Orzo with Tuna, Corn & Asparagus

Orzo with Tuna, Corn & Asparagus

I've been loving asparagus lately, so this caught my eye. What I love most is the color! Same as last week, I don't want to put the recipe on here since Everyday Food hasn't listed it on their website, but you can find it written out at Current Mom. We made the same adjustment to the oregano but we added an extra teaspoon of mustard.

This is a great way to eat tuna sans mayo. Next time I make this, I want to try it with the slow-roasted tomatoes from last week.

Birds Eye Voila! + Coupon Giveaway [CLOSED]

Birds Eye Voila!

As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received some coupons for Birds Eye Voila! skillet entrees. I am so excited to participate in this because Voila! is already one of my kitchen staples. They're perfect for those nights when you stare into your fridge and will it to speak to you (which happens far more often than we'd all like).

Sometimes I don't get home from class until after 8:30, and the last thing I want to do is make dinner. These take no time at all. They take about 15 minutes or less, less time that it takes to boil water and cook pasta. And the best part? Boyfriend approved! Xavier is actually the one that got me buying them in the first place a year or two ago. I noticed they recently changed their packaging, and it looks great.

They're perfect for me, but I know Xavier wishes there was more meat to it. Grilling up an extra chicken breast on the George Foreman would be no problem at all, but we're more about the convenience aspect.

My absolute favorite variety is their Beef Lo Mein, so this time I tried something different: Garlic Chicken (pictured above) and Shrimp Scampi. The Garlic Chicken had a great flavor, the carrots were sweet, and it took less than 13 minutes in the skillet. There are 17 different varieties, three sold in family size.

Now, on to the coupon giveaway! I received a ton of BOGO coupons, so if you'd like some, just comment below telling me why you want to try Birds Eye, or, if you already have, tell me why you love Voila! so much. Make sure you leave your email or a link to your site so I have a way to get in touch.

Pasta with Slow-Roasted Tomatoes and Basil

I picked up the special summer issue of Everyday Food magazine (better late than never) and tested some recipes while at home with my parents for the last few weeks of summer. We tried three different recipes, and this one turned out to be my favorite.

Pasta with Slow-Roasted Tomatoes & Basil

Since it is a special issue, the recipe isn't online at Everyday Food like with the normal issues. I'm against redistributing recipes that are book/magazine-only, butttttt I did happen to find it listed out somewhere else online.. and if I point you toward that site, that's not as bad, right? Well, probably, but it makes me feel better.  Here is the recipe for the pasta, and here is instruction on how to slow-roast the tomatoes. The recipe in the magazine adds a little sugar to the tomatoes. 

I am not a huge tomato fan, but they were wonderful. The pasta was light and fresh. My mom added bits of fresh mozzarella and baked chicken strips to go with it. 

It may be a little late, but if you can get your hands on the summer issue of Everyday Food, grab it!
