Fresh Tomato and Couscous Salad #SundaySupper

 

April is definitely a great month to start making delicious and fresh recipes, specially when the products are just around the corner. In my case I can find all kinds of fresh and local products in my supermarket.
This is just one of the reason why I love this weeks theme, fresh tomatoes are great on spring, and we can get all kinds, not only are they great for salads, but a good red sauce made with the best quality tomatoes is what everybody needs right how.

But of course this salad is perfect for an afternoon picnic in this amazing weather. Well, you know, I live in California so the weather is always the best, sorry to my friends dealing with snow right know.

But if you feel like channeling some Cali weather you can always make my salad, is fresh made with great ingredients and everybody will love it.

Pairing the Perfect Lasagna #BalanceYourPlate #ad

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Stouffer’s. The opinions and text are all mine.

Have you ever wonder in the aisles of the super market looking for an alternative to your everyday menu? Well I’m, and don’t get me wrong I love to cook but sometimes I need an easy alternative to our dinner.

Luckily for me I found the perfect and better alternative, no more junk food for us on those days. My go-to meal has to be the delicious frozen meals from Stouffer’s specially the most amazing lasagna I have ever had, the Family Size Lasagna with Meat & Sauce. It is incredible good and let me tell you as a lover of all things Italian, this lasagna is definitely at all times in my freezer.

What I love the most about Stouffer’s is the has recently announced its new “Kitchen Cupboard” commitment. This new initiative focuses on shortening and simplifying recipes that only include ingredients that consumers can recognize and can find at home, like vine-ripened tomatoes, freshly made pasta, and real mozzarella.

And over the next few years, consumers will see Kitchen Cupboard renovations across existing and new products.

The guidelines include:

  • Using ingredients that consumers trust and recognize, like what they would use in their own home kitchens, with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives
  • Working on simplified recipes that result in great taste with fewer ingredients
    Offering recipes that provide consumers with the same, or better, dining experience at a good value

So you have to be sure and thrust in the quality of the Stouffer’s products. With this delicious lasagna I decided to make a simple but perfect salad. This simple spinach salad wich my younger daughter love to make with me and you can’t image how well the salad and the lasagna go together.

So don’t worry anymore or wonder in every aisle corner, heat over to the freezer section and grab a Family Size Lasagna with Meat & Sauce to enjoy with your family and don’t forget to make my spinach salad.

Biscotti sounds fancy and difficult, but don’t worry it is the most easy cookie to make, and you can use any flavor combination you desire to make it more interesting.

For me nothing beats the flavor of lemon and almond, and my biscotti recipe is not to sweet so for sure you can definitely dip your biscotti in the coffee or hot chocolate. The main idea here is eat more Biscotti!
