My Favorite Ice Cream…

11 Jul 2011, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in recipes

…in the whole wide universe. July is ice cream month, so when I’m feeling overheated and need a little something, I break out my ice cream maker. This recipe was created during our first year of The Gilded Fork, crafted by Donna Marie Desfor. The basil and orange combination is like sunshine screaming in your mouth, so it’s the perfect taste of summer. NOTE: If you are gluten-free, skip the cinnamon tuiles. If you are lactose intolerant or dairy-free, you can substitute the cream with 3 cups of full-fat coconut milk (canned). recipe: basil & orange ice cream with cinnamon…

Gluten-Free: One Year Later

14 May 2011, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in wellness

Interestingly enough, celiac, fibromyalgia and food allergy awareness all happen in May, so I could technically do a trifecta post and cover all bases.

Though each day seems to get a bit easier, there are times when my new lifestyle catches me off guard, and if I’m not 100% on my game, a wave of misery can knock me right on my ass.

Yes, I’ve been pretty quiet. As my body has adjusted the past few weeks to living gluten-free, my mind and emotions have been on a pretty steep roller coaster.

In my quest for deliciousness via gluten-free goodness, I’ve been experimenting with a lot of international flavors. One of my favorite dishes is laab, a spicy beef dish (a salad, really), so this is my riff on the idea.
