WHAT Lodge Cast Iron Loaf Pan, 3½ cup capacity, 10¼ x 5 1/8 x 2 7/8, $20.
COOK-THE-BOOK In my new cookbook, Silvana’s Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Kitchen: Timeless Favorites Transformed, I recommend using the Lodge Cast Iron Loaf Pan for my sandwich loaf recipes. Why? After testing the bread recipes in other non–cast iron loaf pans, the crust was definitely more crusty. Huge plus in my book!

I could get away with simple swaps like shortening and rice milk for the butter and milk I once used in my recipes before he was diagnosed with dairy intolerance.READ MORE »

Together, we are on an amazing gluten-free, dairy-free journey. I’m so thankful for my kids and all of you!! With the ups and downs Isaiah and I have faced along the way, there was one constant in our lives that we could always depend on—these chocolate chip cookies. Making these gluten-free, dairy-free cookies wasn’t easy, but once I cracked the code and Isaiah took that first bite into a warm, melty cookie, his big smile said all I needed to know. I hope you and your family and friends have enjoyed them, too!READ MORE »
