Gluten Free Orange Chicken Recipe


If you miss Chinese restaurant take out then you should definitely try this orange chicken recipe. Not even Panda Express can beat this homemade version.

I think Chinese take out was one of the little luxuries I missed the most after going gluten free. My husband and I never really liked to spend a lot of money going out to dinner but would treat ourselves to Chinese or a pizza every once in a while.

What is not to love about a date night in eating some yummy food, snuggling up on the couch and watching a movie.

Being a foodie I knew I couldn’t just give up my favorite recipes. But come on who has made ever made orange chicken from scratch before? I bet if I polled all my friends I would be the only one. So one day I was casually strolling the aisles of my local grocery store when I came across a bottle of La Choy Orange Ginger Sauce…and it was labeled gluten free. I thought this could work! La Choy also makes gluten free soy sauce, teriyaki and sweet and sour.

This is an easy orange chicken recipe that is just as good as any Chinese restaurant. Oh happy dance. This is a more spicy and flavorful then the overly sweet recipes for orange chicken. Yumm!

Gluten Free Apple Cider Doughnuts


For my family fall always includes a trip to the apple cider mill. Seriously I can smell the doughnuts down the street. Yumm. People line up for hot fresh cider and of course they have soft fluffy apple cider doughnuts for sale.  Life is too short not to indulge yourself once in a while and I hate missing out on things just because I can’t have gluten. So I decided to make my own gluten free apple cider doughnuts and the recipe is now a favorite.

gluten-free-apple-cider-doughnutsThese gluten free apple cider donuts have a yummy cinnamon sugar topping and are made with reduced apple cider and delicious spices. I kept things simple and didn’t do a traditional doughnut recipe with yeast. But you don’t miss it. The apple cider, buttermilk and spices take the traditional cake doughnut to the next level and these are so good you won’t be apple to stop eating them.

If you are looking for fun recipe for company or guest this is perfect. This is quick and easy to make and you don’t have to wait hours for the dough to rise or chill. Who doesn’t love homemade donuts?

Gluten Free Cake Recipes (and cupcakes)


There are so many times in life when cake is a big part of the celebration. Weddings, birthdays, graduations or a Tuesday night. Okay maybe  I just eat cake by myself on a Tuesday.

Either way there is no reason to be left out just because you are gluten free. Everyone can have a delicious slice thanks to all these amazing gluten free cake recipes from my fellow bloggers.

Here are a few baking tips to help:

Butter, eggs, and milk should be at room temperature- take out of the fridge a half hour before baking, leave ingredients out no longer then an hour.

Remember that most gluten free baked goods don’t last as long as regular baked goods, make your cake a day or two before an event to ensure freshness.

Don’t mix too much!  Many gluten free flour blends contain xanthan gum if you overmix xanthan gum it can result in a gummy texture.

Hope these tips help, now let’s get to baking.

Gluten Free Gingersnap Cookies


It has been forever since I made a gingersnap cookie. Whenever I make gluten free cookies for my family I normally make chocolate chip or sugar cookies.  Recently I decided to switch things up and make gluten free gingersnaps. I tend to only make these around Christmas or Thanksgiving, I don’t know why because they are yummy regardless of the season.

This recipe is so delicious. The cookies have just the right amount of spice and are so soft and chewy they literally melt in your mouth. When I asked my husband if he liked gingersnaps he said maybe I am not really sure. Well after I got done baking them I had to cut him off and force him out of the kitchen.

One of the best parts of this gluten free gingersnap recipe is that it makes around 50 cookies! Perfect for traditional holiday cookies, cookie exchanges or school parties. I love that you get so many cookies from only two cups of flour.

gluten-free-gingersnapsThese are so much better then any store bought gingersnaps. I have used some store bought cookies before to make a gluten free gingersnap pie crust and they were nowhere near as flavorful. These melt in your mouth with the perfect amount of molasses, spices and sweetness.

Baking can scare people and I get that but don’t worry this recipe is easy to make and is pretty foolproof.

Enough talking-time for baking your gluten free gingersnaps!


2 cups Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

12 tablespoons salted butter (at room temperature)

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup molasses

1/4 cup sugar for dusting cookies before baking [Read more...]
