RevaBlend: Blending On The Go Review

RevaBlend: Blending On The Go Review + Giveaway

One of my favorite treats is a banana smoothie or shake. The problem with this is that they can be a bite labor intensive and consistency is important.

The other thing that I have been doing recently is blending my eggs for my omelets and making my own salad dressings. I have discovered that my creations can be much tastier than the items that I can buy in the store.

The problem I encounter often is that my blender is big, and not the most compact or convenient. When I recently saw RevaBlend – Blending On The Go the first thing I noticed was that did not rely on electricity and has its own contained blades, I wondered it it would be easier then the current blender I was using. .

Dawn Ultra: Elite Super Premium Gloves Review

Dawn Ultra: Elite Super Premium Gloves Review & Giveaway

As a crafter my hands get abused constantly, despite mt best efforts to keep them safe.

When I work on projects I often use disposable gloves, which due to the flimsy nature, only allows for one use. I always reflect on what a waste this is, and always think I should invest in a more permanent pair for painting. When I saw that Dawn Ultra had a pair of gloves I was curious if a permanent pair really was the right idea.

Homemade Cleaners Book Review

Homemade Cleaners: Quick-and-Easy, Toxic-Free Recipes to Replace Your Kitchen Cleaner, Bathroom, Disinfectant, Laundry Detergent, Bleach, Bug Killer, Air Freshener and More… Review and Giveaway

Homemade CleanersWe are a cat household, and we are a cat household that allows the cats almost anywhere in the house that their little paws can take them. Due to our somewhat liberal, and at times foolish, rules we hate using harsh chemicals to clean the surfaces that we share with the cats.

I never really had a real awareness of the harsh chemicals until I realized that the products were transferring onto the cats paws and how incredibly deadly this can be for them. I decided that I would make my home, and surfaces, a safer environment for all breathing creatures. I have read over the years that by using certain essential oils and baking soda, borax or any of the other natural ingredients available you can create some amazing cleaners.

Naturally, when I had the opportunity to review and giveaway a book that covered this concern, I had to accept. I received for review and giveaway a copy of Homemade Cleaners Quick-and-Easy, Toxic-Free Recipes to Replace Your Kitchen Cleaner, Bathroom, Disinfectant, Laundry Detergent, Bleach, Bug Killer, Air Freshener and More… by Mandy O’Brien and Dionna Ford.

Great Plate Holiday 2015 Giveaway!!

The Great Plate Holiday 2015 Giveaway!!!

Great Plate Red and Green Plates in useBack in April I had the opportunity to review Great Plate and see just how durable and how versatile they were (previous review here). I mentioned that to be able to have my food and drink near me on the couch and not spill due to cats jumping down was a bonus and a great feature of the Great Plate. It is 7 months later and the plates look brand new, despite being used every week or two. The color is just as vibrant and the plate is just as level as it was then – it is our “go-to” plate for chips and guacamole

Ozeri Green Earth Pan Review

Ozeri – Green Earth Pan Review and Giveaway

Ozeri Green Earth PanI have discovered as I have been learning to cook that it is not preferable to cook everything in the same pan, despite the ease of dishes with this scenario. Recently we received a very belated housewarming gift (over 3 years later) of an entire set of pots and pans. This set included a small pan, and a large as well as 3 pots ranging in size from super small to spaghetti size, as well as included lids. This is the only official “set” we have and other pans and pots are a Hodge-podge mix of hand me downs.

Now, I have discovered as I have been learning to cook that it is not preferable to cook everything in the same pan, despite the ease of dishes with this scenario. The need has finally arisen that we need more pans as the cooking competence level increases in this house.

Mint-X: Rodent Repellent Trash Bags Review

Let me start by saying that the products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Mint-X. This post may have affiliate links but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are my own.

Mint-X: Rodent Repellent Trash Bags Review and Giveaway

Mint-X Rodent Repellent Trash BagsWe here at DealsAmongUs are located on the coast. This has its advantages and it’s disadvantages. The advantages are as numerous as they are magical and range from being only 1/4 mile from the beach, being smack dab in the middle of some of the best carne asada burritos anywhere and always being walking distance from the ocean sunsets.

The disadvantages are really more like huge disturbances in everyday life. One of the biggest disadvantages is that our area gets raccoon’s and possum’s. These little friends come to our porch at night, peak the Muggles interests, and hunt for food as well as shelter of any kind. Often times they strike out, but have hit pay-dirt in the form of trash bags that get left until the morning.

Now this does not occur utterly often, but if it is late and really dark then the trash will get left until the morning. These night are generally few and far between, and make me hesitant to wake up (for fear of a mess that we will be forced to pick-up). I am happy to say that I may have found my solution to the worry I feel leaving the trash out overnight: Mint-X Rodent Repellent Trash Bags.
