Martha Stewart pumpkin tart - de-glutened

Recently, I made the pumpkin tart on a chocolate crust from Martha Stewart's Oct. 2009 magazine. I simply subbed the cup of all purpose flour for a cup of Bob's Red Mill gluten-free all-purpose flour and everything else stayed the same. It came out beautifully!

I didn't take my own pics, but this blog entry has the recipe and pics that look very similar to what I made.

The tart was a big hit with my guests and there were several surprised remarks of "This is gluten free?"

Genral Mills Fruit Snacks are gluten-free

I recently received a very generous package of Genral Mills Fruit Snacks to try. They were just as I remembered as a kid, quite sweet and tangy. While my tastes have changed, it's good to know these kid-friendly, grab-and-go treats are still available to the gluten intolerant.

Easy, delicious gluten-free biscuit mix

This past weekend I whipped up a batch of these 1 2 3 Southern Glory Biscuits. They are delicious. At first, I was concerned because the dough was really wet, but I rolled it out carefully one biscuit at a time and used corn starch to keep the dough from sticking. They looked like little hockey pucks after I chilled them, but in the oven they baked up light and flaky. Well, as light and flaky as possible considering they are gluten-free.

Still, two gluten-eating friends sampled them and also found them quite yummy. I froze most of them and have eaten one thawed biscuit and it was good as well! This is a very exciting resource to have in the pantry. I got mine at the Bedford Kroger.

Wild Grape Bistro in Salt Lake City

This past weekend I feasted at the Wild Grape Bistro in Salt Lake City. I had found it listed as gluten-free friendly on Urbanspoon.com so I went to check it out. The food was fantastic and my server really worked with me to make sure everything was safe.

They have a good variety of dishes, all of them very flavorful. The gluten-eaters at the table enjoyed their food as well.
