Mrs Thinster’s

cookie trio

Mrs Thinsters are a super fun and thin cookie snack. The cookies are non-GMO, RBGH-free, contain no corn syrups, no artificial colors or flavors.

The 3 flavors which are currently available are:

  • Brownie Batter
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Cake Batter

cookieI love each and every cookie flavor, but if you twisted my arm to pick a favorite I’d say Cake Batter. It has such a natural batter/sugar/sweetness.  I have a hard time remembering not eating the whole bag in one sitting! Super addictive, which I admire in a cookie.



Party-Tizer’s Dippin’ Chips

Graze Subscription Box Review

Graze Subscription Box Review

Take-out is a vice of most people; the convenience of delicious food delivered, ready made, to your door it just too difficult to resist sometimes. At least now you can get cheap delivery meals that are healthy, for those lazy days when you don’t want to fall off the wagon. Also in the world of food delivery, subscription boxes are so hot right now. Services like food delivery have become this massive industry for people to love and use, utilizing things such as courier software to help customers and food services alike to keep track of what they need to has been a staple in getting businesses like this up and running. There are boxes for every person and every lifestyle. One thing all people have in common no matter their gender, lifestyle, age or economical status, we all love to snack! Food is the common ground we bond over as people. Snacking and grazing thoughout the day is not only common but encouraged. It’s a known fact that eating small meals throughout the day, and healthy snack like nuts and fruit, can help you maintain your weight or lose weight.

In fact, well-planned weight-loss diets, such as the Mayo Clinic Diet, allow for healthy snacks to help manage hunger and reduce bingeing at mealtime. The key is to eat healthy snacks that satisfy your hunger and keep the calorie count low. – The Mayo Clinic

A perfect way to get snacking and to keep it healthy is to sign up for a subscription to Graze. Graze is available to the US and UK. Graze can arrive weekly or once every 2 weeks. You will receive 4 snacks in a box, or 8 in a box, depending on the plan you choose. For those who want to share a box but still want a fair serving there is the Sharing Box. There are a few special box plans available: SugarCount where each snack contains less then 5 grams of sugar each, the Sweet Treats box which satrifies those with a sweet tooth, the Savory Box for the savory fans, and the CalorieCount where each individual snack pack is less than 150 calories each.

I received 3 boxes to test Graze’s subscription service. I can say without a doubt that I would recommend this service to everyone I know. Every feature about this service is to be commended. Firstly, you receive your box in your mailbox, so you don’t have to worry about missing the delivery person and not signing for it. Secondly, it comes in an amazing recyclable package.

We’re really proud of our graze box. The cardboard is really strong, so it’s great at looking after your snacks and we use as little material as possible (compare it to a normal cardboard box and you’ll see what we mean). Our thin cardboard comes from sustainable forests and is 100% recyclable.

Please recycle with your other paper and cardboard. – Graze.com

Graze also makes sure it only uses the highest quality ingredients. If you are looking for real food, you can trust in Graze.

We are always on the hunt for the tastiest ingredients – from the Keitt mango we have picked for its vibrant colour and sweet juicy flesh to our Chilean jumbo flame raisins (we tried 29 varieties of raisin before the jumbo flame got the nod).

The hunt for juicier, crunchier, tastier and fresher ingredients is never ending. – Graze.com

At Graze they are constantly adding new foods and snacks into the mix. So if you instantly fall in love, have no fear that you will start lemonto get the same old box (even thought they are all so amazing that you want seconds). They have over a 100 options. You help them pick your snacks by guiding them based on what you like and dislike. I loved every snack I received. My favorite was the “lemon drizzle flapjack” (see picture to the right). It was sweet, soft, filling, and everything you hope for in that 2pm snack.

Some of there newest snack options are:


dark lemon zesty

Each box comes with coupons you can use for yourself and to pass on to your family, friends, colleges or even your boss (you brown noser you). More importantly it includes a full nutritional sheet along with all ingredients. My favorite part is the expiration date! They even included that for us. Super thoughtful and just thinking ahead of the game.

On the packaging there are small symbols giving you additional information about your snack. Some examples are: “Only 80 Calolories”, “P” (good source of protein), ‘star symbol’ which signifies its a nutritionist’s pick. All symbols are can be decoded by visiting the website Graze.com and browsing their snacks. By hoovering your mouse over the symbols a drop down box will occur, showing you in greater detail what the symbol imply.

Now that you have read about how amazing Graze.com Subscription Boxes are, you have a chance to win a 3 box subscription!

System Knife Sharpener – Review

Knife Sharpener DragSys

System Knife Sharpener

As a home cook I am always looking for ways to sharpen my techniques and skills. Now I found a super-easy way to sharpen my knives too (okay okay that was beyond stupid and cheesy just soak in the awkwardness)! I was recently asked to review System Knife Sharpener from DragSys.

This particular system is to be used for kitchen knives, fruit knives, hunting knives, etc. I usually take my knives to a mobile sharpening company and that has worked really well for me over the years. GoSharpening.com is a mobile knife sharpening in NYC and it’s similar to the local company I use. I wanted to try a system knife sharpener for a change, so here are my thoughts.

It has a suction cup design, which is safer and convenient, and ideal for one handed sharpening. It has 2 stages for coarse and fine-sharpening. It features a unique sharpening wheel design that is convenient to sharpen back and forth.

Instructions for stainless steel knives:

Step 1: Course Sharpening

Suitable for blunt knives. Place the Vertoku knives in the sharpening slot. Using slight downward pressure, run the blade from its heel to its point though the slot. Repeat three to five times. Sharpen tools every six months or when necessary.

Step 2: Fine Honing

This is a necessary step used to eliminate burrs on a knife and to polish it. Place a knife in the sharpening slot. Using slight downward pressure run the blade from its heel to its point through the slot. Repeat three to five times. Normally, it is recommended to sharpen a knife once a week to keep your blade sharp at all times.


Please keep in mind that this sharpener isn’t suitable for serrated bladed and scissors. This sharpener can also be used for ceramic knives, but only for coarse sharpening (step 1). Do not put this sharpener in the dishwasher and always keep it away from children’s reach.

Why Ohio? Things to do in Ohio

Are you looking for things to do in Ohio?

Then you have come to the right place. Ohio is such a beautiful and family-oriented state. I moved here approximately 15 years ago. Before living here my honest opinion of Ohio was, “it has a lot of hills and colleges.” That’s it. End of my brain energy on Ohio. Now I see Ohio for that it really is. A beautiful state filled with rolling hillsides, open country, booming cities, strong small business growth (with some even managing to begin investing in marketing experts for tree care providers, to name but one example of how far their reach has grown), and more than you can imagine doing. For those that are planning on moving here, a word of advice, make sure you have all your important documents and needs sorted before you move to your new home, you don’t want to get there and a disaster happen to find out you’re not fully covered yet. There are companies such as First American Home Warranty that deal with Ohio housing needs in this area, to make sure your belongings are safe within your home.
