TIP OF THE DAY: Gourmet Marshmallows Instead Of Peeps For Easter

Marshmallow Peeps are an Easter tradition in many homes. In our childhood we were delighted by them; some people find them iconic.

But over the years they’ve tasted worse and worse to us—artificial flavor, and more texture than flavor at that! Perhaps it’s the carnauba wax.

Sorry, Peeps, we’ve replaced you with all-natural, pillowy soft and incredibly flavorful gourmet marshmallows. If your palate demands the best, buy a marshmallow that tastes out of this world.

Check out our review of gourmet marshmallows and you’ll never look at a marshmallow the same way again.

FOOD HOLIDAY: National Paella Day

Paella is one of the world’s great rice dishes. It was first created in Valencia, a region on the East coast of Spain, and was originally cooked over a fire in the fields as a communal lunch for agricultural workers.

The dish has evolved over the centuries—the original paella had no conventional meat or seafood, but was made with the more affordable snails!

Paella has become a great party dish. Not only do the current ingredients—chorizo, chicken, seafood and other proteins—make it a delicious and fun main course, but it makes a great buffet centerpiece for parties.

Celebrate National Paella Day on March 27th. Enjoy the history of paella and a paella recipe and then plan a party or a large family gathering.
