Hormel Foods - Extended Family Blogger

If you aren't reading me in your reader - you may notice a new badge on my sidebar -

I am honored to be chosen as a Hormel Foods Extended Family Blogger.  If I'm being honest, when they first reached out ot me, I didn't immediately jump on the opportunity.  I barely know my way around my own kitchen...much less someone else's.

A quick look around on the Hormel Foods Website and I realized that this is right. up. my. alley!

First of all - I'm already a big fan of many of their products...

Jennio O Turkey! We love love their freezer to oven turkey breast for holidays in our home!
Pepperoni - perfect for snacking on the go, adding to part of the cheese pizza so everyone wins, or adding a little zest to pasta salads!
And...the pantry staple Hormel Chili - No Beans (or with...whatever suits you!) DELISH Queso in minutes!

I have been hopping around on their website, searching out recipe ideas (hellooooo Chicken Wild Rice Soup!) & I am also thrilled to discover they find time each year to dedicate themselves to many different philanthropic efforts. In 2010, Hormel Foods gave $5.7 million in cash and in-kind donations toward efforts in communities where their employees live and efforts that help alleviate hunger.

Donations have been made to countless organizations including United Way of Greater Minnesota and disaster relief funds throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa.

I love that Hormel Foods makes many efforts to give to those in need. They currently run a program called “On Our Way to Ending Hunger,” where they collaborate with retailers, nonprofits and the government on hunger relief efforts to nourish the hungry in the United States and abroad.

I love when a company goes the extra mile - Does that make a difference in the companies that you support?

I am honored to be chosen for this role as a Hormel Foods Extended Family Blogger & I hope you'll join me over the next few months, as I plan to share recipe ideas, product reviews and, everyone's favorite - GIVE AWAYS!
So, now tell me...

What is your favorite Hormel Product?

I am a big turkey burger fan! The seasoned pattys are great and I use the ground turkey in a lot of recipes that call for ground beef.
