Cookie Dough Cafe

Mail Order Cookie Dough

Monster dough is creamy trail mix cookie dough in a jar!

For all of us who are cookie dough lovers, we can now skip the baking part and just enjoy the dough.

Cookie Dough Cafe has created edible gourmet cookie dough specifically to be enjoyed unbaked. Available in pint and individual sizes, Cookie Dough Cafe uses real cookie dough ingredients, minus the eggs, and then loads the dough with chocolate chips and brand-name mix-ins like M&Ms and Oreos. Flavors include Classic Chocolate Chip, Cookies & Cream, Monster, shown above, and Naked (just the dough).

If the Cookie Dough Cafe seems vaguely familiar, it may be because you saw this women-owned business on Shark Tank.

Callie’s Charleston Biscuits

We may earn an affiliate commission when you buy via links on our site. Learn more.

Online mail order southern ham biscuits

Callie’s Charleston Buttermilk Biscuits with Ham. Yes, please.

Southern buttermilk biscuits, ham biscuits, cheese & chive biscuits. A delivery of two dozen biscuits from Callie’s is as if a southern grandmother sent you a care package.

If you grew up in the south, you’ll understand how a good buttermilk biscuit can have a life-long hold on you. Buttery, flaky, and tender, Callie’s biscuits are almost everything you’d want a biscuit to be. Reading Callie’s ingredient list revealed a special ingredient: cream cheese.

Now, sure, if you want to make biscuits yourself Callie provided her wonderful recipe to the Washington Post: Callie’s Biscuit Recipe.

Here’s a tip. Not any flour will do. When Callie’s recipe calls for White Lily brand self-rising flour, well, good luck in finding that north of the Mason-Dixon line. For you biscuit lovers reading this, I know from first-hand experience that Kentucky biscuit makers favor Martha White’s brand self-rising flour.

But for those who want a tender biscuit without the work, Callie’s has you covered! You can order two dozen classic buttermilk biscuits or maybe their ham biscuits, which use finely chopped artisanal Virginia Country Ham, Dijon mustard butter and their signature cheese and chive biscuit.

Let’s Go Shopping!

Pricing: $40 for 2 dozen biscuits (serves 8 – 10 people), $45 for 2 dozen ham biscuits

Shipping: Ships with a reusable cooler and a gel ice pack, so 2-day shipping is pricey. $20 from NC to NY.

Pink Himalayan Salt Glasses from The Spice Lab

With the beautiful appearance of rose quartz, these shot glasses from Uncommon Goods are carved from the finest quality, food grade Himalayan pink salt. They add a wonderful salty note to your premium tequila. Have your sliced limes at the ready for a delicious citrus finish.

Be advised–your shot will become saltier the longer it sits inside the glass–so cheers! Simply wipe the glasses dry between each use to avoid a salty brine from forming. Do we need to say it: do not put these glasses in the dishwasher.

Himalayan salt comes from a low-lying region positioned in the first foothills of the Himalayas, over an area of approximately 200 square miles, in the northwest corner of Pakistan. The deposits of salt from ancient oceans are found 1,200 to 2,000 feet below the surface. Carefully mined, this is the highest quality and the purest salt in the world.

  • Holds 1.2 ounces
  • Stands 3″ tall
  • Perfect for tequila
  • Crafted from Himalayan salt
  • Do not place in dishwasher

Povitica

Povitica, Croatian Dessert Bread

Povitica, a traditional Croation, walnut-filled bread

Povitica (po-vuh-teet-sa) also known as Potica (po-teet-sa) is a traditional Croatian dessert bread, rolled into layers (think of a Babka–only richer) and traditionally filled with a paste of walnuts and honey–though there are many other fillings used as well.

If you already know that, chances are it’s because you are lucky enough to have a Povitica baker in the family, and if so, you are highly opinionated as to what it should look and taste like. Our family has been blessed with two excellent Povitica bakers who can be cajoled into making at least one at Christmas. But if a Povitica craving hits between major holidays, you can order from one of the following bakeries. It won’t be like what your grandmother or mom makes (nothing ever is!), but it’ll come near to hitting the spot.

Update 2018: Since writing this post, there are even fewer places to buy a povitica online. We once listed four options, now there are only two that we are aware of. You can still depend on Strawberry Hill Bakery, and now the Vermont Country Store sells povitica too.
