So I haven't been making many new gluten free dishes or trying new gluten free things so I haven't posted but I did try Kinnikinnick's frozen gluten free cinnamon sugar donuts today and oh man they are delicious! I really did not like donuts before I went on this gluten free diet (by did not like I mean, I ate maybe one a year if that) but maybe because of the lack of good bread items, I decided to give these a shot and wow, I thought they were really tasty. Warmed up in the microwave with the cinnamon sugar on the outside..well if you want some nice dough with cinnamon sugar warmed up, these are for you. They were slightly expensive-I found them for $5.99 with 6 donuts in a pack so that's about a dollar a donut and they are not large but after all the disappointing breadish items, this one is a real winner.
I was so excited when I saw these ice cream sandwiches in the freezer section. And they did not disappoint! The sandwich cookie part is a little bit different than regular ice cream sandwiches of course but once you've had a few bad gluten free things (maybe my expectations are lowered but whatever), it's so exciting :-)

Top with salsa and remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake, uncovered, an additional 5 min. or until cheese is melted.
This granola with oats free of cross-contamination is amazing! I don't know about all the different flavors, but the all natural tastes awesome. I had it with some milk on it and I bet any way you like your granola you would like this kind!

So I only made it through two bites of this pizza. The cheese on this is soy cheese. Soy milk I am a fan of; soy cheese...not so much. If you are used to cheese alternates and such this might be great, but for a regular pizza gluten free substitute, it is not a good choice. Besides, it says "processed in a factory with wheat" on the back. How can it say it's gluten free then? Very disappointing product.
