The gf falafel mixture before adding flour I’m embarrassed that I don’t have that beautiful, focused in the foreground-blurry in the background photo of my completed falafel. We got so caught up in the making/eating, we forgot! I promise they looked just like what you would expect; crispy brown on the outside and greenish-flecked on […]

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Tuna Noodle Casserole

It’s hard enough to be gluten-free but throw in dairy-free too and it can be hard to convert recipes or find substitutes. I’ve been looking for a good gluten-free noodle to use for casseroles but had not found one until I came across Mrs Glee’s Crazy Noodles. The first thing I pictured was a tuna […]

How to make Arepas

Arepas (ah-ray-pahs) are a corn pocket which can be found on many street corners in Venezuela. I first became familiar with them when I met Adriana Lopez Vermut from Pica Pica Arepa Kitchen at the Gluten-Free Spree in San Francisco in 2009. At the time, she only had a location in Napa’s Oxbow Market. Now, there are […]

Gluten-free orange sesame beef stir fry

I was speaking to a friend today about blogging. My advice to her was that some times it’s ok to just write a quick entry without spending a lot of time. That’s my goal; let’s see how I do (I had to write the recipe; this took the longest). I think you’ll love this gluten-free […]

Gluten-Free Orange Chicken

This gluten-free orange chicken was born out of a desire to make my daughter happy. When my husband had the traditional gluten-containing version while we were out for lunch one day, my daughter looked on in envy. Surely, I believed—after years of adapting recipes for my gluten-sensitive family—the same taste could be achieved without the […]
