Marshmallows remind many of us of our childhood - whether it was roasting them by the fire or adding them to a steaming cup of hot chocolate. But Plush Puff takes marshmallows to a whole new level.

These marshmallows are not only gluten-free, they contain no corn syrup and use brown rice syrup instead. Plus, they are fat free so you know that they can't be too bad for you. (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…)
