We’re always on the lookout for products that make life easier. My wife, Sally, just found this McCormick’s Simply Better Beef Gravy at our local Publix supermarket. She found this one on the clearance rack, but it seems to sell online for around $2.59. Here is my review of the ingredients, texture, and taste.

Back 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.

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 »

[EDITOR’S NOTE: AS OF APRIL 20, 2017, ALL PILLSBURY GLUTEN-FREE PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED. THE REPRESENTATIVE SAID THE GLUTEN-FREE LINE WAS DISCONTINUED. THE SHELF LIFE WAS 93 DAYS, WHICH WAS NOT LONG ENOUGH GIVEN SALES. THEY HOPE TO MAKE FROZEN PRODUCTS AVAILABLE IN THE FUTURE.]
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 »
Trader Joe’s has added to its ever growing line of gluten-free products with the recent addition of gluten-free Joe-Joe’s, or cream filled chocolate cookies.

A good gluten-free pizza crust can be hard to find. Sure, there are a variety of options out there these days, but it can be difficult to find a brand that is decently priced but doesn’t taste like cardboard.
I am happy to say that I have found a pizza dough mix that is reasonably priced, not too difficult to make, and tastes wonderful. There is no questioning that kitch+table pizza dough mix will please your palate. As the package states, incredibly easy and so crazy good that you may not believe it’s actually gluten-free. No false advertisement there. That statement is 100% the truth.
I had a kitch+table baking night this past weekend and my taste-buds had the time of their life. The plan was to make the kitch+table pizza dough for dinner and then the brownie mix for dessert. I mixed up the Read More »
There was definitely a lot to take in at Expo West in Anaheim, CA. This year’s event saw record attendance of 63,000 industry members and 2,428 exhibiting companies. Needless to say, that is a lot of ground to cover in three days, but I did my best.
I thought this year I would let you know about my favorite products found at the event, and then follow up with a more thorough article of all of the notable gluten-free products. Here are my top gluten-free picks in alphabetical order: Read More »
