Corn Substitutions in Bake Deliciously!

May 28th, 2009 by Jean Duane


A lot of the recipes in Bake Deliciously! Gluten and Dairy Free Cookbook call for cornstarch but through many tests, I have found that one starch works virtually the same as another in the recipes, so anytime cornstarch is called for, you could use tapioca flour, sweet rice flour, potato starch or arrowroot instead.

May 11th, 2009 by Jean Duane


Pasta is probably one of the foods most missed by those following a gluten free diet, but our days of missing good pasta are over! There are lots of gluten-free pastas on the market, and I haven’t tried them all, but one brand I particularly like is Tinkyada. The texture of this pasta is delightful. […]

Ingredient Comparisons

May 6th, 2009 by Jean Duane


My idea of excitement is to compare what happens to a recipe when you leave everything constant and change ONE ingredient. I think I missed my calling as a kitchen chemist (and by the way, if you know of any good programs, I’d love to augment my education). Anyway, while developing Bake Deliciously! Gluten and […]
