Dear reader,

Don't wait the last minute to prepare your Easter menu. Planning now will allow you to shop or order ingredients in advance.

I usually shop online for unique gluten free ingredients either at Vitacost.com or Amazon.com. However, most of the ingredients in these recipes can be found at your local grocery store or Whole Foods Market.

I hope you enjoy these recipes, and if you have a special request, please let me know. I'll try to fit it in by Easter.

Members have immediate access to these recipes. If you're not yet a member, read the bottom of this email to gain access today at 10% off for a limted time.

 

Happy and healthy gluten-free cooking!

Braided Gluten Free Easter Bread Dough

It is an Italian tradition to make an Easter bread, which is usually on the sweet side. This gluten free Easter bread recipe is slightly sweet, but not very. Feel free to add additional sugar, if desired. I provide you with the instructions on how to color your eggs using simple food coloring to the choices of braiding or twisting the dough. Make one large loaf to use as a center piece, or make mini versions for several tables, if you have a large group to feed. Either way, I hope you and your family enjoy this festive treat! I hope you all have a wonderful Easter!

Note: Readers who have tried up to 11 years to duplicate their family's recipe rave about this bread!

Whole Grain Gluten Free Dinner Rolls

While these rolls are a little hearty, they are extremely flavorful. They’re a healthier choice and satisfying. Three small balls of dough form into a lovely showcase of rolls that easily hold butter, peanut butter, or jam.

Image: Gluten Free Meringue Cake - Pavlova

Pavlova is an Australian and New Zealand dessert that it is made primarily with egg whites. It is a naturally gluten free meringue cake, has a delicate, crisp crust on the outside, and a soft marshmallow texture inside, created by the addition of vinegar. You may top the meringue cake with sweetened whipped cream, a mixture of whipped cream and yogurt, or a Bavarian cream, which is a mixture of whipped cream and custard (my favorite). Then add your favorite fruit. To color the whipped topping, use either a natural food coloring or flavored yogurt. Enjoy!

Image: Soft Gluten Free Dinner Rolls

I had put off developing a soft gluten free dinner rolls recipe, for too long. So, I made it a priority, and I am so glad that I did! I am not a big bread eater, but I just cannot stop myself with these rolls! They are not grainy at all. They are something my husband loves during the holiday, and I was certainly not going to make him rolls with gluten! When he got home he gobbled up many. Since they're so easy to make, I'll have to make another batch of this super-soft gluten free dinner rolls! Enjoy!

Gluten Free Cupcakes

Why not use one of these gluten free cake recipes and make gluten free cupcakes for Easter. They are wonderful for large groups, and can easily be frozen and then defrosted for frosting. Whatever your delight is, I'm sure you'll find below, something that tempts your palate. Decorate in color! Add a little food coloring to the below fluffy white frosting, and perhaps use a little less fat (shortening or butter) to stiffen it up a bit or leave it fluffy. You can even add food coloring to homemade whipped cream. I like enjoy using natural food coloring made by Seelect Tea. You can find them online.

Image: Gluten Free Glazed Ham

If you've tried other gluten free recipes for glazed ham and were not satisfied, you may find this gluten free ham glaze recipe just up your alley. It is a bit different than others, as it contains apple cider vinegar for a slightly tangier zing. However, it contains plenty of honey for sweetness, and a tab of butter to brown your ham well. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter holiday! ~ Carla
