Talenti Obsession

Hello all,

Recently I have been seeing Talenti’s Gelato everywhere……so I read the ingredients. I was so happy that it contained ingredients that I can identify. I really TRY to stay away from foods with chemical addditives. Now back to this GELATOOOOOO…..can you hear me singing in true happiness. I must say I am truly obsessed and need a restraining order when it comes to Talenti’s Gelato…lol. They have such an amazing variety, how is a woman to decide which to try first……This was a true dilemma. Finally, after much contemplating and shivering a decision was reached………… and the winner was…….Southern Pecan since it’s one of my favorite flavors…..and for the kids I thought I would surprise them with Caramel Cookie Crunch.

All I have to say is that these were Very Good Choices.

My first spoonful of the Southern Butter Pecan…….transported me back to my childhood. This reminded me of what Butter Pecan Ice Cream used to taste like. I love this Gelato flavor it’s perfection.

Caramel Cookie Crunch- this is excellent and is now highly requested in this household. I get text messages reminding me to put it on the grocery list. Followed by text messages reminding me not to forget it while I am grocery shopping….lol.

So now we’re officially addicted so the only solution was to broaden our horizon and try more flavors.


So here’s what happened/what we have tried so far…..

Double Dark Chocolate: This was pretty good….not a must have.

Coffee Chocolate Chip: Love it!!!

Carribean Coconut: Amazing you’re transported to the Carribean.

Chocolate Chip : Very Good.

Banana Chocolate Swirl: So good the perfect banana and chocolate blend.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup: This was good but would love more of that traditional peanut butter cup taste.

Alphonso Mango: Disappointing

Carmel Apple Pie: This is AMAZING. It taste like your eating apple pie with a scoop of Vanilla Ice cream on top.

Fudge Brownie: Very decedent….A chocoholic’s dream come true.

Belgium Milk Chocolate: Simply divine


I will update my list as we try new flavors. One thing I love about this Gelato is that 2 tablespoons really satisfies your sweet craving. It’s such a well made product with identifiable ingredients. That’s my take on it. If you have given Talenti a try what did you think of it and will a restraining order be needed to resist, it’s goodness….lol????

Until Next Time,

Sewloveable ☺


On the Hunt

Hello all,


I wanted to share a recent find.  I have been on the hunt for the past year.  For a good quality lotion.  My criteria simple….. as few chemicals as possible, great price and long lasting moisture.  Well, after a year of trying so many I have FINALLY found one that meets my needs!!! J.R. Watkins Hand & Body Lotion in Vanilla. Since I was so impressed I had to share it with you.

I found the lotion at an unexpected place TJ MAXX .  Who knew that while shopping for shoes and clothes……I would find this GEM.  I am happy that I did and the best part……the price $5.99 for an 11 oz. bottle.  I like this product because it really moisturizes the skin without it feeling greasy, a little goes a long way and it’s half the price of other lotions with similar ingredients, that I have tried and been disappointed with.

The lotion comes in a variety of fragrances online that you are not guaranteed to get in store.  It cost more but at least you have more options available.  So all in all I am very satisfied with my latest find/purchase.

I would love to know what store bought lotion do you use? With minimal to no chemicals, moisturizes well, long lasting moisture, with a great price.


Until Next Time,



Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil Cooking Spray

Hello all,

On a recent grocery shopping trip I stumbled upon Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil Cooking Spray.  I haven’t used a cooking spray in a long time and since my Misto no longer works……I thought I would give it a try. This cooking spray has pretty decent ingredients as far as cooking sprays go. So I had to try. I love baking and cooking with this spray. It doesn’t alter the taste of my food in any way. Works great on sweet and savory food. So if you happen to see it in the store, I certainly think it’s worth trying out.  If you use or can recommend a good cooking spray with minimal chemicals an additives please share. I am always looking to try new things.


Until Next Time,
