Subway’s Foray Into Gluten-free Makes It on CNN.com

January 20th, 2011 by Jennifer Harris


Source: CNN.com

As most of you have heard by now, Subway began testing out a gluten-free bun and brownie in Dallas-Fort Worth and Tyler/Longview, TX on January 10th. This development at Subway warranted an article on CNN Health where you can see photos of both the bun and the brownie.  

According to celiac.com, the gluten-free rolls and brownies made by (more…)


So yummy, and healthy too!

Despite the name, buckwheat is not wheat, it is actually  a pseudocereal, in the same category as amaranth and quinoa, and a great way for non-gluten eaters to get fiber and whole grain into our diet.

Buckwheat is commonly used as a staple in the cuisines of Japan (soba noodles), Korea, Northern Italy, Eastern Europe (kasha), and Western France (savory crepes)*.

This recipe is a great alternative to regular buttermilk pancakes and gives it a healthy spin and an earthy flavor. (more…)

Does your gluten-free section look like this??

Last December this Examiner put together a wish list for restaurants of gluten-free items we would love to see added to their menus.  Now it seems only appropriate as it is the beginning of 2011 to put together a wish list of gluten-free retail products we would like to see hit grocery store shelves.

My best advice for a new gluten-free company is to create something that is unique and stay away from (more…)

Best Gluten-Free Chicken Wing Recipes

January 3rd, 2011 by Teri Gruss, MS

Wings are quintessential half-time finger food. No wonder! Wings are economical, easy to make appetizers that everyone enjoys. Find a recipe in this collection of our best wing recipes from About.com Food and Drink Guides.

When a recipe calls for soy sauce, be sure to use a gluten-free product. Same goes for hot sauce. I use Frank’s Red Hot Original sauce in my wing recipes.

Gluten Free Soapbox: Say NO to “Meanies” in Forums

December 27th, 2010 by Marissa Carter

So many boxes, so little time… [taliesin/Morguefile

For this week’s gluten free soapbox we go back to the forums. Those online “support groups” that are supposed to be a place of sharing, healing and camaraderie. People log on to the gluten free forums to talk about their troubles and make friends who are struggling with the same issues they are. That is why I am so disturbed today.

Something I’ve noticed happening every so often (not constantly, but too much) is the sarcasm and derision thrown at (more…)

UConn’s Gluten-Free Food Program a National Model

December 22nd, 2010 by Paul Stern

Freedom from gluten is becoming easier than ever, especially if you happen to be eating at the University of Connecticut.

Are you gluten-intolerant?

If you are not, odds are you know someone who is.

And if you are – as are an estimated 1 in 100 people who have celiac disease – you know how hard it is to eat gluten-free.

But it is getting easier – especially if you are dining at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, where the gluten-free menu is state of the art.

I sampled some of UConn’s gluten-free food the other day with Dennis Pierce, UConn’s director of dining services, and Robert Landolphi, manager of (more…)

Tis the season for gift giving and for those of you not familiar with the gluten-free diet this can be a time of confusion.  It can be difficult to give someone on the gluten-free diet food because some of us avoid additional allergens and not all gluten-free food is created equal.

Christmas Gluten-free Lemon Almond Cookie Recipe

December 14th, 2010 by Amy Fothergill

I tend to over think blogging so my intent is to be short and sweet (good luck to me). Many years ago, I had a recipe for Lemon Almond Cookies. I had copied it from a magazine (specifically from Gourmet, Feb 1990) and kept it all of these years. It is hand written on a recipe card; I added my own interpretation and instructions. At Christmas, I always made these delicious, sweet and crisp cookies.

I’m not sure of the last time I made them but in recent years, with a gluten-free diet, I haven’t even attempted them. This year, I just couldn’t take it and decided to (more…)
