The Treats Just Keep Coming and a Pie You Must Try!

The Safe & Sound at ZED 451 is right around the corner and tickets are still available (click here to register).

Check out the great swag we have been getting for the gift bags, I might need a bigger bag…

Ener-G has just come out with a new line of biscotti. They have chocolate chip, raisin and cranberry, what a lovely gluten/dairy free way to start your day with a hot cup of coffee. Ener-G recommends heating them in the oven to get the best texture!

Cherrybrook Kitchen’s Gluten Free Dreams Vanilla Graham Mini Cookies are a perfect afternoon snack and I think they would be a lovely base to a pie if you grind them in a food processor, just the right amount of sweet.

A new allergenista favorite, risotto chips are taking Chicago by storm! I love these with hummus and even use them for some crunch in your next taco salad.

Last Sunday, I was sampling product for Mixes from the Heartland at the Caputo’s in Elmwood Park. Although, I couldn't taste this product (it has dairy), the reviews from the crowds were so positive, I just had to share them with you. Mixes from the Heartland Impossible Coconut Pie, how everyone was describing it to me, it is like a custard pie, the mix separates itself giving you a crust with a custard filling topped with toasted coconut sprinkles, people were just raving about it. I had a hard time keeping enough product to sell, it was going that fast. This product requires egg and dairy, I can’t wait to try a dairy free option with coconut milk (I will keep you posted).

I'm definitely going to have to try that mix...I just love Mixes from the Heartland. Everything I've tried so far has been delicious. There are so many options too!
