How To Make Romesco Sauce (Gluten Free & Vegan)

I think a lot of us get caught in a rut when it comes to food. We blanch, grill, or roast the same veggies for dinner each week; we pack the same sandwich, wrap, or salad day after day until we think we could never possibly eat them again. Sound familiar? ...more

Tropical Granola (Gluten Free & Vegan)

I have always had a soft spot for homemade granola. I love making it, I adore the smell that fills the house when it is toasting in the oven, and I simply swoon over the taste. I am usually not picky with my granola choices although I do have one rule ....more

Beard & Bonnet’s Gluten Free Easter Candy List

Every holiday that rolls around involving kid’s and candy sets off a feeling of dread in the pit of my stomach. I used to LOVE building Easter baskets, stuffing stockings with treats, and buying heart shaped everything at Valentine’s, but now that we have a little one with a gluten allergy the past few years have been a little lacking on the festive holiday candy assortment. Just venturing near those aisles in the store during the holiday’s was enough to send me reeling ....more

Grilled Pizza Dough with Veggies and Almond “Ricotta” (Gluten Free & Vegan)

Around here we LOVE pizza! Since we had to transition to a gluten free diet a few years ago I have spent a lot of time testing out pizza dough recipes, probably too much time to actually mention. Unfortunately, the majority of the pizza dough creations I have made have received not so rave reviews from my pizza obsessed family, but there are a few recipes that my crew swears by and this grilled pizza dough is one of them ....more

3 Secrets To Taking The Bread Out Of Bread Crumbs (Gluten Free and Vegan)

I think that one of the worst things about transitioning to a gluten free diet was wondering what the heck I was going to do to replace bread crumbs! It totally baffled my mind because suddenly the gluten free bread that I bought was too expensive to turn into bread crumbs and the gluten free bread crumb alternatives in the store tasted awful. I am a huge believer in seasoning every layer of a dish to build a depth of flavor and in my opinion, if one of the main components of a dish is lack-luster it will bring everything else down with it ....more

How To Make Hummus (Gluten Free & Vegan)

Last week when we made homemade tahini I promised that I would share with you how to make hummus at home from scratch. My reasoning for this was simple; first, I really wanted to show you how to make hummus and second, I REALLY wanted a reason to make a fresh batch of hummus for us to enjoy. I often find myself grabbing humus at the store for quick, easy snacks, or picking it up from our local Mediterranean restaurant ....more
