The hit musical “Annie” is coming to theaters on December 19, 2014 (giveaway ends 12/27/14)

 

Annie Movie Poster

Whenever I think of the story of Annie I think of a little girl in a red dress with wild red hair singing “It’s a hard knock life for us...”

That is all about to change this Friday (December 19, 2014) when a new Annie film comes to theaters across the country. It’s the same beloved story but with a few new twists and turns.

Annie stars Jamie Foxx as Will Stacks (the “Daddy Warbucks) and Quvenzhané Wallis as the lovable and precocious Annie. The film also stars Cameron Diaz, Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale.

Quvenzhané Wallis is an up and coming young star who has been seen in such films as 12 Years a Slave and Beasts of the Southern Wild.

Annie is a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they’d be back for her someday, it’s been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan. But everything’s about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in.

Here is a clip from the film as well as the trailer for your enjoyment.

 

 

Cameron Diaz is an odd choice for the mean foster care lady, but it works.

The film looks really good and I can’t wait to see it. My kids are not really familiar with the story of Annie so it will be fun to introduce them to the popular story.

There is an interesting Family Study Guide available for you and your family if you wish to download it. There is also a great resources list from Scholastic for Educators and Librarians.

Look for Annie at a theater new you.

For more information you can visit the official movie website, www.Annie-Movie.com/Site.  There you can watch the trailer, learn about the cast and crew, see photos and more. You can also follow the movie on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (links found at the top of the movie website).

Unilever is transforming its current buttery spreads with real, simple ingredients (giveaway ends 12/27/14)

 

I can't believe it's not butter

When I am cooking and baking for my family I try and use products that are made fresh and are not filled with artificial colors, flavors, additives or preservatives. I know that is not always possible, but I do the best I can.

I am a label reader. If I pick up a product that is filled with ingredients I cannot pronounce I don’t want to feed it to my family.

I tend to steer towards products with real, simple and more natural ingredients.

Take butter for example. Back in the old days butter was made with cream and sometimes a pinch of salt. These days butter is made with ingredients I have no clue what they are. Why? Why not stick with simple ingredients?

Unilever U.S., makers of products such as I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®, Country Crock®, Brummel & Brown® and Imperial® are transforming their buttery spreads into new recipes that are made with real, simple and delicious ingredients such as plant based oils, purified water and a pinch of salt. There will be no artificial preservatives. This is being done as part of Unilever’s commitment to making delicious, balanced foods from real and simple ingredients for consumers.

“This is a groundbreaking innovation for Unilever’s U.S. Foods division, driven by our mission to deliver great-tasting and sustainable food to America,” said Mike Faherty, Vice President, Unilever Foods, North America. “The new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® is the start of a complete category transformation that will help us grow the buttery spreads business. It is also consistent with the types of innovation you can continue to expect from our Unilever foods brands.”

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® redesigned products have already launched. The transformation will continue across other Unilever buttery spreads brands, including Country Crock®, Brummel & Brown® and Imperial® in 2015.

Unilever I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Logo

The new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® products offer a delicious fresh butter taste with no artificial preservatives. It’s currently available in Original, Light and Olive Oil varieties, and is the first spread from Unilever in the U.S. to be made with non-GMO sourced ingredients.

The new simple recipes contains 0g trans fats per serving, no cholesterol and no partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. This applies to spreads, sprays and sticks.

“The new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® products provide a source of good fats – monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats – similar to those found in avocados, walnuts and almonds, and can be part of an overall healthy, balanced diet,” said television personality Joy Bauer, MS, RDN, who is partnering with Unilever buttery spreads as part of a multi-channel program to communicate the nutritional benefits of good fats.

“They’re also great in the kitchen. Whether spreading on whole-grain toast, topping corn on the cob, sauteing vegetables or baking fruity muffins, the new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® is extremely versatile,” Bauer continued.

I’ve had the opportunity to try the new recipe of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® with my family. Unilever was kind enough to send me a sample and some yummy goodies to enjoy it with – some yummy blueberry muffins and a huge loaf of whole wheat bread from Balthazar Bakery in NYC.

