Since my oldest was diagnosed with Celiac Disease we haven't been able to make any recipe that uses Cream of _____ soup, because they all have friggin flour in them. ergh...

I did find some Gluten Free CoM soup awhile back but at $5 a can that wasn't happening. Yes I could have made it myself but the reason I use that stuff is in lazy recipes...it's not lazy if I have to make an ingredient from scratch.

Yesterday while grocery shopping I came across Cream of Chicken and Cream of Mushroom soup by Pacific Foods, it's in this  aseptic box instead of a can, totally gluten free! It's also free of any weird crap, AND it was $2 a box (equal to one can) WHOO HOO!!

Little things make me happy.

oooohhhhh, that may be an option!  Does it change the taste though?  And will it color fondant?

Beet juice makes a great dye for pink frosting!

I live in a small town, we have walmart and then smaller grocery stores.  They are just now breaking ground on a CVS. lol, but I found replacements for her favorites so that helped out a ton.  DD2s first birthday is coming up and I have to use white icing and only put the pink dye on her smash cake because I don't want her sister literally bouncing off the walls and unable to process anything.

Quoting beadingmom17:

My girls are both "allergic" to red dye...it's in friggin everything...so annoying. If you have a Trader Joe's near you, everything they carry is colored with natural colors...my kids are 6.5 and 5 and they just had licorice for the first time in their lives this past March when I found some at Trader Joe's!



Quoting Kellileanne:

So nice to find replacements for basics!  I had to cut out all red dye from dd1's diet.  It was a pain in the butt but I found yogurt and even fruit snacks without red dye!  I almost jumped up and down!

Nope...and I have no idea. I think you'd have to concentrate it for fondant. You could also use pomegrate juice, too :)

Pacific also makes one of the nicest chicken stocks, with something like 73gm of sodium (against the rather-more-usual 'reduced' sodium load of 550mg/serving!)
