Gluten-free Buttermilk Biscuit Peach Cobbler Recipe

Peaches – Cut into half inch slices

One of my passions in life is baking, but once I learned I had to go gluten-free, I felt I had lost this ability.  Not only was I horribly mistaken, but gluten-free baking can actually taste better than baking with wheat flour, yes, even better!

My favorite magazine for the last 15 years has been Food & Wine. Every month when I receive it in the mail, I cannot wait to open it to the index to see what recipes await.  The dessert section is the first category I explore, and try.  I was so disappointed when I thought I would no longer be able to create the wonderful baked goods published in this bible of mine.  Then I saw this recipe, by New York’s Bobby Flay, and decided I have to give it a try.

Gluten Free Blackened Shrimp Nachos

gluten free blackened shrimp nachosLast weekend my Aunts Sue and Patti invited us over for dinner and some delicious gluten-free, crust-free cheesecake for my birthday. While we were there hanging out in the kitchen chatting with my Aunt Bryan and I started flipping through the Kraft Foods magazine “Food&Family” and Bryan kept picking out recipes he wanted me to make.  We do this often.  I’ll get a new magazine or cookbook and I’ll flip through it then give it to him to pick out what he wants to try first. So in this one, he picked out a few but the one he wanted first (aka, the next day!!) was the Cheddar-Shrimp Nachos.

They looked delicious in the picture, but I changed a few things around (go figure) to make them suitable for the both of us to enjoy but also I wasn’t a fan of some of the ingredients and wanted (more…)

Gluten-free Beef Stew Recipe

December 29th, 2011 by Amy Fothergill

gluten free beef stew recipeWhen the weather turns cool, I think comfort foods. With a busy day ahead, I knew my crock pot would come in handy. Once again, it delivered, even with a power outage toward the end of its cycle!

Here’s a delicious recipe for beef stew which I have converted to gluten-free. To make it “with gluten”, use regular flour instead of the white rice and potato starch. The process and seasonings are the same.

We are very lucky to have quality beef right down the road, fromMarkegard Family Grass-Fed. The test is in the taste which truly delivered. It wasn’t too greasy, either, and was very tender. (more…)

Gluten Free Flourless Brownie Recipe

Cake Darla Gluten Free Works

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…)

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…)

Getting Festive – Gluten Free Canapes

December 20th, 2011 by Annie

Annie_gluten_free_works
Free From Polenta CanapesIn my pre-coeliac days, canapés were a doddle. Even on a budget. The day before a party I would buy the cheapest bread from the supermarket, cut out as many circles of bread as I could get out of each slice, dip them in olive oil and press them into pattie tins or mini muffin tins and bake.   I would end up with hundreds of little crisp toasts that kept overnight in a sealed box ready to be topped with an array of fresh toppings throughout the evening.

These days, that isn’t an option!  Gluten free bread is too expensive to buy, too small to get more than 2 circles out of (with a lot of wastage), and frequently too crumbly to use.  Home made is better – but that is an awful lot of bread to make, slice and cut.  Just not practical – especially when you have no fridge or kitchen space – or time – for advanced prep because you are running a supperclub!

So this week I was left wondering what I could use as canapé bases for our Christmas Party that would be a) gluten free b) economical c) effective and these are my top three suggestions:

Easy Crushed Gluten Free Candy Cane Cake Recipe

gluten free candy cane cakesCandy canes can make any cake or cupcake turn into a magical winter treat. All you need to do is take some gluten-free candy canes (click here to see my favorite brand) and crush them up.  Sprinkle them on top of your favorite frosted treat and you will end up with a beautiful creation that looks like it is from a bakery.

Some of my favorite ways to use the candy canes:

1.  Make a vanilla cake from your favorite mix.  Add 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract to the batter.  Bake and allow to cool.  Frost with frosting (I like the Betty Crocker canned frostings).  Sprinkle with crushed candy canes. (more…)

Corn-syrup and Cane-sugar-Free Caramel Popcorn Recipe

December 18th, 2011 by Kim Wilson

 

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…)
