Knot Genie Review & Giveaway – Ends 8/23/12

This Giveaway is done by SaraLee’s Deals Steals & Giveaways

The Knot Genie™ Detangling Brush was created for every mom that has endured
the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child’s
hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically
slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the
Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you’ll be amazed by the ease of
brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You’ve
wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted.
 Before using the Knot Genie
As you can see the Knot Genie works on dry or wet hair. After a bath my friend used this on her daughters hair without using conditioner and was amazed at how well it works. Her daughter didn’t scream out at all and now wants her hair brushed all the time with the Knot Genie. Now that’s saying something when a child prefers the Knot Genie over any other brush.  Thanks to my good friend and her daughter for the pics. I am happy that I was able to share this review item with you.
Now for the giveaway: One lucky
person will win a
Knot Genie (Shown Above). This is open to US and ends 8/23/12 @ 11:59 pm est.  Most people who have a little girl understand how difficult a hairbrushing session can be.  This amazing tool can put an end to those tears!
To enter, simply do the tasks on the Rafflecopter widget below, and you’re set to have a chance to win!

Cranberry Cherry Banana Bread
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This recipe makes a moist and delicious banana bread with some dried cranberries and cherries thrown in for a little extra fun. It's fabulous even without the fruit, so try it both ways!
  • 4 overripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • ¼ cup dried cherries (optional)
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set Aside.
  3. Cream sugar and butter.
  4. Add slightly beaten eggs.
  5. Add bananas and mix well.
  6. Stir in sifted ingredients.
  7. Fold in nuts, cherries, and berries.
  8. Bake in a greased loaf pan for up to 1 hour.
I start checking mine for doneness at 45 minutes. The fourth banana really makes this moist, so keep this in mind when checking. If you don't have or can't find dried cherries, you can substitute more dried cranberries.
