Linzer Tart Macaroon Bites.
Find this recipe and Amy's Deal of the day below.
The Price Chopper Gluten Free Food Seminar that was to be held this Wednesday, February 2, 2011 has been postponed, due to the major snow storm that is expected to hit the Northeast this Tuesday and Wednesday. Projections are that this storm may be one of the largest storms in recent memory. The forecasters say it will effect up to 29 states, bringing them heavy snows, dangerous ice, winds, blizzard conditions, and in the south possible tornadoes.

The good news is that Price Chopper has rescheduled! From their website:
"Due to the inclement weather predicted, our Gluten-Free seminar scheduled Wednesday, Feb. 2 has been postponed until Wednesday, April 13, 2011 from 6 - 8 pm. If you were planning to attend and have additional questions, call our Guest services team at (518) 379-1617 or 1215." ~ http://www.pricechopper.com/ January 31, 2011 at 1:14pm. I will keep you updated as any new information becomes available.

In addition, the storm has also postponed The Glens Falls Regional Celiac Support Group February 1st meeting. This meeting will now be held March 1, 2011 at 6:30pm and will feature Dr. Anita Burock Stotts, MD. Dr. Anita will address the issues of Celiac Disease and shares her own perspective, as she also has also has Celiac Disease.

If you can, take advantage of this "snow day" to cook up a few of your favorite comfort foods to enjoy while watching the snow fall. Wishing you a safe and warm Tuesday and Wednesday!

Quick Recipes:

Magic Bar Macaroon Bites
 2010, Amy Rota-Poulin, All Rights Reserved.


1 package of Nadja’s Macaroon Cookie Dough
½ cup chocolate chips
½ cup walnuts
1 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place the Nadja’s Macaroon dough on the cookie sheet one inch apart. Using your index finger and thumb make a well in the middle of the macaroon. If the cookie splits apart simply mold it back together. Crush walnuts. (I place the walnuts in a food storage bag and crush with a rolling pin). In a bowl mix the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and half of the crushed walnuts together. Fill the well of each macaroon to the top with the magic bar mix and top with the reserved crushed walnuts. Place cookies in the oven for 10-14 minutes. Remove cookie sheet from oven and let cool. Serve warm or chilled. Enjoy these dinner party worthy cookies at home or on the go!  

*Always read the ingredient labels of each individual ingredient you are using to make sure that, that particular brand is completely gluten free. If you are unsure call the manufacturer or visit their web site, they are usually more than happy to answer your questions. *
