Favorite Goodies

May 5, 2010
1.  Silk Pure Almond Milk

It's my favorite beverage on earth to drink.  I switched from regular milk and haven't looked back.  I usually buy the unsweetened version, but they're both yummy.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner, a full glass is beside my plate!   I cook with it, I drink it and my refrigerator always has at least two cartons.  I can't imagine myself without!

2.  Barney Butter Crunchy Almond Butter

I've been a peanut butter addict for as long as I can remember.  I love most all nut butters, but almond butter has a special place in my heart.  This is the best almond butter brand I've tried.  It's smooth and creamy consistency is sometimes hard to find in an almond butter.  This stuff is legit.

This gluten-free goodness is a gift from God. It's a staple in my cabinet and I can be found eating it for its intended breakfast consumption, or weird things like using it in my cooking and baking!

As the name not-so-subtly-suggests, this device is magic. I use it most everyday for my breakfast smoothies, and making soups and purees. The possibilities are endless and the cleanup and convenience are its best features.

First of I tip my hat to your number one goody; Silk almond milk is fantastic, one glass and I was hooked. I get so excited when I experiment and find not only is it a great drink but can be used as a substitute for milk in cooking too! Sorry for gushing I just think its the coolest thing, more calcium, less fat and tastes great, what's not to love? I'm also glad you listed the magic bullet. I've had my eye on one of these bad boys for a while but have been sceptical ever since I saw them advertised on tv. As soon as I see those half hour long infomercials at 3am I automatically think, what's the catch. Or, if they need this long ass commercial with an intolerably perky actor chopping like their life depends on it to sell these things, it must be lousy. Maybe I'll give it a go.

Thanks CookingKate! Almond milk is part of my life everyday. It's the best! I'm glad you agree. With regard to the magic bullet-- I know it seems to be sort of sketchy with the infomercial-type ads like they're hiding some catch... BUT it's amazing. I literally use it everyday. You mix/blend in cups that you can drink from (so it saves extra dishes) and you can throw it all in the dishwasher. It's such a life-saver! :) I want to get everyone I know one as a gift!
