What’s new in the food subscription service? Mary’s Secret Ingredients and it is time to enjoy the Mary’s secret ingredients(MSI) summer culinary surprise box. I am all about putting the ‘ease’ into easy during my summer break with my family so looking for items that are healthy, tasty and easy to use are a must of lavish living right? On those nights that we have been sitting poolside all day long and allowed the sun to soak in a bit too much creating heat and sun exhaustion, I need dinner prep that will be easy, and delicious. My one large challenge when cooking is that my daughter is Gluten Free and it often impedes what I might prepare as 4/5 don’t want to eat the foods she eats, but it’s Mary’s secret ingredients to the rescue this month! This was a surprise to find a box this month that was all Gluten Free, but all hail Mary’s secret ingredients for this one! Here’s the secret you need to know about my indulgent style after a warm day – I now have found a subscription box that is new to the marketplace, that touts, wonderful secret ingredients that will have you cooking up without being cooked and you won’t be stumped as to what to provide to those in your home that abstain from gluten on a regular basis this month because the box is Gluten FREE! I lavishly live life out loud and this box of culinary bliss offers you premium, unusual, artisan, trending items that you may never have tried unless the box presents itself and it’s out!
First things first, you need to know that each box offers a limited edition of culinary surprises that offer artisan and gourmet products. Each season will host a limited number of theme boxes and these will have surprises in them to tickle the fancy of every cook, not to mention delivered right to your front door! If you have no inspiration even after receiving the package(not possible) you can check out Love- the secret ingredient blog to help you along in your pursuit of ease in the kitchen world.

My first Mary’s secret ingredient box exposed
My box came in the mail and it was marked Fragile. You bet it is fragile as inside there is culinary bliss awaiting my taste-testing and cooking skills. Open the lid and find a divine spread of premium items making it possible to snack, cook and prepare with ease. As my daughter peeled away the lovely blue and white tissue, she was doing a happy Gluten Free dance when she saw all the items inside.
Beverage to quench thy thirst: Bruce Cost Ginger Ale Unfiltered. Served on the rocks in a champagne glass and added just a slice of orange rind to make my daughter thrilled. Different than the average ale, as it is made with fresh ginger and pure cane sugar, but delicious and refreshing and crisp over ice!
A quick fix for food prep in the toaster oven from Chef’s Planet – The ongoing battle of who spilled in the toaster oven is one perpetuated no more, as this little tool makes the battle stop and keeps the drips and crumbs lined up(lol). Nonstick and wipes easily while made in the USA(woot woot)
Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper and that is not for salad, rather this was munching and crunching which is what my daughter did all the way to the bottom of the snack bag. JAXN’S twice-baked potato stix provided her a snack that gave new life to potatoes! Can I get a “CRUNCH?”
Clean, Lean and Sexy and that is not me describing my bathing suit stature(lol) that is what a Coconut Cashew All Natural Whole Food Energy Bar is. Thanks to Suzie Carpenter, there are great-tasting whole foods with energy in them and this one packs a punch of coconut bliss.
How easy is that? Right?
Let’s talk fire roasted peppers and tomatillos because this little jar of zest will add a sweet boost to your life. My daughter had to try it out over chicken and her comment,”divine!”. I simply grilled a piece of chicken, as it was cooling I placed a spoonful of the Zukali Mexican Gourmet on top and then a piece of cheese and it created a mexican fiesta for her mouth.
