Treats for Mom that are ready when she wants them

Today is Mother’s Day, and if you didn’t already have something prepared for Mom to wake up to this morning, this newsletter is for you. Today, I’m writing about the best gift you can give Mom: some peace and quiet — and maybe a really good Bloody Mary (my mom’s favorite). But if you don’t have a jug of tomato juice hmomanging around this morning for that, you can still make Mom a treat she’ll like. Particularly fitting for this situation is the genre of baked goods that don’t need to be eaten warm but can sit around and let

Food review: Ready to party with taco treats

There appears to be an error on the webpage. It’s almost as delicious as the food that’s delivered to the door.

On Club Mexicana’s Megabox Taco Kit it describes a stack of food that is basically a party, rather than a dinner. And above all of that, it promises this: 100% vegan – 100% delicious! I’ve cut and copied that from their website, just to make sure.
