My Review of Tiger 2-Quart Saucepot with Glass Cover

Originally submitted at CSN Stores

This pot is ideal for slow cooking sauces, soups, and stews while reducing the content. The Tiger cookware saucepot is made from aluminum which is a great conductor of heat and a strong metal. This 2-quart sauce pot is part of the Tiger Collection which offers a variety of stockpots, saucepots and...

Perfect pot for cooking!

Pros: Non-Stick, Dishwasher Safe

Describe Yourself: Casual Cook

I purchased this Saucepot mainly because it was a good price. After recieving it I put it to the test right away, and I LOVE it! I have made Spaghetti sauce, Mac and Cheese, Soup, and Pasta in it so far, and everything came out wonderful. And, it is very easy to clean, nothing stuck, and rinsed out easily!
I would definetly recommned this pot to anyone, a casual cooker or a Proffesional cook would benefit from this Saucepot!

I've been gone for too long!

I just wanted to write an update, and apologize to everyone for not getting up to speed as I wanted to! The past few weeks have been just plain crazy, and every time I finally think we're back to normal, BAM!, something else happens and sets me back!
Right now my Mom is in the hospital, last Sunday she had an asthma attack and it got so bad my Dad called an ambulance for her. Turns out she has Pneumonia, and as of today she is still in the hospital. Only, it's now not due to the Pneumonia, it's because the meds they are giving her have been spiking her heart rate up very high, and now the Dr.s have decided to keep her in the Cardiac unit for a few days. After hearing that, I am just flat out scared! : ( My mom is not only my Ma, she's pretty much everything to me, my best friend, and I just want her better, and home!! I wish I could take her place in there, because she hates hospitals and I strange as it sounds, don't mind having to stay in the hospital. Having people tend to me and bring me food, well, sounds good to me! All kidding aside, if you read this and you pray, could you please say a little one for my Mom?
Soooo, as much as I'd like to just try and relax a bit this weekend, I don't see it happening! I'm hoping sometime next week I will have my latest reviews up and will be able to get a few of my new giveaways up!!

Thanks and hope you all have a great weekend!!

If I didn't have bad luck, I'd have NO luck at all!

Sometimes I think I have a permanent black cloud floating over my head! It seems like just when I think our life is finally getting back to normal, BAM, here comes a crap storm! If it wasn't for my kids, I think I'd pack up and leave, go somewhere far, far away, to never be heard from again.
I know that we make our own happiness, we create our own problems, etc., but for some reason, no matter how hard I try to do the right thing, something bad happens to me, my family, everyone around me. Mabye I'm just the family bad luck charm.
I'm so sick of hearing, "Don't worry, things will get better soon!", because they DON'T! Every time I think we've finally hit rock bottom, nope, we can still go farther down. It's tiring, I'm exhausted, and just don't know what to do anymore.
This is a mix of money problems, not being able to find a job, not feeling like myself anymore, and just feeling useless altogether.
I guess I do have to say that thru all of this, the hubby and the kids are what keep me going, even though sometimes I feel like I'm not doing anything worthwhile for them. I just wish I could wake up one day, and know it was going to be a GOOD day, for once!
Well, just another rambling post, thanks for listening, and mabye tomorrow will finally be a GOOD day for me!
