Get Ready for March Produce Madness!!

Everyone’s getting pumped to find out who the number 1 seeds are going to be in NCAA March Madness, but we’re even more pumped to find out which produce ingredients reigns supreme this month! In the spirit of March Madness, we’re hosting our very own battle, filled with the freshest ingredients from every season.

Each day, we’ll have a new match-up between two produce ingredients. We’re beginning with the two spring ingredients, strawberry and artichoke. Which ingredient would you rather eat or which do you enjoy cooking with most? Whichever you prefer, make sure to vote for it so it can move ahead and have a chance to become the March Produce Champion! Your vote determines which fruit or vegetable makes it to the next round.

Tell your friends about this competition, too! We want to make sure your voice is heard!

The first match-up will take place on March 1, 2011. Come back to Chew on That to cast your vote! Remember, voting only lasts for 24 hours!

Cocktail Hour: The Fruity Boozy Smoothie

p5120122

I haven’t been feeling too well lately.  I’ve been coughing, sneezing, and laying in bed all day.  When it came time to make a cocktail, I thought to myself, “this is not going to be good for my system.”I almost wimped out on making a cocktail this week; that is, until I had a revelation.  I thought of the perfect way to get all the vitamins I’ve been needing AND booze it up a little bit: I could make a smoothie!  A fruity, boozy smoothie to be precise!  Read the rest of this entry »

POM Tea expands

I know I’ve been sounding like a walking advertisement lately, but I just like to share a good thing when I see it. Can you blame me?

If you’ve lived with me recently (ok, so only a few people can stake claim to that,) you know that I have an addiction to POM tea. Not the POM, as in pomegranate juice, the TEA. The pomegranate lychee green tea, to be exact.

Made by POM Wonderful, the stuff is relatively new. I happened to be there for the product’s birth, and now I am proud to say I’ve watched it grow into…a larger bottle:

POM tea larger bottle

And this, my friends, is GREAT news for me. The producers of POM tea originally only sold it in single serving 16-oz. keepsake glasses. I’m too embarassed to tell how many glasses I had collected over the years….er, months. But let’s just say I could probably have supplied all of your glassware needs (and your neighbor’s.) So, needless to point out, my helpless consumption habits were inefficient for both my wallet and refrigerator.

Solution: the 44-oz. bottle! I couldn’t be happier. Well, maybe if they made it just a little cheaper I could. But either way, thanks POM tea. I was honestly going to write and suggest the larger bottle, but you beat me to it.
