Relay Foods delivers to PGCo, Copper Canyon Grill's local connection and opening, Hank's Tavern on Groupon, and Mama Cocoa's cocoa drink.

I’m staring down the barrel of a wintery mix wash out of a weekend and my response is this: Gonna bake me some Christmas cookies.  Gonna bake me some cookies as big as your head.  I’m going to get my ingredients at Wegmanns or maybe try out baking with coconut flour from my my soon to be delivered Carnivore Kit from Relay Foods, an online organic grocery, which locally sources their products and delivers. My carnivore kit includes the following items all items I have never tried:

  • Sausage Craft Mild Italian Sausage – Frozen (1)
  • Kale (1)
  • Yawp! Naked Nutrition Bar (1)
  • Meyer Ranch Ground Chuck, 80% lean – Fresh (1)
  • Bob’s Red Mill Organic High Fiber Coconut Flour (1)
  • Nature’s Yoke Cage Free, Veggie Fed, All Natural Brown Eggs (1)

Relay Foods LogI was approached while strolling down a DC street by Relay Foods representative who were offering first time deals.  The $11 deals were for the carnivore kit and two others (vegans don’t judge me) .  I figured for $11, why not try something new.  Then I remembered I live in Prince George’s County where businesses like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods Market think we don’t exist.  BIG SHOUT OUT to MOM’s Organic in Bowie and College Park!!  *sidebar* Let’s stop begging stores like Trader Joe’s and restaurants to come to our county and support what’s here so they can expand and become the next big thing. *end sidebar*  Much to my chagrin, Relay Foods has a Baltimore facility that delivers to my area. Yay!  The delivery is this Saturday.  Be sure to follow me on Twitter, Facebook and/or Instagram for my postings on the delivered package.


Mama Cocoas DelightsMama Cocoa’s Delights has the perfect pairing to my soon coming cookies: hot coco mix with handmade marshmallows today.  The cocoa mix comes in 3 delicious flavor options.  One flavor is called “Midnight” This coco is super dark and less sweet. Another is called “Velvet” this is a rich traditional hot coco and the third is a nondairy offering specially made for all of you who want a rich chocolate drink without all of the dairy products and this blend is completely vegan.  Mama Cocoa’s is located at 13015 9th Street Bowie, MD 20720, inside an antique shop & parking is available in the back.

Hanks Tavern and EatsHanks Tavern & Eats in Hyattsville has a Groupon deal: $10 for $20 worth of food.  Located at 6507 American Blvd, Hyattsville, MD, near the movie theater over by The Mall at Prince George’s, Hanks Tavern and Eats serves standard American food for breakfast, brunch, and dinner:  burgers, sandwiches, shrimp & grits, waffles, pancakes, pasta dishes, salads and such.

Copper Canyon GrillCopper Canyon Grill is now open at the Woodmore Town Center but did you know the restaurant group that owns it actually has ties to Prince George’s County?  Copper Canyon Grill is owned and operated by Blue Ridge Restaurant Group (BRRG) in Columbia Maryland. “We are very excited to become a part of Prince George’s County,” says David Jones,  Managing Member of the BBRG. Mr. Jones is a native of Prince George’s County and attended public schools, Prince George’s Community College,  and is a graduate of the University of Maryland. “Several of our investors are life-long residents of this County and are all thrilled at the opportunity to serve their hometown.”  OK.  Good reason to support.  I’ve been to the one in Silver Spring and enjoyed myself.  They have a small menu that I found to be above the TGIF’s of this world and the service was good.  Check out their website and make reservations HERE
