Sorry for the pun, but I couldn’t help it…A couple of years ago, I had my dad try one of my early GF breads that happened to be laden with tapioca flour. Apparently he liked it because he recently asked me for the recipe, but since he’s diabetic, I asked he give me a little time to create something more carb friendly. Yes, I made him a bread he really likes, but these snack crackers also happened around the same time and he really loves them, as does my family, since even a double batch rarely makes it beyond a day in our house.

It’s a cold cereal. It’s a hot cereal. As granola, enjoy it with milk of your choice, or mix it into yogurt. Or, in the event of a chilly morning, prepare it as a nice hot bowl of porridge. The Chai Mix is easy to make. And because it’s full of nuts and good stuff, you may not be hungry by mid-morning!
This one is at the top of the list for our family favorites. Like many pasta dishes, it can be difficult to recapture the flavors and textures of pre-GF days, but this lasagna seems to evoke positive comments with practically every bite! One piece is very filling, but in this family, we go back for seconds…and then plan some extra exercise to work it off. Continue Reading
Just in time for football season, prep this during the pregame and you’ll have an insanely delicious hot pizza right around kickoff! For a little extra kick, drizzle with additional hot sauce. If using blue cheese, make sure you find one that is gluten free.
Simply elegant, fantastic flavor and so easy to make, serve this sun dried tomato pomodoro on zucchini noodles (pictured) or your favorite gluten free pasta. It also tastes great cold! It pairs well with that Gluten Free Chicken Marsala in the foreground of the picture. For paleo folks, I imagine ghee could be a good substitute for the butter, but I’ve never tried it!
Some would say I’m 1 in a million, but really, I’m just 1 in 133 people with Celiac Disease (CD). Since diagnosis in 2009, I’ve experienced the ups and downs of this lifestyle change, struggling to stay nourished while keeping a smile on my face. I failed, I survived, and now I thrive. No one with CD or gluten intolerance should have to suffer or go it alone – my motivation is to help others quickly thrive with a gluten free (GF) lifestyle.
This is one of my favorite go-to recipes when I have gluten-eating guests over for dinner. Serve it with the Sun Dried Tomato Pomodoro Sauce (pictured in the background) and you may just get a few more folks who won’t wince when they hear the words “gluten free.” Capers are optional…search for ones that are safe for gluten free folks. The capers in this photo were made with wine vinegar.
Yummy…bacon, onion, pepper, garlic and mushrooms all together in one place with a little blue cheese and thyme to finish it off nicely. In some warm bacon dressings, bacon fat is a main ingredient, and if that’s your thing, then you could probably substitute the bacon fat for the olive oil. Blue cheese is optional, depending on your tolerance (and ability to find one that’s GF). Feta is a good alternative, but even with omitting the cheese it is also very tasty! Continue Reading
One of my family’s favorite places to eat in the western US was a small chain by the name of Café Rio. They are finally expanding their restaurants to places other than the west – good for them, sad for me. After my celiac diagnosis, this place had to come off the list (They do a very straightforward job online of indicating their liberal use of gluten). Continue Reading
