Check out recipes here or try This Gluten Free Baguettes Recipe or Gluten Free Sourdough Bread Recipe. Continue reading “Crusty Sugar-Free Dairy-Free Gluten-Free Bread Roll”
I wanted to make a walnut paste to be used on pasta or when chilled even on crackers or celery, but the recipes I found contain raw garlic. I really wanted to make a walnut paste with roasted garlic, therefore, I began a new experiment. I thought about using pine nuts, but I wanted to create something yummy for everyone that was affordable. You make this as a paste or as a walnut pesto sauce.

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 form 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. UPDATE: I have successfully made these using a regular baking sheet. You may use russet potatoes, sweet potatoes, or golden or red potatoes. Guilt free French fries! What’s not to enjoy? Continue reading “Low Fat Healthy Baked French Fries”
I became tired of the same old zucchini recipes so I started experimenting again. This recipe takes few ingredients, usually found right in your kitchen. You marinate them and cook in a baking sheet (less clean up). Prep time and cook time is short. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Broiled Marinated Zucchini”
I am half Italian and love my cream puffs, especially filled with custard. I grew up eating them from the historic Italian bakery in San Francisco, Victoria Pastry. Now I can have gluten free cream puffs and so can you. They are so delicious! Continue reading “Gluten Free Cream Puffs”
This recipe is dairy free. I had a nice ripe mango waiting for me, but I was in the mood something more creamy. The raw almond milk ice cream that I made with avocado came out wonderful, but raw almond milk ice cream with mango is very refreshing and so healthy, too! I wasn’t sure to call it dairy free sherbet or ice cream, but it tastes great! Next time I am definitely skipping the sweetener and adding bananas! Continue reading “Dairy Free Sherbet – Ice Cream – Mango and Almond”
I had quite a bit of leftover white rice and happened to see a restaurant featured on television that shared a portion of their ingredients for rice pudding except for one secret ingredient. And it is naturally gluten free. It looked as if it contained warm maple syrup; and the host of show said it tasted like french toast. I just had to try to make it. The original recipe did not use vanilla bean but I had to add some, as vanilla beans give it a wonderful flavor! I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed creating, and consuming it.

Summer time is almost here which calls for the need of multiple salad recipes. To make a successful chopped salad you want to use lots of color and make sure you use dry lettuce. You can use whatever you have on hand. I have listed some very colorful options below. I also included a very easy chipotle salad dressing (tex mex salad dressing, if you wish) to go with this chopped salad recipe, but of course you can use your favorite salad dressing. Enjoy! Continue reading “The Secret to a Good Salad – Plus Chipotle Tex Mex Dressing”
I was just shocked to find that the gluten free tortilla mix I had purchased online was overloaded with sodium. I decided to create my own gluten free tortilla recipe. Making fajita sized tortilla from the mix had 640 mg of sodium. Are they trying to kill us? The low carb tortillas I used to purchase had over 300 mg and I found that too high. Using sea salt makes it healthier, but for myself, sea salt still causes me to retain water. The mix I had purchased also contained lard. I know that many people advocate cooking with natural animal fat, but I prefer to watch my fat intake as well as calories. I was determined to create a recipe similar to the mixture I had purchased and do so successfully today! Many people online seem to have a problem finding a decent recipe, therefore, I am pretty darn proud of myself, as this was my first attempt and it was an experimental recipe.
I NO LONGER USE THIS RECIPE. TRY ONE OF MY NEWER RECIPES IN THE GLUTEN FREE TORTILLA RECIPES CATEGORY.
I have been planning to make gluten free potato pancakes for some time, now, and finally got around to making them. Gee, it’s been a decade or more since I have had them. Ahhh! – what a delight! I make them with fresh left-over potato pancakes, not instant potatoes. This recipe is gluten free and without any type of flour. I show the how-to by text and photo display. This recipe covers making homemade mashed potatoes and potato pancakes, plain, and with a variety of fillings. Either way they are scrumptious!
