Glow Cookies are Pefect for the Hollidays!

Last Christmas season I made my first Gingerbread house. I also watched my boyfriend eat a ton of gingerbread. I have to be honest, I don't think I have eaten gingerbread. Does that make me strange? Maybe.

Anyway, Glow Cookies has Gingersnap Cookies and they scream Holidays to me! I eat them with my tea and it makes me feel all warm and cozy! He can eat all of the gluten filled gingerbread he wants, I will take my preservative free, trans fat free glow cookies any day! It is a holiday in my mouth over here. Is that a Christmas tree glowing or is it me? I think these cookies make me happy! I do like Glow products!

These books have worked their way into my gluten free loving heart.  I wish the Steaphanie O'Dea book had more vegetarian recipies but the ones she does have are pretty good. Check these books out!

Schar's Italian Breadsticks

I think that Schar's Italian Breadsticks are my favorite in the Schar's line so far. My Son always asks for them and they are really crunchy. I like how many they give you in a pachage. I have eaten these with gluten free soups and pastas and they are a great addition to a meal.

Italian Summer Pasta Salad

Namaste Foods sent me some recipes to share with my readers so I am going to post them here and there on the blog...

Italian Summer Pasta Salad

  • 1 package Namaste Pasta Pisiavera Pasta
  • 5-6 table spoons olive oil in all (preferably extra virgin)
  • 1 teaspoon white or red wine vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup sun dried tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup artichoke hearts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup sliced black or green olives or both
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • Optional: a handful of chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
  1. Set aside the Pasta Pisavera seasoning packet. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until done, about 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain and rinse briefly in cold water to stop the cooking process.
  2. Place the pasta in a serving bowl, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and toss. Sprinkle the Pasta Pisavera Seasoning Packet over pasta add remaning ingredients and olive oil and toss gently. Garnish with the cilantro or parsley if desired. Dish is wonderful if served at room temperature or slightly chilled.
Helpful Hints:
Once refrigerated, rice pasta (like rice) can tend to get a bit crunchy. Either pull the pasta out ahead of time and leave out on the counter for a while or a quick minute or two in the microwave will do the trick. You can add a little bit more oil if needed too. Wonderful additions to this meal could be chopped zucchini, yellow squash, pine nuts, feta cheese, and marinated mushrooms!

Gluten Free Pantry French Bread & Pizza Mix

It doesn't matter if you are new to being gluten free or not,it is still probably hard to pass by the bakery or bread isle problem on some days. The smell of fresh bread still is especially hard. Sometimes I just want to grab a croissant and shove the buttery flavor in my mouth knowing that it would cause me to have  dash into the bathroom, because  it will ultimately lead to being glutened and me crying on the toilet! Who am I kidding? Sometimes having to lead a GF lifestyle sucks.  So I have to resist all of those amazing foods in the bakery and  and search for equally amazing gluten free products. Most of the time I can find awesome products and I let you, my wonderful readers know about them.

It really sucks when I have high hopes for a product and it lets me down. I cannot tell you how badly I wanted the French Bread & Pizza Mix from Gluten Free Pantry to be delicious but I cannot lie, it sucked. It did not rise well. It was not fluffy like French Bread is, so it did not have the potential to make an amazing sandwich that I had been dreaming up. I was pretty bummed out.

This product will never be purchased again. Ever. I am still on the quest for GF French Bread. Anyone know where I can find that?

Schar's Chocolate Sandwich Cremes & Vanilla Sandwich Cremes

I dont have time to find a picture from the website or take my own photo but I wanted tell you about Schar's Chocolate Sandwich Cremes & Vanilla Sandwich Cremes. They are pretty tasty. I think I prefer the vanilla ones to the chocolate which surprises me because I adore chocolate. Have you tried these? Have you tried Schar's products?

Amy's Indian Matter Paneer

This is in my top favorite Amy meals since I am a vegetarian. It fits most of my needs and it is delicious! What more can a gal ask for?!

