review : pure leaf iced tea

Hello everyone

Today I'm reviewing the newest flavours of pure leaf tea I am a big fan of pure leaf iced tea so a while ago when pure leaf tea's facebook page had a post letting there fans know two new flavours were coming to Canada peach and green tea and honey. The fans were asked which we were most excited to try so I commented and they said for me to message them after I did they said they wanted to send me some tea and asked for my address so I thought cool they are sending me some coupons maybe even free product coupons.Today I received a package by UPS well I wondered who is sending me a package I never signed up for anything that I remember until I seen pure leaf on the box when I opened it there was two bottles of both flavours and a free product coupon for any bottle of pure leaf tea. I was ecstatic since I was only expecting coupons. so even though I was not told to do a review I thought I would do one so I can tell you about these great flavours.

The first one I tried was the pure leaf peach flavour I love peaches especially anything that is peach flavoured so i was very excited to try this flavour the most. The flavour of tea and peach is so perfect the peach tastes so real you could swear they just picked the peaches its very refreshing and a great iced tea .

The second flavour is the green tea and honey i do like green tea and was unsure of the honey in a iced tea but it was quite good i myself am not a big fan of it. I thought there seamed to be too much honey then green tea but it is still very refreshing and the flavours do taste good hubby really did like it so I gave him the bottle.

My favourite out of both has to be the peach hey what can I say I love peach flavours both the peach and green tea and honey will be available in 547ml and 1.75L sizes both iced teas have no preservatives and no added colour and is real brewed which is what I love about pure leaf .the retail value is $2.49 for the 547ml & $3.99 for the 1.75 L but prices store to store may vary. 

It wont be in stores for sometime but it is a must try its very delicious 
hope you all enjoyed my review until next time everyone.

recipe Wednesday : pizza rolls

Homemade Pizza Rolls

hello everyone

this weeks recipe comes from Tracy's culinary adventures  I love pizza snacks but they can be quite costly to buy i have always wanted to make my own and these just look so yummy. 

Homemade Pizza Rolls


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons tomato paste
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes, drained well (juice reserved) and chopped fine
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups (8 oz) shredded 6-cheese Italian blend
3 tablespoons minced fresh basil
5-6 dozen wonton wraps
vegetable oil for frying


Add the oil to a 12-inch nonstick skillet and set over medium heat. When the oil shimmers, add the tomato paste. Cook, stirring continuously, for about 3 minutes, or until the mixture is a deep rust color. Add the garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes to the pan. Cook for about 30 seconds, or just until fragrant. Mix in the chopped tomatoes and the reserved juice. Allow the mixture to come to a simmer, then continue cooking until it has thickened and reduced to a thick paste. This will take about 10 minutes, and when it’s done, you should have about 1 cup. Transfer to a heatproof bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 days.

Meanwhile, line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a fine mesh sieve, dust about half of the cornstarch onto the parchment.

Add the cheese and the basil to the chilled tomato mixture and stir to combine. Season the mixture to taste with salt and pepper. To assemble: Place the wonton wraps on a plate and cover with a damp towel (this will prevent them from drying out). Fill a small bowl with water and set on your work surface. Working with a few wrappers at a time, lay them on your work surface. Add 1 teaspoon of filling to the center of each wrapper. Dip your finger in the water, and moisten the edges of one of the wrappers. Fold the bottom of the wrapper up and over the filling, then continue to roll toward the opposite edge. When you finish, the seam should be on the bottom. Gently press your fingers on either side of the filling to work out any air, then press the edges to seal completely. This is optional but the sides will be a bit long, so feel free to trim them down (I did). Transfer to the prepared baking sheet (seam side down). Repeat the sealing process with the other wrappers then continue to fill and seal using the remaining filling and wrappers. (Note: place additional sheets of parchment dusted with the remaining cornstarch between layers of pizza rolls on the baking sheet.)

Once you’ve assembled all of the rolls, cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap and transfer to the freezer for at least 30-60 minutes (until they are firm) or up to 1 month.

Meanwhile, set a wire rack inside a rimmed baking sheet. Top the rack with a layer of paper towels. Add enough vegetable oil to a pot to measure about 1 1/2 inches deep – you can do this in a large Dutch oven or a smaller pot but just be aware that you should fry fewer rolls at a time in the smaller pot so as not to overcrowd and drop the oil temperature too much. Set the pot over medium to medium-high heat and heat the oil until it measures 375 F on a candy thermometer. Add the pizza rolls (how many depends on how big a pot you used) and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring and flipping them over a few times so both sides brown evenly. Try to maintain the oil temperature between 350 and 375 F – adjust the heat under the pot as necessary. Use a spider strainer to transfer the pizza to the wire rack you prepared earlier to allow any excess oil to drain. Return the oil to 375 F before frying the next batch of rolls. Continue until they’ve all been fried.

The rolls will be very hot when they come out of the oil so let them cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve as is or with marinara sauce for dipping.

Makes 5-6 dozen
