Macaroons with a Purpose, Miami is Kind Bakery

Delicious macaroons in a variety of fun flavors, all for a cause!

Miami Is Kind Macaroons Title

Baking with purpose.

There is a new gluten-free baking company in town. When I was contacted by Miami is Kind, I was very excited. There are not a lot of gluten-free bakeries in Miami, and macaroons are delicious! Once I learned more about the bakery, my excitement grew. Founder Silvia Planas-Prats is out to do more than provide the world with delicious, gluten-free macaroons. She is out to create a social revolution by providing opportunities for young adults with autism and other disabilities to hold gainful employment.

Silvia is originally from Spain and relocated to Miami to find better opportunities for her son, who has autism. After fighting her way through the education system to give him the best opportunities available, she realized that once he left the education system, there were little to no opportunities for him. She has set out to change that.

Aguadito de Pavo, Peruvian Turkey and Veggie Soup

The perfect use for leftover turkey and vegetables. This “throw it all in the pot” soup is full of flavor, with just a bit of spice.

Peruvian Turkey and Vegetable Soup

Peruvian Roots.

Growing up my husband’s family owned a bakery in Peru. Located in Lima, they sold more than just bread and pastries, they also sold meals, like Arroz con Pollo, and around the holidays, turkeys. Turkey is traditionally the main protein at a Christmas feast in Peru. My husband raves about his mom’s roasted turkey, but what he speaks about more is the soup that they would have the day after Christmas, using up all the turkey leftovers. Aguadito de Pavo brings about fond memories in our house. This Thanksgiving we had a lot of leftover turkey, and we knew that this was the perfect soup to make with it and we didn’t have to make any adjustments to make it gluten-free, which is always a plus!

GFJules Gluten-Free Flour and Baking Mixes Review

GFJules All Purpose Flour*This post contains affiliate links. By using affiliate links you help keep this site up and running! All opinions are my own and I have not been compensated for them in anyway.

Becoming gluten-free is work.

When I first became gluten-free, I did a lot of research. I attempted to go about the gluten-free lifestyle by just replacing items with their gluten-free counterparts, and for the most part, it worked. That is, until I came to the flour. Baking and cooking are things I have always enjoyed, and didn’t really want to give up, but when I began looking online I found a bunch of gluten-free all-purpose flour recipes, that seemed to do a good job, but required purchasing all kinds of different flours. Lots of them. White rice flour, brown rice flour, chickpea flour, corn flour, potato starch, tapioca flour and the list goes on an on.

Really, how many types of flours do you need to make a gluten-free flour?

Schar’s New Artisan Bread with Easy Chicken Salad

Schar Artisan Bread

I was super excited when I received a package from Schar!

They had sent two loaves of their new artisan sandwich bread, a white bread and a multi-grain. It was so nice of them to send us a product to review! At our house we are a lovers of all things Schar. Many of the recipes we used to make before going gluten-free, such as Papas a la Huancaina or Aji de Gallina (recipe coming soon), we have found that we can use their products as replacements for their gluten counterparts and they work perfectly. In the past I had purchased their sandwich bread and it was good, but I had yet to try this new recipe.

Happy Halloween from My Gluten Free Miami

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!

I know what you are thinking:

“Who made that amazing pumpkin?”

It was my amazing husband. He is so awesome and so supportive. Remember when he wrote Confessions From the Husband of a Celiac? He is just so great. Having celiac disease is not always easy, but when you have a great support system it definitely helps!

Halloween is now just a few days away, and I know what you are thinking, “Can I eat the candy?” Halloween is about more than little kids dressing up in cute costumes (my daughter is going to be a captain from StarTrek, if you don’t already follow me on Instagram you should, there will be pictures! @myglutenfreemiami) it is about seeing how much candy you can eat without getting sick.

8 Gluten-Free Beers to Celebrate Oktoberfest

8 Gluten-free Beers to Celebrate Oktoberfest

I got a text from my brother the other day. He was sitting at a bar in Wisconsin (land of micro-breweries) when he heard someone ask if they had any gluten-free beers. He immediately thought of me and asked why I hadn’t done a post on gluten-free beer for Oktoberfest. It was a great idea. I immediately called up my dad, the beer connoisseur of the family and invited him over for a gluten-free beer taste test. After a few more phone calls and trip to Total Wine and More we were set for a gluten-free beer tasting. All beer prices are what was paid at Total Wine and More and may vary from store to store. These are all honest opinions and I was in no way compensated for any reviews.

4 Easy Tips for Dining Out Gluten-Free

4 Easy Tips for Dining Out Gluten-Free

Ever since my daughter was born, going out to eat has been a rarity. If we do go out, we are usually grabbing something while I’m in a rush to get to somewhere else. It happens so frequently that I even wrote a post about 7 places you can eat when you are in a rush. Even though it doesn’t happen often, the rare occasion does exist when my husband and I get a babysitter and get to go out for some alone time. One of the few pluses to having Celiac Disease is that I always get to choose the restaurant.
