Book Review: Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss

Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss opens with Caroline Kline couch surfing in New York City due to her no longer having a job and her fiance breaking up with her. The cherry on top is when Caroline finds out her father is not doing well and has to go home to New Jersey to help out. She finds one thing she didn't expect . . . true love. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline from NetGalley for free in exchange for my honest review.  The synopsis of this book was intriguing, and I absolutely love baseball, so I couldn't wait to dig in to this story. Unfortunately, the story started off a bit slow and continued to be slow at points throughout the book. The slowness of the plot made it difficult to stay interested in the characters and their fate.  At one point, I didn't really care if I finished the story or not. With that being said, I'm glad I stuck with the book because the last 15% of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline started to

Product Review: Swanson Beef Broth

I received a Vox Box from Influenster.com that had Swanson Beef Broth in it for free in exchange for my honest review. I've never used Swanson's Beef Broth before. However, I have used their Chicken Broth before and had good results with it, so I was excited to try it out a different product by Swanson.

Typically, I eat more chicken than I do beef, so I didn't know what I wanted to make. I perused Pinterest for beef recipes that called for beef broth. I narrowed it down to beef stew and shepard's pie. Eventually, I settled on making Shepard's Pie with ground beef instead of lamb. The recipe was very simple and easy to follow.

Once I made the filling, I divided it in two small casserole dishes. The recipe made so much food, that I couldn't eat it all and ended up giving the second dish to my parent's neighbors. The neighbors enjoyed it and made two meals out of it. Things I would've changed in the recipe is I would have used more of the Swanson Beef Broth and less of the rosemary. However, the beef broth made a little gravy in the Shepard's Pie, which was a very welcome addition in my opinion.

Five out five stars is what I gave Swanson Beef Broth as it is a quality product, and it will be my go to broth to use the next time I need some for a recipe. It has a great flavor without being too overpowering. The container is easy to open and pour into a measuring cup. Next time, I will try the Swanson Beef Broth in a beef stew.
