Baked Holiday Treats and Delicious Gifts from Dancing Deer Baking Co. + a Giveaway
Sometimes gift giving can be an emotional rollercoaster. There are many things to consider such as the type of git, the recipient and the message behind the gift. Recently my husband started a new job and with the holidays are approaching we are already thinking of gift giving to a couple of co-workers that have made the transition.
Since we are still getting to know these people so I have started looking for gifts that would be appropriate yet thoughtful. Earlier in the year I did a review for Dancing Deer Baking Co, and as it happens they also have a wide selection of baked treats that would make great gifts!
Mix It Up This School Year with Whole Note Foods Muffin Mix Giveaway
In the busy mornings, having easy and healthy food to eat in the mornings can make the difference between a mediocre day and a terrific day. One of my favorite morning snacks is muffins. Muffins are easy to eat, easy to grab and easy to store on the go. One of my favorite muffin’s blueberry and banana. The potassium in the bananas and the antioxidants in blueberries make a great AM punch.
A couple years ago I discovered Whole Note Food Company and with their Create-a-Muffin Mix I can make any muffin I want. Just in time for back to school one winner will have their choice of 3 boxes of mixes and add to your morning routine.
When i think of the the holidays, I think of a potluck style meal, where everybody brings their favorite side dish.
A couple of years ago I got over zealous and made over 7 different types of bread. I searched online, pinning boards and my bread recipe collection. I ended up making a couple of pumpkin bread’s, a couple of banana bread’s, a cranberry-apple bread, and a zucchini bread. The process was laborious and as one baked, another would be loaded into the oven.
Since that holiday, each time there is a potluck, I am the “official” bread baker of the family. With the added awareness of gluten sensitivities, my once simple bread making process has changed and I end up making 1/2 of the breads gluten-free.
With my bread making duties starting and the holidays approaching, I am looking for time-saving ways to create many loafs, minus the work. One way I have learned to save time is to purchase the “base” of the bread from Whole Note Food Company, and add the fresh fruits and vegetables to the mix prior to baking.
