Gluten-Free Mini Corn Dogs Recipe

April 24th, 2012 by Jenny Manseau

Jenny Manseau Gluten Free Works

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 (more…)

New Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Bread Recipe

Here’s our latest and favorite gluten-free (and dairy-free) bread recipe. This gluten-free bread has a terrific springiness and is neither too dry or too wet. And, it has a wonderful yeasty flavor and calls for simple ingredients that are easy to find.

When followed exactly this recipe is consistently dependable. The batter rises quickly and as the loaf bakes it doesn’t bubble over the sides of the pan. As it cools it doesn’t cave in.

It’s highly recommended that you use a good kitchen scale to weigh ingredients, don’t substitute with other gluten-free ingredients and use an instant read digital thermometer to know when your bread is done. And if you have a good stand mixer that helps too.

You will see two out-of-the-ordinary recommendations in our new gluten-free bread recipe. The directions call for using both (more…)

Gluten-free Homemade Ranch Dip or Dressing Recipe

April 18th, 2012 by Amy Fothergill

I was sitting at the table, reviewing one of my recipes which had not been tested yet for my cookbook. Ranch dressing is one of those items you would assume would be gluten-free until you look at the label. Then you also might see all of the other ingredients that aren’t so appealing.

My kids are big fans of ranch dressing so I thought, why not try it right now?  I normally don’t make everything from scratch but I was curious to see if it was worth it to make my own.

Assuming you have the ingredients in your kitchen (which I usually do), this can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes. It’s always better if it sets but if you can’t wait, don’t worry, it’s still great.

When I made it, I called the kids over for a taste test. They grabbed some carrots from the fridge and dug in. My son then announced (more…)

Oh have I got a treat for you today!

I’ve held on to this recipe for months and am wondering why the heck I waited this long to make it. I guess there just isn’t enough time in the day to try each and every single recipe I have pinnedtweeted and Facebooked.

But there will always be enough time for brownies, always. Even if they are months in the (more…)

Miley leaving her gym after a workout.

Miley Cyrus, the ultra popular nineteen year old singer and actress is the latest celebrity to fall victim to the media for being too healthy and too in-shape. And it’s all because she is gluten-free and casein-free.  Actually, the real reason is because many media “reporters” are vicious and misinformed. Their lack of concern for the truth and focus on sensationalism damages people like Cyrus, the gluten-free community and our society as a whole.

Here’s what went down…

Photos were taken of Miley leaving a pilates studio and looking SUPER fit and healthy. The media began by raving about Miley’s figure – how in-shape, fit and toned she looks. It was all “Yay Miley! We love Miley!” This was a win-win for everyone. Miley is famous, so the story sold. People got to see someone they recognize who was succeeding and looking (more…)

Continuing with part three of my favorite gluten-free products from Expo West, here are my picks for: cheese, granola and snacks.  There were many contenders in these categories, so I limited my list to the top contenders.  All of these products should start arriving on store shelves over the next couple of months.

Cheese

  • Daiya Foods – launched their wedges in three flavors: jack, cheddar, and jalapeno garlic havarti.  If you are looking for a plant-based ‘cheese’ that is free of dairy and soy then you have come to the right place.  Daiya already makes shredded cheese that is great to bake with, but isn’t meant for eating out of the package.  These wedge cheeses can be sliced and eaten right out of the package. They are much softer than I had anticipated, so I could easily press it down with my finger.  The cheese is creamy and would be great to spread on crackers, or to use as spread on sandwiches.  I really liked the spicy kick of the Havarti, the Cheddar had great flavor, and the Jack was just OK.
