Our Super Yummy Review Roundup11:30 PM
Sometimes, we just get too many yummy goodies to review in a short amount of time. Rather than put aside those that we don't have space for, we throw them together into a "mini roundup" to let you know how much we enjoyed them. If it's on our list -- consider it a great product that your family will enjoy!

I absolutely loved these dishes. The sauces were indulgent and made me feel like I as eating something rich and calorie-laden (instead of your typical "I'm still hungry" diet dish.) Even with a spin in the microwave, these tasted fresh, and the veggies were crispy. My fave? The Garlic Chicken. The seasoning was right on, and anything with a perfectly-steamed asparagus has my vote.
Why we love it: It doesn't taste like 270 calories. Really.
Red Gold Canned Tomatoes
One of the reasons I adore living on a farm is that we have so much space to plant a garden. Unfortunately, our garden was a flop this year... and we harvested almost no tomatoes! We had the chance to try the almost-fresh goodness of Red Gold Canned Tomatoes, however, and they are a pretty good substitute for home grown (and way better than the bland, lifeless ones from the produce section of the grocer.) We used a can of the petite diced ones in our homemade Chicken Parmesan. Our kiddos ate it up!
Why we love it: Fresh tomatoes.... in December?
How can less be more? When it involves a product like Simply Heinz. To be honest, this ketchup tasted just like the Heinz we've been using for years. With a basic list of ingredients: tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, salt and spices -- you can know that you're giving your family just ketchup! We aren't against HFCS, but it's great to be able to recommend a tasty condiment that is.
Why we love it: Tastes like Heinz... without the corn syrup!
*We received samples of all of these products (as well as many others). These made the cut to be reported on. All opinions are my own.
