Green Earth Wok by Ozeri

As a member of the group the Pitch List, I received a 12″ Green Earth Wok by Ozeri to review. I was looking to buy a wok but just hadn’t seen what I wanted. This wok is amazing. It is everything I was looking for and more.
I used this wok to prepare our dinner. I decided to stir fry some vegetables. I have six grown children not at home but haven’t quite learned how to scale down my cooking to two. So of course I made too much.
I filled the pan with the fresh vegetables.The heat distributed evenly in the pan. That made it so easy to cook this many vegetables to just the perfect consistency.  I like my vegetables on the well done side.

When I finished the vegetables, I removed them from the pan and took a paper towel to wipe the pan out. It was so easy. I decided to prepare a new recipe I had for Asian steak with sesame seed.
I browned the meat and set it aside. I added the mixture to make the sauce. Nothing sticks in this pan. The meal turned out perfectly.

I took the pan to the sink, rinsed it and wiped it out with a sponge. Nothing else was needed. The food even wiped off of the outside easily.
I would recommend this product to anyone. It is wonderful. I like the idea that they use natural ceramic as a coating. Almost all non-stick pans contain PFOA, PTFE and other harmful chemicals. But even at high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes will ever be released into the environment from this wok.
I was also impressed that this wok is oven-safe to 356 degrees Fahrenheit.

ReUsies Snack and Sandwich Bags

ReUsies Snack and Sandwich Bags
I received ReUsies snack and sandwich bags to review. As an avid zippered bag user, these were a nice alternative.

The pattern is so cute. I love how bright they are. The insides are line and use a velcro fastener to close them securely.

See the cute pattern!!! I love it.

You can see how neatly these are made. ReUsies are 100% cotton lined with leak resistant nylon. The velcro fasteners hold them tight. I received one sandwich size one and one snack sized one. These are the two sizes I use most.

I took a sandwich with me when I went for a walk. I love walking along the bay where I live. And my favorite part is stopping to people watch. I reached into my bag and got out my sandwich. It was still secure and in one piece. And it tasted as fresh as when I use my zippered bags.

But then I got the great idea to use it for my crafts. I crochet for my Etsy shop and I carry around yarn and my tools to complete my projects. This bag was perfect. And it is just too cute!!! Works out so well for me.

I decided to wash one and see how it held up. It came out perfectly. They are so easy to clean. I will save money by using these ReUsies instead of plastic bags. I think we have to start considering the environment more. I look at it this way. Throwing away one plastic bag makes a difference. If everyone on earth throws one bag away, the pile of debris would be enormous. We can all make a difference. REUSE. These are perfect.

I am offering a set of these ReUsies to one of my readers. This giveaway is open to the U.S. only. You will love these wonderful bags.

Farmer’s Market

Farmer’s Market
Today, my boyfriend Jake and I went to the Farmer’s Market. It is a small gathering of local people selling their fresh produce and foods. It is usually crowded but I love the atmosphere. The town that hosts this event is just a laid-back town. If it were a different decade, I would call it a hippie town. Young people dress casually and interact with the vendors and each other in perfect harmony. And there are many people that have dogs with them. It is a very dog-friendly town.
Organic vegetables are available. These farmers take pride in their produce.
I love the produce. It is beautiful! Nowhere can you find more vibrant and bright colors. You would love the selection. I love the roses.
The flowers were amazing! Buy them by the single flower, bunch, or bouquet.
Avocados are a favorite in California.
And you will love the ripe sweet bright red strawberries. Samples are always available.
The smells of the vendors cooking and serving their food fills the air and makes your mouth water. Making a choice for dinner from the many booths is hard. There are many ethnic foods made right in front of your eyes. The cooks show their pride in their abilities. And the people crowding the front of the booths just shows that the food is good.
In the middle of the market you can see a hostel. Young people are hanging out and watching the crowd. Sometimes you can hear someone singing or playing instruments and sharing their God given gifts.

But one of our favorite foods is the kettle corn. So, of course, we purchased a huge bag to munch on while browsing. Life is good!

Woolzies Review and Giveaway 8/28

      Woolzies Review and Giveaway

http://www.woolzies.com

I know you are supposed to learn something new everyday. I had always used dryer sheets or fabric softener and to be honest with you, I didn’t even know there were other ways to use instead. So when I had a chance to try out some Woolzies, I was interested in a new and green way to save money.

Buying fabric softener sheets over and over again costs a lot.  And they can leave a residue on your clothes. It makes sense to invest in something that you can reuse and works well.

Woolzies bounce around in the dryer softening your clothes and speeding up the drying time. I can see how that would save money on energy. I manage a motel and use the laundry that we have here. I can’t regulate the amount of time that it runs. That would not be an asset for me.

I used the balls and had no static in my laundry. Putting a nice fragrant oil on the balls makes your laundry smell so nice. Just walking past the dryer is nice.

I am allergic to wool and so I was concerned about whether these wool balls would affect my allergies. I am happy to say that I had no reaction to the wool.

These are a nice way to help the environment, save your clothes and save you money.

By the way, my cat got hold of one of the balls, carried it into my living room and enjoyed playing with it long enough for me to take pictures. This picture can also give you some comparison on the size.

Conscious Box Review

I had been on vacation and before I returned home my conscious box arrived. I had never heard of it before now and this was my chance to review it.  I was intrigued. More intrigued was my daughter who was holding down the fort at my house.


I told her to open it and check it out. She loved it! She said that one thing I needed to mention was how good it smelled when she opened it. She said it was amazing!  It smelled like peppermint. She immediately found the can of peppermints that was part of the monthly box. She now wants to know how to get her own!


I explained that it was something that she could receive monthly. Or gift it to someone. She loved the idea. I think she is a new customer already and I haven’t even finished my review of the box myself. So obviously it sells itself.

I never tried aromatherapy products before.  I received an aromatherapy deck. It provides a guide to mixing oils and the benefits from these mixtures.  I am eager to learn more about the ideas this deck provides.  I am definitely a beginner and look forward to unlocking the mysteries of the oils and combinations they suggest. It came with sweet orange oil. Yum!

I loved the tea bags that were included.  Tea parties are a passion of mine.  Sweetener samples were included and I always wanted to try some of these.

Enzyme cleaners for floors.  I even received some eye shadow.  A large variety of items. Environmentally safe.  It was a treasure chest of samples and items that I would probably have never tried on my own.


The box is different each month so you don’t have to be afraid to order for more than one month.  I received the product quickly and look forward to receiving another one to compare it to.  And by the way, my daughters say that the squeezable applesauce is really good.
Next month will be the August ‘Back to School’ Conscious Box!   It’s going to have delicious, nutritious snacks, some  great daily alternatives, and tons of other really fun stuff that everyone will enjoy, making it an AWESOME gift for all students, including K-12 and college.  And yes, it’s great for students and non students alike, so you can gift it to anyone!  I am making my list now to send to. Just remember, you’ve got to order before the 6th of the month! This is the only legitimately healthy care package we’ve seen this year, and they’re going fast!

I am looking forward to the one for next month. Please check back and I will share the next Conscious Box surprise box with you. See you soon.
