Learning Through Error | Halloween Treat Edition

Most things translate well into gluten-free, but some things don’t. Two years ago I bought a Halloween recipe magazine and while they’re gluten-full recipes, many I can make gluten-free. Here is what I was going to make tonight:

 The GF cornbread didn’t quite work because it fell apart when I tried hallowing it. The chili I bought had gluten in it, so I used chipped beef that I flavoured like chili.

Wasn’t bad, but next time I’m going to make just a cornbread coffin that I won’t fill and the content will be outside. The ghosts can float over a GF chili bog to the coffin. Hey, I’m learning and we all learn through error, that’s how we grow. Ghosts didn’t quite turn out, but they were delicious.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Those GF Halloween treats you made are creepy and yet they look delicious. My mouth is watering. I don’t know if I could eat something that came out of a coffin, and I am spooked at the thought of ghosts floating across a chili bog, but I’d be willing to try any and all of those foods. I just thought of a creepy sight gag and pun you could try. Make the cornbread coffin, place a layer of green peas in the bottom and have the lid read: “Rest in Peas.” 🙂 You likey? I hope you find more H-ween recipes to convert into ghoulish GF meals.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
