Wendy's Natural Cut Fries with Sea Salt


A few weeks ago I received an email from Foodbuzz for a Tastemaker opportunity - a chance to try Wendy's new Natural Cut Fries with Sea Salt.  Yes, please!  My husband and I both LOVE Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwiches, however there aren't too many Wendy's locations in St. Louis so we don't get them that often :(.  However, thankfully for us they're starting to expand back in to St. Louis!

Foodbuzz and Wendy's sent me two $10 gift cards to try out the new Natural Cut Fries with Sea Salt, suggesting that I stop by at a predetermined time.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to one of the designated times to try the fries due to a rescheduled appointment, however a morning of running errands gave me the perfect opportunity to pick up some lunch for my husband and I.

A new Wendy's just opened about 15 minutes from my house a week or so ago, so naturally there was a long line.  Well worth it though!  After finally getting to order I got a Spicy Chicken Sandwich meal for Rob (no tomato), and a Spicy Chicken Nugget meal for myself since I've been dying to try them.

Admittedly I am a big fan of fries.  Put any fry in front of me and I'll most likely eat it.  Though, I do agree that not all fries are created equal, especially when it comes to fast-food fries.  Wendy's fries have always been middle-of-the-road for me.  Not bad by any means, but not the best I've ever had.  Now that I've had the opportunity to try the new fries they've jumped up on my list.  I've always been partial to natural cut fries, plus, I would rather eat a fry seasoned with sea salt over table salt!

Overall we're fans of the fries.  Rob thought for the most part they were the same, however he was a fan of Wendy's fries to begin with.  I was a fan, but I did notice that the fries towards the top of the holder were less salty than those on the bottom.  I'm sure that was due to sitting in the bag for a few minutes before I got home, and the napkins sitting right on top, brushing off some of the salt.

I'll definitely continue to get!  Oh, and the Spicy Chicken Nuggets - amazing!  I'll definitely be getting those again as well.

Thank you Wendy's and Foodbuzz for this great opportunity!

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

Classic Monkey Bread

For a few years I made monkey bread muffins for Christmas morning, and for some reason I got out of that habit. Then we had kids and I thought I'd get back in to it, but I didn't until recently. But I recently made classic loaf Monkey Bread and realized that it's just better than muffins. It's not like a loaf is any less "complicated" to make, or really tastes different, but there is something easier about it. And I haven't had a single loaf bubble over and cause a mess in my oven! I'm so happy to have brought this back in to our lives. Not that it takes long to put together or bake, but this is the perfect lazy weekend (or Christmas morning) breakfast. I have even started the process in advance before, by cutting the biscuits and measuring the sugar and cinnamon in a bag the night before. After all, the biscuit cutting is the most time consuming part. Wake, assemble, and voila! Do you have a big crowd to feed, or kids that devour sweets? Simply

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
