One thing I've noticed about being gluten free is that it has forced me to spend WAY more time in the kitchen than I ever had before. I have become a better cook/baker than I ever thought I could be. Practice really does make perfect (Although, I'm still a long way from perfect...lol) As I mentioned the other day when I posted the brownie recipe, I'd NEVER made brownies from scratch before. I'd always relied upon a box mix, that's just what you did for brownies right? As nice as it has been for my skills in the kitchen to be growing, there's always something to be said for having the option to fall back on convenience as well. I don't want to always be having to make brownies from scratch because I'm gluten free. So I'm excited to report that Betty Crocker has answered our pleas. She has made us gluten free baking mixes. There's cookie, brownie, yellow and chocolate cake mixes. Betty Crocker also makes gluten free Bisquick as well. So now we can again keep a couple of these mixes in our pantries for those last minute requests for baked goods. Need to be at dinner party in two hours and forgot you signed up for dessert. No problem! We can once again throw together a batch of cupcakes or brownies in an hour without breaking a sweat. Thanks Betty Crocker for giving us back the convenient back-up plan :)
I'm a stay at home mom and writer who has been living in the NOVA area for the past nine years. I love to shop and I love good food. I'm hoping that combo will pay off as I seek out the best gluten free food in the NOVA area. Enjoy!
