5 Ingredient Air Fryer Recipes

Posted on March 24, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide recipes Reviews

First of all, I never knew there were so many recipes for the Air Fryer.  I love everything I’ve made, to this point.  And, I plan on making a lot more.  Did you know, for instance, that you can put a potato in the air fryer?  I didn’t know it!  But 5 Ingredient Fryer Recipes has taught me a lot.

If I’m being totally honest, I never put oil, of any kind, in my air fryer. I do every recipe without it. I know this may sound weird, but it’s supposed to be air frying, not deep frying. I’ve never used oil in my air fryer, and I’ve had it for approximately 2 years.

There are over 200 Delicious and Easy Meal Ideas including Gluten Free and Vegan choices.  Isn’t this fantastic?

All of the recipes in this collection require no more than five ingredients (excluding salt, pepper, water and cooking spray), and most can be fully prepared in just 15 to 20 minutes. Each recipe is unique, designed exclusively for the air fryer and downright delectable. The results are every bit as irresistible as higher-fat options — perhaps even more so.

I’m telling you that whether you are new to your Air Fryer, or you’ve had it for years, you will love this cook book.

So, here’s the ingredients for Hard Cooked Eggs:

6 Eggs

Ice Water

To see what to do next, just pick up this cookbook. And, it would make a great gift for Easter too, if you know someone that has an air fryer.

Cave Tools Meat Rakes are Super Awesome!

Posted on March 24, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide Reviews

We love the Meat Rakes that we got from Cave Tools.  It makes pulling pork so much easier than using small forks.  The Cave Tools products are always awesome, and these are definitely amazing.  I’ve been using them for 3 weeks.  They are strong and sturdy, and pull my pork apart in minutes, instead of a lot longer, which is what it used to take.

Cave Tools Meat Rakes are priced perfectly, and you will love them too.  My dad even used the Meat Rakes to pick up a half a ham out of the Roaster, and they worked perfectly.

  • PICK UP LARGE HOT FOOD – Extended handles & bear paw shaped claws provide extra leverage so you never drop another turkey again by trying to pick it up with oven mitts

I can’t wait until Easter, so we can use them to get another ham out of the roaster. My dad really loves the Meat Rakes, maybe there’s an additional pair in his near future.

Just want to add that the handles are made out of rubber, not plastic. This gives your hands a nice comfortable grip, and makes it easier to handle than plastic.

Best Buy has Google Pixelbook

Posted on March 24, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide Best Buy

The Google Pixelbook is so amazing.  When I heard about it, I had to run out and get one.  All the things you can do with it, and Google at your fingertips.  I love my new Google Pixelbook.

I was shopping around for a new laptop, or netbook, when I ran across the Google Pixelbook, at Best Buy.  As you can see, it completely folds in half.  This is the first time that I have owned a computer that does this.  I’m super excited.  The keyboard doesn’t get in my way.

Not only does it fold completely in half, but I can fold it backwards, half way, and use it standing up.  I sit at a desk all day so this is perfect.

This has got to be the best computer purchase that I have ever made, and I have been buying computers since the early 90s.

Let’s talk about some of the great points to owning a Google Pixelbook:

Google by your side

Pixelbook is the first laptop with the Google Assistant built in2.

Beautifully versatile

At just 10.3mm, Pixelbook is Google’s thinnest laptop ever, with a lightweight aluminum construction that enhances portability.

Complete peace of mind

With Chrome OS, you’ll always have the latest security and features with software that automatically updates3 in the background.

Apps for work and play

Do more of what you love with apps including Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Gmail, Photos and more.

These are just some of the great reasons I love the Google Pixelbook. I have to say I’m patting myself on the back over this purchase. Now, my wife even wants one. So, we’ll be going back to purchase another one, very soon.

 There is an offer to save $100 from 3/25 – 4/7.

Avoid that expensive pair of Glasses, buy from Readers.com

Posted on March 23, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide Reviews

Readers.com has been one of my favorite sites, for years.  They have top quality, cheap glasses.  All you need to know is the strength of the glasses you need.  They can do the rest.  You pick out the style and color you like, and tell them your strength, that’s it.

The Jack Bifocal Sun Reader I use nearly every day.  I love this pair of glasses.  I wear them in the car, mostly.  The power, for the Jack, goes up to 3.5, and you will be able to wear these out in the sun.

These sport sun readers really are the jack of all trades. The rimless lenses have a bottom inner bifocal portion for close range viewing and a non-magnified top area allowing you to easy see near and far.

The Zeek Bifocal Sun Reader I gave to my dad, who wears the same strength as I do.  He has them in his vehicle and wears them on business trips.

A sporty look with functional lenses makes the perfect combo. The Zeek has an inner magnified bifocal and an unmagnified upper portion allowing you to keep these on for all purposes.

