I got 12 waffles out of Cherrybrook Kitchen Gluten-Free and Wheat-Free Pancake & Waffle Mix, even though the box said 9 waffles for 3 cups of mix. They tasted amazing, just as good as the waffle mix from Maple Grove Farms. After I go through some more mixes from the pantry, I’ll try the mixes I’ve found in gluten-free cookbooks.
My friend and I made Cajun Mac N Cheese. I grew up with Kraft Mac N Cheese, but I don’t eat it anymore, especially with a gluten intolerance. Although one summer in college I did try Stouffer’s Mac N Cheese. I decided to not go out of my way for Mac N Cheese. Even though it isn’t one of my favorite dishes, I couldn’t help trying a fancy gluten-free version.
We cooked the Organic Gluten Free Elbows from Bionature. I was thrilled that none of the noodles stuck to the pan! Then in a skillet we sautéed onions in oil, added the mushrooms and green pepper. We added the tomatoes and spinach last.
In a separate pan, we created a roux (melt butter, add 2 TBSP of white rice flour), then add a cup and a half of milk. Whisk often until it has a creamy consistency, then add in shredded cheese, like sharp cheddar and Colby Jack.
Add Cajun spices and smoked paprika to the veggies and to the sauce. Drain the pasta. Combine sauce, pasta, and veggies. Then serve!
When I was a kid, I loved Cinnamon Toast Crunch. And with a gluten-free diet, that is out of the question. Even though I didn’t find a cereal replacement, these crackers bring back the old days of dipping into the cereal box for a sugary treat.
I tried these Quinoa Crispbreads and fell in love with them. They taste great with hummus, salsa, and ranch dip! Definitely want to try these with a bruschetta topping.
I found Pecan Shortbread Gluten-Free Cookies at Meijer. I was very pleased with the buttery taste and the surprise of pecans. This box didn’t last long.
I tried a new noodle. I found Schar’s Fusilli noodles at Whole Foods. It was amazing! Click here for more pasta options.
I found this video on YouTube, and it inspired me to attempt my own gluten-free version of this Captain America Cake.
Now that I purchased a cake leveler and a turntable, I am going to try again. I didn’t split the red, white, and blue evenly. This time, I’ll use two boxes of King Arthur Yellow Cake Mix instead of one. Hint: The difference between yellow cake and white cake is egg yolks. If you want a white cake, only add egg whites. I added an extra egg white because I didn’t add the yolks.
Will keep you updated on my next attempt!
While I was at Whole Foods, I picked up Happy Pho brown rice noodles. I tried the stir fry with fresh spinach and the sauce packet, but it was not an instant favorite. I do look forward to trying the noodles again with my favorite stir fry recipe.
