Mmmm....GF Brownies!

Posted Aug 23 2008 3:20pm
I have to say that I am really getting the hang of this Gluten-Free thing. Last night I made the Gluten-Free bread from the mix that I purchased on Friday. This was to go along with the gluten-free noodles that we had in our Spaghetti. The noodles were great (rice noodles). The bread....well, it was not all that. It was okay, tolerable, but probably not something I will purchase again. Part of the problem however was me. The back of the box said you can either make it in the oven (which was the preferred method) or in a bread machine. Seeing how I have this bread machine that I have had for quite a while and never used, I figured this was the perfect opportunity. Well, I now know why making it in the oven is the preferred method. The bread cooked okay, but the middle was lumpy and not cooked all the way through. Considering this was my first time, it could have been that it needed longer, or any other variety of issues. I did have a piece of this bread and although it was okay in flavor, it was not for me. I really love the taste of bread, especially loved getting the french bread from Albertson's around 4 pm when it is fresh out of the oven. Well, those days are over! :(

So, this afternoon I went to Giggles Gluten-Free Bakery. I spoke to the owner and her daughter for a while (very nice people). They gave me a sample of their dill sourdough bread which was really good. She then gave me a sample of her equivalent to white bread (can't remember the name of it). It was just okay (in my opinion). She told me that her sourdough is very similar to the one I had first only without the dill, so I figured what the heck and bought a loaf. I have not tried it yet, but I will let you all know what I think. Then she brought out a sample of her gluten-free brownies. Not only were they great, you would never know the difference! I bought a 6 pack. The only thing is that I am going to have to figure out how to bake these things myself as they are very expensive. The loaf of bread was $8.95 and the brownies, well 6 of them were $15. I understand that these things are going to be more than the couple of dollars you would spend at the grocery store for product with gluten, but this is more than I can afford on a regular basis. For special occasions though I know just where to go! I am so grateful that they are there and when I am really craving bread or a treat it is nice to know that I have a place to go where the products are good and gluten-free! :)
