    Your recipe sounds and looks delish. There are so many delicious recipes. I like the Alfredo 1 and the dessert recipes sound awesome. I would have such a hard time choosing.

  2. I would use the Whisk Bliss Gluten Free to make Sausage Gravy with Biscuits… My hubby and I LOVE biscuits and gravy, but we don’t have it too often, so it’s a very special treat when we do 🙂

  3. Laura Wong

    Hello! This looks delicious and I think my family would love it. I’m from Toronto and dont think we can get the whisk bliss, I haven’t seen it anywhere. Any suggestions on a substitution for that part? And tips would be great as the rest of the recipe looks yummy:)

    Thanks,
    Laura

  4. This sounds like a great product. I’d like to try it would for the broccoli cheese soup because I’m craving cheesy warm goodness right now 🙂

  5. Marilyn Snow

    I love Shirley J’s Whisk Bliss. It makes dinner so easy. This looks like a yummy recipe to try. Thanks for sharing!!

  6. Arzu Bilazer

    There are SO many tasty recipes! But, first, I think I would try the SLOW COOKER ROAST WITH GARDEN VEGETABLES. I’d actually like to try it today! 😉

  7. Angie

    Oh yum! This pasta looks. Like it would make a great cold pasta in the summer instead of the macaroni salad in the deli. Definitely going to be making this soon!

  8. Cynthia

    I’m thinking I’d like to play around with making Chicken Pot Pie w/a Puff Pastry shell. This product looks amazing, dying to try! Thank you for introducing it to us, so many uses.

  9. Lauren G

    Wow, that pasta looks awesome! I will have to try it this week. I think the Whisk Bliss recipe I’d have to try is the White Cheddar in the Pumpkin Alfredo sauce – I know pumpkin’s not really in season, but I love it so much that it’s stockpiled in our pantry 🙂

  10. Jen

    Oh yum, this looks good. Only wish you didn’t have to go to one of these specialty store to buy the Shirley J stuff.

  11. Karyn

    Broccoli cheese soup for sure! I want to make some now to forget about all this cold winter weather and impending snow this weekend! :o)

  12. Angela Leonard

    Yum! I’d make the sour cream chicken! And I would definitely spend the gift card on a Le Creuset dutch oven, I’ve wanted one FOREVER!

  13. Kris Mc.

    I would love to try the Shirley J sauces & mixes! The Cheesy Romano Breadsticks and Chicken Lasagna would be the first to come out of my kitchen!! Also the Cheesy Broccoli Bake casserole sounds de-lish too!

  14. Emily

    Oh my goodness! This recipe looks amazing! I can’t wait to try this and the skillet meatballs and noodles in creamy herb sauce!

  15. Christina Stansbury

    There are a lot of great recipes to choose from, but the first one that caught my eye was for Chocolate Chip Fudge Cookies!

  16. M.

    I’m not big on Dijon or peppers, any idea of what I could substitute to add flavor? I can’t wait to try the Whisk Bliss!

  17. Crissy Shinn

    Amazing Giveaway Gifts. I can’t wait to try the recipe. I’m a sucker for Pasta & Chicken!!! My 2 favorites!!!

  18. Jamie

    Oh man I could make sausage gravy with this, I love that but hate having to make the gravy. I will have to try out Whisk Bliss!

  19. garysgirl

    This recipe looks amazing!! I’m totally pinning it. 🙂 And I’d make those fabulous looking chocolate chip fudge cookies. Yum!! Thank you for having this giveaway. I could really use some new kitchen stuff so I’m hoping I win! :))

  20. Shelley

    Creamy Broccoli Cheese Soup w/ Whisk Bliss White Cheddar. It couldn’t be more simple – Whisk Bliss, water & broccoli – how’s that for a fast week-day dinner?

  21. Jessica P

    I would first make the cream cheese sauce. I have always wanted to try it and by using the whisk bliss, it looks so easy!

  22. Emily

    I would go for the sausage gravy! I can’t wait to see how this stuff works!!! I am off to order me some, just in case I don’t win it. 🙂

  23. Erika

    I would love to make my own Alfredo sauce! I just don’t like store bought kinds, but I haven’t been able to master homemade cheese sauces yet. Wisk Bliss could probably help me do that!

  24. BarbB

    I have never heard of this product before – I am going to have to try it out! The Red and White Pasta looks to be right up my alley!

