This week for the gluten-free menu plan I have an Easter brunch that will satisfy the whole family, complete with an omelet, crepes, quiche and muffins.
Later on there’ll be a pork roast dinner with rhubarb pie for dessert, and then 6 more days of gluten-free meals that everyone can enjoy, whether or not they eat gluten-free.
One of the best-loved holiday treats in the U.S. is made with marshmallows and crispy rice cereal. Not in the U.S.? And they’re one of your favorites too? If so, please leave a comment below and let me know what you like most about them…
In this version I dressed them up a little for Christmas, so they’re gluten-free and also can be casein-free.
Even if the new Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Gluten Free cereal weren’t whole grain rice…I’d still have made this gluten-free snack just to celebrate the first time in over 12 years that I could make an old favorite. You see, I haven’t had Rice Krispies® in a long time, but now they are available in a gluten-free version.
This week in the Gluten-Free Menu Plan I’m planning meals from the simplest pasta and sauce dinner to a full table, Thanksgiving feast.
I’ve tried to keep it simple and also include healthier options when I can, like low carb veggies to replace most of my serving of pasta with that meat sauce I mentioned.
I hope you can find some dinners here that suit you during this holiday week. On the day set aside (in the U.S.) to give thanks for the abundance we have, I hope you have some time to remember what you are most thankful for. Personally, I don’t want to focus on just the food that we have to eat, although that’s certainly important, but also on the family, friends and neighbors we can share it with.
When I lay out a plan to seat my guests at a dinner, I want to balance the personalities at each table. I want each group to have some who are gentle and mature, some who are a little outspoken and some who maybe are energetic with a few good stories to share.
Similarly, when I’m looking for a completing touch to a gluten-free holiday menu, I can add this tangy, saucy, sweet and spicy choice that is already gluten-free — Spiced Cranberry Pear Sauce.
My husband Al loves apple pie!
His mother made apple pie for him for as long as he can remember.
She would often make a single-crust pie with the apples cut in halves and sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon, then dotted with tiny clumps butter that would melt and flow through the whole pie while it baked in the oven. I remember her pies’ wonderful aroma, texture, and flavor from BGF (Before Gluten-Free) days. I and everyone else in the family absolutely loved her wonderful creations!
My mother-in-law, Mary, sure knew how to bake a pie that vanished and this recipe is no exception. I is a family tradition … Mary called it a Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Tart… and the secret …
One of the deepest, most important, truly fundamental questions of the gluten-free universe is “are marshmallows gluten-free?” That question is “Smore” important than any other question known to Man, Woman or Child… Especially during summer camping, camp fire months or holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas or Easter when marshmallow filled and based treats like Smores, campfire marshmallows, chocolate covered treats and confectioners delights are the norm… and the list is almost endless much to the delight of children of any age!
Although this may not seem such an exciting recipe for many cooks, for me this is an exceptional treat.
Even if the new Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® Gluten Free cereal weren’t whole grain rice…I’d still make this gluten-free snack at least once just to celebrate the first time in about 12 years that I could make an old favorite. You see, I haven’t had Rice Krispies® in a long time, but now they are available in a gluten-free version. So, after enjoying a couple of breakfasts out of that cereal box, I set out to make some of those quick and easy, crowd-pleasing treats from long ago. They really are easy!
