Gluten-Free Tater Tot Casserole

January 3rd, 2013 by Laura Hanley


Tater Tot Casserole. With a name like that, how can you go wrong!?!

While growing up, one household favorite was the tater tot casserole my mom would make. She loved it because, as a busy single-mom,  she could make it ahead of time and then pop it in the oven when the time came. Us kids loved it for the most obvious reason: It had tater tots in it!

We have easily modified this casserole to be gluten-free, and can once again enjoy the comfort it brings on a cold, wintry day. (more…)


Trying Out An Old Favorite with Pete & Gerry’s Eggs

November 9th, 2012 by CC Bonaduce

When I was little I loved American Girl dolls. It seems like yesterday that I was picking out my first doll, after my “Twin Doll” sadly lost her head four times. I can remember my mom suggesting I get Samantha because she was the one that looked closest to me. However, the doll I chose was Molly because she had glasses just like me. I loved that doll, I read all the books which went along with her; even dressed up as Molly for Halloween one year.

One year we threw a birthday party for Molly. My mom being the creative person she is went all out! We made homemade headbands; an idea from one of my American Girl Magazines and ate dishes of food that Molly would have enjoy during the era in which she lived. It’s one of those childhood memories I won’t forget.

Over break I received eggs from Pete & Gerry’s Organic Eggs; a company I met at this year’s summer Food Fete. My brother laughed when he asked what was in the package and I excitedly responded (more…)

Seasoned Gluten-Free Breakfast Hash Browns

October 18th, 2012 by Geanna

 

geanna gluten free works

Seasoned gluten-free hash brownsI grew up with small weekday breakfasts and large weekend breakfasts. We ate cereal during the week but on Saturday mornings we’d trek (usually by car, although it was extremely close to our house) to a very small, very local diner called Mama’s. Run by an eastern-European family, the diner made such extraordinary breakfasts that we became fast and regular patrons. Although the restaurant is long gone now, and the breakfasts are nothing more than a mere memory to me, I still fantasize about the humongous servings that lasted me much more than (more…)

Gluten Free Thai Rice Paper Vegetable Roll Recipe

I love rice paper rolls and it’s disappointing how many thai places don’t have them on the menu opting for gluteneous deep fried spring rolls instead. However they are very simple and cheap to make so I often make them at home as a dinner entree or snack.

You can buy the rice paper sheets from most supermarkets and then you just need to decide what you want to fill them with. I usually make vegetarian versions using coriander, carrot and cucumber but go ahead and experiment with chicken, beef and different types of vegetables. You can also add rice noodles.

If your rice paper rolls always seem to fall apart when you dip them in (more…)
