Gluten-Free eCookbook, Stack’d

By August 29, 2013 Gluten-Free Products, Gluten-Free Recipes

One thing I love about being a g-free blogger is getting to “meet” so many people I otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to meet. One of those people that I am thankful to have gotten to know in the past few years is Jessica Kahn from kitch+table. I’m 99.9% sure that we would be the best of friends if we didn’t live thousands of miles apart. However, I do still get the chance to review her products on the reg, and now her new eCookbook, Stack’d!

Stack'd Gluten-Free eCookbook

Stack’d is an eCookbook full of gluten-free protein pancake recipes. Now, I know what you’re thinking, protein pancakes sound like a chore, but I’m here to tell you that you’re mistaken. The pancake recipes in Stack’d are super easy and you barely even use any dishes to make them (ingredients are blended together in Magic Bullet-style blender), so it’s a win-win.

So far I have made the Blueberry Pancakes in Jessica’s book, and I can’t wait to try a long list of other flavors. For example, Stack’d contains a recipe for Mimosa pancakes…ummmm, is this real life? I’m totally making this for breakfast the next time I have a girls weekend with my non-GF bestie because these babies look so good she won’t give a hoot!

I highly recommend that you purchase Stack’d. The gluten-free eCookbook costs $3.49 on Amazon so don’t go telling me you don’t have the (gluten-free) dough to pay for it. That’s less than half of a burrito bowl at Chipotle, so you aren’t fooling me.

Another great thing about this eCookbook is that the recipes aren’t super difficult so you can actually make them on weekday mornings as well! If you’re anything like me, you’re not trying to get into a time-intensive breakfast on a Monday – Friday morning. I’d like to personally thank Jessica for keeping this in mind when she came up with these wonderful gluten-free pancake recipes.

For those of you that don’t understand the whole “protein” concept behind the pancakes, it basically means that adding gluten-free whey protein in your pancake batter makes it a protein pancake. Not diggin’ the whey? Don’t add it! (I didn’t add it in mine simply because I didn’t have any in my pantry.)

Just take a gander at the Stack’d Instagram page and your taste-buds are sure to fall in g-free love. I mean, the pictures of these pancakes are out of this world. You can also follow Stack’d on Twitter, along with its master brand, kitch+table. Show Jess, the eCookbook author, your love on all social platforms. She will appreciate it, I assure you!

kitch+table Gluten-Free Pizza Crust

By March 8, 2013 Gluten-Free Products

I recently received a special package from Jessica at kitch+table that was filled with g-free love in the form of a pizza crust.

As you know, I love, love, LOVE kitch+table mixes, and I will recommend them to just about anyone with functioning taste-buds. Two of the biggest gluten-free obstacles were overcome by this company because both the brownie mix and the pizza mix are off the chain. I reviewed the products a few months back and have been in contact with the company owner, Jessica, ever since.

So when I got a super sweet email from Jessica asking for my opinion on a new project she had been working on, I was instantly excited for her. Having received such great feedback in regards to her pizza crusts, Jessica decided to go down the pre-made route and test out ready-to-bake gluten-free pizza crusts that come in a vacuum-sealed bag. My first response to her email was, “Please let me review the crust!”

Seriously, any chance I can get to eat kitch+table products, I take.

I got the crust in the mail a few days later and when I opened up the box it was sent in, there was a huge smile on my face. Is kitch+table good at branding, or is kitch+table good at branding? Cutest.Packaging.Ever.

Directions are pretty simple – top with whatever your heart desires; bake at 425 degrees for 14-18 minutes. Since I knew how amazing this product would be, I wanted to top it with amazing ingredients. So that’s when I found a recipe for Bacon, Tomato and Arugula Pizza. Yes, I said bacon.

When the pizza came out of the oven I was so freaking excited to eat it! 1) I’ve had the kitch+table product before so I knew it would be fantastic  2) I was starving!

