I’m Running on Dunkin’ Donuts This Holiday Season!

(I received a gift card to faciliate my review for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

I don’t know about you, but I am officially in holiday mode right now! It has been a busy few weeks planning and preparing for Christmas and finishing up some last-minute work projects for 2017. I think that it is safe to say I am running on Dunkin’ Donuts! I have stopped by Dunkin’ Donuts several times these last few weeks to fuel up on my favorite holiday-flavored coffees and lattes!

I love the new holiday-themed flavors this year! Peppermint Mocha, my personal fave, combines cool peppermint and rich chocolate flavors. The Brown Sugar Cinnamon, brings together the sweet taste of brown sugar and the flavor of cinnamon. Both flavors are available in Dunkin’ Donuts’ hot or iced coffees, lattes, macchiatos and Frozen Dunkin’ Coffee. In addition, Dunkin’ has brought back their festive holiday cups. This year, they feature a festive design and the simple word, “Joy” to convey the happiness and spirit of the season. This year’s design incorporates seasonal graphic icons like snowflakes, peppermints, holly leaves and holiday trees to stir up the warm, nostalgic feelings associated with this special time of year.

If you are a Dunkin’ Donuts doughnut lover, they have something for you as well! A holiday trio of seasonal donuts, highlights Dunkin’s merry menu. The new Frosted Sugar Cookie Donut is a frosted donut with cookie dough flavored filling and topped with crumbled frosted sugar cookies, while the new Gingerbread Cookie Donut features a caramel frosted donut sprinkled with ginger snap cookie topping. Dunkin’ Donuts also has the Snowflake Sprinkle Donut, a frosted donut with red icing and special snowflake sprinkles, and Snowflake Sprinkle MUNCHKINS, featuring the brand’s chocolate glazed MUNCHKINS donut hole treats rolled in snowflake sprinkles.

Be sure to stop by your local Dunkin’ Donuts while you are out with friends and family this holiday season and fuel up on these delicious treats!

My boys and I headed over to our local Dunkin’ Donuts this past weekend to check out some of these cute offerings!

I love this fun fact….when Dunkin’ Donuts was developing the Halloween donuts in the Dunkin’ Test Kitchen, they wanted to incorporate as many classic Halloween colors and themes as possible. So they decided on the deep orange, purple and chocolate colors! I love this idea and think that they items are definitely  eye-catching!

Visit Russo’s New York Pizzeria Clearwater + My Review!

Disclosure: I was provided with a gift card to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

Russo’s New York Pizzeria is famous for its authentic New York-style pizza, featuring fresh-made dough and the Russo’s family pizza sauce recipe since 1978. The restaurant also offers pizza by the slice, a colossal 28-inch Party Pizza, which is large enough to feed groups of up to 20, as well as gluten-free pizza and pasta, and traditional Italian favorites like lasagna, Ravioli Pomodoro, Penne Alla Vodka and Fettuccini Alfredo, plus desserts like authentic house-made tiramisu. Thankfully, we now have a location here in Clearwater! My family and I recently had the opportunity to review some of the delicious offerings at Russo’s and I am excited to share my review with you!

From the moment that we walked into the door at Russo’s to the time that we left, the staff were all so courteous, helpful and friendly. My son Brady was able to play with pizza dough while we waited on our pies to cook and he had a blast. In fact, he has now requested to play with pizza dough at home! The meal started with a delicious foccacia bread and dipping sauce that my guys thoroughly enjoyed! Then, on to the main course of mouth-watering pizzas!

Since I try to eat gluten-free, it is sometimes challenging to find a pizza that is not only delicious but has a nice texture to it as well. I had the gluten free Margherita Pizza at Russo’s and was blown away! This pizza is the best gluten-free pizza that I have ever eaten. The marriage of Roma tomatoes, fresh basil, all-natural mozzarella, garlic, and organic extra virgin olive oil come together for one delicious pizza! Oh and the crust. Let me tell you about the buttery and crispy crust. It was amazing! The secret to their crust? They use honey as a binding ingredient, with rice flour as a substitute, but without compromising on flavor and substance. I seriously could not even tell that it was gluten free! Every bite of this pizza just melted in my mouth. I am dreaming about this pizza and cannot wait to go back again just for this!

