Goodfood’s breakfast pastries: pillows of delicous goodness delivered to your door

I received the products in this post in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

Goodfood is a weekly subscription that delivers all of the fresh ingredients you need in pre-measured amounts to make delicious meals at home. (Sarah’s reviewed some of their dinner options over at A Year of Boxes if you’re interested in learning more about those.) They’ve come out with some scrumptious-looking additions to their breakfast line-up since we sampled their smoothies and today I’ve got some thoughts on their breakfast pastries. Short story: they’re oven-ready pillows of delicious goodness that don’t come cheap but you get what you pay for — delectable and generous fillings enveloped in maybe the lightest and flakiest pastry I’ve ever tasted, ready in 20 to 30 minutes and gone in much less. The long story? Right this way. (And actually it’s not that long. A story in pictures more than anything else.)

Inside May’s Sweet Reads Box

I received May’s Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

“I love when my kids tell me they’re bored. As if the lady standing in front of a sink of dirty dishes is where you go to get ideas about how to have a good time.”

Anyone else feel like they’ve never had more dirty dishes in their life? Even with a dishwasher it’s neverending. OMG if we didn’t have a dishwasher! We’ve already had to lay off the pool boy for the summer, but to lose Bernice! 😂😂 Okay we don’t have a pool boy or a Bernice. Or a pool for that matter. What we do have is a mom 🙋‍♀️ (and a dad, but details LOL) who could use a break. My idea of a good time is some quiet with a book, a tea, a treat and some other bookish goodies to feather my nest or just make me smile. So basically May’s Sweet Reads Box.  Continue reading “Inside May’s Sweet Reads Box”

Inside April’s Sweet Reads Box

I received April’s Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

How are you doing? Up and down? Me too. But this weekend was mostly up. We had really nice weather Saturday and it felt great to sit on the front porch with a book and get some sun and fresh air. And yesterday my little guy helped me with some baking, which was super satisfying. There was lots of bickering in between and I didn’t get anything else done but it felt like a bit of a break. Maybe because I was able to carve out more “me time” than during the week. If reading this is part of your “me time” thank you for spending it with me. Today I’ve got April’s Sweet Reads Box aka “me time delivered” aka the Canadian subscription service that delivers a new novel, something to eat and drink and a few treats tied to the story every month. Three-, six- and 12-month subscriptions are available and you can purchase single boxes to gift or try. Let’s see what’s inside this one. Continue reading “Inside April’s Sweet Reads Box”
