Mary’s Special Ingredients Box Review

Recently I got to review a box of MARY’s secret ingredients (MSI).  MSI is a limited edition culinary surprise box containing unique gourmet, artisanal ingredients along with small kitchen products.  Each season, a box of surprise goodies will be delivered to your door to enjoy.  If you don’t know what to do with the products, don’t worry as each ingredient in the box will be used in a recipe on the LOVE blog.  

I love box ideas because 1) I really like surprise gifts in the mail.  2) I love to discover new snacks and cooking items.  Getting a new sauce or herb will make me think outside of my regular kitchen box and be creative.      Also I love that 10% of profits get donated to Feed The Children Organization.

If you’re interested sign up at Mary’s Secret Ingredients.  For all the gourmet products I got it’s well worth the $25.95 price tag as I know how much this stuff costs in the store!  Sign up for the Summer box, Autumn box or Winter box or go crazy and treat yourself to all 3.  This makes a awesome gift as well, so think of upcoming foodie friends birthdays or anniversaries!  They will love you for it!  My birthday is October 24, so you know. 😉

Let’s look at the box!  With my 2 helpers.. Xanadu and Goblin!

MARY’s secret ingredients
First up, it’s wrapped beautifully and very organized!

I was already oohing and ahhing.  How long did these wafer cookies last in my kitchen? Less than 24 hours.  The next day I went for a wafer cookie and they were GONE.  The packaging was GONE.  I texted Matthew “WHERE ARE THE WAFERS!!!!!”.  He texted me that he ate the rest during the middle of the night.  I was heart broken.  Seriously.

These applewood smoked meats were also delicious.  They lasted 2 days I think.  I would totally buy these if I saw them in the store!

A big jar of fresh oregano that smells as good as you think it does!

Probably the highlight of the box for me (ok besides the wafer cookies) is this peppermint tea.  Peppermint tea is one of my favs to enjoy and calm down with.

MARY’s secret ingredients _6
Even better is that it’s made right here in Brooklyn by Calmer Sutra Teas!

MARY’s secret ingredients _7
These were little pieces of cheeses that had a hint of spice to it.  

MARY’s secret ingredients _8
This was a delicious brine that has me bursting with ideas! Goblin is pretty excited too.

So go ahead and put some LOVE in your cooking!

I hope you go ahead and try a box out, I really think you will love it!

Get Your Organizing On Track!

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Rubbermaid, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #FastTrack http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH

Does anyone else fear when walking into your garage or opening a closet that basketballs, screw drivers or boxes will fall on you?  I’m glad you can relate!  We have a storage closet at the end of our loft which houses some of Matthew’s tools (boy loves his power tools), sporting equipment, boxes that we can’t part with just yet, garden supplies, photo equipment and props for future/past projects.  It’s not strange to walk into this closet and see tools alongside long beautiful wigs.  Well ok, it’s not strange for me, but the unorganized nature of this drives me crazy.
Target Rubbermaid FastTrack_1

When I was browsing the aisles of my beloved Target, I came across The Rubbermaid FastTrack 5 Piece Kit that looked like it would be perfect to put high on our walls for more organized storage. I was hoping this could hold some electrical cords that always get tangled, paint cans, tools, etc.  So I threw it in my cart and off I went to browse around Target because I never leave Target with buying just 1 item.  Goodness, I love that place.

What I loved about this Kit was right out of the box it was so easy to set up. Matthew literally snapped it together in a minute and by the time I grabbed my camera to take pictures (my way of helping) he already had it screwed into the wall.  The boy moves quick when it comes to setting things up!Target Rubbermaid FastTrack_3

And just like that things were looking better in our storage space!

And a before and after:

I really love these kits as you can build your ideal storage system for anything and everything.   This is perfect for garages, garden sheds or closets.   I’m already thinking about building a entire system of these kits for our garden storage on the roof.  Just the idea of getting all of our shovels organized makes me excited!

From May 18, 2014 to May 24, 2014 the FastTrack kit is on sale for $28.99 (regular price $33.99) so I would grab my bag and run to Target as soon as possible!   Are you doing any Spring/Summer time cleaning?
