PostHeaderIcon Keystone Quick Beef Mix-Up for Kids Sport Nights

Keystone Logo
I am always on the hunt for super fast things to make on the kid’s baseball game nights. As if having 4 sons isn’t crazy enough, add two sons that play baseball. This quite often makes for a tad of chaos when it comes to dinner time. I will admit, I am not the most organized person, but I am really trying. I am stepping up my game this year because quite frankly, the stress is just getting old. Like me!

Enter Keystone All-Natural Beef! I normally try not to use too much “canned food”, but Keystone is premium USDA beef that is hand-packed into a convenient can to make your recipe easier. Their all-natural beef has only two ingredients: beef and sea salt. Perfect for quick meals like stew, stir-fry and more! I also was very pleased when I checked out the label. Since Ales is a Type 1 Diabetic, I looked for the carb count. ZERO! Many “processed” types of meat have carbs. *thumbs up* for Natural and carb free!

This meal couldn’t have been any easier. The rice is actually what made it take longer. You could use premade mashed potatoes instead and that would cut the time down to probably 10 minutes. You can really add anything that you want to this. I am not a huge vegetable fan, so I kept it minimal. Patrick did add some sliced black olives to his when it had finished cooking. read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon It’s National Pasta Month………… says the Italian girl

Cucina Antica National Pasta MonthWho am I kidding? Being Italian means that EVERY MONTH is National Pasta Month, but for everyone else, this happens in October. You really don’t know what you are missing though. Along with my family, Cucina Antica is celebrating National Pasta Month throughout the month with delicious, authentic Italian recipes. What better time to try new recipes?? By adding artisan ingredients, like Cucina Antica cooking sauces, you are choosing  a better-for- you option that is full of authentic flavor!!

I have tried a lot of sauces in my, years but, Cucina Antica cooking sauces are made with imported Italian San Marzano tomatoes, no artificial preservatives, lower sodium, no added sugar, no added water, gluten-free and no tomato paste. WHAT? Did your taste buds just perk up? Cucina Antica provides at-home chefs products made through an artisanal production method that allows consumers to cook the sauces without losing any flavor. Guess what else? They are one of few sauces that are non-GMO verified!

Give me red tomato gravy and I can make just about anything with it. Pumpkin on the other hand, not really something I have worked with before. But, I was determined I was going to figure out something to make with it! I would definitely have to ponder this one for a few more days.
