Fun Snacking With Hipster Nachos

Posted by Rach Sebell

Apr 7, 2014 8:38:10 AM

I'm guilty often lately, of not having food in the house. It isn't that I eat out all the time and I swear, I'm not just living off popcorn and ice cream. The reality is that I live walking distance to at least four grocery stores so Tal or I end up deciding last minute what to make. But then there are the weekends when I am sitting around doing work, the hours pass and then suddenly, I'm really hungry and there is nothing to eat. There are two ways to look at this situation. One, I could be annoyed at myself, trudge in the cold to the grocery store and then take the time to cook. Or, take the opportunity to create a culinary invention. This option is of course way more fun, however can be tricky if like me, you have five types of pickles and little else in the house. Well, I guess there is a third option, dial a pizza, but for those of us who are gluten-free and trying to live on a budget, that really isn't an option so I decided to get creative.

Yummy Gluten-free Girl Scout Cookies

Posted by Rach Sebell

Mar 9, 2014 9:00:00 AM

It's Girl Scout Cookie time and as happens every year, I have been feeling a little sad. I know that I shouldn't really care about not eating Girl Scout Cookies. They are filled with so many things I'm not really interested in consuming, but I can't help it. There is something about getting a box of thin mints and enjoying their prepackaged goodness. Well this is not something Celiacs can do. But hang on, their is hope now! This year, the Girl Scouts of America have embraced us and developed the first ever gluten-free Girl Scout Cookie.

Revisiting Gluten-free Pancakes Using Almond Flour

Posted by Rach Sebell

Mar 8, 2014 8:13:00 AM

Pancakes can hit you like a lead weight in your stomach. I have often marvelled that these delicious discs can be served for breakfast. As a kid, I loved pancakes for dinner but even still, they were really hard to digest. Even after adapting them with rice flour to make gluten-free pancakes, I still found them very heavy on my stomach. Thanks to my friend Rich, I have been exploring cooking with almond flour. No, I am not going Paleo, but the almond flour does make baking lighter, tastier and for me, easier to digest some old favorite baked goods that I don't digest easily even when they are adapted.

Superb Gluten-free Blueberry Muffins

I love blueberry muffins. They remind me of being back in boarding school and coming into the dining hall each morning. It makes me think of reading the New York Times each morning with my closest friends, drinking too many cups of coffee and dipping muffins, like they were cookies into my coffee. I recently had a team member's birthday coming up and I didn't know what to bake. Because of schedules, we had to get together to celebrate his birthday in the morning. So instead of cupcakes, I decided to make blueberry muffins. The results were delicious and everyone was surprised it was gluten-free!

Easy Savory Roasted Beets and Carrots | Gluten-free Recipe

Posted by Rach Sebell

Jan 8, 2014 3:17:17 PM

Winter is here and root vegetables are abound so why not make a delicious meal of savory roasted beets and carrots. This meal is simple, and naturally a gluten-free recipe. I love this meal not only because it is tasty, but also because it is colorful which is harder to find in your winter meals.
Interesting fact, beets are healthier roasted rather than boiled so if you roast the beets, you are getting more vitamins and nutrients. Another fun fact is that carrots are healthier when eaten than cooked. So you are getting more out of your veggies by trying this recipe!

Fabulous Chocolate Chip Gluten-free Oat Bars

Posted by Rach Sebell

Jan 5, 2014 3:13:00 PM

Oats? You are probably scratching your head since I NEVER publish anything with oats. I recently went to my allergist to redo my allergy tests and I got back a clean bill for my tests! I'm still a Celiac but it looks like my immune system is finally calming down, so I decided to give gluten-free oats a try. So far, success! We started with gluten-free oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and that was a success so now, I am trying chocolate chip gluten-free oat bars. Please note, if you are a Celiac, it is critical that you use gluten-free oats and nothing else. You will get sick from Quaker, Mcann's and other non-gluten-free oats.

Sweet Potato Tower For Your Gluten-free Thanksgiving

Posted by Rach Sebell

The holiday is getting closer and closer by the day. You have probably thought about your Turkey and desserts, but have you thought of some new ways to enjoy sides this year? Whether you have a gluten-free Thanksgiving or just need a gluten-free side-dish, try these sweet potato towers. They are very easy to make but feel a little fancier than mashed sweet potatoes. Added bonus for those of us who can't digest butter, there is no dairy in the whole recipe!

The holiday's are approaching so it is time for some delicious gluten-free Thanksgiving recipes. Life is short so let's start with dessert, a chocolate, pear hazelnut tart. I made it this morning for a friends birthday and it took 40 min including cook time. This gluten-free tart is delicious and simple. The nutty, chocolaty crust has a slight hint of salt which pairs perfectly (yes pun intended) with the creamy custrard and pear filling. Don't tell your guests this is a gluten-free thanksgiving treat and see what they think.

Gluten_free_Vegan_Dark_Chocolate_Truffles

Now that I am not eating much dairy, I am hard pressed to find delicsiou gluten-free vegan recipes for dessert. It isn't impossible, but since I am allergic to soy, I have to really adapt recipes. It was one of my team member's birthday's last week so I needed to make a fun treat. Gluten-free vegan truffles seemed like a great idea. These simple truffles are delicious, rich, satisfying and pretty easy to make. The hardest part is rolling them out. For this experiment, I tried the chocolate truffles three ways; with coconut butter, peanut butter and vegan butter. All were delicious so it really depends on your preference.
