More Gluten Free Goodies...

Testing recipes can be a challange-especially when you are working gluten and perhaps dairy free. I personally find it to be a fun challenge when I'm able to make a food taste good when using non-traditional ingredients. Even if you are not a accustomed to using gluten free ingredients, I can guarantee these 2 recipes will appease all palates alike. If you are not motivated to buy the 3 different flours I mention below, feel free to purchase commercial gluten free flour blends such as Pamela's gluten free baking mix, or Bob's Red Mill all purpose mix. Enjoy!
