While McDonald’s shamrock shake is gluten-free, you can also make them at home. Instead of using vanilla ice cream, green food coloring, and chocolate syrup, I took a shortcut, making it that much easier! Continue reading Easy Gluten Free Shamrock Shake Recipe
This recipe for gluten free St. Patrick’s Day cookies is incredible! They’re in between a shortbread and sugar cookie. Shortbread cookies contain more butter than sugar cookies which makes them a bit softer and richer. Everyone loves these cookies. Adding a little green or Irish theme makes them that more special.
Also, be sure to read my article on Gluten Free Food Coloring at the below link. If you’re dairy-free, be sure to see my suggestions on how to make gluten free cookies to your liking using Earth Balance in the Cut-Out Cookie recipe. In addition, I have added a substitute for gluten-free meringue powder in my Royal Icing recipe. Enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day and be safe! Continue reading Gluten Free St. Patrick’s Day Cookies
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?
