Farberware Classic Cookware Set Review and Giveaway!

entertowindivider

This contest has ended!

The first gift I received (from my Mom) when I got engaged was a set of Farberware stainless steel cookware.  My mom used them in her kitchen for as long as I can remember and after she passed away we gave them to a niece that is still using them, they were in excellent shape.

I have had my set for over forty years and they are still in great condition like the day I got them. They have cooked many meals for my family over the past forty years and I am confident they will continue to serve me for many more years to come.

I had the pleasure of receiving for review this amazing 17 piece Farberware Classic Stainless Steel Cookware Set which I will gift to my son and future daughter-in-law for their new home. This set has a non-stick coating on each of the two skillets for easy clean up and non-stick cooking.  Each pot/pan has safety stay-cool handles which insure you never get burned.  I have purchased some pots over the years and handles got so hot they were dangerous and I pitched them for that reason.  This will never happen with your Farberware set.  The cookware and bakeware (only) is oven safe up to 350 degrees so you can go from the stove top directly into the oven to finish off your meal. Each Farberware pot/pan has an aluminum core for even heating so no dead spots with uneven cooking temperatures.

This 17 piece set is a wonderful starter set for a new bride, new home owner, or just as a replacement set for any seasoned cook.

As an added bonus this set includes three stainless steel bowls with lids and two cookie pans.

The 17 piece set includes the follow:

  • One 1-quart pot + lid
  • One 2-quart pot + lid
  • One 3-quart pot + lid
  • One 4-quart pot + lid
  • One 8-quart pot + lid
  • One 8-inch skillet – lids are interchangeable with pots
  • One 10-inch skillet – lids are interchangeable with pots
  • Three (3) stainless steel bowls with lids
  • Two (2) cookie pans

Check out all the wonderful cookware sets that Farberware has to offer at their on line store – Farberware On Line Store  You can also find them at Amazon as well.

KITCHENEED Barbecue Grilling Cooking Gloves – with Bonus Basting Brush Review!

My husband loves to BBQ. We own gas grill, a Smoker and a deep fryer for outdoor use. I don’t know why but we have never invested in a pair of BBQ gloves after all these years. For years whenever my husband would have to handle hot ribs off the smoker he would use cloth oven mitts and get burned eventually when the sauce would soak through the fabric – I know crazy right?

So when the folks at Kitcheneed asked me to test and review their Silicone Cooking and BBQ Gloves I was thrilled.

As soon as I received the gloves I opened the package and to my surprise there was a wonderful silicone basting brush that was included as a bonus. I love these silicone basting brushes they come in so handy for many kitchen jobs. For years, anytime we had to grease a pan we would have to use a paper towel to do so, not anymore with silicone basting brushes. I have several and use them all the time so this was an added bonus.

The gloves are over-sized so they will fit just about any size hand especially a man.  My husband especially liked the “rugged skin” as it’s called (textured nubs on the gloves) that provide a nice non-slip surface.  The instructions state that the gloves work to protect hands at a frigid -45 degrees to the searing heat of 425 degrees. So when my husband picked up the steaming hot ribs from the smoking pit the gloves protected his hands from burns.

The silicone material is BPA (cancer causing chemicals) free, top quality silicone, so I am sure we will have them for many years to come.

The gloves have a nice “loop” tab so you can hang them up on any hook in your kitchen for every day use or on the BBQ when just using them outdoors.

Make no mistake these versatile glove are not just for BBQing. They are wonderful for any household job that requires you to handle hot or cold items. Even in boiling water, the waterproof design makes sure your hands stay dry, and safeguarded from burns. Best of all, they are FDA approved. I am going to use them when I clean out my freezer. I’m always looking for a pair of winter gloves when doing this so that my hands do not get freezer burnt handing the frozen foods.

