Best ever! Strainer!



My mother bought me this for Christmas this year. I really, really, really love this strainer. It works so good. It’s perfect for when I’m doing stuff. It works good when I’m cutting up broccoli, when I peel potatoes and need to get them rinsed and such. It makes it easy to toss it into the sink and get a quick rinse. I never seen one of these things before my mother bought this for me. It’s one of the best kitchen gadgets ever.

Review Red Fork


As you can tell that I like to post reviews. I don’t have a bunch of them, but I really try to post about the new things I try. I don’t always have time to do the whole fresh home cooked meal bits. In those moments, I turn to the healthiest processed stuff I can get. I was really impressed by Red Fork’s roasted potato seasoning. It’s not a powder. It’s a liquid. You simply cut your potatoes, toss in the seasoning, throw on the pan and bake. Here’s the downfall….I really had to do more thin slices of potatoes. I don’t mean like scalloped potato thin, but just smaller wedges. If you have thick wedges then you’re going to end up with partially raw potatoes.  It is a little more than what I would regularly like to pay. I’d like to see the prices decrease at least by 50 cents to make this a more regular purchase for me. 50 cents is a big difference for purchases like this, at least it is for me. Any way, the thing is…it’s a great every once in a while purchase. I will purchase again. It’s very yummy. Cook well!

Badita Fajita


I clearly love mexican food. My crazy little bit loves it too. The thing with mexican foods is I don’t have time to do the prep work involved with mexican food cooking. I always look for short cuts. I found one with this sweet 10 oz bottle of heaven. I have actually found many uses for this mix. One of my favorite things to do is spice it up a little bit. I like to add a little lime juice, cumin, oregano and such. I like to just make a basic dump of ingredients…and it work’s ya’ll. It tastes good. Just don’t over do the sauce. If you do it’ll be too much. I always have one of these bottle in the fridge or on the shelf. Ya’ll are going to love it!

Farm Fresh Ginger from Goodness Gardens


Ya’ll I get questions all the time about ginger. Not many people know how to use it or what to do with it. I like fresh ginger. I prefer it. It’s much better than using the alternative, ground ginger. A problem I hear from some newbie or less experienced cooks a lot is that when people buy the fresh root, it’s difficult for them to use and they aren’t sure if they are doing it right. It’s alright, that’s normal. I prefer to use the fresh root, but I’ll be honest and say 99% of the time, I do not. I use this product. I find it in the grocery store (even Wal-Mart) next to the carrots and celery. Some stores have it near the bagged salad items. This is very much the same as using the root. This particular brand is my favorite. I’ve used several different brands in the past and this one has been the most fresh tasting one. I’ve even used it a little bit past the expiration date and didn’t have an issue with it. It smells amazing when you open the lid. It’s easy to use which makes me even happier. There’s always a downfall to every good thing. The downfall with this product is, I really end up wasting a bunch. I really wish they made smaller amounts.

Classico Review


Where to begin? As a kid, my cousin Mandy and I used to cook every Friday night for ourselves when we spent the night with my grandparents. We used to buy stuff like this. You know the thoughts, easy to make, teenager made easy type meals. We’d get the precooked chicken and make some mean pasta. Back then we thought we were the best cooks ever. I decided to buy this sauce, which is not the same sauce I used to buy. Normally, the sauce I buy is in the refrigerated section. This sauce wasn’t horrible, but it was definitely not cheesey tasting. It was like gravy. The plus is the kid liked it. However, I probably wont buy this product again. I was pretty unhappy with it. I guess there was a reason why I stopped purchasing it…What’s your experiences?

Maybe I’m crazy for cooking spray?


I know this post seems pretty crazy. I recently decided to switch from my cooking spray that I used a self filling container and try the premade stuff. I was making muffins and I really was worried because I thought it was my pan. SO I bought this pan here:

Nordic Ware Natural Aluminum Commercial Petite Muffin Pan, 24 Cup

It’s perfect by the way. I’m seriously in love with this pan. Anyway, So let me say I had my doubts about this cooking spray, but me oh my! I’ll be buying it from now on.

Pro’s: It sprays great. It’s even and it’s not really all that messy. Nothing I used it on stuck. My pan was actually 10 times easier to clean (how does that happen??)

Con’s: I don’t know if it was because of the flour in the spray, but it did kind of clump up and fell on the side of my can. It was really easy to clean up though. It wasn’t enough to hinder me from purchasing over. and over. and over again.
