these are good. Gluten eaters will like them. If you are going to share any food, take yours first. Or easier, just bring a separate portion for yourself that you keep away from gluteny fingers and crumbs.

These are a few that I have handy:

Banana Split Cheesecake

Ingredients:

2 packages no-bake cheese cake mix (Throw away the crust and create your own with Gluten Free Graham Crackers/cookies or just omit the crust altogether)

This coffeecake was outstanding and it did not need refrigeration:

I used extra dark brown sugar for the topping and did not have any nuts. It was probably my favorite gluten-free dessert ever. Right up there with Pumpkin Bars.

Here's a nice summer dessert:

Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

3/4 cup gluten-free pretzels

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup melted butter

crush pretzels to pieces about 1/4 inch maximum

mix together

press into bottom of greased 8 X 8 inch pan

bake 350 F for about 7 minutes

cool about 1 hour

4 oz cream cheese

1/4 cup sugar

8-9 oz Cool Whip

whip cream cheese and sugar together until fluffy

fold in Cool Whip (add more to taste if you want)

spread across pretzel layer (save a little for garnish if desired)

refrigerate 15 minutes or longer

1 small package strawberry Jello

1 cup hot water

1 large package frozen strawberries (without juice)

or sliced fresh strawberries - about 1/2 pint

dissolve jello in water, then add strawberries

after it thickens a little, pour over cream cheese layer

refrigerate 2 hours minimum

If using fresh strawberries, wash, cut (as desired) and put in freezer

15 minutes or longer to help the Jello begin to set quickly

You can reserve a small amount of the jello mix and add to the cream cheese layer to make it pink.

Another one - this looks and tastes like it took a lot of trouble to make, but really is not hard. Although as we are baking in 100+ temps outside, the thought of turning my oven on....

Petite White Chocolate Cranberry Scones

2 cups gluten-free flour blend

1/3 cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp lemon or orange zest

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter/margarine

3/4 cup whipping cream

3/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries, coarsely chopped

3/4 cup gluten-free white baking chips

1/2 cup gluten-free white baking chips

2 tsp shortening

Heat oven to 400oF

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, zest and salt in a large bowl

Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs

Stir in cream, mix in

Stir in cranberries and 3/4 cup white baking chips

Knead dough 5-10 times until smooth

Divide dough into 4 equal pieces

Shape each piece into a 8 X 1 inch log

Cut each log into 4 pieces (2 inch each)

Cut each 2-inch piece in half diagonally

Place on ungreased baking sheet at least 1 inch apart

Bake 9-11 minutes - golden brown around the edges

Cool completely

Mix 1/2 cup baking chips and 2 shortening in small microwaveable bowl

Microwave on 50% power for 30 seconds at a time until melted

Stir and drizzle scones with melted chocolate

gluten-free Flour Blend (or use your favorite)

2 cups white rice flour

2/3 cup potato starch

1/3 cup tapioca starch

2 tsp Xanthan gum

----------------------------------------------------------------

One more comment - I make a lot of good desserts, but honestly, what everyone seems to go for the most is when I make gluten-free brownies. Nothing special about the recipe, but I top with a very thin layer of chocolate frosting and Heath bar pieces.

How about individual pavlovas? They are so pretty and tasty. Or using some meringue make Eton Mess. gluten-free shortbread with panna cotta or semifreddo is nice. Butterscotch or chocolate brownies dressed with maybe a raspberry coulis or caramel are awesome. I've made chocolate chip cookie dough brownies and they are deliciuos. I've been making lots of granita and Strawberry/Raspberry Fool. Or make chocolate chip cookies and turn them into ice cream sandwiches. gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are delicious and easy to make from scratch. Maybe chocolate truffles?

Most cheesecakes can easily be made gluten-free and so can Angel Food cake (yummy with a glaze, buttercream or 7-Minute frosting).

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
