Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken


Found this recipe on Pinterest, and decided to give it a try, for this week’s Crock Pot dinner. I love the combo of honey and garlic together. I made the recipe almost exactly, though I added onion and put less lemon juice in it. I served it over some Jasmine rice. It turned out okay, though it seemed a bit bland, which made me sad. The garlic flavour was perfect, then again, we always put more then is called for in a recipe LOL But we barely taste the honey flavour 😦 We even added Sriracha to it, after tasting it, to give it a bit of oompf. I had high hopes for this recipe. I will definitely try another recipe sometime though, but we’ll be passing on adding this one into the rotation. The search continues!!

Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew


Tried this nitrogen infused cold brew today. We first taste tested a shot to see if we’d like it, and it’s smooth enough to drink black. We opted to try it with a splash of cream, and there’s also the option to add sweet cream to it, if you prefer. We liked the taste and will definitely have it again, but only certain locations are offering it. For us, it was the location down by the QEW and Hurontario in Mississauga. You can look up other locations in the GTA by checking out the Starbucks.ca website.

Cheers Everyone!! 🙂

Starbucks Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino

So I didn’t get the chance to try out the Unicorn Lemonade from Starbucks a couple weeks ago…boo. But when I heard about the Midnight Mint Mocha, I knew I wasn’t going to miss this one!! Mint + chocolate is a magical combination, and this frapp hit it out of the park. I will definitely get another one next week during their 1/2 price frapps happy hour. Really hope they add it to their permanent menu, since to me, this is WAY better then the Java Chip Frapp. If you love mint and chocolates, then be sure to give this one a try, before it disappears – like the elusive unicorn…

Cheers Everyone!! 🙂

Bark Thins Dark Chocolate Coconut with Almonds Snacking Chocolate

The name is a mouthful isn’t it?? But a flavourful one at that!! My hubby and I really enjoyed these. We love almost anything covered in dark chocolate though…especially coconut and almond!! They’re a great light snack when you’re craving chocolate but don’t want a lot. We’ll be enjoying these again sometime for sure. Grab a bag yourselves and see for yourselves…

Starbucks Cascara Latte

When the Cascara Latte first came out, I was intrigued by the description…’subtle notes of dark brown sugar and luscious maple’. So we gave it a try. It wasn’t bad and they weren’t kidding when they used the descriptor ‘subtle’. Which was fine, because I don’t like super sugary lattes more then a couple times a year. The syrup they use is made from the dried fruit of the cherry, whose seeds become the coffee beans we know and love. I may try it again sometime, but I wouldn’t say it’ll be my go-to latte. The flat white still holds that spot for now!!

Cheers Everyone 🙂

Kellogg’s Pumpkin Spice Mini-Wheats

We bought these back in the fall of last year, when we saw them in the store. I love most things pumpkin spice, so it was a no-brainer to try them out!! And they didn’t disappoint!! Now, being that it’s ‘frosted’ it was on the sweet side, but it definitely had the pumpkin spice flavour I love. If you’re into pumpkin spice, like I am, I bet you’ll enjoy this cereal too!!

Starbucks Tuxedo Mocha

This past week I saw a sign at a local Starbucks, for the Tuxedo Beverage Collection. It includes a mocha, hot chocolate and Frapp. It was for a limited time too, ending January 1st 2017. We decided to try the mocha, made from a combination of regular and white chocolate mochas and espresso. Topped with steamed milk, whipped cream, chocolate drizzle and chocolate shavings. I wasn’t sure if I would like it, since I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate. But I was pleasantly surprised. Would try it again. If you’re a fan of chocolate, I think you’ll like this concoction!!

Cheers Everyone 🙂
