#BehindTheBlogger -- Dear Mama

#BehindTheBlogger -- Dear Mama

Dear Mommy,

I miss you.

This is the 15th Mother's day I'm 'celebrating' without you.

And I miss you every day.

There are days all I wish for is that I could talk to you. You always made me feel SO much better about whatever I was going through. You always did everything you could to guide me to do the best I could. The mantra of "You can do anything you set your mind to." is how I've come so far in life.

It's why I'm still here today.

Deep down, I know you're still guiding me, especially now while I'm contemplating life changes. I really don't believe in 'higher powers' or 'higher beings,' but I know you are subconsciously telling me what to do... and I know I should listen, because you've never steered me wrong before.

I hope I'm making you and Daddy proud in Heaven... or wherever you are. I hope I'm living up to the expectations you and Daddy had for me. I hope when we meet again, you can look at me and beam with joy and pride, because I exceeded every hope you had for me.

I love and miss you so much. Happy Mother's Day in Heaven.

Love,
Your Baby Doll,
Becky


My Two Moms -- (R) Mommy & me, 1989 and (L) Mama Melissa & me, 2012

Dear Mama Melissa,

Thank you.

I know I don't say it, or even show it, as much as I should... But thank you for taking me as your daughter.

You didn't HAVE to. I was 22 when Mommy died... a legal adult by all accounts.

But when Mommy asked you to watch out for me because she knew she was dying, you stepped up without hesitation or asking questions. You said yes right away.

And when your mom asked you to move back to New York, you could have left me to fend for myself in Montrose... and after what I had almost pulled on you in September 2001, I honestly wouldn't have blamed you one bit if you did.

But you didn't. You told your parents that I was moving up as well; I was your responsibility now. I don't think they really liked it, but you didn't care. They could either like it or lump it. As far as you were concerned, I was your daughter.

We've fought a lot over the past 15 years, but I am extremely thankful that I've had you in my life.

I know I really don't say it, and DEFINITELY don't show it, as much as I should... But I do love you, and I would be so lost without you.

Love,
Becky

Love With Food April 2017 Gluten Free Box

Love with Food
April 2017 box

What is Love With Food?
Love With Food helps you discover new organic or all-natural snacks delivered to your door every month. Our subscription membership starts as low as $10/month. Every month, Love With Food members will receive a curated box of unique, hard-to-find tasty snacks which varies based on seasonal themes.

For every box sold, we donate a meal to several food banks such as the Feeding America Network and Share Our Strength - No Kid Hungry. Join us to help end child hunger one meal at a time!

Say goodbye to boring grocery selections and start discovering your Love With Food experience!
April’s theme is ‘Be The Change.’ We all have things in our lives (and beyond) that we'd like to change. And big change starts small (like planting a seed), and it starts as just an idea. This month, we want every one of our super snackers to stop thinking about making a change, and DO it! We chose this month's snacks with that in mind. These all-natural goodies are changing the way we snack, and they'll have your back through any changes that come along, big or small. So, what are you waiting for?

*It would be safe to assume these snacks are gluten-free only unless otherwise noted.




^^what I received^^

Going in order of the unboxing...

NATURE’S SOOTHIE IN COMFORT (GERMAN CHAMOMILE AND LEMON)
All I really tasted was the lemon in this lollipop... really didn't taste the Chamomile, which I do like.
I'm not sure what it was supposed to soothe or comfort, but my acid reflux stayed at bay for a while after sucking on this.
TASTE: 8/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

SENSIBLE FOODS 100% ALL NATURAL CRUNCH DRIED APPLES
FROM THE BAG: Satisfy your snack cravings with 100% real fruits -- and Nothing Else! Only the highest quality fresh apples are handpicked at the peak of ripeness and then Crunch Dried to ensure a delightful snacking experience. Our unique drying process retains the nutritional value, while locking in the full flavor and natural sweetness. Find the perfect balance between sweet and tart with this delicious blend of apples.
Light and crunchy bites of delicious apples are packed in this baf for a perfectly amazing, on-the-go snack anytime, anywhere.

