French Press Make Your Coffee Great

x-Chef provided me with this french press in order to facilitate this review.  All opinions are my own. Hands down if you are brewing hot coffee the french press is not to be overlooked.  Some may view it as low technology, but there is a reason that the glass carafe is a favorite. The ease […]

Four Seasons of Staycation!

We recently had the pleasure of spending an afternoon in the Presidential Suite at the Four Seasons in Chicago. Let me tell you that opulence is the right word. We were there to participate in ChicagonistaLIVE while also enjoying high tea. High tea is quite the afternoon. You get to eat dainty pastries and snacks […]

Wild Coffee Ethiopian Sidamo

Recently we were asked if we wanted to try Wild Coffee’s Sidamo Medium roast coffee beans.  Being a huge fan of Ethiopian coffees in general I pretty much jumped at the chance.  As I’m sure you know, here at Rosie Discovers we’re pretty big coffee fans.  Our coffee tastes run the gamut from espresso shots […]

Life Without Rosie Dickens

Things haven’t been the same around here the past 2 months. If you follow us on social media you already know why. I’m actually crying as I write this….and I’m not ready to even write the whole story. Just this little note. The past 3 weeks tomorrow…every little thing makes me cry. I never know […]

Instinct Raw Boost For Your Carnivore

All of us cat owners know the pickiness.  The scrunched up kitty face that says ‘don’t you even think about it’.  The cat that won’t try that new food because it’s not the same.  However, there are some temptations that can lure your carnivore out from their grumpy place.  Seven chooses to lodge himself underneath […]

Avocado Soup with Baconfat

A friend of mine from high school, Aaron Wilder, is this amazing chef in Louisville and is always available when I have a question or idea. Like just today I texted him to ask if sweet potato cinnamon rolls sounded like a good idea, which is still up for debate. Although we all know I’m […]

Effortless HoneyBaked Easter!

There is one aspect of cooking that I believe all chefs regard as the best.  A dish that is simple yet tastes amazing.  Such is a HoneyBaked Ham.  The tastiest and yet easiest meal you can serve.  Working with HoneyBaked Ham makes celebrating special occasions easier.  Not to mention the fact that you can complete […]

Granite City Food and Brewery Schaumburg

Last week I had the chance to #GCSneakPeek a look at the newest location for Granite City Food and Brewery in Schaumburg.  While the area is already hugely populated with restaurants due to Woodfield Mall….Granite City is a great new addition.  It’s actually located back behind the mall, closer to the Zurich building which makes […]

Templeton Rye Whiskey Truffles

I was asked a while ago if I might be interested in creating a chocolate truffle recipe using Templeton Rye Whiskey and two mystery Frontier spices.  While I was a little apprehensive about the mystery ingredients, I was still game to give it a try as everything goes with chocolate!  My mystery ingredients weren’t too […]

Oatmeal Sugar Cookies – #fbcookieswap

It’s time for me to share our annual entry into the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap of 2014!!  This is my second year participating and let me say getting 3 dozen cookies in the mail at the beginning of december is something I’m starting to look forward to.  You might be wondering what the Great […]

Piehole Whiskey – Drink Your Pie!

The folks over at Piehole Whiskey sent us a care package last week to see if we’d be able to craft some shots or cocktails using two of eight unique ingredients.  While neither of us drinks a lot, Susie and I definitely appreciate a good drink.  Living in Chicago we get ample opportunity to try […]
