The Ultimate Reusable Shopping Bag: Baggu Review

The Ultimate Reusable Shopping Bag: Baggu Review

I’ve been collecting reusable shopping bags for quite a while. I’ve used them at Aldi’s for years and I used them everywhere in DC last summer because you get charged in the district for plastic bags. Now that we’re settled in Alexandria, I’ve been using them everywhere once again. They don’t charge for plastic bags in Virginia, but everyone here is very conscious of recycling and it’s just plain easier when you’re walking. Plastic bags aren’t very big and they aren’t…

Tiny Kitchen Tools: Oster Pro™ 1200 Blender & Food Processor

Tiny Kitchen Tools: Oster Pro™ 1200 Blender & Food Processor

I’m a bit of a kitchen appliance hoarder. When I found out that we were moving to DC, I knew I’d need to start weeding out some appliances. I had a HUGE ninja blender with two separate blender attachments and a old cusiniart food processor that was also ginormous. I wasn’t crazy happy with the ninja and decided to go ahead and start searching for a smaller blender and food processor. I wanted a combination blender/food processor unit, but they…

Two Months Later: The Martha Stewart Dutch Oven

Two Months Later: The Martha Stewart Dutch Oven

A few months ago I picked up a new Martha Stewart Dutch Oven. I had been rocking the 5 qt. Calphalon Signature Dutch Oven for over a year and I was ready for an upgrade. The calphalon pot has taken it’s fair share of abuse, I was using it for almost every meal. It was a good pot, but it didn’t really heat evenly and didn’t have that heavy bottom you look for in dutch ovens. I had read a…

Product Review: goldtoe holiday socks

Product Review: goldtoe holiday socks

I was given the opportunity to review Goldtoe’s Holiday sock line this season. Of course I said yes. Who doesn’t love holiday socks? I’m not normally a big sock person – I tend to buy no-show plan white ones to wear for winter. I have to say, after trying out these fun socks, I am all aboard the crew sock train. As far as design goes, I LOVE what Goldtoe has done. There holiday socks are festive, but not cheesy….

All Dogs Should Come with Handles: PetSafe Easy Sport Harness Review

All Dogs Should Come with Handles: PetSafe Easy Sport Harness Review

For those of you who know Kidd, you are aware that he can be a bit of a handful. He is a pointer mix and is an absolute bundle of energy. We adopted him at the beginning of last month when he was already three. He’s the sweetest thing in the world, but unfortunately he’s developed some bad habits. He still jumps and pulls on a leash and occasionally mouths people when he wants to play. Because of this and…

Product Review: Doggie Drinklets

Product Review: Doggie Drinklets

I’ve been on the hunt for some portable dog bowls for a while now. I wanted one to take with us jogging, but every one that I found was too clunky. I hate holding things when I run, so I was not too fond of the idea of carting a bowl around with me on my jog. I finally stumbled across they little beauties on amazon. They are called Doggie Drinklets and they are amazing. It’s just under $10 for a…
