Have a Happy Gluten-Free Holiday

It’s time to get your holiday bake on and the treat train won’t stop until the end of the year. If you’re sensitive to gluten or managing celiac disease, there’s no need to forego holiday pies, cookies, breads and muffins.

Gluten-free baking can seem like a pretty tough order, but it’s easier (and more delicious!) than you think.

Rule Your Thanksgiving Kitchen

While working as a food stylist a few years back, I prepared a Thanksgiving dinner for photos that we planned to take in the afternoon. I started cooking at a reasonable time in the morning, with no substantial prep the day before.
