A&E Tv Series Season 1 Now On Dvd (Breakout Kings) Drama That Will Capture You Every Week


Tags: Dvd Review, Tv Series Review, Television Series Review

Review Tv Show (Breakout Kings) Now
Available on Dvd Prisoners Work for a 2nd Chance



CAPTURE THE FIRST SEASON OF THE
BREAK OUT A&E DRAMA


I have been watching since it first aired
this A&E drama called
Breakout Kings
and now it's available on Dvd
from Twentieth Century Fox. Have you been
following this story along? If not, you should
be because there is some neat intriquing
things going on with this clan of criminals
who are trying to do the right thing. Breakout
Kings is from the same producers as one of my
old favorite's that I wished had not
ended-Prison Break. How I miss Michael and
Link from that series.
Anyway this television drama is really pretty
interesting and will definitely keep you
watching once you get started. They've even
added a female member to the cast now so as to
keep more guys tuning in I suppose. The first
season was awesome though I won't spoil it but
there is something big that goes down in the
final season one episode. It was surprising
and very unexpected so you should watch it and
get all caught up for season 2 to begin.

It seems the Nielsen ratings are very high for
this series so you should tune in and give it
a chance. I think you'll find just enough
suspense, drama and excitement to keep you
coming back every week to see what the chain
gang is doing. There is one character I'm a
little slow in trusting in the group,afterall
they are criminals. The rest of them though,
are a great team and I'd say they do a great
job of capturing fellow breakout criminals
each week.

Some Facts About Breakout Kings:

"Now renewed for its second season, “BREAKOUT
KINGS” follows some unconventional partners
working to catch convicts on the run. Driven
by the fact that there are few things more
dangerous than a prisoner who has just escaped
and tired of following protocol, veteran U.S.
Marshals Charlie DuChamp (Laz Alonso) and Ray
Zancanelli (Domenick Lombardozzi) are taking
an unorthodox approach to their work: using
former fugitives to catch fugitives. If they
agree to help, the fugitives’ sentences will
be reduced for each escaped convict they bring
in."

Breakout Kings Season 1 is loaded with
exclusive special features including:

deleted scenes
extended scenes
featurettes:
Good Cons
Bad Cons
Bullpin Sessions
T:Bag Dealt a Bad Hand (From Prison Break) a
crossover ooh that man gets under my skin. I
wouldn't want to be in the same room with him
EVER. Not even for a minute. If you've ever seen
him say his "Pretty" line you'll remember exactly
what I'm talking about. CREEPY!

So as you can see from reading over those mini
movies they've included a lot of extra film
goodies for everyone. The scenes look so real
and since the nature of the series is dingy
low criminals they play it just right. They
didn't clean up the sets and scenes to make
them pretty for this series. They are what you
would typically expect to see from the
criminal standpoint. I can't wait for season 2
to come back myself. The young lady I mentioned
above has actually slowly became my favorite of the
characters. For one thing she's nice and has a small
child so I am always rooting for her to get out and
be able to see her kid again. She has a way about her
that lets you feel sympathy for her even though she
is technically a fugitive of the law.

New 2012 Consumer Product Review Diabetic Snacker Reviews
Vitalicious Fudgy Cholate Vitacake Brownies 50 Calories




Vitalicious, has launched
their new fantastic
line of 50 calorie Fudge Chocolate Mini
VitaCakes! I know I've heard Hungry Gril talk
about them dozens of times so I just had to
try them out for myself. My friend was right
on too those are scrumptious morsels of
chocolately goodness. After trying these yummy
goodies I would expect to see them named new food
product of the year if there is such an event as
that!

This just happens to be one of the first 50
calorie products of it's kind to hit the
planet so I'm so happy I was able to do a
sampling of them for Diabetic Snacker Reviews.
This fudgy gem is also Vitalicious's lowest
calorie product option ever so they are
pleased with the results that they've seen so
far.

I Couldn't Have Said It Better:
"Launching just in time to jump-start healthy
New Year’s resolutions Fudgy Chocolate Mini
VitaCakes satisfy your passion for chocolate
and still leave you feeling full and
satisfied.
With 2g of protein 6g of fiber 14g of carbs
and only 1g of fat plus 15 vitamins and
minerals the all natural Fudgy Chocolate Mini
VitaCakes are loaded with as much nutrition as
they are with gooey chocolate goodness."

VitaCakes Brownies are made from wholesome
natural ingredients and only whole grains.
They contain no artificial coloring or
preservatives of any kind. Did you know that
it only takes 7 minutes to walk off the 50
calories contained in each Mini VitaCake?

Now how sweet is that? I am walking every day
already to reduce my
weight and help control my diabetes already so
I can easily enjoy one of these special treats
every day with no problem.

Vitalicious are also only 1 point on Weight
Watchers PointsPlus dieting program for all
you fans of them out there. I doubt you will
be able to find a more health friendly
chocolate snack anywhere in the United States.
Chocolate Mini VitaCakes are now available
exclusively online at:
Vitalicious.com.
I would suggest you give them a try and
order up a few dozen because they freeze well
too. I see some good snacking ahead in your
future. Enjoy the chocolate everyday and once you'd tried
these,come back here and let me know how much you liked
them too.

