Quick Gluten Free Dinner Rolls

Quick Gluten Free Dinner Rolls

One of my best loved breads from childhood was a recipe from a dear family friend, Mrs. Sanford.  I loved when my mom made her rolls for special dinners. After being diagnosed with celiac disease, I hated not having a delicious, soft, slightly sweet dinner roll at Christmas or Easter dinner.

I began my quest for a great gluten free dinner roll with Mrs. Sanford’s recipe..and my memories.  I have been working for a long time trying to get this recipe just right…and at last I have success.  So many versions of this recipe, but this last one…so good!  And best of all…fast!  These were made, shaped, and on the table in 45 minutes.  Seriously.   Continue reading

Gluten free pie crust

Thick and Chewy Pizza


Thick and Chewy Gluten Free Pizza


I have longed to eat great pizza since I have had to be gluten free.  I have ordered it in restaurants, purchased several brands from stores, but never have been truly satisfied.  Some of it has been “pretty good”…and some truly awful.  I have made some at home that was  “pretty good”…and some that was truly awful.  Crispy flatbread style pizza seems to be most successful gluten free.  But a crust that is thick, chewy, and tastes good has been elusive.  Until now, that is.  This pizza crust is so good!  It is simply the best I have had since going gluten free.
