Smoker Box from Cave Tools

The Cave Tools Smoker box works great! We used it on a round Kettle, charcoal style grill. It is meant to be able to sit with nothing on top so that you can still open the box and add more chips, if you would like to. To use on the grill that we did, you have to pull the top grate and put more chips in. Then had to move the box to add more coals. Then put the grate back on. Not a super easy task but does get the job done. Our steaks were still super yummy and had an amazing smoked taste.

However, on a propane grill it would work great. All you would need to do is put Cave Tools Smoker box on the top of one of the fuel lines and let it smoke.

This is a great little invention for those just stating to learn how to smoke their own meat.

The specs for this Smoker Box

25% thicker stainless steal
(this prevents warping)
Hinged lid for easy opening and closing
Large wood chip capacity for thicker smoke
No bottom holes this allows the wood chips to smoke and not catch fire
Thinner profile fits perfecty between flavorizer bars and grill grate

Cave Tools has a giveaway every month. To enter just go to www.cavetools.com/freebies

We have quite a few Cave Tools and love them all. You could literally have a BBQ feast using all Cave Tool products. Would make great gifts for that Dad who has everything or for that picky Grandpa. Neither would be disappointed with their gifts!

Would you like a great deal on a smoker box from Amazon?
Code for 15% off smoker box is SMOKERBOX15


You can also purchase straight from their website $17.99

Cave Tools Meat Tenderizer

So, to be honest, I had never used a meat tenderizer before. This tool is actually sort of neat.

Before getting this tool, we would use a fork or knife to poke at the meat and then soak it in the marinade. It was a hit or miss as to whether it would taste like the marinade or just the meat. I was surprised with the way this actually made the meat taste better. My husband wasn't as quick to grab the ketchup or A1.

Now, this has 48 VERY sharp blades. This should not be used by the younger crowd. This is only my opinion.

Why should you try a meat tenderizer?
A meat tenderizer can help break down the connective tissues in the meat. It reduces cook times, allows the meat to cook evenly, it absorbs the marinade quicker and softens up the meat.

What is the difference between a blade tenderizer and a mallet style?
The blade type pierces the meat and tenderizes while the mallet tenderizer uses force and usually just flattens the meat and breaks down the connective tissues. Both methods of tenderizing works very well. Blade type also helps the marinade sink in deeper.

This box, that you receive, will come with the hand blade tenderizer, bottom detachable piece that encases the blades and a nice plastic bottom to hold the tenderizer.

This is dishwasher safe. That is a nice plus. Since this is so sharp, washing by hand would be difficult.

Each tenderizer comes with a 25 recipe Barbeque recipe book, for free.

This can be used on so many types of meat:
country fried steak, weiner schnitzel and cordon bleu - Stainless steel blade tenderizer is perfect accessories for pounding chicken, steak, beef, and other tough cuts of meat

You can purchase this product and others from http://www.cavetools.com



You can also purchase from Amazon.com for $12.99

Kinzd Lichee Pattern Magnetic Leather Money Clip

Love these wallets. I have 3 that I am working on reviewing. This one is great. It has a photo id pocket in the front. It has a money clip back. Heavy duty magnet to hold your $ in. I like that if you don't want to use the money clip, it has a pouch. It doesn't open a lot but it will hold some change and a few bills.

When you flip it over, it has room for 3 gift cards, credit cards or store saving cards. Each one of these is pretty stiff. This is a good thing so that your cards do not fall out. Perfect if you don't want to carry around a full size wallet.

Pine Bros Cough Drops

These are amazing cough drops. You get the same cough surpressing action without the medicine taste. Most cough drops have a bite, Pine Bros does not. The other thing I love about Pine Bros is that their cough drops aren't hard. They have an almost gummy texture to them. Have you ever been sucking on a cough drop and move it just right, it cuts your tongue! No worries with these. Plus, these are safe to give your kids. I would say no one under 4 years, though. 

