Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil Review

I am proud to be writing this review for "Tropical Traditions virgin coconut oil."  A 100% hand made virgin oil made in the traditional way of hand shaving the pulp from the insides of the coconuts, and going through the painstaking process of pressing the pulp to make the oil. Now due to the fact that this process is done by hand and not by machine it makes this not only a great quality product, it makes it one of the few companies trying to keep with traditions and keep the old methods alive. They are also trying to keep their community alive by using local products and keeping the company employee's local too!

Now I'm not going to bore you with a whole background on the company. If you would like to know more about the company and their products you can check them out at their website tropical traditions. So back to the review. Being a baker I have used a lot of products that are supposed to be healthier then using butter or lard, and I have to say this has become my new favorite. Not only does it incorporate very well, but it has a very subtle flavor so you hardly know that it wasn't butter you used. There are many benefits to using virgin coconut oil as a replacement for butter and fats, not just for the fat content alone but also the health benefits. Since there are very few calories in coconut oil it makes it not just the smart choice but also the healthier choice, rather then lard, butter, veg oil, peanut oil, or even olive oil. And due to the lower fat and calorie content it makes whatever you are making a very creamy and smooth with little to no flavor difference with the final product. I am very pleased with this product and I will definitely be recommending Tropical Traditions to anyone and everyone I know who is looking to try to eat healthier and live better. And even some people just looking to be healthier sometimes. If you are interested in giving this product a try then don't forget to get your entries in for my giveaway. I am sure that you will be pleasantly surprised with this company's products and services, as well as the quality of the food you create with it. Thank you for reading.

Collage It Pro review

       I recently got approved to test a program called Collage It Pro and write a review. I will also be able to offer a giveaway for a few lucky winners to get a copy of this great program. I have made a few sample collages to show you the quality of the layouts as well as the speed in which you can make these great collages. As a matter of fact the 4 different collages that I made for this review took me 15 minutes to make. Meaning that it took me less then 5 minutes a piece for these great picture collages of my family and my beautiful baby girl. I am very happy with this program and the ease of use. I think that even a novice should be able to figure this program out. It is very simple in it's layout and use. Collage It functions flawlessly with it's drag and drop and the ability to randomize not just the pictures but also the layout. Just tell it how many pictures you want to use and if you want a border, even if you want the images to be put on a kilter like the ones that I chose to make.
I don't know anyone who wouldn't love a program like this especially if you are into photography like I am. This program is even easy enough for your child to use. As long as you can use a mouse and know what file your pictures are in. You too can create an amazing collage in a matter of minutes. Don't believe me that it is this easy to use. Well why not give it a try. You can check it out at http://www.collageitfree.com/. If you want to get the full program though you will have to sign up for my giveaway. I will have 20 licenses for the pro version to be given out at the end of the giveaway. So get to it and best of luck to all on winning this amazing program and I hope that you have as much fun with it as I have. Good Luck.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. a Rafflecopter giveaway
