Food for Good Thought Pizza Crust Mix - Make Your Own Gluten-Free Pizza Dough [Coupon Inside!] [My Review]

I had the chance to try out a pizza dough mix by Food for Good Thought (and sold by this great company bTizzy, which sells product made by people with disabilities). And I was intrigued by doing this, because I'm usually going out to buy pre-made crusts that are frozen so I was really eager to try something that had more of a homemade flavor to it.

I went out and purchased the few ingredients needed (not many at all - cider vinegar, olive oil (which I always have on hand), dry active yeast (found some that was gluten-free) and of course, water. 


When I started making the pizza crust, I made a tiny error in the first batch - I didn't follow the water amount directions! I added a cup of water, the directions called for 1 and 1/3. But it turns out, my accident, made the crust a consistency that I could more easily work with. The second time around I though the dough was a bit too liquidy and sticky.

But here's a premiere of how things went on that first batch -

Gluten-Free Food Ideas: Santa Cruz Peanut Butter Powder & My Surprisingly Positive Experience

When I had the chance to try out Peanut Butter Powder made by one of my favorite peanut butter companies Santa Cruz Organics, I was...reluctant. Peanut Butter POWDER? I'm imagining those big huge containers that you can buy in bulk at the health store, a nerve wracking container overloaded with these strange vitamins and odd things. So with great dread examined the packaging for ingredients.

And you know what the ingredients contained? Organic Peanut Powder.

No weird ingredients or overloaded additives. Just peanut powder. Immediately I started feeling pretty positive about the experience.

First taste test with the peanut powder is I added a tablespoon in my yogurt. I mixed it in with blueberries and cinnamon (with vanilla Chobani yogurt!) and I have to say that I was impressed! I could have added SO much more to my yogurt, it gave it a sweet extra something-something to the yogurt. It really enhanced the experience and just knowing I had that added taste made my yogurt extra ama…

Renuzit Sensitive Scents - Make Your Home Smell Fresh! [My Review]

I love when I get the chance to try something out that makes my home smell nice! Whether it's essential oils, candles, or other scented items, I really enjoy them all! Lately I had the chance to try out a variety of items by Renuzit! I tried out three items pictured below and wanted to tell you about each of them -

Pure Ocean Breeze Scented Oil Plug In (Find out more details here)





This is by far my favorite to use. I plugged it into my bathroom and it gave it such a refreshing scent and it kind of spilled out (scent-wise) into the hallway. It was a light scent, but not so light you couldn't smell anything. I'm not overly sensitive to scents so I was glad that I could actually smell this one. It slightly vanilla scented smelling to me and it worked perfectly for me. It lasted a couple of weeks before the scent started to fade a bit and I can't wait to buy more to refresh the experience.

Gluten-Free for Dinner - Spicy Gluten-Free Pasta Sauce - Costantino's Kitchen [My Review]

I am such a huge fan of pasta dinners and couldn't wait to take the opportunity to try a brand new sauce for spaghetti night! Are you looking to try a new pasta sauce? Well if you are, I found one you should really take a look at, it was so delicious.

I had the chance to try out pasta made by Costantino's Kitchen. Their history begins in Italy with the matriarch of their family Angie Mariani Costantino who taught her grandson how to make these delicious sauces. Great care is taken when making these tasty sauces and I am so happy to hear about their Italian roots! Read more about their company history here.

I had the chance to try out their Arizona Arrabbiata. I'm a huge fan of this sauce and I had it for my weekly spaghetti night - just take a look at that tasty dish -
