Slice of Heaven

On a scale of 1 - 10 this products rates a 15 for me! 

I had the pleasure of sampling several breads that are made fresh and sold by Slices of Heaven.  Each bread is made using no preservatives and can be ordered for shipping.  Orders, which are baked daily, are carefully packed by hand, checked for quality, and boxed and packaged for shipping throughout the U.S., Canada, Hawaii, and overseas to the troops.  Breads remain fresh in the refrigerator for more than a week, or in the freezer for months. “When people eat our bread, they experience a hearth-to-home ambiance and warm, old-fashioned goodness.”

I had the pleasure of trying their Sweet Potato which has a light touch of nutmeg and their Hummingbird which has a combination of pineapple, coconut and walnuts.  They were both beyond delicious. 

So, where can you find your own 'slice of heaven?'  Simply go to the Slice of Heaven website to find locations that serve and sell their breads.  You can also order online and have them shipped straight to your door.  Believe me - you won't be disappointed!

belVita Breakfast Biscuits

On a scale of 1 - 10 I give this product a 10+

While in WalMart I spotted a lady passing out samples of a new product by Nabisco called belVita Breakfast Biscuits.  I read the nutritional information and found that each serving of 4 biscuits (cookies) had 2 grams of whole grain and 230 calories.  The carbs are 36g  with 8g of fat and no cholesteral.  But do they taste good.  I sampled all 3 flavors - Apple Cinnamon, Golden Oat and Blueberry.  They were all 3 very tasty with my favorite being the Golden Oat.

Now are they satisifying?  I substituted a package in place of my morning oatmeal.  By the time I finished my 4th cookie and drank my cup of coffee, I was full and stayed full until lunch.  So yes they are satisifying as well as filling.

On a scale of 1 - 10 I give this product a 10! 

I'm from the south so chowchow is a staple in my home.  I put it on just about any kind of shelled bean or pea.  It's has a great combination of sweet as well as sour making it perfect and I can't wait every year to find someone that has just made some of this homemade goodness.

I now have another product that is equally as good for my beans and peas and it's Slawsa.  Slawsa is a gourmet topping for everything!  It's basically chowchow but a bit thicker with a slightly different taste.  It's sweet but not quite as sour with a couple of ingredients added that I've not found in chowchow before.  It's got just a slight 'kick' of heat that makes it perfect for not only my peas but also my hotdogs and hamburgers.  It even makes a delicious tartar sauce for fish.  Simply mix to your own taste with mayo and you're good to go.  Delicious!

So, where can you find Slawsa?  Simple - just click here Slawsa
