Chocolate Sorbet Recipe: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free


I get given boxes of chocolates by my mother-in-law occasionally, but they always have wheat in.  Added to that the amount of dairy in chocolates is enough to cause me trouble.  I used to squeeze all the chocolates in a mixed box to find the ones that were firm (fortunately husband loves soft-centred chocolates) but mostly now I have just given up buying chocolates.

We have had about three hot days this summer, and thoughts turn to ice-cream.  I keep coming across people posting about chocolate sorbet.  This seemed a great way of having two types of treats at once.

This sorbet is very intense, and one small scoop is enough for me.  It would be great with raspberries or other Read More »

Is the Gluten-Free Diet Still Relevant?

Remember when the gluten-free diet was all the rage in the news?
Not anymore.
Now, it is more often than not treated as a scam.
The news even tells you it is dangerous…unless you are diagnosed by a doctor, of course.
Gluten is said to be something best left to doctors…the professionals.
If you beat the odds, and are actually successfully diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, most doctors think all you need to do to get healthy is remove gluten from your diet .
A woman told us her doctor said, “just stop eating pizza and bagels,” after she was diagnosed with celiac disease.
Two years later, her daughter was born with a cleft lip.

Buckwheat: The Gluten-Free Superfood!


Don’t let the name fool you. Buckwheat is anything but wheat. It is much more nutritious than wheat and, in spite of the name, is completely gluten-free.

Buckwheat has been grown in America since colonial days. Buckwheat was once very common on farms in the northeastern and northcentral United States. Production of buckwheat reached a peak in 1860s at which time the grain was a common livestock-feed and was in demand for making flour. Buckwheat enjoyed a resurgence of popularity in the mid 1970’s that was brought on by the demand for commercially prepared breakfast cereal and by exports to Japan for making buckwheat noodles. This boom was due to the nutritional excellence of buckwheat.(1)
