Bella Pressure Cooker Review & Giveaway

Bella Pressure Cooker Review

During the summers, our pressure cooker gets more use – the Vegas heat discourages much stovetop and oven cooking. I mostly use the pressure cooker to make healthy, clear, light Asian-style broths that we drink warm, not hot. I also discovered how to make perfect mashed sweet potatoes.

We spent a week testing . . .

Chopped Champion Cleaver Review & Giveaway

Chopped Champion Cleaver Review

The very first cooking show that I saw was Martin Yan’s Yan Can Cook on PBS. Martin was my idol! His mad chopping skills was entertainment, I loved how he smashed garlic with just one SMACK! of his Chinese cleaver.

SteakChamps Steak Knives Review
Prior to meeting my husband, I used the cheapy steak knives that came in my block of 12 knives I bought on sale at Macy’s. I wasn’t a big griller then, as I was living in San Francisco and my patio balcony was old and brittle. We didn’t dare set more than . . .

Now that we’re in Las Vegas, living the . . .

PubWare Unbreakable Glass Review & Giveaway

pubWare Review

pubWARE specializes in “synthetic glass”, glassware the feels like glass, looks like glass, but is unbreakable. It’s ideal not just for bars and restaurants, but at-home everyday use, especially those who like outdoor entertaining.

In just the past 6 years, we’ve replaced our stemware three times. We’re clumsy, we eat outside by the pool . . .

Slingbox M2 Review & Giveaway

Between housework, school schedules, work, travel, and kids’ sports activities, I actually spend very little time in front of my television. Each month, when the cable bill comes in, I cringe because I know I’m not using what I’m paying for.

Last year, I purchased a Slingbox to help solve the problem. The Slingbox allows me . . .

Apple Watch, iPad, iPhone Charging Stand

We’re a big Apple family (we regularly feature iPad and Apple Watch giveaways!), but one of our biggest complaints about having so many different devices is the tangle of charging cables.
