GFCF (Dye Free) Cake Pops

GFCF (Dye Free) Cake Pops

I always have my eye out for creative holiday GFCF treats. There are so many food items that my son cannot have that I strive to make the most of what he can have. After seeing an infomercial for a cake pop pan and an advertisement for vegan white chocolate chips, I thought I’d give this GFCF cake pop idea a try. For the cake batter, I used Pure Pantry’s chocolate cake mix. I’ve never used Pure Pantry so I was curious about it. I followed the directions on the bag and I can’t believe how beautiful the cake balls turned out. They were perfect and there was no batter...

OMGoodness – Jules Thin Crust Pizza – Restaurant Review

OMGoodness – Jules Thin Crust Pizza – Restaurant Review

Jules Thin Crust pizza in Danville (located in the Livery) is our favorite gluten free pizza place. I love everything about this pizzeria experience. It has a clean modern decor with a nice dining area. They use green products to clean the tables and have recycle and compost waste options. The staff is always friendly and Heather, the owner, treats you like a good friend when you arrive…. Their pizza topping options are some of the most unique I’ve ever seen. My favorite is Meat Pie #4, “Kim’s pie,” with Hormone-free roasted chicken, portobello mushroom,...

Cinnamon Donut Muffins – Recipe Review

Cinnamon Donut Muffins – Recipe Review

Cinnamon Donut Muffins- Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free Back in my “gluten days” I used to make scrumptious mini cinnamon muffins on an occasional Sunday morning for brunch. They were great to take to family gatherings. Stuffed in a cute basket with a pretty napkin, guests would gobble them up. I made them in a mini muffin pan so they were easy to pop in the mouth and had a wonderful cinnamon toast flavor to them. After going gluten and dairy free (GFCF), I often thought about these muffins and missed having the option to make them. Well, you can imagine my...

Gluten Free Pasta Class with Jeff Larsen

Gluten Free Pasta Class with Jeff Larsen

Two of our GFCF support group members and I took a road trip recently to San Francisco for a gluten free pasta class by Jeff Larsen. We had an awesome time and were able to not only learn to make and taste great gluten free pasta, but we were treated to samples of warm bread from the previous bread making class. He offered soy free Earth Balance spread, Earth Balance coconut spread and some yummy jams to spread on our delicious GF bread. It was amazing. The bread had a wonderful texture and aroma. I’m definitely going back for the bread making class.   Jeff took us step by step...

Juice and Java Express – Restaurant Review

Juice and Java Express – Restaurant Review

I was delighted to find this little cafe right in the heart of Farmer’s Market in Downtown Pleasanton on W. Angela St. Not only do they serve organic coffee and tea in a quaint and cozy atmosphere but they have a whole menu of juice blends and smoothies with exotic names like Dragonfly, Green Isle, Love Birds, Beet Me Up (my personal favorite) and Fresh As A Cucumber. Their wide selection of fruits and vegetables are organic, when possible, and they offer several non-dairy boosts (flax seed, pumpkin seed and vit C) as well as a nice selection of organic non-dairy milks (almond,...