The Beau I also received.   These glasses I have on my desk, at work.  I use them when putting in time, and anything else that needs done.  My wife loves their style.

Always on the go? Choose The Beau! This slim reader has a rimless frame that fits perfectly into the included tube case. Adjustable nose pieces make this one comfortable on top of convenient.

These are just the glasses I received.  There are many more to choose from. I do believe you will love all the choices though.

Aliens Ate My Homework DVD & Digital Movie

Posted on March 22, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide kids Reviews

Aliens Ate My Homework was an interesting film, and both of my kids loved it.  Sarah, age 20, thought it was so cute, and Jacob, age 6, believed the entire film.  It’s really cute.  I loved it too.

The cast was great, and consisted of: Jayden Greig, Lauren McNamara, Kirsten Robek, Dan Payne, Alex Zahara, Ty Consiglio, Sean Quan, William Shatner, Tristan Risk.

Unexpected extraterrestrial guests team up with a pair of middle schoolers to prevent the destruction of the planet in Aliens Ate My Homework, coming to DVD, Digital and On Demand on March 6, 2018, from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. A humorous and suspenseful intergalactic adventure, Aliens Ate My Homework follows the whimsical members of the Galactic Patrol on the trail of an evil alien criminal hiding out on Earth.

Based on the first book in prolific author Bruce Coville’s globally renowned “Galactic Patrol” series published by Aladdin Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster Children’s Publishing, Aliens Ate My Homework features the voice of two-time Emmy Award winner William Shatner (“Star Trek”)  and comes from director Sean McNamara (The King’s Daughter). The film also stars Jayden Greig (The Shape of Water), Lauren McNamara (“Summer of Dreams”), Kirsten Robek (The Edge of Seventeen), Dan Payne (Star Trek Beyond, Watchmen), Ty Consiglio (Wonder) and Alex Zahara (“The Man in the High Castle”).

Aliens Ate My Homework is a suspenseful family comedy which follows the adventures of sixth-grader Rod Allbright (Greig) and the extraterrestrial lawmen known as the Galactic Patrol. When a tiny spaceship flies through his window and lands on his science project, Rod and his cousin Elspeth (McNamara) meet a group of friendly aliens, including Phil, a talking plant (voiced by William Shatner). The earthlings quickly join the aliens’ adventurous mission to help defeat an evil alien criminal. After discovering the evil alien is disguised as a human – someone he knows all too well – Rod and Elspeth race to save the world from total planetary disaster.

How to Save the Most Money on Your Mortgage

Posted on March 22, 2018 in Announcements

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by PSECU, a Pennsylvania-based credit union.

Buying a home is an exciting moment in any person’s life. It’s one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make! That’s why it’s important to do your research on how to save the most money on your mortgage.

This list includes money-saving tips for before you buy a home and also after you buy. Each tip will help you save a little bit but over time those savings will add up.

PSECU created this cheat sheet on the various types of home loans with different ways you can pay less in interest.

Make Sure Your Credit Score Is Good

The lower the interest rate on your mortgage, the lower the monthly payment will be. Lenders will charge higher interest rates to people with lower credit scores. About one year before looking for your home, check your credit score. If it needs to be higher, work to raise it.

Shop for the Lowest Interest Rate Possible

Interest rates matter tremendously in your payment. The lower the rate, the lower your payments. Shop around for the lowest interest rate you can find. Even a 1% decrease in interest rate can save you thousands of dollars over the life of the loan. If you are financing in a period of high rates, consider refinancing when interest rates go down again.

Avoid PMI by Paying 20% Down

If your down payment is less than 20 percent, most lenders will charge Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). When you own 78 percent of the home’s assessed value, PMI will drop on conventional loans, but until then, it will add to your mortgage costs every month. Be cautious of FHA loans that have PMI for the life of the loan. You would need to refinance in order to get that extra monthly payment removed. And refinancing means you have to pay closing costs, which is usually 2-3% of the loan.

Use Points

Points are a type of prepaid interest that you can pay upfront to lower your costs over the life of the mortgage. You can usually buy up to three points. These points are in addition to your mortgage costs. Before you purchase points, take the time to calculate if you will recoup the cost of the points.

Make Additional One-Time Payments

Any payment you make on the mortgage’s principal will lower the amount you owe, and decrease the monthly payment. So making one-time payments every year will help those mortgage payments drop. If you receive a tax return or a cash gift, it’s a good investment of the money.

Plan for Biweekly Payments

Biweekly payments lower the principal faster than monthly payments. With biweekly payments, you will pay a lower amount 26 times per year rather than 24 times, which whittles the mortgage away faster. The more the mortgage amount drops, the less you pay.

Take the time to figure out how you can best save money on your mortgage before purchasing a home, and you will certainly thank yourself later.
