Country Bob's was started in 1968 by Country Bob Edison with his All Purpose Sauce. It became an official company in October of 1982. And thank goodness it did! Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce is the perfect addition to any meal. Once you try it, you'll be hooked.
And so he did... We bought some country style ribs and slathered them down with our new Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce and let them soak for a little while. A few hours later we stuck them in the oven and played the waiting game. I invited my grandfather over for dinner that night to see what he thought of it too. I know how much he loves his barbecue so I know if he liked it, then it had to be good!
A couple of hours later, the ribs were done and they were falling off the bone. The sweet aroma of the marinade filled our house and it was time to eat. My first bite had me speechless. In fact, I never said a word through the entire meal. The sauce was absolutely perfect. It's sweet and slightly tangy so it sparks every taste bud. It wasn't overwhelming and it flavored the ribs so wonderfully. I can't really describe it, you just have to find out for yourself! I do apologize for not having pictures of the cooked ribs. I just didn't have time to take any. As soon as the ribs were done, they were gone. That's just how good it was!
Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce isn't just good for marinades either. You can use it on burgers, fries, steaks, and pretty much anything else you can think of! (I guess that's why its All Purpose isn't it?) We also made chicken and it went great on that! Overall, I HIGHLY recommend Country Bob's to anyone with taste buds. Once you try it, you will keep wanting more. You can purchase it on their website or even in local stores. They have a neat little map at the bottom of their page with a store locator to see where you can pick up your own bottle of Country Bob's. And they don't just have All Purpose Sauce for sale. They also have a Spicy All Purpose Sauce, Barbeque Sauce, and Seasoning Salt. Each bottle comes with a pamphlet that has recipe's in it. You can learn to cook something Country Bob's style and feed your family the right way! I know I'll be trying a few of those. So stop by their website, check it out, and go get some Country Bob's. You won't regret it!

I'm sure everyone has heard of the term "Going Green" plenty of times in the past year or two. Recycle your used paper and plastic, don't litter, and figure out how to re-use things and make things more environmentally friendly. Since the Green Revolution, many people have begun recycling their trash, newspapers, plastic bottles, and other items. There is one thing, however, that gets missed. Straws are commonly used in restaurants and fast food. They always find their way to a garbage can or ditch, but never to a recycling bin. Most people overlook them, but one company took the initiative to start their own Straw Revolution and create the Glass Straw.
Glass Dharma has devoted their time to hand-making wonderful glass straws to "contribute one solution to the misuse of plastics in our society." Their products are simple in design, but make a big statement when it comes to recycling and helping the environment.
I received four of these wonderful straws to review. I got a Beautiful Bends Ice Tea Size, 2 Decorative Dots: 1 Sipper Size and 1 Ice Tea Size, and a Simple Elegance Smoothie Size. They came in labeled boxes with 2 cleaning wires. (Note: Not all straw purchases come with cleaning wires!)
I love the simple designs. The decorative dots add little bits of flare. They are so simple and yet still have a nice elegance. They also make a wonderful conversation starter. The Beautiful Bend is my personal favorite. It reminds me of my not-so-long-ago childhood when bendy straws were my favorite thing in the world!
I thoroughly enjoy having these to use. I feel like I have made my first real transition into the world of Going Green. I will continue to use these and recommend them to anyone else I come across that does not yet have some of their own.
I feel like I should leave you with some more information before the giveaway. So here goes...
- Glass straws don’t leach toxins into your food as you drink.
- Each time you use your glass straw equals one less plastic straw ending up in your landfill.
- One glass straw replaces thousands of plastic straws. (How many times will you use a straw the rest of your life?)
- Using your glass drinking straw adds a feeling of beauty to your day.
- Made of borosilicate tubing and is the strongest glass commercially available.
Means that we have spared no expense in bringing you the strongest, most durable drinking straw possible.
- Annealed to Corning, Inc. specifications (a process that strengthens the glass).
So you can have confidence you are purchasing the highest quality glass straws available.

So you can use your non-toxic straws with confidence.

Buying from GlassDharma means that your dollar is not going off-shore - it stays right here in the U.S.A.
growing trend and that it will not be long before glass drinking
straws will be a normal part of everyday kitchenware in every
household. We are looking for businesses to partner with to
make this a reality. Our hope is that you will find our drinking
straws a good fit with your present product line and wish to
develop a business relationship that not just helps each other, but
benefits the world as well.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
David Leonhardt, Owner"

For my review, I received three belly rings. Each one offered something a little different and has its own unique style. They are all extremely light weight and comfortable. Plus, they have shorter bars for less of a chance of getting snagged on something.
Double Heart Crystal Heart Belly Button Ring in purple. It's 14g surgical steel, which is great for me because I have very sensitive skin. The hearts are absolutely adorable and glitter in the right light. I love wearing this when I go to the pool or beach, just so I can show it off in my bikini. :]
The second one I chose was the Double Gem Belly Button Ring in purple. I think there's a short pattern here, purple is my favorite color. I really like this ring because it's subtle and stylish. It's one of those rings you would show off to your friends if you were telling them about your piercing for the first time. I also love the fact that has a plastic bar so you can wear it regardless of any metal allergies. This also makes it considerably more comfortable. You really don't even feel that it's there.
Four Leaf Clover Double Charm Belly Button Ring in pink. The color is so vibrant and it's so cute with the right outfit/bathing suit. It is somewhat heavier than my previous dangly rings, but it is still very fitting and not uncomfortable in the least. The pink clover is covered by a separate metal outline piece and it can dangle together to look solid, or slightly apart to have a shadow effect. This ring has so much personality and they have it in other colors for whatever look you are trying to achieve.
Overall, my experience with Belly Charms has been outstanding. I love their range of products and how each one of them is made with love for mothers and mothers-to-be. I honestly believe, no matter what you're searching for, that you will find the perfect thing for you or your own mother. This website is wonderful and they have high quality products. I highly recommend it to anyone.
