Pasta Chips Review & Giveaway

pastachips1

I am a total snacker. There are always chips, crackers, fruits, and cookies on hand in my kitchen. So when the opportunity arose to try Pasta Chips, I jumped on it. The kind folks at Pasta Chips.com freely sent me over the five flavors of the Pasta Chips: Sea Salt, Alfredo, Marinara, Garlic Olive Oil, and Spicy Tomato Herb and below is my personal opinion of each one. They also want to send 3 of my readers the same gift box of Pasta Chips! Make sure to enter the giveaway below!

The Pasta Chips are made of semolina flour and oven-baked thin. It’s like a cracker chip that is full of flavor. A big plus is that they have 60% less fat than regular potato chips. So I didn’t feel guilty at all when I devoured the bag of Marinara Pasta Chips! They are also low in cholesterol, saturated fat, and have 120 calories per serving!

Pasta Chips

The box was all fancy wrapped protecting the deliciousness inside. The kind folks sent me over the five flavors of the Pasta Chips: Sea Salt, Alfredo, Marinara, Garlic Olive Oil, and Spicy Tomato Herb. Each different flavor of chips are inspired by seasonings from a region in Italy.  Here is my honest review of each flavor:

Pasta Chips Marinara
Marinara: My favorite of all five. The chips were full of yummy spices that were inspired by Naples. They have a nice tomato tang to it but not heavy. Completely addicting and could easily be eaten by itself…on the couch…watching tv…for breakfast.

 
 

Pasta Chips Sea Salt
Sea Salt: These reminded me of a wheat thin. They are simple yet delicious. Since they are the plainest of all the chip flavors, they are perfect to pair with dips like hummus, french onion, or even some slices of cheese. The inspirational region is that of Puglia.

 
 

Pasta Chips Garlic Olive Oil
Garlic Olive Oil: If you love garlic than these are definitely for you. The Italian region of Abruzzo is the taste profile region of these pasta chips. At first the garlic was a bit overwhelming for me, too strong for a chip. But I tried again the next day after seeing my DH devour half the bag. They aren’t bad at all, once you know the garlic level you are about to enter.

 
 

Pasta Chips Alfredo
Alfredo: The actual flavor of Alfredo go lost somewhere before entering these pasta chips. Inspired by Rome, the spices lacked any creamy cheese flavor it was going after. The initial taste was not appealing and the powdered coating was a bit too salty for me.

 
 

Pasta Chips Spicy Tomato Herb
Spicy Tomato Herb: My least favorite of them all. They have a strong tangy flavor that wasn’t spicy nor tomato. It is a bit off putting and lingers in your mouth. It really fell flat for me and not wanting more of this flavor from Calabria.

 
 

What I like you may not, and what I didn’t enjoy, you may love! So give these a try and enter below to win your own box of the 5 flavors of Pasta Chips.

Back to Life, Back to Reality

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

Last month I had the privilege of volunteering at a kitchen on a building project for two weeks. Back-to-back-to-back thirteen hour days are no joke! Us local volunteers spent our hours prepping for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. After serving the meals we would do clean up. My DH was on dish duty for the days he was able to take off of his real job! It was hard work but  whole lot of fun. We made friends with some great people and ate some pretty delicious food everyday. Each day I saw these great recipes being prepped and cooked, and it made me think of how much I have missed creating easy recipes, cooking them up, and posting them here on CookEatDelicious.com. It was the ‘kick in the butt’ I needed to get back on track.

Since DH & I have moved back to the USA six months ago, we have been busy. Busy as volunteer teachers, busy with adjusting to life back in the states, and busy with catching up with family and friends. Life is not as simple as it was in Costa Rica. I certainly do miss the walking, the laid back lifestyle, and, of course, the beach! It was an amazing cultural experience to live in the town of Puerto Limon for two years and it will definitely be missed. But we are back to living in Cali, back to life, back to reality. So CookEatDelicious! is back too. We have some great giveaways coming up in the next few weeks and some really delicious easy recipes. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Tumblr for all of our behind the scene recipes and details on the delicious giveaways.

Garlic Crab Linguine

Garlic Crab Linguine (13)

I am all for easy recipes. And if I can make a delicious pasta dinner in under 15 minutes, then I am sold! This crab recipe does just that. In the time it takes to boil the pasta, you are done cooking the sauce. I use lump crab in this recipe and it is just a matter of heating the crab meat in the sauce and tossing in the pasta.

Delicious Rating: Butter…Garlic…Crab…Pasta…really?! Are you seriously wondering if you should cook up this recipe?! GO! Buy the ingredients and make this up for dinner tonight!!!

Banana Muffins

Banana MuffinsBreakfast is my lazy meal. I don’t feel like cooking anything in the morning and I am most likely running out the door anyways, so who has time for stacks of pancakes, bacon, eggs, fruit salad, and all that good stuff that I would love to eat instead of a handful of grapes? The only solution I have found are muffins. Fresh muffins, baked up on a Sunday afternoon, ready for the week. Just pop one of the mellow muffins into the microwave for a good 10 seconds and bam! You have a warm ready to go breakfast, with the handful of grapes. The easiest muffin recipe I know is for Banana Muffins. One bowl and a spatula is all you need to prepare the batter and then bake in a muffin tin. Just wait until some overly ripe bananas fall into your lap and you are good to go. Overly ripe bananas are best to use over unripe, or ripe bananas because the banana flavor is much more pronounced and the mushy gushy banana lends to a moister muffin. (Moister is a weird word if you keep saying it over & over)

Delicious Rating: Yummy yummy in my tummy. Moist, doesn’t fall apart on you, filling breakfast, and just delicious. I love how you can individually wrap them in saran or foil and freeze them. Pop them out and let the muffin come to room temp in about 5 minutes and heat up in the microwave. They taste like they came fresh out of the oven. Easy recipe, perfect for breakfast.
