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.

Gluten-Free Sugar-Free Cakes — Menu Plan May 23

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

Cakes1Cakes is the theme at the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this month. This week, I’m exploring gluten-free cake recipes that are also free of refined sugar. I’ve been taking sugar out of my diet this year, and have found that I feel so much better with just an occasional indulgence of sweet foods.

After being off of the sugar addiction for a few months, I just don’t need as much of it to satisfy my sweet tooth. So when I started looking at cake recipes, I wanted to try some that aren’t using so much sugar. It seems easy enough to use alternative sweeteners, but using a tried and proven yummy recipe is even better. 🙂 I found some very tempting recipes to try. None of them use refined sugar. I’ve noted if they use alternative sweeteners.
