GIVEAWAY: $15 Little One Books Gift Certificate! -CLOSED-

Winner

Little One Books is a great company that helps you find quality books for children 0 - 5.  They have a team of professionals that have personally reviewed and selected each item in their online store.

Joan McCoy and Barney Cohen, grandparents of 5 children under the age of 6, started Little One Books after being overwhelmed by the number of products available.  They want to help others make informed choices among the vast amount of material you can find today.

When you go to Little One Books you can shop by the age of the child.  There you will find books, video, or music.  For each item you can see "Why we chose this book" for a great and personal review!  When millions of books are available it's nice to have a company that helps us to narrow down the selection and help us out.


I chose Disney's Classic Storybook for my 3 year old.  Here is why they chose this book, and an example of the quality reviews they have on each of the products they sell:

Veronica's Piquillo Peppers

I have a friend (from northern Spain where piquillo peppers originate) that makes the best stuffed piquillo peppers.  She's actually now living in the UK, so I was left to improvise.  I also wanted to make a recipe that didn't include flour nor dairy.  Here's the result.

1 jar of Piquillo Peppers (9.9 oz)
(in Utah, I can find them at Sunflower Market).

Stuffing for Piquillo Peppers:

1/2 diced sweet onion
4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 small cloves of garlic (2 large)
2 pieces of Tilapia cut up in pieces
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and Pepper
2 Tbsp marinara sauce

Start off by heating up the olive oil in a pan. Once hot, add the onion and cook until translucent.  Add garlic and saute for one minute (don't let it burn).  Add tilapia, juice of 1 lemon, salt and pepper and marinara sauce.

Break up the tilapia until all is cooked thoroughly and fish is flaky and in small pieces.


Sauce:
juice from the piquillo peppers jar
dash of white vinegar
1/2 a packet of "Sazon Goya co…

GIVEAWAY: Brilliant Screen Cleaning Wipes -CLOSED-

Winner

I received a 5 pack of Brilliant Screen Cleaning Wipes to review.  With all the screens we have in this house it was easy to use them up.  And with how often I clean screens (only when I'm unable to tell what show I'm watching) it's nice to have a wipe that helps to protect it from getting dirty too fast. :)

These worked great for me.  Cleaned just like I thought they would.  Each pack has a wet and dry screen cleaner and I loved that!  They are anti-static and "provide a durable barrier that protects 50 times more from scratching."  These are also great for glasses!

They are $3.99 online, and are sold at Walgreens and Ace Hardware.

I have a 5 pack box of Brilliant Screen Cleaning Wipes to give away!
