Gourmet Gift Baskets #2

Shopping for someone who seems to have everything they already want is hard to do...

So is the task when you don't know someone's taste & don't have a clue what to get them. Whether it's a birthday, baby shower, holiday, gathering of some sort or "just because," is the everyday solution. Featured on Fox News, Dr. Phil & in Woman's Day, the company has really made a name for itself.

From baked goods to beer to flowers, fruit & candles, they have it all. While endless selections may sound stressful, it doesn't have to be. In fact, makes it easy for you to choose. Shop by occasion, category, theme, recipient or price. With baskets starting at $24.99, you'll be able to stay within your budget. You can even purchase now & they'll ship later; then you don't have to worry about remembering that important "date," & you'll save on shipping costs!

I was able to sample the Brownies Sampler Bakery Gift. This particular $34.99 ensemble includes 2 each of the following flavors:

· Belgian Chocolate Chunk
· White Chocolate Macadamia Blonde
· Butterscotch Blonde
· Cheesecake
· Peanut Butter
· Fudge Walnut

The portions are well-sized, ranging from 3.5 to 4oz's apiece. Naturally they all were delicious; there were no complaints, only oo's & ah's by the family, & the brownies were polished off within 2 days. Soft & easy to bite into, they stayed in tact during each bite. I've had the experience of crumbs getting everywhere in the past, so this was a nice change. The toppings truly engulf the flavoring of each brownie, & add to it's texture. For instance, the Peanut Butter Brownie had a slight crunch to it, & the more I chewed it, the more peanut butter I began to taste.

I never had before got the concept of "gourmet" until I tasted the Cheesecake Brownie. It has such a simple name, & yet an intricate look. I'd say it's portioned with 70% dark, gooey brownie & topped with 30% sweet, tasty cheesecake. As a very picky cheesecake eater, you can take my word when I say it was absolutely delicious (yes, more-so than the picture portrays). Sometimes brownies can be "too" rich- this is NOT one of those brownies.

Put a SINCERE smile on someone's face this year... shop!

Smelly Washer Cleaner... Stinky towels? Get to the ROOT of the Problem!

Smelly Washer Cleaner was a breeze to use & yielded excellent results... & I have the pictures to prove it!

Often times, washers are left neglected. We associate them with cleaning our clothes, thereby cleaning themselves every time. It is not until they begin to have a tinge & need a good scrubbing before we decide to do something about it. At least that's how the story goes in our household of 5...

Being I can't remember the last time anyone attempted to clean our washer, I decided to throw in an extra cap full of the Smelly Washer Cleaner treatment prior to filling it with hot water & letting it soak. Then I completed the washing cycle (minus the clothes, of course). I was quite surprised with the results.

Not only did my 5 year old washer look brand new, but thanks to Smelly Washer Cleaner, it smelled so too. Furthermore, while there usually is, there was no more undissolved detergent or dog hair waiting for the next load of clothes to wipe it up. This all natural cleaner cleaned with no physical labor, scrubbing, or time on my part involved!

I'll be using Smelly Washer Cleaner monthly, & as the bottle claims it'll provide 24 treatments, it'll be 2 years before I run out! Although cleaning a washer is not something we ever think about, it's just one of those things that have to be done. Stinky towels? Get to the ROOT of the problem!
