  • New Gluten-Free Bread at Trader Joe's

    Gluten-Free Fun
    24 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
    Trader Joe's just launched two new gluten-free breads trying to meet an ever-growing demand for gluten-free products at the store. A few of my readers mentioned this bread to me and then my sister bought the new white sandwich bread at her local Trader Joe's. She said it was most similar to Udi's Bread and was happy to see it readily available and on the shelves. I was very curious to understand how the bread was produced and if it was made in a dedicated gluten-free facility so I contacted customer service. It took a few days, but I finally received this response from Trader…

    Dude note: I’ll be sprinkling pics of Udi’s bread throughout this post. All pictures were taken directly from Udi’s Facebook page in the past 30 days. Keep reading past each pic. If it seems I’ve been laying it a bit heavy on Udi’s lately, well…I’m not gonna argue. And I know some of my fellow celiacs kinda wish I would leave them alone. But honestly, all I’m trying to do is help them, which in turn will help us. Why am I giving them a hard time? 3 reasons. 1) They DOMINATE the gluten-free market, making it more difficult for the smaller brands…

  • Shared Microwaves Question

    12 Apr 2015 | 12:25 pm
    I have a question. I have Celiac Disease and am very sensitive to gluten. In fact, I only prepare my own food and never eat out. However, I do sometimes use other microwaves to heat up my food at work (and these microwaves have been used for gluten-containing foods). Am I in danger of having tiny bits of gluten fall into my food while I microwave it? (I do have my food on a plate or in a bowl, with no direct contact with the oven). Is it also possible that I could get gluten "fumes" that will get into my food and contaminate it?

I don’t like to eat a lot of frozen meals, but it is nice to have something like this on hand for those busy evenings.

The odd thing is- her cake doesn't even have lemon (strange the way our mind works and sweeps us away along memory traceries of scent and flavor) but I started craving a cake laced with citrus- not too sweet and not too light. A cake with character and heft.The day I decided to bake, of course, I had no ricotta, but I did have organic plain yogurt and plenty of blanched…
  • Sweet Potato Black Bean Enchiladas - Gluten-Free Fabuloso

    12 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    Award winning enchiladas- my sweet potato and black bean combo. Karina's Sweet Potato Black Bean EnchiladasThis budget-friendly vegetarian enchilada recipe is one of those happy accidents that spring from a burst of creative inspiration. I was craving the soft and spicy comfort of enchiladas one windy spring night back in 2003, and I had none of the usual suspects on hand (no chicken, or beef, no pinto beans).But I had one lovely mother of a sweet potato. I had a can of organic black beans in the pantry.Some roasted green chiles.One lonely lime.And your intrepid Mamacita at large thought,…
  • Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins Without Xanthan Gum

    6 Apr 2015 | 5:15 pm
    Baking Without Xanthan Gum, I Am.When I first set foot on this lonely gluten-free road (it was 2001, remember, pre-gluten-free boon; there was nary a gluten-free bagel or wheat-free blueberry muffin in sight), I wrestled with converting my beloved tried and true wheat flour recipes, gamely baking and tossing too many gluten-free hockey pucks and brick loaves to count. Until I discovered xanthan gum- the weirdo secret ingredient that gave gluten-free batter and dough a hint of that elusive stretchy tenderness that gluten once gifted. Xanthan gum was a find.And it has been a nifty little…

    Gluten-Free Fun

  • New Gluten-Free Bread at Trader Joe's

    24 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
    Trader Joe's just launched two new gluten-free breads trying to meet an ever-growing demand for gluten-free products at the store. A few of my readers mentioned this bread to me and then my sister bought the new white sandwich bread at her local Trader Joe's. She said it was most similar to Udi's Bread and was happy to see it readily available and on the shelves. I was very curious to understand how the bread was produced and if it was made in a dedicated gluten-free facility so I contacted customer service. It took a few days, but I finally received this response from Trader…

