Food Review – Silk Yogurt

A few weeks ago, I was asked to try out the new Silk Yogurt. It’s made with almond milk, making it safe for people who are lactose intolerant or just want to avoid milk. I love the taste of Silk Almond Milk, and get a lot to make lattes & smoothies. When I heard that they were making a yogurt, I was very excited to try it. First, I want to note that I had a hard time finding a store that had this. A lot of stores aren’t carrying it yet, so I had to really drive around to find some. The … [Read more...]

The protein powder is made with BioPure Green TeaTM , a natural extract that helps women loose three times the weight versus dieting alone, and gives you 20 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber per day.

Product Review – SmarterBaking Non-Stick Silicone Baking Mat

A few weeks ago, I was sent a SmarterBaking Non-Stick Silicone Baking Mat to test out and review. The baking mat is 16 5/8 x 11 inches (half-sheet size) and can be used in a wide temperature range (-40 to 480 degrees F). You can put any food item on it, be it cookies or meat, and nothing will stick to it. I have never used a silicone baking mat before. I typically bathe my cookies sheets in non-stick spray, and pretty much hope for the best. The majority of the time, the edges are burned and … [Read more...]

The app also has a coffee glossary, a blend archive of all the blends recommended for you, a blending tool that shows you how to create a custom blend from the bulk coffee at the supermarket, and much more.

Product Review – French Press from Kitchen Supreme

A few weeks ago, I was asked to try out & review a French Press from Kitchen Supreme. The French Press is glass & chrome, and is good for tea and coffee. It comes with a coffee scoop, 4 extra filter screens, a Unique Spoon (bent to sit on the cup rim), and instructions. I actually picked up a box of Lipton Loose Leaf Tea from the grocery store to try out with this. To start, placed a scoop & a half of tea in the French Press. I then heated up water in my tea kettle. I took it off … [Read more...]

Product Review – DK BBQ Grill Mats

A few weeks back, I was asked to try out a set of two DK BBQ Grill Mats by Diamond Kitchen. The grill mats are 15.75" x 19.7", non-stick, and can be used over and over again without being replaced. You can cook all of your typical grill food, plus other stuff like eggs, bacon, and veggies. The mats arrived in a skinny box with no instructions on temperature limits or any other info about them. Just two very large mats rolled up. We have a charcoal smoker grill, so we were very leery about … [Read more...]

Product Review – Smoked Spanish Paprika

A few weeks back, I was sent two types of Smoked Spanish Paprika from Kiva: Hot and Sweet. Kiva carries a wide range of food from around the world. All of their items are sourced directly from local farmers that are eco-friendly. Both of these paprika flavors are made in small batches, and can be used in a wide range of dishes. I have a few recipes that call for smoked paprika and never really thought that there was a difference in taste between it and regular. I was really surprised by the … [Read more...]

Product Review – Organic Ceremonial Grade Green Tea Matcha

A few weeks back, I was asked to try out and review Organic Ceremonial Grade Green Tea Matcha from Kiss Me Organics. The ceremonial grade tea has a vibrant green color, slightly sweet flavor and smooth finish. It has 137 times the antioxidants of brewed green tea, and is a mood enhancer. It also helps mental focus. I normally have review like this done a lot quicker, but it got lost in the Christmas shuffle. I also wanted to use the milk frother (review coming shortly) with it as well before … [Read more...]
