POM Wonderful Recipes & Cocktails #CookwithPom #ad 

27 Oct

Pomegranate season is in full effect and POM Wonderful and Momtrends invited me to a hands on cooking experience to make and try delicious recipes made with fresh pomegranate arils and juice. I headed to the Miette Culinary Studio to cook with professional chefs. Looking for new recipes for the holidays? 

Have you ever had Guacamole or Moroccan Shrimp with POM POMS Fresh Arils? What about Whole Wheat Waffles with POM POMS or Roasted Salmon with POM POMS Salsa? How heavenly do they sound? I even had a drink called the Dapper Devil. This drink contained Pomegranate Wonderful 100% juice, Aviation Gin, Club Soda, Fresh Gin and a twist of lime. Great for any party or celebration. 

I even made a smoothie with POM Wonderful juice and it was amazing. Take your favorite fruit and POM Wonderful juice, Ice and I also used tropical coconut water. Blend well then serve. 

The Guacamole station was calling my name and I really wanted to know how Pomegranate would be incorporated into guacamole. It was so easy, tasted great and brightened it up. The recipes are below. Give them a try and discover what POM can do for you.

NEW Del Monte Adult Fruit Cups (Fruit Refreshers) #TimeToRefresh

1 Aug

Del Monte introduced a new product at their NYC launch at the Gramercy Park Hotel rooftop July 28th and I was invited to see it all go down. The only thing I knew was it was their first ever Adult Fruit Cup. So what makes it an adult fruit cup you might ask? Well if you’re thinking its infused with liquor you’re wrong. Or maybe you’re an alcoholic who was praying you finally got your wish. JUST KIDDING!!!! 

I couldn’t wait to find out. Once I saw the fruit cups the first thing I noticed was the packaging which looks very grown up compared to the fruit cups in kids lunchboxes. The colors of the fruit are bold and bright and I love it! The amazing flavors was the next thing I noticed. My favorite was Pineapple in Passion Fruit flavored lightly sweetened with Fruit Water. I am a huge fan of pineapple and the passion fruit is also very delicious. I love the fact that it’s packed in fruit water. Another plus I noticed was it does not have any High Fructose Corn Syrup, Artificial Flavors or Sweeteners. If you’re around me I’m always talking about how I can’t stand high fructose corn syrup and if one of the first three ingredients in any product is sugar put it back. That goes for high fructose corn syrup too. 

The third thing I noticed was it only has 90 calories. Can you say winner? My family has always been big on fruit cups but a lot of them were flavored in heavy syrup and that wasn’t what I wanted.

These Del Monte Fruit Refreshers fruit cups already have me hooked. Another flavor introduced at the launch was Mandarin Oranges in slightly sweetened Coconut Water. Yes, that’s right Coconut Water. This flavor only have 100 calories. Another winner. 

Two more flavors coming to stores are Red Grapefruit in Guava Flavored Fruit Water and Grapefruit and Oranges in Pomegranate Flavored Fruit Water. 

Spokesperson for Del Monte Fruit Refreshers, Actress and Lifestyle Blogger, Katrina Bowden was in attendance to tell us why she supports Del Monte. “She said as a healthy person who stays fit she likes snacks that she can throw in her bag everyday to enjoy whenever she needs a moment to refresh.”

I love the adult size of these fruit cups and I can’t wait to try all the flavors. Speaking of flavors we had some pretty good refreshing drinks and amazing seafood appetizers and desserts. I felt like I was at a party Under The Sea visiting Spongebob’s pineapple house. Facials were also given if you chose to get one. 

Keep checking your local supermarkets. Hitting shelves soon. Check out @delmonte on Instagram and Twitter for more info. 

Thank you for the invite. I had a great time.

Tessemae’s All Natural Line Of Organic Salad Dressings #BlogginMamas

16 Jun

I’ve always loved all types of salads and having a good salad dressing just puts the icing on the cake. What I tried to deny to myself was even though I’m eating a healthy salad I knew once I added that creamy dressing it wasn’t as healthy as it should be. 

