What’s Your FlavorPrint?

Sometimes, someone who thinks they know what they like (umm, me) finds out that believe it or not, there’s a whole new world of things they like as well.

Things that may have seemed unusual for them.

Things that just didn’t seem to make sense that a FORMULA – a computer program- could possibly know.

But someone found out otherwise.

I was asked by my friends at One2One to check out the new McCormick FlavorPrint site, take a flavor profile quiz, and then try out a few recipes based on what the site recommended for my proposed flavor profile.

I was hesitant, but hey, like I said, it was friends, so why not?

I did.

I created my login and password on the McCormick site, then answered a few simple questions.  The website was super easy, fun, and strangely enough, nailed me spot on, even with questions I thought made no real sense!  From there, it recommended a few recipes, and all of them really did sound like things I would honestly want to make.  Simple recipes, quick and easy, but with flavor pairings I may not have considered on my own.

Based on my FlavorPrint , I wasn’t surprised at all to see these particular flavors rising to the top.  But that the site had me pegged so well was kind of amazing!  I do love chocolate, cheese, and vanilla, and so many of the recipes containing onions/garlic.  They KNEW me!

I tried 3 different recipes – Oven Roasted Red Potatoes, Ginger Glazed Carrots, and a Barbeque Chicken Pizza.  All were great, and all fit my FlavorPrint.

Let’s start with the potatoes.  The profile said these were a 99% match for me.  Garlic & onion notes (of course!) and only 3 real ingredients. Great for us!  The prep was simple, and took no time at all.  I did throw in a few chopped onions, and that was a nice little addition. Great side dish!

The carrots I knew I would love as well.  We are a carrot family, and ginger is a spice we can’t get enough of.  Again, easy prep, and they went well with the potatoes, believe it or not.  Any protein would have been great, like chicken or steak, but I went with pork, and it was amazing.  I’d serve these flavorful carrots time and again.

Finally, the BBQ Chicken Pizza.  What’s not to love?  Pizza is good. BBQ Chicken? Also good.  We had this going in no time at all. using some of our homemade pizza dough.  The seasoning was full of punch, and all of us enjoyed it.  A nice change from the typical mozzarella and pepperoni pizza!

What exactly is McCormick’s FlavorPrint?

It’s a site I’ve now been back on multiple times, because it offers so many great options that fit me and my family, but finally get me thinking a little outside of the box and mixing things up!  You should give it a try!

McCormick® & Company, a global leader in flavor, has been driving innovation in the kitchen for 125 years with products that make life taste delicious. Now its new FlavorPrint recipe recommendations, which offer personalized recipe suggestions tailored to an individual’s flavor profile, is set to revolutionize the way people plan, shop, cook and eat – making it easier to put something on the table that the whole family will enjoy. Because flavor is at the heart of every meal, FlavorPrint recommendations are powered by the flavors you love. The recommendations also consider foods you might be trying to avoid, specific dietary preferences, how you like to cook and ingredients you typically have in your cabinets.  
How It Works  
Each person has a unique flavor “fingerprint” that is conveyed through a distinct visual mark, which has 33 “spikes” to represent different flavors in your personal flavor profile. The bigger the spike, the more prominent the flavor. The service compares each person’s FlavorPrint mark with thousands of ingredients, recipes and products – each with its own FlavorPrint mark – and recommends the best matches. 
In less than two minutes, you can find your unique FlavorPrint mark by answering a series of questions about flavor preferences. Like other expert online services that offer personalized music and media recommendations, the more you share through recipe interactions or refining your profile, like cooking styles and ingredients and equipment you typically have on hand, the smarter your recommendations become – so you can look less and cook more. Get started today at www.McCormick.com/FlavorPrint – your personal recipe recommendations await.

Yasso Greek Frozen Yogurt Bars…and a Giveaway!

 

Last week I got to have a little bit of fun with friends and family, courtesy of Yasso.  A party, with lots of food and frozen yogurt pops?  And MY crazy family?

yasso

Sign me up.

I love the fact that as a blogger I am encouraged to try new and different products.  Usually I will get a sample or two – enough to share with Jon and Seven – but occassionally, I am even luckier!  Trying out and sharing the experience with the people in my life that I can’t get enough of is a true bonus.  My family, for example?

