Tiff’s Treats: Warm Cookies from their Oven to your Door {Review}

By November 13, 2017 Everything Else

The warm cookies & cookie companions described below were complimentary and much appreciated.

The reality of the time of year we’re in hit me the other night as I got myself ready for bed. This month we’ll celebrate Thanksgiving Day then next month, Christmas! Dear 2017, where did the time go?

I’m sure that the celebratory atmosphere of this season has us thinking about unique ways to spread cheer. I often make gifts at home of both the crafty and food variety. I baked cookies years ago and am often reminded by the recipients of how good they were. I “gave” those cookies so understanding how they felt to “receive” them was slightly lost on me, until recently.

One Friday morning, not too long ago, a friendly young delivery lady walked into the shop where I work with a special delivery – – warm cookies, cold milk and other goodies, courtesy of Tiff’s Treats. Can you imagine starting the last day of the work week with that kind of pick-me-up?!

A green ribbon tied box, tucked neatly in a white branded gift bag, held the Tiff’s Mix option which included Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodle, Peanut Butter, M&M and Oatmeal Raisin. A second bag contained bottles of Mayfield 2% Milk, 1% Chocolate Milk and a container of Tiffblitz Frozen Dessert. A note was included on the box as well as small envelope with a rather generous gift card. Did I mention the part about the cookies being warm?

The cookies are baked when ordered so they arrive at their destination nice and toasty. It was a bit of a challenge trying to decide which to bite into first. I got around to tasting a little of each delicious flavor. The Snickerdoodle and Peanut Butter cookies were more toward the top of my list, however, I fell hard for the Oatmeal Raisin. It’s pretty fantastic!

I was surprised by the Tiff’s Blitz. It’s “cold vanilla ice cream blended with chunks of chocolate chip cookies and fudgy brownie bites. Topped with crumbled sugar cookies.” It’s was an unexpected but well appreciated treat. When you try this, you might want to save a little milk to wash down all of its richness. I would actually need to do this with Almond Milk or coffee.

Getting a delivery of WARM cookies as opposed to say flowers, chocolates or fruit is wonderful. (Although, I’m open to all of these). Unfortunately, I live outside of the Tiff’s Treats delivery zone so my doorbell won’t be ringing anytime soon with said WARM cookies. Until that dream comes true, I’m completely okay with the fact that I work close enough to a location that makes delivery to my shop possible.

Twisted Bourbon-ana Ice Cream Sandwiches

By July 31, 2017 Desserts, Food and Recipes, Ice Cream

I received a bottle of Four Roses Bourbon and an ingredient stipend in exchange for creating and sharing the following frozen delight. You’re welcome!

August 2nd is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day. In honor of this special occasion, and because I happened to have a gratis bottle of Four Roses Bourbon to play with, I crafted a little something my family kinda loves me for. You’re probably already wondering about the name. Well, the name is what happened when my sisters, daughter and her friend gathered around my kitchen table to taste the ice cream then toss around words that seemed fitting for the flavors. It was so much fun!

When I sat down to decide what I wanted to make, I tried to keep it familiar. We love cheesecake and banana pudding in my home so this ice cream sandwich is sort of a mashup of those two desserts with a booozy twist. Read More

“The” Birthday Party After Party

Just so you know: The celebratory experience described below included complimentary eats provided by Edgar’s Proof and Provision. Read on…

One gorgeous Sunday evening, a group of friends gathered in an intimate drinkery located on the lower level of The Georgian Terrace Hotel to celebrate the birthday of a very special blogger. I happened to be among the attendees of the event dubbed the Kentucky Derby After Party  Birthday Party. Yes, you read that right; this was an after party party for someone who truly deserves to be celebrated… Chef M.

// Next Level Deviled Eggs | Smoked Jerky with Chipotle & Soy Marinated Flank Steak

The Georgian Terrace is beyond elegant and is a favorite of Chef M of The Front Porch Gourmet and her dear husband. It’s no wonder they chose to host this special occasion at Edgar’s Proof and Provision, one of the destination’s notable dining options. As I entered the dimly lit den, it felt like I was stepping out of a blanket of daily grind into a moment of timelessness. P&P is the kind of place where one can just “be” whether that means alone, with a friend or even a group of them.

How to Taco Tuesday with Seafood and Sprouts Farmers Market

By May 9, 2017 Food and Recipes

FYI: The following experience included complimentary products and all kinds of fun!

Ordinarily on a Tuesday after work, all I want to do is hop in the car and jump on the interstate so I can avoid the RUSH part of rush hour traffic. On a Tuesday, not too terribly long ago, I made the decision to hang out with some bloggers at a media event hosted by Sprouts Farmers Market instead of going home. That meant finding a way to The Cook’s Warehouse in Midtown without getting on I-85. I’m sure you’ve heard about the bridge issue here by now. Well it’s a real thing and we ATLiens have all been working through it in our own way. Anyway, I decided to Google Map my way there and it worked out beautifully. Although the drive was slow in a couple places, I ended up arriving a bit early.

Each time I walk into The Cook’s Warehouse I have to suppress the urge to buy “all the stuff” with a one or two thing budget. Looking is always free so, as I entered the store this time, I allowed my eye to catch a couple gadgets before reaching our host for the evening. His name is Diego.

Diego has one of those magnetic personalities. He offered me an energetic welcome, then pointed me in the direction of some refreshments and light bites.  Prepared and waiting for us were Chef Tregaye Fraser’s takes on Crab Cakes and Shrimp & Grits. Both were prepared with ingredients from Sprouts Farmers Market. Part of our night featured a cooking demonstration by the Food Network personality where she showed us how she does it. Read More
