Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce


Yesterday I got a package in the mail from Country Bob’s. So last night we went western style for dinner. Included in my product review he also sent a little brochure with different things to make. Now I am not one for steak sauce so I was not sure I would be able to give this a fair review so I had people over for dinner for some insight.

We started out with Shrimp and Shrimp Cocktail Sauce. The sauce was delightful, tangy, and did not overpower the shrimp like some store makes do. After making the Cocktail Sauce I know I will never go back to anything pre-made. My guest thought this was great and even asked me to make more for their upcoming BBQ.

Next on our menu was Little Party Bites made with Little Smokies. I tweaked the recipe a little so I would not have to break into the second bottle. Because the Bob’s All Purpose sauce has great taste I paired it with the Kraft Original BBQ sauce because we needed 2 cups, but I did not make as much sauce as the recipe called for so I used very little of BBQ sauce. It still gave our Little Smokies the zen and zest and made a great hit with the guest.

For our main dish we had The World’s Greatest Burgers and let me tell you the name says it all and more. The burgers melt in your mouth, they had so much flavor I’m pretty sure I will never eat another regular burger ever again, we added Borden Bacon Cheese to our to give it more of the western theme dinner. The down side was I did not have any County Bob’s Seasoning Salt as I am sure this made it much more better. The All Purpose sauce is 100% better than anything I have ever tasted so I can only imagine the Seasoning Salt being nothing less then the best ever made.

Now you can’t have the World’s Best Burgers without Country Bob’s Fantastic Baked Beans. Move over Bushes Grilling Beans you just moved from the number 1 spot. I used the blandest beans I could find which are Campbell Pork and Beans so I would not get any flavor than what I added, and again I tweaked the recipe as I only had about 1/2 cup left and no Seasoning Salt.

I was not sure my dinner guest were ever going to leave, and when they did I was exspecting them to show back up for breakfast. They did call me the next day to thank me again for the great meal I served. Before I started I said I did not know if I could review fairly, Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce is not just for dunking it truly is great to cook with and made the food so much better beyond my expectations.
Country Bob’s has a whole line of products I can’t wait to try out.

Tide Pods Detergent Review

I received a sample of the Tide Pods Detergent from Vocalpoint  a few days ago, and I was wowed by the whole idea of the packet as I have never tried them before. I love the fact that is comes with detergent, stain remover and brightener all in one. These means spending less time watching the washer waiting to add everything at a certain time. Another plus the kids can help without the waste.

Turn on the washer and just add, I’m pretty sure it could not get any easier than that. The first thing I noticed was using the pod I am using less of everything already added to the pod, money saved. My clothes came out looking and smelling great, without wasting any time. After I used the sample I went out and bought a huge container. I showed my older two children ages 12 and 15 how to use them, I have never seen two kids so happy to do laundry now, now they just throw it in and walk away. Even my 6 year old can help me with the laundry.


At first I was worried about throwing the pod in the washer, I was afraid the plastic would be left in the washer when the laundry was done, I went through the clothes and was surprised not to find it. I could not not find anything wrong with these and was glad I gave them a try and have since switched.
