  • Can Blood Tests Tell You How Well You're Doing on the GF Diet?

    14 Apr 2014 | 1:30 am
    I frequently read comments from people with celiac disease who say they know they're not getting any trace gluten in their diets. How do they know this with such certainty? Because their follow-up celiac blood test results are negative, they say. But are those blood tests really a good way to track how well you're doing on the gluten-free diet?

  • Study: Gluten Causes Depression in Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity

    11 Apr 2014 | 3:12 am
    Medical research is starting to back what many of us have known intuitively for a long time: gluten causes feelings of depression in those with non-celiac gluten sensitivity. The link between depression and celiac disease is strong: multiple studies have documented higher levels of diagnosed depression in people who have celiac. But despite anecdotal evidence that many of those who react to gluten but who do not have celiac disease also suffer from depression, there's been little firm evidence of a connection....Read Full Post

    I love me some gluten-free ladyfingers! But it’s kind of a weird name for something you eat when you think about it. Ladyfingers are not only fun to eat as a treat by themselves, but they can be used within a lot of classic desserts…like tiramisu, trifles and charlottes. Schar makes a great gluten-free ladyfinger cookie that is available internationally. Did you know that Schar products are named after the Dr. Schar that started the company? He was one of the first manufacturers of gluten-free foods for people with gluten issues way back in 1922. And remember Anne Lee, the beloved…

    Gluten-Free Recipes - Baking & Cooking Tips

  • Types Of Flour?

    20 Apr 2014 | 9:30 pm
    I'm sure it's been asked but I can't find it when I searched.  I'm trying to buy a good flour for my daughter (our whole family).  Every flour I've tried is gritty or dense when I bake.  Is there something I'm doing wrong? We've tried making our own blend, we've tried all the bob mills brands, we've tried King Arthur All purpose. Am I baking wrong or is there a better flour I have yet to find? Or is this just an acquired taste we are going to have to get use to?   Thank you!

The second time it was a complete disaster - the motor got too hot, leaking black stuff on my counter top; it took much longer to blend the coconut, and when it was done it had a burnt taste to it and an off color (luckily the color wasn't from the black stuff that was leaking!). I was so disappointed. It was terrible. I tried it a third time since I had an extra bag of coconut, but even adding extra liquid it kept not blending properly and…

  • What Gives, Udi’s?

    19 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    I have been eating Udi’s Gluten-Free Bread for many years now. I was overjoyed when I discovered the commercial size loaves available at Jason’s Deli, and then Costco. That’s really the only way I eat sandwiches and PB & J now; I feel lost without my “normal” size bread. Last year I did notice a couple of the loaves I purchased had holes going right through the center. I returned those loaves and I haven’t seen any issues again until the other day. What gives? While this may not be a big deal with deli meat and cheese, it is with PB & J. Talk about a mess! I truly hope…

    Melt Bar & Grilled specializes in gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. The variety ranges from simple to extravagant, like the one I just read about with shrimp and grits. If you aren’t a grilled cheese person, no worries, there are salads and burgers to choose from as well. One might think that a restaurant that serves grilled cheese is the last place someone who follows the gluten-free diet would want to eat. Melt Bar & Grilled offers gluten-free bread for an extra $2.00. They take caution to use clean surfaces to prepare and cook the sandwiches and clean utensils to slice. As with…
  • Is Cricket Flour Gluten-Free?

    17 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    There are many things that those who follow a gluten-free diet must avoid, but cricket flour is not one of them. Cricket flour is gluten-free and exactly what you think it is…flour made from ground crickets. Why crickets? Read on… Insects are exceptionally nutritious. They are high in protein and low in saturated fats and sugars. They are a complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids, and are also high in micronutrients such as iron, calcium and B-vitamins. Crickets, for example, contain substantially more iron than beef. Insects have marginal environmental impact. They…
  • Gluten-Free Homemade Granola

    There is nothing better than homemade granola. Making granola and/or granola bars at home allows you to control the ingredients. You may find a recipe that you fall in love with and make it the same each time, or you may enjoy mixing things up and creating a new flavor journey each time. A good friend has been kind enough to share her granola recipe with us below. The recipe is gluten-free and can be made dairy-free by making some easy substitutions. Recipe: Melt 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1/2 cup almond (or other nut) butter, and 2/3 cup honey. Stir, remove from heat. While it is melting, toast 1…