  25. Shayla

    I would make the alfredo sauce! My kids wont eat meat so there is a lot of pasta happening at our house on a daily basis. It would be nice to mix it up and make a homemade alfredo sauce that im sure will be delish!

  26. Jennifer Witt

    I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Shirly J but I haven’t had the chance to try anything. This recipe makes me want to even more. 🙂
    Jen Witt

  27. Kerry M

    I would make the coconut curry but I would replace the shrimp due to allergies. Love curry but mine always turns out gross!

  28. Alyssa Eisner

    Definitely Taco Soup! Would be perfect on a cold, windy day like today! Thanks for running the giveaway. I love Williams Sonoma!

  29. Mary W

    I would use Whisk Bliss to make perfect chicken gravy to serve over mashed potatoes and roast chicken.The recipe is on their site.

  30. Brandy H

    My four year old has fallen in love with carrot cake so I would definitely make the Carrot Cake Cookies for her!

  31. Tricia L.

    This Creamy Dijon Chicken & Thyme Pasta Bake looks delicious! Can’t wait to try it! It would be even better if I owned a Dutch Oven! 🙂

  32. Susan

    This pasta bake looks great! SO many things I would make–maybe the cranberry pumpkin bread or choc chip fudge cookies.

  33. Alison

    Your recipe looks delicious and I am going to have to try it. Other than that the cranberry almond bread looks delicious.

  34. Deborah N.

    Definately some alfredo sauce! My kids love it on anything – pasta, pizza, rice. . . the list can go on and on!

  35. Kayley Maybe

    Carrot cake cookies. For sure! Although I love broccoli cheese soup, and my home made versions have not been that good…

  36. Sharry Murawski

    I have never heard of the Shirley J products….but it does sound pretty neat! I love the Williams Sonoma store and we have one in our mall…may favorite place to spend time! And your pasta dish sounds amazing!

  37. Rosa

    I would make the sauteed shrimp with Italian butter sauce (after your pasta bake, of course!). But it was really hard to pick just one! I was only assuaged after I realized I can make others AFTER this dish. 🙂

  38. Either the broccoli cheese soup or mac and cheese! My husband’s favorite soup is broc-cheese but I love mac and cheese so I’d have to make both 😉

  39. Jen S.

    I would use these products to make chicken alfredo pizza.. it is so nice to see some gluten free mixes as my boyfriend’s mother is allergic to wheat and his youngest brother is gluten intolerant.

  40. Jeanna B.

    Can’t wait to try the Shirley J Whisk Bliss! I think I would try the Broccoli Cheese soup. Then, the mushroom spinach fettuccine. Both look yummy!

  41. Chris Bennett

    Thanks for the awesome give away….ShirleyJ sounds like a “must try” product…..can’t wait to get some….Thanks Jenny !!!!

  42. Jordan

    I’d love to try the whisk bliss! After your casserole, first thing I’d try is the Stovetop White Cheddar Mac n Cheese 🙂

  43. Margot C

    I would make Coconut Curry with Shrimp.

    I have never heard of this stuff and now I must have it! (thank you so much)

  44. traci severson

    This sounds like it will help me in the kitchen getting dinner on the table much easier after a long day at work!!!

  45. Brittni

    This pasta dish looks fabulous! I think the other recipe I would make is the Broccoli Cheese Soup. Not only is it one of my favorite soups, it would be especially perfect on a night like this!

  46. Mindi

    That recipe looks amazing! The Ziplist recipe link is not working though and it’s trying to save another recipe to my recipe box.

  47. Claudia

    So this pasta looks amazing and a great way to incorporate veggies into the mix. From the website I think I would try her Rice Pilaf recipe.

  48. Kim Catapano

    That looks so good and I love how quickly it comes together. Other than your pasta recipe, I would make the Cranberry Almond Pumpkin Bread.

  49. Carol

    Jenny your casserole looks delicious. The first thing I’d make is a quick macaroni and cheese casserole-one of our comfort food favorites.

  50. AprilG

    Well first off, this pasta bake sounds AMAZING!! Also looks amazing!! I wish I could make it right now! However, as soon as I get my hands on this product, after the pasta bake, I think I’d give the Alfredo recipe a whirl. I love Olive Gardens Alfredo but can’t seem to create something at home that I like (can’t find a comparison at other restaurants, either). The Whisk Bliss sounds promising though! And so simple!
