20% Off Walkers Shortbread! (And I’m an Ambassador!)

Walkers Shortbread minis – everything is better in mini form!

Happy Tuesday, Noshers! How was your weekend? I ended up having to work this weekend, but at least I was able to eat several delicious meals – so I guess net neutral??  Anyway, today I’m excited to share some exiting news with you – for the next six months I will be partnering with Walkers Shortbread to be a Blogger Ambassador!

If you’ve been following the BAN blog, you’ll know that I’ve partnered with Walkers Shortbread several times already (see the bottom of this post for links!), and I absolutely love their product.  So when I was asked to become an Ambassador, I was happy to put my support behind these shortbread cookies!  Did you know that Walkers Shortbread is the leading brand of food exported from Scotland? I didn’t know that either – but given my family-wide fanaticism of this brand, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Nosh family had something to do with this statistic, just sayin’.  The classic shortbread recipe (my personal fave) is made only from butter, flour, sugar and salt, with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.  This makes me feel a little better in indulging in a shortbread cookie or five.

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: Continue reading »

Italian/Brunch: Locanda Verde

January 15, 2014 By: Serena





Happy Wednesday, Noshers!  Today, I’m happy to share my experience brunching at Locanda Verde.  Brunch is my favorite meal, and lemon ricotta pancakes are my favorite pancake-type (what, don’t you have a favorite pancake-type too?).  So when I heard that Locanda Verde‘s lemon ricotta pancakes were out of this world, I had to try them for myself.

Locanda Verde isn’t located near me by any means, but I’m willing to travel for a good brunch.  BUT, if I’m making a trek, I’m definitely sampling more than one dish.  So, Continue reading »

Weekend Re-Cap

Happy Tuesday, Noshers!  Today I thought I’d kick off a weekend recap series – maybe it’s because I had a bunch of delicious meals this weekend (if next weekend is particularly uneventful, this series will be short-lived indeed).

Anyhoo, while I take my big dSLR camera out regularly, I have my phone camera on me all the time.  So most of these photos will be captured super-casual, in-the-moment snaps.  Most of this past weekend’s photos were taken with an iPhone 5S I’ve been demo-ing for the past few weeks, courtesy of Verizon Wireless 4G LTE.  I’m still deciding which phone I should get when  I’m up for an upgrade (in 14 days….not that I’m counting or anything), so demo-ing different phones has certainly been helpful :).

Some highlights from this weekend include: Continue reading »
