooking we do in there, I have found that having a variety of tools to get different dishes put together can make everything a lot easier. The thing is, many of us find that we might improvise or attempt to create certain dishes, using the gadgets we might have on hand, to not only make a mess during our attempts at creating that dish, but also find that the attempts might become failed attempts or ones that do not look like what we had in mind due to the fact that we did not have the proper tools on hand. So when we were sent a selection of the kitchen gadgets from Whiskware to review, I was curious to see what all the tools could be used for and also begin using them myself as I attempted those adorably perfect pancakes and more!

See like many, I have seen those pancakes that are in the photos we come across on Instagram or Pinterest, and I have attempted to recreate those perfect circles, designs and such to only have a result that is far from my goal. So when I saw the Pancake Art Kit, I realized that I had found the tools I needed in order to recreate those perfect pancakes and even create fun shapes as well. I also found that with the kit, that my kids could easily help and even create those fun designs with me. This is because in the kit we get that batter mixer that gives us that perfectly mixed pancake batter that is essential for having when making pancakes along with the pancake art bottle, which allows us to create those fun designs and even the pancake shapers that the kids love to make fun shapes with. Giving us those tools that allow us to recreate the designs and more when it comes to the pancake art that my kids love seeing on their plates!

Along with the Pancake Art Kit that my entire family has enjoyed having in the home, I found the Salad Dressing Shaker to be very useful as well. The shaker is designed to make the creating of some of those dressing creations we see online or in our recipe books, a very simple process. Where it can be mixed one handed and the measurements can be seen right on the bottle, making the process a very simple one. I also like that even after we have completed making a dressing for our salads or other foods without the issue of messes or spills, that we can use the mixer to pour with, keep the dressing stored in the container, then when it is all gone, clean out easily to be used again and again!

Then when it comes to the other tools we were sent, I found the Egg Mixer to be another must have that has made prep work in the kitchen a lot easier for everyone in my home. Giving us a tool that has a built in egg cracker, a removable egg separator that allows the removal of the yoke a very simple one, and a whisk inside that makes the mixing of the eggs very easy and less messy. The mixer also has measurements on the side of the bottle, can mix up to 8 eggs, and is simple to clean up since it is dishwasher safe! And when it comes to taking some of those foods we make in the kitchen or the other snack items we might take when we head out for the day, send in the kids lunches or take to the office with us, I found the snacking containers to be a great product to have on hand. There are assorted sizes, a removable handle, and with the twist and lock system we can secure each container easily to the other with just a turn! Which in all makes the choice to add the selection of kitchen gadgets from Whiskware to your kitchen, a choice that will help to make the cooking and even snacking a little easier for everyone!
