Our New Casper Mattress!

I usually don't promote too many products but this one I will promote and share.  We recently purchased this wonderful Casper mattress.  Let me tell you a little about this mattress.  We stumbled upon this bed by someone mentioning this to my husband, so we thought we check it out. There are Youtube video with comparison to all of these mattress as well. The mattress comes compressed in a box and it is hard to imagine a queen size mattress compressed so small to fit into a box. It comes with a small cutter to cut the plastic and simple easy instructions. There is a slight odor to the mattress (at least with mine) but nothing that doesn't go away after a few hours.

What is the difference with Casper and the rest? Well you don't have to go into a mattress warehouse or a mattress store and be hassled by sales people on buying a bed. No you can't test it out before hand but the beauty of the Casper mattress that you can try the mattress for 100 days and you don't like it, simply get a refund and the mattress will be donated. Simple as that. 

We have had the mattress now for about a month and I have to say without a doubt that we have been sleeping so much better and wake up in the morning feeling rested. No joke!  Some may feel that the mattress maybe a bit too firm, but we think it is more like semi firm and I love how you don't sink into the mattress like most Tempurpedic mattress that are so expensive. Casper mattress can be used with or without a box spring but we chose to use our new platform bed and we just love it. Just having a simple mattress on a bed frame  is so much easier than having to deal with a box spring.

"The Casper bed doesn’t sleep hot. After months of testing, we determined that a top 1.5" layer of latex foam would complement the support of our memory foam and provide significantly more circulation to keep sleepers cool. This isn’t the same latex found in tires or bedside tools, it’s a high performance foam designed for sleep. Unlike most modern foam-based beds, the Casper retains a traditional springiness that removes any sensation of being stuck and provides a helping hand to indoor sports"

Delicious Crab Cakes


Here is a delicious quick and easy crab cake recipe

1 large egg
2½ tablespoons mayonnaise
1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup finely diced celery (you’ll need one stalk)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
1 pound lump crab meat*
½ cup panko (Try Whole Foods 365 brand for this recipe)
Canola oil


1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

2. Combine the egg, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire, Old Bay, salt, celery, and parsley in a large bowl and mix well. Add the crab meat (be sure to check the meat for any hard and sharp cartilage) and panko; gently fold mixture together until just combined, being careful not to shred the crab meat. Shape into 6 crab cakes (about ½ cup each) and place on prepared baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

3. Preheat a large nonstick pan to medium heat and coat with canola oil. When oil is hot, place crab cakes in pan and cook until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes per side. Be careful as oil may splatter. Serve immediately with tartar sauce or a squeeze of lemon.
