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 »

Gluten Free Pizza Crust Monstrosity

Any idea what this monstrosity is?

Nope?

This one should be easier:

Gluten Free Pizza Crust Venerdis

That’s right. They’re both pizza bases.

Gluten Free Pizza Base

It tastes great, really...if only I could get it off the paper!

I know what you’re thinking. “How on earth did she manage to make such horrible looking pizza bases?” Read More »

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 »

Product Review: Gluten-free Cheese Crackers

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!

Product Review: Joan’s Gluten-free Great Bakes English Muffins

I have tasted some of Joan’s GF Great Bakes products and reviewed them a while back, but I hadn’t had the chance to sample the English muffin. I was tweeting last week with another gluten-free friend, Jen, & she mentioned how much she loved Joan’s English muffins. She went on to say that they were her favorite gluten-free English muffin. That was all I needed to hear. I usually buy Trader Joe’s French rolls or Kinnikinnick’s English Muffins, as they are much less expensive. Read More »

Product Review: Luce’s Gluten Free Artisan Bread Mix is a Revelation

I really thought it was a joke when I heard about Luce’s Gluten-Free Artisan Bread mixes. I mean how could a bread mix that doesn’t require you to activate yeast, or let it proof really work? To produce an artisan loaf of bread, all you add is water, then stir, and bake, which sounds way too simple to actually work. I don’t know how they did it, but this mix produces gluten-free bread with a crispy crust and a soft, moist middle that is quite easy to make.

pilsbury choc chip gluten free

When I was first diagnosed with celiac disease the first thing I thought about missing was chocolate chip cookies. My grammy made the most incredible chocolate chip cookies and the thought of not being able to eat them made me sad, so I began my quest to make gluten-free chocolate chip cookies just like grammy’s, and I didn’t stop until I succeeded. When Pillsbury introduced their chocolate chip cookie dough, I thought there was no way they could be as good as my grammy’s, but I was wrong. Read More »

Product Review: So Delicious Dairy Free CocoWhip Is the Tops

So Delicious Dairy Free Coco WhipBack in the day it was impossible to keep a tub of Cool Whip in the house because it was irresistible to me plain (on the end of my finger) or on top of pudding, cake, pie, and ice cream. It wasn’t until later in life that ingredient choices became an issue and my beloved Cool Whip was deemed unsuitable. Tears were shed as a chapter of my life came to a close and desserts were no longer topped until So Delicious Dairy Free introduced CocoWhip.

CocoWhip, available in Original and Light, is made from organic coconut milk, it is naturally sweetened, and contains no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors. It is certified gluten free, vegan, and kosher parve, and Non-GMO Verified. CocoWhip ingredients are: Read More »
