March 2014 Favorites from My Gluten-free Kitchen

5 gluten-free recipes I drooled over this month:

  1. Peanut Butter Cake with Peanut Butter Drizzle from Lauren Kelly Nutrition – Seriously craving this one! I love peanut butter treats!
  2. Garlic Lemon Shrimp by Don’t Mess with Mama – I haven’t had shrimp in years. I think I’ll make this, even if the rest of my family isn’t willing to. It just looks sooooo good!
  3. Gluten-free Banana Nut Granola from Sarah Bakes Gluten-free Treats – We love homemade granola and we’re banana fans, so this sounds perfect!
  4. Green Mint Desserts Round-up at All Gluten-free Desserts (unavailable online) – I love chocolate and mint together as evidenced by having 3 of my recipes featured in this round-up. I loved all of the other entries and can’t wait to try them! Those doughnuts!!!
  5. Coffee Cake Muffins from Celiac in the City   – Aren’t these pretty?! I’m sure I’d love these!

5 favorite things I bought this month:

  1. Lemon Drop Candies from Nuts.com – These are sooooo addicting! I’m not much of a candy person, but I love these!
  2. I did a huge order with all of my favorite things from the certified gluten-free section of nuts.com, including Almond Flour, Millet Flour, and Corn Meal.
  3. Mineral Fusion Natural Brands Mineral Body Wash, Sunstone– This is my favorite body wash, gluten-free of course! I stocked up on a few month’s worth this time.
  4. Cozy socks from Target – My feet get so cold in the evenings when I’m sitting at my desk working on the blog, so I love having warm socks. I couldn’t resist these fun cozy socks on clearance!
  5. Ener-G Foods Gluten-free Communion Wafers– My church lets me buy these, we package them individually in sealed plastic baggies, and offer them in a basket in the lobby on Communion Sunday each month. I so appreciate being able to participate in communion and a number of other gluten-free, or wheat-free members of our church appreciate it too.

5 favorite things I read this month:

  1. Natural Products Expo West was earlier this month, where many companies debut their new gluten-free and allergy-free products. I enjoyed reading these recaps for the scoop on new products from Jules Shepard and Erica of Celiac & the Beast.
  2. I loved reading these 10 Mr. Rogers Quotes You Need to Read. Loved that show as a kid and have so much respect for him as an adult.
  3. I was practically yelling “AMEN!” as I read this article: Can We Bring The Holidays Down a Notch?
  4. The How Can It Be Gluten Free Cookbook from America’s Test Kitchen– I was so excited when this cookbook arrived as I’ve been looking forward to it for months! I love reading their research and techniques and am anxious to start testing some recipes from it soon!
  5. Words Matter – a beautiful blog post with great reminders.

 

If you have any favorites from March to share with me, I’d love if you would comment so I can check them out!

Stopping by from the Spring Style Challenge. I am going to have to check out that body wash. I am still trying to get rid of gluten from all of my makeup/bathroom products. Just when I think I have gotten it all out I find a little more. Your recipes look amazing, I see some peanut butter cake in my future.

Melissa, Thanks for stopping by. I really do love that body wash. The Sunstone scent is very lemony and refreshing. It can be so hard to find good gluten-free bathroom products. For make-up, I really like Mineral Fusion and Red Apple Lipstick (ad for them on my sidebar because I love them!) If you love peanut butter, you've got to check out my peanut butter brownies - my fave! Thanks for your comments Melissa!

My happy little find was Goldfish Puffs. Used to love those little cheddar Goldfish. Now they have a Gluten Free version called puffs. Ahhh memories

Tamara, Glad you found those! I reviewed those here on the blog last year too. I'm really hoping they will make gluten-free Goldfish crackers too!

Does the body wash you use have a scent? I can't use anything with perfume, or a fragrance.

Jennessa, Yes, the body wash does. They have several varieties, all scented. I have to be careful of scents with my migraines, and this lemony scent (Sunstone) works for me. Hope you can find something unscented for you.
