A Gluten-Free Traditional Thanksgiving

Well, we were able to successfully pull off a gluten-free Thanksgiving. And ya know what, you wouldn't have known all the goodies were gluten-free unless you asked!

Now, it wasn't all dairy-free, but everything we brought was and we just kept the dairy stuff away from O's plate.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies....12 dozen of 'em :). I just followed the Nestle chocolate chip cookie recipe on the chocolate chip bag and exchanged the white wheat flour for rice flour (brown & white) & a little bit of potato starch. Also, added a little bit of Xanthan Gum. They turned out great!



Gluten-Dairy-Free Deviled Eggs....


Gluten-Free Ginger Snaps. My little sister made these. Yum!


Dairy-Free (at least cow dairy!) Chocolate Mint Fudge...we had a lot of fudge of various kinds thanks to my little baking sister :).


Jello of course....


A view of one spot of the desserts. Cookies, Lollipops & Fudge.


The turkey that was baked with butter. It was good, just had to be avoided for O.


Homemade lollipops (again, thanks to my little sister). Cinnamon Spice, Pumpkin Spice (delicious) & Lemon.


Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread


Of course, the cranberries :).

Gluten-Free Cornbread Stuffing. It turned out really good! My grandma made this and she did a great job, even with making the GF Cornbread from scratch.


The hors d'oeuvres counter.


Goodnight!

Love your blog! The layout is great and I loved reading about your G-free thanksgiving. I blog at www.aprilanecdotes.wordpress.com. I have 6 kids, 3 with DS. The kids with DS still live at home and are 22, 18 and 13 years old. My one son had diabetes and the other Celiac disease making each meal interesting. Come on over for a look. susan