    When I dine at California Pizza Kitchen, I normally order pizza. Yes, they have plenty of non-pizza gluten-free offerings, but since I feel that I can get those things anywhere, I splurge on the pizza. I met a friend and her children for lunch yesterday and finally had something other than pizza for the first time. I quickly fell in love and wonder what took me so long! Menu items that are gluten-free are clearly marked with a “GF”, making it easy to order. There were so many salads to choose from, I almost had to write them all down on separate pieces of paper, toss them in a hat and…

    Coconut cake heaven. Gluten-free and dairy-free deliciousness.Let Us Eat CakeBirthdays are complicated when you reach a certain age. Oh, don't get me wrong. You're grateful for another year. I mean. You're still alive and kicking, right? Waking up to a fresh start. Starting a spanking new year on the planet with one more number under your (slightly pinching) belt. A number that grants you a whisker more authority in the world. A tad more wisdom.If you've been paying attention to the lessons life likes to offer up as experience, and not sleepwalking, that is.

  • Gluten-Free Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

    29 Mar 2014 | 12:07 pm
    Crunchy outside, chewy inside, gluten-free vegan chocolate cookies.Double Chocolate Yum(and some gluten-free baking advice)  I have a new cookie recipe to share today. A cocoa infused cookie studded with semi-sweet chocolate chips. A cookie that tastes like a brownie- if a brownie was slightly crispy and crunchy on the outside, and chewy soft on the inside. You could say, it's a brownie with a cookie texture. Texture is a big deal in gluten-free baking. It's no secret that giving gluten the boot also means giving texture, stretch, and structure the old heave-ho, right along with it.

  • Gluten-Free Fun Friday Funny: Happy Passover

    18 Apr 2014 | 6:33 am
    Passover is a goldmine of gluten-free goodies at the supermarket. It is the time to load up on gluten-free macaroons, marble cakes, and even matzoh. The gluten-free offerings for Passover have grown over the years and now is the perfect time to load up for the weeks to come. Check out the gluten-free Passover food round-ups written by my friends Gluten-Free Philly and Gluten-Free Mike. Here is a link to my Passover photo round-up.
  • Gluten-Free Passover Grocery Jackpot

    16 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    A few weekends ago, I made a trip to the local Shoprite near my mom's house in Plainview, NY. With Passover approaching, I knew I would find some gluten-free treats at the supermarket. Never did I expect to see so many new gluten-free products on the shelves. In years past, I would normally find one or two gluten-free marble cakes or maybe some gluten-free cupcakes. Now, I think just about every Passover item has a gluten-free counterpart.Much of Long Island, New York and the surrounding tri-state area has a large Jewish population which makes some of this gluten-free Passover food so easy to…

  • My Birthday Wish for the Celiac Community

    9 Apr 2014 | 6:45 am
    Today is my 36th birthday. It feels weird to say this number out loud because I most certainly don't feel 36 nor do I think I look 36 (most days). I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 1981 and for the past thirty-three birthdays, I celebrated in a gluten-free way. I was a very sick toddler and my parents didn't give up on trying to find out why their child was so ill. It was a young resident (younger than my parents at the time) who finally diagnosed me with Celiac Disease. I do not remember life with gluten. Celiac has been almost my entire life. Today, I am healthier than I have been in…

  • What the heck is masa harina?

    Mary Frances Pickett
    16 Apr 2014 | 2:06 pm
    This post is going to be about masa harina and how to use it in a gluten free diet. But first I have a story. When we first started traveling full-time we spent several months in the Hill Country northwest of San Antonio. We were in a small town – so small that the grocery store did not even sell fresh meat. Good grocery stores are extremely high on my list of what makes a great RVing location, so I was ready to leave until we found out the local secret. The sole culinary bright spot for miles around was a family run Mexican restaurant where they handmade their corn tortillas. The only…
  • Can I Use Yeast In Gluten Free Bread?