Oh, companies like this REALLY grind my gears… huge bag, tiny amount of product. You can see in the picture above how big the bag of apples is.


^^upon opening^^

And this is what I got.
Again, these really had NO taste to them. I didn't taste any apple flavor until I was nearly done chewing. These were alright, but I'll stick to my rubbery dried apples.
TASTE: 5/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Vegan, Non-GMO,

180 SNACKS ALMOND POPS WITH BLUEBERRIES
FROM THE PACKAGE: What is 180?
Improve the way you live… change the way you snack…
Adjust your SNACKitude
Treat your taste buds to this delicious snack packed with wholesome popped rice, crunchy baked almonds and sweet dried blueberries.
Take a turn for the better… Do a 180.
You’ll never go back!

These were AWESOME. I’m usually NOT one for blueberries, but these were really really good. Almonds are my favorite nut, so that was a bonus.
These were a bit crunchy for my teeth, but I didn’t care… they were that good.
TASTE: 10/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Kosher, Wheat Free, Cholesterol Free, Preservative Free, Dairy Free

GINNY BAKES MINI CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Tasted just like shortbread cookies with chocolate chips baked in. I didn’t really taste a difference in these and gluten-based chocolate chip cookies However, these seemed a bit harder/crunchier.
Use the code '20GBLOVE' on Amazon and their website for a 20% discount on any 4-count pack (Code expires 05.31.2017)
TASTE: 9/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Organic, Kosher, Non-GMO, Dairy Free

PRINCE OF PEACE GINGER CANDY
FROM THE PACKAGE: Prince of Peace Ginger Candy are great for the whole family. The sweet ginger taste is warming to the senses. Ginger is also known for bringing comfort to the stomach.

These were interesting. The packaging is MAINLY in an Asian language, some dialect of Chinese, which I don’t understand. The little blip above is pretty much the ONLY English on the package.
Going into these, I thought they would be hard candies, but they were more chewy than hard. Only thing I really didn’t like about them was the ginger burned my mouth.
TASTE: 7/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

KASHI CHEWY NUT BUTTER BARS in SALTED CHOCOLATE CHUNK
OMG… This was SO good! Tasted JUST like a Quaker chewy granola bar. Same texture, same taste. If I was blindfolded, I would NOT be able to tell the two bars apart. This was hands down my favorite of this month’s box. I’m actually considering buying these on my own, it was that good!
TASTE: 10/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Vegan

DANG COCONUT CHIPS in SALTED CACAO
FROM THE PACKAGE: Chocolate and coconut = best friends for life. We added a pinch of sea salt to make them even friendlier and ended up with this dang-worthy trio.
Dang is my Mother's name. One day she gave me a recipe with toasted coconut chips that changed my life. The flavor was so good. I started a company to share out coconut chips with the world and named it after her.
Enjoy our coconut chips as a snack or sprinkle them on salads, ice cream and yogurt as a fun topping.
From my family to yours,
Vincent K., Founder

I love coconut. One of my favorite candy bars is Almond Joy bars. Mama Melissa is allergic to coconut, so I got this snack all to myself.
I absolutely LOVED these chips, which I think taste better than the original Plain variety I reviewed in the February 2015 Taste Guru box. All these are were 'shavings' of the coconut meat that were dried and toasted. They had the same crunch of a potato chip.
Only downfall to these was I had just had some trauma to my gums and the broken pieces from chewing kept jabbing me in the sore area. But there was no avoiding this, unless I didn't eat them.
TASTE: ?/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free

SAVI RICE CRISP in CHOCOLATE
I actually expected this to be hard and crumbly, like most rice bars are. But this had the texture of a Rice Krispie Treat with chocolate on the bottom and drizzled on top.
The rice bar itself was really good, but the chocolate had a very strange taste to it. Turns out the company used unsweetened chocolate, which put me off a bit on the whole bar. Even though the chocolate was unsweetened, I’d probably eat this again though.

EVERLY DRINK MIX in POMEGRANATE BERRY
I haven't actually made this yet. I need to find a 2 qt container, and all we seem to have around here is either 1 liter bottles or gallon milk jugs.
When this is made, I'll edit this.

