Any good sandwich brands?

I love bread! This has been a huge stuggle for me since my daughter was diagnosed with Celiacs. I have yet to find a good gluten free bread. They are so expensive to buy and be terrible to go to waste. I have found that Whole Foods Sandwich bread is ok for french toast, or toast, or grilled cheese, but to just make a big, juicy sandwich with meat, cheese and lettuce that is soft and moist, I have yet to find. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Kinnikinnick claims that they have a moist and soft bread. Has anyone tried it?

Gluten free rice crispy treats

My daughter is the only one we know in our family who has Celiac's. She is only 8 years old. Still a kid. What kid doesn't like rice crispy treats. So yummy, so simple!

Recipe: Gluten Free Rice Cereal (You can't use Kellogg's because it contains malt flavoring)
1 bag of marshmellows
1 stick of butter

Optional add ins: sprinkles, mini m&m's, chocolate chips, peanut butter, etc...

Chex Gluten Free

Oh the possibilities! Do you know all the different recipes that you can make with these varieties of Chex Cereals? Oh so many! Not to mention the yummies for breakfast! Thanks General Mills! This is the response I got when I called and spoke with General Mills Directly. One of the GREAT things about these cereals being gluten free is that they don't cost any more than regular cereals.
