Me: How many years do you think we’ll stay up late on Christmas Eve making things for the kids?
Doug: Not long enough.
There’s something I could use your help with.
My family’s food diet is free of gluten and dairy, and normally that’s fine. This season though, surrounded by plates of cookies, hot chocolate, and sweet mercy, do Americans put cheese on everything? … well, it became a little hard to bear.
My standby recipes weren’t enough, and so I’m putting out a call for some family-favorite party food recipes that happen to be gluten-free and dairy-free. The kind where you could serve them to your guests who can eat anything, and you get to exclaim, “Wow, that’s delicious!” — not “I guess that’s not bad considering it doesn’t have flour or butter in it.” Because I don’t want to settle for “that’s not bad” any more.
I know those recipes are out there, but as I’ve been trying to look away from PW’s cinnamon rolls, I haven’t seen very many lately. Surely you can help me, right?
Here are the guidelines: No butter, no milk, no cream, no cheese, no white or wheat flour, or any other gluten or dairy food. Sugar is allowed in moderation. Eggs are fine, so are nuts. Bacon is highly favored and receives bonus points.
My goodness, so many helpful responses and ideas! Thank you!
