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

Roasted Sweet Orange Chicken

roasted sweet orange chickenMarinated in a honey-orange marinade, this chicken comes out of the oven soft, tender, and juicy.  The zest in the marinade really adds the flavour of  oranges to the dish which also has a hint of spice from the chili pepper and sweetness from the honey.  Goes well with a tossed salad, or for something heartier, pair it with rice.

mary’s marvelous cream puffs – gluten free has never been so delicate!

Looking for a light and delicate yet quick and easy dessert? Try these delicately crisp-on-the-outside and oh-so-creamy-in-the-middle cream puffs. Serve them with Greek yogurt and fresh fruit at brunch or with whipped cream or whipped coconut milk, powdered sugar, and a drizzle of chocolate for a special dessert. To be truly decadent, try serving them with Food Mouth’s Whipped Nutella Fluff – WOW!

Cream PuffMy mom came across this recipe on a box of rice flour decades ago and has been making them ever since. They look like they took a French chef all day to prepare but are astonishingly easy to make and ready to eat in under an hour.

This is a re-post of an early recipe on “gf and me.” We made them the other day for a special birthday party, and they were so good we figured we’d share it again for all of those who have started following us since.

Serve with sliced banana and the best maple syrup you can find. We have been using syrup from L.B. Maple Treat in St. Robert Bellarmin, Quebec, since we were given a bottle of their single press maple syrup for Christmas two years ago. Thanks again to our anonymous gift giver!

gf and me’s cowboy chili con carne

Chili is one of our favorite meals and happily it’s usually gluten free. This recipe is our own version. Full of chili pepper flavour, it’s still fairly mild, but you can spice it up as much as you want by adding more cayenne pepper. We always make a double batch and freeze the leftovers in single serving containers. It’s even better reheated—making it a great choice for lunches or a quick work night dinner.


Chili is loaded with protein and lycopene, an antioxidant. Even better, it provides lots of fibre and iron, two things that are often hard to come by when you are on a gluten free diet.
