Gluten-Free Fudge Cookies

This time, last year, I was just getting started down the Low-FODMAP road, trying to see how it might help (or not) my IBS. Considering it was the holidays, I was a little bummed about missing out on holiday goodies and picked up a copy of the Favorite Brand Name 3-in-1 Gluten-Free Cookbook at an […]

Recipe | Low-FODMAP Graham Crackers

If you follow this blog’s cocktail companion, Sips & Shots, you already know that this past Saturday was National S’mores Day, and since 1/3 (or maybe even a full half!) of a s’more is the graham crackers, what’s a low-FODMAPer to do but make their own! While I could look for a pre-existing gluten-free graham […]

Baking the Low-FODMAP Way

As someone who very much enjoys cookies, cakes and other confections (I was a pastry chef, after all) this whole no wheat thing really had me concerned–especially when so many gluten-free baked goods are gritty or crumbly or just plain miss the mark.

Thankfully (though I consider it a bit of a double-edged […]

Gluten Free for All

Gluten Free for All Gluten free seems to be the new buzz words in food trends. I have to wonder why so many people suffer from gluten allergies and celiac disease. What is different today vs. 10 or 20 years go? Is it the water? Pesticides? High fructose corn syrup? Preservatives? Fortunately, not only are […]

Food allergy, food intolerance, gluten free recipes

Image via Wikipedia These days everyone seems to have some kind of food allergy or food intolerance. What’s the difference? A food allergy can be life threatening while a food intolerance can make you feel uncomfortable. The Mayo Clinic is far better at explaining it. I recently had a food intolerance to tarragon. Now the […]
