Goodie Girl Cookies- Go “Wild”

Guest Blog Post on Goodie Girl Cookies from Steve Archuleta of Randy & Steve’s- The New General Store.

From the bustling streets of Tribeca, Manhattan to the majestic heights of Northern California, a little bit of everything naughty has caught the attention of cookie lovers everywhere. Naturally gluten free and prepared with “just the right amount of wrong”, Goodie Girl Cookies has made a better tasting cookie without the unnecessary junk. While purging the industrys old, 20th-century obsession with synthetic preservatives and hydrogenated fats, Shira Berk has blended her creative past with a passion for baking and subsequently mastered five delightful cookie flavors. It is hard to believe that just two years ago she debuted her creations at Randy & Steves The New General Store. Today, November 2014, the west coast Costco has begun selling our personal favorite, Crunchy Chaos, and Target carries the entire line.

Artfully baked in a peanut free facility, Goodie Girl offers Shira’s traditional mint cookies and oatmeal raisin cookies along side two other recipes that she calls: Chocolate Chip, and Double Chocolate Chip. In this age of health conscious consumerism, we excitedly direct you to the shift-3 combination on your keyboard and encourage you to type #gogoodie into your internet browser to learn more about these delicious cookies. You can also follow Shira at, and on Facebook and Twitter at, @GoodieGirlTribeca and @GoodieGirlNYC, respectively.

So, as Shira says, “Eat-Up and Rock-on!” Randy & Steve followed this wonderful baker’s advice during a recent trip to Yosemite National Park.

We especially enjoy pairing Goodie Girl cookies with both red and white wines. Yummy!

What is Gluten?

The demand for gluten-free foods is exploding! With more awareness being brought to Celiac Disease and a growth in special diets Goodie Girl Cookieshasrisen to the challenge and created delicious cookies that are gluten-free!

There is more and more talk about it but do you actually know what it is? It is the general name for proteins found in wheat, rye, barley, and triticale (a newer grain grown to resemble wheat but is tolerant to a variety of growing conditions). It is most commonly found in breads, pastas, cereals, and guess whatbaked goods! For people who suffer from Celiac Disease a gluten-free diet is essential and according to the experts about 1% of our population is affected!

Celiac disease is caused by an abnormal immune response and can cause damage to the lining of the small intestine. When damage is caused it can lead to a lower volume of nutrient absorption, which no one wants! Goodie Girl Cookiesset out to help relieve those who suffer and those who are simply cutting gluten out of their diets. There is no longer any need to cut out sweets and desserts because Goodie Girl Cookies has taken your favorite classic cookie recipes and made them even more delicious, all-natural, and gluten-free!
