What exactly is Cook’n?
Review posted in behalf of Tots and Me.
I have joined together with Tots and Me and some other great bloggers to bring you this giveaway. The following review is written by Tots and Me. I saw this intriguing product floating around the blog-o-sphere and wasn’t sure how exactly it worked. At first it didn’t make sense to me. But I wanted to learn more, and am I glad I did. Let me introduce you to FunBites. I was given the opportunity to try out the Cube It! Fun Bites Cutter and was able to see for myself how it worked.
Have you ever cut out cookies or sandwiches or other food items into little pieces and had it take forever to cut out. Or have you ever used small cookie cutters and had the food stick in the cutter. With the FunBites cutter you can cut little pieces quickly, safely and uniformly. And then you can easily remove them by pushing the popper top in.
Cheeses, meats, vegetables, fruits and a sandwich. Not only is this easy to use, it is actually quite fun!
Push the cutter into the food and rock it back and forth a few times.
Insert the popper top and push it through. (No, this wasn’t the sandwich, I forgot to take a picture of the sandwich being popped out.)
And some melon for dessert.
Oh, and mommy did enjoy a few of the bite-sized pieces. There is something yummy about eating little bite-sized pieces. And I guess if it amuses this mommy so much it has got to be fun for children, even picky children.
Do you like to create fun lunches for your child? Do you want to cut fun finger foods for a party? Do you have a picky eater? Then you have got to check out FunBites.
I have been given the opportunity to give you a chance to win a FunBites of your very own. You get to choose between the Cube It! and Love It! Cutter. Just fill out the Rafflecopter form below.

Trudeau has expanded its exclusive Stress Less™ line of kitchen tools designed to reduce the strain on hands and joints. Ideal for those with arthritis or limited hand dexterity, these products make everyday kitchen tasks easier and more enjoyable for everyone. Each item comes with a lifetime warranty.
I was able to try this set of set Stress Less line of kitchen tools and loved them. I never used fresh ground pepper or salt before. Now that I have I will never go back. I love how this set is so easy to use. The can opener surprised me the most. I thought it wasn’t working and was complaining to hubby when the top came off and I was amazed at how clean and very easy it was to use. Hubby loves the Garlic Press. He loves garlic and was very pleased at how easy the Garlic Press was to use. Last night we used the Rotary Cheese Grater to have fresh cheese on our lasagna and it was great. My 13yr old son likes the pizza cutter because he can use it to cut his pizza on his own. This family gives the Trudeau Stress Less set 6 thumbs up!

So what is Champorado? Champorado is a sweet chocolate rice porridge, a typical snack in the Philippines made by boiling rice with pure cocoa powder or tablea. Sugar is added to sweeten it. Adding milk is optional especially if you’re not a fan of the rich cocoa flavor. This can be served hot or cold and delicious as dessert, breakfast or snack.
In the Philippines though, we use pure cocoa tablets. We then grate it and use this for the Champorado. When served as breakfast, it is usually paired with grilled or fried dried fish or tuyo. However, if you don’t like the combination of salty and sugary, you might find it odd.
Make sure to use pure cocoa powder. This will give your Champorado a distinctive flavor. Your house will be impregnated with the smell of pure cocoa! Heaven! Imagine the flavor and the scent plus its warmth: perfect for those rainy days! It’s like a cup of hot chocolate drink with marshmallows swimming in it ^^)
This recipe will yield 2 servings.
For this recipe, you will need:
100g of White Rice (when using glutinous rice, make sure to adjust the amount of water)
Pure cocoa powder, unsweetened and de-fatted (amount will depend on how rich you’d like the chocolate flavor)
Sugar to taste
1. Wash rice. Pour it into the pot. Pour water into the pot with rice and bring it to a boil.
2. Stir once in a while to keep the rice from sticking to the pot and from clumping. You can of course cook it in a rice cooker, just set it in porridge option.
3. Disolve the cocoa powder in a cup of warm water before pouring it into the pot of cooking rice and stir continuously.
4. Once the rice is cooked, add sugar to taste and stir continuously until it thickens.
5. To serve, drizzle with milk on top. This can be served hot or cold. Enjoy!
