Our House Deliciously Gluten Free Cornbread Mix

Recently I received some gluten free products from Our House. They offer a complete line of gluten free baking mix products including all purpose baking mix, pancake and waffle mix, cookie mix, chocolate brownie mix, bread mix, and cornbread mix. Their products are not only gluten free but are also made with no other allergens – no milk, eggs, peanuts, or tree nuts.

This week I tried the Our House Deliciously Gluten Free Cornbread Mix.


Our House Deliciously Gluten Free Cornbread Mix Ingredients & Directions:
1 box Our House Gluten-Free Cornbread Mix
1 ½ cups milk (any type)
2/3 cup oil
3 large eggs (or 1 cup applesauce)
(Makes 20 squares)

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees
2. Grease 9 inch square baking pan
3. Add milk, oil and eggs to cornbread mix; mix until smooth
4. Pour batter into pan and bake 30-45 minutes or until done and golden brown.


This cornbread was very easy to make and tasted excellent. It is by far the best gluten free cornbread I’ve tried so far. I gave a piece to my grandfather to taste, and he couldn’t tell the difference and kept saying that it tasted like “real cornbread.” In fact, he later snuck back into the kitchen to eat another piece he liked it so much!


I’m really looking forward to sampling some of their other gluten free products. If you’re interested in trying the Our House gluten free products, you can find them at Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Ingles, and Lowes Foods. You can also order directly from their website.



Gluten Free at The Melt Shop

The Melt Shop is known for offering delicious comfort food in locations all around New York City. It first caught my interest while eating next door at The Little Beet. I could tell from their advertising that they were known for sandwiches – in particular grilled cheese sandwiches – so I figured I wouldn’t be able to eat there. Thankfully, I was wrong.



The Melt Shop has a wide selection of sandwiches – all of which can be made with gluten free bread for an extra $1. I ordered the Maple Bacon Sandwich which had aged cheddar, brick spread, and maple glazed bacon on white gluten free bread. I am not at all exaggerating when I say it was the best grilled cheese sandwich I have ever had! I love cheese and it was literally pouring out of the sandwich, and they were very generous with the amount of bacon.

I ordered the Strawberry Lemonade to drink which was very refreshing on a hot day.

I did speak to the manager behind the counter to make sure that extra precautions were made to ensure that my gluten free sandwich would be kept away from the others. While I had no problems eating at the Melt Shop, I would advise speaking to a manager if you decide to eat there.

Speaking of grilled cheese sandwiches, what is your favorite sandwich topping?
