I used to shop at local food co-ops to get great prices. Now that the co-ops are more mainstream (tho still preferable to Whole Foods!), I find Amazon.com an economical choice. How does it get better than great prices + free delivery to my door?
Here are some food and other items my family regularly eats and uses. Check them out and enjoy!

Edward & Sons Brown Rice Snaps are awesome!
Edward & Sons Brown Rice Crackers

And my personal staple…I’ve lived on these sometimes…even when your digestion is acting up, these will stay down! Great for morning sickness…(no worries, friends, that personal experience was many years ago!) Great with nut butter & honey, bean dip, guacamole, crumbled into soup, crushed for a gluten-free crumb to coat fish or chicken…endless uses. This is the best price around, by the case.

Like the chocolate truffles of dried fruit! Can’t even call them “dried” they are so tender melt in your mouth yummy! Also by the case. And the best price is when you “subscribe”

These are quintessentially Italian…just the smell makes me drool! These are delish on their own, with ice cream, and crushed into a crumb crust for cheesecake for instance. Also an important ingredient in certain Italian dishes you might not expect to find cookies in!
Amaretti Cookies

My husband is a chef and has made several food trips to Italy. He visited the Montebello factory that produces this pasta, and can personally vouch for the high quality of the water and flour used. This isn’t wheat flour like you’d find at Whole Foods! This is traditional durum pasta wheat flour grown in Italy just for making pasta. Here’s the link to a full selection:
Excellent Pasta from Italy
And here’s an example:

A homeopathic gel for pain relief that really works! (This is NOT by the case…)

Did you know that if every household in the USA replaced just one roll of regular TP with recycled TP, it would save 295,000 trees? Here’s a selection:
Recycled Tissue Selection

Plus, this is soft, unscented tissue.
And here’s the link we order from at my house:

And what would a page like this be without a few vitamins? I’ve used Twinlabs brand for years–

Some house and garden products work so well you may wonder (as I did) how I got along without them!

When my dentist finished filling a cavity in my farthest, most awkward-to-reach molar, he asked me if I brushed and rinsed before bed every night. I said, “Yeah, for most of my life!” He suggested a Water Pik, since brushing and flossing obviously weren’t doing the job. Wow, what a difference!

And board games are a favorite at our house. Here are some of our favorites, the ones we like to play again and again.

Carcassonne, and its expansions, everyone in the family enjoys!

favorite expansions for Carcasonne too!
Princess and Dragon–really wild!

Inns and Cathedrals amp up the scores!

What else is possible for fun?

Can you tell we are fans of this game?

Love these mini-expansions!

Another favorite boardgame is Settlers of Catan. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000W7JWUA/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000W7JWUA&linkCode=as2&tag=httpastroecom-20

I’d recommend our favorite Settlers expansion but it doesn’t appear to exist anymore…how does it get any better than that?

Calendars for the new year–make great gifts, and these are our perennial favorites:



And you may need this to go with your adventuring….



And what is life without new books by favorite authors?

I love the Liaden Universe…
