I know…I’ve had writer’s block for like a year and a half. At this point…you can’t even make excuses or try to give reasonable explanations for that long of a hiatus, you just have to apologize ( I am truly sorry), ask for forgiveness (please forgive me), and do better. Which, I plan to do. I got my second wind…and I’m about to soar!
Okay, moving along….here’s today’s post. It’s a haul! Yay!
Keep in mind, as always…what we consider allergy-friendly (milk-free, egg-free) may not be allergy-friendly for you. Always, always check ingredients. So, here’s a little about each of the items in today’s haul.
Hampton Creek’s Just Italian: Love it! Tastes great! A little heavy on the spice though. I found it at Walmart, so I didn’t have to search multiple stores, which is great. No egg, No dairy…win! win!
Hampton Creek’s Just Mayo: Ya’ll know I love this stuff! ‘Nuff said.
Sky Valley’s Korean BBQ sauce: It’s vegan, so I’m excited to try it. I haven’t yet, but i’ll be particularly surprised if it tastes even remotely authentic. My best friend is half Korean, so I’ve eaten a fair share of Korean BBQ so far in my adult life, and i’ll probably judge this stuff pretty hard. I’ll keep you guys posted.
Organicville Marinara Sauce: It’s vegan, so it gets my vote right there, and it happens to taste fabulous! It has just the right amount of spice, not too overwhelming. I get it at Target, so it’s fairly easy to find. I do have one complaint about it, it’s kind of thin in consistency, but you can fix that by adding a bit of tomato paste to it. However, if you add paste, you may have to do some seasoning additions as well, particularly sugar. But, all in all, it’s my go-to jar marinara sauce.
Hampton Creek’s Just Cookies: They’re dairy free, and egg free. I found these at Target and was super stoked! But, when I looked on the back of the package, it did say “may contain milk”…bummer:( That means, I won’t be giving it to my DS because of the risk of contamination, but my husband and I will eat them. I got the chocolate chip, and they were really, really good.
Hampton Creek’s Just Ranch: Best. Dressing. Ever…that’s all I’ve got to say.
