Angela's Dominican Cake Mix (bizcocho dominicano)

Ronda’s Fine Foods Romesco
I love this versatile tasty dip. It gives me a savory chew from the almonds with a hint of sweetness from the tomato paste and roasted red bell peppers. It finishes with a light spiciness from the chili powder. Use it on pasta sauce and a sandwich. I enjoy eating it on top of Mediterranean baked crackers.

This juicy bratwurst packs flavor with herbs and spices. No need to dowse it with condiments. Use a little mustard or eat it by itself. Cook in the air fryer for a quick and easy meal.
The EPIC Curing's Black Pepper Bacon is also hit with the family. The thick-cut rind gets crispy first when fried and it’s not hard to chew. The black pepper provides a delicate heat. Carnivores rejoice!

TBJ Boar's Reserve Sample Pack
This appetizing sample pack will make a great gift for Father’s Day. Each one contains bits of bacon inside a smooth jam. The maple bourbon reminds me of candied bacon with a splash of alcohol. The honey habanero has layers of sweetness and spice. A piece of brie cheese complements the pungent fig for a delightful bite. I’m a fan of all three.

Vervana For the Love of Pasta Gift Set
I like this gift set. It consists of everything needed to prepare a meatless dinner: two pastas, two sauces and a sample of seasoning. The organic marinara and arrabbiata sauces satisfy my craving for tomato sauce with flavoring. They help cut the bean aftertaste of the red lentil pasta. The Italian seasoning makes a terrific dipping sauce for crusty bread. I sprinkle it over a plate of extra virgin olive oil for some good eats. I use the decorative wooden planter box for garden tools. I did not cook the artichoke risotto, but it combines two of my favorites. Customers get to choose between it or a second pasta.
