Kinnikinnick Chocolate Dipped Donuts

kinnikinnickchocolatedonuts

Back in April my family tried Kinnikinnick’s gluten-free chocolate dipped donuts for the first time and we were immediately hooked! It was around this time that I took these photos  as well.

They’re in the freezer section at our local Whole Foods and they’re so good that, well, sometimes we don’t even wait for them to thaw. Although a little firmer and chewier, the donuts are just as good frozen. They’re flavourful and you won’t miss the wheat! The donuts are cake-like, though they do have yeast (I don’t know if they’re fried or baked, I know that that’s an important distinction for some). There’s six to a package, so for us that means we either get one each or two if we buy two packages. ;) (Usually when they’re on sale!)

This is what my brother says:

they have a delicious chocolate coating and tastes like wheat inside. It is the first time that I had donuts and I really enjoyed it.

There are also cinnamon glazed/sugar donuts, but we’ve only tried the chocolate dipped ones so far. We’re always recommending them to friends and family because they’re so good!

Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry (Review and Giveaway)

Amst_Paleo Cooking from Elanas Pantry

I was excited to receive an advance copy of Elana Amsterdam’s new cookbook, Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free Recipes – her third cookbook, it is one I’ve been looking forward to since last year when she announced it on her blog Elana’s Pantry and on Twitter. Available now, Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry is on sale wherever books are sold!

Elana’s cookbook is packed with lots of great, everyday recipes, including savoury. There are some baking recipes but most of the emphasis is on cooking. The very first recipe, and the one I’m most excited to try (once I’ve found a donut pan!) is for bagels, which can be seen on the cover.

All the recipes are easy and use simple ingredients to impact the most flavour. It’s the kind of cooking I like best and how my family eats as well. For lunch last week, I made the Honey Lemon Chicken (using bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs instead of a whole chicken); with crispy skin and a lemony, sweet flavour, it was a hit!

All of the recipes are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and also nightshade-free (nightshade is a diverse family of plants that include tomatoes).

I’m pleased to announce that on behalf of the publishers, Ten Speed Press, I am giving away 1 copy! To enter the giveaway, please click after the jump (click “read more”). Giveaway details and guidelines are found after the recipe for Colorful Winter Salad.
