Darling Delights

Standard

How scrumptious do these cookies look? Sugar cookies are by far one of my favorite sweet treats, but I’ve never found a bakery or company that makes these quite as delicious as Darling Delights! They are the perfect option for getting locally made cookies, cupcakes, cakes and other desserts made. Not only are they incredibly soft and delicious but they are creative and will make your event stand out with custom designs and fun shapes!

Vanessa is from Langley and makes absolutely stunning cakes too, perfect for a birthday, wedding or baby shower, engagement party, company party and even wedding! Seriously, check out the marbled buttercream cake she created, it’s impressive! Looking for some cute cupcakes for your kids upcoming birthday? Check out her Peppa Pig post! Too cute! For the cookies, they are my fav and so make options! From holidays to special events, company logos and more! Send Vanessa a DM to find out more and place your order!

The Alabama Pecan Company

Standard

Are you pecan obsessed? I don’t know about you but pecan rolls, pralines and pecan pie are some of my fav sweets. Oh and I love crushed pecans in my salad! Mmm yum! Not to mention they are super healthy! Packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants! Luckily there’s The Alabama Pecan Company to get me through my pecan fix!

They specialize in all things pecans, from 100% natural pecan oil for cooking, to pecan meal for baking. They have whole, halved, and pieces, or get them still in the nut and purchase a nut cracker to open them yourself! My fav would be all the coated pecans, from candied, orange, honey crunch, hickory smoked, yogurt coated, you name it, they have it! They have pecan seasoning, pecan butter, candles, brittles, tarts, pies… oh man, are you drooling yet? They even have pecan coffee freshly roasted in Auburn!

I would suggest getting one of their pre-made gift baskets full of the favourites. It’s a great gift idea for the nut obsessed! They offer free shipping for order in the US but they ship internationally as well! Order here;

Looking to try some local cider? Check out Merridale Cidery & Distillery from Cowichan on the Island! I’m loving their all natural, farm crafted ciders made with 100% apple juice from cider apples on their own farm, all naturally fermented!

The Jalisco is my favorite, super crisp and easy drinking on a warm day!
