This blog comes with a warning: if you are a choco-holic or caramel-holic, please look away and do not continue reading. It is only for your own good, we warn you!

Stroopies are a dangerous cookie-like dessert, a sandwich with two sweet, flaky waffles with a layer of the most delectable caramel that you have ever tasted in the middle. The part that makes it so addicting is the goo factor. If you place the Stroopie over a steaming cup of coffee or tea, the caramel melts and creates an ooey gooey river of goodness that your mouth cannot even fathom.

You think this cannot possibly get any better because it already sounds like the perfect treat, right? Actually, it can. Besides the plain Stroopie, there are the chocolate-dipped Stroopies! Can you tell why Stroopies have a long, happy history? They come from Holland, and are now made by a Lancaster County-based company of the same name.

Don’t walk, run to get your supply of these tantalizing indulgences and see what all the fuss is about for yourself. Contact us at 877-525-7745 or to order yours today!

New Holland Coffee

New Holland Coffee

At the Good Cooking Store, we feature local coffee merchant, New Holland Coffee Company, as the supplier of the coffee we sell by the pound or by the cup. If you have attended any of our cooking classes, you have already enjoyed a cup of one of their delicious blends.

We selected New Holland Coffee because they are located in New Holland, PA, right down the road from our shop. They roast their beans in small batches every day to ensure that what is arriving at our store is topnotch.

We carry Sumatra, Papua New Guinea, Decaf Columbian, and our personalized flavor–called The Good Cooking Store Blend–in one-pound bags with the option to custom grind the beans for your convenience. Contact us at 877-525-7745 or to order yours today!

Cortazzo in a line

Cortazzo Sauces

A few weeks ago we mentioned a fabulous barbecue sauce that we use in our Quickie Barbecued Chicken recipe. We love this brand of sauces so much that it is time to share them all with you!

The sauces are from the Cortazzo company and are made right here in Lancaster County, PA, by Chef Scott Martino. He has been a chef in some of Lancaster County’s finest restaurants. A few years ago he started his own company, making tomato sauces and barbecue sauces based on his family’s recipes.