HEAVENLY ORGANICS DOUBLE DARK CHOCOLATE HONEY PATTIE
FROM THE WRAPPER: Chocolate Honey Patties have a dark chocolate shell made from 100% cocoa that is filled with 100% organic raw white honey blended with natural flavor. These decadent, bite-sized treats not only taste amazing, but dark chocolate and raw honey both offer minerals and immunity-boosting antioxidants.

In a word, DISGUSTING. I was expecting a ‘honey’ flavor to this. I took one bite and PROMPTLY spit it right back out.
I don’t know WHAT I tasted, but it was DEFINITELY not amazing.
TASTE: 0/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, No Added Sugar, Organic, Non-GMO

HALFPOPS CURIOUSLY CRUNCHY POPCORN in ANGRY KETTLE CORN
FROM THE PACKAGE: Curious yet?
So curious you're reading the fine print! Either you're really bored, or we're really interesting (we'll go with bored). Well, since we have your attention, we might as well say something meaningful... LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST(or half-fullest...)!
Not Enough? Okay then, we loved the half-popped pieces at the bottom of the bowl, so we figured how to make 'em (cool story bro). You should eat Halfpops because they're awesome, crunchy, addictive, fun at parties, always up for a gun & willing to stay out past curfew. That's a little more reminiscent of what brands put here, right? Oh yeah, share with friends too!
Listen, this is not a dating website (although, we'd swipe right for you). If anything else, you should try 'em because you've already invested your time to read all of this. At least, if you try the product & love it, you'll know it was time well spent. Otherwise, you totally wasted two minuted of your life that you'll never get back, and if that's the case, we hope you took our meaningful statement above to heart.
-The Halfpops Crew

Growing up, Mommy would buy us microwave popcorn, and the half popped kernels were my favorite pieces as well. I liked the ones that had half of the popped corn actually out.
But, back then, I had better teeth as well, and could crunch them without fear of giving myself a migraine from teeth pain.
I really wouldn't say these are half-popped kernels. They are more like the unpopped kernels in the bottom of the microwave bag (which, fun fact: don't try to re-pop the unpopped kernels from a microwave bag in a plastic bowl... While they will pop, you also leave 'kernel dents' in the bowl). They did hurt my teeth a bit while trying to eat them.
These are a bit spicy for me. I don't taste any 'Kettle Corn' taste, just the 'Angry' spices, which are onion and garlic powders.
Use the code 'LOVEWITHFOOD' on their website for a 20% discount on your next order.
TASTE: 8/10
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Non-GMO, Nut Free

FAWEN DRINKABLE SOUP in SWEET POTATO & RED LENTIL with CINNAMON
It actually smelled good, but after opening it and seeing the foil cover removed from the 'nozzle,' I REFUSED to try it for health reasons. I was unsure if it had been tampered with.
TASTE: REFUSED TO TRY
PERFECT FOR THESE TYPES OF DIETS: Gluten Free, Organic, Vegan, Non-GMO, Kosher

The biggest problem I see disabled folks having with these products are opening them. A LOT of the packages, I had to take scissors to, so if scissors aren't your strong point, you may have a problem opening these packages.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Still loving the variety in this month's box. I like how I got lots of snacks, all that are good for me.

Camp NaNoWriMo -- A Look Back

Camp NaNoWriMo -- A Look Back

What is Camp NaNoWrimo?
Camp NaNoWriMo is a virtual writer’s retreat, designed for maximum flexibility and creativity. We have Camp sessions in both April and July, and we welcome word-count goals between 30 and 1,000,000. In addition, writers can tackle any project they’d like, including new novel drafts, revision, poetry, scripts, and short stories.
For years, I've been saying I wanted to do ACTUAL NaNoWrimo, which is short for National Novel Writing Month. But I never get to do so; either I'm behind on reviews or other things in real life come up and I can't.

This year, however, a friend of mine, T Rea Harris, mentioned she was doing Camp NaNoWriMo and I was curious about it. I was shocked and excited to see I didn't HAVE to do a novel; I could do any time of writing I wanted. Seeing I was VERY behind on reviews, I decided to make my 'project' be blog posts.

