Ardenne Farm Baking Mixes - Baking Even I Can Do [Review and Giveaway]

I've gotten to really enjoy baking mixes. There's something about having warm baked food that you made yourself. Although boxed creations are wonderful and tasty as well (I love them all! I am an admitted sweet tooth, of course). Anyways, so I had the chance to try a couple of different kinds of baked mixes by Ardenne Farms.

I had the chance to try out two different kinds - Cinnamon Crunch Muffin & Crumb Mix and Pancake and Waffle Mix. Both of which were gluten-free!

I have to tell you, I made the Cinnamon Crunch Muffin and Crumb mix on a night that I didn't want the usual thing for dinner. As I was perusing my cabinets, I came across this amazing thing! As you can see in the photo below, I obviously got all the ingredients together and got to work.

Let me tell you, this was a huge hit. My family actually isn't too huge a fan of this type of these boxed mixes, but they all LOVED this muffin and crumb mix. You get such a great cinnamon flavor, and the crumb mix for the top of the muffin is AMAZING. It's so cinnamon-y and flavorful. I highly recommend this for a Saturday morning and maybe throw in some good honey to add on top. This will be something I look for again.

Now onto the pancake and waffle mix! I'm more of a fan of pancake muffins (which are essentially mixing together the pancake mixture and putting in the oven; following all the directions as is). But since I made these on a REALLY REALLY HOT DAY (yet I wanted a warm breakfast) I decided to take a stab at pancake muffins in the microwave. So, mug pancakes. You know? It turned out pretty good! If you are going to do it, follow all the directions on the box, and then I would add a 1/4th cup of the mixture into a mug. Put that mug into the microwave and cook for one and a half minutes (check to see if it's fully cooked by sticking a fork through the middle; if it comes out clean, then it's done! If not, cook it about a minute longer).

Although of the two, I preferred the Cinnamon Crunch Muffin and Crumb mix, I can tell you that Ardenne Farms is a FANTASTIC baking mixes addition to the gluten-free world. If you spot this brand in your store and you are looking to buy something like this, definitely try these out. You will not be disappointed!

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.
French Toast Bites.
If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.

So that's when subscription boxes can help. It's an excellent way of finding new things to try, getting some extra snacks, and opening up your horizon to new foods. Whether you are celiac or gluten-intolerant or simply eat gluten-free by choice, it's time to broaden those horizons!
