Pica Pica’s gluten-free arepa (corn bread) recipe

February 8th, 2010 by Amy Fothergill


Pica Pica Maize Kitchen in Napa is a wonderful destination. The icing on the proverbial cake is that it’s all gluten-free. If you want to learn more about them, read the full article here.

Adriana López Vermut was kind enough to share her recipe for the arepa, a Venezuelan corn bread. Look for a recipe for the pepeada filling, chicken salad with creamy avocado, in a subsequent article. Gather your ingredients, invite your friends over and make a great meal! (more…)


When I was younger I used to love Skyline chili done as a 3-way, and would get it frozen from my local grocery store and serve it over spaghetti and top with cheese. It was quick and satisfying. Being a mostly non-meat eater these days, I still craved the flavor and texture without the animal. I searched online, experimented and combined different recipes I found in trying to duplicate the Skyline chili recipe with a vegetarian version.

Making Gluten Free Manicotti

February 3rd, 2010 by Trish Deitemeyer

The word is getting out that even though we can’t eat wheat, celiacs (and others who must follow a gluten free diet) still love to eat pasta. There are a few establishments in the Philadelphia area that offer gluten free pasta, such as Giorgio on Pine in Center City, Café Alessio in Doylestown, Café Monterosso in Yardley, City Kitchen Pizzeria in Southampton, and Maggiano’s Little Italy in Center City, King of Prussia and Cherry Hill, NJ. However, if you’re really missing home-made pasta, just like Nonna used to make, why not try to make it yourself? (more…)

Gluten-free Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe

January 5th, 2010 by Anne Steib

 

Post-holiday time can leave a hostess with many leftovers. This holiday I was left with an abundance of sweet potatoes after baking four good size ones for two sweet potato pies. I probably had enough to make two additional pies, but I wanted to try something different. And because of the nutritional value of sweet potatoes, I didn’t want it to go to waste. Of course when you combine a super food like sweet potatoes and the whole grain of buckwheat with copious amounts of butter and sugar, the nutritional value is sure to decrease, but at least we know there is some redeeming quality in the dish.

Often times, when baking gluten free items, a small substitution is needed. However, if you don’t bake a lot, some recipes can be a bit complex. It’s best to follow a good recipe and make sure to make it once before you decide to make it for a big party.

genoise_cakeChocolate genoise cake can be used to make any type of jelly roll cake but it’s especially popular around the holidays to make a yule log. Creating a gluten free version requires only a few changes. Always make sure the other ingredients are gluten free like the cocoa. For the best flavor, use a local cocoa powder like Ghirardelli. It gives the cake a great flavor. (more…)

Chocolate_Chunk_Cookies_lizschauThese chocolate chunk cookies are so simple to make and decidedly less involved than many gluten-free baking recipes. They bake up thin, crispy, and perfectly chewy. These cookies contain no flour or starches, which means they are lower in carbohydrates and, since they are made with cashew butter, are loaded with protein. And, should you choose to use dark chocolate, they’re also dairy-free. As always, be vigilant and check labels — especially when purchasing chocolate, as some contain wheat and gluten.
