No-Sort-Website-290x180

I was always surprised to see how guys did laundry. I rented a room from this guy and he used the wash machine as his hamper and put all his clothes in one load. Then when Rex and I got a place one day I came home to everything mixed together in a load.  I had to explain to him how you have to separate all the colors or they would start to get funky looking.  IMG_0092Well not any more!  Purex has a new detergent for colors.

It is called Purex® No Sort™ detergent features a breakthrough Anti-Color-Transfer Technology™ which traps loose dyes in the wash, and prevents them from settling onto other fabrics—leaving your clothes bright and clean without color bleeding accidents.

* Purex® No Sort™ detergent is packed with innovation, but it can’t perform miracles, so please follow these words of advice: wash strongly colored fabrics or new pieces of clothing, especially jeans, separately at least 5 times before doing a mixed color load with Purex® No Sort™ detergent.

Not only is it good for the bachelor it is great for me and any other busy person.  Now I no longer have to spend time sorting my clothes into 4 separate piles; whites, light colors, dark colors and towels.  I am sure that will be a hard habit to break. At least I know when Rex does the laundry it will come out clean, fresh and not with bleeding colors.  The Purex® No Sort™ detergent still cleans as good as any of the other Purex products and has a nice scent. It is still very affordable and goes a long way.

 

How does The Purex® No Sort™ detergent work compared to regular detergents?

You can find The Purex® No Sort™ detergent nationwide just look for it in the laundry aisle. I am so glad to have this new product and am happy that  Purex® continues  to bring new innovated products to the market.  Make sure you connect with Purex®  on Facebook so you can stay up today with whats new.

Hair dyes are important fashion accessories that enhance a person’s natural beauty. They can change someone’s appearance because hair frames the face. People know when they find the right color for their skin tone because they immediately fall in love with it.

A long-running debate exists between professional dyes and box colors. Some people choose professional coloring out of fear that they could damage their own hair. Others choose box color because it is less expensive. Some combine the two by coloring from a box between salon visits.

Developer is an essential part of the hair coloring process. Less developer equals healthier hair, and professional stylists tend to use low volumes. Box color is generally a one-size-fits-all process where everyone uses the same amount of developer. This can cause blotchy hair colors and ugly orange streaks.

Box color also damages hair by destroying the cuticles. The high ammonia levels in box dyes cause hair to frizz or shrivel up. Unfortunately, the problem gets worse with each coloring process. Professional hair coloring causes less damage to hair.

The Beecher Group is an example of a company that supplies professional hair color and other beauty supplies to salons and spas. The high-quality color systems exceed most clients’ expectations of professional coloring. To learn more about these Iowa beauty resources, shop iowabeauty.com.

I am trying to eat better and add more fruit into my diet.  Brothers-All-Natural offers some great fruit crisp options to help you get the fruit you need in your diet.  Just recently they added Mango Fruit Crisps to the products they offer.  Rex loves mango’s but they are hard to cut up and  messy so when I received the Mango Fruit Crisps he was all excited! IMG_0054

The Mango Crisps come in 1/2 cup bags with 40 calories.  These are real, sliced mangos with the water gently removed and then freeze-dried. They are 100% natural.  No added sugar, preservatives, and no artificial coloring. They are allergy friendly, gluten free, soy free, peanut/tree nut free, vegan and OU Kosher certified. So these are perfect for anyone.  What a great way to add more fruit into someones diet.

I like that I could put a healthy convenient dried fruit snack in Rex’s lunch and it was something he liked.  It is always hard to find good snacks for lunches on the go.  The Mango Fruit Crisps are great tasting and mess free.  Unlike other dried fruits, Brothers-All-Natural Mango Fruit Crisps contain the same nutrition as a fresh mango. There are two servings in each pouch.

Brothers-All-Natural offer a number of great tasting Natural Freeze Dried Fruit Crisps including the following:

  • Fuji Apple
  • Apple Cinnamon
  • Asian Pear (one of my favorites)
  • Banana
  • Mandarin Orange
  • Mixed Berry
  • Mixed fruit
  • Peach
  • Pineapple
  • Strawberry
  • Strawberry Banana
  • and of course the Manago

You can find Brothers-All-Natural Dried Fruit Crisps nationwide at many stores including Walmart and A & P stores.  You can also get the biggest selection HERE online.   You can also keep in contact on Facebook.

I have an extra box of Mango Fruit Crisps that I would love to share with one of my readers.  You must be 18+ US(48). Leave a comment on what Fruit Crisp you think you would like best.

At our house we have tacos, fajitas, enchiladas or quesadillas at least once a week and I try to switch them up.  I also am always looking for a way to eat healthier.  I recently tried these La Tortilla Factory – Low Carb Tortilla.  They are an excellent source of fiber, these tortillas are low calorie, low in fat, and contain no saturated fats or hydrogenated oils. Now the company that brought you the low carb tortillas brings you a great tasting traditional flour version of their original best seller. At just 6g net carbs, each tortilla is packed with 8g of protein, 48% of your recommended daily intake of fiber, and has only 80 calories. Made with whole wheat and not a drop of hydrogenated oils, these tortillas are convenient and filling.

