(Save with a NewAir Coupon!) The NewAir Chest Freezer (NFT070GA00) is Perfect for the Holiday Season + 20 Holiday Treats that are Easy to Freeze!

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are honest and our own.

The holidays are just around the corner! This is a great time of year to bake and freeze your favorite foods for the holiday season. In today's post, I'm excited to tell you about the NewAir Chest Freezer (NFT070GA00), share 20 of our favorite holiday treats that are easy to freeze, and share a coupon for 10% off of the NewAir Chest Freezer!

The NewAir Chest Freezer (NFT070GA00) is one of the best chest freezers on the market and currently has a highly coveted 4.9/5.0 star rating on sites such as Home Depot and NewAir! Prior to my unit arriving, I was excited because many customers rave about their purchase and have incredible comments about the quality and value. Let's start with a quick overview of the product:

"Whether you're looking to stockpile meals or just want to know you'll never run out of party snacks, the right chest freezer will help you stay prepared for anything the world throws at you. The NewAir 6.7 Cu. Ft. Compact Chest Freezer provides everything you need to keep your family well fed. Digital temperature controls let you set the thermostat to your exact needs for grocery store staples or specialty items from hunting and fishing trips. Smart features like Fast Freeze Mode and a door alarm make this compact yet spacious chest freezer the perfect addition to any home."

Some of the popular highlights that make the NewAir Chest Freezer (NFT070GA00) stand out include:

1. Precise Digital Temperature Controls

The NewAir 7.0 Cu. Ft. Compact Chest Freezer puts you in control of food preservation with an easy-to-use digital thermostat. With a range of 50° F for cellaring all the way down to -14.8° F for a deep freeze, you can choose the optimal temperature for frozen meats, veggies, prepared foods and more. No need for trial and error with an old-fashioned dial — just type in your temp and go

2. Fast Freeze Mode

Counting on a deep freezer to keep foods fresh longer? With Fast Freeze Mode, you can reduce the time it takes to get your foodstuffs to a safe storage temperature. Fast Freeze Mode injects extra-cold air to flash-freeze room-temperature foods, avoiding large ice crystals and freezer burn. This setting is perfect for hunters, fishermen, and homesteaders putting up frozen fruit and veggies for the winter — and for suburban families, too

3. Door Alarm for Extra Protection

If you've ever lost a freezer full of food, you know just how expensive — and heartbreaking — it can be. That's why the NewAir Top Open Freezer features a door alarm to prevent accidental losses and help you keep cold air in where it belongs. It's perfect for peace of mind.

4. Compact Freezer, Big Benefits

With 6.7 cubic feet of storage space, this compact chest freezer fits anywhere while still providing ample room for extra food. It's also packed with smart features like a wire basket to keep things organized and an LED light to help you find things fast. The top-open door features a stopper hinge to hold the lid open at several angles. Something amiss? Run the self-diagnose program to find and solve issues right away — no user's manual required.

In addition to the highlighted features above, the NewAir designers seem to have real life experience and thought a lot about the needs of families. They even thought about things that could potentially go wrong. I've tried a few NewAir products and have noticed that their products are user friendly.  They know that people want to get started quickly. The manuals that I've read have always been easy and concise to read. Even better is that the products have intuitive designs.  Everything went smoothly for us  with this chest freezer! While I haven't had problems with any of our NewAir products, I like knowing that this chest freezer comes with a self-diagnose program to try to help users who are frustrated when something goes wrong.  

Let's start from the beginning.  Our NewAir Chest Freezer (NFT070GA00) arrived at our doorstep by FedEx. As expected, the box was quite large since it is a 6.7 cu. ft. chest freezer.  My husband used his dolly to transport it from our front porch to the garage and unpacked it without any problems.  The packaging was great - the freezer made it from California to Texas in perfect condition without any dents or scratches.  Here is a photo after we removed it from the box.

The compact design includes an interior wire basket for easy organization. This is great for families that want easy access to their most frequently used items. 

When I researched chest freezers, I read that some brands offer interior wire basket and this is important for optimizing the space in a chest freezer. 

Now that we have this unit, I realize the value of this advice!  It's especially great for store more frequently accessed items or fragile items that you don't want anything to potentially crush.

The door alarm is a family friendly feature that helps to prevent accidental loss of valuable food items. I also love that it has a nice light that helps when we need to organize and search for items.

