header-650

The 2012 Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Forum, sponsored by HealthNOW Medical Center will be held this Saturday, October 13th in Palo Alto, CA.  If you live in the area (or are in need of a fall weekend getaway), I cannot recommend this gluten free forum enough.  In fact, it was the 2010 Gluten Sensitivity and […]

Detecting Gluten in Food: The differences between Lateral Flow and ELISA testing

Lab Testing

Last time Heidi was kind enough to have me guest post, we talked a bit about the ways that different antibodies are used to check foods for gluten — and I ruined Where’s Waldo for a few people. Today, I want to talk a bit about the way different tests use those antibodies to check […]

Southwest Grilled Cheese and Bologna Sandwich for National Grilled Cheese Month

Udi's Southwest Grilled Cheese and Bologna Sandwich

There’s nothing like the call of National Grilled Cheese Month to bring a gluten free blogger out of semi-retirement (a.k.a. Little League baseball season)! I was recently challenged to come up with a grilled cheese sandwich recipe featuring Udi’s gluten free bread and Horizon Organic cheese, and I just couldn’t resist. I know what you’re […]

Triumph Dining Gluten Free Guides

If you are new to the gluten free lifestyle, there is a resource that will quickly become your new indispensable best friend…the gluten free guides from Triumph Dining.

All About Gluten Free Waffles

Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake Waffles

There is a great book out there called Men Are Like Waffles–Women Are Like Spaghetti: Understanding and Delighting in Your Differences (which admittedly I have not read but my husband says is hilarious).  Apparently, the book tells us what we already know: that men view most choices and conflicts in terms of “waffle buckets” and […]

All about Gluten Free (Boxed) Cereals

Gluten Free 101

  Nothing brings back fond memories of 1980’s childhood quite like that morning American staple known as “breakfast cereal.”  I’m not sure at what point we co-opted the term “cereal” to basically convey a mostly sugar-laced, artificially colored bowl of glutonium, but the word has found its way into the American lexicon…so be it. The […]

Gluten Free Pancakes: Come One, Come All for National Pancake Day!

Gluten Free Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup

  Okay, so someone (Erin, you know who you are) told me that it was national pancake day today, thus usurping my gluten free waffle groove!  Not being one to disappoint, I dropped everything and went into complete hyper-drive mode, because I KNOW pancakes.  I’m still waiting for the “national don’t eat crappy food” day; […]

New Mexican Burrito Bowls, Gluten Free of Course!

Gluten Free Breakfast Burrito Bowl

Okay, let me first explain the picture you see above.  I know it looks like a big pile of goo covered with melted casein, er, cheese…and to be honest with you, that’s pretty much what it is! The beauty of New Mexican cuisine is that it has developed into a perfect hybrid of traditional Spanish/Mexican […]
