Family Bonding – Cooking Breakfast For Dinner

JoieShop

I credit my love, passion and ability to cook to my grandmother. Almost every recipe I know consist of "a little of this, a dash of that and cook until its ______." There are no exact measurements, no time frame, no labels on a box. This is because the recipes are learned by memory, by making them over and over with my grandmother. My daughter is only 2 but she loves to cook. I know what your thinking the thought of kids in the kitchen brings to mind flour coated tables, chairs, hair, faces … [Read more...]

Danze Sonora Faucet Review & Shower Head Giveaway! (ends 8/5)

Danze Sonora

I love DIY home improvement. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a pro, and it's a lot of work, but there is something so satisifying when you take a step back and say "I did that!" We are in the process of renovating our bathroom top to bottom, but until things get into full swing this summer I have been working on little things that can be done immediately and easily. For the past 2 weeks I have been trying to install my bathroom vanity including the faucet, vanity top, and base. This endeavor has … [Read more...]

Danze Showerhead Review and Sweepstakes (ends 6/30)

Danze 503 Shower head

We just purchased our first home a little over a year ago and ever since, it has been one renovation after another. Because we spend the least amount of time in the bathroom, it's the last area of the house to be completed. Right now our bathroom is ugly. The floors are still concrete and the wall is a paneling that we painted over. The genius who built the house put a window in my shower..seriously, a window. So my bathroom, in a word, is a hotmess. Bathroom renovations can be expensive and … [Read more...]

{Review & Giveaway} Shenzhen Knives: 6″ Ceramic Chef’s Knife (ends 12/20)

Shenzhen Knives: Affordable Ceramic Knives

I love food and I love to cook. I'd say about 90% of the food we eat in our house is something I've made from scratch. As such, there are 2 items in my kitchen that I always splurge and spend the extra dough for quality on - cookware and knives. A dull or "cheap" knife is probably my #1 pet peeve in the kitchen! I was recently asked to review a Chef's Knife from Shenzhen Ceramic Knives. These ceramic knives are made of an advanced ceramic called zirconia, the second hardest material known to … [Read more...]

{Dear Santa} Tassimo T20 Brewbot Review & Giveaway (ends 1/22)

Tassimo T20 high res

Single cup coffee brewers seem to be all the rage lately, don't they? I'll admit - when I first heard of them, I actually thought they were just plain silly. Now, after having tried a couple, I don't ever want to go back to a regular 10-12 cup maker with filters and coffee grounds and washing out carafes - yucko. My life is all about efficiency and convenience now and these single cup brewers definitely fit that bill! I've had my eye on Tassimo for a while now and was absolutely thrilled … [Read more...]
