Food Favorites: January 2016

One word: s’mores. Nothing beats them. We had such a fun time roasting marshmallows over our fire pit while my family was visiting earlier this month. I think these gluten-free graham crackers taste better than regular graham crackers!

S'mores Over the Fire Pit | Trés Belle

Taza’s Pan de Jengibre chocolate bar. Holy moly. I bought some on sale at Thrive Market after Christmas and am so in love, I wish I had bought more. Don’t care one bit that it is after Christmas and gingerbread is “out.” This stuff is pure T amazing.

1915 cold-pressed organic juice. I posted a couple of months ago about the Suja juices we’ve been loving. The 1915 juices are pretty similar, though the flavors vary somewhat. We rotate between the 1915 juices and the Suja juices just depending on which brand is on sale. Paying full price for these juices gets expensive! We love the extra dose of organic fruits and veggies, though.

Lots and lots of guac. We have always been guacamole lovers, but Wes has really been killing it in the guac department ever since I got him this nifty avocado tool for Christmas. I wish I could say that we have a homemade recipe, but since we are often pushed for time (especially right now while I’m studying for my licensure exam), we usually use this mix.

Five-Spice Sangria | Trés Belle

For local readers in the Raleigh area: This month was fabulous for my taste buds on account of Five-Spice Sangria at Trophy Brewing, Pumpkin Gingerbread Spoon Cake at Irregardless Cafe, Dirty Shirleys with Covington vodka (local and gluten-free!) at buku, and Succotash Farro Risotto/Chocolate Ganache Tart with Salted Caramel/Moscow Mules at Fiction Kitchen. Now you have dinner and/or drinking plans for next weekend. You’re welcome!

That’s all for this month, y’all…not much cooking going on around here with me studying my tail off for this exam. February 19th needs to come and go, stat!

xoxo Laura
