Kellogg's GF Rice Krispies Review

Over the weekend Bear and I broke open a box of Kellogg's new Gluten Free Rice Krispies. For breakfast we had the plain cereal with almond milk. They snapped and crackled and popped away just like their gluten filled counterparts. They had the same appearance, texture and taste of regular Rice Krispies only with a faint smokey flavor. They were quite delicious and did not rip up the top of our mouths as several gluten free cereals are known to do. One box has almost 12 cups but not quite. We also made peanut butter Rice Krispie squares topped with chocolate and had to open a second box because we ran out. They had the same taste, texture, and consistency as regular rice krispie bars. All in all this was a win for Kellogg's. Thumbs up and Enjoy!

Gluten Free Rice Krispies

They're HERE!!!! Kellogg's now has Gluten Free Rice Krispies. I first heard about them on Li Loves David's blog and have been watching the stores diligently. The gluten free Rice Krispies are made from Brown rice. I'm not sure why Kellogg's made that choice since the only problem with the original Rice Krispies was Barely Malt in the ingredients. I have not had a chance to try them yet, but am looking forward to opening them up and I'll let you know what I think when I try them.On the back of the box is a recipe for gluten free Rice Krispie bars... Mmmmm how many years has it been now? I loose track of time. Guess what we're making tonight *wink* I'll let you know how they turn out later and if they taste the same as the ones I can remember from my childhood. I hope they are good, there are going to be a lot more children running around my house soon. I'm sure that they would love a tasty treat. More on that later in my family blog. Enjoy!

Wednesday Lunch

Ok, so Recipe Wednesday and Foodie Friday just aren't working out. So instead today I will show you my lunch and it's components.
~In the upper left pocket of my Bento box is 1/4 cup of fat free cottage cheese (Bear may have a dairy issue but I can have a treat once in a while. In his lunch I put some turkey peperoni in this pocket).
~In the upper right pocket is a mixture of grapes and blueberries.
~ The lower left container has what we call peanut butter quesadillas. They are peanut butter sandwiches made with corn tortillas. I also have a few chocolates as a treat.
~ The lower right container is a mixture of miniature sweet peppers and snap peas. (Yum!).
Not quite Bento, but I hope you Enjoy!

Summer Bento

Looks yummy doesn't it? This lunch consists of 2 to 3 oz of chicken, 4 cherries, 6 cut up strawberries, 1/2 a cup of rice with 1/2 a medium hard boiled egg on top (kind of hard to see, but it's shaped like a fish), and about 1/2 a cup of snap peas. MMMMMM summer time lunches are the best. Enjoy!
