[twitter]I may have lost our family’s version of Iron Chef twice, but I have always loved cooking. When it comes to recipes, I ad lib and substitute and make things up as I go along.
And now, I am a bona fide food blogger!!
I’ll be sharing recipes, contests, product reviews, and more. Each month a little care package box lands on my doorstep, and I get to review some of the products inside. Here’s what was in my September box:
Old El Paso Chicken Tinga Kit
I was so excited to try the new Old El Paso Restaurante taco kits. I already had a box in the cupboard to break out for the next Taco Tuesday, and that just happened to be on Monday night.
I made the Chicken Tinga tacos, which is dead easy. A cup of water, the spice packet, some sliced onion, and your chicken breasts. You simmer/poach the chicken for about 15 minutes, then pull it apart with forks. You mix the meat back in with the sauce, and then serve!
I made a little side of shredded lettuce, diced tomato, cilantro, and lime juice to garnish the tacos and it was perfect.
Multi-Grain Cheerios with Ancient Grains
Remember when you were a kid and you’d mix the remnants from each cereal box into your bowl? Multi-Grain Cheerios + Ancient Grains reminds me of that. It’s classic Cheerios, mixed with some corn, cinnamon, puffed spelt and puffed kamut.
This is my new favorite box of Cheerios. It’s got a variety of tastes, textures, and is just sweet enough to make me smile.
Fibre 1 Delight
I’m trying to stick to having many small meals throughout the day to keep my engine fired and drop some weight. That means every 2 or 3 hours, I have to have something to eat. So that’s breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner. It sounds like a lot, but if you keep the portions proper, and have extra fibre and protein throughout the day, you stay full and burn your fuel more efficiently.
The Fibre 1 Delight bars have been my go to after work / after picking up the kids from school snack this week. It’s just enough to calm my hangry attitude as I get dinner ready for the kids. It’s just 90 calories, and has 20% of my daily fibre to fill me up. And who doesnt like having an afternoon cookie?! Win!
Thanks to Life Made Delicious for inviting me to be on board with the team this year. I look forward to sharing more recipes, products, and reviews!
