RECIPES:

Fruit Creme Brulee with Sweet Wine

Sabayon is French for a light, whipped custard containing sweet wine or champagne. In Italian it is called zabaione. You can become extremely creative with this dessert. I added some caramelized fruit and topped it creme brulee style. You can use fresh fruit, but when not in season, canned peaches will do or a little pie filling. Below, I have shared the recipe as well as the different sweet sparkling wines you can use in this naturally gluten free sabayon creme brulee. It's a perfect dessert to serve to those who are gluten-free when you're not, as it doesn't call for any special ingredients.

Gluten Free French Toast and Fruit

I've been craving French toast, and realized that I do not have a traditional gluten free French toast recipe on this site. I have a savory version and a make-ahead casserole version that I created using Udi's bread. However, this time, I used my homemade gluten free oat bread recipe. It's our favorite in our house. I hope you enjoy this recipe. It's a higher in protein than most French toast you'll find in restaurants.

Gluten Free Hermit Cookies with Raisins, Dates & Nuts

Butter and brown sugar make these cookies chewy and moist. Hermit cookies are so named because they can be stored for long periods due to their moisture level. They are packed with raisins, dates, and nuts, which adds to their chewiness and texture. Can you imagine what they'd taste like? Get ready, start baking gluten free hermit cookies!

Gluten Free Chocolate Biscotti with Hazelnuts

I love these gluten free biscotti because they are moist. You can also make them dryer, if that is what you prefer. I've including baking instructions for both. However, they are not so dry that you have to have something to drink nearby. I like my biscotti closer to shortbread cookies, with just a little less butter. I think you'll fall in love with these biscotti. Please leave me feedback once you've made them in a below comment. Enjoy!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pasta

lThis is a kid-friendly, pumpkin sauce. It may appeal to them because it looks similar to macaroni and cheese. However, when the realize that it is not, they'll hit the sweetness of the pumpkin and be just as happy. For more savory, adult version, see the Tips section. Both are delicious as the roasting process brings creates a caramelized pumpkin flavor.

Gluten Free Chinese Noodle Salad

Have you ever heard of Chinese rice noodles? They're different than gluten free rice pasta, but you can easily substitute them for whatever you can find locally. I've added some to this fresh and crisp gluten free Chinese salad. The dressing is tasty, as well.

Homemade Gluten Free Mayonnaise

I discovered how to make mayonnaise much faster than traditional methods. I've tried using a high-powered mixer and food processor in the past, but they are extremely slow compared to this method. Using an immersion blender is the key! There are infinite variation possibilities. See the "Tips" section for suggestions.

Child Afraid to Eat Gluten Free Food

Do you have a young child or teenager that is fighting you on staying on a gluten-free diet, or doesn't even want to try it? When it's not their idea, sometimes they need coaxing to get them onboard. Below I include an easy step-by-step plan that I created for you to follow. It's nothing more than a sales technique, in this case, a diet. Good luck and let me know how it goes by posting a comment at the bottom of the page.
