Many spice blends like garam masala (Indian spice) and allspice, often contain gluten. If you’re not sure about the gluten status of a spice blend, make your own. Garam masala is best when you make it using roasted, whole spices which have been ground, but the easiest and fastest way is to use prepared ground spices. That’s what I use. Use your homemade gluten free garam masala in recipes like my Gluten Free Chicken Korma or Gluten Free Beef Korma Recipe. Continue reading Gluten Free Garam Masala Recipe

What a difference these two changes made! It’s addictive!

This baked chicken is similar to stuffed caprese chicken without the tomatoes. Instead, I use sauteed bell pepper and onion, which gives it an amazing and slightly sweet flavor. You can stuff the chicken with mozzarella and peppers as I did or anything you enjoy from sautéed vegetables to cheese with or without ham, prosciutto, or bacon. I didn’t use any meat in the stuffing and my husband went wild over this dish!
