product review: Harvest Snaps

The wife and I are snack-a-holics. We eat more small things throughout the day than actual prepared meals so when I got the offer to sample six flavors of The Harvest Snaps. It was kind of a no-brainer. I used to purchase a similar variation of these at Earthfare, but they were only offered in the plain salted kind. Harvest Snaps formerly known as Snapea Crisps offer more variety, all which are pretty tasty. The Snap Pea crisps flavors come in lightly salted, caesar, wasabi ranch, and black pepper.

Biscuits are a southern dinner table staple that I don’t believe will go away anytime soon and why would you want them to? The crispy, flaky skin encasing that fluffy pillowy center can do all but solve world hunger. But then, again, it might be worth a try so bake away friends. Lets show the world what they’ve been missing. I recollect biscuits being a regular fixture at our dinner table as kids growing up and they all differed depending upon whose house you visited. At my grandmothers you would be greeted by the lard and butter combo biscuits that just barely met …

Giveaway: thinkTHIN Crunch Bars

Hey friends! If you’ve been following me on twitter. Then you might know that some of our eating habits have changed in the past few months. My wife, Jenna, as a post bone-marrow transplant recipient typically has crazy things happening with her body. And well, the Dr.s think she may be developing a gluten and dairy allergy (bummer). This revelation has led us to find new and creative ways for her to enjoy the things she loves while keeping me sane as I try not to eat the things she can’t have in front of her…The things we do for love. So when thinkTHIN approached me with a giveaway for their bars. It was a no-brainer.  There’s something for everyone and the you can find them in a dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and kosher format!
