Creature Comforts: August 4, 2017

Happy Friday Friends!

Creature Comforts is a new series that will be coming out occasionally to share a few things that I am loving these days.  It could be products, articles or anything that I find that I think you might enjoy.

Cuisinart BFP-650 1 HP Blender/Food Processor, Silver
ONE/Cuisinart Blender/Food Processor
This was a gift that just keeps on giving.  I thought I would use this mostly for shakes and making crumbs for pies, but I have used this for so. many. things.  First, I used it to make baby food for all three of my kids.  Simpler (and bigger) than any other baby food processor.  Second, I use it weekly to make my Favorite Fresh Salsa.  (I told you I don’t buy store-bought anymore!)  Finally, I love the extra to-go cups for protein shakes or smoothies.  You can never go wrong with Cuisinart!


TWO/ Contigo Autoseal Travel Mug
Recently my favorite travel mug died.  And then our other one started to fall apart as well.  Because I use these multiple times a week, they get a lot of use.  I did not want a quick cheap travel mug.  Contigo gives a 100% leak-proof and spill-proof guarantee because you press to sip, release to seal.  Completely genuis and simple.

THREE/ The Turquoise Table collection
Did you know that this book is becoming a movement?  Author Kristin Schell invited people to start using #FrontYardPeople and reengage the people in their community.  Oh, and one more really fun thing?  You can buy some of her products at Tuesday Morning!  If you missed my review on this book, check it out here.  Be sure to also purchase your own copy!

FOUR/ NEW Halo Top Flavors!
Halo Top will be releasing 7 new flavors this month.  If you didn’t see my review of this low calorie, high-protein ice cream, you need to check it out here!  You know I am a dedicated researcher and certainly plan to do some thorough investigative reporting when this hits the shelves.

Eco Rolling Backpack

FIVE/ Garnet Hill backpacks
Being in the season of back to school shopping, I wanted to share a favorite around our house.  Our first Garnet Hill backpack purchase lasted through three full school years (as did the matching lunchbox).  That is worth the little extra cash if they last for three years!  The best part is that they come with a free matching lunchbox.  They have multiple sizes and styles and a wide variety of designs to make any kid happy.  They also have a snack bags and lunch containers to help keep you organized.

Hope you all enjoyed our first Creature Comforts post!  Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of these things.  I’d love to hear what you think!

  1. I received a purple Contigo travel mug for Christmas and I love it! Also, I tried my first Halo Top - Birthday Cake. Yum!
