Disclaimer- The use of the word Frack as a noun, verb,  adverb, adjective, participle, dangling participle or any other type of word id purely a form of self indulgence and flattery.  If it offends you- stop reading- I am the one that has it for my surname and quite frankly I LOVE IT!  One more thing...This isn't a forum for Battlestar Galactica either- don't tell me you were sucked in and then disappointed. ALSO- NO directional drilling here.


I am back! What the Frack is that, you said? Woo Hoo, I AM BACK.  December came and went and left me with no time to blog! It was a CRAZY MONTH.  No writing but I did try LOTS of stuff to write about!!




Here is my back story...I like to buy stuff. Not expensive stuff, like my husbands stuff, but stuff just the same.  Cooking products and beauty things and stuff for my kiddos.
Sometimes it rocks- Sometimes not so much.


This blog is all about my stuff.  Mrs. Frack's stash...I am going to give you the low down on the products that you may have seen out in stores and let you know if it is a great find- OR NOT.


Here is my rating system:
Flipping FRACKTASTIC- 5 Stars
Frack-a-lackin'- 4 Stars
SatisFRACKtory- 3 Stars
Back the FRACK off...- 2stars
WTF (what the Frack?)- 1 Star


Okay! This week's finds...


Schick Intuition Naturals Sensitive Care
Ok, you have to have seen these and wondered does that really work?  It's the disposable razor that has a "skin conditioning solid" that encases the blades- always ready to lather- just add water.  This version contains 100% Aloe with Vitamin E, hypo-allergenic and fragrance free.  Sounded GREAT!  On top of all of that it's made with 100% recyclable packaging with recycled material.  (not sure what that actually means but it makes me feel clever.)  Week one: LOVE this product!  It's quick and easy and works.  Wet it and it lathers -skip that WHOLE step of shaving creme.  NICE!  Clever and a time saver!  The first sign of trouble came about 10 days into my new sassy, "save the planet razor" when I had to replace the head.  Huh?   My can of shaving creme wouldn't even be close to being caput.  Oh well, I kept the travel cap on it in the shower so I bet that is the reason it wore off so fast.  Replaced it.  Week two- how did I cut my ankle?  Tiny, little cut...hmmm.  Week 3- how did I scrape of a layer of skin off my arm pit?  NO I AM NOT KIDDING.  WHAT THE FRACK IS THAT?  The worst part? Bought my bundle at SAMS club so I have 50 and spent $100.  (reality check: 12 heads/ 1 razor for $23) So there you have it.  NOT a WINNER. Skintimate Shaving Creme and Venus Razors I am coming home.  Not clever but not cut. :) 



Rating: Back the Frack Off
( not the worst because it is 100% recyclable = clever)

Dynasty Sesame Chili Oil
I have used Sesame oil in the past but never tried the chili version.  This is nutty, silky and warm.  Not extremely spicy, but yes, you can feel it.  It's perfect to drizzle on stir fries or into homemade dressings.  The bottle is little but you only need a small amount.  My 3.5oz bottle cost about $4.00 but I have seen it cheaper at Cost Plus World Market (which by the way is one of my FAVORITE stores!).  Listen to this description from one of Dynasty's retail partners: "Made from pressed sesame seeds, steeped with red chiles, this oil has a rich aroma and a fiery bite with a lingering spice."  Sounds exotic 'cuz it is. 
Dynasty, Oil Sesame Chili, 3.5 oz (Pack of 12)
Rating: Frack-a-lackin'



If you want to try this oil here is a GREAT recipe:

(just sub the sesame chili oil for the vegetable oil)

I don't know about Sam's Club but Costco would allow you to return that bundle of blades - that's a ton of money. Always amazed at how pricey blades are - truly a rip!!
 
Jan. 4, 2012 4:20 am
I,too, enjoy your Frackin blogs! The recipe looks super and I will get it entered into a menu. I use a sesame chili oil that I get at an Asian foods store and love it! As for the shaver thingy,I can't make myself get interested.

I love the Sesame Chili Oil too. Thanks for the heads up on those razors. If Sam's won't take them back I would contact the company. What a waste of money. :( Fracks-a-lot for another great blog.

Frackin fabulous, too bad about the blades and they say waxing can hurt? That sounds awful. I love sesame oil for Chinese dinners, will see if they have a chili flavoured one when my bottle gets low.

Jan. 4, 2012 4:52 pm
OOOH Lissa! You are definately in my club! LOVE that place. I find the best stuff I never knew I needed there. Plus the prices are pretty good.
 
Jan. 4, 2012 5:58 pm
LOLOL! Love the "frackin" adjective!
 
Jan. 4, 2012 6:43 pm
The oil is packed for Ahning out of Los Angeles. Made in Taiwan. When you look at the front of the label you'll see large Chinese charactors at the top. In English just below you'll see "Sesame Chili Oil". You made me look at the bottle and I discovered it is only called sesame oil. When I read the ingredients I saw it was actually soybean oil with chili oil. I've been using it for thre years and have been enjoying it. I wonder if I'll use it now that I know it's fake. Hmmmm.
 
Jan. 4, 2012 6:56 pm
Well, guess what! The one I have is fake too. Dang it!
 
Jan. 4, 2012 7:21 pm
Great blog as always! I'll to try to find the chili oil.

Did you know that "fracking" is what happens when they force water and air into the earth to release natural gas? That's why Ohio has been having earthquakes.
 
Jan. 10, 2012 9:25 am
Jeri- I do know that. I did not know that Ohio was having earthquakes though.

About Me
We have 3 crazy, loving, little boys- ages 11, 8 and 6. I work and my husband stays home- NOT what we planned but it's what life dealt us. I am a regional director of a HUGE prestige cosmetics company. My husband and I have been married for 12 years and he is truly my best friend.
My favorite things to cook
ANYTHING! I love to cook and try to cook something new as much as I can. I get a chance to cook about 4 nights a week. My husband cooks the other two and Friday is PIZZA night.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love to eat cabbage and noodles at least once a month. It's a horribly decadent little treat that we all LOVE. It is SO good.
My cooking triumphs
I haven't had many BIG deals when it comes to cooking. I like to try new things all the time. My dream would be to run a catering company or even just work for a caterer. It seems like a blessing to make other's functions really special.
My cooking tragedies
JELLO- darn it! Mine never sets.
