Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

AKA Let Me Eat Cake A few years ago, a fashion designer made a canvas handbag emblazoned with the words “Eat Cake for Breakfast.” Really? It seemed so targeted toward those ladies who only saw Sex and the City for the first time in syndication on basic cable and thought they were so cool drinking […]

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 […]

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. […]

Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Granola Muffins

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. Diagnosed with celiac just as the show went into syndication (and the weekend marathon watching commenced), I still get super-sad when the gals of Stars Hollow […]

Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Corn Chowder

AKA A Big Old Bowl of Love   Corn may seem meant for summer barbecues, but in my house, my mom would blanch and freeze all the sweet, juicy kernels to have throughout the fall and winter as succotash, casseroles and soups. Of the many options, I most looked forward to corn chowder: thick and creamy, […]

Dinner Rush! Quick Cauliflower Curry

In the fast-paced, cutthroat world of trendsetting foods, one industry veteran has managed to stay the course through it all. While sprouts, kale and juices may come and go with the seasons, the mighty cauliflower has managed to keep its head high and its florets robust through the storm. 

Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Tomato-Feta Tart

AKA Who You Callin’ a Tart?  Oh Yeah, This. Late summer is my favorite time of year, and it all goes by too quickly, with its lazy weekends, marathon gab sessions (with bonus day drinking!), birthday cake with too many candles, beautiful sunsets, and farmers markets exploding with gorgeous colors and flavors. August is just […]

Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Peach Pie

AKA Everything’s Just Peachy This is the very first pie I made after being diagnosed with celiac disease. It’s fruity and sweet, but ginger and a bit of cracked black pepper give it the tiniest of kicks. I grew up eating fruit pies my uncle made in his bakery, or that my mom made at home. […]

Beat the Wheat: Gluten-Free Blackberry-Nectarine Crumble

AKA Stone Fruit Summer Lovin’ There is something so special about that first weekend at the farmers market when stone fruit and berries are at their best. Forget the solstice; nectarines and blackberries at the farmers market means summer is officially here.
