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.

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 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.

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
In 30 minutes, you can create a little something different to make gluten free life a bit more exciting and satisfying! If sweet, savory, smoky and a little kick are your thing, then read on. Versatile? You bet. It is an outstanding burger topping, a yummy appetizer when topped on a toasted GF baguette slice that’s been slathered with a little mascarpone or cream cheese. But, one of our favorite uses of this jam is on a pizza – spread it on your favorite GF pizza crust and place in the oven to heat it through. Sprinkle with (GF labeled) gorgonzola/blue cheese and wait for an overwhelming “Yum!” from your recipients!
Add some kick and crunch to your burgers (or even a salad) with these super-simple fried jalapeño rings. The inspiration came from strolling the aisles of a grocery store in Nevada recently, and right next to the French fried onions in a can were some French fried jalapeños, so naturally, I had to make them GF. Frying takes a little bit of the fiery bite out of these, so if you prefer a little milder level of heat when it comes to peppers, these might be a good option for burgers and such. Continue Reading
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?
