No stress!! My family obviously loves desserts!

I bought the ingredients for this dessert at one of my favorite places for bargains, Smart & Final. Did you know Smart & Final has tons of gluten free and organic products? This is the place I go to stock up on my kids’ favorite gluten free pasta too…it is 1/2 the price at Smart & Final!!

Who can pass that up?

I picked up all of the ingredients to make this dessert, and a few extras. Do you like to find new bargains to use in recipes? The only thing I added from my pantry was gluten free flour. Hopefully Smart & Final will add this to their products soon :-). I love so much about this store, even their First Street house brand products.

Did you know that Smart & Final donates back a percentage of each and every First Street sale to their local communities? I love when a company gives back to their community.


And Smart & Final is opening new stores that are even bigger and better all over California. They will have opened over 20 new California stores by this summer. Smart & Final is known for offering great value, and at Smart & Final Extra! these stores will be no exception! They never charge a membership fee!
