Gluten Free Party Food

January 23, 2015

I have finally recovered enough from last Sunday’s Seahawks football game to do a post on Gluten Free Snacks for your Super Bowl Party!


Dreaming of a trip to Paris?  I always am!  I have visited Paris three times and honestly cannot wait to go back.  On my next trip I will be sure to visit  Le Chambelland - Gluten Free Bread Bakery in Paris.


As some of you know, my daughter who has Celiac Disease is a freshman at the University of Washington.  I have posted some updates about her eating gluten free at college on Facebook and appreciate all of the support and encouragement we have received.   Here is the full story.   It is rather long, but the bottom line is that the University of Washington gets an F for failing to accommodate my daughter’s gluten free diet.

 

Here’s a quick overview, but please read on:

 

  • We followed all steps necessary to request an accommodation, met with UW officials on several occasions, and even offered to pay for training on GF food preparation and avoiding cross-contamination. 

 

  • They plain and simply failed to provide safe meals.  She ate three meals in the dining hall and was sick after two of them.

 

  • We went to Plan B, preparing her own meals.  We requested her dorm be converted from a triple occupancy to a double when one of her roommates moved out so she would have a little more room to store supplies, and that she also receive a credit on her meal plan as she would not be eating in the dining hall.

 

  • They denied both requests, suggested she move out of the dorms, and refused to credit her dining account.

I thought I was done blogging for the year, and then we made these.  We call this gluten free chocolate pastry the Stars of Christmas. 


nuflours Gluten Free Bakery is now open in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle.  My daughter and I visited last weekend.  We give the bakery two thumbs up! 


For Thanksgiving, I made the most delicious and easy gluten free crescent rolls using gfJules Gluten Free Flour.

 

Thanks to gfJules for sending me a bag of this flour and sponsoring the giveaway below.

Peppermint Hot Cocoa Cookies

To kick off the holiday season, I have a great recipe for Peppermint Hot Cocoa Cookies and a giveaway from Pamela’s to help with your holiday baking.


We always travel with a carry-on full of GF food.  While most airlines now provide gluten free options, I would never trust an airline to feed my family safe food.  Twice we have found wheat ingredients clearly listed on an item in a GF airline meal and once they just did not have the meal on the airplane.  Plus the options are usually pretty limited and expensive.