Sunday, September 5, 2010


Let me fill you in on a two secrets.
  1. I have been hating gluten free eating for a while. If you follow me on Twitter, you would know this because I have been doing my share of complaining. I have been finding it hard to eat out or go grocery shopping. Being vegetarian and gluten-free is not always the easiest thing.Last night, I had nothing to complain about!
  2. Most of my posts on this blog are post-dated. I am a very busy lady, so if I try a food that I want to let you know about, I usually will write about a whole bunch of them all at once.Then,I scatter the posts so you guys wont think I am neglectful. However, I went to Nourish last night for my birthday and I was so amazed that I had to blog ASAP!
 I have heard amazing reviews in the local (Arizona) gluten free community about Nourish. Then my Mom suggested going there for my birthday. I was totally game!

The atmosphere is beautiful. The restaurant is surrounded by lush greenery. I did not feel like I was eating in Arizona at all. When we walked in, we were greeted so warmly that I felt instantly comfortable. Then when we were handed our menu, the server asked if we had any food intolerances or food allergies that he needed to be aware of! SCORE! How often are you asked this at a restaurant? Never. I can honestly say that I have never in my life been asked this. At this time, I informed the server that I had Celiacs. I did not get a weird look. I did not get asked questions like, " Can you have cheese? Are mushrooms OK? "Great, let me bring you some bread!" No, this guy knew exactly what I was talking about. I felt like everyone at Nourish would know what I was talking about because they flat out asked me, I never once had to tell anyone.

Also, the menu won my heart. Each item is labeled and it lets you know if it is gluten free, lactose free, vegetarian, or vegan. This made it easy for me to choose my meal. I would look for the symbols and choose accordingly. The menu was also healthy, unique and delicious. I have to go back and try more.

While we were seated, Kirstin Carey, the owner, came and chatted with us. She was so impressive, I was blown away with her kindness and her willingness to talk to me. She cannot eat wheat. We discussed her kitchen and how it is a gluten free kitchen. We talked in depth about what processes she utilizes to keep it from being cross contaminated with the breads they do serve. By the way, they serve amazing gluten free bread. The picture above was my dinner. It was delicious. I ordered the Optima and I would have never known the bread was GF. 

I know I will go back. I know that I will never have to fear cross-contamination there and that my service will always be amazing. Cheers and success to my new favorite restaurant!

Tandoor Chef: Vegetable Pad Thai

I love this dinner.It has a kick of spice and it is easy to make when I am tired from a long day and my son already has something already prepared. I thought I would tell you all about it! So, if you see it in your local freezer section, pick it up and try it! Let me know what you think of it :)

Kinnikinnick S'moreables!

Summertime makes me think of a few foods...hot dogs (but I don't eat meat), beer (but I don't drink) and s'mores. Many of us think that s'mores are not an option because gram crackers are well, gluten filled time bombs for our intestines. Think again, we now can indulge because Kinnikinnick has made it possible with S'moreables! Summer is almost over...go out and buy a box! Indulge!

Schar's Chocolate- Dipped Chookies

I was super excited about trying out Schar's Chocolate Dipped Cookies. Schar's products are number one in Europe,  I thought eating them would make me feel fancy. However, the first bite was so buttery that I thought Paula Deen snuck her Southern ass all the way over to this dedicated gluten free kitchen. This light buttery taste found its way into every bite of each cookie. But, the gluten that I am still devoured the whole box. Because, well, I liked the cookies...but they were not my absolute favorite.

Namaste Foods Taco Pasta!

Amy's Spinach Rice Crust Pizza

I made Amy's rice crust spinach pizza recently and the only complaint I had was that the picture is a bit deciving...not nearly enough cheese...
That does not look the same does it? So, I had to spruce it up! Once I loaded it up with cheese I was a happy camper! If you want a pretty yummy spinach pizza, try this one!

Kinnikinnick Personal Size Pizza Crusts!

OH MY! I love these! I cannot talk these up enough. These have become my life savers. I always have tomato sauce and cheese in my house and it has become a lot of fun to figure out what toppings I have around the house.

I had a friend come over for dinner that was not gluten free and she told me she would pick this pizza over a "traditional" pizza any day! It made me smile from ear to ear!

