Happy new year! I admit, I’ve been poor at updating my blog in 2016 however, I have been a tad busy…
The last 12 months have been epic for GF food lovers and for me personally. I’ve got my dream job in Health & Safety *insert raised eyebrow look here*, passed my Health & Safety exams first time, found a lovely man named Gav and moved in with him. GF foods have constantly evolved with more and more available in supermarkets and restaurants having a better understanding in our requirements. It’s all been so exciting!
So with all this in mind, here is my review of GF foods that I have discovered, devoured and loved in 2016:
Tesco Free From Garlic Baguette – This has made my nights of GF spag bol complete! My only criticism is that the butter doesn’t melt very well when cooking straight from frozen. I find that if I let thaw a couple of hours before in the fridge it cooks better.
Prewetts Rich Triple Chocolate Cookies – I admit, I have devoured a large number of boxes of these wonderful cookies. I do struggle to find them in my local supermarkets now (boo!), but if you can get hold of them, buy them and don’t share with anyone!
Schär Gluten Free Pizza Margherita – Not only is this pizza GF, it’s also lactose free. There are a few different GF pizzas out there now, but I find this one to have the best base. Schär is one of my favourite GF brands at the moment.
Ed’s Easy Diner – Ok, it’s not a GF food, but it’s somewhere with a wonderful GF menu that always makes me smile. I can highly recommend the ‘Cheese or Cheese’ burger with some very yummy sweet potato fries. It’s so nice to be able to satisfy those burger needs (especially when you’ve been out the night before!). I also found out on a visit to the Sheffield restaurant that they can sell their GF rolls to you to take home. I didn’t take them up on the chance at the time, but I will next time.
Sainsbury’s Deliciously Freefrom Millionaire Crispies – These little bites of yumminess come in a handy little tub that is perfect for putting on the coffee table when you have visitors or cuddling up on the sofa on your own to watch Bridget Jones! The crispies are coated in white chocolate which makes them so velvety.
Tesco Crispy Cheese & Garlic Stars – There was no need to feel left out on the party food front this year with these marvellous mouthfuls. Perfect for a starter or just as nibbles. The crispy coating was just that, crispy, and the middles full of cheesy, garlicy goodness!
And that’s about it for my 2016 review. There have been so many new products introduced over the last 12 months, it’s been brilliant and I have tried quite a few, I just haven’t had time to review them properly.
My plan for 2017 is to share some of our dinner recipes and review some local restaurants that cater for GF.
Happy new year! x
