This will be my first xmas eating g/f, so wondering what everyone is planning on making.

I'm thinking about making candy cane ice cream, and making the family gravy recipe g.f

What are you planning on making?

Sounds great!

I had intended to make some sort of edible gifts but things have been too hectic this year.

I'm also thinking about mini christmas cakes.

Mini Christmas cakes sound great!

I'm flicking through VCIYCJ now, trying to decide on some cookies.

Me too! I need a Christmas dinner dessert. I'm making tofurky for my dad (I may eat some) and I have a tempeh/cider recipe and I'm going to make mashed potatoes (I'm interested in http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/aart ... index.html but I don't think that meshes w/ my other plans) and stuffing for my dad and I don't really know what else.

appifanie, Ive been playing around with gluten free candy cane recipes including fudge, ice cream and cookies.

As for the mini xmas cakes, a friend of made these for me. Replacing the cake with g/f ginger cookies and they were awesome. I am thinking I will either do the same or make a g/f cake. Also, they looks really cute! http://sunbeamfoods.com.au/recipe-library/cakes-puddings/little-fruit-fudge-puddings

Sorry I wasn't on here in time for Christmas, but if anybody's interested in anything for the future...
My sister and I made pretty traditional stuff:
GF chickpea cutlets (while making the cutlets I made 2 batches - 1 as tenders that I made mustard-maple sauce for dipping)
Gravy
Mashed potatoes
sweet potato-pear tzimmes (vcon - no subs needed)
Stuffing (out of brown rice bread)
pumpkin pie
cranberry sauce (from vegan brunch but without the ginger - no subs needed)
various fresh vegetables
I also attempted a new biscuit recipe - fail.


In the weeks leading up to it, we also made lots of cookies to give away and take to parties, etc:
choc chip
choc chip chai shortbread
ginger sparkles
gingerbread cutouts
chocolate cutouts
peanut apple pretzel drops
lazy samoas

Somehow I didn't manage to get one picture of anything!

How do you do the cutlets GF? I have been very tempted but haven't decided upon a method yet. Thanks in advance!

I don't update the blog as much as I'd like to or should, but here's a post on those.

If you do try them, could you go back and post on the blog how they differ from the originals? I'm sure people who have had the originals would appreciate that before they try these and I'm just curious.
