The Magic of Sous Vide

I enjoy cooking and learning new methods of making delectable tasty treats.

When I first heard of Sous Vide I was skeptical about how this was all going to work, yet if the finest restaurants used this method, why not the home chef too?



I ended up with a Kitchen Gizmo Sous Vide machine, then the rest I culled from my kitchen such as a pot of water, zipper food baggies and a spring clamp. Add food and cook!

At the market, I searched for discounted must sale meats. I found these huge Dolly Parton chicken breasts so I came home with those as my first test dish. I made a simple homemade teriyaki sauce with Braggs amino acids, honey, ginger, garlic, orange juice and a splash of wine.

Since each breast was jumbo sized, I used two zipper baggies placing one breast half the sauce in each one. I did the water immersion technique to squeeze out the very last bit of air so each baggie would appear to be vacuum sealed. Then I separated them on the side of the pot of water with a spring clamp to hold them in place.

The idea is to let the Sous Vide machine circulate hot water around the food with out the baggies getting sucked into the little aerator pump.

I set the temperature to 145F per the cooking chart and settled on one hour. At the end of the cooking time, I wasn't satisfied with the results, so I added another half hour. These breasts were mammoth! Matter of fact, I used two plates to serve them at the neighborhood potluck garnished with pineapple chunks.

A dozen neighbors tried the teriyaki chicken and found it moist, tender, and tasty. Some went back for seconds. None of them had heard of Sous Vide but I think they were sold on the concept too after tasting the tender tasty  chicken.

Stainless Steel Pinky Ring

Beautiful whimsical ring

Sailors love shackle jewelry, so if you have a sailor in your life, this makes a great gift.

It should remain tarnish free in view of the stainless steel.

This is not adjustable, but it fit my pinky finger nicely.

Wi-Fi Hidden Camera, Nanny Cam


This is a slick idea. Hide your spy camera in plain site.

The only problem is the electrical outlets do not work, so you may want to add a post-it note that reads "Out of order."

Otherwise it's a great camera that you can place at any level on the wall in your office or home or shed or garage or RV. It communicatedsby Wi-Fi with an online program so you can monitor your camera from another location. See what the maid is doing, spy on your pets when you're not home. Check on your office in your absence. Find out who is shopping out of the petty cash. a

Great idea and they thoughtfully included a white front or an off-white cover, so it blends with your decor and other outlets.

Seems to help so far. I am up and moving around pain free.

For me this is a bonus as I have numerous past injuries from my adventurous lifestyle.

Product arrived in great shape, well wrapped and protected.

Easy to swallow.

Colorful Flyswatter


This is a set of fantastic fly swatters. I like that it came in the three pack. You can sit around with your family or friends and nail the flies immediately. 

Alternatively, you can have one inside, one outside and another in the car in case you stop for a picnic somewhere. 

I like the colorful tropical pastels. Might as well kill those buggers in style!

If you get it all gunky from too much killing, they are easy enough to wash with a bit of soap and water.

Great Addition To Riding with a Smart Phone, Watch Everything Behind You without Turning Around



This is a fabulous idea especially when riding in groups.

Pair this with your smart phone on the handlebars and you can clearly see everything coming up behind you. If you are in a race this can keep you ahead of the pack.

Also handy for watching traffic behind you in case you need to scoot over further because a wide load is bearing down on you. For all you bicycle enthusiasts who travel with a smart phone on the handlebars, this is a must have and a welcome addition to riding your bike in the 21st century.

Awesome Sound, Terrific Handle Bar Mount

Incredible Sound and waterproof too.

Sturdy handlebar mount for motorcycle or bicycle. Bright flashlight with two settings plus a third frantic flashing setting for emergencies.

I hesitated about how many stars to give it. The sound is awesome, but my buttons didn't work to shut it down or control the volume or switch between songs. The flashlight buttons worked beautifully, I just wish my other buttons worked.

The other problem is that this does not allow one to use a memory card to play music. For me this would be so handy. I don't ride my bike with a blue tooth phone. It does work with an MP3 player but that requires a cord. When you open the trap door to use the cord, that exposes the innards to the elements should it start raining.

