Pineapple curd is my go-to filling when I want lemon curd, due to my citrus allergy. It’s delicious and compliments coconut extremely well as they are both tropical. Use this pineapple curd in cakes, cupcakes, pies, tarts, cookies, and more. As you can see in the photo, pineapple also makes a great topping for pancakes. Continue reading Gluten Free Pineapple Curd

You will find recipes calling for flour in pastry cream. However, it creates a sandy, almost powdery texture. There is an easy workaround for this problem, which creates an amazingly smooth texture. Use pastry cream to fill pastries, Boston cream pie, and other desserts.
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?
