Newman's Own Giveaway!!



So Friday I talked about Newman’s Own Organic.  You can read about that HERE

Please remember while reading this that while I was given these products free from Newman’s Own Organics, I wasn’t asked to give a dishonest opinion or a favorable one at all. While I loved most of the products that was sent to me, my taste my be different then yours.  This is my opinions.

Let me tell you what happened since then.  Saturday I had some people over for a House Party.  I decided to put some Newton’s Own Cookies out.  So I put out Fig NEWMAN’S and some chocolate with peanut butter in the center.  They were a hit!



I admit I really loved the fig Newman’s more then the chocolate with peanut butter.  While both was great the fig Newman’s went faster.  In fact my husband kept finding reasons to slip into the party to steal a couple. I told him afterwards if I had realized they were that good, I would’ve put a different type out.  HaHa just joking!  I know I can and will pick some more of these up next time I go to the store. 


Since I am watching what I am eating (I watch every bite I take)  These are safe snacking foods.  The ones I had were Low Fat but they come in 3 types:

  1. Low Fat
  2. Fat Free
  3. wheat free/dairy free

Now I would like to share with my my 4 favorite items out of what was sent to me.  I will announce my favorites and then will come the rafflecopter so you can enter to win 4 full sized items from Newman’s Own!  Here they are:

Homemade Blue Crab Alfredo with garlic and butter pan seared asparagus

1/2 lb linguine pasta
1/2 lb snow crab meat
4 Tbsp butter
4 Tbsp flour
2 c heavy cream or half and half
1/2 c  parmigiana, grated
Parsley flakes as garnish
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
 and butter pan seared asparagus
***I prepared my asparagus simply in butter and fresh chopped garlic, prepare to your liking***


1 Cook linguine according to package instructions. In medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour until the mixture has a "sandy" appearance. Do NOT allow it to change colors. After 45 to 60 seconds, whisk in half & half. Blend until a thick sauce forms. Stir in Parmesan and season to taste. Reduce heat to low. Add crab meat. Simmer until crab is heated through. Divide linguine into two bowls and pour even amounts of sauce over the top. Sprinkle cayenne pepper, to taste. Enjoy!
