Kaskey Kids (Review)

Kaskey Kids


The concept for Kaskey Kids came together in 2002. Christy Kaskey blended her desire to find the perfect toy for her sports loving kids, with the memory she had of her brothers entertaining themselves for hours on end with the classic action figures of their childhood; Army Men, Super Heroes and Cowboys and Indians. Christy wanted to retain the value behind these classic toys and the benefits they gave of open-ended, child-driven, fun and imaginary play, but wanted the action figures for her children to focus on the sports they loved.

My son has been playing with miniature toys since he was a toddler. By him being the only child for many years and with our cold winters. He learned very fast how to keep his self entertained. My son is a sports fanatic. He enjoys all sports. I was so excited when Kaskey Kids offered me the opportunity to review a ten packtheir miniature baseball players. I knew this would be the perfect fit for my family. my son loves playing with the miniature action figures.He is even at the point with he is writing his own plays from them. The miniature figures allow my son to see the concept and visual strategy of baseball. The miniature baseball action figures are extremely detailed and durable, we can even bring them with us when we go to visit our family/friends . I love how versatile this product is, it is also an amazing conversation piece for adults. I am looking forward to the great laughs we are going to have over the miniature action figures. Overall I found the miniature action set to be a great learning tool for my son I strongly encourage imaginative play in my home and I believe Kaskey Kids provides that tool for my son with their products.

Tropical Traditions Review & Giveaway

Photo of organic Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil 32 oz. glass jar from Tropical Traditions

Tropical Traditions – America’s Source for Coconut Oil!!

About

Tropical Traditions provides organic foods grown on family farms, non-toxic household products, and organic based skin care products. Founded in 2002 by Brian W. Shilhavy and his wife Marianita Jader Shilhavy, they’re the first business in the US to develop and sell organic virgin coconut oil, and are still number 1 today. 10 years of delicious and pure coco nutty goodness!

Want to learn exactly what is virgin coconut oil?


Once I received Tropical Traditions coconut oil in the mail. I immediately opened the package. I am huge fan of coconut oil for numerous reason. However, the quality of the product plays a major role. After opening the jar, The quality of this product receives two thumbs up. The Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is USDA Certified Organic and has highest quality coconut oil. It is handmade, and has high lauric acid, also contains high levels of antioxidants, and non-GMO.

My number on use for coconut oil is for my hair.I am 100% natural, and coconut oil plays a major role with my hair. I also have everyone in my home using it for that matter. I only use the best quality coconut products in my home and I have now found the perfect product. I love the texture of Tropical Traditions coconut oil. I was able to wash my hair and apply a generous amount of Tropical Traditions coconut oil  . Deep condition under the dryer  for about 15 minutes and  rinse my hair and comb right through my hair. After I used Tropical Traditions my hair was more softer, shiner, and looked amazing :). I can honestly say that this is the best coconut oil on the market. Tropical Traditions coconut oil works wonders as a conditioner among other things. I also love to use Tropical Traditions coconut oil to moisturize my skin. I applied a small amount on my hands and then rubbed them together (the coconut oil will melt in your hands)then applied the product on my arms, legs and feet. The next day i noticed how amazing my skin felt. It did not feel oily it felt just right. my husband even complemented me on the smell and also how soft my skin felt. Check out additional information about the coconut oil hair treatment.


One of my second favorite uses for Tropical Traditions coconut oil is to use it for cooking! You guys know I love to try new recipes and boy have I been missing out on adding Tropical Traditions coconut oil to my smoothies. (you will thank me later)



My verdict?

Tropical Traditions Gold Label Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is the best product on the market. You can not bet the price and the high quality of this product and the reputation that Tropical Traditions has!


Ingredients: 100% organic virgin coconut oil

USDA Certified Organic?: Yes!

Average Price: They sell everything from 1 pint (19.95) to 5 GALLONS (250.00). This 32 oz jar’s regular price is 29.50

(Recipe adapted from Food Network)
Recipe: via yields 12

1 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup orange juice
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temp)
2 teaspoons grated orange zest

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Put the cranberries and orange juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Remove from heat, and set aside to cool and plump.
Line muffin tin. Sift (all dry ingredients) flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl and set aside.
In a standing mixer ( paddle attachment) cream butter, orange zest, and sugar until light and fluffy(about 2 minutes). Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Add eggs, one at a time. Remove the bowl from the mixer.

Fold the flour in 3 parts into the butter mixture, alternating with the milk in 2 parts, until just combined. Fold in the cranberries. (Do not over mix) Divide the batter evenly into the muffin tins and sprinkle the tops with sugar. Bake until golden brown ( 25 minutes) Cool muffins in the pan on a rack.
