 Disclaimer- This post was sponsored by Good Cook as part of the Kitchen Expert Blogger program.  I received the items mentioned below to facilitate my post but all opinions are 100% my own.


Good Cook challenged bloggers to create a comfort food, easy dinner dish and gave us each 5 tools to choose from to incorporate using at least 2 in our dish.
good cook toolsHere’s what we received:  SMART Ice cream scoopFlip Measuring spoonSafe-cut Can OpenerEgg Separator, and Pot Clip Holder.  I love all these tools but for this recipe I used the Flip Measuring Spoon, Safe-cut Can Opener, and Pot Clip Holder.

This is a simple recipe that definitely has that comfort food feeling.   There aren’t a lot of spices and seasonings in it as I was making it for my family and my children like food to be pretty simple.  If I was just making it for my husband and myself I would add some other spices.  Instead hubby and I tend to add things to our own plates.  For this particular dish hubby and I both added Italian bread crumbs to our meals to give it a little more flavor.

2 pounds lean ground beef
1 package of wide egg noodles- COOKED
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 Tablespoons of dried chopped onion ( Hubby forgot to get the onion when he went grocery shopping so I pretended like I was on Cutthroat Kitchen and used what I had on hand)
1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
1 cup light sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 can of corn (feel free to throw in other veggies your family likes.  I want to try adding spinach next time)
salt and pepper to taste


1. Brown ground beef with dried onion and Italian seasoning and drain.

P12200954. Add sour cream.

P12201006. Simmer covered for 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
P12201027. Stir in cooked noodles.
P12201038. Stir in 3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and top with remaining 1/4 cup of cheese.
P12201069. Allow cheese to melt and serve.

Can you guess what I used each tool for?  I used the Flip Measuring Spoon to measure my seasoning and chopped dried onion (I LOVE how flexible the spoons are and how you can turn them inside out) , Safe-cut Can Opener to open the can of corn and pull the pull tab up on both cans of soup (a real nail saver plus the can opener leaves no rough edges), and Pot Clip Holder to hold my utensil so I didn’t have to dirty my stove or counter with it.

Sartori Gourmet Cheese Product Review

Disclosure- I received the cheese samples mentioned below to facilitate my review.  I received no other compensation and all opinions are 100% my own.
Hi, my name is Cori and I’m a cheese-a-holic!  Ok, I might not be THAT bad but I do love cheese.  I would usually turn down dessert for cheese.  I have turned my girls on to my cheese obsession, too.  I always say that I don’t have daughters, I have mice.  We like to go to our local cheese shop to purchase pieces of a few different types of  gourmet cheeses and a nice, warm baguette.  We then sit outside and enjoy our yummy snack.  When I was at the BlogHer convention last month I discovered a wonderful brand of gourmet cheese, Sartori and I knew I had to do a review post on their delicious cheeses.
Sartori is a family owned company that has been making  artisan cheeses since 1939.  They make 3 different varieties of cheeses- Sartori Reserve, Sartori Classic, and Sartori Limited Edition.  All 3 cheese varieties are all certified rBST-free thanks to their patron farmers.  That means that all of their cheese sold at retail are free of added hormones.  As a mom, that is important to me.

sartori cheese varietiesSartori makes many different varieties of cheeses that can be found at many local grocery stores or ordered on their website.  I received Rosemary and Olive Oil Asiago, Chai BellaVitano, Espresso BellaVitano, Montamore, and Extra Aged Fontina cheese to try with my family.  My favorite is the Espresso BellaVitano.  It is hand-rubbed with freshly roasted espresso and the cheese itself is sweet and creamy.  My younger daughter’s favorite is the award winning Rosemary and Olive Oil Asiago cheese.  It has a nutty flavor while the Rosemary and Olive Oil that is hand-rubbed on the outside gives it a savory note, too.  My older daughter’s favorite was the Montamore because it is sweet and creamy.  But let’s not forget the Chai BellaVitano and the Extra Aged Fontina.  The Chai BellaVitano is deliciously exotic with the spiciness of the Chai that is hand-rubbed on the outside of the sweet and creamy BellaVitano.  And the Extra Aged Fontina is another wonderfully delicious cheese by Sartori.  It is creamy with a deep, rich flavor and pairs well with fruits and nuts.  I put it on a baguette with some wet walnuts and it was amazing!
I love that Satori’s cheeses are made fresh using milk from local dairies.  It goes from milk to cheese in a matter of hours.  How’s that for fresh?!?!  They have a regimented milk quality program to ensure the freshest, highest quality milk available.  Many farms have been with Sartori for generations.  It’s not just the cheese that I love about Sartori, it’s the stories behind the company and it’s cheeses.  Sartori knows cheese.  There are currently only 55 Master Cheesemakers which requires a minimum of 10 years as a cheesemaker to even enter the 3 year advanced education program.  Sartori has 4 of those 55 Master Cheesemakers on staff.  In the last 5 years Sartori has won over 140 awards in the most prestigious national and international cheese competitions and after tasting their cheeses I can see why!
You can find Sartori on Facebook and Sartori on Twitter.
