Gluten-free Dairy-free Blueberry Muffin Recipe

March 14th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill


Whether you make your own gluten-free flour mix or buy one like Auntie’s Flour Blend, it’s easy to make really tasty muffins. You just need a fool-proof recipe!

I’ve been making these muffins for about 5 years. When my daughter was first diagnosed with a gluten and dairy sensitivity, I put my best foot forward and figured out the perfect combination of ingredients to create a moist and flavorful end product. There are a few rules, though, that are important to follow. Here are my suggestions:blueberry_muffins

It turns out that more than Idahoans love potatoes!

I did some research, and it appears that potatoes are America's favorite vegetable. I never really knew that concretely, but from a personal standpoint, I can understand why!baked home fries mexicali (more…)

Orange Raspberry Blueberry Muffins Recipe

March 4th, 2013 by Bella McKenzie

I once was in a shopping mall in California (Sears, I believe), and read a screen t-shirt that was soooo hilarious to me that I took a picture of it. It said (and I quote), "Muffins are just ugly cupcakes". It had a picture of this beautifully conceited cupcake staring down its low-esteemed muffin companion.

I know - pretty mean - but I had to laugh!

Now of course, I view it as "Cupcakes are just pretty muffins with hats on", but that is neither here nor there.DSC_0239-1

Kale and Beef in Chestnut Sauce

February 20th, 2013 by Cheryl Harris, MPH, RD, LD

Wanna hear something funny? When I first started my blog, I intended it to be an even mix of meals, breads, soups, desserts, etc. that mirrored how we eat. When I re-did my recipe index, I realized that notion bit the dust a few years back, and surprise, surprise, it seems like my blog is brought to you by the letter C and the word chocolate. Not that I don’t love chocolate, but I’d kinda like to balance things a little more.  Just cause.

Then again, as I look at my very un-photogenic, super-yumtastic stew, maybe part of my decision is because dessert photographs better? (more…)

I have a short New Year's Resolution list. It's much the same list that I wrote down last year and the year before. It involves cooking and eating more nutritious foods.

Homemade soups are the most nourishing food I can think of. Enough protein, enough fats of the right sort, lots of vegetables in healthy stocks and broths, rich in nutrients. That's what soups and stews are made of.

Therefore, my number one New Year's resolution is to make one big pot of homemade soup or stew each and every week of the new year. Last year I lost focus and fell short of my weekly soup/stew goal, but this first week of the new year, I'm at 100%, starting with a simple gluten-free version of "Beef Burgundy."

On Christmas Day my son served an amazing Beef Bourguignon for the family. The flavors were rich and earthy. As I listened to him describe his list of ingredients and method of preparation I decided to start the year with an abbreviated, easier version of the classic French Beef Bourguignon recipe, beef burgundy. Here is my first gluten-free stew of 2013.

Gluten-Free Beef Burgundy Recipe

According to our About.com Guide to French Food beef burgundy, or boeuf Bourguignon, is the ultimate slow-cooked comfort food. It is!

The earthy flavors in this simple dish transform run-of-the-mill beef stew into something truly special to be enjoyed with a warm slice of gluten-free bread and a glass of wine. (more…)

I know you might think I'm clever, but really, I'm not. Full credit goes to Lauryn Cohen, aka Bella Baker, who came up with this cute concept. Lauren is the queen of sweet and is known for her uniquely creative treats and crafts. She recently launched a holiday baking guide (entitled Sweet Gifts Holiday Baking and Crafting Guide- available nationwide) filled with innovative and delicious recipes for the holidays.

Lauryn was nice enough to share one of her creations with The Family Chef. In this recipe, she calls for a red velvet cupcake (you will find a gluten-free, no-dye recipe in my upcoming cookbook). You can always use a basic vanilla (gluten-free).

Here is her technique for making super cute holiday cupcakes for your friends or family. (more…)

Jules Gluten-Free: Sugar Cut-Out Cookies Recipe

December 12th, 2012 by Candice Rose Clifford

You don't have to build your cookies in a tree shape - but, boy it looks cute and festive!

Let’s be honest, If there was no Jules Gluten Free Flour there would be no family recipes recreated, no homemade cookies or cakes, and no way I could enjoy something special from time to time. I may be a exaggerating a bit here, but Jules’ flour is a product I {and my mom} are so thankful for. It was the product that gave me the courage to get back to baking after becoming discouraged, and has now allowed me to take risks in the kitchen. 

Like many of my virtual friends I have never met Jules, but she is one of the “gluten-free celebrities” I want to meet one day. Not only am I thankful for her flour, but I am also so thankful for all the support she has given me over the last two years of blogging, often (more…)

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.
