Wine Country Gift Baskets - Mom's Coffee, Tea & Cocoa Assortment Review

Mother's Day is coming up, and I have found the perfect place for you to shop for a great Mother's Day Gift!

Wine Country Gift Baskets, has a wonderful assortment of beautiful gift baskets that will make your mother feel like she's been pampered and spoiled by you this holiday.

Every mom is different, with a variety of likes and dislikes, right? Some like tea, some love coffee.  Some moms love chocolate, some love cheese.  So it's important when shopping for a Mother's Day gift, to pick something that is completely "HER."

My mother and I switch back and forth between coffee and tea, depending on our mood, so when I saw  Mom's Tea, Coffee and Cocoa Assortment at Wine Country Gift Baskets, for only $34.95 with FREE shipping,  I was sold!

Mom's Coffee, Tea and Cocoa Assortment - FREE Standard Shipping!

Complete, with two sweet little blue striped coffee mugs, Tazo Tea (mom's favorite), Lily O'Brien's double chocolate chip cookies, chai tea shortbread, Italian milk chocolate pralines, Don Francisco's French roast coffee, Ghirardelli double chocolate hot cocoa, Go Naturally organic pomegranate candy and Beth's oatmeal raisin white chocolate chip cookies.  Talk about an assortment of YUM!

The tasty goodies, that came in my Mom's Coffee gift basket!

Wine Country Gift Baskets, sent me a Mom's Coffee, Tea & Cocoa Assortment to review, and I was so impressed.  I think I might have eaten both sets of cookies in one night, they were so tasty, oops!  The tea and coffee were both fantastic too.

I have to say, that the snazzy little blue and white polka dot tote bag the assortment came in, has been used almost daily - from taking snacks & supplies to the park, to packing books and toys for my daughter's recent car trips, visiting with G-Paw and G-Ma! Hey a mom uses whatever works, and this little tote works great!

The tote bag, that's my new best friend!

If you're on a tight budget this season, Wine Country Gift Baskets is still an option for you, as they have a number of gift baskets under $25.00 and with FREE SHIPPING!

Here are some of my favorites for Mother's Day, under $25.00:

At Wine Country Gift Baskets, Mother's Day isn't the only holiday that's celebrated.  You can shop by occasion, including:
  • Birthday
  • Thank You
  • Get Well
  •  New Baby
  • Housewarming.......and more! 

So, next time, you're in need of a unique gift, whether it be a fresh fruit basket, for your health conscious sister, a champagne selection for your newly engaged bestie, or even a golf themed gift basket for your father-in-law,  look no further than Wine Country Gift Baskets!

Formaticum Cheese Paper Review & Giveaway - ends 5/10

It's still National Grilled Cheese Month here at McKinney Mommas (barely)......

So, we have a few more cheese-related giveaways and reviews to share with you all, if you aren't already sick of CHEESE. I know I'm not.

I found a fantastic product, called Formaticum Cheese Paper during my hunt for cheese-related items to review for National Grilled Cheese Month.

Photo courtesy of:

One of my biggest complaints about buying "fancy cheese", is that I never feel like I can store it properly. Once you unwrap that precious block of cheese, it never seems to keep it's original moisture or texture, does it?  I always end up throwing away that last bit of cheese and feel so guilty about it. Never again. 

After receiving and using Formaticum Cheese Paper on my recent cheese samples, I'm convinced this is a product that meets my cheese storage needs and "protects my investments" when purchasing some of the higher priced cheeses.

Photo courtesy of:
The outer layer of cheese paper, is designed to protect and maintain the cheese's optimal humidity levels, simulating the cheese cave in which it was stored prior to purchasing the cheese. There is an inner porous layer of plastic, which allows the cheese to breathe, preventing moisture beads from settling on the surface.
My "fancy cheese" wrapped in Formaticum Cheese Paper
One package of Formaticum Cheese Papers is only $9.00 and includes (12) 11x14 sheets and 24 adhesive labels, you can use to identify the name of the cheese, style and date purchased. I have been showered with TONS of cheese samples this month, and am not even half way through my pack of cheese papers. Unless you're purchasing 1/2 wheels of cheese, on a regular basis, you'll be able to cut down the sheets to whatever size you'd like and make your collection of papers stretch!

Formaticum Cheese Papers & Labels - photo from

So, if you're into cheese, and want to protect your PRECIOUS cheese investments, like I do. Head over to and get yourself a set of cheese papers today.  Formaticum Cheese Papers are unique, yet incredibly useful = the perfect gift for the loved FOODIE in your life!


