Do You Know the Muffin Man?

Gluten Free Banana Muffins

Monday morning I was attempting to clear a path through the dirty dishes when I came upon an extremely ripe banana. With no idea what we were having for breakfast, I took this as a sign that we should have Banana Nut Bread. What followed was a typical early morning cooking experience in the Pickett […]

Gluten Free Menu Swap – October 29th

David and I just got back from a great weekend with my parents, and I am so glad that I took the time last Sunday to prepare menus for two weeks. I knew then that we would get in late today and that I would be tired, so I decided to be nice to myself […]

Halloween Quesadillas

Gluten Free Halloween quesadillas

I first made these quesadillas a few months ago and realized that they would be perfect for Halloween. Besides being orange and black, these quesadillas are really fast to make which is perfect for a night when you’re trying to cook, trick-or-treat, and get kids to bed at a reasonable hour. I’m going to give […]

How to Prep a Butternut Squash

Peel the butternut squash

Winter squash can be a bit intimidating to the uninitiated. They suddenly appear in the supermarket when the first hint of autumn is in the air, a heaped pile of colors and shapes. A lot of people buy them for decoration. But the wise cooks buy them and cook them up into wonderful pies and […]

Gluten Free Menu Swap – October 22

David eating his carseat

We’ll be out of town this weekend, so my menu for the week is based on what is in the refrigerator that needs to be eaten. I think I did a pretty good job, since our grocery bill today was only a third of what it usually is. The meals are relatively well-balanced and I […]

Curried Sweet Potato Fries

sweet potato fries

I made up a new recipe last night! This is a pretty common occurrence, but it’s always exciting because of the suspense when you take the first bite. I knew I’d hit on a good one when I wanted to go back and make more as soon as we were done eating. Unfortunately neither John […]

Falafel on Flat Bread with Creamy Cilantro Sauce

Falafel with Creamy Cilantro Dressing

Falafel on Flat Bread. Fast Food for the Gluten Free Family. That’s what falafel is for me – a meal that seems as indulgent as stopping by McDonald’s. It’s not that it’s really fast….it just tastes like it should be. Start by making the dressing. It needs some time in the fridge for all of […]

Gluten Free Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe No. 1

For those of you who want to take a stab at making cream of mushroom soup, here is the recipe that I made in the How to Make Gluten Free Cream of Mushroom Soup tutorial. I’ve named the recipe No. 1 because I’m sure that I will come up with other versions at some point. […]

How to Make Gluten Free Cream of Mushroom Soup

Sauteed Mushrooms

So many of the favorite dishes from my childhood started with a can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup. Poppy Seed Chicken, Chicken Rollups, Chicken Spaghetti Casserole, my Grandmother’s gravy….all unattainable on a gluten free diet until you learn how to make a white sauce. For more great gluten free recipes like this one, make […]

David Sweeping Under the Bench

Sunday is here again and thanks to Gluten Free Mommy’s Gluten Free Menu Swap, I have actually planned our meals for the week. Now I’ve just got to force myself to sit down and make the shopping list (groan!). I’m not looking forward to facing Walmart after work tomorrow night! Gluten Free Mommy is hosting […]

Gluten Free Curried Carrot Soup Recipe

Gluten Free Casein Free Curried Carrot Soup

I love soup! So simple, so good, and so perfect for a quick lunch or supper. The daytime temperatures in Alabama are still in the high eighties, but the nights have a chill in the air, so I have declared soup season to be officially open. John’s parents and sister visited us this weekend and […]

If you’d like to participate next week, the optional special […]

It is getting to be late on Sunday night, and in case you’re busy blog surfing I wanted to let you know that Gluten a Go Go posted her Bread Baking Bonanza Roundup this past week. The post features bread recipes from eight different blogs, including two of my favorites Gluten Free Mommy and Gluten […]

Gluten Free Banana Nut Pancakes

Gluten Free Banana Nut Pancakes

I seem to be on a pancakes kick these days. John’s parents and sister are visiting us this weekend, so I needed a relatively easy, big breakfast for this morning. Pancakes seemed perfect and since I wanted to post something today too, I decided to make up a new recipe. Thus were banana nut pancakes […]

Zucchini Corn Sauté

Zuchinni & Corn Saute - gluten free recipe

Corn and zucchini are both great summer vegetables and they come together in this recipe to make a tasty and easy side dish. The veggies take all for two minutes to prepare and the dish can cook away on the stove while you’re working on the entree. If it gets done before the rest of […]
