Warm Sunbutter & Raspberry Jelly Sandwich On Bob’s Red Mill Bread

Bob’s Red Mill Wonderful Gluten-Free bread mix once again over here in the Give It A Whirl Girl Kitchen. This time I was craving a peanut butter & jelly sandwich so I ventured into the kitchen to make my own loaf of bread. I also had some jars of Sunbutter Sunflower Seed Spread that I needed to try out and a jar of Herkner Farms Champagne Raspberry Preserves that I picked up at Devries & Company 1887. I had all of my ingredients and all I kept thinking about was how this would be the greatest wannabe peanut butter & jelly sandwich of all time. This was my first time giving Sunbutter a whirl and I was so excited to try it. read more

Cinnamon, Raisin, & Flax Gluten-Free French Toast With Bob's Red Mill and Chef Shamy

Bob’s Red Mill Bread Mix REVIEW – Cinnamon, Raisin, & Flax Gluten-Free French Toast With Chef Shamy

Freshly baked bread is amazeballs! I wasn't sure what to have for dinner and then I got that brinner (breakfast for dinner) craving. I also had a bag of Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Bread Mix in my pantry. I will tell you this too, I am always looking for a reason to put my apron on and get busy in the kitchen afternoon. So my Tuesday was spent working on a loaf of cinnamon, raisin, and ground flaxseed bread. This bread was simple to make and actually fun. I made the bread with the intention of using it for French Toast. I always enjoy making my own bread for French Toast. It is a rewarding feeling making an entire meal from scratch. I think the use of Chef Shamy's amazing butter really helped make this bread extra special.
