Teasia Tea

I always love to review new products, but practical products are always my favorite to sample. K-cup machine’s have become staple in many households. Easy to use, easy to clean and always ready when you need it. K-cup machines are not just for coffee anymore they make a great cup of tea. I was recently sent a case of k-cups from the Teasia company. It included a wonderful mix of both decaf and caffeinated tea’s. No need to mess with the teabag or with looseleaf teas, just brew a k-cup just like you would coffee. The best part is k-cups can be reused so that they each make 2 great cups of tea.

Teasia Tea makes a line of natural teas from the highest quality ingredients with no artificial additives or chemicals. Teasia strives for purity, integrity, and authenticity in all teas with a goal to create a healthy alternative beverage to enjoy guilt-free in the most convenient form.

The flavors are all wonderful. Each is nice and smooth with a full flavor profile. I would have to say my favorite was the Chamomile Mint and Rose Black.

Corn-dog Review and Giveaway

Finding grab and go items that are safely gluten free and delicious is getting easier. I recently received some samples of Gluten Free Corn-dogs from Foster Farms. It must have been at least 10 years since I have had a real good corn dog. These guys did a great job. A wonderful juicy chicken dog that snaps when you bite into it. The dog is wrapped in a light slightly sweet and salty corn batter. Golden brown on the outside, holds together really well and the best part is that its on a stick :). This a great item to keep around for an after school treat, fun dinners or even a mid-night snack.

At 180 calories and 7 grams of protein a piece. Only 6 grams of sugar and 2.5g of fat.

You can prepare them a few different ways according to the box. The oven seemed to work the best. Heating in the microwave is fine and it tasted great but the crust will crack a bit. I also put them on the top rack of my BBQ which worked well too.

Conventional Oven:
Preheat oven to 350° F
Frozen heat for 18 minutes
Thawed heat for 10 minutes

Microwave: On high
Frozen heat for 48 seconds
Thawed heat for 30 seconds
For best results, flip corn dogs halfway through cooking

Deep Fried:
Cook at 350° – 375° F
Frozen heat for 9 minutes
Thawed heat for 3 minutes

5 lucky readers will win a voucher for a FREE BOX. This is what you need to do:
– “like” the Foster Farms Facebook page
– “like the guilt free foodie cutie page”
– leave a comment on this post about what is your favorite condiment to serve with a corn-dog…..get creative 🙂
