No more teachers, no more books, no more homework! That’s right, school’s out for the summer!!! After a grueling winter, issues with teachers and homework, my family is extremely excited to see the arrival of Summer. This year, we are celebrating the end of June in style; GLUTINO STYLE!
To begin our post school year bash, we serving up a traditional party food; Pizza. Normally, I order it from a local restaurant, but due to kitchen conditions and staff knowledge, I can’t always guarantee that my gluten free pizza has not been contaminated with gluten ingredients. This time, I decided to try out Glutino’s Pizza Mix and make my own pizza at home. I have never made homemade dough before, never mind an entire pizza, so I was a little intimidated at the thought. What if it didn’t work out? What would I feed the kids? The instructions read simple enough, so I decided it was worth the risk. I added the ingredients then dove in to kneading the dough by hand. Big mistake! This dough was very sticky! I ended up scooping a bunch onto a cookie tray and using saran wrap on top, flattened out the pizza into the thickness I desired (and hoped for the best!). After letting it rise for 40 minutes, I topped the pizzas with my kids favourite toppings (CHEESE) and popped it in the oven. The boys were drawn to the dinner table from the amazing smell coming from the oven. After 20 minutes of baking, the cheese was melted, the crust was thick, fluffy and lightly toasted. It was just they way they liked it! The kids ate three pieces each and claimed it was the best pizza they had had. They didn’t even realize it was gluten free!
Recently released in grocery stores everywhere, Glutino has created delectable treats to tempt your taste buds and leave your tummy feeling happy too. The perfect lazy afternoon summer snack, surprise treat in a summer camp care package, or in our case, a post-dinner time sweet, Glutino’s new Wafer Bites are a huge hit. They come in three delicious flavours: Chocolate dipped, hazelnut and lemon. These bite size wafer cookies are light, flavourful and the perfect dessert for little mouths! The chocolate dipped was a favourite in our household, that bag didn’t last long at all!!
