DREAMS AREN’T THIS GOOD Salsa is Inspired by the sights and sounds of NYC

DREAMS AREN’T THIS GOOD Salsa is Inspired by the sights and sounds of NYC

If there is one go-to evening snack for me it is hummus or salsa. I am not much into fire-hot salsas but I do appreciate a mild to medium salsa where I can taste the veggies, fruits and herbs that may be infused. I also don’t appreciate preservatives or added sugars. Those are not at all necessary in a good salsa.

I had not heard of Dreams Aren’t This Good Salsa and Tortilla Chips before I was sent a press release. I live near Seattle and this is clearly a NYC-based brand so it makes sense that I was not familiar. I saw the line, “Focused on flavors, not heat levels, all salsa flavors and tortilla chips are gluten free, vegan and contain no preservatives.”.

I then looked at their flavors and when I saw The Fighter (the garlic cilantro salsa) I had to give it a try. I love cilantro and garlic in about anything I cook. It is a medium heat salsa and because the ingredient list reads: diced tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro, jalapeno pepper, water, salt and lemon juice concentrate it was no wonder I could taste only freshness.

Then there was the Dreams Aren’t This Good tortilla chips! Thick cut and best when you warm them up! It is the perfect pair that far outdoes any store-bought tortilla chip I can find.

They do a fantastic job combining flavors of the South with the sounds and styles of the city that never sleeps. The salsas are available in stores throughout the tri-state area and online at Dreams Aren’t This Good Salsa shop. A portion of sales go to charity!

San Diablo Artisan Churros Take & Bake Churro Kit – Review

San Diablo Artisan Churros Take & Bake Churro Kit - Review

When establishments shut down or scaled back, I never realized how much I would miss certain foods and places. My son missed the Costco churros and I missed salad bars! The shutdowns had me searching for available resources for food and fun and I have discovered some amazing online small businesses I may have never found.

I was introduced to San Diablo Artisan Churros recently and it was like a little bit of heaven landed on our doorstep according to the tween in this house! He followed that package from doorstep to the kitchen counter like my dogs do with their pet store deliveries! We unwrapped the churros and discovered they sent us 2 delicious flavors to try for fillings – dulce de leche and the pumpkin cheesecake.

I decided to use my air fryer to bake our artisan churros and we brought out both fillings. I assume my son liked the pumpkin cheesecake best because I turned around to him squeezing the filling directly into his mouth – lol. They baked so crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. The consistency is not compromised at all in shipping and reheating! One devil’s dozen [13] pre-made, chilled mini churros ready to reheat, fill and devour!

Your order comes with a scratch off card and we won a free 6 pack of San Diablo Artisan Churros! Just some added fun for this sweet order. If you are in Utah you can choose pick up orders, for everywhere else you can order online.

Visit San Diablo Churros to learn more and choose your favorite filling for your order. They have so many great ideas on how to serve these as well! These will be great for Holiday dinners.

It’s our new favorite cracker and by ‘our’ I mean everyone in my home from my husband to my 12 year old. Mary’s Gone Crackers gluten free crackers has ingredients that makes cracker snacking feel less guilty and their Real Thin line of crackers just got 3 new flavors!

You can now enjoy the new flavors of Tomato + Basil, Olive Oil + Cracked Black Pepper and Chipotle (my favorite with some sharp white cheddar)! The ingredient list should be compared to a standard box of crackers so you can really see the goodness.

We love to entertain and cracker, meat and cheese is my go-to appetizer. It is always a hit especially when I choose unique flavors and better cracker options. Mary’s Gone Crackers have been a hit this summer for my small get togethers. I can’t wait to open up more as we work through COVID restrictions and introduce our favorite crackers to more friends.

Similar to the existing line, the new flavors will be crafted with a specially formulated gluten-free flour blend, fresh seasonings, and chia seeds. The current line of Real Thin flavors includes Sea Salt and Garlic and Rosemary.
