Red Quinoa Stir-Fry

    Quinoa is one of my favorite grains, and a delight that I may have never discovered had I not gone gluten-free.  It is very nutritious, high in protein (it has all 8 of the essential amino acids), and easily digestible.  Not to mention that is is quite tasty as well, and very versatile. […]

Gluten-Free Steel-Cut Oatmeal Molasses Raisin Cookies

  I was recently pleased to discover Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free, steel-cut oats in my supermarket.  Certified gluten-free, these steel-cut oats are protected from the common occurrence of cross-contamination with wheat during the production process.  Most people with gluten intolerance can easily tolerate certified gluten-free oats (although a very small minority do react). How exciting […]

How to Make Gluten-Free, Yeast-Free Sourdough Bread From Scratch (from a starter)

  In an attempt to cut my grocery bill, I decided that this week instead of paying $9 for a loaf of Grindstone Bakery gluten-free, yeast-free bread (which I love!), I would try to make my own.  I usually react to packaged active dry yeast, but I don’t react to the Grindstone bread, which does […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pie

  Since we are going out of town for Thanksgiving, I decided to make my pumpkin pie a week early.  I have been making this pie for three years in a row now, since it is the best-tasting gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free pumpkin pie recipe I have found.  I’ve served it to family members who are unable […]

Vodka Mojito (And A Word On Alcoholic Beverages)

  When we talk about food allergies or gluten or dairy intolerance, our focus is primarily on the solid foods we put into our bodies.  When we talk of beverages, we talk of milk, juices, coffee, soda & high-fructose corn syrup.  But what about alcoholic beverages?  If you are truly health-conscious, then you probably know you are better […]

Stuffed Green Peppers

  My diet as a child left much to be desired.  I grew up in the Midwest in a little German town, and needless to say, meat and potatoes were the basic staple of our diet.   My mother’s pot roasts (or any meat she prepared for that matter) were always dry and over-cooked, probably because […]

Quinoa-Cornmeal Pancakes

Quinoa-Cornmeal Pancakes Another pancake recipe!  One can never have too many gluten-free pancake recipes.  This one I have adapted from the recipe on the bag of Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flour.  I use quinoa flakes instead of oats (which can contain traces of wheat and therefore gluten), and substitute soy milk or rice milk for the […]

Blueberry Amaranth Pancakes

  Who says breakfast is the most difficult meal for the gluten-intolerant?  Granted, I don’t always have time to cook in the morning, but on those days that I do, I enjoy creating a delicious, healthy, nutritious breakfast more than any other meal.  Pancakes were always my favorite breakfast when I was a kid, and […]

Double Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Okay, we all have those times when we have a seemingly unsatiable craving for the old foods. I can’t tell you how many times I walk past a pizza parlor or a bakery and swoon from the aroma of fresh-baked bread. Though I have to say, the strongest cravings I’ve ever had were for sweets. […]
