We love Cloud 9 flour, but up until now, we had to drive over 500 miles to get it! Yesterday, we found it at our local Costco, so we bought three bags and made these amazing pancakes for breakfast!
Monday is Canada Day, a time for celebrations and summer get togethers with family and friends. Here are gf and me’s top recipes for a great summer BBQ! Try one or two or put them all together for an unforgettable summer BBQ! Happy Canada Day!
Perfect for entertaining: you put the plank on the grill and forget about it! Full of sweet and savory flavour, cedar plank salmon is a true West Coast classic.
3. Roasted Potatoes:
Compliments everything from fish to chicken to beef. Make it on the grill, in the oven, or in your Tfal fryer.
This salad is sweet and light and takes in all the best that the July markets have to offer.
4. Baked Beans:
The perfect make ahead side dish. Great for pot lucks!
A truly fantastic dessert. The red and white topping makes this perfect for Canada Day.
Who doesn’t love fresh ice cream? Make it with the kids while you wait for the fireworks to start. And since it’s Canada Day why not add a few chopped red maraschino cherries?
If “we all scream for ice cream,” why is there gluten in it? Really, ice cream should be inherently gluten free but some brands aren’t and others may be cross contaminated. If you make it yourself, you KNOW it’s gf (and you can control the fat content). Besides, it’s fun to do and this recipe is soooo easy, your kids will want to do it. It makes about 5 cups of premium flavoured vanilla ice cream but can be used as a base for other flavours. See below for some suggestions, but the only limit is your imagination!
You will need an ice cream maker of some sort. We use a Cuisinart model and it works great, but if you don’t want to buy an expensive electronic model, try one of these ice cream balls from LL Bean instead.
When you’re eating gluten free, snacks and quick meals can be hard to come by. This versatile recipe makes 15 chewy take-a-long bars that taste great and are stuffed full of good things.
Note: Not everyone who has celiac disease can tolerate oats, even when the oats are gluten free. If you have questions, talk to your physician or dietitian.
Trimble Cake is a luxurious Orange Chiffon Cake that my mom always made for birthdays or special occasions. She would bake it in a tube pan and ice it with sticky and oh-so-sweet seven-minute frosting. But baked in an oblong pan, it adds a delicious twist to strawberry shortcake, which is how it is prepared here. It’s named after the neighbour who generously gave my mom her amazing recipe.
What is Geoff’s Chicken? Melt-in-your-mouth-tender pieces of chicken in a creamy tomato and onion sauce with hints of garlic and just a bit of peppery heat. Serve with rice and a tossed salad for a complete meal!
Fresh, light, and intensely fruity … who doesn’t love an icy cold sorbet on a hot summer’s day? It’s also surprisingly easy to make, and this version is chock full of vitamin C, beta-carotene, and dietary fibre. Not to mention, totally gluten and dairy free!
In this dish, sweet and savory come together to transport you to paradise. Satay is perfect party fare – especially when served with peanut sauce – but we like it so much, we pair it with jasmine rice and stir fry vegetables for a light summer meal.A great BBQ option in the summer heat!
Like coconut and caramel? You’ll love this square. The not-too-sweet base melts in your mouth and is complimented perfectly with the rich coconut-caramel topping. Delightful!
