Tantillo Foods Review & Giveaway!

First off, I feel like I have neglected this poor blog.  Ok.  There's no "I feel like".  I really have neglected this blog.  I'm pretty sure y'all understand why.  Everything happened with Kate and I just didn't have time to post reviews/ giveaways timely so I stopped accepting offers.

However, when I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing Tantillo Food products (and giving some yummy things away to y'all), I couldn't say no.

Why?

Well, because I love food.  Especially high quality food!  And because this wonderful company immediately said Kate came first when we got her original transplant schedule and I was scrambling to get everything ready for her hospital stay.  They were adamant that my priorities be with Kate and told me not to worry about the review if I didn't have time.  Now that?  That's a company I want help promote!

So, on to the yummy stuff!

I received a goodie box filled to the brim with amazing Tantillo products!  I unloaded it all to see what I had and immediately Alex was all "what's this?  When are you going to cook something?". 


And so I whipped something up!  I used the Tantillo Tomato Basil Sauce and made a quick, easy, delicious baked pasta dish for Alex and I.  I made sure to keep some noodles and sauce out for Kate (since she can't eat cheese which I included in our dish) so she could enjoy her first taste of spaghetti!

And enjoy it she did!

Alex and I enjoyed our dinner just as much!  We also enjoyed our dessert - strawberries drizzled in Balsamic Bliss! 


The Balsamic Bliss is so good that I made a special trip to the grocery for heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil so I has something else to use it on.  I even baked chicken and used the Balsamic Bliss as a glaze.  I pretty much put it on anything I could think of because I am borderline obsessed with it.

It is amazing!

I had several other goodies to try (lemon juice, lime juice, olive oil) and everything was amazing quality and delicious!  I know I will be a repeat customer!

One of y'all will also get to experience the yumminess because Tantillo's is giving a lovely reader a gift basket filled with their products!

    I visited Tantillo's website and, omg, the Balsamic Bliss looks AMAZING! I'm obsessed with Balsamic Vinegar/Vinaigrette/etc. so I definitely need to try that. Also, the Garlic Dipping Oil sounds SO good! And I'm sure their sauces are all delish!
