Pillsbury GlutenFree Funfetti Products Review

Have you heard? Pillsbury now has gluten free Funfetti products! Yes, you heard me right!! FUNFETTI!! Brings back childhood memories doesn't it?

I found these at my local Walmart, selling for the same price as the regular cake mixes. 

First, Funfetti sugar cookies

These are awesome! I never had the regular funfetti cookies but these taste awesome! I followed the directions exactly as posted, but the batter still looked a little dry so I added just a splash of milk to make it more moist. 

They don't take long to bake at all. Watch them closely and make them pretty small, otherwise they'll burn on the edges and spread out! 

Overall, I loved these and so did my family, who doesn't eat gluten free!

Next, Funfetti cake:

This is what I remember from my childhood! I always preferred funfetti cake to regular vanilla cake mix! 

This mix was easy to make. I mixed this by hand and didn't have a problem. With a little elbow grease, it works great! 
The cake was moist and paired with frosting was perfect!

Gluten Free Freschetta Pizza Review

Hello all! Happy spring to you! I feel like it's been such long time since I wrote a post (and I apologize greatly for that). I've been so busy with the last semester of nursing school that I can barely keep up with the studying, reading, and cooking meals for me and my husband. That unfortunately doesn't leave much time for blogging. But, only one month left to go!! 

I wanted to take this opportunity to blog about Freschetta's new Gluten Free Pizza. 

We loved this pizza. The crust was perfect and the cheese and sauce were just right. Most gluten free frozen pizzas like this tend to have a crust that doesn't get really crispy on the bottom, but this one did! It was perfect! 

It was about a medium size which was just right for the two of us. We found this at our local Kroger in the regular frozen pizza section with all the other frozen pizzas. Not sure if it's being sold in other stores or not, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were. If you've found it at another store, please comment below and let me know so everyone will know! 

Overall, I think this is a great product and I can't wait to try it again!

4 Ingredient Spaghetti

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great Christmas and a great start to the new year!
Now that the holidays are winding down and everyone is preparing to get back to a "regular" routine, I thought I would share my easy 4 spaghetti recipe! It doesn't get much simpler than this! 

This time I used Ronzoni rotini noodles, which I love. They taste great and are just the right texture! 

For this 4 ingredient spaghetti, I used:
1 box of rotini noodles
-1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
-1 8 oz can of tomato sauce 
-1 lb of ground beef 

To make: 
-Once the beef is browned and drained, I like to mix in the sauce and tomatoes and let it simmer for awhile to let the flavors soak in. I then cook the noodles according to the directions on the box and then mix in the beef mixture. 

*we don't use a lot of spices, but if you wish to, you can always add your own while it's simmering or add some tomato paste which has some spices already mixed in 

Finished product! As you can see, it makes quite a bit! It always lasts us at least 3-4 days, sometimes more. And it always tastes better as left-overs! 

Serve with toasted bread and a veggie of your choice!