Here are my two favorite ways to make this pizza!

Cheese and broccoli:
Pizza with three types of cheese:
Have you tried this yet? What would you put on your personal pizza?

Bisquick Gluten Free Pancake and Baking Mix

I have become a snob.A pancake/ waffle mix snob that is. I was stoked when I saw this on the grocery shelf and I was dancing in the kitchen when I was cooking this because Bisquick diving into the gluten free foods world is good for the community...or so I thought. However, when I tried the mix, I realized what a snob I have become...I hated the mix. It isn't that it is horrid but I have had better. Betty Crocker and General Mills are all companies that are now known for entering the gluten free market with good tasting products, I expected the same of Bisquick.  There are amazing companies that are soley GF that do it better!

What I made using Bob's Red Mill Quick Cooking Oats..

These oats are so yummy. If you have not discovered them, I suggest you go out and purchase them because they are simply amazing. I was eating this for breakfast for a while with blueberries and brown sugar. It was so incredible that my mouth is salivating just thinking about it.

I loved these Bob's Red Mill oats so much that I started thinking about what else I could use the oats for. Then I was reminded of a recipe that my Grandma would make for me. I searched for it and I found it online, here.

Amazing. Even better than the run of the mill oatmeal for breakfast! Everything is better when you add chocolate and peanut butter to it!

Have you guys ever made these cookies? What did you think? Do you like Bob's Red Mill products?

Sweet Health Cookies!

Check out these amazing cookies! Sweet Health Cookies. These cookies are SUGAR FREE! They are sweetened with Lo Han, not to be confused with the non-sweet, celeb serving time right now in a  CA prison, no...no relation. Click HERE, to learn more about Lo Han.
I have to be honest, as a total sugar addicted glutton, I was nervous to try these. I LOVE sugar. I love sugar too much. I have been struggling with my love of sugar actually. I have been cutting back on my sugar intake lately because I have diabetes in my family and my Aunt who has diabetes has shown me what it can do to if one does not take care of it properly. But, it makes me aware. It makes me aware to treat my body with respect. So, I now try to only eat badly if I am reviewing products for the blog or if I really want to treat myself.

Luckily, Sweet Health Cookies are healthy. They are not only gluten free but also casein free. As I mentioned, they are diabetic friendly too! I tried two varieties, the Snickerdoodle and the Lemon Bliss. I liked the Lemon Bliss more than the Snickerdoodle. They also use organic products. I feel not only confident in their products but also like I am not cheating on my diet when I eat them.  I would feel happy taking a bag of these to my Aunt and not feel like I was taking her something that was harmful to her health.

I highly recommend these! Especially the Lemon Bliss!

Gits: Matar Paneer

I had high hopes for this meal. It was too spicy (it claimed to be of a medium spice level) and was too runny. Maybe if I would have put rice in it or something. Sometimes finding new and exciting GF vegetarian meals can be challenging. I would have to label this a FOOD FAIL.

Nothing is better than cookies when you want a late night snack, well, cookies with a nice cold glass of milk! I have discovered my new favorites...

I highly suggest that you try Glow Cookies! They are not only gluten free but also dairy free and also free of trans fats! Eating them is a healthier alternative that will simply make you glow!

Can new packaging really help a product?

I believe that new packaging can totally help a product. Such is the case for Kinnikinnick chocolate donuts. When I first tried the donuts they were packaged like this...

Well, it was functional in the bag because the donuts were contained but the donuts were touching and they got stuck together. When they are frozen, this becomes a total hassle.

Kinnikinnick then repackaged and I am so pleased!

No more donuts melted into each other! The donuts look so put together and this box fits much nicer into my freezer. The product always tasted great but the improvement on the packaging has made me love it so much more!

My favorite snack at the moment...

About a year ago, I posted my favorite portable snack. This is my favorite snack to eat at home. I sometimes eat it for lunch or dinner too if I am feeling too lazy to cook for myself. I love hummus and cucumbers! It is good for you and you are saving a ton of carbohydrates by not using chips or pita (if we could eat pita).