Gloria Litz co-writer Review :

"I have been trying the mini VitaCakes. The
flavor is fudgy chocolate. They are only 50
calories, so they are a good snack when your
calorie intake matters. They also contain 14
carbs. They have a lot of vitamins, and some
fiber. The consistancy is that of a brownie
but the taste is not as good as a brownie. I
don't think these would really satisfy my
chocolate craving but will do on a diet or in
a pinch."

US Potato Board Recipe Facebook Contest Potatoes Recipes Baked Fried Boiled Always Delicious & Filling!



Photo courtesy of US Potato Board

US Potato Board Has A Unique Recipe Contest Underway!
Diabetic Snacker Reviews Loves Potatoes In Every Way Possible




I've never met a potato recipe that I didn't like. I've come across
thousands of them over the years and enjoy finding new ones because
they are such an economical food to cook with. Plus it's a product
that even the kids like to eat. So finding good hearty potato recipes
is part of my mainstay around here in Indy. Recently I came across
the facebook contest being held by the
US Potato Board and thought you'd be interested
in hearing about it and maybe even entering it yourself.

Facts From US Potato Board:

"Each year, there are more than 1 million acres
of potatoes planted—that’s like filling the
whole state of Rhode Island with potato
plants. It’s the leading vegetable crop in
the US with a total production of 41.3 billion
pounds.
The United States Potato Board (USPB) is the
nation’s potato marketing and research
organization. Based in Denver, Colorado, the
USPB represents more than 2,500 potato growers
and handlers across the country. The USPB was
established in 1971 by a group of potato
growers to promote the benefits of eating
potatoes. Today, as the largest vegetable
commodity board, the USPB is proud to be
recognized as an innovator in the produce
industry."

There are so many ways that I like cooking potatoes here's just a few:

1.frying (olive oil not bacon fat)
2.baking
3.stewing (cooked down in a bit of butter)
4.broth boiled (cooked down in chicken or beef broth instead of water)
5.roasted in oven
6.baked french fries
7.scalloped
8.mashed
9.twice baked with cheese
10.potato cakes riced

See, just look at how easy it can be to change a spud into a wonderful
meal idea for your whole family. It's really simple and those are just
a kick in the bucket for how to use your potatoes to get the high
fiber our diets need everyday. Being diabetic I do have to limit my
starchs and potatoes has sadly fallen into that category but it hasn't
stopped me from enjoying them in moderation. One new way of cooking them
to me is to boil them and rice them thru my favorite kitchen toy
the ricer where they come out like tiny rice granules. Then I add
olive oil,salt & pepper to make them easy to form into little round
cakes. I then spray them with nonstick cooking oil spray and coat
them in panko whole wheat breakcrubms. I bake them in the oven at 350
degrees for about 25 minutes and they come out nice and crispy and just
excellent to taste. I also do add basil and herbs de provence to the batter before
forming them. So they are light and airy inside and super crispy
and crunchy outside. It's a winning recipe for me and completely
healthy and heart friendly which is important to me being a type
2 diabetic.

The recipe picture shown is this creation I made from changing up
one of their recipes.

Fish & Sweet Potatoes Dish

1/c sweet potatoes diced
1/2 cup onions diced
fish filet tilapia
panko bread crumbls 1/2 cup

Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Lay your fish
felet on the pan. Cover with diced sweet potatoes, onions and sprinle
all with the panko bread crumbs. Bake for 30 minutes and you will have
a glorisous sweet and crispy dish. It might be your new favorite easy
supper to go to so I warn you and it's a healthy choice too that's quite
filling.
The US Potato board sent me a kit with a mini cookbook, scrubbing gloves
and the biggest potato masher I've ever seen. I've been using these
handy hot potato gloves and they worked quite well. The masher is great
for any foods you need mashed not just potatoes. I often use a masher
to chop up my ground beef for recipes. It goes so much faster than using
a big cooking spoon.

Now go and fix yourself a piled high plate of potatoes and visit their facebook
page to enter their contest. It will make you feel so good.

Dvd Review (We Bought A Zoo) Mat Damon Stars As Gentle Zoo Keeper

(WE BOUGHT A ZOO) Family Movie Dvd Review
Dad of 2 Brings New Life To Families & Stays On budget



Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson On
Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download April 3



I had the most fun this week watching a new
California movie called
(We Bought A Zoo).
This dedicated movie is directed by Cameron
Crowe and is very enjoyable. The real zoo
owners took place in England but I thought the
film makers and crew did a great job of making
it look like that. It's a nice change of pace
from the last couple of movies I've witnessed
so I was especially glad to have received it.
The star is the always handsome Matt Damon who
plays Benjamin Mee a Los Angeles newspaper
writer who has an active adventure column. Of
course he's never lived any of the adventures
he talks about in far away places.
Benjamin is a single dad with two young
children Hoping that a fresh start could help
bring him and his young family back together
to appreciate some of the simple things in
life. He decides to quit his job like so many
of us would like to do. After quitting his job
he buys an older home in a rural setting
outside the city limits. It's a quaint new
beginning with a big
animal bonus in store.