ICBINB 1

We could not wait to slice into that massive loaf of bread. We had it for dinner that night (and dinner the following night too).

My whole family enjoyed the  I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® spread. We’ve used the product in the past and I must say I did notice a difference in the taste of the product – in a good way. It had more of a real butter taste to it – but in a spreadable form.

I like using real butter but it’s impossible to spread it on breads without tearing it apart. That is why I prefer spreads.

My family not only enjoyed the new  I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® spread on the bread (my husband and I took the muffins to work with us the next day) but we also enjoyed it on bagels, baked potatoes, pancakes, toast and we melted some to drizzle on top of popcorn.

The spread is very tasty and best of all it’s only 60 calories per tablespoon. That is more than enough to use on breads and other foods.

The new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® is available in major retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.09.

For more information about the transformation, including recipes, cooking tips and nutrition, visit www.icantbelieveitsnotbutter.com. You can also find the brand on social media (the links are found on the home page).

ICBINB 2

How would you like to try the new and improved  I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® spread? Two (2) lucky readers will each win five (5) free product coupons to enjoy themselves or to share with others. 

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and will end on December 27, 2014 at 11:59 PM (EST). The winners will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries.

Idahoan Flavored Mashed Potatoes – Great side dishes and main meals (giveaway ends 12/22/14)

 

Potatoes 2

I grew up in a home where my mom made every meal from scratch. She would never even entertain the thought of anything “instant” or something you need to toss in a microwave to warm up. Of course, we’re going back a million years ago – back in the Stone Age (ha ha). I’m sure if my mom was still alive she would take advantage of the many wonderful convenience foods available to us to help make meal planning quicker and easier.

One thing my mom would do that I couldn’t imagine doing is making mashed potatoes from scratch. She would painstakingly peel the potatoes, boil them, and then mash them with a potato masher with bit of milk and butter. I LOVED my moms mashed potatoes. She would mash them so much there wouldn’t be any lumps in them. When she’d make them for my brother in law she’d make a lumpy batch for him. He loved the lumpy kind.

I miss my mom’s mashed potatoes. I’m sure I could re-create my beloved mashed potatoes, but I honestly don’t have the time (or the patience). There are days I’m on the go-go-go that I don’t even know what I am making for dinner, let alone make something from scratch.

My family and I have been enjoying Idahoan Flavored Mashed Potatoes for years. They are so easy to make (just boil water, add the potatoes, mix and enjoy!) and come in flavors my family loves. Best of all, they taste like real mashed potatoes.

Some instant mashed potatoes taste watery and very “light.” They don’t give you the thick and creamy mashed potatoes our moms and grandmas used to make. That is why we love Idahoan Flavored Mashed Potatoes. They are close to the home made taste I grew up with.

132

Idahoan Flavored Mashed Potatoes are available in several different flavor varieties.

  • Idahoan Buttery Homestyle
  • Idahoan Four Cheese
  • Idahoan Loaded Baked
  • Idahoan Baby Reds
  • Idahoan Roasted Garlic

We had the Roasted Garlic this evening with dinner.

I love that Idahoan Flavored Mashed Potatoes are now available in larger, family sized pouches. My husband and son have huge appetites and LOVE mashed potatoes so I usually have to make two packages. I don’t mind. Sometimes I even mix/match the flavors.

Here is a little more information about the Idahoan brand.

Idahoan is a grower-owned company in Eastern Idaho which began over 50 years ago. Idahoan uses 100% Idaho potatoes in all of its products. The rich, volcanic soil, warm days, cool nights and mountain water from the area offer the perfect conditions for growing high-quality potatoes.  Idahoan uses a proprietary one-pass process in dehydrating these potatoes which allows them to retain the authentic, homemade taste and texture without the hassle of washing, peeling, boiling and mashing. In fact, families can enjoy our mashed potatoes in as little as 4 minutes. Simply put, Idahoan is in the business of making lives easier.

Today, Idahoan offers a full range of products including flavored mashed, original mashed and casserole style dishes such as Scalloped and Au Gratin.  Flavored mashed options range from traditional tastes such as Buttery Homestyle and Loaded Baked to more adventuresome varieties such as Bacon Cheddar Chipotle and White Cheese.  Idahoan also offers its top varieties in convenient microwaveable cups which are ready in 90 seconds and perfect for an on-the-go lifestyle.

