I grew up in an Italian household where Christmas was a generous affair. The presents were piled knee-high underneath a massive ornament-laden tree that filled our entire front room. But the real center of our Christmas was the kitchen where my mother bent over bubbling pots, my aunts rolled pasta dough, my father filled glasses with homemade wine and my cousins and I decorated cookies. Here’s a festive gluten-free, dairy-free spread (antipasto, bread sticks, pasta dish, main course and desserts) that celebrates the very best of Italian tradition—without gluten and dairy. Add a fresh green salad and a side of mashed potatoes or polenta.
Thanksgiving is a celebration of gratitude and family traditions. Growing up in upstate New York, my family always gathered apples from our small backyard orchard in anticipation of the holiday feast. We’d pick the best of our crop—McIntosh, Pippin, Northern Spy—and store them in our cool pantry. When holiday baking began, we’d uncover our apples, still crisp and bright, and create recipes that highlighted them as a star ingredient. Apples fit deliciously into a traditional Gluten-Free Thanksgiving menu.
This gluten free Sweet Pastry Crust works well for all sorts of pies, both sweet and savory.
Brining delivers a turkey that is juicy and tender. This recipe includes apple cider, imbuing the meat with a wonderful flavor. Similar to marinating, brining is an overnight process. Be sure your turkey is completely thawed before placing it in the brine. Remove turkey from the brine and bring to room temperature before roasting. For juicier breast meat, roast your turkey unstuffed.
A delicious gluten-free deep dish apple pie is a great addition to the dessert table. Start with Sweet Pastry Gluten-Free Crust and add this filling of tart apples, fresh spices and cranberries. If desired, arrange decorative cutouts on top and sprinkle with finishing sugar for a special presentation. Make this in a deep dish pie pan.
