Arrowhead Mills Gluten Free Brownies are by far my favorite so far. Superb flavor,very moist. I baked these at a high altitude, and also at low altitude, and they were perfect each time. I used an 8 x8 pan....these were cake like, which I prefer. Their chocolate chip cookies were a disaster....more like peanut brittle spread all over the place. I honestly wanted to contact this company and ask for a refund.

I'm also fairly new at this and have a stash of different brands to try. Pamela's Brownies were a disaster...I misread the directions and will try them again.

Glutino honey nut and apple cinnamon cereal shaped like cheerios were superb. Their crackers that look like Ritz crackers also look good....I bought some, but haven't tried them yet.

Redbridge beer with a lime in it.....great, especially with corn tacos. ! Their website is a bit wacky. Not up to date. I'm presently in Cottonwood, AZ (I travel) and found it at Walmart. Their website said the nearest supply was Phoenix or Flagstaff. Not true.

Kinni-Kwik Bread and Bun mix was a disaster. There is no yeast in the mix, and my loaf of bread was 3" high. I will try it again, because there is some mix left over. Next time I will use warm Vance's Dari Free, and yeast and try it in the bread machine.

For those with casein/lactose problem such as me...I've been using Fleishman's Unsalted margarine for years....not always available. For some reason, certain supermarkets carry the regular Fleishman's, but not the unsalted. Never could understand that. I'm sure the store manager could order it. Smart Balance or Benecol ...the kind used for cooking and baking...will work also.

Living with my food issues is becoming easier every day. I'm still trying to perfect bread and hamburger buns "from scratch". I have found 4" Wilton miniature spring form pans at Michael's Craft Store, and they are perfect for making buns.

Tinkyada pasta hands down!

Glutino pretzels also get my vote. Even my non-gluten-free friends chow on em if I share.

Also, for those of you who aren't dairy free, if you miss a Stouffer's style frozen mac-n-cheese, Amys makes a great one!


Gluten-free after trying unsuccessfully and falling off wagon and becoming so sick--this is when the docs found the Hashimoto's, 2003. I have not eaten gluten willingly since then, until January, 2013. Past GI symptoms, delayed DH rash, biopsies on both have been negative, as well as IgE (all tests performed while not willingly consuming gluten). GERD dx in 2007, citric acid is worst offender. Mushrooms (the regular kind, that is) cause GI symptoms along with occasional rash (different than DH, the red dot kind) and I now wonder how many times I got sick from mushrooms and thought it was gluten contamination.
