Dream of Goodies

Dream of Goodies is not your normal gluten free bakery. We make delicious yet healthy treats for all to enjoy that are low glycemic, by pairing healthy fats with organic low glycemic sweeteners. Our goodies never contain GMOs, soy, dairy, chemicals, dyes, or artificial anything. We strive to use only the best ingredients that are sustainably sourced, habitat friendly, and organic whenever possible. Our eggs and butter are locally sourced. The hens are feed organic non-GMO feed and are humanely raised. Our butter is organic and comes from pasture raised, grass-fed cows that aren't treated with rBST. We have a wide variety of treats that range from nut free to vegan. You won’t believe gluten free and healthy could taste this good. We are woman-owned, eco-conscience, and health oriented. Our packaging contains no plastic and is reusable/recyclable, and/or biodegradable.

Nativo Condiments & Seasonings

Nativo offers a variety of seasonings to help you create chef quality food in your very own kitchen. Taste the flavor of Argentina in our hand mixed seasoning blends, all inspired by a passion for flavor. All my products are carefully hand mixed and handcrafted to ensure the quality and support the art of crafting. This takes more time but I believe the passion and delight of a new experience of spices is worth it.
