It's officially summer, and I'm always looking for items to assist me with my summer cooking and entertaining needs. I love trying new items that will simplify life as a busy mom. I always look forward to partnering with Babbleboxx, they always introduce me to so many amazing new and exciting products. I love getting the opportunity to try new stuff and share them with you guys. Plus, I'm able to try products that I've never heard of before. My most recent Babbleboxx was jam-packed with summer cooking & entertaining essentials.

Roland Organic Soba Noodles

I'm so impressed with Roland Organic Soba Noodles. Whether you're looking for the perfect meal staple to enjoy warm or cold. I love how versatile Roland Organic Soba Noodles is. The noodles can be added to meals like hot soups and cold noodle salads. The noodles are made with organic ingredients perfect for several different lifestyles
and are part of Roland Foods' line of global specialty products. The Roland Organic Soba Noodles
are super easy to cook. You simply bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a large pot. Add soba noodles.
Once the water comes back to a boil, lower heat and simmer for 3 minutes or until tender.
Drain the noodles and rinse them with cold water, and then they're really for your recipe.  I made garlic noodles using Roland Organic Soba Noodles, and they were divine! Perfect to make when you're invited to an event or an easy meal to enjoy this summer.
