Our House Gluten Free Baking Mixes Review

Our house

Gluten issues is something that has been going on in our family for a while now, and it always amazes me how bland and tasteless the products are that are available.


Recently, my sister and I got to try the Our House baking mixes.  We honestly had never tried to make anything out of gluten free all purpose flour, but decided there was no better time like the present. our house

The recipe for biscuits was a lot different than what we normally do. The recipe called for:

  • 1 ½ cups Our House Gluten-Free Baking Mix (228 grams)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp vegetable shortening
  • ¾ cup milk (or milk alternative)
  • 1 large egg (or 1/3 cup applesauce)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

OUR HOUSEWe also are used to cutting out the biscuits, so we went ahead and did that.

Baking was about normal, and they looked just like normal biscuits when they came out of the oven.  The texture at first was a little different though.  You could tell they were a little different than normal biscuits. It almost felt like we had added a little bit of finely ground cornmeal to the mixture.


Overall, I think our biscuits made from the Our House Gluten Free All Purpose Baking mix turned out really well.  You could tell there was something a little different about them, but the biscuits were very good.


My next adventure is to try the Our House Bread Mix, which can be put in the bread machine (kind of excited about that part).

If you are interested in purchasing any of the Our House mixes or flour, you can find them on their site https://ourhousegf.com.  The prices are really not all that bad compared to other gluten free products out there, and well worth EVERY penny.

Our House also has several really awesome gluten free recipes on their website for things like blueberry cobbler, peanut butter cookies, and so many more.  It’s worth checking out if you are one of the many who are not able to eat gluten.

Premium Silicone Heat Resistant Gloves

Premium Silicone Heat Resistant Grilling BBQ Baking Gloves

I recently received a pair of AYL premium silicone heat resistant gloves to review.

Here is a note from the manufacture:

You should know what separates us from the competition, its simple really:

– The Most Popular Silicone Cooking And Grilling Gloves Available!
– Heat Resistant For Temperatures Up To 425 Degrees Fahrenheit
– 100% Waterproof, Covers Your Wrist, Keeps Hands Safe and Dry
– Lightweight, Flexible, No Slip Grip Design To Allow Safe Movement Of Hot Items, Easily Grab Carved Hot Juicy Meats
– No Staining or Smell: Even After Long Term Use
– Dishwasher Safe, Easy to Clean
– BPA-Free
– FDA Approved
– 1 Size Fits All

This is the second pair of silicone heat resistant gloves that we have used. The best part about the AYL silicone gloves is how heat resistance they are. You take hold things that are hotter and for a longer duration than a cloth glove. They also have a nice texture so that it is easier to grab hold and hold onto things. Since it is silicone you don’t have to worry about hot water seeping in through the gloves or getting them stained. Most of the time if you get any thing on them you can just run them under some water. Another thing that we have noticed is that the silicone gloves do not wear as easily so you don’t have to worry about getting holes.

These AYL silicone gloves do work great for BBQ as well, I like that they are water proof so that if you set them down you don’t have worry about them absorbing water. Another advantage of silicone is that they don’t stay hot after handling hot items. With a lot of thicker cloth gloves they usually end up having wet spots or variations in the heat resistance. Since you don’t wash silicone gloves like cloth gloves you don’t have to worry about the fabric getting bunched up in different places.

If you have never owned a pair of silicone gloves, and you enjoy cooking you should do yourself a favor and pick up a pair of AYL silicone gloves on Amazon (Currently $19.99)or from a local retailer. They cost a little bit more than cloth gloves, but last a lot longer and are much more enjoyable.
