Gluten Free Menu Swap – October 15

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 […]

Gluten Free Menu Monday

Natalie over at Gluten Free Mommy has started a Gluten Free Menu Swap. Every Monday, gluten free bloggers can post their menu for the week and Natalie (or whoever is hosting for the week) will do a roundup of all of the gluten free menus. If you’d like to participate next week, the optional special […]

Bread Baking Bonanza Roundup

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 […]

Gluten Free Kasha Varnishkes

Kasha Varnishkes

Kasha Varnishkes is the first of what I hope will be many Easy Gluten Free Recipes. By easy, I mean 5 ingredients or less for a main dish, and three ingredients or less for a side dish. Of course, if you scroll ahead, you’ll see that the Kasha Varnishkes has six ingredients. I’ve decided not […]

Black Bean Sausage Recipe

Black Bean Sausage Patties

Over the past week I’ve been working on simplifying our breakfasts. We’ve had a lot of smoothies, fruit salad, and toast and there will be some new recipes coming soon. This weekend I made a batch of “Gluten Free Drop Biscuits Recipe No. 2″ and these black bean sausages. You don’t have to be a […]

Gluten Free Drop Biscuits Recipe No. 2

Gluten Free Biscuits

Gluten free breakfasts are a thorn in my side. My whole-grain loving self cannot stomach gluten free cereals and John only likes eggs for about two weeks a year. So for the last couple of months we’ve been eating a lot of pancakes, biscuits, and grits, and I and my scale are ready for a […]

Spinach Meatball Sandwiches

Gluten Free Spinach Meatball Sandwich

Here’s the follow-up recipe for the spinach meatballs featured in “Spinach Meatballs over Spaghetti”. I really liked this recipe – I enjoyed having a meatball sub for the first time in way too long and I enjoyed how quickly the meal came together. We used Kate’s wrap recipe, but you could use any gluten free […]

Spinach Meatballs over Spaghetti

Gluten Free Spinach Meatballs over Spaghetti

It doesn’t seem right to call meatballs that are made with beans “meatballs”. They should be called beanballs. But that sounds like something that you might hear in a whispered conversation between fourth-grade boys. Regardless, these meatballs made with beans make a quick and satisfying supper with plenty of leftovers for meatball sandwiches later in […]

7 Great Things About a Gluten Free Diet

Onion Rings

The first few days and weeks of life on a gluten free diet are tough. You’re not sure what to eat. Lots of the food in your pantry is full of gluten. And, many of your favorite comfort foods are off-limits just when you really need some comfort. But, there is hope. Here are seven […]

Toasted Pimento Cheese Sandwich

Pimento Cheese Sandwich

Before the summer gets completely away from us and we want more than sandwiches for supper, here’s a classic Southern recipe for pimento cheese sandwiches. I had no idea until I read this NPR story that pimento cheese is just a Southern thing. I probably should have guessed though, since we often eat pimento cheese […]

August Roundup

Just in case you missed them, here are the top five posts from August. “Gluten Free Fried Brown Rice Recipe” Fried Brown Rice is one of our favorites because it’s yummy and it’s quick. We never have leftovers when I make this, so when my coworkers see that I’m eating a sandwich, they now comment […]

Gluten Free Garlic & Cheese Biscuits

Gluten Free Casein Free Garlic and Cheese Biscuits

I can’t think of any more addictive bread for supper than gluten free Garlic & Cheese biscuits. These delicious gluten free biscuits are our favorite accompaniment to a bowl of steaming hot stew. Be sure to make plenty, because these biscuits will disappear quickly. In fact, now that our children are getting older, I’d probably […]
