Vegan Grilled Cheese and Dill Pickle Soup

Image
I have a lot of pickles in my fridge and someone on Instagram had mentioned dill pickle soup. I thought it sounded interesting but I didn’t look up a recipe.  I was using things I had in my house as I  haven’t gone grocery shopping for awhile. I added vegan butter, half an onion, 1 potato, a few pickles, and lots of spices to the soup maker. I used curry powder, dried parsley, smoked paprika, mushroom seasoning, salt and pepper. I turned the soup maker on and went to do a workout. The soup maker is still my favourite gadget.  I am always amazed by how good things turn out in the soup maker. I will make this soup again but I will use more vegetables next time to get a creamier texture.  I found this really good applewood vegan cheddar block from the UK at Save-On-Foods on sale for $8.99. I thought it was expensive when I bought  but the block lasted a long time and it melts great the best melting vegan cheese I have tried so far. You can see the cheese here on my second Instagram accoun

Excel Naturally Sweetened Gum

I received some free samples from home testers club this is the review I posted on their site. This gum is like the old wrigley's it comes in a long stick and is individually foil wrapped. The taste is good it doesn't have the really powerful mint taste that the chemically sweetened gum has but it has a nice flavour. I prefer the pellet gum and the packing of this gum could use some improvement as the gum got hidden in my purse. The gum did last a long time in my mouth it never disintegrated like other gums do. Overall I liked this gum I am a gum addict and don't like to eat chemicals but for some reason I chew chemically sweetened gum I am for improvements in the naturally sweetened gum area.
