  1. The toughest decision I make some days: which Ukrop’s salad is my favorite

    I had a work luncheon recently and knew exactly what to bring to please the crowd— Ukrop’s Chicken Salad with famous White House Rolls.  It’s funny, when Richmond folks see the Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods salad container, it’s a reassuring sign—like an old family friend that’s always there at every event.

    Even though Martin’s purchased Ukrop’s Super Markets, the Ukrop’s brand is remains behind to reassure us all that the flavors we’ve grown to love are still here for us to enjoy!

    Old Fashioned Potato Salad, Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad and Southern Watergate Salad are just a few of the amazing salads I take to luncheons or have on hand at the house for weekend get-togethers.

  2. Ukrop’s Sides are a mom’s best friend

    Sometimes we can barely get ourselves out the door, let alone planning for dinner at night. With two full-time jobs, three kids in two different schools, and cub scouts and other activities…by the time I actually get to sit down at night, sadly the last thing I want to think about is dinner.

    This is why Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods and Martin’s are my partners in feeding my family. Because I can pop into the store on the way to picking up my daughter from day care and grab a side of their famous Triple Cheese Macaroni and Cheese, Seasoned Green Beans, or Bacon and Cheddar Potatoes along with Grilled Chicken Breasts with BBQ sauce…and within minutes dinner is on the table.

    Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods sides are always crowd-pleasers at my house and help me nourish my family when I don’t have a lot of time or imagination.

    Now, for getting the kids to eat their vegetables. Well, that’s another story. We’ll keep you posted on that one!

  3. Tell Mom you love her with a meal

    Out of all the precious gifts my children have made me—from the cut-out valentine hearts to the pipe-cleaner flowers—my favorite gifts are the times we’ve spent together in the kitchen.

    One of my most treasured gifts this year, other than my Ukrop's Homestyle foods goodies

    It seems like even though it’s tough to get a meal together for my three little ones sometimes, the part where we get to sit down together and enjoy a few bites and talk about our day is the best reward.

    This past Mother’s Day, as my kids asked me what I wanted, one thing that topped my list was a delicious dinner. One catch: it had to be one that I didn’t have to cook and did not require me going out to a crowded restaurant.

    Two of my favorites from Ukrop’s Homestyle foods are the Ukrop’s Oven Bakes Baked Spaghetti and, of course, their Signature Long Stem Pink Rose Cake. That’s all they brought me, and I was happy as a clam. Happy Mother’s Day to all Richmond moms and grand moms out there, I hope it was relaxing, and delicious!
