We love our ice cream in this house and more than that, we love our ice cream sundaes! We make fresh whipped cream, top gourmet ice cream with real caramel sauce and decadent hot fudge. Then we pile on the freshly whipped cream, add chopped nuts and of course a cherry on top. Some don’t give much thought to that cherry on top but we do. We recently heard about Dell’s Maraschino Cherries and had to try them.
Dell’s Maraschino Cherries are crunchy, tasty and sweet unlike the other brands we have tried that were limp, tasteless and not even appetizing to look at.
Located in Brooklyn, New York, Dell’s Maraschino Cherries come with or without stems and are the perfect “cherries” for your cocktails, soft drinks, ice cream or desserts. Dell’s Maraschino Cherries has a complete line of the best quality, best tasting, medium, large or jumbo sized maraschino cherries for consumers, retailers, schools, colleges, restaurants, hotels, hospitals and airlines. When you choose Dell’s Maraschino Cherries, you can be rest assured you’re choosing the best!
Check out the delicious Maraschino Cherry recipes on their website. Let me know how you top your favorite sundae and if you ever tried Dell’s Maraschino Cherries.
You know what’s one of my go to foods when I want a quick and easy side dish or to make to eat for lunch or a snack? It’s Success® Whole-Grain Brown Rice and Salsa. I have been eating that for the last several years so I was absolutely stoked to be chosen to write a sponsored post for Success® Boil-In-Bag Rice. I absolutely love it the brown rice and mild chunky salsa combination. I have no idea what ever led me to mix the two, but from the first time I did, it was love at first bite.
Have you tried Success® Boil-In-Bag Rice? If you have, then I am sure you will relate to how convenient it is to have in your pantry, I consider it a pantry staple. It’s simple to make and the brown rice can even sit for 30 minutes in the hot water (with the heat off) before serving making it foolproof and worry free.
If you’ve never tried it, you should! Success® Whole-Grain Brown Rice is 100% whole grain and gluten-free. The rice has a great chewy texture and nut-like flavor that are a nice departure from traditional rice products on the shelves. The cooked brown rice can be used in a variety of recipes from salads, soups, main entrees to desserts just like white rice. Success® Whole-Grain Brown Rice is available in two sizes (14 oz. and 32 oz.) to accommodate different household sizes.
I tried a recipe for the first time with Success® Whole-Grain Brown Rice. I improvised on one of the recipes I found online at the Success® Rice website. and made a fried brown vegetable rice. It was super easy. I just prepared 2 bags of Success® Whole-Grain Brown Rice according to the package directions.
I put the rice in a bowl and mixed it with peas and carrots (you can use cooked fresh, canned or frozen) and green beans. Then I heated up some oil in pan to cook 4 beaten eggs for about 40 seconds, began to break up the eggs into small pieces while they finished cooking.
When the eggs were cooked I added the rice and veggies and cooked until heated through adding a few tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce. An easy way to a healthy side that tastes great.
You may also like Success® White Boil-In-Bag Rice. I hope you will share with me if you are a user of this rice and what your favorite way to use it is or if you try a new recipe with it. If you have never tried it, I hope you will let us know your thoughts if you do and what you made with it.

My family tries to live a healthy lifestyle, that includes exercising, eating right, living green and toxin free and getting enough rest. It can be hard to find the time to prepare healthy meals and so recipes that make it easy to prepare healthy dinners my family will like are always a huge help. Having healthy snacks ready is a great way not to succumb to less than healthy options when you are feeling a need to snack or curb your hunger. Having cut up veggies you can pair with a healthy dressing or dip is a great way to avoid greasy chips or calorie filled cakes and cookies. Fruit and veggies smoothies are delicious and filling and pack a punch of energy. Simple planning can help you live a “Heart Healthy” life and take charge of your health!

I chose the Classic Meals plan and for my first meal picked the Spinach Rolls. They were very easy to prepare. You simply boil some lasagna noodles, thaw frozen chopped spinach which you mix with Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, one egg and salt and pepper to taste. Then you take the prepared tomato sauce and put some on the bottom of the pan and lay the noodles down, fill with the spinach mixture and roll. When they are all done you put the remaining sauce on and top with mozzarella cheese. Then bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes and put your garlic bread in to coincide with your rolls completion time. It was so easy and my family loved it!
