Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Pear Tart

AKA Nothing Com-pears to You Pears are the unsung heroes of fall. Everyone at the farmers market last weekend was all, “Oooohhh, apples this and apples that.” Fine. Let ‘em try and outdo each other with “Honeycrisp is better than Jonagold, but for baking it’s all about Mutsu.” That keeps them away from the best fruit […]

Dinner Rush! Creamy Rigatoni with Squash, Sage and Pine Nuts

Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Apple Pie

AKA THE APPLE OF MY PIE My great-uncle Richard used to own acres and acres of orchards in Pennsylvania, and I fondly remember picking apples for him after school. I’d climb up the rickety, old ladder, an apple basket in hand, and shimmy out onto a branch to pull ripe fruit from the tree limbs. […]

AKA My Baby Takes the Mornin’ Train  When you have celiac, it can be difficult to find food on the go that’s safe to eat for any meal during the day. In the morning I am a major bigtime crankypants, and I want something delicious to snack on (and also to absorb the insane amount […]

Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Pizza Recipe

AKA Pizza to Make Your Doorbell Ring I’m a big Gilmore Girls fan, but nothing bums me out more on that show than when Lorelai and Rory order pizza.
