Best Gluten Free Dessert Recipe

HELP! We are going to our son’s end of the year picnic for school and with our last name we are supposed to bring dessert! I LOVE cooking, but am not so great at desserts! Please share your best gluten-free recipe for dessert. I know I can make some pretty basic cookies…chocolate chip, peanut butter, and I can make a mean box mix of cupcakes with icing and brownies…but what else is there that would be kid friendly! Any cookie recipes to share! I would like to bring something that no one can tell is gluten-free!

I only heard of this food yesterday but apparently it is common in Mexico and Spain. It’s basically spaghetti, often with chicken, beef or beans added in a tomato sauce. But… The difference between it and Italian spaghetti is that the spaghetti noodles are broken in small pieces and browned in oil. Would rice or corn pasta actually brown? Also the pasta is cooked in the sauce rather than boiling it in water. Not sure gluten-free pasta would hold up to that.

I did once make a regular spaghetti when I was a kid that was done in a skillet in sauce. The pasta was cooked right in the sauce. Must not have been a hit for our family because I don’t remember making it again.

Pizza / Baking Stone Vs Pizza Pan?

Putting the issue of cost aside, would a pizza/baking stone or a pizza pan be a better tool to use for pizza? I have 4 kids ages 4 – 12, so I’d prefer to have 2 pizzas in the oven at once. I’m not sure if you can have 2 pizza stones in the oven at once??

For a pizza pan, I’d either get a Cuisinart non-stick one or a Lodge cast iron one. For a stone, I’d get a square one, so I could try it out for baking. Do you use your stone for baking as well?

Found New Recipe For Chili-Mac

My younest son Ishmael use to like to eat chili-Mac before he was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Now, he doctor put him on a gluten-free diet. He has been so lost without his favorite food. So, I found out this morning that Bush’s Beans makes a gluten-free chili. I checked with several sources and included the Bush’s Beans Company as well. So, if you mix Annie’s Creamy Deluxe Box of gluten-free cheese and macaroni and Bush’s Gluten-free beasns together, you get gluten-free Chili-Mac just like he use to eat. When, I first researched it, everyone told me there is not such thing as gluten-free Chili-Mac sold on the market today. Well, it seems to be doing the trick. You can find just about anykind of food if you look hard enough. Key is to experiment with different food groups and come up with new or old dishes accept, in gluten-free form.

Meatloaf Recipes? Anyone?

I’m stuck. I’m tapped out. I love ground beef, cook with it all the time, but I’m at a loss for tonight. I want to make those cute meatloaves in muffin tins with mashed potato “frosting” but I can’t find an easy, gluten-free recipe for meat loaf. Mine always comes out too wet and I like it solid enough to slice for sandwiches. I have gluten-free rolled oats but have never used them in meatloaf. If it makes any difference, we use grass fed beef so it’s pretty low fat and we don’t have any other food issues.
Any other fun dinner ideas are welcome!

Freezable Recipes


My question is a really simple one. My family cooks dinner and eats it as a family on the weekends. During the rest of the week, dinner comes out of the freezer and is usually prepared in the microwave. I dont want to buy the expensive “TV dinner” type gluten-free foods, I would much prefer to make my own and then freeze portions. So far, I have made and frozen a couple of barbeque pulled pork meals (to be eaten as wraps in brown rice tortillas) and some gluten-free rotini with pasta sauce. I am thinking I could probably do chicken enchiladas, but…

Does anybody have any tried and true recipes that are good for freezing?

Beet Pancakes

Let me preface this by saying that I like beets, and I don’t eat a lot of sugar in general.

The back story:
I make some version of primal pancakes occasionally using ground nuts, eggs, and a bit of sweetener. I don’t make them very sweet because I like to use the leftover pancakes as ‘bread’ later in the day. I had been wondering if I could use dates or something as the sweetener to get away from using sugar.

So this morning I wake up in the mood for pancakes. Again the question of what to use for sweetener. I look in the fridge and see three leftover roasted beets, so what the heck, let’s try it.

The recipe:
Food process about a cup of mixed almonds and walnuts.

Throw in three roasted, peeled beets and process until smooth mush.

Throw in three eggs. Mine were small so maybe two extra large eggs.

Throw in ~ 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp baking powder.

Puree until blended.

Pour in maybe 1/3 cup of sparkling water. Pulse. Add more until it’s the consistency you want.

Cook as normal pancakes.

These are only slightly sweet, taste faintly of beets, and are amazingly tender. They won’t work for bread, but you could pile them with berries and they’d be incredible. I’m sitting here stuffing myself with them right off the griddle. :D

Invited To A Tea

You know, I never go to these things because I know whatever I take is all I’ll be able to eat. Half the fun of it is sampling what everyone else brings.

But, I’ve decided to try it this time and only eat what I end up taking along with the tea. The only problem is I have no idea what to bake.

Does anybody have ideas and/or recipes you’d like to share that actually taste good? Was thinking along the lines of some sort of English biscuit. In America, these are soft cookies? This is more of a British thing, I think. We’re also supposed to wear tea hats (?). I’m going to wear one of my gag-gifts from my husband. It’s an old 50s style hat with a feather.

Gluten Free Pizza Tonight!

Three times a charm! I finally made a good pizza crust… yeah!! And it’s pretty darn good. My son ate a lot of it!
Here’s the recipe in case anyone out there doesn’t want to use a mix–it’s really not hard to do it from scratch.

Dissolve a teaspoon sugar in 1 cup lukewarm water and a Tablespoon yeast

While the yeast is activating, butter (with a good bit of butter) two circle pans or one (small–European sized) sheet rectangle.
Preheat oven to 200 C/400 F

Whisk 1 1/2 C rice flour, 2/3 C potato flour, 1/2 polenta (I’m sure tapioca flour would sub if you can’t eat corn), 1/4 C. corn starch, 1 1/2 teaspoon gluten free baking powder, 1 teaspoon xanthum gum, 1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix 1 Tablespoon olive oil, 1 egg, and yeast w/water together, add the flour mixture and mix.

Dust your hands with rice flour and pat it into a ball. Put it in the pan and (with dusted hands) pat into the pan. Let rise in the pan for 15 min.
Bake for about 8-10 minutes until just starting to brown. Then put your toppings on and bake for another 5 minutes or so until toppings are bubbly and golden.

Tell you what… that was sooooo good after eating some pretty bad gluten free pizza crusts.

Now… anyone have a good buckwheat pancake recipe to make from scratch?
