Stuffing Time!

Stuffing, in my opinion, is by far one of the best parts of a Thanksgiving dinner. Unfortunately, for us on a gluten free diet it is also one of the parts that we usually cannot enjoy.

However, there are now several brands of gluten free stuffing that you can make so that you don't miss out on this tradition!

Whole Foods Gluten Free Bakehouse sells bags of Stuffing Cubes which you can make into the perfect Thanksgiving stuffing.

Also, Aleia's produces both a Savory Stuffing Mix and a Plain Stuffing Mix which is available at health food stores throughout Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island. You can see a picture of this stuffing above.

For more information on Aleia's brand of stuffing, please visit their website at

Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice!

Looking to bake some easy, yet yummy, gluten free autumn snacks? If so, I recommend trying Mixes from the Heartland's Pumpkin Brownie Mix.

The mix comes with most of the ingredients. You just need to purchase 2 eggs and butter. Then all you need to do is mix all of the ingredients together and put them in a 9x9 pan and bake for 30 minutes at 325 degrees. It is very simple and the brownies turned out great!
