Tummy Drops Review

This is a sponsored post.

Tummy Drops are an all-natural, healthy, medication-free way to relieve tummy troubles. They’re made with just four simple plant-based ingredients including ginger and peppermint. What sets this tasty remedy apart from other “natural” tummy aids is its creator, a Board-Certified Gastrointestinal Physician, making Tummy Drops a trusted source of relief.

I love that I know what’s in my tummy drops! I really wish these were available when I was pregnant and hunting everywhere for ginger chews or ginger drops that would help with my morning sickness.

That said, I’m always on the lookout for a more natural product for helping with the occasional stomach upset or when something just isn’t sitting right.

I was quite excited to be able to try these out. And, I LOVE that they sent me basically 1 of everything!

When I first received these I thought that the tins were going to be hard candies and the bags were chewables. But, nope, they’re all hard candies. Not a problem for me, but I don’t really see any difference in the products other than how they’re packaged.

So far I’ve tried a couple of the ginger and one of the peppermint. They’re all quite tasty. The ginger is strong – like all ginger is, but it’s not overpowering. And these tummy drops are just sweet enough that they’re actually quite tasty.

Compared to other ginger products that I’ve tried in the past, they’re actually delicious!

Definitely something that’s nice to keep on hand! They’re tasty, easy to keep in my purse, and do a great job of settling my stomach when something isn’t quite right.

Ginger Cookies


My very favorite holiday recipe. I’ve made these for years and I never get tired of them.

Ginger Cookies
2 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 Tbsp. sugar

Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl, combine flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Gradually add the 1 cup sugar, beating on low speed until fluffy. Add the egg and molasses; beat well. Using a wooden spoon, stir flour mixture into egg mixture.

Shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll balls in the 2 Tbsp sugar. Place about 2 1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake about 10 minutes.

Makes 24.

Graham Cracker Houses

My husband had a great Christmas idea four years ago. This is the fourth year we’ve done it and we always have a blast! Instead of gingerbread houses – which are a lot of work – we make graham cracker houses.

We invite a bunch of friends over and make graham cracker houses. This year, I assembled the houses earlier in the day so they were set before the party and kids trying to put candy on them. It worked out really well.

Graham cracker houses are really easy, and a great holiday party idea if you have kids (or if you just like playing with candy and icing)

My house. I actually did this the day after the party before I cleaned everything up. The trick to a good house (in my opinion) is the icing. It’s just powdered sugar and water, and you want it to be thick enough that it doesn’t run but thin enough that you can pipe it. I put my icing in a plastic bag, cut a hole in the end, (a very tiny hole) and pipe the icing out so I have good control over where it goes.

Side of my house

My 3yr old’s “house”. It looks like a tent to me. She made two other houses as well. The party this year was so much fun for her and her little friends! I just handed them bowls of icing with spoons in them, piles of candy, and let them have at it.

And, a melting house. This batch of icing was a tad thin and ended up slipping but I think it looks pretty cool!

And, as a plus, these houses are just as much fun to eat as they are to make!
