Review: Kraft

48387666_2404983346181918_8556751962433912832_n.jpgSweet teriyaki….sounds and looks so good. However, it wasn’t my favorite. Kraft should stick to just the BBQ portion of the sauce business. I just wasn’t incredibly impressed. Luckily it wasn’t horrible. Some people may love it, but the taste was just so off from what I know teriyaki sauce to be, that I just couldn’t get accustomed to it.

Have you tried this?

Review: Wild Garden

45421900_1907619852606358_2727412801143308288_n.jpg

I found this in our ethnic aisle at the grocery store. I used it on chicken. It wasn’t until after I used it all that I realized, I could have used it on veggies too. I really liked the marinade, but I didn’t use it as long as the package says and it was still stronger. I even rubbed the chicken on the side of the bowl to get a little off of the chicken. Honestly, it was super good. We liked it. I’ll buy it again. In fact, my guys liked it soooo much that they ended up eating all of it.

Have you tried this marinade? What was your thoughts?

Review: Roland Parmesan Risotto

45493689_956175881241385_3866924215261200384_n.jpg

I made this. I always see these different pasta things in the aisles at the supermarket and I think hmm…easy peasy–let’s do it. We do. This is one of those things we’re glad we tried it. It’s really creamy. It tastes good. I wish it’d have a deeper parmesan taste, but you can do that by adding a bit of your own parmesan if you choose, but it’s good without it too. In fact, my son said mom this is good stuff, what is it. He was told and then he says well let’s buy this again! It cooks at a normal time. It’s not quick, but it’s not so crazy that whenever you cook it ends up leaving you with chewy noodles. It’s perfect. We like it!

Roland’s Israeli Couscous

I will admit at first I was unsure if I even liked this. However, after a few bites, I was hooked. I’ve determined that I really enjoy Israeli couscous even more than regular. It’s bigger. I love that this has a tangy, Tuscan, yummy flavor. I’ll be buying this again. It’s good. It isn’t dry, like I found regular couscous from another unsaid company to be. I highly recommend you give this a try- it’s so good.

Review: Birds Eye Veggie Made

41484460_2327430173940843_2270612315902574592_n.jpg

My nutritionist said that she had eaten a few varieties of these. I decided to give it a try. It’s not HORRIBLE. However, I don’t love it. It does not taste like mac and cheese and has an odd after taste. What really bugged me the most though was that most of my “noodles” were almost hard. I didn’t over cook it either. I may or may not eat this again. I just have very little to say about the product currently. I’m anxious to try the other flavors.

Alamo Steak House Pigeon Forge, TN

I’m just not a big fan. I’d give them probably 3.5-4 stars. Honestly, I was so upset because their prices online do not reflect the prices of their actual menu. It’s like double the cost. Only kids can order off the kids menu. Normally I don’t complain much about this, because there’s something at least comparable on the regular menu. Not here. Their steaks were all big. I couldn’t eat all of that. Cooper and I could have just shared a cheeseburger. This is the cheeseburger he got. It was ONE POUND. Why does one need a one pound cheeseburger? I didn’t get it! I got some French onion soup, because it’s my favorite soup. Anytime I’m at a restaurant and they have it, I must buy it. It was pretty good, but the richness was so much and there was nothing to cut through that richness. I couldn’t finish it, because I couldn’t tolerate that richness. I ate about half of it. If it had something to freshen up with, I think the soup would have been the bomb. I had a kids steak, because it’s what Coop ordered, and then I ended up eating it, because the cheeseburger looked better to him I guess. Anyway the steak had been brined for too long. They had horrible texture. Coop did LOVE the cheeseburger and fries though. For 3 people we paid 95.00. I almost died. It was just too much. Our waiter refused to come by our table regularly. He made me feel uncomfortable. The waiter aside, because he didn’t matter; I will not go back again. It’s just too expensive for my blood for blah food.

Curley’s BBQ Pigeon Forge, TN

We always try to go to places we’ve never been to before when we go on vacations. No chain restaurants that we can go to at home. We decided to try out Curley’s.  I’m super picky about BBQ sauce…and I loved theirs. We really loved their fries. They were the best part of the whole meal. The BBQ was ok. It wasn’t horrible, but it was really dry. As you can see I put a ton of BBQ on mine, so I wouldn’t choke to death. I’m hoping that the issue is not wide spread, but instead an isolated incident. I also think they’re rather pricey. It really sucked we sat in the drive thru forever waiting for our food too. I’d probably give them a 3.5 stars. I don’t know if I’ll ever go back, but I’d definitely consider it.
