Ninja Cooking System Giveaway (and Happy Ninjember!)

Thursday, November 1st, 2012 by Stephanie O'Dea


This contest is now over, and the winner has been notified.  Thank you to all who entered. More Ninjas are on the way — but in the mean time, keep an eye on the storefront; we’re about to have a new offer available! :-) happy slow cooking! steph



I had the grand idea of posting daily recipes in October in honor of Crocktober the way I’ve done in the past, but failed miserably. So since we’re in a brand new month, I’ve decided we need to rename November to NINJEMBER. (insert HI- YAH noise and karate chop) (wait, is that insensitive to Ninjas?) (if, so, disregard.)

I’m probably still not going to post daily recipes because let’s face it —- just how many variations of beef stew can I possibly come up with? But! I’ve got a brand new Ninja Cooking System for you today. I’ll keep this contest running for a good two weeks, and will close it on Wednesday, November 14th at 8pm pacific.

The Ninja Cooking System rocks. You can read my entire review, here, and you can buy it here, with a whole lot of extras you can’t find in the store. If you haven’t been able to catch the whole infomercial, that’s okay, because they now have it uploaded on You Tube and you can see me in all my acting glory. :-)


I still really, really like this product, and I am sure you will, too.

here are some other Ninja Cooking System reviews that you might like to check out:

Happy Ninjember! :-)
