Cheesecake.com Review: The Best Cheesecake Ever!

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!
My family and good friends know I’m not much of a cake person. I rarely liked sweets up until I had my girls. So as I got older each year on my birthday I was presented with a cheesecake - the only kind of “cake” I really like.

I’ve enjoyed many a cheese cake at Restaurants, from grocery stores, and home made for parties I have had catered. So, when I had the chance to try the official Cheesecake Sampler from Cheesecake.com, I knew I would like it. What I didn’t know was how much I would LOVE it.
I can honestly say you haven’t had cheesecake until you have had THIS cheesecake. The cheesecake is delivered right to your door in a huge box with “stuff” to keep it cold. When my hubby came home from work Friday night and saw it in the fridge he immediately asked who it was for. I replied, “Us. For tomorrow, our anniversary”. Well, morning came and he wanted it - for breakfast. Rather than argue and do the dishes from the night before just to make a nice breakfast I gave in and we had the cheesecake with our morning coffee. Oh, what a breakfast it was! J We followed suit the next three mornings with the same breakfast. J It tasted SO good with coffee! I wish I had a nice dessert wine because my instincts are it would have gone great with that too.

If you have ever had cheesecake and it seems “dry” - this is nothing like that. Moist, not too firm and not too mushy - it really was the best I have ever had. And the crust was the same way. So tasty!

My hubby doesn’t always get to share his opinion on the products I review, but on this one he asked I put in his thoughts. Before I say though - know that my hubby is a very picky eater and when he does find food he likes he thoroughly enjoys it! So, this is what he had to say:

“The crust was riveting. It tasted like what you would smell when you walk into a caramel corn shop. It was THAT good. And the cheesecake itself was amazing - every bite was an experience. Eating the cheesecake was like those commercials where someone takes a bite of something and is transported to another place.” I guess he liked it. J

If you would like to check out cheesecake.com to see all of the goodies they have to offer - click here. I do have a promo code for anyone that would like to order and experience this delightful dessert:
For the rest of February use code SAVE15 to save 15% on your order.
For the month of March you can save 10% by using code OPADDY at checkout.

If I see any deals on these I will pass them along!

Buitoni Riserva Review & Giveaway

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!
Did I ever mention that I am 50% Italiano?? I LOVE LOVE LOVE Italian Food. Mmmm MMM! One more time - I LOVE Italian Food! And guess what? My husband hates it! (Some days I wonder about him - who can NOT love Italian Food?) But I digress…

As I said, I love Italian food so when I get the opportunity to eat it - I always am so excited to do so. And last week, I was given the chance to try Buitoni’s Refrigerated Ravioli. You may have seen Buitoni in your frozen foods section, but did you know they have refrigerated products as well? Pasta, Linguine, Sauces and Ravioli! Buitoni believes in using simple, high quality ingredients to create extraordinary meals. There are over 40 varieties of all-natural pasta and sauces. You can check out all Buitoni has to offer here.



I found Buitoni in the deli section at Price Chopper, and opted for the 3 Cheese Ravioli (Asiago, Romano and Ricotta) and paired it will a Red Sauce and a Leafy Green Salad. (I know - you are SO hungry right now aren’t you?) I won’t tell you how my family liked it - because I made it when they weren’t home because I didn’t want to share!



Buitoni makes a great Ravioli (or Raviols as my grandparents call them) - not too pasta tasting (if you eat a lot of pasta you will know what I mean) and just the right amount of filling. So filling that as much as I wanted a second helping, my first did me in! Now, I will say I wish I had used the recipe ideas that Buitoni had above - I think I may have enjoyed that even more than my plain jane meal. But either way - it was Good!

And by now your mouth should be watering so I will tell you that one MyCNYMommy reader will win one Package of Refrigerated Buitoni, a Cooler Tote Bag (it is really awesome!) and a Buitoni Wall Calendar!

Here are the giveaway details:

* Giveaway will end 3/6, 11:59 PM

Jimmy Deans National Hot Breakfast Month Review & Giveaway

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!

As most of you know, I have been working on losing a few pounds this year, and so far have lost 11 pounds which I am totally excited about! Pretty much every day my breakfast has consisted of eggs with things mixed in, so when I was given the chance to try Jimmy Deans D-Lights Breakfast Bowls I jumped at the chance!


The newest Breakfast Bowl - The Ham Bowl fits exactly in with what I want for breakfast - a high protein start to my day: Egg Whites, Ham, Cheese and for fun - potatoes.

I can’t even begin to tell you how yummy or filling this was! So, so soooo good. Really. And filling - the Ham, Cheese and Potato Breakfast Bowl has 21g of Protein (but less than 250 calories)! I was actually so full after eating this that I went to my MOPS meeting after and couldn’t indulge on any of the yummy sweets they had to offer. I wasn’t overfull, just pleasantly full enough to not want the sweets! Sweet! J

Now, one of my daughters LOVES eggs and she had a few bites (I didn’t want to share!), but Jimmy Deans also now makes a line of Breakfast foods for kids! My kids tried the French Toast Sticks (and by kids I mean my hubby too!) and they were also a hit with hubby, Matthew and Mary! For a quick breakfast option these are great - 80 seconds in the microwave and you have two French Toast Sticks and sausage links to enjoy! Perfect for breakfast on the go.

Think you will love these breakfast goodies from Jimmy Deans? How about I give away 1 FREE Product Coupon to 3 Lucky MyCNYMommy readers?! Yeah, I thought so!

Here are the giveaway details:
Giveaway will end 3/6, 11:59PM
Giveaway is open to U.S. Residents, age 18+
