Despite the name, this chicken is no jerk. In fact, our new Jerk Chicken Brochettes are skewers of tender free-range chicken breast that’s been marinated in orange and lime juices with fresh thyme, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce. We grill it for you and serve a salsa of fresh mango, papaya, and cucumber on the side. A deliciously cool dish for a hot night.
We’ve also added a new treat to our dessert offerings: the Apricot Crumble Bars are baked with plump, dried apricots and a crunchy topping for an intensely flavorful bar that’s light and chewy, and not too sweet!
If your cravings run more to “the dark side” you’ll love our new Espresso Chocolate Bars. There’s something about the combination of coffee and chocolate that is so right – coffee deepens the cocoa flavor in an amazing way without adding an obvious coffee flavor. It’s chocolate’s silent partner and makes for absolute decadence!
You asked and we’re delivering! Our menus will soon feature freshly baked pies with no sugar added. Whether you’re going low carb or are diabetic, these pies use the all-natural sugar alternative Xylitol — which occurs naturally in most plant material, including many fruits and vegetables. Among its benefits, Xylitol:
- Is low on the glycemic index (so it’s safe for diabetics)
- Inhibits tooth decay
- Has 40% fewer calories and 25% fewer carbs than sugar
Wine and cheese? How about wine and cheese coins! We’re positively salivating over this month’s free gift — Savory 3 Cheese Handmade Cheese Coins from Rustic Bakery. Made with Cowgirl Creamery Wagon Wheel, sharp cheddar, parmesan, and chili, these bite-sized snacks are melt-in-your-mouth good. They’re the perfect light hors d’oeuvre to accompany a glass of wine. Available while supplies last with qualifying order.
Don't bring naked fruit to your next party. Consider “dressing” it with a refreshing poppyseed vinaigrette. Get the recipe – and a few other summer salad ideas – from Jessie’s latest blog post.
Speaking of fresh summer fruits, Jessie brought this easy and delicious fruit popsicle recipe back from Cartagena, Colombia, where it is a very common afternoon treat. The fruit combination can be anything – just use your imagination!

Behind the scenes (the website, that is) we’ve begun making changes to streamline the ordering process. You provided valuable feedback during our April client survey, and as a result, we’ve made quite a few changes. We’re also working to further clarify serving sizes and portions. So thanks for taking the time to tell us how we can make your life even easier.
