Gluten free waffles aren't hard to make; you really just need to substitute regular flour with a good gluten free flour blend.

To make some extra special waffles, try this recipe to serve around the holidays. The combination of nutmeg and vanilla makes for some wonderful smells in the house.

Try topping this with some fresh whipped cream, sliced bananas and maple syrup. Yum!

It is the right of every person to be able to enjoy cookies at holiday-time, no matter the holiday. Even Celiacs and people following a gluten free diet should be able to have yummy treats to celebrate the holidays. Jules Shepard, from Jules Gluten Free Flour Mix, has once again come up with a GF recipe that really, truly is just as good (if not better) than the “regular” (with gluten) recipe. Bake up a batch and offer them to your favorite little kid. I assure you, they will be a hit. (But make sure to save some for yourself!)

I love cooking with different wines, juices and making up different sauces. It can be quick and easy as long as you know the basic steps. Recently, I received a sampling of the POM Wonderful pomegranate juice and immediately thought it would pair well with pork.

Pork is a meat that can be made quickly and goes well with a variety of seasonings and sauces.

pork_pomI have always been a big fan of POM Wonderful juices so I was thrilled to see what I could come up with in the kitchen that would be gluten-free. POM Wonderful juice is a great source of potassium and iron. The juice also has a slight tart taste.

What you will need for the pork chops: (more…)

Gluten free side dishes

funyunsWhat’s Thanksgiving without side-dishes? Just plain ol’ turnkey dinner, right? Fortunately, lots of side dishes are naturally gluten free, like mashed potatoes and most sweet potato recipes, and either canned or fresh cranberry sauce. Sadly, it’s our old favorites that are gluten-FULL. Read on for some GF tweaks to these classic recipes.

Green Bean Casserole

Don’t panic! You can still have your Green Bean Casserole, just substitute the cream of mushroom soup for this recipe from The Gluten Free Cooking School, or try Progresso’s Cream of Mushroom soup. Don’t use the usual French fried onions on top (they have gluten), but try Funyuns Onion Flavored Rings by Frito Lay. Yes, Funyuns, that very same snack you probably skip over in the chip aisle is gluten free and makes a great, crunchy topping. (more…)
