Having trouble figuring out what to fix for dinner? Have somewhat picky eaters? Romano’s Macaroni Grill is your best bet! With the new line of dinner kits inspired by the chefs at Romano’s Macaroni Grill, you can now easily make four classic Italian meals at home.

The dinner kits include everything needed to create a high-quality meal in one box including premium ingredients such as such as vine-ripened tomatoes, select cooking wines, specialty herbs and 100% semolina pasta.   All you have to do is add one pound of chicken or your choice of proteins such as shrimp or Italian sausage. Varieties of Romano’s Macaroni Grill Restaurant Favorites dinner kits include Garlic & Herb Chicken Penne, Creamy Basil Parmesan Chicken & Pasta, Chicken Alfredo with Linguine and Chicken Marsala with Linguine.

Thanks to MyBlogSpark, Texas Banter was able to review Romano’s Macaroni Grill’s dinner kit.

Let’s start off with the Creamy Basil Chicken & Pasta. Luckily we had chicken in in the freezer. It was so easy to make and only took 20-30 minutes to prepare, depending on your stove.

It was so creamy and the sun-dried tomatoes and creamy sauce tasted like Heaven! Add some grated cheese (included in the dinner kit or add your own) and you’ve got the perfect meal!

While it may seem like it was made for mature tastes, kids will most likely enjoy it because the whole thing together was like an explosion of flavor!

Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce February 2, 2009

Al Malekovic sent me an e-mail asking if I would like to try some of Country Bob’s “All Purpose” Sauce- meaning Bar-B-Q! I said I would, and what would follow would be a review.

I have to say that is probably one of the best Bar-B-Q sauces I’ve ever tasted! Texans know Bar-B-Q and they know Bar-B-Q sauce so I was a little skeptical if it would have a distinct flavor that puts it above any others. Seeing as though the SuperBowl was yesterday and I had left over Bar-B-Q, I knew what I wanted to try it on.

So when it was time for lunch, I grabbed a few frozen pieces of sausage, a drumstick from a chicken, and my Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce. I cooked it up like you would any Bar-B-Q (except without the grill) and was ready to taste my meal.

Country Bob‘s All Purpose Sauce made SuperBowl leftovers so different! The sauce is tangy but has a sweet flavor because of molasses that is actually in the sauce. Once you but into a Polish sausage or a piece of chicken slathered with Country Bob’s, you know they are knowledgeable about their meat and sauces!

Al Malekovic  had this to say when asked what sets them apart from other competitors:

“It is truly an All Purpose Sauce. It can be used for cooking and flavoring, dipping (fries, onion rings, etc.), steak sauce, BBQ sauce.. … Probably my favorite recipe is the Meatloaf, Word’s Greatest Hamburger, Corn Pone Pie, Shrimp Dip…”, and the “Stuffed Green Pepper Soup (which can be found on the website… … I have been using it all kinds of recopies from chip dip to Wheat Chex Mix.”

Showing that it is truly versatile in it many uses, Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce is showing that it will become a leading brand in BBQ sauce!

You can find Country Bob’s at these fine retailers:

Alberton’s, Brookshire’s, Korger, and a few select Wal-Mart SuperCenters.  To find a retailer near you, visit www.countrybobs.com.
