I really thought it was a joke when I heard about Luce’s Gluten-Free Artisan Bread mixes. I mean how could a bread mix that doesn’t require you to activate yeast, or let it proof really work? To produce an artisan loaf of bread, all you add is water, then stir, and bake, which sounds way too simple to actually work. I don’t know how they did it, but this mix produces gluten-free bread with a crispy crust and a soft, moist middle that is quite easy to make.

When you are looking for an elegant dish that you can serve to both adults and kids, try this one. The recipe is courtesy of Aida Mollenkamp from her book “Keys to the Kitchen” (see the interview and blog post here). I made it for Christmas Dinner this past holiday and everyone raved.
Now, if you notice, the recipe is far from dairy-free so it was off-limits for my daughter (however, there are dairy substitutes below). I didn’t really think it was going to be her thing, so after sauteing the chicken, I put some aside for her and proceeded with the recipe. If you know me, I’m not one to make two meals but I do accommodate her special diet by being just a little creative. I promise, it’s possible.
After reviewing Aida’s book, this one really stuck out. However, being The Family Chef, I had to put my own spin on it and make it a bit more family friendly. It’s naturally gluten-free and absolutely delicious. If you need some of your own keys in the kitchen, check out Aida’s book.

You will be asked my many people what the point of a gluten-free diet is. They might label you as a Celiac, hipster, or a picky-eater. Sometimes you might feel like an outcast. Don’t.
Know the benefits a gluten-free diet brings to your health. Remind yourself of that whenever you feel resistance from others. Be confident in your decision to be healthy.
