May Brings More Than Flowers- it brings celiac awareness!

May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month. Around this little casita, that's no big deal. After all, we live with celiac disease 24/7 (and have been gluten-free- in our various kitchens- since December 19, 2001). Living gluten-free- to us- is second nature. But what about the over two million and several hundred thousand other celiac citizens- the vast sea of the Undiagnosed? You're out there. Somewhere. Swimming in gluten. And you don't even know it's wreaking havoc.

This post's for you.

Throughout the month of May, Gluten-Free Goddess will be spotlighting gluten-free recipes that pop up in sweet and unexpected places- especially food and cooking blogs, and sites that don't necessarily focus on gluten-free cooking. Spotting and tagging safe recipes for celiac disease in a blogging community with a passion for taste, fresh ingredients and style will be not only fun- but help to raise awareness for celiac disease.

Read on for the first fabulous find.

The first tempting recipe find is this sexy Warm Steak and Orange Salad posted by food writer and recipe developer Amy Sherman at Glam Dish- tasty morsels served with style. It's impossible to feel deprived when you can dig into a dish like this. Get more Amy at her Cooking With Amy blog, too. She's got some tasty gluten-free recipes to share- like these delightful crepes.

Alton Brown (of Good Eats) has "The Chewy Gluten Free" cookie in the Food Network web site:,,FOOD_9936_37255,00.html

I recommend halving the amount of butter called for in the recipe; it keeps the cookie from flattening out too much. Also, make sure to get a well-milled brown rice flour. Red Mills has a nice one.

I have a new find for you! Ok, maybe not new to you but I haven't seen much of it around. At my local Indian market, I picked up a bag of rice flakes. They look like large flakes of paper thin confetti. Anyways, I pulsed them in food processor and used them to coat my fish for pan frying. OMG, it was awesome, even better than panko bread crumbs! I'll post about it soon.

Great idea, Karina! Inspired by you and Shauna (, I've started marking all gluten-free recipes as such on my blog (, hoping that folks searching for GF stuff can do so more easily. I hope other bloggers start doing the same!
