After featuring Milkadamia less than two weeks ago, I am so pleased to give my readers the opportunity to try my new favorite dairy-free milk. Two winners will each receive a container of Milkadamia to try in their sweet and savory recipes including smoothies, overnight oats, and so much more. My daughter is particularly very fond of their macadamia milk and asks for it for breakfast as a beverage or in her cereal.
I received free product and a store gift card in exchange for my honest review. All opinions and content are my own.
When it comes to celebrating the holidays and time with family and friends, I like to keep the prep time as easy and quick as possible, especially while raising and taking care of two young children under the age of four. To allow me that extra time and peace of mind, I look to ready-made party trays that have exactly what I love to enjoy. HORMEL Gatherings® has the perfect Party Tray that is versatile for all types of events from football games and tailgate parties, to holiday gatherings and family get togethers. I recently had the opportunity to review their Supreme Party Tray with hard Salami and Pepperoni.
The HORMEL GATHERINGS® Party Tray was very easy to find at my local Stop n’ Shop. I recommend you use their Store Locator to find where it is sold close to you. They are sold at most major grocery retailers including Walmart, Target and Shoprite. The 28 oz. tray includes HORMEL® Hard Salami, HORMEL® Genoa Salami, Sargento® Pepper Jack Cheese, Sargento® Colby Jack Cheese, Round Crispy Crackers, and Assorted Pitted Olives.

Lagostina’s new Lasagnera is so ideal for baking your favorite lasagna recipe in.
When I was a graduate student, commuting through and working in Manhattan, I unfortunately destroyed several pairs of flats while trudging through the city streets in all sorts of weather conditions, rain, sleet and snow. I could never predict the weather and always failed to wear my waterproof boots on the correct days. However, walking about the city in rubber boots and carrying a change of shoes was also quite difficult as I had my work and school materials with me at all times. Five years after I graduated and moved permanently to the East End, I was introduced to the most comfortable and stylish flats that are so ideal for travel, work, and leisure.
I discovered Ja-Vie’s stylish jelly flats at this year’s OCRFA Super Saturday, held in Watermill in July. Their booth was packed with customers and while I was visiting, I was able to find two styles that I loved. This was Ja-Vie’s second OCRFA Super Saturday. “We love the idea of helping the OCRFA and spreading the word about our shoes. We donated over 200 pairs!” says Ja-Vie Owner Kyra Kelly. “We will be back next year as well. It is an amazing event!”