It has a ZOO named the
Rosemoor Animal Park where dozens of animals
reside under the care of a Zoo Keeper and his
team. How great would that be to buy a house
with all of this already in place and working?
I think it would be great as long as you had
people already in charge of everything. I mean
at least the guy has some help it wasn't just
dumped in his lap and abandoned.
So here Benjamin is with no experience,
limited time and a budget below the American
average by a long shot. He tries his best to
reopen the zoo and involve his children with
the day to day activities it takes to run
something of this monstrosity. You have to
give the guy an A+ for trying. I think just
the smell from that many animals would be
enough to make me give up!
Now I received a screener dvd copy but I've
seen this has several options available to you
via blu-ray format. My opinion is with any
movie if you can go blu-ray hi definition is
always the way to go. It delivers a clearer
sharper picture and is just overall brighter
and more alive.

Blu-ray Special Feautures:

deleted scenes
extended scenes
gag reels
4 behind-the-scene featurettes
commentary Director

Blu-ray and DVD at $24.99 and $19.99 are a
good budget friendly offering. I also feel
this particular movie would make a good dvd to
sock away in your gift giving closet. Many
family's don't always get to buy the newest
films when they first come out so having a few
movies in your gifts closet is an idea way to
always have a great gift idea on hand that
someone will love. Plus dvds and blu-rays are
a gift that never expires and keeps giving
over and over again.

We bought a zoo is a family friendly tale of
rebirth, compassion,love,death,dedication and
hardship. Quite a few lessons can be learned
from this laid back adventure. Mat Damon does
an excellent acting job for his part all the
way around. It's nice to see him a film
where's not all stressed out and running
around frantically. He does a great job of
bringing this story home and making it a good
family movie.

Almost there, can you make sure Swingline Premium Chisel Point Staples links to http://www.shoplet.com/Swingline-S-F-4-Premium-Chisel-Point-210-Count-Full-Strip-Staples/SWI35450/spdv



I'm now an Ambassador for an online
shopping website that I have a lot of respect
for. It's called Shoplet.com
and they carry over 400,000 office and home
supplies. One thing I like about being on the
internet all of the time is the ability to
shop with online partners like this. It's just
so fast and easy to just click it and be done
with it. Gone are the days of standing in line
or even having to drive to the local office
supply store. Around here in Indy they are
kind of hard to find so I enjoy having the
simplicity of looking online for all my needs.
The first products I was sent was this heavy
weighted
Swingline SmartTouch Stapler.
It's received a proud spot on my desk for it's
sleek appearance. They were also sweet and
sent along the
Swingline Premium Chisel Point Staples
to go with it. Having an eBay Powerseller
Store, I find myself using a ton of staples
everyday for my invoices and shipping
purposes. I know staples are such an ugrade
from a common paperclip and I like having them
around the house.
If you haven't shopped at Shoplet before I
noticed they offer free shipping on US orders
of $45.00 which is a huge money saver for your
family. I also saw the neat little tree
updater they have. It says they've saved over
64,000 trees over the years which is quite
impressive a task.
Shoplet offers a wide variety of home and
office products such as; printer paper, office
chairs, cookies & snacks,drinks,staplers,pens
and much more. I saw they even have my
favorite all time cookie's in stock the great
Lorna Doone shortbread cookies in those cute
100 calorie packs which I so love for my
diabetic snacking treats. Have you tried those yet?
Sounds like a great
place to start shopping online to me plus they ship very quickly.
One of these days I'm going to have to get myself a new office
chair for my desk since I broke mine a few months back and am
still using a kitchen chair for a replacement.