Every once in a while, you may want to empty, defrost, and clean the unit.  There is a user friendly drain. For instance, the photo below shows the plug on the inside. It's designed to make it easy for you to drain and place a pan underneath to catch liquid.

There is also a practical feature with a self-diagnose program to help troubleshoot issues on the spot. Again, the designers of this chest freezer seemed to think of everything. I'm sure that users are frustrated when something goes wrong. This extra help could go a long way!

Now that I've shared highlights, let me share 20 of our favorite holiday treats that are easy to freeze and store in this chest freezer! Personally, one of my favorite hobbies includes baking.  The cooler weather and holiday season gives me an excuse to enjoy baking my favorite recipes. Thanks to the NewAir Chest Freezer (NFT070GA00), I'm able to bake ahead of the holidays, freeze treats, and then share them when opportunities arise throughout the holiday season!

(Win it!) Nothing is Impossible on Pure Flix #NothingIsImpossibleMIN #MomentumInfluencerNetwork

Many thanks to Pure Flix for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.

In today's post, I am excited to tell you about a fantastic movie - Nothing Is Impossible!  This movie premieres exclusively on Pure Flix starting October 6th! This is a movie about how to trust in God’s timing when it seems like none of our desires are being fulfilled in the way we hoped. It teaches us that times of uncertainty are when we should lean into our faith and trust God has a plan for our lives. It provides a reminder that our past failures don’t define us. Instead, our reactions to past hurts can transform us. The movie emphasizes the importance of forgiving ourselves and forgiving others for past mistakes.

Here is a quick overview:

"Take a center-court seat to a journey of transformation as Scott Beck gets a second chance at life and love. Can he let go of past pains and open himself to God’s purpose? Or will new challenges keep him from the future he always hoped for?"

Check out the trailer here:

Nothing Is Impossible has an all-star cast:

  • David A.R. White, Scott Beck (“Love on the Rock,” “God’s Not Dead,” “Revelation Road”)
  • Nadia Bjorlin, Ryan Aikens (“Days of Our Lives”)
  • Harry Lennix, Coach Russell Banks (“The Blacklist,” “Justice League,” “Transformers,” “Batman v. Superman”)
  • Steven Bauer, Archie Touraine (“Love on the Rock,” “Better Call Saul”)
  • Robert Amaya, Nick Carter (“An Unlikely Angel,” “The Farmer and the Belle,” “God’s Compass,” “War Room,” “Mom’s Night Out”)
  • Mark Christopher Lawrence, Pastor Lawrence (“Family Camp”)
  • Stella Parton, Ruby (singer and songwriter, younger sister of Dolly Parton)
  • Leanne Crawford
  • Ethan White (“Me Again”)
  • Marcus Haislip (former NBA player)
  • Vincent De Paul, Coach Hamilton ("TESLA," "Gods Not Dead: We the People," "Love on the Rock,” “Madam Secretary")
This movie arrived with great timing as we have a wonderful child that is fabulous at many things, but just like others his age, sometimes struggles with the need to "win" at any cost and doesn't always accept that sometimes setbacks actually strengthen us and to not be so hard on himself or others. We aren’t promised an easy life, free from trouble, failure or worry – we’re promised that we have God to lean on when troubles arise – our sufferings aren’t meaningless. God is faithful – He’s still working on each of us and we have to be open to the possibilities God has in store for us. This movie gives encouragement to step back and look at the bigger picture of how life's ups and downs shape us. It so important to push past the down times and focus on pushing forward to being stronger for life experiences even if we don't always understand them.

There is a good bible quote that is reflected in this movie:
  • Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26 (NIV)
This movie gives a reminder to keep trying and that God has a plan for us. It's a family friendly movie that we enjoyed! We hope that you will have the opportunity to enjoy it too!

Get Ready for the Holidays with the NewAir Nugget Ice Maker (NIM030SS00) + Try our 2022 Holiday Cocktail and Holiday Mocktail Recipes that use Sonic Style Ice Made with a Nugget Ice Machine!

It may be 90+ degrees right now, but the holiday season in just around the corner! Thanksgiving is 62 days away. Christmas is 93 days away. New Year's Eve is 99 days away! Now that the pandemic has would down, it's time to catch up on holiday gatherings. In today's post, I'll tell you about why we love the NewAir Nugget Ice Maker (NIM030SS00) for holiday parties. Every year, we create a fun holiday cocktail for our family and friends that visit us. Everyone looks forward to finding out our annual holiday cocktail. Our 2022 Holiday Cocktail is -- the Cranberry Kiss Cocktail with Nugget Ice! Our 2022 Holiday Mocktail is -- the Sparkly Cranberry Mocktail with Nugget Ice! The secret to this recipe is to serve it frosty cold and generously packed with nugget ice!

