Powerbeats2 Review Weve Tried It

WTI: What stands out the most about your new Powerbeats2?
Jacque: They actually fit snug to my ear! And I love the design. They just look cool and the sound is great.

WTI: We know that you use earphones for working out, how do they fit to your ear?
Jacque: Perfectly, this is by far the best fit I have had.

WTI: In the past you have used other brands of earphones, tell us the difference.
Jacque: I have tried more than I care to admit of wired headsets. They drive me crazy always getting tangled up. I have another wireless set of Jaybird Bluebuds. Great sound, but they just don’t stay in my ear. Not a good fit. The biggest difference is the fit. The sound is really good too! Both for music and being on the phone.

WTI: Is there anything different you would like to see in your Powerbeats2?
Jacque: Louder its never loud enough. But I say that about every pair. I like it really loud! #reallyloud

WTI: Would you recommend Powerbeats2 to your friends?
Jacque: Yes, I plan on giving Powerbeats2 as Christmas gifts to my music lovers.

Thanks Jacque for the review, I sure hope I am on your music lover list for Christmas!

Lemon Loaf Cake Recipe

Lemon Loaf Cake Recipe

Lemon Loaf Cake Recipe: I love just about anything lemon! Lemon bars, lemon cake, lemonade, lemon skittles and even just straight lemons! My favorite is the lemon loaf cake from Starbucks and was hoping to recreate that.

There are so many recipes out there for different kinds of lemon cakes, but until now I wasn’t getting the full lemon flavor that I was looking for. Combining a couple recipes I came up with the perfect one for flavor, but not as dense as Starbucks.

My initial plan was to make extra and share with some friends, so I made both a loaf and cupcakes. Truth be told the cupcakes were done first and we ate most of them before the loaf was even finished baking. There will be no sharing.

Batter Ingredients:
1 box yellow cake mix
2.9 oz box cook & serve lemon pudding
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
8 ounces sour cream
6 tablespoons lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 loaf pans (9×5) or cupcake pans with cooking spray.

Combine all cake ingredients into mixing bowl. Mix for 1 1/2 minutes. Pour batter into prepared loaf or cupcake pans. For loaf pans bake for about 50 minutes. For cupcake pans bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from oven and let cool for about 10 minutes before removing from pans. Let cool completely before frosting.

Icing Ingredients:
2 cups powders sugar
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon water

Combine powdered sugar, lemon juice and water (if needed) in medium bowl. Drizzle icing over completely cooled loaves or cupcakes and enjoy.

Both the loaves and cupcakes turned out light and fluffy and were a great treat for my family.

Menu Baggy Winecoat Review

Menu Baggy Winecoat

Menu Baggy Winecoat Review: Just when we thought we had seen it all! You can now disguise your wine or any beverage for that matter in a purse like tote.

Now we should be honest and say that we have not tried this. But, we have many friends who enjoy wine and would probably use this “winecoat” often.

Seems genius! The product has been designed from a 31 Bag-in-Box. The spout opening will fit all standard taps. You can adjust the size of the bag by rolling or folding the belt.

The rubber base gives the winecoat the stability it needs so you don’t have to worry about the bag spilling. You can purchase in black or white.

Menu Baggy Winecoat white

Need your wine to be chilled? No worries there is plenty of room to add cold packs. Another notable benefit would be if you aren’t a wine drinker you can purchase disposable beverage bags and fill your tote with your drink of choice.

This seems like a great gift for that hard to shop for friend. Tell us what you think, would you use the Winecoat? Leave us a comment below.

Here are the links to purchase the Menu Baggy Winecoat and the disposable beverage bags:

Make Caramel From Sweetened Condensed Milk

photo 1

Make Caramel From Sweetened Condensed Milk: Is it really possible to make caramel just using sweetened condensed milk? We love caramel, so we put it to the test!

If you have ever tried to make homemade caramel you know it can be tricky to make. After reading that all you need to do is boil a can of sweetened condensed milk for 2 1/2 hours and like magic, you have caramel…we knew we had to try it!

We set out to see if it was just that easy. Watch the video below to see how it turned out for us.

It is important to let your sweetened condensed milk completely cool after taking it out of the boiling water and before opening the lid. The caramel will also thicken upon sitting in the refrigerator.

We are planning on pouring our caramel over ice cream and brownies. Delicious! It would also be perfect for dipping sliced apples in. The options are endless.

Do you have any quick cooking tips that you think we should test? Comment below we love to try it out!
