I am super excited to share this product with all of you because it is a product that I have thoroughly used and have had a wonderful experience with. My regular readers know I am a foodie at heart and huge fan of kitchen gadgets, especially those that A) help me make amazing food and B) make my life simpler. This chicken wing and leg rack does just that.
The product comes with two pieces, a rack for holding your poultry and a pan that sits below it that helps contain the drippings and scraps from the meat as it cooks. The drip pan is extremely useful as these juices can be utilized in either basting or for making high-flavor gravies and sauces. The drip pan is extra-deep to accommodate even high-fat poultry and has sturdy weight bearing handles on either side to make moving the tray easy.
One of the features of this product that really made it a keeper for me is its versatility. Both parts of the unit (rack and drip pan) are constructed of a really high quality stainless steel and are dishwasher friendly!! Additionally, if you are not planning on using the drippings for sauces or gravy - you can use the drip pan to steam or grill veggies right below your chicken. Add a little water and butter to the bottom, fill with veggies and seasonings and allow the juices from the meat to marinate and add amazing flavor to your vegetables!
Whether you are making a handful of chicken legs for Monday night dinner or are grilling a slew of food for a birthday BBQ - this rack is definitely a must have for any family. The products super durable, stainless steel design allows it to be used in the grill, smoker or even in the oven. The only ounce of issue I had with the product was cleaning up the drip pan, especially after grilling - but *pro-tip- cover your drip pan with aluminum foil if you are not planning on using the drippings or for easy removal of steamed veggies. The layer of aluminum foil allows food to cook evenly but removes easily - taking the mess with it.
I really cannot say enough about this product. It’s not often I am so enthusiastic about the products I try - but this one is so useful and has a lot of great features. It also is a big help in preparing tastier, healthier food. Your chicken is crispy and flavorful without sitting and cooking in huge amounts of fat. This product also decreases cooking time by evenly spacing the meat so it cooks on all sides at once.
This chicken wing and leg rack is definitely one I recommend and hope that others will enjoy it as much as I have. If you are interested in learning more about this product or purchasing it - It is available online throughCave Tools!

Let's start with some fun facts. Lavender has been used throughout history to treat many ailments such as insomnia, colic and even in the prevention and treatment of illnesses. The medicinal benefits of this beautiful and aromatic herb cannot be beat due to its amazing antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. When used in the form of an oil and diffused into the air, this herb can alleviate migraines, create a relaxed atmosphere and set the mood for a romantic evening. Since lavender is an all natural remedy for bacterial infections, having its sweet aroma wafting throughout your home is said to reduce the chances of catching and or spreading illnesses or colds.
While it is not recommended to ingest lavender or other concentrated oils because the constant exposure to concentrated extracts can lead to other complications, using fresh or dried lavender leaves for use in cooking or preparing meals is fine. Drinking a warm cup of lavender tea or using as seasoning on an assortment of meal options is highly beneficial. Ingesting fresh or dried lavender leaves is known to help with bloating which is often caused by poor gastrointestinal health and recent antibiotic usage. The antibacterial components restore natural gut flora and in turn, reduces abdominal bloating.
As for Ellie Bean and I, we LOVE Lavender anything, especially when it comes to our nightly routine! We used lavender bath products, lavender lotions, and we diffuse lavender in her room to help her sleep at night. When Bulk Apothecary offered a Lavender Bath Bomb Kit for us to try, I was excited to give it a shot!
Every part of this beautiful kit was packaged really well and sealed tight for freshness. The recipe card was included, simple to follow, and the next time we had a rainy day... we put it all together!
The bath bombs came out a little crazy, but that's more my fault than the kit. I was a bit too anxious to use them and didn't let them set as long as I should have. We dropped the bath bomb in the tub and Ellie Bean started giggling with excitement as we watched it fizzle and explode in the bathwater. The aroma was potent, but soothing. When she got out of the tub, her skin was silky smooth and her eyes were already starting close. No sooner did I get her in her pajamas and turn on her diffuser that she was out cold. We often struggle with getting her to sleep right away, but tonight, she was asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow.
I can't wait to try some of the other kits and products that Bulk Apothecary has to offer.
What are your favorite bath bomb scents? Do you love lavender too?
While many people enjoy the act of shopping in brick and mortar store locations, billions of people do the majority of their ‘non grocery’ shopping online. If you’re a hardcore bargain shopper, finding the best deals in an online setting can be a bit of a challenge but with a bit of practice, online bargain hunting becomes an art. Here are just a few tips for getting the most bang for your buck.
Make Saving a Habit!
While bargain hunting does take a bit of shopping around - there are steps you can take to save automatically every time you shop. First - use website resources to find special deals and promotional codes. Sites like GiveMeDeals or RetailMeNot for example allow you to peruse hundreds of stores, deals and coupons. Apply these deals at stores you normally visit to really lock in some extra savings. Additionally - there are numerous websites, like Ebates, online that you can create an account with that if you enter online stores through their website you get a percentage of cashback on each purchase. With Ebates, I've earned almost $100 in cashback just from shopping this holiday season! While this type of resource doesn’t necessarily fall under bargain hunting - it does create savings that do add up for people who do a lot of online shopping.
Compare Compare Compare
Comparison shopping is as important in an online setting as it is when shopping in physical stores. Many stores often carry the same exact brands at different prices and doing a bit of legwork can definitely save you some cash. The upside is - comparison shopping is a lot faster online than in store. So it will definitely save you some gas money.
When comparison shopping, remember to check in with both large stores and smaller sellers. For example - if you are looking for a deal on a high end shampoo - of course you are going to check your normal retailers, Walmart, Target, Etc. - which is good BUT remember to check places like Amazon (which also offers lightning deals! and Ebay - both of these sites welcome individual third party sellers - these sellers have lower overhead and often offer better deals to bump their sales. Remember - when you do find the deal that looks most appealing, try finding coupon codes and additional discounts for that product or retailer to lower your cost even more.
Consider Comparable Products
Another way to save money while shopping online is to consider products that you wouldn’t normally buy. No matter what product you are looking for - there are more than likely several different companies that manufacture nearly identical products under a different brand. If you are unsure about trying a new brand try doing a bit of research and always be sure to read retail customer's reviews and blog reviews if they are available. Brands that emulate larger brands are often nearly identical in make - the only difference is they are slightly cheaper to attract customers away from bigger brands. Also - if you really don’t like it - most companies have a return or money back policy - so be sure to use those as well. You’ll never find new brands if you don’t branch out - so don’t be afraid to try something new!
Finding the best deals online does take a bit of practice - but once you find a couple of amazing deals, you may find that you prefer online shopping to traditional in-store shopping. Less crowds, no gas costs and hey, no one gives you dirty looks for shopping in your PJ’s. Making a habit of utilizing these simple steps will save you money each and every time -- and that is a deal we’re all down for.

