The “Snack Artist” for Goodie Girl cookies is founder Shira Berk. In 2010, k, She was known by friends as a talented, but untrained baker, and spent much time running the café inside her children’s preschool. A fellow parent challenged her to create a good tasting gluten free cookie. And, wow, has she succeeded. In her words, she has created insanely delicious good for you goodies.”junk food without the junk!”;
The former New York City-based punk rock music-marketing exec created a fun and delicious gluten-free cookie line, certified OU-D kosher. Berk, who lost 80 lbs. nearly 10 years ago, (and has maintained an ideal weight every since) says her favorite flavor is the original gluten-free Quinoa Chocolate Chunk. Their slogan –“Goodness never tasted so wrong”. The cookies are low in calories and made with wholesome ingredients. The entire line is gluten-free.
Our favorite flavors of those we have tasted so far…Definitely the oatmeal raisin cookie for breakfast with our coffee of course, and the chocolate dipped mint slims, a yummy dessert – with only 40 calories per cookie. No these are not health foods, but almost.
Other flavors we will be adding to our future tastings: toffee chaos, midnight brownie, vanilla slims and cocoa slims.

Hoboken Farms Big Tomato Sauce
What can we say about a jarred sauce that tastes as good as our homemade version? Only that we were surprised and delighted! Hoboken Farms is kosher certified by the Kof-k and currently available in 3 flavors – Big Red Marinara, Big Boss Vodka and Big Basil Tomato Basil.
Our first hint that the sauce was exceptional was when we checked the ingredients. In our mind, less is better. And, we like to see ingredients that reflect real food, not chemicals or additives. The ingredients listed on the label of Big Marinara (our favorite) are Whole Tomatoes, Olive Oil, Fresh onion, basil, garlic and spices. That’s it!
No preservative; no additives, all natural. Yumm.
From CEO and founder Brad Finkel: My grandmother made a really good sauce,” “but mine is much better.” The secret to Finkel’s successful sauce? Really great tomatoes. “We look for sugar content and acidity balance,” he says, “That makes it taste great.” He uses New Jersey tomatoes when they’re in season and California tomatoes when Jerseys aren’t. Finkel explains that his Big Red Marinara occasionally is unavailable when he’s had to send tomatoes back that don’t meet his standards, saying, “We work so hard to build our reputation, we’re not going to ruin it with half-ass tomatoes.”…
Big Red Marinara is sold at Whole Foods Market, Bed Bath and Beyond, and independent retail shops across the U.S. The sauce was named Best Marinara Sauce in the country by the Wall Street Journal In 2011, The mission of Hoboken Farms is to delight the customer and serve its employees and community. They absolutely did delight this kosher foodie!

We have been fans of Bone Suckin’ Sauce since its inception. The original was a Western North Carolina sauce combining a tomato base with honey, molasses and spices, It became a grilling phenomenon. The ingredients were and still are all natural, gluten free, non-gmo, paleo friendly, vegan and certified OU kosher parve.
Now this southern company has ventured out... and become a brand of delicious sauces and rubs.
Bone Suckin’ Sauce premium Yaki BBQ sauce- was voted #1 Teriyaki by the New York Daily News! The company is proud to explain that it is “richer in flavor than traditional teriyaki because of the addition of Italian Balsamic Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.” It is also lower in salt and has a hint of garlic. We used it as a marinade for our grilled chicken, and, slathered it on a London Broil on the grill. Fabulous!
Bone Suckin’ Sauce Cajun Seasoning and Rub is a blend of spices & herbs combined with some "up a notch" heat! We found this a nice-spice addition to our chicken paella and rice; Use On fiah, poultry, ateaks, pasta, Fries, vegetables, gumbos & more!
Bone Suckin’ Sauce Chophouse style steak sauce. We slathered it on our ribs steaks. YUMM! It is recommended for steaks, burgers, chicken, & more!
Bone Suckin’ Sauces are available at Whole Foods, Fresh Market, and supermarkets nationwide. Although, sometimes a bit more costly than some mainstream brands, trust us it’s worth the price. For more information visit: Bonesuckin.com
