The Habit Burger Grill for Mother’s Day!

Looking for a place to take Mom to lunch this Mother’s Day? The Habit Burger Grill is the place to go! I visited recently and I have a new favorite! I just love the Golden Fried Chicken Sandwich! The chicken is simply delicious and it is topped with a spicy red pepper sauce and served with fresh sliced tomato, lettuce and tangy pickles on a soft toasted bun. It is soooo good! I had to pair it up with my old time favorite: The Tempura Green Beans! Yum!

There’s a new Brew in Town- New! STEEPED COFFEE single-serve Coffee brews like tea, tastes like fresh brewed in a compostable bag! Perfect for Mom’s Day!

Step aside, coffee pods. Take a rest, instant coffee. There’s finally a single-serve option available in the world of high-end coffee, and it’s quickly becoming a game changer.

Santa Cruz-based startup Steeped, Inc., one of the most promising and innovative companies in the industry, has launched its revolutionary Steeped Coffee brewing method to serious coffee drinkers across the nation. Brewed similar to tea, Steeped Coffee’s nitro sealed Steeped Bags, along with their guilt-free packaging made using renewable and compostable materials, achieve the unthinkable: freshly ground specialty coffee in a single-serving. Best of all, it’s barista-approved.

Steeped Coffee launched when serial entrepreneur and coffee lover Josh Wilbur decided to combine the convenience of a single-serving brew method with the premium quality of ethically sourced coffee. Wilbur wanted to redeem the environmental dilemma created by wasteful coffee pods. Happy to do the math, Wilbur points out over 10 billion unrecyclable pods accumulate in landfills each year – enough to wrap around the earth more than 110 times if placed side-by-side. Moreover, each type of pod depends on expensive and often moldy brewing machines, which are also unrecyclable.

I have to say I received samples and am quite impressed! The taste is great and I love how fresh this coffee tastes! It’s great for on-the-go and easy to take to work with you!

The Steeped Coffee brand is available in five roasts: light, medium, dark, French roast, and a single-origin Swiss Water Process decaf. You can get your hands on Steeped Coffee packs, various luxury hotels, top company break rooms, by asking your local retail stores to start carrying Steeped, or through any of the partnered specialty roasters now offering their own Steeped Packs with their coffee.

With so many coffee gadgets, machines, and accessories flooding the market these days, this simple unplugged Steeped Coffee brewing method might be just what you’re looking for to take your moment, while at home, at work, or on-the-go.

Atem Car–the purifier to keep your family breathing safe and clean! A great gift suggestion for Moms this Mother’s Day!

The Atem Car air purifier from IQAir is a real must-buy! I had the opportunity to try it out and it works great! Powerful air cleaning technology cleans your interior air up to 20 times per hour.
What sets the Atem Car apart is gas-phase filtration that absorbs odors, gases, chemicals and even harmful allergens. What is left is purified air. Considering how much time our “precious cargo” spends in the car, a car air purifier is very much needed.

We spend a lot of time traveling in our cars and I think breathing fresh air is pretty important, don’t you?
