Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
If you're always on the go like I am, then you're going to want to grab a few of these Beverage Holders. The leader of plastic home products is once again ready to save your day! Rubbermaid Beverage has launched six new products this month – water bottles perfect for adults, teens, and children, and for the first time ever, a thermal travel mug!
Rubbermaid’s latest beverage products benefit your everyday life in countless ways. From family road trips, errands, on-the-go, last minute trips, kids outdoor activities, and your indoor and outdoor activities, it’s the one thing you need to carry besides your cellphone.
Available in a variety of sizes, colors, and designs, everyone in the family will find the leak-proof beverage holder that is perfect for them.

I've been trying out a Chug Bottle and Travel Mug for the past week and I'm very impressed with both of them. They are sleek-looking, easy to use, fit in my car cupholders, and neither one of them leaked. I love the carry handle on the lid of the 24oz water bottle.
The Rubbermaid travel mug features a flip-top lid, whereas the water bottle features a lid that unscrews for drinking. Both work great and I can definitely give my recommendation for these new leak-proof beverage holders from Rubbermaid!

Playgro 3-in-1 Safari Activity Gym #review

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
The Playgro™ 3-in-1 Safari Activity Gym is filled with lots of activities and experiences for your baby. This ingenious flexible playgym is designed to engage baby with multiple features, designed to entertain, engage, and delight all of baby’s senses, in a whole new way.
The Playgro 3-in-1 Safari Activity Gym is a playmat. a tummy time mat, a playgym, a crib mobile, and a crib side toy, all in one. Parents can detach the flexible arch to arch over the top of a crib or attach longways across one crib rail.
It's bright and colorful, featuring delightful safari animals, with lots of textures to touch, tabs to pull on, rattles to shake, and even a shiny wing to crinkle with a peek-a-boo animal underneath. The three hanging rattles are attached by a ring that allows each one to be detached if desired.
The 3-in-1 Safari Activity Gym features a soft padding with a thicker padding at one end, making it the perfect place to lay your baby. It's the perfect spot for tummy time too. Your baby will have so much to look at, play with, and explore. The arch is flexible but sturdy.
The Playgro 3-n-1 Safari Activity Gym is amazingly portable. It folds in half, with the arch in place, and features velcro tabs that holds it all together. There is even a handle for easy carrying, no matter where you travel. It is also very lightweight overall.
The safari animals have sweet faces with big eyes and smiling mouths. This activity gym helps develop your baby's large motor skills by encouraging reaching up and reaching out, fine motor skills by baby grabbing and holding, and hand-eye coordination by batting at the hanging rattles to create sound. The textured rattle rings are great for teethers too.
Baby's sense of hearing will be refined by hearing the rattles inside the hanging toys and the crinkly sounds by moving the toucan's wing. Baby's sense of sight will be delighted by the parade of colors and different materials. I love the sweet touch of the tabs along the giraffe's neckline too. This is something you could easily take along to grandma's house or the babysitter's house.
I am incredibly impressed with the Playgro 3-in-1 Safari Activity Gym and all the benefits to baby's use of it. I love that it's easily portable and tucks away flat. It's very easy to convert the arch from the playmat to a crib, and would probably easily attach to playpens and strollers too. Even the rattles are a stand-alone toy.

Montel Williams 6-Quart Pressure Cooker #review

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
It seems like everyone wants a pressure cooker these days and I recently received the 6-quart Pressure Cooker from Living Well Products. Montel Williams recently launched a new line of products that includes fitness, nutraceuticals, and housewares, with a kitchen line of small appliances consisting of a personal blender, a pressure cooker, a 3-in-1 multi cooker, a microwave cooker, a frozen dessert maker, and a smokeless portable grill.
This pressure cooker from Montel Williams features 12 preset cooking options: Soup/Stew, Canning, Slow Cooker, Beans/Lentils, Fish/Vegetables, Steam, Chicken, Meat and Keep Warm. It has a stainless steel house with a non-stick, double coated, aluminum 6 quart cooking pot. The pressure cooker also has a unique displacement pressure release system, plus a programmable and easy-to-read LED display. It even includes a spatula, wide spoon, measuring cup, steam tray, and a recipe book with Montel’s Secret Family recipes.
The first time using a pressure cooker can be a bit nerve-wracking for some, especially when you hear the pressure building up, but as long as you are following directions, pressure cooking is safe and provides delicious meals in a fraction of the time. When I started looking through recipes, I was really excited to see one for making hard-boiled eggs.
We love hard-boiled eggs and we eat a lot of them, but they are a pain to make properly. I used the recipe from the Montel Williams website, on the pressure cooker page, using the download button. I did find a small error in the recipe, which I resolved and corrected (see below), to make the most perfect hard-boiled eggs I've ever eaten.
Hard Boiled Eggs Recipe
12 Eggs
1 ½ cups of Water
Large bowl filled halfway with ice and water (ice bath)

1. Place the Inner Pot inside the Pressure Cooker.
2. Place Steam Rack inside Inner Pot.
3. Place water and eggs inside the Inner Pot.
4. Place lid on Pressure Cooker and lock into place.
5. Push RICE/RISOTTO button and set timer for 6 minutes. *Error: the rice/risotto button will cook for ten minutes. The adjust button only allows you to go up in minutes, not down. Instead, push the BEANS/LENTILS button (which is 5 minutes) the add 1 minute using the time adjustment button.
6. When the timer reaches 0, the unit will beep. Release the steam to depressurize and carefully remove lid.
7. Carefully remove the eggs (the included wide spoon was perfect for this step) and place into ice bath.
8. Allow the eggs to cool in the ice bath for a few minutes, then peel.

The eggs come out absolutely perfect, not overcooked or undercooked, plus they peel much more easily than any hard-boiled eggs we've ever made on our stovetop. Delicious!
We also made a fabulous dinner of barbecue chicken breast and broccoli. The chicken was first sauteed in the pressure cooker inner pot with spices a tad of butter and olive oil, then added barbecue sauce and a bit of water before pressure cooking. The steam tray was placed above the chicken, and frozen broccoli added, before we started the pressure cooker. Our dinner was delicious and cooked to perfection. The chicken was deliciously moist and the broccoli had just a hint of barbecue flavoring in it.
I am extremely impressed with Montel Williams 6-quart Pressure Cooker and am excited to learn to use it more. It makes preparing food faster and easier, plus clean-up was a breeze. Learn more about Montel Williams new line of products at www.livingwellwithmontel.com.
