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!

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my! But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?   Check !  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do !  Pumpkin?  Well of course !  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try! One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix

Foodbuzz 24x24: A Very Hungry Caterpillar First Birthday Party

It's hard to believe that my baby boy is technically no longer a baby anymore!  It seems like just yesterday I was a nervous wreck on our way to the hospital, and now all of a sudden I'm planning a birthday party! Even before Ty was born though, I knew I wanted to do a Very Hungry Caterpillar party.  I'm not exactly sure what made me think of it, but one day I was sitting in his room and imagining reading him the first book I bought for him.  Yep - The Very Hungry Caterpillar ! There is something about the classic children's book that lends itself very well to entertaining.  Generally speaking, the focal point of any event (aside from the reason for celebration), is the food.    For those not familiar with the book -  The Hungry Caterpillar is all about food!  He eats is way through many different foods, until he's big and strong and becomes a beautiful butterfly.  A perfect metaphor for a young baby.  It's amazing how much such a little guy can eat - but
