Healthy Solutions Spice Blends® Review

I recently just discovered this hidden treasure, Healthy Solutions Spice Blends®. These spice blends are all natural, high quality, and recipe ready. This is such a easy way to spruce up your dinner in seconds.  I also enjoy that I don’t have to worry about artificial ingredients, fillers, no MSG, and no salt. It great finding a seasoning which contain none of those factors.

I use these spice blends on fish, beef, pork and poultry. Each package comes with a specific use ex “shrimp scampi”, this contains all the spices you need all in one bag to make a delicious and easy meal. Another great thing I enjoy about the packages they come in is that it includes a simple recipe on that back, for that specific spice blend.  The feature that I enjoy most about the packages they come is that they are small resealable bags.  These bags are small enough to store in my spice cabinet and don’t take up too much space.

Ninja Blender Product Review

I recently started using the Ninja Blender. The really cool thing about this blender is the six blade design, rather than the usual single blade.  This design is unlike any blender that I’ve ever used, and it works great for all types of recipes. In just a few minutes, it blends fruits and vegetables smoothly.  Unlike other blenders, it doesn’t leave them chunky.

Another great feature is the pitcher. You blend right in the pitcher, which makes it great for making drinks. I have been using for my smoothies and other blended drinks at parties and for outdoor entertaining in the summer. It also blends ice into a snow like texture with no big ice chunks, perfect for slush drinks for the kids.

Moms Gourmet Spice Blends Review

I was recently introduced to the site MomsGourmet.net and already I love it. On this site, you can buy homemade spice blends to use on all different kinds of foods- including meats, fruits, and desserts! Mom, or Patsy Flattery, and her daughter Sally created the site after experimenting in the kitchen their whole lives.

They wanted more flavor than the spices available to them at the store, and also wanted a healthier option, something that didn’t have so much sugar and sodium. Now, they sell their spice creations through their website MomsGourmet.net. All their spices run for $8.00 (plus shipping) for 7.75 oz. Included on the site right next to the add to cart button are the ingredients of each spice, plus a quick little blurb about what you can use the spice for, which is great for home chefs that aren’t as familiar with every spice, because you get instant ideas rght before you buy. Another added bonus- all of their spices are low in sodium (and sometimes salt-free!).

Simply Organic Product Review

If you watch my TV segments on NBC CT, Better Connecticut and even on the Better Show then I hope you saw that I love Simply Organic!  I love their product so much it pleases me to share this review with you.

It’s so important for our health, and the health of the Earth to eat organically. Sometimes it can be difficult to find organic options in big supermarkets- the selection is lower and pricier than non-organic options. This is why I was so excited to find Simply Organic.

Bormioli Rocco Product Review

If you’re looking for fine crafted, elegant glassware, then I can only recommend Bormioli Rocco.

Everything that they produce is pristine.

This Italian glassware company was started in 1825. Being Italian myself, I think the tradition here is just beautiful. They really stress quality in their products, which are not only used in homes, but for businesses as well. Ever wonder who makes Nutella jars? Yup. Bormioli Rocco.

There are so many different products to choose from, that there’s guaranteed to be something that you like. Most designs come in various sizes. For example, glasses often come in a large, medium, and small size, and many designs come in a variety of colors. This is great if you are looking to make a set that’s a little more varied or eclectic.

Hamilton Beach Product Review

By far, one brand that I always come back to is Hamilton Beach. It’s one of my go-to’s for all my small kitchen appliances. Here are just some I currently own.  A big food processor, slow cooker (and I just love the red), coffee maker, blender, waffle maker, indoor grill, and egg cooker. In fact, I trust these products so much that I often use them as giveaways for my readers and viewer

The big food processor is great for cooking. It prepares my food quickly and easily. I can also process large quantities of food, instead of running a smaller processor several times. It has a sleek design, like all Hamilton Beach products, which looks good out, but the lid also folds down so that it can be stored easier in a cabinet space, which is a big plus if you’re working in a small kitchen.
