We’re back in the kitchen today to do a few more minutes of work that will save us some time on Thanksgiving day. For today’s work you’ll need a food processor, or a cutting board and chef’s knife; a skilled, and your choice of butter or vegetable oil. Figured out what we’re doing yet?

Let’s do some shopping today. Thanksgiving is one of the few meals each year where I feel free to take advantage of processed foods to make my day a little bit easier.
Pie Crusts: While I like to make my own pie crusts now, I’m not at all ashamed to say that I...

I love turkey, I really do. But I love it most the day after Thanksgiving when we have leftover turkey and stuffing sandwiches.
What Size Bird Do You Need:
The hard part about cooking the Thanksgiving turkey is not roasting that big bird, but calculating how big of a bird that you...

Today is Saturday.
Theoretically people have more free time on weekends and can do some pre-cooking for Thanksgiving. I’m going to assume that you have more free-time this weekend. If you don’t, go ahead and read through this email and the schedule this weekend’s assignment on your calendar for later this week.
This Weekend’s Assignment:...

Now that you know who’s coming to Thanksgiving and who’s doing the cooking (here’s that assignment, if you missed it), it’s time to finalize the recipes. If you’re not doing the cooking, but need food to be gluten free, then you’ll need to coordinate recipes with the person doing the cooking. After all, once you...

Before you can fully plan for Thanksgiving you need to know three things:
1) where you are eating Thanksgiving
2) who is doing the cooking, and
3) how many people need gluten free Thanksgiving dishes
This may be simple…okay, it IS simple. But I’ve still procrastinated about it for a month.
I have a confession. I’m a last-minute Thanksgiving planner. Very last minute. And that’s really just not a smart thing to be when you want to have a delicious Thanksgiving meal that is gluten free. Preparation is needed. So, because I need to plan for Thanksgiving and I’m sure there are some fellow Thanksgiving slackers...

The spices and apples in this recipe make it an extra special breakfast that is perfect for fall. It's also healthier, since the butter is replaced with apple sauce. We really enjoy it!

This recipe makes the wonderful flavor of sourdough available to everyone who eats gluten free. It's an amazing recipe that gets plenty of use around here. It offers a tangy, unique flavor you are sure to love.
The very limited counterspace in our tee-niny RV kitchen is becoming increasingly covered with jars full of fermenting goodness. The most longstanding of the jars is my double batch of kombucha. Several of my cooking class students have asked me to write more about my kombucha, so I’ve prepared a brief pictorial overview of the...

5 Things That You Need To Know About Cornstarch If You Are Gluten Free
1. Cornstarch is naturally gluten free. Corn is naturally gluten free. It is gluten free because it is not wheat, barley or rye. In a world without wheat, barley or rye, corn would always be gluten free. That’s not to...

Everyone has their go-to chili recipe and this is mine. It is a rich, hearty stew that takes you back to simpler times in a heartbeat. Simple to make, it goes very well with gluten free cornbread.

G had a mystery. Her gluten free cupcakes kept sinking in the middle. They were beautiful when they came out of the oven. But, turn your back to get the icing from the refrigerator*, and they’d quickly do their best impression of a dormant volcano. She emailed me to see if I could help her...

I’ve recently made a discovery. It’s a whole heck of a lot of fun to cook gluten free with friends! And the cool thing about it is that you don’t even have to all be together! The wonders of Facebook let people that are separated by hundreds and thousands of miles, and who’ve never met...

In today’s gluten free bread case study, we are taking a look at why gluten free bread fails to rise sometimes. Sekila was working through my Gluten Free Bread 101 class when she wrote this. I love this case study because Sekila realized that her dough was not right and then didn’t hesitate to try...

Similar to a trifle recipe, this pudding involves tasty cookies. You really can't go wrong with the naturally sweet bananas, milk and eggs that make up this pudding. It's certainly healthier than the packaged kind.

A gluten free bread recipe is not the same as a regular bread recipe. This case study shows you just how great things can turn out when you follow the instructions.

With a bread recipe, the pans matter more than you might think. The size of the pan could have a major effect on how exactly your bread turns out. The pan should match the recipe, as I've learned.
