One of the most frequent question I get is: "As someone whose job is basically trying new foods, how are you not 300 pounds?" Truth is being a food writer has actually made me more disciplined about what I put in my body. Because of what I like to think of as my Type A "finance" personality, I was already very careful about working out and eating properly to maintain good health even before I started writing. Therefore, having the opportunity to test so many yummy (and not so yummy) products has made me even more aware about what actually taste good - and if I don't like it, I won't finish it.

Enstrom's World Famous Almond ToffeeEnstrom’s World Famous Almond Toffee is a hand-crafted confection that, once tasted, is never forgotten. From its humble beginnings in a small-town Colorado candymaker's kitchen, Enstrom's toffee has become a world-class, internationally known confection.
Peligroso TequilaI’m not a big drinker, but when I do, I drink the classy stuff (no plastic bottled nonsense for me – kthanks). So when making festive and aggressive margaritas, my new go to alchy mix in is Peligroso Tequila. This 84 proof premium liquor is made with only the good stuff – as in 100% Weber Blue agave harvested in the highlands of Jalisco aged in real oak whiskey barrels from Tennessee. Peligroso’s 42% alcohol content is higher than the norm of 40% - which makes their tequila that much more Peligroso rock n’roll!