Here I am taking a very hot pan out of the oven (filet) and I was able to handle it with no issue using the Kitcheneed Silicone Cooking and BBQ Gloves

Bloomsy Box Review

I was asked recently to review fresh flowers from a company called Bloomsy Box.  As most of you know, I had eye surgery on the 14th of September. During my recovery, the flowers arrived. Bloomsy Box is an online retailer of fresh flowers that delivers to anywhere in the USA. I am sure many of you (like myself) have used an online retail florist to send flowers to a friend or relative who lives outside of your immediate area. I, for one, have never been satisfied with the flowers that my friend or loved one received. They never look like what they portray on the website and they charge a small fortune to boot. I don’t mind paying for what I perceive to be the same exact arrangement of flowers that I see on their website but it angers me when I find out it’s nothing like what they describe.

A few years ago for Mother’s Day, my son spent a small fortune to send me what he thought was the Mother’s Day arrangement from a well-known, advertised-on-TV online florist. What came was nothing like what he had ordered.  It was a very small arrangement and nothing like he had paid for. The flowers came from a local florist and, needless to say, my son was disappointed and I was angry because I knew he had spent over $100 for what he thought he was getting. I called the local florist and only after I complained did the “advertised” arrangement show up at my door. Now, had I not known about the “advertised” arrangement, I would have never known that what I received was nothing like what he had ordered.

bloomsey2My Bloomsy Box beautiful flowers arrived in a box via overnight shipping. They had not bloomed yet so I put them in a vase with the special food packet included in the box and the following day, I woke up to this beautiful arrangement.

These beautiful lilies continue to flourish each day in my house and so far they have lived over 10 days. I received them on the 19th of September and today is now the 29th and they are still alive and vibrant.  Normally, you can barely get a week out of fresh cut flowers, even if they are delivered locally. My best friend sent me a dozen long stem roses for my birthday; they didn’t even last seven days.

Every bouquet Bloomsy Box sends includes amazingly fresh, unique, and long-lasting blooms! Each stem is hand-picked from the farm, arranged in stunning bouquets, and delivered straight to your door in less than four days.  No more dull, dry, week-old flowers! Since most of their blooms arrive in bud form, they’re guaranteed to last longer than your typical store-bought bouquets. Bloomsy Box has farm partnerships that guarantee you’ll get blooms that are freshly cut 2-4 days before you get to enjoy them. You know what’s even more awesome? The farms they work with take care of their workers and the environment.

At Bloomsy Box you can purchase a one-time bouquet under the “shop” tab or you can buy a monthly subscription for someone special in your life.

Check out the beautiful flowers available at Bloomsybox.com.

Genius 6 Cup Nicer Dicer Plus Review And Giveaway!

THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED!

entertowindivider

I don’t know about you all but I hate (and that’s a loud hate) chopping up veggies as part of my meal preparations.  It’s time consuming and I never seem to get them all the same size and shape so they don’t cook evenly. So when I was asked to test the Genius Nicer Dicer I didn’t hesitate to accept the offer.

This product will be a huge time saver for any seasoned or amateur cook.  The product is easy to operate (take it out of the box, attach a few pieces, and you are ready to go) and clean up was a breeze.  The Genius Nicer Dicer can be hand washed or is dishwasher safe.

For those of you concerned about toxic plastics – the Genius Nicer Dicer is BPA free.  Many of these products out today actually tell you they are not “dishwasher safe” not for the reason you might think (that the plastic will melt) but for the fact that excessive heat leaches out the cancer-causing toxins from the plastic.  However, you don’t have to worry about the Genius Nicer Dicer it is food safe with no cancer-causing components.

The Genius Nicer Dicer comes with the following items:

  • Includes slicer, grater, spiral slicing blade, spiral julienne blade, blade insert for cutting four-piece and eight-piece wedges, chopping blade with 1/4″ and 1/2″ cubes, and two 6-cup containers with lids
  • Dishwasher-safe
  • Measures 5″H x 11-1/4″W x 4-1/4″L
  • 1-year Limited Manufacturer’s Warranty

NOTE – since I received this product they have come out with a newer version called The Nicer Dicer Plus which is what the winner of my contest will receive.  

Here is a short video I took while using my Genius Nicer Dicer set.