(TOOTH FAIRY 2) Blu-ray Review Kids Movie It's Not
Sweet But It Is Kid Friendly



Well the sequel is out if you watched the
2010 original Tooth Fairy which I did not. I
did though receive a blu-ray copy of this 2nd
addition to watch and tell you about.
I'm talking about (Tooth Fairy 2).
It just became available on blu-ray,dvd and digital
recently. I've always been a fan of Larry the
Cable Guy even though his act can be rauchny
at times since it's geared more for the adult
men crowd. It's not something small kids could
normally partake in. Since I had not seen the
first one of this series I was surprised to
see his name associated with it and saying it
was a family type showing. I was intriqued to
watch it and find out.
This second one does stand on it's own so if
you haven't seen the first one it won't
matter. If your children liked the first one
at all they'll like this one as well since
it's basically very similar. My favorite
character from it is the pig who loves her
Moon Pies. That is one smart pig those things
are awesome and so hard to find anymore with
all of the marshmallowy filling inside. Ok
getting back to the story;
I remember first being introduced to this
wonderfully talented character in the former
Blue Collar which I wish was still on. Sure
some of it sucked but the rest was really good
and funny. All of Larry's parts were good
except for the bathroom gags I can do without
those in any time or place. That being said,
here's my thoughts on
this new children's movie.
Tooth Fairy 2 with Larry in a pink tiny tu-tu
is a sight you can't take back- your eyeballs
will never recover so reconsider if your mind
can handle it before you watch this. Yes it's
a tragic site. They could have made him look a
lot better I hate seeing someone just
purposely do terrible work to get a laugh. By
that I mean concepts outside of his range and
area of expertise. The story goes; This Tooth
Fairy has a plan to get his true love back
before she can marry her new finance. It
sounds simple enough but can this large man
pull it off in time?
Larry Guthrie (Larry the Cable Guy) as a well
intending Tooth Fairy who would have thought?
I'm pretty sure the sight of him would be
frightening to most kids.
This long ago love of his life is a school
teacher and when he goes to see her he starts
talking to the kids which is when the story
starts turning against him. He tells a child
that the Tooth Fairy is made up! This
unsuspecting blurb causes a bunch of chain
reactions to happen and poor Larry is left
holding the bag. The greater powers to be give
him a few choices and he has to decide which
route to go. One is to erase his memories
which naturally he doesn't want to happen. The
2nd choice is of course to make him be a Tooth
Fairy and live in someone else's shoes for
awhile. Oh the terrible things that happen
when we tell something we should've have kept
to ourselves.

From Twentieth Century Fox:

"Larry is brought before a 500-year-old Tooth
Fairy stuck in a 10-year-old girl’s body
(played by newcomer Brady Reiter) for
sentencing. The Tooth Fairy demands that Larry
make retribution by temporarily serving as a
Tooth Fairy and proving that Tooth Fairies
really do exist. His mission? Larry must
collect 20 teeth in 20 days. With his orders
in hand, Larry embarks on a journey to prove
the existence of Tooth Fairies and to win back
the love of his life."

So poor Larry the Tooth Fairy! It doesn't
sound like much of a promising career choice
does it? Maybe not, but is when the comedy
begins to unfold in this movie. If your
eyeballs are back in their sockets now from
the tu-tu incident you'll need to watch him
move all around wearing that pink costume. He
really does try to be a good Tooth Fairy since
he doesn't want his fate sealed like that.
There are some humourous scenes and the kids
did laugh out loud a few times while enjoying
this movie. It's certainly a unique
presentation for a main character.

Some of the five mini movies that come
packaged in this movie package are quite good
and could have easily been movies in their own
right. I think your family will really like
the one titled "Why do I love my baby teeth?"
it's some seriously funny stuff.

five Featurettes:
(mini movies)

TOOTH FAIRY 2 Special Features:
1.Why Do I Lose My Baby Teeth?
2.Return to Fairyland – Making Tooth Fairy 2
3.Larry the Hairy Fairy
4.Tooth Fairy 2 introduce Crusher the Pig
5.A Memory to Remember

There are many laughable moments in this
picture so I do think it's ok for a family
viewing session because the kids will like it
as long as they are young enough not to know
too much about the world and how things are
done. Yeah, that's right. It's a flop of a
movie he's just not a pretty sight to watch
dancing around on your screen.
It's not going to win picture of the year or
anything but it's a watcher. Larry was quite
charming even if he was wearing a tu-tu and
I'm glad the kids took to him so easily. I
doubt if he's the kind of Tooth Fairy any of
them will be dreaming about when they tuck
that fallen out tooth under their pillows
though. This is a good story for boys as well
as girls which is always a plus since most
movies are let's face it aimed at the girl
youngsters it seems. So go and pick this up on
blu-ray or dvd and have a few good laughs with
your family at Larry the Cable guy's expense.
Because he really does get-it-done with this
kids movie. Now I'm off to find where to order
some Moon Pies online. That might be the best
thing about this film.
What makes this stand out as a lower budget
film:
poor editing
less design detail
background noises
only closeups are sharp & clear
Well that's just the tip of the iceberg. Like
I said though if your kids liked the first
installment of this franchise, they'll
probably like this one too. The thought of him
creeping into a small child's room creeps me
out.

I've been thinking about this devasting creation of a movie this
afternoon and I've decided what they should have done to make this
a more kid friendly film is this:
They should have had Larry dressed up in a nice suit and looking sharp as a tack and being a good dad. He would have had a little girl sweet and innocent
and he would be training her to take over his job of a tooth fairy.
Now that would have been much better. Now that would have been a
sweet story seeing how the little princess became a Tooth Fairy when
she grew up. This makes you glad you don't have baby teeth
anymore!

Two Alternate Endings

I recently received a screener's dvd
copy of a new film called
(Immortals)
from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment Studios. It's
a story about
One brave warrior who has been touched by the
Gods so he can do what's needed to overcome
all odds to save mankind. This chosen one was
trained specifically by the great and powerful
God Zeus who was always my favorite story
telling character in High School Plays and
classroom theatric's but the film doesn't
focus much on this favorite God. Instead it's
about the War developing because of a greedy
powerful King. This time we are at the mercy
of a powerful tyrant who is a despicable to
say the least.
Immortals is directed by Tarsem Singh and
written by Charles Parlapanides and Vlas
Parlapanides.

