Ants In The Cat Food

Every spring, like clockwork, the same thing happens: The weather starts to get warm, ants come inside to explore, and they infest my cat’s food dish. The first year this happened I noticed my cat (dear departed Selma) sitting by her food, staring at it forlornly. When I went over to investigate I didn’t see […]

Tassimo Review By A Coffee Hater

Tassimo T55 At first glance I’m probably an odd choice to review anything having to do with coffee: I hate coffee. Hate the smell, hate the mess the grounds make, hate cleaning out the pot. My husband loves coffee, but usually only drinks it at home on weekends. Still, when Tassimo sent me a Tassimo […]

Fit For Forty: RunPhones

There are only six-and-a-half weeks until the Disney Princess Half Marathon. And while I’ve definitely been slacking off exercise-wise for the past month or so, I’m still very far ahead of where I was at this point before the last two races. Today I did three miles and while it was very hard, it was […]

T-Fal Deep Fryer Review

I’ve been talking a lot about what I’ve been frying so far in my new deep fryer. I posted pictures of my first attempt at veggie tempura (it was awesome), and I wrote a whole post about my three tries at making great French fries. I’ve done hush puppies and even battered bananas (they were […]

Fix A Broken Suitcase Zipper Pull Easily

No matter how much I spend on a suitcase, the sipper pulls always break within a year or two. Such a pain in the butt. After losing both main sipper pulls on my favorite suitcase, I finally decided to try to fix them myself. I found Zippermend on Amazon, and it was so inexpensive I […]

With the WD TV Live Streaming Media Player from […]

Cake Pop Stands from KC Bakes

I’ve been making cake pops for a few months now. They’re fun, easy, and incredibly delicious (and a nice morning treat with my current “dessert with breakfast” diet). But the one thing that bugged me about the whole process was the Styrofoam blocks I was going through. I tried wrapping them in packing tape and […]

The best non-stick pan I’ve ever used in my entire life. Seriously

How’s that for a review headline? It’s not an exaggeration. I’m something of a cookware nut, with a drawer full of expensive pans, including lots of Calphalon One. But I’d never even heard of GreenPan before encountering the company at a gift guide trade show. I didn’t linger at the table too long because, well, […]

The following is a sponsored post.  I wrote the entire post myself based on my own experiences with, and can truthfully and wholeheartedly say that I really like the site and will continue to use it. I do most of my shopping online at this point, everything from shoes to food to batteries to […]

Queen finally comes to Rock Band

I took another visit to the MTV offices in Times Square Monday to play some more Rock Band.  I’ve been a huge fan of Rock Band since my mom bought it for us two Christmases ago (honestly I don’t think I had touched our XBox 360 before that).  It’s something our whole family can do […]
