Eatsmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale Review

Anyone that has been cooking for a while, will eventually stop measuring ingredients. Instead, ingredients will be measured in more of a "that looks about right" style. This isn't a big deal when making chili or meatloaf, but this Memorial Day I wanted to grill burgers. This was a new frontier for me, as I normally just get a pork shoulder of chicken and not worry about how big things are. For the burgers, however, I specifically was looking for quarter pounders.

WW-Quiet Toddlers

Never trust a quiet toddler.

I am a day behind this week due to Memorial Day. ;-) So let's pretend it's Wednesday for a moment.

I was painting terra cotta pots and my son offered to rinse the brush and container. He did nicely on the first color. When it came to the black he was gone a long time. He came out of the bathroom and quietly moved to the corner. Hmmm I thought something wasn't right. I went into the bathroom to find this lovely mess. There was more on the floor and toilet. 

He didn't get in trouble for making the mess but for not telling me. So never trust a quiet toddler.

Pure Fitness Nutrition #Review

Protein bars have a historical connotation as being fairly disgusting.  Between the weird texture and artificial flavors, it really was a struggle to eat them. Not any more. recently Pure Fitness Nutrition sent me three of their protein bars to try, and let me tell you, this things are amazing. 

The foundation of the bar is whey protein isolate. Whey isolates yield a higher percentage of pure protein and can be filtered enough to be virtually lactose free, carbohydrate free, fat free, and cholesterol free. This type of protein is terrific for elping to build lean muscle.


Peanut Butter & Jelly Crunch tasted exactly as you would expect. All of the flavors blend perfectly with a satisfyingly sweet peanut flavor. The crunch was brought in by using pretzel bits which helped to balance the sweetness with their saltiness. 



The Banana Chocolate Nut bar was my favorite. It was like eating a fresh piece of banana bread. When it was gone, I was more than a little disappointed.


Dark Cranberry Chocolate had a more sophisticated flavor that you would expect from the name. There was no overpowering sweetness here, just the slight bitter of dark chocolate and that alluring cranberry tartness.


These bars are labeled as being meal replacements, a claim that I would agree with. I ate each of these in place of my normal breakfast, and found myself to be satisfied until lunch.

If I were to have a negative opinion about these bars, it would have to be the stickiness. I don't know if it was the honey or the agave, but these bars really stuck to my teeth. I mean, "finger in the mouth to remove things" sticky. Not a big deal early in the morning, but enough to keep me from eating one before a staff meeting at work.

Garden Buddies-Dollar Store Craft

Super easy and fun clay pot craft for toddlers and you. Craft materials are found at the Dollar Tree. The 3 terracotta pots are sold together for $1.

Meet Ms. Ladybug, Mr Froggie & The BEE! As you can see you don't have to be an artist to make this cute trio.

  • 3-pack of Terracotta pots @ 2 1/4 tall
  • Acrylic paints & brushes
  • pipe cleaners

The antenna on the lady bug is from a bright green pipe cleaner. The froggie is a little funny. The inspiration photo used a Styrofoam ball for the head and eyes. I glued two different sized yellow fuzz balls for the Bees wings and bright yellow pipe cleaners for the antenna.

Mustache Cookie Cutter Set Product Review and Giveaway!

The first ever Mustache Cookie Cutter Set!
Complete with 3 different styles, this set is sure to make you the hit of any party or event.

Our mustache cookie cutters measure around 4"W x 1.25-1.5"T but vary depending on shape. Made of 100% stainless steel. $5 from each sale is donated to the Movember Foundation!

I was very excited for this opportunity to review this Cookie Cutter Set by fuzzy ink. My husband's family have an ongoing joke that a certain family member MUST grow a mustache! The next time we have a family gathering I will be using these cookie cutters for some yummy treats.

I was all set to make the sugar cookie recipe found on the box. However my craving for brownies took over. The scraps are great warmed and topped with ice cream!

The cutters were simple to use and cut nicely. The brownies are softer than cookies so they lost a bit of their shape. They sure made brownies fun to eat!

How do we look?


Now for a giveaway. FuzzyInk is offering one winner the Mustache Cookie Cutter Set ARV $16. Don't forget to visit their shop for more stache-tastic products like T-shirts!

The joints and decorative center is soldered together. The pin is attached so you don't have to worry about losing it. The patent pin has 3 notches for tightness.




What Size Do I Need?

Want an easy way to tell what size you are without the sizing video? Put your hand around your full ponytail and squeeze down...If the amount you're holding resembles a nickel, you're an extra small. A quarter, you're a small. A 50 cent piece, you're a medium, and anything bigger and you'll need large or xl. This would be for a ponytail or tails-up. A half-up would be a smaller size, and a French twist would be larger.