Cast Includes:

1.Henry Cavill
2.Luke Evans
3.Kellan Lutz
4.Isabel Lucas
5.Freida Pinto
6.Stephen Dorff
7.John Hurt
8.Mickey Rourke

In this mystical tale of vengeance and
destiny there is a ruthless throne happy King
Hyperion who threatens to destroy humanity
just so he can have the ultimate weapon all to
himself! Yes he's a greedy you know what and
he's the kind of man that leaves a bad taste
in your mouth just from speaking to him. He
plays the role of King very well though so
you'll have to bear with him thru the movie.
So the King of Kings in his mind at least
feels he must bear arms to this most powerful
weapon of the Universe at all costs. The
weapon in question happens to be
the legendary Epirus Bow, the bow so precise
that it can control your fate in the matter of
an instant. The special bow that gives the
power to unleash war on both Heaven and Earth.
Now that is some powerful bow to take out
Heaven and Earth. Men and their power
tools/toys, see it started way back Centuries
ago with greedy monsterous Kings like this.
Enter Theseus (Cavill) into the picture, a
handsome and heroic young common villager
chosen by the Gods of Power themselves.
Theseus is there to stop this scornful King
Hyperion’s wickedness. Luckily he's not alone
in this plight to save the Heaven and Earth's.
He has supernatural help from the heavenly
creature Phaedra (Pinto). Now you've seen a
lot of action but it's about to be quadrupled
when he accepts this challenge from the Gods
and leads the fellow warriors to battle
against the mighty King. So the fighting
begins and seems it will never end with lots
of back and forth victory's for each team of
men. Who will triumph and be victorious? I
won't spoil it for you.

If you're a
design or costume movie buff there are quite a
few special features you'll enjoy seeing. I
just think the overall picture could have been
much better than it is. Near the end there is
a lot of fighting and bloody scenes to keep the guys
occupied, but as far
as the mythological story they don't do much
with i so it falls shortt.

The powerful Zeus trained the lead warrior and
that's about the only part of the film he's
even in. They should have had more elaborate
feasts food and overladen tables for this time
period. It just seems some things are missing
like that. I usually like watching deleted
scenes and finding gems that should have been
included, but not for this one. All of the
deleted scenes were rightly cut and not
missed. One thing this needed was more romance
it's the Greek Gods afterall.

The overall plot is confusing and just doesn't seem to come
together like it should in the wonderful style
of Hollywood cinema. The computer
graphics and beautiful custom costumes are
glorious if you like seeing those.

Product Review Char Crust® Dry-Rub Seasonings Roasted Garlic & Peppercorns Sear It & Seal in the Juices & Flavor


Photos courtesy of Char Rub Dry Rub

Dinner Doesn't Have To Be Boring Chicken Pork or Fish It Can
Sing With Char Rub Dry Seasonings



As you can imagine when you're trying your
best to eat healthier choices every day you
will soon notice a common theme to your food.
It seems to mostly revolve around CHICKEN. Yes
boring old same ole' same ole' chicken.
That's because it's so low in fat and you can
do so many different steps to it to change the
taste and the entire meal. Now you could be
like my friends and just eat the same old
boring chicken every night.

Or you could be
more adventureous in the kitchen like me and seek out some new
and wonderful ways to create your chicken dishes or any
other meats you might like! You know build them up to make them
better than ever before.
One of these way's I've found is using a new
product called
Char Crust® Dry-Rub Seasonings!
The only one I got to try was the Roasted Garlic and Peppercorns
so far, but I was quite impressed with the flavor of it. I
was also pleased with the ease using it since it's already mixed
up for you. It's nice to have a helping hand in the kitchen with
your spice mixture all ready blended up for you. It makes
such a difference in the overall final flavor
of your meal that you won't believe it. It's
not an ingredient created just
for the Pro Chef's either it's designed with
us home cooks in mind and it does a great deal
to make that chicken sing
on your plate. When you have the dry rub on
it seals the meat so the juices stay inside
the meats instead of running out during
cooking. This process of sealing in the juices
is vital in turning a good mela into a greal
meal. I really enjoyed the char broiled taste
it gave my meal and it was easy to use.
They are now used all over the countryto
enhance dishes from beef, pork, chicken and
seafood. I suspect this is the secret
ingredient many of our favorite restaurants
are using to deliver that awesome flavor we
crave and pay top dollar for. Now you can make
it yourself and save a ton of money.
Char Crust.Dry rub seasoning flavor's
include:

1. Hickory
2. Grilled
3. Roasted Garlic Peppercorn
4. Ginger Teriyaki
5. Hickory & Molasses
6. Smoky Spicy Southwest
7. Amazin’ Cajun
8. All American Barbecue
9. Sun Dried Tomato & Garlic
10. Roto Roast

