I know it is past midnight and I should not supposed to eat but, sometimes I have to break that "rule" and satisfy my cravings. Oh yeah, with a hot coffee and cream ... I have my feet lay on the ottoman ... such a relaxing moment. Let's chow (*v*) .

Perky Jerky: The Tastiest Jerky Ever

Few weeks ago, my husband bought a beef jerky and he told me that it was the best jerky he ever had for a long time. Nothing left for me to attest his claim (wink) so; I emailed the company if they could send me a sample of their products in exchange of an honest review. I got a positive response and got these in a package (check the photo below):

I was indeed lucky to have these free samples. My husband opened the package and started snacking on his favorite flavor, the beef jerky. It is very tender and truly delicious. It is marinade with 7 ingredients which includes Guarana. This plant is native in the Amazon basin but, common in Brazil. As a dietary supplement, guarana is an effective stimulant in fact; the seed contains twice the concentration of caffeine found in coffee beans. No wonder that my husband loves the taste and the flavor of beef perky Jerky.
I tasted the 2 amazing Perky Jerky products and I am thrilled to tell you that I love it. Perky Jerky has been Americas most talked about jerky! Their products, the ultra-premium beef jerky and the ultra-premium turkey jerky has so far the best tasting jerky’s I have ever tasted! Perky Jerky is proven to be low in fat, carbohydrates, calories and are made in all natural ingredients. I am very pleased to know that Perky Jerky does not contain MSG, nitrites and preservatives. Based on what I know, the product is marinade with several ingredients and includes a stimulant plant. I did a little bit of research about the plant which I mentioned above and found out that this plant has caffeine which as we all know is an effective stimulant. To be honest, this Guarana plant ingredient is nothing to be scared of in fact; this ingredient is commonly found in energy drinks! The food will actually serve as an energy source. It is rich in protein and taste absolutely wonderful so; you cannot really go wrong with that!

The Ultra-Premium Turkey Jerky is made from turkey breast. It is also marinade in all natural ingredients such as organic Worcestershire sauce, organic evaporated cane syrup, lemon juice and more. This is very tender, savory and tasty but does not over power you with a peppery taste. It also provides essential protein, and is non-fattening which actually suits my new healthy diet. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone.

A Glass of Cabernet Sauvignon and Prosciutto Cravings

The other day, I was feeling so sad ... hormone thing you know. When I checked the fridge, all of a sudden I craved for prosciutto, cheese and fruits. I kind' a like my cravings because I don't usually eat cheese for snacks. Oh, I love prosciutto and I can eat a quarter of a pound just snacking on it. If you love prosciutto but hate the price, I suggest you visit BJ's store. Their price is half from your neighborhood grocery store.

We have stocks of good wines in the house. We are not drinkers but, few bottles of red and white wines are not bad for after meals right? 

I felt good after a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon and snacking these delicious foodies. According to my friend this wine  is one of the world's most widely recognized red wine grape varieties in fact, one of his favorites. Well, a glass of wine is enough for me and this can last me a week you kinow (winky-wink). 

Do you like wine? Do you prefer red or white wine? A glass of wine is good for the body you know but, drink moderately. Thanks for stopping by.

Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® for Dogs

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Comfort Zone® products. All opinions are 100% mine.

I received a product from Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® about few weeks ago and I use it for our adorable cat Mimi. Prior to using it, I read all the information written on the box because I was curious on how it works.

I heard about pheromone way back in my biology class in college so; this word is no stranger to me. Pheromones are chemicals capable of acting outside the body of the secreting subject to impact the behavior of the receiving subject.

It has different kinds such as alarm pheromones, food trail pheromones, and many more that affects the behavior of the subject when triggered in fact, some vertebrates and plants communicate by using pheromones.

In connection to the product that I received, using Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® helps reduced the stress related behavior in dogs by mimicking their natural pheromones. It also helps the dogs calm and comfortable in their environment. Comfort Zone® with Feliway® is 95% effective at reducing the annoying scratching and urine markings for cats. Mimi evidently was relaxed the whole time after using it. Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® also helps reduced excessive chewing and barking, destructive digging, and house soiling for dogs.

At night, Mimi was fast asleep so soundly which was really good. Unlike before, she was just roaming inside the house scratching and it really measured my patience at the highest level. But, I love her so; thank goodness for Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.®, her restlessness was reduced.

Craving for Concord Grapes

I blame it on hormone change again LOL. I may be laughing but, it is true.PMS to perimenopause perhaps (oh no) and into menopause ( got a long way to go I hope ) , hormonal ups and downs can wreak havoc on a woman's life. Once or twice a month, I have migraines due to stress and fatigue but wait, how can it be? I stay at home, got no kids that take my time ... house is not that big to maintain... I seldom blog, as you can see updates are only few ... what's there to be stressed about? I leave my questions to my family doctor. "Amy, there are other reasons", you probably said this right now (wink) and you are right.

Well for now, my favorite fruit is Concord grapes. It satisfies my cravings and my migraine would disappear. Weird huh or it might not be. I only see the concord grapes in the produce section when fall season comes. It might be a seasonal fruit. See the picture above? It is different from the usual grapes that we have in the market all year round.

This type of grapes is used as table grapes, wine grapes and juice grapes. It is also used to make grape jelly, grape juice, grape-flavored soft drinks, and candy. Interesting! The Concord grape is dark blue (see the photos).  It is covered with a lighter-coloured "bloom" that can be easily rubbed off.

This type of grapes is called slip-skin variety because the skin is easily separated from the fruit. Most grapes that we buy in the produce section, we eat the whole fruit right? But with concord grapes, I only eat the juicy, sweet and aromatic fruit ... the skin, nope! I think I will head to the grocery's produce section now ... I am craving for concord grapes at this time. See yah! Thanks for stopping by.

Breakfast at the Restaurant in IKEA Home Store

It's been a while since we last visited IKEA Home Store. I miss dining in their restaurant before we head to shopping. My husband and I usually go there to unwind, eat and have a little shopping. That's always the plan but, we end up shopping for more and eat less LOL. IKEA has this FREE breakfast freebies on certain days and sometimes, we were able to avail it. The picture below is usually the free breakfast plate ... good food huh?

This is hubby's plate, biscuits and gravy. IKEA coffee is one of my favorites. Since we are members of IKEA Family Club, we can avail and enjoy free coffee or hot tea every time we visit the restaurant! Become a member today, it is FREE!

I usually do not take photos with people but, I just want to show you one section of the restaurant. The Industrial ceiling is cool huh?

The croissant is not my favorite but, it was good. Croissant is a buttery flaky viennoiserie bread roll which is named for its well-known crescent shape. Do you like it?

I love having breakfast in IKEA. Weekdays are the best time to shop in IKEA and early morning because the crowd is tolerable. We plan to go there next week and buy some accessories for the bathroom and living room. Thanks for stopping by. Check out my post tomorrow. Stay happy.
