Sugar Bowl Bakery Review

Sugar Bowl Bakery: Madeleines, Petite Brownies Bites and Apple Fritters Review + Giveaway

In our spare time, we watch a lot of baking shows, and I dream of making the concoctions, creations and decadent deserts. Since I am unable to make these delicious looking creations, I am forced to purchase them.

When I was approached by Sugar Bowl Bakery to try a couple of thier treats, I was immediately interested and my taste buds were excited. Sugar Bowl Bakery has been in business 25 years and is located almost 7 hours north of me, and despite distance, I am still able to try these treats.

Dancing Deer Baking Company: Gluten Free Molasses Cookie Review

Dancing Deer Baking Co.: Gluten Free Molasses Cookie Review + Giveaway

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.

Eat Dutch Waffles: 3 Flavors Review

Eat Dutch Waffles: Traditional, Honey Vanilla and Blueberry Review + Giveaway

One of our favorite things to make and eat are waffles. The reason is that waffles are as delicious as they are versatile. Waffles can be eaten with everything from syrup, to chicken, and can be breakfast to dessert.

The other great thing about waffles is that with their versatility comes variations. One variation of waffles are the Dutch Stroopwaffel. The Stroopwaffel is a waffle cookie that is chewy, and syrup flavored.

When I first began blogging I reviewed a Stroopwaffel sample. Ever since that experience I have been a fan of these chewier variations of the waffles we love. I recently came across a company that originated in the Netherlands, and by the travels of a student, has expanded into the United States. The company, Eat Dutch Waffles sent me some of their Stroopwaffel’s for review.

Happy Hanukkah Oreo® Cookies Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Happy Hanukkah Oreo® Cookies Review + Giveaway

gourmet-gift-baskets-happy-hanukkah-oreo-cookiesOne of my favorite things when I was a teenager and I hosted slumber parties one of my favorite treats were Chocolate Covered Oreos.

Truth be told, I would deliberately make my friends think they were not good so that I would have more. This plan was 1 part genius and 1 part selfish and inevitably I would end up sharing despite my deep desire to hoard them to myself.

When I was contacted recently from GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and saw their Happy Hanukkah Oreo® Cookies I was reminded of those moments of indulgence.

Goodie Girl: Vanilla and Cocoa Slims Review

Goodie Girl: Vanilla and Cocoa Slims Review + Giveaway!!!!

vanilla-and-cocoa-slimsIt is no secret that I am a fan of Goodie Girl Cookies and we share them with our friends and loved ones as often as we can.

Recently my mother in law was mentioning that she loves the yearly mint cookies, but is sad she has to wait once a year to indulge in her favorite cookie. I have kept this in mind and on one of my mass Goodie Girl cookie purchases I bought her a box of Mint Slims.

I was eager to hear her opinion of these gluten-free cookies, and had to contain my excitement when she was taking her first bite. After she had a couple, she looked at me and declared that she likes these more than her previous once a year favorites. About a week later I heard that the box was no longer, and its contents empty.

I loved this moment and it reminded me of why I began the blog in the first place – to share products with people that they otherwise may not have known about. Recently Goodie Girl released a 8-pack package of Mint Slims, as well as Vanilla Slims and Cocoa Slims.
