Foodstirs is a monthly baking subscription box. Every month, you’ll receive family-oriented baking kits made with premium and real ingredients, free of preservatives, artificial dyes, and flavors. The mixes use organic and non-GMO ingredients when available.
Your subscription will start with the kit indicated on the subscription information page!
The theme for March was Blooming Basket Cookies. When the treats have a holiday theme, this subscription typically comes way in advance of the holiday, so you’ll have it not only in time to make for the holiday itself but also in time for pre-holiday parties if you like.
As always, Foodstirs provides organic mixes and contains no artificial ingredients.
The box includes a card letting you know the ingredients needed, tools, baking time, quantity, etc.
I like that it breaks down the ingredients you need twice (the second time being what you need at home). The kit includes all dry ingredients and decorative items — you supply eggs, butter, and other dairy when needed. When making Foodstirs, you’ll always want to have butter and plain Greek yogurt on hand, as these are almost always required.
The box includes complete nutritional and ingredients information. You will like the ingredients – never anything artificial, and the ingredients are primarily organic with only natural food dye. Nutrition information covers only what is provided in the kit – they don’t state the nutritional profile of the prepared food once you’ve added the required butter, eggs, yogurt, etc.
The instructions. They are step by step with a photo for each step. One card walked us through the dough preparation, baking, and cutting the cookies – a second card had complete instructions for turning the cookies into Blooming Baskets.
This kit has a bonus decorating card!
As an alternative to the basket design, they suggested making little nests.
There’s also a coupon code sent that you can use at ColorKitchenFoods.com
Here are all the baking and decorating supplies in our box!
The dough was a nice chocolate chip cookie dough. The numerous chips actually made it easy to roll the dough to a uniform thickness, as they supported the rolling pin. After a spell in the freezer, we cut out our eggs and baked them.
They grew alot in the oven! The instructions had us recut the cookies to reestablish the definition of the eggs. This was a bit of a silly step, since we were going to be covering the edges with textured frosting anyway. I think we cut away more cookie than there was within the cutter. Don’t worry, we didn’t waste the scraps!
Non-artificial food coloring was included in both green and yellow, as well as a decorative tip for the icing bag. We tried out both the decorative suggestions. I think I like the baskets more – which do you prefer?
