cuisipro cookware set
Canada’s leading manufacturer of cookware products, Cuisipro, offers innovative cooking tools for everyday kitchen must-haves shaped by professional chefs for chefs of all skillsets. There are over 200 products to ease any kitchen task, from stock cookware to specialty bakeware to everything in between.

We have been using the Cuisipro Soft-Touch Cookware Set, which is designed for home cooking. The aluminum cooking pans and pots are designed to deliver quick, even heat distribution. We like that the pans are lightweight and easy to use. The nonstick cooking surfaces ensures effortless food release and cleanup. The domed glass lids seals in heat and moisture while allowing us to see the cooking progress. The ergonomic soft-touch handles are comfortable to hold, and it doesn't get hot while the pans are on the stove. 
cuisipro dish rack
Cuisipro also has a space-saving dish rack that is sleek and compact. This set comes with three pieces, which includes the mat, rack and a utensil holder. The neoprene side of the dish mat can also be used as a trivet to serve hot food, heat tolerance 500°F. Check out the detailed post about this product.
hamilton beach juicer, grinder, mixer
Hamilton Beach Professional Juicer Mixer Grinder is a must-have appliance that will be useful in every kitchen. It grinds a variety of ingredients depending on how we want; coarse, smooth or fine within seconds. The powerful 2.2 HP commercial grade motor (1400 watts) resists overheating and handles the toughest ingredients. 

The machine comes with a tamper, scraper, chef developed recipe book, instruction manual, 3 stainless steel jars, each one fixed with a universal blade, and leakproof, shatterproof Titan lids. The high-performance blender allows us to make smoothies, juices, nut butters, soups, sauces, and more. I have been using it everyday to mix, mince, grind, and to make juice. Read the detailed review on how useful this appliance is for everyday use.

good burdens book
Good Burdens: How to Live Joyfully in the Digital Age by Christina Crook is a compact and actionable handbook for those hoping to transform their digital stress into digital mindfulness. It is filled with tips and insights to help readers achieve their own digital well-being by being more intentional and aware of their addiction to distraction. Mindfulness and being present is not only important for our well-being, but it is a gift we can offer others. 
good burdens book
Like Christina, I truly believe that caring about our small corner of the world matters. Having reminders to channel our energy towards “good burdens” such as caring relationships, community, and creative projects that bring joy is important, and this book does that - gives us the reminder we all need.

bug lab ontario science centre
The spectacular new interactive Bug Lab exhibit at Ontario Science Centre will be a fun experience for both children and adults. You will get to see the world from the bug's perspective! It is amazing to see how mighty even the smallest bugs are, and how different bugs have adapted to cope with everything that surrounds their world. We got to see live bugs up close, learn about them, and even got to touch it. 

Bug Lab is a travelling exhibition created by New Zealand's national museum, Te Papa. It was built in collaboration with Weta Workshop, the award-winning concept design and special effects studio behind The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies, among other impressive productions. The different chambers in the exhibit are built to emulate the natural habitat of each bug on a massive scale.

Inside each cute soft bunny pouch, little ones will be able to find an adorable collectible baby doll in an animal swaddle. Each set of dolls has a cute theme to inspire little ones' imaginations.

rummikub
One of our favourite classic board games to play is the Rummikub. We can bring more people together with the 6-player special edition of this original game. Rummikub is a good game to play with children over 8 years old. It helps develop a variety of skills including sequencing, pattern recognition and planning. It is a fast moving, easy to learn game with different results every time it's played. We like how this game combines luck and strategy, and changes quickly so every player has a chance to win until the very end. This 6-player game has 160 tiles that come in a bag, instructions, and 6 racks. This holiday season as you get together add Rummikub to the list of activities you do with your family and friends!
