Two Twins... And a Glutard

Your awesome Tagline

As I woke up on a hot Friday morning, devastated I made my way downstairs to the kitchen.  I was annoyed to discover absolutely no gluten free foods for me to eat and as my stomach growled with hunger I decided to order in lunch.  I  had previously learned from my “gluten free registry” iPhone app (aka the best iPhone app ever) that  Bill’s Pizzeria in Newton Center has started serving gluten free pizza. The  place is located right in Newton Centre, Ma on Beacon Street, and their  delivery service encompasses a larger area. Thus,  I decided to try it out. Bills had been in a staple in my life pre-celiac diet,  and I was ecstatic to be able to once again include it in my repertoire  of GF restaurants. 
 I ordered the SPANAKOPIZZA, which includes fresh tomato sauce and a four- cheese blend topped with spinach, crumbled feta, and chopped garlic.
Unfortunately, their GF pizza only comes in the large size, but was well worth the slightly high $16 price.  I can safely say that this gluten free pizza was the best I have ever had.  The crust was chewy and not dense like most gluten free pizza crusts.  I highly recommend everyone, whether you are on a gluten free diet or just trying to eat healthier, that you try the gluten free pizza from Bill’s and you will not be disappointed.

Cheesecake Brownies (Gluten-Free)

By Wendy – May 22, 2011Posted in: Recipes

O natural light, natural light, wherefore art thou natural light? You are my one true love. The thing that I hold most dear. It is you o natural light that dictates my every move in the kitchen.

For it is you o natural light that can make or break a blog post for me. When you shower your presence down upon me I bask in what you have given me. If you hide among the clouds and linger only to briefly show your face I rely upon the harshest of unnatural light which is unforgiving.

Is there something I can do to bring us closer together? A dance? A prayer?

Heck, I’d even be willing to clean the garbage disposal if it meant you would show your face more often. Alas, in the interim, I will take pictures like those I’ve included here where you decided to peak through and hang out for a bit. Give me a call when you want to hang for a while and I’ll be there in a heartbeat.

Flourless Cheesecake Brownies

INGREDIENTS

Brownie Batter:

1/2 cup whole almonds

1/3 cup brown rice flour

1 cup Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into chunks

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

Cheesecake Batter:

8 ounce cream cheese, room temperature

1/3 cup sugar

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees with a rack in the lower third of the oven. Line an 8 x 8 inch metal baking pan across the bottom and up two opposite sides with parchment paper.

2.) Add almonds and brown rice flour to a food processor and pulse until the nuts are finely ground. Set aside.

3.) Place the chocolate, butter and salt in the top of a large double boiler over barely simmering water. Stir frequently until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove the bowl and let cool for 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar and vanilla. Stir in the eggs one at a time. Add the almond and brown rice flour mixture and stir until moistened, and then mix briskly about 40 strokes.

4.) Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly. Set aside.

5.) In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla extract until smooth. Drop in dollops onto prepared brownie batter. Gently swirl two batters with a butter knife.

6.) Bake for 40-45 minutes until the brownies and cheesecake are set. A knife inserted into the cheesecake mixture should come out clean. The edges of the brownie should be lightly browned. Cool in the pan completely before cutting and serving.

Servings: 16
