Foster Farms Honey Crunch Gluten Free Corn Dog Review and Giveaway

Months ago while Honey and I were shopping at Kroger I noticed gluten free corn dogs. I said something about them and Honey told me to go back and buy some but I didn't because I just didn't feel like I needed them. When you continue to gain weight there are just some things you have to do without. Much later while preparing to watch college football on Saturday and thinking about what type of stadium food we would be having for lunch I thought about those corn dogs and wished that I had a box at that very moment. I make my own and they are great but I have found that there are days, and football Saturday is one of them, when I want to be lazy and put little preparation into our meal.

When Foster Farms contacted me about reviewing one of their products and conducting a giveaway imagine my surprise when I found out that I would be reviewing corn dogs during football season. Wow it doesn't get any better than this! Here's a picture of what I received.

My Review:

I loved eating my a couple of corn dogs while watching college football, it made me feel like a kid again and they were wonderful. I allowed Honey a bite, only one, so he could tell me what he thought and he really liked them too.


We both agreed that they are covered in a slightly sweet crunchy batter while maintaining that moist flavorful center. I stopped after two but could have easily eaten more, I promise they won't last long.

Butterscotch Bundt Cake

The perfect cake for Fall, so easy and yummy too! A lady from our church whom I dearly love passed this recipe on to me so I knew ahead of time that it had to be a winner. I have never used one of her recipes that I was dissapointed with.

Also it's really easy to convert this one to gluten free which I LOVE!

Creamy Decadent Gluten Free Oatmeal

Recently Honey and I have undergone a major surgery on his shoulder and my hand. Is this a sign up growing older? If so we're doing it first class.

Our Sunday School class has brought food to us several times this year, maybe we'll give them a break next year. I sure hope so!

When my friend delivered one of our meals she brought me a package of the new Chex Gluten Free Oatmeal. Thank you Kathy!

This morning was rather cool so I decided to try my new treat for breakfast. Oh my word is all I can say. Really it was the best oatmeal I have ever eaten and I will be able to have many more bowls. You may think I'm saying all of this because I'm partial to the gluten free lifestyle but I am telling you the truth!

So I want to share my recipe with you.

Creamy Decadent Gluten Free Oatmeal


Ingredients:
1/2 cup Chex Original Gluten Free Oatmeal
1/2 cup of your favorite Coffee Creamer (I used Dunkin Donuts regular)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions:
Add creamer, milk, oatmeal and cinnamon to a small boiler. Heat on medium until boiling and cook until desired consistency, about one minute. Stirring constantly.

Spoon into your favorite bowl and enjoy while still hot.

Pumpkin Parfait

It's fall y'all and I love this cooler weather.

I made a Coconut Cake for my daughter and family and no it was not gluten free. Since then I have been wanting a dessert sooo bad but due to weight gain I have refrained. Recently I came across a pumpkin cheese cake dessert and it sounded wonderful and easy with not too many calories so I decided to modify it a bit and make a parfait. This way it would be small and we could eat a little at a time. It was a hit. Neither honey nor I are a fan of pumpkin but we ate every bite of this, over a period of time of course. It was really good!!

Here's the way I made it.

Pumpkin Parfait

serves 6 to 8
Ingredients:

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree
3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 1-ounce package sugar free cheesecake-flavored instant pudding mix (or 1/3 of a non-sugar free instant pudding may be used)
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 12-ounce container frozen whipped topping, plus extra for garnish if desired

Instructions:
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese until light and creamy.
  2. Add the pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and pudding mix and beat until completely mixed, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl to ensure that all ingredients are well combined.
  3. Add the sweetened condensed milk and mix again until well combined.
  4. Change your stand mixture attachment to the wire whisk. On slow speed, fold in the tub of Cool Whip until well combined.
  5. Allow the mixture to sit in the refrigerator for about an hour to firm up.
  6. Dip or pipe into your favorite tall class and add whipped topping for garnish if desired.
