Pizzacraft Round Glazed Pizza Stone with Handles

  Another great gift idea for the pizza lover in your life (or for yourself if you love pizza as much as I do).  The Pizzacraft Round Glazed Pizza Stone with Handles will leave yourself asking why you never owned one of these before.  

  Mommy in GA:
Ok I try to reserve my OMG moments for those really great moments in life!!! Let me just say

This Pizzastone is AMAZING!!!!!!! I am not sure how I functioned before owning one of these!!!!

Ok the above picture is of my new FAVORITE kitchen item!!The pizza stone........ now I know it is called a pizza stone but......I have used this bad boy for MANY things!!! 
Pizza (obviously!!)
pig in a blankets (hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls)
bagel bites
those are just a few things off the top of my head and I have not had this stuff for very long!!

  The picture above is of my first homemade pizza with my pizza stone (I have been going through some stuff this pregnancy so I did not get to try this pizza BUT, the kids said it was AWESOME!!!)
It looked and smelled AMAZING for the record!

Super easy to clean no soap required (seriously!!!Do NOT use soap!!!) the flavors soak right into the pizzastone!!!

As for anyone in your life that may say oh something else you don't need.........The same thing happened to me and now when I am cooking I get asked," why not use the pizza stone??"

Holiday Gift Guide - Kitchen Helper - My Pain Away After Burn Cream

My Pain Away After Burn Cream

  Ok so baking during the holidays is a big deal for both our families.  Whether it's cookies, pies, or dinner rolls we all bake our fair share.  There is one thing that makes the whole experience a little annoying...burns.  It never fails, everything is going great, and next thing you know you are bumping your arm off the edge of the oven...that is if you even remembered to put on your oven mitt...LOL!

  Well the people over at Topical BioMedics have incorporated one of our favorite products (Topricin) into My Pain Away After Burn Cream that works for sunburn, wind burn, blisters, chaffing, itchy skin, scar healing, and you guessed it...oven burns : )

  As with the Topricin we reviewed, this product is also homeopathic so no need to worry about scary ingredients or using it too much.  It is also Diabetic-friendly.  

  How it works is by helping the body remove all the excess toxins and fluids at the injured area which in turn allows the oxygen and nutrients to flow back into the cells.  

  3 Percent of all sales of the Burn Cream are being donated to burn centers.  

  Mommy in GA: We LOVE homeopathic products in my house!!! You never know what you are putting on yourself or your kids when they have harsh chemicals :(

As for it being a burn cream, Hello you are right down my ally!!

I work in a school cafeteria so I burn myself a lot at work and at home!!!
I have used the after burn cream several times and it works great every time,  It pulls the burn out every time and almost instantly!

  Mommy in PA:  We are always excited to try out new products and always more so when we get to try out a new product from a company that we already love : )  

The very first test we used this product for was sunburn.  We had been out at the flea market for two days and my daughter had forgotten to apply sunblock to her arms : (  Needless to say she got a little burnt but no worries the After Burn Cream saved the day.  This is the first burn cream we have tried that worked in relieving the pain right away and helping to heal the sunburn quickly.  She put it on in the evening and by morning the redness had all but disappeared.  

The next test was the dreaded stove burn...she had been making some mac n cheese (noticing a trend here yet...don't worry, she's old enough to operate the stove by herself LOL) and had brushed her arm up against the pan.  My Pain Away After Burn Cream to the rescue again.  We don't even bother reaching for anything else at this point : )  

I haven't tried it for scar reduction yet but plan on doing so soon.  I really just wanted to make sure we had enough for burn treatment at this point : )

This is another one of those products that will be in our house for many years to come.  It is so great not having to worry that you are applying something too much or what terrible side effect it could be having on your loved ones.  Thanks again Topical BioMedics for another great product!

Holiday Gift Guide Gift Idea - Charcoal Companion Himalayan Salt Plates

disclaimer:  I received the product below for free in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

  Charcoal Companion Himalayan Salt Plates

    Are you looking for a unique holiday gift for the foodie in your family?  Are you wanting to add a little bit of elegance to a special holiday dinner?  Well you don't have to look any more thanks to Charcoal Companion Himalayan Salt Plates.

  These Himalayan salt plates can be used for serving meals on or cooking meals on your stove top or grill.  They can also be placed in your freezer for serving cold desserts or sushi.

  Mommy in PA:  I loved the fact that these came in a four pack that can be either used as one cooking/serving surface or divided up and used individually.  We chose to use them individually as serving plates for a meal consisting of venison steak and parsley potatoes (My son decided to have homemade french fries on his).  With there being four of us this worked out just right.  

  The first thing I noticed with these was how heavy they are.  So if you do decide to get these just be prepared that the package will weigh a lot more than you expect : )  After opening the package I was utterly amazed at how beautiful these are and how unique each one looked (everyone got to pick out which one they wanted to use and it was easy to keep track).  

 I was so excited to plate these up!  Just look at how gorgeous they turned out.  I am no professional but this sure did make my meal look more like it came out of a fancy restaurant : )

  One of the wonderful benefits of the salt plates is the fact that there is no need to salt the food you are serving as the salt is the plate itself.  We were all a little skeptical as my hubby and son love their salt and we were thinking that it wouldn't be enough salt flavor.  Well needless to say, nobody was reaching for the salt shakers during dinner : )  My daughter even tested a little further by taking a bite of her food that hadn't touched the salt plate and then one that had and said that it made a huge difference.  

  It is super easy to clean these too thanks to the fact that salt is a natural germ buster.  Just scrub them down with warm water to get off all of the food residue and oils and then just dry them very well.  Do Not Soak! 

  Great product that we will be using time and time again : )

  The holidays are quickly approaching.  And what does that mean?  Holiday weight gain...yuck!!!  Well we could all just drink water and lose a lot of extra calories but if you're like me plain water seems just a little too boring for the palate.  

  Here's where SweetLeaf steps in.  With their SweetLeaf Water Drops you can choose one of four flavors to enhance your water drinking experience.  The flavors are Raspberry Lemonade, Strawberry Kiwi, Peach Mango, and Lemon Lime.  

  The SweetLeaf Water Drops contain zero calories, zero carbs (great for the diabetics), no sugar, and no artificial sweeteners.  In place of the artificial sweeteners they use Stevia.  

  Mommy in PA:  My family and I got a chance to try all four flavors of the SweetLeaf Water Drops and here is what we thought:  

  I was excited to be trying these as my son is a Type 1 Diabetic and we are always looking for ways to cut down on carbs.  My son didn't really care for any of these flavors but we are hoping that they will come out with more flavors soon : )  On a side note:  With these not containing any of the normal artificial sweeteners that my son is used to I believe that is why he wasn't a fan, as most of you know the artificial sweeteners have a certain aftertaste that I believe people just get used to tasting.  

  My daughter really loved the Lemon Lime and we were out of it in no time.  I don't think she wanted to share LOL!

  My mother seemed to enjoy the Peach Mango ones the best.

  I personally thought the Strawberry Kiwi was pretty good but none of us were fans of the Raspberry Lemonade.

  Another thing that I totally loved about these is the fact that they are clear.  So not only is this great for schools where kids are only allowed to bring in clear beverages but also great at preventing a colored mouth as I know all too well from some of the drink sticks we've tried in the past.  

  These are a great addition to the selection of water drops currently available : )
