Massell Bouillon Spinach Dip Recipe and Giveaway #massel @masselbouillon

Massel bouillon and seasoning sponsored this post and provided me with products to use in the recipes; however, the opinions I share in this post are my own.


We had dinner guests over last weekend which gave me the perfect opportunity to try the Spinach Dip from Massel Bouillon's website.


The Spinach Dip was a huge hit at our dinner party.  The guests were not Gluten Free and since I made a Gluten Free meal, I wanted to make sure it was super good so they wouldn't miss the Gluten.  Success, they both loved the dip!  One of them even scooped a big pile of it on her dinner plate and ate it with her chicken, green beans and mac n cheese!  I'd say she liked it. 

You can find the recipe here on Massel's website.  I modified it only slightly.  Here is how I made it.

What You Need:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 tbsp Massel Vegetable Better Bouillon granules
1 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese

How To Make It:
In a bowl mix together the cream cheese, sour cream and Massel granules.  Once combined add in the spinach.  Pour into a serving dish and top with parmesan cheese.  Place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving. 

I wrote about Massel's products in my blog post last week.  They really are very versatile and we have enjoyed them in many different meals.

3 Day Weekend Fun #glutenfree #massel @bumbalooza @ArdenneFarm @glutenfree4men @masselbouillon

This past weekend was awesome!  It is strange how having 3 days off of work and together with family can feel like a vacation.  Friday we stayed home and played with the kiddos at a local museum.  Then we cleaned the house for dinner guest.  Sometimes I invite people over for dinner just so I have an excuse to clean the house.  Anyone else do that?

The menu was all Gluten Free and super yummy!
Appetizer - Spinach Dip using Massell Bouillon, I'll post the recipe tomorrow.  PS it rocked!
Main Dish - Grilled BBQ chicken with Gluten Free for Men sauce, I'll be doing a giveaway soon for a bottle of this yummy stuff!
Sides - Crock Pot Mac n Cheese and green beans
Dessert - Cookies and Cream cake using Bumbalooza's mix, wow is all I can say!

The dinner was a huge success!  Our guests loved the meal and were very impressed it was all Gluten Free.  Woot!



Saturday was more Easter fun with egg hunts, craft adventures and family time at home.

Sunday we went to church and had a great Easter service.  Then we went to Hubby's family's house for a big meal.  The Gluten Free options were abounding!  I filled my plate with food and yes I did fill my plate up first to avoid cross contamination.  

I brought ranch potatoes (recipe in my cookbook page 68), GF stuffing and oatmeal cookie sandwiches using Ardenne Farms cookie mix.  These were a huge hit and disappeared quickly!

Needless to say it was an epic food weekend.  I even made myself go for a 3.5 mile run Saturday to make up for all my eating.

Whoopie Pie Heaven from Inglorious Monk #glutenfree @Imonkbakery

If whoopie pies rained down from heaven they would taste like the ones from Inglorious Monk Bakery.  These cats know how to make wicked awesome Gluten Free treats!  

Our family received a box of goodies to try.  The package included a variety of the Whoopie Bites that the kiddos devoured!  I think it took them .4 seconds to inhale them and ask for more.  


We also received the full size Have a Heart Chocolate Dipped Pie, Raspberry Pie and a Lemon Pie.  It is really hard to say which was our favorite overall, they are all that good!  I lean toward the raspberry and hubby liked the lemon.  They have a full product line to include Whoppie Cakes!

All of the baked goodies from Inglorious Monk Bakery are Gluten Free, dairy free, egg free, non-GMO, peanut free, tree nut free, and soy free.  Even though the pies are free-from so many things they will still knock your socks off.  I could eat these daily and be happy for the rest of my life.

You can buy them online from their online store. 

Enjoy!

Disclaimer: I was given the products to try.  The opinions are my own.

Massel Bouillon Cubes #glutenfree #massel @masselbouillon

Massel bouillon and seasoning sponsored this post and provided me with products to use in the recipes; however, the opinions I share in this post are my own.

When I was sick as a child I remember my mom making me warm soup to sip on while I watched cartoons.  Now as an adult I want the same thing when I'm sick to help me feel better.  A few weeks ago we had a nasty bug in our house and the only thing I wanted was soup.  Massel bouillon cubes to the rescue!  I had recently received some awesome products from Massel and the timing could not have been better!  I ate 3 bowls of their delicious chicken style broth in one afternoon.  It was just what I needed to feel better.  And yes I did watch cartoons while I sipped my soup, however that was due to the kiddos. 

I have since used the Massel products in a number of other recipes. We've enjoyed them in tasty quinoa, to add flavor to a chicken skillet dish, in a stir fry and in the slow cooker.  I really appreciate the versatility of these products.  

About the company
Massel started in Australia 30 years ago as the first all vegetable bouillon and first bouillon with no added MSG.  They use premium vegetables and herbs in their mixes.   They have a huge product offering that is suitable for people with many different dietary restrictions! 

Here is the list right from their website!



I need to add they are GMO free and they use a dedicated Gluten Free facility so their is no risk of cross contamination!  

They even have salt reduced varieties if that is something you need in your diet.

This bouillon brings so much flavor to any dish.  Here is a slow cooker recipe I created with their products.
Massel Pork Loin

What You Need:
3 lb pork loin
2 tbsp GF season salt
2 Massel 7's Vegetable Bouillon Cubes
1 1/2 cups water

How To Make It:
Season all sides of the pork loin with your GF season salt.  Place pork in a slow cooker, drop in the Massel bouillon cubes and pour in the water.  Cook low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.

We enjoyed ours with some steamed vegetables and rice.  We poured the broth from the slow cooker on the pork and rice.  It was very juicy and flavorful.

I decided to create a very basic recipe to showcase the Massel cubes and was very pleased with the result.  You can find other recipes on their website.   The spinach dip caught my eye.  Next dinner party will include that dip! 

You can purchase Massel products online as well as at retail stores.  You can go here to find the closest location to you.  

I will also be doing a giveaway later this month with Massel, so stay tuned!
