Walkers Shortbread

Walkers Shortbread is a family owned company that started in 1898, in the village of Aberlour, Speyside, in the heart of the Scottish Highlands and remains there to this day. By baking in small batches, using the same simple recipe that founder Joseph Walker created, ensures that classic taste for which Walkers are famed. Made with only four ingredients: flour, pure creamery butter, sugar, and salt. Walkers products contain absolutely NO Artificial flavorings, colors, or preservatives. Which, as a consumer, I appreciate.

I love shortbread cookies. It’s something about the simplicity of the ingredients that create a uniquely sweet flavor. Every bite of a Walkers Shortbread cookie creates a moment of indulging in a scrumptious treat.

Walkers bakes an extensive selection of pure butter shortbread in a variety of flavors and sizes. My personal favorites are the Shortbread Fingers, Shortbread Rounds, Chocolate Chip Shortbread and a few others. Every pure butter shortbread of Walkers has a perfect, crumbly texture, that melts-in-your-mouth.

  • The Shortbread Fingers are baked in a square and cut into “fingers”.
  • The Shortbread Rounds are traditional shortbread adorned with the Scottish thistle.
  • The Chocolate Chip Shortbread is a timeless delight. Traditional shortbread and luscious chunks of dark chocolate create a certain indulgence in a real treat.

Discover A New Holiday Tradition At Frisch’s

Discover a New Holiday Tradition at Frisch’s Big Boy this year. Recently, I was invited to dinner at Frisch’s and to a performance of the Nutcracker, presented by the Cincinnati Ballet, at the Aronoff Center. Little did I know at the time, that I will discover a new holiday tradition for my family and friends to enjoy.

At Frisch’s we ate a sampling of their holiday dinner menu items; Carved Turkey, Country Fried Chicken, Roast Beef, Country Fried Steak, and Meatloaf. Served with Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Rich Gravy, and Farm Fresh Green Beans. Served up family style, since we had a bunch of my blogger friends from the area attending as well. It’s hard to choose a favorite since I liked them all. All dinners are available for $7.99.

Check out how delicious these dinners look in the picture below.

A New Holiday Tradition

For dessert, we were introduced to the new Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake. Frisch’s classic dessert, the Hot Fudge Cake, has received a holiday twist. If you love the original hot fudge cake, then you will definitely be in love with the peppermint hot fudge cake. Put it this way; I am not a fan of peppermint and I loved the Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake. The ice cream is the perfect sweetness. The peppermint chips sprinkled atop the whipped cream with cherry, is not overpowering as some peppermints can be. It is the perfect combination of ice cream layered between warm chocolate cake, hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry sprinkled with candy cane bits, for the just a hint of peppermint crunch in every bite. Chef Greg did a great job putting a holiday twist on the classic hot fudge cake.

Discover a New Holiday Tradition

The Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake is available for a limited time (until Feb. 7). This is the first time since the original dessert debuted in 1970, that it has been offered in another flavor. Don’t worry all you original Hot Fudge Cake fans out there, it’s still available in restaurants. Both the original and the limited edition peppermint hot fudge cake are $3.29.

The Nutcracker

When dinner was over, we were off to see a performance of The Nutcracker, performed by the Cincinnati Ballet, at the Aronoff Center. From the very first performance of The Nutcracker in 1974, Frisch’s has been proud to be the Ballet’s primary sponsor. Wow! That is a long time for a corporation to sponsor an event. In fact, it is one of the longest-lasting examples of corporate sponsorship in American Arts history. Frisch’s Big Boy presents The Nutcracker runs Dec. 9-18, at the Aronoff Center.

Before the show, we were able to meet with some of the ballerinas and the Nutcracker. At showtime, I quickly found my seat and settled in to watch the performance. We were surprised at the end of the show with autographs from the dancers. I really enjoyed the performance and had a wonderful evening out on the town courtesy of Frisch’s Big Boy. Another bonus of the evening, when we were leaving the ushers gave us a coupon for a free peppermint hot fudge cake at Frisch’s. Woo Hoo!! More Peppermint Hot Fudge Cake, YUMM!

Hurry!! Get to Frisch’s before Feb. 7, to try the new peppermint hot fudge cake before it is gone for good.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at Best Buy is one of the best phones to hit the market. I love the features of this phone. With the Note 7, you no longer have to worry if your phone gets wet. The Note 7 is Waterproof. It can get wet up to 5 feet of water for 30 minutes. You no longer have to use the rice in a bag method to hopefully dry out your phone, because it is waterproof.

As a busy mom and a blogger, I can use the S Pen to jot down an idea, to-do lists, appointments, draw, edit, create a GIF and so much more. It can sync with your calendar and other apps, to keep you organized.

I really liked that I know my phone is secure, and my documents, banking information and contacts are protected with the new Iris Scanner. How cool is that? Using your eye to unlock your phone instead of fingerprints, passwords or draw patterns, which you can still use to unlock your phone if you choose to. Since it is protected with the Iris Scanner, I feel more secure turning my phone into a mobile wallet. Store your credit, debit, membership and loyalty cards on your phone and pay almost anywhere you’d swipe or tap your card. Which really comes in handy when you’re in a rush.

Take great pictures and videos like a pro with a fast auto focus and a lens that lets in more light than ever before. The camera takes sharp photos and videos while on the move and in the dark. The battery is the longest-lasting battery to date and will keep you powered when your schedule is hectic and packed. The fast wireless charger will have you ready to go in no time at all.

Frisch's Western Primetime Sandwiches

Frisch’s Gets New Look & Western Primetime Sandwiches

This is created in partnership with Frisch’s Big Boy. All opinions expressed are completely my own.

