Dr. Nammy's Almond Fusion Nut Butter

Dr. Nammy's Almond Fusion Nut Butter is a fantastic treat that we at Texas Kitchen were able to sample. Dr Nammy sent over two jars of this delicious delight. Let me tell y'all about the two flavors we were blessed with.


First up was Mild Almond Fusion. WOW, this stuff is really really good. The mix of almonds and spices are perfectly blended to create what I consider to be a culinary masterpiece. Awesome on pretzels, fruit and bruschetta.

Mild Almond Fusion

Dr. Nammy's Mild Almond Fusion – This creamy spread has a mild red pepper kick, gentle enough for most palates with a perfect blend of garlic and other savory flavors. It’s a perfect accompaniment to any food. Serve with an assortment of fruit or raw vegetables like; apple slices, banana chips, strawberries, cucumber slices, celery, carrots. Almond Fusion is also a tasty accessory with crackers, pita chips, breadsticks, crostini, hummus and any mild cheeses. For meals, the Almond Fusion is a flavorsome complement with chicken, fish, pork, beef or simply toss in to pasta.
Ingredients include::
almond butter (almonds), xylitol (natural sugar substitute), lemon juice, garlic, salt, crushed red pepper, distilled vinegar.

Next we got to try Heated Almond Fusion. The addition of heat knocks this one out of the ballpark. Home run.

Heated Almond Fusion

Our Heated Almond Fusion is great for when you want just a little burst of flavor to tease your taste buds and chase away the winter blues. We love it mixed into a spicy hummus dip, on fresh veggies, along side of cheese or just scooped out of the jar and into our mouths.

 We at Texas kitchen got to try out the Robby Wash Blue Laundry Ball from Oransi. This is a great way to save money and help the environment while doing the laundry. According to the Oransi website Robby Wash will last up to 1 year (120 washes). I might need two or three. I do laundry daily. Just think of the amount of detergent bottles I use during the year. Wow, Robby Wash will make my carbon footprint so much smaller just in trash disposal.

 I love that Robby wash is hypoallergenic and safe for baby. Since I have sensitive skin this is great for me. I do not think all the chemicals in most detergents are good for your skin or the water supply. Robby wash reduces all that with it's safe alternative to traditional detergents.

I used the Robby Wash Laundry Ball and discovered that my clothes came out feeling soft and smelling clean No fragrance, just clean. I love that you can still get a great wash while saving money and helping the planet. Face it y'all this is the only one we have got. Let's try to take care of it.

Check out this video that shows how the Robby Wash Laundry Ball works:

Description     (from Oransi website)

The Robby Wash blue laundry ball pack is designed to be used in both cold and hot water for 12 months on average with softness and colors maintained.  Does not require any additional detergent to clean clothes or odor removal detergents to get your laundry smelling fresh. Works with both front load and top load washing machines.  The pack includes the blue washing ball, a stain stick and three extra packets of macro-molecule pellets. For advanced cleaning on dark clothes we also offer a fuchsia wash ball.
Simple to use - just put it in the wash. The Robby wash ball is an ultra high efficiency laundry solution with no need to add any detergent. Makes doing the laundry very easy and saves you the hassle of lugging home large containers of laundry detergent and cleaning up if you spill when adding detergent to your washer. Refill ball when level of maco-molecule pellets is less than 75% full. For over-sized washing machines we recommend using two washing balls.
This pack contains 10 ounces of macro-molecules which can clean for 12 months.  This is equivalent to 1200+ ounces (75+ lbs) of washing powder.  Consider what you are no longer dumping down the drain.
Economical: No need to buy washing powder, a savings of up to $100+ over 200 washes.
Caring for you laundry has never been so easy, efficient or inexpensive — as soon as the machine starts, the ball gets to work:
- Hypoallergenic and great choice as a baby laundry detergent cleaner or for someone with sensitive skin
- Cleans and protects your clothes
- Guards fabrics against oxidation and discoloration caused by chlorine in the water, and maintains your clothes' springiness
- Eliminates unpleasant smells thanks to its antibacterial action

Robby Wash saves you money but that's not all that makes it exceptional - it's the only laundry ball that add a light fragrance that you expect from your washing experience.
How it works:  The Robby Wash ball uses a unique and patented worldwide technology to clean your laundry even better than the powder laundry detergents it was independently tested against.  Its activated macromolecules are gradually released through the wash, dissolving dried-in stains by generating ions which activate the water molecules.  This increase in the pH enables the activated molecules to penetrate deep into the fabrics and attach themselves to the stains. As the motion of the drum agitates the clothes, the stains come away easily from the fabric and dissolve in the water.  Of all the systems on the market, Robby Wash's effectiveness is tested, proven and guaranteed.

 Oransi is based in Austin Texas that develops green cleaning products such as air purifiers to clean the air so you and those around you can breathe easier, sleep better and feel rejuvenated

Jeremy Riddle "Furious" CD

  If you enjoy contemporary Christian music as much as I do, You are going to love Jeremy Riddle's new CD "Furious". Tempos range from really upbeat to a calmer version of rhythms. I love Jeremy's voice and the message he puts through on this album. Superb listening experience for all ages.

Vineyard Worship artist and worship leader Jeremy Riddle has announced the release of his new studio album entitled, Furious.  The album is set for release on September 20 via NewDay Distribution.

Riddle began production on the album nearly a year ago with Dove Award winning producer Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, Matthew West, David Crowder Band) at the helm. Cash’s contribution forms the backbone of the album which also features production from Bobby Hartry, a long time Riddle collaborator.  The project follows Prepare The Way: Live, an album recorded in front of a live audience in Corpus Christi, Tex., earlier this year from Vineyard.

Riddle describes Furious saying, “It’s hard to come up with words that depict the magnitude of Christ’s love – the depth and width of it. Furious doesn’t work outside of the context of love; we tend to translate the word as angry, but I see it as a super-powerful force; stronger, deeper, broader than our vocabulary can fully describe."

Four years on the road as a touring worship leader eventually took its toll on Jeremy, so in January 2011, the former jr. high youth pastor came on staff as worship community pastor at Bethel Church in Redding, Calif. Working under pastors Brian and Jenn Johnson, Jeremy facilitates a worship community of over 200 people within the church.

“My wife (Katie) and I have always had a heart to serve the local church and never wanted to do the full-time travel thing for very long, so it felt like a good time to transition into something different,” Jeremy says. “I’ve developed such an appreciation for the fruit that has been sowed from my life – personally and artistically – by being part of a local community.”

Consequently, several of the tracks on Furious are also featured on Be Lifted High, the most recent album from Bethel Church.

“These songs are a reflection of being part of something bigger than just me,” Jeremy says. “Through some significant growth in understanding and living out humility from a very independent place, I’ve shifted into a place where I can’t even claim this record is completely inspired by me. There are so many elements of the album that could never have flowed from me had I not been connected to people walking out life with me.”
