The Ozeri Fresko Salt and Pepper Mill Set is handcrafted and made in Germany using the highest quality stainless steel. One of the smallest salt and pepper grinders ever made, each Fresko grinder boasts a petite and chic form factor to minimize kitchen top clutter. Each Fresko Grinder utilizes a powerful eco-friendly ceramic gear capable of grinding peppercorns, salt, and spices. Each grinder features an adjustable knob for grain adjustment from fine to coarse, and a transparent container that reveals the grinding action and makes monitoring seasoning levels easy.
I was recently sent the Ozeri Fresko Salt and Pepper Mill Set to review. This set is very well made in Germany and it is easy to see the quality despite their small size. Perfect for easy portability especially when entertaining outdoors. They are very substantial while petite and work very well grinding peppercorns and salt to whatever size you want from fine to coarse. If you are looking for functional, high quality in a small package the Ozeri Fresko set is for you.

I recently received Chicken Soup for the Soul: Messages From Heaven for review. I have to tell you that having lost both my parents, I love when I see signs they are around me. There is a yellow swallowtail butterfly that I see all the time and have consistently year after year, it appears everywhere and sometimes there are two, they circle around my kids, flutter right outside the kitchen window in the morning when I am making my coffee and they are right there whenever I am having a sad moment or am upset.
Well, when my husband brought in the mail he handed me two things, one was an envelope and the other a package. I opened the package and pulled out the Messages from Heaven book and on the cover along with the title was a white picket fence with a butterfly which I thought was pretty neat but then I opened the envelope and it was a sizeable check that I had no idea I was receiving from an advertising account. I stared at the check because it was exactly the amount that was needed for something, then I glanced again at the book and burst into tears. I did not even need to read the book and it had made my day with just the cover. I thought about how God and his angels work in ways to show us that they are watching over us and will care for us until we are all home again. I am sorry if this is sappy and over the top but I have toned things down for this post so be thankful.
So I am sure many of you have experienced the loss of a loved one and perhaps you are wondering about where they are, praying for a sign they are near. This book contains over 101 Miraculous Stories of Signs from Beyond, Amazing Connections, and Love that Doesn’t Die. Read about Grace who never knew she had a brother that died when she was an infant until he came to her in a dream and became her guardian angel. Michelle who was saved from a fatal accident by her late father who spoke to her and made her sit through the green light that kept her from being in the accident. There are so many stories that really speak to us who have experienced or who have hope of experiencing a sign that our loved one is still near, still with us, watching over us always.

It has been a while since we did a cloth diaper review, so I am thrilled to be able to review a Glow Bug diaper for you today! I was asked if I wanted a boy, girl or neutral colored diaper to review, and of course I chose boy. I was tickled pink when I opened the shipping envelope from Glow Bug to find a super cool flame diaper, and two soaker inserts! Now every time I go to change my baby’s diaper, my oldest asks if I am using the “fire” diaper, because it is his favorite!
This Glow Bug diaper is trim, not bulky, it is adjustable for perfect fit from newborn to toddler size, and the fit around his legs is perfect. The diapers are easy to use, just slip the soaker into the pocket and snap it into place. The pocket that is open on both ends allows the soaker to slip out during washing so it gets the maximum amount of cleanliness! The extra leg gussets work great keeping solids in, and there is soft waterproof fabric inside at the back and front to prevent leaks. The inner fabric, Slim Dry, is so soft, and keeps my baby comfortable. I am considering buying a set of these affordable diapers!
I love all the stylish, original prints that Glow Bug diapers use! They are like designer diapers! They come in sets of 12, with either boy, girl or neutral fabrics and colors. Each diaper comes with two soaker inserts, and each set of 12 comes with a matching wet bag! The videos on their website are helpful in showing you how their diapers work, and make it easier for you to decide if they are right for you and your baby!
Glow Bug is sponsoring a giveaway on Mommy Ramblings! One lucky blog reader will win a Glow Bug cloth diaper in their choice of boy, girl or neutral color, valued at $12.50! Thank you Glow Bug for providing this super review diaper and sponsoring this fantastic giveaway!!! Open to US residents.
