Long Overdue Gluten Free Post

I’ve been remiss. Time to catch up on gluten free (GF) goodness.

The first win was this GF pancake mix.

gf-pancake-mixUnfortunately, I have no idea where I bought it and can’t find it again. If you see it, it’s a winner.

The next item is a first for me. I bought Pillsbury’s GF flour and used it in some of my tried and true recipes…and hated it. My biscuits tasted like paste balls. I can no longer find the GF flour I used for years, making a substitute the only choice.

Enter this book.

The pancakes turned out fantastic! They were so good that I drove to Barnes & Noble right after breakfast and bought the book.

I learned a valuable lesson here. The problem wasn’t the GF flour, the problem was how I was using it. It required a different approach than the last brand.

Me and the doughboy go way back, so I’m glad we can still be friends.

As always, I have no affiliation to any of the companies mentioned above. I just like to share a good thing when I find it.