I originally decided on a 60 post goal. I figured that was 2 posts a day... something I could handle. But then real life got in the way (along with an issue on LiveJournal that I STILL need to take care of and Verizon starting their issues again) and I ended up having to cut my goal in half to 30 posts.

And here it is, Day 29 and I'm still plugging away at it. However, THIS IS MY FINAL POST.

I did it.

Sure, I have to go back and edit a few posts, but that can be done whenever this weekend. I don't need to rush and HOPE I get done before April 30th at 11:59 PM. The original posts will stick.

That being said, This post completes my first Camp NaNoWriMo.

And what have I learned from Camp NaNoWriMo?

~A month flies by quicker than one thinks.
~I was further behind than I thought.
~I wasn't as prepared as I thought.
~My Mommy was right; I CAN do anything I put my mind to.

There is another Camp session in July. Depending on where I am with reviews, I may try doing a short story for July's session. If I'm still behind, I'll just do another project of Blog Posts.

I am actually HIGHLY considering doing the actual NaNoWriMo in November. That means The CP Chick more than likely will go on HIATUS for that month. I haven't decided yet if I will do it... 50,000 words seems like a goal I KNOW I wouldn't be able to achieve.

I hope my parents are up in heaven, smiling down with pride that I put my mind to a goal and I did it.

Pumpkin Spice Twinkies

Pumpkin Spice Twinkies

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Twinkie™ and all its creamy, cakey, golden goodness needs no introduction. Because this creamy, cakey, golden goodness has been enchanting the masses for generations. One sweet bite at a time.
I’ve become smitten with anything Pumpkin Spice flavored, Minus Hood’s Pumpkin Eggnog, which is odd, because growing up, I hated pumpkin ANYTHING. My Holiday Pie choices were Apple and that's it. I didn't want any other pie, and while my older family members would scarf Pumpkin Pie down, I refused to even try it.

These Pumpkin Spice Twinkies actually came out in either 2014 or 2015, but they were a Kroger exclusive at the time. We do not have a Kroger grocery store in NY, the closest Kroger being 265 miles away. So I resigned myself to the fact that unless I bought a box from eBay or Amazon, I’d never get to try these.

However, while doing my errands in November 2016, I spotted a 10-count box in the local Dollar General, and decided to give them a go, even though I hardly ever even ate Twinkies as a child.


The outer box I purchased^^


^^A Twinkie split in half^^

Biting into them reminded me WHY I hardly ate them as a child. They taste fake. The sponge cake is dry, almost to the point of feeling rubbery. The cream filling, while heavy on the pumpkin flavor, wasn’t as creamy as some of the other cream-filled desserts Hostess offers. I personally thought their Pumpkin/Swiss Rolls have a creamier filling to them. The texture was more of Cool Whip than whipped cream.

The main problem disabled people are going to have with these is actually OPENING the packages. These are individually wrapped, and with the ingredients used, these liked to stick to the plastic wrapper when opening. I nearly broke quite a few in half trying to remove them from the plastic wrapper. Chewing shouldn’t be an issue, unless you cannot chew.

Since these are a limited edition variety, I'm not 100% sure they are available all year round. As I stated above, They were initially only available at the Kroger family of stores, but they may be available at other stores.

FINAL THOUGHTS
While I usually like sweet foods, these were too sweet and too fake for me.

I got my first pair of glasses in 7th grade. The optometrist Mommy took me to was a complete fool and prescribed bifocals for me. The next year, Mommy took me to Sears Optical, where they found I didn't need bifocals at 13. Instead, I had astigmatism in my left eye, and I just needed corrective lenses.

But even back in 1991, eyeglass frames were really expensive. I tried to keep it as cheap as possible, but the frames I chose, which were plastic ones, still ran about $40,

As I got older, the prices of frames only increased, Even with insurance, my co-pay for glasses was $15-$20, and that was just for the frames,

I started thinking, There HAS to be a way to get quality frames on the cheap!

and there is... GlassesShop.com.

When I was first contacted by GlassesShop.com and asked to write a review for them, I was curious. Could mail order glasses REALLY be a good alternative to paying through the nose at my local optometrist's office?


^^Jersey frames in blue^^

After much consideration, I decided to choose the Jersey frames in blue for this review. Since it's not time for my exam yet, I opted for plain glass lenses.


^^Me wearing the frames^^

I'm not entirely sure if I accidentally chose a child style, or if I just have a large head, but these felt a bit snug on me. The plus side to that is the frames will stay securely on my face\head. The negative part is that the frames cut or dig into the sides of my face.

I really don't see disabled people having a problem using these. They are slip on and go, so unless you have absolutely NO use of your arms, you will be able to use these frames.

These frames, along with hundreds of other styles, are available from GlassesShop.com. They also carry Prescription sunglasses.

And as an added bonus, you can get 50% off on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses(sale frames excluded) with the code GSHOT50.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Great selection of frames at very affordable prices. When it's time for my next pair of glasses, I'm DEFINITELY using these frames!

Mighty Mug

Mighty Mug

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
This mug will not get pushed over when placed on any solid, flat surface, although you can pick it right up like any other mug thanks to smart grip technology. It has a double wall construction which will keep your beverage hot or cold longer and has a flip top lid which prevents leaks. Also includes a flex straw for your convenience.

Unspillable travel mug, powered with smart grip technology
-Mighty Mug grips to any smooth, flat, solid surface when you accidentally bump into it, but magically lifts up naturally, helping to avoid spilling
Can be used for hot or cold drinks
-Double wall construction keeps your beverage hot or cold longer
Car cup holder friendly and can be used with or without the included flex straw
Tritan double wall construction, made of crystal clear tritan wall plastic
Hold 20 oz. / 0.6 l. hand wash only
I spend a LOT of time at my computer, which is a laptop. I bounce back and forth between an Acer Chromebook and an ASUS laptop with Linux Mint 18 on it. Being I use laptops, I don't have the luxury or convenience on just switching out a keyboard if my drink gets spilled into it.

So when I saw Lew from Unbox Therapy feature this cup on his channel, it seemed to be the answer to my prayers and I knew I had to get one for myself.


^^Mighty Mug in blue^^

The way this cup works is there is a suction device in the bottom of the mug/cup. This suction device creates a seal between the mug/cup and the smooth surface, 'locking' the cup to the surface,

I really like this cup, because I personally am shaky, and if my arms have a spasm, I could easily knock a normal cup onto my laptop, and even with a keyboard skin on the laptop, it can be ruined. This prevents that from happening, by sealing itself to the table I have my laptop on. The cup does absorb minor bumps, but it would take a strong push or shove to actally knock it over.

I have used this with mainly cold or room temperature drinks, but I have used it for coffee before and it DID keep my coffee hot longer than normal mugs.

The only problem I see disabled people having with the mug/cup is picking it up once the suction is activated. It needs to be lifted STRAIGHT UP, not on an angle. if you try to lift the mug/cup up at an angle, the mug/cup will treat this as a bump and not release the suction hold.

This is available from TheMightyMug.com starting at $19.99. I, however, bought mine from eBay because I used Paypal to pay for it.

FINAL THOUGHTS
The perfect cup for those who want to feel safe with their drinks around electronics.

Veggie Fries

Veggie Fries

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Our story is probably your story; a family searching for healthy and delicious food for our three daughters. We achieved the best of both worlds in some of America’s most iconic foods. Our whole family loves French fries and tater tots, so we made them healthier; blending in our favorite vegetables to make a tasty nutritious treat. We experimented with over 300 recipes to create perfect fries and tots –extra crispy on the outside, fluffy and tender on the inside using a delicious blend of vegetables, legumes, and potatoes. We hope your family loves them as much as we do.
Believe it or not, I do like vegetables. Like I said, if I was allowed to make my own meals, I probably could go pesco-pollo-ovo-lacto vegetarian. (I'm NOT really a beef eater)

But the way veggies are made here, they are nothing short of disgusting. They are either undercooked or just bland.

One of my favorite 'veggies' is french fries. When Veggie Fries sent me two coupons for a free bag of their products, I was intrigued. Could this be the way I get veggies that taste good into my body? Let's find out.


