Internationally Renowned Chef Walter Staib Cooks Gluten-free!
Renowned chef, restaurateur and television personality, Chef Walter Staib, regularly includes gluten-free recipes on his PBS show, “A Taste of History.”
His City Tavern in Philadelphia is a faithful recreation of an original 18th century tavern where Chef Staib brings history to life with his wonderful dishes. He has made numerous appearances on local and national cooking shows, such as The Food Network’s Best Thing I Ever Ate and Iron Chef.
Chef Staib is the culinary ambassador to Deborah Heart & Lung Center, a hospital in New Jersey. He develops heart healthy recipes approved by nutritionists for a heart healthy diet, and then appears weekly on CBS to demonstrate them. We were thrilled when Chef Staib offered to provide Glutenfreeworks.com one of his incredible gluten-free recipes. (more…)
Last weekend my Aunts Sue and Patti invited us over for dinner and some delicious gluten-free, crust-free cheesecake for my birthday. While we were there hanging out in the kitchen chatting with my Aunt Bryan and I started flipping through the Kraft Foods magazine “Food&Family” and Bryan kept picking out recipes he wanted me to make. We do this often. I’ll get a new magazine or cookbook and I’ll flip through it then give it to him to pick out what he wants to try first. So in this one, he picked out a few but the one he wanted first (aka, the next day!!) was the Cheddar-Shrimp Nachos.
They looked delicious in the picture, but I changed a few things around (go figure) to make them suitable for the both of us to enjoy but also I wasn’t a fan of some of the ingredients and wanted (more…)
When the weather turns cool, I think comfort foods. With a busy day ahead, I knew my crock pot would come in handy. Once again, it delivered, even with a power outage toward the end of its cycle!
Here’s a delicious recipe for beef stew which I have converted to gluten-free. To make it “with gluten”, use regular flour instead of the white rice and potato starch. The process and seasonings are the same.
We are very lucky to have quality beef right down the road, fromMarkegard Family Grass-Fed. The test is in the taste which truly delivered. It wasn’t too greasy, either, and was very tender. (more…)
About one month ago, I put out my Breakfast Millet article to rave reviews. I had gotten so many emails thanking me for putting out the article and most of them requesting that I put out another one for a savory millet dish. As I am not one to disappoint may I just say…..the millet saga continues.
I seriously never get tired of talking about millet. Delicious, healthy and versatile millet is a lot like rice and can be the vehicle to transform even the most mundane dish into something exciting. To get the scoop on the health aspects and back story of millet, (more…)
Squash and Turkey Bacon Hash on Arugula and Mixed Greens
Squash and turkey bacon hash takes a savory-sweet spin on many of the usual Thanksgiving ingredients – a spin that is tasty and very nutritious! The secret to the development of the flavors is being patient and allowing the ingredie (more…)
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 (more…)
Fall is here and that means pumpkins are starting to appear on your neighbor’s door step and in grocery stores, which is the universal signal to start carving and cooking pumpkin. Why is it most of us tend to cook with pumpkin only around Halloween and Thanksgiving? Pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A, fiber and it is low in calories, so we should find ways to work it into our diet throughout the year.
Pumpkin is very versatile to cook with, so it can be used in both sweet and savory recipes. This Examiner did a little research for gluten-free pumpkin recipes and was amazed at all of the drool-worthy recipes we found. Listed below are just a fraction of the gluten-free pumpkin recipes available online.
I always have such good intentions when it comes to food. I often go to bed after reading a cookbook and dream about the amazingly healthy and delicious food that I will make the next day. “Tomorrow will be different,” I tell myself. “Tomorrow I will cook a healthy lunch for myself, do some baking and
perhaps even change out of my PJ’s before lunch.”
But more often than not, this ideal day never happens.
However, today was different. There weren’t (more…)
Fish is one of my favorite things to eat, but sadly I don’t cook it enough. We eat a lot of sushi in our house because Bryan isn’t a huge fan of fish when it is cooked, except for swordfish. He’s eaten a few cooked fish dishes that I’ve made but like I said, I don’t cook it often enough.
A few months ago we went to a local restaurant because he was craving swordfish. He had his grilled with a bruschetta topping to it while I had a delicious piece of mahi-mahi with a mango salsa on top. He was a bit jealous of my salsa and wasn’t such a fan of the bruschetta. I promised him the next time it is on sale we would pick up a piece and I would cook it however he wished. He asked for it to be grilled with a mango salsa, similar to the one I had on my mahi-mahi.
Lucky for him, swordfish was on sale this week! So keeping true to my promise we (more…)
