Trying New Products from Manischewitz Review & Giveaway

Being married to a chef has been a blessing, because he always knows how to season foods to make them flavorful.  I do my best, but I will never be considered a chef!  My grandma taught me how to cook Southern style, but that is not always the healthiest way.  (But it does taste good)

When I am left to prepare dinner, I usually fall back on my usual sides like rice or mashed potatoes.  Chefy knows how to kick the flavor up, but I don't.  I have always been interested in trying new side dishes, but had no idea where to start.  Recently, I had the opportunity to review some new products from Manischewitz, and I was thrilled that the box included Couscous!  I had heard of it before, but had never tried it.  What was I waiting for?  

My review box included 2 different flavors of Couscous Mixes, and they were a huge hit with my family.  Both boxes were eaten within three days!

I cooked baked chicken and made the Roasted Garlic and Olive Oil Couscous as a side.  WOW!  Kat and I were shocked at how much we liked it!  It was not heavy at all and had a tasty and delicate texture.  We made grilled chicken two nights later and made the Mushroom and Olive Oil Couscous as a side, and it was as delicious as the other.  These have now been added to our grocery list. 

I also received Rye Tam Tam Crackers and the Wide Egg Noodles to review.  I am not a huge rye lover, but Chefy loved the Manischewitz® Rye Tam Tam Crackers .  He did share them with Kat, and they both are covering the crackers with cheese every chance they get! 
The Manischewitz® Wide Egg Noodles were delicious in my homemade chicken noodle soup.  I love the texture and overall taste of the noodle.  They are keepers for sure! 

Manischewitz has also just released the beta version of The Manischewitz Recipe & Holiday Guide.

I like so many of their products but I'd really like to try their creamy Horseradish Sauce with Dill - Gluten Free.

I would really love to try the rye crackers. I make an amazing ruben dip that I think they would go well with.
