Thank you to everyone who participated. You all get an A+!
Now that the kids are back in school, it may be time to consider getting your own education in gluten-free cooking. Making lunch after lunch (as most parents of gluten-free kids do) can burn through recipes fast, so why not freshen up with a few new ideas?
As the Food Network proves, sometimes it’s just easier to watch a recipe before you read it. Written instructions may say “Bake until golden brown,” but how gold and how brown should it really be?
In case you didn’t know, NFCA has an arsenal of free gluten-free cooking videos (www.celiaccentral.org/cookingvideos) to guide you through breakfast, lunch and dinner. The series is called “Alternative Appetites”and each episode features a gluten-free recipe (sometimes 2 or 3) you can easily make at home. Chef Dan Kohler of Renegade Kitchen serves as the host, and there are even a few guests in select episodes.
NFCA started “Alternative Appetites” a few years ago, but we’ve been ramping up the episodes over the last few months. If you’ve missed any, take a few minutes each night to catch up on all the episodes.
The newest video just premiered in NFCA’s September e-newsletter. Sponsored by Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery, this episode features recipes for Cinnamon Coconut Cashew Spread and Homemade Mayonnaise - the perfect way to kick up your kid’s gluten-free sandwiches.
In addition to its gluten-free baked goods, Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery has a line of non-food “swag,” including these adorable sandwich boxes. The boxes keep Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bread fresh all the way through lunch (no toasting needed!), and they went like hotcakes at Appetite for Awareness last fall.
Rudi’s sandwich boxes aren’t easy to get a hand on, but I secured 3 of them for a special gluten-free giveaway. To enter for the chance to win, watch the new episode of Alternative Appetites. Then, leave a comment answering the following questions about the video.
Three winners will be randomly selected from those who answer the questions correctly. I’ll reveal the answers and announce the winners on Monday, Sept. 12.
