I’ve liked chai for ages, drinking it cold and hot. It’s my go-to drink at coffee shops. On a recent visit to Zingos, they had gluten-free chai cupcakes. I was ecstatic to have a gluten-free dessert. And it tasted so amazing I had to try to make them myself. I used the gluten-free yellow cake mix from Aldi and added the chai spice combination from the Carol Fenster cookbook 1,000 Gluten-Free Recipes. I also added the spices to the frosting and substituted cream cheese for sour cream.
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to have a gluten-free cake pop in Cincinnati. Check it out!
When in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I stopped at Rockwell Republic for sushi and creme brulee (since I haven’t had creme brulee in years). All three gluten-free sushi rolls were amazing. The Spicy Salmon and Philadelphia were my favorites. I nearly cried because the cherry creme brulee was so good. Now to get a torch and make it at home.
It’s that time of year again with fresh produce and baked goodies at local farmers markets. So far I’ve enjoyed the new treats from gluten-free vendors (including graham crackers! Now I can make real pie crust and s’mores) and fresh asparagus, tomatoes, and feta cheese for one of my favorite pasta dishes.
I’ve been to Ann Arbor a few times, and it’s not a trip without stopping at Zingerman’s Deli. But after starting the gluten-free diet, it no longer seemed an option. I did email customer service to see if they still had the option of gluten-free bread. They did! And when I placed my order, a manager checked it to make sure all of the ingredients were gluten-free.
On the recommendation of a friend, I tried the pizza and handcrafted root beer at BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse. It was delicious! I look forward to my next visit. There is a gluten-free menu available on their website.
The Immaculate cookies are yummy! It’s nice to have great taste and easy to break apart cookies.
I’m not really a brownie person, but find the right mix for me and that will change. 1-2-3 Gluten Free. is that mix for me. I can’t wait to make these again and top them with ice cream for a brownie sundae.
I was at the store, checking the ground lamb like I usually do, when I saw a lamb chop on sale. So I picked it up and followed this recipe. It turned out amazing! Even better alongside garlic mashed potatoes.
I found a fantastic fudge mix at Ben Franklin’s. It was easy to prepare, not that I’ve made fudge before.