    Have you guys seen this new Tumblr blog yet? It's called Gluten-Free Museum and basically all of the gluten has been Photoshopped out of famous pieces of art (and some cartoons). This site is probably a joke poking fun at us, but it really puts things into perspective.We all know that almost all of the removed foods below can now be made gluten-free, but I think this puts our gluten-free diets into an interesting perspective. It shows you exactly how much gluten is embedded into our diets, culture, and history. Gluten is an integral part of human culture. It is only the special few that must…

  • Thai-style Asparagus Recipe

    Carol Kicinski
    26 Apr 2015 | 9:08 am
    One thing I love about this time of year is all the fresh and gorgeous asparagus! And while I could eat simple, steamed asparagus almost every day, there are times when I feel obligated to make something a little fancier. A little different. A little out there. I’m a big fan of big flavors. And I am a big fan of Thai flavors. So I decided to try to make a Thai-style asparagus. A dish that is company-worthy and yet unexpected. I mean asparagus with hollandaise – fabulous. But predictable. Thai-style asparagus – also fabulous and anything but predictable. This recipe has three components;…
  • Gluten Free Cherry Brownie Trifles Recipe

    23 Apr 2015 | 8:20 am
    I like homemade desserts that can be served simply and look “homey” but can also be all dolled up if need be. These Cherry Brownie Trifles are just that kind of dessert. They start with a grain free brownie (perfectly delicious all on its own btw) and then get layered with some whipped cream, a simple whole cherry sauce and then to top it all off a maraschino cherry and some adorable little chocolate curls. Of course, you could always just use a dusting of cocoa powder but then you won’t have your dinner guests exclaiming “how did you make these?!?” When I am just needing a homey…
  • Gluten Free Italian Baked Eggs Recipe

    Eggs are such a staple in my home. They are an inexpensive form of protein, so versatile, and in most cases, a really quick way to get breakfast, lunch, or dinner on the table. These Italian Baked Eggs can be served at any meal and are ready in about 20 minutes – give or take. Serve them up with a loaf of gluten free French bread or baguettes and you really don’t need much else. OK, you can add a salad if you’re making these for dinner. And maybe some dessert. But I digress … The point is, this recipe is delicious, nutritious, and even seems pretty fancy. I have these adorable little…

    This is not your mama’s coconut cream meringue pie! This pie is gluten, grain, dairy, and refined sugar free, paleo, and well … pretty darn amazing! Not to mention, impressive as all get out. Before you look at the recipe and start thinking there are too many steps to this pie and decide it must be complicated, know this – there are basically just three steps; crust, filling, meringue. And none of these steps are very complicated. You just need to take it one step at a time. Kind of like how one goes about changing their life for the better – one step at a time.

Recently, both my sisters along with their families, and their families’ families, my sons, their families, and some other assorted relatives and friends arrived in town for a big celebration. It was my father’s 91st (!!!) birthday.

    My first standalone thriller, Blood Always Tells, just came out in paperback. (It’s actually my fourth novel, but it’s the first one that isn’t part of the mystery series I also write.) When Macmillan’s Tor/Forge division first published it last year, I went on a whirlwind tour across North America, which gave me the opportunity to suss out some celiac-safe places to eat… though no time to write about them! But I kept notes and want to share a few favorites that stand out in my memory. Pizza Fusion in Denver, Colorado The restaurant’s tagline is,…

    One of the most amazing things about creating the Gluten-Free Guidebook is that it’s introduced me to so many terrific people. A case in point: my friend Liisa P., a reader who lives in Arizona. I had the great pleasure of meeting her in person for the first time when I was on tour for my debut novel, The Damage Done, and I’ve been lucky enough to see her on each book tour since (my fourth novel, Blood Always Tells, came out in April). Liisa has written a Reader Report about Hawaii for the Gluten-Free Guidebook in the past. Here, she shares her experience in St. Maarten. Thanks so…

    3 Feb 2014 | 6:36 pm
    When I was first diagnosed with celiac disease in 2004, I felt like I’d never be able to travel again. Just communicating my dietary needs in English seemed daunting enough, so how was I going to manage it in a foreign tongue? Fortunately, I’ve had a lot of help. In the past decade, I’ve visited plenty of places where I didn’t speak the language — including Peru, Chile, Argentina, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Turkey, and Israel — and I’ve been able to arrange for gluten-free meals along the way. Eating at a restaurant is always an exercise in trust; for the…
  • What I Wish I’d Known When I Was Diagnosed With Celiac Disease

