We’ve been quiet because the first few weeks…and last two really, who am I kidding…of December are crazy! We attend a lot of shows and boutiques and spend a lot of time heads down over vast pots of sweets and jams.
So where are we this weekend? The SLC Dickens Festival! This is happening at the South Town Expo Center in Sandy, Utah, December 11 – that’s tomorrow – through December 14th. They do charge for this event, but there are a bunch of coupons in various papers and online to get half off and (drumroll please) from 10-11 tomorrow morning admission is absolutely free. So come on by and visit us. We’ll be in booth 31, not so far into the maze of shops.
There will be live reindeer at the event, roasted chestnuts, vendors, plays, carolers, dancers and a very jolly special guest in the form of Father Christmas himself. It’s a great event and we look forward to seeing you there. Come spend the day in Merry Olde London, you’ll be glad you did.
Wow it was a busy weekend. We attended the SLC Gluten Free Expo this last Saturday and it was great to see so many of you there! We really enjoy going to the shows where we can talk to folks face to face, particularly when we’re helping to provide solutions to special diet needs. Food is so important and it’s just no fun when you feel like you can’t eat anything you really enjoy!
So thank you to everyone who came out and we hope to see you again next year.
In celebration of the Gluten Free fair we’ll share the recipe for our favorite cream soup mix here, and we’re have a special free shipping code which is good through the end of November. It’s a good time to get your gluten free products, and start stocking up for Christmas. So to use this you trundle over to the Cornaby’s Shopping Cart. Select your products and at the end it’ll have a box for coupons: ShipMeGlutenFree will give you free shipping on any order over $50.00. How cool is that?
Anyway…here’s the recipe for an easy cream sauce base that can be used in recipes or eaten all by itself!
Ultra Gel Cream Soup Mix
⅔ c. instant non-fat dry milk
2 t. chicken base or chicken bouillon
¼ c. Thick Gel or ⅓ – ½ c. Ultra Gel
½ t. onion powder
½ t. garlic powder
½ t. salt
Combine all ingredients in a resealable sandwich bag. Seal, label, date and store in tightly covered container. Shelf stable for up to one month, refrigerator stable for up to six months.
Yield: one packet
*Note: Since this mix doesn’t settle out so it can be made in bulk and used as needed.
We may live without poetry, music and art.
We may live without conscience , and live without heart;
We may live without friends, we may live without books;
But the civilized man cannot live without cooks.
He may live without books – what is knowledge but grieving?
He may live without hope – what is hope but deceiving?
He may live without love – what is passion but pining?
But where is the man that can live without dining?
Just a quick drive by post as we’re happily spending our Labor Day making ribs and enjoying some family time. There was laboring this morning too which lead to curtains in the right place and a bunch of dishes done, YAY.
Anyway…as you head into your grill-a-thon remember that Cornaby’s Cookine Sauces, like Raspberry Jalapeno, Raspberry Chipotle and Peach Habenero are the awesome on ribs, steaks, chicken, fish and even as a vinaigrette base for a salad. This has been a shameless plug and now we’re off to eat!
Have a great holiday!
So our newest arrival is a little over six weeks old….
This is how I feel most of the time…
This means I’m working harder at planning meals ahead as my days are a little unpredictable and my nights even more so.
So, dear reader, what are some of your favorite go to meals which should go into my rotation? Anything you just can’t live without?
Two weeks into this new mom thing stuff is going pretty well…if you don’t count the vast loss of sleep. I figure I’ll sleep when I’m dead…or at least when all the kids are off at college. I used to wonder how my Grandmother could doze off all the time, but now I understand that she’s just making up for when her children were young. 🙂
Anyway…posting around here should get back to something more regular soon, but in the meantime I thought I’d share a picture of the new arrival’s first time in the kitchen. She’s helping Daddy Bunneh make Red Beans and Rice for a party with friends. We figure it will still be several years before she can do the stirring herself, but it’s a good place to start isn’t it?
One of the coolest thing about being a food blogger and in the foodie community all together is the people that you meet. It doesn’t hurt when they love your products too, but that’s really neither here nor there. 🙂
Recently we met Debbie Iverson who is a delightful woman who blogs over at Can’t Be Me. She has some great recipes including some really yummy pie recipes, most of which she makes in her BlendTec mixer. I personally don’t have a BlendTec, but I have a great love for their ‘Will it Blend‘ campaign. This week she was a visitor over at Fresh Living on KUTV 2 and shared some of her pie recipes for Pi day and shows a great pie base using Thick Gel and whipping cream with Ultra Gel. (Yeah, I should have posted this last week for Pi day, but as the mama of a less than 2 week old baby I’m lucky to post anything any when. One day our little gazelle is going to sleep at night instead of all day.)
So go visit Debbie and make pies! With Easter coming up a nice coconut cream pie sounds like a wonderful dessert to follow the ham and potatoes!
