  • Gluten Free Holiday Meals and Entertaining

    I love having friends and family over for the holidays, but gluten free holiday meals can seem daunting.  We usually have one or two orphans(someone who isn’t able go home for the holidays) and some family over for the holidays.  Our gatherings are usually pretty small, because our families are spread out all over the US, so getting everyone in the same room over a holiday is pretty impossible.   Entertaining does give me an excuse to set the table beautifully, bring out the nice serving platters, utensils, etc, but when you’re making food for lots of non-gluten free people, you don’t want them to feel like they’re missing out.  When I do have people over I usually make everything gluten free….I used to buy pre-made non gluten free stuffing, but everyone usually liked my homemade gluten free version so now I only make everything gluten free. In past years, I’ve ordered partially prepared… Read More

  • Beef Stew

    Well, it’s finally getting chilly in Los Angeles….yes that mean a dip into the 60’s.  I can’t believe that I lived in New York City for 10+ years, I’ve lost my ability to handle cooler weather.  Now that we are having this cooler weather, I decided to bring out the slow cooker and this week I made beef stew (I called in Beef Bourguignon in the video, but it’s more like a beef stew ;-)) and just had to share it.  So, I made it live on Periscope on Monday, if you’re on Periscope please follow me so that you can catch my next live endeavor.  You can find me at:  https://www.periscope.tv/GFAvenger  So the Periscope and the recipe are below.

  • Secrets to Great Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

    So this week I’m sharing some tips and tricks on how to make great gluten free chocolate chip cookies.  My mom alway made the recipe on the back of the ORIGINAL NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE bag, so that’s the one I love, but it’s been really hard to make gluten free chocolate chip cookies that taste like my mom used to make.  That was until I discovered Authentic Foods Steve’s Cake Flour Blend….I was able to take the regular Nestle Toll House recipe and substitue regular flour for Steve’s Cake Flour and they turned out amazing. Have you seen the photos?!?!  They look exactly like a regular chocolate chip cookie and they taste amazing too. My husband and friends cannot even tell the difference between my gluten free chocolate chip cookies and a regular one. If you checked out my interview with Steve a few months back at the Gluten Free Expo,… Read More
