This balsamic glaze flavors and dresses up just about any every day dish, from meat to vegetables to potatoes and rice dishes. You can make a double batch and keep it on your kitchen counter for future uses. I do not like the idea of using sugar on a dinner dish, but when I have guests that are not on a restricted diet I make an exception by making a balsamic reduction. Perhaps you will give this balsamic drizzle a try, too. Enjoy! My guests do! Continue reading “Gluten Free Balsamic Reduction – Balsamic Drizzle Recipe”
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.

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!

With only three ingredients, this gluten free appetizer recipe is so easy to make, yet your guests will think you slaved in the kitchen all day. Like most green leafy vegetables, fresh basil is loaded with Vitamin K. The small and medium sized leaves make for a nice tender appetizer. Just remember to not pick the leaves of the plants that are mid flowering, as the leaves will be bitter. The plants that are flowering should be topped off. The flower makes a nice centerpiece on the serving dish. Continue reading “Fresh Basil Leaf Appetizers with a Kick”
It was time to harvest some of my fresh basil. I already had made basil appetizers, but I needed more uses for basil. I had about a cup of left-over rice and thought, “A rice pilaf recipe!” I have made quite a few rice pilaf recipes which some I liked and others I really didn’t. This one tasted amazing! It is also very easy and fast to make. The one thing I did different this time is to not use a chicken or beef broth, which makes this a vegan rice pilaf recipe. Instead, I added additional extra virgin olive oil. You can make a meal of it by adding egg for protein, if you are not on a vegan diet. You will see photos of both versions below. This is a must try! Continue reading “Vegan Basil Rice Pilaf or Basil Fried Rice”
You will find this recipe for homemade sweet Italian sausage can be used on a homemade pizza crust or a store bought crust. Along with other toppings it makes the fixings for a great sausage pizza. I have added photos of the pizza that I made: gluten free sausage pizza without sauce. I usually add sauteed onion and green bell pepper, but I was short on time. I still enjoyed it and think you will, too! Continue reading “Quick Gluten Free Homemade Sausage Recipe for Pizza”
I had never made banana fritters, had never eaten gluten free banana fritters, and hadn’t eaten any in decades. However, I was watching a cooking show that provided me with some tips on deep frying batter which makes these gluten free banana fritters (or mango) nice and crispy, and prevents the oil from penetrating deep into the fruit. This is a light crispy batter. Very yummy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Banana Fritters and Mango Fritters”
This gluten free breaded chicken recipe is fried in just a little bit of extra virgin olive oil, making it nice and crispy using homemade gluten free seasoned bread crumbs. You can use this recipe to bread and fry vegetables, too, such as sliced zucchini, another favorite of mine! Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Recipe”
This recipe is adapted from Cuisinart. It is your typical easy vanilla ice cream recipe, but instead of using whole milk and whipping cream, I use non-fat milk and whipping cream, sometimes, raw almond milk, etc. If you use non-fat milk it will be lower in fat, not by much, but every little bit helps. Using almond milk raises the protein and makes it more nutritious, especially if you make your own homemade raw almond milk. I like topping it with fresh fruit or my homemade fresh blackberry topping. Either way, it is very yummy!
