I wanted to take a few minutes to showcase the November specials for Watkins. I will be placing a Watkins order on Friday (November 4th), so if anybody local would like to add items to my order, just let me know by 3 pm on Friday... by phone, e-mail or Facebook! If you're out of town, you can put together an order yourself at the Watkins website, and plug in 104159 at the checkout, where it asks you to search for a Watkins Representative. You can get free shipping on a $150 order... you can always combine an order with some friends, family or co-workers!
It's soup-making season... are you stocked up on Watkins Soup Bases? For the next two months, Baked Potato Soup Base is back! Baked Potato Soup Base
One of Bethany's breakfast favorites is back this month, too: Cinna-Cream Sprinkles. It's like a vanilla-flavored cinnamon-sugar. Bethany loves it on buttered toast. I think I'll buy a few extra bottles so I have enough to get us through to next Fall's gift line!
For Thanksgiving dinner, do you need Turkey Rub, Roasted Turkey Gourmet Gravy Mix (that's my secret ingredient in homemade turkey soup), or Poultry Seasoning for your stuffing?
Pumpkin butter is back! In the past few days, I've seen a lot of comments about pumpkin-flavored beverages on the internet... pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin lattes, etc. One quick & easy recipe I saw called for warming up milk, then adding pumpkin butter, for a delicious, caffeine-free pumpkin latte. It's $6.99 -- and once they run out, it won't be available again until next September (if they offer it again next year).
For holiday baking, Watkins Original Double Strength Vanilla is on sale (usually $15.99, now it's $13.99), as well as the Imitation Clear Vanilla Extract (usually $12.99, now on sale for $11.99). The "Baker's Size" extract for Lemon Extract, Almond Extract, Coconut Extract & Lemon Extract are available for $9.99 each ($10.99 for Lemon), but like the other seasonal items, once they're gone, you won't be able to get them any more until next fall. Baker's Size (6 oz) extracts This year's seasonal extracts are Black Walnut, Danish Pastry, Hazelnut & Irish Cream - $6.99 per two-ounce bottle.
If you're a fan of Watkins Cooking Spray (I definitely am!), there's a combination special on that. If you buy Watkins Cooking Spray ($7.99 for a big 14-oz can) and Watkins Baking Powder ($5.99), you can get Watkins Baking Cocoa for only $3.59 (regular price is $5.99).
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Take a look at the tinted lip gloss or the hand cream. Want to make your holiday baking easier? Buy one Shortbread Cookie mix for $5.19 and get a second for only $2.99 - or buy a Pumpkin Bread Mix for $5.99 and get a second for $3.49.
The complete Watkins product line is available - from spices and extracts to cleaning products and vitamins. Take a look around the Watkins website and let me know what you need to get your house ready for the holidays!
Check out the recipe for Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake - I think Wegmans carries gluten-free gingersnaps... so it would be very easy to make up this recipe gluten-free!
