Tacky Box

~This post was not written by Accidentally Domesticated.~ I am posting to help promote a friend's Giveaway from her blog.



Give a Child the Gift of Kindness This Holiday Season giveaway

Buy the Award Winning 32-page Margo’s (or Max’s) Magnificent Choice and receive a free Tacky Box
DALLAS, TEXAS — Give a child the gift of kindness this holiday season with their own Tacky Box Set, and check off one – or more – names from your holiday shopping list. November 28 through December 20, buy the Silver Nautilus Award-winning, 32-page Margo’s (or Max’s) Magnificent Choice for $19.99 plus shipping and the Tacky Box ($9.99 retail) is free.

This is one gift sure to make an impression on the child’s life and those around them. The Tacky Box Set helps parents encourage a message of respect and goodness to children at an impressionable age, both words and deeds while the child has fun. Children need guidance in developing the ability to self-police acceptable and non-acceptable words and behaviors.

How it works:
STEP ONE: Cuddle up with your child and spend 10 minutes reading the story of Margo’s (or Max’s) Magnificent Choice 

STEP TWO: Compare our world to the jungle and explain to your child that he or she will hear and see all kinds of tacky words and behavior. Encourage your child to proactively decide how to respond when the inevitable occurs. Will he or she choose to be tacky or be kind like the monkey in the story? 

STEP THREE: After your child makes his or her own magnificent choice, give a high five just like the wise old owl and present your child with an authentic Tacky Box to decorate. 

STEP FOUR: Display the decorated Tacky Box prominently in your home. Have your child use the tablet to write down any tacky words (or behavior) he or she uses or witnesses and lock the piece of paper in the Tacky Box. The act of writing down the word or action and placing it in the box symbolizes your child’s commitment to remove tacky words from the heart and mind. 

STEP FIVE: Enjoy watching your child self-monitor words and behavior and set an example for others! And get ready for the ripple effect.
For Chris Kent Phelps, inventor of Tacky Box Set and co-author of Margo’s Magnificent Choice, Winner of the 2014 Silver Nautilus Award, the idea for Tacky Box was the result of an experience with her then five-year-old daughter. She and her mother, Cindy Kent, wrote the story to accompany the box, and Kent – a professional artist – illustrated it.

Phelps says, “Our children are exposed to many things beyond our control when they’re away
from us, so it’s our responsibility to prepare them to handle the bad or tacky words and actions they will hear and see. As part of our ongoing mission to make the world a kinder place, we want to help parents arm their children with this fun educational tool. With the holiday offer, we hope it will allow more parents, family and friends to get the book and Tacky Box for each special child in their lives.”
According to The Children’s Book Review, Margo’s Magnificent Choice “…is a well-written story that teaches kids about the power of words and the impact of making good choices. When combined with a Tacky Box, the story makes a very effective and hands-on parenting tool and proves that learning about kindness can be very fun.”
Margo’s (or Max’s) Magnificent Choice is available for purchase at for $19.99 plus shipping. Each book ordered will come with a free authentic Tacky Box ($9.99 retail) and a notepad illustrated with monkeys to use for writing down tacky words and behavior.

Turkeys on my Porch.. Say WHAT?

I have a it old a wild life problem. I live nears woods ana main road. My neighbors through the woods believe the deer population is dwindling( which it IS NOT in Maryland) and feed 30-50 deer every day a 5:00pm.  They complain about my dog that doesn't bark much because she scares the deer away... Etc..

I am not anti wildlife, but I do not want Turkey's on my front porch and I would prefer deer to stay further away from my home due to Lyme disease that is carried by deer ticks. As I have two small children.  This is why I agreed to review Predator Scare Guard Tap.

So far so go! I haven't had a turkey on my porch in awhile!

Limoncello Recipe, or Orangecello, Limecello, etc...

Limoncello Recipe, or Orangecello, Limecello, etc... A homemade Christmas gift your friends will actually use and appreciate. I am Italian, I don't like most alcohol, but I DO like Limoncella. It is an easy homemade gift to give your friends, you look fancy and they aren't stuck with 20 fruitcakes, jams or some other homemade item that people only seem to think others need. I don't know how to do things in small amounts, that just isn't me.

