1. La Tourangelle Basil Oil, La Tourangelle Avocado Oil, La Tourangelle Herbs de Provence Oil, La Tourangelle Garlic Oil
These cooking oils are a MUST-HAVE! I’ve used them in several of my recipes including pizza, pasta dishes, and the recipe that I’m sharing with you today!
2. Gustus Vitae, Gourmet Seasonings Taste of Jamaica, Gustus Vitae, Gourmet Seasonings Taste of Morocco
I love trying out new flavors and these seasoning did not disappoint! They both taste great on chicken, beef, or fish!
3. St. Dalfour, Royal Fig, Fruit Spread
In addition to tasting delicious on toast and biscuits, this Royal Fig Fruit Spread makes a great vinaigrette! I used this in the recipe below!
4. Artisana, Tahini, Sesame Seed Butter
This is a staple food item for any foodie! It pairs well with sweet and savory ingredients!
5. 4th & Heart Ghee Butter, 4th & Heart Chocti Chocolate Ghee Spread
If you haven’t tried ghee yet, you’re missing out on a real treat! I love using it for my stir-fry recipes because it has a fairly high smoke point! I can’t wait to try out the Chocolate Ghee Spread! Yum!
6. Wholesome Sweeteners, Inc., Organic, Spreadable Raw Unfiltered Honey
There’s nothing like the taste of unfiltered honey! The taste is so pure and authentic! You have to give this a try!
7. Laird Superfood, Organic Peruvian Coffee, Medium Roast, Ground
As a serious coffee drinker, this coffee has an incredible, bold taste! It’s just what you need to help get your day started off right!
8. Frontier Co-Op Organic Non-Alcoholic Mint Flavor, Frontier Co-Op Organic Non-Alcoholic Maple Flavor
If you love to bake, then you will love these flavorings! Since they are non-alcoholic, they do not have a bitter or unpleasant aftertaste! The Mint and Maple flavors are my favorite!
9. Simply Organic Adobo Seasoning, Simply Organic Garam Masala
Like most foodies, I enjoy bold flavors! A couple of seasonings that I keep in my spice rack are the Simply Organic, Adobo Seasoning and Garam Masala seasonings!

10. Simply Organic, Pre-Brew Coffee Spices, Chai Spices
This takes your average cup of coffee to the next level! It adds the perfect amount of spice, making it a delicious cup of goodness!

As you can see, these products are a foodie’s dream! I even created the most delicious Fig Basil Vinaigrette Dressing from a couple of my favorite products, the Royal Fig Spread and the La Tourangelle Basil Oil! It paired perfectly with my Pear Pomegranate & Pecan Salad! Check out the recipe below and don’t forget to click HERE to receive a discount off your order!
