Flavourful Recipe Mixes by Club House: Take it up a notch! #Giveaway
Having grown up in London, Ontario (home to Club House by McCormick's Canada), I have always been partial to Club House products. Some people may think I make fantastic Yorkshire puddings... but truthfully, they're not mine. They're Club House. (cough!) We use their steak spice on our beef, their gravy packets when there is still meat left but no gravy (now with 25% less salt), and of course their Slow Cooker blends save the day from time to time too!
With one month of school down I have to say... I feel like I have been making lunches or cooking non-stop all month! New to full days of school, the children are eating me out of house and home. That means I've been doling out heartier meals to fill the end of day tummy and at this pace, I was beginning to run out of ideas.
*Saving Grace* I was asked to review some 'Club House Flavourful Recipe Mixes' during this hectic time and I am so glad I had the opportunity! These little packets have really simplified life. Each packet contains the right mix of all the spices you need to pull off tasty restaurant style creations such as 'Lemon Thyme Pork Tenderloin' or 'Herbs de Provence Roasted Chicken' in a pinch. With no trans fat, no artificial colours or flavours and no added MSG, you can't go wrong. I'll admit to not being the best meal planner, so these little packets of goodness have helped inspire me-- plus, on the back of each pack is the recipe ingredients just in case you aren't feeling entirely creative.
Here are some of the meals I have been cooking up with the help of Club House:
I loved that I wasn't confined to using the mix suggested ingredients.
and Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs.
We loved both variations!
The 'CH Lemon Thyme Pork' Flavourful Recipe Mix became a family favourite.
I've never seen my kids eat Pork Tenderloin like that before!
I also chose to use this mix as my Slow Cooker base and did not bake it as suggested.
Oh, and of course we had 'CH Yorkshire Pudding'... just because we love them!
'CH Butter Chicken Sauce' was not as spicy as I like it, but my kids loved it.
That's all that matters, right? (I added some more zing to mine!)
'CH Slow Cooker Beef Stew' - I dumped in all the ingredients and went on
about my day. Dinner was ready and waiting for us - voila~!
'CH Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff'
No Beef? No worries!
I threw in Chicken instead AND I omitted noodles! Whoops~!
