Gluten Free Fluffy Pancakes

23 Jul Pancakes on the griddle

I am officially an over-achiever today. I’ve been awake since 4am and by 5:30, jumped out of bed with the vision of pancakes filling my brain.

I ran through my recipes, thinking to use one I haven’t tried before, and landed on Elizabeth Barbone’s Whole Grain Gluten-Free Pancakes. Now, I like buttermilk in my pancakes (thank goodness I am still able to eat it!), and I didn’t want flax this morning, so I tweaked the recipe a tad and made the best pancakes EVER. Even better than those made with wheat. The batter was a bit thick, but flowed enough to smooth out on the griddle. When I flipped them over, they didn’t collapse and they cooked up high and fluffy. Truly, zero g! Continue reading


Gluten Free Pizza Crust (and more??) Recipe

27 Apr

I have about 15 pizza crust recipes I have either tried or are on my list to try. About two weeks ago, I decided to give the one I found on glutenfreesoxfan’s blog a try. While this is an old post of her’s, the recipe on Karen’s blog is definitely worth looking into. Most of the recipes I have tried so far are thick and fluffy, Continue reading

Gluten free Cheese Danish

27 Apr Gluten Free Cheese Danish

Last week, I was craving a cheese danish. At work, somebody brought in something that smelled sweet and divine and for some reason my brain screamed “OH! We need a danish!” Funny the things you crave when you can’t just pop out to the store and buy it. Continue reading

Gluten Free Beer Battered Fish

6 Mar

I’ve been trying to find a good fried fish recipe to convert to gluten free for quite awhile now. I seemed to have hit on it the other day, as hubby said this was the best fried fish he’s had in a long time. Isn’t it fantastic that it’s gluten free!? Continue reading

Garbanzo’s Mediterranean Grill

5 Mar

So, a couple of weeks ago a co-worker told me I should check out Garbanzo’s, which is pretty new to Boulder. I convinced hubby to try it out for dinner one night and while the line was kind of long and ordering seemed confusing at first, the food was good. And almost all of it is gluten free.

This is one of those places where you walk down the line and tell them what to put on your plate, BUT Garbanzo’s has these nifty little signs in front of each dish showing gluten free, dairy free, vegan, etc. VERY allergy friendly! I had the falafel plate. I don’t remember the last time I had falafel, so I can’t compare it, but I found these to be tasty little gems. They have several yummy sauces,pickled eggplant and a really tasty babaganuosh.

They have a menu and nutritional information on their website. Definitely a great place for a quick lunch or dinner.

Carelli’s of Boulder Ristorante Italiano

5 Mar

I’m Italian by heritage and love italian food. It hasn’t been easy finding gluten free pizza and pasta at restaurants, but Carelli’s is changing all that. Their pizza is light and crisp and they have ravioli *gasp*! They’ve had gluten free ravioli on their menu for quite some time now, but two weeks ago I learned that they are now offering any pasta dish on their menu gluten free. Yes, I had lobster and crab carbonara in a restaurant – and it was wonderful! Not only that, but they have a crepes bar that is also gluten free. Unfortunately, I did not leave room for dessert, but promised to return to have one of their yummy gluten free appetizers for dinner so I can try the crepes.

You can check out their gluten free menu on their web site: http://www.carellis.com/main.html

I have found the staff to be very helpful and understanding when you ask about the gluten free menu. The restaurant is warm and cozy, and I’ve never had a bad meal there in over 10 years.  Please do give them a try and save room for dessert!

The Best Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

5 Mar

Gluten Free Cinnamon RollI found this recipe online last night for gluten free cinnamon rolls and just had to try it out. These are moist, fluffy, and easy to make. Jeanine of The Baking Beauties blog hit it out of the ballpark with this recipe and I highly recommend you try it!

Gluten Free Scones

26 Aug

Gluten Free Blueberry Scones

This is an experiment on scones. I loved the BabyCakes NYC raspberry scones, but can’t tolerate spelt flour. I used Annalise Roberts’ Brown Rice Flour Mix, creating an amalgam of her traditional scones recipe and what I liked most about the BabyCakes’ recipe. The result was a scone with the same great texture of BabyCakes’, with no gluten. Continue reading

Gluten Free Beer

21 Aug

Gluten Free BeersBard’s Tale (Minneapolis), New Grist, RedBridge (Budweiser), New Planet (Boulder, CO) Tread Lightly Ale, Estrella Damm Daura (Spain), and St. Peters (England) are the gluten free beers I can find in my area at LiquorMart, Pettyjohn’s, and Superior Liquor. Most of them are decent beers and generally sorghum-based. I have tried them all except Bard’s Tale, which I am planning to rectify this weekend.Strangely, Red Bridge has always given me a migraine within 20-minutes of drinking even half a beer. I don’t know why, but for that reason I don’t drink it. I don’t care for the flavor of New Grist, so I don’t drink that one, either.
