Spice Stack in Silver

Youcopia is very nice for giving me an opportunity to work with them.  They gave me an Original SpiceStack in Silver, an  18-Bottle Spice Rack Organizer for free in return of my honest review.  I have been wanting  to have one of this because all my spices were  occupying most of cupboard space and it is very hard to  get it when I need it.  
I love the silver color that they sent me because it matched all our kitchen appliances.  I like it now that I have it because I don't have to take time digging for the spice that I need in the cabinet.  I can just get it  in no time with the super organizer Spice Stack.
They also sent printed  labels of different spices and blank labels as well  so you can make your own if its not included in the  printed ones that  they give you.
YouCopia  also  has Coffee and Espresso Stack, Medicine and Vitamins, and different kinds for spices  which includes ministack, riginal spicestack, silver spicestack (which I have), classic spice stack, and chef edition spice stack.  Check their selection.   You may watch the video below to see how easy it is to access your spices.

Disclaimer:  The product was given for free, there 's no monetary compensation involve.

Almond Benefits

I love just about any type of nuts.  Be it  peanuts, walnuts, pili nuts, cashews, and more.  One of my favorites is the almonds.  I usually buy the whole almonds, I snack on it when I am doing my online  tasks or when I am watching TV with  my kids.
According to the article that I read online, almonds has a lot of health benefits, below are some of them.

  • Best fat burning food due to its good fiber content.
  • Its tryptophan  content makes it very  good for brain development.
  • Its magnesium content helps in reducing risks of cardiac arrest.
  • Its phosphorous helps in developing brains and muscle tissues
  • Folic Acid and Vitamin B contents helps reduce birth defects in fetus that's why  most  OB GYNE recommends this for pregnant women.
  • Almonds also improves skin and hair texture.  

Aside from regular almonds, there are also wild almonds  which contains glycocide which turns into  cyanide

Honoring Veterans

One of the nicest Moms in both of my Burrito's classes surprised us with a cake for my husband during the Veteran's day celebration. She said that her family has a lot of respect for the Veterans so every year, they give each family something to thank them for their services. In our neighborhood, there are four Veterans but she only know three so she delivered three cakes during that day.  
Her husband is a doctor and they are very active with  a lot of activities in school.  She's the very first  one who  welcomed us in school, so thank you very much Marie and the whole family of Mascio!
