“Quick and easy” is one of those phrases like “no strings attached” or “satisfaction guaranteed” – often said, infrequently meant. This is especially true when it comes to food blogs. I’ve run across countless recipes that claim to be “quick and easy,” only to find out that they really mean “quick and easy…if you have a food processor, a high-powered blender, four different kinds of knives, two ovens, and you’ve already done your grocery shopping for the week.” Smoothies are the classic example of this. Delicious? Yes. Quickly made? Yes. But easy? With all that chopping and blending and trying to avoid cutting my fingers while washing out the blender? Not so much. Add “gluten free” and you end up with a tough search for a truly quick and easy snack.
But because you readers are so awesome and involved and often quite funny and informative, I’ve done the tough search for you.