So my mother and I proceeded to eat the entire thing. Whoopsies. (There’s this thing called “self-control” that I clearly do not have.)

My mom made a statement that pretty much sums up the crust. She said, “There’s just something about the crust. Maybe the seasoning? I don’t know. It’s just SO good!”

I truly don’t know what else to say because that is basically it – kitch+table crust is crazy good, just like the package states! You HAVE to order some for yourself!

Gluten-Free Cherry Cabernet Brownies

By December 4, 2012 Gluten-Free Recipes

If the name of a brownie has ever sounded classy, this is it.

My friend Jessica over at kitch+table is a little master in the kitchen and used her delicious gluten-free brownie mix in this classy, holiday-esque recipe for cherry-cabernet brownies.

Brownies:

Ganache:

  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3 tbsp butter, cut up
  • 3 tbsp cabernet sauvingnon

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 325˚F. In a saucepan, combine cherries and wine. Just as it begins to boil, remove from heat and set aside. Prepare brownies as noted on package. Add cherry-wine mixture to brownie batter and stir until combined. Bake for 31-35 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

For gluten-free ganache, combine chopped chocolate, butter and wine in a saucepan on low heat. Stir until melted and smooth.

Okay, don’t try to act like your mouth isn’t watering right now. This is a great recipe for any occasion, whether it be to impress other people, or to impress your own chocolate & wine loving taste-buds. Try it out and let me know how your gluten-free cherry-cabernet brownies turn out!

 


Jessica is the mastermind behind kitch+table. After working for a food and nutritional manufacturer upon graduation from college, she was fascinated by the inner workings of the food lab. Though not gluten-free herself, Jessica began to research the diet more in-depth and was struck by the lack of tasty options. After realizing there were improvements to be made in the gluten-free industry, Jessica stepped up to the plate. Long story short: she set out to revolutionize the gluten-free baking mix world and succeeded (as evidenced by the two incredible kitch+table debut mixes). Jessica also assures us that she has more gluten-free tricks up her sleeve, and can’t wait to share what’s in store for the rest of the kitch+table line!

Gluten-Free Pizza Dough

By November 14, 2012 Gluten-Free Products

A good gluten-free pizza crust can be hard to find. Sure, there are a variety of options out there these days, but it can be difficult to find a brand that is decently priced but doesn’t taste like cardboard.

I am happy to say that I have found a pizza dough mix that is reasonably priced, not too difficult to make, and tastes wonderful. There is no questioning that kitch+table pizza dough mix will please your palate. As the package states, incredibly easy and so crazy good that you may not believe it’s actually gluten-free. No false advertisement there. That statement is 100% the truth.

I had a kitch+table baking night this past weekend and my taste-buds had the time of their life. The plan was to make the kitch+table pizza dough for dinner and then the brownie mix for dessert. I mixed up the dough, which was very easy – add 7/8 cup water to pizza dough mix; mix in countertop mixer for 2 minutes. I then spread the dough out on a baking sheet, and used a fork to prick the dough all over. Then, I let the dough rise for just around 30 minutes.

Next, I simply baked the dough for 10-12 minutes until it was fully set. I added my toppings – pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni, and baked the pizza for another 16 minutes (recommended 14-18).

When I took the pizza out of the oven I was very excited to dig in. The crust wasn’t that cracker-thin noise you get with other brands. It also wasn’t weirdly dense. I felt accomplished.

I cut the pizza into slices and loaded up a plate. Of course I burnt the roof of my mouth because I am the most impatient person ever when it comes to waiting for delicious food to cool down. After my first bite I thought to myself, Did I really just make THIS GOOD of a pizza?!

…Yes, it was THAT good.

I’ve tried the frozen pizza crusts at the store, and while they did take care of my “need” for pizza ingredients, they never fulfilled my expectations. That’s not the case with kitch+table. Every one of my taste bud’s expectations were met, and I highly recommend this product to anyone that likes pizza!
