Gluten Free Treat Ideas: Emmy's Organics Macaroons

I have to say the cookies I'm about to share with you didn't last an HOUR at home. We tore into them like there was no tomorrow. So I can't wait to tell you about them!

Emmy's Organics started out in 2008 when Samantha and Ian met at a musical festival. Later when Ian tried out a cookie recipe at his mom's kitchen (aka Emmy), Samantha thought these would look great in a little package and soon Emmy's was born. Emmy's Organics started in a small (certified) kitchen and soon running the business from a basement was no longer big enough for them to handle all the business coming in! Read more about their amazing and inspiring story on their website!

I tried out a few different flavors of macaroons - Dark Cacao, Lemon Ginger and Coconut Vanilla. Out of all the flavors I tried, my personal favorite is Lemon Ginger. I personally love lemon (in general) but in the context of a sweet treat it's even better. It's SO good and you can actually taste the lemon inside. I loved the Dark Cacao too - it wasn't too overly sweet and you can tell they used the good dark chocolate. I did like the coconut vanilla but the flavor wasn't as powerful as these other two kinds.

Overall I highly recommend these. Easter is just around the corner and I think this would make a perfect little addition to an Easter basket or heck just something to have as a treat yourself.

Make sure you visit their website and purchase your own macaroons! You might also be able to find them in a store near you, so click here to find out.

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.

If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.

So that's when subscription boxes can help. It's an excellent way of finding new things to try, getting some extra snacks, and opening up your horizon to new foods. Whether you are celiac or gluten-intolerant or simply eat gluten-free by choice, it's time to broaden those horizons!
