Gluten Free Naturals Voluntarily Recalls Mixes

April 1st, 2010 by Marissa Carter


This press release comes directly from the FDA website. Gluten Free Naturals is a company out of New Jersey, with wide spread distribution. Nothing is known about how many Kansas City residents may be affected. What can be known is that Gluten Free Naturals has shown good company standards by voluntarily issuing a recall as soon as they realized they had a problem with a supplier :) (more…)


Product Review: Gluten-free Cheese Crackers

April 1st, 2010 by Kimberly Bouldin

I miss the days of being able to open up my pantry, reach & in pull out a box of Cheese-Its to munch on after the kids came home from school or while preparing dinner. Sure, they aren’t the healthiest food, but everything in moderation, right? I hadn’t found anything on the market that even came close to Cheese-Its until the other day. I have 3 words: The Grainless Baker.

When I bought these crackers I had no idea how blown away I would be when I took the first bite. While the crackers were a little thicker than the Cheese-Its, the flavor & texture are pretty darn close to what I remember. My Mom, quite possibly one of the world’s biggest Cheese-It fans, agreed that they were really good. Aaron and Hannah loved too! I could easily have finished that whole box off by myself!

Raw Revolution foods are a line of organic live food bars that are gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and corn-free — perfect for the allergic consumer. The bars are also vegan, and free of trans-fats and refined sugar. Because they are allergen-free and full of nourishing and satisfying ingredients like cashews, coconut, hazelnuts, raisins, raspberries, mango, dates, flax seeds, and almonds, these bars are filling and able to fuel the body — especially for athletes and people on the go.

The creator of the Raw Revolution products says the idea for the line of food bars came when, as a Registered Nurse and Natural Foods Chef, she became passionate about preparing and creating raw food dishes. (more…)

Not long ago, I realized that one of my very favorite all-time restaurants is actually known for being gluten-free! I never realized this before since I just loved going there, because they serve my ultimate comfort food, risotto. That was what mattered to me. If there was only one meal I could eat for the rest of my life, it would risotto, and Risotteria in New York City has always been a stop whenever I am in town. Risotteria opened in early 1999, and has been a popular stop for gluten-free diners and fans of good food alike, for over a decade.

In addition to risotto, Risotteria also serves gluten-free pizza, salad, panini, breadsticks and pasta. Pasta is served on Tuesdays. As their web site states they are gluten-free every hour or every day. To top off this already impressive list, Risotteria has mastered the art of baking gluten-free treats. (more…)

Recipe for Gluten Free Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

March 15th, 2010 by Marissa Carter


It appears to be cookie season! There are cookie sales going on for Girl Scouts, Kansas City area schools, and 4-H clubs.
Looking at all of those tasty offerings is enough to bring a tear to any gluten free eye because they are off limits. Well, wipe that tear away! Here is a solution to the I-can’t-order-these-cookies-because-they’re-full-of-gluten blues.

The recipe for these peanut butter sandwich cookies comes to us from Florida, from Elizabeth Signer (A.K.A The Fat Boxer) to be exact. The recipe comes with many assurances that these cookies are so much better than the ones you can buy that you won’t be missing anything. (more…)

St. Patrick’s day right around the corner, and while many plan on celebrating with green beer, why not whip up a traditional Irish feast that’s tasty, hearty, and all gluten-free?

The following recipes below will surely have you feeling the luck of the Irish. And if you are feeling extra festive, go ahead and add some green food coloring to your favorite gluten-free beer (I recommend Bard’s) of choice! (more…)

I reported this week on a new iPHONE application, My Grocery Master, which allows users to locate gluten-free foods and brands according to zip code. The application claimed to not only allow users to locate gluten-free and lactose-free food items in popular grocery stores nationwide, but it also claimed to help users locate the product via detailed driving directions, all for an annual fee of $4.99.

While this iPHONE application (also available for iPAD and iTOUCH) purported to aide gluten-free consumers in their quest for all things allergen-free, it seems the app isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. (more…)

Great new products for traveling: gluten free style!

March 8th, 2010 by Tiffany Janes

One of the most difficult challenges that people with food intolerances (or allergies) face is staying safe while traveling. Finally, someone figured out that there was a huge need for small, individually packaged gluten free food items. They even went a step further and put together both snack and meal packs for those on the go.

Go Picnic comes to our rescue with nutritionally dense meals and snacks that will sustain anyone in need of protein and carbs, when safe food options are not available. (more…)

Glutenfreeworks.com Editor’s Note: Shipping is $10 on orders less than $100 and free above it.

I recently had the opportunity to try some of the gluten-free mixes sold by Mixes From the Heartland. I was impressed…

Mixes From The Heartland offers a cornucopia of gluten-free foods: more than 300 all natural, nutrient-dense soups, stews, meals, muffins, cakes, desserts, gravies, pancakes, snacks and the best sweet potato brownies I have ever had – period. (more…)
