Try Greek Salad with a Maple Twist

No Romaine? No Problem – try this lettuce-free salad with your next meal.

Consumer Girl: Welcome to my Blog

Have you ever bought a product you absolutely regretted buying because you lacked information or were sadly misinformed? On the other hand have you bought items you wish you could still get more of?

Truth be told, I have done both on a number of occasions. Over the years, I have learned to do my homework – lots of research and learn something new every time I contemplate making a purchase. This is true whether it’s new, used, bought on-line or in person.

One day I thought: I would really like to share this with you and hear what you have to say.

Who am I?
