Gluten Free | Carrot Cake | Dairy Free Cream Cheese

Really yummy gluten-free carrot cake!                       The cake started to lean to the side after sitting at room temperature. If you want to do a “layer” type cake as seen here, I suggest you keep the cake refrigerated at all times.  You can also do a sheet cake or cupcakes to avoid this problem. Tofutti brand cream cheese contains soy but would yield a firmer cream cheese frosting that may be less likely to cause the layers to slide.

St. Pattys Day | Gluten Free Hot Cross Buns | Shamrock Soup

St. Pattys Day | Gluten Free Hot Cross Buns | Shamrock Soup

Have you found it challenging to celebrate various holidays now that you are gluten free? Before changing my family’s diet, I enjoyed making holiday themed meals such as corned beef and cabbage or Irish Soda Bread for St Patrick’s Day. Who doesn’t enjoy a nice cold green beer on St Patrick’s Day, right? It’s fun. We also loved to indulge in hot cross buns right before Good Friday. Thank goodness it’s getting easier and easier to enjoy these foods in a gluten-free version.  For baked goods, I love Gluten-Free on a Shoe String (GFSS) blog. As a matter of...

Everyday Classics | Gluten Free Cookbook | Review and Giveaway

Everyday Classics | Gluten Free Cookbook | Review and Giveaway

This is my dream cookbook…gluten, dairy, egg, soy-free and…family oriented. I am so excited to review this cookbook. I have been following Lexie’s Kitchen for some time now and am thrilled to say, I love her new cookbook. My family has already asked for the chicken and rice casserole again. I was hoping it would last for two meals and it did not (I’ll have to double the recipe next time). I decided to try the following recipes: Chicken Pot Pie, Chicken and Rice Casserole, Whipped Coconut Cream, Chocolate Pudding and, for the holidays, the Spritz Cookies. Chicken pot...

Gluten Free | Roast Beef | Yorkshire Pudding

Gluten Free | Roast Beef | Yorkshire Pudding

  Many years ago when my older children (now 20 and 21 years old) were young, another parent told me their tradition of preparing and sharing a meal at least once a year that honored their family heritage. Since my children are not too familiar with their deeper roots as we are true blooded Americans (a mix of multiple ethnicities), I had to research the most common genetic thread. The one that I have found common on both sides of my children’s ancestry is English. My fifth generation grand father, Richard Pounder (later changed to Pounders), is believed to have landed in the Baltimore...

Candy Cane Cake Pops | Gluten Free | Dairy Free | Dye Free

Candy Cane Cake Pops | Gluten Free | Dairy Free | Dye Free

I love making cake pops for gifts. Kids love them and they are super easy to make. I posted about Easter cake pops in 2012 which I made for Sammy’s preschool class. They were a big hit. For Christmas this year, I decided to make cake pops again but with a holiday twist…sprinkled with crushed dye-free candy cane. To start, I used Sammy’s favorite cake mix, King Arthur Flour (featured above). It’s gluten, dairy, soy and nut-free. Be sure to let the cake pops cool completely before dipping them in chocolate. The chocolate can be easily melted in the microwave. Just heat...

Easy Holiday Appetizers | Gluten Free

After I became gluten and dairy-free, I dreaded having to take food to parties. I wanted to take something everyone would enjoy and not shun because it was GF. Prior to my GF lifestyle, most of my dishes I liked to share were drenched in wheat and cow’s milk. It took some thinking out of the box but I was able to throw together some tasty dishes together that were enjoyed by all. I’ve featured here some super easy to prepare appetizers. The first is one of my favorites. You can either take prepared bread slices like these below offered by Mariposa Bakery in Oakland and San...
