Reviews have been a little sparse lately thanks to two cookbooks I tackled for reviews. I like to try many recipes before posting a review, and that, of course, takes time. I had to take a break to publish this review though- it has been waiting patiently for it’s turn on my site.

Product Review: Cerealvit gluten free & organic breakfast cereals – corn flakes, coffee flakes & multi grain
A yummy way to start the day! I am loving these new breakfast cereals from Cerealvit. Cerealvit is made by an Italian manufacturer and is distributed here in the US by Riega Foods, starting last month. These boxes weigh 13.25 ounces- a little larger than your standard gluten free specialty cereal. These cereals are [...]
Nature’s Path has a good reputation when it comes to gluten free cereals, but how does their gluten free version of Rice Krispies stack up to the competition?
This cereal looks like small, smooth ovals of rice, just like it looks on the box, except the actual cereal is pale in color vs. the toasty [...]
I used to really like Rice Krispies, and was curious to see if Erewhon/ US Mills could duplicate the snap crackle pop I used to love.
Well, these cereals do, in fact, snap crackle and pop just like the original gluten version. As a whole, they also tend to be less sweet than other crisped [...]
Mmmm, gluten free cereal- one of my favorite snacks.
Erewhon sent me a box full of their gluten free cereals- some I loved, and some not-so-much. I initially tried the corn flake varieties, and here is what I found:
Organic Corn Flakes: No Added Sweeteners
Up front I was a little nervous about trying these, because I [...]
Miss your old bowl of cornflakes?
Here is a gluten free version of cornflakes from Nature’s Path that is a good, solid product. I tried both their honey’d cornflakes and their corn flakes sweetened with fruit juice with excellent results.
Both versions feature light, crisp flakes that soften a little in milk, just like Kellogg’s Corn Flakes. [...]
Totally tasty, that’s what these are! If you used to like regular frosted flakes before going gluten free, you will definitively enjoy these anytime.
These corn based flakes are sweetened with organic evaporated cane juice with a pinch of sea salt. That’s it- no extra additives or preservatives. Simple.
These flakes are actually a little thicker [...]
I think I hear gluten free parents cheering right now.
For many children, Cheerios is a beloved snack for little fingers just learning to grasp and self feed. For adults, a light breakfast of Cheerios doused in ice cold milk dotted with fresh fruit is a welcome way to start the day. I loved my [...]
I grew up loving Kix cereal- it was light and slightly sweet and fantastic with fresh sliced strawberries. I used to miss a light breakfast of cereal and fruit when I cut out gluten, because back then, the one time I splurged for a $5 box of gluten free cereal it ended up soggy [...]
Yum! I love cold cereal, but my gluten free experiences have been hit or miss thanks to sogginess or weird aftertastes. This is definitely NOT the case with the EnviroKidz Leapin’ Lemurs Peanut Butter and Chocolate cereal. It is gluten free, organic, and comes in a cute, colorful 10 ounce box.
This gluten free cereal is [...]
