Green Smoothie of the Day

Just made this fantastic smoothie and had to share my impromptu recipe.

Green smoothie of the day: spinach, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup pineapple and its juice, coconut water and 4 fresh mint leaves from my herb garden. Delicious, refreshing and a great digestive aid!!

Until next time!

Gluten Free Burritos at Dirty Harry's Burrito and Juice Bar

Burritos AND juice(?) you say. I thought it was a weird combination too. My friend told me the food here was awful but my husband and I decided to try it anyway. I'm gluten free and it's the only place in town I can get a burrito that's not in a bowl. They also have vegan cheese and options. When we first get there we were a little apprehensive. Although the staff was nice, the service was horrible. They seemed far more concerned with socializing with each other than taking care if their customers. Super slow service and there were only 4 tables seated. The food, however, was excellent. I had a gluten free ocean burrito with lump crab, grilled shrimp, mahi mahi, cilantro lime rice, goat cheese and mango salsa. It was bangin'. I was surprised how good the gluten free tortilla was. My husband had the jerk chicken nachos, also gluten free, and they were amazing. The chicken itself was super good. Also had a spiced apple margarita that was made with fresh squeezed apple and ginger juices and agave and it was off the chain. Now I understand the juice part of this restaurant. It means fresh and delicious craft cocktails. Prices are good but beware of the overpriced draft beer though. My husband was shocked when we got the bill and saw that his pint of beer was the same price as his nachos.

Until next time....

Stuff that Turkey!

This Thanksgiving I was super thankful for the introduction of a new gluten free stuffing on the market. Rudi's Gluten-Free Bakery introduced an easy peasy Stovetop style gluten free stuffing just in time for the holidays and it is AWESOME!! Simply the best ever. My family couldn't even tell the difference and when my husband ran out of his leftovers, he started eating mine!! He's not even gluten free! Sure I've made my own gf stuffing from scratch and I've even tried (and liked) Three Bakers gluten free stuffing. And although Three Bakers gf stuffing is delicious, made on the stove top and as easy as 1, 2, 3, it has more of a gourmet flavor profile. It just didn't have that traditional flavor that Rudi's had for me and nothing compares to that feeling when you put a forkful of the tastes of your childhood in your mouth.

Oh and try Silk Soy Seasonal Nog. It's delicious in a latte or spiked! Happy Holidays!!

Until next time….

A Fluffier Fluffernutter

If you've never had a fluffernutter sandwich you are seriously missing out on one of the best things in life. Creamy peanut butter and gooey marshmallow fluff on squishy white sandwich bread....oh wait, there is no such thing as squishy white sandwich bread for us gluten free-ers.  Or is there?

Ever since I found out I had to go gluten free I have been on a quest to find the perfect soft, squishy and fluffy sandwich bread. But not just any kind of sandwich bread, the kind to make my homey childhood classics on. French toast, grilled cheese and my all time favorite, the fluffernutter. After all my trials and tribulations, Rudi's Gluten Free breads came out on top.  I regularly buy their bread, buns, and tortillas but they still didn't quite make the perfect PB & J...until now. Rudi's kindly sent me a couple loaves of their all-new recipe gluten free bread and I must say I am impressed. For me they have always surpassed other brands in taste, texture and size so they've only one upped themselves in my opinion. And I'm glad they did! Their new soft and fluffy recipe has made my beloved fluffernutter soar to new heights!

Wanna try it yourself? Enter to win a $1,000 Reward! You know how many loaves you could buy with that?! Text "Found" to 304-52-RUDIS.