(2) Packages of Formaticum Cheese Papers (24 cheese papers & 48 labels)

My peanut with her Personalized Mother Goose Book!

Mother's Day Gift Idea - Vintage Jewelry

It's time to start looking for Mother's Day gifts, as Mother's Day is right around the corner (May 13, 2012). I will be posting some ideas for gifts as the day gets closer. From the practical items, such as spatulas, aprons, and dishes to the more fashionable, purses, shoes, and accessories.

I know it's slightly cliché, but a lot of women I know love jewelery. Actually, my mother was not a huge jewelry fan when I was growing up, but now that her children are grown, and she has more time (a little?) to focus on herself she's started accessorizing more.  Finding the perfect article of jewelry for my mom takes a lot of time.  It's important to me that I pick something out that she'll know was just for her, and not a quick on the fly purchase.

Personally, I love unique and vintage jewelry. I'd rather find a special little ring all tarnished and dinged up, that I can coax back to it's original beauty – instead of something new from a jewelry store in the mall.  As a mother now myself, I like jewelry that has a story.  Something that you can tell has been cherished in a family for years. and passed on from generation to generation.

Over the years, I've picked up vintage pieces of jewelry myself at on ebay, thrift stores, estate sales and even garage sales. I haven't yet, had the pleasure of being able to afford beautiful Edwardian jewelry [Circa 1890 – 1915] but would love to own one of these treasures to pass down to my daughters someday.

It's easier and easier to find vintage jewelry online these days, so you no longer have to paw through all the junk you might come across at a thrift store or estate sale in person.  It's great since many of these companies online will do the work for you, finding precious pieces of vintage jewelry, clean them up and list them for sale online. This way, you can shop by metal, price, style, stone, etc. to find the perfect piece of vintage jewelry.

So, if you're not sure what to get for your mother yet on this Mother's Day, do a little searching online for vintage or antique jewelry and see what treasures you can uncover for your mother this holiday.

Tips for dealing with these darn Tree Pollen allergies - courtsey of Children's Claritin

 I'm proud to announce that I was recently chosen to be a part of the Children's Claritin - Mom Crew!

I received a cool Children's Claritin - Mom Crew Tote Bag and a slew of samples to pass out to my neighbors and friends.

This means that throughout the year, I'll be sharing with all of you tips on managing your kiddo's allergies. Please feel free to comment on these blog posts, your own experiences as a mom of a kid with allergies.  Let's all share the "mom allergy wisdom" with each other.

The Claritin® Allergen Guide: Tree Pollen Edition
Outdoor allergens like seasonal pollens and molds can be difficult to manage because it seems like they're everywhere and you can't escape them. Many of them occur at the time you want to be able to enjoy the outdoors, too- like right now! Here's a closer look at a common culprit, tree pollen. Knowing what to look for can help you steer clear of these notorious allergy triggers:
Tree Pollens
When it comes to trees, the real allergy troublemakers are hardwood deciduous trees — oak, elm, birch, maple, ash, alder and hazel:
  • These trees generally pollinate from February to April or May.
  • In the South, these trees begin pollinating as early as January; in the North, they begin in April.
  • People show cross-reactivity to trees in the beech, birch, alder and oak family, and in the juniper and cedar family. This means that if you're allergic to one type of tree, you're likely allergic to others in the same family.
  • If you're looking to plant trees on your property, look for species that do not aggravate allergies, such as catalpa, crepe myrtle, dogwood, fig, fir, palm, pear, plum, redbud and redwood trees. 
 For more information on Children's Claritin, please visit:

And if those allergies are really forcing your little ones to play inside for a day or two, here are some FUN Spring crafty activities you can download to do with your kiddos while you're laying low!  CLICK HERE to download some FUN FLOWER CRAFTS!

*Disclosure:  As a member of the Children's Claritin Mom Crew, I receive product samples and promotional items to share and use as I see fit.  No monetary compensation has taken place and any opinions expressed by me are honest and reflect my actual experience.

Artisanal Premium Cheese - Review & GIVEAWAY - ends 5/1/12

You've probably heard of a digital clock, analog clock, a pendulum clock, and even a cuckoo clock; but have you ever heard of a CheeseClock™?

I hadn't heard of a CheeseClock™ prior to stumbling into a fantastic cheese retailer, Artisanal Premium Cheese.  The CheeseClock™ is a great guide to setting up a cheese tasting plate for your next Wine & Cheese party, as a way to "best" enjoy the varying nuances of a selection of cheeses. Heck, you don't even have to have a party, I used the CheeseClock™ just for myself the other night, when setting up my own cheese plate for dessert! Yes, I eat cheese for dessert.....often. Don't judge.

