Sausage and Pepper Cheese Burger #NewTraDish @RaguSauce @Ragu

DSCN1680DONE

Sausage and Pepper Cheese Burger We have been in the 70's this week here in Colorado. I love this weather because as the days warm up we are able to grill more and more often. Recently Ragú sent me a couple product coupons for their Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce and with those coupons I was trying to come up with a great recipe that would allow me to grill. That is why I came up with this Sausage and Peppers Cheese Burger! I have always loved Sweet Italian Sausage with grilled peppers and onions but I had never thought to use sausage as a patty on a burger. I ran this idea past my husband and he was just as thrilled as I was. We could not wait to see how well the sausage would grill up and how these Sausage and Pepper Cheese Burgers would taste. Ingredients: 2 lbs Sweet Italian Sausage 3 Bell Peppers sliced 1 large onion sliced Ragú Old World Style Traditional Sauce Hamburger Buns Sliced Mozzarella Cheese 2 Tbs butter salt & pepper … [Read more...]

However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way.

100_3205done

 ** I was sent a Laptop Lunches Bento-Ware for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way.   Laptop Lunches Bento-Ware! I have been focusing recently on eating healthier. This includes what I send to school with my daughter in her lunch. When I go shopping my main goal has been to shop the outskirts of the store. You know what I mean....only produce, meat and dairy. It has been hard to adjust to this new routine as I was used to hitting the aisles and purchasing lots of high calorie items with too many additives to even count. I know that when I was shopping like that I was making life easier for myself. But, in the long run it would have made things much harder on my daughter. One thing I quickly noticed with my new shopping habits was that it is harder to package items that are not prepackaged. I was using up SO MANY throwaway bags and this did not sit well with me. I did not like to see all the trash that I had to use to … [Read more...]

** I was sent a product for the purpose of this PB Crave Review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. PB Crave - Great for Kids Snacks and Lunches! We eat a lot of peanut butter in my house. This is for a number of reasons. #1 - I can a lot of jelly throughout the year. #2 - It is easy to make and pack for school lunches. #3 - It's a great source of protein. Although we eat a lot of peanut butter in our home my family has been complaining recently that they are tired of the same old peanut butter taste. I know they love peanut butter...but after eating it daily for weeks I can see how it got a little old....but, that was only until they tried PB Crave! Recently I was sent some awesome PB Crave flavors for the purpose of this review; Choco Choco, Coco Bananas, Cookie Nookie and Razzle Dazzle! I was so happy to introduce these flavors to my family.

IMG_20130729_154547_112

Bart's Cookies! I was beyond excited when I received some delicious cookies from Bart's Cookies to review! Of course so were my kids and husband too!   I have to be honest, I make the worst chocolate chip cookies. Trust me, it's not that I haven't tried. I absolutely love to bake, I love to try new things and have had a great time baking cakes for family and friends but when it comes to cookies, more specifically chocolate chip cookies, something happens and the oven spits back out flat melted slightly burnt around the edge cookies that the dog even takes a second to sniff. I don't know if I will ever have the energy to keep trying but when we got Bart's Cookies my kids were overjoyed to taste an edible cookie!   I absolutely LOVE dark chocolate and was excited to try the dark chocolate chip cookie. Since I can't ever execute a good standard chocolate chip cookie I was expecting this to be close to my mother-in-law's chocolate chip cookie which is honestly out of … [Read more...]

  My Thoughts on Totino's Pizzeria Rolls! I remember rushing home from school growing up. I could not wait to get home to have my after school snack of Totino's Pizza Rolls! They were my favorite after school snack. I have not had Totino's Pizza Rolls since I was a child in school but recently I was given the opportunity to try them out again. This time in their three new Pizzeria flavors! Totino's New Pizzeria flavors include Cheesy Garlic, Chicken Parmesan and Meatball Marinara. I was so excited to give these a try and I rushed to the store to check them out. To my dismay there was only one flavor at my store as these are so hugely popular that the others were sold out. But, I was able to try the Cheesy Garlic. My family decided to share them as a snack to see what we thought. The first bite we popped into our mouths without any dipping sauce. I must say they were very garlicky and my husband compared the filling to melted garlic butter. Not to say that they … [Read more...]