The La Tortilla Factory tortilla is really good.  One of my favorite things to do at night for a snack is heat up a tortilla with a bit of cheese in the middle. Using the low carb tortillas from La Tortilla Factory makes this cheese quesadillas alright for my diet. Another favorite way to use these is with a Chicken, Ranch and Bacon Quesadilla for dinner.  Below is my recipe.

Chicken, Bacon and Ranch Quesadilla
Print
Ingredients
  • 2 La Tortilla Factory low carb tortillas
  • 3 oz cooked and chopped up chicken (great way to use left overs)
  • 2 pieces crumbled bacon
  • Sauteed onion and mushrooms (I use about ¼ cup combined)
  • Shredded cheese to taste
  • 2 tablespoons Ranch dressing divided
Instructions
  1. The first thing I do is saute the onion and mushroom together until tender (5 min)
  2. Add the chicken and crumbled bacon and heat till warm
  3. Lay one tortilla in a frying pan
  4. Layer on the chicken mixture, cheese on the tortilla
  5. Use 1 tablespoon ranch dressing and drizzle it over the top
  6. Cover with 2nd tortilla
  7. Heat until the bottom is lightly browned and then flip the tortilla, be careful your fillings do not fall out
  8. When the top is browned remove from pan - cut into pieces and enjoy dipping in reserve ranch dressing

La Tortilla Factory Tortilla’s can be used for many different meals including breakfast burrito’s, wrap sandwiches, tacos and many more things.  What is your favorite way to use a La Tortilla Facotry Tortilla? You can find your favorite variety at Safeway, Fred Meyer and many more places nationwide.  Stay connected with La Tortilla Factory on Facebook and find some great ideas of how to use the tortillas.

loveOne of my favorite things to do is bake and I love using new products when I bake.  Last Friday I received a Mrs. Fields Fill N Flip™ Locking Layer Baking Pan  from Love Cooking Co. in the mail.  I had to use it on Saturday.  We had a potluck at church so it was perfect timing.  I love the pan it bakes a layer cake in two pieces and when you take the cakes out of the pan there is room for filling. Fill--Flip-upside-down-sizedThe filling is fully enclosed in one half and using the other half of the cake, locking the filling in the center.

IMG_0069

 

 

 

 

I made a yellow cake with a coconut cream filling.  It was so easy.  I used the directions on the cake mix and baked as normal.  Then I mixed a box of coconut cream pudding and two cups milk.  I added a small container of Cool Whip to that along with a cup of toasted coconut. IMG_0070

 

 

I then filled the the bottom half with the pudding mixture and then sealed the cake with the top layer. It sealed perfect!  No pudding leaking out. I am sure the cake would have been great just like that but I covered it with Cool Whip.  Everyone loved it at church.  It was one of the first things that was people ate for dessert.  The cake did not last long.

I have all kinds of ideas to use this pan.  What about a white or chocolate cake filled with cherry pie filling? Or how about a German Chocolate cake filled with whip cream and then frost it with that yummy frosting you use on German Chocolate cakes with coconut and pecans.  The ideas are just endless. I know this will be one of my favorite pans in the kitchen.  I will use it all the time.

If you would like to purchase your own Mrs. Fields Fill N Flip™ Locking Layer Baking Pan you can do so HERE. You can also find a lot of other innovated pans.  Keep in connect with Love Cooking Company on Facebook and be the first to see what is new.

Love Cooking Co. has offered one of my readers the same Mrs. Fields Fill N Flip™ Locking Layer Baking Pan I received. You must be 18+ US (48), DC. Leave a comment on what you think would be a good cake combination. Extra entry for following Love Cooking Co. on Facebook. Extra enter for each way you follow Kaisy Daisy’s Corner.

Spray Pal

Spray Pal was invented by a cloth diapering mom and dad when they started their oldest on solids and couldn’t get their diaper sprayer to work without making a big mess all over the rest of their bathroom. So they created the prototype, applied for a patent, and started making cloth diapering easier for everyone! Less than a year later, their son was born 3.5 months prematurely. Now all proceeds from their sales go toward his medical expenses and will hopefully allow these parents to stop teaching and work from home to be able to care for both of their kids and keep up with his appointments and therapies. You can follow their story on Facebook, Twitter (@spray_pal) and Instagram (@spraypal).

Zippyz by Little Trendyz

Zippyz are footed pajamas with a patented design that makes diaper changes easier while keeping babies covered and warm during the process. Zippyz are made of a blend of organic and cotton which is extremely soft and eco-friendly! Zippyz® (shopzippyz.com) was created by mom, Lisa Youngelson, who like most new parents, had been up night after night changing her newborn son’s diaper. She was so exhausted she could barely function, let alone match up the tiny snaps on her baby’s pajamas.

