When I first moved to Gloucester this is where Sean took me for a slice of Pizza on one of our walks to Stage Fort Park.  I loved it.

I am sad to say it has been 2 years since that slice but last night we ordered a Large Greek Salad and a Small Veggie Calzone.  They were super awesome and substituted spinach for the broccoli.  We were told dinner would be here in 30 minute.  It only took 20 minutes to get here (on a Friday night at peak dinner time hours).

IT WAS FABULOUS!!!  It was more than enough food for all 3 of us.  Robert, who was like a bottomless pit, ate everything I put on his tray. Next time we will order the small calzone and a small salad.

I look forward to trying more items off their menu.

The juice was smooth and full bodied.  The first sip was delightful.  The second sip I felt like I was getting juice from the fruit.  By the end of the cup I drank I felt like I just had the most delicious orange I had ever tasted.

I love these pouches.  I got them on a recommendation of a friend since our little guy loves the Earths Best pre-made pouches.  I now can purée what ever we eat and our little guy can enjoy a snack on the go without having to stop and feed him other than regular meals.  Is a cost effective way to give the little guy a snack.  The open from the bottom and hold about 3.3 ozs without having a hard time closing.  But I haven’t mastered the “do it yourself” pouch yet.  They are fairly easy to clean as well.  Overall, I am very satisfied with the pouches.

Review: UNREAL54 Candy Coated Chocolates with Peanuts

UNREAL_54_Closed

A refreshing chocolate covered peanuts treat with a thin candy shell.  With the first one I could taste more peanut than chocolate.  It was a nice blend.  The candy shell is colored with the color that are naturally occurring in veggies.  You can’t taste it and the colors definitely look much more festive than the classic “M&Ms”.  The chocolate isn’t as sweet as the chocolate in the UNREAL77 Peanut Butter Cups.  It tastes closer to pure chocolate with a little hint of sugar.  The peanuts taste freshly roasted.

The chocolate is smooth on first bite.  The flavor is a nice combination of peanut butter and Chocolate with each bite.  The peanut butter is a little grainy but reminds me of eating all natural peanut butter.  I did think it tasted a lot like a peanut butter cup that is chocked full of all the “junk”.

FAST – Chocolate Almond Cheesecake

Oreo Pie Shell ❤❤❤♡♡

 

I decided to experiment with Christmas Dessert.  I knew that trying to open presents, eat breakfast, get the little guy ready and make the desserts I would be pressed for time.  So when I was at the store I noticed that Philly Cream Cheese has a new product, ready to eat Classic Cheesecake in a tub.  All you have to do is stir, spread into a pre-made graham cracker shell and serve.  WOW so easy.  Then while I was in the baking aisle I noticed that Duncan Hines has a new icing where you can mix together flavors into the containers of Flavor Starter icing.  I calculated the oz in the icing container and the tub of cheese cake and viola I made a delicious creation.

INGREDIANTS:

1 container – Philly Cream Cheese Classic Cheesecake

3 packets – Chocolate Almond Duncan Hines Flavor pack

1 – Pre-made Oreo Pie Shell

1/4 cup melted semi sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

Melt the Chocolate chips in 20 – 30 second intervals (this will keep the chocolate from burning) in the microwave.  then set aside.

Open the container of cheesecake filling and split half into a large mixing bowl.  Mix 1 packet at a time.  At first it will look like it wont mix in but keep at it because it will start to blend very well.

Add half of the remaining cheesecake mix to the large mixing bowl and add one more packet and repeat

Add the remaining cheesecake mix into the large mixing bowl and add the last flavor packet.

Once that is all blended together smoothly add the melted chocolate and stir until it breaks up into little flakes in the mixture.

Spread into the Oreo shell and it is ready to serve.

** I recommend putting it in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving to help set everything together.

Everyone in the family loved this creation and I loved how easy it was to mix everything together.  This dessert would also be a wonderful last minute “oops I forgot the dessert” creation.
