Do You Make Your Own Gluten-free Bread?


Homemade Gluten Free Bread
I have often wondered what percentage of people following the gluten-free diet actually make their own bread.  I tend to use mixes to make sweet breads, but I usually buy my gluten-free bread off the shelf, or from my favorite local gluten-free bakery Pure Knead.

Most of us know that gluten-free bread has come a long way in the last five years, so there are a number of great options to be purchased at local health foods stores that don’t contain artificial ingredients and have the taste and texture of wheat-based bread.

Still, there seems to be a rising percentage of people who prefer to make their own gluten-free bread. Some of my favorite gluten-free bread mixes to use are: Read More »

New Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Bread Recipe

Here’s our latest and favorite gluten-free (and dairy-free) bread recipe. This gluten-free bread has a terrific springiness and is neither too dry or too wet. And, it has a wonderful yeasty flavor and calls for simple ingredients that are easy to find.

When followed exactly this recipe is consistently dependable. The batter rises quickly and as the loaf bakes it doesn’t bubble over the sides of the pan. As it cools it doesn’t cave in.

It’s highly recommended that you use a good kitchen scale to weigh ingredients, don’t substitute with other gluten-free ingredients and use an instant read digital thermometer to know when your bread is done. And if you have a good stand mixer that helps too.

You will see two out-of-the-ordinary recommendations in our new gluten-free bread recipe. The directions call for using both Read More »

Gluten-free Homemade Ranch Dip or Dressing Recipe

Copyright (c) 2011 Amy Fothergill

I was sitting at the table, reviewing one of my recipes which had not been tested yet for my cookbook. Ranch dressing is one of those items you would assume would be gluten-free until you look at the label. Then you also might see all of the other ingredients that aren’t so appealing.

My kids are big fans of ranch dressing so I thought, why not try it right now?  I normally don’t make everything from scratch but I was curious to see if it was worth it to make my own.

Assuming you have the ingredients in your kitchen (which I usually do), this can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes. It’s always better if it sets but if you can’t wait, don’t worry, it’s still great.

When I made it, I called the kids over for a taste test. They grabbed some carrots from the fridge and dug in. My son then announced Read More »

Gluten-free Cauliflower Pizza Crust Pizza Recipe

Gluten free works author Petra Aitken

Yes you read right – I made a pizza with an unconventional main crust ingredient – cauliflower. I wanted to try this recipe as gluten free pizza crusts are so expensive to buy and they are often loaded with sugar. I also love a challenge and to try new and different things.

I never thought I would have this problem but I actually don’t have a microwave – the recipe I used for this crust has an alternative though, to steam the cauliflower. However I don’t have a steamer either (or anything that I can use as a steamer as my colander is plastic). Still desperately wanting to make this pizza I decided to use raw cauliflower. And guess what – it worked! So the crust stayed together and looked good, and the pizza tasted awesome!

I would love to say that I was clever enough to come up with this recipe by myself but I actually got it from Recipe Girl.

Miley Cyrus is Gluten-free, Casein-Free and The Latest Victim of Media Viciousness

John Libonati Gluten Free Works

Miley leaving her gym after a workout.

Miley Cyrus, the ultra popular nineteen year old singer and actress is the latest celebrity to fall victim to the media for being too healthy and too in-shape. And it’s all because she is gluten-free and casein-free.  Actually, the real reason is because many media “reporters” are vicious and misinformed. Their lack of concern for the truth and focus on sensationalism damages people like Cyrus, the gluten-free community and our society as a whole.

Here’s what went down…

Photos were taken of Miley leaving a pilates studio and looking SUPER fit and healthy. The media began by raving about Miley’s figure – how in-shape, fit and toned she looks. It was all “Yay Miley! We love Miley!” This was a win-win for everyone. Miley is famous, so the story sold. People got to see someone they recognize who was succeeding and looking Read More »
