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... read more

Are you ready for March? Tips for Baking, and News for You

Greetings to our tribe, We hope you had a FAT Tuesday! Here are The Gluten Escape ® March updates for you. We’ve added a new section called “Tips for Baking Gluten Free”.  If you have questions about baking at home feel free to submit them to  I’ll do my best to answer them! Tip for Baking Gluten Free: All about texture! Want to avoid that gritty texture in gluten free items?  EASY SOLUTION: Don’t use or purchase products with white rice flour.  Bonus: White rice flour has little to no nutritional value (and no fiber) so avoiding it will generally help increase the nutrition of your gluten free choices.  How do we make our product textures? We blend 6 flours (and none of them are white rice flour). Our blend is now available for purchase. Our chocolate cake recipe is on the bag. (Our blend is a cup-for-cup substitute, but allows you to control the texture with simple xanthan gum directions.) UPDATES: It’s March and that means Daylight Savings Time, St Patty’s Day, and the first day of Spring!!!! Here are the specials. Order before March 7 at 5 p.m. for these prices.  (Not to be combined with any other offer or coupons please.) Daylight Savings Time starts Sunday, March 12. Let us help you save an hour cooking. We’ll be running a cinnamon roll special, 4 cinnamon rolls for $10.99!!! Pick up anytime Saturday (3/11) before your clocks spring forward!  Call now 303-694-9999. St Patty’s Day, Friday, March 17. Get your Irish on! Irish soda bread at $6.99 a loaf.  Choose plain or spotted dog (and specify... read more
