Sugar & Spice Market Gluten Free Baking Mixes Review & Giveaway

4:22 AM

We here in our home do not have any major food allergies...yet. I know plenty of people who do though and it is so tough for them to find foods that are safe for their families to eat. It is so hard to have people over for dinner who have dietary restrictions because I am so unfamiliar with how to cook for them and the last thing I want to do is make them sick. I think the biggest dietary restriction I have heard of is dairy and gluten intolerance. Gluten is found in many different foods and can be dangerous for some to eat. Alot of people don't know that they have a problem with gluten and their symptoms are misdiagnosed, unfortunately. BUT, for those who are properly diagnosed it means they are in for a long road of experimenting with recipes, finding new ideas and ingredients and totally re-learning how they need to eat. This can be very difficult or it can be very easy...depending on where you go to look for help. 
Today, I am going to let you in on a little secret. Did you know that you can buy gluten-free baking mixes? I mean the chocolate cake, brownies, cookies and all things sweet?!? YES! You can! I was so excited when I came across Sugar & Spice Market because they carry gluten free baking mixes. Before I continue though, here is a bit more about their story...

It has always been a family tradition to gather around the table and enjoy great food. With this is mind, my sisters and I started Sugar & Spice Market. Our goal was to ensure that everyone feel welcome, including those who live gluten free.To provide exceptional results, we worked diligently to create gluten free flour that would mimic wheat flour in both flavor and texture, where no one could taste the difference. In addition to being gluten free, our flour is also free of the most common food allergens (dairy free, soy free, wheat free, and nut free).

Realizing we were on to something important, not just for our family and friends, but for the whole gluten free community, we have developed a suite of gluten free products for your convenience and enjoyment. We knew we could not compromise on flavor, and neither should you!!

It is no longer necessary to prepare separate recipes to accommodate different dietary needs. Using our exceptional gluten free flour, all can come together and enjoy the same meal. Sugar and Spice Market gluten free flour provides the texture, taste, moistness and shelf life that gluten free products typically lack. It works great in both baking and cooking and is the superb substitute to wheat flour that will not leave a bad after taste, or grainy texture like other gluten free flour alternatives.

Now I know several people who are on gluten free diets and have tasted the food they prepare. Honestly, it is very good. I have also heard horror stories about how nasty gluten free food can taste and that is not something I ever want anyone to experience! I was very excited about the opportunity to review some of Sugar & Spice Market's mixes especially because I want to share them with my friends who are gluten free!
So, for this review I was sent four baking mixes from Sugar & Spice Market. I was sent: Chocolate Cake, Brownies, Sugar Cookies and Pancake/Waffle Mix. Oh my...chocolate cake!?! Seemed too good to be true. :)
I love to fix pancakes for my children. Pancakes make a fantastic and different option for lunch time and my children are HUGE fans. They especially LOVE chocolate chip pancakes so the Pancake/Waffle Mix was the first product I tried! I really noticed no difference in these pancakes as opposed to regular pancake mix. I noticed the dry mix itself needed to be stirred very gently because it was flying all over the kitchen otherwise...ha ha. I had to be careful there...the mix is really fine in texture.
When my pancakes were done I was floored at how yummy they were. They tasted slightly different from what I am used to when it comes to pancakes but they were still amazingly tasty. My children DEVOURED them and  I still have mix left over for another batch. The package comes with a resealable top so that makes it super easy to close and store.
Next, I tried out the Sugar Cookie Mix. Who doesn't love a good cookie now and then, huh? My children and husband are big cookie eaters and so I always try to have some on hand. These sugar cookies are simple to make, all you add is a few ingredients (butter, vanilla flavoring and water), mix and then drop onto your cookie sheets.
Then, you put them in the oven, turn on the oven and watch them bake...like this little guy is doing. My children LOVE to watch things baking in the oven. I love it! :)
Once the cookies are slightly browned on the bottoms, they come out of the oven and you can sprinkle sugar on the tops of them while they are still warm. I did this and they looked so lovely!!
Last but not least, try to keep your children's hands off them until they are cooled...then, you can let them try them! My children could not wait to try these Sugar Cookies! The package I made yielded 31 cookies and somehow, we ate all but 4 on the day they were made. I think I have mice...hmmmmmmmm...what do YOU think? LOL!
I am really looking forward to trying the other two mixes and am saving them for when I have my friends over who are on gluten free diets. I want to impress them with my baking abilities...ha ha! I think I may make them and take them to church for people there to try as well. I think people will be surprised to find out that they are gluten free desserts!! Oh, and I forgot to mention that Sugar & Spice Market's products are not only gluten free but they are also manufactured in a dedicated gluten-free, allergen-free, and kosher facility utilizing only gluten-free ingredients so you don't have to worry about contamination. Gluten free, wheat free, nut free, peanut free, soy free, dairy/casein free...sounds wonderful to me!
Each individual bag of baking mix retails for $5.00 but you can also purchase larger bags and larger quantities as well. Prices vary on how much you are looking to buy. Please be sure you stop by Sugar & Spice Market's Facebook page, Twitter page and Pinterest account as well for more ideas, recipes and special announcements.

So, in my opinion...Sugar & Spice Market has some delicious baking mixes! I love the variety and the fact that they are gluten free is such a wonderful bonus. Being on a special diet doesn't mean you have to sacrifice some of your favorite foods...this company makes it simple to enjoy the simple and delectable desserts that everyone loves!! I definitely recommend them to everyone! :)
