I had a big scare last December with my heart that caused me to spend the day in the Emergency Room, that has caused me to be more aware of my cardiac health.I was noticing that my heart was racing more frequently, and lasting longer each time. After I woke up for the third day in a row with the heart racing I called my doctor, asking for a same day appointment. They told me they didn’t have any available, and it didn’t matter because you couldn’t request an EKG at a same day appointment. I asked the nurse what I was supposed to do then, and she informed me to just go to the ER. Other than my heart racing I felt fine, so I felt like I was over-reacting going to the Emergency Room.

We are big snackers in our house so when I saw the opportunity to have a chance to review some Cheese Thinables for free, I knew I had to take it.
Cheese Thinables are made by FiberGourmet. FiberGourmet is dedicated to creating reduced-calorie, high-fiber products that taste good and are good for you. Their unique FiberGourmet technology allows them to manufacture pasta, crackers and cakes which taste the same as conventional versions but have 10 times more fiber.

The Earth Pan by Ozeri is perfect for browning ground beef
Recently I was given the oppoutunity to review a 10″ Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri for free, in exchange for an honest review. Tony was excited about this review because our other frying pans weren’t really non–stick anymore, and the Earth Pan by Ozeri features Eterna – a safe and natural non-stick coating that was developed right here in the USA.
This pan is the worlds only stainless steel frying pan to achieve non-stick perfection without using PFOA — a harmful chemical used in all traditional cookware.Conventional pans achieve their non-stick performance with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which the EPA has classified as a ‘persistent pollutant of the environment’.

Tuttorosso will be giving away 3,000 wooden spoons until November 12, 2013 at http://www.facebook.com/tuttorossotomato – to celebrate the nostalgia and heritage of the wooden spoon in so many classic tomato-based recipes (chili, soup, lasagna, manicotti, salsa, etc.). One grand prize winner will receive one Tuttorosso personalized heirloom wooden spoon and a 6-piece signature cookware by La Creuset!
As you may know, or perhaps have experienced, wooden spoons are often handed down from generation to generation — and are the preferred tool by professional chefs since they are soft, won’t scratch, don’t remove heat out of sensitive recipes and have a high heat tolerance.
The Tuttorosso brand is owned by the family-owned Red Gold company. Red Gold has been around since the 1940s and has been focused on growing local in the Midwest where true seasons impact the flavor of tomatoes. The Midwest, while it’s cold in the winter, has the perfect growing season for tomatoes, perfect angle of the sun, perfect temps — and even the winter is perfect for tomatoes, as it breaks up the soil for tiny root systems. Few places in the world can you grow such tomatoes. Continue reading →
