Hamburger Helper is No Longer Gluten-free!!

It has been a little over a year since General Mills launched gluten-free Hamburger Helper and already it has been changed.

Hamburger Helper will no longer be gluten free because it is going to be processed in a different manufacturing facility that cannot be guaranteed to be free from cross contamination.  The newly processed Hamburger Helper will not have the ‘gluten free’ label, but will be labeled “may contain wheat”.

I never tried any of the varieties of gluten-free Hamburger Helper because the flavor options weren’t all that interesting to me, they were loaded with salt and it is frankly Read More »

One Dish, Three Meals – Mexican Style!

I have never viewed being on a gluten and dairy-free diet as restrictive. Of course there are many foods I can’t have, but there are many more foods I can enjoy. However, more so than I did before I went gluten-free I get in phases where I feel like I’m eating the same foods. This is especially true since I have had to restrict my diet even more due to acid reflux.

When my parents came up last time my mom brought me two 1lb containers of ground turkey. I had made a meatloaf with one and had been enjoying the frozen turkey burgers my mom had made, but with my last Read More »

One Grain More – Les Mis Food Allergy Parody

The Les Misérables food allergy parody that will knock your hypoallergenic socks off!

With the amazingly popular hit musical Les Miserables coming to theaters oh so soon (only 26 days, but who’s counting?!), I thought it would be appropriate to share this funny and amazing “One Grain More” video made by four people who are struggling to cook gluten free.  I loved the line, “This never ending road to gluten free,” boy does that seem true sometimes!

Orange Raspberry Blueberry Muffins Recipe

I once was in a shopping mall in California (Sears, I believe), and read a screen t-shirt that was soooo hilarious to me that I took a picture of it. It said (and I quote), “Muffins are just ugly cupcakes”. It had a picture of this beautifully conceited cupcake staring down its low-esteemed muffin companion.

I know – pretty mean – but I had to laugh!

Now of course, I view it as “Cupcakes are just pretty muffins with hats on”, but that is neither here nor there.DSC_0239-1

Panera Bread – Summer 2012 Updated Information

Kim Bouldin Gluten Free Works

After doing some behind-the-scenes work on my blog last week, I noticed that many people find my blog by searching for gluten-free Panera Bread information.  Panera Bread has offered gluten-free choices for years, but they have never had any gluten-free baked goods on the menu.  I emailed them last week to get the current list of their menu items that are free of gluten and will be sharing them below.  Since Panera Bread has predominantly bread items, there is a risk of cross-contamination.

This is the response I received from Panera: Read More »

Peanut Butter & Jelly Quesadilla Wrap Up!

By the title of this post, I am sure many of you are probably wondering what I have in store for you today, but trust me, it’s a good little invention on my part!

PB-J-Quesdilla-Wrap-up--1024x682

Lately I am trying to limit my consumption of gluten-free bread products; not with the intention to lose weight, but rather I have realized that I feel better when I keep it to a limit. However, being someone who is always at the gym I need carbs in my diet to reenergize.

The other day I really want a PB & J sandwich. My only problem was I didn’t Read More »

Perfect Shelf Stable Gluten-free Breakfast Item for Travel

Janes_Tiffany_Atlanta_GA

Most U.S. hotels do not offer gluten-free bread products for breakfast (or other meals). They might have bacon, eggs and potatoes but they are not likely to offer gluten-free muffins or waffles. It’s annoying to get a “free” breakfast that offers you only a piece of fruit, or if you’re lucky, a hard boiled egg.

sorrela_cinnamon_swirl_bagNow the search for the perfect shelf stable breakfast treat is over. Sorrella Bakery Biscotinnes are handmade gluten-free biscotti type cookies. They are crunchy but not as dense as regular biscotti. There are several flavors but we only tried the “Cinnamon Swirl” which is phenomenal. Read More »

Any idea what this monstrosity is?

Nope?

Better 4 U Pizza Gluten Free Dairy Free

Better4U Foods Roasted Vegetable Pizza
Credits: Better4U Foods

Every Wednesday I look forward to watching the weekly video of new product reviews from Phil Lempert, The Supermarket Guru, because usually at least one gluten-free product is included in each episode. After scoring a hit (85 and above) of an 88, this Examiner was very interested to sample the gluten-free pizza from Better 4U Foods.

Unfortunately I cannot tolerate dairy or soy and it is quite difficult to find a dairy/soy-free, gluten-free pizza. In steps Better 4U Foods with their dairy/soy free roasted vegetable pizza made with Daiya cheese and a multi-grain crust made with Read More »
