I wanted to make gluten free peanut butter cups, but I do not eat peanut butter very often and the Trader Joe’s peanut butter my husband uses is made in a factory shared with wheat. So, I opted to create walnut butter cups instead. First, I created a walnut butter recipe sweetened with agave syrup, making a great peanut butter substitute. I share both recipes with you below. Anything chocolate makes my day! How about you? Continue reading “Gluten Free Walnut Butter Cups”
While visiting with the grandkids I wanted to see them eat healthier snacks and created this recipe for gluten free granola bars. I loved them so much I will be making them for myself on a regular basis, perhaps with and without the chocolate! These are addicting! Enjoy creating your own gluten free granola bars by using this recipe as a base. Continue reading “No-Bake Gluten Free Granola Bars”
Beef stew is a family classic, but if you are gluten-free you may not know how to thicken the gravy in gluten free beef stew, like you used to do it with all-purpose flour. Take a peek at this very easy, tasty recipe that you can cook in large portions and freeze for those busy days or drop-in guests. It’s fork tender! You can use the meat for just about anything: beef stew, shredded beef tacos or enchiladas and more! One of my family’s fave! Yum Continue reading “Gluten Free Beef Stew and Brown Gravy”
This gluten free bread recipe for bread machines reminds me of an English muffin – (must be the corn starch). It is great toasted! It contains no milk, but is made with homemade raw almond milk. Give it a try if you can tolerate corn starch and egg. Continue reading “Gluten Free Bread Recipe for Bread Machines”
Creamy polenta is one of my favorite starches, and is naturally gluten free. If you can tolerate corn you will love this dish. If not, you can use the chicken and gravy recipe over rice or pasta. I enjoy my polenta creamy, but you can bake the polenta once chilled and set in the refrigerator, if you desire. Continue reading “Creamy Gluten Free Polenta, Chicken and Gravy”
Let’s face it french fries that have been deep fried are high in calories. If you’d like a french fry lower in fat and calories just bake them. I’m all for low fat french fries! I recently purchased a Nonstick French Fry Baking Pan which allows the heat to rise from the bottom through holes in the pan, allowing browning to occur on both sides. A little olive oil spray makes them taste like regular french fries.Continue reading “Baked French Fry Recipe”
Who doesn’t like au gratin potatoes, right? You can make this dish with milk, cream, half & half, a combination thereof, or a milk substitute. If you’re dairy free you can use a cheese substitute. For vegan or dairy-free use a cheese and milk substitute. This gluten free au gratin potatoes recipe is made without any flour at all. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Au Gratin Potatoes”
You can serve these ribs as they are (boneless) or you can shred the meat and use it for a pulled pork sandwich because they are fork tender! You will not need a knife for these babies! I’d like to use the term “fall off the rib tender” but they are boneless. I enjoy pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw atop a gluten-free roll and additional BBQ sauce. Since I am allergic to tomatoes I use my quick and easy homemade gluten-free chipotle sauce and Worcestershire sauce. You may consider using my homemade gluten-free barbecue sauce recipe that I created for my husband which is lower in sugar by using agave syrup and Worcestershire sauce instead of brown sugar. It’s very flavorful and has a hickory taste! Despite my tomato allergy, I couldn’t resist taste tasting the sauce while cooking! Oh, how I miss I good barbecue sauce!
