Are you ready for March? Tips for Baking, and News for You

Greetings to our tribe, We hope you had a FAT Tuesday! Here are The Gluten Escape ® March updates for you. We’ve added a new section called “Tips for Baking Gluten Free”.  If you have questions about baking at home feel free to submit them to theglutenescape@gmail.com.  I’ll do my best to answer them! Tip for Baking Gluten Free: All about texture! Want to avoid that gritty texture in gluten free items?  EASY SOLUTION: Don’t use or purchase products with white rice flour.  Bonus: White rice flour has little to no nutritional value (and no fiber) so avoiding it will generally help increase the nutrition of your gluten free choices.  How do we make our product textures? We blend 6 flours (and none of them are white rice flour). Our blend is now available for purchase. Our chocolate cake recipe is on the bag. (Our blend is a cup-for-cup substitute, but allows you to control the texture with simple xanthan gum directions.) UPDATES: It’s March and that means Daylight Savings Time, St Patty’s Day, and the first day of Spring!!!! Here are the specials. Order before March 7 at 5 p.m. for these prices.  (Not to be combined with any other offer or coupons please.) Daylight Savings Time starts Sunday, March 12. Let us help you save an hour cooking. We’ll be running a cinnamon roll special, 4 cinnamon rolls for $10.99!!! Pick up anytime Saturday (3/11) before your clocks spring forward!  Call now 303-694-9999. St Patty’s Day, Friday, March 17. Get your Irish on! Irish soda bread at $6.99 a loaf.  Choose plain or spotted dog (and specify... read more
