Green Earth Pan -- OZERI

You would think I would start this blog post and say " another non stick pan, will it work?" but I wont. I wanted to give this pan a new outlook on how I feel about non-stick pans which for some reason never work well for me. So to start, it came in a rather attractive box, singled out and stating that it was the Green Earth Pan.

From the packaging it states the size I received (8" pan) and that it featured Greblon.

What is GREBLON? Well after doing some research, it is non stick technology used on cookware. It is a natural ceramic coating that creates a non stick base that is free of any PTFE, PFOA and/or harmful chemicals.

I am assuming this is the basis of the name, GREEN EARTH PAN. One thing, I absolutely love is the textured ceramic coating of the pan surface. This helps in preventing the food from sticking to the bottom. This pan is also eco-friendly, safe, scratch resistant and extremely durable.This allows you to use very little oil with your cooking, which makes cleaning up very easy. With that said, OZERI really has made a product built to last and in my opinion worth every penny.

Inside the box also comes this protector that is so neat to me because it was unexpected and cute. This protector prevents any scratching and any contact to the ceramic coating when the pan is stacked among others. We all do it, stack pots and pans on top each other or inside one another.

The bottom of the pan is also elevated so the heat is distributed evenly for even better cooking. This pan can be used on both flame stoves and induction stoves and it will still provide quality.

When I used this pan, I made french toast and scrambled eggs for my family of 4. Normally, it would take long for me to finish, everything for everyone so by the time I am done the french toast is usually cold. Urghhh.. First noticeable difference was the time I spent on frying the french toast, It took under a minute on both sides, that I actually left it longer (did not burn) to make sure that it cooked all the way through. I did 10 french toast in 15 minutes and that included prep time. I must say I was proud of myself, but I can not take the credit because this pan cooked so well. I was able to just wipe off the pan and fry the eggs without adding any extra oil. This has to be the quickest I have prepared breakfast for my family.

This Green Earth Pan by Ozeri comes highly recommended by myself and I am sure by others that have used it. Right now on Amazon you can by the set of 3 pans (8", 10" & 12") for $66.00 and it is definitely worth it. Imagine that these pans are actually non stick without any toxins, durable, cooks quick and even easier to clean. This pan is a must have especially for the Christmas season for your cooking and ofcourse as a wonderful gift.

Stretch Mark & Scar Cream - By InstaNatural

I want to say first and foremost, that I have used InstaNatural products in the past and they have yet to fail me. I only let you know that first because I always have high expectation for a company that delivers good products, therefore I would be looking at the product I am reviewing even more carefully.

So today I am reviewing InstaNatural's Stretch Mark & Scar Cream (Prevention and Reduction). It is sold on Amazon.com for around $24.00 for the 5 fl oz bottle. Now I thought that the price was not attractive only because normally for the size it would run around $19.99 but then again stretch mark creams are in abundance and do not work as I have tried many after having my second kid.

Now I have had over 30 days to use this product and give my evaluation. Lets start with my overall feel ------- LOVE IT!!!... It started to show results quick. I have literally waited months for a product to show me results without success. This is not true for this cream, after a week or so I saw a difference. I used it predominantly on my tummy and butt and sometimes thighs.

This cream offered me a boost of confidence when I saw that the stretch marks appearance was reducing almost to the point that I felt comfortable in a 2-pc bathing suit again (ALMOST)... To start it contains many ingredients that are helpful in minimizing appearance and moisturizing your skin. From vitamin c, cocoa butter, rosehip oil, mango butter and aloe vera, your skin becomes more youthful and healthier. I have been applying morning and night and the results have only been getting better the longer I use.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies - {Game Review}

If you have ever met me then you should know that I am a bit of a gamer (got it from my mom). I love games that involves puzzles and lots of thinking, that I feel like I have conquered after I beat it. I got t test out from Her Interactive their game Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies for PC and I started playing immediately.

So to begin, I arrive on a play set of a Greek mythological scene to the sounds of scream. I (Nancy Drew) of course would run to investigate and help but it was all part of the act. This is where I start to learn and meet the actors and actresses. I (Nancy Drew) was hired by the museums curator where the play is set to be shown because the artifacts are mysteriously disappearing.

If you have ever heard about Nancy Drew, then you would know that she is an investigator and often gets help from the Hardy Brothers, whom will be a phone call away if you need and you will need them. Through out the game you will meet various actors and actresses who will slowly become more intriguing as the game progresses.

Some will be flat out rude and some will be kind and polite. But their personalities will soon change as you find out more secrets about them. Through out the game you will need to engage in a number of puzzles to be able to get things a little more in perspective.

Solved puzzles will help you along your way immensely and there is no going around it. You are able to play this game in three (3) levels and you must try to pay attention to what is being said and the things around you. You will get the options of using hints which in most cases come in handy and rare cases where it will take too long. Overall a fun game which keeps you thinking so that you are able to solve who is taking the museum artifacts and please your employer.
