Jaw Dropping Lasagna Stuffed Meatloaf

January 5th, 2012 by Leanne Vogel


Healthful Pursuit - Leanne Vogel

On with the eats…

I love roasted vegetable lasagna, Kevin loves meatloaf. But I only had time to make one of them this past weekend.

Then I thought to myself, self: why decide between the two?

Ohhh yes, now we’ll never have to choose again. (more…)

Gluten-free Buttermilk Biscuit Peach Cobbler Recipe

Peaches – Cut into half inch slices

One of my passions in life is baking, but once I learned I had to go gluten-free, I felt I had lost this ability.  Not only was I horribly mistaken, but gluten-free baking can actually taste better than baking with wheat flour, yes, even better!

My favorite magazine for the last 15 years has been Food & Wine. Every month when I receive it in the mail, I cannot wait to open it to the index to see what recipes await.  The dessert section is the first category I explore, and try.  I was so disappointed when I thought I would no longer be able to create the wonderful baked goods published in this bible of mine.  Then I saw this recipe, by New York’s Bobby Flay, and decided I have to give it a try.

Gluten Free Blackened Shrimp Nachos

gluten free blackened shrimp nachosLast 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…)

Gluten-free Beef Stew Recipe

December 29th, 2011 by Amy Fothergill

gluten free beef stew recipeWhen 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…)

Gluten Free Flourless Brownie Recipe

Cake Darla Gluten Free Works

I may have mentioned how much I love the Whole Foods Recipes app a time or two dozen on here. It’s very user friendly and has a great bank of recipes. I particularly like the Flourless Brownies because they’re made with a secret ingredient: black beans. That’s right, you use a can of unsalted black beans (that have been well rinsed and drained) instead of flour. Every once in a while I get experimental and try the beans-for-flour sub in other recipes, but lately I’ve been playing around with this one trying to make it… better. (more…)

Gluten-Free Gingerbread Men Recipe

This recipe for Gluten-Free Gingerbread Men is adapted from a recipe by Jacqueline Mallorca, “Rice Flour Gingerbread Cows”, featured in her fabulous cookbook, “The Wheat-Free Cook”.

This version is corn free as well as gluten-free and is extra-extra gingery- so cut back on the ginger if you like.

The gingerbread men are decorated with small amounts of Royal Icing and Chocolate Buttercream Frosting but use raisins and nuts for a charming au natural touch. (more…)

Getting Festive – Gluten Free Canapes

December 20th, 2011 by Annie

Free From Polenta CanapesIn my pre-coeliac days, canapés were a doddle. Even on a budget. The day before a party I would buy the cheapest bread from the supermarket, cut out as many circles of bread as I could get out of each slice, dip them in olive oil and press them into pattie tins or mini muffin tins and bake.   I would end up with hundreds of little crisp toasts that kept overnight in a sealed box ready to be topped with an array of fresh toppings throughout the evening.

These days, that isn’t an option!  Gluten free bread is too expensive to buy, too small to get more than 2 circles out of (with a lot of wastage), and frequently too crumbly to use.  Home made is better – but that is an awful lot of bread to make, slice and cut.  Just not practical – especially when you have no fridge or kitchen space – or time – for advanced prep because you are running a supperclub!

So this week I was left wondering what I could use as canapé bases for our Christmas Party that would be a) gluten free b) economical c) effective and these are my top three suggestions:

Corn-syrup and Cane-sugar-Free Caramel Popcorn Recipe

gluten free sugar free corn syrup free caramel corn

What’s the problem with how traditional caramel corn is made? The primary ingredients are usually corn syrup and refined white sugar (not at all beneficial to our health or mood).  Also, you often have to fight to keep the caramel corn on the baking sheets as you stir it during baking.  All these problems have been solved with this new recipe.  Natural sweeteners replace the corn syrup and white sugar and the mixture is baked in a casserole dish.  Easy and yummy! I’m also always amazed by how large a batch is made with such a small amount of ingredients.

Pop ½ cup of popcorn (produces 2-3 quarts of popcorn)

3 Tbsp. coconut oil/butter
1/3 cup honey and/or maple syrup (more…)

Gluten Free Christmas Fruit Cake Recipe

Fruit Cake seems to be one of those things that you either love, or you hate. Personally I also find them really hard to bake and not have them dry out, so this year was a double challenge to make the perfect gluten free fruit cake without it drying out. Like most recipes it’s a personal taste on what you’d like to add, obviously if you have a nut allergy you can exclude those. If you like your cake frosted with frosting you can also do that too.

Enjoy!