The texture comes from being made with plant glycerin and gum acacia. 

You will not be disappointed. you can find at almost any drug store and Walmart. The prices is also very affordable!

Lime Green Silicone Cutting Board

I personally love this board. It is thick so will not bend under your cuts. I was cutting pretty hard and there are no marks on the mat. The green color is nice and bright. This won't get lost in the cupboards. You can roll up and "lock" into place to pour out the food you cut. VERY easy to wash, when done. I just used hot water and soap. I like that sort of clean up!

You can purchase this cutting board for $17.97

TrashPod for your Vehicle

I hate that my vehicle is always a mess! We are always on the go. Between activities, work schedules, errands and travel. Each vehicle takes a beating.

When you are on the go, what is the one thing that gets done the most? Yup, you guessed it....you grab fast food. Kids are famous for tossing the wrappers on the floor. Then you get in a hurry and the trash stays. Before you know it, the vehicle is a trash pit. Or you can just simply have a cup here or a wrapper there. Either way, a trash pod is the way to go. No more Walmart bags, that make just as much a mess as no Walmart bag.

This trash pod is made of a nice sturdy material. It will not break open like a trash bag. My favorite amenity is it's leakproof liner.

The Original AVAROE Car Trash Bag. Your search for the best Car Garbage Bag is now over.Because we thoroughly researched piles of user feedback, and listened to what you were telling us...Certainly once somebody realized how versatile owning a car trash bag was they were ecstatic to own one.

The Trashpod is 12x7x11 in; The bag is cheap looking and made of low quality materials (We fixed this by using a metal frame and ultra high quality 600D polyester fabric into a beautiful design)You may we wondering what is the big deal, at the end of the day, this is just a car trash can, That is correct! However, here at AVAROE we are so passionate about our products and meticulous with our design, we believe this is what distinguishes us from our competitors.So if you are looking to clean up your car, grab your TrashPod Today! perhaps 2 as they make a great gift.AVAROE passionately works for you to research great automotive products.

Lasten Wooden Rolling Pin

My 15 year old, daughter, loves to bake! The one thing she has repeatedly asked for is a rolling pin.

There are many different rolling pins out there. You can get plastic, metal, ones with designs on them and wood. I have looked up so many of them to see which is the best. Plastic can melt a little over time or become misshapen. Metal has been a good contender on which one to pick. I thought just for the fun of it getting one with the little designs. But, after seeking it out. The dough can get stuck in some of the little grooves and then it's a mess. So wood it is!

This does not have handles on the end, like some of the rolling pins. I have found that those tend to come loose after time. I like the one piece shape of this pin.

This Lasten rolling pin is easy to use. Easy to wash, also. Which, if you have baked, that is a good product attribute. Baking is a messing thing in itself. I personally really liked this pin.

You can purchase this rolling pin and it's 100% money back guarantee (if not satisfied)for $8.99

Beets Blu Bluetooth Wireless Key or Lost Item Finder

This was actually a pretty cool idea! My oldest 2 children loose their keys, cell phones, wallets and more. My son went to the play store on our Galaxy S5 and attached this to his phone for his wallet. Just slip this device in your wallet, purse, cell phone case, onto your keychain. You can go into the "app" site and it will ring an alarm so that you can find your missing item.

You can buy multiple key fobs. This is great for bigger families. Everyone can have the Pager tag. These are not that expensive. It will definitely save you time in the morning on the way out the door if you have set your keys down somewhere while getting ready!

If you can figure a way of attaching this to your tv remote, ya might be set! We lose ours all the time.

Compact size. This little device is about the size of a silver dollar. The noise is loud enough, from the alarm, to hear even if it's in a crowded purse.

You can purchase this handy device for $19.95


Beets Blu has other Bluetooth products. Just look up Beets Blu on Amazon.

