That smell of the freshly baked pretzels in the mall or airports makes me crave their chewy doughy texture. It’s a craving i’ve had since I eliminated gluten from my diet. A craving I have yet to find a quench for until now. Thanks to The Delight Gluten-Free Cookbook written by Vanessa Weisbrod, executive editor of Delight Gluten-Free Magazine, and her team. This cookbook is a great resource for anyone on a gluten-free diet, whether you are just beginning or you have been eating gluten-free for years. The first section goes over the basics of being gluten free including a list of gluten free ingredients, how to shop, how to substitute for gluten ingredients, and lists of available resources. There a so many great recipes including breads, soups, salads, snacks, side dishes, main dishes, cocktails and desserts.
I decided to try the Honey Buttered Pretzel Bites with Cheddar Cheese & Beer dip. The recipe was really easy for both the pretzel bites and the cheese dip and both turned out fantastic. They make a great appetizer for parties. They are best right out of the oven and heat up well when you microwave them for 30 seconds. Your guests would never know they are gluten-free.
