Hi Sheila,

Good to see you posting. I hope your show goes great for you next week. I found a couple of recipes that might work for you.

There's even a recipe that would work to make a pizza crust, then you could do a Cool veggie pizza thing. That's a good one for the superstarter kit.

Oh yeah, if you need to borrow any tools, just let me know... I'll gladly help you out if I can. Let me know if you need anything else, I can keep looking for you if you want.

Have a great day!

Susie

Hi Sheila, Thank you for reaching out for help! Making something gluten-free for a party can seem daunting, but with the right ingredients and some creativity, you can make a delicious and safe dish for everyone to enjoy. Here are some tips and ideas to help you out: 1. Start with gluten-free ingredients: When looking for ingredients for your dish, make sure to check the labels to ensure they are gluten-free. Some common gluten-free ingredients include rice, quinoa, corn, potatoes, and oats (make sure they are labeled as gluten-free oats). You can also use gluten-free flours such as almond flour, coconut flour, or a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend. 2. Use gluten-free substitutes: If your recipe calls for ingredients that are not gluten-free, you can easily find substitutes. For example, you can use gluten-free breadcrumbs instead of regular breadcrumbs, or gluten-free pasta instead of regular pasta. Just make sure to read the labels and double-check that they are gluten-free. 3. Get creative with vegetables and proteins: Vegetables and proteins are naturally gluten-free, so you have a lot of options to work with. You can make a veggie platter with hummus or a dip, or make a protein-based dish like grilled chicken skewers or shrimp cocktail. 4. Try a gluten-free dessert: For a sweet treat, you can make a gluten-free dessert using gluten-free flours and ingredients like almond flour, coconut flour, or gluten-free oats. You can make cookies, brownies, or even a fruit crumble. 5. Use your starter kit materials: Your starter kit may have some gluten-free options, such as gluten-free crackers or chips. You can use these as a base for a dip or topping for a salad. Remember to always double-check labels and make sure to use separate utensils and cooking tools when preparing gluten-free dishes to avoid cross-contamination. And don't be afraid to get creative and experiment with different flavors and ingredients! I hope these tips help you make a delicious gluten-free dish for your party. Have a great time! Best,
 

1. How can I ensure that my gluten-free party prep is safe for those with celiac disease?

To ensure that your gluten-free party prep is safe for those with celiac disease, it is important to use ingredients and utensils that have not come into contact with gluten-containing products. This includes using separate cutting boards, utensils, and preparation surfaces.

4. How do I know if a product is gluten-free?

To determine if a product is gluten-free, look for a gluten-free label or certification on the packaging. You can also check the ingredient list for any gluten-containing ingredients, such as wheat, barley, or rye. It is important to note that some products may be naturally gluten-free but could still be processed in facilities that also process gluten-containing products, so it is important to read labels carefully.

Some delicious gluten-free desserts that are perfect for parties include flourless chocolate cake, gluten-free brownies, fruit tarts with gluten-free crust, and gluten-free cookies.
