Cozy Hollow Mixes Review and Giveaway CLOSED

 

Getting to know Jill (CozyHollowMixes)

Where are you from? and a little bit about you

I am originally from Atlanta,GA but now live in St James,MO, which is a VERY rural area! My husband, Tim, & I have been married almost 20 years. We have 2 very handsome boys who are 18 & 16. We are also foster parents to 2 little boys who are 10 & 9. Around our home, we eat, sleep, & breathe baseball! Our boys have played since they were 3 & 4! We truly love our quiet lil life in the country!

What items do you carry in your shop?

I have a variety of different dry mixes in my shop, I have soups, breads, brownies, cookies, cakes, coffees, & hot chocolates. I also have a line of truffles! They are hand-dipped, & all natural! The truffles have great flavors like German Chocolate, Red Velvet, Bailey’s Irish Creme, Pina Colada, Key Lime, Harvest Spice, & the list goes on!
How did you decide on your shop name?

Tim & I discussed names for a while before finally deciding on Cozy Hollow. We feel that it evokes a sense of comfort & home.

Do you have anything new you plan on adding to your store?
I have new dry mixes in the works for my store! Not sure when they will be ready to list, but they will get there!

Do you have a blog, twitter, or facebook page?

I do have twitter, facebook, & a blog! I don’t really use any of them though! I know I should, I just don’t have time!

Anything else you would like us to know?

I developed my mixes to make cooking easier for myself & years later decided to share them. As a busy mom, I didn’t always have the time to make things from scratch, the mixes allow that. I have sold them at craft shows for a few years. They are carried by several grocery stores here in Missouri. I also have them in several eclectic lil consignment shops throughout the state.

My Thoughts!

MMmmmm! What more can I say! I was lucky enough to be able to review the Gumbo, Beer Bread, and Creamy Orange Cookies. Each mix was amazing!

Gumbo– I love me some Gumbo. In fact Zaterans is like a staple at my house. But not any longer! I had never been able to find a good Gumbo like the ones I used to eat when I lived in Mississippi. I love that the mix made plenty for my family plus left over’s that I can eat for lunch this week. The taste was wonderful and Jill’s instructions are very easy to follow! I defiantly give this Gumbo Mix 5 stars!

Beer Bread– I had never heard of Beer bread before. I was excited to try it because I am one of those people that will try anything once and it sounded really good! I was excited to try this unheard of Beer Bread. This was some of the easiest bread I have ever made. Just add Beer, stir, and bake. It’s that simple and delicious. I loved the smell it let off while it was cooking. It was also nice and light when we ate it. It went perfect with the Gumbo! You can really taste the flavor of the beer but it was not over powering. The butter that was baked in also added the perfect touch!

Creamy Orange Cookies– I had also never heard of Orange Cookies. These were my husbands pick and they were so easy to make and tasty too! I don’t know how Jill gets the orange flavor in these cookies but I was amazed. They really do taste just like an orange cream sickle. Yummy! I think the best part is that the package made almost 5 dozen cookies!! Most of the time I am lucky to get just over a dozen cookies when I bake a batch. The Creamy Orange Cookies are perfect for a small little treat and I have plenty to pack in my husband’s lunch box as well!
