Mom’s Pepper Steak: Wondering Wednesday

Mom's Pepper Steak

Greetings to all! On Wondering Wednesday, I usually share something that randomly crosses my mind or that I want to explore further. Lately I have had food on my mind, so I want to share my Mom’s pepper steak recipe that was a go-to when my brother, sister, and I lived at home. We all played sports and were active, so this was a great protein and carbohydrate dish to give us the energy we needed before games and activities. My teammates would also come to the house some, and this is what they usually requested. It is fairly simple to make and feeds quite a few people.

Mom’s Pepper Steak


  • White Minute Rice
  • 1 or 2 Packs of Cubed Beef Stew Meat/Steak (depending on how meaty you want it)
  • Mushrooms Canned or Fresh (depending on time)
  • Onion
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 1/3 C Soy Sauce
  • 1/3 C Worcestershire Sauce
  • A few drips of A.1. Sauce or a little under 1/3 of a cup


  1. In a skillet, saute 1/2-3/4 of an onion, a red and green pepper, and fresh mushrooms. Cook until tender and shrunken somewhat.
  2. In a separate skillet, brown the beef stew meat. You may want to half the pieces to cook faster. I use cooking scissors for this.
  3. In a microwave safe container, make six servings of minute rice per the directions on the box. Water should be completely absorbed by the rice. Add a small amount of butter.
  4. Once steps 1-3 are complete, mix all of the ingredients together in a bigger skillet and pour in the sauces and mix it until the sauces are mixed evenly.

Serve with Ritz crackers or some rolls. I also like to add some ranch dressing to the top of mine.


This is one of those nostalgic recipes that takes me back to when I was a kid. While time flies, recipes and great memories of good food and fellowship remain. YUM!

What is Drop Shipping? What is a Drop Shipper?

Introduction to Drop Shipping

Online business opportunities have all kinds of allure in this day and age. Many people want the luxury of working from home and are searching for viable possibilities. When searching the internet one model that often comes up is “drop shipping” and oftentimes the next questions is “What is drop shipping” and “What is a drop shipper?” To put the meaning into simplest terms, drop shipping is a business model that is an appealing option to make easy, risk-free money as a side income or full-time income, depending on how much extra time a person has. Today the model will be discussed in ways that money can be made and the importance of finding reliable drop shippers, should this be that route that a person decides to take.

What is Drop shipping, and What is a Drop Shipper?

What is drop shipping

Let’s say you find an item in a hot niche and you just know that it is going to sell like hot cakes. You have ideas to create your listing, you have great pictures, but there is only one problem, you don’t have room to store all the inventory. What’s worse, you have very little money to sink into inventory. That’s where drop shipping comes into effect.  A trustworthy drop shipping company has a stockpile of items that they store and ship for you when someone buys from you. There is no hefty sum of money up front. Pay as you go.

With a traditional online business, space is needed to store the inventory, be it a garage, basement, office, or warehouse space. Many people despise the clutter. Drop shipping makes you the middle man (or woman) :). You create beautiful sales copy, purchase the products for the customer, provide a forwarding address for the drop shipper company, and the company ships it for you. Easy Peasy! No risk of dealing with slow-moving inventory or large upfront investment. More time for the more pertinent parts of building a business.

How Do I Make Money?

Make Money Drop Shipping

The first step is to open a store or multiple stores. This can be through a marketplace like Amazon or Ebay. There will be a seller’s fee, but the traffic will be there quicker for your business. Sometimes using this route the profit margins can be slimmer, but your product will probably be in front of more eye balls just starting. The other option is to create a personal store. The beauty of a personal story is that there are no seller fees and one can benefit from more profit. A personal store can be created easily by CLICKING HERE. The next step is to populate the store of your choice with the very best products that are drop ship eligible. Depending on your business plan, you can then mark the prices up anywhere from 10-50%. A comfortable profit margin is one that makes the efforts seem worthwhile and can vary from person to person depending on the situation. The main thing at this point is to take action in some capacity.

How Do I Find Drop Shippers?

Finding Drop Shippers

Many people will tell you to resort to China for all of your sourcing needs. However, there are three problems with this:

  1. Sometimes you invest money but never receive the products.
  2. Sometimes the products are knock-offs and not the brand they promise to be.
  3. If a good supplier is located, shipment time is several weeks to several months

I took to the internet to find an alternative to the sourcing-from-China strategy. I wanted vetted sources that were trustworthy and companies that would get the products to customers quickly. The option that made the most sense for me was SaleHoo. If interested, more information can be viewed about the company by CLICKING HERE.

