We are looking at food this week. Of course when are we NOT looking at yummy tempting treats. This week we are giving into temptation of the tummy kind. So grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy some special treats!

1. When I saw this shop I immediately thought of a friend of mine who has all kinds of food allergies. VeganHoney offers amazing baked treats that uses no animal by-products including dairy, eggs or honey in any of their goodies. To make you feel less guilty about eating such delectable treats, five percent of all Vegan Honey sales go to various animal advocacy, environmental and social justice organizations!

Take a look at the pecan sticky bun! It is covered with pecans and topped in a buttery brown sugar glaze. Gooey goodness awaits!!

2.The sweet spot is just that!! A shop that will fulfill your chocolate desire. There are lots of items to choose from. When I saw the Chocolate Bliss Brownie Bites I thought of my husband. He loves brownies and when they are covered in chocolate it is even better.

These brownies are made from Ghirardelli chocolate and coated with scrumptious Ghirardelli milk chocolate. I think I just drooled on the keyboard!!!!

3.Anyone who knows me knows that I love to make bread. I may like to make it, but these folks have perfected the art of bread making. The folks at GourmetBread have AMAZING looking breads. I can almost smell the freshness.

This is a picture of their garlic and herb bread. This bread looks wonderful for the warmer months ahead. With sandwiches, spreads, or part of a picnic, this bread would be fantastic! Be sure to check out their other flavors!

4. This little shop called Pitseel is getting rave reviews on their vegan foods. Her shop is earth friendly, animal friendly, plant friendly! How can you not feel good about what you eat coming from her!! So I think the most fun item is the Mix it up. You get 4 POUNDS of vegan food.

Choose from burgers, tips, ribs, wings and other items not yet listed like Vegan Pesto Meatless Balls glazed with aged Balsamic Vinegar, Organic Vegan Multicolored Popcorn Balls, Organic Goji Trail Mix, Vegan Parmesan, the list goes on and on. If you feel adventurous or can't seem to make up your mind, have them pick it out for you! Yummy!

5. My son thinks these cookies look so fun and yummy! Made by Ulljas European Bakery, these Italian kiss cookies are sure to be a hit for any occasion! (or no occasion at all!) These are a bestselling cookie and here is why.....

"The ice cream scoop look-a-like shortbread cookies are made with pure vanilla...they are then dipped in premium European white chocolate and decorated with various colors of milk chocolate M&Ms." What I love (besides the fact they look delicious) is that all the ingredients are familiar to me. The ingredients used are white unbleached flour, granulated white sugar, baking powder, baking soda, organic butter, and eggs. There are no preservatives or additives in these cookies, so go ahead and have a couple!!!!

Thanks so much and have a great weekend!!!
