Michael Angelo’s “Tasty Tips” Mother’s Day Giveaway (Closed)

Congratulations to Barbara W! I know you're going to enjoy it!

Mother's Day is coming up and Michael Angelo's is celebrating by honoring our Moms and offering a wonderful giveaway to The Little Kitchen readers…a year's supply of Michael Angelo's meals!

My Mom passed on her love of cooking on to me and even though I don't have children of my own, I love to cook for my family and friends. Michael Angelo Renna, CEO of Michael Angelo's Gourmet Foods, learned everything he knows about cooking from his mom, Sara, who learned it all from her Grandmother Foti. I love how these Italian moms have passed on a time-honored tradition of using quality ingredients in their cooking. I strive for the same thing in my own cooking.

As you know, I'm a total foodie but there are just times when I can't cook an entire meal for my husband and I. Yes, I'm a food blogger and I'm willing to admit that I do not cook every night of the week! I love Michael Angelo's frozen Italian meals because:

1) Michael Angelo's uses quality ingredients, real ingredients. I can read the ingredients listing and pronounce the ingredients. I know you know what a big deal that is. They also DO NOT USE chemical additives, gums or stabilizers. Michael says, “If you can't find it in Mom's kitchen, we won't use it in our food.”

Ingredients for Baked Ziti & Meatballs

2) All of their meals are made from scratch every day. Michael Angelo's prides itself on being a made-to-order frozen meal producer. All meals are packaged and shipped within 36 hours of receiving the ingredients to ensure freshness, quality and great flavor. And I love that they tell you on the packaging the date the product was made.

3) They taste good! We love their four cheese lasagna. We had the baked ziti & meatballs as well as the vegetable lasagna for the first time the other night. The meatballs were full of flavor and were not dry. The mozzarella cheese in the vegetable lasagna was so good and I could tell that it was high quality. I loved all of the vegetables in lasagna, such as the broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini and squash.

I'm very excited to share this giveaway with you…
