I would love to win this! I just found the GF bisquick locally (Zebulon) and would love to try more of the products.

My tip is that I only eat things I cooked myself and kept in separately noted containers. With teens in the family who don't quite "get" cross-contamination, I cook and serve myself. Not the most creative answer, but it's the one that works for our family!

Good Morning! I was recently diagnosed with celiac and have been a bit overwhelmed by all of the information out there. I have a husband and young son who I love to cook for so now I'm just looking for ways to cook gluten-free meals from products that taste good! I'm a little intimidated by cooking for Thanksgiving but have found that some of my favorite foods can still be made GF (like gravy made with corn starch, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, and of course turkey). Still trying to figure a way to make green bean casserole though... Thanks for the opportunity to try any new products and for the blog!!

Start a new tradition with a gluten free food! Make your favorite gluten free recipe for everyone to try, to replace an old gluten-filled food. Once your family and friends taste that gluten free foods can still taste "normal", they will be more willing to prepare more dishes gluten free (with your help, so you can avoid contamination). Its much more fun when everyone can enjoy the same foods as you, and can see that being gluten free doesnt have to mean that we suffer with bad-tasting food!

We host Thanksgiving each year, so it's not difficult for me to make sure that everything we prepare is GF. Without question, though, the best thing on the table is the dressing, every year. I make GF bread a few days ahead so it has time to dry out, as well as cornbread. Allowing it to dry out makes it take on more liquid when making the dressing, which leaves it as moist as cake. Yum! I can't wait.

Another thing that people forget is that you can still have gravy. If you use a good quality white rice flour, it will make a great consistency and brown well for a base roux. Other GF substitutions are arrowroot or corn starch. They don't reheat as smoothly as flours, but who has leftovers, anyway? =)

Hope you are well, and enjoy a great holiday!

I'll be thickening the gravy with cornstarch instead of flour. My mom made it that way and I've continued the tradition. I love oyster dressing, but most of my family does not, so I'll make my little batch with Udi's bread. I've never tried it with gluten-free bread, but it should be fine.

Ive found several tasty gluten free recipes online and at living gluten freely for traditional thanksgiving fare (i.e. dressing, gravy, potatoes). These dishes are so good that my non-gf family members prefer them so i dont have to make seperate dishes. this saves alot of time and money.

For gluten free gravy, I use a reciped that is a combination of apples, stock and onions. You bake it all toghther in the oven and then puree it in a blender. It is great, freezes and no one ever knows it isn't typical flour based gravy!
