The Gluten-Free Skeptic: The Best Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies Ranked

Sugar cookies are always a fun holiday treat. They are simple, fun to decorate, and an activity you can get the whole family in on. There aren’t many gluten-free (GF) sugar cookie options out there. I scoured the internet and looked for weeks at local stores and all I scrounged up were three options. However, after some digging, it looks like these are the only ones that are readily available year round. So which cookies are worth the buy and which should never make it into the cart?

The Gluten-Free Skeptic: Gluten-Free Gravy Packets Taste Tested and Ranked

It’s time for another installment! I hope you are as excited about this as I am because I love doing this series. Now, I thought this would be perfect for Thanksgiving because at least for us, were the only gluten-free (GF) ones in the family, so having easy substitutes for the host to make (or for me to bring over) makes Thanksgiving that much easier.  I finally got all the ones I could find (even after searching on google). However, since there are so few options I will also include an easy recipe to make any homemade gravy GF and you can’t even tell it’s GF!

The Gluten-Free Skeptic: Trying All of the Great Value Gluten-Free Mixes (A Detailed Review)

The Gluten-Free (GF) Skeptic was originally created to share and test GF recipes and to try GF foods from grocery stores, restaurants, and major brands to report back to you guys what’s worth trying and what’s literal overpriced GF trash. I kept eyeing these mixes everytime we went to Walmart (which has the most GF options in our area surprisingly) and I finally realized no one was gonna review them for me and I need to just do it. Also, this is the cheapest GF Skeptic that has ever skeptic-ed. So here is a detailed review of the good, the bad, and the ugly from the Great Value line of GF mixes.

The Gluten-Free Skeptic: We Tested the Top Gluten Free Cornbread Mixes, Here’s How They Ranked

Fall is upon us. I saw the Pumpkin Spice Latte advertisements and somewhere in the world, the leaves are changing. Ugg boots just increased in price and scarves are getting pulled out from the back of the closet.

The Gluten-Free Skeptic: The Best Gluten-Free Bagel Recipes So Far

If you have been gluten-free (GF) for a hot second you’ll know that the bagels in stores are either cruddy, lifeless bread rolls with a hole in the middle, are stupidly expensive, or (most of the time) it’s both. I have yet to find a single GF bagel that even vaguely reminds me of a bagel. So, I turned to my kitchen, floured up my hands, and got to work. Our pantry has been taken over from this escapade, and I think I may have finally found a good recipe, or two!

The Gluten Free Skeptic: Best Gluten-Free Brownie Mixes, RANKED

I have never tried a premade gluten-free (GF) mix before this. I see them everywhere and I feel like every day a new one enters the battlefield that is GF. While on a recent trip to the grocery store I found an overwhelming amount of brownie mixes. There were six all in one store. It got me thinking, with all the choices and the huge range in price, how can anyone pick just one? Well, that’s what I’m here for! I tried, described, and ranked eight of the most popular GF brownie mixes.
