Favorite Find Friday – Make-up

by

I am super excited about this make-up that I have found.  It is all natural and gluten free!  I know some people don’t realize that there is gluten in make-up, many beauty products, shampoo, conditioner, it can even be in toothpaste.  I have been searching for make-up that is gluten free and I found this place:

What I loved the most is you can get FREE samples of make-up.  You have to pay a very small reasonable s/h fee, but it was totally worth it, they give you a very generous amount to work with so you can use it for several times and see how the make-up works for you.

If you decide to order, please order through the links on this page, I will receive a small commission off of all sales.

Favorite Find Friday – Bread Pan

by

When making GF bread it is really important to have a good pan.  Without gluten the bread can’t hold itself up very well, so if you have a pan that has higher sides, I’ve found this to be the best.  The pan I like the best are the ones my friend gave me, they are Norpro 10″ Nonstick Bread Pan.  I saw them online here for a reasonable price, not sure of shipping though.


This picture kind of makes the loaf pan look small but it is a 10″ X 4 1/2″ X 3″  pan.  It’s not a huge loaf but my recipe for Challah Bread will make two of this size loaves.

Favorite Find Friday-Bouillon

by

This is another in the long list of things I avoided after going GF.  I couldn’t find any chicken bouillon that was GF and didn’t really pursue it heavily.  My mom gave me this jar not to long ago and I had forgotten how much I like to use it.  I will add a little (maybe 1/4-1/2 teaspoon) to gravy and to my peas, anywhere you want just a little add oomph of flavor.  I didn’t realize how much I missed it.

This is the one my mom gave me.

Favorite Find Friday – Gluten Free Soy Sauce

by

Favorite Find Friday2When I first changed to a GF diet, I was a little shocked by the price tag on the Tamari I had to purchase in lieu of soy sauce.   In the beginning we didn’t enjoy many recipes that included soy sauce.  Then my friend told me about La Choy, I was thrilled!  Tamari around $8 a bottle and La Choy Soy Sauce around $1.50 a bottle.  HUGE difference.

Favorite Find Friday – Cookies

by

Cookies!


Another thing I miss since going GF is graham crackers.  Cinnamon ones, to be specific.  I was on the search for something to make s’mores with and found a winner with these Enjoy Life Vanilla Honey Graham Crunchy Cookies.

I used them to make s’mores.  I used them for crust.  Ate them just as a cookie.  I made them into ice cream sandwiches.  Yum!

I ended up ordering them from Amazon.com.  I had a hard time finding them locally.   The price on Amazon was a good one too.

Oh and by the way, you don’t need a fire to make s’mores!  Check out this post for quick and easy indoor s’mores.

Favorite Find Friday- Pasta

by

 Pasta! 


I think my favorite pasta is Tinkyada pasta.  I get this when I can find it for a good price most of the time.  This runs anywhere from $4-$5 per 12-16 oz.  This is a brown rice pasta. 

But, a little bit more budget friendly, is my second favorite and that is Sam Mills Pasta d’oro.  You can get it for about $2 for 16oz. This is a no GMO corn pasta.  It holds up pretty well and doesn’t fall apart, which is important.


Grab a bag of pasta and a cookbook and cook up some Baked Ziti (or penne, or whatever kind is your favorite)

Favorite Find Friday-Cheese Balls

by

Who doesn’t love Cheese Puffs or Cheese Balls?  I mean come on!  They are crunchy and oh, so very cheesy, right?  Well, not if you’re living GF.  At least in my opinion.  Sure, I’ve eaten cheese puffs that are GF, but they just weren’t that good.  Well, that has all changed.  My friend, Lindsey, had told me last year that she found some GF cheese balls at Walmart.  I was hugely skeptical, but was overjoyed when I found them.  They were UTZ white cheddar cotton tails.  Imagine my dismay when I went back for more and found out they were a seasonal item…..NO!!!!!  *Heavy sigh of sadness*  Then all the sudden UTZ Cheese Balls appeared on the shelf at Sam’s Club.  Now, I do love a good cheese puff, but those oranges one, well, they are not the healthiest with the dyes etc.  So, I only buy them occasionally, as a special treat.  On a recent trip to Sam’s Club I was delighted to find that the one of the new seasonal items is my Favorite Find  UTZ Snow Balls!

These are a bit healthier without the dyes.  So, if you have a Sam’s Club near you and I’m sure they have them other places, probably Walmart.  You MUST, if you like cheese puffs, have this GF treat!

Favorite Find Friday-Instant Rice Noodles

by

Do you remember Ramen Noodles?  Back when I was a kid and even an adult these were a mainstay – super and I mean, super cheap – like at one point they were like 20 cents a bag!  Not a very healthy food by any means, but a bit filling, tasty, easy to take along, if necessary and affordable.  You could also jazz them up with meat and veggies, if desired.  My favorite was the chicken, by the way, in case you were wondering.  You’re probably wondering, by now, if my Favorite Find for this week is Ramen Noodles – the answer is NO!  But, they are a GF equivalent to them.  When I came across this in the store recently:

I was interested, here was a GF fast food, basically, a take along, make almost anywhere food.  A GF Ramen Noodle, a bit more expensive (68 cents at Walmart) and slightly healthier version, that is, this little package has 3 grams of protein and only 2 grams of sugar.  I bought a pack to try.  I was pleasantly surprised.  (This one is also dairy free.)  They were pretty tasty, I would have liked them a bit less al dente.  But, being my first time I just followed the directions which said 3 minutes for cooking.  Anyway, I will definitely get more and keep on hand for quick meal or to take with me.  All you really need is hot water.  Which you can get anywhere they have coffee.  Bring along a dish to “cook” in and you’re all set.  I figure all you would have to do, if you don’t have access to a stove, is pour the hottest water available on the noodles, stir in seasoning and let sit for a longer period of time.   

I found these in a little Gluten Free section they have at my Walmart, but you can probably find them in the Asian section of your grocery.  If not, there’s always Amazon.com.

Favorite Find Friday- Bunny Cookies

by

My Favorite Find for this week is so yummy and cute!!

Now, we had tried the GF Cocoa & Vanilla Bunny Cookies and I didn’t care for them.  The left a bad taste in my mouth. The kids only like the chocolate ones….So I wasn’t 100% on trying these, but just the name makes them sound so good and because of this I decided give these a try.  Boy am I glad that I did – they are fabulous, so good!!  I found these at Target, which was surprising as I’ve looked for GF things there before without success, but this was a huge success.  They also had Ginger Snap bunnies, but since I was sure, I was only willing to invest in one of the boxes and I let my son choose, I was willing to try either.  I will definitely be heading back over there to pick up another box of these and to try the Ginger Snap, I feel pretty sure that they will be just as good!
