This Grill Pan is my Hero

Posted on August 16, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide Reviews

Cave Tools has a great Grill Pan!  I made eggs and bacon on the grill, and didn’t have an issue.  The grill pan is half solid stainless steel, and half slotted stainless steel.  It’s wonderful.  My mom has always wanted grilled eggs, and now she can have them anytime.

I love how the eggs are fully fried, and the bacon is well done.  My 7 year old loves well done bacon, and now I get it well done, every time.  But you can use it for more than just breakfast.  Put your veggies on the solid side, and you won’t lose them in the grill.  No more lost food, I love it!

You can do endless things with this Grill Pan.  I can’t believe I haven’t gotten it before now.  My wife loves it too, she gets out of cooking so much, because we’ve been grilling A lot, since receiving the Grill Pan!  It’s better to keep the heat outdoors, than to have it indoors.

Chocodates Are Loved By Our Family

Posted on July 20, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide

My mom is a date freak, so when I offered her a bag of Chocodates, she jumped.  She says the flavors are all delicious.  Not too rich tasting, but just pure heaven.  She likes the Milk Chocolate the best, but she said the White Chocolate, and Dark Chocolate are tied for second place.  She said she could sit down and eat the entire bag.  When I asked for one, she looked at me as if to say, “Go get your own bag!”  I just laughed.  That’s fine, she is my mother, and doesn’t have to share!

So, I tried the bag of Dark Chocolate, and she’s right, “Fantastic!”  I was never much into dates, but these are absolutely, without a doubt, out of this world.  If you are a date person, you have to try these, even if you aren’t, you should still try them.  I am not, and thought that they were delish!  Even my 21 year old, daughter, tried them.  We didn’t tell her what it was, and she thought it was great, and asked for more.

For some people, there’s nothing quite like the original. Made up of a perfect marriage of premium Arabian dates enrobed in silky smooth cacao rich milk chocolate and pitted with a crunchy and flavour packed almond, this is the Chocodate that started it all.

For those who love chocolate in all flavours and colours, we have a special assorted range for your enjoyment! Savour the complexity of the dark Chocodate, indulge in the light playfulness of the white Chocodate and relish the taste of the silky smooth milk chocolate Chocodate.

I love My Mighty Magnet

Posted on July 18, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide

My 21 year old, daughter, and I, love My Mighty Magnet.  The refrigerator was a mess, with all of our pictures, but now, with My Mighty Magnet, it’s all organized.  And, instead of all over the fridge, it’s in my office.

My Mighty Magnet comes in a multiple of designs.  You will love each and every one.  I am having a hard time deciding which one I want next.  My daughter already picked hers, but when I’m ordering one, I might as well order more than 1.  The designs are so cute/cool, that you cannot have just one.  I already have the clear gems My Mighty Magnet.

So easy to use, and you can place the magnet anywhere on the wire.  It doesn’t have to be in a specific place.  This really saves up room, when you want to compact things.  I’ve never been more pleased than I am with My Might Magnet.

With my daughter, Sarah, going away to college, this is perfect for her dorm room.  With 9 magnets, she can put her to-do list up, pictures of family/friends, and on and on.  This will make a lot of stuff seem like nothing, in one small space.  But, special nothings.

I really need to get on the ball, and order some more.

Now On Blu-Ray & DVD: I Feel Pretty

Posted on July 18, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide Movies

I Feel Pretty is a laugh-out-loud comedy.  We had a ball, watching last night.  My 21 year old loved it, too.  She said she nearly peed her pants with all the hilarity that was involved.  We really got some kicks out of this film.  Amy Schumer is a wonderful actress, with lots of comedy experience.  I will watch this film again, and again.  It’ll never lose the funniness of it.

Michelle Williams is another great actress, and was so good, in this film.  This movie is “fiercely entertaining” said Dustin Putman, The Film File.  And, he’s dead on.  I don’t normally watch movies, because I cannot sit still for 2 hours, but this was really worth watching.

Here’s a little about the movie:

Amy Schumer stars as Renee, a woman who struggles with feelings of insecurity and inadequacy on a daily basis. After suffering a fall, she wakes up believing she is suddenly the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet. With this newfound confidence she is empowered to live her life fearlessly and flawlessly, but what will happen when she realizes her appearance never changed? This hilarious and relatable comedy also stars Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams, Rory Scovel, Busy Philipps, Aidy Bryant and Emily Ratajkowski, and is being hailed by critics as ‘funny and emotionally revealing’ (Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times).

Big Hero 6: The Series

Posted on July 10, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide

Big Hero 6:  The Series

I loved the movie Big Hero 6, so when I found out there was a series coming out, I had to be a part of it.  It’s absolutely fascinating.  My 7 year old loves it.  We watch it at least once, per day.  I love Big Hero 6:  The Series.  My 21 year old, daughter, even watches it with her brother.  You know sometimes the series are disappointing, after a BIG movie, but not this series.  It’s perfect!  We’ve even watched the movie, a few times, with the series.  It never gets old.

The adventures continue for tech genius Hiro Hamada and his healthcare companion, the lovable, inflatable Baymax! Picking up right before the end of the film, Hiro thinks Baymax is lost forever, until he finds the chip Tadashi designed to create Baymax. Hiro immediately gets to work rebuilding Baymax, but his overconfidence and impatience get him into trouble. The stakes are raised for Hiro, Baymax and their friends — adrenaline junkie Go Go, neatnik Wasabi, chem whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred — as they fight to protect San Fransokyo as Big Hero 6.

