It is hard to believe that the holidays are here already. We just got back from Europe and are trying hard to get back in the swing of our normal lives. Jet lag is murder! But we have parties to plan for, presents to wrap, and these Fun Festive Holiday Appetizers to cruise through, looking for my next winner!

To convert recipes to gluten-free, substitute with GF ingredients where possible or if not crucial, leave it out. If you are baking, use a gluten-free flour blend and use 120 grams per cup of flour called for in the recipe. Add 1/4 tsp of xanthan gum or 1/2 tsp of psyllium husk powder per cup. They both help avoid results that are crumbly. If you have questions, you can find a lot of information above by clicking on the “Gluten-Free” tab at the top of the page and you are welcome to contact me for more assistance.
