Hamantashen is dairy and was made here in Seattle by Francine’s Desserts.

Montana beer from Total Wine.

And last but definitely not least: Bequet Caramels!

This summer we were able to make a trip to visit family in Idaho, Montana, and Spokane WA. We had such a great time and it was so nice to see everyone and to get away from “the city”.