You really need to pick this up, if you enjoyed the movie.  The series will have you in awww.  It’s truly that amazing.

BBQing wouldn’t be the same without the BBQ Grill Brush from Cave Tools

Posted on July 10, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide

I love Cave Tools, and they just keep seeming to amaze me.  I’ve received another fabulous grilling tool, from them, and I don’t know how I lived without it.  The BBQ Grill Brush is fantastic at getting that stuck on food off of the grill.  I’ve been using it a little over two weeks, now, and we grill almost every day.  It’s strong and steady, and is perfect for even those that don’t have much strength.  I know, because I don’t have much strength.  I turn on the grill for about 2 minutes, then start brushing away the mess.

I can’t get over how Cave Tools always seems to get it right.  No matter what the situation, in grilling, they have the tool for you.  This is, by far, my favorite tool I’ve received.  You can order it from Cave Tools, or from Amazon.

This Brush is Rust Proof, which makes it very valuable to me.  It’s also waterproof, and snow proof!

The picture above, was taken after 3 uses.  It’s still looking brand new.  I do rinse it off after using, but who wouldn’t?

HEAVY DUTY STRENGTH CLIP – Keeps all 3 brushes tight together for maximum cleaning power on all types of grill and smoker grates – great gift idea for dad

You can save 15% off of the purchase price, right now, by ordering through this link, and entering BBQBRUSH15 at checkout.

Fuss-Free Recipes with Dinnerly

Posted on July 9, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide

Dinnerly is a dinner, subscription box.  It’s absolutely perfect.  My daughter and I made some fabulous meals, with the food that was sent.  Every week, you can get different foods, and even Vegetarian dishes.  We went with meat dishes though.

We started with the Turkey Burgers, with Green Beans, and roasted tomatoes.  Oh were they ever delicious.  I can still taste them, my mouth is literally watering.  It was super delicious.  We filled the burgers with cheese, and it was great to add to the flavor.  I ate 3, by myself.  We made them small though, and were able to get 8 out of the package.

Then we made Sausage, and this potato salad for my Mother In Law.  She absolutely raved about the sausage.  Thought it was delicious.  Said, “I’ve never tasted so much flavor in Sausage”.  And, the potato Salad, she took home.  Said it was delicious, and wanted to feed it to my father in law.  Who, after trying it, loved it too.

Finally, we had Chicken Breast.  It was so moist and yummy.  I wish I had more.

Dinnerly is inexpensive, and I’ll be ordering a lot, in the future.  It’s got to be the best subscription box I’ve ever belonged to.  You get to pick out your food, and have it delivered to your door.  All you have to do is add the ingredients together, and cook.  And, you always get a side dish.

Dinnerly is Pure Delish!

My 7 year old loves Little Passports Early Explorers

Posted on July 9, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide

Little Passports Early Explorers is perfect for any little one.  It gives them hours of play, without electronics involved.  My son, age 7, loves his electronics, but when we received Little Passports Early Explorers, he dropped everything to play with it.  He sat there for at least 2 hours, looking through it all.  My 21 year old, daughter, sat with him, and helped him put everything together.  After, of course, going through it all, to see what all was included.  Even though the Early Explorers is aimed at kids up to 5, Jacob just adored it.  I’m going to have to work on getting the next age up.

Little Passports comes in a cute little suitcase, and has everything your child needs to explore through the world, in a suitcase.  It’s super sweet.  Teaching them geography along the way.

There is a monthly plan, for Little Passports, that you can check out here.  You really do get a lot for your money.  I couldn’t be happier with  kit, and will be getting in monthly.

Everything you need to get started:

  • A fun orange suitcase
  • Wall-sized world map
  • 20-page activity booklet
  • Luggage tag
  • Stickers and photo

A new theme is explored each month, including:

  • 20-page activity booklet
  • Fun souvenirs
  • Trading cards
  • Letters and photos
  • Stickers and luggage tags

Does your little one Love to Craft? Adora to the rescue!

Posted on July 9, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide

I used to think that Adora was all baby dolls, and now I found out, they have wonderful wooden beads.  Your crafty little girl would love these beads.  They’d even make a nice stocking stuffer.  I know it’s only July, so why am I talking about Christmas?  Well, because these beads are simply adorable.

Features include:

  • 140+ Piece Wooden Jewelry Kit
  • Fun DIY activity with friends or mom
  • Comes with heart themed charms, assorted beads & elastic cord
  • Promotes creativity and imagination
  • Create rings, bracelets, necklaces and more
  • Cute, colorful pieces for one-of-a-kind jewelry
  • Ages 6 and up

My cousin’s little girl loved that I gave her these.  She has fun for hours.  She will make a bracelet, take it apart, then turn and make another one.  But, the next one is different.  My cousin said, “she hasn’t put them down in a week”.  I’m glad to hear I was able to do something nice for family.

They are only $8.99, and worth every penny.

Now, don’t forget about the baby dolls, every young girl needs a great doll.   And, Adora dolls are super fantastic.  You have different age groups, so it’s appropriate.  I love the dolls as well.  Gave a few to family in past years.  And, the girls they were given to, loved them.
