There are so many wonderful food blogs and recipe videos out there. I love to save the cool recipes I see on Tik Tok and Pinterest because they really inspire me to try some new things. I try and make a list based on food bloggers recommendations to try, whether it is a new recipe or a restaurant. If you don’t know, I am a true foodie at heart and I really enjoy trying new things.
Some of my favorite posts from food bloggers are the ones where they go and try out different restaurants and tell you what their favorite foods/dishes are from that place. This has given me the idea to do something a little bit different. My idea was to visit different areas/cities and research places from other bloggers of things they have enjoyed.
I have a picnic basket that I wanted to fill with goodies from different eateries and places in an area. The first area that I took on was Lancaster, Pennsylvania. We love traveling to this area because it’s a short drive and we enjoy the views while driving. We took a day trip to visit an Amish Market to find some new foods and snacks to try. My mom and I were amazed at some the food and snacks they had to offer. When I saw the candy shop, I knew I’d have to try some of the gourmet candy. My mom was really intrigued by the homemade broths and stocks that they had as well. So, my mom got the wild mushroom soup and I bought a few hard candy sticks and gummy fruit slices. The candy didn’t let long and with the soup stock, we’re planning on making a savory mushroom and chicken soup with it (recipe coming soon!).
After the market, we went to an Amish Grocery store and got some corn chips, popcorn, and bags of frozen fruit! We also got apricot and peach flavored gelatin which we plan on making a recipe with as well. With that, we loaded up our picnic basket and headed home.
Here’s the picnic basket loaded with some of the goodies that we got:
