SunRidge Farms Nuts

Did you know that August 3rd was Grab Some Nuts Day?  If you missed, have no fear — you can still enjoy some nuts!  This summer, whether you’re on a hike, on a long bike ride, or at the office and need a burst of energy and protein, you know what to do.

SunRidge has a few great nuts to try out:

  • SunRidge Farms’ Thai Curry Cashews – batch roasted cashews are tossed in exotic all natural spices cumin, turmeric, paprika and cayenne pepper.  Everybody like these!
  • SunRidge Farms’ Sea Salt and Pepper Cashews – nutty, buttery cashews are sprinkled with a perfect blend of sea salt a cracked black pepper.  These are my husband’s personal favorite.  He said they were awesome.
  • SunRidge Farms’ Wasabi Tamari Almonds – batch roasted almonds and carefully seasoned with bold wasabi and savory tamari spices.  These weren’t as hot as I thought they would be (which is good for me because I’m not a huge fan of hot and spicy).  We had some family try these too, and they were surprised by them.  My SIL said she normally doesn’t like almonds and liked these!

All of the above products are all natural and do not contain GMOs, hydrogenated oils, preservatives or artificial ingredients. Even better, these products are not only great for you, they’re also great for the environment! All of them are produced in SunRidge Farms’ recently expanded solar-powered manufacturing facility. Hand-crafted in small batches using only the finest, healthiest and freshest ingredients, they also are naturally flavored and colored.  The company also uses biodiesel delivery trucks, powers its sales fleet with hybrid vehicles, offers recycling education classes, and pays employees $5 a day to bike to and from work!

A great company and a great nuts.  What more can you ask for?

KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade

Bill loves anything that is Buffalo.  He likes hot and spicy which is why I knew he was going to love trying KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade.  This authentic sauce is spicy with a tangy kick.  It is made with red pepper, garlic, and paprika.  Bill has used his KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade in many different ways.

First, he’s used it as a marinade on chicken.  That was a huge winner.  When I made chicken nuggets for the kids, Bill used his KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade to kick it up a notch on his.  He covered his chicken nuggets with it and said it was some of the best chicken nuggets he’s had.  You name it, I think he’s used the KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade on it!

KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade is a new fixture in my kitchen and should be in yours too!
