Lawry's Review and Giveaway

I was recently given the opportunity by Lawry's through My Blog Spark to receive a Lawry´s "What´s Your Flavor" kit that includes a marinating dish, a set of skewers, Lawry´s two new marinades, as well as a sample of each of the four new Seasoning Mixes and a bottle of Lawry´s Seasoned Salt to try out.


Below is information that Lawry's shared with me:


People with a passion for food love expressing themselves through their cooking. Whether it´s marinades, seasoning mixes, or spice blends, Lawry´s products are a great way to express yourself in the kitchen by adding flavor to your favorite foods.


A recent Lawry´s survey found that your choice of flavor says more about you than you think. The nationwide poll looked at preferences for tart, spicy, sweet, and savory flavors and found that your choice can reveal some interesting aspects of your personality.


What´s your flavor?

Joyous Joiners - Tart Flavors - If you are one for tart flavors, you tend to be extremely happy overall, particularly with your family, finances, work/life balance and even your health. As a Joyous Joiners you are an extrovert who loves to entertain at home, find it very important to join in social events in your community and are active on the greatest number of social networking sites.

Self-Assured Adventurers - Spicy Flavors If your preference is for spicy flavors, consider yourself a confident, adventurous individual with a passion for travel and cooking. You are the biggest risk taker and although impulsive, you are not reckless - as a Self-Assured Adventurer you also tend to be resourceful, analytical, and most able to "look at the big picture."


The Sweet Lifers - Sweet Flavors - As a Sweet Lifer, home and family are close to your heart. You are the kindest and most loyal, although you probably wouldn´t admit that as you are also the most modest. As an individual that prefers sweeter flavors (honey and fruit-infused), you are influenced by your parents, enjoy family entertainment, and consider yourself spiritual.

The Conventionalists - Savory Flavors - Your passion for savory flavors shows you have an enthusiasm for politics, enjoy camping and hiking and love outdoor barbeques and American cuisine. Along with the other Conventionalists, you tend to be more introverted than the rest of the groups and often describe yourself as a homebody.

Lawry´s has something for you no matter what your flavor is, including two new marinades and four new Seasoning Mix packets that help create simple meals with an abundance of flavor:

Marinades

Szechuan Sweet & Sour BBQ gives meat a delicious sweet and sour flavor with a touch of Szechuan heat

Tuscan Sun-Dried Tomato includes extra virgin olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, sweet red bell peppers and the perfect blend of herbs

Seasoning Mixes

Asian Style Beef & Broccoli - This easy to prepare stir fry meal will remind your family of their favorite Asian restaurant. The dish combines beef, broccoli and seasonings with a hint of garlic. Serve it over rice and you have a complete, satisfying meal.

Chimichurri Burrito Casserole - Lawry´s gives the familiar Burrito casserole a new twist with this traditional Latin American sauce. With a few simple fresh ingredients, mealtime just got a lot more exciting.

Mediterranean Sundried Tomato & Garlic Chicken - Add a taste of the Mediterranean to your family´s casserole. This easy to bake casserole combines chicken, pasta, tomatoes and Feta cheese to easily make a flavorful meal any night of the week.

Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala with Garlic and Basil - Chicken Marsala is a restaurant favorite, but it might not make the menu at home. This effortless version comes together on your stovetop with just a few fresh ingredients. Flavorful garlic and basil gives this meal its own Tuscan flair, perfect for serving over pasta or rice.

What's my opinion?

I have tried the Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala with Garlic and Basil Seasoning Mix & the Szechuan Sweet & Sour BBQ and loved both. The Tuscan Style Chicken Marsala with Garlic and Basil was easy to put together. I used chicken cutlets (I got them at a really great price) and my local meat market had a great price on a pack of button mushrooms. My grandmother liked it so much that she wants me to buy the seasoning pack and make it again. My daughter's favorite was the Szechuan Sweet & Sour BBQ. I used chicken drumsticks and thighs and grilled them. This marinades in only 30 minutes and grilled nicely. The heat was not overwhelming (we do like things spicy around here though) and went nicely with chicken rice that I made to go on the side. I definately think they did well with the new seasons and marinades. I also loved the marinating dish which was a perfect size and helped when I was doing the chicken. I have not used the skewers yet, but like that they are stainless steel skewers.

Disclosure: I received the above kit, a kit to giveaway, and information from Lawry's through My Blog Spark. All opinions expressed in the review are mine and not influenced in my receiving the kit. For more info on my disclosure policy click here
