Betty Crocker Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Mix Review: Absolutely delicious!

As I mentioned in my September pipeline post, I splurged on a box of Betty Crocker Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Mix after loving their Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix. My local Hy-vee store stocks them next to the traditional baking mixes, so it's right there in my face - those amazing, mouthwatering photos of delicious baked goods.

It was super easy to bake these brownies. Like most mixes, you just add a couple of kitchen staples, mix, and pour in a brownie pan. I lined my pan with parchment paper to make cooling and cleanup easier. 

After baking for the recommended time, the brownies looked done. However, a knife test showed they were actually still underdone. I ended up giving them an extra five minutes. After letting the pan rest on a wire rack for 15 minutes, I lifted out the parchment paper and let the brownies cool completely on a cutting board. Cutting was a breeze, but at this point I noticed the brownies were fairly thin compared to when I bake Ghirardelli brownies in the same size pan.
Yummy brownie!
I liked how the end pieces weren't that much more cooked than the center. Every brownie tasted yummy. The flavor was rich without being too sweet. I ate four in five minutes! One day later, my family had devoured them all. So there you go... a winner.

I don't know that it's worth paying more for this mix than I do for Ghirardelli since I don't need a gluten free option, but if you are someone who needs to be, or chooses to be, gluten free, it's well worth checking out these brownies by Betty Crocker.

eSalon.com Hair Color Review

It's now May 2014 and since my original review, I've had a chance to fly out to eSalon and see how orders are processed, learn the right way to apply color, and find out the differences between box color and eSalon color. I learned a lot and have a totally different perspective now and would definitely recommend giving eSalon a try.

When you order from eSalon, be sure to upload a current, well-lit photo of your hair and don't hesitate to ask their color experts for advice. The eSalon team are experts. Let them help you find the right shade and apply color correctly. It's a learning process if you're used to box color products.

Last August, I tried eSalon. At the time, I found the color was fine in that it was even and matched what I had seen online for that shade, but it wasn't really what I was going for. eSalon's customer service was helpful, with a colorist calling to explain how their product differs from what I buy in-store and the risks of going darke…

Switching from Olay Regenerist to L'Oreal RevitaLift

I've been using Olay Regenerist DNA Superstructure UV Cream for years now. I love the SPF 25 (it's now 30) the thick moisturizing quality, and how fresh my skin feels once it's absorbed. It's really thick, so it tends to need more time before I put on foundation, and it does leave my skin a touch lighter than it is in real life. The sunscreen ingredients mean this moisturizer smells just like traditional sun protection, and even a bit like my daughter's diaper cream (ick), but I know it's doing it's job and I've been really happy with it.


I intended to buy some more during a trip to Walmart today, but L'Oreal RevitaLift Triple Power Day Lotion had a $2 off coupon attached, and the base price was less than the Olay product, so I took a chance and bought  the RevitaLift instead.


L'Oreal's bottle is prettier with a similar pump mechanism. Like Olay, the product is in an opaque container, which helps keep the contents from being affected by ligh…

Garnier Olia Hair Color Review

BzzAgent sent me a coupon to try Garnier Olia haircolor and I was super excited to try a new color. Anyone who knows me knows that I've been coloring my hair since I was 13 years old. I've tried many shades from bright blue, purple, and fire engine red to pricey complex process salon dye jobs.

I've stuck to mostly brown shades for the past couple of years and wanted a change. Most of my adult life, I've used either reddish tint or bolder rusty reds, so it seemed like a fun idea to go back to that for a while. Honestly, it was a little challenging to pick a shade I wanted to try because my experience with box color "light" and "medium" seems different from the example photos on Olia boxes. The brown and red shades look darker than what I would call "light," for example.

At Walmart, there were 14 of the 24 Olia shades in stock, which narrowed down my choice. Since I was fearful of trying any light colors in case they were too light for me, a…
