Tattler Reusable BPA-Free Canning Lids: Review and Giveaway

I’ve had a few comments here recently in regards to how much work it was to can tomatoes, as some readers followed my step-by-step tutorial for canning diced tomatoes. I agree. Canning takes a lot of work. Much as I love the end result, it isn’t really something I do just for kicks. Though it certainly can be money saving, particularly if you are using garden produce or buying ripe produce at end-of-the-season prices, that isn’t the only reason that I do it. When I […]

There is a new nighttime battle between my husband and I. No, it isn’t a tug-of-war for the comforter or over who gets the fluffiest pillow. We’re both clamoring to use our Spoonk Rider mat, for a little bit of bedtime relaxation! I first ran into the Spoonk Rider portable acupressure mat at an Eco Trade Show in Vancouver early this year. They were available to try for a few minutes in the midst of the busy convention center. I was a bit wary of […]

Site Troubles and Plan to Eat Giveaway

Some of you may have noticed that there was some downtime for my blog this weekend. There are more things going on in the backend and with the design (nothing major- just trying to work out some kinks) but unfortunately the work resulted in a brief outage. There are a few aspects of the site that are still missing and/or on the fritz, but we are doing our very best to have everything back to normal as quickly as we can. During the outage, some […]

Simplified Menu Planning with Plan to Eat: Review and Giveaway

plantoeatgrab2mealplan

I’ve been menu planning for many, many years now and I’ve always been a paper and pen kind of gal. However, when Clint from Plan to Eat asked me to review the site and offer a giveaway to my readers, I was excited to give something new and different a try. My first impression of Plan to Eat was, “This is fantastic. And it looks so easy. If only I didn’t have to spend hours upon hours entering in all of my recipes. Maybe I […]
