Gluten Free Banana Drunk Macaroons

July 28th, 2011 by Leanne Vogel


I hadn’t realized it while planning this weeks’ posts, but there is an ongoing theme for many of the recipes this week.

fiber + healthy and happy digestion

I just love fiber, don’t you?

Abusing my body throughout my teenage and early adult years left me with a very broken digestive system.

After going through countless tests, x-rays, medications, hospital visits, acupuncture, massage therapists, and exercises I said enough is enough! And I made a promise to myself that I would (more…)

Two Quick and Easy Gluten-free Dips

July 18th, 2011 by Amy Fothergill

Instead of opening a jar of olive tapenade or a dip from the refrigerated section of the market, consider making your own. If you keep some key ingredients on hand and have a small food processor or blender, you are in business!

Gluten Free Olive TapenadeThe olive tapenade is so easy and so much better when made fresh. The beauty of it is that you can make a small amount if you are just having a few friends or more for a party. It can be used on top of chicken or even in a sandwich. And when you make it yourself, you can control the salt, garlic and rosemary (or even omit one of these).

The white bean spread is a great starter and really healthy. This recipe calls for (more…)

I love to do research!  And in the gluten free industry that means sampling gluten free food.  

Today I am particularly happy to be sampling Joan’s GF Great Bakes products recently introduced to the market; specifically the multi-grain English muffins.  She is updating her delicious line, which includes bialy’s, Italian bread, bagels, English muffins, Scicilian pizza, corn toaster muffins, chocolate chip cookies and calzone, by adding double chocolate muffins, crumb cake, and multi-grain English muffins.

And Joan has really has done it again.  I am a proponent of healthy gluten free living and in large part those of us that are gluten intolerant (Celiac Disease, gluten sensitivity) have taken whole wheat out of our diets and are left with low-fiber, low-nutrient, dense food.  Joan’s multi-grain English muffins are made with 3 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber (amaranth, flax seed meal, organic buckwheat, and fortified with iron, vitamins A, B2, B6, B12, and D3, Calcium, Folic Acid) and (more…)

Gluten free soft pretzelsThere is just something about a warm, soft pretzel that reminds me of my youth.  Watching the Cubs play at Wrigley Field, enjoying the circus, or attending an amusement park just seemed better when you munched on a pretzel. Thanks to the good folks at Kim and Scott's Gourmet Pretzels now there is a frozen gluten-free pretzel to fill the void. (more…)

I took the cranberry walnut bar with me while snowboarding in Tahoe last weekend and it was a lifesaver. The snow was perfect so I didn't want to waste time going inside to eat and, (more…)

I used freeze-dried unsweetened strawberries (purchased at Costco) but if you can't locate this ingredient, substitute with your favorite dried fruit. Dried cherries or cranberries would look equally great in this Valentine's Day-inspired recipe.
