Cookbook Giveaway!

I'm happy to announce the release of my new cookbook, The Secrets of Gluten-Free Baking! To celebrate, I will be giving away 2 free copies! I'm so excited about this new book because I feel that there are a lot of people besides myself who would like healthier options to gluten-free baking besides the refined starches and gums found in most gluten-free baking. The Secrets of Gluten-Free Baking shares what I have learned to use only whole food ingredients to make delicious gluten-free recipes. Recipe sections include yeast and non-yeast breads and wraps, pancakes and cereals, sweet breads and muffins, cookies, crackers, cakes and desserts, crusts and things, and a bonus recipe section which includes toppings, dips, sauces, etc. Here's a sneak peak at some of the pages inside.



Whether for yourself or as a Christmas for a friend or loved one who is on a gluten-free diet, you may enter to win by following the instructions along the top of the page or by liking The Secrets of Gluten-Free Baking page on Facebook here. The contest ends December 18, 2013, after which two winners will be announced. Both will receive a free copy of The Secrets of Gluten-Free Baking.

Vegetable Ranch Dutch-Oven Pizza, Gluten-Free!

I had the privilege of making gluten-free pizza on Fresh Living. Click HERE to watch. :)



Here's the recipe for the pizza I made--Vegetable Ranch Dutch-Oven Pizza:

Dutch Oven Pizza Crust (From The Secrets of Gluten Free Baking by Jillayne Clements)
Makes: 1 medium pizza crust • Prep: 30 minutes
Rest: 12–24 hours • Bake: 20 minutes at 400ºF

Ingredients:
1 cup certified GF oat flour (I buy rolled oats and run them through my handy dandy NutriBullet.)

1½ cups sprouted rice flour (Sprouting rice is super easy and makes a sweeter and less gritty product. But you can just use super fine brown rice flour you have on hand.)

½ cup golden flax ground into meal

1½ cups water

½ Tbsp. yeast

2 Tbsp. warm water

1 Tbsp. dehydrated cane sugar

2 tsp. sea salt

Directions:

In a glass bowl, stir together flours, flax, and 1½
cups water. Cover with a damp cloth and set in
a warm place for 12–24 hours. After this time,
soften yeast in the warm water with the sugar. Stir
in salt and pour into dough. Mix until incorporated.
Use a little flour of choice for handling. To bake
in the Dutch oven, preheat in 400ºF oven. Pour
a little oil in the bottom of the Dutch oven, about 2
tablespoons, and spread around. On a well floured
pizza board, roll out pizza dough into a small circle.
Slide into bottom of Dutch oven and carefully press
dough to the sides of the pan. Replace lid and cook
for about 20 to 30 minutes at 400ºF. When done, top with
Pizza Sauce (below) and toppings and bake an
additional 15–20 minutes.

Ranch Sauce 

Ingredients:

3/4 cup Vegenaise
(Vegenaise is a healthier alternative mayonnaise. I use the type made with grape seed oil.)

1/2 cup Greek yogurt, plain (Greek Gods is a good, thick brand)

1/2-3/4 tsp. sea salt

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1-2 Tbsps. dehydrated cane sugar

3 tsp. raw apple cider vinegar

1–2 tsp. water, milk, or whey (optional)

½ tsp. parsley

Directions:

In a bowl, stir together Vegenaise and yogurt
until creamy. Stir in remaining ingredients then spread desired amount over pre-baked pizza crust.

Top sauce with veggies such as sliced zucchini, fresh spinach, bell peppers, mushrooms, and olives sprinkle with a little cheese, and return to the oven for an additional 15-20 minutes.    

I'm So Excited!

I'm SO excited for my cookbook, The Secrets of Gluten Free Baking: Delicious Whole Food Recipes, to come out in December. I just received the pdf version of it, and my publishers did an amazing job with it. It's like a beautiful piece of artwork only it's a cookbook. I like that the recipes and directions and pictures of the final product are all on one page. I love the color on every page. Just beautiful! I'm looking forward to the day I can cook from it instead of searching for fifteen minutes through my recipe cards whenever I want to bake something. :)

"Temporary Fills" by Mandisa

I LOVE this song by Mandisa, Temporary Fills. If you have a chance, you can look at her story behind the song on YouTube. Nothing temporary, what is sought for in addiction, can fill the void inside that only God can fill.

