    Yummy Gluten Free Appetizers

    Yummy Gluten Free Appetizer Recipes Yummy gluten free appetizers aren’t exactly known to be a thing. I don’t know about you, but one common issue I’ve found in my 11+ years of being gluten free is that almost every single appetizer is usually not gluten free. You might as well forget about ordering one in a restaurant as well. But fear not, times are changing, and here are some yummy gluten free appetizers for you to try!! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, gluten free can be delicious! As it should be! Gluten Free Jalapeño Poppers If you’re like me, you miss this spicy and sweet appetizer.…

It only took me 10 years to find the right recipe for me to adapt in the ways best suited for the gluten free route. We all know it’s not as easy as changing up the flour, more goes into it than that, and here’s the fruit of my…

  • Gluten Free Mozzarella Sticks

  • Marinara Sauce

    Marinara Sauce

    Marinara Sauce The great thing about a really good marinara sauce is how versatile it is. You can use this same starter recipe for mozzarella stick dipping sauce, pizza sauce, meatball subs, spaghetti sauce, or use as is served over pasta or gnocchi. This is my personal adaptation of a recipe I found in Delightfully Free a few years ago. So let’s dig into this marinara sauce! Ingredients 3 Tbsp olive oil 5-6 cloves fresh minced garlic (or more to taste…I like a lot of garlic and usually use more) 1 28 oz can tomato puree 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes, drained 1 tsp oregano 1/2 tsp sea salt…

    Gluten Free Unicorn Cheesecake

    Unicorn Cheesecake?! Yup! That’s what I said! I’ve been making this cheesecake for 10 years now and I couldn’t rave about this recipe more than I do. I initially found it in a magazine that’s now called Gluten Free Living. I absolutely LOVE this gluten free cheesecake recipe and have tweaked it over time to be the perfect dessert for my household. My daughter has been on a unicorn (unitorn) kick for almost a year and a half now, and upon seeing a fun unicorn dipping creation on Pinterest, my children asked to make it. I was in the mood for cheesecake though so we went with that and it…

  • Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

    Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

    Stuffed Cabbage Rolls I know what you’re thinking – cabbage…really? YES! These are seriously the best! I am always looking to try a new recipe, especially one in which I don’t have to completely recreate with gluten free and soy free substitutes. This is a great staple piece to rotate into your dinner menu throughout the winter months. It has great flavor and makes for a great leftover meal. This meal will take you about 2 hours in total to make between prep time and cook time. Prep time is only 25 minutes, so not bad at all!! On a side note though, this meal is amazing as a freezer…

  • Gluten Free Brownies

    Delicious Gluten Free Brownies

    Delicious Gluten Free Brownies Yes, it’s true…these are gluten free and they’re damn delicious! I promise you! I’ve not had a single wheat infested eating friend think these are gluten free! They’re such a moist, chocolatey and decadent little treat that is ready in less than an hour! I stumbled upon this originally non-gluten free gem of a recipe on All Recipes and absolutely LOVE this platform for finding new recipes! You can’t go wrong with Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free Brownies when in a crunch, but these seriously are crazy easy and I don’t feel nearly as dirty after eating them. They’re obviously not the healthiest treat…but totally okay since…

  • General Tao

    Gluten Free General Tao Chicken

    Gluten Free General Tao Chicken One of may all time favorite comfort foods during college was general tao chicken, but that’s not on the menu when you’re gluten free. Add in soy free and it’s pretty much not an option anywhere. I use coconut aminos to work around this allergy. I found this amazing recipe on All Recipes but had to do some serious adaptations in order to make it gluten free. This recipe is now soy free as well because of my growing list of food allergies. It’s amazing what a few quick ingredient changes and opting to cook at home will do for your diet! Let’s get started on…

    Celiac Disease Diagnosis

    The Day My Life Changed I remember getting my celiac disease diagnosis on Wednesday, February 27th, 2008. What is Celiac Disease?….and how the hell do I even manage such a diagnosis? I was overwhelmed and slightly depressed by it all, if I’m being honest. The relief I felt having answers to all of my pain, medical issues, and constant exhaustion, is indescribable. Especially being one in which my medication was a diet change and not an actual mediation, but I was so angry. WHY?! In retrospect, I was angry becausde I didn’t know. I had no idea what to expect or how I’d function with such diet restrictions. Nobody taught…

  • Gluten Free Meatballs

    Gluten Free Meatballs

    Childhood Memories I spent countless hours in the kitchen with my Italian grandfather while growing up. I always opted to help him cook instead of playing with my cousins. They didn’t know where the real fun was…or where the yummy snacks were! While I’ve yet to master his amazing recipe as being one of gluten free meatballs, I found this AMAZING one from Fountain Avenue Kitchen. It was incredibly easy to make gluten free and the only additional change I made was adding more garlic…because is there every enough garlic? This recipe will certainly fit the bill until I’m able to master my grandfather’s recipe! In my home, we’re in…
