Holiday Contest and Sweeps is pleased to bring you another Country Bob's  Sauce Giveaway. Country Bob's is the leader when it comes to mouth watering  sauces that create a masterpiece when used on your meats and poultry. With Summer now upon us, it's time to fire up the Barbecue and create some amazing  dishes with Country Bob's Sauces and Seasoning. 

Let's take a trip back in history and let you know how much pride is taken in each and every bottle of sauce they produce.

Where do great products come from? Usually they are the result of much time being exerted and a tremendous amount of love being invested. At that point you can say, “That’s mine! I made that.” That’s the way Country Bob Edson created his All Purpose Sauce.

In 1968 Country Bob perfected the sauce of his dreams. After years of giving the sauce to friends and family he began to sell it in 1977. The reaction was overwhelming just as it is today. Almost everyone who tries Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce becomes a lifelong user. And why not, it is the perfect complement to practically any meal set on your table.

It was actually October of 1982 when Country Bob, Inc. became the company, which remains today. Bob Edson, Terry Edson, Al Malekovic and Reed Malekovic formed a corporation with equal ownership. Since that time Country Bob’s distribution has magnified regionally in all directions from our corporate office located in Centralia, Illinois. Even with the tremendous growth we have not forgotten where we came from, continuing in our relentless pursuit of product excellence.

Along with our All Purpose Sauce we have expanded our product line to include BBQ Sauce and Seasoning Salt as well as Apple Chipotle and Honey Habanero All Purpose Sauce and the newest member to the family Country Bob’s Marinade. With our fully automated bottling line we also have the capability of producing Private Label products for stores or restaurants.

It would be nice if we could claim responsibility for the success of the company, however, credit must be given where credit is due. Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” We have placed true ownership of Country Bob, Inc. in the hands of God. “Christ is our CEO” and He is an Awesome Boss!

Country Bob's Sauces you will be amazed at the flavor. Below are recipes that you
can use all year long. We love Country Bob's at our house!

Zucchin-Raisin Muffins Made in Silicone Muffin Cups ~ #bestsiliconebakingcups

I love to bake and one of my favorite things to bake are muffins. There are just so many kinds , flavors, sizes, well, just a lot of different ones to try.

Galley Essentials has a fun set of Silicone Baking Cups that make baking muffins very colorful and very green. They are...
  • eco-friendly, reusable silicone baking cups 
  • made of flexible silicone so they peel away easily from cupcakes and muffins 
  • BPA free and Food Grade silicone 
  • Versatile and can be used for all kinds of baked treats (cupcakes, muffins, mini cheesecakes) and frozen treats as well 
  • safe temperature range of -40F-446F 
  • silicone helps bake evenly 
  • super easy to clean 
  • comes in a pack of 12 (4 bright colors)
I love these little baking cups. They are so easy to use, bright and colorful and so easy to clean up. Plus I am not throwing out paper wrappers every time I bake muffins for a gathering or special event.

Here's a yummy recipe for you using the baking cups.

Carrot-Raisin Muffins or Zucchini-Raisin Muffins 

½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup butter, softened
2 eggs
½ cup raisins
½ cup sour cream
½ cup vegetable oil
1 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup carrots or zucchini, shredded
½ cup unsweetened coconut, flaked (optional)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter together until they are well mixed (about 2 minutes). Add sour cream, oil, and eggs. Beat egg mixture until it is well mixed. Stir in carrots, optional coconut, and raisins by hand. In a medium-sized bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add flour mixture to sour cream mixture and stir to blend.

Spoon mixture into greased muffin tins, unless using silicone cups; no need to grease them. Bake for about 20 minutes, until slightly browned.

Optional: Make a loaf of bread instead. Follow the same recipe  only placing the dough in a greased and floured bread pan. Bake for 55-60 Minutes.

My family loves these little muffins and bread!

I love using silicone baking cups. Whatever I put in them comes out so easily, no sticking, no leaving small pieces behind, no need to run a knife around the edge to loosen. They are wonderful.

I think this colorful set of Gallery Essentials Silicone Baking Cups would be a great addition to anyone's kitchen.

You can purchase the Gallery Essentials Silicone Baking Cups HERE! Use the code TOM25OFF to save $3 off your purchase price!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Priority Chef Dual Julienne and Vegetable Peeler Is A Must-Have For Every Kitchen

I love having good kitchen gadgets. Good gadgets make work in the kitchen easier, faster and more consistent. Bad tools can increase the odds of having a bad time and a bad mood. No one wants an unhappy cook!

Priority Chef has a great Dual Julienne and Vegetable Peeler that is a very good gadget to have in the kitchen. Here's a little about it from Priority Chef:
The Priority Chef dual julienne and vegetable peeler has ultra sharp blades and can peel vegetables quicker than ever. One side of the kitchen tool has a vegetable peeler that can peel in both directions. The other side has a julienne tool that create julienned vegetables in seconds. The tool is made of stainless steel and is dishwasher safe, although we do recommend washing by hand. Included with every purchase is an eBook giving instructions and also a list of recipes to get started.

The Peeler is a sturdy tool with a great handle to grip. It fits in your hand easily and comfortably. That's important, especially when you have to peel quite a few things for a meal.

Both blades, the peeler and julienne, are super sharp and cut easily and quickly through both soft foods (zucchini) and harder (potatoes).  It was easy to peel everything and then just flip the peeler over and julienne. I found holding some vegetables on a cutting board with a fork easier to julienne than just holding them. That way you can peel longer strips without having to maneuver your hand out of the way.

The julienne peeler was a lot of fun to experiment with. We love it now to make fun fried potato nests with. They are easy to make. You julienne your potato for each person letting all the "strings" lay in a pile on the counter. Heat a small bit of oil in a pan and carefully lay the pile of potato in the oil. Using a spatula flatten the potatoes making sort of a pancake with the whole amount. Cook to golden brown on both sides (flipping carefully) and then drain on paper towel. It's great to place under a special cut of meat or even just a burger.

The peeler worked great on fruit too. Peeling an apple takes no time now with the size of the blade and with how wonderfully sharp it is. it was fun to julienne too, making a yummy apple salad.

The ebook that comes with it is really nice and does give you clear instructions on how to use the peeler in the best way and inspirations for foods to prepare with it.

I think this Priority Chef Dual Peeler will be a tool I have for a long time. It is solidly built and works like it will hold up from repeated use. And it comes with a money back guarantee if you are not 100% satisfied, so you can buy with confidence.

You can buy your own Priority Chef Dual Peeler HERE!
