While shopping for munchies, I noticed the Pizza Al Pollo Asado at Trader Joe’s. This Mexican-inspired pizza is made on a corn masa crust and is layered with grilled chicken, refried beans, jack cheese and salsa. I honestly had not noticed it before and according to the packaging, it is made with no gluten ingredients, so I gave it a shot.dffc5c97f4f107e8cd2c62d15f7c265b

March 14th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

Whether you make your own gluten-free flour mix or buy one like Auntie’s Flour Blend, it’s easy to make really tasty muffins. You just need a fool-proof recipe!

I’ve been making these muffins for about 5 years. When my daughter was first diagnosed with a gluten and dairy sensitivity, I put my best foot forward and figured out the perfect combination of ingredients to create a moist and flavorful end product. There are a few rules, though, that are important to follow. Here are my suggestions:blueberry_muffins

When my husband and I lived in California, there was a place that we really loved to dine at named Dharma’s.

Yes, it lived up to the name…

Cooky owner, rockstar looking workers, New Age decor…

Yet it was a wonderful place to eat out at. In fact, if you were in my town, it was an absolute must – everyone knew that.

This restaurant, beautifully was full of all sorts of healthy, organic, vegan, and gluten free clean eats. It was known for its colossal sized breakfast, lunch, and dinner options to try that crossed all cultural bounds – Indian cuisine, Asian, Mexican, Italian, American – you name it.

That was indeed our default go-to restaurant.Screen shot 2013-02-10 at 4.09.02 PM

I love to enjoy this almond milk with cereal, in smoothies, and in hot rooibos tea. I try to avoid drinking it by the glass, because it will usually be gone in a day if I do that.

Orange Raspberry Blueberry Muffins Recipe

March 4th, 2013 by Bella McKenzie

I once was in a shopping mall in California (Sears, I believe), and read a screen t-shirt that was soooo hilarious to me that I took a picture of it. It said (and I quote), “Muffins are just ugly cupcakes”. It had a picture of this beautifully conceited cupcake staring down its low-esteemed muffin companion.

I know – pretty mean – but I had to laugh!

Now of course, I view it as “Cupcakes are just pretty muffins with hats on”, but that is neither here nor there.DSC_0239-1

What are your “Keys to the Kitchen”?

February 25th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

I’m lucky. I got to ask Aida this question up close and personal. If you don’t know her name, you should. Aida Mollenkamp is California-based food expert, TV host, writer, and culinary curator. She studied at the Cornell Hotel School (like me!) and Le Cordon Bleu Paris before joining CHOW.com where she worked behind the scenes as Food Editor. Eventually, she moved to television where she hosted her Food Network show Ask Aida (you get the pun now) and later the Cooking Channel show, foodCrafters.