What I started doing was reading labels. I looked for hidden ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, xanthan gum, how much sodium, calories and cholesterol was inside and lots of ingredients I couldn’t pronounce. I stopped supporting bad habits and decided to either make my own dressing or find a healthy one just right for me and my family. 

I took my kids to the Kids Food Festival in Bryant Park a few years ago and at one of the booths there were two guys (brothers) who were sharing their heathy organic ketchup and organic mustard with the kids. The name of the company was Tessemae. I purchased a few bottles and from then on they have been on the top of my shopping list. 

It doesn’t stop there though. They also have salad dressings, marinades, BBQ sauce, dips and mayonnaise. 

Tessemae’s All Nat­ural is a grow­ing nat­ural food com­pany from Annapo­lis Mary­land that makes clean, fresh dress­ings, mari­nades, and condi­ments with real ingre­di­ents and no preser­v­a­tives.

Tessemae’s All-Nat­ural makes 25 mari­nades and condi­ments – all of which are USDA organic, gluten free, non-gmo, vegan and Whole30 approved – and con­tain no added sugar or xan­tham gum… ever!

The Vet­ter broth­ers, Greg, Brian, and Matt, launched the brand in 2009 at their local Whole Foods Mar­ket in Annapo­lis, Mary­land, using a sim­ple recipe cre­ated and used by their mom through­out their child­hood. Tessemae’s com­mit­ment to healthy eat­ing and liv­ing is the core of their mis­sion, to pro­vide sim­ple, yet deli­cious food to con­sumers made with real ingre­di­ents.

I love their products and was given four bottles of Tessemae’s All Natural Organic salad dressing to review. The flavors were: Lemon Garlic, Balsamic, Honey Balsamic & Green Goddess. Don’t they just sound devine? It can be used as a salad dressing or marinade. The first one I tried on my salad was Honey Balsamic. I absolutely loved it because I mean come on, how can you resist anything with honey? I also love balsamic so the two together just made me want it even more. It tasted clean and fresh and my salad wasn’t weighed down nor soggy. All natural and my stomach thanked me. My doctor also thanked me. 

I’m definitely going to marinate my chicken with a few as well like the Lemon Garlic and Green Goddess. I  recently purchased the Southwest Ranch. Loved it! Amazing things can happen with Tessemae. 

Tessemae’s All Natural products are sold at Target, Stop & Shop and Whole Foods in the Northeast.

Olive Garden’s Never Ending Family Table Kicks Off At Highline In NYC 

6 Jun

Olive Garden Unveils New Breadstick Sandwiches and Deep Dish Spaghetti Pies.

Summer Sampling Tour Gives Families and Friends Nationwide Opportunity to Gather Around the Table. Last summer, America fell in love with Breadstick Sandwiches when they debuted in restaurants and on food trucks touring the country. Inspired by fans’ excitement and passion, Olive Garden is hitting the road again helping guests across the country create summer memories. The Olive Garden Never Ending Family Table will cross the nation to give fans the opportunity to gather together and sample the new menu items. 

Olive Garden is doubling its offering of Breadstick Sandwiches and bringing new twists on an Italian classic. Beginning this week, iconic Olive Garden menu items will transform with new varieties of the legendary Breadstick Sandwiches and brand new Deep Dish Spaghetti Pies. To celebrate, Olive Garden is giving unique and customized opportunities for families to come together around the table.

This first-of-its-kind summer-long celebration kicks off in New York City where the table will grow along the High Line. From there, the two versions of the Never Ending Family Table will continue across the country delighting guests with the new food. One will have a planned route through a new city every week. The second is dedicated to surprising guests and will continuously pop up at summer celebrations, such as birthdays, family reunions and graduation parties. To submit your summer celebration story and to learn more about the mobile tour, visit All summer, guests will be selected to receive customized Olive Garden dining experiences at the Never Ending Family Table or in restaurants.

