There are times when something is so good, you really don’t have to say very much. This is L’ancetre Salted Butter. Now, in the past I’ve reviewed a number of L’ancetre products and this one is long overdue. The company already has a good reputation in my books so when I finally got around to testing the L’ancetre Salted Butter, I was pretty sure it would soar with flying colours and of course, I wasn’t wrong.

I mean, how can you go wrong with butter? Sure, butter isn’t something you want to eat gallons of but just a little can go a long way especially if you’ve got a good quality one. That’s where L’ancetre Salted Butter comes in handy.

It’s back to work and it’s back to a more typical review here on ThingsThatWeDo.com. Remember, I’m going to try and keep that right brain of mine nice and calm because quite frankly, I’ve had enough of it.

So, let’s talk about this PC Caramelized Vidalia Onion hummus that I recently picked up. I haven’t done a review on any dips or spreads lately so I figured this would be a good one to test out. Lately Loblaws has come out with a variety of different dips and spreads but I really haven’t had much time to try them out until now.

A while back I did a review on the Wan Ja Shan Organic Tamari which was a pretty good substitute for the typical soya sauce. Made with only 3 basic ingredients, In quite liked the Wan Ja Shan Organic Tamari. At that time, I said I’d do a little browsing at my local grocery store just to see how other soy type sauces stack up. Do they use only 3 ingredients?

Curious!

A long time ago, I had been given a number of L’Ancetre products to test out and sample. With a special thanks from the lovely folks at L’Ancetre, I’ve finally managed to review their Organic Unsalted Butter. It’s taken me a while what with all the reviews I’ve had lined up but you know, better late than never and I’ll cut right to the final word: if you want good butter, you need to have some L’Ancetre Organic Unsalted Butter.

There is something seriously unspeakably simple and delicious about the L’Ancetre Organic Unsalted Butter. Okay, that’s not fair. My stomach just growled when I typed that. This is one reason why I should not type these reviews at night!

I don’t know how Loblaws does it but I have to give them credit for coming up with new products. A recent trip to my local Loblaws revealed a bunch of new dips and spreads including this PC Ginger and Wasabi hummus. I can safely say this is the first hummus dip I’ve ever seen with ginger and wasabi in it. Talk about fusion! I’m intrigued, I’m curious, and I want to know if the PC Ginger and Wasabi hummus is a total winner or a complete flop.

Really, ginger and wasabi with chickpeas? This hummus dip is so new, I visited their website and it’s not even on the site yet!

Back on November 9, 2012, I did a review on the Sunflower Kitchen Jerusalem Hummus dip. At that time, I loved it and couldn’t get enough of it. Since then, I’ve written another 100 or so reviews but my love of the Sunflower Kitchen Jerusalem Hummus hasn’t changed one bit. So, you can imagine my delight when I received an email from the folks at Sunflower Kitchen.

What was the email about? Back in 2012 when I reviewed the Sunflower Kitchen Jerusalem Hummus, I mentioned that one ingredient was listed as “spices” but I didn’t know what that entailed. I was pretty sure it wouldn’t be anything too creepy given the standup company that Sunflower Kitchen is but today’s email confirmed it. If you’re wondering what is listed under ‘spices’, here is the answer: fresh parsley and cumin.

That’s it. Folks, that’s how you do it right: quality ingredients, simplicity, and plain ol’ goodness.

Original review from November 9, 2012

I love dips and spreads so is it any wonder that I regularly feature them on ThingsThatWeDo.com? I’ve also learned along the way that not all dips and spreads are created equal. Some sound promising and turn out to be complete let downs. Others, surprise me and wow me. Well, allow me to introduce you to Sunflower Kitchen and their Jerusalem Hummus. I’ve never had it before but it caught my eye during a recent holiday trip. I like eating donairs and shwarmas so I’m kind of hoping this will add some vibrant kick to my morning breakfast routine, especially while I’m taking a much needed break. Who knows?

I have my lazy moments (I get them a lot) so sometimes, I’ll look for easy alternatives even though I KNOW I could do it better if I made it myself. Enter Neal Brothers Organic Mild salsa. I’ve tested other Neal Brothers products before and generally, they’re not bad so I’m looking to their organic mild salsa as a possible breakfast condiment to go with my cheese and avocado mix.

I know it’s not hard to chop up some tomatoes and make my own salsa but like I said, I was having a lazy moment.

Le sigh.

A few weeks ago, I did a review on the Cocovie coconut jam. At the time, I loved it but with the temperature fluctuations, my lovely Cocovie coconut jam separated leaving its coconut oil goodness floating on the top and rendering me helpless.

At that time, the lovely folks at Cocovie told me I could combine the two again once the weather warms up a bit and it would be back to its original glory. Well, I am happy to give you all an update on my Cocovie coconut jam.

Guess what?

Jam, jam, and more jam. Strawberry jam, raspberry jam, and then there’s grape jam. Do you like grape jam? I’m on the fence but when my kid decides she’d like to try the Crofters organic Concord grape premium spread, I figured I could review it for ThingsThatWeDo.com to see if it might just change my mind about grape jams.

Meh…I’m not overly excited about testing Crofters organic Concord grape premium spread. It’s just not my thing but then again I do like Concord grapes because they have that signature tartness with a bit of a bite. Maybe it’ll change my mind about grape jam. Maaaaaaaaaaaaaybe.

I occasionally go to food fairs and at food fairs you usually get free samples to try. At a recent food fair, there were folks happily dishing out free samples of the Sabra medium classic salsa. I took the sample home and tried it out the next morning.

Now, before I did that though, I did a little research because one thing I noticed was the sample did not tell me what the ingredients were in the Sabra medium classic salsa. Now, I’m not allergic to anything (that I’m aware of) but if I were Sabra and I wanted to be smart, I would have printed the ingredients on that wee little package. Tsk tsk.
