Hubby started a ‘diet’ this month. I said, “What! No way! Can’t start til January!” ha! There is so many fun treats to eat this month and I will tell you that you won’t feel guilty eating any on this list. Buy for food gifts, eat for snacks, and get ideas for new food and drinks. Enjoy!
Ask me if I want a meal delivery service for Christmas? YES! No more planning and shopping! I love seeing a box of food at my door. Sun Basket is great. Not only do they have a lot of yummy options for meals, but everything is Non-GMO and a lot is Organic.
The one thing I am always worried about is if the kids will eat it. I need family-friend meals. My whole family loved our meals this week! All the food was prepped and ready to go. All I had to do was assemble with the easy directions. Mamas you need to add this!
Fresh fettucine with braised pork, wilted greens, and parmesan.
Chicken taquitos with guacamole and pickled jalapenos.
Huge honey fan here. I never use syrup on my pancakes. Honey only. For a sweet treat I add it on top of a banana or an apple. The kids love it too! Bake with it? Of course! A big bottle is always stocked in my pantry.
I look for local. Do you? Rice’s Honey has local beekeepers all across the country. 100% pure. Nothing added and nothing removed. Did you know that each region may taste a little different? Find your region! Great reviews on Amazon too.
Local Hive Colorado Honey

Favorite Trio Gift Set for those who love to get creative in the kitchen. I love the tin can containers.
Many options on what to do with oils! Roast veggies, add to sauces, grill chicken, make a salad dressing, dip your bread. Yum!
“Making outstanding oil is an expertise that is part art, part science; every detail counts from the timing of the harvest, the careful selection of the fruit, to the technique for pressing. We pride ourselves in offering you the best.” – on La Tourangelle’s French Heritage that started 150 years ago.
Another great company with a long history. Started in the 1940s, Renfro Foods started making spices and pepper sauces in their Texas garage. Today they’ve expanded to 30+ products – gourmet salsas, bbq sauce, creamy queso, relish, and jalapeno peppers.
Great for taco night – grilling out – appetizer dips – gourmet sandwiches – gifts for friends. Need ideas? Visit their recipes.
They say gourmet and I say unique. Find flavors like Ghost Pepper Nacho Cheese, Craft Beer Salsa, Raspberry Chipotle Salsa, Green Tomato Pickles, and many many more. Check them all out! I think their prices are great. Plus you can order bulk on Amazon.

Stryve: meat sticks and jerky have become a stable snack at my house for snacks or I’ll throw them in the boy’s school lunch to make it easy.

There are many flavors!