I was invited June 2nd to the High Line for the kick off and sat at the family table where I  had great conversation, met lots of people and tried out delicious new items on the menu. Thousands of people showed their support and love of The Olive Garden. 

Available for lunch, the new Breadstick Sandwiches joining the popular Chicken Parmigiana and Italian Meatball Breadstick Sandwiches are:

**Spicy Calabrian Chicken Breadstick Sandwich: Lightly breaded chicken, fried and tossed in our spicy Calabrian sauce served with tangy gorgonzola sauce on Olive Garden’s signature breadstick.

Eggplant Parmigiana Breadstick Sandwich: Hand-breaded eggplant, fried and topped with Italian cheese and marinara served on Olive Garden’s signature breadstick.


Olive Garden is giving guests new ways to enjoy spaghetti throughout the day:

**Meatball Deep Dish Spaghetti Pie: Spaghetti, seven cheeses and Italian bacon baked to perfection in a flaky crust and topped with meatballs and homemade meat sauce.

**Chicken Alfredo Deep Dish Spaghetti Pie: Spaghetti, seven cheeses and Italian bacon baked to perfection in a flaky crust and topped with grilled chicken and our homemade Alfredo.

Spaghetti Rosso with Chicken & Bacon: Tomato-infused spaghetti with grilled chicken, bacon, red peppers, tomatoes and asparagus tossed in a homemade Parmesan pesto sauce.

**These are what were on the menu at the High Line along with the Italian Meatball Breadstick sandwich. 

I can’t wait to try them all. I was beyond stuffed because these were being served all day. I met the sweetest staff and chefs who took care of me throughout the day and was also informed by staff and the manager that an Olive Garden is coming to Harlem this summer. I can’t wait because as a Harlem resident this is great for my community. I am really looking forward to the ribbon cutting ceremony and maybe joining the team. Also looking forward to taking the family out to eat and try the new sandwiches and spaghetti pies.

New RAGÚ Homestyle Pasta Sauce Tested at NYC Live Event

23 May

Tracking Pixel

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of RAGÚ® Homestyle pasta sauce.

I love pasta so much I feel like I have some Italian roots in me. My love for RAGÚ® pasta sauce started when I was a teenager. I used to watch my aunt cook her famous spaghetti and meat sauce. She always used RAGÚ and her meal was amazing. As I started cooking I also used RAGÚ for my pasta dishes and I made a great choice in carrying on the tradition. RAGÚ had been my go to pasta sauce for years and we love it.

I was invited to partner and attend RAGÚ NYC Live Event and try RAGÚ Homestyle pasta sauce. Did you think I would turn down this invitation? The event took place at the Bowery Hotel on the Rooftop. Jars of RAGÚpasta sauce were placed all around tempting me to cook. Luckily I didn’t have to because chefs were waiting to take orders of whatever you wanted to try. I told the chef to hook me up with spaghetti, ground turkey, garlic, fresh basil, asparagus fresh tomatoes, Parmesan cheese and of course the star of the event RAGÚ pasta sauce. My dish was the first one made and everyone was snapping their cameras and salivating over my dish. RAGÚ Homestyle pasta sauce hugged my pasta so right and tasted so good I had to go back for seconds. I also had the pleasure of meeting actress/talk show host Tamera Mowry and You tube/Instagram star Honey Suckle Catering. They were so kind and are also partnering with RAGÚ. 

RAGÚ Homestyle sauces are perfect to use on classic family meals like spaghetti and meatballs or ravioli. RAGÚ Homestyle is available in five flavorful, thick and hearty varieties – Traditional, Meat, Roasted Garlic, Four Cheese and Mushroom.

I already used my jar of sauce and made my family Spaghetti and Meat Sauce. It came out great and was devoured so fast I wasn’t able to get any pictures. Next up will be lasagna.

