From Huppie Mama
I was so happy to try another product from Fischer & Wieser after reviewing their delicious Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce and Whole Lemon & Fig Marmalade. This time, I got to sample the Garlic & Basil Spaghetti Sauce from the Mom’s Pasta Sauce collection. Usually I make my own tomato sauce from scratch, so I was a bit skeptical. I was instantly impressed!! This sauce is truly delicious. Unlike most jar sauces, you can actually see pieces of fresh basil leaves and garlic cloves. It tastes like sauce that has been simmering on a stovetop all day long, straight from the jar. This sauce would be great for homemade pizzas, pasta, and chicken parmigiana. Rather than using it straight from the jar, I wanted to show my readers a way to jazz up this sauce. Check out this recipe!

From Mrs. Happy Homemaker.
I love pork roasts. I love how you can put just about any flavor on it, and it just partners with it so well.
I make a lot of pork roasts for everyday meals, Sunday dinners, & special occasions. I always have one in the freezer ready to go because I purchase a lot of whole pork loins, and then have my local butcher slice it into individual roasts (and pork chops ) for me. Huge money saver! Continue reading

Case D. Fischer and Mark Wieser admit their first foray into publishing was at least 20 years in the making.
