VH "Excite Your Dinner" Blog Tour! (+ Giveaway for Canadians!)

Disclosure – I am participating in the VH Excite Your Dinner blog tour by enCompass Media on behalf of Con Agra Foods. I received compensation as a thank you for participating and for sharing my honest opinion.

Well, here we are in 2013... the holiday season coming to an end.  It was another excellent Christmas and New Years for me, I love this time of year a lot!  One of our Christmas traditions is a big pot luck dinner party with my mom's side of the family on the Saturday before Christmas.  I was fortunate enough to have some VH Sauce and some new recipes to try, providing me the opportunity to bring a delicious, and very simple, appetizer for the dinner!

I'm not a cook, Mr. Lock is the resident chef around this condo.  So, I prefer an easy-to-assemble dish whenever possible!  I love VH Sweet Thai Chili sauce, so I chose to make this easy appetizer - Grilled Sweet Chili Flatbreads.  They were a huge hit!



I made a few small changes to the recipe, substituting feta for the called-for goat cheese (personal preference), and using the broiler on my stove rather than a sandwich press or grill (because I don't have one), but it was so easy to adapt this delicious recipe that way, and the Sweet Thai Chili Sauce was the star anyway!  This really inspired me to explore the VHSauces.ca website, and the VH Facebook page which has lots of great tips for adding a fun twist to your everyday meals.





One lucky Canadian reader has a chance to win their own VH Sauce prize pack!  From now until 12:01 am on January 13th, 2012 you can enter on the Rafflecopter widget below.  You will need to take a look at VH Sauce Recipes for the mandatory entry.  Good luck!
