Marshmallow Roasting Forks – Review

admin / September 26, 2016

Now who doesn’t like making S’mores? I know I love them. The chocolate and marshmallow. What I don’t like is those short sticks. I always worried when my son was younger. Afraid of burning himself. Who else? Well the Marshmallow Roasting Sticks are great.  I haven’t seen anything like them. Each stick has a different color which in neat. They also…

Vegetable Spiral Slicer Review

admin / 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…

25 PIECE Russian Icing Piping Tips Review

admin / August 15, 2016

The 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…

Circuit Maze Board Game Review

When I got the Circuit Maze Board Game I didn’t know what to think, but when my son started playing with 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…

IceWabanga Ice Pop Molds Review

I just recently got these IceWabanga Ice Pop Molds. They are amazing. I have to say they are the best molds I have used and I’ve gotten a couple different ones. I made the type of pops I wanted. I did a sorta orange creamsicle. I just mixed a little of my vanilla greek yogurt with some orange juice. I…

Gel Pens Review

I absolutely loved the Gel Pens Set, 48 Pack by Chalko – Non-Toxic, Water Resistant, Ink Pen Set.  I didn’t use them for coloring that I saw some people do. It’s not my tool of choice when I color. I used them while writing myself notes, at work, lists, etc. They include: CLASSIC – red, green, black, & blue. PASTEL –…

Chefast Herb Scissors Set Review

I have always wanted to try something like this. Cutting fresh herbs with a knife has always frustrated me so I always avoided them. The Chefast Herb Scissors Set – Premium Kitchen Shears with 5 Stainless Steel Blades – Multipurpose Herb Bags, Safety Cover with Cleaning Comb, Herbs eBook, and Stylish Box Included are amazing. When I was making Swedish meatballs…

Day Trips in Upstate New York

Since my son has become a teenager, it has become harder to find affordable things to do during the summer. He does go to a summer camp, but it’s only a few hours a day. Plus it’s pricey. So I’ve been trying to come up with some ideas for close trips. Every time I put in New York it always…

Watermelon Slicer

What can I say bad about the Premium Watermelon Slicer? Nothing really.  It was so easy to use. So much better then the “how to cut a watermelon” posts I’ve seen. All I did was cut my watermelon in half, I used the small one, and started cutting. I think it only took me 10 minutes, yes I said 10…