A person can mess with long wait time from China or scour thrift shops, consignment stores, and secondhand stores, but our time in life is worth something, and this makes product sourcing much more efficient with the luxury of selling and repeating the process over and over. If you are still thinking about whether SaleHoo is a viable option for you and your product sourcing needs, Read my full SaleHoo review by CLICKING HERE.

SaleHoo Review 2019: Read This Before Buying

Salehoo Emblem

Today I come to you with my Salehoo review 2019 to hopefully help you make an informed buying decision. I want to start with where my passion for online business originated. Many of you all have your own stories, but here is mine…


As a kid, I was raised on a farm. My grandparents and parents would harvest various crops. Potatoes, corn, peppers, tobacco, and beans. At a young age, I was mesmerized at how my family would take these goods to market and make money from them. Many of these crops yielded several “pickings”, which provided them with items/produce to sell throughout an entire season.

Salehoo 2019 Review Seller

As I grew older, I developed a passion for e-commerce. Finding items here and there at yard sales, consignment stores, auctions and thrift shops was easy but quickly became a daunting task. A few bucks here, a few bucks there from Amazon, Ebay, and yard sales of my own. What I quickly realized was that the ease of acquiring products became harder. Many of us want so badly to scale a side gig into a full blown business, yet sourcing product for a season or the entire year becomes an issue. I turned to Google to attain my sources, but I quickly found that the internet was full of scams and shiny objects with inflated promises that never materialized.

I had all but given up on the idea that an online presences would ever be a viable option for me; however, a mentor whom I have a great deal of respect for recommended that I try a service called SaleHoo. I was skeptical at first, but then I saw it was cheap ($67) and had a 60-day money back guarantee. The company has over 8,000 legitimate suppliers, a hot-trends research lab, a huge support network, and an active forum with over 100,000 members. So I thought – what do I have to lose? Since there were many positives with a huge supporting cast, I gave it a try. It did, indeed, help me find the very best suppliers of cheap, legitimate items! But there are some downsides, so I suggest you read my whole review before you consider purchasing.

SaleHoo Review 2019: Amazing Support and an Active Forum

SaleHoo 2019 Review Suport

If you need some extra help or have some questions to ask, the SaleHoo staff are responsive to email inquiries and questions. As an example, I have emailed the staff if I had a certain product or niche in mind, and they have sent me a lengthy email with possible dropshippers who offer that specific product. In some ways, if feels like there is built-in coaching for any step along the way. The responses are always prompt. Someone typically replies within 24 hours (during the business week) with a list of fantastic suppliers and recommendations. The other notable companies for product sourcing don’t seem to be as generous with mentoring their clients like Salehoo.

We have all heard the expression that “it takes a village”. As such, the company has a forum of active members, all looking to help one another.

SaleHoo Does Require Some Prior Knowledge

SaleHoo 2019 Review Prior Knowledge

One con with SaleHoo is that it doesn’t include absolutely everything you need to get started in selling items on eBay if you are beginning. This type of training and knowledge will have to be acquired elsewhere through trial and error. SaleHoo won’t teach the art of persuasion and sales copy, or the secret sauce to become a power seller and make six figures per year. For that, I recommend Online Selling Tactics. I took the course, and learned a lot – and was very impressed. If physical products don’t seem appealing and service or digital products are more your style, check out this opportunity by CLICKING HERE

SaleHoo Sources Occasionally Require a Tax ID number

SaleHoo 2019 Review Tax ID #

Another con for some is the intimidation factor of getting a tax ID number, but this opens up many possibilities. Sometimes to deal with quality sources a seller must have a Tax ID number when he/she wants to scale a business to a high level. While a tax ID varies from state to state, the gist of it is one must apply with the state’s revenue service and then the person will be issued a number unique to them. It usually consists of filling out an application and the process usually takes a few days at most. While Salehoo offers product sources that do not require a Tax ID number, one should seriously follow through with applying for the tax ID number in order to use the full spectrum of options that SaleHoo has to offer.

Conclusion – Should You Buy, or Not?

In this SaleHoo Review 2019, I hope that I have presented some of the pro and cons to this . Should you buy SaleHoo? The answer, in my experience, is a resounding YES! It has over 8,000 suppliers (wholesalers, dropshippers, manufacturers and liquidators). They are legitimate and the lowest price that I could find. Their support staff is the best in the industry and they even tell you which products are the best to sell and which ones aren’t selling, saving you money.
