I have been asked many times by my peers, "How do you do it?" I'll say, "do what?" Then, they will follow up with some sort of "How do you have time to make dinner every night for your family?" Or, if someone invites us over for dinner, they will make sure to add some disclosure about their cooking not being completely homemade and therefore is not "Pennies on a Platter" standard. I think this is all flattering and such, but let's set the record straight:
I do not cook dinner every night (nor will I ever!) and there is no such level of cooking as "Pennies on a Platter" standard.
So this leads me to today's giveaway. When I was contacted by Pillsbury to review their new Simply... line and then host a giveaway for their products, I jumped at the chance. Why? Because I love Pillsbury products <gasp, again!> and use them often <gasp, gasp....breathe!>. 🙂
After thinking about it, I can see why my friends and family think I might make everything from scratch. These are the majority of the recipes that I post on the blog. It's just that there's not really much to a post on how I bake my Pillsbury biscuits, for instance. You feeling me?
Wednesday I posted this recipe in which I use the Pillsbury crescent rolls. It's one of our regular meals. Today, I'm giving you the chance to win a Pillsbury prize package. Pillsbury recently introduced two new products called Simply...Buttermilk Biscuits and Simply...Rustic French Bread. This is the information they gave me before I decided to try them out:
They really are the perfect solution for home cooks who are busier than ever, but still want to nurture those they love with something home-baked that they can feel good about serving. What’s great is that they are made with wholesome ingredients, including flour, buttermilk and sugar. They also contain zero grams of trans fat, no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial colors or flavors.
And, that's exactly how I felt about the biscuits and French bread when I tried them. Although in the past few years I've learned to make numerous bread recipes from scratch, I'm never embarrassed to prepare refrigerated doughs when I just don't have the time to wait for the yeast to do it's thing and then bake the loaf for an hour. Being highly involved in our church and community, time is limited and this probably holds true for many. I actually encourage you to stock up on some Pillsbury products and see what you can create! It beats spending the money to eat out, right?
This prize package includes a bread basket, bread board, artisan honey and a spreader, along with coupons to try their new Simply... products. To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment of your favorite Pillsbury product. If you don't have one, then please tell me which product you would like to try. And, if you are not familiar with their line, then head on over to their website to see what they have to offer. If you browse around a little, you'll find some easy and delicious recipes!
The giveaway is limited to domestic US residents only, one entry per person. Those who do not follow the terms will not be considered. Comments will close on Sunday, February 20 at 8 PM PST and I'll announce the winner next week. Although the giveaway is sponsored by Pillsbury, the opinions shared in this post are mine.
