BruJoy Can Opener Review

Oh sensible hands. Who likes to mess her hands trying to open a freaking can? Not me! Thank goodness for this awesome can opener from BruJoy. 

The BruJoy Can Opener has sharp cutting disc blades, a large turning knob, and a nice smooth and round handle. You will be able to open cans effortlessly. The opener is made out of stainless steel so it should last long. 

The cutting drive leaves a smooth edge so you won't get hurt by those sharp pointy edges other can openers leave. 

The cleaning of the BruJoy Can Opener is super easy. You just rinse under running water and then you can place it in the dish washer (or wash it by hand like I do). 

Overall I am super happy with this product, I threw away my older one and would never look back :)

Bellemain Stainless Steel Lemon Press Review

I love citrus with everything, seriously. With my chicken, guacamole, cilantro lime rice, fish, shrimp, to cook my pork… I love citrus. 

I normally squeezed these with my bare hands, even though I love how much juice I can get that way, I didn't like to have my hands covered in lime/lemon juice, because there is always something happening last minute when I need to use my hands… 

With this new Bellemain Stainless Steel Lemon Press that problem is solved. Made from 18/10 stainless steel, it won't rust, stain, chip or peel. It has silicone handles to make it easier and more comfortable to squeeze.

Size is perfect. Works for small lemons, as good as for large limes. It will squeeze most of the juice with so little effort. You won't even notice that you finished squeezing the lemon, because with a gentle squeeze you are done.

The Bellemain Stainless Steel Lemon Press is easy to clean, just runs under warm soapy water and thats it. You can also wash it in the dishwasher if you wish.

I am really satisfied with the quality and functionality of this product, and I would recommend it to everyone.

Perfect Baked Potato Recipe

This one is super easy! I have always made my baked potatoes this way and will never change it. This is my husband's favorite recipe :)



Simple and easy are the words I use to describe it.

You only need:

Russet Potatoes
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Kosher Salt (Coarse)


Directions:
1: Preheat oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 
2: Clean your potatoes' skins with a brush and dry it with a  towel.
3: Poke your potatoes with a knife OR fork. This will help the steam escape from the potatoes while they're cooking.
4: Rub the potatoes with olive oil and ten sprinkle the kosher salt all around.
5: Place in baking sheet and in the oven for 30 minutes. Turn them over and then bake for 30 more minutes.
6: Insert a fork to check for doneness and serve if they are ready :)

You will get crispy skin and fluffy soft inside. I LOVE IT!

Children 'n Us Stroller Organizer Review

Who doesn't love a nice stroller organizer? I know all mommas do, including me!

When I received the Stroller rainier from Children 'n Us this is what I automatically looked at:
1. How big it was 
2. How many pockets (3 pockets outside, 1 main compartment, 1 pocket inside with zipper, 2 mesh pockets that are cup holders)
3. Straps and buckle mechanism

Let me tell you, this Children 'n Us Stroller Organizer is the perfect size for everything you need when you go out to a park, a playdate, the mall or anywhere, really. I have never been a diaper bag person, so this is a great item for me. Although, my kid is already 2, but I still need to have extra outfits, snacks and sippy cups just in case.

In this stroller organizer I can fit, 2 sippy cups (or bottles) in the cup holder meshes, my wallet in an inside zipper compartment, my cell phone and keys in the outside velcro pocket, my pepper spray (yes I carry a pepper spray with alarm with me) in the outside open pocket for easy reach, and an outfit (shirt, pants, underwear, socks and crocs) with a travel towel in the main compartment, plus couple of snacks! And there is still space left! Amazing right?

I don't only use the 
Children 'n Us Stroller Organizer for my stroller, I use it for my bike and for my shopping cart. 



The grocery store is less than half a mile from my house so I walk there when I need to buy everyday stuff. I buckle my stroller organizer to the handle and when we get there I place my cart in the lower rack of the shopping cart and move the organizer to the back of the child seat. It is amazing. 








My husband is trying to convince me to use it for his chair in the living room, so he can place all the controllers inside, because we don't have side tables yet haha!

The straps have buckles easy to install and are adjustable, that is why the stroller organizer can be placed everywhere. I am already thinking to use it on the back of my seat in the car too, for the drive in movies ;)

The 
Children 'n Us Stroller Organizer is tested to hold a maximum of 2 kg (4.4 lbs). I mention this because I had the issue that when my stuff weighs more than that, the straps get loose and the organizer will start to hang lower than where I want it to be and it bothers my kid when he wants to recline and his head bumps the organizer. But this does not affect how great this organizer works and how much you can fit inside. 

I would suggest to leave the straps as wide as they are, but instead of the buckles add velcro or other type of mechanism for that matter. Something that will still let you adjust the height, but that won't move after you place it at a certain position.


Overall great product and I would recommend it to other parents! You can buy it directly from Amazon here:

BakeitFun Silicone Baking Mat Review






I received the Bakeit Fun Silicone Baking Mat and as soon as I got it I checked for odors and it had zero strong odors which was good. The color blue is a fun color for me! 

It rolls really small so it takes little space in my cabinets, which I love! The Bakeit Fun Silicone Baking Mat is made out of high food grade silicone, so it is reusable. AND since it is reusable I can stop buying the parchment paper I always use, and at the same time this reduces the amount of waste my family generates, oh and I am not counting the baking spray. I can stop buying that too because this Bakeit Fun Silicone Baking Mat is non-stick so I won't need spray or grease anymore.

