Potato, Patata – However You Dice ‘em, They’re Delicious!

When you’re looking for versatile and convenient food items, potatoes are at the top of our list. Whether it’s the frozen, diced variety or refrigerated hash browns, the year-round quality and freshness of these products is unbeatable! Better yet, with frozen and refrigerated options, you’ll never have to peel, chop, dice or slice a potato ever again. Plus, you don’t even need to remember to thaw them ahead of time because they can go straight from the bag to a skillet.

Fresh Flavors for Spring Entertaining

It’s spring – and here in the Northeast the flowers are starting to bloom, grass is getting greener, trees are budding and it should be getting warmer (we are still waiting for that phenomenon!)  Spring also brings many celebratory occasions – Mother’s Day, graduation celebrations, wedding showers and lots more oppotunities for entertaining.  It’s the perfect time to get creative, but keep it simple in the kitchen for family and friends.

The fresh flavors of delicious veggies just scream spring, and their health benefits make them even more appealing! If you are entertaining, there are no better vegetables to feature in an appetizer, soup, snack, side dish or entree than freshly frozen ones, picked at their peak and locked full of nutrients, including asparagus, broccoli and even spinach!

Earth Day

Go Green this Earth Day – and Every Day!

It’s April 22nd, which you may or may not know as Earth Day! Responding to global warming and other environmental degradation, Gaylord Nelson (a Wisconsin Senator) called for an environmental teach-in to be held on April 22, 1970. This Earth Day involved over 2,000 colleges and universities and roughly 10,000 primary and secondary schools. The main purpose of the day was to promote environment awareness and reform. Earth Day is intended for all of us to recognize how we influence our limited resources from our planet[1].
