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
Oh Joy! This recipe was super-approved in our house! It’s basically the Honey Un-Wheat Sandwich Loaf with tasty cinnamon-raisin-nut blend swirled throughout. We will slice it, then freeze it to keep it fresh. If you have leftovers, you can turn it into French toast in no time.
This recipe is not only gluten free, but grain free, xanthan gum free, yeast free, soy free and dairy free too, although you can make the dairy version if you are good with dairy.
I created a short video on how to make this, with a super quick instruction on how to line a loaf pan with parchment. Click here for a White Sandwich Loaf or a Honey Un-Wheat Loaf!
It’s been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And breakfast foods usually fall into the category of the least time consuming in terms of preparation in our house. Be it cereal, a cup of yogurt of a banana, sometimes a more substantial food like waffles is worth the few extra minutes. With so many gluten free products out there, it’s pretty easy to find a flour blend that will make some pretty good waffles in a short timeframe. Like lots of gluten free stuff, once you find the flour blends that provide the taste and textures you like, gluten free life isn’t so bad.. Continue Reading
Oh the stuff you can make with vegetables! Wraps are a great way to get extra veggies in your day and in some instances, enjoy them even more than ever. And, sometimes a wrap seems just better than bread because I don’t know about you, but I think GF bread can get a bit boring, or just takes a little too long to defrost when I’m hungry.
This is the third wrap recipe I’ve created this year (see the other recipes HERE). This gluten-grain-dairy-gum free recipe came about after trying a raw wrap made from zucchini of all things, while I was on a camping trip – the wrap itself tasted awesome, but it was the texture that I was not a fan of.

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.

They bend, but they don’t break! Sounds a lot like my gluten free life – it’s had it’s moments, but it’ll never break me! Especially when I make something you can’t tell is GF…like these awesome spinach wraps. If you miss wraps that are full of flavor and have a lovely, chewy texture, you are in the right place! Invest about 30 minutes or so and you’ll be able to make several wraps that you can freeze for a quick and satisfying meal another day. Fill them with your favorite meats, cheeses, veggies, salad (that’s a chicken salad in the photo). Or, make a breakfast burrito. Fan of roasted red peppers? Check out the Gluten Free Wraps – Roasted Red Pepper & Garlic flavor too!
I lost sleep over this one, for no other reason than I couldn’t wait to get started to see if what my little old brain was thinking would actually have some reality attached to it. Living GF for so long, I really have learned to keep my expectations low when it comes to sandwiches and anything that has to do with bread. Now that the weather is getting warmer, the thought of wraps appealed to me, but I didn’t want one that was dry or full of ingredients to keep it shelf stable. And the ones I would be interested in buying are so dang expensive. Continue Reading
In a breakfast rut? Start your day with some yummy granola – with milk or toss it on top of some fruit and yogurt. In this GRAIN FREE recipe, lemon is the star and takes this granola on a departure from your standard, almost too familiar, cinnamon-type granola. It makes for a great snack, and a topping for ice cream too! Continue Reading
Is it Entenmanns? Is it from New Jersey? No! It’s a gluten free crumb cake I made at home! As I continue down my never-ending gluten free journey, I get these little cravings of foods I used to love dearly. Growing up in Jersey, this was probably one of the best foods. Ever. I even worked at a bakery when I was in high school that made this among other gluten-filled foods that I long for every now and then. It’s been decades since I lived in the garden state, and Entenmann’s brand of crumb cake was a pretty good substitute for the real thing, but whenever my husband had to travel back to NJ, I always asked him to stop and get some crumb cake, pack it in his suitcase and bring it home…which he did!
