Excite Your Dinner with VH Sauces + a Giveaway! #VHExcitement

With three boys in the house meal times can be hectic, there’s always so much going on during that time of day, it’s crazy!  To make things easier, I try to have  quick and easy recipes on hand and keep a cupboard stocked full of essentials like VH Sauces. 

VH Can Turn Any Meal into an Exciting Meal!

My boys are picky, picky, picky and rarely enjoy dinnertime, but one thing our whole family enjoys is PIZZA! While the boys stick to cheese or pepperoni for our adventerous one, us adults like to liven things up a little! This past weekend, we tried our first ever Indian Pizza using VH Butter Chicken Sauce as a base! Loaded with chicken, tomatoes, onion, and spinach this was no ordinary pizza and was a much welcomed change! 

VH Butter Chicken Pizza

Feeling adventurous from the Butter Chicken Pizza, we decided to give another VH recipe a try with the Korean Pork Lettuce Wraps, Here’s the recipe below, so you can try it too!
