Check out some of these Raves from a few in the Gluten Free Community.

“Not only is Kid Approved filled with awesome, kid-friendly recipes (pizza, chicken fingers, and donuts to name a few), it also has a bunch of helpful information that will help parents deal with birthday parties, grocery shopping, neighborhood BBQs, and the taste and consistency problems that often accompany gluten-free baking. Tiffany includes beautiful full-color pictures for every recipe, and her unique GFMomCertified spice blends and flour blend as well. It’s not just a cookbook for making easy substitutions, but one with guides and tutorials that can help even the most stressed parents create easy and family-friendly meals that will transform the way they view allergy cooking!….Overall, I’m so impressed with Tiffany’s new book. Not only is it absolutely gorgeous and filled with fantastic recipes, but it’s such a great resource for parents, or anyone else, dealing with the complications and frustrations that go along with cooking allergy-friendly. Definitely check it out!”
“…she has turned her experience into a business dedicated to helping others.The food allergy community is filled with people who want to take their struggles and learning experiences and use those to help others like them. Tiffany is a wonderful example of this, and I’m so grateful to have met her!”
– Kathleen Shannon, Soul Food Heals|Facebook

This is not just a cookbook, Kid Approved is a solution guide for you to keep your child safe in a world of fun and wonder.”Right away, loved it! This describes the book perfectly. We are all so focused on what foods to avoid, what not to do when we have food allergies but Tiffany hits the nail on the head- food allergies are not about being afraid of your foods, it’s about finding out how to use the foods that you are able to eat. … That is what it’s all about and Tiffany shares that with us. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is looking for a gluten free, family-friendly cookbook. It also includes a shopping list, menus and a surprise extra at the end of the book (yeah, like I would ruin the surprise and tell you what it is!)

"I generally think Gluten-Free books are boring and the recipes are tasteless, but recently I was proven wrong. The author sent me an eBook of her cookbook to review: Kid Approved and I melted. The pictures were of her kids (absolutely adorable) cooking alongside and the pictures ofthe food and ingredients motivated me to try a few… The pictures are mouth watering and the recipes are easy to follow. I really did enjoy this cookbook… Kid Approved is a winer!!"

Pumpkin Caramel Chocolate S'mores #smoreschar

Fall s'mores are one of my favorites.  I can remember the ooey gooey marshmallow from childhood. My family does s'mores almost every Friday during the Summer and Fall seasons. We love to toast up marshmallows over a evening fire and put them on a cookie.  We have been using gluten free cookies for the year as a good Gluten Free graham cracker is hard to find. Well folks, Schar's has solved the problem.  These gluten free Honeygrams are perfect.  Crispy and sweet. They are strong and pair up with the warm gooey marshmallow perfectly.

I created a new Fall S'more recipe and you have to try it.

The Pumpkin Caramel Chocolate S'more

Schar's Honeygrams
Pumpkin Puree

Place two Schar Honeygrams face down. Spread 1 teaspoon of pumpkin puree on each Honeygram. Toast your marshmallow to perfection till it is golden brown on the outside and gooey in the center. Place toasted marshmallow on top of pumpkin puree, layer with chocolate square and 1 caramel. Top with other prepared pumpkin Honeygram. 

You can also make these in the oven broiler. Layer the Honeygrams and toast open then top once marshmallow is ready.  I broil them for 4 minutes. 

Schar Gluten Free is giving out free Honeygram Samples

Celebrate Fall Harvest

Fall cooking can be so fulfilling. It is a time of year for giving thanks for the harvest and the produce of the year. A time to gather and prepare for the Winter. Last weekend we did just that. I hosting a Fall Cooking class. We made homemade applesauce and pumpkin puree. Today I am giving you my family secret, the recipes so you can share in the celebration of Fall with your own family and community. I want you to do the same and host a Fall community cooking afternoon.  The joy found in community is a blessing and renews the spirit too. 

The applesauce is made by cooking the quartered apples in a pressure cooker for 25 to 30 minutes. Then mashing for chunky applesauce or puree for a smooth blend. You can also add nutmeg and cloves to make it more rich. 

6 pounds of apples
2 pears
1 cup water
1 lemon, juiced
cinnamon and nutmeg

Peel and core the apples and pears. Add all ingredients to the pressure cooker and cover. Cook for 25 minutes. Allow to cool 10 minutes, then mash or puree. Store in the fridge in jars for up to 3 weeks. Share with your neighbors too.  note: if you do not have a pressure cooker, cook in a large pot for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally. 

The pumpkin puree is just a easy.  Cut the pumpkins in halve remove the seeds (save to roast later). Place on baking sheet face down and cook in over for 1 1/2 hours for large pumpkins. 45 minutes for small pie pumpkins. Allow to cook and remove skin.  I find it easier to use a knive to cut the skin away. Chop up pumpkin into chunks and puree in blender 1 cup at a time until smooth. You can fridge in jars for up to 3 weeks. 

The applesauce can be used in muffins, breads, casseroles, lunch boxes, smoothie and cooked with pork chops. I have used the pumpkin is smoothies this week and to make curry. I am excited to make pumpkin muffins this weekend. 

What are you waiting for time to get celebrating!

The story behind American Gluten-Free

Hi, My name is Erika, Founder of American Gluten-Free. There's really no great story behind the conception of AGF other then I have a love for great food, the need for a gluten-free diet and the desire to help others!
One of the first things people ask someone on a gluten free diet is why are you on a gluten free diet? I think most of us can attest that we do not do this by choice. The short answer is that it makes me feel better. The long answer is I have Non-Celiac gluten intolerance and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Leading up to this lifestyle change, I was just not feeling good. My body ached, my skin literally hurt to touch and my energy level was rock bottom. I knew life could be better and that I was too young to keep living like this. One day I decided to make a change through food and that lead me to the gluten free diet. The absence of gluten filled bread wasn't the end of the world because I already ate a diet high in fruit, vegetables and protein. At first, the transition was fairly easy. I read a lot about the do's and don't's and did a lot of cooking at home. But soon enough, I found out this would not be so easy. What I realized is that when I was in control of what I ate it was fine but when I was not in control it could be dreadful.
After several months of a strict gluten free diet, and might I mention amazing results in my health, I had a terrible experience of getting ‘glutened’ at a family members house. Starting that night, I was left in agonizing pain and ended up bed ridden for the next week. I never wanted to feel this way again and I immediately started to feel for all those suffering from this intolerance.
As I submerged myself into this new way of eating, I wanted to make sure I had plenty of food options to maintain a healthy yet delicious lifestyle. I discovered that there are so many amazing brands out there curating their product line just for people like us. I want to share my finds with you in hopes that you find some of your favorite items for making amazing meals and for healthy snacking whether at home or on the go.
