Chef Boyardee Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is shelly aka allysmama. Congrats!

Did you know that Chef Boyardee has new whole grain products and a new website they have just launched called Club Mum?  I didn’t either till recently.

Lead by a panel of four mom bloggers and launched by Chef Boyardee, Club Mum is a new online community for moms to share experiences, ideas and tips around how to get the “good stuff” in their kids. The website will include editorial and video content on a broad range of topics, such as getting more vegetables into kids’ diets, keeping kids active during winter weather, packing nutritious lunches and encouraging philanthropy among the whole family.

Their new whole grain product launch goes hand in hand with this.    Now, I already loved that a can of Chef Boyardee counts as a serving of vegetables.  However, the whole grain aspect just makes it all the better.  I recently tried the Whole Grain Lasagna.  I’ll be honest — I couldn’t tell the difference between the whole grain and the regular lasagna.  They tasted exactly the same!  If you like Chef Boyardee products, you will love their new whole grain products.

Since my family and I enjoyed these so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to win a Chef Boyardee Prize Pack.  In it is a lunch box and 3 of the Chef Boyardee products!  Here’s what you need to do:

Betty Crocker Potato Buds Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Pamela S. Congrats!

Whether you prefer your mashed potatoes topped with butter, sour cream or cheese, the Betty Crocker Potato Buds that you’ve come to know and love has a new and improved taste that is sure to please even your pickiest eaters. And ready in just five minutes, they’re perfect for busy weeknights and last minute dinner ideas!  I like real mashed potatoes just as much as the next person, but with two little ones (and a puppy), I just don’t have the time nor the patience to make them.

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you’ll remember a few of my recipes that use mashed potatoes: Cheeseburger Mashed Potato Bake, Italian Style Meatloaf, and Italian Sausage Mashed Potato Pie.  Betty Crocker Potato Buds would work perfect in all three of these recipes.  Betty Crocker has a few of their own recipes that this can be used in too including Beef Pot Pie with Potato Biscuit Crust and Italian Hamburger Deep Dish.

Did you know that Betty Crocker Potato Buds are gluten-free?  If you are looking for some gluten-free recipes, make sure you check out Potato-Crusted Salmon and Cheesy Broccoli-Potato Soup!

Since my family has enjoyed this so much, I’ve arrange for one lucky reader to get a Betty Crocker Potato Buds prize pack.  The prize pack  includes a box of Betty Crocker Potato Buds, a serving bowl, a trivet and a serving spoon.  Who couldn’t use that?  For those who don’t win, I have a 55 cent off coupon you can download, so you can try these yourself!  Here’s what you need to enter:

Tell me what you would use the Betty Crocker Potato Buds for?  A side dish?  Do you have a favorite recipe that calls for mashed potatoes?  Did you find something on the Betty Crocker website that you want to try these with?
