Gluten-free Dairy-free Belgium Waffles Recipe

I don’t know about you but when I smell Belgium waffles at those kiosks, I really wish I could eat gluten. Last year I vowed to find a replacement and I must say, I nailed it. I have made it two ways; with the caramelized sugar and without. Both are still delicious and my children are very appreciative of the effort I have made (read: this is not a quick recipe but worth the wait).

This New Year’s day, I thought it would be fun to make them as a treat. The crowd (both gluten-free and not) agreed it was a winner. Read through the Read More »

Jessica_Meyers_Exam_Pic

Who doesn’t love fall weather? The colors changing on the leaves, cooler weather (well, maybe we will be a couple degrees less than 100), the beginning of a new football season, the glorious Austin City Limits Music Festival, the list goes on. Some of the best tasting vegetables are also in season in the fall such as the mushrooms, oranges, lemons, cauliflower and fennel. All of the following vegetables have unique flavors and can be used in a variety of dishes. The top five are:

Mushrooms
Mushrooms are known for their immune boosting benefits in the nutrition world. They have been used for thousands of years in helping prevent cancer, boost the immune system and are also known as a great anti-aging food. There are several different types of mushrooms that are fabulous to cook with. Try grilling some beefy Portobello’s with Italian seasonings for a nice vegetarian meal this fall.

Oranges
The beloved orange; it’s one of the most popular fruits in North America. Known for the immune boosting vitamin C, oranges have many other health benefits. Oranges also have a good amount of Potassium (which helps with muscle contraction), fiber and vitamin A. Oranges are very versatile when it comes to cooking.

Gluten-Free Fish Stick Recipe

terigruss_fish-sticksCold water, wild fish is a healthy, safe option when you’re shopping for fish. If you can find it at your local grocery, buy frozen, wild caught Pacific cod for this recipe. It’s usually easy to find. I have used quite a few brands of frozen cod to make this recipe and find the best quality frozen cod is available at Costco. At least that’s the case where I shop.

Be sure to thoroughly thaw the frozen cod and blot it with paper towels until the fish is dry to the touch. This recipe is a great way to prepare fish to make a batch of delicious fish tacos.

Learn more about buying fish from our Fish and Seafood site.

INGREDIENTS
  • 2   large — approximately 7 oz white fish fillets —  preferably sustainable wild caught Pacific cod
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free sweet rice flour, more if needed
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free corn flour, more if needed (cornmeal can be substituted and will make the coating crunchier)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
  • Frying oil – preferably organic peanut oil or your favorite high heat fry oil

 

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 8 minutes
  • Chill: 0 minutes
  • Total Time: 13 minutes
  • Yield: Four 3-ounce servings

Gluten-Free Fish Tacos Recipe

Tacos! Drive thru beef and chicken, crunchy or soft may be our most familiar tacos – staples of a fast food diet. But if you’ve never had a fish taco, I content that you’ve never enjoyed the best taco of all. From South America, across Arizona and up to Alaska, fish tacos are routinely on restaurant menus, even at airports and most home cooks have their very own favorite versions.

Fish tacos, in all their regional variations are a  culinary sensation.One you shouldn’t miss out on just because you don’t frequent these locales. They are incredibly easy to make at home.

Gluten-free tortillas are easy to find in local groceries. This makes constructing a perfectly delicious gluten-free fish taco pretty darned easy in under 30 minutes. The best fish tacos I have eaten are made with Alaskan halibut or mahi-mahi. Spicy coleslaw and fusion mayonnaise (spicy, often citrus flavored mayo)  are the icing on the cake, when it comes to dressing up a fish taco.

Here’s a recipe for my version of gluten-free fish tacos, just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Add a side of homemade guacamole and pico de gallo and be prepared to enjoy. Viva tacos de Read More »
