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.

Who Inspired You? {a giveaway!}

Tuttorosso Tomatoes, yes, the 85-year-old tomato brand, is hosting a fun and easy Facebook promotion asking home cooks to post about their inspiration in cooking.  Who inspired you?
.
One of the main things about cooking is knowing what kind of products to use in which recipes.  For example, crushed tomatoes make a great base for pasta sauce, while paste can be used to thicken recipes.
.
Tuttorosso sent me three cans of tomatoes to sample–including the new No Salt Crushed.  I’m excited to try out some new recipes—and to test these yummy products!

8 delicious pecan recipes

Growing up in the south, there’s always a discussion on how to pronounce the word “pecan.”  Is it “PEE-can” or is it “pa-CAHN”?  I guess it really doesn’t matter as long as you can enjoy it in various ways…. and we do!!
