Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament Review: Lyndhurst, New Jersey

Wednesday, July 10, 2019
I was looking for a review of Medieval Times ages ago and could not find the information I needed. I wanted an honest opinion on what age group this show was for, what it entailed, and how the food was (that's just how I am, you know?). And since I didn't find exactly what I was looking for out there, I decided to see the show for myself and bring you my very own review (because I know I can't be the only one out there wondering what Medieval Times is all about!). This was not written as a sponsored post, but after I published it, I was invited back by the folks at Medieval Times to see their show again, this time featuring their queen (gasp!)So if you haven't seen the show in a while, you MUST go see the queen!

Fabulous Frozen Treats to Try This Summer: More Finds from The Fancy Food Show

Sunday, June 23, 2019
Have you ever looked at the ingredients on a container of ice cream? Not every container, of course, but many of them (especially the popular brands) contain calcium sulfate and mono and diglycerides to keep them from melting or to keep ice crystals from forming. Just google 'why ice cream doesn't melt' and you'll see what I mean. Well, guess what? I'm tired of it. I'm tired of the FDA approved additives, and I'm ready to pay a little extra for something better. Last month I attended The Fancy Food Show in New York City, and I was able to sample some amazing brands of ice cream and frozen novelties that I think you should know about, too. This isn't a sponsored post, it's just me sharing my thoughts with you because that's how I roll. Read on to hear about some new brands and products worth trying!
