There is a saying that references molasses that goes “slow as molasses in January”. While the origins of this saying date back to the Great Molasses Flood of January 15th of 1919, when over 2.5 million gallons of molasses from a 58 foot tank broke loose and caused a tidal wave of molasses of over 30 feet that tore the steel supports off the nearby elevated train structure.
Almost 100 years later, the term is stil used as is molasses. This simple by-product is made from refining sugarcane and/or sugar beets into sugar. The result is a slow pouring sweet syrup that when added to cookies, makes a chewy, sweet and delicious cookie.
When I recently received a press release that the Dancing Deer Baking Co had released a molasses cookie that was gluten free, I knew I wanted to give it a try.
One of my favorite local deli’s is Miltons in Del Mar – the soup, the sandwiches, the deserts and every piece in between is tasty and delicious.
When I originally heard that they also have a craft baking division I was excited to bring home that Milton’s goodness. Milton’s has continued the tasty tradition with the Milton’s Gluten Free Baked Chipsthat are crispy as well as tasty!
Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome – March 2017 Review
I believe that every day should have an element of pure randomness. This could be a phone call from an unexpected friend that you have not spoken to in many years, or a piece of mail that you were not expecting.
Each month when I receive the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome by That Daily Deal.com my love of randomness is fulfilled. Each month no theme is chosen for this monthly box, but rather a selection of random gender neutral items that will undoubtedly meet a need of yours or a lucky recipient that you were unaware you had.
There are a few holidays throughout the year that are synonymous with certain treats and sweets. Since we are young kids, we know when we see a bunny it is either hollow, or solid, and sometimes filled with a chocolate ganache varieties.
With the approaching hollow chocolate holiday, I started thinking that a chocolate review would be a perfect addition and that is how I came across a company called Ticket Chocolate.
Masala Pop: Indian Spiced Popcorn Review + Giveaway
Often times my review items find their way to me by pure coincidence and other ones are by chance. When I heard that a company I have worked with in the past now is working with an Indian Spiced Popcorn company I was intrigued.
My sister in law is married to a French-Morrocan man, and thus my nieces and nephews are adept and used to the Indian spices. Since our household is not as familiar with these, I decided to seize on this opportunity in hopes that I would be able to recommend something yummy to my extended family. The company I was hoping to share was Masala Pop which makes an Indian inspired line of Masala popcorn’s.
NeoCell: Collagen Bars Review + Expo West Blogger Bag Giveaway
As a blogger I get to go to expo and shows, which results in many cool and exclusive items not available yet to the general public.
When I went to the Natural Products Expo I visited the NeoCell Laboratories booth. While I was there I had the opportunity to get a special blogger bag and an opportunity to sample the new collagen bars. By using collagen to assist in re-engaging the body’s own potential for healing and rejuvenation, the products can help retain youthful looking skin. It is for that reason I am super excited to have the opportunity to give one reader a blogger bag like the one I received.

For that reason I am so excited to have the opportunity to give some away for one reader to try!
Milton’s Craft Bakers: Gourmet and Snack Cracker Review & Giveaway
As I have mentioned in the past, I get to sample, try and attend many things as a blogger. A couple of weeks back I went to the Gluten-Free Allergen Friendly Expo here in San Diego and I had the opportunity to see one of my favorite local brands – Milton’s Craft Bakers.
The Milton’s Craft Baker crew is about 10 minutes from my house and since I am such a fan of support of local companies, I was happy to see them. Our path’s crossed again at the Natural Product Expo, and I felt it was the “blogiverse” telling me that I had to review their gourmet and snack crackers.
