Grilled Corn Salad

I don’t know about you, but many of my friends and family members deal with gluten intolerance and/or Celiac’s Disease. I am constantly being emailed and asked by family, friends and many readers for more gluten-free recipes. You don’t have to have gluten intolerance or Celiac’s to need or want gluten-free recipes, so in honor of all the requests, I am hosting a Gluten-Free Week here on My Kitchen Cafe.

What does that entail?

Firstly, I’ll be posting a recipe every day this week that is gluten-free (I’ve added a new Recipe Category: Gluten Free which I am slowly updating with past recipes). They happen to be recipes I love that fit under the gluten-free umbrella. While I don’t cook gluten-free every day, I’m finding that preparing gluten-free recipes can be delicious and easy!

Secondly, I am giving away two copies of a fantastic new cookbook called Irresistibly Gluten Free, written by a great friend of mine (click on the cute button underneath the Favorites section in the sidebar for more information). Chris is the mother of six children and due to Celiac’s, she cooks and bakes gluten-free every day. This cookbook is filled to the brim with tried-and-true gluten-free recipes. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy because a) I’ve tasted Chris’ cooking and let me tell you, she’s amazing and b) I need to take dinner to a gluten-free family in my neighborhood and this cookbook is going to help me out!

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling me if you have ever made a gluten-free recipe and if so, how you liked it! Winners will be announced Friday morning.

Grilled Corn Salad

This delicious and simple grilled corn salad is my first contribution to Gluten-Free Week. The smokiness of the grilled corn is fantastic with the green onions, warm cumin flavor and hint of butter. Plus, grilling corn is just a lot of fun (see the picture below the recipe). You get to char the heck out of something and not stress about it.

See you tomorrow with another great gluten-free recipe!

Grilled Corn Salad

Grilled Corn Salad

Ingredients

  • 6 ears of corn, still in their husks
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. To prepare the corn, carefully peel back the husk without removing it completely and tear off the silky threads. Gently fold the husk back over the corn. Fill a large bowl or pot with cold water and soak the de-silked corn for 15-30 minutes.
  2. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the corn (still in it’s husk) on the grill and cook the corn, flipping it when each side turns black and charred. The whole grilling process should take about 8-10 minutes (depending on the heat of your grill). The corn husks will get awfully black but don’t worry about that. If you are worried about whether the corn is done, using an oven mitt or something else to protect your hands, pull back the husk and gently cut off a piece of the corn to test it.
  3. When the corn is juicy and cooked, cut the kernels off the cob (again, using an oven mitt or towel to hold the hot corn while you cut off the kernels). Toss the hot corn with the butter. Stir in the cumin, salt, pepper and green onions. Serve immediately.

    I am so very happy to see you adding these recipe to your site. I recently discovered I have a gluten allergy (in addition to my lactose intolerance!) so I’ve been trying lots of new recipes. I’ve always struggled to get enough vegetables in the day so have learned to love my Crock Pot because it’s so easy to make soups and stews with lots of veggies, lean meat and no wheat or noodles. One of my favorites is a Peanut Butter Chicken Vegetable Soup – sounds strange but it’s so delicious that I don’t even miss the crackers!

  2. Lori says:

    This sounds wonderful – can’t wait to try it!
    I have made lots of gluten-free food – 10 members of husbands family have Celiac and a good friend. My favorite recipe is “flourless chocolate torte” – YUM!

  3. Becca says:

    I’m so glad you are doing a week of gluten free cooking! My mom has Celiac disease, so I have definitely done some gluten free cooking. What I have found most surprising over the past few years since she was diagnosed is that there is a multitude of regular food we eat that is gluten free just by its nature. I don’t mind gluten free cooking, but I really hope I don’t end up needing it; I love bread and pasta too much!

  4. pat says:

    Through trial and error, I am realizing that gluten free may be the way I should go…..

