This weeks 15 minute recipe is brought to you by Wholly Guacamole! Since we are a Hispanic/biracial family we LOVE avocado. It’s a staple item in my kitchen but I have not used Wholly Guacamole products prior to this review. I just never really thought about it because i typically make salsa and dips by hand when we use them. Let me tell you though, handmade dips and salsa can take a long time.

I was pleasantly surprised how quick this recipe was and everything came together well with the addition of the Wholly Guacamole products.

It was hard to decide which Wholly Guacamole products to use but once I made the choice I knew it was the right one. this recipe took 15 minute start to finish!

Wholly Guacamole helps families get dinner on the table faster. The products are always fresh and delicious. There is plenty of variety from plain to spicy. There’s salsas, dips and more. Plenty of products to create interesting meals every night of the week fast.

What I really liked most about the products is that they don’t taste watered down or fake. A lot of times when you purchase avocado products that are packaged they don’t taste right but Wholly Guacamole got it right with their process because you really cannot tell the difference and its like eating a freshly cut avocado right from the tree.

Review – See’s Candies Easter Treat Choices

chocolates

If you are looking for something a little  more gourmet to fill those baskets this year then See’s Candies is it. They have a wonderful selection this year of high quality truffles, chocolates, lollipops as well as some more traditional Easter goodies kids are accustomed to receiving during this holiday.

If you are from the Pacific Northwest then you have heard of See’s Candy and know that they are top notch. They are most known for their enormous selection of high quality truffles and their free samples! They have been around a long time, since the early 1900′s and are still an American company today! They add no preservatives and use only the highest quality ingredients to make their candies and anyone who bites into a See’s Candies truffle will immediately taste the difference. What makes them above the rest is that they use real food products like real butter, chocolate and honey.  They don’t add fake ingredients to their products, if something requires a specific flavoring such as coconut for example, you’re going to find real coconut in it, you won’t run into imitation with Sees Candies.

truffleEven though See’s Candies uses top notch ingredients you won’t pay more to have that quality. Their prices are very reasonable and comparable to boxes of chocolate you would find in a grocery store. So you are paying grocery store prices but you are getting a high quality gourmet product every time.

We received a nice selection of Easter themed products that are sadly sold out online but are probably still available in store since they stock more in their stores during the holidays. You will need to shop right away if you want to get any of their Easter items because they are selling out extremely fast.

basketSees Candies have a great selection of baskets filled with an assortment of their best candies. You can also purchase additional items to add to their baskets to individualize them. Baskets and Easter themed gift assortments range in price from around $8 and up. You can find a Sees Candies by checking their locations here.

To order Easter gifts on their website you can see their inventory here. Definitely check their local locations for more verity.

White Matcha Tea Cookies ‪#‎goodcookcom‬ ‪#‎goodcookkitchenexprt‬

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
When you think of Matcha you think of green tea but Red Leaf Tea company has done something exciting with their Matcha by creating a Matcha using white tea leaves that created a lovely White Matcha Tea that is so good! I did something even cooler with this tea and made some delicious no bake cookies.

We had to get creative with this review. Matcha is worth more then just in a tea cup and I got to thinking why not create something for Easter that the kids would enjoy and still get the health benefits from. If you didn’t know, Matcha tea has many health benefits including

  • High antioxidant count to kill free radicals in the blood stream
  • Reduces the risk of certain types of cancer
  • Decreases fine lines and wrinkles in the skin
  • Helps maintain a beautiful complexion
  • Has only one percent (1%) caffeine content of coffee

But we couldn’t just throw dough in the oven, it had to be more creative then that. Thank goodness I am a Good Cook Kitchen Expert and received a new project challenge! When I received the Sweet Creations Spring Bark Mold along with a Sweet Creations Spring themed Spatula.  I had ideas popping out of my head left and right and I will be using this mold all month long. Make sure to check out all their awesome Sweet Creations spring cookware tools here

 

spring mold

I decided what better idea than to take a traditional no bake cookie recipe and pimp it out some. White Matcha adds a unique flavor that goes great with the spring theme and the Sweet Creations Spring Bark & Chocolate Mold is the perfect tool for such a project.

The mold can be heated up to 470 degree. Is easy to wash. Comes in a pink spring color. Makes 12 squares  that hold a different design in each square. Great for bakes, frozen and chilled desserts. Makes extremely cute hello squares. Retails on Good Cook site for $19.99 save 25% by using promo code SpringFling.

There’s also a matching Hop into Spring Silicone Spatula for 6.79 that completes the spring theme perfectly and is also eligible for the 25% off promo code.
