I met up with the makers of Whimsy & Spice at a holiday fair at Christmas, and have no idea how I forgot to write about them! [thank goodness for Etsy!] Whimsy & Spice is a delicious company out of Brooklyn that makes sweets all with a dash of spice…chocolate gingersnaps, cardamom marshmallows….they’re all dee-lish, and you can work with them to create favors for your guests, or pop a few cookies into OOT bags. Your guests will love you.

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.

Last week I was invited to the Martha Stewart show for a special episode on weddings…and lucky me, the day before the episode I received one of these adorable little valentines in the mail from Darcy! They can be perfectly personalized as favors, and Darcy and Martha showed how easy they were to make on the show. In case you missed it, the directions are on Darcy’s blog, and since I didn’t have my good camera on me, check out WeddingBee’s photos from the show.
