Xooro Churros

I often blog about cupcakes and cookies, but I've never explored the world of Mexican desserts. But this weekend, my cousin gave me a new destination for CHURROS! The store is called Xooro in Santa Monica.

I plan to visit them...I've heard they're quite delicious. Hopefully I will get there soon.

This Is Why You're Fat

Well, this might be why I'm fat...AND why you're fat. My cousin referred me to this site - This Is Why You're Fat - this weekend. Some of the things that you'll see are completely outrageous and some are deliciously fantastic. As my sissy and I looked at the site this weekend, there were several things that we thought we should make! :)

Rainbow Sherbet

I loved sherbet as a child, and I still will crave it every so often. Sometimes orange, sometimes lime, sometimes pineapple, and a lot of times rainbow.

There's only one drawback with rainbow's not pretty when it melts. But...can you think of a better way to show children what happens when you mix all the colors of the rainbow?

Turkey Hill Ice Cream Sandwiches

I'm on a mission for ice cream sandwiches. Epicurious listed Turkey Hill Ice Cream Sandwiches as their top-rated ice cream sandwich, so I'm so wanting to try this.

I'm also looking for their first runner up - the Nestle Super Sandwich. I might have a harder time finding this one - it looks like the ones they sell at arenas and stadiums. But I might find it at my local gas station convenience store, huh?

We'll see. I'll report when I find them to tell you how delicious they were. :)

Canada Dry Green Tea Ginger Ale

We found a new iteration of Ginger Ale this weekend - Canada Dry Green Tea Ginger Ale. My brother tried it and reported back to me: "It tastes exactly how you think it would taste."

I asked, "Ginger ale mixed with green tea?" He nodded his head.

So if you're ever in the mood for both, Canada Dry has got the perfect product for you. Details here.

Portillo's - A Taste of California!

I don't eat red meat, but I still gave this place a chance. Of course, they have to have their Italian Beef sandwiches and their Chicago hot dogs. But it turns out that they have quite the selection on their menu. Lots of chicken and fish options, and even a veggie sandwich and lots of soups and salads. You can check them out here.

Most of their stores are in Illinois, but they have two Cali locations - both here in Southern California (Buena Park and Moreno Valley).

I've heard only good things about their Italian Beef sandwich, so I'm guessing it's a MUST TRY. And if you can't make it out to one of their restaurants, they have Italian Beef Sandwich kits available. They're making it easy for you - just try it already!!

So it might be something for you to check out. Free chocolate! Info here...or just visit one of their stores.

This is not helping my addiction to their Roasted Almond Truffle!!!