Johnsonville believes in bringing the family together through food, but the meal doesn’t have to be complicated.• Johnsonville is the number one brand of sausage in America.

• Convenience is key when kids are cooking for mom; make it easier by cooking with Johnsonville.

Johnsonville asked me to create my own variation of a kid-friendly breakfast for Mother’s Day. My kids were excited to work in the kitchen with me. We love cooking together and thinking of new recipes. 

We came up with a corn muffin, sausage with maple syrup. Easy to make, don’t have to turn on oven and easy clean up. Perfect for any size hands. It’s like stuffed French toast. 


*1 or 2 packages of store bought corn muffins or you can make from scratch. 

*1 package of Johnsonville fully cooked breakfast sausages (turkey or original)

*Maple syrup (drizzle on what amount you want)


In a skillet or frying pan heat up sausages for 7-9 minutes (or maybe even less than that). Flip a few times. 

Cut muffins in half, place in frying pan with butter already melted and heat till nice and bubbly. You can brown on both sides or just one side. Place sausage pattie on corn muffin, add maple syrup and place other half of muffin on top. 

There you have it! Three ingredients, fast and ready in no time. Johnsoville sausage patties fit perfectly on corn muffins. 

My daughter also came up with a quick snack or appetizer with Johnsonville sausages. She put crackers on a plate and added the Johnsonville sausage and tater tot on top. The tater tot had cheese melted on as well. You can add so many things to it. I thought she did a great job.

We also made a classic breakfast wrap with egg, cheese and Johnsonville sausage. We love our wraps in the morning. 

My Mother’s Day breakfast is looking good. Johnsonville makes it so easy for a fast and tasty meal every time. We enjoyed creating these recipes for you. Hope you enjoy making them with your kids as well. Happy Mother’s Day!!!

· Breyers Natural Vanilla Snack Cups: Features Breyers Natural Vanilla Ice Cream, made with simple ingredients like fresh cream, sugar, milk and Rainforest Alliance Certified vanilla beans, in a pre-portioned snack cup.

Sara Lee Artesano Bread for #NationalGrilledCheeseDay and Recipes 

12 Apr

April is finally here and the trees are blooming. It is also known that April showers bring May flowers . Do you know what else April brings? It brings lots of grilled cheese sandwiches. April is National Grilled Cheese Month. 

I grew up on lots of grilled cheese sandwiches and my kids love them just as much as I do. There’s so many varieties of cheese to choose from and that goes for the bread as well. But for me I am very selective. I’ll try all types of cheeses but I love bread that can make my sandwich taste great and hold all that cheese that I pile on. 

Sara Lee has an amazing line of breads but their new line of Artesano bread goes above and beyond delicious. Sara Lee Artesano  Bread in stores now. Sliced thick with a mouthwatering soft texture and ringed with a golden crust, Sara Lee Artesano Bread has an Italian flavor profile with rich flavor and distinctly creamy character. The homemade taste is without artificial flavors, colors or high fructose corn syrup. It is an ideal substitute for any bakery-style bread in a favorite sandwich, or the perfect primary ingredient in recipes like paninis, French toast, bread pudding, strata and grilled cheese. Artesano has an average price of $2.99. 

 Below are some tips and techniques to hone your sandwich craft – essentially, the three “Bs” of the perfect grilled cheese:

Base — Like most iconic sandwich makers across the country would say, the bread you choose will make or break your masterpiece. Sara Lee’s new Artesano style bread is the perfect canvas for your grilled cheese creation. The hearty Italian slices will hold strong under the weight of the gooey cheese, but won’t overpower your fillings. It also crisps nicely on the outside, while the inside remains soft and fluffy for when you dig in.

Butter — If you’ve already committed to indulging in directly on the outside of the bread, rather than melting it in the pan first. This allows every corner of your Artesano bread to be coated, allowing for an even, golden sear edge- to-edge.

