“Go Away Flu” chicken and rice (and heart-shaped carrot) soup






On Monday evening, my little gluten-girl woke up complaining of just not feeling well.  She’d been a bit feverish that day, and had been coughing off and on.  She’s asthmatic, and fairly susceptible to respiratory infections; I gave her some Tylenol and after staying up an extra hour (to make sure she was feeling better), … Continue reading »

Light, fluffy, delicious yellow/butter cake






I tried something yesterday that I had been putting off for some time.  I made my favorite cake.  It was the first time I had attempted a gluten-free yellow cake, and I was really craving the comfort of a yellow cake with chocolate frosting.  It was my favorite cake growing up, and I’d given it … Continue reading »

Gluten-Free Cheesecake – Pecan Crust






My homemade cheesecakes have always had crushed graham-cracker crusts.  When a fellow gluten-free gal asked if there was any chance I could make her a GF birthday cheesecake, I embraced the challenge!  Because I’m cheap, I didn’t want to purcahse GF graham crackers.  (For starters, the best I’ve found come from a bakery in Colorado … Continue reading »

Gluten-Free Cheese Crackers






I like to make homemade crackers.  I liked to make them before we went gluten-free.  I even took a cracker making course, once.  This, coupled with my obsession for Cheez-Its (and the disappointing fact that there really is not a good GF Cheez-It substitute on the market that *I* have found) led me to begin … Continue reading »

GF Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (almond and coconut flours)






When we began the gluten-free diet, I browsed the Bob’s Red Mill website and checked out all the gluten-free flours available.  Two kept catching my eye – almond and coconut.  I ordered some, along with the other basic flours (rice, potato, sorghum, etc).  I was SO excited when they arrived and couldn’t wait to begin … Continue reading »

Gluten Free “Crustless” Quiche






We are big quiche fans over here, and when we first transitioned to gluten-free eating, I simply made quiche with no crust at all.  That was fine and dandy, but in time I discovered that a pie plate lined with shredded potato was even better than a truly crust-free quiche. Ingredients: 1-2 large russet potatoes, … Continue reading »
