A Sprinkle Of This, A Dash Of That

You may remember our post in December about Ken having to lower his sodium intake due to high blood pressure and our involvement with Mrs. Dash through Mom Central. 

I'm pleased to report that though we haven't cut out salt entirely we are using the seasonings quite often and our meals are delicious, so much so that Ken doesn't have to add extra salt on nearly as many of his foods as he used to, and they are good enough that we don't have to make separate meals for the rest of the family since we all like the blends.

We get a lot more use out of some than others- our favorites being the Italian Medley, Original, Lemon Pepper, Garlic and Herb and the Table Blend.

Even if you have no need to lower your salt, Mrs. Dash products are tasty enough that everyone can and will enjoy them and there are several varieties so you can please everyone.

There are lots of recipes on the Mrs. Dash website, but what I am really thrilled about is that we don't have to give up our favorites, we just use the Mrs. Dash blends in place of the salt and other spices we used to use.

The most recent recipe that we adapted, using Mrs. Dash Italian Medley was our Sausage and Pepper Hoagies -  sausage and peppers in a rich tomato sauce served on hoagie buns and smothered with melted cheese.  We'll be adding the recipe on Divas Cuisine shortly with the Mrs. Dash because it has replaced our former seasonings and we won't be changing back.

Other faves are Slow Cooker Italian Beef made with Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb Blend; Sausage, Potato and Carrot Hotpot served with sauteed cabbage; any and all roasted or grilled veggies-  broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, potatoes, squash, you name it, we give a light coating with a light flavored oil such as extra virgin olive, sprinkle liberally with the Mrs. Dash blend of choice and grill or roast to perfection, and the Italian Medley in our Homemade Pizza w/quick 30 minute rise crust.

We'll be sharing some of the recipes from the Mrs. Dash site in subsequent posts, but we really wanted to let you know how easy it is to adapt your favorites since that was important to us.
