Relish! Winners Announced



Winners of the Relish! 12 Month Subscription are:

Amanda: "I really like this concept. It would sure help a working mom :-) After our Christmas shopping adventure last night we grabbed Wendy's on the way home. It would have been nice to have one of the crock pot recipes from Relish done when we got home. "

Kimberly: WOW... how cool is this! I have never heard of this site before. Thanks for the information. I love some of the meals on the sample menu like Chicken Pizza and Slow Cooker Tuscan Pot Roast. YUMMM!!!!!Last night we went out to the local diner for dinner. I always cook (although boring meals - same ones week after week). The only reason why we did is because I got paid for a job I did (FINALLY!) and I have some pocket (FINALLY) and I wanted to treat my family out to eat. Thanks for a neat giveaway!"

Relish! Menu Planner & Giveaways!

Relish is a weekly menu planner aimed to help busy families put easy meals (with a gourmet twist) on the table every night. There is no fuss here. It’s an easy step by step process that you can do every weekend to prepare for a trip to the grocery store. You choose the entree and dessert meals that sound appealing and presto- your grocery list and menus are ready for you to rock and roll (and available to print out as a pdf to make life extra simple, too)! The ingredients needed for all recipes are separated into categories making it easy for you to move around the grocery store without forgetting something, which we all always do! The breakdown of ingredients uniquely identifies “what you may need but already have” which eliminates the possibility of buying double of something you already have in the pantry or refrigerator.

As a trendy new mommy, hoping to fit back into my “trendy jeans” one of these days, it is important to watch the fat and calorie intake during the day. With relish, every meal has the nutritional facts posted below the menu. The recipes provided by Relish! keep health conscious moms right on track, utilizing fresh, healthy ingredients. My first weeks’ menus ranged from 200 to 415 delicious calories. It can be said that my time using Relish! meals was full of flavorful meals that even my picky-eater husband enjoyed.

It is a beautiful thing to be able to have HEALTHY meals planned each week for my family without worrying about searching through cook books and forgetting essential ingredients. For $7 dollars a month, this weekly menu planner plus monthly freezer menus and more is great to settle any hungry household.

I feel like a GOOD mom and wife now that I am using Relish! Forget boring grilled chicken with canned peas, this menu planner brings “spice and simplicity” back to the kitchen.

**To recognize Relish! as a favorite of Trendy Mommy, we are having a GIVEAWAY!

Two Trendy Mommy readers will receive a 12 month subscription to Relish! with silcone cooking tongs from Crate & Barrel, too! In order to enter, you need to visit, check out the demos, and sample the menus. Then, leave a comment here about what you had for dinner last night and why this would be a great tool for you! Contest ends December 22nd at midnight - winner will be announced on

So, rejuvenate your Trendy Kitchen and check out the Relish! website for more information.

Playdate NYC features hand designed clothing for trendy kids. The outfits are made with 100% of the softest cotton by American Apparel, while the designs are hand sewn by Playdate NYC designers. They carry everything from onesies and shirts, to yoga pants and hats. 

The patterns range from traditional with a monogram letter to unique with ballet slippers or spiders. I love the the stitching on all of the garments as it shows that these play clothes are not mass produced, but uniquely created for your baby or toddler. The appliques really pop in photographs, too. These shirts would be great for casual portraits!

My son has very sensitive skin, therefore I have to be careful what kind of materials I put him in. Most organic play ware are muted and dull in color.

Holiday Gift Idea #2: 3D Virtual World

Are you still looking for some great gifts to give this holiday season? We recently had the opportunity to review the new 3D Virtual World: My First Adventure by JumpStart. Although the ages posted on the box are 3-5, our 2 and a half year old daughter absolutely loved playing this game. She made her own little character and designed her own house (with mommy's help of course). She really does love playing in this virtual neighborhood. As a mom - we love that the little games are teaching her things as well as being fun - it truly is adventure based learning.

Jump Start has something for all ages - they have The Legend of Grizzly McGuffin for ages 4-6, and Trouble in Town for ages 5-7, and Quest for the Color Meister for ages 6-8 as well as Math Blaster for ages 6-12, and many many more. So check them out if you're looking for some fun learning adventure based games for your little one.

JumpStart is sold in all your favorite retailers including Target, Best Buy, ToysRUs, WalMart, Costco, Office Depot @ MSRP $19.99

Yummy Goodness!

We don't review food much here on The Trendy Mommy - but recently we received some awesome granola cereal and breakfast bars from Cascadian Farm and we must say that their new Dark Chocolate Almond Granola Cereal is YUMMY! Cacadian Farm takes select chunks of dark chocolate and bakes them into whole grain oats, wheat and barley and crisp rice clusters to form DELICIOUS granola clusters. And then they throw in some sliced almonds and loose granola bits to make even more tasty. They also suggest sprinkling a few clusters on top of your favorite yogurt. There are about 8 servings in each box and a box retails for around $4.59 and is available in the natural/organic cereal section of your favorite grocer.

We also tried out their new Sweet & Salty Chewy Granola Bars --- again...YUM! They have launched two options (mixed nut and peanut pretzel). We tasted the peanut pretzel and it was just as described --- sweet and salty. The bottom of each bar has just the right amount of chocolate to balance out the pretzel. These are available in the natural/organic granola bar section of your grocer and retail for around $4.39 (5 bars).
