Yoplait Whips! Frozen!

By now you have probably seen a Yoplait Whips! commercial that shows you can have their product as yogurt mousse or as frozen yogurt. It's true! I've tried it and I'm hooked. It's a healthier alternative to ice cream, and it's really good!

Now my search is on for the Chocolate Raspberry flavor. I think that's going to be really good!

Consider Your Childhood Ancient History

...and it wasn't that long ago!!

They've come up with a list of things that are obsolete (or almost at that point). See how many things you can check off and laugh about. That's right...laugh about it, because this will take you on a fun trip down memory lane!

Romaine Lettuce Recall

This has got to be the worst timing ever. I just came back from lunch at Souplantation, and what news story catches my eye? Romaine lettuce is voluntarily recalled here in California.

Did I eat romaine during lunch? Yes. Oh great.

Ritz Crackerfuls

I'm pretty sure you're familiar with Ritz Bits sandwiches. But have you ever wished that Ritz made bigger cracker sandwiches? You're in luck. Now they have Ritz Crackerfuls - long rectangle Ritz crackers (whole wheat Ritz) filled with either cheddar or four cheese!

Village Pizzeria

I just came from a trip to San Diego with the family, and while I love my NY pizza, I think I found a West Coast fix! Yay for me!

For a while, my brother has been telling me about a pizzeria in San Diego (more specifically, on Coronado) that ships NY bottled water to make their NY pizza crust! One of the girls from work also raved about the same place, so I had to try it. The name? Village Pizzeria.

We ordered: Pizza, their caprese sandwich, fried zucchini, mud pie, and zeppoli. Yummm....

As we drove over the bridge to leave Coronado, I was already planning my trip back.
Luckily I have a conference there in October!

Coconut M&Ms

Yes, they do exist. I have some sitting on my desk right now. Unfortunately, the bag has not yet been opened, so I am unable to tell you if they're delicious or not.

I will update soon though.

Pillsbury Simply...

Pillsbury has a new refrigerated cookie dough - Pillsbury Simply...

What's the difference between these and their other cookie doughs? Pillsbury Simply... uses the same ingredients that you would use in homemade cookies.

Should be delicious - I'll try them when I find them!

Carmela Ice Cream

I read about this place that makes ice cream sandwiches - Carmela Ice Cream. Lucky for me, they make their rounds through local farmer's markets in LA. I'll be visiting them for dessert this weekend...

I hope it's good. At least it will be relatively close to home. :)

Crumbles Cookies - Corona, CA

When we went to Sweet Harts, one of the girls mentioned Crumbles bakery. I'm not sure if I got the right store, but I found a bakery called Crumbles in Corona, CA and tried it out anyway.

The cookies are really good! They have a different selection everyday - their everyday cookies and daily specials. I liked their Raspberry Tea Cake - it was a cross between a snowball (sans powdered sugar) and a linzer tart. I think I'll be going back for more! I want to try their chocolate chip cookie. Check them here.

The Kitchen

There a little place in Los Angeles called The Kitchen. When I heard about it, I thought it was a restaurant, but it's a catering company that has a take-out counter.

I've been there several times in the past couple weeks, and I'm only in LA on the weekends, so that should tell you something. I've bought A LOT of dessert - bars, cookies, cookie sandwiches, brownies, cupcakes - and tried some of their food. It's all really good! Their box lunches are so cute too. I think that I'll be using them the next time I cater something.
