bread I’ve purchased GF breads, tried making   my own from recipes, and have baked from mixes that I have found. Through all of this, one brand has really stood out to me as the best-tasting and easiest bread to make. It’s this Gluten-Free Pantry “Favorite Sandwich Bread Mix.” Sorry the quality of the picture isn’t great, but I at least wanted to show the quality loaf of bread the mix gave me! And the taste is fantastic! I’ve noticed that GF flours and flour mixes tend to be less sweet than wheat, so I’ll add a tablespoon or two of honey and the sweetness is just right.

When I first saw the picture on the box of the perfectly shaped, soft, fluffy white bread I thought, “Yeah, right!” Even though my loaf is not perfect, the texture was no lie! It is soft, lightweight and fluffy!

The icing on the cake is that this bread is super easy to make! You just dump all the ingredients into the stand mixer and mix together, let rise for about 40 minutes and bake for a little less than that. Voila! Amazingly delicious GF Sandwich bread.

Live well,

Katie

 

Welcome to Gluten Free Nashville! April 28, 2009

My name is Katie Eckeberger, I’ve been GF for over a year now and I’m starting a blog  for those of us in the Nashville area that have to or choose to eat Gluten Free (GF).  I’m sure you’re thinking, “Ummm… don’t you know that this type of thing already exists???” and the answer is “Yes.” However, I intend for this blog to be much more than a restaurant guide.

It will be educational: I will post articles and excerpts from material I’m reading about the GF lifestyle.

It will be helpful: I’ll be a guide to your GF dining experience, offering suggestions as well as a brief review of each restaurant I visit.

It will be informative: From time to time I may post easy, inexpensive recipes or share some GF products that I love.

And it will be fun: I will try to post video clips and photos of some of my GF experiences, so you can see what I’m up to.

I hope all of you will stay tuned as I build my site and decide what my first real post will be about! And I’m ALWAYS interested to hear stories, get recipes, and receive tips from all of you so contact me if there’s something you’d like to share.

keep on livin’,

katie.
