I love bringing along homemade muffins with me on hotel vacations. They’re fantastic for snack or breakfast, can be filled with protein and healthy fats (which I always seem to lack when I travel), and even if they get squished during my trip, they still taste Read More »

Bryan loves corn dogs and for many years I would even take a bite of one of them. It was a texture thing to me…I always thought that the corn bread batter would be soggy and mushy and I wanted nothing to do with them. When Bryan came to visit me in California we picked up a box for him (they weren’t gluten-free), but when he left I still had half a box…they ended up in the trash. I told him at some point I will give them a try.
A few months ago I as fortunate enough to sample some of the Applegate Farms new corn dogs – they were delicious!! To my surprise the coating was crunch and not soggy at all. Ever since Bryan has been asking for me to make some…he would really love them to be full of gluten but he’s a good sport and eats what I make. Maybe I’ll surprise him and make some regular ones for him anyway.
Yesterday I decided to make some mini corn dogs just to see how they would Read More »

Do you remember the first time you drank Gatorade?
I do! I was at a track and field meet. After the race, my coach passed me a bottle of Gatorade and told me to drink it to avoid feeling sick.
The neon color should have been enough to raise a red flag, but I drank it anyway. 5 minutes later I felt like I’d been hit by a truck. Sugar overload! I could feel the Read More »

I have tended not to use coconut products as my primary cookie eater isn’t really a fan. However, in an aberrant moment I bought several bags of coconut flour in with my order of brown rice flour, so I need to start using it. I also had a jar of Read More »
If you think being on a gluten free diet means never eating some of your favorite foods, think again. There has been an explosion of gluten free products over the past few years so become familiar with the brands that work for you. Bionaturae has many options for pasta like elbows, spaghetti and penne rigate.
Here are important tips to cooking good gluten free pasta:
- Make sure there is plenty of water when boiling.
- Add salt to the boiling water.
- Start testing the pasta 1 minute before the recommended time. If it’s not done, test in 1 minute intervals.
- Don’t over mix or over cook gluten free pasta; it will fall apart.
The key to a satisfying macaroni and cheese is learning to make a good cheese sauce. By making a few adjustments from a traditional recipe, you’ll soon be in business. Read More »
I saw an advertisement on TV for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with this recipe. Whilst it sounded, let’s say interesting, I was intrigued and had to try it.
The first time I tried this recipe I bought some gluten free rice crumbs but I found them too crunchy with an almost sand type texture. The next time I cooked this recipe I therefore made my own breadcrumbs by blending a piece of frozen gluten free bread. It turned out really well, the chicken was very tender and it tasted awesome served with cornmeal mash (cornmeal mixed with milk and cheese) and stir fried vegetables.
If you read my blog back in January, you will remember that my roommate and I heavily relied on our crock pot. It was the lifesaver, to our busy days, and long nights. As the cold crisp air is slowly creeps into the northeast, I want more and more crock pot meals.
Considering that I don’t eat red meat I have had to get creative in finding recipes, as it seems as though there are always pork, and beef recipes for the crock pot. However, with the little extra time on my hands I don’t mind Read More »
