The Flour Pot moved and has new yummy items!

I love Flour Pot cookies. If you have never seen them or eaten them, you are definitely missing out. The Flour Pot is a cool little cookie boutique in Ambler where mom and daughter team Margie and Abby make all the cookies and other goodies by hand, decorate, and wrap beautifully. I use them as favors for parties and recommend them all the time!

Anyway, they just moved into a new location (which I have yet to check out, but I will be soon!) In addition to their amazing selection of cookies, they now have a larger selection of other items including cupcakes, double chocolate brownies, mint brownies, PB&J bars, and coconut macaroons. Yum!

I love that you can have birthday parties there or decorating parties in their cool kitchen, too. Check it out! Open Mon-Fri 10am-8pm, Sat 10-5pm.

The Cheesecake Factory FINALLY has a kids menu!

I am so excited to share the news that The Cheesecake Factory now has a children's menu for kids 10 and under after decades of not offering one for smaller diners. There are about 13 entree choices such as pastas, chicken strips, pizza, sliders, grilled chicken, mac and cheese and more that range from approximately $3.95 to $6.95. My kids loved the mini corn dogs the other night! Each entree comes with a choice of beverage as well. They also have desserts starting at $1.00 for a scoop of ice cream and $2.00 for strawberries with cream. My family frequents the location in Willow Grove and we always ordered the chicken fingers appetizer for the kids. We were thrilled to see they have their own children's menu now and with so many different choices all very reasonably priced!

Coupons Galore at Peace a Pizza Willow Grove

Jonah and I ate lunch at Peace a Pizza today in Willow Grove, and were offered a "new menu" by one of the guys behind the counter. At first, I refused, thinking the last thing I need is another take out menu to clutter up my kitchen. But then I was told that in addition to it being a new menu, there are a number of great coupons inside. So I took one (or two!).

Do yourself a favor and stop in and ask for a new menu. The coupons are great! The coupons include:
  • Free gourmet slice when you buy a large drink
  • Buy one slice, get one free
  • Free 14" pizza when you buy a 16" pizza
  • Free stromboli with purchase of 16" pizza
  • Free kids meal with purchase of gourmet slice
  • and more. Check out the online promotions page to print out some more coupons, too!
Also notable: the new menu includes some new items like chicken parm, buffalo chicken, mac and cheese, wings, and nuggets. I had the new "strawberry fields" salad which was awesome and exactly what I like in a salad: goat cheese, strawberries, candied walnuts, and a yummy poppyseed dressing.

Great Burger Now Open!

Great Burger located in the Upper Dublin Shopping Center is now open! It is next to DSW and their address is 3616 Welsh Road, Willow Grove (corner of Twining & Welsh Roads). Their phone number is 215-657-6100.

I just ate there today with a bunch of friends and we thought their hamburgers were quite small but they tasted okay. Someone had the chicken sandwich and thought it was good. The kids had hot dogs and seemed to enjoy them. I thought their fries were awesome!

Take a look at their menu. They offer free popcorn which the kids loved! I thought the prices were very reasonable but then again I thought the burger size could have been better!

It's worth checking out. Hours are Monday-Friday, 11:00 AM-8:00 PM and Sunday 12:00 PM-7:00 PM.

Have stuff to get rid of?!

I can't stand all of the kids stuff (toys, blankets, etc) taking up space in my house. So I am packing up a bunch of stuff and heading out to a new children's consignment boutique that opened up in Ambler!!!

It's called A Playful Planet, and they take all kinds of gently used items and give you 50% of the sale price! Take a look at their acceptable items list and how to get started. Of course, if you need something, this could be a good place to get nicer gently used items, too.

I'll let you know how it goes once I get my stuff together and head over there! Here's the info: Horsham Road Center, 1116 Horsham Road, Ambler. 215-583-3494.
