DO Try This At Home: Gluten & Dairy Free Chips ‘n Dip

Homemade treats that anyone can enjoy…

One of our good blogger friends @ATLCeliacGirl is seriously allergic to both gluten and dairy. Have you ever tried to find things to eat that are free of both? I’ve tried. It’s not easy. Don’t even get me started on finding options at a restaurant. The food might be gluten & dairy free, but did they cook it in a pan that previously had either of those things in it? Yeah, that makes a difference and can cause serious problems for someone with the disease. So it’s been a fun adventure coming up with healthy alternatives to food favorites with her in the kitchen, including this easy to make, lick-the-bowl-clean good dip.

DO Try This at Home: Citrus Thyme Chocolate Toffee

 

Because everything’s better with butter. Even butter.

If you follow the tweets from @katiemanderson or @whiskawaynic, you probably find yourself craving whatever tantalizing concoctions the sisters are whisking up.  It happened to me just last weekend when I heard mention of a tangerine thyme chocolate chip cookie the foodie duo were selling at the Atlanta Underground Food Market. I decided to try my hand at the flavor combination in the form of toffee (my personal obsession.) Toffee is such a simple recipe, and so easy to tweak. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself. Cook two sticks of butter, one cup of sugar, and the zest of two oranges and a lemon over medium heat until it turns a golden, nutty brown, or until a candy thermometer reaches about 300 degrees. Once the butter and sugar mixture is done and has cooled a minute (not too long), add a couple of tablespoons of fresh thyme, then pour into a sheet pan and let cool. Finally, drizzle some milk chocolate on top and devour. The citrus and thyme combination is just heavenly…and very springtimey, for lack of a better (or actual) word.
