Back To School with Home Chef

Posted on August 28, 2016 in Reviews

Home Chef is a great service.

I recently started going through Home Chef, for my family.  It’s great.  I couldn’t ask for a better selection, and the food is so fresh.  I didn’t use mine for about 3 days, and it was still fresh.  I love the freshness, and so does 19 year old, Sarah.

Sarah will come home from her Sophmore year, at College, and make herself a meal.  This is so easy with Home Chef.  Everything in one place, just throw it together, and POW! the perfect dinner.  I even got her a few 2 people meals, so she can feed her boyfriend.  We love Home Chef, and will continue to order from them, as long as they are a service.

FedEx brought our package, all arranged in Dry Ice.  It was in Baggies, and marked what it was.  They gave me a recipe, and a binder to keep the recipes in.  That way, if I want to make it again, I can.

You, too, will love Home Chef Meal Delivery Service, and it will make your life so much easier.  The meals are really inexpensive, and it tells you what you have in your kitchen, and what they sent you in the bag.  Like I already said, everything, including the bag, is already easily marked, for you to know what is where.  We had Broccoli, and Balsamic Steak yesterday.

There’s an easy to find guide on their site, that will review your meals with you.  So far, I’ve received:  Chicken Pad Thai, and Balsamic-Glazed Steak.  Both meals were absolutely delicious.  And, since Sarah is getting ready to move near College, we let her make the meals, for practice.  Again, I will continue to order from Home Chef, and I will order for Sarah & Josh, when they move to College.  This will make sure they are fed well, at an inexpensive price.


One more thing I want to mention, is their refer a friend feature.  Check out the link.

Back To School with 1-800-NYC-Bagels

Posted on August 27, 2016 in Reviews


I love Bagels, and what better way to send my kids back to school, with a filling breakfast.  Jacob will be starting Kindergarten, so he has to have a filling breakfast.  And, Sarah, in her Second year of College, the same.

1-800-NYC-Bagels is my new, favorite bagel makers.  The bagels are so filling, and delicious.  I will definitely be ordering again, and again.  They know how to make deliciousness.

The bagels are made fresh, and shipped to you immediately.  I did share mine, with my mom & mother in law.  We all loved them.  I even had the opportunity to freeze a few.  Out of the freezer, they are just as good as fresh.


There are over a dozen varieties, including:  Chocolate Chip, Plain, Raisin, Blueberry, and more.  Take a look over on their page.

If you are a bagel lover, these bagels will make you smile, as you make it through your day knowing you are full.

The taste is the best that I’ve had in a bagel.  I love the Raisin Bagels best.  Although, I must say, they are all great.  My mom loved the Everything Bagel, and my mother in law is a Plain kind of girl.

And, now I can make bagel sandwiches, with ease.  Also, if you love Philly Cream Cheese, throw some on a Raisin Bagel (or any flavor, really) for pure delight.

We will be having a contest for a dozen bagels, with two winners.  Make sure to Bookmark this page.

The Stationery Studio has Great Product for Back To School

Posted on August 17, 2016 in Reviews

The Stationery Studio

The Stationery Studio is my go to for Back to School products.  My daughter, age 19, Sophmore in College, loves her new merchandise from The Stationery Studio.  She has a new Laptop Case, as well as, a new iPhone Case.  She’s already using the iPhone Case.  The Laptop Case she is saving for College.  She truly does adore her new products.


The Stationery Studio has more than just these products though, they have just about everything Back To School, then some.  The Note Cards are perfect, for Back To School.  Send a note to the Teacher, with these beautiful cards.


They even have Party Supplies, that you can get personalized.  I thought about doing this for my parents’ 50th Anniversary, next year.  I think that they, too, will love The Stationery Studio.  So, I do believe I will be ordering again.

The Stationery Studio is perfect for any occasion, and on the site, there’s a place where you can pick the occasion to shop by.  This is such an easy feature, and so useful.


As Christmas is getting closer, consider getting a return address stamper.  It’ll be so much easier to do your return address, if you have a stamper.  I know I have one, and love it.  This is actually good for more than just Christmas, like for bills, letters, etc.


For those that love Emoticons, check out the stuff above.


If you are planning a Halloween party, you can even get items for that.  This site is perfect for all occasions.
