Wordless Wednesday with Linky - Always Be Watchful - September 17, 2014

Everyone who lives in snake country knows that you always have to be watchful.  My son just got home late from work, and when my husband went out to greet him, he found a Mojave Green Rattlesnake.

With the flash on the camera, you really can't see the greenish tint of the snake, but it's there.  This is one of our more prevalent snakes around the house.  The Mojave Green's venom is a neurotoxin and very deadly.

We do have a sidewinder rattlesnake around, but he doesn't come near the house - yet.  They have such interesting tracks that they leave.

The 12" Ozeri GREEN Earth Frying Pan Featuring Greblon Textured Ceramic Non-Stick Coating from Germany - Review

The Ozeri Green Earth Pan featured in this post was provided free of cost to me for the sole purpose of a review. This post has not been monetarily compensated. Please note that, as always, the opinions reflected in this post are my own.

Our meals have never been better recently.  Almost every day someone is frying something.  Back in July, I received an Ozeri 10" Green Earth Pan.  I can't say enough good things about that pan.  It still just like new.  A 10" is a good size, but, being a large family, we need a larger pan for some dinners and perhaps some desserts.

We are all so happy to have received from Ozeri another one of their great Green Earth Pans in a 12" diameter.  When we fry chicken, hamburgers, stir fry, it just gives us that extra room that we need.  Instead of putting two 10" pans on the stove, now only one goes on.  (That saves energy!)

Why is the Green Earth Pan from Ozeri so great?  It's the unique ceramic non-stick interior - GREBLON!  This is an ultra-safe ceramic coating from Germany which is 100% PTFE and PFOA free.  The honeycombed textured coating keeps food from food bonding to the surface of the pan. The elevations of the textured honeycombed cooking surface also create air pockets which distribute heat underneath food to enhance cooking performance.

Conventional cookware and other ceramic cookware brands achieve their non-stick performance through a coating of PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene), a synthetic substance that has waxy properties. At very high temperatures, PTFE begins to decompose and release fumes which are documented to be lethal to birds and small pets, and which can be harmful to humans. In addition, traditional pans incorporating PTFE are often manufactured with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which the EPA has classified as a 'persistent pollutant of the environment'. With the Green Earth Pan's GREBLON ceramic, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because each pan utilizes a 100% ceramic coating inspired by nature - not a laboratory.

In addition to being completely free of PTFE and PFOA, each pan is also far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan allows you to saute, fry, bake, boil and braise with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and cleaning is a breeze. Each Green Earth Pan is made of the highest quality die-cast aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without hot spots. Each pan boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat resistant silicone coated handle.

One of the great additions to buying an Ozeri Green Earth Pan is that it comes with an Ozeri pan protector.  The pan protector is designed to protect the surface and coating of your Ozeri frying pan against scratches during storage.

These felt pads work wonders keeping the pans from touching each other.  It keeps the Greblon ceramic interior scratchless while you have it in your cupboard.  Below you see all three of our frying pans together.

We can stack them all thus saving space in the cupboard and never worry about scratching the surfaces.

Here are my tips for keeping the Ozeri GREEN Earth Pan in top condition.  While the coating is scratch-resistant, it's best not to tempt fate.  I recommend always cooking with a heat resistant spatula or wooden utensil.  Once the pan cools, clean in hot soapy water, rinse, and dry immediately.  Then just tuck it in the cupboard - remember to use the Ozeri pan protector.

The holidays with all of the wonderful cooking are almost here.  A 12" Ozeri GREEN Earth Pan would really be a big help in the kitchen!  BUY IT TODAY at AMAZON!  The price is right.  For this top quality 12" pan you might expect to pay a lot, yet it's only $34.97!

Ozeri products are found the world over, from majestic European estates, luxurious desert spa resorts, tropical private resorts, to our homes.  They offer the finest kitchen, bath, entertainment, and personal amenities.

Ageless Derma Natural Camoufleur Concealer With Vitamin A, E, & Apple Extracts - Review

Disclosure: Ageless Derma sent me the Camoufleur Concealer at no charge in exchange for my honest review.  No other compensation was received.

I just became a grandmother a few months ago.  You would think that my days of teenage blemishes would be behind me - NOT!  I still get some of those horrible pimples every month.  Just my foundation alone is not enough to hide these blemishes and a few other signs of aging that I have.

In order to combat these little flaws, Ageless Derma kindly sent me their Camoufleur Concealer to try out.  I can tell you, this concealer works perfectly.  What blemishes I get every month now are invisible.  The Camoufleur Concealer covers them perfectly.

This little wonder also hides the signs of aging.  Ever since my illness leading up to my hysterectomy, I have had these dark circles under my eyes.  Just a little dab of the Ageless Derma Camoufleur Concealer gently rubbed around, and those black circles just disappear.  I look years younger.

I use the Ageless Derma Camoufleur Concealer in conjunction with the Ageless Derma Pressed Mineral Foundation (see my review).  Where you put the Camoufleur Concealer under the pressed mineral foundation, it stays there.  The Camoufleur Concealer is very long lasting.  It will last all day!  I even got caught out in the rain the other week, and it still was there.  I just love this!

Ageless Derma line of mineral makeup includes the dynamic Camoufleur Concealer that is ideal for covering up imperfections of the skin such as scars or brown spots or port wine stains that distract from the skin’s beauty. This versatile mineral make up concealer provides a natural look that is long lasting and will also cover those dark circles beneath the eyes, so it is an anti aging makeup that will conceal those visible signs of aging.

The Agelss Derma Camofleur Concealer is
  • 100 % Pure Minerals
  • Great For Sensitive Skin
  • Broad Spectrum Sun Protection
  • Never tested on Animals
  • Potent Antioxidants to prevent wrinkles
  • Made in USA
The key ingredients are Apple Extract, Horseradish, Phospholipids, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, and Butylene Glycol.

I really do love the Ageless Derma Camoufleur Concealer.  It really has made quite a big difference in my skin's appearance.  BUY Camoufleur Concealer directly at Ageless Derma. 

The Ageless Derma product line was recently featured at the Emmy Awards held in Los Angeles.  There are many celebrities that love Ageless Derma.  See images of many celebrities proudly wearing their make up at Ageless Derma on Facebook
