#DArtagnanFeast Giveaway

by Tiffany in Tidbits

So what makes a feast? Good food and lots of of it? Yep. I also classify I feast as a roundup of foods we don’t get the pleasure of eating too often. This is the only time of year when I eat turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, etc. It just makes it special because we don’t eat these foods all year round.

I recently added some new items to feast on via D’Artagnan Foods. They were kind enough to send me a bunch of goodies and we feasted before Thanksgiving and after.


We feasted on mousse truffee, pate, sausage, duck leg confit, prosciutto, and black truffle butter. I have had some of these foods before but they are rare treats. All were delish!

We ate the mousse, pate, and sausage on crackers as appetizers during a holiday get together. The prosciutto was eaten in a salad. The duck leg confit was used to make duck pot pie. The black truffle butter was the inspiration for a couple different steak and baked potato dinners. I love truffle butter on potatoes and a good ribeye.


The folks at D’Artagnan Foods are big into farm to table, as am I. They partner only with small farms and ranches that have strict standards and never use antibiotics or hormones. I will happily order from them in the future.

Mary’s Secret Ingredients Subscription Boxes

by Tiffany in Tidbits


As I have mentioned..dozens of times before, I love subscription boxes. I don’t have to many coming to me anymore because it can get wasteful if I don’t watch it. I think I might just have one subscription box right now, for makeup.

A new one to me of late though is Mary’s Secret Ingredient box service and the theme is cooking. Yay! We all cook right? Having a subscription box that provides a theme to inspire your cooking is a great concept.

The photo above is the box I received from them recently. It was a goodbye summer, hello fall box. I think they nailed the theme. It had some pepper jellies (which for this Southwestern native is like coming home) that reminded me of the last goodness of summer. The Italian salt will be perfect for making savory dishes and soups that colder weather makes us long for, and the flour is perfect for all the baking that goes on in the fall. All the products were new-to-me and high quality.

There are four boxes annually and not only do they give your cooking an inspirational kickstart with each new season, there is also a charitable aspect as well. In addition to promoting healthy eating, MARY’s secret ingredients is on a mission to eradicate hunger and is a proud supporter of Feed The Children, the global initiative dedicated to providing aid to children and fighting the hunger epidemic.

If you frequently feel a cooking slump coming on then this subscription box might be fun for you and don’t we all love to support a good company with a great mission? Yes we do.

Outlander Fan Gifts

by Tiffany in Tidbits

outlander fan gifts

Do you have someone in your life that loves the Outlander book series? Do they love the Outlander TV show from Starz? Do they obsess about Jamie and Claire? Well, you are in the right place. This is your hub for the perfect gifts for the upcoming holidays and for birthdays.

I am a HUGE Outlander fan. I read the book series when I was a teen and for years the idea was tossed about that they would make it into a movie. But if you have read the books then you know why this idea thrilled and simultaneously terrified fans. The books are just too deep for any two or even three hour movie to do justice. Well, the fans got their dream scenario when the Starz movie channel decided to do it as a series. The whole first season was dedicated to book one…12 hours to dedicate to the delicious story of Scottish Outlander Jamie and time traveling Claire. It’s romance, it’s sci-fi, it’s an exploration of history. It is AMAZING. The actors they picked to play the main characters are superb. It is the perfect adaptation if I do say so myself. Right now I don’t have cable and I don’t watch much TV but this is one show I will NOT be missing. This is quality stuff and if you are going to spend any time in front of a screen then this is a good choice.

The Outlander fan in YOUR life would love to get any of these great gifts…as would I. And let’s face it they probably already have the books and the DVD sets.

The Official Outlander Coloring Book – Coloring for adults is all the rage right now and what better way to pass the time while waiting on the next season than to color. They say coloring is a great stress reliever too!

Outlander 2016 Wall Calendar – Most of us like to have a wall calendar and this one is lovely. Only thing I don’t like is a month in which I have to look at Captain Blackjack Randall.

Outlander: Mini Mortar & Pestle Set – Homesteader here and a mortar and pestle is always handy for crushing dried herbs, flowers, spices, etc. 

Outlander Soundtrack Collection – The scottish music on the show is hypnotic and beautiful. Not to be missed!

Dragonfly Sassenach Necklace – with an amber colored gem. Love it!

Outlander Wall Quote – How fun! This outlander quote can go right on your wall and become part of the decor.
