Gluten free on the road


We’re coming to the end of our road trip and I can honestly say it’s been a challenge.   Anything I don’t make with my own hands is questionable.   Thank goodness for my electric cooler and IBgard.  Road trips make me extremely anxious about getting glutened.  I try to plan ahead, but when you’re…

Easy, creamy, gluten and dairy free mac and cheese


  If you have been dairy free for any length of time, like I have, you really miss all things gooey and cheesy. I have had a lot of success cooking with dairy free cheese. specifically Daiya.  I think it melts so much better than soy cheese.  But could it stand up to the mac…

Review of King Arthur Gluten free Scone mix


  If you have been following or reading my blog for any length of time, you know of my epic failures at making biscuits: Epic fail #1 Epic fail #2 I decided that making scones, especially from a mix, might have a better result.  King Arthur mixes are pretty reliable, so I ordered a box…

Of Chickpeas, chocolate and dessert


  There is no doubt chickpeas are healthy.  But I don’t really care for them as they are.  I’ve never been a big fan of beans in general, unless they are of the baked variety. I have often seen recipes using beans instead of flour in desserts.  But I never thought these recipes would work;…

Gluten free Cornbread sausage stuffing


  I have written before about this stuffing in other posts, but I have not actually done a dedicated post about it.  This recipe is a bit involved, but it is easy.  It just has a lot of steps.  It’s easier if you make the cornbread the day before. Stuffing, or dressing, depending on where…

#TBT Dining out gluten free


  I originally wrote this post on June 15, 2015.  It’s still relevant in the fact that dining out is still a major undertaking.  So much so, that I hardly go out to eat anymore. When I decided to go gluten free almost a year ago, I sat down and had a talk with my…

Battle of the chocolate cakes, Part 2


Several months ago, I wrote a post about the battle between the chocolate cakes, using King Arthur Measure for Measure flour and Mina’s chocolate cake mix.  Today the battle is between King Arthur and Better Batter.   I have heard people rave about it, so I decided to compare it to my favorite King Arthur…
