Dexas Giveaway!

I love Dexas products.  We’ve been using them for years here, and they just do what they are suppose to.  They last.  I don’t ask much more out of my kitchen stuff than that.  I have several products I want to tell you about, and I’m giving away a Dexas prize pack to one lucky reader!

Screen Shot 2013-05-01 at 9.41.54 PMThe Chop & Scoop cutting board has an innovative design ideal for cutting juicy fruits and vegetables. The curved edges keep juices contained, and the unique shape and grip handle make it easy to chop, lift, and scoop foods into pans and bowl. It is made with 100% virgin polypropylene.  This cutting board is non-stick, non-absorbent, odor resistant and will not dull knives.  Best of all, it is dishwasher safe!

I love this cutting board.  For my house, it is the perfect size.  Besides using it to cut fruits and vegetables, it is the perfect size for grilling outdoors.  Granted, that’s not a cutting board use, but I love products that can be used for many things.  Bill’s grilled hamburgers many times, and we used this to bring the burgers back in the house!  I really like this and can only recommend it!

Screen Shot 2013-05-01 at 9.48.00 PMI absolutely love this KlipScoops. These scoops literally help with your portion control. The pre-measured volume helps avoid overfeeding! The attached clip allows you to seal your pet food or bag of chips depending on how you are using it. They collapse flat for storage savings and while using as clip. These too are dishwasher-safe.

As someone who is watching her weight, I love these. They allow me to snack while still maintaining my weight loss. They come in 1/2 cup, 1 cup, and 2 cup varieties, so there are many things you can use them on and with! I do think they are pretty sweet.

Screen Shot 2013-05-01 at 9.53.45 PMThese Salad Hands are ideal for tossing, scooping, and serving salads, pasta, and more! These uniquely designed salad hands with rubber grip handles keep hands from slipping into the bowl. They are non-porous & non-absorbent and made from a durable poly with grip handles. Best of all, they are dishwasher-safe & food safe.

As somebody who eats salads daily, I love this! It beats using my hands to get my lettuce out! It also works super great for parties!

Screen Shot 2013-05-01 at 9.56.51 PMThis generous size 5 quart salad bowl has a color accent non-slip grip handle and non-skid base. It sets a beautiful complement to salad and pastas. This too is dishwasher safe.

Love this product. I love that I can use it both for salads or chips! It is truly an all purpose bowl especially when you add the Klipkup. It is just the perfect size for so many things! Its great for chips at home with your family or for a party.

Screen Shot 2013-05-01 at 10.01.09 PM The Klipkup is awesome. It has a 8oz./1 Cup capacity, and its sturdy clip securely attaches to most bowls and serveware. It is perfect for dips, salsa, salad fixings, ice cream toppings, and much more! It has a stainless Steel spring, is made of safe ABS, and best of all, is dishwasher safe.

Love this! It is the perfect size!

Screen Shot 2013-05-01 at 10.11.26 PMTurbo Fan Salad Spinner is an in sink salad spinner with turbo fan air dryer. Unlike conventional salad spinners that use centrifugal force only, the DEXAS turbo fan spinner also adds large volumes of air to actually blow water off greens and vegetables. The DEXAS Turbo Fan lever spinning handle gears up to high speed quickly and effortlessly engaging the fan with every spin cycle to pull air in and push water out of the basket.

Now, you have to use this in your sink or you will have water everywhere. My only complaint is that I have to transfer my lettuce out of here to store. However, it definitely performs as advertised! Your lettuce definitely comes out dryer, and it is easy to take apart to throw into the dishwasher.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Low-Carb Meals

In the world of weight-loss and health-oriented diets, low-carb dieting continues to be highly popular. Today’s low-carb diets rely on cutting down on starchy and high calorie carbohydrates and replacing them with protein, low-carb vegetables and fruit, and healthy fats. However, many low-carb diet cookbooks read as if they were written by scientists, not foodies.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Low-Carb Meals is a cookbook focused on the art and love of delicious recipes with a low-carb twist. This book includes:

• Over 350 low-carb recipes
• Vegetarian and vegan selections
• Nutritional information for each recipe (which is my favorite!!!!)
• Dessert recipes plus an entire chapter on low-carb chocolate treats
• Options for fantastic salads, bread and pasta recipes, grains, potatoes, rice, desserts, and fruit

With everything from quick or leisurely breakfasts to late-night snacks, The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Low-Carb Meals, Second Edition offer hundreds of delicious recipes for both the dieter and the health-conscious cook that appeal to the family and are easy to make.  It just makes cooking for yourself and your family so much easier.  I love anything that actually tells me the nutritional content so I don’t have to try and guess it, so this cookbook scores high just for that!  It also has a great range of recipes that are actually good!  That and whole chapter of one pot cooking makes it a must get cookbook!

Aloha Chill’R

When you have a kid with a summer birthday, you are always looking for a way to keep salads cool (or at least I am).  I think I have found the perfect thing!  It’s called an Aloha Chill’R.  The Aloha Chill’R is the perfect practical, durable, and elegant serving dish for anything you need to keep cool.  It is made with one of the highest grade of acrylic available and is scratched resistant it.  Best of all, it is dishwasher safe.

I recently got to try out the Aloha Big Chiller.  It consists of 3 compartments:  the bottom pan that holds the ice, the inner compartment, and a dome covers that keeps the flies & bugs out.

This is super easy to use.  You just add ice to the lower compartment:

Once you’ve added the ice (and if it’s hot outside, add a lot more than I did in that picture), you can use the next container and add your salad, dip, etc.

Now, here’s the cool part.  The section you have the salad in, you can keep in the fridge till you need it and add it to the bottom when you put it out for your party!  Here’s what it looks like when finished:

Now, you don’t have to worry about your mayo based salads.  I’m amazed at how much this holds.  I made a tuna salad that normally feeds everybody at our family parties.  I could make a double batch, and it would still fit!  I love how sleek it looks, and it its way better looking than sticking your bowls into bigger bowls filled with ice.  The Aloha Chill’R comes in various sizes too.

I love my Aloha Chill’R.  I can only recommend you get one for your next party!