It’s nice to learn a little background for the brands that you use often. I think it makes you appreciate them even more.

I mostly use Idahoan Flavored Mashed Potatoes as side dishes to my main meals (mashed potatoes are a MUST with meatloaf). Did you know that Idahoan Flavored Mashed Potatoes also make great main meals too?

There are a lot of mouth-watering recipes found on the Idahoan website. You can find the Idahoan-inspired recipes on their website.

Here are just a few of the recipes you’ll find in the Idahoan recipe section.

Mashed Potato Topped Green Bean Casserole

Chevre Mashed Potatoes with Peas and Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Braised Short Ribs with Roasted Garlic Horseradish Mashed

Loaded Baked Bean Soup

Buffalo Chicken Layered Mashed

Idahoan Potato Crusted Rib Roast

I wanted to try one of the recipes. I had a few favorites but my teenage daughter asked if she could make something. I do love that she is learning to cook, which is a skill she’ll need when she’s on her own (she graduates in June!). However she tends NOT to follow directions. She likes to “wing it” and do things her own way – which is fine, and I admire that – but sometimes it’s important to follow the directions in order to ensure that you do things properly.

My daughter chose Idahoan Loaded Mashed Potato Cakes.

Ingredients

Recipe Card

The recipe called for Panko breadcrumbs, which I didn’t have. My daughter felt that regular breadcrumbs would work OK (they didn’t).

No one like Colby cheese but me, so my daughter wanted to use either cheddar, smoked cheddar or American cheese. My husband and son won out (they only like American cheese).

My family doesn’t like chives (except me) or sour cream.

It makes you wonder WHY she chose this recipe? I guess it’s because it looked easy enough to do for a novice cook like my daughter.

The recipe calls for you to mix just the mashed potatoes and chives in a bowl. Actually you need to mix ALL the ingredients in a bowl, except the sour cream and bacon. Those go on last after it’s cooked.

I had her add a little water because they seemed a bit dry and wouldn’t form into patties (they were crumbly).

Patties

The patties looked pretty good, although she made them look more like meatballs. Half way through I told her to flatted them a bit so they would cook better.

They cooked for a bit (and she even set off the smoke alarm – Ha Ha). Soon we had Idahoan Loaded Mashed Potato Cakes.

patties 2

We also topped them with some bacon pieces (although I would have loved to use sour cream – I think it would have been an amazing combination).

Bacon

They were good. Maybe a wee bit dry, but I think with practice (and perhaps following the recipe exactly) they would turn out a lot better.

I plan on trying one of the potato soup recipes I found (and bookmarked) from the Idahoan Flavored Mashed Potato website. I love potato soup. I’ve only made it from a can. I never gave instant mashed potatoes a thought. Know that I know you can use them for soup I plan on making it – a lot.

Jingle All The Way now available on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital HD (giveaway ends 12/18/14)

 

Jingle All The Way 2

Ho-Ho-Ho… ‘Tis the season for plenty of fun holiday movies and television shows. There are the holiday classics – It’s a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman to name a few. There are also movies that are destined to be holiday classics too (if they are not already) such as Elf, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and Jingle All the Way. In fact, Jingle All The Way has a second film, appropriately entitled Jingle All The Way 2.

Jingle All The Way 2 is NOT a sequel but rather an entirely different film, but with the same kind of plot about a father trying his best to get his child the #1 toy on their holiday wish list.

Fill your stocking with a new holiday classic that will have the whole family laughing when Jingle All The Way 2 on Blu-ray Combo, DVD and Digital HD from WWE Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Comedy superstar Larry the Cable Guy and WWE Superstar Santino Marella bring laughs and holiday spirit to this second installment of the successful film franchise.

