Holiday Product List (Gluten-Free & Vegan)

When I started this blog I definitely had a focus on entertaining because absolutely love entertaining! I never wanted my dietary restrictions or allergies to change how people felt about my cooking so I immediately started trying all the new products out there to see what works best. Anytime I see anything new I use my guinea pig (my husband) to see if it does all the things I want it to. This used to be a once in a while occasion since there wasn’t the demand there is now. Now I’m finding new things all the time!

All this demand has led to a LOT more awesome products. This is kind of a doubled edged sword because now you have options, but how do you know which ones are good? These items also cost more than their traditional counterparts and buying a couple is okay but buying multiple and having them be terrible is definitely frustrating. I get it!

So I put together a list of my favorite products. These have been fed to non-vegans and vegans alike and all had great responses. I am forever trying the new things that come on the market so I will update this list as find new things. Also please comment with anything you all have found that you think deserves to be here 🙂
