New Product Review – Blissfully Better Chocolate

As far as I’m concerned, there is no BAD time for a piece of chocolate. Wouldn’t you agree?

I don’t, however, indulge very often, because chocolate isn’t all that great for you. Now, I’m not a healthy example for the masses, but I DO try to eat good things, and if I “indulge” in the bad ones, I make sure it doesn’t happen all that often.

But, thankfully, I’ve been introduced to something sweet that doesn’t fit the usual mold! It’s called Blissfully Better Chocolate.

New Product Review: X-Chef Stainless Steel Garlic Press!

**PLEASE NOTE: While X-Chef DID provide me with this product to review at no cost, I have not in any way been paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**

We just had an amazing weekend here in Central Florida, y’all! Started out with a bit of drizzle on Saturday morning, but cleared up beautifully, and we had temps in the 50’s for the rest of the day Saturday and all day Sunday! Gorgeous!

That’s what’s called “soup weather” in Central Florida. We don’t get much of this weather, so we have to make the most of it, and I decided to do just that with some of my homemade chili! One of my hubby’s favorites!

One of the ingredients in my chili happens to be a couple cloves of garlic. Pressed, of course. But I’ve been using jarred minced garlic for a while, because I’ve hated the nasty mess of a garlic press for quite some time now.

So when X-Chef asked me to review their Stainless Steel Garlic Press, I figured it was just another frustrating kitchen utensil. But apparently I wasn’t quite right in that that assumption.


First off, this garlic press is a heavy duty piece of equipment! Stainless steel, it’s not gonna be breaking on you anytime soon, I can promise you that. And I love the hooks on the bottom for easy storage!

But what sets this garlic press apart from others is the fact that it has 3 pieces to it:

On the Road in May

May The Road to Domestication

Less than 7 months until Christmas, y’all.

I’m sorry – I couldn’t resist.

Can you believe that today is JUNE 1?! (It’s also the beginning of hurricane season, which is a big deal for us in Florida. And since the painters literally finished painting the outside of our house on Friday, I’m not sure whether we’re totally smart – since everything is nicely sealed now – or totally gonna have an insurance claim on our hands – and have to pay for new paint all over again! I guess we’ll find out…)

Anyway…today is the day we find out the top five posts here on the blog for the month of May! Let’s see…

Van’s Simply Delicious Review & Giveaway!

**PLEASE NOTE: While Van’s DID provide me with this product to review at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**

Today I’m thrilled to be working with Van’s Simply Delicious once again! I’ve done several reviews and giveaways for Van’s here on the blog, and the thing I love about Van’s is…well…EVERYTHING!

When I was first diagnosed with Celiac’s Disease, Van’s was one of the first companies I discovered that was making gluten-free items, and they quickly became a name I looked for often! The same is true today, but the difference now is, Van’s has totally stepped up their game! BIG TIME!

image001I happen to LOVE the new tagline! And if you’ve ever had any Van’s brand of foods, I know you agree with it, as well!

But this time around, Van’s didn’t just send me FOOD.
