Jesben Slow Cooker Sauce Review

I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review.


Wouldn't it be nice to have dinner only take 5 minutes and not come out of a box that contains who knows what ingredients!?
And wouldn't it be nice if that dinner was full of veggies, was all-natural, gluten-free and had no preservatives/artificial ingredients?!  Plus on top of all that be something that your kids will love...
And no I'm not crazy a product like this does exist!
Today I want to tell you about Jesben Slow Cooker sauce.  This sauce has almost everything.  The only thing you need to add is your meat.
It was invented and crafted by a stay at home mom who wanted only the best for her kids.  When I received my product she wrote me a super sweet letter and the one part I loved was when she said this 'I am one of those picky moms who want to serve my kids healthy meals that they enjoy.  At the same time, I don't want to spend too much time in the kitchen I figure if you are a stay at home mom, you are there because you want to to spend quality time with your kids not be in the kitchen all day.'  I smiled because she gets it!  I want to be a stay at home mom so I can be there with my kids not slaving away at house work all day.  I knew right away someone who spoke with this kinda passion about her kids was going to have amazing products.  She made them with love, these are things she feeds her own little ones.  I couldn't get into my kitchen and start cooking fast enough.

 
All the ingredients to make it taste great are already in the sauce.  All I had to do was add meat.  It took me 5 minutes to put my meat and sauce into the crockpot.  5 minutes and I had a wholesome meal for my family.  I left it cook for 8 hours the hard work was done.  All that was left to do was serve it later that night.

I leave for work at 6am and I don't get home until 5.  In a small time frame I need to feed my kids, do homework, get them to practice, make sure the get showers and get them to bed.  I like to spend quality time with my boys in between all this running around.  I don't want to spend an hour of that time making dinner.  That is why this mama swears by Jesben Sauces.  My kids get a great tasting dinner, that is good for them.  And I get time with my boys.  And lets admit it after doing all I need to do in a day it is nice to have a dinner that cooks itself.

Our favorite has always been the Jesben Slow Cooker BBQ sauce.  I use to order it from Abes Market, but more recently started to order it from amazon.  Thanks to the lovely people at Jesben though I was able to try several new sauces and my family feel in love with each of them!!

CLASSIC POT ROAST

Nocciolata from Rigoni di Asiago

i was given products in this post for the purpose of review I was not paid to write this review
My little sister is going to be coming to my house on Saturday and we will spend the entire day baking!  We bake cookies, pie, cheesecakes and everything else to make Christmas a dessert Heaven.  We have the cookies we make every year, but we also have our "newbies"  this is cookies (or desserts) that we are trying for the first time.  If everyone likes them we add them to our Christmas list for the following year.

This year thanks to Nocciolata From Rigoni Di Asiago we now have all new ingredients to work with!
Never heard of them!?  Well you are missing out!

I have been eating their NOCCIOLATA nonstop since it arrived!!  It taste good on toast, crackers and even pretzels.  And I just found a whole new way to eat it!  In the middle of thumb print cookies!!

Never had a thumb print cookie, well it is super easy to make.  You go to your local grocery store and get premade sugar cookies (I say premade because the texture is always a bit easier to work with)  Then you but them on your baking sheet.  Before the go into your over though you want to use your though to make a well in the middle.  Bake as directed.  When the come out I put a spoonful or Nocciolata in the middle.  Put them in the fridge to cool and tada!  Amazing, super taste, super easy to make holiday cookies!

Delta Children MySize Double-Sided Storage Easel @DeltaChildren

I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review.  All opinions are my own.

A little over a year ago I took my kiddos with me to an art class.  We painted, laughed and just had a great time.  I love to paint, I do it when I'm happy, sad or even just mad.  It is kind of my thing.  I really though my kiddos would just go to this class and be over it.  Boy was I wrong, now every time I get a canvas I have to grab them one too!!  We all set up in my kitchen and just paint.  Most of the free space on their bedroom walls are taken up by their paintings.  I love that I was able to share my love or art with my boys.

The only bad thing is, I don't really have the right equipment for my boys.  I prop up their canvases with water bottles!!  It would be nice to have some real equipment, and thanks to Delta Children now I do :)
MySize Double-Sided Storage Easel 
 This two-sided easel features a chalkboard side and a magnetic, dry-erase whiteboard side Easel, bins and pull down paper roll with 33’ feet of paper Two convenient fabric storage bins keep crayons, markers, extra paper, paint or toys within reach Made from strong wood, this easel is durable and built for years of use

Spark artistic play with the MySize Double-Sided Storage Easel from Delta Children. This two-sided easel for kids features three different drawing surfaces—a chalkboard on one side, a magnetic dry-erase whiteboard on the other, and a pull down paper roll on top (33 feet of paper included). 
So with kids I'm sure you know they get bored easily.  It is nice to have several different functions.  One minute they are painting, the next they are doing chalk art and also Quinn is spelling out words with his magnetic letters.  It is like having 3 in 1. 
I also like the fact it has little ledges, my boys put their paint brushes here when they want to switch to a different size brush.  It makes clean up easier on me.


Just the right height for growing artists, this kids easel encourages creativity and allows little ones to develop their fine motor skills through painting, drawing, coloring and writing.
 It really is the perfect height.  My boys can stand to do art or even sit in one of their chairs.  The easel is just at the right height that they don't need to bend over or stretch up to do their art work.


 Two storage bins underneath the easel keep art supplies neat and nearby. 
This mama can never get enough storage space!  I find crayons all over the place, now my kids have a large space to put all this extra art supplies. 


Available in a number of beautiful finishes: Grey , Bianca White and Dark Chocolate.  You can match the easel to fit any room.
  

I did build this by myself, the only tool I needed was a screw driver.  It took me about an hour.  I'm not the greatest at building though, so it might take a normal person less time.  The instructions were super easy to follow.  I also love the fact this easel is very light weight.  I can easily move it from room to room, when we don't use it I have it pushed up against a wall.  My youngest is 7 and he can easily pull it out himself.  So thumbs up to Delta for my a kiddo friendly easel!!

Kernel Season's review

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid in anyway to write this review.  All opinions are my own.


Kernel Season's review 



The Miller's are a popcorn eating family.  We like buttery popcorn, sweet popcorn, savory popcorn and even cheesy popcorn.  We just love it, whenever I ask the kids if they want to watch a movie, it goes without saying that popcorn will be there!  
And guess what
Kernel Season's took our beloved snack and make it better!  You simply choose your favorite flavor fill the cap and dump it on!  Not only do they have yummy Seasonings, but they also have popcorn oil and actual popping corn.  Oh wait they aren't done yet, they also offer Drizzle Brittle!  And yes dear readers it is as good as it sounds!  I could spend an entire post telling about all the great flavors and flavor combinations you could do, but instead I want to tell you about the products I was able to review.
I went sweet, so I was able to review

Drizzle Brittle Chocolate 

When the rich taste of chocolate hits the brittle crunch of popcorn, it transforms it into a candied treat. But the fun really comes from pouring on just the right amount of Drizzle Brittle to satisfy your sweet tooth.

The fun starts when Caramel Drizzle Brittle’s real caramel hits the brittle crunch of popcorn. Keep pouring it on to create a deliciously unique candy-coated treat. After all, you can’t have too much of a good thing.

No melting. No glazing. Just shake on our Caramel Corn seasoning for the sweet, buttery caramel taste you crave.

A Chicago tradition

Kernel Season’s wanted to share our hometown's legendary mix of sweet, buttery caramel and savory cheddar cheese.

Chocolate lovers, rejoice!

A quick sprinkle of Milk Chocolate Caramel seasoning turns popcorn into a chocolaty indulgence thanks to a combination of real cocoa, cane sugar and butter.

Nothing beats the sweet and salty taste of county fair kettle corn

Made with real cane sugar, our Kettle Corn seasoning lets you capture that flavor at home.

Ever single one of these taste amazing!!  The cheesy caramel may not be a hit with everyone, but my hubby LOVES IT!  Each seasoning is rich in flavor and lets everyone coming back for more.  I went from making one bowl of popcorn to having to make 2!  And with all our new choices I have to make 2 center bowl and everyone wants their own little bowl so they can make their own flavor.  My kids like to mix and match.  I have to admit their chocolate Carmel creation is pretty freaking amazing!
If you want to check out all the flavors for yourself please see my link below.  I promise you wont regret it!
