Thanksgiving Leftover Turkey Sandwich (c) 2011 Kimberly Bouldin

With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching,I have been itching to find ways to eat the leftover turkey. I know this may seem odd,as there is no leftover turkey yet,but I am anticipating leftovers,as we have never not had them. I wanted to get creative this year and mix things up. Yeah,turkey soup and mashed potato bowls are great,but I wanted to create a unique turkey sandwich. I didn’t want anything complicated,just a different way to enjoy the Read More »

Gluten-Free Mango Cashew Cornbread Stuffing


We discovered during the past year that my 4-year-old son Ronin and my 21-month-old daughter Ellie are both gluten and dairy intolerant. My husband John is gluten-free too. The good news is that changing Ronin’s diet has helped his anxiety-related sleep issues decrease immensely. He used to have night terrors every night, but now only has them on the rare occasions we miss cutting out the gluten.

Since John has been gluten free for a while, I came up with this stuffing recipe a few years ago for Thanksgiving. And its always been a huge hit. This year I’ve modified it to also remove the dairy for the kiddos.

It. is. SO. Yum. If I do say so myself!

Gluten-free and Vegan Gingersnap Cookies


Healthful Pursuit - Leanne Vogel

I loved the idea of gifting my homemade cake stands to friends and families for the holidays. (Thanks everyone!)

Thing is – you can’t really give a cake stand to someone without having treats on it, especially if they know that you love to bake.

So I tried to figure out what seasonal recipe I could make for the stands that I could prepare ahead of time, freeze, would appeal to everyone I know (gluten-free, vegan, egg allergies, potato allergies etc), and will stay on the stand with little concern of things breaking.

Tall order, right? Read More »

Gluten Free Recipe: Roasted Tomatoes Over Polenta and Mascarpone Recipe

polenta and tomatoes mascarponeWhen Sarah Henkin and I were trying to come up with a menu item for samples at the Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market FoodWise booth, we decided to make delicious, late summer tomatoes the centerpiece. We needed to keep the dish simple since there were some other events happening that day. Roasted tomatoes on top of something seemed like a good option to me.

Since we eat gluten-free, I tend to not think about using bread with tomatoes (although the thought does leave me with pangs of longing for Acme). My standard fallback is usually polenta. I made a similar dish last year with roasted veggies and gorgonzola (see that post here) so this needed to be different. Read More »

Video AGAINST The Coeliac Society of Australia’s Proposed PPM Change

anti ppm changes australia new zealandIssues of Concern with the undermining of Coeliac Disease care in Australia and New Zealand, the current Trade Practices Act stipulates that only products with no detectable levels of gluten are permitted to be labelled gluten free.

It has recently come to my attention that the Coeliac Society of Australia has not that long ago asked the ACCC to raise the allowable detection limit of gluten laws for a food to be labelled gluten free in Australia. They plan to change it from ‘no detectable gluten’ (currently <3ppm (parts per million) of gluten) to 20 ppm gluten. This will allow foods with small traces of gluten to be labelled ‘gluten free’ and meet world labelling definitions as up until this time Australia and New Zealand are of few countries with such strict gluten free labelling laws. In turn, this supposed to make our diets less Read More »

Dreamy Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls Recipe

 

I’m not sure if I’ve ever talked about my parents’ obsession with moving change.

I lived in a total of 12 houses in the first 17 years of my life.

Now, you may not think that’s a lot, but when you factor in that 6 of those 12 were temporary houses while our next house was being complete, that’s a heck of a lot of packing and unpacking in a short amount of time.

Sometimes these temporary houses would have a full kitchen, sometimes they wouldn’t. Sometimes they had a bedroom, sometimes they did not.

To make the transition as easy as possible, my Mom would make hundreds of casseroles. From manicotti, cannelloni, lasagna, to Read More »

Agar agar is gluten-free, vegan and works as a thickener in recipes.

Gelatin and agar agar powder can be used interchangably in gluten-free recipes, but what are the differences in these gluten-free ingredients and why are they used in some gluten-free recipes?
