By now we all know each other pretty well. We all love healthy food and we celebrate it each and every day. Sometimes treats need to happen. Tate’s Bake Shop recently contacted me and wanted to share their gluten free gift basket with me and you. My folks have been visiting from NY and this basket came just in time. Besides they have walked by this bakery on many occasions in South Hampton NY but have never tried it.

The goodies in this basket have been tested the past week by my folks, kids and hubs. Multiple times…

With the holidays quickly approaching it is nice to have something to put out when you are in a pinch for time. I bake often….but sometimes I am caught off guard with no homemade treats on hand.

Being a gracious host, I want everyone to be happy. These gluten free chocolate chip cookies and dense, fudge brownies from Tate’s made everyone here happy.

And look. Tate’s Bake Shop even sent me their signature cookbook. Out of the kindness in their hearts. I did not even ask for it. A perfect addition to my busting at the seams fabulous cookbook collection. A girl can never have enough shoes or cookbooks. For me the ultimate shoe collection includes cowboy boots in every color of the rainbow.

Park City Utah Burns Saddley boot store

A while back I admired these $2499.95 Lucchese cowboy boots from Burn’s Saddlery in Park City, Utah. I need these. That 5 cents shy of $2500.00 really makes them a bargain. Don’t ya think?! Here is a close up…

A girl can dream. Thanks for letting me digress to cowboy boots. That is the way my mind works. I cannot stay on one subject for very long at all…the boots are just a figment of my imagination.

Apparently they will not happen in this lifetime. Back to cookies, brownies and cookbooks!

Stack of gluten free chocolate chip cookies on Family Fresh Cooking blog

Above is a pretty little cookie stack. What you don’t see are the two sets of little hands that were reaching in to try and grab some from the right side. As if cookies and brownies aren’t enough of a temptation. When mommy puts them on pretty little plates with dainty cups of milk they become even more fascinating.

Right after this photo was taken they had to taste taste. Again.

Marla, we love Tate’s in the house! My 7 yr old who’s gluten-free has a stash of them in his classroom for parties — for when everyone else is eating the gluten-FULL stuff! His favorite are the chocolate chip. And of all the store bought GF cookies, I definitely think these are the best and don’t taste like they’re missing anything! :-)

Hi Marla!
My favorite baked treat would be chocolate croissants- hands down! I’ve had some of the best while traveling in France, and they are wonderful- enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee, sitting in a cute little cafe.

Reply

28 Marla November 2, 2011 at 5:51 am

Melissa, back when I live in NYC I had chocolate croissants like all the time. There are so many awesome bakeries there. Here in So Cal not so much….
My kids love them too. I have never had on in France. That would be true bliss!

Do I spy Cath Kidston wares in these photos?! I LOVE her stuff to pieces. My whole house would be full of it if I could afford it. I was lucky enough to find a mug at the thrift store for just a dollar and drink my cocoa from it every morning. Love seeing them here. =)

Reply

32 Marla November 2, 2011 at 5:58 am

Clair…I am a Kath Kidston addict. They just started shipping to the USA & now I am in BIG trouble! I want like everything. You will be seeing her stuff often in my photos. Maybe so often that you will tire of it. OK maybe not ;) I bet that mug makes your cocoa that much better!

Reply

33 Clair November 3, 2011 at 5:37 am

Yesss…can’t wait for the inspiration! And maybe I’ll just have to request a few pieces for Christmas. ;-)

And you’re right…eating anything off a pretty dish makes it taste way better!

I got to experience my first Tates cookie this past summer, and my life has not been the same. Living on the West Coast has created a considerable amount of distance from my so-called new idea of heaven. Guess my waist is thanking me though. I would have to say that the classic Chocolate Chip would be my go to…with a side of milk!

I tried your pretzel banana bars earlier this year and I loved them! So I made a batch for my brother who lives in D.C. for his birthday. They were supposed to get there within about 3 days, and I was sure they would stay good until then! Well… to make a long story short, they never got to my brother and the package got returned to my house in about 3-4 weeks. Needless to say, those bars got pitched immediately!

I plan on making your avocado scones. Just need to wait for an avocado to ripen. It’s a bit of a science since they go bad so quickly.

Reply

159 Marla November 3, 2011 at 5:55 am

Kim, keep your avocado out on the counter at room temperature until ripe. If you feel that it is about to over ripen put it in the fridge. That will slow down the ripening BIG time :) Let me know if you bake up those scones. They are awesome!
