Coming Back With Some Food Reviews

Hi everyone! It's so good to be home, although jet lag is a beast! Who would have thought that three measly hours could cause so much damage. Hopefully we'll be back to a more normal schedule soon, but in the meantime, we're enjoying a little vacation after our vacation.


Over the last few months I've been able to sample a few more new products sent to me by Foodbuzz. These are way overdue, but hopefully still useful. The first one was Mushroom Ravioli from Buitoni. I didn't do a whole lot with this ravioli except drizzle a bit of olive oil and Pecorino Romano so that I could really focus on the pasta.

It. Was. So. Good.

My husband and I enjoyed this together, and there was absolutely no dialogue between us because we were too busy stuffing our faces. If you need a quick, inexpensive, and delicious dinner, I highly recommend this stuff. It looks like Buitoni has quite a few types and flavors of pasta that look just as delicious.



The second product I was able to sample were these Eggo Fruit Pizzas. I have to say, I loved the idea. A whole wheat waffle, topped with yogurt, granola and berries, a delicious combination. However, I wasn't crazy about the actual product. The waffle was a bit chewy, the yogurt flavorless, and the berries few and warped by the effects of the microwave. I would love to recreate it, but unfortunately, I don't see myself purchasing it again.

I hope you've all enjoyed your summers so far. I'm going to do my best to catch up with you all in the next few days, I'm excited to see what you've been up to! I've got a nice and healthy line up planned since I've got a few ~ahem~ vacation pounds to get rid of. Can't wait to see how it goes. Enjoy your week everyone, I'll be chatting with you soon!

I just got my buitoni pasta yesterday...can't wait to try it! It kinda irks me the packages are so small...I'd say barely enough for one. I'll have to be sneaky :)

I'm so glad that you're back!! I've really missed you:)

I do buy the buitoni sometimes. They have a spicy sausage one that I really like.

I've seen the breakfast waffles around and they do look like a cute idea. Maybe good to make from scratch?

Looking forward to your lightened up recipes. I always gain a few pounds on vacation. It's just inevitable.

I've been missing you! We felt the same way- loved the pasta meh to the eggo. The calorie count is pretty ridiculous for what it is
