Product Alert: Pillsbury Funfetti Cake Mix (Gluten-Free)

Today when I was at Weis, I noticed that the Pillsbury Funfetti cake mixes are on sale:  two boxes for $4.  This is definitely a good price, and it's worth stocking up on these.  I had used this exact mix to make cupcakes for my kids for their birthdays recently. Additionally, I baked a cake with the mix tonight.  It's a beautiful mix that turns golden brown, has a great "not dense like other g-free products" texture, and tastes really good, too!

Product Alert: Gluten-Free French Fried Onions

Product Alert:  When I was at ALDI in Johnson City today, I saw these...and almost screamed! (HA...but, no, really...).  It looks like they are a Special Buy item, so get them while they can. A lot of times ALDI will use Special Buy items to gauge interest in a product before keeping it in stock on a regular basis. Well, I'm interested, and I hope they continue to sell these babies!

Pizza Hut in Johnson City, NY is NOT Going Away

I panicked the other day when I drove past the Pizza Hut in Johnson City and saw that their sign said that they were open until November. I called them.  Apparently, they are moving into the space right beside Metro Mattress and ONLY doing take-out. (WHEW!) I couldn't get confirmation yet on whether they will still carry their gluten-free pizza.  I hope they will, as my son and I love their pizza.  I'll let you know if I find out anything else...

Another Winner Made with a Gluten-Free Flour/Mix Substitute

Lately I've really been enjoying experimenting with the different one cup of this instead of one cup of wheat flour gluten-free flours on the market.  I also have been substituting gluten-free Bisquick for regular Bisquick in recipes, and it seems to be working out pretty well.


Starbucks' Gluten-Free Marshmallow Bars: A Nasty Rumor

Image from Starbucks.comLast night at Target, my daughter asked if I wanted some coffee over at the Starbucks counter. Considering that it was after 8 P.M., I didn't really want any coffee. However, when we got to the counter, I figured out why she really wanted to go over there:  she wanted one of the Gluten-Free Marshmallow Dream Bars.

Enjoy Life's All Purpose Gluten-Free Flour

Back when I became gluten-free, mixing gluten-free flours was all the rage.  In order to make any baked goods taste half decent, rice flour had to be balanced with a lighter and fluffier flour--or two or three or four flours.  Additionally, there had to be some kind of binding agent to hold everything together:  guar gum or xanthan gum.  Unfortunately for me, I don't like taking the time to do things like that!  I'm a busy mom who would rather just use ONE type of flour.


Gluten-Free Flour Blends have Transformed my Baking

I well remember the first few years that I was gluten-free.  What a struggle!  I felt better  so that was good. However, my entire "cooking/baking" world turned upside down. Suddenly, all of the recipes I had for doughs, breads, yummy desserts  tried and true  were suddenly off limits.

Enjoy Life's Pizza Crust Mix

Enjoy Life has done it again! The pizza crust mix is yet another exciting addition to the Enjoy Life products.  This mix, like all of the mixes, is free from the top eight allergens.  The ingredients are also GMO-free and contain probiotics.  I was impressed to see some wonderful and nutritious ingredients such as teff, millet, flaxseed, and sprouted brown rice protein.


Enjoy Life has a Brownie Mix--Yum!

I love Enjoy Life's new baking mixes.  Not only are they certified gluten-free, but they are also free from dairy, tree nuts, peanuts, egg, soy, fish, and shellfish.  Since one of my family members seems to be bothered by dairy recently, having a product that all of us can eat is just...well, amazing.


Enjoy Life's Muffin Mix

My family loves eating muffins for breakfast.  They are just quick and easy!  Enjoy Life has now made the process even easier.  With their muffin mix, I only need to add oil and water to the mix in order to get some yummy muffins for my family.  (Interestingly, the box said that the mix makes approximately ten muffins.  However, I was able to get twelve nice full-sized muffins from the mix with no problem!)