^^Bag of Broccoli & Potatoes fries^^

BROCCOLI & POTATOES FRIES
I really couldn't taste the broccoli in these fries, but they did have a green tinge to them. They tasted just like regular french fries to me.
TASTE: 8/10


^^Bag of Carrots & Potatoes fries^^

CARROTS & POTATOES FRIES
These were so yummy. The carrots and the potatoes mixed together gave these fries a 'sweet potato' taste. These were the bigger 'hit' of the two, and they taste great with ketchup.
TASTE: 9.5/10

I don't really see disabled people having any issue with these, minus any allergy or chewing issues. Just put them on a baking sheet and bake as directed.

These fries are available from most major retailers. Please visit their Store Locator to find a location near you.

One of the yummier ways to get your RDA of veggies

Pasta Chips

Pasta Chips

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Inspired by an authentic Italian snack from the hills of Tuscany, Pasta Chips are a healthy take on a classic recipe. Made with Durum Wheat Semolina Flour -- the main ingredient found in premium pastas -- and Italian herbs, each chip is carefully cut to create the perfect edge and then baked until golden.

Crafted with fine seasonings based on regional Italian favorites, you can add a little taste of Italy to any of your favorite dips and cheeses, or enjoy simply from the bag. For a truly authentic experience, serve topped with basil and mozzarella or with marinara for dipping. We hope you enjoy Pasta Chips and the journey that brought it to life.

Buon Appetito!
Jerry Bello, Founder
Two of my favorite foods in the world are pasta and chip-style snacks. Anytime Mama Melissa's parents go out for supper, I'm making myself some type of pasta dish for my meal, and evidenced by my numerous Pringles reviews, those are my favorite chips.

So, when Pasta Chips agreed to send me some bags of their product for review, I was excited... Two of my favorite foods in one product! Total win-win situation!

I was sent 6 different flavors. Let's take a look at the flavors I was sent!


^^Collage of the flavors I received^^

ALFREDO
I have RARELY ate Alfredo. Mommy never made it, so only time I've ever ate it is if I've ordered it at a restaurant. Although, looking up what Alfredo sauce is, I feel like a real fool now, considering I've been making my own homemade Alfredo sauce for years.
The creamy Alfredo taste really shined through on these chips. I really liked the Parmesan flavor on these, and I think I even think I detected a hint of cream cheese flavor on these.
TASTE: 8.5/10

GARLIC OLIVE OIL
Very nice garlic taste on these chips. Not too heavy on the olive oil taste... almost seemed like a buttery taste with the garlic taste. One of my favorites of what I received.
TASTE: 9/10

MARINARA
This tasted just like the company used spaghetti sauce on crispy ravioli or lasagna noodles. These were okay, but that weren't really one of the standout flavors.
TASTE: 6.5/10

MEDITERRANEAN SEA SALT
All I tasted was an oily flavor with an abundance of salt. Seriously, I thought I was just eating straight up salt. I really didn't like these; they were WAY too salty for me.
TASTE: 5/10

SPICY TOMATO HERB
Another one that tasted like the company used spaghetti sauce on the chips, but this time, it seemed like they put either Tabasco or hot taco sauce in the spaghetti sauce. These were really good, but I couldn't eat too many of them at once, because the spiciness burned my mouth.
TASTE: 8/10

VEGGIE PASTA CHIPS in SPINACH BROCCOLI KALE & SEA SALT
Now, these were a treat... if I was allowed to make my own meals, I probably could go pesco-pollo-ovo-lacto vegetarian. The three veggie blended together SO nicely, I really couldn't tell the flavors apart. It was like eating a greens salad. My 2nd favorite bag of the shipment.
TASTE: 9/10

These bags have the ‘Ziploc’ style seals, and if not lined up properly, may not seal tightly. This is the MAIN issue I see disabled people having with these bags. I don't see any issues eating these as long as you can eat crispy chips.

Pasta Chips are available at most major retailers. Please visit Their Store Locator to find a store near you or buy online through their Online Store.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Great snack for those who love pasta and crunchy snacks.
