    Jovial Foods Gluten-Free Organic Brown Rice Penne Rigate Pasta

    I recently tried Jovial Foods' Gluten-Free Organic Brown Rice Penne Rigate Pasta and was looking forward making my Grandmother's baked ziti dish using this penne rigate pasta.  Since I am super sensitive to gluten, I love the fact that Jovial Foods make their pasta in a dedicated gluten free facility and that it is also certified gluten-free.  

    I cooked the pasta just a few minutes under the required time on the packaging, since it would also be baked after.  When I sampled the pasta by itself, I was very pleased by the taste and texture.  After my tasting of Jovial Foods gluten free pasta, I had high hopes that my Grandmother's dish would finally turn out—not only for those that are gluten free in my family— but one that I can serve to those that are not on a gluten-free diet.

    When I took the dish from the oven it looked beautiful!  When I scooped out each serving, the pasta held its shape remarkably well, and everyone was excited to dig in.  Jovial's Brown Rice Penne Rigate was a success and sadly we didn't have any left overs, but I know I will be making this dish with Jovial's pasta again soon.

    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 just discovered a whole new world in gluten free grocery shopping!  Zeer.com is an easy-to-use Web site that offers a service, called Zeer Select, to those on a gluten-free diet.  Zeer Select is a database of over 30,000 mainstream products, each with its own gluten-free safety status.  I’m talking about easy-to-find items that you can locate in a “regular” grocery store.  I was able to simply search for the gluten-free status of a product by category, product name, or UPC code.  If I searched for products which turned out not to be gluten-free it would recommend a similar product that was gluten-free.
    One of my favorite features of Zeer.com w...

    Finding affordable, gluten-free skin care products can be a chore. But, thanks to Joelle's Cosmetics' one-stop gluten-free skin care shop, the world of cosmetics has been revolutionized, and shopping for gorgeous gluten-free make-up has never been easier or more affordable.
    There are just too many amazing products, so I'm not sure where to start! Joelle's 14-Piece Deluxe Gluten-Free Make-up Kit is a perfect starter kit. It comes equipped with everything; including a stylish, self-contained organizer with interior zipper pouches (perfect for travel), a 7-piece professional vegan brush set with luxuriously soft brushes, and dazzling mineral make-up...

    I was very surprised when I received a care package of Hail Merry's gluten-free blonde macaroons.  I absolutely love coconut and have always had bit of a sweet tooth, but in the past I haven't always had the best of luck with gluten-free macaroons.  Usually, I find macaroons to be way too sweet, high in fat and calories or the texture is just wrong.  Despite the charming packaging that contained these macaroons, I still had my doubts – but who am I kidding?  I love coconut! 
    When I took my first bite I noticed that the texture of these macaroons was soft, slightly chewy, but not overly sweet – I guess they read my mind about my usual complaints about mo...

    I just tried Kay's Naturals Gluten-free Almond Delight Protein Puffs and I have to say that they were not a disappointment. 
    With only 115 calories, 12 grams of protein and 2.5 grams of fat (no trans fats) per serving, I was a bit skeptical, but this crunchy snack kept me satisfied between meals--guilt free!  I love that it is made with real almond meal and almond butter because I just despise any artificial flavorings.  These little puffs are packaged in individual serving sized bags, which are not only convenient but they help keep the flavors and textures fresh.

    I recently tried Crunchmaster's Cheezy Crisps, which are little triangle-shaped gluten-free cheese-flavored rice crackers, and I must say that it was hard to put them down! This is the type of snack where one serving size may as well just be "one box" because it is that difficult to stop eating them.
    The first thing you notice when you put one in your mouth is the taste of real cheddar cheese, which always goes great with crackers. They taste almost like you are eating a piece of baked cheddar cheese, which reminds me of the fact that the crackers are baked and not fried, so they are healthier than some alternative cheese snacks that are on the market...

    I tried out a new app called “Gluten Free Bartender.”  This app is designed to make life easier for people to find gluten-free drinks. The “Drinks” section opens by default, and in it you will find categories: beers, champagne, ciders, liquors, mixers, wine coolers, wines, and miscellaneous.
    What I really liked about the app was the ability to view categories by brand, or by recipes that can be made using a particular brand.  You can also easily add items and recipes to a “Favorites” list. Another nice feature is the ability to see dated gluten-free information about the product which comes directly from the manufacturer, including contact information.<...

    Celiac.com 10/23/2014 - If you are someone who likes getting a surprise in the mailbox on a regular basis, a delivery of new gluten-free products from Send Me Gluten Free is definitely something you should try. 
    Each month a variety of gluten-free items will arrive on your doorstep in a bright orange box.  The ability to try different products and compare them is a smart idea.  For example, in the box I received, there were bar/granola products from three different companies, and two bags of chips (lentil and apple), along with personal care products and coupons which could be used on future purchases.
