What makes GH Cretors taste so great?

The ingredients of course!  Why complicate things?  We don’t need to add any artificial colors or flavors to our popcorn to make it taste good. It does that all on its own.  You’ll know it when you grab your first handful. Artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives just get in the way of the wonderful flavors of freshly popped popcorn, our kettle cooked caramel, or our perfectly roasted nuts. Popcorn is naturally a Gluten Free snack.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil Organic Popcorn:

Today we make our Extra Virgin Olive Oil popped corn with three timeless ingredients: Organic Popcorn, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Sea Salt. We still use traditional small batch methods to pop our corn, like Great Grandpa Cretors did, but we have stayed modern by keeping our focus on purity. Each Organic batch is popped to perfection and seasoned with just the right amount of sea salt. From our kitchen to yours! Enjoy!

Simply Salted Organic Popcorn:

Today we make our Simply Salted popped corn with three timeless ingredients; Organic Popcorn, Organic Sunflower Oil and Sea Salt. We still use traditional small batch methods to pop our corn, like Great Grandpa Cretors did, but we have stayed modern by keeping our focus on purity. Each Organic batch is popped to perfection and seasoned with just the right amount of sea salt.

9 Winter Tips plus a WaterSavers Travel Prize Package Giveaway

watersavers
 
Living in the Midwest I’m learning all sorts of new things about taking care of my car.  I didn’t realize that salt could rust a car so quickly and I’ve learned the importance of keeping my vehicle clean and salt free.
Americans’ love affair with their cars is well documented, along with the dollars they spend each year to keep them running.  This is particularly evident in the winter time when the harsh elements can challenge even the most conscientious car owners.  One thing’s for sure:  Keeping your vehicle in good condition will ensure a safer ride in the short term and a higher resale or trade-in value down the road. 
 
So, before the cold weather takes hold for good, we’ve included the following tips to help your vehicles weather just about any storm!
 
1. A clean car is your first line of defense against winter.  While the winter season typically takes a toll on your car, proper maintenance can go a long way to preserving your investment.   For example, according to the International Carwash Association®, getting a new wash and a fresh coat of wax before the temperature starts to fluctuate can be your first line of defense against winter elements like ice, salt, sand and slush.
Vehicular corrosion also occurs most quickly when temperatures rise and then fall below freezing.  That’s why most auto manufacturers recommend getting your car washed and waxed at a professional car wash twice a month, especially during the winter.
2. Using a WaterSavers® Car Wash is a strong first step to ensuring that your car will be ready to withstand the winter elements – inside and out.  It’s also a great way to protect the environment.  For example, these car washes typically use only 40 gallons (151.5 liters) or less of fresh water per car wash.  Learn more and find a WaterSavers wash here.
 
3. Rotate your tires. Most people know they should get their oil changed every 3,000 miles, but many forget their tires need maintenance as well. Tires should be rotated before winter and then again every 6,000 miles.
 
4. Add some winter weight to your oil. Changing your oil and filter is especially important during the winter. Drivers who live in a colder climate should consider changing to heavier, winter-weight oil during the winter months.
 
5. Take care of your wiper blades. Your windshield wiper blades are your first line of defense when the snow starts to fly. Make sure your wiper blades are in good, working order and replace them if you have doubts. It’s better to make this change now instead of finding out your blades aren’t working when you really need them.
 
6. Take your car in for a tune-up. Any noises, pings or sluggish starts you currently notice will only intensify as the temperature drops. It’s best to get your vehicle in for a tune-up as soon as possible to get any issues addressed.
 
7. Give your steering some power. Check your powering steering fluid each month, and make sure the car is warmed up before you do so. If you find the level is low, look for leaks in the hoses or pump. Low power steering fluid will make your car more difficult to steer, which is something you’ll want to avoid as the roads get slick.
 
8. Protect yourself from carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide leaks are dangerous at any time, but they are especially deadly during the winter when you will be driving your vehicle with the windows closed. Have your exhaust system checked to make sure no leak exists.
 
9. Apply the brakes. Besides the seatbelt, your car’s brakes are its most important safety feature. This is especially true in the winter when slippery conditions can make stopping difficult. Before the first snow fall, bring your car to an experienced mechanic to verify that your brakes are ready for the season.
Cold winter temperatures mean vehicle maintenance is even more important. By following these simple tips listed above, you’ll be able to ward off winter’s harshest advances, protect your investment and those who ride inside of it.
WaterSavers has created a prize package to help you feel prepared for winter.  One lucky reader will receive:

Azazie - For all Your Dress Needs #review

Every girl needs a really good dress. I have found, especially as I get a little bit older, that having a good dress is a necessity for me. I never know when there will be a semi formal or formal event or wedding that I’ll need to attend and I love having a go to dress. By good dress I mean one that fits and compliments my figure.  I just love the selection over at Azazie.

Azazie is on a mission reinvent the way you shop for special occasion dresses. We believe that everyone should own custom-made pieces that are of the highest quality and tailored for a perfect fit – all the while being affordable. Our unique platform matches your needs to the skilled craftsmanship of a small group of artisan tailors and ships that one-of-a-kind dress right to your door.

