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…
Here’s how the construction of this pie took place… Read More »
I’m lucky. I got to ask Aida this question up close and personal. If you don’t know her name, you should. Aida Mollenkamp is California-based food expert, TV host, writer, and culinary curator. She studied at the Cornell Hotel School (like me!) and Le Cordon Bleu Paris before joining CHOW.com where she worked behind the scenes as Food Editor. Eventually, she moved to television where she hosted her Food Network show Ask Aida (you get the pun now) and later the Cooking Channel show, foodCrafters.
If you eat gluten-free, you might think there aren’t a lot of choices for bread out there. A few years ago, I discovered Udi’s products and pretty much haven’t gone back since. The bread in particular was so much better than most of the other gluten-free bread that was being sold. Other brands more closely resembled cardboard than anything I would put turkey upon. My kids, at 6 and 4 years old, were able to make the change as well. I noticed though, my son would eat the meat and was very often not eating the bread. We tried toasting it and that really seemed to help. No more bread waste with the exception of a few crusts here and there.
