Tip of the Month, January 2013: Best Soup in Raleigh? Enter to Win

MinestroneFor my first giveaway of 2013, I’d love for my readers to provide me tips on where I can get the best soups in the Raleigh area. Stuff that would rival your grandmother’s homemade chicken soup. Stuff that would make the Soup Nazi proud. The reward? A $25.00 gift card to The Fresh Market! Yum!

Fresh Market gift card

The rules are simple. Just leave a comment about what your favorite soup, bisque, gumbo or chowder is in the Raleigh area and which restaurant serves it. No chili entries, please – that’s a future blog all on its own!

I am breaking this into two types of soups:

Those that contain meat, poultry or fish, like this hearty turkey, kielbasa and white bean soup:

Turkey, kielbasa and bean soup
Those which are vegetarian or vegan, like this refreshing chilled cucumber melon soup:

Cucumber melon soup

There will be two lucky winners — one for each category — drawn at random. The deadline for commenting is Jan. 31, 2013, at midnight.

So get your entries in – you can vote once for each category. Good luck! I can’t wait to hear (and try) your recommendations.

Eat drink and be merry!

Wheat Germ in Meatloaf? Oh Yeah!

Out of the oven

I was recently approached to try and review Kretschmer’s Wheat Germ, and was sent a coupon for a free jar of it, plus a coupon to give away to one of my readers (more about that at the end of this post, plus a disclaimer here that I am in no way affiliated with the Kretschmer company or brand.)

Win Kretschmer's wheat germ!

Wheat germ, I pondered. What could I make with wheat germ in addition to adding it to smoothie, sprinkling it on yogurt or putting it in cereal? While these are excellent ways to use this healthy food, I wanted something a bit different. Enter my meatloaf with spinach and oats (and now wheat germ). Oh yeah!

Product Review and Giveaway: Tuttorosso Tomatoes

Tuttorosso Tomato Products

The folks at Tuttorosso recently contacted me to review some of their tomato products and I must say I was flattered – this was totally out of the blue. I agreed immediately, mainly because I am familiar with Tuttorosso’s canned tomatoes and have used them in various recipes with great success.

Tuttorosso Package

OK, let’s get the disclaimers over with now. I am not affiliated, in any way, with Tuttorosso. I was given some product to rate and Tuttorosso is providing the same great package to one of my lucky readers (more about that at the end of this post.) So let the review begin.
