Enjoy wining and dining with Evine and the Deen Brothers giveaway #EvineEntertains

I have a secret to share. I don’t like to cook! I used to be a prolific cook and baker but I’ve gotten lazy and prefer to do the minimum. No longer having extra mouths to feed I make sure it’s easy for my husband and I. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like to eat or entertain. I just do it the easy way. Big salads and fruit bowls are easy and should please everyone. Thanks to the shopping channel Evine and Deen Brothers I have new products and easy ways to do this. #EvineEntertains #EvinePartner.


French Bull Melamine Two-tone Serving Bowl, 13″ Melamine Salad Servers, set of Mini Bowls

Recently we went to the local farmer’s market to see what we could bring to a casual dinner at a friend’s house on a lake. The end of summer brings some of our favorites like tomatoes and small cucumbers, local peaches, end of the season blueberries and strawberries. Putting together a salad and a bowl of fruit to bring was a breeze.

French Bull Melamine Two-tone Serving Bowl, 13″ Melamine Salad Servers, set of Mini Bowls

French Bull is a company that sells on Evine that has beautiful colorful melamine products for serving. The 12.5″ Melamine Two-tone Serving Bowl comes in a choice of purple/turquoise or pink/orange and complements the brightness of fruits and vegetables as well as livens up a bowl of chips, popcorn, or corn chips. What I truly love though are the French Bull Set of Two 13″ Melamine Salad Servers which come in a choice of 6 combinations. I have used these many times since I had previously bought them.

French Bull Salad Servers

Evine has sold out of the great French Bull mini Melamine Mini Bowls but I’m sure they’ll be back. The ones I have are a set of 6 mini bowls. These bright and cheerful colors and get a lot of use around my home. Hand my little ones a bowl of popcorn or Goldfish crackers in one of these bowls and they will sit quietly for a while (whew). They love the bright colors and I love the safety of these. These are all dishwasher safe and BPA-free.  (Similar set)

Paula Deen Set of Three (12 oz) Gourmet Dressings

When making a salad there’s Paula Deen’s Set of Three (12 oz) Gourmet Dressings. These are great as a marinade as well as salad and coleslaw. The three flavors are: –

  • Vidalia Onion Peppercorn which has a creamy sweet taste. Great on coleslaw or spinach salad. Even though I don’t like onions this is a delicious dressing so I’ll forgive it for having an oniony base.
  • Raspberry Vinaigrette which is my favorite. It’s a thinner light dressing and makes flavors stand out even more. My husband doesn’t like creamy things so this is perfect for him. Try it on fruit for a change too.
  • No Sugar Added Italian is recommended as a marinade as well as a tangy salad dressings. There’s no after taste which makes it a great choice. This is another that we both like.

Evine French Bull and Paula Deen dressings

Now we really want to add some fun to this gathering and that’s where Paula Deen’s sons The Deen Brothers and their Savannah Cellars wines come in. I’m a white wine drinker and certainly not a connoisseur but I find the Sauvignon Blanc to be a crispy slight sweet flavor that is easily consumed, maybe a little too easily! Here’s the official description of this wine:

Fresh, Subtle, Dry and Zesty.

Soft, delicate and refreshing with notes of white peach, green apple, white rose and lemon creme. Silky, subtle and beautifully balanced with apricot and lime zest to cleanse the palate.

The Deen Brothers Savannah Cellars Sauvignon Blanc wines

The Deen Brothers partnered with an award winning master vintner to develop the wines they sell. They are sold in sets of 3, 6 or 12 and you can even order a monthly subscription. A Sauvignon Blanc wine is to be consumed when young, this isn’t a wine that tastes better with aging so you can dig in right away!
