Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe – Close To…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe – Close To…

It is fall time and time to break out the canned pumpkin and create these delicious cookies. I have made these most delicious and moist pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I was a little nervous about my kids not wanting to eat them, but they actually really enjoyed them, as did my husband who loves his chocolate chip cookies. Since pumpkin is so good for you, I decided to add some oatmeal as well to make this a semi-healthy cookie recipe. Hey use dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet and you have really pushed the healthy cookie bar up!! Doesn’t this color of orange just scream fall time? I used Ghiradelli Brand Semi-sweet chips. I think they taste closer to a dark chocolate. Grab yourself a glass of milk, you will want one especially if you…Read More

Frank’s Backyard 12″ Three-Sided Stainless Steel Grill Brush

Frank’s Backyard 12″ Three-Sided Stainless Steel Grill Brush

IMG_20141011_152109Tough Brush!

This is a really strong and tough brush.  It easily scrapped off baked on grease and food from months ago.  We don’t clean the grill every time we grill because a lot of the times we cook in pans so the food does not touch the grate unless it spills over so after a while there is a lot of baked on grease and grime.  We dread cleaning it.  I tried this brush and it is not such a chore anymore!  The gunk came off quickly and easily.  It evens takes off the rust.  I will be using this every time now and will keep it clean so we can cook directly on the grate whenever we want to.


From the manufacturer:

  • Works better than a flat brush, covering a wider area while the corners get into those tighter areas. A cleaner grill means great tasting burgers and dogs!
  • The perfect size brush before it gets too cumbersome. Sturdy, strong and effective so you can put all the elbow grease you want into it, you just won’t have to with this brush.
  • The leather strap makes it easy to store between uses, this cool tool gets the job done and keeps your hands clean.
  • A great gift for any He-Man. This super easy to use brush works best right after you’ve finished cooking while the grill is still hot with a bowl of water close by to dip in for an effortlessly clean grill.

Tastes Great and Good For So Many Things!

This stuff tastes great.  I hate taking pills so this is perfect for me.  I sometimes take it straight and other times mix it with other things.  I have been adding it to fruit juices and smoothies.  Even if it did not have the health benefits, I would still take it if it was cheap enough just for the flavor.  I make my own version of Cherry Coke by adding some to Diet Coke.  It is also good in orange juice and plain yogurt.  The gout in my big toes has not flared up since taking this.  They used to be very painful.  I also have seen improvement in my sleep and seem to feel better during the day.  I love that it is organic and made in the USA.

I make smoothies with ice, strawberries, bananas and whatever other fruit we have on hand at the time.   I add a little of this tart cherry juice to it if we are drinking them right before bed.  It helps me go to sleep faster and sleep more peacefully.
