gluten free summer BBQ and gluten free potato salad!


In Chicago we have had a long drawn out winter.  Finally last week winter turned to summer–the temperature went from 40 to 90 degrees overnight.

Tonight for friends and family I will roll out my favorite Summer foods- all gluten free!

guacamole /corn chips
three different salsas-Frontera brand
mini hot dogs rolled in causeyourespecial pizza dough

early summer tomatoes on homemade gluten free foccaccia bread (aka bruschetta)
grilled corn on the cob
Grammie Mollie’s potato salad-recipe below

hamburger sliders served on warmed and buttered UDI’s new hamburger buns


fried chicken tenders and sweet baby rays bbq sauce

fudgy chocolate brownies
ice cream sandwiches made from home made chocolate chip cookies and baskin robbins ice cream
apple pie two ways

homemade bread made from causeyourespecial traditional white bread mix-
toast or broil thick slices of bread, rub the slices with garlic-sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper-

guacamole–a little chunky, but still divine!
oh ya baby–who doesn’t love
better then “regular” fried chicken
apple pie with a crumble top
classic fudgy chocolate brownies
baskin robbins mint chip ice cream wedged in between homemade chocolate chip cookies
Potato Salad
4 baking potatoes 
1 sweet onion, chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise, not low fat
1 Tablespoon white vinegar
3 Tablespoons celery seed
1 Tablespoon grainy mustard
2 Tablespoons sugar

clean the potatoes and boil them until fork tender about 20 minutes
take the potatoes out of the hot water and rinse with cold water
allow the potatoes to cool and then peel off the skin
cut the potatoes into small chunks–uniform pieces will look better

in a separate mixing bowl combine all ingredients- gently toss thru with the potatoes.  season to taste with salt and pepper. refrigerate until ready to serve.

    I was under the impression that while there are some Baskin Robbins ice creams that are wheat-free, none should be considered gluten-free. Is that true?