All you do is rub the blends of premium herbs
spices and natural ingredients onto the
surface of uncooked meat or fish and cook it
as you normally would. You can broil it, bake
it, grill it or sear it the choice is up to
you how you want to finish the dish.
Another thing I love about these already
assembled hassle free dry rubs is that they
are low-fat, low-carb so naturally results in
a lower calorie meal. I am always on the look
out for foods that can enhance my meals that
offer zero fat, only one or two carbs and no
more than nine calories when completed. So
it's a win-win for me using these specially
formulated dry rub seasonings. I know you'll
agree that rubbing your food with a dry rub
brings an enormous amount of flavor to your
dinner table. Think barbecued ribs,right?
Well with these spicy rub's you can make every
dish taste better and more inviting. Your
family will be delighted with the new changes
to your same old weeknight dinners.
All Char Crust® rubs are also certified kosher
and each Four ounce packages retails for $5.49
at Char Crust.com.
It's a good value for the
money because you only need to use a tiny bit
to enhance each meal. The four ounce package
is quite a bit of dry rub so it's a multiple
usage product as long as you pour your
designated amount out into a seperate
container and don't contanimate with your raw
meat hands. You know-the standard raw meat
washing hands procedure. These products can
also be found at your local butcher shop
counter and grocery stores nationwide.

From their email:

"The seasonings are also sold to restaurants
primarily through Sysco's ChefEx program.
Chefs at popular restaurants in all 50 states
depend on Char Crust® rubs to prepare
signature menu items."

So if you want great flavor now you know what you need to do. Get
these rubs and try them for yourself. With ten choices you can have a lot
of new tasting dishes to try. Mix up a batch of goodness for your family
and watch that boring chicken go from drab to fab with the help of Char
Rub.

Dvd Blu-ray Review (THE THREE MUSKETEERS) Adventure
2012 Fight Romance Movie



Arrived via New Release on 3D Blu-ray,™ Blu-ray and DVD
March 13, 2012


Summit Entertainment released
(The Three Musketeers)
to the public on 3D
Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD incase you haven't
picked your copy up yet. They are the
ultimate in hero adventures.
From Summit Entertainment:
"Born to be Heroes
Trained to be Warriors
Destined to fight Evil"

The Three Musketeers are played by the trio of
actors;
Logan Lerman, Orlando Bloom and Milla Jovovich
who do a good job of making their character's
believeable on the big screen. They are not
too bad to look at either which is always nice
in a Hero type figure in my Universe.

This is a good adventure for the family with
older kids who like the action and drama with
movies. I know most kids are like me and love
it when there are a ton of special exciting
effects and I can tell you they won't be
disappointed with this showing. It's is
chocked full of powerful awesome effects so
many you won't be able to keep count. The
visual appearance is spectacular with all of
the sets. The main focus of this movie takes
placeacross Europe as the band of heroes go on
a mission once again to save both their King
and country. With their favorite phrase in
tow; “All for one and one for All."
No matter which format you watch this magical
movie on since it comes on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray
and DVD as well you will see countess special
features and loads of fighting scenes.
Special Features:
audio commentary (director)
deleted scenes
extended scenes
cast experiences
crew stories
special 17th century action featurette which
is a movie in itself
I saw this on blu-ray and it has it's own
unique exclusive special features which makes
the film even better. There is a special
addition for the viewers of blu-ray called
Access: Three Musketeers whichallows you to
explore and enjoy insider information with
behind-the-scenes trivia and interviews as you
watch the film. It was really sweet and
brought a whole new World of dimension and
enjoyment to the movie. I would highly
recommend you getting this on the blu-ray
format so you can have the Access to see it
all.
Summit
Entertainment
is a Lionsgate® company and
knows a lot about what needs to be involved
for making a great movie. This picture has
everything in place to make it a colossal
adventure that your family will like.

Of the countless adaptations of Alexandre
Dumas's 1844 story of The Three Musketeers
this one may be the winner for the largest
budget used to make it. They really did go completely
hog wild out on the sets and costumes to make them feel
authentically real. Plus the panaroma view of this is
exquisitely captured, it's a real gem in the beauty department.
It's also the first 3D version of the story ever told so if you
have a 3d capable television set,lucky you and you can enjoy it
even more. I'm still crossing my fingers for Christmas for a 3d
tv set to fly into my home. I keep telling Santa I've been good
but I don't think he's paying attention to us older folks anymore.
.
The British gain a real technological
advantage thanks to flying boats constructed
in one of the movie's historical moments from
stolen Leonardo Da Vinci plans. I wish they
would have included more scenes like this one
it would have helped the picture even more. That
was some truly fascinating stuff in those few scenes.

Some of the scenes and sets seemed to be so
like the Pirates of the Carribean series at
times that it was hard to stay focused on this
particular movie. I found myself looking for
the guys from that franchise to pop up at any
given moment in time and steal the show away.
Not that you can blame them for trying to recreate
some more movie magic from something that worked
so well over the years.

