Directions for Thanksgiving holiday items 2017

Take and Bake Monkey Bread First, your Monkey Bread needs to thaw. It will thaw in the refrigerator overnight, or for 6 (or so) hours on the counter. When thawed, it needs to come to room temperature.  Remove the plastic wrap and plastic top, and place the pan out on the counter uncovered. In general, an uncovered pan will come to room temperature within 30-60 minutes. (It depends on room temperature.)  Touch the black pan. If it feels cold the Monkey Bread is not warm enough to bake. (Be patient.) Wait until it is only slight chilled. The yeast will start to activate and the top pieces of the Bread will start to crack (and rise).  Once you see them crack and rise turn on the oven to 375 degrees. NOTE: This product will not double in size but it will rise vertically a ¼ – ½” above the edge of the pan.  Your Monkey Bread will continue to rise as it bakes. When the oven reaches 375 place the uncovered pan on a cookie sheet in the middle rack of the oven. Bake to an internal temperature of 195, or for 45 -50 minutes.  When it comes out of the oven immediately invert the pan onto a plate for serving.  Drizzle and serve warm. Monkey Bread is free of gluten, dairy, soy, peanut, and egg, and is vegan.   Take and Bake Cinnamon Rolls Let the Cinnamon rolls thaw for 3 ½ to 4 hours on the counter or leave them in the refrigerator overnight. They will thaw more quickly with the clear plastic top removed. You must...

September without gluten, dairy, soy, peanut, egg (!) And our vegan meatless options

It’s September. WOW. CRAZY. Usually September is that month which rolls in and spells the coming of Fall with hot days and cool nights!  Yet, this month has already been upended by hurricane Harvey, fires, flooding, and now Irma.  Harvey flooded food warehouses in Houston and the remaining food was quickly depleted by the shelters.  Trying my hardest to stay away from the “dark side” I sent a truckload of food to Houston (simply bread, veggies, and water). The people I encountered in this process were generous nice people, and loving beings.  That’s my America and it was heartwarming to feel it. Enough philosophy (but I do remind you that smiling is free). September at The Gluten Escape means Rosh Hashanah (September 20). Please order your round holiday challah early and let us know if you’d like raisins or not. ($12.49.) The first day of Fall (Autumn) is September 22. That means the start of PUMPKIN EVERYTHING. We know you’ve been anxious and we’ll bring back pumpkin scones, muffins, donuts, cakes, bundt cakes, ETC. In October, watch for Halloween cookies and cupcakes….oh my! I’ll be reading candy ingredients to try and help! If you want smaller sugar cookies for parties order them early.  (6/$9.99). We’ll do our best. And then November. Woosh. I’ll get the Thanksgiving specials and prices out early and PLEASE order early. We have many new members of our clan and we want to serve everyone. For us to stage and prepare the right amount of dressing, stuffing, pies, rolls etc we need your pre orders! Lastly, we are growing, WOOHOO, and looking for another part time...