While I enjoyed my gluten-free Margherita Pizza, my guys devoured the Italian Works. This pie is made up of sliced Italian sausage, pepperoni, roasted peppers, all-natural mozzarella cheese, along with Russo’s homemade pizza sauce. They said that the pizza was amazing! Just look at that cheese and sausage! How can you go wrong with all of that yummy goodness?

Russo’s also serves calzones, pastas, soups, sandwiches and more. I cannot wait to try the gluten-free pasta dishes! Are you a pizza lover? I highly recommend Russo’s to anyone and think that you will enjoy their delicious offerings! If you stop in, be sure to tell them that Heather from My Sweet Savings sent you!

Russo’s New York Pizzeria Clearwater is located at 2233 Gulf to Bay Blvd. Follow Russo’s Clearwater on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to stay up-to-date with all of their latest promotional offers and events.

Tijuana Flats: Limited Time Turkey Chorizo Offerings + Giveaway!

Disclosure: As part of the Tampa Bay Bloggers, I was given the opportunity for a blogger tasting at Tijuana Flats. I am also being provided with a gift card for sharing my honest opinion. 

I absolutely love Mexican food and could seriously eat it every day! With that being said, one of my go-to favorites when dining out is definitely Tijuana Flats. I love how everything is so fresh and they can customize most anything on their menu to your liking which is also a huge plus to me! Every Tijuana Flats meal is MADE TO ORDER with the freshest ingredients that are prepped the same day you enjoy them.

For a limited time, Tijuana Flats is offering their Turkey Chorizo as an option in any of their entrees. If you have not tried the Turkey Chorizo, you are totally missing out! This is ground turkey mixed with chorizo and it makes for one tasty entree! The flavor is out of this world!

One of the turkey chorizo items that you must try is the Hangover Burrito. I had the opportunity this week to head over to my local Tijuana Flats in Clearwater, Fl where manager Josh hooked me up with this deliciousness! The Hangover Burrito is a HUGE tortilla (choose between flour or wheat) that is filled with Turkey Chorizo, fried egg, jalapenos, cheese and potatoes. It is a party in your mouth! The flavor is unlike anything you have ever had and it will keep you wanting to go back for more! This is only available for a limited time though so head on over to your local Tijuana Flats today to give it a try!

Manager Josh was so gracious to me and he made sure that I didn’t leave hungry! Before the Hangover burrito was served, he brought the Tijuana Trio to the table. If you are not familiar with this it is chips with salsa, queso, and guacamole. I have to tell you the Turkey Chorizo Queso is Out. Of. This World! I could literally sit and eat this all day! The Turkey Chorizo mixed with the melted cheese is like liquid gold in your mouth! We tried the regular beef queso as well, but my favorite was by far the turkey chorizo queso. The seasonings are amazing!

Not only did we try the Hangover Burrito and Tijuana Flats Trio, but Josh also let us try the Turkey Chorizo Tostados and the Blackened Chicken Norrito Bowl.

The Turkey Chorizo Tostados were a big hit with my 5 year old son Brady! These are lightly fried corn tortillas, refried beans, melted cheese, choice of filling, toppings, guacamole & choice of ranch, salsa, avocado ranch or Southwest citrus vinaigrette. Try it, you will love it!

The Norrito Bowl is my go-to item when I visit Tijuana Flats. I love that it is all the goodness of a burrito but in a bowl; hence the title, Norrito Bowl. No + Burrito = Norrito. Light salsa-based rice, black beans, cheese, toppings, guacamole. Served in a bowl with choice of filling.

No meal is complete without dessert, right? Josh brought us the Cookie Dough Flautas to enjoy. These are definitely drool-worthy! If you love cookie dough, this is your dessert! The Cookie Dough Flauta is Chocolate chip cookie dough loaded into a flour tortilla, lightly fried & topped with powdered sugar. Served with a side of chocolate syrup. How can you go wrong with that deliciousness?

