REESE HEART TO HEART KITCHEN

This post is in collaboration with Reese Specialty Foods and Rinck Advertising. 

I’ve always LOVED artichokes and I love sharing my favorite easy at-home meals with you guys so I was super excited about this collab with Reese Specialty Foods!

Artichoke hearts are a pretty common ingredient but have you ever tried Hearts of Palm?

Reese Hearts of Palm are known as a delicacy around the world. They are easy to use and have some amazing health benefits!

Reese has been America’s most trusted name in gourmet specialty ingredients for almost a century! Whenever cooking at home, taste, quality and affordability are all important to us. Reese strives to bring quality to the kitchen by providing the highest quality products from different corners of the world.

Have you ever tried Reese Hearts of Palm?? What are you waiting for!? What I love most about Reese is that all their Hearts of Palm products are Non-GMO Project Verified! They’re a great protein replacement and are a fun way to add some health in your favorite meal! They’re also rich in potassium! Try tossing some in your salad for extra flavor, serve them as a side with your main dish or deep-fry some for a delicious, crunchy snack!

Being the huge foodie that I am, I decided to incorporate Reese Hearts of Palm in two ways for our family meal. My dad and I cook together all the time and I love spending time with my family while we prepare a meal together, catch up on life and have just great old-fashioned “family time”.

This time, I was really excited to mix things up by adding a few artichokes and Hearts of Palm into some of our favorite dishes! Reese has a great variety of both artichokes and Hearts of Palm.

For these recipes, I used:

We decided to make two dishes that pair really well together- pizza and salad! A savory, mouth-watering pizza and a delicious & fresh heart-y salad!
