Fourth of July is just around the corner and red, white and blue desserts will be in all the stores.  However, if you are on a gluten free diet, you will most likely need to make your own gluten free Fourth of July dessert.

May 13th, 2010 by Kaitlin Fleming

This is one of the best desserts I’ve ever made and its incredibly easy and impossible to mess up and of course, gluten free.

I have been trying things out of Alicia Silverstone’s book, The Kind Diet: A simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet. All of the recipes are vegan, but they also use awesome alternatives to using refined sugar all while still enjoying delicious treats. (more…)

Hummus: An Easy Healthy Homemade Gluten Free Snack

April 15th, 2010 by Kaitlin Fleming

Hummus is full of nutrients, tastes delicious and it is naturally gluten free. Its a great option for dinner parties or snacks, and best of all its easy to make at home with a food processor.

You can serve it with veggie slices as well as pita slices to appeal to everyone's dietary needs.

The veggies I chose to serve it with were jicama, bell peppers and celery. Try to buy local veggies at any of the San Francisco Farmers Markets. Buying local produce is the easiest and cheapest way to get the freshest veggies.

Recipe for Gluten Free Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

March 15th, 2010 by Marissa Carter

 

It appears to be cookie season! There are cookie sales going on for Girl Scouts, Kansas City area schools, and 4-H clubs. Looking at all of those tasty offerings is enough to bring a tear to any gluten free eye because they are off limits. Well, wipe that tear away! Here is a solution to the I-can’t-order-these-cookies-because-they’re-full-of-gluten blues.

The recipe for these peanut butter sandwich cookies comes to us from Florida, from Elizabeth Signer (A.K.A The Fat Boxer) to be exact. The recipe comes with many assurances that these cookies are so much better than the ones you can buy that you won’t be missing anything. (more…)

The following recipes below will surely have you feeling the luck of the Irish. And if you are feeling extra festive, go ahead and add some green food coloring to your favorite gluten-free beer (I recommend Bard's) of choice! (more…)

Recipe by Thomas Haas and reviewed by both the LA Times and The Vancouver Sun as “the best cookies”. They are gluten free and packed with chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Invented by Haas who is a pastry chef and describes these as baked truffles. The cookies have a very powerful chocolate taste and a smooth, soft texture. (more…)

This is a recipe that I love to make, especially when it's a little chilly outside. This recipe as written serves 4, but it can be doubled to serve 8. It has hominy in it, which are delicious starchy balls of corn grits. Somewhere between a soup and a stew, this recipe is fast and easy and gluten free, and the smell of the chili powders and cumin is absolutely fantastic!! (more…)

Gluten Free Recipe: Meat Free Monday Tacos

March 1st, 2010 by Kaitlin Fleming

Its meat free Monday today and I’m making tacos tonight for dinner. I’ve been experimenting with tofu a lot lately, sometimes succeeding and other times not so much.

I’ve found that the crucial detail to remember is that it important to cook the tofu in very flavorful sauces and seasonings. Tofu absorbs whatever flavor you cook it in.

Tacos are one of my favorites foods that can be made gluten free and vegetarian very easily. I use corn tortillas over the gluten free ones you can find because I find they taste better and always make sure your sauces are gluten free. (more…)

Gluten-free Tiramisu Recipe with Shabtai Lady Fingers

February 22nd, 2010 by Anne Steib

Tiramisu has always been one of my favorite indulgences since my first trip to Italy, in the late 80s, and trying the real thing. The key is having the right cream, because without that, it just tastes like something mass produced you would expect to find in a grocery store.

Of course the lady fingers are a main ingredient as well, and being gluten-free, that become a new challenge. Luckily, I had a box of Shabtai Lady Fingers on hand, so I was good to go! I decided to forgo the usual raw egg in the cream, because that just doesn't sound appetizing the more I learn about food. The whipped heavy cream takes the place of the raw eggs in this recipe. I never said it was healthy! (more…)
