I know lots of websites boast "one stop shopping". They talk about how many products they carry and how you can find everything and anything if you shop with them. Now it just may be my own dumb luck but when I go searching for an item at one for these "one stop shopping" sites that I never find what I am looking for. Then I spend the next hour popping in and out of one internet shop to another.
What if there was one place you knew for sure would have what you were looking for? One place where they didn't have one or two stores but over 200 stores to shop from in the comfort of your own home. Where the customer service is wonderful and the brands names are huge. There is such a place and it is called CSNStores.com.
I was asked to browse the stores and pick an item to review from CSNStores.com. Last year I did a review for CSN Stores but it was specific to baby/toddler gear. This time I had a chance to really look at all the stores, well almost all, there's just too many. I could not decided which direction I wanted to go. I could always use a new lamp for my sewing room. Maybe a new big play rug for the girls room or maybe a new collar or leash for Sookie. So many choices, this was going to be tough.
However I did finally decide. I headed over to Cookware.com and found something perfect for the whole family. What was it?
A Rachael Ray Porcelain Enamel 18"x9.6" Double burner Griddle in Blue. Ya baby! Isn't she pretty :) This is what I thought would be fun for the whole family. We have gotten away from cooking family breakfasts on the weekends. Life just became to busy. I wanted my girls to have the memories I did when mom would make breakfast on Saturday morning. Sometimes I would even help depending on what Saturday morning cartoons was on. My girls love to help me in the kitchen so I wanted to bring back the family weekend.
I picked this particular griddle because I dig Rachael Ray and I already have a full set of the Blue pots and pans plus me being a matchy, matchy freak..well it just had to match right..lol So Saturday morning while daddy was at drill the girls and I had fun making whole wheat pancakes from scratch! That's right, no Bisquick here (Bisquick is my love), we rocked it old school and had a blast in the process.
