I was recently asked by MediaGuest if I would be interested in reviewing something that is definitely not book related and I when I saw that it was Shirley J's Whisk Bliss I quickly jumped at the chance because if you know me, you know that I love trying new products and especially so if it involves food. I am so thankfully that my family is like that too in trying new food and recipes.
I grew up eating the basic stuff with parents who had no desire to experiment with food or recipes. Even though I tried several times so I always vowed that when I left I wouldn't be like that and honestly I am not I love trying new things so I was thrilled to try this out.
When we got the package in the mail we sat down to figure out what to make with it. On the back of the package it gives three recipes you can make with it and they are Pasta Alfredo, Old-Fashioned Gravy and Broccoli and Cheddar soup. All three sounded really good but we finally were able to decide on the Broccoli and Cheddar soup.

I think I might have swayed the decision only because I had just bought some fresh broccoli a few days before getting this in the mail so what perfect way to use up the broccoli and this. Plus we always have a ton of cheese in the house because this is one of our favorite snacks in the afternoon.
All the recipes were easy to make and there was nothing complicated about them because its one package of the Whisk Bliss with two cups of water then depending on what you are making will depend on what you add.
For the Broccoli and Cheddar soup I ended up adding more broccoli then the recipe called for and I used mild cheddar cheese (marble) in the soup and sprinkled on top and it tasted delicious. I made this for supper and there was enough to feed three people. It was super easy and fast to make which was perfect because we had plans that evening and were in a rush to get out.
Seeing how quick and easy this was I quickly had to check out http://www.shirleyj.com/en/ and was pleasantly surprised at the site and how much they had to offer. I did find out that they are currently only in the US but if you are in Canada you can still order from them but shipping would be a little more then in the US but if you happen to visit the US you can always check the store locator to find out where the closest one is. I am seriously thinking of perhaps placing and order because there seems to be alot of neat productst that I would love to try.
Disclosure: Thanks to Shirley J and MediaGuest for sending me this product for review. I was not compensated in any other way, this is my honest and sincere review.
