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 I was wondering if anyone knew if red rose tea bags were gluten free? I have been drinking this tea for years now and the past few weeks I have not been able to drink it. I get cramps in my lower abdomen and this morning I got nauseated. I was wondering if this is something to do with the tea?
    • @LouiseBea Welcome!  Has celiac disease (dermatitis herpetiformis, skin version) been ruled out?  DH treatment requires a life-long gluten free diet.  
    •  I'm a new member and totally frustrated with Dapsone which has done absolutely nothing for my autoimmune skin disease.  This is a condition where the white blood cells attack the skin, and it's been on-going for 6 years.  Only 1 in 2,000 have this rare disease so zero research has been done unfortunately.  My dermatologist put me on a stronger dose which merely worsened it.  So back to the drawing board of what to do.  Redirecting the white blood cells must be an impossible task to figure out, but in this age of technology surely some doctor, chemist, etc., could come up with a solution? I've read where many people become antibiotic resistant and this may have happened to me.  I'm sick to death of my problematic skin, and any suggestions would be helpful.    
    • Hello and welcome It's true that there's a connection between thyroid conditions and celiac.  Loose stools and other digestion issues can be symptoms of celiac and you should definitely explore this issue with your doctor. This is the full celiac panel, try and get as many of these as available to you: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA You must be eating some gluten each day up to the test date for an accurate response.  Here's some more info. Also check out the forum FAQ   Best of luck    
    • This is a really good serum for moms to reduce dark circles and Puffiness.My mom really liked it and she uses it everyday. I thought it might feel sticky as it dries or sinks in but it doesn’t.It minimizes the dark circles under your eyes and its results get better over time.You don't need to use a lot, a tiny amount will do. If you use too much it could feel sticky. Overall, Excellent product for sensitive skin! And its fragrance free. Very happy with dermalmd's serum and would recommend it to anyone with skin that tends to react to most other creams
