I recently received a package of yummy cookies from Erin at O’Cookies. Being that they are healthy [no trans fats and organic] I was a little skeptical about the taste…but having sampled the White Chocolate Cranberry Oat and the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat, I’m a total convert. You won’t have to feel guilty about giving these little guys as favors to your guests!
O’Cookies is our original line of decadent healthy treats. Offered in a few varieties of wholesome flavors, O’Cookies prides itself in the fact that all cookies produced are completely organic and low in fat and cholesterol. Oh, yeah, they also have no trans fats, or hydrogenated oils…
Only the highest-quality chocolates and naturally dried fruits are used. Our cookies are made with a whole wheat flour blend for optimal health, unrefined sugars and egg whites only. Very little butter is used along with fruits that keep O’Cookies down in the fat and cholesterol content and only contain “good for you” calories to get you through your day and satisfy that hungering for something sweet.

This Saturday I spent a crazy amount of time eating cake. Why you ask? Because I was invited to the DUMBO loft of husband and wife team Mark Joseph Cakes for a tasting! The tasting for my own wedding cake left a little to be desired, so I was excited to see how it was really done, and Mark and Leslie did not disappoint. Their cakes are amazingly moist, the fillings are absolutely delicious, and the designs are as custom as you want them to be. Everything is made from scratch by Mark himself, so you’re getting exceptional quality for a great price. I got to mix and match many of their flavors, like pound cake with strawberry mousseline and chocolate ganache, or the southern red velvet cake with cream cheese and citrus buttercream [my favorite!!] You’ll be seeing plenty of their designs in bridal magazines over the next few months, so keep an eye out for them!
