While shopping for munchies, I noticed the Pizza Al Pollo Asado at Trader Joe's. This Mexican-inspired pizza is made on a corn masa crust and is layered with grilled chicken, refried beans, jack cheese and salsa. I honestly had not noticed it before and according to the packaging, it is made with no gluten ingredients, so I gave it a shot.dffc5c97f4f107e8cd2c62d15f7c265b

Gluten-Free Oz

March 18th, 2013 by Laura Hanley

As you may know, Oz the Great and Powerful has made a cinematic comeback with the help of the dashing James Franco. In the strangest of ways, this movie’s plot relates directly to the gluten-free diet. This version of the classic Wizard of Oz does not include Dorothy or Toto, but it does include three types of witches and one great man that will learn how to defeat the evil that exists. Meet the characters of Oz the Great and Powerful:OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL

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…)

By the title of this post, I am sure many of you are probably wondering what I have in store for you today, but trust me, it’s a good little invention on my part!

Lately I am trying to limit my consumption of gluten-free bread products; not with the intention to lose weight, but rather I have realized that I feel better when I keep it to a limit. However, being someone who is always at the gym I need carbs in my diet to reenergize.

The other day I really want a PB & J sandwich. My only problem was I didn’t (more…)

Vegan and Gluten Free “Chocolate” Glazed Donuts

March 12th, 2013 by Bella McKenzie

Let me introduce you to my favorite - and the most popular of my donuts...The Vegan and Gluten Free Chocolatey Glazed Donuts.  No compromise in flavor here!  These are just like the classic favorite, except with a subtle coconut flavor in the amazingly simple and sweet chocolatey glaze, that does not require corn syrup (so its corn free!!).  These donuts are moist, and sincerely decadent.  You will for sure want to eat a second and third - easily.  Just picture yourself in your favorite coffee shop (Starbucks maybe???), served up one of these warm, chocolatey beauties.  I know, I know...

Gluten-Free Pesto Fettuccine with Chicken

March 11th, 2013 by Laura Hanley

Since I received the world’s greatest fettuccine noodles in the mail (thank you Cappello’s Gluten-Free), I was determined to make nothing but the classiest sauce to go with them. But, the problem is…I’m not a classy cook. I’m a “that’s too many steps, I’ll probably mess something up” type of cook, which is why this recipe for Pesto Cream Sauce screamed, “I’M YOUR PERFECT MATCH!” during the search my mother and I conducted.FettucineServing-300x300

When my husband and I lived in California, there was a place that we really loved to dine at named Dharma's.

Yes, it lived up to the name...

Cooky owner, rockstar looking workers, New Age decor...

Yet it was a wonderful place to eat out at. In fact, if you were in my town, it was an absolute must - everyone knew that.

This restaurant, beautifully was full of all sorts of healthy, organic, vegan, and gluten free clean eats. It was known for its colossal sized breakfast, lunch, and dinner options to try that crossed all cultural bounds - Indian cuisine, Asian, Mexican, Italian, American - you name it.

That was indeed our default go-to restaurant.Screen shot 2013-02-10 at 4.09.02 PM

I love to enjoy this almond milk with cereal, in smoothies, and in hot rooibos tea. I try to avoid drinking it by the glass, because it will usually be gone in a day if I do that.

Curried Cauliflower with Peas Recipe

March 8th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

A big thank you to Aida Mollenkamp (see my interview with her here) for this recipe from her recent book "Keys to the Kitchen." I have made this twice, both times with much success. The children (now almost 9 and 7) loved it as well. I put my family chef spin on it so it's not quite as spicy. I hope you'll try it, even if you think your kids are picky eaters. It's worth a shot!currycaulidish
