Eventually Instant Dairy-Free Mashed Potatoes

Eventually Instant Dairy-Free Mashed Potatoes7

I’ve been making “eventually instant” mashed potatoes for about a year now, ever since I gave up using Potato Buds.  I was never one to use boxed potatoes on a regular basis but they did come in handy when time was of the essence.  Now, I have my own convenience mashed potatoes to fall back […]

Gluten-Free Orzo Stuffed Delicata Squash

I will be sharing the recipe for the Orzo Stuffed Delicata Squash in a guest post I that will be doing on Thursday, November 11th over at The Gluten Free Homemaker, for Linda’s awesome Squash Fest series.  In order to make it though, you will first need to know how to make homemade gluten-free orzo […]

Garlicky Chicken Thighs in Red Pepper Sauce

Garlicky Chicken Thighs with Red Pepper Sauce1

I recently picked up a copy of Fine Cooking Magazine, the Weeknight Dinner issue, and I have to say that it was a very wise purchase!  Most of the recipes are either naturally gluten-free (meaning no major substitutions are required), or are easily adaptable to be GF. This recipe in particular caught my eye as […]

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Oatmeal

We do not eat gluten-free oatmeal very often, in fact it has probably been at least 3 months since the last time I made it.  I take precautions because there is still some uncertainty about them (you can read more about this on the Celiac Sprue Association website), so I try to diversify my risk […]

Gluten-Free Mozzarella Cheese Sticks and a YES! Winner

Gluten Free Cheese Sticks

Gluten-free mozzarella cheese sticks, who’da thunk it? YES! Heck, even in my former gluten-life, I could not make a cheese stick.  I could make a mean hollow tube of fried bread crumbs mind you, but somehow, the cheese always managed to escape! Has this ever happened to you?  You roll your cheese stick in bread […]

Gluten Free Pizza Rolls and Toasted Ravioli

Gluten Free Toasted Ravioli

Okay, here it is!  This is so exciting for me, I never imagined being able to enjoy toasted ravioli again.  Not only is the toasted ravioli in the above photo gluten-free, but it is also allergy-friendly too! This post is now linked to a great series that the lovely Jenn (a chemist!) over at Jenn […]

Gluten Free and Egg Free Pasta Dough

Gluten Free, Egg Free, Vegan Pasta Dough Recipe

First, I must apologize for the lack of noodles in the above picture.  I’m sure you can imagine the many uses for a plate full of fresh noodles that a 6 and 3 year old boy’s imagination could muster up (I’m still not sure how one ended up in the fishbowl).  I am also sorry […]

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Sopaipillas

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Sopapillas4

Gluten-Free Sopaipillas.  Fluffy “pillows” of fried dough, drizzled with sweet honey…oh, how I never thought this day would come!! Why is this such a big deal to me, you ask?  Well, I live in New Mexico, the birthplace of sopaipillas and they are as commonplace in New Mexican restaurants as bread baskets are in Italian […]

Shredded Beet Salad with Fresh Raspberry Vinaigrette

Shredded Beet Salad with Fresh Raspberry Vinaigrette3

I am not an intuitive cook, nor did I grow up in the kitchen with my mom (thus learning how to cook).  My mom did not enjoy being in the kitchen and only did so because, well, we had to eat something.  I really don’t know where I developed a passion for food, but from […]
