This delicious gluten free sugar cookies recipe is just one example. Once baked, if desired, decorate them using my royal icing recipe. Their yummy. Enjoy!

Tartiflette is a French recipe made of potatoes, bacon and cream similar to au gratin potatoes, which originally did not contain cheese. Tartiflette contains lardon (cubed pork fat), but in the states, it may be easiest to use bacon. That’s why I use. Meanwhile, it is not a dish we can afford to consume on a regular basis, health-wise, but for special occasions or a treat, it is perfect, and so worth the effort.

hile you can serve single stuffed zucchini boats as an appetizer, you can also serve them as a main dish. However, my favorite way to utilize stuffed zucchini boats is to serve them along with some pasta and marinara sauce. Because marinara sauce is meatless, you have the meat and veggies covered with this stuffed sensation! It’s so easy to make. Be sure to read the Tips sections for a variation.

Discover the answer to the question, “Is Fondant Gluten Free?”
Not all fondant brands are gluten free. If you are intolerant to gluten, you may wish to go one step further and find out if the manufacture processes gluten-containing products on the same equipment. One way to be sure your fondant is gluten free is to make your own.

Simply using gluten free marshmallows and confectioners’ sugar, you can make homemade gluten free fondant. Add a little water and food coloring and you’re all set to decorate. You can mold this fondant into any creation you can think up. Get ready, set, start!

If you’ve been wondering about the difference between golden and red quinoa, there is none, other than the color. In this red quinoa salad, I chose the red variety just to add more color. It’s easy to throw together. You don’t even need a recipe, but I did write down everything so you’d have some ideas on what to use. Be sure to rinse your quinoa. It helps make it perfect. Enjoy!
Gluten Free Carrot Cake Recipe

Spiced Gluten Free Carrot Cake Recipe

I really needed a smaller size carrot cake, as my famous Gluten Free Carrot Cake Recipe is a bit too much for us lately. Using a 9-inch round pan versus an 8-inch makes for a lower cake, which fools us psychologically into thinking we’re still having a large piece. The main thing I changed in this new gluten free carrot cake recipe is making a smaller batter and making it moister and spicier. There was a bit too many crumbs on the recipe in the above link. This time, it’s perfect. A matter of fact, it is so good, you don’t even need frosting. It’s plenty of sweet and extremely moist. I used lots of ground cloves which I really enjoy and I think you will, as well. It tastes closer to pumpkin bread. If pumpkin spices are not your cup of tea, omit the cloves. Enjoy!

Homemade Butterscotch Custard

While not all ready-made or boxed pudding brands are gluten free, you can always use naturally gluten free ingredients to make them from scratch. Instead of making gluten free pudding, which contains flour, I prefer custard. There isn’t any floury taste or texture in custard because it does not contain flour. While this may not occur in pudding with wheat flour, it does in gluten free pudding. In addition, gluten free flour creates a bit of slimy texture in pudding (too thick). Custard really is the way to go. Serve this rich butterscotch custard plain or topped with caramel sauce and/or whipped cream. It’s so decadent!

Ricotta Spinach Gluten Free Gnocchi

Tuesday is National Cheese Lover’s Day. So, I thought I would share my latest gluten free recipe with you that contains cheese. It doesn’t contain everyday cheese, but ricotta cheese which looks a lot like cottage cheese, but smaller curds. However, you can use cottage cheese, if you prefer. I used 4% fat cottage cheese and chopped the curds up a little smaller. However, it appears pureeing it in a food processor would make it easier to roll. I also use Parmesan cheese in this recipe. I adapted the the same recipe that I found in this month’s Sunset magazine. However, I use much less Parmesan and of course, gluten free ingredients instead of glutenous all-purpose flour. Meanwhile, you’ll have fun learning how to roll the gnocchi, which is the best way to make them. It leaves a nice sized space in which the sauce gets trapped. When they are rolled, they area also less starchy. Stay tuned in for the video on how to roll gnocchi.

Gluten Free Raisin French Toast

My father is visiting with us and is 100 years old. While he enjoys my newest Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread Recipe, he finally admitted that he doesn’t appreciate the harder crust which is a result of long baking in my bread machine. He’s always enjoyed soft food, but as he ages, soft food is a requirement. He’s never even care for his bread toasted, just warmed, not brown or golden. So, I thought I would soften the ends by making him French toast this morning instead of dry toast and his awful cream of wheat (he’s not gluten free). The acidic fruit has been getting to him anyway.

To speed up the process I soaked the bread overnight. This way it was all set to fry up in the morning. Caring for an elderly parent is a lot of work and mornings are pretty busy. A hearty breakfast is crucial as this is when they have their largest appetite.
