Theatrical Thursday - Coming Home for Christmas - Review & Giveaway - ends 11/10

I received the following DVD in exchange for my honest opinions. 

Here is a sweet Christmas movie for you all: Coming Home for Christmas.  This movie premiered on DVD on October 29, 2013, and is available now!  It stars Carly McKillip (Hot Rod), Britt McKillip (Dead Like Me), Amy Jo Johnson (Flashpoint, Felicity), and George Canyon (Christmas Miracle, Dawn Rider, Man of Steel).

Sisters Kate and Melanie haven’t spoken to each other in years since a hurtful scene at Melanie’s wedding. Their parents, Wendy and Al, have let the pain of their daughters’ absence drive a wedge between them, and their tensions have led to a separation. Kate is determined to reunite the entire family for Christmas, and has the perfect spot… their old family home. The only problem is there’s someone else living there now.

We had a great time watching this movie.  It is a TV type movie that came out on DVD.  It's the story of how one woman's family is just falling apart, and she wants to get everyone back together again.  She had a realization that family means so much to her.  She wants so much to have a family Christmas back in the same home that her family had when she was a child - to relive and revive the sweet Christmas feelings that held them together so long ago.  When she does visit the house, she meets the current occupant of the home - a dashing and handsome young man named Mike (Ben Hollingsworth) who she just can't help but fall for.

I would rate this movie 4 our of 5 stars.  I do recommend that you watch this movie, and believe that if you love family as much as my family and I do, you will enjoy this picture.  I see nothing wrong with the message that "Family Means Everything" because it does!  It is wonderful to see someone really selflessly care about their family so much and want to keep it together.  Cute little pieces of fun and humor, happy ending, completely bad language free, a quality family movie with good ol' fashioned Christmas songs intertwined.  This is a wholesome family movie!

Coming Home for Christmas is available right now.  Included with the DVD is a Bonus copy of Coming Home for Christmas from the VUDU Movie Service.  This movie can be purchased at Amazon for only $9.96,  and it qualifies for FREE Super Saver Shipping.  Yet, right now, it is temporarily out of stock, but you're lucky - two people can get a copy from me!


Two copies of Coming Home for Christmas has been set aside for two readers of my blog!  This giveaway ends on November 16, 2013, and is open to US residents only.

Marvelous Music Monday - Trick or Treat for Halloween! - October 28, 2013

Time for another great blast into the past.  I just couldn't help myself for today.  Just saw this one over the weekend, and it has stuck with me.  Yes, it's a whole cartoon, and the song in this is so much fun!  Halloween is missing innocent fun -- too many people act like fools now for Halloween.

Donald Duck decides to give his nephews too many tricks and no treats for Halloween which gets Witch Hazel a bit irate at him.  Hazel makes sure Donald comes up with the treats!

From 1952

You better not be stingy or
Your Nightmares will come True!

Stainless Steel 10" Earth Pan by Ozeri - Review

I received the following product in exchange for my honest opinion.

If you don't already know, my husband is the cook of the family.  I am not ashamed to admit it.  I was never taught to cook when I was growing up.  I am happy I married a cook, and we all get fed quite well.  One of the things that a good cook desires is a non-stick frying pan of excellent quality to cook in.  We have found that in the Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri.

We were sent the 10" Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri around a month ago, and have been using it on a daily basis.  Yes, I have been using it along with my husband.  After 30 years of marriage, he has taught me a trick or two about cooking.  This pan really lives up to the Ozeri name as the quality of this pan is incredible.

This 10" Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri features ETERNA, the world's longest lasting 100% PFOA-free non-stick coating developed in the USA.   This is a safe and natural non-stick coating developed in the USA.   This pan does not use the harmful chemical PFOA in its non-stick coating.  PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid) is used in conventional pans to get pans to be non-stick.  The EPA has classified  PFOA as a 'persistent pollutant of the environment'.

Did you know that according to the EPA, once PFOA is ingested, it is capable of remaining in people for a very long time?  PFOA has been show to cause developmental and other adverse effects in laboratory animals.  You have nothing to worry about with the Earth Pan by Ozeri.  It's ETERNA coating, even under high temperatures, no harmful substances are ever released into the environment.  That means the Earth Pan is completely safe for you, too.

Made of the highest quality 18/8 stainless steel with TriPly construction and a polished mirror exterior, the Earth Pan by Ozeri is a beauty that will add elegance to your kitchen.  This pan delivers the ultimate in heat conductivity for even cooking and browning without hot spots. 

The handle on the pan is very comfortable to work with.  The stainless steel handle is heat resistant, and is reinforced to the pan via 3 rivets, and a magnetized base for use with rapid heat transfer induction stoves.

As always with Ozeri, your satisfaction is completely guaranteed. The ETERNA coating made by Whitford USA., and the pan is assembled in China.

Every morning, eggs are cooked in this pan.  At night, it is often used to fry meat or potatoes.  Always with complete non-stick action from day we got it to today's morning cheese omelet.  The sides of the pan are constructed with the right angle that makes flipping eggs or other foods so easy with no or hardly any mess.

There are always some precautions that you must follow when using a non-stick pan, and this pan is no different.  Always make sure to use plastic utensils or heat-resistant spatulas when you cook, because metal utensil can scratch the coating.  To clean, wait until the pan has cooled, and then wash in soapy water, rinse, and dry with a soft cotton cloth to help preserve the beautiful mirror finish.  To store this pan: never stack any other pans inside of it, as they could damage the non-stick interior.  I put the pan in a special cabinet on top of other items. 

My husband and I highly recommend the 10" Stainless Steel Earth Pan by Ozeri.  If you cook, you will want this pan!
