Tiff's Treats

Tiff's Treats is an amazing company that does amazing things in Texas. My mama called in an order for cookies and they delivered it right to my dorm. It was so sweet, the cookies were warm and there was milk! It was such a surprise, but a really nice one, and it brightened my day! Check it out & I would highly suggest sending something like this to your kid in college parents!

The Best Things Come In Small Packages

Who was it that said that the best things come in small packages? Because that person was incredibly bright. My mama was in Chicago last week and she and I were joking about what I needed from Chicago. My suggestions were a large pizza from UNO and Fannie May chocolate. 
The story behind my love affair with Fannie May is that my Mimi {grandma} used to take me to the Fannie May store in Fort Myers every December and we would make a big box of chocolates for the family for Christmas. It was so much fun and she would always get me some chocolate while we were there. During Christmas time my favorite flavor is Eggnog, but overall I love the Trinidads. They are delicious! 
So my mama surprised me with a small box of my favorites in the mail. I was so happy when I got them, and they taste just like I remember.
Sadly, most of the Fannie May stores have closed, but there are still some in Chicago. Have you ever had them?

College Food {1}

I'm starting a new series! Yay for that! 
This will be all about those little microwavable meals we are forced to buy in college. I will be reviewing one at a time with things like how it tastes and if it worth how much it costs, so make sure to keep checking back! 
I will be completely honest when I say I had never had General Tso's Chicken before I ate this Tai Pei version, so I might be completely incorrect in my opinions about how it tastes. I was in the mood for Chinese food, my favorite is Kung Pao but they did not have that, and Tso's said spicy so I bought it...and I was pleasantly surprised. Yes it is a little sweet, but the aftertaste is quite spicy. The rice looks like it was frozen and then cooked in a microwave but it tastes good and the vegetables were fresh {both in looks and taste}. The chicken might have been the weakest component just because there was not enough and the breading was a little soggy after the 10 minute microwave time {my dorm microwave is terrible}. PRO TIP: Put this on a plate when you microwave it, I know it says to do it in the container, but it is not conducive to cooking all the way through in that container, lay it out and it cooks much faster!
