Despite what Pinterest might have you believe, not everyone can recreate all types of cuisine in their homes. For example, I have tried on more than one occasion to make delicious Indian food from home. Every time, I FAILED. Not a small fail, mind you, but a mind-blowing fail. Each and every attempt was a major bust. I’ve learned through experience that if I want Indian food, I need to get myself over to the nearest Indian restaurant (or at least call them to get take out). There’s just no point in trying to re-create something that clearly takes a knowledge base, skill set, and perhaps even spice selection that is far superior to my own.
But here’s the thing: there are only 2 Indian restaurants in my entire city (and I live in a mid-sized urban environment!). They can be inconvenient to get to from my house. Additionally, sometimes I just need to not spend $12 on dinner for one, know what I’m saying? I’ve got to keep that budget under control!
Enter Crave Foods. This company offers a gourmet line of ready made sweet and savory pies and samosas. Samosas are my favorite thing to order at Indian restaurants! While they can’t help me recreate an entire buffet of foods, I can at least get the item I love the very most and all it takes is a bit of patience while I wait for them to cook in my oven. They are full of spice and flavor, just as I would expect them to be if I had ordered them straight from a restaurant. I think they are terrific!
Crave Foods also has a nice selection of sweet mini pies, and here’s the best part: they are gluten-free! My mother-in-law has a wheat allergy, so she never gets to eat pie. When she was visiting recently, she had the opportunity to eat a mini pecan pie from Crave Foods and she said it was a delightful treat. I’m glad to know about them now so that I can get more for her the next time she is in town.