Blend — What you put inside your grilled cheese matters, and not all cheeses are created equal. Are you looking for a spicy, savory blend? Or how about a sweet and tangy? Whatever the combo, remember your cheese and other fillings need to play together nicely in the sandbox. Pick ingredients that pair well for that perfect balance on your palate. 

 I am so glad Sara Lee came out with this bread. I love eating it right out of the bag. It makes all of my sandwiches taste so good. I was asked to make grilled cheese sandwiches with this wonderful bread and you know I couldn’t turn down that offer. April 12, 2016 is National Grilled Cheese Day so I bring you 6 sandwiches for you to try or just drool over as you look at the pictures. I’m showing you the before, during and after. I enjoyed making these and can’t wait to come up with more recipes. 

1. Cheddar Medium 




2. Colby, Cream Cheese and Bacon Bits 

3. Havarti, Bacon, Guacamole and Peoper Jack

 4. Havarti. Colby, Pepper Jack on my Sandwich Press 


5. Red, Yellow,Orange, Green Peppers, Red Onion, Honey Glazed Turkey, Havarti and Pepper Jack Cheese

 6. This is my 4 stack Colby and Cheddar

Make The Switch to Turkey with Jennie-O and The Biggest Loser (recipe)

21 Feb

 Each year, many Americans commit to New Year’s resolutions focused on achieving a healthier lifestyle. However, by the second week in February, 80 percent of those resolutions are kicked to the curb as people try to implement impractical lifestyle changes. (U.S. News & World Report)

Essential to making healthy lifestyle changes stick, is taking small steps and setting realistic benchmarks, a lesson the trainers on NBC’s The Biggest Loser continuously preach to the show’s contests. In the spirit of making small, impactful changes, Biggest Loser trainer Jen Widerstrom taught contestants how to create a nutritious and delicious new Jennie-O breakfast recipe during the episode that aired Monday, Feb. 15. 
If you caught The Biggest Loser last week you saw this amazing recipe made featuring Turkey Breakfast Sausage Chilaquiles with JENNIE-O® Lean Mild Turkey Breakfast Sausage Roll. Created in collaboration with Biggest Loser RD Cheryl Forberg, the recipe puts a tasty, low-cal spin on a favorite south-of-the-boarder dish. Here is the recipe below:


Turkey Breakfast Sausage Chilaquiles


Serves 8

Prep time 20 mins

Total time under 30 mins






2 (14.5-ounce) cans diced fire roasted tomatoes

1 cup chopped onion

1 roasted red bell pepper

1 cup fat-free low-sodium chicken broth

¼ cup chopped cilantro

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

2 teaspoons chopped garlic

½ teaspoon chili powder

½ teaspoon ground mustard

½ teaspoon dried oregano

½ teaspoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon chipotle chili in adobo sauce, if desired

salt and pepper, if desired



1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Mild Turkey Breakfast Sausage Roll

48 baked corn tortilla strips

½ cup thinly sliced red onion

¼ cup crumbled low-fat feta cheese

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 medium avocado, died or ½ cup guacamole, if desired




In bowl of food processor or jar of a blender purée all sauce ingredients until smooth. Pour into a 2 quart sauté pan, simmer sauce, stirring, 3 minutes and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Keep warm. (Sauce may be made 2 days ahead and chilled, covered.) Yield 6 cups.



Cook turkey sausage as specified on the package. Always cook to well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Set aside.

Assemble Chilaquiles in shallow dishes or soup bowls. Crumble 6 tortilla chips into each bowl. Top with ¾ cup very hot sauce. Sprinkle with ¼ cup turkey sausage crumbles. Garnish with onion, feta cheese, cilantro and avocado, if desired.

I’m drooling just looking at the picture. I love turkey burgers, sausage and ground turkey and have made the switch from ground beef when making my favorite dishes. This recipe is definitely being saved as I will make this soon. For more information on the partnership and Biggest Loser-approved recipes, visit @JennieO on Instagram.
