Have You Tried… Air Fryers?

I got an air fryer for Christmas. I’d heard about these oil-less deep fryers but couldn’t believe they worked. I’ve used mine several times now and am sold on it. Before I got my air fryer I had a fry daddy kind of machine I used on those rare occasions when I deep fried things – … Read more

Have You Tried Livionex Toothpaste?

I’ve never gotten excited about toothpaste before, but Livionex has me excited. This amazing toothpaste blasts off plaque – they say it is 2.5 times more effective than other toothpastes and I believe it. After you use it, you feel like you’ve just had your teeth cleaned at the dentist’s office. Your teeth are shiny, … Read more

Piedmontese Beef

While visiting the exciting Whole Foods-like new grocery story in our area, I poked around a bit in the frozen meat section. Although the store had a really fabulous fresh meat section (we bought some bison that was fabulous), there were some choices in the frozen section worth considering. I briefly considered camel burgers, but … Read more

Have You Tried… Bread Cheese?

I picked up a package of Carr Valley Bread Cheese at my grocery store recently ($11.79/lb.). On the package it says it is good dipped in coffee or with jam. Really? I scratched my head at this but gave it a try, mostly because it’s pretty hard to find cheese I won’t eat. The cheese … Read more

Have You Tried…Olive Oil Misto?

I grew up using Pam to spray baking dishes, baking sheets, etc. It’s super convenient and easy to use. However, it has a long list of icky ingredients in it. One of which is silicone. I really don’t want to eat silicone. I’m not a big fan of rubbing sticks of butter on my pans … Read more

Have You Tried….Kind Bars?

I’m not a big granola/snack bar person. And now that I’m gluten-free I am even less interested in this group of food.  However, I’ve found one I really love. You’ll never believe where I heard about Kind bars. I was flipping around the TV and cruised by QVC where I like to check out the … Read more

Have You Tried…Kiwi Berries?

I stumbled upon these in the grocery store. They look like mini kiwis, minus the fuzz. They’re about the size of a big grape. They taste just like a kiwi, without the big seeds. They are very grape-like in texture. They are easier to eat than a kiwi. No peeling. Just pop them in your … Read more

Have You Tried…My Pillow?

Let me first be clear: no one asked me or paid me to write this post and I bought the product myself at full price. I don’t get any kickback and have no relationship with this company other than being a customer. I have been waking up in the morning with a sore neck. A … Read more

Have You Tried…Frozen Yogurt Bars?

Frozen yogurt bars are all the rage. We first tried one on Amelia Island, Florida this winter. We loved it so much we went two nights in a row. If you aren’t familiar, the concept is simple. There is a wall of self-serve soft frozen yogurt machines. You take a cup and put in as … Read more

Have You Tried…Sunchokes?

Sunchokes, also called Jerusalem artichokes, are something I had never tried before. I ran across them in the grocery store recently and brought them home. They look kind of like a round ginger root when raw. I researched how to use them. I ended up quartering them and tossing with olive oil, garlic, and salt … Read more
