Pam’s Pantry

I have two words for you:  Easy.  Yummy.  Seriously, if want some of the easiest dips, dressings, and spreads to make, head over to Pam’s Pantry.  You know your dip is going to be good when it smells yummy before you even open the package.  I have been able to try their strawberries ‘n cream, cheesy garlic, spinach surprise, and our favorite sweet ‘n sassy salsa.  These dips are super easy to make.  You just need a cup of mayo and a cup of sour cream.  That is it!  Now, the strawberries and cream is slightly more complicated – you have to mike the cream cheese and you need cool whip.  Seriously, not to difficult at all.  On the back of each packet, it tells you what ingredients you need, how to make, and what would go best with each one.  They also have Cheesecake Mixes, Bar-B-Q’s and Picklers.   What I love best about these is that they taste great and can be made in no time at all!  Since these are made from fresh ingredients, you can even claim these awesome dips as your own!  🙂

Wolferman’s French Toast Rounds

This easy to make recipe is take off of our well known french toasts. However, if you are looking for something a little different, definitely try out these french toast rounds.

I recommend using Wolferman’s English Muffins for this recipe for several reasons.  First, I love the size of them.  That is literally the first thing you will notice.  If you are like me, you are buying whatever is cheaper at the store.  However, cheap does not equal same quality.  Wolferman’s English Muffins are double the size of what I normally buy.  I also noticed right away that I didn’t have to slice these open.  With little ones, I try to use knives the least amount as possible.  These you just have to gently pull them apart.  These are super yummy too.  I cannot believe the taste difference.  When you open the bag, you immediately can smell the flavor.  The cinnamon and raison english muffins is one of the best scents.  Another favorite flavor for our house was the Apple Orchards (I liked the scent of this one too).  If you need english muffins, I highly recommend Wolferman’s.  Without further ado, here is the recipe:

4 Wolferman’s 1910 Original Signature English Muffins (you could also use the Honey & Oats, Cinnamon & Raisin, and Cranberry English Muffins)
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon until well blended. Heat a lightly oiled griddle to medium/hot. Dip both sides of the muffin halves into the egg mixture. Place slices on heated griddle. Cook until golden brown on both sides.

Both my kids and I liked this (hubby missed it due to being at the Chicago Bears game).  Let me know if you have a great french toast recipe I should try on our next bag of English muffins.

Pizza Hut’s Tuscani Pasta – Premium Bacon Mac ‘n Cheese Giveaway!

I love Pizza Hut.  When I heard they were coming out with the Premium Bacon Mac ‘n Cheese Tuscani Pasta, I knew we had to try it. This did not disappoint.  The rotini pasta is covered with an awesome chedder cheese sauce.  That is then topped with more cheese and bacon.  An order of the Premium Bacon Mac ‘n Cheese is about 3 pounds and should feed a family of four.  It also comes with 5 breadsticks.  This dinner is quite affordable too — it is only $12.99!  Everyone at my house truly like it.  I like how cheesy it was, my husband loved the bacon topping, Will (my one year old) could actually feed this to himself, and Madison (my four year old) just thought the whole thing was “super yummy in my tummy”.

Interested in trying this at your house?  I have been the opportunity to give not one, not two, but 3 certificates to my readers to try the Premium Bacon Mac ‘n Cheese Tuscani Pasta.  What do you have to do to win this?
