Flavor Bombs for Cooking {Review + Giveaway}

Don’t think we’re back in college or high school and pulling a prank on a buddy because Flavor Bombs are not a joke. 🙂 These little packages are definitely the BOMB. Hee hee.

This product is definitely up my alley since I enjoy cooking and more specifically, meals that nowadays do not take too much time. I love using herbs, especially fresh herbs since I can get them for super cheap at our local store but I am still learning how to store them and therefore they spoil before I can use them.


Shockingly Delicious

What I Learned at My First Fancy Food Show

The woman at this booth was the first person I met at the show. Her name was Giovannina Bellino and she was so nice. She has these great little packets she’s put together so your job in the kitchen is easy. They’re called Flavor Bombs. Giovanina says they’re an all natural, fresh, frozen cooking base. You can use them as flavoring in dishes or as a base for pasta. They can start a dish or finish one. They come in five flavors: Soffrito, Mirepoix, Basil, Rosemary and Sage. They looked really good but I didn’t taste because it was too early for garlic. Now I wish I had. Here’s a link where you can order them and try them out: Flavorbombs

Chicken Piccata with Squash Noodles, featuring Flavor Bombs!

I used to love Chicken Francese until I learned that there was a little too much egg involved for my liking (amongst unhealthy nonsense). Chicken Piccata still has the same lemon flavor but breaded like a more typical cutlet (egg first, then flour or breadcrumbs). This Paleo-friendly version of the Italian classic is spot-on. The tomatoes add a bit of sweetness and some brightness to an otherwise monochromatic dish. We also recently tried Flavor Bombs which take some of the prep time out of cooking. I used the Soffritto (onion and garlic) bomb as part of the sauce for the squash noodles. Definitely a time saver when I made this meal in a crunch! Thanks to Gluten Free Follow Me for offering the awesome giveaway - can't wait to try the other varieties!

Save your leftovers

I don’t think I can describe this any better than Gio Bellino of Flavor Bombs:

“Get in the habit of freezing bits of meals! What I mean by that is saving small amounts of that fabulous gravy on your meatloaf, save the chicken fat you skim from your soup, save some of that bacon grease (especially the maple flavored mmmm), save some of that rub, marinade, herb blend. Saving small amounts of stuffing or vegetables will provide you with a savory mixture to either puree for a sauce or reuse as a breading. Having these elements in your freezer will make cooking future dishes a snap.”
