Zevo and house

Don't BUG OUT!
ZEVO helps to keep the Bugs Away

We consider the south a very special place to live. We treasure its friendly people, polite drivers, caring neighbors, and abundance of flowers, trees, and bushes. The down-size is a much longer insect season. Bugs are also comfortable in our moderate climate and hospitable environment. In the past decades, many southerners used DDT and other poisonous sprays to prevent insects around the perimeter of their homes, and from entering homes and especially their kitchens. In many cases, the exterminator became a part of the family. However, now we are much more aware of the toxins in insect sprays and those found in fact in house cleaning solutions as well. We try to avoid both.

Enter ZEVO. We read about this new insect eradication product, and requested testing samples from the manufacturer. As most of our readers know, we do not write about products we have not used and liked.The results: we have not had a live insect- not an ant, a spider or a centipede in our home since we started using Zevo. Prior to our recent 3 week trip (to Israel) we sprayed all of the thresholds of our doors and windows with the Zevo spray. We chose the ant, roach, fly  spray. When we returned home, there was not a live insect anywhere; As the weather warms, we plan to use the Zevo insect traps, and the outdoor flying, stinging insect spray, and will report back.

Why do we like Zevo? Simple... It works! • Safe for use around pets and people     
• Ingredients inspired by plant science
• Eradicates a broad range of crawling, flying, and stinging insects.
• DOES NOT contain known harmful ingredients to humans or pets
• Money Back Guarantee

Choose from Instant Action Sprays to spray directly on a live insect.                                                                           
Use a Zevo trap to continuously attract and capture flying insects.
Zevo Flying Insect Traps use dual-action bio-attractants to attract flying insects and capture them into a powerful adhesive backing that you never have to touch!

Does anyone really need a tool for making vegetable spirals and ribbons? How would we use it? We quickly discovered that a spiralizer is a gadget that can nudge our family into eating more veggies. Equipped with four blades, the Paderno Spiralizer transforms vegetables into thin strands as well as spiral cuts, shoestrings and ribbon "noodles." Another plus is an accessory for creating fancy accordion cuts. This spiral vegetable slicer is great for slicing raw vegetables and fruits for salads, pastas, side dishes, stir-fry's and garnishes, and even shoestring fries.

Spiralized veggies can then be steamed, sautéed, roasted or eaten raw. The Paderno 4 blade Spiralizer is simple to use -  prongs hold vegetables tightly against a cutting blade-while a crank is turned to produce long ribbons or skinny, curled, and twisted pasta-like spirals. We particularly liked the way it worked on beets and zucchini. We even used it to add strands of cucumbers and carrots to our sushi salad.

This is the updated version of the original Paderno Spiralizer Slicer, which was actually created about 20 years ago. By the way, this spiral slicer was selected as best in its category by Cook's Illustrated.

Paderno World-Cuisine 4 Blade Spiralizer

  • The compact base minimizes counter and storage space, and houses extra easy to remove blades.
  • Its clear cover doubles as a tray to catch ribbons as they are cut
  • Suction feet offer stability during use
  • Disassembles easily for storage
  • Top shelf dishwasher safe
  • Four stainless blades include: Spiral, Angel Hair Shredder, Fine Shredder, Coarse Shredder
  • Includes four stainless-steel blades: angel-hair shredder, chipper, fine shredder and straight blade, plus a pin accessory to use with the blades to create accordion cuts.
  • Use with firm fruits and vegetables, including apples, potatoes, carrots, cucumber, zucchini, beets and more.

The Crack'em


Who knew that we needed one of these? Where do YOU crack your eggs? On the dish, the bowl, the counter, the sink?  How hard do you “rap”? Yes, they all work - but we seem to always end up with an eggy mess… usually some shell, and often some egg drips.

Enter, the Crack’em! It is a dishwasher safe tray with a single slightly raised edge that provides the perfect surface to crack an egg, catching all the drips including the egg white. The cracked egg can easily be poured into a bowl or pan.

Because of kashrut, and the prohibition of using eggs with blood spots, cracking one egg at a time is the rule in kosher homes. The surface of the Crack’em (ours is white) allows full inspection of each egg.
