BBF Kid-Friendly Webisode 2: Tasty Tomato Basil English Muffin Pizza

November 27, 2011 by  
Filed under From the Kitchen, Recipes

Chef Scott Liebfried has created another kid-friendly recipe using Bumble Bee tuna. This recipe uses simple ingredients such as English muffins, cheese, basil, and tomato sauce. It also uses the Bumble Bee Foods sun dried tomato and basil tuna.

You might to try this healthier version when making pizza. I’m thinking this would make a nice lunch or easy weeknight dinner idea.

Bumble Bee Foods Bee Squad Party

August 9, 2011 by  
Filed under News and Chit Chat

For the second year, I am a member of the Bumble Bee Foods Bee Squad.   Bumble Bee Foods sent their Bee Squad bloggers to Blogher again this year.  The conference was in San Diego, CA and never before had I been to California or anywhere even near it.  Bumble Bee was excited that the conference was in their neck of the woods and they took us to some of their favorite places.

After we arrived in San Diego on Thursday Bumble Bee hosted a private party at Mr. A’s Restaurant.  The party was outside on the patio overlooking the city.  The view was absolutely beautiful.  We were fortunate to begin the party while it was still daylight and stay until dark.

Hardly any of us sat down during the party. The view was just too gorgeous to ignore. We all stood around and continued to look out. We saw several planes land while we were there which was a bit scary. It looked like the planes were going to crash into a building or land in the water.

One of the highlights of Blogher is seeing blogging friends. I met Elizabeth from Table 4 Five back in 2008 at the first Pampers Mommy Blogger event. We sat up on the very tall bench at Pampers and I sang “I’m a big kid look what I can do . . .”. She declared me cute and we have been friends since.  🙂

Chef Scott Leibfried continues to be the chef for Bumble Bee Foods. Last year during the Blogher party Chef Scott made some quick and yummy foods using Bumble Bee products. This year he hung out with us and talked. He is very nice and easy to talk to. Chef Scott is known for his appearances on Hell’s Kitchen, the Food Network Challenge, and Kitchen Nightmares.

I was also thrilled to meet up with Lori again from The Bargain Shopper Lady.  We got to spend lots of time together this year and she is definitely a kindred spirit.  You can see a picture of the two of us and the entire Bee Squad at her site.

As you can see, the city is beautiful during the day and night. It is also very obvious that I am in need of a new camera.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures. I’ll try to post more from Blogher later this week.

Bumble Bee Foods has introduced BeeWell for Life, a site that provides resources and tools to help consumers achieve a healthy lifestyle and make a difference in the lives of those touched by breast cancer.

BeeWell for Life features blogs written by Coach Jenny Hadfield as well as nutritionists Willow Jarosh and Stephanie Clark. Online tools are available to measure energy balance. Members can access and manage the impact of their daily activities to make the most of their healthy lifestyle.

My favorite part of the BeeWell for Life website is that we can make a difference in others’ lives. For every mile members walk, run, or bike, Bumble Bee donates $.15/mile to Breast Cancer Network of Strength. Up to $200,000 will be donated. Every mile makes a difference. This is going until October 31, 2010 so hurry and become a free member so that you can make an impact!

Bumble Bee has also made healthy living a bit easier for those of us on the go.  You cand download the mobile app and track your miles from your mobile device.

I am member of the Bumble Bee Foods Bee Squad.  I also attended the Bumble Bee Foods BlogHer Party, but I am not obligated to write about their products.

Chef Scott Liebfried has just completed his tenth recipe video for Bumble Bee Foods.  This recipe is for sundried tomato and basil baked pasta and it sounds delicious.  I hope you enjoy it!

In case you’re interested, you can check out the Bumble Bee Foods party from BlogHer.


Bumble Bee Foods BlogHer Party

As I have mentioned before, I am a representative for Bumble Bee Foods.  This year for BlogHer, Bumble Bee Foods threw a party for other bloggers.   🙂

Chef Scott Leibfried was at the party to fix up some of his super easy recipes using Bumble Bee products.  At the party, he made three of his recipes.  They were so delicious!

Here are some of the members of the Bee Squad at the party with Chef Scott. It looks as though there is also a party guest in the picture.

Chef Scott is preparing the Asian Tuna Wraps.  These were sooo good!  It reminded me of an old favorite Asian Bistro I used to frequent. 

Here are the Asian Tuna Wraps that Chef Scott made. Sorry for the very poor picture quality.  It was a spur-of-the-moment picture and I did not set my camera correctly.  You can see a better picture by clicking on the actual recipe.

This is Chef Scott and me.  He was very friendly and easy to talk to.  He answered people’s questions and entertained us all with his delicious recipes.

Before leaving the party, I had Chef Scott sign my Lands’ End tote bag that we were given at the party.  In case you are wondering what it says, it’s “Cook Well”.

You can find more recipes at the Bumble Bee Foods website.
