Pamela’s Products BIG Spring Giveaway!!!


“Since 1988, Pamela’s Products as created a new standard in wheat-free and gluten-free foods. We’ve combined the finest all natural ingredients for superior taste and texture.”
~Pamela’s Products Website

This is such a perfect statement about Pamela’s Products. I couldn’t have said it better myself. Pamela’s Products are truly one of my very favorite cooking and snack products. I absolutely LOVE all of her great mixes, cookies and even the great recipes offered on the website. I can’t rave enough about my favorite cookies…the pecan shortbread, they are awesome! When it comes to baking in my house, my flour staple is Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix AND her Bread Mix. Many of you know that I use her bread mix to make my mom’s famous roll-out sugar cookies every holiday. My sister and I recently used it to make Spring shaped sugar cookies using my mom’s recipe. They turned out fantastic as usual! Her mixes are foolproof. I just love them!!! (I have included the link to the recipe for the Springtime roll out cookies below.)

Before I begin the list of my favorite products and why let me begin by telling you a little bit about Pamela’s Products. I have included Pamela’s own personal story because it is too good to paraphrase. :)

When we think of bakeries we dream of the delicious treats of childhood, of cakes and frosting, cookies and pies…
but for me it was awful tasting allergy cookies and heavy whole grain breads. My grandparents started one of the first health food stores (and bakery) in San Francisco. Growing up in the Health Food Industry, I was given the “weird” food to take to school by way of heavy, nutty breads and small, dry health food cookies or with carob instead of chocolate. No one wanted to trade food with me!
I spent my summers in my family’s bakery, packing rice and soy cookies for people with special dietary needs. Although these dry, tasteless cookies were in high demand, they were not particularly appetizing. At a young age, I could relate to those who had to eat these “weird” foods. I imagined life with food allergies and without the joys a great chocolate chip cookie. I pondered my own enjoyment of cookies and food and contemplated what life would be like if all I could eat were the rice and soy cookies I packed everyday. I suggested making the wheat-free and gluten-free cookies taste better, but I was told that “the allergy people were fine and happy to have something”. Back then the Health Food Industry was much less interested in taste. Health food was known to be dry, hard, and crumbly but always nutritious.
In 1988, after college I left the family business to start my own independent company founded on the premise that wheat-free and gluten-free foods can taste great and that everyone should have food delicious enough to celebrate. My company, Pamela’s Products, continues to lead the industry with award winning decadent and delicious gluten-free foods.
Much has changed since those days; Health Food, is now called Natural Food and most people are concerned about nutrition and taste equally. Although my company is part of the Natural Food Industry I have always strived for something better, something different. I have always insisted on eye catching, brightly colored labels instead of the dreary packaging of the day, I was the first to use real butter when everyone else was using oil, and today I lead the pack by insisting on the finest ingredients such as imported European Dark Chocolate and true crystallized ginger for my most delectable treats.
Pamela’s Products has had a far reaching impact on the gluten-free food market and the Natural Food Industry. I love what I do and everyone I’ve met along the way. I continue to take pleasure in finding new flavor combinations and creating tasty new products to celebrate with friends. I hope you enjoy my products too!
-Pamela

If this story in and of itself doesn’t just make you want to try her products I suggest reading it again. I love the great story behind the even greater Pamela’s Products. I will be the first to attest that these products are so tasty and so easy to use in everyday cooking. Here are some of my favorite products and why I like them.

~Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix
This is my gluten free flour of choice. I use it for so many recipes. It works right in so well that my friends don’t even know what they eat in my home is gluten free. I have to say that one weekend we had some friends over for brunch and I made some great pancakes using this mix. I topped it off with my homemade Buttermilk Syrup. I sat back and watched as my friends gobbled every last pancake up and preceded to ask, “How did you make these?! They are soooo good!” When I told them they were gluten free they refused to believe me. Isn’t that how all our gluten free products should be? :)

~Pecan Shortbread cookies
First off the flavor of these is spot on with (what I remember :) pecan shortbread tasting like. They are the perfect texture and sweetness. With only 10 ingredients, that you know and can read, I couldn’t ask for anything better. These are my cookie of choice!

~Chocolate Brownie Mix
These brownies are so chewy and chocolaty that you can eat the entire batch. (That is if you didn’t already eat all the batter like I do! :) Again, some friends who can eat gluten ate these with me and couldn’t believe they were gluten free. SOOOO yummy!

~Confetti Frosting Mix
Ok, who doesn’t love confetti frosting?! The great thing about this frosting is you don’t have to feel guilty about putting artificial colors in your body because these little pieces of yummy confetti get their color from seeds, vegetables or fruits! Since we know how bad Red #40 and Yellow #5 can be for us I just love this about the confetti frosting. NO artificial colors! As if the frosting itself wasn’t already amazing, YAY!

These are just a few of my favorite things offered by Pamela’s Products. There are so many other great things to find on their website and in your local store. I hope all of you enjoy these great products as much as I do. ONE LUCKY WINNER WILL BE RECEIVING:

A large variety bag of Pamela’s Products items!!!
Baking & Pancake Mix (1, 24oz bag)
Box of Pecan Shortbread
Bag of Chocolate Brownie Mix
Bag of Vanilla or Chocolate Frosting, winners choice.
The Confetti frosting has been discontinued, but they will include two bags of sprinkles with the prize package.
ALSO… a Pamela’s t-shirt, baseball cap, set of measuring cups and measuring spoons!!!
