Gluten-Free Cooking: Frito-Lay & The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness

When I saw the email sitting in my inbox from the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, I squealed with delight, as I was selected as one of five bloggers/food writers to participate in testing gluten-free recipes that highlight Frito-Lay’s gluten-free products. Which recipe do I get to test – Chipotle Frito Meringues of course (so Texas)! And to top it off Frito Lay & The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness are holding a Gluten-Free Giveaway (see more details below on how to enter)!

See you might not understand my squeal of delight; I loved Frito’s so much as a kid I used to stuff my cheeks with them as I loved corn chips so so much (are you getting the visual – I basically looked like a chipmunk)! And now as an adult with Celiac’s Disease, to be involved in helping to promote gluten-free awareness in a product I’ve loved since childhood = Winning!

So here’s the skinny – Five bloggers/food writers will be testing the following recipes and will be writing about their experience testing the recipes, which are as follows:

Chocolate and Potato Chip Cookies
Recipe tester: Cheryl McEvoy of Gluten-Free Hot Products – July 9, 2012

Baked Stuffed Tomatoes
