Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Mix

Yes, I’m still in the process of clearing out my pantry and using up the gluten-free flours/mixes I bought on sale, including a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Mix.

Pizza is one of the foods I miss most since going gluten-free, and while places like Mellow Mushroom offer really good gluten-free pizza options, they cost a small fortune. So it’s not something I can afford to have every weekend. Or even once a month. Continue reading »

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls

I’m still working on clearing out old expired stuff from my kitchen, and I finally found a use for my King Arthur Gluten Free Multi-Purpose Flour that had a sell by date of January 2013. I wasn’t all that keen to make the popover recipe on the back of the box, so I ventured to the company website for further inspiration, and I’m glad I did because it has a good selection of recipes. That’s where I found this one for gluten-free cinnamon rolls. Continue reading »

Simply Organic Gluten Free Carrot Cake Mix

When I saw that Kroger had Simply Organic Gluten Free Carrot Cake Mix on closeout a few weeks ago, I snatched up a box for next to nothing. Now I wish I’d bought two, because I’d really like to try the bonus recipe on the side of the box, and I can’t find a store that still has any in stock. Continue reading »

Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Bread MixIt has been too long since I last updated this blog, and for that I apologize. The summer has slipped away from me while I’ve been happily distracted with other things.

I plan to continue with my “Cake Blogging 101” series, as I have a few more topics I’d like to cover, and in a week I’ll be in Lexington, KY for the ICES Annual Convention. I’m packing my Chromebook and will have my iPhone, so if you follow me on Instagram, look forward to photos and maybe even some video clips. But for now, here’s the review for that gluten-free bread mix I used over a month ago. Finally. Continue reading »

Pamela's Gluten Free Cornbread Mix
I love cornbread, and even though it’s not at all difficult to make from scratch, I decided to try some Pamela’s Gluten-Free Cornbread Mix when I saw that it was on sale. When I mixed and baked this cornbread the first time, I was not impressed. The muffins were thick, dry, heavy, and tasted more like grits than cornbread. Continue reading »

Gluten Free Pantry Favorite Sandwich Bread Mix ReviewBack before going gluten-free, I ate a LOT of bread and craved starchy carbs often. Since giving up the gluten, I find that I don’t need bread, but every so often I still enjoy having it. I particularly miss cheese and Branston Pickle sandwiches and cinnamon toast. Unfortunately, gluten free stuff can be really expensive, and it rarely seems to go on sale, but I recently picked up a box of Gluten Free Pantry’s Favorite Sandwich Bread Mix at a decent price.

Honeyville Blanched Almond FlourI’m a huge fan of almond flour and use it often. It’s a fantastic high-protein, grain-free ingredient, and it makes terrific gluten-free baked goods. All of the recipes in one of my favorite gluten-free cookbooks (Elana Amsterdam’s Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook) call for blanched almond flour, which I initially had trouble finding. Despite the book’s warning, I tried to make cookies with some leftover almond meal I found in my pantry, but they were a disaster. The flour and oil separated and made a nasty, runny, gooey, disgusting mess, so I didn’t post it on here, but now I wish I had. Continue reading »

Betty Crocker Gluten-Free Cake Mix ReviewIf you didn’t already know, Betty Crocker does gluten-free cake, cookie, and brownie mixes now. Actually, these have been around for a while, but I’m honestly not a fan of Betty Crocker. Or cake mixes in general for that matter. But if I have to use a cake mix, I’m more than likely not going to eat it, so I usually go for Duncan Hines if it’s on sale or Pillsbury, whichever is cheaper. Continue reading »

Here’s something new and exciting! Well, actually the My Memories digital scrapbooking software has been around for a while, but I only just recently found out about it, so it’s new to me. Years ago I tried to get into the scrapbook craze, but that was back when I had a lot of photographs. When we got a digital camera, I no longer had actual prints to work with because my photos were either on a memory card or my computer. Continue reading »

Namaste Foods Gluten Free Bread Mix ReviewRecently I made a loaf of bread using a bag of Namaste Foods Gluten Free Bread Mix. I bought this on sale at some point, and it subsequently sat in the pantry for a while. I’m not sure how long, but there’s another 8 months to go until the use-by date, so I’m not worried.
