The list author says: "Here is a list of the gluten-free foods we always keep on hand in our dedicated gluten-free kitchen. In order to make our list, a gluten-free product has to not only taste great, but it has to have excellent texture that mimics the product's "gluten containing cousin." In order for us to buy an expensive GF product (instead of making it from scratch), we have to be willing and eager to actually eat it! Here's hoping this list will help you save some of the money we have been throwing away for the past 5 years!"
"I use these to make my own version of the kid friendly boxed mac and cheese. I pretty much use only Tinkyada brand pasta, it has the best texture of all the GF pastas that I have found. I always buy the the pastas with Rice Bran for the added fiber."
"I wouldn't buy this many...but these crackers, I think, have the best taste and texture of all the GF crackers I have tasted. Very similar to a Saltine, a day old maybe. They are rather large, it would be nice if they came in a smaller size."
"I have found that substituting the butter with either Smart Balance or Dairy-Free Earth Balance greatly improves the texture and adds a moist crumb. SB and EB are essentially healthy oils that taste like butter."
"Once you taste on of these lollipops, you will never go back. Intense flavors that are genuine and don't feel like a lump of sugar in your mouth. They are organic, GF, peanut/tree-nut free, and do not contain corn syrup!"
"I use this to make my own GF mac and cheese. I make my own because I do not like the texture of the GF noodles in store-bought GF mac and cheese in a box. Using this cheese powder plus Tinkyada's elbow pasta with rice bran, produces an identical version of the famous blue box mac and cheese. Plus, I save a TON of money!"
"This is a great GF Rice Krispies "clone." When making Rice Crispy treats, add 1/2 tsp. of vanilla to the melted butter/marshmallow mixture before adding the cereal. The vanilla adds the "missing" flavor element by not having the malt flavoring in this gluten-free crisped rice cereal."
"I have not purchased this on Amazon yet since I have no way of knowing if I will get the new formula without the oats or the old formula with oats. I recommend buying in your local store, read the label!"
