Ninja Blender Duo With Auto-iQ Technology Review and Demo!

I had the pleasure of reviewing and testing the new Ninja Blender Duo With Auto-iQ Technology recently.  I own the older version of this blender and it’s still going strong.  I use it almost every day to make a breakfast smoothie for myself in place of coffee.  Trying to get off the coffee train so I’m choosing heather options.  I will be giving the older model to my son (who is buying a house and getting married shortly) for him and his wife to enjoy, I am sure for many more years of enjoyment out of it.

As many of you know I have had a love affair going on with Ninja and Shark (same company) products even before I started to review products for them.  I own many Shark/Ninja products and I love them all. They have served me well and continue to make my life easier every day. They are superior quality and dependable products for your home and I can say with certainty that you will never be sorry for purchasing a Ninja or Shark product.

Product Review: Power AirFryer XL

I had the pleasure of reviewing the Power AirFryer XL recently. It’s the latest in the line of products from the people who have brought you the Copper Chef Pan and The Power Pressure Cooker XL.

We all love fried foods but using gobs of oil to fry anything will add tons of calories to the dish (and not necessarily improve the taste) that is why I was so excited to receive this product for review. I have pretty much eliminated frying any type of food from my dinner table.  I for one have a very difficult time digesting anything fried and we certainly didn’t need the extra calories. I’ve tried to bake things like cutlets in the oven and they just don’t come out the same as frying them in oil they are tasteless and dry.

I have seen these air fryers in the past but was hesitant to try one.  However, after using the Power AirFryer XL I can honestly say that air-fried foods are back on the menu at our house.

Kansas City Steak Company Review!

I had the pleasure of reviewing the most amazing steaks from the Kansas City Steak Company recently.  They sent me four (4) 6 ounce Super Trimmed Filet Mignons, packed in dry ice and shipped overnight. The week we received these it had rained continuously for almost two weeks, so I was unable to grill them outside as originally planned. So…the next best thing was to broil them in the oven.  I didn’t even have to try and figure out what seasonings to put on the filets as they came with a seasoning packet right in the box.  These filets were so moist and tender it was like cutting into butter. I can honestly say these were the BEST filets we have ever eaten.  My husband, my son and I really enjoyed them so much, I plan to place an order from time to time.  Yes, they are expensive but I would sooner order these filets occasionally for my family than the steaks I buy at the market. Now I know how horrible the steak quality is at the local market compared to Kansas City Steak Company’s product.  There is no comparison – Kansas City Steaks are the best and I know you will agree once you taste them.

Here’s a little video I prepared for you so you can see the end result after they were broiled in my oven.

Each Kansas City filet is aged up to 28 days to enhance its flavor and tenderness.  These steaks are high-end restaurant quality delivered directly to your door.  Each steak is vacuum sealed and individually packaged so you can choose one or more each time you decide to serve them.  Each order comes with a Kansas City Steak booklet with cooking instructions, tips, and more.

The Kansas City Steak Company has been in business since 1932.  Their company is based firmly on family values – that’s why it’s been in business for over 80 years. Those standards of integrity, quality and hard work have made this company one you can trust.

Kansas City Steak Company has a variety of meats to choose from.  They not only have the finest quality steaks but they offer Kobe Beef, Seafood, Appetizers, Side Dishes, Desserts, Seasonings and Sauces and much more.

Kansas City Steak Company has a wide variety of gift options as well.  You can see them all here!

Ninja 3 in 1 Cooking System Review Model MC750

ninja3in1As many of your know (who have followed me for a while now) I have a love affair going on with Ninja and Shark products.  Way before I started doing product reviews for this company I was a huge fan of their products. I own several that are no longer even manufactured by Ninja/Shark so that should tell you how long I’ve been a fan.

I had the pleasure of testing the Ninja 3 in 1 Cooking System recently and it did not disappoint.  My favorite feature – you can place frozen food* in the Ninja 3 in 1 Cooking System and still have a cooked meal in time for dinner! What a lifesaver for many of us working Mom’s who sometime forget (me all the time) to take something out of the freezer the night before to allow it ample time to thaw in the refrigerator.

Power Pressure Cooker XL Review

I had the pleasure of receiving for review the Power Pressure Cooker XL from Chef Eric Theiss. Here is my honest opinion of this appliance.

You may have seen my review of another similar product a few months ago. I have to tell you that unless you are an experienced pressure cooker user, that other appliance leaves a novice like myself out in the cold, scratching their head trying to figure out how to use it.  I was so confused and frustrated with that other brand that it is now in a box in my basement. It will never get used again.

The Power Pressure Cooker XL is an amazing time-saving life-saver for any working Mom. This appliance can cook a meal in 30 minutes or less for your family and will save you a ton of money on nutritious daily meals instead of paying for take out food. Your Power Pressure Cooker XL can make roasts, stews, soups, breads, cakes, steamed rice, and so much more.

Product Review: Mini Mani Moo’s Mess No More

As many of my long-time readers know, I am a licensed manicurist. I don’t work in a salon anymore, but I do try to keep up my skills on friends and family as well as keeping up with the latest nail trends via trade magazines. I had seen an ad for this product and was so curious to give it a try. For the non-professionals with not-so-steady hands, this product could be the difference between a beautiful manicure and a complete mess.

Don’t you just love the company name? Mini Mani Moo – so cute!

Mess no more! is a product that you paint around your cuticles which dries to a skin-like consistency. Give it a few minutes to dry and then paint your nails. Don’t worry about making a mess of your cuticles or getting polish on your skin. Once you’re finished painting, just peel off the Mess no more! product and the mess is gone.

Copper Chef Pan and Accessories Review!

copperchef6pieceI have to admit (like with any of the products I review) I do my research and read previous buyer’s reviews. There are some not so favorable reviews about this product out there but honestly after reading the majority of them I think it is a case of buyers remorse. Most of these bad reviews were complaining about the price and how they felt the pan was not worth the selling price. I have to disagree.
