Review: Amber jewelry for pain?

There are many wonderful, natural remedies that work remarkably well to help support our bodies, relieve stress, ease pain and combat illnesses. There are also many touted remedies that do nothing at all.     We are big proponents of using the things created by God such as diet, herbs, essential oils, massage and much […]

Review: PurifiCup portable water filter

Clean, safe drinking water is essential for life and survival, whether in every day life or in any type of emergency. The first and most survival need is water safe enough to drink. Dehydration can occur very quickly from working outside in the sun, to hiking and of course a disruption of water services. In […]

Review: Spiral vegetable slicer

Noodles out of zucchini? Why, yes! I’ve written about my beloved “zoodles” many times, here for example. The tool of choice for my zoodles is this manual, spiral vegetable slicer. (No, I am not an affiliate, nor do I receive any compensation. This is the one I actually purchased, use and love!) The simplicity of this […]

Review: Frieling stainless steel manual coffee maker

Coffee snobs (umm “experts”) say that the best coffee comes from a French press non-electric coffee maker. If you don’t care about being a coffee expert, but you want to make coffee that tastes amazing, and you want this amazing coffee if the power is out, or just to save electricity, or just to use […]

Review: Kyocera manual coffee grinder

Review: Let’s Do Organic sugar cones

Nut milks, grain milks, bean and seed milks are not only delicious, they are also extremely nutritious and versatile. Especially helpful for those with dairy sensitivities, alternatives to dairy milks can be used for drinking, cooking, baking, smoothies and even making yogurt and cheese.

Review: Natural Nut Butter Mixer

Open the jar of natural nut butter and what do you find? Usually the oil and nut butter have separated and the oil is on top of the nut butter which is curiously similar to cement.     Enter this crazy-creative manual nut butter mixer! It works so easily and fast, I was amazed. My […]

Review: Rice Rinsing Bowl

Rice is a staple in many countries and ethnic dishes. There are many varieties of rice and just as many ways to cook rice. We love rice, but we don’t love sticky, clumpy, starchy rice. Cooked rice that is firm and sports separated grains is the end product we seek for rice’s many applications from eating […]
