235 New Gluten-Free Recipe Ideas from Jamie Oliver!

I’m admittedly a bit of a recipe fanatic – I’ve got well over 1100 recipes stored in Paprika, our iPad recipe app. However, it’s always hard to find new and exciting ideas for meals and snacks, especially if we’re looking for something to meet other dietary needs (like our vegetarian and dairy-free friends).

Today we found Jamie Oliver’s gluten-free recipe page, which looks to be just the trick for spicing up our fall menu plan. It offers 235 gluten-free recipes, as well as dairy-free ideas and tons of filtering options which let you view recipes by ingredient, dish type, method, cuisine, difficulty, course, and/or occasion. There’s also an app for iPhone and iPad!

Here are a few of Jamie’s recipes that we’re looking forward to trying:

We’d love to hear your favourite fall recipes, too!

New Glasgow’s Gluten-Free Goodies Are Worth The Trip

A few weeks ago I posted about Gluten-Free Goodies, a gluten-free bakery in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. This weekend, I was visiting some friends in Pictou, and they dropped off a big sampler package. (Disclaimer: I am friends with the nephew of one of the owners.) I was drooling just at the sight of it!

Snack Away at Obladee!

Mike and I stopped by Obladee Wine Bar on Barrington Street (across from the Discovery Center) last Friday for a drink. Imagine my surprise when I found all sorts of gluten-free stuff in their snack list!

Their menu focuses on wines by the glass and bottle, but they have a wide range of charcuterie (prepared meat products), cheeses, and condiments. Since most things are prepared by hand, I would say that many of them are likely gluten-free. (It’s hard to say definitively since some of their offerings change daily, but things certainly looked promising. Their menu is also available online at

Now, most platters come with bread, which is obviously not an option for Celiacs. They do have gluten-free crackers, however! And after you’re done stuffing your face with wine and cheese, try out a gluten-free truffle or two!

I was too full that night to try any of their snacks, but trust me – I’ll be back there soon to do a full investigation!