It is rechargeable with an included USB cord. I do like that better than burning through batteries.

I finally settled on 3 stars, Great sound but lacking in the memory card feature and of course the problem in that my buttons didn't seem to work correctly.

Clever Kitchen Timer with BIG Numbers

This is a nice functional kitchen timer with a LOUD alarm. It counts down with your preset time, or you can set it to count up until you tell it to stop.

Never burn or overcook your meal again. Also handy to count up in case you are wondering how long ago you called for pizza delivery.

Uses one AAA battery that is not included (I wish they had thrown one in the box!)

The numbers are big and bold, you won't need you reading glasses to get a clear view of the timer. Comes with a magnetic back as well as a little easel to set it at an angle on the counter. It also has a place at the top for attaching a string to just hang it on a handy hook nearby.

Makes a great stop watch or kitchen timer. I use mine several times a day to remind me of various things I have gong on when I am multitasking.

Electronic Gadget Travel Bag

Times have changed for travelers. Now you need more than just a toiletry bag to get through your life.
Zero Grid Electronics Travel Organizer - Cord, Cable, and Accessories Case, Shadow

You need an electronic gadget bag.

This one is cleverly designed to hold cables, cords, memory cards, phones, cameras, MP3 players, chargers, adapters and so on.

Several pages of thick elastic bands capture any sized cord or device or battery. There is also a zippered pouch for small accouterments or for those tiny sets of instructions that come with many doohickeys.

Now you can pack up all your techno gear in one handy travel case. What's the use of having all these organizer tools if you can't keep them organized.

This is a clever bag, very useful.

Unique Spy Cam That You Can Hide in Plain Sight On Your Bookshelf

Conbrov DV9 Hidden Spy Book Camera,720P Home Security Camera with Motion Detection and Night Vision,Built-in 10000mAh Battery Stanby up to 2 Years

This is a great spy camera. It is cleverly concealed inside a leather looking notebook. There are blank pages inside the notebook. I would scratch something out on it like birthday book, or my rock collection. Something that if somebody was snooping around they would just slide it back on the shelf. 


The camera works vertical so you can safely tuck this book away on a bookshelf anywhere in your home or office. It has a motion detection so it will only record when something is happening. Audio recording is optional. 

The kit comes complete with everything except the memory card. I bought a 32b card, it pays to have 2 cards, that you can rotate around. 

Now you can find out the truth about what others are doing in your office or home when you aren't around. Or it can simply make a fun pet cam if you want to double check on your pet in your absence. 

Conbrov appears to make quality products that function correctly. I like it!

Incredible Sound, Makes My Pants Want to get Up and Dance

This puts the fun in dance and music.



It's summertime and I am outdoors sun up to sun down. I love my tunes!

I loaded up 32gb of my favorites, put them in this waterproof speaker, now I have tuns on my patio all day long.

Perfect for tiny home living, camping, RVing, instant party.

I carry this in my purse and joke about "party in my purse!"

I was pleasantly surprised at the superb quality of the sound. The lows are low and the highs are high, no distortion, even at louder volumes.

Perfect For Traveling on Extended Trips

I am excited to get this bag. It's lightweight yet very well made with sturdy fabric, tight stitching and in many cases double hardware such as zippers.

It has numerous pockets tucked in handy places that make them truly useful.



At the very top where the handle is, if you are not wearing it on your back is a small zipper compartment that is eash for you to reach. It's the perfect size for your wallet and passport.

I use to traverse by sailboats often. Having a backpack is the preferred luggage because you can carry it on your back while going up and down the ladders to get on and off the boats, thus keeping it dry and less likely to fall into the ocean.

I believe this size will easily qualify as carrry-on luggage. So you don't even have to check it in. It's much easier to carry it on your back than to fool around with those wheeled type luggage pieces. The wheels take up too much room.

This backpack thoughtfully has two drink holders, one on either side. The straps are padded and very comfortable. This is a lot of bang for th buck. I will enjoy using this on my next trip.

