Gluten Free Cranberry Coffee Cake Recipe from Namaste Mix

I was sent a couple of items from Namaste Foods to sample. The one I recently tried was their Biscuits, Pie Crust and More! Flour Blend which also makes dumplings, shortcake and coffee cake. The package had several recipes including an orange cranberry coffee cake recipe. Unfortunately, I am allergic to citrus and had to substitute the orange juice for applesauce and added more cinnamon (yum!) – very moist! I have included my recipe along with the recommended ingredients and instructions (see “versus…”). I recommend this mix, as it is close to Bisquick and I bet will make some very good recipes besides this one. I can’t wait to try the pie crust! The coffee cake rose beautifully, even with all of that heavy applesauce! This recipe is gluten-free, casein free, (egg-free if you use an egg substitute), and (nut free, if you skip the walnuts on top).

Parmesan Beef Burgers Recipe – Gluten Free – Delicious!

Looking for a great beef burgers recipe? I have been eating dull hamburgers with or without cheese all of my life, 51 years, and thought it was time for a change! Okay, so I haven’t been eating them for a full 51 years, but that’s close enough. I’m not Celiac, therefore, cooking with gluten for my husband is not a problem. I was making him a gluten pizza tonight as an extra birthday present and did not want to really cook a big meal for myself. I knew I wanted to add some steak sauce or something. I decided to make a mini meatloaf with more of a steak sauce taste. I wanted something filing since I wasn’t going to be having bread or hamburger bun. I decided instead of adding gluten free oats, as some meatloaf recipes contain, but to hide the oatmeal by grinding into a flour first. I added just about anything I really liked with beef. Voila! – the best beef burgers recipe I have ever eaten! I ended up topping it off with a guacamole sauce. Yum! See both recipes below.

Chicken Tostada Over Rice Recipe

A while back I had made some chicken, tostada style. My husband eats gluten and he had some tortillas, but I was out my homemade gluten free tortillas. I happened to have some left over rice in the frig and voila! – an easy gluten free dinner recipe. I wasn’t happy with the photo and never posted it, but thought it is best to share and you can make your dish look more attractive. I like to make this recipe nice and saucy, adding much more chicken broth than a regular tostada. You make your own broth when cooking the chicken, therefore, you save money, too! Continue reading Chicken Tostada Over Rice Recipe

Like most green leafy vegetables, fresh basil is loaded with Vitamin K. The small and medium sized leaves make for a nice tender appetizer.
