Gluten Free Sushi Made at Home | Triumph Dining

ricewrapsThanks to the Gluten Free Allergen Free Expo in Chicago in May and some fortuitous time spent on Twitter, I happened to discover two new gluten-free products that go great together.

I discovered Rice Waps Foods on Twitter. Their rice sheets and rice pillows have been sitting my freezer for a couple months now just waiting for inspiration to strike. Thanks to Trans Ocean Products being at the GFAF Expo and selling their product in my local grocery store, inspiration struck tonight. Click to continue reading »

Chocolate Silk Pie | Triumph Dining

Chocolate Silk PieSince I’ve been gluten-free for a while and expect people to accommodate my needs (to some extent at least), I have gotten better about asking others about their dietary needs as well. When I was asked to bring a gluten-free dessert for myself and one other person at a social event I made sure to reach out to see if that individual had any other restrictions. It’s a good thing that I did because I found out he’s gluten-free (Celiac), egg-free and dairy-free. There went my idea for an ice cream pie in a gluten-free crust. I had to go back to the drawing board.

Honestly, what did people do before the Internet? Did they have to scour the library for a cookbook with a recipe they could use? Luckily I don’t have to do that and I found a great, simple, easy and fairly healthy dessert to bring just by looking online. I followed the recipe below and used a MI-DEL gluten-free chocolate cookie pie crust from my local grocery store. The original recipe didn’t call for sugar but I thought it was a bit bitter without it.   Click to continue reading »

Small Lasagna | Triumph Dining

Loaf Pan LasagnaNow that the weather is colder here in the Midwest I’m more inclined to cook or bake something for dinner. When the weather is cool, salads aren’t as appealing.

For me, comfort food means reaching for Tinkyada or Maninis gluten-free lasagna noodles. They both taste great in lasagna but I think it’s still a pain to make. A whole 9×13 pan full of lasagna also is way too much food for my family. Even freezing half a pan is messy. Click to continue reading »