Nuts.

I mean, look at my cousins here.  Is this a normal way to behave, when you are asked to show off how you feel about a dessert on a stick?

Okay, don’t answer that.  Maybe your friends are as silly as mine.

We all shared a few boxes of the new Yasso Greek Frozen Yogurt Bars, in a couple of flavors…Chocolate Fudge and Coconut.  Overall, we all agreed the Coconut was our favorite, though the fudge was really good.  There was just something so summery and smooth about the coconut.  Since the party, I’ve heard from my sister-in-law that the salted caramel flavor is to die for…and I trust her opinion.  It will definitely be the next flavor I try, though if I can find it, the raspberry sounds so delicious! (And Blueberry! Mint Chocolate? Yum.)

Product Review…New Finish Dishwashing Detergent With Less Harsh Chemicals

 

As one of the lucky Finish Mom Ambassadors, I was lucky enough to have Finish Dishwashing ask me to try their new “less harsh chemical” line of dishwashing detergents.  They are Finish® Power & Free™ and Jet-Dry® Power & Free™.  Developed with little ones in mind (less harsh on their pacifiers, sippy cups, bottles – you know, those items that you find under the couch? These products were just itching to be created.

Finish uses hydrogen peroxide action in the Power & Free™ line, and I was more than impressed with the cleaning quality without using some bizarre chemical.  Seven is six years old now, so I am less fussy about detergents, but when he was a baby, I hand washed everything.  Had this been available THEN, you can bet I would have used it!

Honestly, I wasn’t sure I would be impressed with the cleaning quality, and I certainly didn’t expect it to be better than the original formula.  I should have known better.  If you are a Finish user already, but are looking for something new and improved, with less harsh chemicals to worry about – THIS is it.  They are even winning awards with their Power & Free™ detergents … no small feat!

Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal

Take for example, the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, which is a HIGE accolade.  They’ve also picked up, the Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal, and the 2014 Product of the Year USA award.  In addition, lots of your favorite brands are recommending Finish® Power & Free™ as well, like NUK-USA.

Need to try it yourself?  Finish® is giving away free samples of their Power & Free™ detergent!  Go here to sign up for your FREE sample.  You can also pick up some Finish® and Jet-Dry® coupons here!

Also, you should visit their Facebook page here for updates, coupons, and specials.  For even more, you can find them on YouTube here.

Blueberry Banana Smoothie…and it’s Earth Month!

Did you know it’s Earth Month?

Did you even know there IS an Earth Month?  I mean, yeah, I think we all know there is an Earth Day, but I wasn’t aware we had an entire month devoted to the cause.  I found out just recently, when approached by the folks at Silk (I know! They keep talking to me, hopefully because they love me as much as I love them!) to let you all in on a campaign they are working on.

It’s not about getting you to drink all Silk All The Time.

Although I do, or so it seems.  I can’t get enough of the stuff.

But that’s beside the point.

What I learned THIS time, is that Silk is doing more than their fair share to help keep not just ME healthy, but our PLANET healthy.  Silk loves water and is committed to conserving this natural resource everyday. In fact, drinking Silk not only provides delicious, plant-based nourishment, but also conserves water because producing Silk saves 500 gallons of water per half gallon over conventional dairy milk.  (Don’t ask me how this works…but wow!)

Silk realizes that conserving water is everyone’s responsibility and Earth Month is a timely reminder that we can all do our part. So, on April 4, Silk launched a series of short, animated videos designed to celebrate, inspire and educate people about the importance of water. On that note, Silk is partnering with The Nature Conservancy to help advance water conservation efforts across the U.S. For every “share” of one of Silk’s Earth Month videos, Silk will donate $1 to The Nature Conservancy (up to $20,000).

What does that mean for ME and YOU!  It means SHARE!  Share the link to the videos, everyone gets a better planet.  So easy.  Plus, if you’ll share, you’ll be entered to win a prize pack HERE just for sharing!

Silk also invites consumers to share their fun and nostalgic water-filled moments using the #yaywater hashtag for the chance to win one of 200 indoor or outdoor eco-friendly prize packs or one of five grand prizes.  We all like to win stuff. I know you do.


