Flipping for Newman’s Own

I recently received these jars of sauce from Newman’s Own and as part of being a FoodBuzz Featured Publisher.

I am anxious to try the Tomato & Basil and I’m sure Scott will love the Roasted Garlic

I have been craving bruschetta lately and I bet these sauces along with some fresh basil, and a few extra diced tomatoes would work perfectly.

Or I could try the Newman’s sauces as a pizza sauce.

Or I could use it over “Noodles”

Raw Vegan noodles that is in the form of Raw Vegan Pasta

If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can use a vegetable peeler and make zucchini ribbons rather than “noodles”.  Or you can buy a spiralizer here in case you love kitchen gadgets as much as I do and are just dying to clutter up your kitchen with another appliance to try out another gadget.
I do really love my spiralizer for fast and easy meals.  Zucchini noodles, carrot noodles, use it to make curly baked sweet potato fries.  I love it almost as much as much as these

Where were we.  Oh yes, back to sauce.  Normally I make my own red sauce in the Vita in about 7 seconds flat but the Newman’s Own sauces will come in handy when fresh tomatoes become a luxury.

I like that the Newman’s Own Foundation donates to charities around the world.

I was also sent me this Flip Ultra HD Camera

I can’t wait to put it to use.

Maybe on our upcoming trip or just walking around daily life.

I may let Skylar play with The Flip and see what kind of video she captures.  Four year olds make great videographers.  Haven’t you heard?

I heard that you liked the Caramel Pumpkin Whip Dip

It’s the perfect thing to make when you’ve got a little leftover pumpkin puree in the bottom of the can and don’t know what to do with it.  The dip comes together in less than 15 seconds and have you heard the expression, Finger lickin’ good?  Yeah, alrighty then.

Questions:

1. Have you tried Newman’s Own products?   Any favorites?

2. Do you take more pictures or videos?

I don’t actually take much video on my iPhone or with my DSLR that does either stills or video.  I don’t know why I never think to shoot video.  The Flip should have me inspired since it’s so cute and looks fun.

Looking back on Skylar’s early years, I wish I had shot more video.  I mean, home videos from when you’re a kid become the stuff that embarrassing high school or college graduation parties or wedding rehearsal dinner moments are made of, right?  All the home videos from when you were young and acting silly.

3. Weekend plans?

I’ve got a busy one lined up.  I hope you get some R & R and can unwind and recharge your batteries a little bit.  That’s the plan for me.  Not sure how true to “plan” things will actually play out but I can try.

P.S. Thanks for the $100 Visa & Pedometer Giveaway Entries

Enjoy your weekend!

    The roasted garlic is SO good. Tip for non-gf folks: It’s almost too overpowering with garlic bread, at least imho (and I love garlic!).
    Btw, that’s the first time I’ve seen your red sauce recipe, and I’m thinking that’s a sneaky and great way to get some carrots onto my husband’s plate. Naturally, this will come after I’ve bought a food processor, unless there’s a way to make this without a processor or blender.
    Have a fantastic weekend!

      you could omit the carrots if you want or just dice them fine and throw them into a bowl of mashed tomatoes and do it by hand…or you could go to target and buy a mini food processor for 5 bucks and call it good that way, too :)

      the carrots are not essential…nor is the food proc but it may make things a little easier.

    Newman’s Own offers SO many great products. The salsa is incredible. My personal favorites are Pineapple and Tequila Lime (zero proof, haha). The salad dressings are great too. My fave? The “Lighten Up Low Fat Ginger Sesame”, it’s perfectly sweet, tangy, and very light!

      Not sure. You don’t have to do a video. Encouraged, but not “required”. We shall see…

    I love Newman’s Own Pasta Sauces! Well….any sauce or salsa. My favorites pasta sauces are Roasted Garlic & Pepper, Marinara with Mushrooms & when I really want to treat myself I go for Newman’s Own Vodka Sauce….YUM!

    BTW – your Caramel Pumpkin Whip Dip is pure genius. I can’t wait to make my own!

    *I’m so glad I found you on Instagr.am yesterday, I love your site! :)

    I love Newman Own’s products! Even though it’s easy to throw some homemade spaghetti sauce together, I always have some Newman’s in the pantry for when I’m too lazy. I use the plain marinara sauce and then just jazz it up with other ingredients if I want to. I also use this for a dipping sauce when I make breadsticks.

    I love Newman’s Own! The pasta sauce is so delicious. I don’t think I have a favourite, just whatever is in the cupboard will do. Besides, I always end up adding what the sauce doesn’t have (ie. adding garlic to the basil flavour, adding basil to the garlic flavour). I can never leave a jar of anything alone, it’s gotta have more flair added to it :)

    I take LOTS of photos, and quite a bit of videos. For daily life stuff I usually just use my iPhone, but blog photos are all taken with the DSLR.

    Weekend plans? Sadly, no. Too much R&R for me it looks like, haha. Family is away, friends are behind on homework, & the boyfriend is working. Maybe some baking time for me…I’m sure I’ll find some way to enjoy it :)

    Have a great weekend!

      I take lots of photos too and use the same strategy as you, mostly. But do throw in some edited iphone pics. If I dont run them thru Lightroom first, not good. lol

    the camera seems great!
    I bet Skylar will record some awesome videos ;)
    I definitely take more pictures, but I think it´s fun to videotape, too, especially with children. I love watching the (sadly, rare) videos of myself as a child, especially the gmynastic ones :D
    Have a great weekend, Averie!

    Newman’s spaghetti sauces are good, but they’re definitely not a substitute for bruschetta. Bruschetta is way chunkier with a more prominent fresh veggie and olive oil taste. I haven’t bought it for a long time so I’m not sure if they still make it, but the Classico bruschetta is excellent for something from a jar.
    (I’m assuming you know that Trader Joe’s has good bruschetta in the refrigerated section.)

      I know it’s chunkier but as sort of a “base layer” I thought the sauce might be nice..pizza meets bruschetta type idea.

      And no, I didnt know that about TJs. Thanks!

      And they got fig butter in stock at my TJs…yay!

    I’ve tried the salsas and love them. I really like what the company stands for. I want to say we’ve tried pretzels too, but don’t hold me to that one ;-) Definitely picture taker not videos.

    Newman’s Own cereals are delicious, so I should totally be trying the sauces. As for my own HD Flip, I can’t find the dang thing! It’s lost somewhere in the house. Dang-it!

    Wow, getting lots of goodies! Awesome on the camera, can’t wait to see what you think of it.

    1. Not in a long time, but it sounds good.
    2. Pictures now, I haven’t gotten into vlogging yet.
    3. Not much – relaxing, running, catching up on chores, and maybe a little experimenting in the kitchen.

    I have never tried the Newman’s Own sauces. Most store-bought sauces are too salty for me. I don’t know why they have to add so much salt!

    I wish I had known years ago that my camera could actually take video. Ever since I found that out I’ve taken a lot of videos of my nieces and nephews. But I wish I had some videos from when they were younger.

    No major weekend plans for me. Which I am so grateful for because last weekend was jam packed. Although I am going to be doing a bit of experimenting in the kitchen, something I haven’t done in awhile!

      Well I just got mine this week and played with the cakepop maker and it seems to be working great. Still have lots of playtime to do…for $14.99 it was cheap thrills baby :)

    I love Neuman’s Own! Their salsa is to die for especially the Mango or Pineapple. I at one point considered dumping it on ice cream but didn’t out of fear that my family would institutionalize me! I really should try their salad dressings.

    I haven’t tried it. Is it a natural whole food product?