What is your favorite snack to eat at home?

Kinnikinnick Bagels

I love bagels and I have to tell you, my first experience with this bagel was not love at first bite. I took the bagel out of the freezer, microwaved for 15 seconds, cut the bagel in half and toasted the bagel in my GF toaster. Then I loaded the bagel with cream cheese and I expected a taste explosion in my mouth...instead the bagel was still slightly cold on the inside and lacked "WOW" factor I associate with Kinnikinnick products.

I didn't give up, I figured this was error on my part and I was right. On my second try, I microwaved for 20 seconds, cut in half and toasted twice! Much better. The bagel was still not as delicious as a non-gluten free bagel but I am thankful for the Kinnikinnick option.

What do you guys think? Have you tried the Kinnikinnick bagels?

Namaste Foods: Chocolate Cake Cupcakes & My First Giveaway!

I have made my fair share of gluten free cakes, so I would have to say that it takes a lot to impress me. Namaste Foods has a Chocolate Cake Mix that calls out to the chocoholic in all of us. Plus, if you glance at the label, it is a safe bet that it fits your dietary needs because of all of the allergens it is not using in its products. I know a lot of people that are not only Celiac but are also allergic to soy or corn and this product is safe and delicious for them to consume.

The cake mix itself is very easy to make. I made cupcakes...of course...with homemade lemon frosting.
The mix made a ton, about 30 of them! I was in cupcake heaven. I didn't expect to be wowed though, like I said, I have made a lot of cakes in my day. But, I was WRONG. This gluten free cake did not even taste gluten free. I easily was able to pick it up with out the cupcake crumbling in my hands. The taste was airy and moist. I took some of the cupcakes to my Boyfriend's house to serve and didn't tell anyone they were gluten free and no one even knew. That is how amazing these are!

The amazing folks at Namaste are hosting a giveaway right here on the blog! So, if you want to try the mix for yourself, please enter! You will not be disappointed...

Happy Fourth And A GF Road Trip Love Story...

FIRST-I wanted to wish you all a HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY.

SECOND- It is my anniversary with my Non Gluten Free BF. This is us last 4th of July!

THIRD- I wanted to share a story with you all about a gluten free road trip that Steve and I took last August because I had been craving eclairs and we finally found a place that carried them (thanks to my BFF Stephanie).

This is what I wrote on my other blog (now private) about the road trip...

Steve and I went to Fountain Hills to get gluten free eclairs. Yes, that is right...we were willing to drive miles and miles so I could get the food that I have been lusting after for over a year now. I have to say thank you to Stephanie for telling me about Nature's Finest because they carry the eclairs!

Anyway, Steve is always playing awesome music for me. Today we listened to Looner, a really good band and they are also friends of his. You guys should check them out because they are really good!

When we got there, we meant business! We went straight to the health food store!

The store had a ton of gluten free items! It was worth the drive!

It was Steve's first time

Steve...being observant...of the fountain...and the hills!

Those eclairs...they were so good!!!!!!!

This trip was awesome! I loved going with Steve! He is great company! I adore every moment I spend with him.

FOURTH- I would like to add... that Nature's Finest did have a bunch of Gluten Free Products. So, if you are ever in the Fountain's Hills area, you should check them out!

FIFTH- Road trips for GF food with the one you love makes the GF food taste much sweeter.

How to make homemade pancakes fluffier & my thoughts on a mix..

Buttermilk. It is a good way to make pancakes fluffier and I think yummy. I just started doing this and I totally notice a difference. When a mix says milk, I substitute low fat buttermilk and I think it helps!

Now, for my thoughts on this mix...I could take it or I could leave it. It is a good mix but there isn't a WOW factor. I think I prefer the Trader Joe's Mix to it actually.

Katz Gluten Free Chocolate Rugelech

I was born in NY and spent a bit of my youth there. I am very familiar with rugelech. I have never had GF rugelech and I have to tell you that Katz did it right. I was transported back to my NY roots and I no longer feel like scouring the net for recipes on how to make it since I know where I can get some GF style if I get a craving for some. Thank you Katz for having some great GF options. Check out all of Katz foods line here. I loved the chocolate rugelech, they also have a cinnamon version too (it is my freezer now...review to come soon!). The chocolate was the perfect amount, it didn't become overwhelming, this is coming from a chocoholic.

