Martha White Blueberry Cheesecake Muffin Mix

On a scale of 1 - 10 I give this product a 10
The muffins are perfect when you need something quick.  The mix requires nothing more than 1/2 cup of water and they bake in about 15 minutes giving you 6 deliciously moist muffins.  As for taste, you can actually taste 'cheesecake.'  These will be another product that I will have stocked in my pantry.    Did I tell you they also come in Strawberry Cheesecake?!  Yum.

Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers

On a scale of 1 - 10 I have to give this product a 10.  The 12 oz. package serves 2 with about 3/4 cup each making it perfect when cooking for 1 or 2.  It's quick taking about 5-6 minutes in the microwave making it perfect for a quick after work meal.  There is no mess nor clean up.  It's cooked in it's own package allowing you to serve straight from the bag.  I tried the Cheesy Rice Broccoli and found the rice was cooked perfectly.  The broccoli was done but still had a slight crisp and the cheese was great.  I normally dislike frozen dishes with cheese sauce.  It's usually salty and has an artificial flavor.  Not this!  The sauce is smooth and creamy and seasoned perfectly.  This is a product I will be stocking in my freezer.

Buitoni Grilled Chicken & Spinach Cannelloni with Alfredo Sauce

On a scale of 1 - 10 I'm giving this product an 8. 
It's simple to make - you place the cannelloni into a baking dish and pour the Alfredo sauce over, cover and bake.  The taste is really good.  Add a salad and a glass of wine and you have a great dish for 2 all from one box made in one dish.  Now, why did I give it an 8 instead of a 10?  It's a little pricy for a frozen dish and I would like for it to have a little more chicken.  I think an addition of chicken will make the price more justified.  But... it is good and I will buy it again.