I chose the Azazie Rylee Bridesmaid Dress in the color “pool”.  It’s a beautiful dress and very flattering.

Style Rylee by Azazie is a knee-length A-line/princess bridesmaid dress in a gorgeous chiffon. The attractive dress features a halter neckline and zipper up back style. A playful bow detail on the dress makes it feminine, flirty and sweet. Azazie’s Rylee style comes in sizes 2-26W.

Azazie - For all Your Dress Needs #review

One of my favorite features of shopping on their site is the fact that I can choose the color and actually see the dress in that color before making my decision.

Azazie - For all Your Dress Needs #review

The dresses do not run true to US sizes. I would highly recommend following their size chart no matter how much different their size is to what you normally wear.

I am thrilled with the quality of the dress. This site is perfect for bridesmaids dresses, prom dresses, and a fantastic place to find your “go to” dress. You can also find bridal gowns and accessories on the site.

Filmmaking Facts

  • Production on “Into the Woods” began in September, 2013 at Shepperton Studios and on locations throughout England.
  • Stephen Sondheim has received eight Tony® Awards, more than any other composer in history. He has won seven times: Best Music and Best Lyrics for “Company” (1971); and Best Score for “Follies” (1972), “A Little Night Music” (1973), “Sweeney Todd” (1979), “Into the Woods” (1988) and “Passion” (1994). His eighth honor was a 2008 Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre.
  • The foundation of the Woods set, built on Stage H at Shepperton Studios, was made up of 2,000 tons of soil, over 600 ferns, acres and acres of ivy and countless pallets of moss and turf.
  • 95 percent of the trees used on the Woods set were real trees, which included 30-foot pine trees and hundreds of 25-foot oak tree branches, the leaves of which had to be removed and replaced with artificial ones (so they would last longer). The remaining five percent were full-sized whimsical trees constructed from plaster.
  • There were four cows cast to play Milky-White. Their names were Tug, Diamond, Two Fold and Pearl.
  • Rapunzel’s hair in the film is 20 feet long. The braid is made from real hair and weighs almost six pounds.
  • The music for the film was pre-recorded over a two-week period at Angel Studios in London with a 56-piece orchestra, composed of some of the best musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra and London Philharmonic.

Into the Woods Movie Review #IntoTheWoods #MovieReview #movies #entertainment #review

I had the chance to see Into The Woods at an advanced screening last week, and let me tell you, it blew me away. I’ve never seen the stage production, so I was going in as a blank slate.
The film opens up with a introductory song that turned out to be one of my favorites. It really allows the viewers to see each of the characters that the film follows and understand what each secretly wishes for.
Into the Woods Movie Review #IntoTheWoods #MovieReview #movies #entertainment #review
From the moment this movie began I was hooked on the visuals. Every little detail is taken care of, the costumes are spectacular, the sets are spot on, and in its entirety the film creates a very enchanted, whimsical, and slightly haunting sight to behold.
Besides being beautiful to look at, the movie is comprised of a great cast. Who doesn’t love Meryl Streep? The answer is no one, because she is the be all, end all, of this film. Her portrayal of the witch ties everything together so well. The entire cast really give Into The Woods a lot of livelihood and color.
into the woods Into the Woods Movie Review #IntoTheWoods #MovieReview #movies #entertainment #review
They deliver killer vocals through out, some of my favorites include On The Steps of The Place (Anna Kendrick’s belt at the end gave me chills), Agony (These princes will kill you with humor), and of course No One is Alone. Seriously, if you weren’t into musicals before, after this movie you will be.
The pacing of the film is really good, and it never leaves you checking your watch to see how long must be left. Without giving away too much I will say that there is one point where I definitely thought the movie was over…until suddenly it wasn’t. There was entirely new plot to be figured out, which is a bit disorienting at first but not unpleasant.
into the woods Into the Woods Movie Review #IntoTheWoods #MovieReview #movies #entertainment #review
Overall this film is fantastic, I went into it with pretty high hopes that were endlessly met. While this film is rated PG I do believe it is probably geared towards an older audience, which is refreshing coming from Disney. Beautiful, haunting, and humorous; Into the Woods is a clever reimagining of the fairytales you thought you knew.

Starring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine and Johnny Depp, “Into the Woods” is a humorous and heartfelt musical that follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a Baker and his Wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the Witch who has put a curse on them.

Sometimes holidays and group gatherings are difficult for me because I have to eat gluten free. I have learned to eat before and keep snacks in my purse.  Most people don’t realize how many things have glutens in they don’t have to worry about glutens themselves. I do have friends that go out of their way to make sure I’m able to eat, but that’s not always the case.  One of my favorite gluten free brands is Udi’s.

Eat, Drink, and Be Merry with the help of Udi's Gluten Free  #EatDrinkBeMerry #GlutenFree #reviewI’m not sure if you’ve been on their website lately or if your local grocery store carries their stuff, but the new burrito’s are so good! I didn’t realize how much I missed eating burritos until I had one.  They have breakfast versions and others that are for lunch or dinner.  They even sell just the plain tortilla shells so you can make your own homemade burritos, soft shell tacos, quesadillas and more.
