Are you a foodie? I’m a chef, I would consider myself a foodie. I’m going to share some my favorite brands and companies I’ve worked with this year and I would totally recommend them all of them to you! Some brands, we use at work and are worth sharing as well. I think it’s great to make friendships with foodie brands, because food makes people happy.  

Happy Day Brand

At Happy Day Brands we are committed to crafting all natural, Non-GMO and Organic products and cultivating experiences that transform lives, help the most vulnerable succeed, and inspire people to shape a better more sustainable world. Every Happy Day product sold provides meals to those in need through our “Buy One. Give One” campaign in partnership with local food banks, and job training for women in transition. Check out their recipe blog, you will thank me later.

I was lucky enough to get a box of Happy Day Brand items a few months ago and my favorite is the keto pancake mix and the oats. I love making overnight oats, now that I created it all last year at work. The ideas are endless for it and it’s really good, totally recommend checking them out!


We’re not just non-dairy milk makers, we’re matchmakers. Introducing your perfect milky match – Oatsome organic oat milk. It’s deliciously drinkable, fantastically frothable and without dairy, nuts, added sugars or anything artificial. Sure, you can’t date Oatsome but you can drink it, bake with it and enjoy the taste wherever you use milk. Check out these tasty recipes made with Oatsome.

I’m lactose intolerant when it comes to some forms of dairy, so I like to play it safe and get my milk source elsewhere. Oatsome is my favorite for smoothies in the morning before heading out the door to work.

I’ve gotten a few bakery goods from them shipped to the house over the years and they’re always so moist and delicious. We got some the other week and we’re totally eating them for Thanksgiving. They had a Dr Pepper cake and it was the best thing ever!

Moore’s Marinates & Sauces

It all began over thirty years ago in the small Alabama town of Jasper with a family-owned steakhouse and homegrown good flavor.  There, Moore’s Original Marinade was created and soon became a staple in the town for its delightful, hickory taste.  From the start, our flavor defined not only food, but family. This recipe was the Moore’s family’s shining achievement and was so sought after, that they eventually began to sell it in Styrofoam cups to the steakhouse regulars.

Earlier this year I did a collaboration with Moore’s for some chicken tacos and they were so freaking good ya’ll. I took the spicy ones my bosses who love spicy stuff. I often take anything food related I get food wise to work, they love that stuff.
