When I went gluten-free one of the many blessings in my change in diet was my openness to try new foods. Specifically, I was interested in trying other ethnic foods. As I was trying to get over my “food fear” I wanted to embrace and enjoy the flavors foods had to offer.

Saffron Road, is a company who makes all natural products which allows others to experience cuisine from around the world. Additionally they make 12 products that are certified gluten-free ranging from frozen foods to simmer sauces and crunchy chickpeas.

Saffron Road products are great because they not only allow you to experience a wide variety of flavors such as Tia Lemon Grass Basil and Moroccan Tagine, but their products allow you to have (more…)

Gluten-Free Tater Tot Casserole

January 3rd, 2013 by Laura Hanley

Tater Tot Casserole. With a name like that, how can you go wrong!?!

While growing up, one household favorite was the tater tot casserole my mom would make. She loved it because, as a busy single-mom,  she could make it ahead of time and then pop it in the oven when the time came. Us kids loved it for the most obvious reason: It had tater tots in it!

We have easily modified this casserole to be gluten-free, and can once again enjoy the comfort it brings on a cold, wintry day. (more…)

One Dish, Three Meals – Mexican Style!

November 14th, 2012 by Candice Rose Clifford

I have never viewed being on a gluten and dairy-free diet as restrictive. Of course there are many foods I can’t have, but there are many more foods I can enjoy. However, more so than I did before I went gluten-free I get in phases where I feel like I’m eating the same foods. This is especially true since I have had to restrict my diet even more due to acid reflux.

When my parents came up last time my mom brought me two 1lb containers of ground turkey. I had made a meatloaf with one and had been enjoying the frozen turkey burgers my mom had made, but with my last (more…)

“Add What You Like” Turkey Burgers

November 1st, 2012 by Candice Rose Clifford

Yummy turkey burgers! Healthy AND delicious!

Being sick at a young age and having to go to numerous doctors has made me more aware of my body. I know when I feel great and I know when something’s “off”. When I realized food was the culprit of my illness I was persistent until we got answers. There were times I wanted to back down and settle because I was tired of fighting, but thank god I didn’t.

Although I have an amazing team of doctors supporting me, I have learned I’m my own body’s expert. I know what foods make my stomach hurt and I know what (more…)

Gluten-Free Parmesan Crusted Chicken Recipe

September 20th, 2012 by Petra Aitken

I saw an advertisement on TV for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with this recipe. Whilst it sounded, let’s say interesting, I was intrigued and had to try it.

The first time I tried this recipe I bought some gluten free rice crumbs but I found them too crunchy with an almost sand type texture. The next time I cooked this recipe I therefore made my own breadcrumbs by blending a piece of frozen gluten free bread. It turned out really well, the chicken was very tender and it tasted awesome served with cornmeal mash (cornmeal mixed with milk and cheese) and stir fried vegetables.

While there are a plethora of places to dine out gluten-free in the Columbus area, there is nothing like the convenience of being able to stay home and prepare your own meal. When I found that I could buy the San-J Thai peanut sauce in local stores, I began to use it in many dishes. One of my favorite dishes to date is this very easy Thai Peanut Chicken and Noodles.

I just want you to know that I don't know and don't claim to know how to cook everything. Some things I'm not interested in and some things...well, intimidate even me. I suppose the biggest factor in trying something new is giving myself enough time to fiddle with it and being able to live if it's not 100% successful.

I've come to know Jeff Larsen who also teaches gluten-free cooking classes in the SF bay area. There are some things we do which are very similar and some things we do differently. Either way, there's a language we both speak and it's been a pleasure getting to know him. I mention him because he teaches a number of classes around Asian cooking, specifically dumplings. I have had a very good gluten-free pot sticker from Feel Good Foods but there's nothing like (more…)

Tacos! Drive thru beef and chicken, crunchy or soft may be our most familiar tacos - staples of a fast food diet. But if you've never had a fish taco, I content that you've never enjoyed the best taco of all. From South America, across Arizona and up to Alaska, fish tacos are routinely on restaurant menus, even at airports and most home cooks have their very own favorite versions.

Fish tacos, in all their regional variations are a  culinary sensation.One you shouldn't miss out on just because you don't frequent these locales. They are incredibly easy to make at home.

Gluten-free tortillas are easy to find in local groceries. This makes constructing a perfectly delicious gluten-free fish taco pretty darned easy in under 30 minutes. The best fish tacos I have eaten are made with Alaskan halibut or mahi-mahi. Spicy coleslaw and fusion mayonnaise (spicy, often citrus flavored mayo)  are the icing on the cake, when it comes to dressing up a fish taco.

Here's a recipe for my version of gluten-free fish tacos, just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Add a side of homemade guacamole and pico de gallo and be prepared to enjoy. Viva tacos de (more…)
