Thai Kitchen Gluten Free Pre Cooked Pad Thai Noodle Bowl Product Review

Thai Kitchen Gluten Free Pre Cooked Pad Thai Noodle Bowl

Thai Kitchen Gluten Free Pre Cooked Pad Thai Noodle Bowl

Ever since the very first time I had Pad Thai, I have been hooked.  The delicious sauce over the rice noodles, chicken, shrimp, veggies and peanuts.  What’s not to love?  In fact, I have a hard time ordering much of anything else when I go to a Thai restaurant… even before I had to be gluten free!!

When I saw Thai Kitchens Gluten Free Pre Cooked Pad Thai Noodle Bowls, I just couldn’t resist.  I love pad thai.. I buy Thai Kitchen’s rice noodles all the time, and I always need fast and easy things for lunch.   It wasn’t a hard sale.  It practically jumped into my basket at the grocery store.

I must say, this is convenient.  A couple of tablespoons of water and a packet of sauce over the noodles.  Pop it into the microwave for three minutes and you are set.  It even comes with a little packet of chopped peanuts.  Pad Thai has never been easier.

Now these easy noodles are not going to make all of your pad Thai dreams come true, but they are not bad.  I enjoyed them.  But I would say, they would benefit from adding some leftover chicken, maybe same veggies.  I think this would be best served as a side dish because it didn’t have what I call a “traditional pad thai” taste.  That is not to say I didn’t like it.  I did.  I only paid a few bucks for this item and I would recommend this product. With the note that don’t expect restaurant quality pad thai, expect a tasty noodle bowl that can be stored without refrigeration and popped in the microwave and three minutes later you have pad thai!!

Katz Gluten Free Glazed Donuts Product Review

Katz Gluten Free Glazed Donuts

Katz Gluten Free Glazed Donuts

My non-gluten free friends are always surprised to learned that after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease that I started to crave things that I never really ate prior to being diagnosed.  One of those things is definitely donuts.  I RARELY ever ate donuts and I never craved them.  However, now that I can’t have them, I want them all the time.  Recently I was shopping and saw Katz Gluten Free Glazed Donuts in the freezer section.  They had several different types and deciding on which to try was very difficult.  For this product review I tried the Glazed Donuts.  Of course any time you have to purchase a frozen products its never going to be the same as one fresh from the bakery.  But Katz sure knows how to make a tasty gluten free donut.  I gotta say I ate two of them as soon as I got home.  The box suggest heating them for a few seconds in the microwave and I tried it both ways and they are correct.  Its sooooooo tasty!!

So many gluten free products are not worth the extra cost to purchase them.  However, Katz’ Gluten Free Glazed Donuts are so yummy and worth it!!

Bamboo Wood Foldable Bread Slicer Product Review

Bread Slicer

Bread Slicer

So many times I have found gluten free breads are not sliced, not to mention things like banana bread or other specialty breads.  And if you ever want a good laugh, watch me try to cut even slices.  Every time I am convinced that THIS will be the time that I cut perfect slices and every time I am disappointed in my insanely uneven slices.  If you have ever found yourself in this position you know EXACTLY what I am talking about.

I have been on the lookout for a bread slicer.  I finally found a good one.  This Bamboo Wood Foldable Bread Slicer is fantastic.  The two things I like the most about this product is the fact that its foldable and there are three different slice sizes to meet your personal slice preferences.    It’s a great looking piece because its bamboo and its easy to use and store.

I highly recommend this product and even more good news is that its available on Amazon!!

Being the lemon fanatic that I am, my friends are wonderful about sharing their favorite lemon dessert recipes with me.  My friend Becky shared this dessert recipe when I was looking for a lemon dessert that I could use with mini dessert cups.  I haven’t used it in the mini cups yet because this is so tasty that I just wanted larger portions.   But this lemon dessert will be a fantastic dessert to serve to any hardcore lemon lovers!!

Note: this recipe would be ideal to use in the mini dessert cups.

Sam Mills White Cheddar Mac & Cheese Product Review

I was standing in line at Sprouts Market the other day, waiting to check out.  I could swear I heard my name whispered.  However, I am alone and I only had two needed items.  Anybody who has ever been to a Sprouts can tell you, it’s rarely quiet.  So the line was a little longer than I was hoping for.  There it is again… I heard a calling.  I turned to my right and standing, about 8 feet away from me, is a GIANT display of Gluten Free Sam Mills products!!  OH WOW!!  The dilemma is now do I give up my coveted space in line and run over there and look?  Or do I just focus on the two needed items I have?  What is a girl to do?  Every darn register is opened and every line is packed.  I just don’t want to lose my spot.  Then I happened.  I noticed the Sam Mills Gluten Free White Cheddar Mac & Cheese.  I’m out!!  I Grabbed my two items and headed over; the lady behind me giving me that, ohhh how lucky smile.  This display was huge and it was piled with all Sam Mills products and it was wonderful.  I grabbed some cookies and some white cheddar mac and cheese.  Of course I also had to grab some of their great pasta!!  After a few rounds of the giant display I headed back to the end of the line with all 8 products.

Sam Mills Gluten Free White Cheddar Mac & Cheese was really good.  Their noodles were perfect.   The sauce was light and creamy.  Now I love very sharp white cheddar cheese but let assure you, this is not the case the sauce is light and creamy enough to where even kids will like it.  And just like the box says, it’s made in 10 minutes.   If you are looking for a quick and easy lunch, I highly recommend this product.
