Product Recommendation- CJ's Mini Wontons

They had a sample of these delicious Chicken and Cilantro Mini Wantons at my local Costco and I was ecstatic to find that they were a safe food.  It comes in a large bag that has about 120 one inch potstickers for about $13 bucks. They are cute, and ity bity, and delicious as can be.  Somewhat reminiscent of a Vietnamese spring roll.
Looking at their website, I hope to taste other flavors in the future!

Asian Plum Marinade

This is good for beef, pork, chicken, seafood, or tofu. Makes enough for 2 lbs of meat.  Here it is shown with  ribeye steak that was sliced after grilling.

Soy sauce can be a problem for some people.  Check the ingredients to make sure there is no miso or fermented ingredients listed. You can also substitute the soy sauce with 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce and 1/2 tablespoon of water.

Mini Deep Dish Apple Pies

This makes 6 mini pies but can easily be doubled to make a full tray. You can use excess scraps of the dough to create cute decorations for the top of the pies if you are feeling creative.  Be sure to peel the apples thoroughly and rinse them as the skin has quite a bit of yeast.

Product Recommendation- Handi-Snacks

Yay! Another pretzel product!

I love pretzels, I love cheese, I love dipping things- this is a perfect snack for me.  They are great to shove into your purse, or bag, or stash in your drawer at work, if you have a job, of course.  I got the Oreo and pretzel kinds, but I do believe the cracker version is safe too.  These make me really happy!

Honey Mustard Chicken Salad

This would be great on a bed of  butter lettuce with bacon crumbled over.  Using mustard powder avoids the issue of prepared mustard that contains vinegar, which can have traces of yeast, or wine. Here it is pictured on a puff pastry roll.

Product Recommendation- Haagen Dazs Raspberry Sorbet

Haagen Dazs Rasberry sorbet is a great dairy-free sweet treat.  It comes in little single serves for about a dollar.  They are quite convenient when you don't want to clean a bowl, or a spoon, or eat directly out of the big carton because it makes you feel like there might be something emotionally wrong with you.  I like it a lot, and it causes no ill effects.
