Being a parent, we sometimes find it hard to come up with new ideas when cooking. I can go through my cookbooks and I find myself cooking the same recipes over and over again. Personally, I love trying new things, and I love finding products that make trying new recipes to cook for the family, easier. Recently I was given the chance to review the new Progresso Recipe Starters. I was sent the Creamy Portabella Mushroom and the Creamy Three Cheese. With the Creamy Three Cheese, I was able to create an amazing home made mac and cheese casserole that everyone loved, and with the Creamy Portabella Mushroom, I was able to make a very tasty and creamy beef stroganoff. I found that using these two Recipe Starters from Progresso to be a very smart move, so after trying the two I was sent, I went on and decided to give the other starters a try as well. A dish that we tried that turned out to be a huge hit was the Crispy Garlic-Parmesan Chicken recipe that I got off of the Progresso Recipe Starters site, in which I used the Creamy Parmesan Basil. In all, we found that using the Progresso Recipe Starters helped with those school night meals, when we dont have the time to sit down and come up with a dish. Or when we are looking for something that is easy to prepare and cook and that the whole family enjoys. So with the back to school season in full swing, and those nights of what to cook here, give the Progresso Recipe Starters a try!
