I chose two recipes that sounded particularly amazing and rushed right out to Wal-Mart to grab the McCormick’s spices I needed.  While I was tempted to load my cart up so I could make each and every yummy recipe personalized just for me, I stuck with what I needed.

After I picked up all my spices I headed to Wal-Marts Fresh Meat department to grab some chicken for lunch and some of their yummy beef for dinner.  Have you checked out Wal-mart’s meat department lately? They have a great variety of high quality meats.  I get steak from Wal-mart for dinner every Sunday night and the flavor and quality of those steaks is just as good if not better than any restaurant I have been to!  We go through a lot of chicken at our house and I get our chicken here too, it is always so fresh and tender and I can’t pass up those prices!!  So I definitely recommend picking up your next dinner from the Fresh Meat Department, you will not be disappointed!

I got home and gathered my ingredients for Festive Meringue Cookies and Buffalo Chicken Tenders.

After all that shopping I was ready for lunch and the quick Buffalo Chicken Tenders sounded like the perfect quick lunch to make.  Lunch was ready in no time and was outstanding!  The McCormick’s Original Buffalo Wings Seasoning Mix was perfect, just spicy enough but extremely flavorful, I wasn’t just tasting hot, there were other spices going on that brought my simple lunch to a new level!  Buffalo Chicken Tenders #shop #cbias

I was a little apprehensive about the meringues, they always seemed so delicate and like they would be difficult to make, and after reading the recipe FlavorPrint provided I was ready to finally tackle meringues, and you know what? I love them, I am addicted to making them, photographing them and most of all eating them!

Both recipes were easy to make and absolutely delicious!  So delicious in fact there are no leftover, not even a crumb.  They were devoured and I have requests to make them both again….immediately!

Thanks to McCormick’s FlavorPrint I have discovered two great new recipes that I am in love with.  Of course I am in love with them, they were chosen for me based on my answers, assuring that every recipe I am recommended should become a favorite!

    Well now here’s a droolworthy post! Your meringues drew me in from Menu Plan Monday over at Organized Junkie. And I had never heard of flavor profile! That’s a neat resource!

    Love McCormick’s and don’t use anything else!!! Some wonderful ideas here and they are definitely going into my recipe box. The meringues look delicious. We love those but have never tried with the peppermint…thank you. (we normally make them at Halloween with vanilla flavoring and my son calls them Ghost poo…hehe)

    Hugs,

    Your meringues are beautiful! I would like to try making them but I don’t see directions for making the stripes. Am I missing something?

      Sorry!! I didn’t mention how I made the stripes, totally slipped my mind. You just take a paint brush and brush red gel food coloring on the inside of your piping bag, I just use a ziploc bag so I can start with a new bag once the gel begins to fade. Hope this helps!! :)
