It’s creamy, elegant, moist, cheesy, and so very flavorful. I think next time I am going to add some sauted mushrooms in for a beautiful Mushroom Risotto. The box makes 6 servings and it comes out to 140 calories per serving.

I don’t know how they do it, but all of their mixes turn out the most fabulous results. They must have some pretty good test kitchen chefs !! Thanks again, Plentiful Pantry – you made another meal a success.

Pom Wonderful

Pomegranates ! One of my favorite fruits. They’re not well know, but they’re well worth getting to know.

While I love them, they are a HUGE pain to prep – just cutting into them leaves you with little stain marks all over the place – no matter how you do it, it can’t be done neatly. But between the unique taste and the healthy benefits, I don’t want to give up pomegranates….and in walks POM WONDERFUL πŸ™‚ This amazing beverage is 100% pomegranate juice…Already all cut up, all squeezed out, and all right there in a cute little bottle just waiting in the refrigerator for you πŸ™‚

Even without all the health benefits, I would drink this up like there’s no tomorrow. I love the rich, tart flavor. I think I am actually addicted to it πŸ˜‰ And then there’s the recipes….Pom is great for making reduction sauces, as a syrup, in frozen desserts, and as an ingredient in other beverages. It’s versatile, fun, healthy and flavorful.

Be on the lookout – I have about 3 POM recipes coming up for you shortly ! And grab yourself some POM WONDERFUL !

Teriyaki give the chicken a great glaze that then gets nice and crispy when you put it on the grill. The flavor is simple and that means this dish pairs up well with a myriad of different sides.