Two desperate dads compete in a no-holds-barred battle to be the best father and make this the best Christmas ever! Fun-loving, laid-back dad Larry (Larry the Cable Guy; Cars, Tooth Fairy 2) is having a bear of a time finding the perfect Christmas gift for his eight-year-old daughter, Noel. The season’s hottest toy, The Harrison Bear, is all sold out, and Noel’s new stepfather wants to keep it that way — so he can be the one to make her holiday wish come true. When Larry learns all Noel wants for Christmas is the bear, he’ll stop at nothing to make his little girl happy and get her the toy of her dreams…Co-starring WWE Superstar Santino Marella, Jingle All The Way 2 is heartwarming and hilarious fun for the whole family!

Jingle All The Way 2 is directed by Alex Zamm (Dr. Dolittle: Million Dollar Mutts,The Tooth Fairy 2) and produced by Michael Luisi (Scooby-Doo! WrestleManiaMystery, Christmas Bounty, The Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age Smackdown) and Vicki Sotheran (The Sandlot 2, The Sandlot: Heading Home).

The holiday cheer continues in the Blu-ray Combo and DVD bonus features including deleted scenes, making-of featurettes, a mock Public Service Announcement from Larry and Santino advising how you can stay safe while shopping this holiday plus a special Harrison the Bear TV commercial and an exclusive interview with the hottest toy of the season.

My husband and I watched the film this past weekend. I’m not really a fan of Larry the Cable Guy but I gave the film a fair shot. It was actually pretty good and very funny.

This is NOT a remake of Jingle All The Way and although the story line is similar, it’s an entirely different story.

It thing most parents can relate to trying to find the one toy on their child’s holiday shopping list. It makes me think of when I was a little girl and everyone went CRAZY for Cabbage Patch Kids. I didn’t get one until the following year but my sister got one for Christmas, however she had to have our cousins in Wales (UK) ship one to her (they had found one and she paid them for it).

Larry (in the film) will stop at nothing to get his adorable daughter the teddy bear she wants for Christmas. And trust me, he finds himself in some wild and crazy situations too.

Here is a brief trailer from Fox Home Entertainment for your enjoyment.

 

Here are some fun activity sheets that you can download, save, print out and enjoy with your family. Simply click on each image for a larger view that you can save.

Movie Review: Susie’s Hope (giveaway ends 12/18/14)

 

Susie's Hope

I am a big time animal lover. Our five cats, dog and fish might be some good indication of that. All of our pets are adopted – except the fish (one we won at the fair – the other we purchased from the pet store so he had a friend). We are also frequently donate to our local animal shelter (food, supplies, money, blankets…). I even volunteered for a bit of time at the shelter taking photos of the animals available for adoption for location publications and PetFinder.org.

My dream is the own a farm or even a pet sanctuary where all animals are welcome. I would adopt so many more animals if we had the room. I strongly feel that every animal deserves a “forever home”.

I get so upset and angry when I read stories about animal abuse. Don’t people realize that animals are living, breathing creatures too that feel pain just like human beings do? Do people honestly think that dogs don’t feel pain when they are kicked, beaten, burned and tortured? What do they think goes through an animals mind when they are being dragged by a car or purposely drowned? They feel pain, fear and horror and sadness just like people do. They just don’t have the voice to speak up. People who care about animals need to be their voices.

Sadly there are not too many laws that protect the rights of animals. At most someone is usually fined or just slapped on the wrist. These people end up getting more pets and repeating it all over again.

I enjoy watching movies about animals and reading books about animals. I recently watched one based on a true story called Susie’s Hope.

Based on the true story that successfully passed Susie’s Law in North Carolina, which seeks stricter punishment for animal abusers, Susie’s Hope brings to life the inspirational relationship between pit bull attack survivor Donna Lawrence and Susie, a pit bull-mix puppy found beaten, burned and left for dead. Recognizing reflect and abuse were to blame for the tragic attack that nearly claimed her life 10 months earlier, Donna resumes the battered animal and accepts her as family. Together, they learn to heal, love and forgive as thyey lead a historic effort to seek justice and protection, not only for Susie, but all animals. Starring Emmanuelle Vaguer (40 Days and 40 Nights), Burgess Jenkins (Remember The Titans) and Andrea Powell (Ender’s Game, The Twighlight: Breaking Dawn Saga: Part 2), Susie’s Hope is an incredible story of love, loss and redemption.

