The Go Crib


Introducing the GoCrib. A lightweight, rugged, inflatable crib that fits in a backpack. As soon as I saw the video I wanted to buy this crib though my husband Scott was skeptical that an inflatable could be as sturdy as this one claimed to be. But it has indeed proven to be a must have travel product. Whether you are staying in a hotel for a night, going on an international beach vacation, hanging at a neighbor's pool party, watching a soccer game, or need extra sleep space during a playdate, the GoCrib is an easy solution. Watch this video to see it in action.

Last March we brought the GoCrib on our trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic while staying at the all-inclusive Ocean Blue and Sand Resort. As you can see, instead of having to take Morgan to our room for a nap, we were all able to relax on the beach instead.

I have been wanting to write a blog post on the GoCrib because we have been extremely happy with it, but after a year and a half of use our crib had developed a small leak. I could not in good conscience recommend this product until I found out how the company resolved product malfunctions. I must say that the Guava Family's customer service is phenomenal. I emailed the company and on the same day I received a personal response from the creator of the crib, Scott Crumrine, asking me to give him a call in the morning. I explained the leak to Scott and appreciated his honesty that although it rarely happens they have received a few reports (out of thousands sold each year) that a crib had a leak. Scott's solution to the problem was to ship us a new GoCrib and I could mail ours back in the new box with the return shipping included so his team could try to figure out where the leak was coming from. Customer service can't get any better than that. 

Forget the traditional pack and play, GNG highly recommends the lighter, more compact, and sleek looking GoCrib.

Moe's Famous Queso (Copycat Recipe)

After my dad retired from over 40 years of paper mill management, he did a short stint working at Moe's Southwest Grill before he and my mom moved down here to Maryland. After working a shift, he would often bring home Moe's famous queso and heat up their fresh tortilla chips in the microwave. I started craving Moe's queso, this unique white cheese dip packed an addicting heat that I had never had at any other Mexican restaurant. I started searching the web looking for the best copycat recipe and found the closest replica at  Seeded at the Table . I think it's right on the money!

I'm Loving Lidl's Sauces and Marinades

Last Saturday we packed up and headed to our borrowed beach house for the summer.  Before heading out, I stocked up on a bunch of Lidl's Sauces and Marinades for quick and easy meals at the beach. Lidl has a great variety to choose from, and look at the prices!!! So far we have tried Ya Mon Jerk Style Marinade, To-Kill-A-Lime Sauce, Nashville Style Barbecue Sauce, and Bailando Habanero Mango Sauce. All have been bold and flavorful. Scott especially enjoys the Nashville Style Spicy Barbecue Sauce, which definitely has a kick to it.  On our first night I served up this grilled steak marinated in the To-Kill-A-Lime Sauce, with a refreshing Watermelon Cucumber Salad, and fresh grilled corn. So good!  The next night I used the Nashville Style Spicy Barbecue Sauce for BBQ Chicken.  This spicy BBQ chicken went great with grilled fingerling potatoes and a chilled Blackberry Goat Cheese Salad. The then I turned up the heat even more with the Bailando Habanero Mango Sauce. .  It reminds me

Cottage Pie with tips from Chef Gordon Ramsay

Damn this dish is delicious! I was planning to serve the leftovers tonight but there aren't any, the fam devoured it. Next time I will double the batch!  I used Chef Gordon Ramsay's recipe for shepherd's pie, simply switching out ground lamb for ground beef. I would love to hear from my friends across the pond, and if they have a family favorite recipes or tips, but for me this was the best cottage pie I have ever had. Scroll down to the bottom for the recipe. Ramsey offered several tips to make the perfect cottage pie. First grating the carrot and onion versus chopping them. Seasoning the mash with fresh rosemary and thyme. He highlights in the video "It's all about the mince." Pouring in several "glugs" of red wine and adding splashes of Worcestershire sauce created a steamy sauce that filled the house with a "get in my belly" aroma.  The next tip was life changing. Use a potato press for the mashed potato topping. I had never used one be
