I don’t really like to write rant posts. They just aren’t my style. But today I’m going against that. Feel free to skip to the recipe if you’re not into reading rants.

Last week my hubby and I decided to make a photo book on Shutterfly. Since it was my first time ordering from Shutterfly they included several additional offers for us to choose from. The offer that seemed the most appealing was a FREE one-month subscription to Netflix and a $50 gift certificate for Restaurant.com after we signed up for the Netflix subscription.

So I signed up for Netflix and started adding things to my queue. The next morning I tried to redeem my Restaurant.com certificate. There were no participating restaurants in our area. Frak. Okay, I told myself, I’ll just input the zip code for downtown Honolulu since it searches for restaurants in a 15 mile radius. No participating restaurants in that area either. Double Frak. I put the zip codes for Ewa Beach, Kapolei, Pearl City, Aiea, Kailua, Kaneohe, and even Haleiwa in the search generator. No dice.

Alright, I said. Maybe I’ll try Hilo, which is where my hubby’s parents live (and also on another island). No luck. How about Kona? His parents have a time share near there that we often stay at. Nada. Waikoloa? There was ONE place listed but it didn’t really look like somewhere I’d really want to try.

Hmmm… what am I going to do now, I wondered. I decided to check out their online partners which could send you items directly to your home. The merchants didn’t seem too bad. But wait. What’s this? They all REQUIRED A MINIMUM PURCHASE OF $75 OR MORE. After being super frustrated with this whole ordeal, I just ended up asking a friend (who lives in San Antonio, Texas) if she wanted me to get her a certificate for one of the restaurants there.

Soooo… if you live on Oahu and see an offer for Restaurant.com, DON’T TAKE IT.

Ok. Rant over.

Look.

Biscoff cookies.

Ice cream. The perfect post-rant thing to eat.

  1. Oh, I need an ice cream maker! I recently found Dulce de Leche ice cream at the store, but how much better it would be homemade and with Biscoff!!!

    • I’m totally addicted to anything Biscoff. I can eat Biscoff spread straight out of the jar. Hope you all have a lovely rest of your week! :)

  2. You have no idea how much I want dulce de leche ice cream since I saw this entry, but I have to watch what I eat now. I’m living vicariously through you and whomever eats this awesome dessert!

    • I’m going to be trying a vegan cupcake recipe I found on Chef Chloe’s website {http://chefchloe.com/} sometime in the next couple of weeks. If it turns out okay I’ll post the pics from it on my blog and hopefully you’ll be able to try it out. :)
