I am a southern girl, and I love to eat. I received the Ninja 3 in 1 Cooking System and had to try it out. I had all the ingredients on hand to make a pot roast.  This was probably one of the best roast I have ever made. My mom even said it was better than her roast. Ingredients Italian dry seasoning Ranch dry seasoning Brown gravy seasoning Slow Cooker Pot Roast Seasoning Carrots Potatoes Onions Salt Pepper Paprika Directions: Heat your Ninja with some olive oil .Salt and pepper the roast before flouring and browning. Add onions and saute for a few minutes. Then add the seasonings to approx. 4 cups of water. I added a little flour so I could acquire a thicker gravy. I used a whisk to mix thoroughly.

Promised Land Dairy

Disclaimer: I was sent several flavors of milk to test out for review. My views and your views may vary. I was offered to try out some  Promised Land Dairy milk for a review. I started to say "no way".  I could not say no because I was dying to try some of the flavors. I am not a milk drinker. My dad on the other hand drinks way to much milk. He drinks about a gallon every other day. My milk arrived in a cooler and was still ice cold when it arrived. I put the milk in the refrigerator.  As you can see, I got Cookies N Cream, White, Chocolate, and Peaches N Cream. I could not wait to try the Cookies N Cream. I opened up the bottle and poured a glass full. I used a straw and started drinking the milk. This milk was so good, it tasted like a milkshake. I could not believe it. I told my husband to try it out and he loved it. I saw him the next night getting another glass he said he needed something sweet. I guess he felt the same way I did. The chocolate flavor is chocolatey and … [Read more...]
