Gluten-Free

The Weekender

Here are the links I liked last week! Oh, speaking of liking links, I recently started using BlogLovin‘ to keep up with blogs and I’m (heh) lovin’ it. I hadn’t found a good solution that I stuck with since Google Reader went away but I like this one. It gives you a daily email recap with short excerpts from each blog you follow and then takes you to the blog if you click it. There’s something about reading a blog post on the actual blog vs. in a feed…I just enjoy it reading posts more on the actual blog!

Anyway, back to the links! Enjoy!

I want this grain free and sugar free vanilla cake. Right now. It looks delicious. Plus, I feel like I’ll kinda be celebrating with Lori and Michelle if I make it. Happy birthday loves!

Being friendly and chatty with strangers can make you happier. (My inner introvert is cringing. πŸ™‚ )

I wanna go to all of these amazingly epic places. Especially to Norway! And it’s crazy that I grew up in Utah and never went to Antelope Island or the Grand Canyon.

And all of these places too.

It’s been way too long since I’ve had a breakfast cookie. Glad I stumbled upon this link from Gina’s blog! Definitely adding them back into the rotation.

Β Choose the best post-race booze. (Umm, booze > pineapple juice, right?)

Two side notes: these crackers are amazing and totally addicting.

Van's Multigrain Gluten Free Crackers

And this new-to-me sheep cheese is super tasty.

Petite Basque Sheep Cheese

Alright, I’m off to help John cook dinner. We’re grilling out! And snacking on cheese and crackers. πŸ™‚ Enjoy your evening!

What’s your favorite cheese? I have yet to find a goat cheese or sheep cheese that I don’t like! I do really miss cow’s milk gouda and cow’s milk brie though.

    Nothing better than good cheese + crackers — except good cheese + crackers + wine! πŸ™‚

    How funny – I’ve only been to Utah once (loved it by the way and really want to go back) and spent a day at Antelope Island. It was amazing seeing all the buffalo and the views – to die for. My husband and I said that we’d move to Utah in a heartbeat if the opportunity ever came up. Everyone is SO NICE there.

    I will have to try those Van’s crackers! I love their waffles, but haven’t tried any of their other products. I am experimenting GF for a few weeks to see if I have a sensitivity which I suspect I do so I need to learn all of the tips and good products to try πŸ™‚

      I have never tried their waffles but have heard great things!

      Let me know if you are looking for any specific GF item; happy to give you recommendations!

    I enjoy reading posts on the actual blog too! I just like how each blog looks unique and reading the posts from a feed just doesn’t feel the same to me!

    I love having cheese and crackers, plus wine! πŸ˜‰

    I picked up a few boxes of the Van’s crackers at Lowe’s Foods this week (they are having a sale on lots of GF items). Just had a few of The Perfect 10 crackers with my lunch – so good! And “real cracker” crispiness! Thanks for the recommendation.
    I have been cutting out wheat – not necessarily gluten – and after caving for a fish fry while my mom was visiting one weekend, it became very clear to me that wheat is not my friend… I’ve been trying a lot of the store-bought GF options, still haven’t made the leap to restock my pantry for wheat free/GF baking. (There are three other people I need to consider!)
    This may be an odd question, but is there a GF alternative for ramen noodles? I have a recipe that calls for just the noodles (not the sodium-packet broth mix!) – break them up, saute, and then toss them into a salad. It’s one of my favorite potluck “dishes” (can you call a salad a “dish”?), and I would love to re-create it in a version I could enjoy, too.
    PS – favorite cheese? Goat cheese, with brie a close second! Especially with figs or jam/preserves. And now I have some good crackers to go along with it, too!

      nice! Glad to hear you like them! Sorry to hear about your wheat sensitivity though. πŸ™ I really don’t miss wheat that much, once I found substitutes I was ok with.

      I haven’t really looked for any ramen substitutes… so they way you use them is still kinda crispy right? (Not boiled?) Trying to figure out the texture so I can think about some substitutes.

      PS – you had me a figs. πŸ™‚

    Yes – still crispy. Probably sounds kind of weird, but I never bring home leftovers when I take this salad. I am not so intolerant that I couldn’t just pick the noodles out, but it would be nice to find a substitute. And yes – it’s much easier to avoid wheat when you have good substitutes!