  5. Chareese says:

    I suffer from celiac’s disease and in addition to my gluten allergy I also have and allergy of casein which is protein in dairy. I am so excited to see the recipes you will showcase this week. Thank you for thinking of us!!

  6. Lisa E says:

    So excited to see this week’s recipes and to look at the recipes in your new category! I haven’t ever made a gluten-free meal (at least not intentionally or that I’ve realized) so I’m excited to try some.

  7. Michelle says:

    My friend Sara (a self-proclaimed “stalker” of your site!) pointed me your way today – and I’m soooooo glad she did! I’m gluten intolerant (sigh), and so I’ve cooked many a gluten free failures, er, I mean dinners + desserts, etc. Unfortunately, I’m the worst cook ever. EVER. But I try really, really (really) hard. I just can’t seem to get it right. Here. One of my latest culinary disasters: http://andlilymakes3.blogspot.com/2010/07/julia-child-and-paula-deen-yeah-they.html. It’s hard to be me.

  8. Suzanne says:

    I actually started going gluten, dairy, and sugar (refined sugar) free a while ago to cut down on the inflammation I have to help control my chronic pain condition. I have found many wonderful gluten free recipes and learning how to tweak recipes of favorites to be gluten free has made this change a lot easier. For the most part, I have been able to make food that is so tasty that no one would know the difference (I sure don’t)! Plus I love using spices, so this helps a lot in cooking gluten free.

  9. Erica says:

    I never have made a gluten-free meal.. but I’m excited to try :)

  10. Breana Nutter says:

    I love this! There isn’t enough gluten-free recipes or food out and I’m constantly searching for them! Thank you!!!!

  11. Dominique says:

    I have been gluten free & dairy free for about 6 weeks now. I am a wanna be chef and LOVE to cook. The first few weeks I found myself salivating over my little boy’s peanut butter sandwich and practically drooling on the bakery glass at the grocery store! I must admit, however, that it has gotten easier because I feel better. I have become a much more creative cook and have re-created absolutely delicious recipes to prepare for my family and friends…the best part is that they can’t tell the difference and for that matter, neither can I! My motto now is: Don’t look back!

  12. Kate Neale says:

    My favorite gluten free recipe is a peanut butter cookie recipe! So simple, and my husbands most favorite cookies in the world!

  13. Morgan says:

    I have never intentionally made a gluten-free meal but would love to learn and try some great recipes!

  14. Scoggdog says:

    My favorite “gluten-free” recipe has to be flowerless chocolate, walnut cookies…SO GOOD!

  15. Brye says:

    I have never made gluten free but have been interested in it a lot!!

  16. Jenn Elison says:

    My grandma has to eat gluten free and I’m always looking for new recipes. It’s great that there is such an awareness out there these days. Thank you for adding to my (at present small) collection of gluten free recipes! And by the way, I absolutely love all of your recipes. This site is the first place I go when I want to try something new or for many that I now consider favorites!

  17. Cindy Hobson says:

    I found out that I had sprue (a type of celiacs disease) 25 years ago after the birth of my 3rd child. They had NO good recipes then and nothing you could buy at the store. With the rage of the Adkins diet, followed by many more, you can buy gluten free products everywhere. I learned to eat spaghetti sauce on rice or baked potatoes. With 7 kids eventually, it was easier to go without then to make special for me. Bring on those gluten free recipes, I’m ready to treat myself.

  18. Gay Deats says:

    My friend, who is constantly surfing for great recipes, sent me the link to your site. I have found that eating gluten free has relieved my discomfort from Crohns so welcome any new recipes. I accidently invented my new favorite recipe last week. With a bounty of zuchini from our garden, I was craving our tried and true casserole. I substituted chedder flavored rice crackers for the saltines in the recipe and WOW! I think it tasted better than the old version. Thanks for “Gluten Free Week”, I’ll be bookmarking this site!!

