It’s FRIDAY!

Want to try some more Hanukkah traditional foods?  Check out this list.  Yep, it’s mostly fried foods.

Need some Hannukah gelt (chocolate coins) without dairy and nuts?  Try these.

And while we’re in this vein, depending on your allergies and food choices, kosher food markings can be helpful to know and understand.  Foods marked “pareve” are kosher “neutral,” meaning they don’t contain dairy or meat.  This was GREAT when I was just dairy-free.  Still check for other allergens, but this is just one tool in your arsenal.  Read more here.

HEY!  Gluten-free English muffins?  From King Arthur Flour?  When I have some time, I will be trying these.  I LOVE English muffins.  So far, I have had great luck with chia as an egg replacer.

Ethereal Confections has an array of dairyfree, glutenfree and some vegan chocolates.  I (Denise) desperately want to try the Ambrosia – Smoked Sea Salt, Caramelized Pecans & Chiles chocolate but it’ll have to wait until my next paycheck.

These Easy Vegan Chocolate Lava Cakes look fabulous.  They aren’t gluten free, but I wonder if they could be modified.

I recently got the new Kindle Fire HD so I’ve been looking at cookbooks.  I’m interested in checking out a couple.  I’m (Denise) not gluten free, but I’m interested in gluten free cooking both for the blog and for Mary Kate’s sake.  I found Gluten-Free and Vegan Bread: Artisanal Recipes to Make at Home, which looks really interesting and also for those of us with multiple food allergies, The Healthy Gluten-Free Life: 200 Delicious Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free and Egg-Free Recipes! Anybody seen either of these books?  Tried the recipes, etc, etc? I’d be thrilled with any feedback you can give.

Again, we’d love to hear from you if you have cool stuff to share!
