THANK YOU COOKIE DOUGH GODS. THANK YOU { Meet Edoughble }

[ 0 ] November 12, 2014 |

I can’t. I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am at this very moment. It’s not because my daughter did something monumental, like saying “mama” or “cupcake”. Oh dear god, please let her first word be cupcake… Anyway – this my friend, is way better.

I, single handedly, and without the help of anyone else (such as my hubby, UNCRATE, or Edoughble…) have discovered the secret to pure, unadulterated cookie-dough-eating bliss.  If you’re hitched, call a divorce lawyer.   I promise you’re going to want to marry every single flavor of cookie dough Edoughblehas to offer…and then some.

Edoughble

Here’s the scoop (Get it,  scoop?. Like, “scoop of cookie dough”? Ha ha. I kill myself). I stumbled across this fabulous cookie dough company through my hubby, who was scanning through UNCRATE the other night.  After he gave me the tip-off, I couldn’t sleep.  I tossed and turned all night long fantasizing about the many ways me and the cookie dough would become one.  These guys better lock their kitchen doors, because I’m obsessed.

If you want to send a thank you note to the fabulous team behind this magical treat, address it to Rana & John, hubby and wife…or as they say it – “Dough-Founders” (don’t you love them already?).  We all know that eating raw cookie dough can wreak havoc on your belly – who knew something so wonderous could get us so sick (oh, hello there raw eggs).  This very concept prompted the Dough-Founders to do something friggin’ awesome: “… serve fellow cookie dough lovers like you a bite of handmade cookie dough perfection that instantly reminds you just how sweet and simple life can be. No baking. No scary raw egg. Just pure, doughy, unapologetically sugary, spoon-ready deliciousness made with the best ingredients and mix-ins.”   The fact that they used the phrase “unapologetically sugary” as a description of their treats makes me love them even more.

Let’s be honest,  I’m dying to try each of the eight, mouth-watering flavors available.  BUT, since I still have a couple of baby weight pounds to shed, I will limit myself to two three 8 ounce packages of heaven (which I will devour privately in my closet when the baby is taking nap):

Chocoloate_Chip_Off_The_Ol_Block_final_grande_largeCHOCOLATE CHIP OFF THE OL’ BLOCK

Old-school flavor gets a modern makeover in this classic combo of creamy cookie dough and premium Callebaut dark chocolate chunks that makes traditional cookie dough seem square.

As an original dessert eating gangster, I’m totally in for kicking it “old school”.

Find it:  here (for $8 bucks)

 

 

Birthday_Bash_final_grande_largeBIRTHDAY BASH

Throw a surprise party for your taste buds with a bite of sugar cookie dough swirled with creamy vanilla frosting and bursting with confetti sprinkles.  So skip the invitations, toss the cake out the window, and celebrate all year long!

Because it’s my birthday EVERY day.  Isn’t it?

Find it:  here (for $8 bucks)

 

 Stuck_On_You_PBJ_final_grande_largeSTUCK ON YOU, PB&J

No need to cut the crusts off this lunch-box favorite.  Peanut butter cookie dough swirled with roasted peanuts and organic mixed berry jam reminds you why it was love at first bite with this timeless duo.

Remember those quadruple decker PB & J’s you could get in 4th grade? Yeah.  Me neither.  I’m in a cookie-dough trance.

Find it:  here (for $8 bucks)

 

STALK:  Be sure to stalk them relentlessly.  If you can get a restraining order out of it, my job here is done.

Okay, I have to go be a parent now.   Happy day I hate to spell!

Here’s what arrived in my sugar package:

DSC_0051Receiving this box was the equivalent of getting an early birthday present.  Everything was wrapped with care & cute!

DSC_0055DSC_0052DSC_0056I am in sweet, sweet love with this lil’ jar of Key Lime candies from Brooklyn Hard Candy (the candies are just as sweet, P.S.).  These babies are “Cooked in small batches using a copper candy kettle, the candy is handcrafted using old school techniques and modern-day formulas.”  Perfection.  Find em:  here (for $24 bucks)

DSC_0061Oh my chewy goodness from Avenue Sweets!  These sweets literally melted in my mouth (and were probably gone before I even finished opening the box).  You’re lucky you got pics!  Find these Almond Nougats, Sea Salt Caramel & Butter Rum Caramel:  here ($19 bucks for a 1lb order)

DSC_0058Here’s the thing about Taffy.  I wanna marry it.  I don’t care if it’s the salt water kind, or the normal kind, if its melty and stretchy or if its harder and chewy.  I love it and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop me.  Try this hand-pulled Mehlenbacher’s Vanilla Bean and/or watermelon Taffy:  here (12 sticks for $22 bucks)

DSC_0059Assuming you have awoken from the candy coma, you should totes hook yourself up with this box of delectable sweetness.  Life would be WAY boring if we didn’t treat ourselves at least once per month!

Aloha!

NEW ALL-NATURAL SNACKITY BOX {Munch-it}

[ 0 ] July 18, 2013 |

Munchit ReviewThis box has the best name ever.  Munchit.  Loveit.  But besides the killer name, it also has a totally sweet concept – weekly portion-controlled snack deliveries.  If you are anything like 99% of the universe, portion control is like, the hardest part of eating.  Sure, I can eat something healthy…but, then I eat 52 servings of it (oh, hello 9,000 calories!).

