Taste Test: Popchips

I think I was punked. Friends told me they loved these new snacks, which are healthier than potato chips. Too good to be true? Did I somehow buy two bags that were bad? These tasted similar to rice cakes, except I prefer rice cakes.

Lobster Ravioli for Valentine's Day Dinner

Sun-dried tomato pasta with a lobster filling. Tasted O-K, but I couldn't detect any lobster. I really need to learn how to make home-made ravioli.

How Did I Miss This Super Bowl Food?

I didn't even really "see" this until I looked at the food photos. I would have eaten one. Can I get a do-over?

Taste Test: Apple Tea

The third of three tea "taste tests" today. Apple tea my mother brought me from a recent trip to Turkey. She says everyone drinks it. Of course, I expected it to taste know, apples. No apple flavor at all. I can't even describe the flavor. Peppery? Not my favorite of the day.

Taste Test: Ooo-long Tea with Plum

Tasting three teas today. The second is Ooo-long with plum. Cute packaging. This is a stronger tea than the first oolong I tasted. The plum is more of a finish and adds a juicy bite to the tea. Very good.

Taste Test: Revolution Dragon Eye Oolong

I'm taste-testing 3 teas today. First, Revolution Dragon Eye Oolong, which my friend so graciously gave to me. She says this is the tea served at P.F. Chang's. It has a fruity aroma and finish. It's a very light, easy-drinking tea with a low caffeine content. Lovely. Although, my friend says it isn't easy to find. She had to order it.