So… how can we save water ourselves?

Lots of ways.

The most important way, and easiest?

Just be MINDFUL.  Really, to me, that’s the answer to a lot of problems, conservation-wise, friend-wise, family-wise, work-wise, LIFE-wise.  Think.  Think before you DO.

For example:

Brushing teeth:  Do you really need to run the water the entire time you are brushing your teeth?  No.  So turn it off.  Just rinse at the end – that saves more than you realize.  And heck, why not turn nightly brushing into a family routine? All brush together!  Just in my family of 3, if we brushed together, only rinsing once done, we could save our household usage by over a thousand gallons of water in a year.

Showering:  We all love long, hot, showers.  I know. I do too.  But shortening your shower by even two minutes saves 18 liters PER SHOWER.  So, let me tell you what I’ve been doing.  Music.  Instead of just showering for 10-12 minutes, I plug in my iPhone, and sync it to my shower Bluetooth speaker.  2 of my favorite songs later (not admitting the two, sorry), and I am out.  That knocks anywhere from 3-5 minutes off of a shower.  Good stuff, right?

Doing Dishes:  Instead of filling up your entire sink with water, use a large plastic bowl or tub in the sink and fill it instead.  Still gets the job done, and saves more water than you may think!

Of course, if you are so minded, you could install a low-flow toilet, a more efficient dishwasher or washing machine, and reduced water shower heads.  All great ideas.  But the ones above require NO handiwork.  Just a little thought, and we should all have time and energy for that.

Now…onto that Smoothie.

Because I learned about the whole saving of water by using Silk versus milk, I subbed Silk in to one of my favorite smoothies, and it turned out so much better than imagined.

Blueberries.  Bananas.  Blueberry Banana Smoothies.

It’s one of Seven’s favorite combinations, and I’m just pleased I can make something yummy (and healthy!) in one single contraption.  A recipe with ONE step?  Sold.

Hope you are too!

blueberry-banana-smoothie

 

Blueberry Banana Smoothie

  • 1 banana
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup Silk Vanilla Almondmilk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup ice

Combine all ingredients in a blender; blend until smooth.

 

Now, about that giveaway!  As I mentioned, if you will Share the link to the videos, I will enter you for a giveaway.  Should be super easy!  Just leave a comment, letting me know where you shared (Facebook or Twittter) and voila – you are entered to win a conservation kit of your own!  Good luck!

Silk wants you to help us celebrate water! Every time you share one of Silk’s water conservation videos, Silk will donate $1 to The Nature Conservancy (up to $20,000) to help with water conservation efforts.

I was compensated for this post but the views and opinions expressed in this post are solely mine. WhiteWave is providing the prizes for this program at no cost to me. This giveaway is not administered by WhiteWave or its affiliates, but solely by myself.

Not this time.

Roast Beef, Mozzarella,and Ranch Mayo Sandwich

I was recently approached by Hidden Valley Ranch (the ONLY Ranch in my opinion) to come up with a simple use for one of their many products. I’ve done several recipes for them in the past, including a reverse take on the classic chicken wing, but this time, I thought…why overthink it?

Sometimes it’s the simplest things – like a sandwich – that make the best meals. This sandwich, this roast beef, and mozzarella sandwich topped with a Ranch Mayo is about the best thing I’ve had on a bread. The devil is in the details here, it’s all about the quality of the ingredients you use.

rb3

I started with thickly sliced deli roast beef – nice and pink. My favorite is Boar’s Head, and while it is a little pricy, it really is delicious. I also used fresh mozzarella. Sure, you could make it yourself, but if you have access to a good grocery, you can pick up mozzarella sealed in water, like Bel Gioioso. Trust me, you don’t really want to use the hard brick mozzarella here. I also used the bottled Hickory Bacon and Onion Hidden Valley Ranch to amp up my mayonnaise, which added a great deal of flavor, and really complimented the roast beef. I piled on fresh arugula, and of course, used a fresh French baguette, with a thin layer of butter spread on each piece. Yum. You really can’t beat this delectable sandwich…it’s hearty, full of flavor, and makes a delicious dinner or lunch. Give it a try – I doubt you’ll look at a pricy restaurant sandwich quite the same again…you can make it exponentially better yourself at home.

