Annie’s Homegrown Organic Rising Crust Pizza Review & Giveaway

Annie's-logo-2012

I have been a fan of Annie's Homegrown Cheddar Bunnies for ages.  When my eldest son, now age seven, was a baby I discovered these natural and organic crackers.  Since then I have tried a variety of other Annie's Homegrown products and have been quite pleased with their quality and taste.  I also frequently purchase the Macaroni & Cheese varieties at my local Target for my kiddos. I recently had the opportunity to try Organic Rising Crust Pizza from Annie's Homegrown.  Like many families we purchase frozen pizza on a semi-regular basis.  It is always nice to have a couple tucked away in … [Read more...]

34960_112245172160823_100262986692375_86015_7439631_n

A while ago my family discovered the simple, easy, and delicious ingredient quinoa.  I am happy to report that this item is now a regular staple in my pantry.  I love trying new recipes and I find myself turning to AllRecipes.com for inspiration and simple instructions.  Not familiar with quinoa?

Referred to by the locals as a "protein powerhouse", it kept the Incan armies strong and robust. It … [Read more...]
