Ironclad Review #2! Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice quick bread!

In the spirit of October my daughter and I decided to rendezvous at a good friends place. As we walked in Ashwini Srivatsan had a plan up her sleeve. She had been in the kitchen planning to bake something delicious. 30 minutes after catching up we got a whiff of delicious pumpkin spice aroma from her kitchen. In another 30 minutes she pulled it out of her oven and settled it to cool. As soon as it was cool she cut it and it was a race to get a slice as we all hoarded the kitchen.

The Ironclad Review for the Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice quick bread is an even bigger 4 knives out of 4. You can use the batter as bread, cookies, or even pancakes. What’s wonderful is that the batter is not too sweet, and the spices are even keeled throughout. It cooks fast and slides right off the pan for a clean finish. This will be a great addition for a Halloween get together. Spread the aroma of Pumpkin Spice in seconds and enjoy!!

Ironclad Review #1! Trader Joe’s Chicken-less Mandarin Orange Morsels

My vegetarian family needs more protein. In the 60’s if you were a vegetarian, protein meant the cheese off a slice of cheese pizza. Luckily in the past 10 years there has been a wave of Vegan & Vegetarian products in the market that will substitute meat protein. Some products are tasteless or dry and other products really satisfy!

The Ironclad Review for the Trader Joe’s Chicken-less Mandarin Orange Morsels is a big 3 knives out of 4. One of the better soy products on the market. Mostly organic, these morsels are easy to make and are similar to the taste of real chicken (for the carnivores turned herbivores). The orange sauce keeps the soy protein moist and chewy. Finally, with a couple bites you can fill your protein intake for the day. The only drawback is that the bag only portions for 1 person/1 meal. (9.25 ounces for $2.99). Viva la Veg!
