Tasty Bite: Thai Lime Rice

I have a few Tasty Bite packages in my pantry right now for one simple reason...convenience. It is fast and easy...not to mention tasty. The other day I needed a side to go with lunch for the baby and I. I made the Thai Lime Rice and we both ate it and enjoyed it. It was not spicy and the coconut lime flavor was not overwhelming. It was the perfect addition to our chicken.

I did my best. I did. I am no longer GFCF though. I missed food too much and I didn't notice any significant change in Blaine so I stopped it a few days ago. I am so glad I can eat my old favorites again!

Mina's Purely Divine Chocolate Cake Mix

I have been sitting on this review for a while...mainly, because I really dislike giving bad reviews. But, this product earned it. I used Mina's Purely Divine Chocolate Cake Mix to make GFCF cupcakes for Blaine's first birthday party. I sampled one the day prior to the party when I baked them and they were so gross that I was relieved I made a non-gfcf cake for our guests. I would have been mortified to serve this cake to them. I have had so many delicious GFCF products that put this mix to shame.

I will say that Blaine did love his cupcake. I have to keep that in perspective though. Blaine had never had a cupcake before. He didn't know how mouth watering awesome they should be.

I do have other Mina's products to sample and I hope that they are good.  I love that there are so many gluten free companies out there and I want to support our community, not bash it. I hope my next Mina's review doesn't leave me with a sour taste in my mouth!
