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.
When I think of Spring one of the first flavors that come to mind is a simple cake batter flavor. The simple flavor gives a great base for a simple bunny cake. During these Spring days, it can be hard to be in the kitchen cooking, so having a cake batter cookie at arms length is a positive addition to the season.
Since we are such cookie fans of all cookies, I am thrilled to give you the opportunity to win a 4 pack of Mrs. Thinster’s cookies to add to your baskets this Spring season.
Fill Your Basket with Pipcorn Giveaway – Spring 2017
As I mentioned when I originally did the review for Pipcorn, I was introduced to them via my television. Pipsnacks made an impression on me immediately, since theirs was a hul-less popcorn and was very tasty.
With the Easter holiday approaching, there are many ways to fill a basket. Since Pipcorn had made Oprah’s Favorite Things list twice and touted as easier to digest it makes the perfect addition to upcoming Easter Baskets.
When I recently attended the Gluten Free + Allergen Friendly Expo I was on a search. I was looking for alternatives to my beloved peanut butter. Despite loving peanut butter & Jelly sandwiches, I have found that I end up with severe re-flux a couple of hours after eating.
In the past I have tried different nut butters, and have found a couple I really like. Since I am a fan of different types of foods and tend to go a phase eating only one particular type, it is always better to have more options available to me.
As I mentioned, when I went to the expo, I as on a search for peanut butter alternatives. As luck would have it, I had a sample in my bag from a company called WOWBUTTER. As I tried this sample I was amazed how much it tasted like a high quality peanut butter.
I have mentioned in the past that one of my favorite soaps to use is castile soap. The reason for this is that it is one of the most gentle soaps while remaining the most versatile and adaptable soaps on the market.
As I have gotten older I have seen the need products that are pure and simple. When I was young I loved things that smelled good, and really did not care about the product much further than that. Even when it came to my dog, it was my goal to make him smell good. As I have aged, I have learned what the good smelling things can actually do to your skin,
As I said above, castile soap is versatile and simple. Last year I came across a company called Dr. Jacob Naturals and their line of castile based soaps. I recently reviewed their set of exfoliating bar soaps and received a couple of samples of their liquid soaps. As I was washing my hands that night, I began wondering how this would do in other applications and was eager to give it a try.
Back to the Roots: Garden-in-a-Can Basil + Cilantro Review
Ever since we started cooking our own dinners and relying on pre-packaged meals less, the addition of spices and herbs is forefront in the cooking process.
In light of the fact that we love cooking with fresh herbs, we had begun toying with the idea of growing our own herbs. The problem with this was that we live in a smaller home, and storage and space to grow is not only limited but homeowners regulations are abound about planting. Since we have a nice size porch, we decided that we could dedicate an area on the top and bottom levels towards our own herb gardens. Each time we attempted this either dirt was an issue, weather knocking pots over was the problem or our own lack of a green thumb.
Being a fan of simplicity, and believing that timing is everything, was approached by a company called Back to the Roots, and in addition to selling items like mushroom farms, and farmhouse sets, they also sell Garden-in-a-Can. When I looked at these self-contained can’s I began to see our own grown herbs as a real option in our cooking.
