 I've been on the hunt for great products to entertain with this holiday season and beyond. I always look forward to partnering with Babbleboxx, they always introduce my family to so many amazing new and exciting products. I love getting the opportunity to try new stuff and share them with you guys. Plus, I'm able to try some products that I've never heard of before. My most recent Babbleboxx was jam-packed with some amazing products to entertain with this holiday season.


Jus-Rol offers an assortment of dough, pie crust, pizza crust, and puff pastry. Jus-Rol’s Pie Crust is flaky, lard-free, and 25% thicker than the leading pie crust. Jus-Rol’s Thin Crust, Pizza Crust, and Puff Pastry are Non-GMO, with no artificial flavors or colors, high fructose corn syrup, or bleached flour. Jus-Rol Puff Pastry is vegan and vegetarian-friendly. I love that I'm able to spend less time in the kitchen and more time with family this holiday season thanks to Jus-Rol.

Zing Zang Cocktails®

Looking for the perfect Ready-to-drink, Canned Cocktail. Bloody Marys or Margs to have on hand?! Zing Zang Cocktails® is the perfect cocktail for your guests this holiday season. I added fresh frozen cranberries and a cinnamon stick to garnish with.

Zing Zang Bloody Mary with Vodka Canned Cocktails are the #1 selling Bloody Mary Ready-to-Drink Can. They are perfect for brunches, tailgates, or just the occasional Bloody Mary at home, and of course holiday entertaining! (3. 9% ABV is the equivalent of two cocktails per can.)

Zing Zang Mango Margarita with Tequila Canned Cocktails are made with all-natural ingredients and no high fructose corn syrup, artificial dyes, or preservatives. This is the perfect option for your happy hour, taco Tuesday, parties, or home bar. (3. 9% ABV is the equivalent of two cocktails per can.)

Dorot Gardens

I tried Dorot Gardens products, for the first time last year, and they're truly a must-have! They really have become my favorite cooking hack. I love that always has fresh ingredients on hand thanks to Dorot. Plus, theirs no chopping or peeling, or mess! Just a simple pop to effortlessly season and flavor my favorite dishes. I love that I can now always make a quick dip on a whim all I have to do is add cream cheese or sour cream and it's ready in minutes. How cool is that?! With Dorot you can have fresh Garlic and Herbs year-round with the simple “pop”.