My only complaint is with the serving size and this I have noticed with all of Katz's products. The serving size is 1 oz. That is very hard to tell if you are eating these out of the house or if you do not have a scale in the house. There are 6 servings per container but still. I am a foodie and a total over eater...I need clear food boundaries with yummy products...give me clear rules or I will eat something this delicious in one sitting. So, if I am struggling this hard to find something hard to say about Katz then I guess it is good :)

Trader Joe's Gluten Free & Dairy Free Homestyle Pancakes

I have been on a total pancake/ waffle kick with my son. I think my obsession is mainly based because I can load up pancakes with berries, bananas and raisins and we are starting our day off right. My new favorite is not a mix but a box with makes it totally easy because sometimes I don't have time in the morning to deal with the hassle of mixes. Trader Joe's has a GF and Dairy Free box available in their freezer section. My favorite part is that they come wrapped already packaged according to serving size. The picture shows the serving size (3 pancakes with syrup and raspberries) This breakfast is awesome!

Glutino: Cinnamon French Toast

I got so excited when I saw these at my grocery store! I have been longing for french toast for a while and I love Glutino products so I knew that I had to pick these up. It was the first time ever that my son and I both ate French Toast at breakfast together!

While I did really enjoy the product, it was slightly rubbery at first so I had to add more syrup to it and then it was perfect!

If you guys are hankering for french toast, pick up Glutino Cinnamon French Toast!

Katz Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sorry that my picture is not wonderful but that is no reflection on the cookies whatsoever. These are hands down the best gluten free chocolate chip cookies I have had. When they ship to your door (how easy is that?) you freeze them till you are ready to enjoy them. All you have to do is thaw them... I have to be honest; I was hesitant of these cookies because I was worried that they wouldn't taste good because they were frozen. Some frozen foods do not that taste as good when they are freshly baked. Do not let that throw you off, I was mistaken. These cookies taste like soft baked cookies! I could not stop eating them and now I am dying for more! I love soft bake cookies and I have not been able to find them since I have gone GF. I am not sure if they are meant to be soft bake tasting or not but I love these cookies!

These cookies are not just gluten free but also dairy free and nut free too! Katz Gluten Free sure knows how to make amazing gluten free chocolate chip cookies.

Kinnikinnick Tapioca Rice Cinnamon Buns

These were AH-MAZING! I added a bit more frosting because after all I am a glutton an I love frosting on my cinnamon rolls! I have been craving cinnamon rolls so badly that I have been asking around on Twitter for them.

I put the extra frosting on and heated these for 20 seconds in the microwave and I indulged in amazing cinnamon bun goodness. These totally hit the spot! Thank you Kinnikinnick for helping me get my fix!

Peas Of Mind: Baked Carrot Fries

Fat Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan and Soy Free- A ton of people can enjoy these Baked Carrot Fries!

As a Mom, I am constantly looking for healthier versions of my son's favorite foods. When I spotted these Carrot Fries by Peas Of Mind, I jumped for joy! One bag has NINE servings of vegetables and it is a wonderful source of Vitamin A...now that sounds like a real winner.

When I made these for my son for the first time, I was worried he would notice these were not like the fries I had purchased before, but he ate them up. Frankly, so did I.

Have you tried Peas Of Mind products? What do you think of them?

Kinnikinnick: Kinni Kritters Animal Cookies

Do not let the name fool you, these do not taste like average animal cookies. They have a light vanilla flavor that makes these more sophisticated than the animal cookies that I ate during my youth and the animals look cooler too. My best friend and fellow GF Blogger, GF Steph, LOVES these too! In fact, she got me hooked on them!They are so delicious that I sometimes take them in the car with me in case I am in a jam and there is no gluten free food options for me.

Aside from being GF, they are also nut free and dairy free!
