BFree Foods Review

About a week ago, a 12 pound box from BFree Foods arrived at my house, and ever since my family and I have been trying a variety of tasty allergen free products! 🙂 You see, BFree Foods doesn’t just make products free from Gluten, their products are also free from: Wheat, Dairy, Eggs, Nuts and Soy. Which makes the entire line of BFree products free from major allergens, as well as vegan.

Let me start by showing you all the products the folks at BFree Foods were nice enough to send me!

This included:

1 Pack of Quinoa and Chia Seed Wraps

1 Pack of Multigrain Wraps

2 Packages of Soft White Rolls

2 Packages of Brown Seeded Rolls 

2 Packages of Multi Seed Bagels

2 Packages of Plain Bagels

2 Loaves of Soft White Sandwich Bread

2 Loaves of Brown Seeded Sandwich Bread

Upon suggestion of BFree Foods PR Agent, I put the products I wasn’t immediately going to try in my freezer, resulting in this:

With all these yummies, I’ve spent about a week trying products, and still have yet to try the Multi Seed Bagels, Soft White Sandwich Bread, and Multigrain Wraps, so reviews for those will come later. 😉

Let’s talk about the Quinoa and Chia Seed Wraps first! This is one of the first things I tried as I was SO excited that when I took them out of the box they were soft and pliable. I decided to one out for a breakfast burrito, and here’s the result:

IMG_6178

I used eggs, cheese, bell peppers, onions, and ham as my filling, and it was super tasty with the slightly nutty flavor these wraps add. The texture is perfect. I was a touch worried that the quinoa or chia seeds would result in an odd, gritty texture, but quickly learned that didn’t cause any problems. And, you get all this great flavor with only 110 calories per wrap. 🙂 Other ways I’ve used/ plan to use these wraps: Quesadillas, Personal Pizza, Burritos, Migas, and maybe even this recipe for Italian Enchiladas.

Next up, we’ve got the plain bagels, which I’m pretty sure we’ve used solely for breakfasts. Again, texture is great. They’re soft, and lack any pesky crumbling. They’re fine plain, as well as toasted, and we’ve topped them with everything from PB&J:

to Eggs, Ham, and Cheese for a Breakfast Bagel Sandwich!

Next up we have: Brown Seeded Sandwich Bread! This bread is awesome, and really different from other Gluten Free breads I’ve tried. To start with, the slices are much longer and thinner, as the cut their loaves of bread lengthwise opposed to horizontally. The only flaw I’ve found is that because the slices are so long, they don’t fit in the toaster unless you cut them in half. However, if that’s the only issue it has, I’d say it’s a win. It’s really yummy, and I used it for quite a few sandwiches. Such as this PB&J:

(Yes, our Christmas tree is still up. It’s just so pretty! Ha.)

Onto the rolls. . .

These may be my family’s favorite thing they sent. In fact, we ate the first few so quickly, I didn’t even get pictures of them (they’ll be in my second BFree Foods post) They’re great with soup, awesome as mini sandwiches, and would probably work really well as hamburger buns.

I believe that’s all for now! Check back soon for the second part of this post!

Thanks to BFree Foods for providing these products for me to try. As usual, in spite of the fact that I received these products for free, all opinions expressed in this post are mine and mine alone.

Have an awesome day!

We’re having a party!

Foster Farms has been around for quite some time, but they’ve only been part of the Gluten Free Community for two years. In order to celebrate their two year gluten free anniversary they’re teaming up with a group of bloggers to share the diversity of their products. Over the next couple months we’ll discuss different aspects of their products and different ways to switch them up. Today though, we’re going to discuss the party I threw to celebrate their two year gluten free anniversary, and how I made their corn dogs into a breakfast buffet item. 🙂

What you need to know though is that my kitchen is TEENY TINY, which means that my breakfast buffet is kind of disjointed, but it all worked out!

IMG_5336IMG_5332IMG_5443

What you see above from left to right is: Sausage Balls and Cheese Grits, Simple Truth Waffles from Kroger, and Gluten Free Foster Farms Corn Dogs (which were in the oven when these pictures were taken and why you don’t see pictures of them, but I promise they were there!)

Anyways, here was the breakfast buffet menu:

  • Cheese Grits
  • Sausage Balls (I used Gluten Free Bisquick, and this recipe)
  • Gluten Free Simple Truth Waffles
  • Foster Farms Gluten Free Corn Dogs
  • Orange Juice

As usual, the Foster Farms corn dogs were terrific. . . the party consisted of both Gluten and Non-Gluten eaters, and no one could tell the difference.

Wanna know how I added them to my breakfast buffet? Bake them a couple minutes longer, and serve them with syrup . . . they’re almost like Gluten Free Pancake on a Stick!

Overall, it was a GREAT party, and the addition of Foster Farms products made it even better!

Have a great day y’all!

