Moscow Mule Copper Mugs Review

The Moscow Mule Mug is a beautiful 100% copper mug with a handcrafted hammered finish.
The mug holds 16oz. of your favorite beverage.
What is a Moscow Mule?
A Moscow Mule is a drink that was invented in 1941 by John A Morgan, John G Martin and Rudolph Kunett.
Here is the recipe:
1-1/2 to 2 oz. vodka 1/2 oz. lime juice 4 to 6 oz. ginger beer ice cubes lime wedge
Here is how to prepare it:
1. squeeze lime juice into the Moscow Mule Mug 2.  add ice cubes (2 or 3) 3, Pour in vodka 4. Fill with cold ginger beer 5. Garnish with lime and a stirring stick

I think any beverage would be great in the Moscow Mule Mug.  They are beautifully handcrafted and the perfect size.  I love how the mug shines.  I love handcrafted and unique items and this mug is both.

These beautiful mugs would make any table landscape amazing.
The Moscow Mule Mug by Kitchen Concepts is available on Amazon.

Disclosure:  I received this mug to review from Tomoson for my honest opinion.

How to Make Scented Bath Salts with Insta Natural Essential Oils

The bottle size is generous and has a convenient dropper for measuring.
Insta Natural Essential Oils are available on Amazon and their website.
I love using essential oils in homemade items and gifts.  I decided that I was going to make some Peppermint Scented Bath Salts to give as gifts  to the hostesses of St Patrick's day parties that I am going to be attending.

The supplies needed are:
Epsom Salt Sea Salt Baking Soda Food Coloring InstaNatural Essential Oils Metal Bowl Measuring Cup Decorative Jar Ribbon

Serendiplicity Pastry & Basting Brushes Review & #Savings

The SERENDIPlicity Pastry & Basting brushes are very nice quality brushes.  They are made with a very nice sterdy handle with hanging hole and silicone bristles.

The bristles are nice because they withstand heat, keep their shape, glide nicely over pastries and meats.

I like that these brushes come in a set of 2 to allow me to use separate sauces, oils, butter etc while grilling or cooking.

The colors vary for these brushes.  The colors available are Green, Blue, Red and Yellow.

SafeT Gloves Review #Foodie

The SafeT gloves are silicone gloves that are heat resistant up to 425 degrees.  They are very flexible and easy to clean.   They are waterproof so will protect against boiling water.  You will receive 2 gloves when you order them.  I like that.  A lot of times when you see this type of product sold you only receive one.

I like the texture on the gloves which makes it easier for me to grip my pans and casserole dishes. This makes me feel more security when I am handling hot items.

These gloves are FDA Approved and BPA Free.  They are a nice size glove that would fit almost anyone in your household.  They are pretty long and cover your wrist area.

These are great for anything heat related:

Taking hot foods out of the oven
Putting wood on the fire
Picking up hot meats
Pulling pork, chicken, fish
Great for campsites

Fun Facts about #February

Did you know that the Romans and Celts regarded February as the start of Spring?  Well it surely doesn't seem like Spring around here.  As a matter of fact I don't recall such a cold Winter in a long time.

Weather-lore beliefs and sayings of February:

If February give much snow.
A Fine Summer it doth foreshow,

Let's hope that belief holds true.

Here are some fun facts I found online about the month of February from Folklore and Tradtions:

February, along with the month of January was introduced on the Roman calendar by Numa Pompilous when the calendar was extended from 10 to 12 months.

Numa Pompilius was the legendary second king of Rome, succeeding Romulus

The word February comes from the word Februa which means cleansing or purification, which reflects the rituals performed before Spring.

Other names for February:

Anglo Saxons called Februar
