Morning Star: Chipotle Black Bean Burgers

Morning Star: Chipotle Black Bean Burgers

This veggie burger has become a staple in my freezer. Not only do I eat them as my go-to veggie burger for a quick lunch or BBQ, my parents love them too! Even my brother keeps these hefty burgers stocked in his apartment’s freezer…and his is practically a carnivore! The burger has a slight spice...
Fox’s Glacier Dark Liquorice & Aniseed Flavour Sweets

Fox’s Glacier Dark Liquorice & Aniseed Flavour Sweets

These candies are so dark…seriously, jet black. Before finding Fox’s Glacier Dark Liquorice and Aniseed Sweets, I’d never seen a black hard candy…so the color and interesting flavor made we want to share it with all of you! There is an overwhelming smell of liquorice, but when you pop it in your mouth it’s warm...
Nature Valley: Granola Nut Clusters

Nature Valley: Granola Nut Clusters

This snack is so good! I’ve only tried the “Roasted Almond” flavor, but you can be sure I’ll try the rest! The almonds mixed with the granola create a great crunch and flavor combo! Great to snack on plain, or you can crumble over yogurt, or even have has a light dessert with some fruit....
Pero Family Farms

Pero Family Farms

Although I love local produce…sometimes the big company stuff looks great too! Take Pero Family Farms for example – I saw this giant package of assorted sweet peppers at the grocery store, and I just couldn’t resist. The reds, yellows, oranges, and greens – it was just so vibrant that I needed to snatch it...
Silver Secret White Tea

Silver Secret White Tea

When you want a clean, crisp tasting beverage, white tea is great option. The flavor of white tea is really mellow, and this brand of tea is fantastic because it won’t get bitter no matter how low it steeps for. I love the writing on the box, it’s nice to have some history about the...
McSteven’s White Chocolate Vanilla Mix

McSteven’s White Chocolate Vanilla Mix

I was recently cleaning out a drawer and I found this hot chocolate that I bought at the San Diego Zoo several years ago. I purchased it mainly for the cool panda graphic, but also because I had never seen a white hot chocolate mix before! It’s a completely different taste from the traditional hot...
Sheep Droppings

Sheep Droppings

I saw these in London and thought it was such a random name for a candy. However, after doing some internet research, I realized that “sheep droppings” (and other animal “droppings”) are fairly common candies. Basically they are chocolate covered balls…whether it be peanuts (New Zealand style) or truffles..just with a silly name. I like...

My friend gave me these delicious looking muffins and they taste so good! The blueberry strudel one (bottom left) is so moist and cake-like…I devoured it in a few seconds and can’t wait to go get more! SmartWorld Coffee serves organic and fair trade coffee and pastries, which I love. I always aim to use...
Boudin San Fransisco Sourdough

Boudin San Fransisco Sourdough

The great thing about cooking is that the simplest foods, like a loaf of bread, can seem whimsical when made in a different way. I was looking through my old vacation pictures and stumbled upon these animal shaped sourdough loaves from Boudin Sourdough in San Fransisco, California. I went to that city with my parents...
Harrods Strawberry Tea

Harrods Strawberry Tea

On my last trip to London, I fond this tea at Harrods. It is the best smelling tea I have ever encountered! Black tea with strawberry leaves…it is so aromatic that you might forget to drink it while you’re enjoy the summery scent! This is a perfect gift for any tea lovers in your life...
Angelina's Hot Chocolate

Angelina’s Hot Chocolate

One of the thickest and most decadent hot chocolates I’ve ever had was at Angelina in Paris, France. It was a long wait to grab a table, but the restaurant is worth checking out. This decadent drink just might make anyone slip into a diabetic coma! The restaurant also offers pastries and some food. 226...