If it doesn't fit in my backpack, I'm not taking it with me.

Classic Love Song Everyone Should Own

Awesome love song for your lovers compilation. Here are the lyrics to this classic love song.

"Baby I'm-A Want You"

Baby I'm-a want you
Baby I'm-a need you
You're the only one I care enough to hurt about
Maybe I'm-a crazy
But I just can't live without
your lovin' and affection
Givin' me direction
Like a guiding light to help me through a darkest hour
Lately I'm a-prayin'
That you'll always be a-stayin' beside me

Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Feeling all the while and never really knowing why

Lately I'm a-prayin'
That you'll always be a-stayin' beside me.

Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Then you came along and made me laugh and made me cry
You taught me why

Baby I'm-a want you
Baby I'm-a need you

Oh, it took so long to find you, baby

Baby I'm-a want you
Baby I'm-a need you

Baby I'm-A Want You

Powerful Alternative to Antibiotics

Good powerful allicin for beefing up the immune system.

Doctors and their prescribed drugs destroyed my ability to take antibiotics.

First Allimax came to the rescue, then I discovered Zhou Allicin which is sold at a much better price.

I switched to see how that would work out. So far it's working out beautifully!

Especially helpful if you have HS disease. It works for me. I am pleased so far after using this for about a month.

I take 2 a day as maintenance to beef up my immune system. When I have problems from HS I start taking 4-6 more per day until the problems go away, then I am back to 2.

Fantastic Spy Camera with Microphone Recording Too

video


This is a fantastic sneaky idea that really works. Even if someone is inspecting the picture up close, you can not tell there is a camera and microphone hidden there. You can set it to record fulltime or just record when there is motion. It's a great way to spy on your pets to make sure they are behaving. 

I was thrilled to see my pooch really does stay home quietly without barking. He does a major patrol around the place then settles in for a nap. Too funny. He checks every door and window like a night watchman. Whether he is looking for security or looking to escape is anyone's guess. 

This spy camera comes with almost everything you need including a stunning picture. You can replace with your own of course. I loved everything about this spy camera except the frame needs clear plastic or glass to protect the picture and make it look a bit more believable. That is the only reason I took a star off. 

My other suggestion would be to include a maximum 32gb micro card with the kit. It came complete with everything except the micro card and the lacking of clear plastic to protect the photo form dust etc. 

This can be used at work or home or your RV or shed. 

It is so lightweight, you can travel with it, set it up in your hotel room to see what goes on in your absence. 

Replaces Electrolytes Essential to Good Health

Organic coconut water in a long life shelf dated  Tetra Pak.

Awesomely delicious. Super helpful in summer to help prevent heat stroke.

Quenches thirst, replaces electrolytes naturally.

Last summer while traveling I had to be outside repairing RV on side of the road. The 100 degree heat with 99 humidity overcame me. It took weeks to recover.


Then I discovered Amazon was carrying this awesome coconut water. This summer I am out walking the dog and riding my bicycle in Florida heat. Every day I drink at least one of these coconut waters. I feel amazingly well.

Organic and pure. Plenty to love in this box of wholesome goodness.

Delicious at room temperature or icy cold. The Tetra Paks store in the pantry until opened, then they need refrigeration.

I will never let my pantry run dry again.

Hydrates quickly.

Last summer I had heat stroke. It took me weeks to fully recover. It wrecked my summer. But now that pure coconut water is available in Tetra Paks, I can enjoy quick restorative hydration. I've been drinking at least one a day the entire summer. So far I feel terrific! I am outdoors often in the heat and humidity walking my dog or taking him for rides on my bicycle.
Vita Coco Coconut Water, Pure, 11.1 Ounce (Pack of 12)

When I lived in the Caribbean, I could get fresh coconut water every day. When I returned to the USA, I discovered this was going to be a huge problem. When I found out coconut water was being sold in Tetra Paks, I immediately became a fan.

Check the dates stamped on the carton. They are good on the shelf through that date. You can drink it room temperature or icy cold. Once you open a Tetra Pak, any unfinished product needs to be refrigerated. This is so delicious and comes in the right size, I seriously doubt if you will have any leftovers.

