Gluten-Free Mini Caprese Frittatas Recipe

September 18th, 2012 by Chrissy and Lauren

 

As we’ve discussed, everything is better in mini form.

Except portions of gourmet mac n cheese. Always take the big dish of that stuff. It’s not everyday that you will come across a heaping portion of creamy, cheesy, black truffle-y, mac n cheese.

gluten free paris monopOur recent trip to Paris, France was filled with lots of sightseeing, shopping and taking in the local cuisine. Traveling gluten free in Europe does require some research, so I wanted to share my gluten-free shopping experience.

It is important to know how to say gluten free in the appropriate language, so in French you ask for products that are ‘sans gluten’. I found it difficult to come by people who spoke English when we were in Paris, so make sure (more…)

Turnip and Potato Hash Browns

Turnips–definitely not a vegetable I grew up munching on. They are never featured on veggie platters, and definitely do not have shelf space at my local Trader Joe’s. I would be so curious to know if anybody ate turnips, on the regular!?

When Jacque brought me a bag full of fresh dill from her garden, she also threw in some turnips…. (more…)

Review: Exotic Gluten Free Simmer Sauces from Saffron Road

September 10th, 2012 by Cinde Shields

I enjoy preparing from scratch home cooked meals for my family, but on especially busy weeknights I sometimes use a few prepared foods to help speed up the process.  Prepared foods typically contain less than healthy ingredients, so I opt for all natural products such as the new gluten free Simmer Sauces from Saffron Road.Saffron Road’s gluten free Simmer Sauces come in four flavors, each a unique taste of world cuisine.  My family had the pleasure of sampling the following simmer sauce flavors, which I am happy to report are also dairy free: (more…)

Big Lots Surprises With Lots of Gluten-Free Products

September 6th, 2012 by Trish Deitemeyer

bob's red mill gluten free brownie mixYou expect to find gluten-free food online and in health food stores and big grocery stores, but you never anticipate finding it in your local discount store. I was recently pleasantly surprised to find, among the curling irons and cat food, many GF products in Big Lots, the largest broadline closeout retailer in the U.S.

Big Lots has recently begun carrying several types of Bob’s Red Mill products, most of them gluten-free, and all of them much cheaper than they can be purchased on-line or in a grocery store. I bought Bob’s Gluten-Free Shortbread Cookie Mix and Pizza Crust Mix for 2.90 and a bag of Bob’s Cinnamon Raisin Bread Mix for 3.95. In my regular grocery store, these mixes run from 4.95 – 6.95. Big Lots also carries a few brands of GF pasta, all for under 2.00 per package. And you can always find (more…)
