Honey Wafers

A new snack we recently tried at my house are the Original Honey Filled and Chocolate Filled Wafer Thins. I never had these before, but Bill recalls have these a young child. He actually might have. Bill grew up in this area and this company is based out of Crestwood, IL! What are Honey Wafers? They are two crispy light 8 inch wafer rounds that are hand-sandwiched together with a honey filling. I’ve been hoarding the chocolate ones to myself, because I like them so much.  However, I have let the kids and the hubby at the honey ones.  We even brought some of these to a family get together, and they were a huge hit.  Everyone wanted to know where we got them from!  I also like that they are 100% natural.  Honey Wafers have no preservatives, no saturated fat, no trans fats, and no cholesterol.  They are even certified kosher!  These make an excellent snack too, because they are only 90 calories!  My first thought when I took a bite was that it tastes like an ice cream cone.  When you get down to the filling part, that just makes it all the more better.  I actually found this snack pretty filling and something I could definitely give both of my kids to eat as a snack.

If you are looking for a healthy snack for you or your kids to try, Honey Wafers is definitely something you should check into.  Not only are they healthy, they taste great too!

Morton’s Seasoning

My husband loves spicy. The kids and I do not. It makes cooking at my house extremely interesting since I would like everybody to be happy.  Morton’s Seasoning Salt and Cajun Seasoning was a huge hit in my house.  We recently tried this seasoning on some wonderful thin sliced porterhouse steaks from our local grocery store.  The seasoning salt gave my steak an awesome flavor. I am not one for seasoning most things, so I was surprised how the seasoning brought out the flavor of my already awesome steak.  I shared my steak with the kids, and they also liked it.  My husband tried the Cajun Seasoning on his steak.  He liked the kick that his steak got from it.  When I make steaks, I hadn’t been seasoning them at all.  However, now that I have been turned onto the delicious flavors of Morton’s Seasonings, I am now going to be seasoning everything I grill out on my Foreman Grill (remember, I live in Chicago, and it is a tad cold to grill outside).  If you would like to try out these seasonings on your own, they can be bought at any one of the 80 Morton’s Steakhouse locations and their website.  I have to decide what to make for dinner tonight, and I think steak sounds good, don’t you?
