Todd & Erin’s Shop Locally Holiday Guide – Rogliano’s Italian Dressing

The Todd & Erin “Shop Locally” Holiday Guide – Rogliano’s Italian Dressing.

I have a 6’6 mountain of a brother that’s a hard-core carnivore. He was “Keto-friendly” before there was such a thing. So I buy him a case of Rogliano’s Italian Dressing every year for his Christmas gift. Aside from being ridiculously tasty, this stuff acts as a marinade … part of your crockpot meal … ribs … pasta salads … pork … sandwiches … shrimp … it even makes a perfect gourmet grilled cheese sandwich and panini when you baste dressing on your bread instead of butter.

Would you like a free bottle of Rogliano’s?

Just send us one of your recipes that’s made better with a little Rogliano’s added and we’ll send you a bottle! You can add it in the comments below or send it to:


But here’s why I love Rogliano’s: Jeff and Veronica.

They’re the owners of this lovely, tasty business and they’re at every local fundraiser, every community event, and they epitomize “shopping local.” Rogliano’s is carried in select local grocery stores, from Harmons, Macey’s, Lee’s, Fresh Market and Dick’s Market.  You can find all the locations that carry them here. If you don’t want to have to actually leave the house, you can order them online as well at Rogliano’ There are all kinds of lovely recipes online as well, just in case you have “chef fatigue” and you can’t think of one more thing to cook. Jeff describes their tasty dressing like this:

“The recipe for Rogliano’s Italian dressing has been a family tradition since 1922. The authentic Italian taste comes straight from the old country and is not only a delicious salad dressing, but makes a great dipping sauce, seasoning or marinade that is superb for grilling.”


They’ve dressed up their bottles for the holidays, so it tucks nicely into a Christmas stocking, a gift basket (or in my gigantic brother’s case, a side of beef and a case of Rogliano’s) and part of anything that needs extra tastiness. Here’s a store locator to find your Rogliano’s fix closest to you. You can also find them on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Want to pick up a bottle in person?

Support local businesses this holiday!

Supporting Rogliano’s by throwing a boatload of bottles in your shopping cart is one of the best ways to show love a local business. The folks at Rogliano’s are here for the community at charities … holiday events … Erin’s Night Out … Look! Even Kevin (Hercules) Sorbo loves them. And so do I.

Everybody loves Rogliano’s. Even Governor and Mrs. Herbert know a local treasure when they see one.


Todd & Erin’s “Shop Locally” Holiday List – Bonnie’s Joy Pin-up

Todd & Erin’s “Shop Locally” Holiday List – Bonnie’s Joy Pin-up. I can’t imagine a more satisfying gift than one that makes you look and feel beautiful, and gives you photographic proof. I’ve been wanting to do a vintage, “pin-up girl” photo for the Todd for a while, he loooves that style. And there’s nothing more satisfying than that look of misty gratitude on the face of your partner when they see a picture of you all dolled up for them.


Meet today’s “Shop Locally” Legend- Bonnie’s Joy Pin-up. Photographer Alyssa Chambers, the brains behind the concept, says “I founded the service on a love of the pin-up style, Bonnie’s Joy is a retro centered photography company based out of Salt Lake City. I have a variety of services and ever- changing themes, so Bonnie’s Joy is a fun, unique experience for each guest.”


Essentially, you can book a single session for $120: including professional hair, makeup, photoshoot, style guide, custom pinup or boudoir theme, wardrobe available, 8 to 10 edited digital prints, and print ordering through Smug Mug. Half the fun is seeing how much these cute women enjoy being transformed into luscious creatures during the photoshoot. We all want to look beautiful, but Alyssa also makes you feel beautiful- and it shines through in your photos. (Editor’s note: this is an extraordinarily low price for a photo shoot. Including makeup and hair, these shoots usually run between $350-700.)

Embrace The “Good Enough” Holiday & Forget The “Perfect” One – 12.11.18

Embrace The “Good Enough” Holiday & Forget The “Perfect” One. Go for “Good Enough.” That’s my mantra this holiday, and especially after talking to Dr Julie Hanks about the pressure we all put on ourselves to make the holiday “perfect.” I’m challenging everyone to put up an imperfect craft, or cookie, or something that shows your friends and the people you influence that you’re not “perfect.” Let’s support each other!


Plus, more embarrassingly easy treats. Also, embarrassing because my Milano Reindeer Cookies still look a little feeble. But I posted my imperfection! Embrace The “Good Enough” Holiday!


In Tell Me Something Good, two epic elderly ladies who buy up 1.5 million dollars in medical debt to help families with ill members breathe easier for the holidays, and who was that mysterious movie star who paid for half a million dollars of gifts in layaway at Walmart? So our “Shop Locally” business today is Rogliano’s Italian Dressing. Everyone loves this stuff. Kevin (Hercules) Sorbo loves this stuff. Are you going to disagree with Hercules? I think not.

Failing Spectacularly At The Whisper Challenge – 12.7.18

Failing Spectacularly At The Whisper Challenge. What would you take if your husband could drag you 300 years into the past? I kept up with the argument that maybe my cellphone would work some some time-space continuum, but…

Another Whisper Challenge, which we fail at spectacularly.

Something about oxen and a barn… I dunno. We both suck at this. (Editor’s note: if you need some funny new phrases for your next Whisper Challenge round, try here and here on our Pinterest page.

Did you know we’re opening our cans all wrong?

Also… the tuna industry’s sales have dropped 50% because of one weird reason: millennials. They don’t own can openers. Speaking of can openers, did you know there’s a correct way to open one and none of us are doing it? Enjoy our DIY video.

Creating Holiday Traditions – The Christmas Tree Memory String – 11.27.18

Creating Holiday Traditions – The Christmas Tree Memory String. What are your holiday traditions? One of our favorites is the Christmas Tree Memory String- the bottom disc of each year’s tree attached to a ribbon. It’s so fun to count through the years and remember all the highlights. What’s your favorite ritual during this time of year? For instance…


Creating Holiday Traditions. Zoe and I (our 7 year old) are really getting into baking tiny desserts. Some are Pinterest-worthy, others, more like “nailed it!” The Teeny-Tiny Pumpkin Pies (with a one net carb, sugar-free version!) are freaking delicious. Add the recipe to your baking traditions from here.


Oh, by the way- every single food item is out to kill you. Seriously. The federal government has recalled just about anything you can put in your mouth and chew. Oh, honey. Romaine lettuce was just the beginning… pork wontons… ground beef… ground turkey… and the most egregious, evil thing of all- Cap’n Crunch Peanut Butter cereal. You will have to pry my Cap’n Crunch Cereal from my cold, dead hands. Which apparently could be an option. Salmonella has been one busy pathogen this fall…