  19. Whitney says:

    I’ve made several gluten free recipes. They have all turned out looking and tasting great! I don’t have a specific need to cook gluten free but I find that I prefer the way some things taste when made that way. :)

  20. Stacy says:

    I make gluten free meals everyday because I am gluten and dairy intolerant… so I would DEFINITELY use and love such a cookbook!

  21. Ashli says:

    I have never tried to make a gluten-free meal, but I have a friend whose 2 year old must have a gluten-free diet, and I would love to give this cookbook to her. I know it’s hard for her to make food that he can, and wants to eat.

  22. kyle says:

    I am sure I have made a gluten-free meal…but I probably did it without trying! But in an effort to eat healthy I am looking for more recipes :)

  23. Heather H. says:

    I would love this cookbook! I have been looking into cooking and eating gluten free for awhile now but just don’t know where to begin!

  24. Judy Baldauff says:

    So happy to see gluten free recipes! I have made brownies and followed my old recipe, but used rice flour instead of wheat flour, and nobody could tell the difference!

  25. Luci H says:

    I haven’t really made anything just because it’s gluten free, but I have had good intentions of baking with coconut flour (it smells delish) and there’s a recipe for sugar cookies using that instead of all purpose flour. I can’t wait to try them and bought the flour awhile ago.

  26. Well Mom says:

    We have multiple members of my extended family that have Celiac Disease. We are always trying new recipes to feed them when we get together. Two of my favorites are Brownies made with black beans (seriously, it really is good) and Coconut Pistachio pie (the crust is made with the coconut). I was able to attend a cooking class by Chris, and fell in love with her cookbook. I couldn’t believe how great her donuts, waffles and cinnamon rolls tasted. And they weren’t grainy like some of the other mixes are. Thanks to both of you for helping us cook for our GF families.

  27. Jenna says:

    Everything I make is gluten-free. My husband is a Celiac with a rice intolerance and I have a gluten and soy intolerance. My favorite thing to make are gluten-free cookies or cakes. On the list today are coconut-lime sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies.

  28. G. says:

    YAY! I make gluten-free recipes every day because I have Celiac Disease. I’m still adjusting to the baking but, the cooking is really easy. I just stick to fruits, veggies, rice, potatoes- you have to watch out for some of the spices, though. Those sometimes contain gluten. There’s more to eat than people think! I am really looking forward to your recipes this week. I actually made your coconut oatmeal chewies for my family and they LOVED them. I know they are not gluten-free but, they raved so much about them, I’m going to try to adapt it so I can try them, too! Thanks again.

  29. Renee says:

    I love to make gluten free peanut butter cookies made w/ peanut butter, an egg and sugar or splenda. I also make gluten free coconut macaroons w/ coconut, sweetened condensed milk and egg whites.

  30. Erin says:

    I’ve never made anything gluten free (on purpose), but I would love to learn. I have two neighbors that have Celiac’s, and it’s tricky when we have them over for dinner.

  31. mary says:

    i cook gluten free every day and am always looking for new and different recipes. The red berry risotto oatmeal looks delicious.

  32. Denissa says:

    I haven’t made a recipe, but would love to! My best friend’s son was recently diagnosed w/ several allergies and gluten bieng one so I would love to give the book to her.
    Thanks!

  33. Hannah says:

    I have been gluten free for over two years now and have actually learned to LOVE baking gluten free! I have a FANTASTIC bread recipie that includes a cup of almond meal (just grind almonds in a coffee grinder) that turns out great every time.

    Also, I love the new Betty Crocker gluten free mixes. I actually just made the chocolate brownies and added a cup of zuchini and a cup of chocolate chips to it to immitate a chocolate zuchini cake my mom used to make. Yum!

  34. Hollie says:

    My sister recently got me hooked on your blog a few weeks ago. You have super yummy recipes. I was surprised and happy to see that today you have made reference to gluten-free cooking. My husband is gluten intolerant. So I am constantly searching for and making gluten free recipes all of the time. One of our family’s favorite gluten free recipes is a sugar cookie recipe that is “better than gluten-full sugar cookies” according to everyone who tries them. Now I have even more of a reason to follow your blog knowing that I can have access to some yummy gluten-free recipes. Thanks!

