Over the past week or so I have received a number of gluten-free products to sample & review. I am so excited about this! All of these goodies look so good – I can’t wait to dive into each & every one. All in good time. Be on the lookout for lots of good stuff!
Sunday night my mother-in-law, Mary, called & asked to stop by. Twenty minutes later she showed up with the most incredible gluten-free delicacy you could imagine. Can you guess what she brought over? Gluten-free cream-filled chocolate frosted doughnuts.
These puppies tasted better than I remember Krispy Kreme’s tasting. Jon has counted them so that no one steals his beloved treats. I hope to get the recipe from Mary & share it with you guys in the next few days.
I was able to make my own, personalized chocolate bar at Chocomize the other day! What fun I had creating that! I chose to make my bar out of dark chocolate with dried blueberries & cashews. I have yet to dig in, but I promise to report back when I do. Here is a teaser picture for you:
I was very fortunate today to meet with a very special woman named Shelley at Whole Foods. Shelley started a company called Moondance Heavenly Desserts after finding out that she was both wheat & gluten intolerant. In Shelley’s quest to find gluten-free desserts she enjoyed, she perfected several gluten-free recipes & opened her own business. I will expand much more on Shelley & Moondance Heavenly Desserts in my review of the products. For now, I leave you with a picture of the treats that were graciously given to us to sample & review:
I am especially looking forward to the Pumpkin Cheesecake. Those of you who have been reading Gluten-free is Life for a while know about my love for pumpkin – it is right up there with chocolate. Make sure to check back soon for our review of Shelley’s treats.
One last quick note – Starbuck’s is now carrying gluten-free treats again. You can read more about it here in my latest Examiner article.
