Tried and True – Some Favorite Gluten Free Recipes

In 2008, after many doctor visits, tests and medications, I found out I had developed a gluten allergy (specifically to wheat). Having to follow a strict diet was a very daunting task for me in the beginning. Thankfully, the food industry has come a long way since I was first diagnosed. The “gluten free” label has become a much more common sight at the grocery store, while a growing number of restaurants now have gluten-free menus available. There’s more variety, recipes and resources available for the growing population of people who struggle with food allergies. I’m still learning to cook and eat a gluten free diet, while also accommodating to my Italian husband who loves everything gluten! Finding something we both enjoy has taken some time, but here are some of our favorites!

Main courses



  • Flourless Chocolate Cake – SO delicious! And easy to make.
  • Red Velvet Cupcakes – I could eat these all day long. You would never know they were GF since they’re super moist and flavorful. We used this recipe for our wedding cake too.

I do most of my gluten free shopping at our local grocery store, but also get a good bit from They always have a good Groupon or Living Social deal going on. Everything else I alternate buying from Whole Foods, Mom’s Organic Market or The Common Market.
