Foodie Fave Five with The Gluten-Free Homemaker

I feel so fortunate that our family doesn’t have any specific dietary restrictions or allergies, at least as of yet. However, I have an immense amount of respect for those families that deal with them as a part of life. I know you just do what you have to do, but I’m often amazed at the great ways they are able to work around their diets and still create wonderful, family-friendly meals.

Linda, The Gluten-Free Homemaker, is one of those who inspires me with her positive attitude, creativity and kitchen skills on a daily basis. She has to follow a very strict gluten-free diet, but you’d never know her meals are born out of necessity with just a quick glance through her blog. Everything looks so delicious! Beyond just the recipes though, Linda offers a wonderful resource through her blog for gluten-free families. Whether you are just in the beginning stages of eating gluten-free, a seasoned gluten-free pro, or just looking for some great family meals, you are sure to find a wealth of useful information on Linda’s site.

Beef Barbecue Sandwich – My family loves this sandwich, but also enjoys other fillings.  It could be made with a regular foccacia bread recipe.

Gluten-Free Focaccia Bread/Hamburger BunsEven though the rest of my family does not have to eat gluten-free, they love eating this bread.  I like to bake and freeze extra hamburger buns for summer cookouts.

Gold Potato Casserole –  This is a favorite that my mom makes.  It’s great with almost any meal.

Gluten-Free Pancakes – Who doesn’t love pancakes?  These are a breakfast favorite at our house.

Pecan Praline Cake – The secret to this delicious cake is the “topping” which is put into the bottom of the pan.  If you don’t bake gluten-free, just use your favorite yellow cake mix or recipe.

About Linda:

I’m a wife and homeschooling mother of three teenage boys. In 2000 I was diagnosed with celiac disease which propelled me into the world of gluten free cooking a baking. I have learned that gluten free can be delicious and my family will attest to that. Therefore, I never apologize for serving gluten free food. Through my blog I enjoy helping others who are new to the gluten-free diet and those who have been at it for a while but are looking for new inspiration. Stop by The Gluten-Free Homemaker for more tips, recipes and inspiration.

This has me wondering…do any of you have to follow specific, allergy-based diets? If you do, you have my utmost respect and admiration!
