Gluten-Free Roosevelt Bean Recipe from Yellowstone National Park

Sunday May 25, 2014

Gluten-Free Roosevelt Bean Dish Recipe Image Teri Gruss

"Roosevelt Beans" are a tradition on the menus at all of the historic lodge restaurants in spectacular Yellowstone National Park. This hearty bean dish is so popular that park restaurants have printed up a recipe card for diners to take home.

The key to making this recipe gluten-free is to carefully read the labels on canned beans and bacon products. Baked beans are always great as a side at cookouts but this dish is meaty enough to serve as an entree. Roosevelt Beans are a favorite cookout side dish at my house and perfect for this holiday weekend celebration.

Happy gluten-free cooking this Memorial Day!

Picnic Plans and You're Out of Mayo? Don't worry.

Tuesday May 20, 2014

Gluten-Free Mayonnaise Recipe Image Teri Gruss

You're getting ready to make your Memorial Day picnic dish - potato salad, macaroni salad, deviled eggs, sandwiches - something that calls for lots of mayo.

You get your big jar of mayo out of the frig and find that last night your husband raided it. No more mayo. Why did he put the jar back in the frig? Well, he did.

It's a holiday. Now what?

Easy enough. Make your own mayo in about 5 minutes.  If you have eggs, some kind of vegetable oi. preferably olive oil and a lemon or vinegar you're set. And with a food processor or immersion (stick) blender it takes about 5 minutes. And yes, it's better than store-bought.

How to Brew Gluten-Free Beer at Home - Start with an Ale

Monday May 12, 2014

How to Brew Gluten Free Beer by Teri Gruss

Several years ago I started experimenting with home brewing gluten-free beer. I read as many books on home brewing as I could get my hands on and even joined the American Home Brewing Association. At the time, members got a really cool bumper sticker and a subscription to the association's wonderful magazine Zymurgy. It's been quite a learning experience and actually a lot of fun.

Gluten-free home brewers have limits in the styles and flavors of beers we can make, but nonetheless, we can make some rather amazing beers using water, gluten-free sorghum syrup, hops and brewing yeast. Ales ferment much more quickly than lagers so they are a good style for beginners learning the art and science of home brewing gluten-free beers.

Start brewing now and you can enjoy your own batch of gluten-free lawn mowing beer just in time for summer. But before you begin, please read about home brewing and check out our extensive links to this rewarding hobby.

How to Make Authentic Homemade Gluten-Free Tamales

Thursday May 1, 2014

Homemade Gluten-Free Pork Filled Tamales

There's no way around it - the process of making homemade tamales is time-consuming but authentic tamale lovers world-wide will tell you, a real tamale is worth every minuto of preparation.

My family can't seem to get enough homemade tamales. We were all happy (relieved actually) to learn that making a gluten-free version of our old favorite tamale recipe was so easy. The cardinal rule to successfully make gluten-free tamales is to use masa harina (a special form of corn flour) that's not cross-contaminated with gluten during processing or packaging.

Fortunately, Bob's Red Mill, one of the larger gluten-free product vendors sells gluten-free golden masa harina corn flour - the main ingredient in the dough used to make tamales. You can use this to make very authentic homemade corn tortillas too so it's a useful flour to keep in your gluten-free pantry.

If you're new to tamale making, please check out the links in the recipe. The information about tamales from our Mexican Food Expert Chelsie will help you on your way to making your first delicious batch of homemade tamales - and just in time for Cinco de Mayo this coming week.

Gluten-Free Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Sunday April 20, 2014

Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Recipe

The carrot, with its naturally high sugar content and its deep, reddish orange-colored glow is a healthy addition to cake recipes. For centuries cooks used carrots in their cakes because they did not have easy access to sugar like we have today. Not such a bad thing most of us would agree.

Three cups of grated carrots go into this moist, spiced gluten-free carrot cake recipe, adding carotene, a nutrient that your body uses to make vitamin A. The cream cheese frosting is simple to make and adds a rich balance to this sweet cake. This is my son's favorite gluten-free birthday cake.

Make Your Own Gluten-Free Easter Candy!

Thursday April 17, 2014

Give candy. Get candy. Hide candy. Find candy. Candy. CANDY!

Solid Chocolate Easter Egg Recipe

Easter was one of my favorite holidays as a child, second only to Halloween on a childhood scale of candy satiety. Today as a sensible grown-up and health-oriented to boot, the thought of giving a child commercial Easter candy full of genetically modified high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated soybean oil just doesn't work for me. These unhealthy ingredients permeate our daily diets as is.

That's why I am so excited to share some terrific homemade Easter candy recipes this week. They come from our brilliant Candy Expert, Elizabeth LaBau. Try Elizabeth's amazing solid chocolate Easter egg recipe and marshmallow chicks just to name a few of the classic Easter candy recipes in this collection.

Be sure to use gluten-free ingredients, like gluten-free graham crackers in Elizabeth's crunchy peanut butter Easter egg recipe. And if cooking isn't for you, check out our Celiac Disease and Gluten Sensitivity Expert's latest safe candy list.

Gluten-Free Giant Lemon Ginger Crisp Cookies Image Teri GrussAs I watched my buttery gluten-free cookie dough, flecked with freshly grated lemon zest and minced crystallized ginger spread out on the cookie sheet to thin, very thin enormous circles, I started thinking, disaster! Not unusual in the world of gluten-free bakers, but always disappointing for sure.

This gluten-free recipe story has a happy ending. Even my gluten-eaters raved about these big, bright chewy good gluten-free cookies.
