Hellmann's Real Holiday Helpings Site & $25 American Express Card Giveaway!

I visited Hellmann's Real Holiday Helpings website and discovered this fantastic dessert recipe for Oven Roasted Apple-Cranberry Crisp With Creamy Spiced Chantilly.  This recipe uses mainly things that I call staples in my pantry so it should be relatively inexpensive to make.  It sounds so yummy and I can't wait to try it.  I always like to try my recipes before the actual event and I thought I would try this one to see if it would make the cut for Christmas dinner. Now I haven't been cooking that long, so I was actually surprised that mayonnaise goes into a dessert;  but, it does and it sounds delicious.  There are some other really great recipes that you should browse through on this site.  The recipes are for Real Food that tastes great and is made from simple ingredients including Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise (made with eggs, oil and vinegar). You can also watch video demonstrations that showcase stand-out holiday dishes.

Bobby Flay gives a really good tip on how to crush garlic during the video of how to make caesar salad crostini.  Gotta love tips from a professional chef!  Also if you want a tip from a professinal cleaner, remember my tip that you can use mayonnaise to remove water stains on wood.  Leave them over night, wipe clean, and repeat if necessary.  Yes I do consider myself a professional cleaner since I think that falls under the wife and mommy category.  Click here for the previous post on water mark removal.

They also have a $1/2 Hellmann's mayonnaise coupon. This should make for a really good deal especially if your grocery store doubles. I know I always use a lot of mayonnaise around the holidays because I love to make deviled eggs.

Don't forget to enter Hellmann's Real Holiday Helpings sweeps to try and win a year worth of groceries.  Who couldn't use that? 

Also, I will be giving away a $25 American Express Card courtesy of Hellmann's.  This will hopefully help with real holiday food shopping.  There are two ways to enter:
