Gluten Free Holidays

Dear Friends,

Around the world every culture celebrates special holidays.

For the United States, "Thanksgiving Day" is the kick-off for the holiday season, such as Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Year's Day.

Each year at, we add to our collection of delicious recipes so you can enjoy gluten free holidays, worry free!

Better still, these recipes were created so family and friends won't know they are eating gluten-free.

What they will know, is that they are enjoying the best mouthwatering food they have ever tasted!

That means you can quit cooking two meals, one gluten-free meal for you, and one for everyone else.

Half the work means you can spend more time having fun instead of slaving away in the kitchen.

Most recipes can be tweaked to accommodate other food allergies; check out recipe variations and consult the Gluten-free Substitutions Chart for more guidance.

To make your gluten free holidays less stressful, click here to see the "Gluten Free Thanksgiving Celebration" newsletter from a previous year for a few tips you might find helpful.

Start preparing for gluten free holidays early and make what recipes you can, ahead of time.

Giving Thanks

Though the origin of the early American Thanksgiving feast remains historically debatable, that this harvest-time holiday was greatly influenced by New England colonists is an accepted food fact.

In commemoration, we feature a gluten-free holiday menu of historic recipes passed down through the generations of our family, one of the leading families that established the first colony in Vermont.
