Molly Ollie Mimmo Caddy **Review**

***I was gifted a Mollie Ollie Mimmo Caddy for compensation for writing this post. All opinions are my own.*** 

Last January, I “Marie Kondo-ed” our house and it was amazing. Since then, in addition to folding our shirts into those teeny tiny squares, I try and regularly assess what we do not need in our home anymore, and also how to better store the things that we do use frequently. 

Both of my kids love to draw and so we have a very large collection of art supplies. I can never make their playroom look like a pinterest art corner, and we keep basically every marker, pen, and crayon in one common plastic bin. It gets the job done for clean up, but it doesn’t let the kids see what all they have to work with. Seriously, I haven’t seen the bottom of that thing in years. 

So you can imagine it was a no-brainer when I was asked to review the multi-purpose caddy organizer - named the Mimmo Caddy by Mollie Ollie and I saw all of the many uses for their products beyond the baby nursery - because we all know I am not going back there…

The Mimmo Caddy is so cute and stylish, I kind of wish I did have it around back when I was toting diapers and wipes.

Here is what we love best about the organizer

  • It is made of a soft and chemical-free felt material in a trendy gray color 

  • It is easily collapsible when you want to pack it away, but maintains its shape in an upright position when empty or full

  • There are EIGHT pockets to choose from depending on what you are storing - we went with markers, pencils/pens, and crayons each having their own big space 

  • It has a thoughtful design: zipper pocket with an elastic organizing band to keep your small items away from little ones - we put erasers and stamps in our side pockets 

  • The inside is lined with polyester for easy cleaning 

  • The double handle makes carrying easy for everyone - even our littlest artist!

Magic Chef Air Fryer **Review + Recipe**

As I have gotten older and more “seasoned” as a mother, I have accepted and owned the fact that cooking just isn’t my thing. I used to think that if I had more flexible after-work time I would enjoy preparing meals for my family. But you know what, this is not and has never been me. 

What I realized is that when I have more flexible after-work time, the last thing I want to do is cook. My free time is best enjoyed in the bathtub, outside watching the kids play, or doing any other activity besides being in the kitchen.

But we gotta eat, so sometimes I cannot help it...And, like everything else in my life that does not bring me joy, efficiency is king. Meals that are nutritiously minded, easy to put together, and quick to actually cook without me hovering are the best in my mind. 

So when I was asked to try and review the Magic Chef Air Fryer by NewAir I knew that I would be an instant fan. Air fryers are known for not only creating healthy and tasty alternatives to traditionally oil-fried foods, but also they are some of the most time efficient small appliances on the market. 

Over the holiday weekend, the kids and I decided to try our hand at one of the Magic Chef Cookbook recipes: Parmesan Zucchini Fries. 

Recipe Ingredients: 
1-2 small zucchinis 

⅛ cp mayonnaise (*we used egg instead)

½ cup panko bread crumbs 

¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Fresh cracked pepper to taste 


1. Slice zucchini into strips like French fries

2. Combine the bread crumbs, parmesan, and pepper into a shallow bowl

3. In another bowl, coat the zucchini strips with mayonnaise, then roll them into the bread crumb mixture

4. Bake spread out in small batches for 8-10 min each, making sure the fries are not touching in the basket to keep them crisp 

The zucchini fries were a hit! We dipped them in ranch or ketchup...YUM

*So what did I think about the air fryer? 
*I love the small footprint so that it doesn’t clutter the kitchen counter when in use 

*It can hold up to 5.6 quarts of food for serving the whole family - or just a hungry preteen boy 

*The digital touch screen is super easy to use and intuitive 

*The air conduction technology evenly AND quickly cooks tasty food every time 

*The food is so crispy!!
