Gluten Free Almond Roca

I wish I could photograph the crunch and the sweet toffee goodness of this almond roca – not to mention the buttery caramel scent of my kitchen at the moment! This candy is easy to make – it takes about an hour – and tastes like the real thing. You can add chocolate if you want, but we like it just like this!

slow cooker roast beef – makes an amazing gf beef dip!

slow cooker roast beefSomething about January makes me want to pull out the ol’ slow cooker. Maybe its the cold temperatures, the need for comfort food, or just that I’m a bit tired of cooking all those elaborate holiday meals and just want something waiting for me at the end of the day. Whatever the reason, one of the first recipes I haul out of my recipe box after Christmas is “slow cooker roast beef.”

Born out of desperation, this dish has become one of our all-time favorites. B.C. (before celiac disease), one of Geoff’s favorite things to order when we went out for lunch was a beef dip sandwich. After his diagnosis, he went for years without those salty, juicy, meaty and chewy sandwiches. Then we discovered Udi’s Baguettes and decided to tackle a gluten free beef dip sandwich using the slow cooker. The slow cooked roast beef is really good on its own – nicely browned and full of beef flavour – which is why we are posting it as its own recipe. Give it a try – and if you have any leftovers, we highly recommend the beef dip! The jus is salty and savory with just a bit of spice. (Scroll down or click on ‘continue reading’ for the recipe.)

gluten free and dairy free sandwich bread – it’s awesome!

gluten free sandwich bread

We love our crusty breads but we have been searching for a really great recipe for gf sandwich bread. Then Geoff’s massage therapist – the BEST massage therapist – told him about this recipe she’d found on the Gluten Free Real Food website. IT IS FANTASTIC! The crust is crusty but not hard and the crumb is soft and malleable with lots of good air pockets. It produces a good size loaf (bigger than our old bakery wheat bread), slices thin or thick, freezes well and can be lightly thawed in the microwave. Oh, and it tastes great too – sweet, salty, and a bit nutty. As for shelf life, it’s still good on day two and just starts to lose its flavour and fluff on day three – not bad for a no preservative bread of any kind!
