I have celiac disease and am a mom to a child with food allergies. I have a blog called Sure Foods Living (www.surefoodsliving.com) where I share practical information related to living gluten-free and allergen-free.
Pamela’s Gluten-Free Cheesecake
Pamela’s Products won me over with a New York Cheesecake with a gluten-free ginger cookie crust. When available, there will be 3 inch or 6 inch rounds, and either refrigerated or frozen. Other cheesecake flavors are: White Chocolate Raspberry, Zesty Lemon, Hazelnut, and Agave Sweetened New York Cheesecake. Also coming soon: Chocolate Fudge Cake with Chocolate Frosting and Coffee Cake with Nut Topping.
Conte’s Gluten-Free Pasta
While Conte’s Pasta
isn’t new to the east coast, here in the west we hopefully will be able
to find their gluten-free stuffed pastas in stores soon. Gluten-free
ravioli, stuffed shells, gnocchi (also dairy-free), pierogis (there is
a dairy-free flavor) and lasagna are just some of the items they make.
They are a frozen product that come in a bag or, new in their product
line, a microwave meal! I tasted the ravioli at the show, and it was
delicious. I can’t wait to try the rest! These products are available online at the Gluten Free Mall.
Let’s Do Organic’s Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cones
It’s only January, but I can’t wait to try these new gluten-free ice cream cones from Edward & Sons’ brand. Not only are they gluten-free, but dairy-free and soy-free too. You should be able to find these now in Whole Foods.
San-J Gluten Free Cooking Sauces
Known in the gluten-free community for their wheat-free tamari, San-J
has finally made a gluten-free version of their Asian sauces. Look for:
Szechuan, Teriyaki, Thai Peanut, Sweet & Tangy, and Asian BBQ, all
with “GLUTEN FREE” on the label.
3 Senses Gourmet's Gluten Free Chocolate Souffle
The founder of 3 Senses Gourmet created a chocolate souffle that happens to be gluten-free. If you are a chocolate lover, this dessert is amazing — a flourless chocolate cake with molten chocolate spilling out of the center. Look for the Chocolate Souffle and the Caramel Chocolate Souffle (yum!) in the frozen section of stores on the West Coast. Note: the Chocolate Chip Brioche Bread Pudding made by this company is NOT gluten-free.
