Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and oats. In some people, eating or drinking anything containing gluten can cause different types of undesirable reactions. How about trying this recipe for a totally gluten free Chicken Caesar Salad. Enjoy the goodness!

Ingredients:

1/3 head Romaine lettuce

3/4 cup gluten-free croutons

1/4 cup gluten-free Caesar salad dressing

1/2 oz. anchovy fillets (optional — should be gluten-free, but verify)

Sea salt

Fresh ground pepper

Preparation:

Tear Romaine lettuce into bite-sized pieces and place in large salad mixing bowl.

Spoon Caesar salad dressing over lettuce, then toss until all pieces of lettuce are liberally covered with dressing. Add gluten-free croutons and anchovies (if desired), and toss until thoroughly mixed.

Split into two separate servings on salad plates and add sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Valentine’s Day Fondue

Valentine’s Day is all about showering your significant other with love and one of the best ways to show you care is to make them a sweet treat! One of the most versatile and satisfying desserts is chocolate fondue. It’s also perfect for Valentine’s Day because it’s effortlessly romantic. Here’s a simple, foolproof recipe:

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 stick unsalted butter

1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels

1 (12-ounce) package milk chocolate morsels

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine cream and butter. Bring mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly. Remove pan from heat. Add semisweet and milk chocolate morsels. Stir until melted and smooth. Cool slightly. Transfer to a fondue pot, chafing dish, or ceramic bowl. Serve immediately with sliced apples, sliced bananas, strawberries, cookies, pretzels, and pound cake.

Don’t forget the wine! We recommend a rich Shiraz, it will really complement the sweet flavors of the chocolate. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Homemade Whipped Cream

One of the best things about dessert is that it is universal — everyone loves it! And what can make or break a great dessert from an average one is the whipped cream. Homemade is always best, and it’s much easier to make than you’d think. Here’s how:

1 cup cold heavy cream (the colder the better!)

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Whip the cream in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment (you can also use a hand mixer). When it starts to thicken, add the sugar and vanilla and continue to beat until stiff peaks are formed. Be sure not to overbeat!

The small amount of extra effort really goes a long way! What are some of your favorite dessert toppings?
