    Red Envelope Review

    Oh my heart, I love Red Envelope. Red Envelope is a popular website that offers unique and personalized gifts, for anyone and everyone. They have great gifts for friends, family, new babies, and of course, loved ones. I spent hours browsing their site and fell in love with so many of their gift options. One of my favorite things is the ability to really personalize gifts making them great keepsake gifts.

    Red Envelope offers an amazing selection of items to choose from and they have made their website incredibly easy to navigate and find the perfect gift. You can select the gift recipient and see exactly what items are suggested for the perfect gift. You can also choose to shop by category or price to make it even easier.

    I was thrilled when I was able to review an item for the special guy in my life. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I shopped the Valentine’s Gifts for Him section and was pleasantly surprised with all of the fantastic gift ideas. I finally decided on a unique gift: Whiskey Lover’s Set 

    These are perfect for the whiskey lovers because it allows someone who wants to chill their spirits without diluting them with ice cubes. The set comes with six soapstone cubes and two sipping glasses. You simply freeze the stones and add them to your drink, wait a few minutes for them to chill your spirit and enjoy. The quality of the stones and the glasses is impressive. This is a fun and unique gift for any of the men in your life.

    Ordering was a breeze and I love how their website always has some great coupon codes to offer their shoppers. My item was shipped within a few days and I was notified by email every step of the way, including confirmation once my order was delivered.

    If you are looking for Valentine’s Day Gifts or Gifts for any occasion, be sure to check out Red Envelope, they’re sure to have the perfect gift for you.

    Zucchini Pizza – Easy & Healthy Alternative

    Zucchini Pizza is great healthy alternative to Pizza. Skip the bread, sub some veggies, still delicious! I don’t have a lot of recipes but this is one I do often. My kids eat it…so I make it…A LOT.


    • Zucchini
    • Marinara Sauce
    • Parmesan Cheese
    • Jack Cheese
    • Salt & Pepper

    Slice the Zucchini long ways. Heat up a pan with a bit of oil. Saute the Zucchini to until it’s almost cooked through. Go light on the oil, I always use a Paper Towel to get any excess oil off the Zucchini.

    After you pat off the excess oil. Put your Zucchini on tin foil or a cookie sheet and build your pizza. I add a little Salt and Pepper on the zucchini, spoon on some Marinara, Sprinkle Jack Cheese and Parmesan on top.

    Broil on Low for 5 Minutes and you’re ready to eat your delicious and healthy Zucchini Pizza!
