Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce Giveaway!!

Most of you who follow my main blog, Life is Sweet, know that I LOVE good food, and I love to cook. I try to share my recipes regularly on my Family Food blog. I was so thrilled when I received two bottles of Country Bob's All-Purpose Sauce in the mail, along with a recipe booklet. I canned my planned dinner for that night and made one of Country Bob's recipes. Oh MY goodness! This stuff is GOOD!! And, guess what?? Country Bob's is giving away a bottle of this very sauce to TWO of my readers! Seriously, you need to try this!

Here's a little history about Country Bob's Sauces:

How does anything really good get its start? Where do great products come from? Usually they are the result of much time being exerted and a tremendous amount of love being invested. At that point you can say, "That's mine! I made that." That's the way Country Bob Edson created his All Purpose Sauce.

In 1968 Country Bob perfected the sauce of his dreams. After years of giving the sauce to friends and family he began to sell it in 1977. The reaction was overwhelming just as it is today. Almost everyone who tries Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce becomes a lifelong user. And why not, it is the perfect complement to practically any meal set on your table.

It was actually October of 1982 when Country Bob, Inc. became the company, which remains today. Bob Edson, Terry Edson, Al Malekovic and Reed Malekovic formed a corporation with equal ownership. Since that time Country Bob's distribution has magnified regionally in all directions from our corporate office located in Centralia, Illinois. Even with the tremendous growth we have not forgotten where we came from, continuing in our relentless pursuit of product excellence.

Along with our
All Purpose Sauce we have expanded our product line to include BBQ Sauce, Seasoning Salt and Spicy All Purpose Sauce. With our fully automated bottling line we also have the capability of producing Private Label products for stores or restaurants.

It would be nice if we could claim responsibility for the success of the company, however, credit must be given where credit is due. Proverbs 16:3 says, "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." We have placed true ownership of Country Bob, Inc. in the hands of God. "Christ is our CEO" and He is an Awesome Boss!

Aren't they great?? Here's what I've tried with my first bottle of sauce:

First, I cooked Corn Pone Pie. YUM Yum YUM!
Ground beef, kidney beans, corn and a corn bread topping. The kids went crazy over it....and even my pickiest eater ate it (that would be Twizzler). It had a nice spice to it, which made it totally unique from anything else I've ever made.

Next, I used it on top of burgers the other night. Ooh! I love a burger with a little kick. I'll definitely be using Country Bob's again or my next burgers.
