I had the most amazing bacon last Easter at a local restaurant near the south entrance of Yosemite. It was in Bass Lake at Ducey’s on the Lake. It was the best bacon I have ever had! I never thought that I could reproduce it, but I did! You have to try this gluten free candied bacon! It has so much flavor. It’s a special treat. Continue reading Gluten Free Candied Bacon
If you do not do well with alcohol made from gluten grains such as whiskey, you’ll need to make your own substitute for Baileys Irish Cream. You can make your own Baileys Irish Cream gluten free using gluten free whiskey. If you use heavy whipping cream it’s super rich and creamy. Make it your favorite way. It’s so delicious, I bet you don’t get back to drinking the original whether you can tolerate it or not. Continue reading Baileys Irish Cream Gluten Free Recipe (includes dairy-free options)
Every year around this time, my mom used to make corned beef and cabbage. It wasn’t until recently that I realized it wasn’t named Corn Beef and Cabbage. I didn’t realize the beef was “corned”. The “ed” makes total sense. I’m not alone, though, and either are you if you didn’t know this. There are over 18,000 people each month that search for “gluten free corn beef” via Google.
Meanwhile, this recipe is a classic. You can’t do much wrong other than under cook it. I’ve taken a shortcut, though. Mom made it on the stovetop and I’ve used a slow cooker/crockpot instead. If you’ve never had homemade corned beef and cabbage (it’s available in a can, who knew?), you’re missing out on some deliciousness. If you enjoy bacon, you’ll most likely enjoy corned beef. The one I purchased contain no MSG or nitrates. It’s usually cured with salt and water only. It’s perfect for a weekend or weekday since all you have to do is remove the fat and throw everything in a slow cooker. Corned beef and cabbage is a St. Patrick’s Day tradition. I’ll be enjoying leftovers on March 17! How about you?

Naan is luscious Indian flatbread, similar to a tortilla, but thicker. With one simple alteration, you can roll or pat them out thinner to use as tortillas. The flavor and texture are so good, they should be a sin to eat. By far, this is my most raved about recipe. People liken them to their gluten counterpart. Naan is full of possibilities.
