My family proclaimed this “comfort food”. Never big into fried foods in our family, nevertheless every now and we all get a hankerin’ for something that hails back to our Southern roots! More
Pizza. One of the first things most folks seem to miss when transitioning to a gluten free diet. We’ve tried so many different varieties – and many of them are frustrating because they don’t hold together, must be eaten with a fork, etc. More
Okay, so one of the things we’ve really missed in our diet since going GF is sourdough bread. It’s just a lovely taste that makes our mouths water just thinking about it.
Let’s just clear the elephant outta the room right now – we all know that the lowly fruitcake is the butt of Christmas jokes everywhere – often re-gifted and never intentionally duplicated, LOL. More
These are a lovely and slightly decadent feeling breakfast that we enjoy at least once every 2-3 months. They’re fairly healthy if you don’t count the sugar in the syrup! More
I developed this recipe to take the place of a traditional stuffing (although I made a cornbread dressing as well for our Thanksgiving table). As it turned out, this was a huge hit, and we ended up with very little left. It’s a keeper. Measurements for me are not an exact science – over the years I have just developed an eye for what seems right. I do fail sometimes, but most of the time, it just works. Don’t be too tied to following recipes exactly – it’s fun to develop your own style!
So as we’ve just started this venture, we haven’t really had the time to put together a menu for a gluten free Thanksgiving this year to show on site. If that’s what you’re looking for, may I recommend a visit to Gluten Free Girl’s site?
Okay, so we’ve been primarily gluten free for the past two years. Basically this means that I haven’t used any flours containing gluten in my kitchen (they’ve been relegated to the highest shelf in my pantry where one needs a step stool to reach them). I’ve also been reading labels and trying to avoid buying anything with wheat. Sadly, though, until recently – we have been “cheating” by eating breaded seafood, chicken, etc. when we go out to eat – or removing the bun from the burger or chicken sandwich. More
So for dinner tonight eldest daughter (nicknamed Kiba) helped make her sister’s birthday dinner. I say helped – more accurately – I was the helper! This child is the one we call our “pastafarian” and the one holdout to our gluten free lifestyle – but she’s working on it and getting better. She loves everything Asian, so as Pad Thai noodles are made of rice and gluten free, we use them frequently. More
