What's a Donnoli? It's a donut filled with cannoli filling. I saw this advertised on our local news a few weeks ago. It was made by the bakers in a Shop-Rite store north of here. I told HWNSNBP to be on the look-out for them coming to our local Shop-Rite and last week he spotted them. Of course they had doubled the price from what the news report said they were originally sold for - I guess the publicity they got made them so wanted they could ask their price.
Although the news anchors oohed and aahed I was not a fan. I think it might have been better closer to room temperature instead of right out of the refrigerator.
The Bit-o-Blarney popcorn pictured below was a hit at work. I found this recipe on Happier Than A Pig in Mud (click link for recipe).
As the blog owner says, it's kind of like lime flavored Cracker Jacks. I left the bag in the faculty room and it didn't take long to empty. I only had sugar-free lime jello which tasted okay but was not as liquidy as it probably should have been for coating the popcorn.
This is not your ordinary Yellow Delicious apple. I don't particularly care for them. But I was willing to give this yellow gem a try. It's called an Opal Apple and it was very tasty. Not mealy like I find Delicious apples to be. We found these apples at the Fresh Market. I've been eyeing a Lemon Risotto Cake in their prepared salad section. It's not a bakery item, more on the line of a crab cake or hush puppy. Maybe this weekend?
Do you like to try new varieties of things? I find that I'm usually willing to give things a try in the sweet or salty category, but not so much with savories unless recommended by trusted family or friends. Of course when Rachel was home a couple of weekends ago and found the new Ben and Jerry's Core ice creams at Target you know I had to try them. Well, 3 out of 4 of them. And the Salted Caramel was first and foremost my favorite.
