The Pure Pantry Dark Chocolate Cake Review and Giveaway!

yummy gluten free cupcakes

 

Several of our friends are gluten-free and we’re always experimenting with foods to find ways to treat them when we can.  When The Pure Pantry asked if we’d review one of their products, we were excited to pick a Dark Chocolate Cake mix to try.

We LOVE cupcakes and so decided to use our mix to make cupcakes instead of a cake.  The package made 24 cupcakes.  It was quick and easy to mix up and OMG, it smelled so good baking!

Gluten-free foods are not known for tasting great.  It’s not typical that there is a quality substitute for many traditional baking items, so finding a mix that is free of gluten, refined sugar, dairy, soy, nuts, and eggs AND tastes good is amazing!  The Pure Pantry was created by Elizabeth Kaplan, who found out six years ago that she was celiac.  A trained chef, Elizabeth set off to find out exactly what she could eat that wouldn’t make her sick.  In the process, she found out that her two children also had food sensitivities.  She realized that great tasting, organic, allergen free products were not readily available and that experimenting with various materials, she could create fabulous-tasting food for her family.  In doing so, she wrote a cookbook and developed her company, The Pure Pantry, that creates and sells mixes for folks that desire yummy gluten-free food products.

I’m Telling You Tuesday: They Might Be Giants: Istanbul (not Constantinople)

by Paula on September 23, 2014

THE POST BELOW MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. FOR MORE DETAILS, PLEASE SEE OUR DISCLOSURE NOTICE.

Ariel heard this They Might Be Giants song recently and broke into a crazy, funny dance!  “Shimmy, shimmy, shimmy, shimmy!”

Turns out she learned it at camp this summer as an energizer.  Who would have expected that? :)

Give it a listen:

 


 

Does your tween know this song and this dance?  I can’t find a video with her motions (might make one at some point), but I assure you, it’s a fun dance! It’s not the same as the dance from Just Dance 4. It has a lot more movement and totally earns the moniker of “energizer”!

Smithsonion TweenTribune

Ariel is expected to write about current events in several of her classes.  One of her teachers listed TweenTribune as a possible resource for her class to use to find articles written on her grade level.  Of course, I had to check it out.  I’m impressed!

Smithsonian also boasts TTJunior for grades K-4 and Teen Tribune for grades 9-12.  Teachers can sign up and allow their students to comment on stories, but registration isn’t necessary to read articles.
