Chef Boyardeelicious

There are days when life gets so busy and chaotic that when my family starts asking “What’s for Dinner?”, I want to run and hide! I am sure all my Mom friends out there can relate! Sure, we love to cook a healthy, homemade meal for our families. However, sometimes a quick and easy approach is best! That is why I am beyond thrilled to share with you a quick, healthy and oh so easy alternative: Chef Boyardeelicious.

I had a small party to share this awesome discovery with my other Mom friends, and one of them became a CHEF before the night was over!

My friend, Natalie, does not like to cook. She is a busy nurse, Mom, wife, etc. She prefers to let her hubbie cook or order takeout. However, after her night of cooking fun with some Chef Boyardee recipes and products, you would think she graduated from cooking school! She loved every minute of it and was amazed at how easy and DELICIOUS the recipes were!

Not only are these recipes affordable, easy and tasty, they are also low fat and healthy! YAY!

For my party, I received some coupons, aprons, an awesome chef hat, recipes, and helpful tools to make it a fabulous gathering. For the food portion of the party, I wanted to make two completely different recipes.

One was all in one pot: Chili-roni! LOVE the easy clean up. Honestly, I have never been a huge chili fan, however, I have to say, this was supremely yummy! The recipe was super easy to follow and we added our own touches to it. We put shredded cheese, crackers and non-fat sour cream on the table to go with it. It made it even yummier!

The other recipe we made was Italiano: Ravioli Lasagna. YUM! This recipe was a little more involved than the Chili-roni, but, easy nonetheless. The ooey-gooey cheesy goodness makes this one a real winner.

You can find many other delicious and easy recipes, ideas and tips on the Chef Boyardee site, here.

I highly recommend trying any and all of them! They are great recipes that will make any Mom’s life easier on those days when you just want to go back to bed! Make it a Chef Boyardeelicious night! It is a much healthier alternative to eating out. Your family will think you slaved for hours on end when they taste how spectacular these recipes are. Tip: throw some flour on your apron or nose for added effect! LOL!

Don’t stop there though! Be creative and make your own yummy recipes! Then head on over to this link to enter their fabulous recipe contest and YOU could WIN FREE recipes for a YEAR!!!! Hurry though, contest ends March 11, 2012!