For my first time using the baking mat, I made chocolate chip cookies, following the Ghirardelli recipe that comes on the back of the milk chocolate chips package. They turned out perfect and their bottoms were not burnt like before (I like them crispy, so it kind of is my fault lol)

Although the baking mat didn't fit my sheets (9"x13"), it worked for me. I placed it in my pan with the edges bent and it was perfect. Cookies didn't stick, it was super easy to clean and dried fast. I also love the "ruler" in the edges because they help me measure if my dough balls are too big or too small. They give you measurements in inches and centimeters :)

The size of this mat is 16.5" x 11". Does not need to be greased, and it is oven, microwave and freezer safe. The Bakeit Fun Silicone Baking Mat can hold temperatures from -40 F to 450 F! It doesn't get stained or absorbs odors either.

 I would definitely recommend this product to bakers! You won't have to buy parchment paper, baking spray or grease anymore! This does the work and it is reusable :)

Sunsella's Little Gems Silicone Baking Cups Review

As you all may know, I love to cook. I also like baking, but mostly sweets. My son is a fan of cupcakes, and once in a while I make him a batch for the week. 

I still don't have a "healthy" cupcake recipe, featuring a veggie or a particular fruit, so if you know a great recipe let me know and I will give you credit if I try it :) 


I had the chance to review these cuties. They are the Little Gems from Sunsella. It is a set of twelve (12) colorful silicone baking cups. The colors are exquisite, they are bright, so fun and cheerful.


Little Gems are high quality and BPA Free. They are made from food safe silicone and are also phthalate and lead free, and meet FDA standards.

Cleaning is easy, food doesn't stick to them, they are reusable and environmentally friendly since you reduce your amount of garbage by stopping buying the disposable liners. They are stackable so they take little space in your cabinets or pantry. 

This silicone baking cups hold temperatures for up to 440 degrees Fahrenheit, and are freezer friendly too (temperatures from the -40 degrees Fahrenheit)

Their measurements are: 2.6 inches (top diameter), 1.78 inches (bottom diameter) and 1.3 inches (height)


The Little Gems by Sunsella not only can be used as cupcake liners, you can use them as food separators as seen in some bento box lunches (sadly I don't own any food containers like those so I can't show you any photos), you can make gelatin and frozen treats and also great cups to control portions when it comes to snacks.

I would recommend this product to everyone. They make great gifts and has lots of uses!

Hydracentials Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle Review


First of all, let me begin by saying that the only thing that I drink is water. I don't like juices (unless it is a really, really good lemonade), sodas or any sweet liquid. I just don't. I love my water cold, always, unless I am in an adventure outdoors.


This Hydracentials Insulated Water Bottle has been a great gift for me (Thanks Hydracentials for the free product). It has a capacity of 25 ounces and its double wall keeps my water cold for long periods of time. I always drink it all before I can tell it is not cold anymore.

The Hydracentials Insulated Water Bottle is made from 18/8 Food Grade Stainless Steel, so you don't have to worry about chemicals getting in your water. The flip up spout with straw is easy to flip and comfortable to drink from. The bottle doesn't leak, even shaking it or leaving it on its side for long periods of time.

The loop in the lid makes it easy to carry the bottle, or even secure it to your gym or outdoors backpack. The slim shape of the bottle is comfortable to hold and the size of the bottle can fit most cup holders.



One cool feature about the Hydracentials Insulated Water Bottle is the non-slip bottom. Where-ever you place your bottle, it won't move thanks to that non-slip pad on the bottom.

For cleaning do not put in dish washer, wash by hand and do not use bleach or hot liquids in it. Just wash it with some warm soapy water and let it air dry.


So far I have used this bottle for my son's milk while I am running errands, for my Zumba class, gym workouts, to the zoo and even sent it with my husband's lunch to keep him hydrated during the day. Thanks to its large capacity, we've been consuming more water than usual.


I would recommend this product to everyone! If you would like ti purchase the Hydracentials Insulated Water Bottle click on this link: Hydracentials Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle


After receiving the bottle you can request a kookie that fits it perfectly! :) I love it, although it is not necessary because the bottle doesn't sweat :)

Spaghetti Squash and Turkey Meatballs Recipe

In my efforts to eat healthier and eat less carbs I tried the spaghetti squash and now I am a huge fan! I learned about it with Hellen Cavallo from Disney Jr's That's Fresh. Funny uh? haha! The meatballs were on me, I made my own recipe and everybody loves it here, but I feel like I need to modify it a bit more, so I will share it soon! You can try Helen Cavallo's recipe, I bet you'll love it!


When I made my spaghetti squash for the first time my mom tried it and loved it too. When she went back to Puerto Rico, she wanted to make it herself, but since the spaghetti squash is a "rare" vegetable in Puerto Rico she had to pay $11.99 PER POUND!!!!! Can you believe that? I buy it here for $0.99-$1.99 maximum per pound! Crazy, crazy! Anyway, she bought it and ate the heck out of that spaghetti squash lol (she bought it once though $$)

Avocado Tuna Salad

I love avocado, I can live off avocado. Of course, California avocados are nothing close to Puerto Rico's, but they are still yummy! 

Since I am in a plan on eating healthy to lose some weight, I decided to cut mayonnaise a bit. So, today I made myself a tuna salad with avocado healthier version (although I sill added a bit of mayo to add creaminess). 


Is sounds weird, right? Oh, but is was soooo good and filling! You all have to try it!

BrAun ThermoScan5 Ear Thermometer Review

*I received this product for free from Influenster and BrAun for testing purposes. Regardless, all opinions are 100% my own.


So I was chosen to receive one of the famous VoxBoxes from Influenster. I was super excited as they started giving clues and all of us were trying to figure out what we were getting. When I found out I was getting the BraunTherms VoxBox I was super excited. I have a healthy 2 year old, so I never have had the necessity to have a super technological or modern thermometer. All I owned was the regular (mouth) thermometer that comes with the grooming kit that all mommies receive as a baby shower gift ;)
