Easy Chicken Mushroom Crockpot Ragout

IMG_3831

This dish was a leftover concoction that turned into one of the tastiest dinners ever. So I had to share! It’s somewhere between a stew and a soup. The broth is so incredibly rich and flavorful. I called it a chicken mushroom crockpot ragout for lack of a better name!  Bonus – it is gluten free….

Easy Gluten-Free Apple-Pear Tart

Certain things from the time “before” I was Gluten Free (over a decade ago!) I still miss. Warm apple pie, topped with ice cream, for example. It’s not impossible to find a decent gluten free pie crust. It’s just difficult and involves a lot of driving to multiple stores in search of that one mix/crust…

Gluten, Egg, Soy, Dairy, and Nut Free Suganiyot Donuts

Picture 41

They said it couldn’t be done. Which was my invitation to try. Last night I took my original Gluten free donut recipe and re-calibrated it to make it free of several more allergens, all of which my niece cannot eat. Here are my modifications: I used a flour mix that was mostly Rice flour with…

I Hate My Guts: 10 Things About Being Gluten Free

IMG_3065

This past weekend was a sucker punch. A one two disaster of epic gastric distress proportion. My freak flag flew high. The headline: Girl Gets Served “Gluten Free” Pizza That isn’t Gluten Free. The weekend retreat was promising. But the first night’s restaurant was horrid. After realizing they’d poisoned me, they grabbed the evidence, ran…

Gluten Free Lunch: Parfait Honey!

Here is my third lunchbox selection, using some of the treats that I received from Udi’s Gluten Free. It used to be hard to enjoy a parfait. Finding good Gluten Free Granola was a chore. Now that I have found Udi’s Gluten Free Granola putting together a nice little DIY (healthy) Sundae is easy. This…

Gluten Free Lunch: Turkey Go Fig!

Here’s my second lunch idea using Udi’s Gluten free products. This one was so delicious that it never made it past the plate and into a lunch box. It was consumed on the spot. If I’d packed it up I would have paired it with a bit of cheese (pictured is a mini brie bite…

Gluten Free Lunch: The “Classic”

classicGFlunch

Udi’s Gluten Free recently sent me a box of their products and challenged me to come up with five school lunches using their products as inspiration. While my children are fine with Gluten, I am not. I took on the challenge because I struggle so with eating out, and feeling like I can’t have “regular”…

{Recipe} Easy Gluten Free Coconut Macaroons

I’m not really a foodie. Every time I make a recipe, I feel like I’m conducting an experiment. I’m crossing my fingers and toes that it all ends well. Such has been the case with my many many coconut macaroon experiments. I’ve made them with and without egg white. With and without added starches and…

Gluten Free Passover Matzo? Yes!

As someone who eats gluten free and relatively low carb all year long, I sort of look forward to Passover, that time of year when dietary restrictions don’t keep me from getting my carb on! It’s a largely wheat free holiday, where food is front and center. There are sponge cakes and noodle kugels, macaroons…

Lunch with Kitchen Aid, White on Rice Couple, Cristina Ferrare & Joy The Baker

When Todd Porter and Diane Cu of White on Rice Couple throw a party at their studio, you should move heaven and earth to attend. Trust me, it’s worth it. What a treat to get a peek into their studio, and their creative process. This inspiring couple serves up food for body, mind and soul…
