A couple of weeks ago I was snowed into my one-bedroom apartment for three full days. At first it was nice with the whole Netflix binge marathon thing, but after a while I started to go a bit crazy.
One of the things that made my cabin fever worse throughout the entire ordeal was my cabin cravings.
You see, along with the rest of the universe, I decided to kick off 2014 by watching what I ate, including gluten-free carbs. (I just love my daily slice of Rudi’s gluten-free bread!) This was a good idea until all I had was spinach, protein smoothies, and other healthy ingredients that were in no way desirable in sub-zero temperatures.
During my captivity, I thought of all the things I wish I had the ingredients to make, including gluten-free pizza, french toast, and other taste-bud pleasing dishes.
That being said, I felt that this guest-blog was the perfect opportunity to let you all know the different items you can make on a winter weekend, all with Rudi’s products. Be sure to stock your fridge and have the below items on hand in case you find yourself in need of some winter comfort food!
Gluten-Free French Toast | Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bread
If you’re like me, you usually have at least one loaf of Rudi’s gluten-free bread in your freezer, making this recipe a must!
Kick off the next cold, winter weekend you have to spend in your pajamas by enjoying some delicious gluten-free french toast! Most of us have a pretty good idea of how to make french toast, but if you’re in the mood to mix things up, or you need some inspiration, check out the Rudi’s Gluten-Free Breakfast board on Pinterest! There’s no shortage of recipes here and you can choose which type of french toast to enjoy, from your standard cinnamon and vanilla mixture, to a more extravagant choice.
Buffalo Chicken Pizza | Rudi’s Gluten-Free Tortillas
Be sure to have a pack of Rudi’s gluten-free tortillas in your fridge so you can make this Buffalo Chicken Pizza whenever your heart desires. The ingredients are pretty simple – most of which you probably have in your kitchen.
The pizza only takes a short time to prep but ends up giving you a mouthful of spicy deliciousness!

Gluten-Free Pizza | Rudi’s Gluten-Free Pizza Crust
Let’s be honest, any excuse to make gluten-free pizza is a good excuse. If you haven’t tried Rudi’s pizza crust, hurry up and use the Store Locator tool to see which store’s freezer section you should check!
If you’re a smart pizza lover, you probably keep the ingredients in your kitchen at all times, so kudos to you – you’re set for this gluten-free option! Pull the pizza sauce out of the cupboard, the mozzarella from the fridge, and preheat the oven. This would also be a fun time to test out new toppings since you have nothing but time to spare during a winter/snow storm weekend! Maybe sizzle up some bacon for the topping or try that recipe for gluten-free pizza recipe you’ve had your eye on!
