    Inspiration Mixes Gluten Free Pie Crust

    Now is the perfect time of year to find a tasty, easy-to-make gluten-free pie crust!  I recently tried Inspiration Mixes gluten-free pie crust mix and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. 

    This pie crust mix is priced right and each box makes four pie crusts.  The crust only took a few minutes to make, and after a short time in the fridge it was ready to be rolled out.  I just dusted some gluten-free flour on parchment paper and simply rolled out the ball of gluten-free dough and was surprised to see how easily it transferred it into the pie pan.  It held together beautifully and wasn't dry, crumbly or gritty like some of the other brands that I have tried.  The gluten free pie crust held in place and withstood the moist filling of my pumpkin pie. 

    I was a little nervous about serving it because I have not had the best of luck with gluten free pie crusts in the past, but as soon as I cut into the first slice I knew this pie crust was going to be different.  The crust was flaky, and as you may know the first slice can be the most difficult to remove from the pan, but I have to say that it came out beautifully!  My entire family (even the non celiacs) enjoyed the pumpkin pie.  I was a little disappointed that we didn't have any leftovers, but that's better than making a pie that no one wants to eat. 

    I still have enough pie crust mix to make a few more, but this time I am getting requests to make a gluten free apple pie!

  • About Me

    After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002.  The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have.  It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.

    I’m always keeping an eye out for nutritional snacks that are convenient for “grab-and-go” moments.  I recently came across Bakery On Main's Gluten-free Peanut Butter and Jelly Granola Bars and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised.  These bars are soft and chewy and are made with real peanut butter and dried strawberries so there are no mystery ingredients or artificial flavors, which always gives me extra peace of mind.  What I did find surprising is that the bars also contained other nutritional gluten-free grains like quinoa and amaranth but my kids still liked them.

    Finding a good gluten free ice cream cone turned out to be a real obstacle for me. Either they held up well, but tasted like cardboard, or they had a good flavor but were extremely brittle.  I almost gave up on my search for a great gluten-free cone, but then I tried Joy's Gluten-free Sugar Ice Cream Cones.  Joy Cones have such a nice crisp texture and are strong enough to hold up to my eight-year-old's scooping skills. Not to mention that they taste amazing!  I even catch my non-celiac kids dipping into my stash.

    I recently discovered Bold Organics gluten-free and dairy-free Meat Lovers Thin Crust Pizza.  There are very few gluten and dairy-free pizzas on the market, but I have to say that this was the best that I have tried to date.  I just put the frozen pizza on the top rack of my oven for about 20 minutes, and you could almost tell when it was done as the aroma drifted into our living room. 
    The crust was a beautiful, crisp, and thin crust, and I had no idea that non-dairy cheese could actually melt the same way as regular dairy cheese.  This pizza was prepared with plenty of pepperoni and Italian sausage to cover the entire pizza, and there was no skimping on ingredients! 
    Once I cut myself a slice I was in disbelief that this was not only a gluten-free, but was also a dairy-free pizza.  The taste, texture and the quality of the pepperoni and sausage was top notch, and not that of your typical frozen gluten-free pizza.  Even though I do not have any issues with dairy, I will definitely be purchasing this pizza again.  Thumbs up from my whole family!

    At this point, there are lots of gluten-free crackers on the market. While many of them taste great, a lot of them contain soy, corn starch and/or rice flour, which can be problematic for some people. Additionally, not all of them are Kosher. Absolutely Gluten-Free Toasted Onion Crackers not only taste great, but they're Kosher, gluten-, corn-, rice- and soy-free as well.
    Having these crackers around the office has been great. They remind me of water crackers: they have that light, airy, crispy texture that makes them just perfect for overeating. These crackers are more flavorful though, which I would partially attribute to them being made primarily from tapioca and potatoes. They also have a subtle stone-baked flavor that complements the toasted onion well.
    I have enjoyed these both out of the bag (eaten by the handful), and with soft cheese. They're a yummy, adaptable snack and I highly recommend them.
    Order them online at GlutenFreeMatzo.com.
