Are you baking for the holidays yet? We started over the weekend and have already devoured our first batch of cookies. And…over the next several weeks we will spend a lot of time in the kitchen baking up all our favorite holiday recipes. Spending time in the kitchen is one of my favorite ways to spend the holidays.
Baking and cooking are a large part of our holiday traditions. However, with all the things in mind, one needs to also come to terms with the mess that it brings! The aftermath of baking often brings with it the headache of cleaning the countertops repeatedly, especially if you have kids who are helping you out. What might make it easier though, are easy to clean appliances and countertops (like the ones available at this Phoenix Quartz Countertops supply and installation company). It tends to help out a lot actually!
However, with a dye allergy in our home, we have become more and more sensitive to the struggles others face who may be sensitive to things like gluten, dairy, etc. I know the holidays are difficult for someone with a dye allergy because everything tends to be covered in the same shade of festive color. For those with a gluten allergy, the holidays will be equally difficult without the opportunity to sample a single christmas cookie. Might not be the same for those who like to live a gluten-free lifestyle, but then. However, keeping in mind all of these things, I went on a quest to find some great gluten-free cookie recipes that will provide a nice alternative for your gluten-free loved ones.
