Happy Monday! How was your weekend? It was supposed to rain here but it ended up being the most beautiful weekend! It felt like summer and ever since that’s happened I’ve felt like an entirely new person, soaking up as many happy sunbeams as I can. We hung out with friends, cooked, went out to eat (food is always a theme on the weekends), visited the garden shop (more on that soon!), and I was more than happy to finally “summerize” our apartment and put away all sweaters, blankets, extra layers, etc. It felt so good! Summer is on the way.
Speaking of food, I’m excited to share a giveaway with you this week! This one’s for the foodies. I recently discovered Eat Boutique and had to share more. Eat Boutique is not only a food blog and brand (“food that hugs you back”), but it’s also a shop that discovers the best small batch foods by boutique food makers. They craft seasonal, regional gift and tasting boxes for food fans, and sell individual items for home cooks. Let’s just say I was intrigued as this is right up our alley.
Nick and I were received the Cooks Gift Box in the mail and have been overjoyed with our new goodies. I love everything from the packaging and presentation to the high quality small batch foods. It’s been fun to incorporate these new gourmet flavors into everyday cooking! Our box included Jacobsen vanilla sea salt (we added a pinch to French toast), Antelope Creek Farm raspberry dressing (delicious in salad dressings), Just Cook herbed coffee rub, Empire white truffle mayonnaise, and Tonewood maple cream. We also received a copy of Edible Boston (I’m obsessed with the cover photo, below) and the genius Cuppow, which turns a mason jar into a travel mug! So fun, right? Our new products feel a bit decadent and gourmet, yet I love knowing that they were made out of love by small batch boutique food makers.
I love supporting small batch food artisans and am so grateful that Eat Boutique would like to share a Cooks Gift Box with one lucky reader!
