Simply Potatoes Review and Giveaway

Simply Potatoes

This giveaway is now closed

Make Life Special is all about recipes that are quick and simple to make with ingredients that are readily available.  I was asked to review “Simply Potatoes”  and I can wholeheartedly recommend this product.  Simply Potatoes can “Simply-fy” potato dishes by eliminating the hassle of peeling, boiling, slicing and dicing, while still giving you the potato dishes you love!  Simply Potatoes are made from fresh, never frozen potatoes.  So, that means you also don’t have the extra step of thawing them when using them in a recipe such as Vickie’s Hearty Breakfast Skillet.

I used the Simply Potatoes O’Brien Hash Browns in my  Hearty Breakfast Skillet.

Vickie's Hearty Breakfast Skillet 2

Simply Potatoes has a great website with lots of recipes….and they have a contest going on right now for a year’s supply of Simply Potatoes.  Simply Potatoes Website.

Simply Potatoes come in a wide variety of options —  Mashed Potatoes:  Traditional, Country Style, Garlic, Sour Cream and Chive and Sweet Potatoes.  Cut Potatoes:  Shredded Hash Browns, Southwest Style Hash Browns, Diced Potatoes with Onions, Home Style Slices, Red Potato Wedges, Rosemary and Garlic Red Potato Wedges and O’Brien Style.

***Contest Closed****”Sweet Heat” Cookbook and Jenkin’s Hell Fire Pepper Jelly

 

Jenkin’s Hell Fire Pepper Jelly is the BEST pepper jelly I have ever tasted!  This stuff is absolutely addictive!  I have always loved the sweet/hot taste of pepper jelly but the Hell Fire Pepper Jelly takes it over the top.  You better plan on ordering more than one jar because you will find yourself grabbing it to ramp up your cooking all of the time. 

We all have used pepper jelly the classic way —  as an appetizer, smothered over cream cheese and served with crackers.  Hell Fire Pepper Jelly is great that way, but it’s delicious and daring:

  •  on a turkey sandwich
  • smother on top of a hamburger or hot dog
  • pairs beautifully with a variety of cheeses
  • as a glaze or marinade for meats, salmon or shrimp
  • mix in with scrambled eggs and salmon
  • dollop on hard boiled eggs or on top of your favorite deviled eggs

And the list goes on and on.  In fact, Jenkins Jelly just released a new cookbook with 50 great recipes using the Hell Fire Pepper Jelly.  “Sweet Heat” was released in October and has beautiful color photographs throughout.  This cookbook is a love letter to the pleasures of Hell Fire Pepper Jelly. 

From cocktails to appetizers, mains and zesty desserts, “Sweet Heat” showcases the unique versatility of Hell Fire Pepper Jelly. 

Hillary Danner is an LA-based mom-turned-oreserves entrepreneur, who began canning and preserving to keep up with the constant bounty from her backyard fruit trees and peppers, both hot and cool.  She teamed up with longtime friend, Maria Newman and Chef Jared Levy and Jenkins Jellies was born.   

“Sweet Heat” is available online at Amazon.com. The SRP is $ 15.95

Visit www.jenkinsjellies.com for more information ( to order products, find a retailer or get recipes)   or find them on Facebook

One last note….just remember to give the Hell Fire Pepper Jelly a good stir before you use it.

One lucky make Life Special reader will WIN a jar of Jenkins Hell Fire Pepper Jelly and a copy of the “Sweet Heat” cookbook.
