I’m a Glory Girl!

Have you ever heard of Glory Foods?  Their tagline should be “Helping Folks Fake Homecooking” because you can seriously get away with throwing this stuff in a pot and saying you made it from scratch.

This may come as a shock to you, but when I first got married 95% of the meals I cooked came from a can or box and 95% of the time it was Glory’s brand. Yep it’s true. Ask my hubby. We were young, flat out broke and in love.  I cooked just about everything in my handy dandy electric skillet or the one stock pot we had. I look back now and laugh at just how love struck we were. Nothing else mattered. I think I was married for about a year before I started really building my kitchen & spice stash and cooking from scratch.

I was introduced to Glory foods when I was chatting on a popular hair forum and the ladies were talking about how incredible Glory products were. The next day I picked up a Rotisserie chicken, a can of Glory collard greens, Glory black eyed peas, glory candied yams and a box of their cornbread mix. Dinner was done in a matter of minutes and tasted like grandma had stopped by! (Dang I wish I had that plate right now) This was one of the first meals I made in our new home.

Glory Foods got us through a lot of affordable, fast, southern-style meals back then and I still love and use their products today.  Those prewashed and chopped collards greens around Thanksgiving time are a LIFESAVER. OMG please get those greens! It will save you so much time.

If you’ve never tried Glory foods then you are missing out honey! I have never had food come from a can or box yet still taste homemade and seasoned to perfection. They also have a ton of fresh packed and already cut produce as well like squash, mustard greens, sweet potatoes, and lots more. You can check out the inventory below. I love grilling chicken breasts, cooking those sweet potatoes in brown sugar, butter and cinnamon and steaming a side of that yellow squash and zucchini. It’s such a fresh, home cooked dinner that is ready super quick since you don’t have to do all that chopping.

Glory was so nice and sent me this basket full of their yummy, soulful products. I had just about tried everything already though.

I’m not the only one who sings the praises of Glory foods. Check out their facebook fanpage and get in on the Glory love!

 I love you Glory!!!

Thank you for making me look like the best new wife ever and for saving me time in the kitchen!!!

  1. I used their collards for your recipe (I didn’t feel like doing all that washing lol) and they came out great. I might get some for the Christmas meal.

  2. I’m obsessed with Glory food items! I’ve tried the canned collard green and potatoes. I tried the fresh packaged collard greens for the first time last year, and they were delicious!

  3. I have only used their chopped fresh collard greens (using your recipe, of course) and I LOVE them! I just stick them in my pressure cooker and let em go! I really wish I could find some of their other bagged items like the squash and sweet potatoes. My store is limited to the greens. I’m not too much into their canned stuff, I still think there’s too much sodium. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Can’t find the prepackaged items in my Los Angeles neighborhood but I do love the canned products and boxed mixes! If any Los Angelenos read this and you know of a store that sells the prepackaged Glory items in LA please share that info.
