Eden Organic Black Bean and Quinoa Chili Gluten Free

Thanks to the good folks at Eden Foods I was able to sample this for lunch today.  It looked delicious and tasted that way too.  I ate some of it by itself, some with tortilla chips, and also put some on a gluten free roll.  This would also be great wrapped in some corn tortillas.  My son also ate a bit of it for lunch.  It has a bit of a kick to it, but just enough to make it tasty, not too spicy. 

I love that the cans are BPA free!  Also, this is organic another plus!

From the site  http://www.edenfoods.com/

Organic Michigan black turtle beans, high Andes organic whole grain quinoa, and Japanese maitake and shiitake mushrooms perfectly cooked in a rich organic chili, organic spiced tomato sauce in custom bisphenol-A free cans.

Sofella Foods Gluten Free Brownies/Cake Review

Thanks to Sofella Foods I was sent a few samples to try.  I decided to make chocolate chip brownies with their cake mix.  They sent me a few sample recipes, so it was easy to follow.  I took the suggestion of greasing the pan and using parchment paper, these turned out so good!  They were like cake brownies.  The sides were not hard or cripsy at all which usually happens to me when making brownies.  Now to restrain myself from eating the whole thing, lol.

Here is a link to their site, they have a variety of things, and you can do a search online to find a place near you that sells them.  I noticed they had Big Lots and World Market as places they sell their items if you have one near you you wont be dissapointed.
