Gluten-Free Blackberries — Menu Plan June 27

By · Comments (0) · Print This Post Print This Post

BerriesJuneIt’s our final week of Summer Berries at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap. This week we are sharing gluten-free ideas, meals, and recipes featuring Blackberries.

Like all summer berries, I am most likely to eat blackberries freshly washed and raw for a tasty snack. But I also like to add them to gluten-free oatmeal, cereal, or yogurt in the morning for breakfast.

I add them to salads, tossed with fresh greens and/or other berries, and drizzled with Poppyseed Dressing or a Balsamic Glaze.

I also found some other great gluten-free recipes for lunch and dinner. And don’t think I forgot about desserts! I found a lot of yummy gluten-free sweets to make with blackberries.

Gluten-Free Meals with Blueberries — Menu Plan June 20

By · Comments (0) · Print This Post Print This Post

BerriesJuneThis month at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap, we are sharing ideas and recipes for using tasty summer berries in our meals. This week, I’m featuring gluten-free Blueberry recipes.

So far this month, we’ve shared gluten-free strawberry recipes and gluten-free raspberry recipes to try.  This week, we’ve found gluten-free blueberry recipes! It’s nice that blueberries are available year round, both frozen and fresh. But summertime, they are more plentiful, cheaper, and maybe a little more flavorful, too.

Blueberries aren’t just for breakfast and dessert. Use them in salads, sauces, and dressings, too. Did I mention smoothies? I love them blended with strawberries, banana, almond milk, pineapple, and ice.

Gluten-Free Raspberries — Menu Plan June 13

By · Comments (0) · Print This Post Print This Post

BerriesJuneThis month at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap, we are sharing ideas and recipes for using the wonderful summer berries in our meals. This week, I’m featuring gluten-free Raspberry recipes.

Last week, we shared links of several gluten-free strawberry recipes to try.  Most of the recipes were for breakfast and sweet treats. This week, I found some gluten-free recipes that use raspberries in savory recipes, too. I can’t wait to give these recipes a try.

This week, I found raspberries on sale — three containers for $5! — so I stocked up. I guess I better use them up fast, or freeze them for later.

Gluten-Free Summer Berries — Menu Plan June 6 Strawberries

By · Comments (2) · Print This Post Print This Post

BerriesJuneThis month at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap, we’ll be sharing ideas and recipes for Berries. This week, I’m featuring gluten-free strawberry recipes.

The berries are bountiful right now. In fact, most of them are on sale right now. I loaded up on them myself this week. And they are sweet! I didn’t even get to wash them before they were gobbled up at my house.

One of the more common ways we eat them with dinner is in a spinach salad tossed with sliced strawberries and avocado, then drizzled with Poppyseed Dressing.

Strawberries dipped in chocolate is another favorite way to eat strawberries at my house. Here are some more yummy gluten-free strawberry treats I found to share with you.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Cakes — Menu Plan May 30

By · Comments (0) · Print This Post Print This Post

Cakes1This Memorial Day begins the final week of our Gluten-Free Cakes theme at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap. I saved the best for last: Gluten-Free Chocolate Cakes.

Just this week, I heard someone say, “everything tastes better gluten-free.” REALLY??? This was a comment from a young teen who doesn’t follow a gluten-free diet. I’ve been hearing those comments for years from young people who say they prefer certain gluten-free products over the usual gluten ones: pretzels, brownies, cookies…. And gluten-free Chocolate Cake may be the most commonly enjoyed. Without the gluten, you’re often left with a very moist, very chocolate, treat. And, if you aren’t used to eating some alternative flours, the chocolate will mask or hide any unfamiliar taste. Here are some very tempting recipes to try.
