DAVE'S GOURMET BUTTERNUT SQUASH pasta sauce

Ingredients that you can read

    Recently I got to try for the first time Dave's Gourmet Butternut Squash pasta sauce. At first I thought I couldn't imagine how this would taste. But after one bite and smelling the aroma in my house.. I have to say I was pleasantly impressed. So much so that I highly doubt I will ever use another sauce. I can see so much use in just this one sauce alone. You could make pizza, pasta, spaghetti, soups and the list goes on as your imagination can list. This sauce has a sweet but savory taste. Unlike what you would imagine.. It's so wonderful tasting I would actually call it a comforting food. You know the type you go too when you just want some good food that makes you feel good. Yes I would put it in that category. Last night for dinner I made cheese ravioli, green peas and this wonderful pasta sauce. Which come to think of it. I would call it everything sauce cause that's how much I liked it. Our dinner was a big hit. My husband even asked how did you make that. ;) 

p.s. Dave's Gourmet, I love you..

                                                                                                                                                                       I love the fact the Vitamin C serum comes in a little pump cause they are so convienant to use that way and look so classy. The serum goes on smooth and I can tell it's working. Leaves my skin smooth and soft feeling. I look forward in continues use of the product for more results. The eye serum smells like cucumbers so you know it's going to work right away cause we have always heard lay cucumbers on your eyes. The smell does go away within minutes leaving your eyes less puffy. They seem firm and less puffy. I look forward in continuing using this product.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

The Naked Edge Veggie-Go's



Did you enjoy fruit roll ups as a kid? I know I did. But the one thing I didn't know was they were not that healthy. Recently I got to try Veggie-Go's they do remind me of fruit roll ups but for adults. They are loaded and packed in their little forms with veggies and fruits. Good to go anywhere. I really enjoyed them and they are so good and nutritious. 

  • Each strip has 1/2 serving of fruit and 1/2 serving of veggies
  • No added sugar
  • 1/3 the sugar of the leading fruit strip
  • Organic
  • Non-GMO verified


A little info down below for you if your interested more in where they came from and got started from.



Located in Boulder, Colorado, Veggie-Go’s are the original fruit AND veggie strip! Founders and owners, John and Lisa McHugh started The Naked Edge after returning home to Boulder after working on Organic farms across Europe. They were shocked by the over processed food that made up the majority of American's diets, so they decided to create a product that represented the way they were eating on the farms. Though a ton of trial and error, they created Veggie-Go's in 2011. They started out at farmer's markets and they are now growing exponentially!
