soft cinnamon bread rolls

There’s something about September that makes us crave cinnamon and these gluten free cinnamon rolls are the perfect answer. Using Glutino’s Gluten Free Pantry French Bread and Pizza Crust mix as a base, they are fluffy, soft, and relatively simple to make.

easy crusty bread – sshhh, it’s gluten free

Yes, we said “easy” and “bread” and no, that’s not an oxymoron. Crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle, this gf adaptation of no-knead bread has a slight sourdough taste and the look and texture of an artisan loaf. It doesn’t keep for more than a few hours so the recipe produces a mini-loaf about the size of four dinner rolls. gf crusty bread. gf and me 2013.We have now posted a second crusty bread recipe. See gf and me’s crusty bread II.

This is a conversion of a recipe from simply so good.

This dish is full of cheesy, tomato-y pasta – and honestly, what else is there when it comes to comfort foods like casseroles? It’s also easy to throw together and the egg noodles turn out perfectly, neither crunchy nor gooey.

nourishment for living well’s almond flour raspberry muffins

These are some of the best muffins Geoff and I have ever tasted – including those we’d tried before going gluten free. But we figured they would be since the blog’s preamble to the recipe included: “This one is for you Mom, to give you some good recipes for the 5lb bag of almond flour I convinced you to buy!” Who wouldn’t post their absolute best almond flour recipe after saying that!

Geoff and I were intrigued by these muffins because they looked an awful lot like some almond flour muffins we’d purchased at a farmer’s market while on holiday and had been yearning for ever since. It turns out these are actually better than those market muffins. Thanks so much to Nourishment for Living Well for the recipe.

fireside pastry pockets: you’ll be the happiest camper around

pastry pockets-001Next time you have a campfire (or light your fireplace, or start your BBQ), give these pastry pockets a try – you won’t be disappointed! Cooked on a wooden dowel (purchased at any hardware store), they can be stuffed with an endless assortment of goodies. Try peanut butter and jam (Geoff’s favorite), Nutella (my favorite), our not-too-sweet cream cheese icing and a sprinkling of cinnamon (tastes like a cinnamon bun – just a bit crunchier), and fruit flavoured yogurt (more healthful and very tasty).

The recipe for these was inspired by don’t forget delicious‘s dough for “fastest cinnamon rolls.”
