Ruling out naturally GF foods (e.g. meat, potatoes, and salads)
Gravy: Add white rice flour when broth is at a rapid boil.
Cupcakes: This is one of the only recipes where you can use 100% rice flour. Just add yoghurt instead or milk. I say you can use 100% rice flour but I suggest using 75% brown rice flour and 25% high protein and fiber flour (e.g. quinoa, coconut, or any beans based flour).
The thought of changing one's life style so drastically to go from in a pinch meals (TV dinners and fast food) almost exclusively to homemade gluten free (GF) meals can be overwhelming. So what's the simplest family recipe to convert into a GF one?
Brownies: Use quinoa in conjunction with a starch.
Muffins: This is one of the only recipes where you can use 100% rice flour. Just add yoghurt instead or milk. I say you can use 100% rice flour but I suggest using 75% brown rice flour and 25% high protein and fiber flour (e.g. quinoa, coconut, or any beans based flour).
Changing Eating Habits Can Be A Hard Pill To Swallow!

You're sitting on at your computer, eating a pepperoni pizza and eying a chocolate doughnut for dessert. You Google “free food." You mindlessly click the first link before the page even is fully loaded. You start reading without even check the articles title, after all your searched “free food” of course your going to get something on free food right?
You've been skimming the page after the first two sentences babbled off some words intend to grab your interest. But as you skim the page you realize that this article isn't even on “free food” it's on “gluten free food.”
Now what do you keep reading? Or do you complain about Google search results? You keep reading because for some reason this article is making sense to you. You think, Ya why would any one want to eat gluten I mean it's creating anarchy in my intestines?
You stop and contemplate on the closing words “97% percent on the population is untested for Ceoliac Disease are you going to get tested?” You pause for a moment. Then look back over the information provided in the article with greater care. Your eyes literally widen as you read the symptoms and relate them to your own life. This is all making so much sense you're sensitive if not intolerant to gluten!
Okay so now's when you gobble you pizza down and dive into the doughnut, right?
Battered Foods: Making battered food (e.g. fish or onion rings) taste like good old fashioned wheat brand! Why is so easy? Probably because of all the oils masking/changing the texture of the Gf flour. Since going GF, I've tried making onion rings 2 or 3 times, battered fish 3 times, Chinese chicken balls 1 time, southern fried chicken 1 time. Each time I made these foods I used completely different flours and each time they turned out great. So experiment find your fav flour and go for it! Just pair flavours accordingly as some GF flours have a pronounced nutty or tinny (actually it's the iron) flavour.
Pizza Dough: See Glutino pizza crust article.
Cookies: Add and extra egg, but only one you want these to be cookies not cakes! Also use butter not margarine as margarine makes soft cookies and butter hard, GF cookies already tend to be softer, they don't need any help.
Pancakes/Crepes/Waffles: Tend to be great the first day but spoil very quickly.
