Disclosure: I received tastefully simple products in exchange for this review, however, all opinions are 100% mine.
In the past, I've attended Tastefully Simple parties and I've been a huge fan of their products. I love their dip mixes, their sauces, and desserts, but I had never actually checked out the recipe section of their website.
I already expected to love the flavors, but I was really excited to put the "parent-friendly" notion to the test.
With two parents who work full time and four kids that play sports most nights of the week, I'm always looking for quick delicious dinners to make at home.
I took on the challenge and decided to try the Bayou Bourbon and Bacon Meatloaf recipe and Sweet Mustard Roasted Potatoes.
The Bayou Bourbon and Bacon Meatloaf uses Bacon Bacon ($8.99) which is also amazing to use for dips, and Bayou Bourbon Glaze ($8.99).
The Sweet Mustard Roasted Potatoes recipe uses the Sweet Mustard Moppin’ Sauce ($8.99).
Both recipes took less than 30 minutes of prep. time which definitely qualifies as quick to me. They were also very simple to follow.
The Result: Dinner was delicious!
The meatloaf had a sweet caramelized flavor, and the potatoes had a nice sweet and smoked flavor.
It was so nice to offer a flavorful dinner that did not require a lot of prep. time. The recipes don't use very much of the tastefully simple ingredients, so there is plenty of leftovers to make more meals.
After a simple delicious meal we treated ourselves to very yummy Chewy Chocolate Cookies using the tastefully simple Chewy Chocolate Cookie Mix ($7.99).
The Cookie mix is so simple to make, you just add a little vegetable oil and water, mix it up, and place on your cookie sheet.
And $1 per box is donated to Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® campaign!
After 12 minutes in the oven, you get these irresistible cookies!
They were delicious!
The kids ate the meal so well, they definitely earned cookies for dessert.
