    I received some complimentary samples from Mixes from the Heartland a few weeks back. MFTH has a great selection of gluten-free products ranging from baking mixes to soups to puddings. Here is some information from their website:

    I received the following mixes:

    • Zucchini Muffins
    • Cajun Pastalaya Soup Mix
    • Cheeseburger Chowder Soup Mix
    • Potato Soup Mix
    • Tortilla Pasta Soup

    I passed the soup mixes along to Aaron’s gluten-free friends at work to sample because they all contained onions (taboo for me). Here is what Lindsey had to say about the soup:

    OMG that Cajun pasta soup was soooo good! I’m so impressed with how easy it was to make (I did it all by myself lol) and it has so much flavor. I put chicken with it. I’m definitely going to order from them.

    The Blueberry Muffins were very easy to mix up & bake.

    These were awesome! Jon made 2 of these his breakfast each day until they were gone. They had a great texture & flavor. Can’t beat these – easy & taste great!

    Next on my list? Sweet Potato Brownies. I was not sure what to think of these when mixing them up, but man, oh man, they were spectacular! I fed them to the kids (called them “blondies” or they would have not touched them). They both said they were great! I loved the spices in this mix! Try topping them with cream cheese!
