Wonder Grill Silicone Burger Press

This post is for all the foodies out there.

While I love all types of foods, one thing that I think I will never grow tired of is one of Americas favorite food.  That all American Hamburger.  And while many places can make a mean burger.  There is times I rather just make my own at home.

So, not sure if it is a Kentucky thing, but most of the time we just grab a bunch out of the pack and make our own patties.  Sometimes this results in huge too thick burgers or just a plate of awkward burgers.  It also means some is larger then others, some is raw or some is burnt. 

While there is other burger presses on the market.  My favorite to date is one I got for review.  It is a silicone one from wonder grill.  Along with this silicone press they even include a food umbrella that is perfect for cook outs.


While I haven’t cooked out in a while now, I do like to have burgers pressed out and ready to grab.  Sure, you can buy frozen hamburger patties but do you always know what your getting with those?  With this easy to use press, I can put whatever type of meat I want in there.  Turkey burger, lean or fat.  I am in control and I like that!

I have been using mine and it works good.  I press out the patties, throw wax paper in between them, put them in the freezer bag and freeze them.  They are easy to get apart.  The press itself is easy to use and easy to clean.  It is available on Amazon

This headlamp is perfect for walking the dog!

The past month or so has been an adventure around our home.  It all started when one morning, John came in and placed an adorable black sheltie on my lap.  Wolfie is 2 years old and half brother to Foxy, our other sheltie.  I am not sure how long he was in the rescue, but it had to be a big blow on him.  Being taken away from what you know to something you don’t know.  Then when he got used to the rescue, along came John.


The day after he came, I left for a week.  So in that week he bonded with John.  Imagine my surprise (and his) when I showed up.  He didn’t want me here.  He felt I was the intruder.  He was adjusting.  It took him time to accept me and I am glad to say that he is actually happy when I walk in the room now.

Building trust was only the first thing we had to do with him.  We soon discovered that he didn’t know any of the basic commands.  We also learned wee wee pads and housebreaking was to also be included in this black furballs package. 


He also loves to bark at anything that he doesn’t know.  He has an attitude and if he isn’t on the leash when outside, he will meet the neighbors dog half way and stand there having a barking challenge.  This is the main reason we decided to leash him when outside.  Having to use a leash makes extra work on us.  During the day it isn’t so bad.  It is after dark that really can get tricky.  Have you ever carried a flash light and tried to control a hard headed dog on a leash?


It just so happened that I had a chance to review a special light.  In fact the light is a head lamp.  You just slide the elastic over your head and push a button.  There is 2 level brightness and also can make it blink red.  While I am sure they never thought about pets when they made this light, that is what I have been using it for!  Now both hands are free while we walk and I can go just about anywhere in the yard since the light works really well.

This is the one headlamp you will need for any situation: running, jogging, hiking, backpacking, camping, caving, hunting, fishing, reading, work under the sink, in the attic, for construction works, just name it! And it also makes a great gift!

It is from luxuriously smart and it is the luxo lite cree head lamp.  Available in blue or yellow on Amazon

I have encountered some great watches since I started this website.  Watches that are nice watches at affordable prices.  Like this waterproof black leather band watch.


This watch is available on Amazon.  Would you believe it only costs $15.99?  It comes in a nice box that would make it very giftable.  It keeps time perfect.  It looks like a high end watch.  The roman numerals are very readable.  John loves it.

Weimy Compact Lightweight Large Beach Blanket

Unless you are somewhere like Florida you are probably experiencing a change in the weather.  Here in Kentucky we have been lucky so far as to not have really cold weather.  It has been sunny and in the 50s and it November.  That doesn’t happen often.  I just enjoy it and will take what mother nature hands out to me!

While in Panama, the one thing I missed the most was the changing of the seasons.  There it was hot hot hot.  Same year round.  90 and above all year long.  This was nice beach weather.  While it was nice for a while, I didn’t get to see the leaves falling off the trees,  the snow falling on the ground or the first flowers in bloom.  That is what I missed.

Now that I am back enjoying the changing of the seasons, I still think of the beach and warmer weather, especially on cold days.

I was asked to review a beach blanket.  I guess this had me thinking more about my time in Panama.


This blanket would’ve been the perfect item to have had on beach days.  It is a quality made blanket, it is made with 100% parachute nylon.  This makes it very lightweight, but at the same time durable.

It is sand resistant, so it is easy to shake off after you pick it up and you don’t have to worry about getting it all over your car.  While it is lightweight the blanket comes with stakes to hold it down as well as pockets.  You can put sand in these pockets and that will anchor the blanket down.

