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 Pecan Pie Recipe

November 27th, 2012 by Teri Gruss, MS

This gluten free recipe for pecan pie is incredibly sweet and delicious. Don't be intimidated about making homemade pie crust. A food processor makes the task fast and easy- just keep your butter or shortening chilled and use ice water.

The rich pecan filling is mixed in a blender, making this a fast and easy favorite.

Tip - An 8 or 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom makes a nice-looking crimped crust and makes cutting pies easy too. (more…)

We all know what it's like to be in a non-gluten-free kitchen: whether it's you or someone you know that is on a gluten-free diet, being in a kitchen that is not gluten free can be an uneasy experience. Maybe you share a kitchen with someone who does not eat gluten free. Maybe you're having non-gluten-free friends over or going to a party at a non-gluten-free house. Just in time for the holidays, here's a video from Marie Fang about staying gluten free in a shared kitchen.

Whether it's the coming holidays or daily life, this video can help you or someone you know avoid cross-contamination in a shared kitchen!

A G-Free Thanksgiving

November 12th, 2012 by Cheryl Harris, MPH, RD, LD

It takes a little planning ahead to guarantee a great Thanksgiving. In many ways, it’s easier if you’re hosting, because you know what you can and can’t have. Most people hate to impose on their hosts, but it’s easier on you AND your host to ask beforehand than sit through a four-hour meal and watch others eat. Remember, nothing is more important that staying safe!

Turkey: Though it’s always good to check, the good news is that all plain fresh turkey is naturally gluten free. However, self-basting turkeys usually contain gluten. Most gravy packets are a problem, too. As of 2011, ALL of the companies I called did have gluten-free turkeys, except Tofurky, which has gluten. Check out my gluten-free turkey list for 2011, which has manufacturer contact info.

If you’re not hosting Thanksgiving at your house, talk to your host as soon as you can. You’ll need to talk about:

* Broth used for basting * Seasonings * Stuffing in the (more…)

Gluten Free Gravy Recipe

November 8th, 2012 by Amy Fothergill

If you think making homemade gravy is harder than the SAT's, think again.

Instead of using a gluten-based roux (butter and flour), start using slurries.

A slurry is a combination of a starch and cold water (equal parts) which are mixed into a hot liquid like chicken or turkey broth.

The ratio that I use which seems to work well is: (more…)

Beware... Jelly Belly Deluxe Easter Mix candies are being recalled due to the fact they were made with undeclared wheat.  The candies are falsely labeled gluten free.  The recalled product was distributed nationwide. (more…)

This recipe for Gluten-Free Gingerbread Men is adapted from a recipe by Jacqueline Mallorca, "Rice Flour Gingerbread Cows", featured in her fabulous cookbook, "The Wheat-Free Cook".

This version is corn free as well as gluten-free and is extra-extra gingery- so cut back on the ginger if you like.

The gingerbread men are decorated with small amounts of Royal Icing and Chocolate Buttercream Frosting but use raisins and nuts for a charming au natural touch. (more…)