Thank you so much to Josh and his crew at the Clearwater, FL location for their wonderful hospitality to me, my mom and son Brady. We had such a great time and the food was all amazing. We even brought so much food home! I can’t wait to go back and have more delicious and fresh Tex-Mex!

I also wanted to mention that if you are out and about this Saturday and Sunday February 18th & 19th, Tijuana Flats is offering $5 Turkey Entrées! Choose any turkey entree with their delicious Turkey Chorizo as a filling for only $5! This includes the yummy Hangover Burrito! You can’t beat $5 bucks!

Tijuana Flats: A Delicious Review & Limited Time Turkey Options!

Disclaimer: As part of the Tampa Bay Bloggers, I received my meal and a gift card in exchange for my honest review. 

Anyone in the mood for Mexican? My son Drew and I are the Mexican lovers in our house, so when we had the opportunity to visit out local Tijuana Flats in Clearwater, FL on Monday for a menu tasting we were super excited! Thank you to the staff for their hospitality and kindness – Everything was beyond exceptional and we had such a Great evening!

Tijuana Flats is known for their Tijuana Tuesdaze which gets you 2 Beef or Chicken Tacos, Chips and a Drink for only $5.49! But, for a Limited Time, they have added Ground Turkey to their menu lineup as part of their #GiveYouTheBird promotion. I am a huge fan of turkey and cook with it several times a week in my own family’s menu, so I knew that the already delicious menu offerings from Tijuana Flats would not disappoint!

We started the evening with one of my faves – The Tijuana Flats famous Trio. I absolutely LOVE the Chips, Salsa, Guacamole and Queso and could literally sit and eat this all night long!

We started our sampling of the #GiveYouTheBird Turkey offerings with the Turkey Tostadas. These are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! The Lightly fried corn tortillas, refried beans, melted cheese and turkey filling are a perfect compliment to the salsa and other toppings. Honestly, you would never know that turkey was the meat in the filling. It is that delicious!

Next, we tried the Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos. My son Drew is not typically a fish eater, but he loved these! Each bite is filled with Well-Seasoned Mahi Mahi, Shredded Cabbage, Pico de gallo and a mouth-watering Southwest citrus vinaigrette. I am a huge Fish Taco fan and really enjoyed these. The vinaigrette gives the fish an extra special flare and brightness with each bite.

As we continued our food sampling, we came to the Chicken Flautas. These were hands-down the favorite of the night for both Drew and I! Lightly Fried Flour or Wheat Tortillas are filled with Blackened Chicken and Cheese and served with Queso, Guacamole and Toppings. These can also be ordered with Beef, Steak or Beans. And, for a limited time, you can get the turkey option in these. They are SO yummy and addictive that you will not be able to eat just one. Trust me!

Next came the Norrito Bowl. This is an item that I would definitely get again and again. What is a Norrito? No + Burrito = Norrito. All of the delicious fillings of a burrito but in a bowl! Salsa-Based Rice, Black Beans, Cheese, Toppings and Guacamole with your choice of filling make this the perfect Meal for any time! I love that you can add Steak, Chicken or Beef to your bowl to really customize it for your liking. I love that we can get the Turkey option right now too!

No meal would be complete without dessert, right? Well, the Desserts at Tijuana Flats definitely do not disappoint! We ended our Fun evening with the Cookie Dough Flautas. We love anything cookie dough in our house so Drew and I were a little giddy when we saw what the dessert was! The Cookie Dough Flauta is unlike anything you have ever eaten. Every bite is filled with Cookie Dough goodness filled in a lightly fried flour tortilla and topped with powdered sugar. If that wasn’t sweet enough, you get a side of Chocolate Syrup to dip the Cookie Dough Flauta in. Ummm….Yes please!

Are you ready to try some of these mouth-watering items for yourself? Don’t forget to ask for the Turkey option as your meat choice through the end of February. You will love it! This Valentine’s Day, Tijuana Flats is offering $2 Tacos and $1 Drafts.