The fair maiden Jovovich has several elaborate
action sequences which will remind you of her
time in her Resident Evil adventure. She has a
lot of fast paced action which will keep the
guys and young men on board the ship for the
duration. She might be the best thing going
for this film with her dazzling beauty and
graceful charm as you takes down the villans.
Needless to say if there are any future
maidens in distree watching, they for sure
will want to be just like her when they grow
up. This time her fights to the almost death
stage are using slow motion movie making techniques
and fancy gymnastic trick's all
over the place. Very cool to watch for everyone
who loves to see action on the lady's side of things.
These stunts take place in Pierre Yves
Gayraud's extravagantly elegant true to the period
costumes a sheer beauty to see. That's the best part about
this film for me is seeing all the original looking
clothing and accessorcies they found to use in it.
The costumes are dead on correct
for the period and you will enjoy seeing all
of the real beauty behind these elaborate
outfits.

D'Artagnan's romance with the supposed little Dam'sel
in distress
Constance, (Gabriella Wilde) is a nice romantic young
feeling love story which I liked. It had the old fashioned
charm you would expect in ancient Europe during the period.

In final thoughts I want to say I personally was a little
sad about the ending. They do leave a few things open I guess
incase of a sequel to the movie. I would have liked to have
seen more about what happens so I'm sure we'll be able to in
the future. Timeless story's never go away you know because
there are too many of us romantics at heart.

Have You Tried Any New Foods? Recipe Beefy Meatballs Using Gluten Free Breads

Have You Tried Any New Foods for 2012? Diabetic Friendly
Recipe Beefy Meatballs Using Gluten Free Breads



Look Again, It's Gluten Free!

I really enjoy cooking and baking every single
day so it was nice when I got a chance to go
gluten free with
Udi's and see how
I liked it. I am
always cooking up American inspired dishes as
I'm just a basic meat and potatoes gal at
heart so I decided to go with a big sub
sandwich done gluten free.
When Udi’s Gluten Free Bakery told me about
their "Look Again It’s Gluten Free"
Recipe Contest I was intrigued. You can enter their
fun contest yourself at the link above and I invite you
to do so. What they wanted is
for me to make a gluten free recipe for my
family that still tasted so good that I could
fool my family into thinking it wasn't any
different than the recipes I normally fix for
them.
Udi's
Gluten Free.com

Diabetic Friendly Healthy Meatball Dinner Recipe

Beefy Substyle Meatballs

2 pounds ground beef
1 tsp dried parsley falkes
1 whole white onion diced food processor
1 tsp granulated garlic
6 slices Gluten Free Whole Grain or Whole
Wheat Breads
2 eggs & 1 egg white
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (the real
stuff)
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 cup diced tomatoes drained
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp oregano
3 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup 2% milk for soaking bread

Cookie sheet
Whole Wheat Buns

Tear up & soak bread in milk; squeeze out
extra milk liquid when ready to mix
Combine into a large mixing bowl all of the
beef & other ingredients (except buns) and mix
with clean hands. How easy is that? Form your
meat into ball size shapes and place an inch
apart on your cookie sheet. Bake the pan of
meatballs in a 350 degree oven about 25
minutes or until done in the center. Now they
are ready for your sauce and to enjoy. They
were easy to fix too since you didn't have to
stand at the stove and keep turning them over
and over. I like letting the oven do all of
the hard labor for me.

Now that your meatballs are finsihed baking
you can add them to a toasted bun with
mozzarella cheese and have yourself a hearty
wholesome meatball sandwich. Be sure you use
Udi's gluten free buns for toasting up so
you'll have a completely gluten free meal.
Take extra meatballs and freeze them on a
cookie sheet for 1 hour. Then place them in a
large ziploc type bag and freeze them. They
won't clump up together and you'll be able to
grab a meatball anytime you have the
handkering for a meatball sandwich or a
spaghetti and meatballs dinner for the entire
family. Use whole wheat pasta's and it will be
a healthy meal to boot. Lower sugar pasta
sauces are best to use or even yet make your
own fresh tomato sauce. You'd be surprised at
just how few ingredients it really takes to
make a marvelous pasta sauce.
I do eat gluten free foods often since with
type 2 diabetes it's also something that is
beneficial to do for myself. I don’t have a
gluten intolerance or celiac disease but I
can't really taste a difference in the final
products so why not use them and make yourself
feel better overall? It's small steps like
this can make you go from being a diabetic
suffering with swollen tender soreness in your
feet to feeling good like I do. The swelling
is caused by the extra carbohydrates in the
diet not just sweets so eating less gluten
will help you in your daily goal to live a
healthier life. It's an added bonus when you
can do without the pain in your feet.

I have always loved to try new foods and new
recipes which is one reason why I blog in the
first place. I like to write reviews for foods
and household items after I've tried and
tested them out. It's my way of sampling new
foods that I might not have normally purchased
and opening up my budget. All of these goodie
boxes in the mail add up to quite a difference
to my family's budget every month. You should
try some new foods and products that are
available for yourself. You night find you
have found something new that you love too.
Your health and the health of your family is
important so eating better choices like whole
grains are good for us all whether you are a
diabetic or not. Be sure you check out their great contest and
natural food products.

