Mrs. G.F. -- Recipes for a Gluten Free Life (Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger)

When I first read Mrs. G.F.'s "Recipes for a Gluten Free Life" blog, I felt like I knew her. I felt like I could walk down my close-knit street of neighbors and find her swaying graciously on a front porch swing. A glass of lemonade would be in her hand, and a tray full of amaretti cookies would be on the table beside her.

Mrs. G.F.'s recipes are simply classic. Most are relatively easy to prepare, have a short list of ingredients, and are full of fresh taste and flavor. I have made MANY of Mrs. GF's recipes. Some of my absolute favorites are:

The new recipe that I made was Mrs. G.F.'s Amaretti Cookies! I had actually seen several blogs recently talk about these easy, naturally gluten free cookies and I really wanted to try them. They are absolutely delicious!! Of course DO NOT overcook them, as I did with my first batch and spent 30 minutes viciously attacking the bottoms of them with my microplane grater (boy I love that thing!) I added mini hershey's chocolate kisses to the tops of my amaretti cookies and they were quite yummy! We'll definitely be making these again!!

These cookies would be perfect for a last minute dessert, pot luck, or a children's class party! They were SO easy and so yummy, and I love Mrs. G.F.'s picture of them on her blog!

Here are some of Mrs. G.F.'s recipes that I have in my ever growing, "To make" list! I can't wait to try some of these!

Okay, so really I just want to try ALL of her amazing recipes! Each recipe I have ever made in her collection has been amazing, simple, and delicious! You must give Mrs. G.F.'s recipes a try!


This post is part of a new monthly blogging event hosted by Sea at Book of Yum. The event is called, "Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger." Check out her blog for more details and for the first monthly round up coming up soon!

  1. They look beautiful. I was here looking for which recipe of yours I will make as you are my adpoted blogger and here you are already done! I better get busy.

  2. Thank you, thank you for the link to those cookies! I had just posted about my awful experience with gluten free cookies, so I am overjoyed to find a new recipie. Can't wait to try them this weekend.

  3. You did a wonderful job on the peanut butter cookies. I love Mrs. GF's recipes too. One of my family favorites is her recipe for chicken fingers...totally yummy.

  4. Sweetie!!

    Thank you for such a beautiful post! I haven't been online much lately, and today was the first day I have had time to stop by and catch up on blogs! (My son is taking a surprise nap; he will be up any minute!)

    What a lovely surprise to see all this that you have written.

    Thank you. I wish we could catch up on a porch together; I have felt like you are a kindred spirit too.

    And, do you know how many people have asked me for your cranberry cobbler dish recipe? I would say at least a couple dozen! That is a hit wherever I take it.
