Travel Tips for Spring - Tuesday, April 08, 2014
SPRING has officially SPRUNG here in Kentucky! We are so happy to welcome in the warmer weather and all that accompanies it: barbecues, flip flops, camping, and just fun in the sun! We hope that those of you living in other parts of the country can say the same.

Spring is a good time to get away for the holidays and to vacation. You want your home to be safe while you’re gone, though. Here are some helpful tips to give you peace of mind while you’re travelling:


1. Lean on Friends
Ask your friends or neighbors to keep an eye on your house while you are away. Having someone pick up your mail shows activity at your house while you are not there.

2. Stay off of Social Media
Don't tip off criminals to your whereabouts on Facebook, Twitter, etc. You are announcing to the world that you are not home.

3. Lights Off
Don't leave your lights on the entire time you're gone. That is a sure sign that there is abnormal activity at your house, and a good way to increase your electric bill!

4. Spare Keys
Remove the spare key you may have hidden under the door mat or that fake rock outside. If someone knows you are not there, that just makes entry much easier.

5. Unplug
Unplug your small appliances to protect from power surges, as well as to save power. Most appliances utilize power even when they're turned off, but still plugged in. We would even suggest turning your water off if you will be gone an extended period of time. You never know if that leaky faucet could get worse.

All of us at Blaze Products hope you take time to relax this spring and enjoy your family and friends! But, be safe and take precautions - you just never know!
Stay Safe This Winter - Tuesday, January 28, 2014
Many of you have probably experienced some of the problems winter has caused for people this year - bursting pipes, auto accidents, health issues, etc. We hope you are all taking measures to stay warm, safe, and healthy!

Here are a few tips we hope will help you through this harsh winter:

-Open cabinet doors under sinks to allow heat to enter and keep pipes from freezing.

-Keep a small, continuous stream of water running from the cold water faucet (the size of the water stream should be about the size of a pencil).

-Locate the water shut-off valve in advance. This is the valve that controls the flow of water into the house. It's usually located near the hot water heater, in the basement or utility closet. Turning off the water in he event of a burst pipe can minimize the damage.

-Cover the vents to crawl spaces.

-If exterior faucets have shut-off valves inside, be sure to turn these off and open the exterior valve so it can drain out.

-If you have a vacant home or building, set the heat to above 58 degrees.

-Do not leave space heaters unattended to reduce the risk of fire.

-Keep a first aid kit and blanket in your car in case of emergencies.

-Review your home and auto insurance policies to be sure you are covered in the case of a burst pipe or auto accident.

-Keep distance from those you know are sick and wash your hands often.

-Disinfect door and cabinet handles at your home and office, as well as office supplies, such as staplers, that are used by various people. Disinfectant wipes are an easy and effective way to do this.


Everyone at BLAZE Products wishes you a safe and warm winter!
Have A Very Merry Christmas - Monday, December 16, 2013
All of us at Blaze Products would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas! We hope your holidays thus far have been filled with lots of family, friends, and fun. After all, that is part of what makes this time of year so special!

We're sure you already have your Christmas meal planned (and purchased the groceries... right?), but what about Christmas morning? The kids are up early, all excited to open their gifts, and all you're really thinking about is getting some coffee brewing so you can stay awake to put that new toy together. By the time the wrapping paper has hit the floor, your stomach is GROWLING for something other than caffeine. We've got a solution for that! The writer behind the food blog Table for Two has an excellent suggestion on a Christmas breakfast recipe that is sure to please both your schedule and your tummy. You prep it the night before, put it in the oven Christmas morning, and you're ready to chow down by the time the presents are opened (doesn't that sound too good to be true?!). Her recipe for Overnight Eggnog French Toast Bake sounds so yummy and satisfying, it is sure to make your Christmas morning all the more enjoyable.


Overnight Eggnog French Toast Bake
*Modified w/o the rum in the original recipe to be kid friendly.

Yield: 6-8 servings
Prep Time: 10 min + overnight chill time
Cook Time: 45-50 minutes

Ingredients:
- 1 large loaf of French bread, cut into large 2-inch cubes
- 2 1/2 cups eggnog
- 6 large eggs
- 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. dark brown sugar
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 1 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions:
1. In a large measuring cup or bowl, whisk together eggnog, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
2. Spray a 9 x 13 inch glass baking dish with cooking spray. Add the bread cubes into the pan. It will be a tight fit, but that's OK. Press them down gently, if need be.
3. Gently pour the eggnog mixture all over the bread cubes. Using the back of a spatula, press down on the bread cubes to help the bread soak up the liquid a bit. The bread will continue to soak up the liquid overnight.
4. Top the dish with chopped walnuts and cover tightly with foil. Place in the refrigerator to chill overnight.
5. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
6. Unwrap the dish (save the foil) and bake uncovered for 30 minutes. The top will be golden brown.
7. After 30 minutes, cover the dish with the foil you saved and bake for another 15-20 minutes, just to make sure the center is set and everything is warmed through.
8. Remove from oven and serve hot with maple syrup.

Note: it is okay if the middle of your dish is a tiny bit runny - that's how it's supposed to be and it is safe to eat. If you're worried, you can bake it longer until the middle is completely set/dry. This might take a bit longer than the suggested 45 min total bake time.
