Trying to serving Holiday dinners everyone can enjoy can be stressful. One common request is for gluten-free options.

An all-new collection of comfort food classics made gluten-free.

Donna and Heather published their first gluten-free cookbook nearly 20 years ago and, at the time, they were truly at the forefront when it came to creating delicious recipes suitable for a gluten-free lifestyle. Many bestsellers later, they are back with a brand new collection of gluten-free recipes that evoke the wonderful feeling of comfort foods.
These are the recipes you fondly remember from your childhood, as well as modern interpretations of what spells comfort food today. You will not miss the gluten, nor could you even imagine that Oven-Fried Chicken or Chicken Pot Pie could taste this good. In fact, we bet no one would ever guess that the stupendous Spaghetti and Meatballs or Tuna Noodle Casserole were gluten-free.

Ginger Snaps

Makes 36 cookies (1 per serving)
Donna traditionally serves these cookies at Christmas but enjoy them anytime.
Tips
If the dough sticks to the cookie cutter, dip cutter in a saucer of sorghum flour or return dough to the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled.
Watch cookies carefully while baking: a couple of extra minutes can cause them to burn on the bottom.

Cancer sucks. I’ve had precancerous growths removed. My guy has had deal with skin cancer lesions, no fun. I’ve lost family and friends to different types of cancer.

How do you get rid of Halloween candy? Take the poll Enter to win $50 gift card

It’s Halloween and Trick or Treaters are bringing home the bounty!

via GIPHY

I remember coming home with a sack full goodies. I’d dump it on the table and Mom would sort through it all. She would pick out her favorites like Mary Janes and candy cigarettes.
I got most of the chocolate. I never cared for gum. Most of that went on the trade pile.

via GIPHY

Ahh the trade pile. Did you do that as kids too? The day after Trick or Treat us kids would swap gum for lollipops or peanuts for smarties.
Now that I’ve jogged your memory, take the poll!
Then enter your thoughts or recipe ideas in a comment below why you picked that answer for a chance at a $50 gift card!

What is your favorite way to use all that Halloween Candy?