Frustrated by endless missnapping and re-snapping, Lisa found zippered pajamas, and thought her problems had been solved. That night when she unzipped her son’s pajamas, he started to cry from the shock of the freezing cold air. After endless research, Lisa realized there was nothing on the market that could be the solution to her problem. So, that night while feeding her son she thought of “Zippyz”.

As a mother of two, Julie found she was continuously retrieving dropped pacifiers, because even though they spit them out, they still want them immediately! She called it “the pacifier game,” and, at times, it was difficult to play. One day, she thought, ‘I wish somebody would invent a …’ A what? What could make it so babies can keep up with their pacifiers? Several designs later, the PullyPalz were born… The first ever pacifier toy that – with the help of baby’s interaction – keeps pacis coming back!

Her goal is to offer unique products that make life and parenthood just a little easier, and ultimately more enjoyable. Compatible products (teethers and toys) will be coming to market soon. Julie also offers product development and consultation services for other aspiring entrepreneurs.

Jennifer Jacobellis started Baby J when her son was just a few months old. She ventured out to mommy and me classes and play groups, armed with just a blanket for him to lie on. After class, she would fold up her blanket and stick it in the diaper bag, knowing that when she got home it would have to go straight into the laundry basket. There had to be a better way!

One day she decided it was time to solve this problem. She ran to the fabric store and began tinkering. She designed this play mat with her germ-a-phobe tendencies in mind, as well as being soft, baby friendly, and chic. The Baby J padded play mat was born!

Owner and Hales Corners, WI, mommy of two Kelley Legler hand-makes all baby Jack blankets and puts a lot of love and time into these creations. This business started out as a hobby after Kelley saw how much her son loved to play with ribbons but did not enjoy seeing his fingers intertwined in the loops. After careful consideration, her mother-in-law, Nancy, and Kelley started sewing ribbons shut into tabs, leaving only one ribbon open as a “link loop” to attach a pacifier clip or toy (toy link included!). These custom ribbon-tab blankets are perfect for baby showers & gifts!

Hi and welcome to my blog! I started this blog when I started seeing the potential to help other moms and dads with saving money on the things they needed and wanted. I began seeing posts on facebook for product reviews and for links to free items and thought I would love to do that! If I could just help one family in this economy I would be happy. So that is how Five Lil Bass In Tow started. Why that name, you might ask? Well my sister actually came up with it. We have 5 children ranging from 5-16 and our last name is Bass. (now in the process of adopting a little girl we have had for a year and half) People would stare at us when we “towed” all the kids to restraunts and stores. Anyway…..my goal is just to bring you the savings, and the product reviews so you can shop wisely, and maybe you can make some friends along the way!

Fortune Cookie Tour

Tour Schedule

 

Fortune CookieFortune Cookie
Sadie Hoffmiller has always liked things to be just so. A place for everything and everything in its place. Order over chaos. And of all things Sadie should be able to control, her own wedding is at the top of the list.

With the big day just three weeks away, Sadie is busily adding the final touches to her wedding plans but the arrival of a mysterious letter from San Francisco changes everything. The only person Sadie knows in San Francisco is her older sister, Wendy, whom she hasn’t seen since their mother’s funeral nearly fifteen years ago.

Sadie has faced off against murderers and criminals in recent years, yet the possibility of reconnecting with her sister is both overwhelming and frightening. Sadie soon discovers, however, that the letter is just the beginning when Wendy’s world turns out to be a place of unanswered questions, twisted truths, and more than one person with a motive for murder.
The more Sadie digs into her sister’s past, the more she places her own future at risk.

Culinary Mysteries

Culinary Mystery Series

JosiAuthor Josi S. Kilpack

Josi S. Kilpack hated to read until her mother handed her a copy of The Witch of Blackbird Pond when she was 13. From that day forward, she read everything she could get her hands on and accredits her writing “education” to the many novels she has “studied” since then. She began writing her first novel in 1998 and never stopped. Her novel, Sheep’s Clothing won the Whitney Award 2007 for Mystery/Suspense. Lemon Tart, the first book in the Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mystery series was a finalist in 2009. Josi currently lives in Willard Utah with her husband, children and super-cute cat.

My Review:

I love Josi S. Kilpack.  I am always excited to hear when a new book in this series comes out.  In this book Fortune Cookie Sadie is finishing plans for her wedding.  She has only a couple weeks to get everything done.  She receives a strange letter in the mail from San Fransisco.  Sadie thinks it involves her sister Wendy who she hasn’t seen or heard from in 15 years.  Once Sadie starts investigating things start to get interesting. You need to read Fortune Cookie to find out what happens.  I can’t wait for the next book in the series!