Roast Beef, Mozzarella, & Ranch Mayo Baguette Sandwiches

makes 4 large sandwiches

  • 1 bakery “Take & Bake” style French loaf, 22-24 inches long
  • 1 pound deli thick sliced roast beef
  • 8 slices fresh mozzarella
  • butter, melted
  • 1 tomato, sliced (I used roma)
  • 1 handful arugula
  • Spiced mayo (recipe to follow)

Preheat oven to 350. Cut the loaf into four 6 inch lengths. Halve each piece lengthwise, and spread with melted butter on each of the cut sides. lay open faced on a baking sheet. Top the four bottom halves with equal amounts of the roast beef and two slices of mozzarella. Bake for 5-7 minutes, or until mozzarella is melted. Once melted, remove from oven and top with tomato, arugula, cilantro, and Ranch mayo. Serve and enjoy!

Hidden Valley Ranch Mayonnaise

Getting in Shape and Dressing the Part…an Albion Fit Giveaway

 

I  mentioned a week or two ago that I have started a new diet and exercise plan.  So far, so good – I am sticking with classes and with my new trainer, I am watching the calories and carbs, I am drinking more water, and I am seeing the difference in the way my clothes fit.

That was the goal.  Feel better, look better.

One thing I didn’t really think about though, was what to wear while exercising.  The thing is, with a class full of women, it’s important (is it just me?) to look good.  Look like you belong.  Look like you can sweat for an hour straight without dying.

I don’t have the right clothes for that.

Or rather, I didn’t.

Thankfully, I was approached by Albion Fit, who offered to suit me up in some awesome workout gear.

The Petal Pant-Black/Sweet Stripe

Yes, I have purchased things from department stores, and they are a little less expensive, so, I will be honest…I was skeptical at first of the clothes and pricing at Albion Fit.  I’m a frugal chick, so, I am always wary.

One wear and I know it is worth every penny.

Charade Rashguard

Albion’s mission is to provide WOMEN with the most luxurious, flattering, and hassle-free  FITNESS AND LEISURE apparel on the market.  They are family owned.  They believe in quality, fair practices, green living.  And did I say quality?

The quality is exceptional.  The seams are tight, perfectly stitched, stretchable, breathable, and cute as heck.  You can feel the difference – these clothes will stand up to any abuse you throw at them.

Like I said, worth it.

One thing I can’t believe is this – and you won’t believe me either…the pants.  The Go Long Leggings in black.

These pants are somehow slimming, despite being form fitting.  For some reason (magic? voodoo?) they hug me, and keep my tummy tight, and yet there is no dreaded muffin top.  Where does the belly GO?  I can’t tell you.  But I would consider wearing these bad boys to the grocery store if I didn’t stick to the mantra that Tights Are Not Pants.  Leggings Are Not Pants.

Not. pants.

I am also thrilled with the jacket – how cute is this style called the Sweet Stripe Full Zip?  The ruffles dress up the standard hoodie, and who doesn’t love a hoodie?  I’ve been asked in class if I get hot, and the truth is – NO.  Like I mentioned, these clothes are very breathable, and I don’t get any hotter than if I were wearing a tee shirt.  As I don’t like to bear my arms yet (that day is coming, I’m working the triceps!) I prefer wearing a jacket right now, and this jacket is my favorite by far.  But Albion has lots of great ones to choose from!

Once my arms are where I want them to be – this shirt, The Tiebreaker,  is coming home with me.  it is MINE.  The ties are such a neat detail, and I can’t wait to wear it!

Tiebreaker Top

This top is also great – called the Love Racer – love the piping on it!  So much fun, and really flattering!

Love Racer, Silver

A Shiny, Happy, Giveaway

 

I’ve been saving something special, you guys.

In just a few short weeks, it will be Mother’s Day, and I don’t know about you, but I have the hardest time picking out something for my own mom.  I also have no idea what I might want for myself, if, umm, someone were to buy me a Mother’s Day gift.

I’m here to help you with that.  I know what you want.  I know what your mom wants.