It comes in a nice little pouch.  You would think something in that pouch wouldn’t be worth fooling with, but once you take it out it is about 7×6 and you have enough room for 2 people to sit on comfortably. 

While I didn’t have a chance to try it out on an actual beach, I do know that this material doesn’t get really hot.  So you don’t have to worry about burning your legs when sitting down on it.

It is available on Amazon.

If you know someone that likes to go to the beach, this might be a good gift for them!  I know I would’ve loved receiving something like this when the beach was only a couple of minutes away!

Bouchard Chocolate Napolitains

Let’s talk chocolate!

As I have gotten older, my savory tooth is still there, but my sweet tooth is growing.  Give me snack cakes and cookies, pies or cakes- the possibilities are endless!  But then there is times I just crave candy. 

My favorite is normally milk chocolate.  I have never been much of a fan of the dark chocolate.  John loves it.  I have tried to get  used to it, especially knowing it is much healthier for me. 

I guess it really depends on the dark chocolate brand and where it comes from.  I have found a dark chocolate that I approve of.  It is from Belgium.  They are known for their great chocolates.  The ones I had a chance to try is the, napolitains from Bouchard Chocolate.


I liked these because they didn’t leave me with a bitter after taste that a lot of dark chocolate leaves.  It is unbelievable that it doesn’t leave that taste since it is made with 72% cacao which means less sugar!

For the people that isn’t sure what cacao is, it is just bean type things that cocoa and chocolate is usually made with.  Cacao is known for numerous health benefits.

I still love my milk chocolate but am not disappointed in this chocolate at all.  It would be great enough to give as a gift to yourself or a loved on this holiday season!

My favorite Dog Training Collar

I have talked a few times about training collars for dogs.  I have tried a few and each one has their own pros and cons.  I wanted to share one one of my favorite ones with you. 

I like this one because there is no shocking involved at all.  It works only with sound and vibrations.  No shock, no static shock.  It is the Our K9 Mint Bark collar

This is a really nice collar that will fit xs- small dogs, the ones that tend to bark the most!  As I said before, I don’t mind mine barking at all.  Mine are very vocal.  I just want them to know when I say enough, it is enough.  This collar gives them their freedom to bark a few times before it does it’s thing.

How to Get the Best Deal When Shopping Online


The following  is a sponsored post.

How to Get the Best Deal When Shopping Online



No one wants to pay too much for something. Of course, most individuals realize that they are not going to be able to get the items they want for free, but they are interested in paying a fair price for it. The Internet has really allowed individuals to get the best deal on all kinds of different things. The following tips can help you to be sure that the next time you shop online you get the best deal.

The very first thing that you want to do is comparison shop. You do not want to waste a lot of time searching around tons of different websites. However, if you take a little bit of time, you can check some of the major auction sites and major retailers just to see what prices are available. It is a good idea to look at items that are new and used, depending on the thing that you are searching for. It is also a good idea to look at the manufacturer’s website. This will help you to get a good idea of what a fair price is for the items you would like to purchase.
The next thing you want to do is look around for sales and ways to save money. Certain websites are going to offer sales, while others may have coupons. It may be possible for you to wait until you know a major sale will be going on, like on Black Friday.



Don’t forget about shipping. Depending on the item you would like to purchase, shipping can cost just as much as the item or more. Many websites will offer free shipping or will tell you about ways that you can get free shipping.

Shopping around can take a little bit of time. However, it is worth it no matter if you are purchasing Amelia Jane London stockist items or if you are purchasing electronic items. It is good to balance how much time you will spend trying to find a good deal with the amount of time that you can spend working. This is especially the case if you work for yourself and have the ability to earn extra money. If you are going to spend hours and hours looking around for ideal, it might be a good idea for you to spend just 15 or 20 minutes looking around for something and then spend the other time making a little bit of money in order to make up whatever you had to pay extra.

Stainless Steel Bottle Koozie Insulator

I can remember when I was younger, my favorite thing was drinking a coke/pepsi out of a glass bottle.  I don’t remember if they were 12 or 16 ounces, but they were a treat.  At that point in my life I guzzled and didn’t sip.  Now as an adult, I tend to drink more slowly.  This can sometimes cause those 12 ounce bottles to get warmer then I like.  As with any problem, this is a solution.

The solution I have found is to keep my bottles in this 12 oz stainless steel bottle insulator. If you are looking to get a flask check out this Hydro Flask and Yeti comparison.  It works for any 12 ounce bottle.  soda, beer – anything!  I put one in there to test it out and the bottle did stay cool all day.  I had no problem putting the bottle in it or taking it out.  It is safe in there.
