Stainless Steel Earth Pan from Ozeri

I was given an opportunity to receive this 10" Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri,  for review.   This is rated 5 stars  with its longer lasting 100% PFOA-Free Non-Stick Coating developed in the USA.  If you  remember reading my previous posts, I have been scouting  in the store for a good  non-stick pans but  haven't got the chance to find one that I like.  Thanks to Ozeri for giving me this chance because this ETERNA  is made of the highest quality  stainless steel with TriPly construction and a polished mirror exterior.

The thing that concerns me with non stick pans is the harmful toxins.  I am so glad to know that ETERNA is an eco-friendly pan that delivers unprecedented performance without releasing harmful  fumes even on high temperatures.  Cleaning is very easy as the  build up or remaining  food in it just slides off easily with a a mild scrub  of your soft  dish cloth.  We love using it because  making an egg is no longer a battle compared to  cooking it on a regular stainless steel pan that we have.  We have bought several non stick before from different brands but this is by far that one that we love the most.

You can buy this a through Amazon for $38.95 now that is on sale.  This is regularly priced at $99.95 so you will have a chance to enjoy a big savings of $61.  So, if you are looking for a  perfect non-stick pan to use for your kitchen, I highly recommend this ETERNA, it is awesome.  My daughter is cooking   breakfast right now and she keep saying that the  new pan we have is  great for making her  crepe.  To  find out what other products Ozeri have, check out their Facebook  page and like them so you won't miss  what's new  from them.  Thank you so much Ozeri!

Chicken Tikka Masala

I got the  privilege  to  explore the Indian cuisine through the Chicken Tikka Masala spice blend that I received from Love With Food.  My husband love Indian food but I have never tried any so I was excited when I saw the  mix  included in the box.  The recipe  was very easy to  make and I had fun   cooking with my daughter.

Here is the step by step for Arora Creations Chicken Tikka Masala:

You will need:
  • 3/4 cup olive oil (I only used one table spoon)
  • 1 medium onion minced (I used half)
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless  chicken cubes (I only used two pieces medium size of chicken breasts)
  • 1/2 cup minced ginger (I used 1 teaspoon)
  • 4 cloves garlic minced (I used  a little bit of Garlic Gold Nugget as I am not fond of garlic)
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce (I used my homemade tomato sauce)
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro (I used dried parsley)
*Just ignore the changes I made to the ingredients, I cooked  based on what I  have  available in my kitchen.
How to Cook:
  • Heat oil in a sauce pan over medium heat for 1 minute.
  • Add onion, ginger, garlic,  and cook until light brown.
  • Add Arora Creation Chicken Tikka Masala spice blend and stir constantly for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add tomato sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add chicken cubes and cook stirring frequently for 8-10 minutes.
  • Finally add 3/4 cup water, stir once, cover and cook for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and garnish with cilantro (I used dried parsley on mine).

You can served this over hot  rice or Indian bread.  We ate ours with  steamed rice.

I have a very sensitive sense of smell and because Indian  foods has a lot of different spices, it made me nauseous.  I love how it tasted though despite the smell.  The kids love them and  so is the husband.  Over all, we had a success on our first Indian cuisine adventure.  I may or may not cook Indian food again but we will see.

Love With Food

I received a  goodie box from Love with Food for review.  It is nice that  subscription boxes  whether for food or other  products are becoming trend nowadays because you get to try different products that  you don't normally buy from the store on a  regular basis.  

In all honesty, I don't know any of the  foods that  was inside this box  so I will break it down to you.  The box contains:
  • Tuxedo Pop Corn from Kukuruza
  • Green and Black's Organic Chocolate
  • Maple  Fudge from Laura Secord
  • Ginger Twist Tea from Mighty Leaf
  • Almond, Apricot, and Yogurt Bar from Eat Natural
  • Rosemary Sea Salt Shortbread from Dancing Deer Baking Company
  • Sweet Corn Crunch from Sensible Foods
  • Authentic Indian spice blend from Arora Creations
  • Sweet Potato Popchips from Popchips.
  • Some coupons and  recipes

The first thing that we tried is the short bread with a gentle  blend of fresh rosemary and pink sea salt infused in butter, I love this shortbread!  I give this  two thumbs up because it isn't very sweet and the  light sea salt is very  interesting  twist.

My husband love Indian food but I have never  tried any so I was really excited when I saw this   spice blend mix in the box.  I made the Chicken Tikka Masala  the other night and we loved  it!

I love the slogan of the Popchips "Love without the handles", funny and catchy.  I am the only one who liked this.   like it because  I love sweet potato and it is interesting to eat it  in a different form.
I am not really crazy about this  gourmet popcorn because I love my popcorn a bit crunchy when I pop it in my mouth but because they drizzled  milk and white chocolate on it, it became a bit stale or something like that in texture.
I can't describe the other products I have mentioned in the list above because we haven't tried it yet.  Over all, this Flavor of Fall box has a very interesting  choices of healthy snacks.  My favorite is the  authentic  Indian spice blend mix as I got to explore the  Indian cuisine  for the first time.  You can  see the dish by clicking the link above.