TV backlight , Nexlux LED TV Lights USB Kit 5050 RGB Multicolor Back Lightings Strip with 44-key IR Remote Controller for 46inch~70inch HDTV PC Monitor Home Theater Decoration

These lights are unique and quite versatile. 

The kit arrived complete. Nothing more to buy. The remote comes with the batteries installed, just remove the safety plastic tab that prevents the batteries from making contact during shipping. Now your remote is ready to operate. 

The USB plug will need to be plugged into the end of the light-strip. Make sure you get it in correctly or it won't work. The back of the lights comes with durable 3M sticky tape. Where ever you plan to put these lights, be sure to measure and mark with a pencil first. The 3M tape does not like to be re-positioned after you stick it on. If you have to move the lights, you will need to buy more 3M tape.


I find that if you carefully clean the area where the tape will stick with plain rubbing alcohol then making sure that is completely dry, the tape will adhere nicely. Typically the tape will set permanently after 24 hours or so of being stuck up. Try to press it into place so there are no air gaps. 

These lights can be powered by any USB port from your TV, or laptop, or an electric USB adapter or 12 volt adapter. This is perfect for tiny home living and especially for motorhomes and travel trailers. 

If you need to shorten the light strip, follow the included  instructions for snipping the lights with scissors. If you want longer lights, then buy another kit to hook into this one.

These lights are fun and festive. You can spend hours playing with the remote coming up with your own custom lighting. They give you plenty of colors and options in speed of light blinking to customize these any way you like. You can also just leave them full on after choosing your favorite color.

They collapse nice and neatly to hang on the wall or to store in the cabinet. Perfect for tiny home living as well as camping and RV's.

No metal parts to rust.

I like the festive colors of bright red silicone against the plastic grey. Absolutely no odor to these. I gave mine a thorough washing before use.

I am picky about washing my fruits and veggies. This speeds it up, having them in different sizes, especially for just washing a pint of berries.

Terrific for straining pasta or anything else that needs straining like fresh dried beans cooked in a crockpot that are going to made into a chilled salad.

Very handy.

Your kitchen or galley deserves these. They would make an awesome gift for any food enthusiast.

It comes with a 100% Lifetime Worry-Free Guarantee, so what's not to love?

Keep your mattress looking brand new from day one with this cover. While I thankfully don't suffer from incontinence, I do sit up in bed with coffee, tea or water nearby. I've been known to accidentally spill my coffee or tea and yikes! What a mess that makes. Now with this mattress protector, I can keep my almost new mattress looking new forever. 

I have several skin issues, so I am super picky about my bedding plus I don't want extra heat or cold, this mattress protector is neutral which is outstanding in my book, it neither adds heat nor coldness, just good old fashioned comfort and usefulness. 

Lifesaver In Weight, So Easy to Manage

Expandable Garden Hose,Tech Flexible Expandable Expanding Garden & Lawn Water Hose 50 FT for all Watering Needs.Cleaning Patio House or Garage with 7-way Spray Nozzle

This is a great expandable hose.



It came with quick connect fittings. You can pop it off the faucet for storage elsewhere, then pop it back on the faucet when you need it, without having to screw and unscrew it each time.

All the fittings are plastic which is lightweight and easy to manage. Perfect for a gardener who might have arthritis or problems with big heavy hoses, this is rather adaptive for ease of use. The spray nozzles has multiple functions. It also quick connects on and off, just click it on or off, no need to mess around screwing it on and off.

I tried all the settings in the video. I was very pleased with all of them. I was doing it one handed and the sprayer was new, but it clicked into place each time. Now that I have used the sprayer several times, it's much easier to manipulate.

Included are pictures that show it fully expanded as well as shrunk up on the post. I love not having to coil up 50 feet of heavy hose. This shrinks and does all the hard work for you.

It came with an extra fitting that I believe is intended for most kitchen faucets in case you want to use it indoors for your houseplants.

Nice hose that has earned its 5 stars thus far.