  1. Zest from 40 Lemons
  2. 1 gallon grain alcohol or Everclear. Use Vodka if your state doesn't trust you with grain

Let the Lemon Peels soak in vodka for 40 to 80 days. You can do as little as 4 days, but the longer you let it sit the better.

After 40 days have passed make a simple syrup. The amount of water and sugar you use depends on how strong you like your alcohol. My father got my bridesmaids drunk on this before my reception. They didn't drink much... So be careful!

Basic Simple Syrup

1. 4 cups sugar
2. 5 cups water

Use this ration as you determine how strong you want your Limoncella

  • Boil the sugar to water ratio for  5-7 minutes
  • Remove from heat and let cool
  • Mix the Lemon Mixture with the simple syrup 
  • Let rest for another 40 days 
After the Limoncella has rested for 40 days  strain and discard the lemon zests.

Then bottle in individual containers. Mason jars or use glass soda bottles for smaller sized gifts. 

Store in the Freezer for best tasting results.

*With the actual lemons squeeze with a good juicer and freeze in ice cube trays for lemonade
 or recipes.

Gurin Electric Compact Dehumidifier Review

This took me a bit longer to review as I wanted to make sure it actually worked well. I have it set up in my Master Bathroom as it is the bathroom we use the most. It is small and very quiet. It doesn't fill up fast but it does do the job intended.

If you have a small space like a laundry room, bathroom or college dorm room this little machine is ideal! I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

BPA Free Stemless Wine Glasses Review

BPA Free Stemless Wine Glasses Review 

              Great for the College kid on your gift list! 

 *The company states they are dishwasher safe, but to use a non heated cycle. My dishwasher does not give that option and I do not believe they are indeed dishwasher safe. 

Please note. I STILL haven't figured out what to do for a back splash in my kitchen. that is not dirty, but where I tore horrible wallpaper off the walls.

The classes are a decent size, great for putting apple juice in with kids that want to feel grown up, drunken college students pretending to be klassy, or in laws that get a little wild.

Jiva Organics USDA Organic Garam Masala Review

Jiva Organics USDA Organics sent me  Garam Masala  to Review. I have NEVER cooked with Garam Masala which made me VERY nervous.

 According to Wikipedia "Garam masala (from Hindi: गरम मसाला, garam ("hot") and masala (a mixture of spices)) is a blend of ground spices common in North Indian and other South Asian cuisines.[1] It is used alone or with other seasonings. The word garam refers to "heat" in the Ayurvedic sense of the word, meaning "to heat the body" as these spices, in the Ayurvedic system of medicine, elevate body temperature."

This scared me so I turned to my FAVORITE website to get ideas for dinner.

Look at how many family friendly recipes came up in my search!

 I picked a simple Chicken Garam Masala found here. It looks easy!

It comes in a nice resealable bag too!

 Look at how few ingredients!
Just put a little olive oil in the pan. 
 Then some chicken.
 Green onions or dried chives

 Fresh tomatoes

 Add the seasonings.

And you have a gourmet meal!

Braciola De Manzo

I confess. I never made Braciola until today, but people always thought I could make Braciola. When we had guest I would go to the local Italian store and buy it pre-made and pretend that I was the person that cooked amazing Braciola. So hopefully my inlaws aren't reading this blog, because I did that pretty often before we moved away from the amazing Italian store. Braciola, Braciole or whatever else you decide to call it is simply rolled thin round steak stuffed with bread crumbs,cheese, eggs, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper.

  • *1 1/2 pounds thin beef steak or top round steak
  • *1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • * 2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • *1 Large Egg
  • * 2 teaspoons parsley
  • * 1 Clove garlic
  • *1/2 teaspoon salt
  • *1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • *1/2 cup olive oil
  • * 1 jar sauce or tomatoes ( if using tomato puree add 1 can tomato paste)

How to Cook

  • Mix the breadcrumbs, parsley, egg, cheese and garlic together in a bowl.
  •  I was sent an awesome Garlic Press set from Alpha Grillers . It made it so EASY to get small pieces of garlic for the stuffing and to peel the garlic to simmer in the sauce!
  • Spread the steak out on a cutting board and spread filling on it thin.

  • Roll the filled beef tight and secure with butchers twine or toothpicks.

  • Brown in 1/2 cup olive oil.

  • After browned add 1 jar sauce or 1 cup tomato puree and 1 can tomato paste.

  • Simmer in sauce for two and half hours
