Asiagos Italian Restaurant Boise with a Gift Certificate

I am a Review Crew Member. All opinions expressed are my own.

Have you ever gone out to dinner and you and your spouse have completely different experiences?

You have a great meal and would go back to have it again while your spouse has a meal that is not very great and he is not sure what to say about it?

This is what happened to us when we visited Asiago’s Restaurant in Boise last week.  Prior to our trip to Boise we looked at and picked out a couple of restaurants that looked great.

We printed off our gift certificates and planned out what restaurants we would eat at. I love being able to save while we travel with gift certificates. We can try out great restaurants and save money while we do it.

Sooooo We went to Asiago’s on a Thursday night and asked if they had seating available. We were informed that they were booked but we could make a reservation for late that night or go back on Friday. We decided to go back on Friday and made reservations for dinner.

We had our hopes up that if the restaurant was full on a Thursday night in February it must be amazing.

Fast forward to Friday night and our interesting date night.

Sooo are you wondering what in the world the picture above is?

P.F. Changs new Holiday menu items are sure to please!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of P.F. Changs for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

You all know I love to cook and bake but some nights I just want to get out of the house and have dinner made for me. There is just something so incredibly nice about sitting down at a table and being handed a menu and seeing all of the amazing options I don’t have to cook.

Maggies South Hill Grill with Gift Certificate

Thank you to for sponsoring today’s post and helping us surprise John’s Mom with a great lunch. We love using gift certificates to help save on eating out. I cook all the time, which I love, but there are days I just don’t feel like being in the kitchen. These are the days that becomes an absolute life saver. Ok maybe not a life saver but a stress saver, sanity keeper and a much needed break creator.

We went with John’s Mom to the Social Security office to find out about her retirement and what she needed to do to be on schedule to retire next year. After sitting in the social security office for longer than I really want to think about we were all ready for lunch. We decided to check out Maggies South Hill Grill here in Spokane. I had heard great things about Maggies over the past few years and have really been wanting to check it out.

Anyplace that is known for their amazing sweet potato fries is on my to do list. I am so happy to report that Maggie’s did not disappoint. In fact I think Maggie’s has taken a spot on my top 5 restaurant list here in Spokane.

OH MY GOODNESS!! The food and the service were exceptional! If you have been thinking about visiting Maggie’s or are looking for a great meal out head to the South Hill and check out Maggie’s! You will not be disappointed!


Maggie’s South Hill Grill is not a huge restaurant but dang do they produce some amazing food….

Date night at Willow Springs Cheney with a Gift Certificate

A huge thank you to for giving us the opportunity to get out of the house and not cook dinner this week! Do you ever have those nights where the idea of walking into the kitchen and opening the refrigerator door is downright painful?  The nights were the last thing you want to do is look at a pot, pan, oven, or really anything else in your kitchen?

I don’t have these nights often but when I do I really need to get out of the house. One thing about working from home is you are always home. There are times I don’t leave the house for longer than I should probably admit. Every once in a while I just need to get out and have someone else do the cooking. That is how I was feeling this week. John came home and asked what we were having for dinner and I looked at him blankly.  I finally responded that we were having something that someone else was cooking.

John laughed and walked over to his computer. He knows when I say that it is time to go out I am ready to leave the house and take a break. He brought up the website and found a gift certificate for Willow Springs Restaurant in Cheney. He had heard that they have great food and really good service.

We hopped in the car and headed to Cheney to try out Willow Springs.

When we arrived I really wasn’t sure what to expect. The restaurant ended up being really cozy and nice….

Chili’s Pick a Pepper Menu Review

Chili’s has a great new Pick Your Pepper Menu!  John and I had dinner at the Chili’s here in Spokane to check out this great new menu. John was super excited to try one of the new entrees. He absolutely loved the Chicken Fajitas. He loved them so much that we ended going twice in a week to Chili’s!

John tried the Smoky Chipotle Chicken Fajitas – Sizzling grilled chicken, sautéed onions and bell peppers kicked-up with chipotle pesto sauce and melted Monterey Jack cheese. Topped with crispy onion strings.

The menu also includes:

  • Santa Cruz Steak – 100% USDA Choice 6 oz. sirloin topped with seasoned butter and a side of tangy verde sauce. Served over fire-roasted corn salsa with jalapeño-cheddar mashed potatoes.
  • Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Chicken – Grilled chicken breast served over a zesty roasted red pepper cream sauce. Topped with melted pepper Jack cheese and served with rice and steamed broccoli.  
  • Chipotle Salmon – Seared Cajun-spiced salmon with a smoky chipotle-garlic pesto cream sauce. Served with rice and steamed broccoli.
