3M Product Review via Shoplet

This Mouse Pad with Gel Wrist Rest from 3M gives good support to my wrist. I really like how easily my mouse moves across this one. It glides effortlessly. I had been using another gel pad which was also comfortable but my mouse didn't seem to move as smoothly as this one. I also like that this one doesn't attract lint and it's easy to wipe off.

The 3M Keyboard with Gel Wrist Rest  also has the same supportive gel that the mouse pad has. I like that it doesn't take up a lot of space. It has a sleek design. It's easy to move around and also cleans easily. It has a somewhat of a cool touch to it also. 

These make computer time much more comfortable for me.

We love this 3M Adjustable Monitor Stand. It is made very well. The legs are easy to add or take apart to the desired height you want. The bottom legs have a non skid rubber so it will stay in place. It can hold up to 20 lbs. This is great for space saving on your desk. We've also found it works awesome for putting our boys' Xbox underneath the stand and then setting their screen on top. It's really great if you don't have a lot of room. I love how versatile it is!

Modern Potluck - Book Review

Modern Potluck has 100 make ahead recipes that are to be shared at potlucks. It is full of beautiful pictures of many of the dishes. The book is well laid out and easy to read. It offers recipes that cater to gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, dairy free, and meat eaters also. The author has included everything - drinks, snacks, dips, main courses, salads, sides, sweets, and condiments.

I was really looking forward to this cookbook. I was hoping to find some new recipes so I could mix up my usual potluck go to dishes. Not the case for me! I was so disappointed by this book. This is definitely not for the potlucks I go to. The recipes are definitely for the "modern" group. I had a really hard time finding any recipe I would make. It has a lot of unique combinations. Many also include ingredients on the more expensive side. One example- Spiced Butterflied Lamb with Date Barbecue Sauce- way over our budget.

I could see this being a hit with a certain group of people but it's not my style.

Keliwa Silicone Muffin & Cupcake Baking Pan

The Keliwa Silicone Muffin & Cupcake Baking Pan is made from high quality 100% food grade silicone and is FDA approved. It is heat resistant up to 450 degrees. It is safe for the dishwasher, oven, and freezer.

Today I made zucchini muffins since I had a bunch of zucchini I needed to use up. I did spray the pan. You also need to put a tray or cookie sheet under it because it is very flexible and needs support. I didn't find this to be a pain since the pan underneath comes out clean.

I found I needed to increase the cooking time because of the pan underneath but that was not a big deal. I think it was only around an extra 5 minutes or so. 

The muffins popped out easily. I just pushed up from the bottom and out they came. They were evenly cooked and the pan cooled quickly. It was also easy to wash up. I just washed with soap and water and because it is a muffin pan it does take a bit to wipe out each little section but hardly anything stuck to it so it was quick.

You can find the Keliwa Silicone Muffin & Cupcake Baking Pan on Amazon.

Oflamn Heavy Duty Canvas Handbag Camouflage

I absolutely love this tote bag! The Oflamn Heavy Duty Canvas Handbag Camouflage comes in 2 colors. The pink camo shown here and also army camo. The bag is very sturdy and has tons of room. You can use it for a beach bag, diaper bag, shopping bag, or for the gym. It is made of eco-friendly 90% cotton canvas and 10% cotton. The bag measurements are 17.5"x5.5"x14.5" (H*D*L) and the small pouch is 8.2"x4.7".

Small pouch attaches inside the tote.

Lots of space. It does have a metal button closure at the top.

Pockets on each side. Easily holds 18 oz bottle I put in it. 

This is such a great tote. I really like everything about it. The style, quality, and size are perfect for me.

Vegetarian Quick & Easy - Under 15 Minutes - Book Review

Vegetarian Quick & Easy - Under 15 Minutes contains 100 quick and easy recipes. I am by no means a vegetarian but I do love cookbooks and enjoy trying new recipes. I was thinking that since this is a vegetarian cookbook it would be a bit healthier but was surprised at the amount of recipes that call for white bread. It also tends to be heavy on recipes with cheese. I don't care for tofu but if you do enjoy it, there are are several recipes using tofu in the book. I know I could substitute in meat to adjust the recipe to my liking though.

There are several recipes that sound good. They are just not anything really new to me. Maybe if you're more of a beginner cook or just needing a jump off point this book might be for you. There are a few pictures in the book.
