Steamy Kitchen Update 03/04/20

Happy Wednesday!

I found it! I thought I had lost my smoking gun during the move. But it was tucked waaaay in the back corner behind the blender that I never use.

The smoking gun is THE MOST fun kitchen gadget ever. This little thing can infuse smoke into any food….ribs, store-bought rotisserie chicken, roasted whole mushrooms (I did that this weekend), and even make Smoked Bloody Marys.

In my review, we smoked popcorn, sea salt and olives. This past weekend, we had friends over who are vegan, so I roasted whole mushrooms (tossed in olive oil, sprinkled some Italian herb seasoning, roasted 425F for 20 minutes, then used the smoking gun.)

Read my review (and of course I’m giving one away)


A couple months ago, I bought a BIG lot of beautiful jewelry by the brand Effy. This brand is sold at Macy’s, Sears, Sak’s Off Fifth and Nordstrom Rack.

I negotiated to buy the entire lot at below wholesale pricing so that I could start an online jewelry store and pass on the massive discounts to you. The pieces are authentic, still have the original Effy tags attached. I’ll be offering the pieces at a 70% discount. Yes…that’s SEVENTY PERCENT OFF retail prices. The jewelry was purchased directly from Sears, Roebuck & Co. in Las Vegas as they were liquidating their inventory to close one of their Vegas location.

The jewelry is gorgeous. Lots of diamonds, opals, emeralds, sapphire and rubies. Here’s a few pieces. I have 120 pieces, and only one of each design.

Are you interested in jewelry at 70% off? Let me know if you’d like to be notified the moment we launch the store! Just click here…AND you’ll be entered to win a $375 Diamond Heart Necklace! (if you’ve already entered last week….you are all set! Just one entry per person.)
