Grillin’ It Gluten-Free

Grilling season has arrived, which is my favorite time to cook gluten-free.  There is nothing easier than adding a bit of spice to a few pieces of meat and veggies and throwing them on the grill.  A must have for my gluten-free grilling summer is a grill basket.  This...

Not for the Novice

My husband picked up a few new gluten-free cookbooks for me on a recent trip. One is Blackbird Bakery Gluten-Free, by Karen Morgan. If you are an adventurous baker, and not afraid of recipes that are more than five ingredients, I highly recommend it.  I had to special...

Cinco De Mayo a Bit Early

Over the last two years, I have visited several Mexican restaurants in the Toledo area that were willing to make gluten-free accommodations for me.  However, none of them had a dedicated gf menu, and anytime cooking gf is not a standard procedure at a restaurant, I...

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice

One of the products I picked up at Walt Churchill’s was a boxed mixed from 123 Gluten Free.  I am always a bit nervous about purchasing gluten-free boxed mixes.  In my experience, they tend to be a bit on the gritty side, and I have found that when I bake...

The other day I had to run a few errands and managed to turn it into a great gluten-free excursion.  I hit several of my favorite gluten-free stops and made a discovery or two. My first stop was to get my meals at Super Suppers.  The March gluten-free menu...

A Steak and a Sack

Several weeks ago my husband and I were celebrating a special occasion, so we splurged and went to Mancy’s.  My husband called ahead to make sure that they could accommodate a gluten allergy.  They assured him it was no problem. Our server knew what...

No Fish Fry Fridays for Me

First, let me state that I am not really a fish fan.  Outside of tilapia and shrimp, I do not eat many things that come from the sea.  Growing up Catholic I was fortunate to have a mother that shared (or perhaps caused) my distaste for fish.  So,...
Waffle Weakness

Waffle Weakness

Over the last few pancake breakfast, I have been taking notice of the waffle recipes on the back of the Pamela’s Pancake mix. I prefer waffles to pancakes and have only had frozen gluten-free waffles in two years. So, I started seriously considering purchasing a...
