Luna Bar & Luna Protein – Review

So I was sent a box with Gluten Free Luna Bars & Gluten Free Luna Protein Bars to Review a while ago. I have just now finished the variety of bars that I was sent. And while some were better than others I have to say I was quite surprised at how tasty these bars were.

Since I am gluten intolerant these bars were a nice change from all the so called chewy gluten free bars out there.  Not only did I liked the bars, my kids as well as my husband loved every bar we tried. They are more like a dessert bar than a granola bar… but the bars aren’t overly sweet. AND they were filling and didn’t leave you hungry afterwards – most likely due to having a lot of protein per bar.

My absolute favorite was the Lemonzest bar to my surprise. It smelled wonderful and tasted just as good. I liked its Protein Grain Blend that was made from Soy Protein Isolate, Organic Rolled Oats, Organic Rice Flour, Organic Roasted Soybeans, Organic Soy Flour, and Organic Milled Flaxseed. AND the Organic Lemon Juice Concentrate in the bar wasn’t too overwhelming and overall it was just a really tasty creamy lemon snack.

The Luna Bars are Gluten free and non-GMO and some are made with with organic dark chocolate and oats while the Protein Bars are Gluten Free and a lot higher in protein than the regular Luna Bars.

I definitely will be buying Luna Bars when I have a craving for something sweet.

Gluten Free Ham & Swiss Quiche

Not too long ago I was at the Grocery Outlet and came across a Gluten Free Pie Crust by Silly Zak’s in the frozen section and the first thing that came to mind was Quiche!! So I made 2 Gluten Free Ham & Swiss Quiches and literally had eaten it every day for breakfast since I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!

Yeah the crust was that good that I had to go back to the store and buy a few more to keep in the freezer.

Nevertheless… this quiche was nice and fluffy, the crust was sweet and flaky and the egg, ham and swiss were oh so yummy!

Juicy Gluten Free Cheese Stuffed Turkey Burgers

 

My husband wanted me to make homemade turkey burgers for dinner. I have to say I love turkey, but never have been a fan of Turkey Burgers since more than likely they come out very dry.

I told him I would try my best to make a juicy burger and I have to say it was VERY JUICY and VERY TASTY!! I A-MAZED myself, LOL!

Who would have thunk? I will definitely be making these tasty burgers again for the family!

No-bake Gluten Free Raspberry Cheesecake in a Jar

My husband has been having a huge sweet tooth lately and has been asking me to try new desserts. He saw a recipe for a Strawberry Cheesecake in a Jar and wanted to know if I could do my magic and make it food friendly for our family. He even went as far and bought a basket of raspberries too!

Nevertheless… I worked my magic and came up with a pretty good recipe I think. And it was tasty too!!

My husband saw a recipe in a magazine of this really yummy looking Creamy Lemon Pie and hinted at wanting me to make it for him. Since Father’s Day was around the corner, my daughter and I decided to make it as our dessert for Father’s Day.

It had a silky consistency like ice cream yet it had a nice lemon flavor! Not overpowering lemon flavor at all!

We made the gluten free graham cracker crust since I have no idea where to find one in the stores around here.

Nevertheless, it was a nice ending to a long day.

Gluten Free Beer Batter Fish with Tartar Sauce

Since I fried up the yams the other night I didn’t want to waste the oil so I decided to make Beer battered Fish AND onion rings! And boy were they oh to yummy!! So glad I did!
But if you have fried fish you totally want something to dip and Tartar sauce is a great dipper for your fried fish. My husband isn’t into Tartar sauce but her tried it nevertheless and said he really liked what I made and actually dipped his fish with every bite!

My husband went to Ruby River Restaurant and wanted to see if I could replicate their Jacketed Cinnamon Yam they served at the restaurant. Anyhow, I made a gluten free version and have to say it was really tasty! My husband loved it so much that he ate a whole yam and didn’t even touch his Tri-Tip!

Finally planted the garden

I am tired and dirty, but my garden is finally in. I have some bare spots, but hoping the cantaloupe, pumpkins and watermelon will fill in the gaps.

I planted seeds back at the beginning of April and kept them happy in the greenhouse. The seedlings were getting way too large for their containers and decided this weekend was a good day to finally plant them in the ground.

Mild Curry Seasoning Rub

I wanted a nice salad for dinner last night. Basically I wanted something light and not so heavy for a meal and a salad sounded great for what I wanted. Of course I added shrimp and wanted a nice kick so I made a curry rub to season the shrimp with. Yep, my salad was perfect and the kids said they LOVED it as well!

Anyhow, all you want to do is sprinkle this rub onto shrimp, chicken or pork five minutes before grilling or sauteing to maximize your flavors and then go from there!!