    Hilary
    19 Aug 2013 | 6:53 pm
    The main focus of the Gluten-Free Guidebook is about traveling and dining out. But, in the past few months, several friends have been diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, and that’s made me think about how tough the transition to a gluten-free diet can be. When I was diagnosed, back in 2004, I remember thinking that my career as a travel writer was over, and that I’d never be able to eat at a restaurant again. I was wrong on both fronts, but it took me a while to learn that. I wanted to share some of the things I wish I’d known when I was first diagnosed.

I did a professional chef gig wherein garlic truffle fries where on the menu, i.e., deep fryer required. So, how did I get to this? Owning a deep fryer of my own? Okay, I can only say, “Thanks, Mom!” Indirectly, details not necessary, she is to thank for the amazingly larger than expected deep fryer which now resides most of the time in my pantry, but sometimes on my kitchen counter…frying away.

That means that today is unanimously my favorite day: the first day of spring, the Spring Equinox.

It may not even fit into the category of gourmet. In which case I say, you have to get out of the box sometimes! It was, however, derived from one of those, “Oh my gosh, I have to have it now!” moments where nothing else would do. Nothing. And it had to be pretty much now! I just treated myself – using the word “treated” lightly  – to two yoga classes. I decided to try an “advanced” Bikram yoga class. The…

    You already know about my Recipe Request Form. I know you know, because you give it a regular workout every day—and I love it. You really do have the best ideas, and with so many recipes already up here on the blog and so many more in my cookbooks, sometimes I need a little inspiration boost. One of the things you ask about quite a lot is cheesecake. Why oh why don’t I have a recipe for traditional New York-style cheesecake on the blog? What kind of a person doesn’t have such a recipe? Well, this kind. Because cheesecake is naturally gluten free! But when I have a chance to work…
  • Yogurt-Coated Gluten Free Chewy Strawberry Granola Bars

    22 Apr 2015 | 6:03 am
    In the early, narrative chapters of my newest cookbook, Gluten Free Classic Snacks, there’s a whole section on “Ingredients and Substitutions.” I talk about everything from dairy-free substitutions for dairy ingredients to how to swap out refined sugars for unrefined ones. Since each of the recipes in the book is a “copycat” recipe, we use plenty of refined sugars. If you want the precise taste and texture of the original, packaged snack, that’s what it’ll take. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t go in another direction, which is why…
  • Gluten Free Pineapple Upside Down Cake

    I’ve been making homemade Jello-type gelatin, something I thought I’d never do. I blame my D.I.Y. Friday series, not to mention my new cookbook for making me think that anything can be made at home from scratch. Oh, and of course I blame my children, one of whom once asked me years ago, “Mom, do you think you could make your own water?” It’s just so easy, and then I can make it actually healthy (gelatin is actually super good for you) and control the amount and type of sweetener. Well, that got me started thinking about different Jello flavors I could make, and…
  • Gluten Free Hostess-Style Crunch Donettes

    17 Apr 2015 | 5:47 am
    To calm my nerves when I have a new cookbook come out, I bake my way through the recipes in it. That’s how I remind myself that yes, I did develop develop develop then test, test and retest every recipe, and that they all work. Along the way, I also end up developing some new recipes that could have been in the new book, but that I honestly just didn’t think of in time. With my newest cookbook, Gluten Free Classic Snacks, nothing has changed. I’ve been baking plenty of gluten free Hostess Chocolate Cupcakes and Twinkies (the Twinkies are in the oven as I type!), and I just…

  • Say Hello to Gluten Free Pigs-In-A-Blanket!