Just this week I had the pleasure of trying a new

great tasting orange beverages. This new addition to
the family has no artificial sweeteners involved in it's making,
which is important to diabetics like myself. All natural food

Well it turns out it's also best for everyone even
healthy folks. This new Trop50 Red-Orange
flavor can be found in the chilled beverages aisle and
I really believe it's worth taking a look at. They
sent me free coupons and I loved
the flavor of it. You will not be able to tell that
it's lower in calories! I like that when something taste
delicious and is also low calorie. It's the best of both
Worlds.

before so I was really glad to try it out. I had been seeing
them all over Food Network in some of my favorite cooking
shows on television. So it was just a matter of time until I
would try it out.

(The Descendants) Now
Available on Blu-ray & Dvd Review Movie Spectacular Hawaii & Charming
George Clooney What Else Does A Girl Need?



A new movie with my favorite Actor of all
time came out just a few days ago and you have got
to get it and watch it as soon as you possibly can!
It's with the hunky charmer,
George Clooney who sways womens hearts everywhere even
mine. The movie is
The Descendants
where he plays Matt King an Hawaii
Real Estate Lawyer who has no clue as to how
to dress for success which is the complete
opposite of himself.
We've all watched the charming Mr. Clooney on
various occasions and he's always dressed at
the top of his class, heck he is the meaning
of the word "Class."

So you have to forget who
he is when you're getting ready to watch this
film. I know it's hard to do but be strong and
you can do it. This movie is about how your life
can change in the matter of a few seconds.
When his wife, Elizabeth ends up in
a coma after a water-skiing boating accident, he must learn to
balance the parenting of his two girl's all by
himself something of which he knows nothing about.

As his wife's condition continues to
take a turn for the worse he contacts friends
and relatives like her father so that they'll
have the chance to say goodbye to her. It's
some really good acting on all parts during
this time period since everyone is really
sincere. In the process of all this sadness and
heartache that he can hardly bear he somehow
learns that she was having an affair with
another guy! Then the table's turn and the World
starts to spin around out of control.

I didn't know this was going to happen when I
first started watching the film either so I was
equally as shocked as the character was. To
think he is in such a state of devastation for
someone who cheated on him is just mind
blowing to accept. It would certainly change
your perspective on EVERYTHING and pretty
quickly too.
To run away from this truth he takes his two
girl's on an island trip where he also invites
his wife's love interest. This is where it
gets kind of weird as you're trying to imagine
what could be running thru Matt's head? Is he
wanting to wisk him away so he can kill him or
what? He's thinking he just needs to see what
she saw in this guy but who knows what can
happen. If it were me I'd say kill him dead on
the spot and go back and finish off his now
insignificant other too but hey I'm evil.
Now I don't care how disarrayed and untidy
they had him looking for this movie, I then
developed an instant distaste and hatred for
his wife who I've been feeling sorry for. I
hate being tricked and lied to just like
everyone else in the world does so I can feel
his pain. I mean come on - George Clooney! No
one would cheat on him - EVER! He's the
sexiest man alive for God's sake! Ok, sorry I
had to get that off my chest.
So back to the movie, once he stopped being so
naive and found out about everything he
sharpened up really fast and put it all into
the proper perspective. This brings out
Clooney's best work yet and he's a guy who has
had a lot of great work to stand up to. It's a
really good movie and I would have watched it
anyway even if it was a total flop just to see
what he's doing. Lucky for me and for you it's
not a flop and there are some good scenes
and a lot of heartfelt sympathetic times
abound in this dvd.

I just told you about the side story of this
feature. The real story is actually about
wealth and power play in the Real Estate
World. It seems he is a descendant afterall so
there is a totally different story associated
with that aspect of his life. Plus this is a
guy who always worked hard for a living and of
course did that at the expense of being with
his children as they grew up. So now it's time
to pay the piper as my grandma would say. So
several good stories inside this one
tremendous film. It's by far the best movie
I've watched this year and I've watched quite
a few already. Not that I had any doubts about
it being so good with George Clooney involved.
Be sure you see it it's a great one already
being nominated and winning Awards. Here's the

list of just the nominations it's received:

Best Picture
Best Actor
Best Director
Best Film Editing
Best Writing Adapted Screenplay

I watched this on blu-ray and the video and
audio were superbly well crafted and marvelous
to be a part of such a spectacular presentation
in a movie. I hope someday to make it
to Hawaii because the photography on this
blu-ray is so awesome you won't
beleive there was any place on Earth that
gorgeous. It really has me wanting to go and
even brave another airplane ride which I swore
never to do again. What I would need is to
have George Clooney on the same plane. That
would give me so much to think about that I
wouldn't be able to have a panic attack just
from being on a silly airplane. I probably
wouldn't even know I was on one I'd be so
excited.

Tons of deleted scenes to
go along with this great picture. Here's
the big list of stuff you'll want to watch at
least part of since you know who is in it.
