It is that time of year again where we begin to get invited to parties and cookouts. I used to have to say no because my husband is Gluten Free. It was just awful to see him eye the dessert table and not be able to grab anything; that has all changed. That is why I am so excited to share with you the brownies and cookies we have made using Pillsbury™ Gluten Free Premium Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix and Cookie Mixes that I found at Walmart. They are perfect and are easy gluten free desserts for picnic. I now volunteer to make desserts everywhere we go. It seems that dessert is the hardest to find at cookouts for people with Gluten problems. I always feel bad that my husband didn’t have any treats to pick from at these events. Before Pillsbury™ came out with their Gluten Free Premium Cake Mixes, Brownie Mix, Cookie Mixes, and icings available at Walmart the most common problem with making gluten free recipes was cost and time. I always felt like it cost to much to make Gluten Free Desserts and the ones I made tasted horrible. They never came out right, and I spent a lot of time and money making them. I was frustrated.Continue reading
Are you looking for a Gluten-Free treat? You know one that is easy to make, tastes exceptional, and is budget friendly and belly approved? I have been searching for one because we are Pillsbury™ people and their brownies, cakes, and cookies fill my cabinet. I stopped making them as often as I used to because my husband couldn’t eat them with us because he is gluten free. I felt awful eating a slice of cake when he didn’t have anything to eat. I just can’t find any good gluten free cake mixes for cupcakes to use and make. That is why when Pillsbury™ introduced their gluten-free line. I bought every single product they had. I had to try them because for the past year and a half since my husband went Gluten-Free he also went treat free. It was horrible! Who doesn’t want a piece of cake or a cookie every now and then?

I would like to take a moment to share my mom failures with you. I think we all start out with the best intentions. We want to bake something with our kids, and it will be fun. We go to the store with them. We come home having missed out on an ingredient we needed. We go back to the store. We buy the ingredient and thirty dollars more in things we do not need. We get home, and we are tired, and we do not feel like baking. We do so because we have promised up and down that today is the day we will bake together. We start the process; then someone loses something in the bowl. We fish it out. We remind them not to stick their hands in the bowl. Then we decide our warning is falling on deaf ears, so we decide to give them their own bowl of flour and water to stir while we make the real thing. Then we hear the proverbial whoops. We look down, and it appears to have snowed in our kitchen. We have one child using the flour to make handprints on the floor, isn’t that neat? Neat? It is the exact opposite of neat. It is a mess. We keep stirring and mixing hoping the kitchen will last through this epic event. We then hear “he took my spoon!” We remind to share. We say come help mom. Okay! Then they begin to help mom by fighting over who is going to help mom. We become annoyed, this is supposed to be fun. I am trying to cook cupcakes from scratch. I spent all this time buying the ingredients and putting them on the counter, measuring everything, so it was right, and then I had the sequence of who was going to do what. Well, that was great in my mind but the reality is flour hand prints on the floor, counter, and even my bottom has one.Continue reading
