Win-It-Wednesday: Cybele’s Free-To-Eat Cookies – Free of Gluten and the TOP 8 Allergens!

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

cybele's lineupFinding a cookie that is gluten-free and free of the top 8 allergens can be tough. Throw into the quest a cookie that tastes good, and the hunt becomes almost impossible.

But thanks to Cybele’s Free-To-Eat Cookies everyone on a gluten-free diet or those that are concerned with the top 8 allergens – Dairy, Eggs, Wheat, Soy, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish and Shellfish – can enjoy a delicious, soft and sweet treat … worry free.

These cookies are made by a mom of a food allergic family, Cybele Pascal (on a side note… Cybele is a remarkable woman! Make sure you check out Cybele’s blog for some delicious recipes and her “Allergen-Free Bakers Handbook” cookbook for some great allergen-free baking tips and recipes!) The cookies are also vegan – and come in four flavors: Chocolate Chunk Brownie, Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, and my favorite, SnickerDoodle. Cybele’s Cookies are also baked in a dedicated gluten-free and allergy-friendly facility.

O.K. – I know by now many of you are also thinking that these cookies must be free of flavor too. But, a-ha, you are wrong my friends. These cookies are soft (like, really, really soft… which I love), moist, full of raisins, chocolate chips & chunks and all the other fixins’. So they are a perfect worry-free, tasty treat for those on a gluten-free diet, celiac disease, or with food allergies. But beware! The non-gluten-free and non-food-allergic peeps in your household will be gobbling them up too… they are just that good.

For being able to enjoy a super tasty cookie that is worry free when it comes to gluten and allergens, is the reason why I am so very excited to have Cybele’s Free-To-Eat Cookies as the prize for this Win-It-Wednesday on BeFreeForMe.com.

Win-It-Wednesday: “Gluten-Free Cooking for Two” Cookbook by Carol Fenster

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

GF Cooking for TwoIt’s cookbook giveaway time again! And this time it is sponsored by one of my favorite gluten-free cookbook authors, Carol Fenster!

Carol’s new gluten-free cookbook is genius. Living in a two-person household, Carol decided that enough was enough when it came to “over-making” recipes by preparing enough to feed a small army. So she wrote Gluten-Free Cooking for Two, a collection of 125 recipes, that are absolutely perfect for two.

Being in a household of two myself I love this cookbook. It is perfect for empty-nesters, newlyweds or even singles. Besides being convenient, this cookbook has allowed me to actually save money (and we all know I love to save!) since it allows me to cook only the portions that I need, and as a result reduce the amount of food I throw away. Why? Because having mega amount of leftovers is so overrated and wasteful most of the time! Let’s face it… the concept of eating that super-sized gluten-free casserole as leftovers for the whole week never, ever really happens!

Gluten-Free Cooking for Two focuses on those dishes that require real kitchen finesse to downsize. It may be easy to grill up two chicken breasts or steaming veggies for two, but as Carol says, sometimes “… it’s not always as simple as dividing a 4-serving recipe in half.” That’s where this cookbook comes into play!

Some of the recipes I loved in the cookbook are the Chicken Pot Pies with Rustic Biscuit Crust, Coconut-Curry Salmon, Chia Breakfast Pudding, Chicken Tikka Masala, Minestrone Soup and the Lemon Bars. All are delicious, easy to make and perfect for two! And as a bonus, Carol also includes the recipe for her signature Gluten-Free Flour Blend, plus tips for “small batch” grocery shopping & prepping.

And lucky for all of you, Carol Fenster and her team are providing us with TWO copies of the “Gluten-Free Cooking for Two” cookbook for two lucky winners of this contest!

One (1) winner will be randomly selected to win a cookbook from the entries received before Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 11:59 PM EST, and one (1) more winner will be randomly selected to win a cookbook from the entries received between Wednesday, April 12 2017 and Tuesday, April 18, 2017 at 11:59PM. SO – make sure you enter two times to win!

Win-It-Wednesday: Taza Chocolate

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

SaltedAlmond_largeI love local products. And, I love chocolate. That is why I was so very, very thrilled to find the best chocolate in the whole wide world that is made right outside Boston. Let me introduce to you all… Taza Chocolate!

Said like a true Bostonian… Taza Chocolate is wicked good.

Made with stone ground chocolate, every single bite of Taza chocolate is bursting with flavorful organic cacao beans. The process of stone grounding the cacao beans produces a bold and unrefined chocolate experience.

I love the Taza Chocolate Disks. The flavors of the disks are out of this world too. Some of them include the 85% Super Dark, Chipotle Chili, Cinnamon, Coffee, Guajillo Chili, Salted Almond and Vanilla. But my all-time favorite is the Winter Warmer Spiked Eggnog! All flavors are Certified Gluten-Free.

And lucky for all of you, I picked up two packages of the Winter Warmer Eggnog Chocolate Disks for the two lucky winners of this contest!

One (1) winner will be randomly selected to win a lunchbox from the entries received before Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 11:59 PM EST, and one (1) more winner will be randomly selected to win a lunchbox from the entries received between Wednesday, March 29, 2017 and Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 11:59PM. SO – make sure you enter two times to win!
