    I'm wanting some ideas, because it seems that I often get into a rut and bring boring personal food for potlucks. When I say "food for potlucks," I mean personal food to eat while others are eating off a buffet. So if you have potlucks that you go to, what interesting things do you come up with to bring for yourself?   I have a 4 cup size glass dish with a snap down lip that is great for portable foods. So pretty much I can make something up at home, then pop it in the microwave at potluck location and sit and eat my safe food while I visit with people.    I was thinking about…

    We re-joined Costco earlier this year after learning about a number of gluten-free products that we buy, and keep as staples in the house, were available at much lower prices. The money we have saved since joining has more than paid for our membership. The main gluten-free staple I purchase at Costco is Udi’s Gluten-Free Whole Grain Bread. This bread is the commercial size loaf, so it is almost double in size (width and length of loaf) when compared to their standard gluten-free loaf. When I ran into Costco last week to pick up Jon’s new glasses and contacts, I ran over to the frozen…

The food is pretty good for being gluten-free and there are a lot of choices.  The best part, by far, is the speed of getting your meal/food. One hour before I eat, I call the dining hall and place an order for there (sit-down) or to-go.

This means Josh, founder of GFreek.com, and I have "known" each other for a half of a decade. We've emailed, spoken on the phone, and met in person once. He has been a great advocate for our community and it is amazing to see how the awards have grown. In the past five years, Josh has also published the Original Gluten-Free Buyers guide. This awesome resource helps you navigate the grocery store aisles when looking for the…

  • Celiac Disease and Depression

    14 Aug 2014 | 7:00 am
    The news of Robin Williams's passing has brought the topic of depression front and center this week. Clearly Robin Williams suffered greatly and my heart goes out to his family and to his troubled soul. Depression is something that not many will openly talk about with anyone. It is uncomfortable to talk about it because many people are embarrassed and see depression as a weakness. Depression needs to be discussed, NOW, for tomorrow may be too late.There is a link between Celiac Disease and Depression which is why I wanted to post about this today. I am not an expert but there are…
  • FDA Says: 'Gluten-Free' Now Means What It Says

    13 Aug 2014 | 9:02 am
    I am back on the grid after a much-needed family vacation and tech hiatus. While I was gone, the FDA gluten-free labeling regulations went into effect. This is a huge milestone for our community. I highly recommend you read thew new regulations and also encourage you to subscribe to the FDA consumer updates. This will alert you about any mislabeled gluten-free products or recalls. You can also learn how to file a complaint about any companies that might be mis-using or abusing the gluten-free terms on their labels.For all of the FDA gluten-free information, please click here.

Then I have to wonder if it is gall bladder flare up or what the heck is going on. Frustrating when I try to eliminate foods that I feel are not my inside's friends and then still can't seem to lose weight or feel the best I can feel. Just venting...not so down in the dumps I will go on strike and not eat or eat anything and everything because who cares, it doesn't matter. Just…

    When I first started blogging it felt necessary.  I was providing a service and helping those who felt as frustrated as I did trying to find tasty gluten-free food replacements, safe gluten-free restaurants and delicious gluten-free recipes.  Over the last few years my life got busier (I started a gluten-free ice cream company), and eating gluten-free just became generally easier.  More people know what gluten-free is – no one looks at me like I have two heads anymore when I say that I can’t eat gluten.  The number of great gluten-free products has vastly increased.  Now, as…

    BaconFest came and went last year without even a post from me. Such delinquency I hope to remedy by providing you with the recipe for one of the winning dishes. People really stepped up their game this time. Dishes like bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with blue cheese and almonds that had people swooning in years past, barely made any waves because there were so many other amazing and interesting foods on hand. These cheese puffs tied for first place with some Luca & Bosco Ice Cream creations (a venture I already mentioned here). Since I can’t share our ice cream recipes, these cheese…

    Hello dear readers. I haven’t forgotten about you. I have been working on a very exciting ice cream project. My business partner and I are launching a new ice cream brand called “Luca and Bosco” (named after our adorable puppies). Why is that relevant to you? Because everything we make is going to be gluten-free – the ice cream, the cones, the toppings, the cookies and even little ice cream cone shaped dog biscuits will be made completely gluten-free. This weekend I made a chocolate and beer ice cream using Bard’s Tale gluten-free beer for St. Patrick’s Day. My business…

