I get so much joy when I cook for others, so last Saturday I threw a little dinner party at my house with two of my close friends. There are so many positives to this:
Positives: I love to cook and bake, It makes me happy, allows me to escape the pain, I can eat a safe meal with friends, I can try out a new recipe, my friends love my cooking, and most importantly, we always have a good time together.
Today I am going to share with you the dessert I made for the dinner party. It was a cake recipe my mom got from a friend, which I converted to be gluten/dairy free. When making the recipe I had to (more…)

Do I really need to go out and buy a new toaster? Will I really get sick from crumbs?
The above questions are asked at the same time that the overwhelming feeling of what has my life become? starts to set in.
Do you have a dedicated gluten-free toaster? I do. I went out and got one the day I went gluten-free. If I was going to do this whole change my lifestyle thing, I was going to do it right. That’s just the kind of person I am though. I don’t half-*** anything, so I definitely wasn’t going to cut any corners as I got myself healthy. No way, no how.
But, not everyone feels the way I feel. Maybe they don’t get the same symptoms from gluten that I do, and see this all as a bunch (more…)

Recent Court Settlement Sets Strong Precedent for Gluten- and Allergen-Free Accommodations; NFCA Urges Colleges and Universities to Take Action.
Ambler, Pa. (Jan. 15, 2013) – Students choose their college or university based on a number of factors. Their ability to find a meal on campus shouldn’t be one of them.
According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA), an estimated 1 in 131 Americans is affected by celiac disease. These individuals require a strict, lifelong gluten-free diet – including when they’re at college.
“Students are coming home on break to find they have elevated blood levels or have lost significant weight because they’re not getting the gluten-free nutrition they need,” explains Alice Bast, founder and president of NFCA. “It’s a serious threat to their health, and it’s time the schools paid attention.”

This recipe is a combination of two recipes/techniques. It's broken down into 4 steps:
1. Marinate the meat and prep the sauce. 2. Cut the veggies. 3. Cook the veggies. 4. Cook the meat. 5. Put it all together and enjoy.
I grabbed some of the veggies (cabbage, mushrooms and scallions) from the salad bar for easy prep and used cooked green beans from the fridge along with shredded carrots. When I cook, I usually prep as I go to save time but forgot that the flat snap peas take some time to take off the string in the center. Note to self: prep the veggies first!. Once you start cooking, it all comes together very quickly.
The meat is delicious on its own so you can use this part of the recipe to make Asian beef anytime. The orange rind is added at the end so (more…)

If you have ever enjoyed the experience of eating "pot stickers" before going gluten-free, you know how delicious and fun these savory Asian pan-fried dumplings are. They're fun to make too!
Traditionally pot sticker wrappers - similar to wonton wrappers, are made with wheat flour. While I've thought about attempting to make a gluten-free wonton for some time, it wasn't until I bought Laura B. Russell's cookbook, The Gluten-Free Asian Kitchen that I actually went for it.
Our gluten-free pot stickers will stick to the pan, just like wheat-made pot stickers, so read the instructions carefully and then have fun making this recipe. (more…)

Kimye’s baby and the gluten-free diet have a few things in common. What are they you may ask? Well, here ya go:
Just like Kimye’s baby, the gluten-free diet isn’t second nature right when it’s sprung on you. At first you’re completely overwhelmed, thinking of how different life will be now, but you gradually get used to the idea of the whole thing. You get into a routine and oftentimes change your habits.
I’m sure motherhood is the same way (although I don’t want to find out for another 7-10 years). (more…)

Gluten-eaters often ask me, “Don’t you wish there was some ‘magic’ pill?”
This question arises when I have limited choices on a menu, or have to pass the basket of bread without indulging. My response usually includes a “Not really”, with some type of short explanation on why my life doesn’t suck because I’m gluten-free.
I can honestly say that I don’t feel like I’m missing out. I am happy with my diet. Just because I can’t choose a roll from the gluten-filled bread basket, doesn’t mean my life has crumbled into ruins.
So if there was a pill, would I take it? If I had the ability to indulge in gluten-filled food with the comfort of knowing the so-called ‘magic’ pill would alleviate my symptoms as well as prevent the damage to my intestines, would I be poppin’ it back on the regular? (more…)
