Cuisinart Baby Review and Giveaway!

**I received this item for the purpose of a review. I was in no way compensated for my opinion as they are my own. Your opinion may vary from mine.**
Who knew Cuisinart had a baby line? Not this girl! Recently I was given the opportunity to try out the 2 in 1 Cuisinart Baby Food Maker and Bottle Warmer for review purposes and I had a blast in doing so! I've always wanted to make my daughter fresh pureed food from home but never invested the money into a device for that purpose. I'm so glad I had the chance to finally make her some fresh food.
I started out by making my daughter some fresh strawberry applesauce. At first I was a little overwhelmed when learning how to use the 2 in 1 Cuisinart Baby Food Maker and Bottle Warmer but it ended up being fairly easy. First I peeled and cut up some granny smith apples and cored a few strawberries. I know applesauce isn't normally made with Granny Smith Apples but my daughter loves the sour apples best so I figured, what the heck? (Don't forget to rinse your fruits and veggies!) Next, I pressed the release button on the cover of unit and lifted it to open. Using the handle, I placed the 4 cup bowl on top of the base and inserted the blade into the bowl, pressing firmly until it locked.
Next, I removed the measuring cup from the steam & bottle warming chamber, filled it with water to the marked position that went along with the amount of food being steamed (There is a steam chart listed in the directions). I poured the water into the steam chamber and placed the measuring cup back inside the chamber as well. I found it very convenient that the measuring cup sits snugly back in the steam/bottle warming chamber. I'm the master of losing things.

Ingredients were added to the bowl, next. I cut up two Granny Smith apples into small 1/2 pieces, pushed the bowl lid on to seal it, and lowered the cover until it locked. I turned the dial to steam and the LED light illuminated to blue to let me know steaming had begun.
This is where I got a little confused. It seemed like the Cuisinart Baby Food Maker and Bottle Warmer wasn't steaming so I shut the unit off to figure it out. I had left the water in the measuring cup instead of pouring into the warming chamber (duh). I fixed that then turned the dial back to steam but nothing happened. I had to read through the instructions to figure out what I had done wrong. Because of the safety features of the 2 in 1 Cuisinart Baby Food Maker and Bottle Warmer, the boiling chamber has to cool down before it can be used again. Easy fix, just pour really cold water into the boiling chamber then try again.
After the steaming was done, which takes around 10-20 minutes, I added 3 medium sized strawberries, turned the dial to chop, and pulsed it a few times to get the apples broken up. Once that was done, I added about an 8th of a cup of sugar and held the dial in the chop position for maybe 5 seconds. Viola, yummy Strawberry Applesauce that my daughter loved!

The 2 in 1 Cuisinart Baby Food Maker and Bottle Warmer can also warm your bottles in a matter of minutes. This is a much better option than exposing your child to radiation from the microwave. Instructions are pretty basic when warming a bottle and if you follow them correctly, the temperature will be perfect.

The 2 in 1 Cuisinart Baby Food Maker and Bottle Warmer has some pretty amazing safety features, is BPA free, and comes with everything you need to make the perfect food for your baby or toddler. Each unit comes with detailed instructions, tips, recipes, a steam chart to use for best results, and an 18 month limited warranty. I really enjoyed using the Cuisinart Baby Food Maker and Bottle Warmer and can't wait to try something new next time.
Cuisinart's Baby line also includes a baby bottle warmer with a built in night light, a baby bottle sterilizer, and baby food storage containers. To purchase any of these products including the Baby Food Maker and Bottle Warmer (which runs at $129), check out Cuisinart's website. Connect with Cuisinart on Twitter

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…

Rent College Textbooks and Save Up to 80%!

This is a "sponsored post." The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value. 

I recently went back to college to work on my Bachelor of Science degree for Nutrition. It's been about 7 years since I've had to purchase college textbooks and let me tell you, the prices have gone up dramatically! I registered for a Sociology class but had to drop it because I couldn't afford the book which was $239! That's outrageous!  I understand that I could always sell the book back to the school at the end of the semester, but, you and I both know that the colleges only offer you a fraction of what you paid. Plus, there was no way I could afford that book on top of my $200 Statistics book, graphing calculator, and two other textbooks needed for classes.  I like to save as much money as possible, especially on things I'll only be using for a short time. This is exactly why I'm using Campusbookrentals.com for the other two …
