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 »