Gluten Free Chickfila Copycat Breakfast Burrito

Earlier this week I posted this picture to my Instagram, and went about my day.

IMG_5146

But, I later realized that some of y’all might want to know how I’d copycatted Chickfila’s sausage breakfast burrito, and figured I’d share how I made it Gluten Free!! 😀

Here’s What You’ll Need:

1 Toufayan Gluten Free Original Wrap

1/8 cup of frozen pepper and onion mix

2 Tablespoons Shredded Colby Jack Cheese

2 Eggs

2 Gluten Free Turkey Sausage Patties

Salt and Pepper

Optional: Salsa

Directions: Cook your onions and peppers until tender, remove from pan, brown sausage patties and remove to cutting board. Chop into roughly 16 pieces per patty. Scramble your eggs . . . while they’re cooking place a wrap on your plate and arrange the peppers, onions, and sausage in the center of your wrap. Place cheese on top, then take your cooked eggs and place those on top. Roll up your wrap into a burrito, and enjoy! If you choose to eat yours with salsa, add that on the plate before serving.

Simply put, that’s how you make a Gluten Free Chickfila Sausage Breakfast Burrito. I served mine with tater tots to mimic the Chickfila hash brown rounds . . . it was NOT the same. 😛 Anybody have a hash brown round recipe? Let me know! 😉

I hope y’all enjoy this recipe! Let me know if you choose to make it by leaving a comment below with your thoughts.

Have a Fantastic Friday y’all!

Love,

Olivia

New Grains Gluten Free Bakery . . . a review!!

A few days ago I hinted at an upcoming review and guess what!? Today is the day! 🙂

Today I’ll be talking about . . . New Grains Gluten Free Bakery!

The folks at New Grains sent me three of their products to review: English Muffins, Sour Dough Bread, and a Pink Sugar Cookie:IMG_4880

We’ll start by reviewing the Pink Sugar Cookie:

IMG_4888

Besides being adorable with its pink icing and sprinkles . . . it’s also tasty. It reminds me of the soft, iced sugar cookies you can get in the bakery at the grocery store, just without the gluten! 🙂 It’s sweet without being overly sweet, and has awesome texture!

Onto our next product: Sour Dough Bread. Y’all . . . this is THE VERY BEST GLUTEN FREE BREAD I’VE HAD . . . EVER! I’ve eaten it toasted with butter and jam, I’ve had it as a sandwich,  I’ve toasted it and topped it with turkey, cheese, tomato, pasta sauce, banana peppers and basil:

IMG_4900

No matter how I’ve eaten it, it’s been great. The texture is perfect, the flavor is EXACTLY like I remember glutenous sourdough bread tasting, and as a bonus there’s tons of it in a loaf. I’ll still be eating it in October (I’m exaggerating, but there is a lot of it in a loaf.) Just in case you hadn’t caught my drift yet . . . it’s FABULOUS, the only downside is that I can’t get it whenever I want it (which may be a good thing) because their bakery is in Utah, and shipping takes . . . time, ya know!? Lol.

Last but not least . . . the English muffins! As much as I loved the bread, these may take the cake. I’ve been rationing them over the past few days so they’ll last longer, but I’m down to half a muffin, so I may need to order more. I love these for breakfast. They are the most like glutenous English muffins out of anything I’ve tried, and are so tasty that they’re delicious with just butter and a swirl of honey. I also liked them with apple butter, as you can see in the photo below.

Overall, everything I tried from New Grains Gluten Free Bakery was superb, and I’m delighted that they were sweet enough to send me these delectable products my way. If y’all would like to purchase the products mentioned in this post from their online store, check out the links at the top of this post.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

I got mail!!

Well y’all, it’s official . . . Livie’s Gone Gluten Free has officially relocated to Georgia. Why is it official today, you ask?? Well . . . that would be because WE GOT OUR FIRST PIECE OF MAIL!

Yay!!

And no, you don’t get to see what it was . . . yet. (It’s a secret)

I have some AWESOME things planned for the rest of August!! So keep your eyes peeled. 🙂

I love Flourless Chocolate Cake!

Located in darling Downtown Rome, Honeymoon Bakery has a handful of Gluten Free options, including Flourless Chocolate cake, which is my favorite. Now, being the dork I am, I forgot to take pictures while we were there Saturday. Crazy, I know. Thankfully, their website has pictures, so I borrowed one:

See the chocolate covered triangle on the top row (third from the left) well, that’s the Flourless Chocolate Cake, and it is delicious.

Lucky for y’all though, if you aren’t able to get to Honeymoon Bakery, you can make Flourless Chocolate Cake at home. I found this recipe on Pinterest the other day, and plan to try it soon. Fair warning though, it’s a SUPER rich dessert. Like, my mama, sister and I split the piece because it is SO very rich.

Regardless, it’s very tasty, and if you like chocolate . . . you’ll LOVE this!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Love,

Olivia