  35. Lori says:

    Haven’t made anything gf yet but we are just starting this journey with my granddaughter. We are looking for easy school lunches for her and searching the internet on all and anything gf.

  36. Lizzie says:

    My husband and I are both gluten intolerant. I love to bake so it was a little depressing to discover. I bake gluten free fairly frequently. My most recent discovery is gluten free bread. I forgot how much I loved a peanut butter and jelly sanwhich!

  37. Suzy says:

    I’ve never tried one…but I’d like to!

  38. Yvette says:

    No, I haven’t ever consiously made a gluten-free recipe, but I have family members that are gluten intolerant….

  39. Rachel says:

    We just recently found out that my 4 yr old son has celiac disease. A friend of mine told me about your special gluten free week and cookbook giveaway. We are looking for some yummy recipes for our family as we begin this change in our diet. Thanks for having a gluten free week!! Looking forward to trying out these recipes.

  40. Becca says:

    I was diagnosed with Celiac in February. I have been on an almost constant quest for any gluten free meal that I can eat with my family. Sometimes I am successful, others not so much. I have learned I have to go back to cooking from scratch (not always an easy feat with my lifestyle). A friend sent me to your site. Thanks for sharing more options for me to try with my family!

  41. Sarah C says:

    My daughter is gluten sensitive, so I have been making more. It’s a little hard to get used to (a lot of gluten free bread products have a sweetness I don’t care for personally) but some recipes have been super yummy!

  42. Jenn says:

    I’d love a copy of that cookbook… I need to cook gluten-free for my son. Thanks – Looking forward to your recipes this week.

  43. Michelle says:

    What could be better than my favorite recipe blog posting gluten-free recipes AND giving away a book I’ve got on my wishlist! I’ve loved your blog for years and just last month found out I have celiac disease. I’m slowly adapting my recipes to be gluten-free. Your sweet & sour chicken recipe is my favorite, and by just using a gluten-free ketchup and soy sauce it is easily made gluten-free.
    This past week I’ve been experimenting with gluten-free chocolate chip cookies.
    I’m starting a new blog with my gluten-free recipes, hopefully starting to post soon: http://michellesglutenfreebaking.blogspot.com/

  44. Sook says:

    Ooh what a great corn salad recipe. The grilled corn sounds so good. :) I’ve never really tried cooking gluten free food but I’ve been hearing a lot about it lately. Sounds like a great book!

  45. orchid says:

    I have been eating gluten free now for four years. I developed a rocking recipe for lasagna. Not only do I use gluten free noodles but due to a cow milk allergy I make my own goats milk ricotta. Yum

  46. Es says:

    My husband has a bunch of dietary limits beyond gluten. He doesn’t handle soy, or cheese very well, among other foods. That’s why I’m glad I found out about vegan rice cheese – no gluten, no soy, no “real” cheese!

  47. Barbara says:

    I tried to make a sponge cake with rice flour for a friend who has an intolerance to gluten and it’s quite well! Thanks for the chance!

  48. lacey says:

    My BIL has celiac, so I have tried quite a few gluten and dairy free recipes– sandwich bread, cinnamon rolls, breadsticks, banana bread. I would love the cookbook!

  49. Andrea Blakesberg says:

    my son and I have just started eating gluten-free for the past 2 months… the change in me is amazing… no more headaches! …my son is still struggling with what to eat… all of his usual stand-bys are not available anymore… as for recipes… been eating lots of rice and beans :)

  50. Emilee says:

    Ooo, I am so excited for this giveaway! My sister-in-law is gluten free and I often try new recipes that she can enjoy during our family dinners. My most recent success is your sweet and sour chicken. I love that you use cornstarch instead of flour.

