Dining Out with Red Robin’s New Interactive Allergen Friendly Menu


“The Red Robin information and gift cards have been provided by Red Robin.” I can't tell you how many time I have passed the Red Robin in Trussville, AL and not went in because I wasn't sure what they offered. I am usually big on trying new things but I hate eating alone so I just kept resisting until one day my friend said she would meet me there. I am very glad that I stopped in and then I was sad because out of the 500 locations in the US and Canada they haven't built one in the smallish town I moved to. Luckily my mom lives near the … [Read more...]

They sent one of every flavor- Fruit and Nut, Cranberry Crunch, Almond Coconut (Vegan!!!), Almond Butter (both a regular size and a 100 calorie mini bar), Peanut Butter (both a regular size and a 100 calorie mini bar), … [Read more...]

My Adventures with #BoursinCheese


I received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. As always, all opinions are my own I have always loved Boursin cheese. I saw it at Costco once and I told my husband that I had to have it. To be fair, I was six months pregnant at the time and I really wanted some crackers. So when I was offered the chance to throw a little cheese get together, I was super happy. I could not wait! I decided to try Boursin Garlic & Herbs Spreadable Cheese and Boursin Shallot & Chive Gournay Cheese. Boursin is a creamy, … [Read more...]

I rarely rave about things, but this is going to be one of those rare occasions.

I was absolutely delighted to see their cute little box of coffee beans sitting on my doorstep. BeanBox packaged four VERY freshly roasted varieties of coffee beans for me to sample.

Ruby Tuesday’s New Menu & BOGO 50% Coupon + $25 GC Giveaway


Now that my husband has been laid out from his main job, we have been eating out less.
