The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) shares these 5 tips for navigating the dating scene while staying gluten-free. Read More »

Simple and Delicious Blueberry Banana Parfait

bella-mckenzie-blueberry-banana-parfait


One thing that I have really enjoyed this past summer is making breakfast parfaits.

I do not know what it is, but they are just light on the system and they kinda trip the body into thinking that it’s getting a sugary treat so you don’t crave sugar all day (YAY!)

This parfait is sweet, HEALTHY, and satisfying!

Theresa Gluten Free Works

I always have such good intentions when it comes to food. I often go to bed after reading a cookbook and dream about the amazingly healthy and delicious food that I will make the next day. “Tomorrow will be different,” I tell myself. “Tomorrow I will cook a healthy lunch for myself, do some baking and
perhaps even change out of my PJ’s before lunch.”

But more often than not, this ideal day never happens.
However, today was different. There weren’t Read More »

Spiced Sweet-Potato Cake Recipe; Gluten and Dairy Free

sweet potato cakeThis cake is soft and reminiscent of the filling in pumpkin pie.  Not surprising really, when it has mashed sweet potato as its main ingredient.

To do ahead of time

Cook sweet potatoes in the microwave (or oven if you have it running for something else) until they are soft.  Mine took about eight minutes – four small sweet potatoes. Leave to cool then remove the peel and mash.  I found it easiest to cut an end off and scoop the sweet potato out with a circular action with a fork.  Do this ahead of time so you don’t be tempted to work with them while they are very hot and burn yourself.   Keep the peel and spritz with oil, put on a baking sheet, and cook for 20-30 minutes in the oven for a crisp scoop for spicy salsa.

Spring Forward with Pistachio Cheesecake Recipe

Kim Bouldin Gluten Free Works

Did you remember to Spring forward Sunday? I can’t believe it is this time already!  I am so excited about it being light later, that I really don’t care about the hour of lost sleep.  Make sure to ask me how I feel about that in a couple of weeks when my schedule is all screwed up, okay?

With Spring, comes St. Patrick’s Day and Easter. I don’t quite celebrate St. Patrick’s Day the way I used to, and my body thanks me for that.  This St. Patrick’s Day, perhaps I’ll indulge in some green eggs & ham or Pistachio Cheesecake (just happens to be green), instead of green beer.

Steamed Shrimp and Vegetables Recipe. A Le Creuset and EdgeWare Review & Giveaway!!

Jenny Manseau Gluten Free Works
Over the last three and a half years I have had the opportunities to do many reviews of great products. I truly enjoy doing reviews of cookbooks, and gluten-free products, and I’m looking forward to do more in the future along with any culinary based items (kitchen appliances, tools, etc.).

I love kitchen gadgets. Here are a few of my “must-haves”  items: Chef Knife, Stand Mixer, Mixing Bowls (different sizes), Prep Bowls, Boning Knife, Steamer (pan/bamboo basket), Zester, Grater, Silicone Whisk, a good set of Non-Stick Pans, Cast Iron Skillet, and a Crock-Pot. There are plenty more items, however this is a great starting point.

Two of my favorite companies for kitchen products are EdgeWare and Le Creuset. I mean, don’t well all hope to own their products?? I was sent one of each of the following products to test out and review and I have to say, I am honestly in love with both of them. And, now two lucky winners will have a chance to win one of the following prizes (one winner for the Zester, and one for the Farm Fresh Steamer!)

First up we have a fantastic Zester from EdgeWare – The V-etched Better Zester! Here is what their website has to say about it: Read More »
