Alternative Baking Company - One Smart Cookie [Review and Giveaway]

Remember my review of the Alternative Baking Company? Well I reviewed some of the amazing treats some time ago, and I can't wait to tell you about some more treats I had the chance to try recently.

The last time I reviewed some of the awesome, tasty "I can't wait for more" gluten free cookies. Well, this time I had the chance to try something called, "That's One Smart Cookie" made by the same amazing baking company. Check them out below -




I tried out Chocolate Chip and Coconut Fudge. And you know what? I thought they were pretty good! They are definitely not very sweet but actually I didn't mind. You know what I did? I stirred it into my yogurt (which gave it a major upgrade) and I enjoyed myself thoroughly. The chocolate chip has 7 grams of protein (and 8 grams net carbs) and the coconut fudge has 7 grams of protein. These were definitely a treat that needs something with it, like maybe a mild slathering of peanut butter or almond butter, or honey. As a stand alone treat, it won't be as sweet as you may like it. So definitely expect to pair these with something.


Overall, I am so excited to see what other goodies we can expect from this baking company. I think they have so much to offer the gluten-free world! Purchase "That's One Smart Cookie" by visiting this link and also feel free to like them on Facebook so you can keep track of when they're coming out with the treats in a store near you!

Also purchase other treats that are available for purchase online from alternative baking company, and you will be so happy you did.

Best of all, I get to giveaway a basket full of treats to one lucky reader. Enter via Rafflecopter below.  Giveaway ends 8/22.

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!

I recently had the chance to try out the "American Gluten-Free" food box. Here's the photo of what I received -