    Mary Frances Pickett
    4 Apr 2014 | 6:56 pm
    I’ve received a few questions about yeast lately, and as I began to type a response to one in Facebook, I decided that it would be just as easy to put the answer into a quick post, so that all of you could benefit. Here’s the first question: I have a question about yeast. Is yeast all the same, whether it’s ‘bread machine yeast’ or otherwise? Also, how is it possible to have yeast in gluten-free breads? What is Yeast? Yeast is a single-celled, microscopic fungus that converts sugar into alcohol or carbon dioxide. It’s basically a little living factory that…
  • Homemade Bone Broth For The Busy GF Mom

    Mary Frances Pickett
    3 Apr 2014 | 5:41 am
    My first year of adult life was lived out in a cozy little apartment, where I alternately studied tax law, read Food & Wine, and indulged in all of the gourmet cooking that I wanted. Memories of my first batch of chicken stock include lifting the lid off of a steaming vat of broth every few minutes – for hours – to check on my precious broth. That same level of intense focus, with no distractions, is simply not achievable these days! If I’m going to make broth (which needs to simmer for 12 – 72 hours) it has to be able to survive on its own while I attend to the…

(If you haven’t gotten a copy of the recipes, just give me your contact info in the sidebar form, and I’ll send one right to you) It seems like a good time to re-publish this article that I wrote last year. I’ve written about why you should weigh your ingredients before, but measuring cups are so ingrained in American cooking, that it does not hurt to revisit the topic. Here then are 5 myths and misconceptions about measuring flour.

    Surin was a favorite lunch place for my colleagues and I at each of the accounting firms that I worked, and the I never had to buy tupperware because we always had plenty of plastic takeout containers from the nights when we got take-out from Surin. In all those years, there is no telling how many orders of Chicken or Tofu panang I ate. It is my move favorite food in the world and I would happily eat it every day. That has now become a very real possibility! I’ve tried to make panang curry at home before and it never quite hit the mark. And I’ve tried panang curry at other Thai…

    Last week, my friend Pam and I went to (by Invitation) a rollout of the new Carrabba's First Taste menu -- it was a cold night, and we were really looking forward to the trip to Macon for the event.  I love this restaurant -- I've eaten there a lot since I've become gluten-free -- they can adapt an enormous about the menu to suite a gluten-free diner. I'm especially fond of the staff at this restaurant -- and after spending an evening with managers Ryan Holmes, Melissa Wood and John Gray and wait staff Lester Gilbert, we both found good reasons to eat there again.

    Back in the fall, I received a sample shipment of Bai5 Antioxidant drinks, including the new Molokai Coconut. I'd been drinking another low-cal antioxidant drink for a while now, and I have to tell you, this blows them out of the water. They sent me a sample of the product, but I love it so much that I have it on automatic refill from Amazon. The Dragonfruit and Blueberry flavors are my most favorite.I was even more thrilled a few weeks ago when I found out that Bai5 is now being sold at Target. I order mine by the case every month from Amazon (it gives me about a drink a day). I've…

  • BLT Deviled Egg Dip Recipe

    Carol Kicinski
    18 Apr 2014 | 11:28 am
    For many of us there is a pretty good possibility of having a lot of hardboiled eggs on hand in a few days. The coloring of hardboiled eggs at Easter to be left for the Easter Bunny to hide is a long standing tradition that dates back to at least the 13th century! I do not believe however that video games and iPads ensconced in Easter baskets dates back that far. I always loved the process of decorating Easter eggs with my boys – we would spread newspapers all over the kitchen table, set out bowls of colorful dyes, crayons, markers, stickers, glue, glitter – you name it, and then the…

    When a craving strikes, what is it you crave? Sweet, salty, creamy, crunchy? Chocolate? For me it can often be all of the above. And these cute little truffle bites don’t disappoint. And they are portion controlled – always a smart thing when a craving strikes! This recipe proves that candy making need not be complicated. If you can chop, stir, and melt things – you can make these candies. These little truffles are simple, nut free (thanks to using Sunbutter), and if you use dairy free chocolate, dairy free too. And let’s not forget, they are so tasty! Next time a sweet, salty,…

    By now you probably know that I am obsessed with turning cocktails into cupcakes. Now I have expanded my obsession to cookies – Strawberry Margarita Cookies to be exact. It is hard to think of anything more fun than a cocktail in a cookie. They make for a lovely, grown-up treat for after dinner or, if you like a little sweet bite, at tea or cocktail time. This cookie is essentially a dressed up, boozy (but not too boozy) French butter cookie with a bit of a Mexican accent. The base is a not-too-sweet cookie with crushed freeze dried strawberries throughout and a salty sweet coating that is…

Growing up I was encouraged to have an experimentive and sophisticated palate. I learned to love octopus, sea urchins, and snails. I dined on sweetbreads, oxtail, and tongue. My parents took us to fancy restaurants in Europe and street carts in Asia. It seems the culinary world was at my feet. With a few exceptions. We were never allowed to have any fun, kid-oriented sugary cereals in our home. We didn’t eat Pop…

In order to compile this list of healthy, gluten-free snack recipes, I combed through the hundreds of grain-free recipes on Elana's Pantry. It was like a walk down memory lane, recalling all of the great snacks that my boys liked to eat... Click on the title to be taken to the full post at www.elanaspantry.com.