Let's start with the NewAir Nugget Ice Maker (NIM030SS00). We love this ice maker year-round since we live in Texas and cold drinks are important. It's also great for holiday gatherings. Here is a quick product overview:
"When is an ice maker more than just an appliance? When it provides an endless supply of the perfectly chewable ice that you thought you could only find at Sonic and Chick-fil-A! The Newair Countertop Nugget Ice Maker makes a non-stop supply of the good ice that you crave: clean, pure, and perfectly shaped for crunching on when your drink is gone. Enjoy the convenience of nugget ice in your own home with this feature-packed ice maker that puts an end to refilling ice cube trays for good."

Here is a quick list of key features:

  • Enjoy restaurant-quality, addictively chewable nugget ice in your own home.
  • Self-cleaning function keeps out impurities and improves ice flavor.
  • Automatic water line and refillable water tank provide options for clean water sources.
  • Fast freezing produces 9 fresh pieces of nugget ice every 10 minutes.
  • Compact, ergonomic design fits easily on any kitchen countertop.
Our NewAir Nugget Ice Maker (NIM030SS00) arrived quickly by FedEx.  We carried it in from our doorstep and found the experience to be user-friendly.  We removed it from the box, read the instructions, and were able to get easily get started. That's something that I've loved about all of our NewAir products.  Their team not only focuses on creating top quality products, but they also seem to invest time into making sure that users have a great experience with their products.  It's easy to notice that the designers are perfectionists that think about every detail because they truly seem to focus on making products that are easy to use from start to end!

We didn't need any special tools or anything since we used the option to pour water into the reservoir for our ice.  There is also a very cool option to hook it up directly to a waterline which is super convenient!

Our ice making experience was quick! We had nugget ice shortly after adding water and turn it on!  The ice hopper continued to fill every ten minutes with more ice nuggets!  If you are a fan of nugget ice at restaurants, you'll love the ice nuggets.  The ice nuggets remind me of Sonic or Chick-fil-A ice.  If you live in Texas, you may know that many people are obsessed with Sonic's nugget ice.  Some people will go to Sonic solely for the purpose to get the nugget ice!  It's really cool to be able to make our own ice like this at home! (Pun intended - it's the coolest!)

Another great thing that I found about this product is that it's easy to clean! I was worried about it being a moldy mess in between uses. However, it's very easy to clean and allow to dry.  Prior to receiving this nugget ice maker, I read many reviews and noticed another customer commenting on this same feature.  After my NewAir Nugget Ice Maker (NIM030SS00) arrived and I had a chance to use it, I found that I agreed with their comment about it being easy to clean.

The NewAir Nugget Ice Maker (NIM030SS00) was just as amazing as I expected.  One thing that I didn't expect is that friends love having nugget ice when they visit!  I even made some ziploc freezer bags filled with nugget ice for a few friends who were genuinely thrilled to learn that it's possible to make nugget ice at home.  It's fun to share!  The ice maker works quickly and requires very little effort on my part, so I'm always happy to share with those who love this special ice!

As you may have guessed, the NewAir Nugget Ice Maker (NIM030SS00) inspired my holiday cocktail and mocktail recipes for this year!   If you follow regularly, you may know that I create a fun holiday cocktail every year for our guests that visit us throughout the holiday season. This year's drink is inspired by our new nugget ice maker.  That is, the Cranberry Kiss Cocktail with Nugget Ice for adults and Sparkly Cranberry Holiday Mocktail with Nugget Ice for kids!

Recipe: Cranberry Kiss Holiday Cocktail with Nugget Ice

1. Fill the glass completely with nugget ice.

2. Add 6 ounces of your favorite cranberry juice.

3. Add 1 shot of your favorite vodka.

4. Garnish with lime.

5. Enjoy!

While I shared my Holiday Cocktail recipe, I didn't forget about those who prefer nonalcoholic drinks! We pour juice and sparkling water over the nugget ice and garnish with fresh fruit!  It gives a nice ombre pattern. My kids love the bubbles too.

Recipe: Sparkly Cranberry Holiday Mocktail with Nugget Ice
  • Nugget ice (to completely fill the glass that you use)
  • 3 ounces of cranberry juice
  • 3 ounce of sparkling water.
