Cooking is something that I really enjoy doing and I know that there are certain kitchen tools that every cook needs to have. One is a food thermometer. It's so important to make sure that your foods are cooked properly and to the correct temperature so that you don't get sick.

I recently received the Eat Smart Precision Pro Food Thermometer for review purposes. I have tried other Eat Smart products in the past and have always been happy with those so I was certain this would be no different.

Once I opened the package up, I immediately noticed some great features:

-Sleek black design
-Belt clip
-Large display with backlight
-Good sized control buttons
-A list of the perfect temperatures for meats right on the thermometer
- 5 second response time
-Anti-microbial case and sleeve
-2 year limited…

I recently received the Gonex 80L Foldable Travel Duffle Bag for review. I don't travel a whole lot but when I do, I don't have any actual luggage to do so. I have usually resorted to using a large tote bag, filling it to the brim and hoping everything I would need would fit inside. I usually ended up with not taking things I really needed or sparing things I wanted to take because I didn't have the room in the bag.

I didn't quite know what to expect before this duffle bag arrived. I chose the Rose Red color and thought it would be your standard duffle bag. just in a pretty pink color. I was very wrong! This bag is MASSIVE and very well made. The fabric is lightweight, the zippers and straps are made extremely well. There is a pocket on the outside end and 2 pockets on the outside sid…

I recently received the PAPAYAY® Waterproof and Wireless Doorbell for review. While I live in an apartment that already has a doorbell, the buzz/ring of it is totally annoying. The idea of the PAPAYAY® sounded great. It's wireless, it's waterproof AND it has over 50 different chimes to choose from.




When it arrived, I took everything out of the box and started to read the booklet that came along with it. Set up was easy peasy. There are the 2 parts. Plug in the receiver into an electrical outlet and place the transmitter where you would like to use it. This could be outside to use as a standard doorbell or any number of other uses. It's basically set up after pressing a button.



It has over 50 different chimes to choose from. I love this so much! Different moods or days will call for diffe…

It's that time again. You know, the back to school time of year! It's the same thing every year. Once we hit the back to school time, the rest of the year just flies by. Soon it will be Halloween, then the holidays! It will creep up on us like it always does. It may only be August still but once school starts for the kids, the days fly and boom, the holidays!

I am always on the hunt for healthier snacks for my daughter. I don't like that so many snacks out there are loaded with all kinds of dyes, preservatives and the like. However, I have also noticed that many of the healthier snacks without all of those things, also don't usually taste very good. So what's a mom to do?

I was recently contacted by the great folks at Pirate's Booty to see if myself and my daughter would be interested in trying their product. I was very interested in trying it. In fact, I had come very close to purchasing Pirate's Booty at the stores a couple of times but just never did.



Pirate's Booty is a healthier snack choice that is gluten free, contains 0 grams of Trans Fats per serving, has no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, are baked and contain o…

National Grandparents Day is right around the corner on September 11th. Mark your calendars and check out Gourmet Gift Baskets for the perfect gift for your favorite Grandma and/or Grandpa!

Gourmet Gift Baskets has a ton of things to choose from including the Grandparents Day Gift Basket, the Wine Lovers Gift Basket for Grandparents and 25 varieties of Cheesecakes, no matter what their taste is.

I was offered to chance to try one of their cheesecakes and let me tell you that choosing a flavor was so difficult. They all sounded and looked so good! Flavors such as Banana Cream, New York, Pumpkin, Cherry Almond and the list goes on. I finally decided on the New York Strawberry Topped Cheesecake.

Cheesecake is one of my most favorite dessert type items and I thought the New York Strawberry Topped would be a good choice. It wa…

Summer time has meant a break for the kids and for us parents. Many children go to Summer camps or other lengthy trips away from home. While kids will certainly enjoy their time away at camp, they will also likely get homesick. This is normal but how can we as parents let them know that we are thinking about them?

Gourmet Gift Baskets has just the solution. They offer many care package ideas including ones geared towards children. Whether you want to send a box with crafts to keep them busy or whether you want to send a box with yummy treats, they have you covered.

I recently received their Gluten Free Care Package for myself and my daughter to check out. 



I thought the packaging was compact and impressive. Someone receiving this care package wouldn't have to deal with a large box to open. The picture abo…

I received the DKnight MagicBox II Bluetooth 4.0 Portable Wireless Speaker in exchange for my honest review. It's no secret and everyone who knows me, know I am obsessed with music. I am constantly listening to music whether I am in the car, working on the computer or just relaxing around the house.

My complaint when listening around the house is that unless I am using the computer speakers, no one can really hear the music other than myself. Sure my phone has speakers built in, but even on the loudest setting, it's not very loud. So if I had people over for a get together, using my cell phone wouldn't really work.



With the DKnight MagicBox II Bluetooth 4.0 Portable Wireless Speaker, that all changes. I can easily pair the device to my cell phone in about 30 seconds and done. It's r…

My daughter turns 12 this November and I seriously just don't know when that happened! Seriously? 12?! She has been certainly growing up and with it has been coming her wanting to do more things. She has been wanting to do more things not only with me but her friends as well. The standard playdates are just not cutting it anymore. But I will be honest...I am lost here!
