St. Patrick's Day Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated by many nationalities these days, not just by the Irish. In talking with my husband, he told me it is not a holiday celebrated by Puerto Ricans (however, they do celebrate Cinco de Mayo- a Mexican Holiday.) So when he moved to the states, he began adopting a few of our traditions…and who wouldn’t want an excuse to drink green beer (other than a Celiac, of course?!) A little about the Patron Saint Patrick: Did you know he was British? 740 more words

Flavorful and Fabulous Flatbreads

Here in Atlanta, we have such an amazing and diverse community. When my husband called me to say he was asked to transfer to Atlanta, and what did I think, food was truly one of my first thoughts. 1,335 more words

Killer Yellow Cake

When I first was diagnosed, the hardest hurdle to get over was the taste (or lack there of) of gluten-free food. Most of the time, the pre-prepared meals/boxed mixes were awful. 818 more words

Scrumptious Slaw

Cabbage, though quite smelly because of its sulfur content (not to be confused with the preservative-Sulfites/Sulfates,) is one of my FAVORITE sides! Did you know Cabbage, along with fish, rye bread (which we Celiacs’ are unable to consume,) oatmeal, apples and pears, and root vegetables in a diet, was found to decrease the incidence of type II diabetes in 57,000 individuals in a study in Denmark?! 342 more words

Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs

Right in time for the big game, you will never look at another hot dog the same way again! Now, if you are gluten-free by necessity, be sure to read all labels and make sure you get a brand of hot dogs that are labeled “Gluten-free.” There are quite a few brands that are deemed “safe.” The following brands are gluten-free (however, you should ALWAYS read the labels before purchasing, as manufacturers can change their ingredients:) Ball Park, Oscar Mayer, Nathan’s, Boar’s Head, and Applegate Farms (Applegate Farms is certified organic, so you can guarantee sulfite and MSG-free.) I stick to all beef hot dogs to insure no fillers, but feel free to use what you know/prefer. 129 more words
