Frank's RedHot Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

So, I tried out a second recipe in the Cooking with Frank's RedHot Cayenne Pepper Sauce book. This time their Amazing Glazed Turkey Meatloaf. The recipe called for both Frank's RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce AND Frank's RedHot THICK Cayenne Pepper Sauce. I didn't have both. While my ground turkey was only 20 ounces instead of the called for two pounds, it definitely needed a little more bite in it, which probably was the missing THICK sauce. Still good, but needed a little more kick with just the one sauce.

They support children through education, arts funding, wellness programs and special needs inclusion – again, this goes straight to my heart strings since I have special needs children who need all the support they can get. And finally they support research and development for health issues for women and their community outreach through Therafit’s One Step Forward Giving Program. All great social supports and definitely doing what they can to make a difference in the world and in our lives.

Simple Grill BBQ Grill Mat Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
So, the weather in Boston has been below zero the past few weeks, and I've wanted to review this Simple Grill BBQ Grill Mat I got through Tomoson. I may be a little crazy, but its just too cold to grill right now. What I can do with them though is bake cookies. They're great liners for cookie sheets.
Let's step back a little first and talk about what we have here. The product is from Simple Grillin' and the product is a grill mat, or two as the case may be, each measuring 13" x 16". Basically, you place one or both of the mats on the grill and cook on them. Imagine trying to cook asparagus spears on the grill. Now imagine them all falling between the grates, if they don't fall just right. That's where the mat comes into play. Whole fish, shrimp, kebabs, vegetables, anything, even hash browns can be cooked on the mats. 

GE Lighting Giveaway

With the phase out of incandescent light bulbs, I've looked all over the place for replacement options. I stockpiled a bunch of 100 watt bulbs, jumped on the CFL bandwagon early on, and quickly abandoned it due to the mercury in the bulbs, recycling requirement, and the fact they don't illuminate fully immediately. Lately, I like LED bulbs, if you can find them on sale as they aren't cheap, and the eco-incandescent alternatives are looking more interesting, as a less expensive option.

I basically just want to see what I'm doing, but I like seeing the electricity bills go down, or at least the energy usage. The cost of energy has gone up at least here in the northeast. If we can reduce the need through smarter lighting alternatives, the bill doesn't go up that much. Somehow, we're in the 90th percentile of usage among neighbors so we're clearly dong something wrong, even after reinsulating the attic. (We use more than 90% of our neighbors.) As bulbs burn out, we're replacing them with those that cost less to use. Hopefully, that will bring our bills down some. I can't see just throwing out all the good bulbs and replacing them with energy saving ones.

What are you doing with the latest in lighting options?
