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!!

Udi’s Gluten Free Ziti & Meatballs – Review

image

I was very delighted tonight to finally try Udi’s Gluten Free Ziti & Meatballs Frozen entree tonight.  I even got two thumbs up from my husband who is very finicky!!

1943Nevertheless, I bought 3 bags since an 18oz  bag only contains two servings. I tossed all 3 bags into a large glass bowl and placed it into the microwave for 10 minutes. When the buzzer went off I stirred gently as to not to break the ziti and then placed it back into the microwave for another 10 minutes.

The aroma in the kitchen smelled like I had been making sauce all day long! My husband at first was leery and had an “OMG what is for dinner look on his face?”

One bite in he said he LOVED this meal, ate 3 helpings and told me I needed to stock up on more bags!!!So I would say he like it, LOL!!

And of course, I love easy meals like this when I have a busy day due to the kids being in Scouting. And having it ready in 20 minutes is perfect. The price was roughly $8.00 at Walmart the last time I saw it, but I bought these bags at the Grocery Outlet today for $2.49/bag which is a fantastic price especially when you are buying 3 bags to feed a family of 5. AND there was at least one helping leftover for lunch tomorrow!

All in all, Udi’s Gluten Free Ziti & Meatballs  was great tasting, easy to prepare and no one squawked over not wanting to eat. Everyone left happy and satisfied.

I will be going back to the Grocery Outlet tomorrow to see if they have any more on the shelf so I can stock up!!

 

 

Udi’s Gluten Free Jalapeno Cheddar Ancient Grain Crisps

So tonight I cracked open a bag of Udi’s Gluten Free Jalapeno Cheddar Ancient Grain Crisps to add to my Taco Salad because I didn’t have any tortilla chips. Now I was skeptical, like I always am about new chips and always hope for the best.

Well, tonight I can tell you these were D-LISH! They were crispy nice sized chips with a great cheese flavor and a kick of jalapeño to go with! And not too spicy to where the kids liked them as well!

The crisps are full of nutritious amaranth, quinoa, flax, sesame, millet, & black seeds which makes it healthier than most fried chips on the market. Definitely worth a purchase.

Udi’s Gluten Free Soft N’ Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

1617

So I received a box of Granola Bars from Udi’s — I normally love Udi’s. However, I just tried their Gluten Free Soft N’ Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars and was hoping for something that was in fact soft and chewy, but these were not. The bar was hard to chew with a crunchy texture. Not what I had hoped for. Now for flavor – the granola bar was quite tasty with a hint of nuts. Nevertheless, I was really hoping for a true chewy granola bar. Now my kids loved them – texture, flavor and all… and wanted more. I am either really picky or I just remember what Gluten Granola Bars texture use to be. If you would like to check them out go to:
