bbq cedar plank salmon – you won’t believe how easy this is!

gf and me’s pizza – you’ll never guess it’s gluten free

This pizza crust is incredibly easy to make. The hardest part is waiting for the dough to rise, but when it does the result is a not-too-soft and not-too-hard pizza crust that tastes divine. I know we said before that Gluten Free Pantry’s french bread mix made the best pizza crust ever, but we were wrong. (It happens sometimes…) This recipe – based on our gluten free white bread recipe – results in a lighter crust and has little to none of that gluten free after taste. No having to make sure that every inch of this crust is covered with sauce! In fact, this is the closest to a wheat flour pizza crust that we have eaten so far – and we have eaten many a gluten free pizza. gluten free pizza recipe. gf and me

dark, dark, dark gluten free chocolate cake …. Did I say it was dark?

The next time you feel like chocolate cake – and let’s face it, there WILL be a next time – try this one. Made with 3/4 of a cup of cocoa, it is chocolatey to the point of decadence, and because it’s made with boiling water, it’s also really, really moist. One of those rare gluten free baked items that actually improves with age, this cake will be even better tomorrow, which is a good thing because the recipe makes one big ol’ sheet cake. For those of you who are better at cake decorating than I am (which will be most of you!) this would make a great decorated layer cake.

coconut crust for cream pie

The coconut flour in this recipe gives this crust a wonderful tropical flavour and the texture of a medium-hard cookie more than a classic pie crust. Its hint of coconut pairs wonderfully with coconut, vanilla, or banana custard to make an out-of-this-world cream pie that everyone will love. Coconut pie crust

gf and me’s gluten free white bread

Once you round up the ingredients, this recipe is ridiculously easy and results in a lean, white bread with a soft crumb & a salty light-yet-crispy crust. However, the best part is that it tastes closer to white, wheat-flour bread than anything we’ve tried so far. In fact, it barely has any taste at all. Instead, it doesn’t mind taking a back seat and letting the flavours of whatever you pair it with shine through – just like we believe white bread should do!
