I use an app on my phone for my grocery shopping list, and it has a predictive typing feature.  When my app pulled up everything on my list with the first tap of a letter, I realized that there are a few things I’m always restocking my pantry with.  These are pantry staples I just couldn’t cook without.

Next time you head to the store, grab this list and take it with you.  Always having these pantry staples on hand can mean the difference between saving you time by being able to whip up a meal on the fly or having to run to the store for just one simple thing. Continue reading »

Are you a home cook living in Kentucky?

I have loved to cook for my entire life.  I “opened” my first restaurant out of my mother’s kitchen when I was 7 or 8 years old, offering scrambled eggs, toast, bacon, and juice for 25 cents a plate.  My mom laughed – until the neighbors would swing by and ask me for my breakfast special (prices quickly rose at my mother’s request; we did have to cover our expenses, of course!).

Limited Edition Hunt's Delicious Dinners Cravebox - Kentucky Home Cooks

I still love to cook now, but I don’t have nearly as much time to get creative in the kitchen as I did back then. Work, family, errands, household tasks, reading “My Little Word Book” to my daughter for the 19th time that day – there just ins’t as much free time on my calendar as there were in my younger days.  That’s why I can’t wait to receive my limited edition Hunt’s® Delicious Dinners Cravebox!

This Cravebox will feature a new Dinner Sauce from Hunt’s that has the garden-fresh taste of Hunt’s California-grown tomatoes, combined with ethnic-inspired seasonings and ingredients.  They cost just $10 (to cover the cost of shipping and handling) and contain a collection of products that will help you create a tasty, easy meal for your family.  The icing on the cake?  Ten random boxes will contain a $100 VISA gift card and one random box will contain a grand prize worth $250!

These boxes are limited to residents of Kentucky and are sure to go quickly.  If you’re interested in getting in on this offer, head over to the Cravebox Hunt’s Delicious Dinners page and register!  Boxes are expected to ship on or around September 1st.

This is a sponsored post by me on behalf of SheSpeaks and Cravebox.  All opinions are, as always, 100% that of myself and my family.
