Snickers Bites for Baking, reviewed

Snickers Bites for Baking, reviewed

If you’ve spotted the new Snickers product in the baking aisle recently, you might have thought that I partnered up with the candy bar giant because their product is called Snickers Baking Bites. If anyone out there from Snickers is reading this, I would love to do a recipe for the back of the packaging. Alas, I was not consulted about the name of this particular ... Read More »

Trader Joe's Mini Cinnamon Sugar Churros, reviewed

Churros have been a favorite treat of mine since childhood. Unlike cookies and cupcakes, which were relatively easy to come by on a daily basis, churros were the sort of treat that you could only find at the fair or at Disneyland. I’ll often stop by a churro stand when I spot one, no matter where in the world I am, and have been known ... Read More »

Pillsbury Tropical Mango Cake Mix, reviewed

I’m not sure that I’ve ever eaten a mango-flavored cake – though I have used mango in many other desserts - but I am a huge mango fan and was instantly curious when I spotted Pillsbury Tropical Mango Cake Mix, a summer release, in the baking aisle recently. I picked up a box and resolved to give it a try. Mango has a distinct sweetness and I ... Read More »

Cook’s Country Rates Supermarket Whipped Toppings

Cook's Country Rates Supermarket Whipped Toppings

A dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream is a great way to finish off a rich dessert. You can easily make it at home using heavy cream and a whisk or a food processor, but there are times when it simply seems easier to pick up some ready made whipped topping at the supermarket. Sold in both aerosol cans and tubs, supermarket whipped toppings are extremely convenient ... Read More »

Cadbury Creme Eggs are one of the best selling candies of the Easter season. The traditional eggs have a milk chocolate shell and are filled with white and yellow fondant that resembles the interior of a “real” egg. They’re sweet and satisfying. Over the years, there have been several variations on the classic creme eggs. These include chocolate-filled eggs and caramel-filled eggs. This year, I ... Read More »

Limited edition flavors are all the rage these days, whether you’re talking about a special holiday beverage at Starbucks or a seasonal Oreo cookie flavor. Eagle Brand, known for its sweetened condensed milk, has also been testing out some limited edition flavors that are designed to show off how versatile sweetened condensed milk can be.

Cinnamon Bun Oreos, reviewed

Cinnamon Bun Oreos, reviewed

I like cinnamon buns and cinnamon-bun related goodies, such as donuts topped with cinnamon sugar and yeasted coffee cakes with a cinnamon streusel topping. Who doesn’t? Naturally, I had to pick up a container of the new Cinnamon Bun Oreos after I heard that they were being released as a new cookie flavor this month. The sandwiches are made with cinnamon cookies and are filled with ... Read More »

Beekman 1802 Cranberry Orange Scone Mix, reviewed

Beekman 1802 Cranberry Orange Scone Mix, reviewed

Just before Christmas, I noticed that the Beekman 1802 brand had made its way into my local Target store. The lifestyle & food brand was previously only available through specialty stores and online, so it was interesting to see  that they were offing wide variety of packaged sauces, rubs and baking mixes! The last time that I tried a Beekman 1802 mix, I think that I ... Read More »
