1) Let's see, I had another baby. That's the second one I have had since starting this site- making it a grand total of three in my family now. Her name is Sylvia born 5/23/09.
2) Melanie found out that her local Barrow's Pizza here in Arizona serves gluten-free pizza that is super yummy for $10. I am not aware if it is going national or not, but if you have one near you tell them you want it.
3) Melanie also found out Wal*Mart carries some gluten-free labeled food storage! I will suggest she expand on this when she has a moment (nudge, nudge).
4) I happened upon this Gluten-Free Pantry mix at Wal*Mart and would show you a photo of the brownies, but my husband ate the pan so fast I couldn't get a shot. Big hit- and he's hard to please in the gf brownie category.
5) AND I heard these details from our friends at General Mills regarding their GF Betty Crocker products:
* We’ve made the chocolate chips in our cookies bigger! When they hit store shelves, they’ll have standard-sized chips.
*All 4 products are Kosher Pareve, Made in a Gluten Free Processing Facility, and carry BoxTops for Education®
*For those who don’t want to add dairy, we’ve created no-butter preparation directions and will post them on our product site: www.bakelifesweeter.com/glutenfree (Note: the site isn’t up yet, but we’re pushing for at least something to be up in early May)
*The site will also have a product locator (type in your location and it’ll tell you the stores near you that have sold the product within the past 90 days), recipes, and FAQs.
*Betty Crocker® Gluten Free Dessert Mixes are a proud sponsor of the Celiac Disease Foundation
*Folks can let us know if they want ongoing info/offers about General Mills’ growing line of GF products… If they call our Consumer Services number: 1(800)446-1898 (same as is on the boxes), they can sign up. The real perk of this re: the new products is that we have coupons that we’ll be sending to each household that signs up this summer so they can try a box of the new Betty Crocker® Gluten Free Dessert Mixes completely on us.
