Ardenne Farm Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin, Pumpkin Streusel Muffin, & Snickerdoodle Mixes Review

Ardenne Farm is one of my favorite gluten-free companies, because their fool-proof mixes always yield gloriously delicious and crowd-pleasing baked goods. Whenever I serve up sweets to my friends or family, usually the “secret recipe” is Ardenne Farm’s mix.  The company’s three newest mixes are their lemon poppy seed muffins, pumpkin streusel muffins, and snickerdoodle cookies. All three are gluten-free and vegan, which makes accommodating multiple allergens less of a headache. As the temperature […]

By The Way Bakery Review

My recent New York City trip was the third trip I have made to Manhattan since going gluten-free. Due to the limited nature of each trip, I was not able to seek out a gluten-free bakery until now, when I wandered into By The Way Bakery in the Upper West Side.  I knew By The Way Bakery was 100% gluten-free, but I was downright giddy when I found out they were 100% […]

Heritage Bakery & Cafe Review

At the eleventh hour, my Thanksgiving travel plans changed because I felt like I was beginning to succumb to oncoming sickness. Instead of flying to North Carolina for the holiday, my mom and I jumped in the car and drove from Baltimore down to avoid the hassle of fighting the stress of flying.  We stayed overnight in Virginia, and when looking for breakfast the next day, I zeroed in on Heritage […]

The Happy Tart Review

As much as I eat out, dedicated gluten-free bakeries are relatively rare discoveries, as there are not an abundance in the Baltimore-D.C. area. While staying in Tysons Corner, VA for my recent D.C. trip, I was excited to see that I was in close proximity to Falls Church location of The Happy Tart, a dedicated gluten-free patisserie that I first found out about through a rave review from Alexis at […]

2016 Washington D.C. Gluten-Free Expo Recap (Giveaway)

As a gluten and dairy-free blogger, I think of gluten-free expos as fun holidays where I can mingle with brands and fellow gluten-free foodies alike. While industry shows have a lot more going on, local expos are consumer-focused and showcase gluten-free resources in the area.  Last week, I attended the Washington, D.C. Gluten-Free Expo, hosted at the DoubleTree in Bethesda, Maryland. The event, now in its sixth year, is sponsored by the […]

April Baking Month: Eatpastry Muffin and Biscuit Mix

When it comes to special diet baking, the more accommodating, the better in my book. Not only do I look for mixes that are gluten and dairy-free, but also seek out ones that are vegan, non-GMO, or multiple allergen-free so that I can share my treats with friends who have various dietary restrictions. I reviewed EatPastry’s chocolate cake mix last month, showcasing it despite the fact that the mix has been […]

April Baking Month: Scratch and Grain Honey Cornbread Mix

As much as I love discovering new baking mixes out on the market, I really love when brands I already know and love expand their gluten-free offerings. Such is the case with Scratch and Grain Baking Company.  I previously have reviewed their gluten-free cookie mixes (link here) and really loved their novel approach to baking. With all the convenience of a prepackaged mix but the step-by-step methodology of from-scratch baking, […]

Enjoy Life Foods Muffin Mix Review

This review is part of my coverage of the launch of Enjoy Life Foods’ new line of allergen-free baking mixes. For more information about them, click here. If you have followed my blog over the last month, you’ve probably picked up on the fact that I have been trying out Enjoy Life Foods’ new gluten-free, vegan, allergen-free baking mixes. Last, but not least of the four baking mixes, is the muffin […]

Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-Free Bread Review and Giveaway

Canyon Bakehouse is one of those companies that just gets “gluten-free” right and does it in spectacular fashion.  Dedicated bakehouse? Check.  Dairy-free products? Double check. Bread that authentically tastes and feels “real”? Check, check, and check again. While I’ve been able to sample the rosemary and thyme focaccia and both varieties of bagels before, I have not explored their back catalog of breads in all shapes and sizes. I jumped at the opportunity […]

Sweet Theory Baking Company Follow-Up Review

Note: I have visited Sweet Theory before (read review here). If you’re passing in or out of Central Florida by way of Jacksonville, Sweet Theory Baking Co. is without a doubt a must-do destination. This all around allergy friendly bakery serves up some of the most decadent, mouth-watering treats I’ve found in my quest to find the most incredible gluten-free bakeries in this country.  As I made my way from Maryland to […]
