Fresh Food Concept Spinach Dip

On a scale of 1 - 10 with I rate this product a 10+.

I'm trying to watch my carb and sugar intake so while reading labels in the grocery store I ran across this dip.  I was in a little bit of a hurry and didn't notice that it was 'made with Green Yogurt' until I got home and went to put it in the refrigerator.  Well I've bought yogurt dips before and didn't really like them but what the heck.  I put my mind to work and ended up with an idea to use the dip in place of mayo for a chicken salad.  It is simply perfect!  I love it and it only took 2 Tbsp. for 1 chicken breast.  This is a must try, even if you aren't trying to eat healthy!  Go to my mother site Stir, Laugh, Repeat to view the complete recipe.

Kraft Chargrilled Burger Barbecue Sauce

On a scale of 1 - 10 I give this product a 25!

The bottle says it's a Limited Edition but I'm really hoping that won't be the case.  This stuff is too good to be limited.

I love the taste of a burger cooked over charcoal but hate to do it, especially for just 2 people.  Gas grilling is easier but you don't get the same taste.  That is until now.  I took a pound of lean ground beef, added about 1/4 cup of the barbecue sauce and 1/4 cup of plain bread crumbs, mixed it all together and cooked it in a frying pan on the stove.  If you had not seen me cook those burgers you would swear I grilled them over charcoal.  And if I had cooked them on my Foreman indoor grill they would have had grill marks and you would really have thought they were cooked outside.

This is so good that since it does say Limited Edition I'm going back to the store and buy at least 6 more bottles just so I'll have some after it's no longer available.  You might want to do the same.  Or better yet, contact Kraft and ask them to continue making this bottle of smoke.

Oh yeah, just in case you're wondering why I added the bread crumbs I'll tell you.  I made one patty without, put it in the pan and due to the added liquid (the sauce) it would not stay together.  That's when I knew it needed just a little something to bind the meat together.

New Keebler Town House Sea Salt Pretzel Thins

On a scale of 1 - 10 I rate this product a 15+!

While walking through Walmart the other day I spotted these new crackers.  They are called Pretzel Thins and I love pretzels so I picked up a box to check it out further.  According to the package they are baked crackers that taste like pretzels.  When I saw the price, which I don't know if it was an introductory price or their regular price ($2.50), I decided to pick up a box.  Boy am I glad I did.

They do taste like pretzels.  They are crisp and crunchy with just the perfect amount of salt sprinkle.  They are thin but still thick enough to dip and maybe even top with a little chicken salad.  They go perfect with a salad and I'm even using them in place of bread with my meal.  Now I can't wait to use them in some of my recipes... like crushing some to coat baked fish... maybe crumbled and used as a crust in a dessert... and even sprinkle some on top of a casserole.

This is a product I believe anyone who likes pretzels and even just crackers would love.  Almost forgot, bet they would be good with soup too.

I do believe there is another flavor but I'm so hooked on the Sea Salt flavor that I haven't looked for nor tried any other flavor.