    After interrupting my Chicago write-ups to relate the magical tale of my El Bulli experience, we return to our Midwest eating adventure with the main course – Alinea. Currently ranked the top restaurant in the United States by Restaurant Magazine, Alinea had some high expectations to live up to. Did it? Yes and No. In ‘preparation’ for our trip to Chicago, I read “Life, on the Line” by Alinea’s Chef Grant Achatz and his business partner Nick Kokonas. A recommended read that grabs your interest, maintains it throughout and concomitantly creates great expectations about eating at…

    Touted as the world’s best restaurant, El Bulli, located in Roses, Spain, shuttered its doors on Sunday. It was indisputably, the toughest reservation to obtain at any restaurant, with over a million requests for tables each year. International renown surrounding El Bulli is such that even the media coverage on it is getting media coverage – see the mocking and derision from the NYTimes, The UK Guardian, and from Salon.com. Well, I’m afraid I am going to add to the plethora of blog coverage and write ups. Why write about a shuttered restaurant? It’s about recollections of a dining…

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.

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…

I would put on my most angelic face, run to my mom and beg for a couple of quarters to get my favorite frosty treat – an ice cream sandwich. After promising to clean my room or take out the trash or whatever other chore my mom could negotiate for the price of an ice cream sandwich, I would run out to the street with my quarters in my hot little hand and gather with all the other kids –excited as could be.

Then I come up with other ways to enjoy the bounty. This Peach Tart, free of gluten, dairy, and grains, is one of the ways I enjoy peaches. The cake itself is not too sweet, letting the sweetness of the peaches really shine. And it is dead simple to make – a little whisking,…

    This basic meatball recipe is easy to make. No frying! Flavored with shallot, tomato paste and a hint of Dijon mustard, these simple meatballs are incredibly tasty. My boys and their friends love them! Meatballs are also a great make ahead dinner dish. Often, when I have a busy day, I’ll make these meatballs the night before, let them cool, and refrigerate them. The next evening, I throw... Click on the title to be taken to the full post at www.elanaspantry.com.

    Paleo Peach Crisp is made with only six ingredients: peaches, almond flour, salt, butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. This healthy gluten-free crisp is another one of my easy-to-make Paleo recipes that has even less added sweetener than usual. The entire recipe has one tablespoon of maple syrup. Better yet? My boys and their friends devoured it last night. If you make this healthy dessert recipe... Click on the title to be taken to the full post at www.elanaspantry.com.

    I’ve followed a strict grain-free diet since 2001. Still, I eat pasta every week. How’s that possible? Zucchini noodles, otherwise known as zoodles. There’s nothing like spaghetti with meatballs, or Bolognese sauce. When you know how to make zucchini noodles, there’s no need to be deprived of such classic dishes!

    15 Aug 2014 | 3:15 am
    Have you ever wondered how to make lemonade? It seems like such a simple thing. Until you actually try to do it. Making lemonade from scratch is fantastic for a bunch of reasons. First, it tastes incredible. There’s nothing like freshly squeezed juice from real lemons. Making your own also allows you to avoid the nasty chemicals and preservatives in store bought lemonade. However, the... Click on the title to be taken to the full post at www.elanaspantry.com. Please note: This email was sent from a notification-only address that cannot accept incoming email.

    Gluten-Free on a Shoestring

  • Gluten Free Cornmeal & Cheese Drop Biscuits

    Nicole
    28 Aug 2014 | 6:35 am
    Anyone who has taken even a passing glance at the biscuit recipes in Chapter 8 (Yeast-Free Quick Breads) in Gluten Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread (or, for that matter, at all the ways we have used biscuit dough here on the blog hello Biscuit Donuts) knows that I have a deep and abiding fondness not only for biscuit dough, but for folding it and “turning” it like puff pastry. But every once in a while, you really need some biscuits in a hurry (“need” being a relative term here, I realize). Enter gluten free cornmeal drop biscuits. These are heartier than your…
  • Gluten Free Cowboy Cookies

    27 Aug 2014 | 6:39 am
    I’m no cowboy, and frankly I was always kind of neutral about Laura Bush, but these are some seriously good cookies. I wonder if she “invented” cowboy cookies (and clearly, Tipper Gore didn’t stand a chance with her gingersnap cookies, since a cookie with mix-ins beats a straight-up cutout cookie with no frosting, no nothing, any day of the week). I’m choosing to avoid the whole idea that the Family Circle Magazine in election year 2000 held a cookie bake-off between the presidential candidates’ wives, Tipper Gore and Laura Bush suggested a certain wifely…
  • Gluten Free Biscuit Chicken Pot Pies To Go

