Shirley J {Giveaway} – CLOSED

A few years ago, I spent a carefree day at a Women’s Expo, held at UVU in Orem, UT.  I so distinctly remember one of the booths and their phenomenal white sauce, that years later, I knew I wanted to try it again.  It was Shirley J, and their famous white sauce!
Shirley-J-logo4I could immediately think of so many ways to use this–on pasta, over rice, as a gravy, etc.  The fact that you only need to add water made it almost irresistible.  I could only think of how many dozens of cans of cream-of-whatever I wouldn’t have to haul.  Lucky me, to get to review the Whisk Bliss, Universal Cook Base, the Biscuit & Baking mix, and the Chicken Bouillon!

The Whisk Bliss was just as fabulous as I remembered it years ago.  Just add water and whisk it together.  Couldn’t be easier.

The biscuits were also just as easy, and turned out so tasty!  Very, very easy to make.  I used a Pampered Chef pastry cutter and embosser, but any round cutter would work fine.  I think I expected the biscuits to be a little bigger, or to rise a little more, but I did beat them pretty hard, and my husband still thought they were perfect.

We made these for a Saturday morning breakfast, and both of us could only eat two biscuits w/gravy before we were stuffed.  Filling, to say the least.

You probably remember Shirley J and the giveaway hosted last month (and you can read that review HERE) for their Mugging products.  Be sure to visit Shirley J and check out all their yummy mixes.  Oh what I’d do for a pantry full of this stuff!

My sister-in-laws and I have started collecting mugs together.  You know, those cute “You Are Here” mugs, found at Starbucks, and its sure been fun to pull them out almost every other night for warm treats and drinks!  There is something about cold weather that makes you want to eat nothing cooler than fresh-out-of-the-oven.  Or in this case, fresh out of the microwave.  Its true, I’m going to tell you about a most delicious treat, called Mugging!, from Shirley J, that involves mixing a few contents in a mug, microwaving for a couple minutes, and eating right out of the mug.

These are PERFECT for the holidays!  Especially in these new and darling mugs from Shirley J:
IMG_8887
There are 8 different flavors, and we’ve been able to try five of them–all favorites.  They are really very simple to make.  Dump the contents in a mug, follow to directions to add water and usually one other ingredient, like canned pumpkin, chocolate chips, or an egg.
IMG_8896I first fell in love with the Pumpkin Spice Bread.

The finished product has a good consistency–not fluffy and airy like cheap cake, but something thicker, more like a bread pudding.  And OH how filling!  Three of us had one to ourselves on an empty stomach, and not one of us could finish.  This is not just a snack, but really a full-size dessert or meal, so you could half it or go into it solo if you’re very hungry.  You could easily split this between two people and feel like you had a full dessert or meal.  I just tried the Quiche in a Cup for breakfast, and its almost 2pm and I’m still not hungry.
 egg
These flavors are delicious!  What really makes these fun are the add-ins on the back of the packet.  There are usually three or four ideas of how to take this to the next level, like adding in particular ingredients such as tomatoes, more cheese, green peppers, or in regards to the desserts, add-ins like chocolate chips, walnuts, raisins, marshmallows, etc.  The Chocolate Brownie Cake is a real winner.

We found that with each of these packets, we had to microwave for atleast an additional 1:30 beyond what the directions said, but the possibility of this happening is indicated on the back, and we do have a very weak microwave.  Even with interrupted cooking times, everything turned out scrumptious.
 mustache
And aren’t these the most darling mugs?!  Very large and solid.  We’ll be pulling these out all winter long!
I love that the baking dish is also the serving dish–cook and eat, one mug to clean.  In all, these are just the perfect cold-weather treat!  Visit Shirley J and see what other goodies are available.
One lucky winner will receive:
1- Snowflake Mug
1- Santa Mug
3 Mugging Mix Flavors (Chocolate Brownie Cake, Pumpkin Spice Bread, and Quiche in a Cup)
A $37.90 value!
