Gluten-Free for Dinner - Spicy Gluten-Free Pasta Sauce - Costantino's Kitchen [My Review]

I am such a huge fan of pasta dinners and couldn't wait to take the opportunity to try a brand new sauce for spaghetti night! Are you looking to try a new pasta sauce? Well if you are, I found one you should really take a look at, it was so delicious.

I had the chance to try out pasta made by Costantino's Kitchen. Their history begins in Italy with the matriarch of their family Angie Mariani Costantino who taught her grandson how to make these delicious sauces. Great care is taken when making these tasty sauces and I am so happy to hear about their Italian roots! Read more about their company history here.

I had the chance to try out their Arizona Arrabbiata. I'm a huge fan of this sauce and I had it for my weekly spaghetti night - just take a look at that tasty dish -

I love the ingredients list as well. Check out it out -

Ingredients: San Marzano Style Tomatoes
(vine-ripened plum tomatoes, tomato juice,
fresh basil, salt, naturally derived citric acid),
Tomato Puree (vine-ripened tomatoes, salt,
naturally derived citric acid), Fresh Onions,
JalapeƱo Peppers, Italian Extra Virgin Olive
Oil, Fresh Carrots, Fresh Garlic, Lemon Juice,
Red Wine Vinegar, Spices, Mediterranean
Sea Salt, Crushed Red Pepper, Black Pepper

(Ingredients list obtained from http://www.costantinoskitchen.com/images/NVAA.pdf)

Although there was a spiciness to the Arizona Arrabbiata it also had a mild sweet tinge to it and it was so dark rich red! I LOVED IT and I plan on purchasing more. I love that it was thick and rich sauce. I really don't like when I recognize pasta sauce as watery, I'm not a fan of watery pasta sauce. I added a little bit of meat into the sauce just for some flavor too and used gluten-free noodles. So good! (Purchase now)

Pricing, I don't think it's too bad. It's $24.99 for a 3-pack. It's maybe a bit more expensive than what I would usually spend but not by much and let me tell you it's absolutely worth it. Hopefully you can find this amazing sauce in stores though. Visit this link to find out where you can buy a jar. One huge plus is that shipping is free, so if you can't find it in stores, definitely purchase some pasta sauce with Costantino's Kitchen.

Purchase your pasta sauce by following this link. Also stay up to date with their happenings, by following them on Twitter and liking them on Facebook.

I received the above items in exchange for my honest review.

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

Lotus Foods Rice Review and Giveaway

​​

I tend to eat quite a bit of rice in my diet. First, because it's a healthy grain. Plus, I'm also gluten-free and it's a good grain for me to have that won't negatively impact my body.
So I usually purchase one particular type of rice brand, so I was really eager for the chance to try out a new kind. I tried out rice by Lotus Foods. You may have seen them in the store or heard of them before! 
What makes Lotus Foods different? Well they work towards improving the lives of the farmers they work with first of all. They use what is called a "System of Rice Intensification." It's a way of allowing farms to "double and triple their yields while using 80-90% less seed, 50% less water, less or no chemical inputs." Basically, more rice, less water. So I tend to be a visual learner, so if you want to know more about what this means, watch this really short video below:

They also partner with small scale farmers, which I think is amazing and I really …

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway

I absolutely love peanut butter. Really, I mean peanut butter is such a huge part of my diet. And you know, I really appreciate when peanut butter has simple ingredients. Peanuts. Salt. And that's it. I don't like added oils and I'm not TOO big of a fan of flavored peanut butters. Although I'd never turn down chocolate peanut butter (if I found the right blend!).
Anyways, I had the chance to try out some peanut butter by a company called, "Crazy Richards." Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter has been around a while. It was formed and combined by two Richards about 30 years ago and was recently passed along to the newest generation.
Well, I got the chance to try out their peanut butter - creamy and crunchy. I loved it. Here's a weird thing I love with peanut butter - whole milk vanilla Greek yogurt with blueberries! Sure people put peanut butter in smoothies, but I scoop out some of my favorite vanilla greek yogurt into a cup and put it in the freezer with …
