Italian Polenta Pizza (For Two)

April 5th, 2013 by Bella McKenzie


I really could not wait to share with you this fun dish that I made. Polenta pizza – something adults, teens, and children love. And it’s healthy! Being gluten free and vegetarian sometimes can be a little bit of a task in the kitchen, nevertheless when you have in-season, fresh vegetables and garden herbs and spices, coupled with a few other ingredients in the kitchen, there is no telling what you can come up with.Screen shot 2013-02-12 at 10.02.05 PM (more…)

Quinoa Pizza Bites Recipe

April 4th, 2013 by Laura Hanley

I must preface this recipe with the fact that up until this point, I did not think I liked quinoa. The main reason for my dislike of this seed was that I had a poorly prepared dish with it last year and thought that no matter what, the little gluten-free gems could never taste good. Welp folks, I was wrong. This easy quinoa recipe can be used as an alternative to gluten-free pizza dough and will rock your taste-bud’s world.BitesServing

Adding a Gluten-Free Product to My Arsenal

March 29th, 2013 by Laura Hanley

I have been gluten-free for almost four years, so I think it’s safe to say that I know my way around the gluten-free aisle at the grocery store. I also feel like I have a pretty good handle on what brands are worth buying, which products are best for certain recipes, and what my taste-buds like in general. But, I recently found that even I can benefit from the discovery aspect that the Taste Guru box-of-the-month provides.mezzetta-300x300 (more…)

Thai Vegetable Soup Recipe

March 28th, 2013 by Bella McKenzie

Although it has been warm inside with all of this baking, it has been quite chilly outside for me. And so, I thought that besides announcing the winners of the giveaway this week, I thought it would be fitting to share a delicious soup with you that I stumbled upon from Elana’s Pantry. I love Elana. She has nice recipe ideas, and her recipes actually work!

This soup is (yes) both gluten free and vegan, and adds that delicious Thai style to it, which for me, is marvelous!thai veggie soup elanas pantry (more…)

So you’re diagnosed with Celiac Disease or a Gluten Sensitivity and you’re all like, “It’s the end of the world,” and you proceed to rant about how a life without gluten is not a life worth living. Even though you might want to listen to R.E.M. on repeat and binge over your last plate of fried chicken wings, you just need to get over it.

This all might sound a bit harsh to the newbie, but you need to cope, and once you do, you’re going to realize that eating gluten-free is quite possibly the best thing that could have happened to you. Here are three reasons why eating gluten-free doesn’t ruin your life:ryan-gosling-e1362972367527-224x300

Traditional Passover Food Find

March 26th, 2013 by Candice Rose Clifford

Yesterday was the start of Passover. Although I am a catholic girl, and quite honestly know next to nothing about this Jewish holiday, I do know one thing. This is the time of year where you can often find matzo stocked on the shelves of supermarkets.

In elementary school we would always learn about the various traditions of each holiday, and I always looked forward to when my mom would bring home matzo for my brother and me. We would eat it plain, with butter, or my mom’s personal favorite with (more…)
