Gluten-free Super Bowl Recipe Round Up

February 2nd, 2011 by Jennifer Harris

Since the Super Bowl is this weekend, it seems fitting to round up all of the gluten-free recipes this Examiner can find.  We used to have fun hosting Super Bowl parties, but have since taken to just a quiet gathering.  When we hosted, some of my favorite dishes to prepare were: deviled eggs, seven layer dip, veggie tray, homemade dips (hot and cold), chili, wings from Allergy Free Foods, chicken nuggets from Applegate Farms, and brownies. Keep the menu simple and limit it to things you are comfortable preparing. No need to get stressed out on such a fun day of sports, commercials and of course gluten-free food.

Here are links to gluten-free Super Bowl recipes: (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.

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…)
