Rudi's Gluten-free BakeryBeing that I am a creature of habit, I am 100% serious when I say that I eat a slice of Rudi’s multi-grain bread every day.

My routine: Wake up. Make omelette. Toast Rudi’s. Enjoy.

So, when I started seeing promotions for Rudi’s new ‘soft & fluffy’ recipe, I was very intrigued and excited for my daily routine to get THAT much better.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed Rudi’s old formula, and loved nothing more than (more…)

Gluten-Free Thai Chicken Pot Stickers Recipe

January 16th, 2013 by Teri Gruss, MS

gluten free pot stickers recipe

If you have ever enjoyed the experience of eating "pot stickers" before going gluten-free, you know how delicious and fun these savory Asian pan-fried dumplings are. They're fun to make too!

Traditionally pot sticker wrappers - similar to wonton wrappers, are made with wheat flour. While I've thought about attempting to make a gluten-free wonton for some time, it wasn't until I bought Laura B. Russell's cookbook, The Gluten-Free Asian Kitchen that I actually went for it.

Our gluten-free pot stickers will stick to the pan, just like wheat-made pot stickers, so read the instructions carefully and then have fun making this recipe. (more…)

Yes, you did just read that title correctly.

Kimye’s baby and the gluten-free diet have a few things in common. What are they you may ask? Well, here ya go:

It takes about 9 months to grow on you

Just like Kimye’s baby, the gluten-free diet isn’t second nature right when it’s sprung on you. At first you’re completely overwhelmed, thinking of how different life will be now, but you gradually get used to the idea of the whole thing. You get into a routine and oftentimes change your habits.

I’m sure motherhood is the same way (although I don’t want to find out for another 7-10 years). (more…)

gluten free taxes

Are YOU eligible for Tax deductions for gluten-free purchases??

It’s no secret that gluten-free packaged food is oftentimes more expensive than its gluten-containing counterparts, but did you know you might be eligible for a tax deduction to help make up the difference?

If you have never filed for a tax deduction for your gluten-free food purchases, there are some important things you should know before you do: (more…)

If there was a ‘Magic’ Gluten-Free Pill

January 12th, 2013 by Laura Hanley

Gluten-eaters often ask me, “Don’t you wish there was some ‘magic’ pill?”

This question arises when I have limited choices on a menu, or have to pass the basket of bread without indulging. My response usually includes a “Not really”, with some type of short explanation on why my life doesn’t suck because I’m gluten-free.

If there was a magic pill that enabled you to eat gluten, would you use it?

I can honestly say that I don’t feel like I’m missing out. I am happy with my diet. Just because I can’t choose a roll from the gluten-filled bread basket, doesn’t mean my life has crumbled into ruins.

So if there was a pill, would I take it? If I had the ability to indulge in gluten-filled food with the comfort of knowing the so-called ‘magic’ pill would alleviate my symptoms as well as prevent the damage to my intestines, would I be poppin’ it back on the regular? (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…)

Gluten-Free Quinoa & Pumpkin Seed Granola Recipe

January 10th, 2013 by Chrissy and Lauren

I have dubbed this my no-oat granola. I missed that detail when I first started adapting this recipe and was sure Better Homes and Gardens had forgotten to list the oats in the ingredient list. Alas, it was intentional and I’m loving it! This granola with a little homemade almond milk is my new go-to breakfast, snack, and occasional dinner.

Gluten-free Dairy-free Belgium Waffles Recipe

January 9th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

I don't know about you but when I smell Belgium waffles at those kiosks, I really wish I could eat gluten. Last year I vowed to find a replacement and I must say, I nailed it. I have made it two ways; with the caramelized sugar and without. Both are still delicious and my children are very appreciative of the effort I have made (read: this is not a quick recipe but worth the wait).

This New Year's day, I thought it would be fun to make them as a treat. The crowd (both gluten-free and not) agreed it was a winner. Read through the (more…)