  51. Amber Lavin says:

    My boss is gluten free and awhile back I made these gluten-free brownies for her that I found on a blog and they were DELICIOUS! They tasted amazing and had the perfect brownie texture, which was something I was a little hesitant about. To say the least I’ve been making gluten-free brownies ever since!

    I have enough friends and family that are gluten-free that this cookbook would most definitely be used in my kitchen!

  52. Janell says:

    I have a sister in law that has Celiac’s. She came over for dinner one night while we were having spaghetti so I cooked up some gluten free noodles for her…I’m thinking they were made with corn. That’s probably the only time I’ve intentionally cooked something gluten free (although I’ve eaten some of her gluten free cooking!)

  53. Francine Waltman says:

    I have Celiac disease. I’ve been on a gluten free diet for 10 years now and I’m always looking for great new recipes to try. This week, I made a chicken primavera pie recipe which was absolutely yummy! The best test is whether my two kids- ages 10 and 14- will eat it. This recipe passed the test. I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll win the cookbook and find more great recipes to try! Thanks for adding gf recipes to your website. We appreciate it!

  54. Nicole says:

    Yes, I’ve made gluten free recipes, and definitely liked them. I know a lot of people with celiac’s disease as well. Great idea to have a gluten-free week, thanks!

  55. Chavah says:

    Hi, we make gluten-free pancakes all the time and they turn out yummy. We don’t have Celiac’s, but my son is sensitive to wheat/dairy, so making alternatives for his favorites helps out a lot. We’ve also make gluten-free cookies and they turned out just okay. I would love to have a recipe book like that to help me make better gluten free meals for my son. My best girlfriend in our neighborhood has Celiac’s and I would love to make treats for her that I knew would be tasty!

  56. Kriten W says:

    I recently made Black Bean Brownies that were gluten free (and vegan too!). Since they had beans I got to eat them without feeling guilty!

  57. Jessica says:

    Honestly can’t say that I’ve tried making a glutten free recipe…I’ve never really known where to start. But I would love to learn more about them!

  58. Kelsey says:

    I made one of my friends a flourless chocolate cake for her birthday because her mom has a gluten allergy. Her mom LOVED it and was so grateful that she could finally have cake at a birthday party. It is an extremely dense and chocolatey cake and you don’t even miss the flour! Here is the recipe:
    Flourless Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce
    1 cup butter
    8 oz semisweet choc chips
    1 1/4 cups sugar
    1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    6 large eggs

    Pregheat oven to 350. Butter 10-inch springform pan. Line bottom with waxed paper. Stir butter and chocolate in heavey large saucepan over low heat until melted. mix sugar and cocoa in large bowl.Add eggs; whisk until well blended. Whisk in chocolate -butter mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool cake completely in pan on rack. Run knife around pan sides to loosen cake. Release pan sides. Cover and refrigerate.

    Caramel Sauce
    1 1/2 cugs sugar
    1/4 cup water
    1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
    1 cup whipping cream
    2 Tbsp butter

    Stir sugar, water, and lemon juice in heavey medium saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat; boil without stirring until syrup is deep amber color, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat. Add in cream (mixture will bubble vigorously). Return to low heat; stir until any bits of caramel dissolve. Add butter, whisk until smooth. Cover and chill.

  59. Sarah says:

    About half of my husband’s family is allergic to wheat, so when we all get together, we always cook gluten-free, and surprisingly, it’s really good! We recently made a pasta salad with brown rice noodles and it was filled with tons of grilled veggies. Yummy! The noodles hardly tasted different. They also eat a lot more rice and things like taco salad and fajitas with corn tortillas.

  60. Camille says:

    A good friend of mine has Celiac and we eat out and cook together quite often. We have made some really yummy Mexican style meals using corn tortillas or tortilla chips.

  61. Reyna says:

    We went gluten free in our house for about 6 months while trying to determine some health issues with our son. It definitely required some creativity, but we found lots of delicious new methods of cooking. It was a culinary challenge I’m glad we had. Even now we still opt for a lot of gluten-free things, so I’m always happy to see more recipes. Thanks!

