Tiny Tidbits: Cutting Board Safety

Hi Everyone!

Don’t you just hate it when you’re cutting vegetables and the cutting board starts to slide all over the place? Not only is this super annoying, it’s also pretty dangerous. I mean, your cutting vegetables with a sharp knife, and that knife is in close proximity to your fingers. One slide of the cutting board and – well you get the point.

There’s a really easy way to fix this and keep your fingers intact! Simple take a dish towel, a wet paper towel or a rubber mat and set it under the cutting board. The cutting board will stop sliding around, and you’ll be able to cut a lot easier!

Thanks for reading!

Product Review: GoGo squeeZ

Hi Everyone!

GoGo squeeZ recently contacted me through Twitter and sent me some of their applesauce flavors for me to taste. I received AppleApple, AppleCinnamon, ApplePeach, AppleStrawberry and AppleBanana applesauce. The applesauces come in cute pouches that are perfect for eating in the car, at a picnic or at the pool!

The AppleApple flavor was delicious! It was super flavorful and had the perfect amount of sweetness. You can tell that they use only the best ingredients in their applesauce.

The next flavor was AppleCinnamon. I’m not a huge fan of applesauce with cinnamon, but I really enjoyed GoGo squeeZ’s! There was a hint of cinnamon, but it didn’t overpower the applesauce.

ApplePeach is my favorite flavor! Peaches and apples go great together; they’re both sweet and they both have a unique flavor. The ApplePeach flavor tastes great; the flavors combine very well together. It’s the perfect flavor for summer!

AppleStrawberry is really good; it’s sweet and is a great summer snack! The strawberries compliment the apple incredibly! I would have never thought about mixing strawberries and apples!

The final flavor I tried was AppleBanana. Apple and banana is a classic combination; but who would have thought about mixing them together in applesauce?

You can find GoGo squeeZ at Whole Foods, Costco, Walmart, Target, Harris Teeter, and Publix. Check out their website www.gogosqueez.com, drop them a tweet gogosqueez or stop by i.like.gogosqueez

All of the flavors were delicious, but my favorite flavor was ApplePeach. I can honestly say that GoGo squeeZ applesauce is extremely easy to eat when on the go (no spoon needed) and is all natural.
