I have to admit that I am a very semi-homemade cook; it is very rare (alright almost unheard of) for me to cook something from scratch.  I think with all of the premade and meal helpers that we have available to us today it’s kind of silly (for a busy mom) to try and cook everything homemade.  

Last month I had the chance to do a review for Farm Rich appetizers and I couldn’t have been more happy about it.  With all of the holiday parties I was attending I knew I would need all of the help I could get with the food that I would be preparing and Farm Rich was a huge time saver.  For those of you who have never heard of Farm Rich here is a little more information about them from their website:

Farm Rich® products have been setting the standard for delicious, easy-to-prepare food the whole family loves.

Farm Rich® foods taste like nothing else because they're made like nothing else – with 100% real ingredients like real cheese, high-quality meats and fresh vegetables. Our snacks, appetizers, and breakfast foods are quick-frozen and carefully packaged so busy families can prepare great tasting food within minutes.
Farm Rich® is a Rich's Consumer Brand, which brings to market some of the food industry's leading retail brands including SeaPak® Shrimp Co., Casa Di Bertacchi® and more.

We got to try several of the many varieties of  appetizers from Farm Rich for our review and I have to admit that I really liked them all (a little too much…my waist line wasn’t amused).  My son loved the pizza slices and I loved that  they were not messy like a regular slice of pizza and my favorite was definitely the mozzarella bites…heavenly! 

This New Year’s eve I hosted a small party for family and friends at my house and I knew that it was the perfect opportunity to incorporate Farm Rich appetizers into my entertaining.  I had a recipe for Barbeque Meatballs that my mother had given me a while ago that I had been wanting to try out and this was the perfect opportunity.  The meatballs (recipe below) were a huge hit and using the Farm Rich meatballs was such a time saver; I will definitely use this recipe (and Farm Rich meatballs) to entertain with again soon.  farmrich

Mom’s BBQ Meatballs
