I love finding new products to try from local businesses here in the Bluegrass State. I can’t stress enough, but SHOP LOCAL. Something that you may not know about me is that I love to cook. However, if you follow me on instagram, then I know you know that I love to eat hahaha! I love to experiment in the kitchen and try new foods. Over the past couple of years, I have turned from a picky eater into a way more adventurous eater.
I’m a huge fan of pasta, so I figured that I would make shrimp scampi. Usually when I make pasta, I make cheese sauces, so by making this shrimp scampi, it was one of the first wine sauces that I have made. Since it uses wine in the sauce, it was the perfect opportunity to hit up Liquor Barn (the mecca of all things alcohol) and pick up a wine from one of the local wineries. Kentucky may be known for its bourbon, but it has plenty of wineries too! The wine I chose was Kentucky Lady from Old 502 Winery. Kentucky Lady is a white wine.
I just love the rustic look of reclaimed wood! When my husband and I buy a house, I even plan on incorporating the rustic look into the modern style that I want for our future house. This watch is perfect because it has that classic look that I love. You know, using something old and creating something completely new out of it?!
I own a few pieces of jewelry made from reclaimed bourbon barrels, so of course, I’ve been admiring these wood watches from JORD for quite some time, and was even thinking about getting one for myself. These are some unique watches that you just won’t see anywhere else. You never have to worry about these watches going out of style. Not only are the watches gorgeous, they come beautifully packaged and JORD offers both men’s watches and women’s watches. It’s seriously impressive. Just take a look…
It’s no surprise that here in Kentucky, we like our bourbon. After all, it’s something that Kentucky is known for – 95% of the world’s bourbon is made here. There are numerous distilleries all throughout Central Kentucky.
I’m sure everyone has heard of Maker’s Mark, but did you know that they have an Ambassador Program? This is a one-of-a-kind program that you will definitely want to be a part of. There are many perks, and it is free to sign up.
I’m sure everyone knows it by now, but my name is Whitney, and I’m ambassador #1724647. If you haven’t signed up yet as an ambassador, let me tell you what you are missing out on…
It’s that time of year, when we are invited to family affairs, Ugly Sweater parties, White Elephant/Dirty Santa shindigs, or maybe even a potluck at your place of employment. With parties, there comes food. I’ve been making these little treats for the past five years, and I’ve tried making all different varieties. These pretzel treats are super easy to make and also very delicious! This quick dessert allows you to customize them in any way you deem fit. You can use different types of kisses and m&ms, as well as different color m&ms.
I usually prefer my “7 Layer Bars” that I’ve been making since I was a child, but they are relatively expensive to make and sort of time-consuming. Plus, I don’t like to share those.
These pretzel treats are perfect for the person who is a last minute shopper or who doesn’t have a lot of time. These only take about five minutes to cook, and the rest of the time is spent in the refrigerator to allow the chocolate to harden. Plus, they are inexpensive to make, which is a huge win-win!
