Baking Kits and Rodelle Goodies

Silk untitled-33

Rodelle’s Valentine’s Day Giveaway with our friends at Cake In A Crate was a really fun way for us to celebrate our love for quality ingredients and baking delicious treats at home! We were so excited to share that enthusiasm with so many of you online and on our Instagram giveaway!

We selected a grand prize winner and a runner up from our online contest: Emily in York, Pennsylvania will get to try the Chocolate Silk Pies baking kit – one of our favorites because they are some seriously cute and delicious single-serve treats!

We selected one winner from our Instagram contest to try out the Double Fudge Brownie Pie! Congratulations to Anushka in Dallas, Texas!

We had so many wonderful friends on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram reach out and comment, like and share this contest and we are thankful for each and every one of you! Wrapping up this contest has us already plotting our next fun giveaway, so stay tuned for more information on our website in the coming months!

The Not So Perfect Housewife

Double-ChocolateNice-Cream2

A really catchy blog title, and a perfect Rodelle Brand Ambassador! Mikki writes the lifestyle blog, The Not So Perfect Housewife and has some great content! You’ll find healthy recipes for every meal of the day that we can all use in our daily lives. We recommend checking out Mikki’s recipes and staying for the life tips and vacation posts.

Mikki recently shared a couple of recipes with our Organic Baking Cocoa that we are completely smitten with: Double Dark No Bake Cookies and Double Chocolate Nice Cream. Both of Mikki’s latest recipes showcase how important adding quality ingredients to your recipes is. When you use fewer, healthy (and clean) ingredients, each ingredient really impacts the overall flavor of your dish. Double Chocolate Nice Cream is delicious and healthy. Instead of your typical dairy-base ice cream, “Nice Cream” recipes traditionally call for frozen bananas or another frozen fruit to add the substance of the dessert.

Mikki says in her post, “A cocoa powder aficionado I do not consider myself. I have never been particularly picky about my cocoa powders. I didn’t realized that there was really all that different of a taste. That was, until I started cooking with Rodelle’s Baking Cocoa. Oh my! This cocoa powder has such a rich chocolate taste and makes any recipe you add it to just pop with flavor.”

We are so flattered by the high praise from Mikki and hope that you’ll try out her recipe for Double Chocolate Nice Cream or the Double Dark No Bake Cookies – or, better yet, both recipes!

Enjoy the desserts first, life is too short!

Who is Tornadough Alli?

Rugelach1

The question is, who is Tornadough Alli? There are a few ways we can answer this question:

In her words, “Alli is a Midwest mom of 4 amazing kids. Born and raised in Minnesota she grew up a self taught cook, finding her way through the kitchen over the years of trial and error. When shes not baking or cooking she loves movies, shopping, traveling and long romantic walks to the fridge!” We love Alli’s great sense of humor.

One thing we love even more is Alli’s great recipe collection! From sandwiches to desserts and everything in between, Alli has a delightful way of making recipes shine in a way that is approachable to home cooks of all levels. Take her latest cookie, the Rugelach shown here. Rugelach are one of our favorite cookies, but they often times can be intimidating because there are a couple more steps involved than a drop cookie. Alli’s recipe is written carefully and tested to make sure the flavors and steps of the cookie work together to make the baking experience a breeze!

Our most exciting answer to the question posed above, is Alli is our newest Brand Ambassador! We recommend checking out Alli’s blog for family-friendly recipes and show-stopping desserts (like these extra vanilla-y Rugelach)!

You must meet Crystal!

We are so excited to introduce Crystal from Margaritas on the Rocks as our newest Rodelle Brand Ambassador today! Crystal has been using Rodelle for years and we could tell her enthusiasm about our products from the moment she reached out. Crystal wrote to us, “Rodelle is more than just a brand; it’s a product that I not only love but also trust! Its a brand I can depend on in the kitchen time and time again.” – WOW! We love that we can be a small part of Crystal’s kitchen routine, and are so glad that she will be sharing more about how she loves to use Rodelle products. As someone who writes about quality, creative recipes, we couldn’t be happier to align with Crystal!

To kick things off, Crystal made these Southern Red Velvet Brownies – all the Red Velvet flavor you love in a brownie format! We love that this recipe has packed in so much Rodelle flavor in the brownies and the cream cheese frosting! You can read the whole recipe and make up a batch by clicking here, because, sorry, we aren’t sharing these!

And, if Red Velvet isn’t your thing…Crystal’s blog, Margaritas On The Rocks, had us hooked from the very title! Let us tell you that we quickly fell in love with Crystal’s delicious recipes, great energy and creativity. As a lifestyle blog, you’ll find more than just your next favorite food perusing Margaritas On The Rocks.

We hope you’ll check out Crystal’s site and stay for the fabulous desserts. Oh, and get there before Valentine’s Day and enter Crystals’ Rodelle giveaway!