As I mentioned before, this is based on a true story.

Susie was just a puppy when she licked the face of her owner’s newborn baby. The owner’s boyfriend (assuming he was the father of the infant) became enraged and beat up the puppy, dislocating the jaw and smashing out teeth. As if that was not enough he pour lighter fluid on the puppy and lit it on fire. Some how the puppy was able to run away and was later found near dead in a park by Donna Lawrence and her best friend Ramona.

This is a MULTIPLE box of tissues kind of movie. I was in tears several times throughout the film. As an animal lover it broke my heart to know that this movie was based on true events. From the tragic event that claimed the life of Donna’s unborn child to the very end it was a total tear-fest.

The scenes of Susie as a puppy when she was found near dead in the park covered in maggots (they used real maggots in the film!) was played by a lifelike robotic dog (thankfully). Later in the film Susie is played by a real puppy and then at the end the REAL Susie steps in to play herself.

Susie

I’m glad that the film had a happy ending, and Susie went on to become a trained therapy dog – even winning the American Humane Association Hero Dog award. Check out and share Susie’s Hero Dog Award Video here.

Susie and how owners even created a website called SusiesHope.com that talks about her story as well as brings to light the plight of abused and neglected animals. Susie’s Hope is also a law in the state of North Carolina as well as a non-profit charity raising awareness about animal abuse and neglect as well as raising funds to help care for abused and neglected animals.

I wanted to hug all of my pets after watching this movie.

Susie’s Hope is available on DVD on the Susie’s Hope website, Amazon and other retail locations.

You can also find Susie’s Hope on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. All the links are found on the bottom of their home page.

Here is the trailer for your enjoyment.

Enjoy the sweet goodness of Wonderful Halos (giveaway ends 12/20/14)

 

Our produce drawer in the fridge.

Our produce drawer in the fridge.

My favorite part about the spring and summer months is the abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms. We try and “stock up” whenever possible and always take advantage of the wonderful produce of the season.

One family favorite has always been oranges. Oranges make a delicious and healthy snack. The only downside is that they are not always easy to peel. That is my least favorite part of the fruit – that darn peel!

I remember having to peel them all the time for my kids. Even now that they are teenagers I often find myself helping them to unpeel them because some are more difficult to peel than others and it’s very frustrating. Many oranges have to have their seeds removed as well, which is something else I did for my kids when they were younger.

For these reasons we have switched to Wonderful Halos. Wonderful Halos are from the same people who bring you Wonderful Pistachios and POM Wonderful.

For many years I have skipped past them in the produce aisle. They are small in size and I figured they really didn’t have much to them. That is until one day about a year ago my daughter was shopping with me and saw them and asked if we could get them. I wasn’t overly pleased with the oranges in the produce section that day so I told her to pick up a package.

Wonderful Halos

To my surprise the Wonderful Halos were super easy to peel, seedless and very juicy. They are totally delicious!

I didn’t know that Wonderful Halos are California grown mandarin oranges. I just thought they were tiny oranges. I buy mandarin oranges in cans. Silly me! Now I can enjoy them fresh, they way they were meant to be enjoyed, and not in can with Wonderful Halos.

Wonderful Halos are in season November through April. They make great any time of day snacks and they are small enough to toss inside a lunch box. They are also portable so you can enjoy them on the go.

I find that I grab for Halos more often then a regular orange because they are super easy to peel and enjoy. They are not as much of a “chore” to peel and pop the seeds out of like most other oranges. I want to enjoy my sweet juicy snack – not have to work for it. LOL!

At only 50 calories and containing 45% of your daily recommended amount of Vitamin C, Wonderful Halos are an ideal, healthy snack for both young and old alike.

For more information about Wonderful Halos visit HalosFun.com. You can also find the brand on all the social media sites (all the links are found on the top right of their home page).

There is even a FREE Halos Fun app that you can download and enjoy. It’s kid friendly and packed with fun and adventure. The app is available to download on both Google Play and the App Store.

Not all contents of the prize package seen in the photo - winner will receive FREE product coupons not the actual product.
