Recipe: Walkers Shortbread Ginger Citrus Parfait

March 20, 2014 By: Serena

Walkers-Shortbread-Parfait-2Heeeeey, Noshers!  Did you miss me?  I sure missed all of you!  I’m super excited to be able to start blogging a bit more regularly going forward, especially as the weather gets warmer and spring and summer food events kick off!  Today, I’m happy to pop in as a Walkers Shortbread Blogger Ambassador and share both a super simple, decadent recipe AND a discount code so you can try the recipe out for yourself!

As an Ambassador, I receive classic as well as new Walkers products to sample.  And as an Ambassador, I am able to provide all of you (!) with promo codes each month that allow you free or discounted product!  Here are the details for this month’s code:

  • Code is BASPRING2014 for 20% off your entire purchase :)
  • Valid: Mar 20 – Mar 27 (next Thursday!)

This month, I received the following samples in the Walkers Shortbread line-up:

  • Walkers Shortbread Rounds
  • Stem Ginger Biscuits
  • Mini Scottie Dog Shortbread
  • Scottie Dog Shortbread
  • Assorted Animal Shapes

The theme this month is “Recipes to Spring into the New Season”, and since today is the first day of Spring, I wanted to put together a light, refreshing parfait that would be easy on the ingredients and effort!  I used the Stem Ginger biscuits, honey, Greek yogurt, and a tangerine (though any citrus of your choice would probably be delish!)

Walkers Shortbread Ginger Citrus Parfait


  • 3 Walkers Shortbread Stem Ginger Biscuits
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tangerine or citrus fruit of your choice, peeled and sectioned
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 clear container

1. In a plastic bag, crush the Stem Ginger Biscuits until you have rough crumbs.  Spread a layer of crumbs on the bottom of the container

2. Layer on a third of the Greek yogurt, tangerine pieces, and drizzle with honey

3. Repeat the above layering order until you reach the top of the container, and garnish with remaining citrus pieces.

4. Enjoy!

These Walkers Shortbread ginger citrus parfaits make for a tangy wake-me-up on a lazy weekend morning and are sooo easy.  Give it a try and let me know what you think!

And since these biscuits were SO cute, I had to just post a pic – I’ll be breaking into these next:

Recipe: Lobster Boil with Imperial Spanish Chorizo

March 03, 2014 By: Serena


Happy Tuesday, Noshers!  I know I’ve been a little MIA lately, but hopefully I will be updating more in the very near future!  Today, I had to pop in to share a pretty AMAZING lobster boil I put together last week – excuse me while I pat myself on the back.  When I saw and tasted the finished result, I knew I had to let all of you know about it – because it’s about the easiest thing in the world to make.  You should totally do this and take credit for it – your secret is safe with me ;).

The impetus for this dish was my longing for summer weather (summer where are you??) and a shipment of Imperial Spanish Chorizo - I was lucky enough to get 2 links of traditional Spanish chorizo and one link of spicy – yum!  I devoured the spicy link with crackers and it was soooo good – my sentiments were shared by an eating buddy who is a self-described “chorizo afficionado.”  I thought chorizo would be an awesome addition to a lobster bake, so last Wednesday, I made it happen.  And it was good.

But in the vernacular of my favorite PBS show, don’t take my word for it – try it for yourself!  You won’t regret it.

Happy (Belated) Valentine’s Day!

Drive-By Post: Valentine’s Day PEEPS :)

February 10, 2014 By: Serena

It’s Valentine’s Day this Friday!  And you know what that means? It means I’ve been stuffing my face with these:


The peeps at PEEPS were kind enough to send some of their products created especially for Valentine’s Day.  Look at all that pink and red and white! And brown for chocolate, yum.  Some of my favorites included the dark chocolate covered raspberry flavored hearts, the chocolate dipped strawberry chicks, and the chocolate bears :)

Other Valentine’s PEEPS products include:

  • Cherries Drizzled and Dipped in Chocolate
  • Marshmallow Hearts  (or as I call them, big pink puffy hearts)
  • Chocolate (milk or dark) Covered Raspberry Flavored Hearts
  • Strawberry Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts
  • Vanilla Crème Flavored Marshmallow Hearts
  • Sugar-Free Marshmallow Hearts (my dad would especially appreciate these)

I’m also planning to share the love with my sister, who is an ever bigger PEEPS fan than I am.  I remember when I only knew PEEPS as an Easter basket treat – I’m glad that they are now available for multiple holidays. Drool.

Note: Products provided by PEEPS; the choice to post and ensuing opinions are my own.

Do you have Valentine’s Day plans?

Nosh Girl Party: Guilty Treat!

February 09, 2014 By: Serena

Happy weekend, Noshers.  My week(s) have been a little ridiculous in terms of busy-ness, sorry for the hiatus! :(  I hope to be able to update more regularly.  Today I’m stopping by to re-cap the NoshGirl Party we had a few weeks ago – the buzzfood for this party was guilty treat and it was so fun to see what all of you ate!  We had attendees from all different states and guests both young and seasoned :).  And since every weekend is full of guilty food treats for me, I participated a bunch.   Check out what everyone ate!

From ivester4o: “Not a super #guiltytreat but a treat nonetheless #noshgirlparty #greanteayums”


From marissamakes: “It’s our tradition to end the work week on a sweet note with cones from @whipndip.  My pick today: Chocolate Toffee Pretzel! #NoshGirlParty #guiltytreat #sogood”


A submission from my mom, who doesn’t have Instagram or twitter – “East meets West….steam char siu bao, Walkers Stem Ginger Biscuit, and Trader Joe’s Butter Almond Thins.”  I learned how to snack from the best! ;)


From melisahebe: “After school treat: PB & Banana!”


From lyreinlove: “CRONUTS. #anniversaryweekend late entry for the #noshgirlparty”


From cheezplease: “That awkward moment when you realize you got BBQ Pork Rinds instead of Original to go with your Fried Chinese Redbean Donut.  And…you’re happy about it. #NoshGirlParty #GuiltyAsFried #SaturdayBreakfastOfChampions”noshgirlparty-guiltytreat-9

From @OfficiallyErinD: “This weekend’s guilty pleasure: homemade funfetti and with chocolate silk frosting #NoshGirlParty”


And my guilty treats throughout that weekend:

Strawberry “cheese pie” from Junior’s.


Hazelnut and salted caramel gelato from GROM.  The scoop guy said whipped cream was free that day so of course I had to add it:


Bottle milk tea and toast with condensed milk/butter, from Cha Chan Tang:


Ginormous croissant with Nutella at Ten Degrees Bistro:


And froyo from Pinkberry!  Although it doesn’t look as guilt-inducing as my eating buddy’s selection :)

noshgirlparty-guiltytreat-10Thank you to all who attended this latest Nosh Girl Party – it was so fun to see your photos on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook!  Hope to see all of you (and more) and the next party! :)

What’s your favorite guilty treat?
