Simplisafe Wireless Home Security Review

Simple to install and very easy to use, Simplisafe is a great home alarm system which is monitored by a security firm that can call out the police on your behalf.
Should I Buy The Simplisafe Wireless Home Security System?
The Simplisafe system couldn’t be easier to self-install, but it does require a monthly subscription which could put some people off. We’d like the option of an external siren, but other than that, it’s a comprehensive smart security system.

Sausage Balls


Sausage Balls are a family favorite breakfast during the colder months. They are easy to make and taste wonderful when served with honey, maple syrup, or mustard.

Sausage Ball Traditions
When I was a girl, it was a family tradition to eat Sausage Balls on Christmas morning. I’ve continued this tradition with my own family and it’s one that we really love and look forward to every year.

This Sausage Balls recipe is perfect for Christmas morning because you can make the sausage balls in advance and freeze them until it’s time to bake. This means less work for you on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning.

You don’t have to wait until Christmas to enjoy these sausage balls though. I keep some frozen Sausage Balls in my freezer during the winter months and just pop a few into the oven whenever we need a quick breakfast.

A Food Processor Makes It Easy
When I make up a batch of Sausage Balls, I like to save time by using my food processor. I have a Ninja food processor that is no longer available for purchase, but this one is similar.

In my Ninja food processor, it’s much easier to blend up half the ingredients at one time. I put in 1/2 pound of sausage and 1/2 pound of Velveeta then blend until just barely combined. Then I add in 3/4 cup of Bisquick and pulse it a few times to mix it in.

Careful – Don’t Over-mix the Dough
Make sure you don’t over-mix the dough. You don’t want the dough to be completely smooth and uniform. You want it all just barely combined. It’s perfect if you can still see patches of cheese and sausage.ee

If you mix the dough too much, the sausage balls tend to be tough and a bit rubbery in texture.

If you don’t have a food processor, you can combine the sausage, Velveeta, and Bisquick by hand in a large bowl. I’d suggest combining the sausage with the cheese then adding the Bisquick last.

Now We’re Rocking and Rolling
Once the dough has been combined, start rolling them into walnut-sized balls. Again, the Sausage Balls don’t have to be completely smooth and uniform. I like to make the sausage balls walnut-sized so that you can get 2 or maybe 3 bites out of each Sausage Ball.

You can make the Sausage Balls smaller if you’d prefer. Just reduce the cooking time by a few minutes so that they don’t get overdone and dried out.

How to Freeze Sausage Balls
To freeze Sausage Balls, just place the uncooked Sausage Balls onto a freezer-safe tray that has been covered with wax paper then place it in the freezer for 1-2 hours until firm.

My sheet pans do not fit into my freezer so I have to get creative and come up with another plan. Sometimes I use a freezer-safe 13X9 inch pan. I’ve also used a cutting board. Really, anything you have that is flat and will fit in your freezer is perfect.

Once the Sausage Balls are firm, you can transfer them to a zip-top storage bag for longer-term freezer storage. Since they were firmed up on a tray before being put into the bag, they will not stick together.

You do not have to thaw the frozen Sausage Balls before baking. Just take out as many Sausage Balls as you need and bake according to recipe directions. You might need to add an extra 2-3 minutes to the bake time.

What To Dip ‘Em In
When I was growing up, we always dipped our Sausage Balls in honey. My sister-in-law always dipped hers in mustard. Maple syrup is another great dip possibility. And what about grape jelly? That sounds really delicious.

WD My Cloud Mirror 4TB Review

If you’re looking for a home storage solution but can’t be bothered sourcing and installing your own disks then the WD My Cloud Mirror is an attractive option at a good price. WD My Cloud Mirror 4TB review.
Should I Buy The WD My Cloud Mirror 4TB?
When it comes to ease of use the WE My Cloud Mirror is hard to beat. Initial setup is very easy and even sorting our remote access is simple too. For sharing music, movies, photos and documents it works a treat and performance is fine. The downside is that you don’t get the huge range of apps that are available for other brands. However, if you prioritise ease of set up and ease of use the WD is worth looking at and with 4 TB of storage included for the price, it’s a great value option.

Should I buy the Drobo 5N2?
It might be relatively expensive, but the flexible RAID system that can handle multiple drives of different size could be a major cost saving for many users. The performance, build quality and expanding app selection also makes the Drobo 5N2 a highly desirable solution.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390) Review: Hands-on

The redesigned XPS 13 2-in-1 is finally good enough to really rival Dell's traditional laptops - find out what we thought when it launched at Computex 2019.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390)?
We won't know just how well the new 10nm Intel chips perform until we get the XPS 13 2-in-1 into the office for a proper review, but on paper this looks like a very capable machine. Strong specs combined with the best of Dell's already strong XPS design language mean that not only does this look like a good convertible, it might even dethrone its clamshell cousin from the top of the laptop world.