  62. Jenny Brumfield says:

    My 3 year old son has diabetes and celiac disease, and I am always looking for gluten free recipes that are healthy and that a toddler will eat! I can’t wait to check out the cookbook!

  63. Annette says:

    I have a nephew with celiac disease and would love to win this cook book. I always struggle what to make when we have family over for dinner. Thanks!

  64. Stephanie says:

    I made flourless peanut butter cookies – the BEST ever!!

  65. Jessica says:

    A friend of mine just found out that she has Celiac disease so now I’m on the hunt for recipes to share with her. This is so awesome that you’re sharing all of these! Thank you!

  66. Erin says:

    I haven’t made a gluten free recipe before but my brother in law has celiac’s and his wife cooks gluten free meals. So this would be great for them.

  67. One of my YW was on a gluten free diet and I found a recipe for some delicious gluten free strawberry shortcakes. I made them for dessert one night to enjoy after an activity and my YW was thrilled. I was really suprised at how yummy these were (recipe on my blog) and have made them several times since.

  68. Atzimba says:

    We love, absolutely love having the quinoa porridge we came up with, for breakfast. It’s super delicious, easy to make, and it’s gf. One of my girls does better ( no skin rashes) with gf foods. So we are always on the look to make it easier for her body.

  69. Amie says:

    My mom and sister follow a gluten free diet……and my mom is a vegetartian. It’s such a challenge for her that I’m always looking for recipes that she can try. I’ve made many….cookies, tacos, salads…etc.

  70. Becky says:

    I’ve never tried gluten-free recipes, but I have a few friends that are gluten-free. This cookbook looks amazing and I would love to share it with them!

  71. Jessica says:

    I had a co worker who ate gluten free. I made her brownies for a staff luncheon. I just used a pre packaged mix that I found at Whole Foods. They weren’t bad…they weren’t my idea of a great brownie though :)

  72. Crystal says:

    I probably have, and didn’t know it. I really just started noticing much about the gluten free thing, when my father in law started eating that way. My mom in law made a gluten free pie for him and it really was good. I would love to give them this cookbook!

  73. Jeanette says:

    My 9 year old son was just diagnosed with celiac disease last month. I feel like I have traveled to a foreign galaxy and entered an alien world as I struggle to get a grip on our new reality before the birth of our sixth child next month. It is so nice to hear from people who are dealing with the same thing. It is even nicer to see so many yummy and healthy recipes reminding me that we can still eat good food. Thanks so much for your help.

  74. Jill M says:

    My mom is gluten free. She makes yummy tacos with corn tortillas.

  75. Stacie says:

    My sister and her hubby have been doing gluten-free lately because of stomach issues. She makes some amazing banana bread- probably the best I’ve ever had, and there’s no gluten in it! If I win, I think I will definitely be sharing this cookbook with her! Thanks :)

  76. Maria says:

    My cousin has celiac’s so when she comes to visit, I try to make things that she can eat. Once, I tried to make brownies with black beans…yuck. Now, I just buy her some gluten-free snacks at the store and make real brownies for the rest of us:)

  77. Skye says:

    I have never made a gluten-free recipe so far. I have recently fallen in love -and mildly obsessed- with looking up new recipes and trying them out. I have eyed a few gluten-free ones, but haven’t gotten around to any of them yet. I would love to try some soon though! Thanks for sharing this salad recipe :)

  78. Summer says:

    Every once in a while I like to give my family systems a gluten brake. I feel like I am re-inventing the wheel each time though. A cookbook for such things would be great. I will check out your friends site. Thanks for these interesting options.

