What happens when you get a craving for something that brings back a memory and it has gluten in it? You find a way to make a gluten free version of it. I published a similar (paleo) version of this recipe a year or so ago, but when I decided to do something fun for Celiac Awareness Day 2018, I made a short, 3-ish minute video of this updated, easier version to show just how easy they are to make. (It’s on my youtube channel).

The only difference between the two recipes is the marshmallow, and the time it takes to make it. In the paleo version, the marshmallow is made from scratch and takes more time to do it.  In this version, the marshmallow is easier and faster to make. And, if you prefer, you can use your favorite Gluten Free boxed cake mix, just make sure to adjust the ingredients for the filling and marshmallow, since this recipe makes 6 cakes, and the boxed mix likely makes more.  Continue Reading

What comes to mind when you think of gluten free sandwich bread? Thick as a brick, dry and crumbly, can only be eaten toasted, expensive, or just plain yuck and something that was written off years ago. People always ask if I’ve ever come across a really good GF sandwich loaf recipe, which for years the answer was “nope,” until now!

I’ve been gluten free for so long now, I think I’ve developed an aversion to store bought loaf breads that crumble at the mere thought of a piece of turkey and some lettuce. Here’s a Gluten Free, Grain Free, Gum Free, Yeast Free, Soy Free and Dairy Free loaf bread (which can be made with dairy if you prefer). Continue Reading

Some people love white bread, others prefer a honey-wheat flavor. With that said, finding one that’s gluten free that you actually like is another story. Like the white bread recipe, this one stays together when you’re eating a sandwich. It’s also grain free, dairy free, yeast free and xanthan gum free! And the little extra sweetness makes for the perfect nut butter and jelly sandwich or some yummy French toast!

This recipe is the base for my Cinnamon Raisin Bread too!  Note! No wheat was used to make this recipe!

If you like a visual on how it’s made, visit the gluten-free-way You Tube channel to see this short video that includes a fast and easy way to line a loaf pan with parchment! Continue Reading

No longer a casualty of your gluten free lifestyle! Pizza Rolls are back, baby!  Our family used to love these little gluten-filled gems – they were a snacking go-to back in the day because they were convenient and tasty.   Because I haven’t had them in maybe a decade, I started getting that craving for an off limits food experience that couldn’t ever happen. You know how that goes, right? So I went to work on making these. The main flour used is cassava flour, and it is readily available in many healthy grocery stores or online. It’s really a great flour to have on hand if you’re gluten free and grain free. Continue Reading

I’m thinking of starting a new category for my blog called, “Foods You Wish Were GF, But Aren’t… But Now Are!” This one took several tries to get it right, thanks to some really tough criticism from my gluten eaters who pushed me to keep making it so it could be as close to perfect (and crispy) as possible. They are really easy to make, once you get the hang of it (I’ve included a visual guide below to show you the technique).  Continue Reading

Cherry tomatoes are probably the easiest, most abundant tomato to grow at home. Our plants have been producing hoards of them this year, both red and golden varieties. Because I don’t like letting anything go to waste, we’ve been roasting them because I’m just not ready to do any canning. It takes about 15 minutes to prep them, then 45 minutes in the oven. Continue Reading

I’ve got to admit, I get a little motivated when I see cooking shows do stuff that is a challenge for gluten free. One of those recent things is grilled pizza. Have you ever seen where the chef takes some uncooked dough (with gluten) and tosses is on the grill and proceeds to make a yummy looking, bubbly dough pizza? The gluten free doughs I’ve made are more sticky than their gluten counterparts, so tossing it on the grill is basically a no-go. Continue Reading

Mmmm, potato salad! One of my favorite side dishes in the summer is my mom’s potato salad – the typical egg-based potato salad with lots of crunchy vegetables – which we make several times during the summer.

For this one, we did things a little different. As a celiac, I’ve been known to overdo certain recipes to the point I just can’t bring myself to eat it anymore – you know, you find something tasty and safe and just keep making and eating the same stuff for days.  So, instead of overdoing my mom’s recipe, this salad came about.

You learn the most interesting stuff at Gluten Free Expos. I was honored to do some food demos at an expo in Columbus, Ohio recently, and met several people who asked me if I had a good pierogi recipe. That’s what I adore about meeting up with people at expos – especially the regional flare that comes with it. So, you can thank the folks in Ohio for the inspiration for this recipe. And of course, these are not only super-easy to make, but they also have a DAIRY FREE option too! As I post this recipe, I’m also posting my “recap” of the Columbus expo you can read here. I try to make it a point to keep up with the direction of our gluten free population, and in turn, create the stuff we all miss the most! Continue Reading

Remember these? It’s basically a Twinkie basking in the glory of raspberry and coconut (you can omit the raspberry and coconut and just make it a GF Twinkie). It made my family soooo happy, one sent a me text when I was traveling the other day to tell me how enjoyable dessert time had been. The iconic shape comes from a Twinkie Pan – yes, they do exist and of course you can buy it online, but you can also make them in the form of a cupcake, if you can’t wait of the delivery of the pan. Please note: these do not have the average 45 day shelf life of a regular Twinkie. In our house, we are lucky they last 45 minutes! Continue Reading
