As a teen who’s a college student, pizza is safely one of my favorite foods. It’s flexibility and easy assembly is a bonus for me as I often need quick-cooking meals that use the ingredients I have on hand.  When gluten-free giant Schar reached out to me to taste test their reformulated pizza crusts as a part of their gluten-free blogger team, I couldn’t say no to the possibility of […]

Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free Favorite Products: February

Ah February: the month of groundhogs, love, and all too soon comes to a end after 28 days.

Wholesome Chow Baking Mixes Review

When it comes to the art of gluten-free baking, let’s just say that my skills and expertise are a little lacking.

Since I’ve been on a baking kick this winter break, I have been sampling an array of recipes and mixes. A quick shopping trip to Target introduced me to the colorfully packaged baking mixes from Immaculate Baking Company. Finding the simple ingredient list and promise of no artificial preservatives or flavors irresistible, I grabbed a box each of their double chocolate and chocolate chip cookie mixes and put them aside for those times when […]

Easy Paleo Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins

Normally one to avoid sweets as I easily get debilitating sugar headaches when I eat too much, my recent surge of eating cookies, pies, and other treats this holiday season has rendered my sweet tooth a little out of control.  Now that the festivities and frivolities of the holidays have come and gone, I join the millions of other people who resolve to eat, live, and just be better in […]

MyBread Gluten Free Pita Review

Although I am gluten-free and cannot eat the majority of breads out there, people would be shocked to see that bread remains a staple of my diet. Ever on the search for breads beyond the simple sandwich variety seen so often on store shelves, I couldn’t wait to try MyBread, a gluten-free flatbread pita, when I spotted it on a recent Whole Foods run.