Fear, spine tingling, leg shaking fear is what we experienced when we heard that sound. The hissing, rattling, unmistakable sound that my mother was using the pressure cooker. Not just any pressure cooker but the biggest, baddest, pressure cooker, handed down to her from her mother. The regulator on this pressure cooker was like a solid steel hockey puck that danced on top of that pot leaving us all wondering if and when it would explode.
My mother always cooked her stuffed artichokes in the pressure cooker, they were always delicious and we couldn’t wait to eat them but the cooking process struck fear in all of us, even my mother. She had a love/hate relationship with the pressure cooker. She loved the way it cooked but she almost seemed deathly afraid and that fear was transferred to all of us kids who my mother would shoo out of the kitchen when it came time to open that pressure cooker. My mother had us all convinced that the pressure cooker was unpredictable and the very act of transfering it from the stove to the sink took a few Hail Marys. When it was safely in the sink and I think after my mother blessed herself with the sign of the cross, she then doused that pressure cooker with cold water for what seemed like hours. When she finally deemed it questionably safe she would again call to us to stay out of the kitchen because she was about to open the pressure cooker.
This was when we all gulped and wondered if this was going to be the time that unpredictable beast was going to explode and sail right up through the roof of our house leaving a gaping hole which the tremendous steam would rise out of, as the neighbors would stand and shake their heads and call the fire department. My mother would be clear across the kitchen, lucky to be alive and breathing heavily, having the wind knocked out of her as the blast shot her clear over to the refrigerator where she landed with a thud. When we saw her pry those locking handles loose and the seal was broken, we finally could breath, knowing that we made it. My mother would tell us all was alright and we could come back in the kitchen. We made it, the pressure cooker had not destroyed our house, and we were soon enjoying the artichokes and could breathe easy until the next time.
Needless to say I have always found pressure cookers intimidating. Even when my mother bought a more modern version it may have had a less intimidating regulator but it still danced and hissed on top of that pot and scared all of us. I never felt the need to put myself or my kids through that so I never thought about getting a pressure cooker. When Nesco asked me if I would like to review their new 6 liter 4-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker, that old fear came right back. My husband though, was stoked, so we agreed to the review. The pressure cooker arrived and it did not bear any resemblance to the terror inducing pressure cookers of my past. It looked quite serene, with a digital touch pad and nothing on the top to dance or hiss.
My husband made a pot roast the first time we used it and he could not believe how quickly it cooked the meat and that it was still tender and falling apart the way it would if it had been cooking for hours. He made another type of roast a few days later and we had the same impressive results. It’s a new day, a new dawn, the pressure cooker is not something to be feared but it is an appliance to be embraced. If you have always wanted a pressure cooker but were living in fear of unstable, hissing pots with gauges that could not be trusted, you can rejoice. Go out and try a Nesco Electric Pressure Cooker and start changing the way the world thinks of pressure cookers one meal at a time, one household at a time, until the world knows that we can pressure cook without fear and have our artichokes too.
The new NESCO® 6 liter 4-in-1 Pressure Cooker is sleek, safe and quiet.
The NESCO® 6 Liter 4-in-1 Pressure Cooker is equipped with several built-in safety features which will not allow the cooker to open while under pressure. The NESCO® 6 Liter 4-in-1 Pressure Cooker is a sealed vessel, As the pressure inside increases, the boiling point of the water increases, which allows the liquid to rise to a higher temperature before boiling so the food cooks up to 70% quicker. Even more impressive, the NESCO® 6 Liter 4-in-1 Pressure Cooker is really four appliances in one: pressure cooker, steamer, slow cooker and rice cooker.
The NESCO® 6 Liter 4-in-1 Pressure Cooker also has a warm setting and browning setting. The warm setting can be manually used or will automatically switch to warm after using a High or Low setting.
Functions are preset and programmable for up to an eight-hour delay, so dinner’s ready when you get home. Self-locking hinge lid and non-stick cooking insert are removable for easy clean-up. The tight lid is secure for transporting food to potlucks. Great for busy people!
