With this year having been such a horrible winter, I really wanted this month's box to be full of cozy essentials to help bring some joy into the otherwise gloomy and cold landscape so much of us have been living in! Our Snowed In box did just that, and we were lucky enough to be able to feature so many amazing Canadian makers this month.
Baking is such a wonderful form of self-care, but it can be a big endeavour to undertake when you're feeling worn down, which is why I love including baking mixes! Dolled Up Desserts is a Toronto-based company who makes gluten-free and vegan premium baking mixes, which is awesome for anyone who is following a special diet due to chronic illness, plus they're natural and a healthier option. We included The Monroe Blondie baking mix in this box, which creates a fudgy blondie with flavours of vanilla, maple, and almond.
