So I live in a pretty small town and they are going to be having a gluten free dinner party for celiacs! You have to call and preregister and let them know what you are bringing. I am really excited because I love cooking and baking... Now, what should I take.. I made a few things today just to try from my new cook book and they turned out awesome, I just can't decide.. Any ideas or favorite recipes?

I'm not much of a cook so I would end up bringing something store-bought. As a matter of fact, that is exactly what I'll be doing Saturday night. I've been invited to a surprise birthday party for a friend and I know there will be at least one other celiac there. I may buy some of those Udi's chocolate muffins and the rest of them can be jealous because I bet none of their food tastes as good!

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

I'd be tempted to bring a flourless chocolate torte w/ chocolate ganache garnished w/ raspberries. Yum. Brazilian cheese rolls (made w/ tapioca flour) are a super appetizer too! Recipes for both are all over the internet.

If you do the cheese rolls/bread they have to be warm. They're super yummy, super easy... and super awful once they're cold. I'm usually a mac&cheese kind of person for that sort of thing. I also used to make a killer enchilada casserole although I haven't made it in a long time. I like it because it can be meat free if you want, or dairy free if you do a cheese sub instead. Can't really get around having beans in it though. <_<

In my heart of hearts though, I'm a baker. I would look for the first excuse to bring dessert instead of a dinner food. I love making fancy cookies because everyone oohs and aahs over them and generally drools over how awesome they look before they even taste them. :D Plus cookies are good because everyone can just grab one or two and it doesn't involve slicing or serving or any of that nonsense. Bring a disposable dollar store platter and you don't have to collect anything later.

A chocolate torte sounds amazing! I am a big dessert person as well and I love baking. I did try eclairs yesterday and they turned out amazing(my sisters and mom loved them). I am going to try these individual almond-rasberry cakes tonight. I think cookies are a good idea too. So many decisions, I just love baking, unfortunately, I also love eating!!! I am bringing my sister with me, so I will probably bring two things since she is not gluten free. Thanks for your help-I am going to google those recipes!!!
