Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Pot Roast2

This is a fairly straight forward “recipe,” it is really just something I throw together. Use your favorite cut of beef for pot roast. I usually use a Top Round or Bottom Round, the less tender of a cut, the better. Buy more than you think you will need, because it is even better the […]

Gingerbread

Wilton Cake Release

I love gingerbread, especially when it is warm and topped with Cool Whip!I found this recipe on Recipezaar and made a little adjustment to make it gluten-free. I think this is a recipe that can easily be made dairy-free too, at the bottom of this post I will offer some dairy-free baking substitutes. Gingerbread Cream […]

Roasted Butternut Squash with Herbes de Provence

Butternut Squash

I got this recipe from someone very near and dear to my heart. An amazing woman who was like a second mom to me growing up during those crazy teenage years and on into college, when my own family moved to New Mexico and I stayed behind in Ohio to finish my degree at Ohio […]

Taco Burgers

Taco Burger1

One of my favorite little fast food places to eat at before going gluten-free was a local place called Bob’s Burgers. Bob’s is famous around here for their taco burgers which are simply a hamburger patty in a corn taco shell (with a bit of hot green chile of course!).  I do not know why […]

Okay, so this is a work in progress but I wanted to show that it is possible, I just need to find the right noodle! Sam’s school does a neat little thing every Friday called Friday Fun. On Fridays, they make/cook a snack and at the end of the year the kids will have a […]

Homemade “Nutri-Grain” Bars

Nutrigrain3

I used to love Nutri-Grain bars, pre-celiac. I miss having something easy to grab for breakfast in the morning, that I actually like. I have tried all the GF cereal bars and while they are okay, they are not the same. I found this recipe and WOW! They taste just like I remember Nutri-Grain bars […]

Smothered Pork Chops

Smothered Pork Chops

My mom-in-law made this recipe last year and I remember thinking they were the best pork chops I have ever eaten.  She gave me a photo copy of the recipe and it looks like it came from the magazine Cook’s Country.  There are a lot of steps but it is worth the effort! Smothered Pork […]

Gluten-Free Baguettes

Gluten Free Baguettes

I found this recipe in the October/November 2008 issue of Living Without Magazine.  I made the bread for a dinner party and let everyone else taste test while I hid in the kitchen bracing myself for another gluten-free bread baking disappointment!  Imagine my surprise when the “glutenators” started saying how good the bread was, even […]
