Enjoy Life Foods
As you may have noticed, just as more people have become allergic to peanuts, a significant portion of the population is gluten-intolerant. In fact, I have a handful of friends that avoid gluten if at all possible.
That's why I stock up on Enjoy Life products when I'm having people over. They have a number of products to choose from that are gluten-free as well as not containing any of the 8 most common allergens.
Their cookies and snack bars are great to have on hand. Snickerdoodle and chewy chocolate chip cookies satisfy your sweet tooth, while very berry and caramel apple snack bars satisfy your hunger - without having to suffer any side effects that come with gluten intolerance.
I always want to have something for everyone at my parties - and now with Enjoy Life Foods, I can.
Bob's Pickle Pops
There is nothing better on a hot day than a popsicle to cool you down. But why get regular ol' orange when you can have Pickle Pops?!
These will get people talking at your party! Not only are they good for you, they are a wonderful treat for those of us who love pickles, olives, capers and the like.
You can order yours here, but be warned - they are highly addictive! I consumed almost all of them before anyone else had a chance at them...
Party after party, people roll out the same damn crackers - table water, cream and cheese. Now really, there is nothing wrong with this. They are all fine choices, but I say it's time to get a little more inventive, a little more bold in what you serve at your next shindig!
That's why I am rockin' Doctor Kracker flatbreads.
These dense, organic and artisan-baked flatbreads have what the company calls "uber crunch," thanks to being jam-packed with tons of organic whole-grains and seeds. And because they are thick and crunchy, you can use them with spreads, pates, sliced meats, sliced vegetables, jams (see below), and any topping you like - there's nothing that these krackers can't hold!
There is a wide selection to choose from - Klassic 3 Seed, Pumpkin Cheddar, Seeded Spelt, Sunflower Cheddar and Seedlander.
So amp up your party with interesting choices - and Doctor Kracker.
Ecobooma Jenkins Jellies
When having people over, I often put together a bamboo wood tray of crackers, pate, assorted charcuterie, cheeses, fruit, etc.
Recently, I have found that adding jams, jellies and chutneys really elevates the meat and cheese and suddenly your guests simply can't get enough.
One of my favourite finds is Ecobooma Jenkins Jellies. Homegrown and homemade, these wonderfully fragrant and bright concoctions are made with local, organic ingredients from Los Angeles, California.
They come in 8 oz. or 16 oz. glass jars that are packaged using recycled products and "often reusing decorative touches or samplings from the garden."
I got Sassy Satsuma Marmalade, which not only received rave reviews and standing ovations at my last party, but the following evening I glazed chicken and ham with it and my fella and I oohed and ahhed at how incredibly posh and decadent it had made our dinner.
Not only are these jellies made with great love and care, but they go towards a good cause as well. A portion of Ecobooma's profits will be donated to The Bruce Paltrow Oral Cancer Fund and EMA (Environmenal Media Association).
