Chivas Regal – Gluten Free

Chivas Regal Airplane Bottle

Chivas Regal

This is a smooth blended scotch whiskey with a distinct oak taste. The taste can be a little much for those who do not prefer the woody flavor. This alcohol is distilled from wheat grains. This Whisky is gluten free. The gluten is distilled out during the distillation process. Some cheaper whiskeys add a bit of mash back in after distilling which would add gluten back in as well. It seems Chivas Regal does not add mash back in.

The Ultimate Coconut Flour Guide: Which Coconut Flour Is Best For Baking? 7 Coconut Flours Compared

Coconut Flour Mug Cake Showdown Comparison

I love coconut flour. I bake with it as often as I can and eat it at least once every day. Some people would call me obsessed. Low calorie, high protein, low carb, high fiber, this flour has amazing benefits! What’s not to love? I have tried my fair share of coconut flour recipes from other food bloggers. Most worked out fantastically, but some flopped. After reading a bajillion comments on those recipes the common consensus was that the brand of flour may be the reason for the recipe failure. Coconut flour absorbs a ton of water. Coconut flours differ in how finely they are ground and how much fat they contain as well. I really wanted to figure out which flours worked best and why.

I was in the mood to bake and immediately thought of making this mix as ginger snap cookies. I asked Alan if he liked ginger snaps and I was met with a resounding NO! I did not want to have the temptation of eating all of those cookies with no help, so I started the wheels turning in my head.

Nona Lim Red Lentil Soup Review

Nona Lim Red Lentil Soup

I recently won another Facebook Contest. This one was for a four pack of Nona Lim Soups. I received an email from Nona Lim asking if I had any questions before they send them out. I had noticed the Zucchini Soup contained corn and I asked if they were thinking about sending that one. I told them they could give it to another winner who could eat it or just leave it out of the prize. They quickly responded and said they would send a different soup for me to try. I was very pleased with their level of customer service and I hadn’t even received my prize yet.