  79. Kelsey Jepsen says:

    I know you’ve probably closed this- but I couldn’t help but add on. My mother in law has celiac- and this recipe is her substitute for BBQ sauce. Which you can add in everything from meatloaf- to baked beans.
    3 C catsup
    1 1/4 C brown sugar
    3 Tbspn liquid smoke
    1/2 Tspn cayan pepper
    1 1/2 tspn celery seed
    mix together in pan on stove till sugar melts.
    Enjoy!!

  80. Elise Capener says:

    I have celiac disease, and am fairly new at it..8 months and counting. It’s a struggle everyday. I basically modify all my recipes that I have previously cooked that are my favorites. So it’d be really cool to have a cookbook that is dedicated for gluten-free items so I’m not substituting.

    Thanks for doing this! Below is a favorite of mine.. I just replace it with GF flour (namaste..you should add this to any recipe you use) and it’s probably the tastiest GF thing out there. I would eat it for dessert in a heartbeat. It’s my sister-in-law’s recipe.

    http://youandmeglutenfree.blogspot.com/2010/07/puffy-german-pancakes.html

  81. Lisa says:

    Well I knew I loved this site. My daughter just tested positive for celiac disease with Down syndrome and juvenile diabetes you can imagine how overwhelmed I feel. It’s been a hard week accepting this. I just hopped on to catch up on your site after being out of town and was pleasantly surprised with the gf recipes. You have no idea how much it helped my broken heart, I feel a little more hope that we can still have a somewhat normal life. Thanks for such a fun website, I need to get my hands on that cookbook-thanks for the tip.

    Lisa

  82. Lisa says:

    8 weeks ago I discovered I have allergies to wheat, gluten, dairy, yeast. I am slowly re-learning to cook gluten/dairy/wheat free. I would love a cookbook to help with ideas.

  83. wizardnita says:

    Why yes, I have, a “nian goa”, a Chinese type of “cake” that was steamed, and made with glutinous flour

  84. Lily says:

    I actually have not made a gluten-free recipe as of yet, but if I win this cookbook, I know that I will try something new!

  85. Heidi says:

    I was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease and Dermatitis Herpetiformis. I have tried just a handful of recipes. Trying to adjust to the texture of things.

  86. Karen C. says:

    I have a friend with fibromyalgia that is having good success when eating gluten free (she just recently was told to try it). I would love to be able to make some things that are delicious and also something we can share. I think my family and I would benefit from trying more gluten free recipes.

  87. Andrea B says:

    While my son doesn’t have celiac disease, he is glutton intolerant and so we’ve had to adjust his meals to accommodate the issue. My favorite gluten-free meal is pesto quinoa pasta…. my repertoire is REALLY limited, I would love the opportunity to find some tried and true recipes that have been tested and found to be EASY to make and yummy for a picky eater… our biggest problem is how to eat outside the house when rice isn’t an option on the menu… would love any suggestions (other than bringing my own food)

    Many of my friends are gluten intolerant so I like to make sure when hosting a party that I accommodate those restrictions. It is so much fun trying out new recipes. My favorite is making all kinds of cookies!

    As far as I KNOW, we don’t have any gluten problems in our family. Hopefully we never do. I have not make a gluten free meal intentionally…perhaps unwittingly. It seems like a lot of work (and expense?) but I guess one learns to do it efficiently.
    I’m not a picky eater at all but I’m not sure I would enjoy gluten free alternatives as much.

    That cookbook looks amazing! Most gluten-free baking recipes that I have tried have not been all that good—-always something lacking. I would love to have the cookbook especially for that reason. Thank you for all your recipes, Mel….the grilled corn salad is YUMMY!

    I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease nearly 4 years ago. Ive learned alot and am still learning new cooking methods all the time. I tried making your Firecracker Chicken a few nights ago… and it was amazing. My fiance said it was better than any take out. And Im fairly certain both kids didnt say a word, as they were shoveling their food in. We had leftover the next night and then I had to make it again two nights later:) This time with Franks Extra Hot Sauce and a few dashes of red pepper flakes. We like things HOT :) Cant wait to try another one of your recipes!
