Those wonderful bakers at Katz Gluten Free sent me a large box of their baked goods for my family to sample recently. We received a nice assortment of cookies, muffins, cupcakes and other GF delights and while the box was big, the treats only lasted a week in our house before there was nothing but crumbs.
Now, youngest daughter is in that teenaged, constantly-famished state of being, compounded with a need for extra snackage because of soccer training, but still, these baked goodies were really good. Some of the items were a bit dry (a common event with preservative-free baked goods) but a quick pop in the microwave for 20-30 seconds, wrapped in a paper towel, revived them nicely.
We were especially fond of the cinnamon rugelach, chocolate-dipped cookies (they ran out first) and the chocolate cupcakes. The cupcakes were so nice, my husband ate them without frosting, and he's not even a huge chocolate fan (I married him anyway). I was the biggest fan of the Chocolate Strip, a dessert bread swirled with a delectable whorl of chocolate and coffee.
Katz Gluten Free baked goods are not only gluten-free, but made in a dairy-free, nut-free dedicated baking facility. They are also kosher, all natural and contain no preservatives, so many folks with different dietary needs can partake.
I am delighted that the company gave me a chance to offer a giveaway to one of my readers, a first prize of $25 Katz dollars to spend on goodies from their website (go for the Chocolate Strip!) and a second prize of a sample pack of Katz Gluten Free goodies. To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment below rhapsodizing about your favorite gluten-free bakery item and I will pick two winners randomly after the deadline of Sept. 13, which is National Celiac Awareness Day.
You can also enter a giveaway on this Katz Gluten Free site to win a $100 Katz Gluten Free gift certificate. Be sure to mention The Crispy Cook if you decide to go for this giveaway.
Good luck to everyone!
