i heart keenwah. I really do!


A few weeks ago, I was contacted by this company to try their product.  This isn’t that uncommon being a food blogger.  So it arrived and I remember exactly when I tried it… Black Friday.  The day after Thanksgiving when I was trying to be “oh-so-good” with the eating after the food-fest just the day prior.  We had just completed all of our Christmas decorating and I needed a snack.  BAM!  These popped into my head and I tore into the first bag (they sent me two).  I tried the almond first, my fave, and immediately I was in love!  I love quinoa!!!  It is one of the most perfect foods. Quinoa is the only grain that is a complete source of protein and the same kind of protein found in meat & dairy.  

The little delights taste like a quinoa brittle.  Sweet but not overly sweet.  Crunchy.  Just perfection!  I’m a huge quinoa fan and these honestly have my name written all over them! Here is the dietary information (also gluten free):


And here is a pick of what these little delights look like:

Outta the Ballpark BBQ Pulled Chicken.

This post is sponsored by Outta the Ballpark BBQ sauce.  They generously sent me four bottles of their incredibly clean bbq sauce and I had to whip up a great lip smacking recipe that the family would love AND that was easy.  Lots of appointments this week after school so a crock pot recipe was necessary.  Along with them sharing BBQ sauce with me – they are going to share some with you guys!  2 bottles (spicy and regular) and two mini bottles (spicy and regular) to one fan of Knead to Cook’s Facebook page and who lives in the 48 contiguous states.

To enter:  Leave a comment on this post or on this post on Facebook to enter.  Be a fan of Knead to Cook and Outta the Ballpark BBQ facebook pages.  Reside in the 48 contiguous states.  A random winner will be selected on Thursday, October 5th at 9 pm EST.  The winner must email [email protected] to provide their shipping address within 48 hours of being announced.  If the winner fails to do that, another winner will be selected.  

This recipe is super easy!


1 bottle of Outta the Ballpark bbq sauce
1/3 cup of chicken broth
6 chicken breasts
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of ground cumin

Place all of your ingredients into your crock pot.  Turn to the low setting and give all of the ingredients a good stir.  Cover and let cook for 4 – 6 hours.  Remove and place the chicken in a bowl.  With two forks, shred the meat.  Ladle some of the sauce over top of the chicken and serve on a bun.  Enjoy!

Virtual Cocktail Party Giveways.

I’ve been very blessed in my life with friends who support me & my dreams.  About a year ago I got the crazy idea that I wanted to start a food blog sharing my recipes, ideas etc. with my friends.  I had no idea that my friend circle would become so large with each one of you.  My friends at have always been willing to help me with my success in this endeavor by giving me gift certificates to share with Knead to Cook fans.  They tirelessly support my website.  For all of their support, I’m eternally indebted.

I always feel like if I’m able, I’m happy to reciprocate and support my friends and their endeavors.  My sweet friend Leslie has become a Stella & Dot jewelry rep and we knew instantly that we needed to throw a party and invite all my friends, this includes YOU!

Because all of you can’t physically be at my house for our jewelry and cheese/wine cocktail party Wednesday night – I thought it would be fun to host a virtual party and do some fun giveaways.  Yes, I know, part of this has nothing to do with food but half of it does so bear with me.  Here’s how it’s going to work…

Wednesday, July 18th from 7-9 p.m. EST Knead to Cook will be hosting a virtual cocktail party with cheeses/crackers/sausages from our friends at  Jewelry will be on display (I’ll be updating pics to my website/twitter/FB) from Stella & Dot.

We will be giving away 2 gift certificates – one for $40 for and one for $40 for Stella & Dot.  How do you enter?  You need to leave a comment or like on the link that I will share with you promptly at 7 pm EST on my FB page Wednesday, July 18th.  That’s it!  A comment or a like.  If you buy something from the link to Stella and Dot (during that two hours) you will receive an extra entry per item purchased.  But again – NO purchase is necessary to be entered – just a like or a comment on the link that I post to my party. is sending me wonderful cheeses/crackers/sausages to share with my friends who attend the party.  They aren’t leaving my virtual friends out in the cold (well, scratch that – I mean heat).  They are giving me a discount code for the products & shipping on every item that we have at our cocktail party just for you attending the virtual party.

Again, all you need to do is leave a comment on the FB posting I share at 7 pm EST on Wednesday, July 18th.  Two gift certificates will be given out, each $40, to two lucky winners. will select the winners.  Winners will be announced at 9:30 pm EST on July 18th.  The winners must email me at [email protected] within 48 hours to claim your prize or a new winner will be selected.   

The discount code for igourmet is RR78 for 15% off your entire order.  This code is good for one week till July 25th.

The link to view the Stella and Dot jewelry that is featured tonight is below – please click Stella and Dot party!

Stella and Dot party! 

Pictures will shared throughout the evening of both the food and the jewelry so you feel like you’re right here with us partying.  Can’t wait for Wednesday night!!

Whether shopping to stock your kitchen, prepare for a party or to find that elusive, unique gift, is a destination that offers a terrific line of gourmet products that can be reached from the comfort of your home or office.



And some information on The Mystic Blue Spice Company:

One of my favorites!  I discovered Trish on Facebook and have loved her products ever since.  Here’s her company information:

The Mystic Blue Spice Company is owned and operated by myself and my husband. We are located in the small town of Buckeye, Arizona where we both grew up. I have always loved food, cooking food, looking at food, thinking about food, you name it and I love it when it comes to food. So, with no surprise to my family, this venture started for me some time ago when I started looking for cooking blends that were “just herbs and spices”. I didn’t have a lot of luck with that as many of you probably know already. I just was not a fan of the mystery spices and I wanted to know what I was putting in my food, so I starting making my own blends to use at home.

With much encouragement from my friends and family, I decided to take the next step. That next step is sharing all my wonderful 100% natural blends with all of you. Some are traditional in flavor and others are my interpretation of the traditional, but one thing is for sure….your gonna love them! I never use MSG, artificail flavors, colors, fillers or preservatives and I only use sea salt sparingly in some recipes as a natural anti-caking agent. That being said, since our blends are 100% Natural they will clump after they settle for a bit. Just shake and tap them on a hard surface before you use them. Most folk don’t know that the blends you find in the store contain chemicals that contain a “free flowing agent” to prevent clumping. Also, all products are made in small batches and packaged by me in 4oz wide mouth cobalt blue jars (1/2cup) or 8oz resealable bags (1cup) using single herbs and spices purchased in bulk from a local business here in Arizona, whenever possible.


And some information on The Deal Girls:

The best of the daily online deals from all across the web! Including sites like Amazon, Groupon and many, many others!

Okay so here are the details & the not-so-fine print.

1.  The random drawing will take place on Father’s Day, June 17th and announced at 9 PM EST.

2.  To be entered, you must be a fan of Knead to Cook’s Facebook page.  Although not required, we would hope that you would like igourmet, Mystic Blue Spice Company and The Deal Girls Facebook pages as well, as they are so nice to contribute to this giveaway.

3.  The random winner will be selected by 8 PM EST on June 17th.  Therefore, you must be a fan at that time.

4.  The gift certificate from igourmet will be emailed to the winner as it’s an e-gift certificate.  The spices and gift card, grilling papers and seasoning will all be shipped by the individual companies to the winner’s address.

5.  The winner must email [email protected] within 48 hours of his/her name being announced on Sunday, June 17th at 9 PM EST.  If the winner does not contact me, a new winner will be randomly selected and announced Wednesday, June 20th, 2012 @ 9 PM EST.
