I haven't tried HG yet, but I'm having a party with Jennifer next week. I'm really looking forward to it and can't wait to make our 4 meals in 4 minutes. We are also making the pumpking cheesecake ball and it sounds so yummy!

our absolute favorite is the potato soup! i know it's seasonable, but it can't be easier to make and its better than any other kind i have tried. add some cheese, bacon and chives, and its pure heaven!

HG is delicious! I have been selling it myself for 6 years! I absolutely love the Garlic Lemon Seasoning. And in the winter time my husband and I eat the Bonnie's Blue Ribbon Chili like it's going out of style!!
