Caramelized Sugarmiks – Assorted Toffees, Assorted Éclairs, Dairy Fudges

  • Sugarmilks are caramelized with the perfect blend of milk, sugar, heat and time to create a rich and creamy tasting candy.

Handmade Batch Taffies – Butt’r Mints and Fruit Taffy

  • Each piece is folded and slab cut by hand, one batch at a time, creating a chew reminiscent of the original Atlantic City salt water taffy.

Smooth Cooked Hard Candies – Glitter Mints, Butt’r Creams and Menthol Eucalyptus

  • Ingredients are cooked in a thin layer to create traditionally smooth candies, soft to the tongue and dense with flavour.

Double Crafted Centre Fills – Assorted Crunches and Soft-Centered Fruits

  • The crunchy hard shell and smooth creamy centre are crafted then combined to create the perfect taste.

Sugardust Sweets – Scotch Mints

  • These traditional mints are pressed, poured or panned to create a packed powder candy that dissolves on the tongue and coats the mouth with sweetness. *Sugardust Sweets are not kosher.

My favorite cookbook is by Chef Michael Smith – The Best of Chef at Home. So many great, delicious, healthy recipes that I’ve enjoyed sharing with family time and time again. I like his simplicity, and that I’ve had most of the ingredients of his recipes on hand in my cupboard, which makes using his cookbook enjoyable. I rarely have to go out and buy a bunch of groceries before making a recipe, which is a plus!

My favorite cookbook is whatever Nigella Lawson book I am reading at the time – right now it is “Nigella Kitchen.” Her recipes are easy and delicious.

My favorite cookbook is “How to Cook Everything Vegetarian: Simple Meatless Recipes for Great Food” by Mark Bittman. It has the simple, everyday recipes.
I’m not vegetarian, but trying to cook 3-4 times a week meatless dishes. This is exactly the cookbook I’ve been trying to find for a long time.
Mark Bittman is not trying to substitute meat, but rather suggest simple vegetarian dishes. So, you can be flexible and cook up you meat along side.
The only one problem – the book is huge…

My favorite cookbook is River Roads Recipes first published in the 1050′s by the Baton Rouge Junior League.

What is my favorite cookbook….that is a hard one. I would have to say my all time favorite one is my Taste of Home Christmas cookbooks. I have one of those cookbooks that my Mother-in-law picked up at a Church sell 30 years ago but all my favorite recipes are now missing otherwise I would have picked that one.

My favorite cookbook is “The Roasted Vegetable” by Andrea Chesman. It introduced me to roasting vegetables – such an easy way to quickly develop deep, rich flavors – and has introduced me to new vegetables to boot.

I love anything by Rachel Ray. She is so simple yet elegant


19 Kerry McDougall

My favorite cookbook is The Barefoot Contessa. The first cookbook she wrote is an excellent reference that I use time and again. I have all of her cookbooks, but the first one is the one I return to most often.

My favorite cookbook is ” 1001 Cookie Recipes ” by Gregg R. Gillespie.

It has so many cookie recipes that you can make for holidays to give to friends and neighbors. And to make for everyday to eat.
