Squooshi Reusable Food Pouches

My wife recently found the Squooshi Reusable Food Pouches. They make it possible to buy a big tub of applesauce and make your own applesauce pouches. If he wants a second helping, all you have to do is refill it. They are incredibly easy to clean with warm water and dish soap. The bottom is sealed with a high quality zipper, and we have had no issues with them accidentally opening or leaking. They come with a reusable twist off cap for the top, so they are easy to travel with.

Frontier Organic Ground Ceylon Cinnamon

Up until recently, I’ve been happily buying saigon cinnamon to sprinkle on oatmeal and toast (and sometimes my coffee). That is, until I heard that out of all the cinnamon varieties out there, saigon contained by far and away the highest levels of the liver-damaging substance coumarin. Yikes. The type of cinnamon with the least coumarin is known as ceylon—also known as…

Waring Pro WMK600 Double Belgian-Waffle Maker

I grew up eating (and loving) cheap frozen waffles, so when my wife and I received a Belgian waffle maker as a wedding gift a few years ago, we didn’t expect to use it much. Once we finally tried it though, we knew there was no going back. The only downside is that the process is slow, especially noticeable when we have…
