Gluten Free Recipe Apps?

Hi there! Newbie to the forum. 

 

Does anyone know any good gluten free recipe apps? Have friends coming over after Christmas and we need some good Christmasy recipes which I can download.

 

Love any that you've tried and feel worked for you.

Sorry, I don't know of any apps, but on this forum, many folks have posted great recipes.  There are plenty of blogs out there too!  I try to avoid the blog recipes that require different blends of gluten-free flours.  

 

I do plenty of baking of goodies and have converted most of my old gluten-containing recipes to gluten-free using Pamela's gluten-free flour.  I try to avoid any all purpose flour that has beans in it. 

 

Looking for desserts?  There's a gluten-free gram cracker crumb manufacturer that will allow you to make your own cheesecake or ice cream cakes using a springform pan.  Find a cheesecake recipe on Bon Appetite and you'll be sure to get raves and they are easy to make!

 

Attended a party last night.  I brought ham rolls (ham, cream cheese, green onions or aspargus stalks), and crispy bacon wrapped dates stuffed with almonds.  So many options!

Just something simple and quick - we'll probably do a roast so that's ok, but it would be nice to have some gluten free stuffing or similar and maybe something for dessert?

Have you ever made risotto?  It is actually quite simple, but they make gluten-free box mixes that are really good, I use lundberg brand.  Says gluten free prominently on the box.  

 

A nice holiday side dish is au gratin potatoes, just use a regular recipe, and use corn starch in the sauce instead of flour.  I can vouch that this works well.  If you are in a gluten-eating kitchen, I would buy a new container of corn starch (its cheap) since all that powdery stuff floofs all over and you don't want to feed your friend gluten by accident if they are sensitive.  Here is a good recipe:  http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/cheesy-au-gratin-potatoes/f2665027-8485-4153-bdea-da9c427a4d44    (I have made that with parmesean cheese, too.  And bacon/cheddar)

 

Mashed potatoes are naturally gluten-free as well.  Just boil peeled potatoes that are cut up, until soft.  Mash with butter, milk/cream, and salt and pepper.  You can make them garlic mashed potatoes by boiling whole garlic cloves with it and mashing them with the potatoes.  

 

Something I like to serve with fancy roasts is haricots verts- or fresh french green beans.  You can steam/boil them for a few minutes, then sautee them with garlic and butter in a pan.  Be careful to not burn the garlic. Salt and pepper to taste. 

 

If you want to make gluten-free stuffing, you can use your regular recipe and use gluten-free bread.  I would cut up the bread into cubes and toast it in the oven before adding it into the mix because gluten-free bread can get mooshy.  If your grocer carries Udis brand that works well.  It is kept in the freezer and has a yellow/blue label.  But any gluten-free bread you find should work fine.  Also in the stuffing recipe, it may call for broth, and not all broths are gluten free.  Look for stock in the square containers, a lot of those gourmet brands will say "gluten free" on the box.  Here is the stuffing recipe I made for Thanksgiving, it is in a slow cooker but it would work just as well  in the oven:

And for dessert, I know the perfect chocolate-lovers recipe.  Flourless chocolate cake.  Make it with the ganace on top like it has here:   http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/flourless-chocolate-cake-recipe  and serve with sliced strawberries.  If your friend is a sensitive celiac they may not be comfortable eating something made in the same pan as gluten baked goods, you may want to ask them first.   I have my mother in law make everything in disposable foil pans when I come over, it solves part of that problem.

 

Another less-involved dessert idea would be a sundae bar, really good if there are a lot of people.  Get ice cream, bananas, chocolate syrup, various fruit, and let everyone go to town making what they want.  

 

I would like a banana split now after talking about that!  Hope all my ideas helped ya :)

I used Rudi's stuffing this year for Thanksgiving and made the second recipe on the list, the Laura's whatever. The apple in it seemed a little weird when I was making it, but I did it anyway and it turned out perfect. Of course, you have to find Rudi's stuffing, which I found in all of my local health food stores, but none of the regular grocery stores. http://www.rudisbakery.com/gluten-free/blog/category/gluten-free-savory-herb-stuffing-recipes/

 

Other than stuffing, I mostly just make the same everything I've always made for the holidays with the exception of green bean casserole which I simply skip. It's just meat + veggies + gravy + stuffing. The only issue there is the stuffing. Dessert is as easy as a crustless pumpkin pie or cheesecake.

    • Thank you for your reply.  I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.  
    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
    • I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.
    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).  
    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