The awesome thing about this box is that they take the guess work out of your healthy snack time by providing weekly boxes of goodies, each of which include a couple of organic treats and a 180-calorie serving of their custom Munchit mix  (such as Banana Split, Blind Date & Sas Squash).  Ha ha.  Love that one!

You create an online account and select your faves.  The Munchit team chooses the mix, treat(s) & tea and sends that baby to your doorstep. Here’s the scoop:

Here’s what came in my box!

2013-07-11 16.57.46All the goods came packaged snugly in a tiny lil’ box.

2013-07-11 16.58.06I got to try the Route 66 mix which included cranberries, golden-flax seeds, golden raisins & whole almonds.  I’m a huge nut & seed fan, so this mix hit the spot for me.

2013-07-11 16.58.59

As I unpacked the box, I noticed the little personal touches throughout – like the recycled lining (a napkin to use while snacking!) and the special note letting me know that Tim (one of the co-founders) had packaged my snack for me.

2013-07-11 16.59.50For my bevvy, I received a cold brewed iced tea.  I’m not a huge fan of peach, but the husby will totally gulp this down.

2013-07-11 16.59.10Last but not least, some sugar-free Glee gum & and an organic piece of hard candy.

2013-07-11 16.59.20Oh, and I forgot.  Um, how cute is their card?  It has a bite out of it….like a little creature was munching on it…ha ha .  Munchit. Get it?  Get it?  Love.

2013-07-11 16.59.372013-07-11 17.00.04

Yey!  Start munchin’ people!

I SHOULD BE EATING COOKIES…

[ 0 ] July 17, 2013 |

No seriously.  I should be eating cookies at this very moment.  I feel brainwashed by cookie brainwashers.  And, I’m okay with it.

Botanical BakeryThe stars of my cookie fantasies are these fancy lil’ shortbreads from the Botanical Bakery.  I received a package of these babies in my Hammockpack a couple of months ago and as of this very moment, I can’t get them out of my mind. They were insane delish.  So much so, that if the president of all cookies in the land came to my house right now, I’d probably sell my soul to him (or her).  I’m gross.

Anyway – we tasted the Lemon Thyme, but I’m 99% sure all of the flavors are awesome. Described as “Brazen Chunks of Indulgence with a Butter Soul” these sweet treats are made from organic and all natural ingredients.  They “carefully select the most aromatic organic or wild-crafted herbs and spices using the actual leaves, roots, stems, seeds, blossoms or pollen not flavorings or oils”.  

Super fancy…and, super-duper worth it.  Here’s the flavors I plan on inhaling…I mean sampling, in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

Chocolate ChipotleBotanical Bakery Chocolate Chipotle Shorties (3.5 oz)

Two of my favorite flavors smooshed together in the form of a cookie.  Seems to be a match made in heaven.

Find yours:  here for $6.50






Botanical Bakery Thai ChiliNew!  Thai Chili Shorties (3.5 oz)

Oh sweet Thai Chili shortbread dreamies.  Will you be mine?  Will you?

Find yours:  here for $6.50






Botanical Bakery Brown Butter SageBrown Butter Sage Shorties (3.5 oz)

I shouldn’t even have to say it, but I will.  Thanksgiving (in your mouth).

Find yours:  here for $6.50






I’m fat.  Well, not really but I should be based upon the dirty cookie thoughts I’m having.  I’m adding these to my rewards list (treats I give myself for being healthy & fit).  Oh, and P.S.  They also have Cheese Snaps, but that’s a whole other blog post. Can’t wait to indulge.  Stalk away!  Toota-loota-loo!

ELI ZABAR BLONDIE:  Let’s start off with this brownie.  We did.  We opened the box, grabbed the camera lickity-split, took the shot and devoured this baby whole.  It was a naughty, and it felt naughty.  Mission accomplished.

BACORN:  The makers of this snack couldn’t have created something better suited for my belly – two of my faves (popcorn & bacon), smoooshed together in a masterpiece of OMG.  Love.  Didn’t want to share.

DSC_0038

STRANGOZZI WITH SUMMER TRUFFLE:  I’m a total idiot and thought these cute lil’ birdy nest shapped Strangozzi’s where going to stay in birdy nest shape.  But, duh.  Either way, I’m not a huge fan of truffle, but this was a total surprise love.  I kept it simple, with a drizzle of EVOO and some parmesan/romano cheese.  The man fancied it up with some red sauce. He’s crazy like that. WOOT!DSC_0034

ELI ZABAR CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE:  I realize now that I’m a big fat liar.  I was thinking the brownie was the first thing we opened and devoured, but it was actually this gigundo cookie followed immediately by the brownie.  Can you say fatty-pants? Anyway…um,  can a chocolate Chip cookie ever be bad?  No.  No it can’t.DSC_0027

SHORTCAKES PANCAKE / WAFFLE MIX:  We have not tried this yet.   But, I continue to fawn over this container which is SO cute!  I will update you when we give it a taste.  I’m sure these will be awesome…with bacon…and hashbrowns….and….I just died.DSC_0037