Food Dehydrating is a fun and versatile skill that no food enthusiast should lack. Whether you are making homemade meat jerkies, drying herbs for cooking or dehydrating fruits for tasty snacks -- this method of preserving food is simple and the possibilities are truly endless. Here are a few tips and tricks to get your started on your journey.
Choose the Right Dehydrator!
While some people may choose to go 1960’s hippie compound and open-air dehydrate.. It’s must faster if you don’t. As you search stores and online sources for your electronic dehydrator keep in mind that there will be an overwhelming number of choices. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing.
-Make sure the unit you pick has a temperature setting! Different types of plants, fruits and meats dry at different rates and dry optimally at varying temperatures! A lot of units do not have a temperature setting and dry everything with moving air- but these machines are much harder to time and it is much harder to get the result you are looking for.
-Multiple trays are your friend. If you plan to dehydrate snacks and herbs in bulk, having multiple drying racks in the same unit is key. Even if you are only doing smaller batches - having empty racks in between the ones you are using can help the food to dry more evenly by allowing for better air flow.
Start off Simple!
Like any other skill - dehydrating is a learned process - so it’s best to start off with easy projects and work your way up. Gourmet seasoned turkey jerky is likely not going to be a winner on your first go with a dehydrator. Here are some simple foods to try that tend to come out well -- even for beginners.
Before you begin dehydrating you want to do a bit of research on your intended project. Find out what the most commonly used temperature and time frames are for the plant, fruit or meat you are using. It is a common mistake to increase the suggested temperature in an effort to shorten the time it takes to dry the food thoroughly. Unfortunately - what ends up happening is that the outside of the food dries first and creates a seal over the item that often prevents the food from drying out completely. The main appeal to dehydrating food is that it preserves them and they stay edible for long periods of time. Trying to speed through leaves moisture inside that will cause the food to rot long before it should.
If done right, dehydrated foods can help you stockpile non-perishables, tasty meat treats, fresh spices and tasty snacks for the whole family. Once you learn the basics, there’s no end to what you can create!

During the holiday season, I often like to look for homemade crafts and things to put together for the family as gifts.

I'm looking forward to making these blog posts about different items to make for the holidays!
