Review: DRY Soda Co.

About them:
"Seattle based DRY Soda Co. has re-imagined what soda can be: better tasting and better for you. DRY Soda uses only four natural ingredients and keeps the pure cane sugar to a minimum. Each twelve-ounce bottle of DRY contains just 45-70 calories and 11-19 grams of sugar. The result is a less sweet soda that allows its fruit, flower and herbal flavors to shine through."

My Thoughts:
When I first received my DRY soda i thought "Well this is just going to be a another bland soda, that tastes like carbonated water" Man was I wrong! Each sip I took was full of robust flavor!  DRY Soda has seven distinct flavors: Lavender, Lemongrass, Vanilla Bean, Blood Orange, Rhubarb, Juniper Berry and Cucumber. My favorite was Blood Orange and my husbands was the Vanilla Bean. Each beautiful glass bottle of DRY Soda was very refreshing and light. I loved the fact that each soda has between 45-70 calories! All the ingredients used (and there are only four) are all natural. Finally I found a soda that tastes great and not filled with chemicals and mountains of sugar!  I have tired a lot of other natural flavored soda/water and DRY Soda is by far my favorite!

My Thoughts:
I decided to review the Nordic Ware Pro Cast 12 inch Saute Skillet. Let me tell you, this pan is awesome! Its large enough to sear large cuts of meats and fish without being overcrowded. The pan can be used under high heat with out warping. Its great for sauteing and i use it pretty much everyday. From cooking eggs, to sauteing onions, to braising meats. I also cover the handle with some foil and stick it in the oven if I'm making a skillet casserole. I love that this skillet it can be used on both the stove top and oven. It is definitely a must have in the kitchen.