Click here to listen. :) Have a happy summer day.

Lyrics: from AZlyrics.com

"Temporary Fills"

People goin on and on
They don't know what they got wrong
This world won't keep you satisfied
They say You gotta buy this
Wear this, drive that car
'Cause that's the kind of thing
That makes you who you are
But don't keep throwin that my way

No more temporary fills
I want a love that's real
Take everything I have and fill me up inside
I'm done looking for the quick fix
Jesus your love is all I'll ever need
No more temporary fills

I've turned every rock and stone
Gone everywhere there was to go
But I only felt better for a while
'Cause nothin can replace you
Erase you from my heart
And that's the kind of thing
That makes you who you are
Your the reason I can say

No more temporary fills
I want a love that's real
Take everything I have and fill me up inside
I'm done looking for the quick fix
Jesus your love is all I'll ever need


And nothin temporary could ever make me
Feel the way you do
'Cause what you've given to me
I know that it will last my whole life through

Woah
No more temporary fills
I want a love that's real
Take everything I have and fill me up inside
I'm done looking for the quick fix
Jesus, your love is all I'll ever need
No more temporary fills
No, no more temporary
No, no more temporary
No, no more temporary
No more hidin'

"Say The Words"

Just a reminder to share with others the love we feel with them. "Say The Words" by DC Talk.

"Say The Words"

(You gotta say it, you gotta say it)

Solomon once wrote:
"Better is open rebuke, than hidden love"
So say the words...

Silence is golden but these are the words
That the world needs to hear
(brothers and sisters)
Terms of compassion will cause a reaction
As love drives them near

But still we choose to hide behind the face of pride
Pretending we are blind to the calling
This is my point and case, if hate can be erased
With such a simple phrase, why are we stalling?

[chorus]
Say the words, say the words, say "I love you"
Say the words I long to hear
Say the words, say the words, say "I love you"
Say the words I long to hear

Ya gotta say it, ya gotta say it, say it
Ya gotta say it, ya gotta say it

Some just assume we already know
Of the love that they feel
(brothers and sisters)
Some have a heartfelt emotion
But never the words to reveal

I think we all relate, so why are we afraid
To let our hearts convey what we're feeling?
There is a world in need with hungry souls to feed
And love can intercede if we're willing, so...

[repeat chorus]

Ya gotta say it, ya gotta say it, say it
Ya gotta say it, ya gotta say it

(check this out)
The word love, well it was once overused
Back in the 70's the word was abused
But I refuse to let love be diluted
We can't allow physical lust to intrude it
Or pollute it cause there ain't no excuse
For the greatest gift of all to be abused
So choose to lose the pride that may tug at you
Don't be afraid of the words "I love you"

[repeat chorus]

Choose to lose the pride that may tug at you
Don't be afraid of the words "I love you"

Won't you say the words
Say the words
Say the words "I love you"
(You've got to say it)
Say the words
Say the words
Say them over and over
(Yeah, you've got to say it, say it)

Choose to lose the pride that may tug at you
Don't be afraid of the words "I love you"


"Listen To The Sound"

This is a nice mellow song about hope in the Savior. "Listen To The Sound" by Building 429.

"Listen To The Sound"

Are you in over your head?
Are you on water so deep your drowning?
Do you think you've been left
And there is no on to feel your hurting
Well everybody has been there
And everybody's felt lost
If you're in over your head lift it up, lift it up... oh!

[Chorus]
Listen to the sound of hope
That's rising up over your old horizon
Listen to the sound, listen to the sound...
And listen to the sound of a new beginning of
This is where the old is ending
Listen to the sound, listen to the sound...

I hear you say your alone
I hear you sayin' that you'll never make it
I've got to tell you, you're wrong
Cuz' I have been down this path you're takin'
You'll never know what faith is
Till' you don't understand
Sometimes it takes the silence
To finally hear his plans...oh!

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
I once was lost but now I'm found [2x]

Listen to the sound of hope
That's rising up over your old horizon
Listen to the sound, listen to the sound...
And listen to the sound of a new beginning of
This is where the old is ending
Listen to the sound, listen to the sound...oh!

His grace is reaching for us
His grace is reaching out
Listen to the sound, listen to the sound
Wherever you are... [2x]
