Things we Love

Global Warmth ( the good kind)

Salsa Queen Salsa
Add a bit of spice to your life with Salsa Queen salsas. Founder Maharba Zapata Garcia was a single mom looking for a way to provide for her seven children. Today, her salsas are shipped throughout the country. Turn up the heat on your favorite taco with the original red chili or pour that bowl of tortilla chips as a delivery vessel for the queso dip. For game days or Netflix binging, make the Queen’s ‘Wow-camole’ by adding both the gourmet pico and the creamy jalapeno with a pinch of salt to two mashed avocadoes. $5.99/each Various Harmons/Smith’s grocery stores

Gunpowder Green Tea
Snuggle up with a cup of gunpowder green tea. Not only will it warm you from the inside, but it has medicinal qualities, too. Loose Gunpowder green tea resembles pellets and is higher in caffeine than regular green teas. Preparing your tea in a traditional cast-iron kettle ($29.99) enhances the medicinal qualities. Iron from the kettle can be absorbed by the tea and provide yet another benefit. Green tea could just be the cure to what ails you this winter season. $5.99/pound