Eating a meal at a Frisch’s Big Boy restaurants has been a family tradition since I was a small child. My grandparents ate there, my parents and now I take my family to Frisch’s for good food at an affordable price.  I recently had the opportunity to visit the newly remodeled Covington, KY location to taste the new Frisch’s Western Primetime Sandwiches.

Frisch's Western Primetime Sandwiches

Frisch’s New Look

A Big Change happening is when you walk in the front door your hostess greets you with “Welcome to MY Frisch’s” because it is “Our” Frisch’s. The one where we have eaten many meals and made memories at. I love and completely agree with Frisch’s motto, which is displayed at the entrance, “At Frisch’s Good Fun Happens Over Great Food Served by Friendly Faces”.

Big Boy gets a new 21st-century make-over. Big Boy will no longer be holding their signature sandwich on advertising, he will be shown from the chest up. The iconic, Big Boy holding their signature sandwich is up front and center by the door for everyone to take a selfie with. I tried to find an old photo of my family with Frisch’s Big Boy but was unable to locate it.

The entry really stands out in this bright red and gray accent and the Big Boy statue is prominently featured under the Frisch’s Big Boy sign. The colors continue inside with a light gray on the walls. The colorful gray and red booths with Edison lights above create the perfect setting. The Kids even have their own section featuring a Coloring Center, where kids and parents can color a picture and hang it on the clips inside the center and have their artwork as a feature in the restaurant. You can’t forget about your roots. Frisch’s has a memories wall of favorites over the years. Like pumpkin pie and their signature Big Boy sandwich, to comics, and old designs. Check out some of the changes in the picture below.

Frisch's Western Primetime Sandwiches

One of the best changes that Frisch’s made is the new menu featuring three New Primetime Sandwiches. This is your Exclusive first look at Frisch’s Western Primetime Sandwiches!

Frisch's Western Primetime Sandwiches

Frisch’s Western Primetime Trio

The Western Primetime Sandwiches include the Cheeseburger, Grilled Chicken, and Crispy Chicken. They all feature REAL premium cheddar cheese, hickory-smoked bacon, three hand-breaded onion rings, and Frisch’s new tangy Double B Low n Slow barbecue sauce, made with no high-fructose syrup, on a brioche bun.

Chef Greg Grisanti, director of research and development (Head-Chef) for Frisch’s said “I am thrilled with how our new barbecue sauce has come together; it has just the right level of spice balanced by sweetness from our blend of real honey and brown sugar that our customers are sure to enjoy. Not only do they taste great, they are made with fresh ingredients made every day in our commissary.”

Burger- A one-third pound premium ground beef, REAL-melted cheddar cheese, hickory-smoked bacon, three onion rings, and Double B low & slow barbecue sauce, on a brioche bun.

Grilled Chicken- A lightly seasoned chicken breast, REAL cheddar cheese, hickory-smoked bacon, three hand-breaded onion rings, and Double B Low n Slow barbecue sauce, on a brioche bun.

Crispy Chicken- A hand-breaded chicken breast seasoned in their new marinade, REAL cheddar cheese, hickory-smoked bacon, three hand-breaded onion rings, Double B Low n Slow barbecue sauce, on a brioche bun.

All of the Frisch’s Western Primetime Sandwiches were great when I sampled them. It was hard to pick a favorite but I am a burger and bacon kind of gal. The Crispy Chicken was just the right amount of crunchy. The grilled chicken was juicy, so you see it is hard to choose a favorite. I will just have to order them again to decide. I will be taking my family to Frisch’s this weekend so we all can experience Frisch’s Western Primetime Sandwiches.

In addition to their new western primetime sandwiches, Chef Grissanti created a signature Summertime Citrus Salad for the salad bar. Baby Spinach leaves, Crumbled Feta Cheese, sliced Red Onions, Mandarin Oranges, sliced Roasted Almonds, topped with a Raspberry Vinaigrette. Look for the Frisch’s F on the serving utensil to indicate which items are in the signature Summertime Citrus Salad

The Frisch’s Big Boy Restaurants Western Primetime Sandwiches are available at all locations. Don’t worry The Classic, The Mushroom Swiss, and BLT Primetime Burgers are still on the menu.

TESSEMAE’S All-Natural Dressing & Marinade Review

Most moms, like me, want to feed their family a healthy and delicious meal, but sometimes that is hard to do. I wanted to find a healthier alternative to the regular name brand dressing, marinades, and condiments that we find in the grocery store. My family loves their condiments and dressings. I just wanted to serve them a healthier version. That’s where Tessemae’s All-Natural comes in.

This review is sponsored in partnership with  Tessemae’s & Bloggin Mamas. All opinions expressed are unbiased and completely my own.

Tessemae’s All-Natural Dressing and Marinades are perfect for eating and living a healthy lifestyle. Their mission is to provide simple and delicious food made with real ingredients and no preservatives. Tessemae’s began with a simple recipe created by Tesse, the founders’ mom, and used throughout their childhood. Serving her family a dressing full of artificial ingredients just was not an option. Most moms agree that we don’t want to feed our family food with artificial ingredients. Real food and ingredients matter.

Tessemae’s All Natural Dressing and Marinade

Tessemae's All-Natural

 

The name Tessemae’s All-Natural says it all. The dressings and marinades are USDA organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, and Whole30 approved. There is no added sugar or xantham gum ever. Some flavors are dairy-free, paleo, and kosher. They make many varieties of salad dressing, marinades, and condiments with real ingredients. Which as a mom is great. I know what I am feeding my family. It’s nice when you read and can pronounce the ingredients on a label.

Tessemae’s four flavors of dressing and marinade reviewed are Honey Balsamic, Green Goddess, Lemon Garlic, and Balsamic.