  • Book Review: The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook

    25 Mar 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Every week I receive loads of Paleo cookbooks in the mail asking for a review; I wrote my own called Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry which we use in my house on a daily basis. So forgive me if I'm a little jaded when it comes to Paleo cookbooks. However, I received a Paleo cookbook recently that I am absolutely loving and can highly recommend. It's called the The Slim Palate Paleo Cookbook by... Click on the title to be taken to the full post at www.elanaspantry.com.

  • Sunbutter Brownies

    Given the number of requests lately that I've had for gluten-free recipes that are also nut-free, I decided to create a quick and easy brownie recipe made out of sunflower butter. What is sunflower butter? It is similar to almond butter, however it is made of ground sunflower seeds. These Sunbutter Brownies are a cinch to make and a chocolatey delight.

    Gluten-Free on a Shoestring

  • Gluten Free Easter Menu 2014

    Nicole
    18 Apr 2014 | 5:24 am
    Right off the bat, you’ll notice that there are no main dishes on this, my 2014 Gluten Free Easter Menu. That’s because, well, this is really a baking blog. Every once in a while, someone gets *really* mad at me about that. Emotions can run really high on the Internet (why, I honestly have no idea)! But you and I both know that if I started posting a bunch of naturally gluten free cooking recipes, we’d all get pretty bored. Not to mention that some of you would get kind of mad at me for that. And anyway, there are tons of other resources for that (have you seen this brown…
  • Gluten Free Lemon Pudding Cakes

    Nicole
    17 Apr 2014 | 5:18 am
    One lovely reader (hi, Michelle!) asked me to post a recipe for gluten free lemon pudding cakes a year and a day ago (or at least it feels that way!), but not until I pinned a gluteny version to my Must Make Gluten Free Pinterest Board did I actually set about doing it. It’s not that I didn’t want to. It’s not that I didn’t have it on my ever-growing to-do list. It just … that announcing my intentions on that Pinterest board really seems to light a fire. I love it when you “vote” for recipes on there! And I love it when you make recipe suggestions.
  • Gluten Free Angel Biscuits

    Nicole
    16 Apr 2014 | 5:19 am
    I’m thinking that we might want to make some gluten free angel biscuits for Easter this Sunday. It seems … almost like a religious experience. If you’ve ever had trouble making biscuits (or, to be honest, even if you haven’t), then this is the pastry recipe for you. With baking powder, baking soda, and some yeast, they rise like angels. Get it?The temperature situation did pose a bit of a cognitive dissonance in my mind, to be honest. I mean, yeast likes warm, and pastry (like biscuits) needs cold fat (like butter) to expand in the oven. Pastry is really all about…
  • “Neiman Marcus $250″ Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Nicole
    15 Apr 2014 | 5:37 am
     I love a good urban myth. Maybe it’s because I live (very very reluctantly) in the suburbs.But whatever the origin on this recipe, these gluten free chocolate chip cookies are pret-ty delicious. See the flecks of chocolate? There is apparently a fair amount of disagreement about whether those belong in these mythical cookies. I tried them both with, and without. With is definitely superior. And I’m not usually one for packing a chocolate chip cookie with nuts, even though I love nuts, but I have to say that I rather enjoyed the nuts here. And of course, the oat flour is key. It…
  • Native American-Style Gluten Free Fry Bread

    Nicole
    14 Apr 2014 | 5:51 am
    There is a particular conventional flour that is supposedly the secret to the perfectly authentic Native American Fry Bread. Clearly, we can’t use that. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have Native American-Style Gluten Free Fry Bread. Now we’ve been talking about this recipe for a looooooong time here and there on the blog (and on Facebook), and I know that many of you have plenty of experience with fry bread. I hope I’ve done you proud!My family and I ate this, the winningest recipe for gluten free fry bread among the versions that I made, with a light dusting of…

  • Restaurant Review: Cinders Wood Fire Grill (Mine Hill, NJ)

    I had a great all around experience at Cinders Wood Fire Grill (319 Route 46W, Mine Hill, NJ 07803) last night. For starters, Cinders flags the gluten free items on their menu with a small green diamond. There were nine tapas (appetizers), eight entrees, and six sides. There is also a note that any item without the sauce or without bread would be gluten free. Woodgrilled Half Chicken in a

    On a recent day trip to Atlantic City, I decided to stop for dinner at China Sea of Absecon (662 White Horse Pike, Absecon, NJ 08201). It is fairly rare to find a chinese restaurant that has a gluten free menu and even rarer to find one as extensive as theirs. (The full gf menu is on their website.)

