I'v been baking alot, and I needed all sorts of flour for the recipes. I used flour from Bob's Red Mill. It's great because they have lots of different flour that comes in a good size. They also have mixes for cookies and cakes, but I tried the cookie mix once and I din't like it at all, I dont know if it was the flour or the recipe, but it just had a certain taste that I didn't like at all. But thats okay. So if you need certain flour types Bob's Red Mill is a great choice for flour.

I wanted a dessert to make recently but something that wasn't too hard, so I got Pamela's Brownie mix. On the back of it, It didn't have different food recipes, but recipes for different brownies, I made the cake-like brownies. They were okay. They were very rich tasting which I didn't like too much. but one thing I liked about the mix is that they had chocolate chunks in it, which made the brownie, a good flavor. I overall didn't like them, for a good dessert I'd recommend WOW cookies, they are great, as soon as I can I will make them.

While going to the ice cream section in the store, as usual, (I love ice cream) I found a box of ice cream cones, that said gluten-free on it. I bought it. The ice cream cones were from Joy. I knew that this company had gluten-ice cream cones too. They made gluten-free sugar cones and then regular small cones. When I tasted it it tasted great it tasted exactly like the gluten cone. It tasted great (I know the ice cream helped make it great). I have seen, other gluten-free cones, but this one was a bigger company, than the other one and it's nice to see a big gluten company have some gluten-free products. right now the are being sold at Brookshire, H.E. Butt, Wegmans, ShopRite, QFC, Heinen's, Market of Choice, Bales Market Place Thriftway and Sherm’s Thunderbird Market. Have a good dessert!

I went to the Phinney Farmer's market in Seattle and I found Maninis. They are a local company who make gluten-free food they have bread, bread mixes, pasta, cookies and soon more. They are only at the farmer market right now but soon will be at whole foods and then hopefully Pike Place. For the bread mix you don't need a bread maker. I will make the mix soon and I will tell everyone about it. But the bread I tasted was delicious.

Even though I have Celiac I still get other pains that I do not know what they are from. So I will sometimes take medicine like Tylenol. But medicine is hard to see if it is gluten-free because it has complex ingredients. The way I find out if it is gluten-free is by going to a website: http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/. It is from the Celiac Disease Foundation. It is a very good website all you do is just search for the Medicine on the list.

I get sick of having cereal or toast every single morning for breakfast. So when I went to the store one day I found waffles. They were the Homestyle Waffles from Kinnikinnick. The ones from Kinnikinnick tasted perfect. They tasted almost like wheat waffles but not as sweet which is good because they are so hard to eat when they are super sweet. Also unlike bread they were a good size to have just enough of it. I am very happy that I had found a good tasting waffle. Now I hope someone makes gluten-free crumpets, the few times I tried them they tasted great.

I recently went camping with my family and as always we had s'mores. The problem is that the graham crackers are made with wheat. But I found gluten-free crackers that tasted great. They were called S'moreables from Kinnikinnick. They tasted like wheat graham crackers just not as crunchy but that doesn't matter. Also if you don't know what chocolate or marshmallows to have the Hershey's chocolate bar and all of Hershey's products are gluten-free. For marshmallows I recommend the Jet-Puffed marshmallows from Kraft they are the perfect size for the graham crackers.