Since I wasn't able to visit Artisanal Premium Cheese in NY on such short notice, Artisanal Cheese sent some fantastic selections straight to my door, here in Texas. Their online cheese shop, is extensive and manned (woman-ed) by passionate cheese professionals that take their time to make sure each of the 200 cheeses they offer are matured and ripened to perfection.

They have a fantastic selection of artisan stand-alone cheeses, as well as gift baskets, books, cheese tools and more.

I was sent the Artisanal CheeseClock Collection, which came in a gorgeous red, reusable tin, and included four cheeses varying from mild to strong.  If you're a beginner in the world of cheese tasting, this is a fantastic way to try a wide variety of cheeses to see if you have a preference for a certain type or style of cheese.

The lovely CheeseClock Collection that was sent to me! Perfect for a gift!

Even if you're an old pro in the world of cheese, or are looking to buy a gift for the beloved foodie in your life, I can promise you they will thoroughly enjoy the CheeseClock Collection from Artisanal Premium Cheese. The selection can vary, based on seasonal availability of certain cheeses, but in my CheeseClock collection I had:
  • Geit-in-Stad - Mild - (Netherlands)  This was an excellent, firm goat cheese
  • Terraluna - Medium - (Utah) Nice, salty Cow's milk cheddar-like cheese
  • Mousseron Jurassian - Bold - (France)  A complex, mushroom-esque raw Cow's milk cheese
  • Gouda - Strong - (Netherlands) I want this one shaved on top of a chocolate soufflé - for real!
Here is MY CheeseClock plate from the Artisanal CheeseClock Collection

Artisanal Cheese is the perfect resource to help you prepare for your next cheese tasting party, as they have a nice section where you can get recommendations for wine & cheese pairings.  There is an easy to view, drop down box where you can select what type of wine you'd like to serve and a list of cheese recommendations will pop up for you! Simple as that.

What I wouldn't give up to live in New York, so I could "stumble" into the actual Artisanal Premium Cheese Center and take one of their tasting classes this month:

Artisanal has revolutionized cheese appreciation in the United States by making the world's finest cheeses available nationwide as never before. What sets Artisanal Premium Cheese apart is the art of affinage - an ancient practice by which our passionate cheese professionals complete the cheese maker's labor of love by patiently nurturing each of the 200 cheeses we offer to optimal ripeness and peak flavor. With a dedicated staff of affineurs, and state-of-the-art aging caves, Artisanal alone provides top quality cheese for fine-dining restaurants, specialty gourmet stores, and to directly to consumers.

And if that's not enough cheese talk (rather, CheeseClock) to keep you satisfied for the week.............

    Photo Gifts from Shutterfly for Mother's Day, Father's Day and Graduation Gifts

    Photo ©:  Mather Photography
    My daughter was the first grandchild on my side of the family, welcomed very happily by the family after 8 years of marriage (it was about time!)  Since her birth, it's been fun getting to shop around the web for gifts for the grandparents and see which ones were best received by both sides of the family.

    Now, I've been using Shutterfly for my digital photos and sharing online, since WAY before my daughter was born.  However, it was only after she was born that I started using Shutterfly to make and order photo gifts for my family.  

    It's pretty unanimous, photo gifts are one that both sets of grandparents can't get enough of, and can't stop talking about. My daughter's proud grandparents love to show off her smiley face, so we've given them both photo books and photo mugs over the last year for birthdays and holidays from Shutterfly. 

    We gave these photo mugs "from our little peanut" to her grandparents over the holidays!

    My husband has started asking for "new pictures" of his kiddo to display on his desk at work.  I'm thinking that for Father's Day, we'll probably create a personalized desk calendar for him to take to his work, so he can show off our little peanut to his colleagues.

    Desk Calendars at

    ......and I sure I wouldn't mind if one of you want to hint to my husband that I'd love any of these photo gifts for Mother's Day:

    iPhone Case - for my NEW iPhone :-)
    A Canvas Print for my bare wall!

    I love that Shutterfly is constantly having special offers and promotional deals, so you can usually find a discount or coupon code for those digital prints or photo gift that you create for a Graduation, Mother's Day or Father's Day gift! 

    Sign up for their newsletter, or follow them on Twitter or Facebook to be sure to catch the coupon codes and promotional deals they offer (I DO and probably haven't paid full price since!)
