Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Quinoa has risen quickly as a popular new "supergrain" along with the surge of gluten free products.  But I find it is quite bland on its own, so I haven't experimented much with it until now.  Recently I found a wild rice mix at Costco that had quinoa in it and I've started to appreciate the grain more.

Gluten Free Tempura Battered Fish

I have a confession to make.  I'm addicted to cooking shows.  When my husband and I first moved into our apartment, we signed up for internet and they threw in cable as a promotion for 6 months.  We never really thought we wanted cable.  But I quickly discovered that the Food Network was a fabulous place to spend my days off.  Josh really isn't complaining, he benefits from my entertainment.

Gluten Free Oatmeal Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Once I felt that I had succeeded with sandwich bread I had to keep the ball rolling.  Actually, this one came about because of my Mother's craving.  She was missing cinnamon raisin bread terribly.  The story goes like this...

We were doing our monthly Costco trip together and I was bragging about my success with sandwich bread.  (My mom is a celiac also, so I have to share my successes with her.)  She confessed her craving for cinnamon raisin bread, and I began to wonder if such a recipe could be found on the Baking Beauties website.  Technology is wonderful, and smartphones are so handy... within minutes we had our answer.  YES!   A quick call home to confirm if we had raisins and we rushed home to try it out.  

Gluten Free Sandwich Bread

I was so nervous to try baking gluten free bread.  Every blog I read warned me that it was tricky and finicky and took many many tries.  Talk about discouraging!  I buy both Udi's and Kinnickinnick's sandwich bread and both are good, but I wanted warm, fresh out of the oven, homemade bread!  After I succeeded with the garlic parmesan pull-apart bread I mustered up the courage to try a real loaf.  I searched and searched until I found a recipe that sounded reasonable, had yummy looking pictures to prove it, and didn't use a flour mix.  If bread was as finicky as everyone said, why on earth would I use an AP mix?!  

Gluten Free Cheddar Onion Perogies

Those of you that I have on facebook may have seen the pictures I posted from my visit to Manitoba.  My Grandma and I learned to make GF perogies together!  For those of you that didn't see... here it is.  They were sooo good!  I brought my pasta recipe to the table, and she brought her excellent Mennonite experience making perogies.  A fine team we make I'll say!

Gluten Free Garlic Parmesan Pull Apart Bread

I seem to fallen off of the face of the blogging world.  I apologize!  Life has been... busy.  But I haven't stopped baking!  I still insist that eating gluten free should be equally delicious as otherwise.  And as such, I have a list of recipes that I need to get up here for you.  Be patient with me!  I know some of you have been requesting a few of them, and I promise to get them up sooner rather than later.
