Ice Wabanga Ice Pop Molds


I have been playing with this ice pop maker by IceWabanga. They are so easy to use and they click in place to make sure they stay standing.This set comes with two silicone tube ice pop makers to double the fun.

The ice pops freeze pretty quickly. I can make plain juice ones in just a few hours. The cream and berry ones take a little longer.

Mattress Warranties



Did you know mattress warranties are void if they are DIRTY? This is insane to me since so many accidents can happen.

- spill a drink
- bedwetting
- sweating at night
- menstruation
- dust and dirt from LIVING in your home
- etc

Why is the fact it is dirty an issue with shoddy workmanship or a defect? It is to the warranty company.The best defense is an offense.

Buy covers for your mattresses like this cover from Mellanni.

http://www.amazon.com/Mellanni-Premium-Waterproof-Mattress-Protector/dp/B00X59R3CQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=bedbath&ie=UTF8&qid=1459815612&sr=1-1&keywords=mattress+protector&refinements=p_89%3AMellanni
This cover is soft and not plasticy and crinkly so it won't make you sweat or keep you up at night.It fits deep pocket matresses and stays put.

Keep your boxspring in the plastic or cover it too! Keep your matresses clean so your warranty stays intact.

A mattress cover protects from dust mites and other issues too.

The Handy Mat, Is it Handy?


I was asked to check out the Handy Mat a very cool picnic mat.This is a thick mat that made to hold cold items or to serve as a clean eating area.



They are plastic board and fold up for easy storage.They arrive in a large Ziplock bag that I am using as storage for ours.


They resist stains from mustard , ketchup , and other staining foods.They wipe off easily with a damp cloth and I had no staining or discoloration on ours.We used these at a recent BBQ and it was easy to transport and use. I would suggest these for any BBQ.They worked great as a "station" for condiments and paperware for us.It helped everyone return the items to the right area!

O-Sip The Best Sippy Around



As a parent of teens and adults, my days of a cabinet full of sippy cups are over.We haven't had them in the cabinet in 8 or 9 years.Crazy since it seems like it was just yesterday we had them coming out of our ears.

This leads to a new problem.We now have grandchildren and while I am happy to have a few cups on hand I really do not remember where they are or remember to grab them when we run out someplace.This is why I was super excited totry the O-Sip Silicone lids! These are awesome.Seriously , I wish I had them years ago.They fit most cups.Who am I kidding they fit any cup that you would hand a toddler.They do not fit a Big Gulp. I know I know who would give one to a toddler.No one , but my oldest grandchild is 8 so old enough for a super size slush.It says it fits a cup  2.5-3.75 inches , but I stretched it to fit a bit bigger cup.


They stretch and stay put.I literally tossed it around to see.My grandson put it through some pretty crazy testing too.I keep one in a ziplock in the car now at all times and sometimes 2 or three.They are great when you go out to eat or for extra protection in the car.The flow is not intended for a baby since it is rather fast. My grandson is 4 and has choked slightly when drinking too fast from them. They are silicone so check often for cracks or tears since those can present a choking issue.


The kids love them and the price is great at around $15 for three lids.

Red, Blue , and Green Set.

Steaming Veggies

I am trying to eat healthier and that includes steaming veggies.I love steamed veggies and was excited to be asked to review the Laminas  Silicone Vegetable Steamer.


Steamer Tips-

- Toss with lemon and oil before steaming

- Add vinegar , sauces , or broth to the steaming water

- Lightly Sear veggies or fish before steaming

- Cut the stalks of your veggies for faster cook times

- Spread the veggies evenly in steamer basket

This silicone steamer is easy to use just place in the top of a sauce pan of water. The steam from the broth or water cooks the veggies.You can also steam fish and seafood.This is a great way to keep the minerals and vitamins in your food.


The Laminas Silicone Veggie Steamer is made of high quality silicone and made to last for years.It is dishwasher safe and is safe for up to 600 degrees.The silicone stays cool to the touch.Steam may remain on the steamer so I suggest an oven mitt or tea towel for kitchen safety.Please use a bowl or plate to sit the steamer on to prevent hot water from dripping on you or other surfaces.




I received this free to share with my readers.I do not receive any money if you purchase this steamer.
