Gourmet Marshmallows in the news~

Well, it's official. Gourmet marshmallows are the next cupcake. Or at least that is what has been said recently in the New York Times. And now, you can read all about this food trend  making it to Canada in Maclean's magazine.

I was delighted to be asked for an interview about my little marshmallow business. And I am excited to see such a beautifully written article on this, my very favorite subject. (a big thanks to Rosemary Counter for including me. And please check out her website- she is my kind of gal).

On a personal note, my Dad has a subscription to the magazine so he was very excited that it would be in the mail for him. It is certainly a lot of fun for me to be included in such sweet company. I would like to thank everyone who has supported me along the way- I am truly grateful.

Canada Day Giveaway~

I am very proud to be Canadian. This year, on Canada Day, I am celebrating by going camping with my family. Many Canadians go camping on our holiday long weekend and it gets very busy on the roads and in campsites as Canadians enjoy summertime, family, friends, and food.

Food is one of my favorite parts of camping. No beans and hot dogs here. My goal is always to make the most gourmet, comforting meals with the provisions of a two burner Coleman stove, a fire, and good planning.

S'mores (of course) are always on the menu. A fun activity and creative treat for the kids, we get really into building perfect s'mores. Made with homemade graham crackers, high quality dark chocolate, and my gourmet marshmallows, the s'more has grown up quite a bit since the days of the Kraft jet-puffed marshmallow (which I never liked, even as a kid). We also add fun things like fruit and different kinds of cookies. Chocolate chip s'mores anyone? Or how about a Maple Bacon s'more?

So to celebrate this amazing holiday and my love of s'mores I am giving away a S'mores for Four kit to one of my fans!

The S'mores for Four kit includes 8 handmade graham crackers smothered in dark chocolate and 4 large roasting marshmallows in one of my seasonal flavors.

To enter your name in the giveaway, please visit my Facebook page and comment, post or share- answering the question, Why do you love s'mores?

The giveaway will be drawn randomly on Wednesday, June 20th and the winner will be announced on my Facebook page. Enjoy!
