#MarkyProducts Herb Scissors- Perfect for every Cook

I love to cook with fresh herbs and always grow my own.   During the winter I grow indoors, but in the summer I have an abundance of herbs growing around my home.  I grow mint, oregano, basil, thyme and more.
These herb scissors are a must have for my kitchen.  They are super sharp and easy to grab for adding my fresh herbs to my dishes.
I use a lot of basil for fresh home made lasagna and pizza.  These scissors are perfect for cutting up my basil on top of my dishes.
The enclosed blade cleaner makes it so easy to remove my cut up herbs, and the scissors are easy to clean.  The stainless steel blade never rusts and the scissors come with a warranty.
They are available for purchase on Amazon and a great addition to any kitchen.

Dusclosure: I received this product to review for free or discount price for my personal opinion.

Single Cup Club for Coffee Lovers @usfg

I love coffee and using my Kcup brewer, and I love exploring new coffees from all over the world.
The Single Cup Club is a coffee club that sends you 3 new varieties of coffee each month.  You receive 5 of each coffee.  The varieties are both flavored and unflavored coffees and range from light to dark.
I look forward to receiving my monthly box.  I have  tried many coffees that I have never heard of before and they are all very good.

As you can see I tried a couple of coffees from my newest shipment.  
My adult son enjoys sampling the coffees as well.  By trying new varieties, I am opening myself up to new adventures and I never realized how many great blends of coffee are out there in this great big world of ours.  
I never would have known about any of these artisan blends had it not been for the single cup club.
The single cup club makes a great gift for any coffee lover.
Shipping is always free for US members.

A Way To a Man's Heart is Through his Stomach - Valentine Ziti Recipe

I don't know about you, but my husband could care less about presents for Valentine's Day.  But one thing he does love is my baked ziti.

This recipe is simple and is a great way for me to say I love you this Valentine's day.

Quick tip:  I use a rectagular foil tray to make my ziti and just toss it in recycles when I am done.  Saves me clean up time.

Here is the recipe:

1 lb. ziti cooked "al dente"  (any brand)
2 jars of spaghetti sauce (make sure they are over 20 oz.)  ( I use Prego Heart Smart)  or you can use homemade sauce.
2 lbs ground beef browned and drained
15 oz. Ricotta cheese (any brand or type, I use part skim)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
(optional: 1/3 cup parmesan cheese)

Mix the sauce with the browned ground beef and heat
In a seperate bowl mix all cheeses together
Combine ziti, meat sauce and cheese together in a large baking dish or foil tray
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes.


This freezes great and refrigerates well.

Kitchen Bitz Lemon Squeezer #foodie #cocktails #kitchen

I received the Kitchen Bitz Lemon Squeezer to review and was happy with the results.

The squeezer is a nice weight and had a unique design that made it very comfortable to use.  It has a non stick grip on both handles that make holding it and squeezing it easier than other lemon squeezers I have used.  It is also designed to keep pits from being extracted when squeezed and sure enough I did not get 1 seed in my liquid.

I like the weight of the squeezer.  It isn't light and flimsy.  It is a nice sturdy weight that is made from die-cast aluminum and is easy to clean.

This lemon squeezer makes a great addition to my kitchen.

Manufacturers Notes:
NON-SLIP GRIP - the comfortable rubber grip on the handles of this lemon squeezer make it easy to use - your hands won't slip making it suitable for home and professional kitchens and barsHEAVY DUTY AND DURABLE - made from die-cast aluminium that will never rust, with a non-stick food grade finish, these premium quality citrus squeezers w…