Mini USB Port Type C Multi Charger Cable

How many of you have a house with multiple devices? I know that with a household of 10, we constantly are trading chargers. We finally had to use different colors of polish because everyone kept taking off with the others cords. This Jastek 5 device charger cord is cool! I can charge both kids tablets so that neither gets upset that theirs isn't charging yet.

We do not have any apple products, but if we did, we could charge them at the same time as both tablets.

With so many different things you can charge, your life should be a little bit at ease. No more arguing and fighting. You can plug the USB piece into a charging block or laptop. Take it on the go and charge from your car.

You can purchase this set from Amazon for $9.99

Colordrift Christina 54 x 84 Inches Curtain with Grommet Finish - Neutral

My living room looks so pretty today! I was just able to put these up. I now look like I have a home. With a bare open window, it just was blah.

Now look at it! Elegant design. Pretty colors. Works great with most d├ęcor.

You can purchase these curtains from Amazon for $(they are sold out so no pricing available)


Nowborn Baby Grooming Kit

This little grooming set is nice. It has 7 pieces. Baby clippers, baby scissors, a comb, brush, toothbrush for toddlers, a gum brush for babies and the neat carry bag. The carry bag is a nice sturdy material. Most carry bags for grooming sets are plastic or a thin material. I'm pretty sure that this material would withstand the beating of a diaper bag.

I like the colors. You could, in my opinion, use this for a boy or girl.

Great baby shower gift! I would have loved one of these for mine.

This company has many more products. search for Nowborn ;)

You can purchase this set from Amazon for $19.99



Electronic Pencil Sharpener with USB attatchments

I am in love with this product because it has a USB option!! I hate going through batteries. I was able to plug it in to a USB wall charger or my computer. There aren't many companies that have this option for their product. I have 4 in school and 1 homeschooled. We have to sharpen pencils on a VERY regular basis. It is nice to be able to do it without it being one of the small hand held sharpeners. Those take some good hand power.

USB is the way to go!

You can purchase this USB sharpener for $9.96

The Moodsters Feeling Notebook and Feelings Crayons

I have a little girl with Sensory Integration (processing) Disorder. (SPD) She is in Occupational Therapy and a couple other therapies. One of them is talking about her feelings. She asks me, everyday, after school if I am happy. Then we go through the conversation about happy and sad. What makes us happy and what makes us sad or angry. I love this little booklet and crayons. At 3, feelings are so hard to express. With this Moodster book, she can point to the colors. (which she only knows purple so this also helps with colors) She can pick the one that fits her mood and we can talk about it. I believe this would be great for children with Autism! I think that this book will help your child or the child you know, express themselves.

There are 5 Moodsters. Quigly is afraid. Lolly is loving. Coz is happy. Snorf is sad. Razzy is angry.

Some little games you can play with your kids and watch how they react are:

During a playdate, have the kids draw pictures of how they are feeling, then talk about their drawings.

When your child seems angry or frustrated, suggest they use the Moodsters Feelings Notebook and Feelings Crayons to draw a picture to show why he or she is upset. Talk about how keeping upset feelings inside can cause all kinds of aches and pains!

There are 2 other Moodsters books for you to check out.

Meet the Moodsters. This book looks like it comes with a flashlight.

The Scary Sleepover. Looks like it comes with a mood thermometer.

You should really check them out at www.themoodsters.com

I fully put my Heaven Sent Six stamp of approval on this set! I was sent this sent in exchange for my honest review. All views and comments are my own.

Earths Care Health and Beauty Products

My 2 older daughters have suffered with acne. We have tried a few products and some worked, some did not. My oldest even went to a dermatologist. Not for the acne but they did address it. The oldest has psoriasis. Earths Care has a good product for acne. It is called Acne Spot Treatment. The girls said that it was not greasy. It didn't smell like alcohol. It didn't really dry out their faces. These are common effects of most acne creams and products. Why treat the whole face when the zit is the only part needing treated. Spot care is the best for this.
