Easy G-Free Meals

April 11th, 2013 by Cheryl Harris, MPH, RD, LD

I love Springtime. More sunshine, flowers coming up, and I just want to be outdoors…and not in my kitchen. I'm still not used to the longer days, so by the time it starts getting dark and I start thinking about dinner, I'm often scrambling to get food on the table. So it's a great time to refocus on quick and easy. I love good food, but I’m also big on time savers. For me, that means:

Italian Polenta Pizza (For Two)

April 5th, 2013 by Bella McKenzie

I really could not wait to share with you this fun dish that I made. Polenta pizza - something adults, teens, and children love. And it's healthy! Being gluten free and vegetarian sometimes can be a little bit of a task in the kitchen, nevertheless when you have in-season, fresh vegetables and garden herbs and spices, coupled with a few other ingredients in the kitchen, there is no telling what you can come up with.Screen shot 2013-02-12 at 10.02.05 PM (more…)

Quinoa Pizza Bites Recipe

April 4th, 2013 by Laura Hanley

I must preface this recipe with the fact that up until this point, I did not think I liked quinoa. The main reason for my dislike of this seed was that I had a poorly prepared dish with it last year and thought that no matter what, the little gluten-free gems could never taste good. Welp folks, I was wrong. This easy quinoa recipe can be used as an alternative to gluten-free pizza dough and will rock your taste-bud’s world.BitesServing

April 2nd, 2013 by Kimberly Bouldin

Since the temperatures are finally inching their way up, it is time to start thinking about picnic season.  Everyone loves a picnic, right?  I remember going on picnics on Sundays after church when I was little and we lived in Texas. I am not sure if it was one picnic or many to that specific park, but I remember my mom packing fried chicken.

Adding a Gluten-Free Product to My Arsenal

March 29th, 2013 by Laura Hanley

I have been gluten-free for almost four years, so I think it’s safe to say that I know my way around the gluten-free aisle at the grocery store. I also feel like I have a pretty good handle on what brands are worth buying, which products are best for certain recipes, and what my taste-buds like in general. But, I recently found that even I can benefit from the discovery aspect that the Taste Guru box-of-the-month provides.mezzetta-300x300 (more…)