 

This set is only available through this link at the introductory price Genius 6 Cup Nicer Dicer Plus w/ Extra 6 Cup Container

I highly recommend the Genius Nicer Dicer for your own kitchen and as a gift for anyone who loves to cook.

Aureus Men’s Shoe Review and Giveaway!

This contest has ended!

I had the pleasure of receiving for review a pair of Aureus Men’s Shoes which I gifted to my son.  Aureus is a men’s shoe company with a unique sole construction called AM-TECH Sole Technology which gives the consumer the greatest possible comfort with the least amount of sole separation. They only use 100% genuine top grade leather for their shoe uppers and inner linings. All of their designs are created in-house and they aim to always bring new and original fashion to their customers.  They only use eco-friendly materials on all their shoes which I thought was amazing.  This company cares about the environment.  See below all the details about their eco-friendly materials.

My son loved the sharp style and comfort of this shoe.  He’s one of these people that hates (and I mean hates) restrictive shoes that hurt your feet. Not the Aureus Patron (which is the style we receive.) I was very impressed with the construction of this shoe as well.  It is meticulously made and I am certain my son will have them for many years of enjoyment.

As you can see by the photo below they are stylish with comfort.  The Patron comes in four colors: Silver (below), Dark Brown, Navy Blue and Wheat (tan) in men’s sizes ranging from 6.5 to size 13. The Patron features – 100% Genuine Nubuck Leather Upper, Polyurethane (PU) Insole Cushion, AM-TECH® Sole Technology, Direct Injected Sole Construction, Elastic Shoelaces, Metal Eyelets, Eco-Friendly Materials and Anti-Slip Sole Properties.

The Patron is only one of many styles of men’s comfort shoes being featured on the Aureus website at https://www.aureus-usa.com/

Free ground shipping is included with each order. They come beautifully packaged in a carry bag and a brush is included with each shoe to keep your genuine suede leather in tip top shape.

About the company:

The Aureus brand was founded in the United States in 1977 as a provider of quality golf apparel. Throughout the 1980’s Aureus grew in name among industry professionals and was worn both on and off the golf course by several all-time great professional golfers of the era, including PGA-major winners Larry Mize, Scott Timpson, John Mahaffey, and the legendary Raymond Floyd. Outside of making quality apparel, Aureus worked closely with PGA professionals in promoting and teaching the game of golf. In 1990, the company was named the top-selling golf apparel maker in the United States by Golf Pro Merchandiser. Throughout the 1990’s and 2000’s Aureus continued to sell quality golf clothing to retailers all across the United States and Canada. In 2014, Aureus expanded to include casual and lifestyle footwear, staying true to the quality that is a part of Aureus’ DNA. Their technology, quality, and comfort are what separate Aureus footwear from the rest of the pack. The backbone of what they do is in our technology. 

Aureus footwear only uses environmentally friendly materials in its construction. Most of the raw materials used in the making of our products are 100% sustainable and biodegradable. Polyurethane (PU) and Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) are organically composed compounds, and as outsole materials, they are safer than all other commercially-used materials such as rubber and PVC. The water-based adhesive used in our footwear contains zero VOC’s, meaning they do not evaporate under certain climate conditions, thus having no health risks or unpleasant scents.

Lugz Drifter Fleece Toddler Boot Review!

entertowindivider

Hello Everyone!

I had the pleasure of reviewing the Lugz Drifter Fleece Toddler Boot in the black color for my 2-year old daughter. Needless to say, my little fashionista loved them! They fit great and she walked around with them for over 2 hours with no complaints. She did not even want to take them off at bed time. They look great with skinny, flare or boot-cut jeans, even leggings! The inner fleece is SUPER soft and will keep her feet warm during the colder months. They are made extremely durable and I hope to get many great years of use as I will be passing them down to my younger daughter. I give these shoes 2 thumbs way up and will be buying more!

Sincerely, Michelle A.

From Rosey:  Welcome Michelle as a regular contributor to my blog.  Michelle is my new tech support helper and will be doing a lot of children’s reviews for me.  You can find them all in the tab labeled “Kid’s Corner” on the home page of the blog.
