Shirley J Review and Giveaway

I love to cook and experiment with flavors, sauces, and ingredients. I am still learning as I go along, so I like to make very easy to not too difficult recipes. Shirley J offered me the chance to review their universal sauce and I was happy to accept!

Shirley J products can unlock your creativity. They allow you to prepare delicious dinners your family will love in minutes, not hours. You can create gourmet dishes every bit as good as your favorite restaurant. In addition they are budget friendly. Meals can even be created using leftovers.

At the heart of Shirley J is their Universal Sauce. It is the basis for everything from creamy soups and sauces to smooth gravies, family-pleasing casseroles and literally hundreds of recipes. All foolproof so you’re free to have fun in the kitchen again.

All you do is add water to their miracle Universal Sauce, stir and heat, and you have a savory, velvety smooth sauce or soup that won’t separate or curdle even if simmered for hours. No more lumpy gravy, thanks to Shirley J!


I was sent the Universal Sauce to review. It is a powder product that turns into liquid when mixed with water. The bag is HUGE. It will last 6 months to a year, I swear! It came with a recipe packet that gives you lots of ideas of recipes you can use the sauce for. I started off small and made an alfredo sauce to use for pasta for dinner. It was creamy and delicious. There were no lumps and the flavor was mild and rich. I love that this product is so versatile and can be used for soups, pasta's, bbq, and so much more! It's so easy to use! The options are endless! I can't wait to try this the next time I cook!
