As bloggers, we are constantly cooking of course, but what most people don't realize, is that we're constantly transporting food too! We might do a lot of our cooking together, but a lot of the recipe testing happens in our own homes. Which means, at some point the food has to be taken to be tasted and photographed.
This might not sound like big deal, but believe us, after you've spilled food all over your car enough times, finding a secure way to transport it becomes imperative. After trying many (many) brands, we came across the Rubbermaid TakeAlongs. They are microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe (so we can reuse them as many times as we need to) and their flexible lids grip the container tightly for a great seal, with an easy to grab and open pull tab (no more broken nails!). The Quik Clik Seal™ technology which keeps food secure and helps prevent spills in transport (no more stained car mats!)
We found the largest variety of Rubbermaid TakeAlongs at Walmart, including the Holiday line, featuring holiday colors and prints, which is exactly what we were looking for. Every year since we started the blog, we send a variety of sweet (very delicate) treats to our business partners around the Holidays. With the great selection of shapes and sizes ( Rectangle, Deep Square, Serving Bowl, Serving Rectangle, Rectangle, and the Deviled Egg Tray), the Holiday Rubbermaid TakeAlongs are the perfect (and fashionable) way to ensure our goodies arrive to their destination intact. Now you can save $1.00 on any 2 Rubbermaid TakeAlong products get the offer here. No time to go to the store make sure you check out the wide variety of Rubbermaid TakeAlongs products at Walmart.
One of our favorite treats to send out are these vegan cranberry pecan cookies. This recipe was inspired by the vegan chocolate chip cookie we found in the cookbook Ovenly. Made with whole wheat pastry flour and coconut sugar, these cookies have just the right amount of sweetness and are a more sensible way to indulge this holiday season.
