Easter Bunny Cookie Basket – Tate’s Bake Shop Review

Easter Bunny Cookie Basket – Tate’s Bake Shop Review


Finally, Spring is in the air! What better way to celebrate than with some extra special goodies from Tate’s Bake Shop.

Easter Bunny Cookie Basket

When my Easter Bunny Cookie Basket arrived I was beyond eager to tear into it, especially since I was home alone and not in the mood to share. As soon as I opened the box I saw a cute Spring inspired basket filled with mouthwatering cookies. Chocolate Chip, Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Chip Cookie Bark. I knew it was just a matter of time before someone found out these goodies were in the house. I had to act fast!

Just opening the basket, not the cookies, I could smell the chocolaty goodness that was inside each individually wrapped stack of cookies. Which one to sample first?

How do you decide which cookie to try first?!

Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip CookiesTo make the decision easier I decided to go left to right. On the far left was the Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies. I’ve told you before Dark Chocolate was my favorite chocolate, so needless to say I loved these. Absolutely, positively loved them. They are crispy and taste so incredibly fresh. If the thought of whole wheat cookies throws you off don’t let it. You can’t even tell the difference!

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Next up we had the Double Chocolate Chip Cookies. If that doesn’t scream eat me then I don’t know what does!  These cookies are definitely packing flavor. The melt in your mouth chocolate chips paired with the chocolate cookie itself are out of this world delicious. They’re not quite as crispy as the other cookies which is a positive thing in my book. I love texture variations especially when there are multiple types of goodies.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Alright, the next cookie was the Chocolate Chip Cookies. Now, you may be saying there can’t be anything overly special about these.

You would be wrong (sorry!)

I make really good Chocolate Chip Cookies, but I can’t come close to the magic Kathleen King (founder of Tate’s Bake Shop) creates. The crispness alone of these cookies are to die for. One bite and my eyes closed and I was taken back to my childhood eating my Granny’s cookies. Don’t tell her but Kathleen’s are better (shhh!) They are thin and crispy and so full of buttery goodness. Each bite is an experience in its own.

 Chocolate Chip Cookie BarkFinally we have the Chocolate Chip Cookie Bark. Not technically a cookie but I won’t tell if you don’t tell! Can I just say first, Holy chocolate Batman! These babies are covered with adorable Easter themed sprinkles and chocked full of chocolate flavor with a slight bit of crispiness in the center. The textures combined made my taste buds do a happy dance.

I’m not even going to try to pick a favorite. It’s impossible. Everything in the Easter Bunny Cookie Basket is delicious. 

These are not commercial cookies. They’re not full of preservatives and unpronounceable ingredients. They’re made fresh to order in Southampton, NY. If you’re in the area you have to stop in. I may have to plan a special trip to New York just to visit Tate’s Bake Shop!

Okabashi Sienna Sandal Review

Okabashi Sienna Sandal Review


Today is 70° and sunny, what a perfect day to wear my new Sienna Sandal from Okabashi! There are so many reasons I love Okabashi, the first being they are US based (in Buford, Georgia). That means every shoe they produce is made and sold right here in the U S of A.

Another reason to love Okabashi is their 2 year guarantee on each piece of footwear.

Also with Okabashi Sienna:

  • Each shoe has arch support
  • Each shoe offers superior comfort
  • 100% recyclable
  • Shoes are waterproof and dishwasher safe
  • Shoes are affordable, starting at just $14.99
  • Endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA)

Okabashi Sienna Sandal Review There are so many selling points but the price, comfort and style were all it took for me to fall in love with Okabashi. Seriously, where else can you find high quality shoes that are sustainable and comfortable for under $20? I’ve yet to find anywhere else.

The arch support on the Sienna Sandal is fantastic. I walk around barefoot a lot so my arches are in dire need of support. The only issue I had with the shoes was getting my chubby foot all the way inside. That was remedied with the slightly stretchy material used to make these cute sandals. Once my foot was in there was pure comfort and support.Okabashi Sienna Sandal Review

Now, you’d think with me shoving my chubby foot in this shoe I would have marks on my foot from the straps. Nope. Like I said, pure comfort! There have been no blisters, no chaffing and no uncomfortable rubbing at all. I was hesitant to get white shoes since I’m always stepping in something, but being able to toss them in the dishwasher at the end of the day takes care of that.

I’m sorry, but I just find it incredible that I can do that. If something happens within 2 years of owning them they’re covered by warranty. With them being so affordable you can be sure I’ll be buying more Okabashi Sandals to help me enjoy this Spring and Summer in style and comfort. I highly recommend you do the same, especially if your feet are in need of pampering.

The Sienna Sandals are $18.99 and available in the following colors:

  • Brown
  • Wheat
  • White
  • Black

They are available in sizes 5 – 10.5.
