When you’ve been gluten-free for awhile, you might have an arsenal of recipes you’ll make for Thanksgiving. (Then again, it’s alway a joy to try new recipes too.) But if you’re new at this, Thanksgiving is the hardest holiday of the year. All that gluten: stuffing, pumpkin pie, casseroles with cream of mushroom soup, rolls, gravy, cornbread, and all that cross-contamination, on top of it. I’ve heard tales of people eating nothing but salad for Thanksgiving dinner, to make sure they don’t get sick.
We’re going to release a 2013 update of Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Baking app next week (estimated 11/15). We’re happy to help you make pumpkin pies (and coconut banana pie), dinner rolls, apple cakes, sandwich bread, stuffing, cornbread, and all the fixings for the meal. We also give you a run-down on gluten-free flours and the equipment you’ll need to make this an entirely gluten-free Thanksgiving.
One kicker though: if you have a First-Generation iPad, you should buy the app right now. Due to the nature of how quickly technology changes, the first-generation iPad is limited to version 5 of the IOS system, and the update will be available for versions 6 and above.
(iPad folks with versions 2 and above will be fine. And if you’ve purchased Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Baking in the past, you’ll get a free update once it goes live on the Apple Store.)
By the way, that includes us. We won’t be able to access our own app on our iPad! That’s pretty funny.
So, we’re also working hard right now to turn the basic information on the iPad app into a digital download, so you can purchase all the recipes and tips (minus the videos and interactivity of the iPad, of course) and have it all at your fingertips. We’re also including a grain-free flour recipe, which you can use in all the recipes, in case you need to be grain-free. That digital download will also be live sometime next week.
Oh, and to answer the inevitable question: nope, we don’t have an Android version of the app. That’s an entirely different operating system. Our wonderful designer, Pableaux Johnson, works in iPad land!
Start stocking up on your flours and making your fingers ready to crimp pie dough. Let’s do Thanksgiving together.
Stuffing. Raise your hand if hot stuffing covered in gravy is your favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal. (Raises hand.) Find some gluten-free bread, follow the technique you see in this video and you will…
