Gluten-Free Mini Corn Dogs Recipe

April 24th, 2012 by Jenny Manseau

Bryan loves corn dogs and for many years I would even take a bite of one of them.  It was a texture thing to me…I always thought that the corn bread batter would be soggy and mushy and I wanted nothing to do with them.  When Bryan came to visit me in California we picked up a box for him (they weren’t gluten-free), but when he left I still had half a box…they ended up in the trash. I told him at some point I will give them a try.

A few months ago I as fortunate enough to sample some of the Applegate Farms new corn dogs - they were delicious!! To my surprise the coating was crunch and not soggy at all. Ever since Bryan has been asking for me to make some…he would really love them to be full of gluten but he’s a good sport and eats what I make.  Maybe I’ll surprise him and make some regular ones for him anyway.

Yesterday I decided to make some mini corn dogs just to see how they would (more…)

OAKLAND, Calif., April 18, 2012 -- Add Hidden Valley Salad Dressings to the growing list of foods to clearly call out that they are gluten free.

The makers of Hidden Valley Salad Dressings have added a "Gluten Free" logo to bottles and dry packets of its signature Original Ranch® dressing as well as much of its Farmhouse Originals product line. Packages with the new logo should appear on store shelves this summer.

The packaging change is designed to help (more…)

Oh have I got a treat for you today!

I’ve held on to this recipe for months and am wondering why the heck I waited this long to make it. I guess there just isn’t enough time in the day to try each and every single recipe I have pinnedtweeted and Facebooked.

But there will always be enough time for brownies, always. Even if they are months in the (more…)

Spring Forward with Pistachio Cheesecake Recipe

Did you remember to Spring forward Sunday? I can’t believe it is this time already!  I am so excited about it being light later, that I really don’t care about the hour of lost sleep.  Make sure to ask me how I feel about that in a couple of weeks when my schedule is all screwed up, okay?

With Spring, comes St. Patrick’s Day and Easter. I don’t quite celebrate St. Patrick’s Day the way I used to, and my body thanks me for that.  This St. Patrick’s Day, perhaps I’ll indulge in some green eggs & ham or Pistachio Cheesecake (just happens to be green), instead of green beer.

Banana ‘Scream with a Kick Recipe

Life has been busy—issues with construction, permits, fire hazards and the like.  And our oven broke.  So lately it’s been all about the quick and easy.

And what’s quicker and easier than Banana ‘Scream?  It takes about 2 minutes from start to finish, simple, and totally customizable to pretty much any diet (except a banana allergy).  We tend to have browning bananas go to freezer heaven, and the lucky ones are found and made into dessert before they become a mass of ice crystals.

1 banana, frozen, chopped into 5-6 chunks 1 TBSP liquor (chocolate liquor, Frangelico, whatever) (more…)

Gluten Free Flourless Brownie Recipe

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…)

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 Shortbread Cookies

gluten free shortbread cookies

It's that time of year again... when you allow yourself to bake with real butter... and lots of it! At first I was planning to make this recipe with margarine (since that's what I had), but my mom adamantly informed me that shortbread is made with REAL BUTTER, and anything less is sacrilege. It's Christmas after all, right? But what if I would rather not gain ten pounds over the holidays? Apparently buttlerless shortbread cookies are not an option. And I'm not sure that eating less of them is an option either... these things seem to call your name from the freezer. (more…)
