Saving the Day with Danone® Products at Publix!

A Waffle Breakfast Board would not be complete without the signature sides of luscious fruits, yogurt, homemade granola, and jam.
My family loves a quick and easy meal, especially during the weekend, so we have been making some type of board every Saturday or Sunday.
This week we decided to create this graceful and gorgeous spread with the help of Danone. I was so enthralled by the way it turned out.
It is bright, tasty and popping with colors. There is truly something for everyone.
Danone has been a part of my family for a long time, and I continue to buy their products for myself all the time.
Their products are an amazing snack and are definitely a quick on-the-go breakfast, school, or work lunch essential.
With that being said, I’ve created many phenomenal desserts using Activia® and Two Good® yogurts, such as parfaits, making incredible salad dressing, using it in my baked goodies, and smoothies.
It is such a versatile product packed with delicious ingredients. I also picked up Stok® Cold Brew and So Delicious® Coconutmilk Creamer.
Also, if you spend $20 on participating products you will receive a $5 Publix gift card and a chance to win the grand prize, a Vitamix Blender.
I love the Save the Day Stack the Savings promotion at Publix because everyone loves an amazing deal, and Publix definitely has it.
You can purchase so many delicious products that you likely already use, so check it out. Do not miss this excellent opportunity, because it is a great one!
In addition to my Waffle Breakfast Board in the morning, ifyou genuinely love a good iced coffee and silky creamer, Publix has your back.
Well, I need my coffee hot every single morning, but my college son adores his coffee iced, no exceptions, with a generous amount of creamer.
Most of the time when he is home, I get him excellent Stok Black Unsweetened cold brew coffee.
As well as a complementary sweetener such as the rich andcreamy coconutmilk creamer from So Delicious.
They are both qualifying products for the Save the Day Stack the Savings promotion at Publix.
Nevertheless, this iced coffee and creamer naturally makean outstanding addition to our Waffle Breakfast Board!
Easy and Quick Salad Dressing
When it comes to lunch or dinner, one of my favorite multi-purpose salad dressings is this incredibly creamy dressing using Two Good plain low-fat yogurt.
I sincerely love it with romaine lettuce, radishes, and cherry tomatoes.
However, if you have some tomatoes and cucumbers, this dressing instantly makes one delicious salad. Perhaps use it to make a pasta salad.
Also, serve it on the platter with vegetables like peppers, carrots, cucumber, etc., you would be surprised how tasty it is.
Yogurt Lemon Dressing
- 1/2 cup Two Good plain low-fat yogurt
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp garlic, minced
- 2 tsp. dried parsley
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- Salt to taste
Mix ingredients in one medium-size bowl. Set aside for about 15 minutes to allow all flavors to develop.

What a better way to start September than with warm and appetizing sage and brown butter gnocchi. This delightful dish screams comfort food to me. Fall food should be comforting, don’t you agree?
Well, I genuinely love Autumn and everything that comes with the Fall season; Autumn foliage, tasty food and the fragrant air that smells more like cinnamon and spice.
Anyhow, I wanted to let you all knowthat I partnered with Minerva Dairy Butter once againto bring you one more amazing recipe.
By the way, did you know that Minerva Dairy, is America’s oldest family-owned creamery? They just revamped their brand and packaging this year in honor of their 125th anniversary.
That is impressive, my friends. I absolutely love their story as well as working with a brand like Minerva Dairy.
So, after thinking of some wonderful and yummy ideas, this classic recipe popped in my head. It is sincerely loved all around the world and most importantly my family loves it.
It was a win-win situation here. I post homemade recipes that my family dearly likes.
You will never find fake food whatsoever. I style food that I post here, of course. However, after each photoshoot, we devour food that I made. Every so often I need to heat it up but after doing this for nine years, they know the drill.
That being said, we enjoy gnocchi prepared with Minerva Butter. I love unsalted but for savory sauces or any other dishes, I use garlic and herbs to give a bit more character.
It’s extremely delicious. Sea salt Minerva Dairy Butter is very tasty as well. I love smearing on my morning toast. I’m more of savory breakfast or brunch gal.
Nevertheless, I heartily hope youguys like these sage and brown butter gnocchi. They are reallyunbelievably tasty.
Hey, if you make Sage and Brown Butter Gnocchi or any other recipe from my site, please tag me on Instagram. @sandraseasycooking… Thank you so much in advance!
Sage and Brown Butter Gnocchi is easy, tasty a perfect dinner.
- 1 pound potato gnocchi, you may make your own if you wish
- 1 tsp. Lemon juice
- Salt, and Black Pepper to taste
Butter Sage Sauce
- 5 tablespoons Minerva Dairy garlic and herbs butter
- 6 sage leaves, thinly sliced or leave them whole
- 1/2 cup shaved or grated parmesan cheese
- Melt the butter in a large skillet over high heat. Cook, stirring until the butter develops brown flecks and smells nutty. Watch it closely to keep the butter solids from burning. Turn down the heat and add sage and fry it for 30 to 40 seconds. This takes a few minutes or less so be close by. Transfer the butter and sage to another bowl.
- Bring a larger pot of salted water to a rolling boil then add the gnocchi. When it floats to the surface it is done. Allow it for about half a minute more in the boiling water before removing the gnocchi from water.
- Scoop the gnocchi from the pot with a spider or slotted spoon, transfer to the skillet and toss until some of the brown-butter flecks stick to the gnocchi. Be careful and stay a bit back.
- Pour over brown butter and sage and keep tossing gnocchi.
- Add a few tablespoons of the gnocchi cooking water and a gentle squeeze of lemon, about 1 teaspoon or so; toss again.
- Remove from the heat and add half of the cheese. Divide among bowls and top with the cheese.
- Serve it with a bowl of greens such as Cesar salad.
You may use any pasta for this dish, even ravioli as long as you have sage and herbs and garlic butter.
