Gluten Free Baking. It’s one of the more difficult areas of gluten free living for sure, and most of the recipes you have seen me tackle have come from my trying pre-made mixes.  While there is nothing wrong with that, we all want to know which mixes are worth the money or not when it comes to gluten free….if I am going to profess to be a “real” gluten free cook on this blog, I am going to have to start trying baking recipes from scratch and using GF alternatives to flour right?…

Summer Fruit Cobbler

Blueberry Cobbler

Organic Blueberries

Organic Blueberries

I am going to start this one off by being completely honest.  This is NOT low-calorie, NOT low sugar and NOT low fat.  It is however Gluten Free, incredibly simple and ridiculously delicious! When you see the ingredients you will know why.

Making tasty gluten free baked goods is a definite challenge, a lot of misses to get a hit here and there.  This Summer Fruit Cobbler (I call it that because it is so versatile – you can enjoy it with many different kinds of fruits) is one of my favorite discoveries.  I found a this recipe online about a year ago, however it was NOT gluten free.  I of course altered to GF but the first time I made this it was WAY to sweet, so after a little experimentation I found the sweet spot….so to speak, and today I will share it with one of my favorite fruits  – blueberries….

Sticky Fingers Scones

Easter Breakfast at Zia's

Easter Breakfast at Zia’s

Sometimes I really enjoy creating new recipes, altering old favorites to become Gluten-Free and cooking up a storm.

Sometimes I just want something already mixed, gluten-free and easy to make. I have been promising a few friends who have had a recent family member diagnosis of a gluten allergy that I would do a list of best gluten-free prepackaged products, but it occurred to me that is a daunting task for one post.  Instead I am gong to do smaller posts for you all with my experiences with great gluten-free products.  Eventually I will curate it all onto a page but one step at a time.  The monkeys only nap for so long these days.

If they nap at all. Sigh…

It’s All About The Corn Flakes

IMG_5036

When you are Gluten Free you don’t get to enjoy very many fried or “crispy” foods you once did.  Which is probably a good thing.  However for those times you want to make things like breaded eggplant, chicken fingers, zucchini fries or more, most gluten free breadcrumbs just don’t cut it.  Panko is out of course.  So what do you do?  I recently found the answer in Publix completely by accident.  While searching to see if they had any new gluten free breadcrumb options I found it.

Corn Flake Crumbs!…

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

IMG_5571

Well in the past few weeks while I have been absent from the blog, I have still been cooking up a storm, and eating like I am getting ready to hibernate for the winter. Of course I live somewhere where you can still wear bathing suits through winter, so I better cut it out.  However I have been inspired of late to bake more and after discovering I had more cans of Libby’s 100% Pumpkin in my pantry than I really knew what to do with, I decided it was time to start using them up and in more creative ways then pumpkin pie!

My friend Mel gave me a pumpkin chili recipe that sounds to die for, but I have yet to go get myself a slow cooker/crock pot so I am waiting on that one. I was looking up some ideas online and found Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls! Ok, sounds perfect!  Now to make them Gluten Free!

Oh a baking we will go…a baking we will go….high ho my jeans are tight, a baking we will go………

Williams-Sonoma Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread

I love fall. Up North where I was born, the air gets cool and crisp, the leaves change color the smell of burning firewood starts to permeate the air.  In Southern California where I lived for so long, the days are sunny, the temperatures range from the mid 60’s to the low 80’s.  You can start wearing layers, the sunsets seem to have an even more golden hue, the pacific drops in temperature and Trader Joe’s shelves are lined with pumpkin flavored products of every kind.

Here in South Florida……well……the license plates start changing color as the snowbirds start migrating down here on 95.  I would like to say it starts getting cooler, the humidity drops and it becomes more pleasurable outside, but that, technically, would be a lie.  (That’s what it’s like in the winter.)…
