Entertainment and Food, Latest, Reviews and Giveaways By Tags: , , , , 1 Comment

I love working with Cave Tools on product reviews because their grilling tools and accessories are great – they’re affordable and built to last and let’s be honest… I’m not the only person who forgets to bring their tools in when they’re done grilling.

Nikki is another one of my favorite Twitter success “stories”. She and I share a love of tech, social and food!

It’s hard when you’re a family with two working spouses to not just put dinner on the table before the stroke of midnight, but also a dinner that isn’t created by punching buttons on a microwave or hearing the words “pull up to the 2nd window”.
