Creating a gluten-free Easter dinner does not have to be hard or expensive! My advice is to stick to whole ingredients, cook from scratch and create naturally gluten-free dishes that everyone can enjoy. This will not only save you money, but it will result in much more delicious meal. It also means that you don't have to try to explain any unusual ingredients to relatives who are unfamiliar with gluten-free cooking.
Do you have a favorite family recipe that you would like to alter to make it gluten-free? Here are my tips for adapting recipes to make them gluten-free. I recommend practicing adapting your recipe prior to Easter. That will allow you to experiment and come up with a back up plan if you aren't pleased with the results.

I have found that most of our extended family and friends enjoy my homemade gluten-free cakes. However, I always serve the cake with ice-cream and have a few ice-cream toppings on hand, so that company can make an ice-cream sundae if they don't want to eat gluten-free cake.
I usually opt to add an extra side dish rather than serve bread with dinner, but if your Easter dinner will not be complete without bread, you will find a great round up of gluten-free bread recipes at Gluten Free Easily.
