Gluten-free Dairy-free Belgium Waffles Recipe

January 9th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill


I don't know about you but when I smell Belgium waffles at those kiosks, I really wish I could eat gluten. Last year I vowed to find a replacement and I must say, I nailed it. I have made it two ways; with the caramelized sugar and without. Both are still delicious and my children are very appreciative of the effort I have made (read: this is not a quick recipe but worth the wait).

This New Year's day, I thought it would be fun to make them as a treat. The crowd (both gluten-free and not) agreed it was a winner. Read through the (more…)


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…)

Easy Gluten-Free Peppermint Bark Recipe

December 27th, 2012 by Laura Hanley

I may have. just discovered the BEST or the WORST thing ever.

Did you know peppermint bark is one of the easiest things to make? Why didn’t I ever know this? I thought the fact that you had to melt then cool…then melt…then crack and sprinkle toppings on, meant that I would be running around screaming What’s the next step?! before the chocolate hardened, like it was some type of rocket science.

Turns out I was totally wrong.

This recipe, given to me by Kathleen over at Celiac Baby, is one of the easiest things to make. It looks pretty fancy too, if I must say. I hope you like candy canes and chocolate, because it’s.about.to.go.down. (more…)

I know you might think I'm clever, but really, I'm not. Full credit goes to Lauryn Cohen, aka Bella Baker, who came up with this cute concept. Lauren is the queen of sweet and is known for her uniquely creative treats and crafts. She recently launched a holiday baking guide (entitled Sweet Gifts Holiday Baking and Crafting Guide- available nationwide) filled with innovative and delicious recipes for the holidays.

Lauryn was nice enough to share one of her creations with The Family Chef. In this recipe, she calls for a red velvet cupcake (you will find a gluten-free, no-dye recipe in my upcoming cookbook). You can always use a basic vanilla (gluten-free).

Here is her technique for making super cute holiday cupcakes for your friends or family. (more…)

FrannyCakes: Nut Bon-Bon Cookies Recipe

December 17th, 2012 by Candice Rose Clifford

gluten free nut bon bon cookiesLast April I attended the Nourished conference. This was an amazing experience for me and I am still thankful I had the opportunity to attend. Because I had school, my parents and I flew into Chicago the day of the conference and arrived at the “nick of time.” 

I quickly grabbed my badge, and walked into the first session room I saw. At the time I had no idea there were multiple sessions going on, but as a new blogger this session was perfect for me. The session was taught by Mary Fran Wiley of FrannyCakes and was all about Blogging 101. This was probably the one session that stuck with me the most, and was essentially what inspired me to (more…)

Jules Gluten-Free: Sugar Cut-Out Cookies Recipe

December 12th, 2012 by Candice Rose Clifford

You don't have to build your cookies in a tree shape - but, boy it looks cute and festive!

Let’s be honest, If there was no Jules Gluten Free Flour there would be no family recipes recreated, no homemade cookies or cakes, and no way I could enjoy something special from time to time. I may be a exaggerating a bit here, but Jules’ flour is a product I {and my mom} are so thankful for. It was the product that gave me the courage to get back to baking after becoming discouraged, and has now allowed me to take risks in the kitchen. 

Like many of my virtual friends I have never met Jules, but she is one of the “gluten-free celebrities” I want to meet one day. Not only am I thankful for her flour, but I am also so thankful for all the support she has given me over the last two years of blogging, often (more…)
