For babies eight months and above, baby quinoa delivers that same treasure trove of nutrients, in a delicious and easily digestible form. Kañiwa is packed with B vitamins to give babies energy, calcium and phosphorus to promote bone growth, and it’s especially rich in iron.

Kañiwa also delivers amino acids babies won’t get from ordinary grains, especially lysine, which helps little bodies synthesize protein and create energy. It delivers omega fatty acids to help little eyes and brain develop. And it’s full of fiber, aiding in healthy digestion. (Always consult your physician when adding new foods to your baby’s diet.)

HOW TO PREPARE BABY QUINOA FOR YOUR BABY
There are so many great ways to serve baby quinoa. Here are a few ideas:
For a simple baby cereal, boil ½ cup kañiwa in a cup of water or milk for twelve minutes. Then, blend to a smooth purée. You can also add cinnamon or vanilla.
To make a pilaf, mix 1 cup cooked kañiwa with ⅓ cup chicken or vegetable stock, and ¼ cup peas. Simmer for ten minutes.

For a fruity treat, boil ¼ cup kañiwa with ½ cup water, then reduce to a simmer and a small diced apple and a spoonful of raisin. Simmer for five minutes, turn off, and stir in ½ mashed banana and a pinch of cinnamon. Delicious!`

Barbara's Puffins CerealIn 1971, when Barbara started our company, the Bay Area was buzzing with young people full of a desire to express their love for all people. The world was changing daily as they created their own paths and sought to turn others onto new directions. Barbara, then 17, found her calling in real food and opened a small natural bakery in Northern California. She had a simple plan-make wholesome food taste incredibly delicious. Inspired by good health, family, and the kitchen table as the cornerstones of the good life, she used whole grains and oats just as nature intended-keeping things simple and real. The bakery exceeded her wildest dreams and grew from a storefront start-up to a thriving wholesale business. Since those first loaves more than 40 years ago, our product offerings have grown to include cereals, snack bars, cookies, and cheese puffs. We carry on Barbara’s commitment to create simple, wholesome, and delicious products with the most honest ingredients.

Home ChefHome Chef was founded with a simple goal: to provide our customers with a delightful home cooking experience. Our founder, Pat Vihtelic, and his wife found it hard to make time to prepare home cooked dinners after work. Pat discovered that online grocery services only solved part of the problem — he still had to think about what was for dinner, and didn’t have time to comb the internet for recipes. More often than not, he was overwhelmed by the prospect of meal planning, and resorted to takeout.

My family loved the food and we loved how easy the step by step directions are. Making the meal didn’t take long and got us out of our boring routine. The flavors were amazing and there was plenty of food to make us full.

Colman's Mustard Powder, 4 Ounce Colman’s history dates back to 1814, a time when King George III was on the throne and Wellington was preparing to defeat Napoleon at Waterloo. Auspicious times…but enough European history already! The most important fact to remember about 1814 was that Jeremiah Colman took over a mustard manufacturing business and mustard in England was never to be the same again. With the zesty blend of high-quality brown mustard seeds (Brassica Juncea) and white mustard seeds (Sinapis Alba) grown and harvested locally around Norwich, Colman’s transcended to be much more than a condiment – it was a bold and spicy staple that captured the hearts and taste buds of a country. For nearly 200 years we have delivered the finest quality, gourmet spicy mustard, from farm to table, with a fresh and fiery kick that speaks to our time-honored process of mustard making.

The Manhattan: Barrel Finished CocktailThe new Esquire & Jefferson's Manhattan: Barrel Finished Cocktail was conceptualized in 2013 by Esquire's Editor-in-Chief David Granger and Jefferson's Bourbon founder Trey Zoeller, in an effort to provide bourbon enthusiasts with a barrel-finished bottled cocktail that enhances the experience of enjoying a classic. In search of delicious, oaky notes and a well-balanced flavor profile, Granger and Zoeller (aided by various Esquire staffers) tested dozens of recipes together until they narrowed down the options to just three recipes. Those three options were then aged for 90 days in bourbon barrels until just one stood out as a superior Manhattan. The finished product is comprised of six-year-old bourbon – 125 proof cut down to 82.3 – both sweet and dry vermouth, and barrel-aged, spiced cherry bitters. Enjoy it as you would any Manhattan: on the rocks or stirred and strained over ice. Check out your local store today to buy a bottle of your own.

JEJU 16 SIXTEEN Bedrock Water

From across the globe comes a water unique to its origin. The volcanic island of Jeju, where 16 Water was born, is a world of its own tucked away off the coast of South Korea. Jeju has its own ecosystem, culture, climate and of course, water supply. Only through this perfect set of circumstances and 2 million years of volcanic activity did such a place come to be. The result is an island paradise capable of supplying the purest expression of what makes life possible on earth: water. But, 16 is more than just water, 16 is a gift from a time long before us. What starts as rainwater is naturally purified through 16 layers of volcanic bedrock, creating a ready to drink water that is cleansed through a natural process untouched by human hands.
