Enjoy Life Soft Baked and Crunchy Cookie Review

Enjoy Life Soft Baked & Crunchy Cookies Review and Giveaway

When ever I go to expo and food shows, one of the first things that I gravitate towards is the cookies.

As I have mentioned in the past I am a cookie monster and have met very few cookies that I do not like.

When I attended the Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly Expo I had the opportunity to walk through Enjoy Life Land by Enjoy Life Foods. The best way to describe the experience was it was like walking the yellow brick road with each step reminding walkers of the allergens that are not present in their products.

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.

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.

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.
