Do any of you remember your favorite childhood snack?  And are unable to enjoy it now that you are gluten free??  Well I surely do… the perfectly salted, crunchy, couldn’t get enough of,  Cheez-It.  Well after several attempts, here is my easy gf version of the Cheez-It.  They are so good, I have to hide them from my children or they are gone instantly!  You can try it with any of your favorite cheddars, I like to keep these classic with sharp cheddar. They keep well for up to a week in a tightly sealed container.

This dish was inspired by a curry recipe I saw in a Food and Wine Magazine.  I love the idea of adding nuts, fruit and coconut milk into curry, it really rounds out the flavor and adds texture.  It’s great served over rice or I […]
