Pacific foods pumpkin puree

My wife always tries to cook healthy for us when she can. That even includes our desserts. A number of times, she’s made us brownies that are fortified with… black beans. Yeah, beans. Thing is, you can’t even tell the difference! (Though to be fair… you can “smell” the difference a little later on.)

She just loves trying out new recipes, especially those that are super simple. There’s one cake recipe she was dying to make that basically mixes a box of cake mix with pumpkin puree. You don’t add anything else. No oil. No eggs. No extra sugar. Hey, even a guy like me could do that without screwing it up, right?

So when I just received a few cartons from Pacific Foods, I was real excited to see pumpkin puree as one of them! (The other two were a salt-free chicken stock and a jellied cranberry sauce.) So you better believe we’ll be making a pumpkiny Angel Food Cake this weekend to test that one out. Great idea for a holiday dessert too. Simple to make and pretty unique!

Allie actually buys Pacific Foods chicken stock regularly and cooks our kids’ dinners in them. Instead of boiling chicken in water, she’ll boil chicken breasts in chicken stock, infusing it with even more flavor. The kids love it.

What I really love about the Pacific Foods items is that they come in boxes, not cans. Cans are more of a pain to open and they just don’t taste as good. Plus, it doesn’t hurt as much when I drop a box on my foot as opposed to a metal can!
