Apple Spice Hummus: Dessert Hummus with a Healthful Edge

I recently attended a gluten, dairy, and soy-free cooking class at Williams-Sonoma at The Forum in Norcross. All of the recipes we sampled were quite tasty, but the Apple Spice Hummus was ‘smack you lips’ fantastic. I have never had what I deem to be dessert hummus before and one that was also healthful, so I just had to share. Read More »

Are You Eating A Low Fiber Gluten-Free Diet?

glutenfreerooseveltlodgebeans[1]Did you know that eating a low fiber diet puts you at an increased risk for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease — including heart attack and stroke, obesity and even colon cancer? Obviously getting enough fiber in our diets is extremely important for our long term health.

Gluten-free diets don’t have to be low fiber diets but if you’re eating a lot of packaged gluten-free foods, especially snack foods made with refined gluten-free ingredients like white rice flour and corn starch, you may not be getting close to the daily recommendations for fiber.

So what kind of fiber is best and how much fiber do we really need to eat every day to support good health?

Types of Dietary Fiber and Health Benefits

Three kinds of dietary fiber have been identified — soluble fiber, insoluble fiber and one you may not have heard about before called resistant starch. Each type of fiber has unique chemical properties and Read More »

Asian Chicken Meatballs over Sesame Noodles

These meatballs are very similar to the filing of a dumpling or wonton without the wrapper. My family really enjoys them. They are gluten-free and dairy-free and can easily be made paleo. I recently brought these Asian chicken meatballs over sesame noodles to a party. It was a big hit! For a paleo version, serve them over zucchini noodles and check the ingredient list; there are a few adjustments. Read More »

Banana ‘Scream with a Kick Recipe

Cheryl Harris Gluten Free Works

Life has been busy—issues with construction, permits, fire hazards and the like.  And our oven broke.  So lately it’s been all about the quick and easy.

And what’s quicker and easier than Banana ‘Scream?  It takes about 2 minutes from start to finish, simple, and totally customizable to pretty much any diet (except a banana allergy).  We tend to have browning bananas go to freezer heaven, and the lucky ones are found and made into dessert before they become a mass of ice crystals.

1 banana, frozen, chopped into 5-6 chunks
1 TBSP liquor (chocolate liquor, Frangelico, whatever) Read More »

Be a ‘Champ’ this St. Patty’s Day Recipe

Inge Gillian Harris

This side dish is sort of the unique Irish twist on mashed potatoes. Though most versions of this recipe seem to call for cream, we toned it down by adding yogurt instead, and cutting down the amount of butter used. Light and creamy, with chopped green onions, and our further addition of fresh cilantro, our version of champ is a great twist on a simple dish. Read More »

Beef & Broccoli {Take-Out-At-Home}

IMG_9063

I need a wok. Seriously. With the amount of Asian food that I make it amazes me that I do not own one. Someday.

My dad however has one, so we put it to use one night and made some gluten-free beef and broccoli. My dad is awesome for many reasons, but I love how good he is about gluten-free awareness and Read More »

Wings are quintessential half-time finger food. No wonder! Wings are economical, easy to make appetizers that everyone enjoys. Find a recipe in this collection of our best wing recipes from About.com Food and Drink Guides.

Betty Crocker Gluten Free Cake Mix and Easy Cupcake Decorating

Cake Darla Gluten Free Works

If you didn’t already know, Betty Crocker does gluten-free cakecookie, and brownie mixes now. Actually, these have been around for a while, but I’m honestly not a fan of Betty Crocker. Or cake mixes in general for that matter. But if I have to use a cake mix, I’m more than likely not going to eat it, so I usually go for Duncan Hines if it’s on sale or Pillsbury, whichever is cheaper.

A few days ago I realized that February is half over and I hadn’t posted anything since January, so I decided to try out the box of Betty Crocker Gluten Free Devil’s Food cake mix that had been sitting in my pantry for many weeks. I bought it on sale to use for something, I forget what, that I obviously never used it for. I was also in the mood for something chocolate. And easy. Cupcakes made from a mix are
