Oodles of Noodles

My life is busy, and I'm sure many readers can echo the same sentiment. The last thing I want to do at 2040 hours (8:40 pm for my non-military time readers) is cook dinner.  I do *LOVE* cooking, but not at that hour!  What to do?  Well in my case I turned to a Smithfield recipe.

Product testing -video!

I was recently asked if I would be interested in product testing a garlic peeler.  I naturally said yes as I have never used one, electing to often use my garlic press which peels the garlic in one step.  
There are often recipes which call for sliced garlic, which renders using a garlic press useless.  In a case where peeled garlic is a must, it would be a handy gadget to own. 
This video is a first for me, so I hope you enjoy!


Pros: Silicone; cleans easily; bright color makes it easy to find; 
Cons: If the garlic is too small it will fall through (this video didn't show it, but yes I experienced this -different video!) Sometimes the garlic doesn't peel on the first try.

Rating: 4 stars

Toss the Blue Box!

August has been a busier month than usual.  I had not one product sponsor I was working with, but I eagerly volunteered to work with Barilla Pronto Pasta!  What's not to love about pasta?!  It is a good, healthy carb and who doesn't love the cheesy goodness that often accompanies pasta, especially when it's Macaroni and Cheese!!!

Simply Swansons

Life has been BUSY lately! My day starts out at 0530...and I usually am not home until 2100. Given my busy schedule I'm appreciative of food that's fast..please note I did NOT say "fast food".

Shout out to Smithfield/Farmland!

Yes, I know! I haven't posted a blog in about four months.  Quite simple really - combine working adult, college student, college finals, two out of state trips, not being assigned any campaigns recently and moving...I'm sure you can understand why there have been no posts lately.
NOTE: If my blog posts seem to go back in time, there is a strong chance of this occurring only b/c I have SO much AMAZING news to share!!!!
