Severe Allergies--best baking mix!
- My son is allergic to--okay, get ready: dairy, eggs, soy, all legumes, wheat, and nuts, and he and I both have to avoid all derivatives. We also avoid corn. I hadn't eaten a bread-type dish in six months before discovering the Cherrybrook Kitchen line of gluten free products. I couldn't believe that it didn't contain any of my son's allergens, and it tastes better than a regular pancake! I'm sure most people are not as allergic as my son is, but if any ever come across this, be sure to try out the Cherrybrook Kitchen products. They are expensive but in my case so worth it.

Sugar & Spice Market
- Sugar & Spice Market has flour and baking mixes that taste really really good. They have flour, pancake mix, brownies, sugar cookies, and cake mixes.

Namaste Mixes, Beth's or Bob's flours
- Generally, I like mixes from Namaste - their spice cake is lovely. For flour mixes, it really does depend on what you are making, but Gluten Free Pantry's mix or Bob's Red Mill mix are both good.

I like Better Batter GF Flour Best
- I've tried several GF flour mixes, and the best so far has been Better Batter's all-purpose gluten-free flour. It's more suitable for baking than the flour blends that contain bean flour (which imparts a nasty aftertaste to your cookies and cakes) and it already contains the xantham gum which many of the blends suggest you add as a separate ingredient. Reasonably priced as well.
Bob Red Mills
- Bob Red Mills Bread mix is my favorite so far but I have recently started experimenting, so I am not sure if this would be the only one. I'll have to check back and get more ideas from you all...

Favorite GF Blend
- I have tried a lot of different things since going gluten free, but for me the gold standard in baking is Authentic Food's Classic Blend. I have all of Annalise Robert's cookbooks, and I like this flour the best. It is ready to go and always gives me great results, no matter whose cookbook I use, although I do like Annalise's books the best. I'd also like to mention that Authentic's finely milled brown rice flour is awesome. It is not gritty, and is a terrific flour on it's own or as part of a blend. I really like the Authentic Food's line the best. They are a little more expensive than some things, but I don't mind paying for quality: I demand it!

Authentic Foods SF Brown Rice Flour
- Authentic Foods makes a super fine brown rice flour that feels silky and doesn't have that gritty texture of most GF rice flours. I love this flour and use it in lots of my GF recipes.
