Cherry Almond Muffins

I remember growing up my grandmother had a cherry tree in her backyard and she always had extra cherries in the Spring and Summer to share with us when we visited. Now that I am getting settled in our own place, I am trying new recipes for my son and myself. My son loves muffins and instead of buying muffins at the store, I wanted to start baking again. We recently made a batch of Cherry Almond Muffins and they barely lasted a week!

One Recipe Book You Can’t Go Without

Write To Me - Recipes Passed Down
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Ever find yourself in a rut wishing you had Aunt Suzie’s spectacular zucchini recipe? Maybe Great-Grandma Karen’s classic Chocolate Cake recipe? Yeah, I feel you. I have been there too many times to count. Even if I ask for the recipe, I don’t have anywhere to store it so that I don’t lose it. So into the cabinet, it goes stuck in a random book where I hope to find it next time I need it. I recently came across a new type of recipe book though and it is a huge game changer when it comes to storing family recipes. Potentially a new family heirloom? An heirloom of recipes but an heirloom no less.

Orzo Summer Salad

When I was growing up, I used to love summer. We had a pool in our backyard, so we would swim almost every day! It was such a great way to have fun and cool off!  Now that I am an adult, I dislike the heat. I stay indoors as much as possible because the heat is so bothersome to me.

Allergy-Free Pockets Certified Delicious

Certified Delicious Allergy-free Pockets
Beauty Brite Disclosure

When it comes to choosing frozen foods, I’m extremely picky. Regardless of convenience, I don’t want fillers, preservatives or processed ingredients in my food. I prefer to eat as clean and possible and with products from Mikey’s I can. Their allergy-free pockets are not only free from dairy, soy, and grain, but they’re also certified delicious.

After trying a selection of their products, I was curious to know more about the name behind the brand, Mikey. It turns out, he is a classically trained chef, who worked at restaurants like Eleven Madison Park in NYC and French Laundry in Napa. While these culinary stalwarts are known for their incredible cuisine, they don’t really offer a chef the chance to share his food with diners everywhere.

Hence, Mikey’s was born.

Clean, Allergy-free Pockets
Mickey's Pockets Packaging

Mikey’s allergy-free pockets come in seven varieties, including two breakfast pockets. Since I don’t eat red meat or pork-based products, the brand kindly sent me their cheese pizza pockets and cauliflower curry pockets. Regardless of whether you are a meat eater or not, all of the pockets are soy, milk & lactose, and grain free. Additionally, they are also Paleo-friendly and low in sugar.

I must admit, I was a bit apprehensive about trying a pizza pocket featuring plant-based mozzarella. Although, plant-based cheeses have come a long way, mozzarella is still hard to pull off. This is not the case with the Mikey’s Cheese Pizza Pockets. I couldn’t even tell that the cheese wasn’t real. It was just delicious.

I also really appreciate that you get two pockets in each package. At 310 calories each, they make for a great lunch or dinner option. Pair them with a salad and you have a very healthy, balanced meal.

In addition to the pizza pocket, I also tried the allergy-free Cauliflower Curry Pockets. As someone who isn’t the biggest fan of Indian food, nor is Indian food the biggest fan of me, I was also a bit apprehensive.  Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised. These pockets were also extremely delicious. The curry flavor was not overpowering. Instead, it complimented the cauliflower and other veggies perfectly.

Allergy Free Cauliflower Curry Pockets

It is important to note that the cauliflower pockets are vegetarian and not vegan, as they do contain egg and honey. Perhaps in the future, Mikey’s will add more plant-based pocket options to their offerings. At 230 calories per serving, the Curry Cauliflower Pockets are also a great, healthy option for lunch or dinner, or even as an afternoon snack.

More Mikey’s Please

After trying out these delicious, allergy-free pockets from Mikey’s, I want more. More of the pockets, including giving the Egg and Cheese a try, as well more of their other products. The brand also makes tortillas, pizza crust, English muffins, muffin tops, and bread. All of which are made from simple, clean ingredients. I highly recommend testing them out for yourself, especially if you are looking for allergy-free foods.

Have you tried Mikey’s before? Which certified delicious, allergy-free pocket would you try?
