This is rather exciting for me, because even I, as much as I love to cook, NEED a break every now and again! 🙂

A while back I received come complimentary gluten-free mixes from “Mixes from the Heartland,” to review on my blog. We tried the Southwest Chicken Stew, the Mexican Chicken and Rice Meal, the Apple Cinnamon Rice Pudding Mix and the Chocolate Delight Pudding Mix.
I actually only managed to photograph one meal, because I made them on the days I needed them most… when I was in a scramble to get dinner on the table!
Southwest Chicken Stew topped with shredded Cheddar Cheese, yummy!
They are all pretty straight forward; open the mix, add the ingredients called for on the package, cook and eat! We liked them all even though the chocolate pudding never set-up, but I used rice milk instead of cow’s milk so that was probably the culprit (that has happened with other brands of pudding mixes too). The taste was great though! 😀 The other thing I REALLY like about the mixes, is that they are all CSA Certified, click this link to read more about the: CSA (Celiac Sprue Association) Recognition Seal Program.