One of these.

fruit-bowl

I never knew I was a fancy dish lover.  And then Beatriz Ball  sent me one of these beauties, the VENTO Oval Deep Fruit Bowl, and ever since, I am obsessed.  I’ve even purchased more for my own collection, because it’s just so stinking gorgeous.

In addition to the beautiful designs, all of the pieces are:

 

  •      Made of eco-friendly, 100% recycled aluminum.
  •      Easy care, never tarnish, never polish!
  •      Chill or warm foods up to 350 degrees.

The designs are all incredible – I adore this collection above, called Vento – but I am also obsessed with the Forest collection.  The ice bucket looks like a silvery, perfect tree stump, doesn’t it?  I think I need ALL of the pieces in this series for my new Tree Cottage we are building.  Don’t you?  A sweet cottage with pewter tree art lining the kitchen walls?  So what it’s impractical for a vacation cottage in the woods?  It’s lovely, and that’s what I want!

What do YOU want?

You want to win that little pretty up there for you or your Mom?  You should.  And here’s how to do it.

Leave me a comment here, letting me know you’d like to have it.  Do that, and you’re entered to win.

Butternut Squash & Caramelized Onion Popovers with Goat Cheese Crumble

Yes, yes, I know.  This sounds way fussier than I typically am.  Butternut Squash & Caramelized Popovers sound like something on a menu somewhere.  Somewhere…fancy.

And yet here we are.

butternut-popover

Why the change?

Well, because sometimes, I just like to throw you a little curveball and see what happens.

Kidding!

Really, these popovers aren’t fussy at all, in fact, they take no longer to whip up than any of my other 547 popover recipes.  A little caramelized onion, your basic, non-sweet popover batter, and something new – Veggie Blend Ins Butternut Squash puree.

I was sent this new product (along with their carrot and spinach varieties), and asked to sneak it in to a recipe.  You know, to add some veggies in places we don’t typically see them, so that we get our fair share of the good stuff without even realizing it.

Popovers are one of our staples here in my house, sweet or savory, so I decided I’d give the butternut squash a go in a batch one afternoon.  Paired with sweet, caramelized onions and a topping of goat cheese crumbles, this is one savory popover that really packs the flavor.  And so, so easy.  The packets of pureed veggies are small enough to be convenient, and large enough to make a great add-in to so many things.  Like mac & cheese, for example.  Or pasta sauce.  Or brownies?  Yep, even brownies.  Veggie Blend Ins teamed up with cookbook author Jessica Seinfeld to develop a bunch of clever recipes using the purees, so, if you’ve got a picky eater that turns their nose up at anything vegetable related, this is a great way to slip some in on him.  Who can turn down a brownie or mac & cheese?

NO. BODY.  That’s who.

Until then, here are the popovers…Give them a try!

veggie-blend-in-popover

Butternut Squash & Caramelized Onion Popovers with Goat Cheese Crumble

makes 12

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup Butternut Squash puree (I used Veggie Blend Ins)
  • 1 small sweet onion, diced and caramelized
  • Crumbled Goat Cheese or Feta, to top

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Prepare a large, evenly divide the butter into a 12 cup Mini-Popover Pan. Place the pan in the oven for 3 minutes to melt the butter. Remove when melted. Spray each vessel with cooking spray to prevent any sticking.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the milk. Add in the flour, salt and puree, stir to combine. Fold in the caramelized onions. Pour batter evenly into the popover pans. (I poured mine almost to the top of each vessel.)
  3. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350. Bake an additional 20-25 minutes, or until all are puffed and golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven, top with Goat Cheese or Feta, serve and enjoy!

Veggie Blend Ins

Do you have trouble getting your family to eat more veggies?  Luckily, I don’t, but you can NEVER have too many!  I’m really impressed with the quality, flavor, packaging sizes – just all around convenience…I can see us using these in so many ways!

You can purchase Veggie Blend Ins here.

  • Contains 9 puree pouches – 3 carrot pouches, 3 spinach pouches and 3 butternut squash pouches
  • 100% vegetable puree, just one ingredient
  • No additives or preservatives
  • Easily add veggies into your favorite meals, snacks, smoothies and desserts
  • Blends right in so your favorite foods still taste delicious

Have a great Sunday!
