I am finally starting to get some sponsors willing to send me products for a product review! I've been working on this for quite awhile now so I'm glad it's finally taking hold.

I don't receive any money compensation for a product review but I do get a free product to use and try out in order to do the review properly.

OMG AT&T kept 10 years worth of emails on their servers for me 58,000 unwanted emails to Delete Diabetic Snacker

I've been in computer nightmare hell for the last 2 days! My computer got a new virus that my go to tech nerd had not even ever seen before and we finally had to erase everything wipe it clean and reinstall windows xp to get the pc to work at all! What a mess this is!! We saved everything we could of course but I've lost hundreds of saved email messages that I have been working on. Some were very important sponsor's emails accepting me to host a giveaway and product reviews for them. I am totally devasted by this computer catastraphe!!

I have no way of knowing who some of the contacts, email messages were! So if you've emailed in the last week please email me again so I can get this mess straightened out. Another down side is all my messages from outlook express which I had used daily and kept constantly updated with only new emails; they decided to keep a copy of all my emails on their servers. I'm talking for the past 12 years!! Yes, when I had to login to my account to try to get my emails I found 58,000!! waiting emails!! OMG!! does not even begin to say what I feel about this mess!!

Gues what? There is no way I can figure out after hours of trying; how to delete all these old saved messages! You can only do 200 at a time by their website which will take forever to delte!! Also I can't actually read any new emails if they did come thru at the moment because yeah, there's not enough memory it says! OMG I hate AT&T right now so bad!! 58,000 messages to delete!! How could a company be this carefless to save every single message on their servers for you for 10 years?!!! I just don't get it.

I will be trying to sort this mess out. I only hope I didn't win any new giveaways since it seems as if I won't be able to get that email. If anyone knows a trick to deleting more than the maximun setting of 200 emails at a time please let me know! I would be eternally grateful to you. I'm sorry if I sound like I'm begging but yes I am begging for help. This is just ridculus!!! I have workeed so hard on some of those pitches and emails it's just terrible to think it's all lost forever. sons & I also have an eBay Store so drop by anytime!!


New quick snack idea diabetic friendly Muffin Mix Mini Pancakes

Hmm, I just posted an article and it didn't take for some reason I have a blank article! Never had that happen before! So I guess I'll write it again!

This morning at one of my many snack times I wanted a muffin for some reason. I looked in the pantry and found a strawberry muffin mix small package. It said it made 5 muffins which didn't seem like it would be worth turning the oven on for.

So I mixed it up with the 1/2 cup of milk it called for and then I thought; Why not add some healthy oats to it? So I added 1 cup of quick cooking oats to the batter. I sprayed a skillet with nonstick cooking spray and put in some dollops of batter. They fried up quite nicely like mini pancakes.

The taste was excellent and I didn't heat the whole house up with a 350 degree oven for a half an hour! Win win situation since they tasted great!

Have you ever used a muffin mix to make pancakes?


A nice steak always makes a great friday dinner

Tonight we had a wonderful dinner for a Friday to remember. Steak dinner with all the fixin's. My son did all the cooking while I put my feet up on the couch and watched Nascar qualifying. The steaks couldn't have been better if we'd went to Outback Steakhouse and paid a huge amount of money for them.

He's got his seasoning down for the steaks just right and we've switched over to cast iron skillets to cook them in. That way they get that nice brown crusty char to them and they just make you wish you had another bite when you're down to the last piece. They were tender and juicy and well seasoned.

My dinner:

4oz steak
green beans
small baked potato
1tsp margarine
1 slice whole wheat garlic toast homemade

Overall I'd give this meal a definite A+, we were celebrating my youngest son going back to work this week after a long hiatus. A good steak dinner at the end of a hectic back to work week is a must in this house. I'm just glad I'm not the one who has to be working outside the house anymore and now that I think about it, it is quite relaxing to rest on the couch while someone cooks for you. I could get used to this even though I really miss cooking like I used to do.
