Gluten Free Recipes That Taste GoodFiguring out what to cook is hard enough for most people, but what if you're one of more than 2 million Americans who live with celiac disease? The possibilities may seem even more limited.
And chances are, you aren't just cooking for yourself - you're cooking for friends and family, too. That's why we've put together a list of 20 celiac-friendly recipes from a few people who have been living with the disease and cooking gluten-free successfully not only for themselves, but also for others who might not necessarily need to eat gluten-free.
So the recipes we've compiled here aren't just gluten-free versions of foods on the "don't touch" list, like pizza, pasta, and sandwiches (which generally require some sort of wheat product). Instead, these recipes take a ground-up approach, meaning instead of replacing the problem ingredient - wheat, rye, or barley product - with some obscure substitute, which sometimes leads to less than stellar results (ever had slimy gluten-free bread before?),

Jalepeno Mac and CheeseThere's nothing quite like pasta swimming in a gooey, bubbly sea of cheeses to wet one's appetite on a cold, cloudy day. Or a bright and sunny day, for that matter.

Fish and chipsWhen it comes to frying anything in a batter, I'm crazy about a beer batter, which in its simplest form is all-purpose flour and beer in roughly equal quantities (depending on how you measure your flour, you may need a bit more liquid to get to a pancake batter-like consistency). It's what I use on squash blossoms and they fry up super-crisp every time.
But I was curious to see how other cooks and chefs do it. On Epicurious.com, Bon Appétit has a recent recipe that uses a mixture of beer and club soda in the batter, but the recipe also includes baking powder as well as baking soda and malt vinegar (the baking soda and vinegar add extra bubbles beyond the baking powder). The flour+ baking powder+ salt combo mimics self-rising flour. I'd had a good experience with fried chicken coated in self-rising flour, so that was definitely worth a try.
When in doubt, at least about fish, I turn to Fish Without A Doubt by Rick Moonen, the chef/owner of RM Seafood in Las Vegas andRead More »from The Tricks to Know Before Making Fish and Chips
