Happy Holidays

December is a very busy month and so the next dinner will not be until January 2007. If anybody has any suggestions as to where we should go for the January dinner please submit your requests to me by email by the new year. If we don't go to your spot this time, hopefully we'll make it next time. We are looking for somewhere a little cheaper for the next dinner, since we will probably all be broke following the holiday season (Entrees less than $12/person). Also, if anyone has any good holiday recipes, I'd love to post them! We all need good GF treats too!

Thanks to everybody who joined for dinners in 2006!

My husband and I are relocating to Edmonton sometime in the new year & hope to join your dinner group (still young enough we are 33!:) Anyway, this is my favorite gluten free cookie recipe so thought I'd share. It got rave reviews when I made some for our Celiac Xmas party here in Medicine Hat AB. These cookies are great because they can be stored in a regular cookie jar without drying out like most gluten free baked goods. I have a few more recipes I will send later. They are from my new cookbook "Gluten Free & Fabulous" available at

GOURMET DARK CHOCOLATE COOKIES (gluten and dairy free)

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups gluten free icing sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups chopped nuts of choice
1 Tbs gluten free vanilla extract
4 egg whites

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Put everything except the egg whites and vanilla into a large bowl and mix with a wooden spoon for 1 minute. In a seperate bowl, combine the vanilla & egg whites. Add this to the dry mixture. With a mixer on medium speed, blend everything for 2 minutes.
Scoop the dough by heaping teaspoonfuls onto a parchment lined cookie sheet, or these cookies stick. Space a few inches apart, they may spread while baking. Lower oven temperature to 320 degrees F and bake for 8 minutes or until small cracks appear on the surface. Cool slightly then very carefully transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. They will have a nice shiny glaze. - Easy or what!
