Hello and welcome to my blog.

I am Karin and glad you are here.

Get comfy and stay a while.

My blog is called “We Tried it at Home”. I want to share things I have learned and tried that made my life better and easier. I hope that the articles I share will help someone out there looking for an answer. I have product reviews, automobile reviews, pet information, health & diet information and recipes.

I promote products that I own and use and companies I trust.  If I don’t own the product, I will research the product and seller before promoting it.  I want to be honest and transparent and provide value to my readers.

I am a wife, mother and dog mom. I have also been a cat mom and ferret mom in the past.

I don’t like to cook, but I love to eat!  Because I love to eat, I am always looking for the best way to lose weight.  I have struggled to lose weight since gaining 50 pounds when I was pregnant with my son. 

I like kitchen gadgets, since I do have to cook for my family, I want the right tools for the job.

I am not a selfie person, in fact I don’t like pictures of me. Just picture me as a five foot six inch 110 pound blonde. Ha ha, I look nothing like that, but it is nice to think that is how you all see me!

I have been kicking around the idea of starting a blog for over a year now. I work in the medical field and big changes with my company had me wondering how much longer I would have a job. Things are still changing and you never know what can happen.


My all time favorite car is the Chevy Corvette. I have owned a 2006 Corvette in the past and can’t wait to own another one! I currently have a 2013 Cadillac SRX and will have some articles about my experiences with it.

Now we have a Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak everywhere and I knew I had to share my frustration with trying to find made in America food and other products. We need to support American companies now more than ever!