    Who knew Sparta was so Celiac friendly? I recently found myself in the Sparta area for lunch and was surprised to find I had a number of restaurants to choose from! I ended up selecting the Bologna Deli and Cafe (8 White Deer Plaza, Sparta, NJ 07871). It is what you'd expect from a deli, with a cold cut display case, and a handful of small tables. What you wouldn't expect is the number of gluten

Gluten Free Burger, Gluten Free Onion Rings, and Gluten Free Fries at Little Shanty in Warren NJ I had heard a rumor that Little Shanty (14 Mt.

    A quirky little vegan cafe! Gluten Free / Dairy Free Big WAC wrap Warning: this review is mostly for my dairy free / vegan followers. PositiviTea does offer a number of gluten free options as well but they are a small tea shop with shared prep space and a shared panini press. They do offer to clean both, but caution that there still may be cross contamination. I've eaten at PositiviTea

  • The Truth about Organic, Gluten-Free Foods

    Katlyn Goeujon-Mackness
    17 Apr 2014 | 8:05 am
    You have probably seen plenty of foods on the supermarket shelves that claim various benefits, “organic” being one, and “gluten-free” being another, but with the higher prices that often accompany them, it can be difficult to know what to buy. To find the best food for you and your family, it is important to know what these terms mean and how they can give you the healthiest bang for your buck. What does “organic” mean? Organic, in food, generally refers to produce that is grown “without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms,…
  • Protein Packed Gluten Free Peanut Butter Sandwich Bread

    Katlyn Goeujon-Mackness
    9 Apr 2014 | 3:30 am
    A tasty twist on sandwich bread, this peanut butter bread is great for making a sweet snack or dessert, and the peanut butter makes bread that is wonderfully fluffy and moist. This recipe is very easy to whip up—a loaf can be made in about an hour—but dangerously tasty. This recipe works great with gluten-free flour. If you can tolerate spelt flour, which is made from spelt and has less gluten in it, then give that a try to replace the gluten free flour mix. If you aren’t severely intolerant of gluten, you may be able to eat it without discomfort. However, if you are unsure of…
  • Making the Perfect Guten-Free Sourdough Bread

    Katlyn Goeujon-Mackness
    3 Apr 2014 | 3:29 am
    A good gluten-free sourdough bread is surprisingly easy to make (and even easier to eat), so that you can enjoy the tangy flavor of sourdough even if you are gluten intolerant. Gluten-free sourdough bread actually has significant health benefits because it is easier to digest than ordinary breads; the proteins are already partially broken down before the bread even hits your digestive system. It also helps keep your blood sugar in check by not causing the spike that other types of bread do. The secret behind the bread’s unique flavor lies in fermenting the flour in a sourdough starter that…
  • You Gotta Try It: Make-Ahead, Flour-Free Gluten-Free Bread

    Katlyn Goeujon-Mackness
    28 Mar 2014 | 3:30 am
      One of the hardest things about making gluten-free bread at home comes from the time that is required to make it. While the actual preparation and baking times aren’t substantial on their own, if you eat a lot of the bread, continuing to bake it as needed can begin to feel like a chore. Thankfully, there is a bread  that is not only totally free of flour, it freezes like a dream so you can bake a few loaves up ahead of time and not have to worry about running out mid-week. In lieu of flour, this recipe uses seeds, nuts and gluten-free rolled oats, making it a delightful and healthy…
  • Easy 8 Ingredient Gluten-Free Lemon Cranberry Muffins

      Lemon cranberry muffins are always a delightful treat with their contrasting flavors of sweet mixed with tangy. In light of upcoming spring, these muffins will surely put you in the mood for some warm sunshine with the fresh, tart sensation that lemon cranberry muffins are known for.  The best part? They are very easy (only 8 ingredients!) and only take about 40 minutes from start to finish. Try these muffins when they are fresh out of the oven for a warm, melty treat, or save them for later. Muffins can keep for up to three days on the counter, five days in the refrigerator, and up…
