This tastes more like an Italian seasoned crouton than it does corn bread. For those who are celiac this is a terrific alternative, however, by the time you get done adding the butter, eggs, broth, onion and celery and bake for over 30 minutes you'll probably wonder why you went to the bother. Why not make your own stuffing from gluten free corn bread?

I love the direction that so many 'new' sodas are taking - less sugars and less calories. This can has just 60 - how does it taste? Well, the Dry Vanilla Bean is much less flavorful than say a cream soda, but certainly refreshing, and would not overpower any food you're consuming. But let's remember it's still soda with plenty of bubbles and phosphoric acid, which may deplete the calcium from your body.

If you like your cucumbers sweet, spicy and crunchy with lots of flavor, check this out. It is an excellent product. 1/4 cup is just 51 calories and 149 mg of sodium, but does have 11 grams of sugars. To the best of my knowledge the restaurateur Chef Boyardo doesn't have any relatives making food, so I find the name Jeffboyardee and illustration reminiscent of the more famous chef a bit misleading. OK, maybe it's just a joke, but a bad one. These pickles deserve better.

Coconut, coconut, coconut! Everything seems to be coconut these days - which is a good thing. Coconut oil is one of the most versatile oils and can be used in baking and sautéing up to 350 degrees. No saturated fat or trans fats, but as all oils, it's 14 grams of fat per tablespoon. While the label says it's odorless and flavorless I do taste a slight coconut flavor which frankly I think is a benefit. Imported from the Philippines.

Wow! This spread is one of the most aromatic and flavorful with just the right amount of vanilla to make it tasty and not perfumey. The combination of grapefruit and cherry juice is perfect. Make sure you stir it and don't be surprised as the consistency is more liquid than your typical jam or preserve. 11 grams of sugars per tablespoon, which is a combination of added and naturally occurring from the fruit.
