With football season in full swing, it’s time to whip out the finger foods. Luckily, recipe creation is a bit easier with new gluten-free ingredients popping up. McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mix recently released new spice packets that not only make everyday life easier when it comes to dinner prep, but party food, too!

I have come up with three fun recipes with a bit more class than what you usually see in the lineup.

Tropical Chia Seed Pudding Recipe {Mango, Banana, Coconut}

August 19th, 2014 by Chrissy and Lauren

Let’s be real for a minute. I bet that when you hear “pudding” you really hear “Snack Pack.”

It’s ok, me too. No shame in that. As kids, we didn’t know any difference.

If you were lucky enough, those glorious little snackies appeared in our lunch bags, day after day, and were the most coveted item in the cafeteria, well, besides Gushers.

Snack Packs reminds me of the legendary film, Billy Madison, and this clip. Great movie.

Now that we aren’t 6 any more are grown-ups (I use that word loosely), go throw away that Snack Pack you were about to peel open, and dig your spoon into a jar of this heavenly stuff. (more…)

gluten free nutella recipe

gluten free nutella recipe

Everyone has different reasons for making food (like Nutella) at home which they can buy off of the shelf; it might be economic or for health reasons. Since the first time I tried Nutella, I never had the desire to make it. But, when the day came that my darling dairy-free daughter could no longer partake because of the milk in it, I considered it.

I had seen a recipe for the hazelnut spread in my high-powered blender but assumed it was hard. I decided one day to take a look and was very happy to find that 1. it was not that hard (1 hour start to finish with time in between when you don't have to do anything), 2. I had most of the ingredients in my cabinet with the exception of the hazelnuts (aka filberts), and 3. the recipe did not have any dairy in it. Ok, time to shift the paradigm again. (more…)

Gluten-Free Quinoa & Pumpkin Seed Granola Recipe

January 10th, 2013 by Chrissy and Lauren

I have dubbed this my no-oat granola. I missed that detail when I first started adapting this recipe and was sure Better Homes and Gardens had forgotten to list the oats in the ingredient list. Alas, it was intentional and I’m loving it! This granola with a little homemade almond milk is my new go-to breakfast, snack, and occasional dinner.

Gluten Free Cranberry and Hazlenut Biscotti Recipe

November 30th, 2012 by Lois Parker

gluten free cranberry hazlenut biscottiThese hazlenut biscotti have a warm, complex flavour with a lighter texture than my usual biscotti.  They have a hint of cinnamon but if you want a spicier flavour just add more spice, perhaps with mixed spice or ginger as well as the cinnamon.  If you like an iced biscotti, making a glace icing with icing sugar and ginger wine would work well.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Roasted Almonds Recipe

October 23rd, 2012 by Chrissy and Lauren

I have a new addiction. It happens to be to these Pumpkin Pie Roasted Almonds.

I…I….I…..just don’t know what to say. They are perfectly crunchy, pleasantly pumpkin-spiced, and they have a great balance between salty and sweet.

These almonds are subtle. They don’t walk into a room and yell obnoxious things, but rather they are comforting and pleasant to be around. This is why I have been keeping a little jar of them with me at all times. (more…)
