You guys know that I like to shop… and that I like to cook… and that I like to eat. I’ve been doing a lot of those three things lately, and I’ve come across so many new things I couldn’t resist sharing!
Special K Pastry Crisps – Brown Sugar Cinnamon Flavor
Holy freakin’ wow! These are AMAZING!!!! Sara had mentioned in response to Monday’s post that I needed to try these Special K Pastry Crisps … and OMG, she was so right! They taste like light, flaky Pop Tarts and they’re only 100 calories. I could not believe how good these were! Yum-O!
Jenny Craig Cranberry Almond Barscotti
My JCC Amalia has been talking about the barscotti for a while. I kind of thought she meant “biscotti”… oh no, she meant barscotti. This is a chewy, yummy breakfast bar that has a really good almondy flavor and it’s (wait for it) topped with STREUSEL. I thought it was REALLY good… and really enjoyable with a cup of coffee. Can’t wait to get more! Jenny – I wonder if these are temporary? Let’s hope not….
Have you seen these yet? They’re TINY cucumbers that you can eat whole… they’re like the size of a smaller pickle and SO GOOD. I picked these up at Costco yesterday… and ate a TON of them already! Can’t wait to buy more! PS.. They’re VERY dippable too! Great with a tasty veggie dip like this one!
Alpine Avocado Vinaigrette
When I was at Whole Foods last weekend, I had a chance to sample this AMAZING vinaigrette! It’s so fresh and so delicious… and it’s made right here in Colorado with fresh ingredients! Click here to read the story about Alpine Avocado Vinaigrette and to order some to try yourself!
Food For Life Sprouted Bread
I’ve read on Ashley and Lauren‘s blogs about Ezekiel bread and have been so tempted to try it out. I am quite the bread lover, so I thought I’d give it a shot. I found this Food for Life 7 Sprouted Grains bread in the frozen foods section, and have enjoyed trying it. I’ve used it to add a slice of garlic bread to a pasta meal or to create a veggie sandwich. It’s really good, and definitely something to check out! Tip: I keep it in the freezer and thaw one slice at a time to avoid over-indulging…
Lauren Conrad Earrings
Ok, so I’m going to sneak a few fun non-food items in too… I just LOVE these earrings. They’re from Kohl’s (REALLY!?) from the Lauren Conrad collection. They looks great with rose gold and are super sparkly. Kohl’s always is running a sale… so you can pick them up fairly cheap! Watch out though… LC has a lot of cute jewelry! You may end up with more than just this pair…
Conair Ceramic Hairdryer
My hairdryer decided to give out about a week ago… on a day when I needed it no less. So, I ran to Target to get its replacement and found this fabulous dryer from Conair. Why do I like it? It air blows from it sort of gently… and it seems like a much more expensive dryer than it is. Also, the cord retracts into the handle, which is always a bonus. Total upgrade on the hairdryer… for the price of a regular one!
Pier One Holiday Napkins
I got these super-cute napkins from my friend Donna, and I think I’m going to have to bust them out this weekend. She picked them up at Pier One who always seems to have cute holiday stuff! Halloween is just around the corner, and where better to use such cute napkins than a Wine and Cheese Game night? (Alecia and Deb – You get to use these! Get excited!)
