Today I'd like to tell you about a new company I was recently introduced to. Cynthia over at Feeding Big told me about Gourmet Warehouse in Hilton Head SC. I am SO glad she did.
After speaking with --- and choosing a few items I was interested in trying, they sent me a box of goodies and I mean goodies!
You can read all about their products, their 20+ years of experience and view their inventory at www.gourmetwarehouse.net . You won't be sorry. You will however have a difficult time picking just one or two.
First I tried the bourbon honey marinade. I love honey and my husband loves bourbon. I followed the instructions and let my chicken swim for a few hours, then baked it. That simple, nothing fancy about it, but WOW talk about flavor! We enjoyed this simple dish with green beans and some leftover crock pot baked sweet potatoes.
Next I tried the Sweet Heat BBQ Sauce, YES YES YES, I love bbq sauce, my husband is not a fan. I have to present it to him in a way that makes it less bbq sauce and more... recipe-ish. If that makes sense. Again, WOW. I love this stuff, really do and so did my husband. He said, "you know I'm not a fan of bbq sauce but this is really good." Now THAT is all the review you need.
The above photo and recipe will be on the blog tomorrow!! SUPER YUMMY!
Lastly I used the applewood smoked rub, this was exciting to me. However, due to circumstances beyond my control, I needed to use it on chicken, yet again. THAT my husband was not thrilled with, he would prefer beef, but I presented it to him in a way I knew he could not resist, wrapped in bacon. That's right! A man and his bacon, you can't go wrong. I rubbed the chicken with the applewood smoked rub, then wrapped it in - you guessed it - applewood smoked bacon, sprinkled a tad more on and popped it in the oven.
I would have grilled it but it decided to rain. Now, I'm not sure which one is my favorite.
The next day, I asked my husband, "out of the three products which one did you like best, not the recipes, but the products?"
His reply... "that's hard to say, they were all really good, but I'd have to go with the bbq sauce"
WHAT?!! We have a winner folks! Hands down my favorite and if the man who "isn't a fan of bbq sauce" says it's his favorite, that's one you should order.
I received these three products at no cost to myself in exchange for my honest opinion. I really can't say enough about how much we enjoyed each one and you can be sure you'll be seeing that bbq sauce in more recipes on this blog!
Thank you to Gourmet Warehouse for making sure wonderful products!
