Vegetable Spiral Slicer Review September 6, 2016

I have always wanted to try a spiralizer. So I tried the 4 Blade Vegetable Spiral Slicer. I was actually quite impressed. I made a zucchini “pasta”. It was yum. I like zucchini anyway but this made it into a pasta that I saute in olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Then I made a healthified Alfredo sauce. I ended up eating the whole zucchini. I can’t wait to try it on other veggies.

25 PIECE Russian Icing Piping Tips Review August 15, 2016

Filed under: Amazon,Review — admin @ 9:20 am


14052327_638780292966704_864532347_nThe 25 PIECE Russian Icing Piping Tips  wasn’t to bad. I did like all the tips it came with and the reusable bag, but I had an issue using the bag. I’m not sure if it’s the frosting I used or what, but it didn’t come out right. I may try a different frosting the next time around when I’m baking more in the fall and winter. I will post any updates if that was the issue or not.

Innovating By Design Watercolor Pencils Review August 15, 2016

Filed under: Amazon,Coloring Pages,Review — admin @ 8:45 am


IMG_20160813_111706259 Now who doesn’t like to color? I know I love it. It’s so relaxing. Have you tried watercolor pencils? I never did and always wanted to try it. I love it. I used the Artist Grade Watercolor Pencils, Set of 48 Vibrant Colors from Innovating by Design and they color so nicely. I’m currently still working on my page and being a single parent of a teenage son I don’t get as much downtime as I want.

That’s what I have so far. From left to right: Before coloring, after just the pencil, and then finally after I used the water color brush on it.

When I’m done I will post the final product.

Circuit Maze Board Game Review August 5, 2016

Filed under: Amazon,Kids,Review — admin @ 3:41 pm


0617161720When I got the Circuit Maze Board Game I didn’t know what to think, but when my son started playing 0617161720awith it he loved it. He went though the cards and even made up his own logic for me to solve. There needs to be more games like this. You can literally just sit for hours and do so many different combinations. I have always loved games to make you think. Better then just sitting in front of the T.V., computer, video games, tablet or any other electronics they have out. If you have a kid that is logical or your logical yourself, then I would recommend this game.

Maestro of Comfort ★Eco-friendly Fruit & Vegetable Tools Set Review August 5, 2016

Filed under: Amazon,Review — admin @ 2:05 pm


13694895_1724613554472804_1158935177_n I have nothing bad to say about the Watermelon Slicer Corer & Server Tongs . We love melon is the house. This made is simple and fast. I usually get the small watermelon and it went through great. So much easier then the How to easily cut a watermelon. That doesn’t work and I get frustrated. If you like easy I would consider getting this.

Who else will be watching the Olympics starting tonight? I usually try, but this year I did download the app on my Fire TV so if I miss it I can still watch it. Not the same live but I will still be able to. Here is a list of pretty cool craft ideas that I have found.
