How to Cook Gluten Free by Elizabeth Barbone (with a Giveaway!)

How to Cook Gluten-Free I was recently given the opportunity to try one of the recipes from Elizabeth Barbone’s new cookbook, How to Cook Gluten-Free: Over 150 Recipes That Really Work, and so I thought I would share a sneak peek with you all. 😀 In case you haven’t heard of Elizabeth Barbone, here’s what […]

All About Gluten Free 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 […]

Gluten Free Support Groups, Menu Plans (and a tiny rant)

  Before sharing this week’s gluten free menu plan, I want to share an exciting new feature over at Gluten Free Easily.  The GFE Virtual Gluten Free Support Group! I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am that Shirley is opening up her home (virtually of course) and allowing all of us […]

Gluten Free St. Patrick’s Day Fun and a Recipe for Shamrock Smoothies

  St. Patrick’s Day has always been a fun holiday for me, everything from pinching the poor hapless soul who doesn’t wear green (or orange!) to chugging more than my fair share of green beer back in college. Funny, I can’t seem to recall partaking in any other tradition for St. Patty’s day. Must have […]

Gluten Free Menu Plan – Week of March 4

  Can you believe it’s already March?  The weather is warming up here in the high desert and lucky me got to spend the afternoon basking in the gloriously warm rays of the New Mexico sun.  It’s days like today that make me happy I left the grey, sunless Ohio skies of my youth – […]

All about Gluten Free (Boxed) Cereals

  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 Menu Plan – Week of February 27

  Okay, so I have realized that I can’t plow out all of the gluten-free 101 posts in a month.  I really didn’t think this series through back when I first made the announcement in early February.  I kinda forgot that baseball season was right around the corner and that I would have not one, […]

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

  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!

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 […]

Gluten Free Menu Plan – Week of February 13

Mike and I have been having so much fun this week, coming together and reliving those crazy first few years of our ever-evolving gluten free life for our new Gluten Free 101 series.  Hindsight is always 20/20, no? Quite frankly, it has been refreshing to see him realize the difference between “cooking for the family” […]
