My new name is "Granny J" according to the sweet baby additions to my family. I have traveled, remodeled homes, managed executives, and ran my own home business. Hopefully in all I have done I might have a little something to say about a lot of things.
The perfect sausage for shish kabobs.. Always tastes fresh and plumps well with lots of juices. Not the most inexpensive brand, but definitely the best. Can be served cold or hot. Makes great appetizers on toothpicks, or added to stir fry or soups.
I have tried all the different brands of cream cheese to save a buck, but Philadelphia always wins in terms of flavor, texture, creaminess and value, and is good with almost anything you can think of. I put a block on a platter covered with apricot or strawberry preserves and surround with crackers and it is the best appetizer They have recipes in the box too, and they are great! Try some Philadelphia cream cheese next time you shop!
I have to say this is the best grape jelly on the market. I've eaten pb&j with this since I was a kid. Now, my favorite thing to do is mix one jar of this with a bottle of ketchup and putting it over little smokies in the crockpot. Best and easiest appetizer for those family get togethers. Try this jelly today.
This is a great toothpaste. I trust Arm & Hammer and I know the power of baking soda when brushing your teeth. The flavor is not quite as strong as some of the others out there, which is a plus for me. The price is great and it doesn't take a lot of product to work.
I purchased this after using Bare Minerals for several years. Needless to say, there is no comparison. The colors are not as creamy, full and rich, and they have too much shimmer. They are much dryer than Bare Minerals so it seemed streaky or had dark spots. By the end of the day, my face didn't look good, the coverage wasn't very good, and as with most store brand makeups, it turned orange. Wouldn't purchase again, but for someone who doesn't have a preference , it might be just the thing!
This is by far, hands down, the best mineral makeup foundation on the market. The entire collection is fabulous, but nothing will ever compare to the original foundation from Bare Minerals. They are dependable, and have stood the test of time in a very competitive market. Kudos Bare Minerals!
This is like rubbing liquid silk onto your skin, but it's not a liquid. Makes your skin so soft and smooth. This is great for holding on that mineral makeup and helps in preventing that oily shine later in the day. On off days I mix with a little bb cream and it's great coverage and protection without any work. Diminishes fine lines, and softens those dry spots without ever being oily. An amazing product.
I don't know specifically if this is the exact bronzer, but the one I have is light enough you could use as an all over face color. It is shimmery and tan. It is too light to do just specific areas with any impact but it great for a "no makeup" look.
This blush was not exactly what I had hoped for. It was a little heavy with too much shimmer. I didn't find that it blended as well as what I was used to, and had dark spots or streaks even though I applied it the same as my other blush. The cover broke almost immediately which led to the blush spilling out all in my makeup bag. Also, as a sidenote, the makeup brush contained in this is pointless. You could almost do as much good with a toothbrush. :)
This is a great Saturday in the yard BB Cream. Keeps you moisturized, provides sun protection, all while keeping you looking great with a slight amount of coverage. Easy squeeze bottle, and a great price! Works great mixing a little with some primer before putting on your foundation too!
