Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Pigs in a Blanket

pigs in a blanket

AKA Here, Piggy Piggy

Rip, rip, rip, WHACK, pop. That familiar sound of opening the cardboard canister of crescent-roll dough to make pigs in blankets. So easy, so salty, so delicious. Before I was diagnosed with celiac disease, pigs in blankets were an easy party treat. Something simple to make when my girlfriends came over for a Saturday afternoon movie marathon. Easy to bake in shifts when the game went into overtime and the guys needed snacks. Or something to nosh on and reminisce about as a favorite childhood hors d’oeuvre when having friends over for a dinner party.

Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Pasta Bolognese

Gluten-Free Pasta Bolognese
AKA It’s Like You’re in Big Night and You’re Cooler Than Stanley Tucci

I’m kind of obsessed with the movie Big Night. I’ve loved it since before I began writing about food and thinking about the role food plays in our lives. All the cooking, all the rushing around, the loud mouths and big stomachs, and that huge meal at the end that rendered everyone nearly unconscious: I’ve always wanted to host a dinner like that. The closest I’ve ever gotten is with pasta and Bolognese (I’ll save the timpano and the other 40 courses for another day).