    Nicole
    25 Aug 2014 | 7:24 am
    Once the school year starts (which for us won’t happen for another week and a half, believe it or not), like every other family with young school-age kids, we hit the ground running. Sometimes literally! That means breakfast on the run, sometimes (hello no-bake granola bars!) and some nights even dinner in the car—at least for one of my three kids. So I’m always looking for complete handheld meals that they can eat in the backseat. Sitting down for a meal together is absolutely the ideal, and it happens quite often, but sometimes? You gotta do what you gotta do. No guilt.
  • Gluten Free Zucchini Flour Tortillas

    Nicole
    21 Aug 2014 | 6:44 am
    These tortillas are just like the Gluten Free Flour Tortillas on page 203 of Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread (reprinted here on the blog). Except that they’re green. Before you turn the virtual web page, hear me out! Even though eating your “greens” can seem to be a sort of punishment for some, what if your “greens” were just as good for you, but didn’t taste green (despite looking green)? And what if this were just.one.more.way. to use up that summer zucchini. Have I hit you over the head too hard with gluten free zucchini recipes yet? I blame…
  • No Bake Gluten Free Granola Bars

    Nicole
    20 Aug 2014 | 6:10 am
    I know. It can be kind of difficult to get too excited about a granola bar recipe. So you’ll forgive me if I trot out the old saw: these are different! And anyway you can trust me when I say that because it’s not like everything we make around here is meant to be “different.” In fact, lots and lots of the recipes that we make are designed to be exactly the same. The same as you remember, before you went gluten free. For crying out loud, I’m in the middle of writing a whole cookbook about recipes that are exactly the same as you remember. See? (By the way I…

  • No Cook Tomato Free Ketchup

    Jason
    31 Aug 2014 | 7:35 pm
    I've been working on a tomato free ketchup for about a year now. I tried to base this on my tomato free sauce but it was a lot more work and wasn't quite as good as this one. I loosely based this on a couple of other recipes I found that contained pears, carrots and cranberry sauce. Pears have a gritty texture that remained in the final ketchup.

    Jason
    6 May 2014 | 10:18 am
    Penne alla vodka (or penne a la vodka if you prefer) is the trifecta of food intolerances for me: it's main ingredients are gluten, dairy, and tomato. I had tried making it years ago (when I was just gluten and dairy free) but I used soy milk. Soy milk has a very distinct flavor that is difficult to hide in any dish and my dairy free penne alla vodka was no exception. Dairy free Penne alla

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

  • 10 Gluten-Free Thickening Agents Perfect for Baking, Soups and Sauces

    23 Jul 2014 | 3:24 am
      When you are living a gluten-free lifestyle, it can be a never-ending battle to find ways to get your food to taste…well…normal. And when you want to make gravy, a fruit pie, or a sauce, part of making it taste “normal” is choosing the right gluten-free thickener, and knowing how to use it. Fortunately, you have a variety of gluten-free thickeners to choose from. Cornstarch. Even cooks who aren’t gluten free probably have a box of this staple in their pantry. Cornstarch is great for sauces and gravies, and it also gives baked goods structure and a soft texture.
  • How to Grind Your Own Gluten-Free Flour

    Chrissy Lane
    1 Jul 2014 | 5:31 am
      Whether you are gluten free because you have health issues or because you feel it is best for your health in the long run, it is a big change, and one that can get expensive! One of the biggest expenses can be flour. Depending on where you shop, gluten-free flour can cost $3-4 a pound (or more). To make it worse, when baking, you often need more than one kind of flour, which can get even more expensive and put you off of baking forever! A way to reduce this cost is to grind your own gluten-free flour, and it’s not as expensive, hard, or time-consuming as you might think.  …

    If your dad is gluten free, one way to ensure he has a bad Father’s Day is to make him a dinner or give him a gift that has gluten in it! Sometimes gluten hides in foods you might not even think about. Here are a few things to be aware of if you’re making a gluten-free meal or looking for a gift for your father for Father’s Day…   For some that are dedicated to the art of barbecuing, liquid smoke is a must have.

For instance, how about delicious and nutritious chocolate avocado muffins? Yes, that said “avocado,” and it also said “chocolate.” It’s a great way to use up avocados that are getting a bit mushy, and they will also add moisture to your muffins. They are also a great way to add some nutrition to your day—avocados are good for the heart, help to prevent inflammation in those who suffer…