    Emily Moore
    27 Apr 2015 | 9:51 am
    While researching fun food-related holidays, I came across Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day, and I couldn’t help smiling. The last time I ate one of those, it sat in the large rectangular well of a faded cafeteria tray. My mom wasn’t big on hotdogs, and that was before consumer awareness was a thing. Of course, this meant that once I was out on my own, I tried out a plethora of sausages and settled on one fact: I love them all. Most sausages and hotdogs are, thankfully, gluten-free. The exceptions tend to fall under specific types of add-ins such as the alcohol in beer brats. As always, make sure…
  • Delightful Gluten Free Animal Crackers

    Emily Moore
    23 Apr 2015 | 6:11 am
    There’s something nostalgic about animal crackers, something that magically tugs memories out of the minds of adults and makes our growing-too-fast children or grandchildren slow down just long enough to indulge in their box. These special moments are probably why they have an entire day dedicated to Animal Crackers, which was April 18th (sorry, yes, we’re late!). Someone somewhere wanted to celebrate it. Whenever I see or hear animal crackers, I hear Shirley Temple singing, “Animal crackers in my soup….” What if we could enjoy these little cookies more often? It’s as simple…
  • Moist Gluten Free Bread Machine Buttermilk Sandwich Bread

    Emily Moore
    10 Apr 2015 | 12:08 pm
    When it comes to making a sandwich, most celiacs or gluten avoiding consumers find themselves frustrated about the crumbly, must-toast options on the market. I’ve read many forum and blog comments pertaining to this problem. This gluten free, bread machine buttermilk sandwich bread recipe offers a home-made version that not only has a limited number of fancy flours to buy but also can be easily made in a bread machine. The linseeds and sunflowers seeds add just the right amount of texture and flavor to the rice flour. This loaf can be easily frozen in slices for future use. Best of all, it…
  • Tender Gluten Free Ginger Spice Cinnamon Rolls

    8 Apr 2015 | 12:07 pm
    The ginger fusion of these gluten free spicy cinnamon buns (or rolls, if you’d rather call them) will have you rethinking the recipe you got in your home Ec. class. The ginger and cardamom will demand being made throughout the year; gluten consuming and gluten avoiding guests both will love them. Another bonus is that these can easily be made ahead of time or frozen for future cooking if you can’t eat the entire batch. (See details in the recipe steps.) The dough can also be mixed in a bread machine if you’d rather save your wrists. Just follow manufacturer’s directions for…
  • Simply Delicious Gluten Free Paleo Pita Bread

    Spring gets me even more excited for the coming Summer. There’s almost nothing better than a falafel, cucumber, and dressing-filled gluten free, paleo pita bread to help perk up my mood with the weather. I personally like mine spicy, but what’s great about pitas are how versatile they can be. There’s an endless list of options, everything from leftover salads or stews to traditional Greek cuisine to peanut butter and jelly for the kiddos. Sweet rice flour and fresh plantain makes the recipe below not only gluten free but also a great option for paleo diets. (This recipe also makes a…

    Making the Gluten-Free Diet Journey

  • The Truth About Modified Food Starch

    21 Apr 2015 | 8:35 am
    Modified food starch occurs when food starches have been modified or altered by adding enzymes or chemicals to break them down. Without this modification, they are essentially useless to the food industry. Modifying the starch is how instant pudding mixes can thicken up by only adding milk. The cornstarch in the mix has been altered to produce that property. When plagued with food
  • Gluten-Free Banana Nut Bread (with Dairy-Free Options)

    I've been trying for a while now to come up with a deliciously moist gluten-free banana nut bread recipe that stays moist even after sitting on the counter for a couple of days. The old standby banana bread recipe I used to use before my gluten-free lifestyle began just wasn't adaptable for some reason. I don't know why. It would be great the day I baked it, but by the next morning, that
  • Are Cheerios Gluten Free?

    6 Apr 2015 | 11:12 am
    Cheerios are not currently gluten free, but Gluten-Free Cheerios will soon hit store shelves. Will they actually be gluten free? Maybe. Maybe not. It all depends on how you define the term "gluten free." With the high cost of gluten-free foods, especially foods that carry gluten-free certification, it just makes sense to check your local grocery store shelves for cheaper alternatives.
