gluten free blackened shrimp nachosLast weekend my Aunts Sue and Patti invited us over for dinner and some delicious gluten-free, crust-free cheesecake for my birthday. While we were there hanging out in the kitchen chatting with my Aunt Bryan and I started flipping through the Kraft Foods magazine “Food&Family” and Bryan kept picking out recipes he wanted me to make.  We do this often.  I’ll get a new magazine or cookbook and I’ll flip through it then give it to him to pick out what he wants to try first. So in this one, he picked out a few but the one he wanted first (aka, the next day!!) was the Cheddar-Shrimp Nachos.

They looked delicious in the picture, but I changed a few things around (go figure) to make them suitable for the both of us to enjoy but also I wasn’t a fan of some of the ingredients and wanted (more…)

Gluten-free Beef Stew Recipe

December 29th, 2011 by Amy Fothergill

gluten free beef stew recipeWhen the weather turns cool, I think comfort foods. With a busy day ahead, I knew my crock pot would come in handy. Once again, it delivered, even with a power outage toward the end of its cycle!

Here's a delicious recipe for beef stew which I have converted to gluten-free. To make it "with gluten", use regular flour instead of the white rice and potato starch. The process and seasonings are the same.

We are very lucky to have quality beef right down the road, fromMarkegard Family Grass-Fed. The test is in the taste which truly delivered. It wasn't too greasy, either, and was very tender. (more…)

gluten free warm millet salad

About one month ago, I put out my Breakfast Millet article to rave reviews. I had gotten so many emails thanking me for putting out the article and most of them requesting that I put out another one for a savory millet dish. As I am not one to disappoint may I just say…..the millet saga continues.

I seriously never get tired of talking about millet. Delicious, healthy and versatile millet is a lot like rice and can be the vehicle to transform even the most mundane dish into something exciting. To get the scoop on the health aspects and back story of millet, (more…)

Gluten-Free Round Up…Seasonal Pumpkin Recipes

gluten-free-pumpkin-recipesFall is here and that means pumpkins are starting to appear on your neighbor's door step and in grocery stores, which is the universal signal to start carving and cooking pumpkin. Why is it most of us tend to cook with pumpkin only around Halloween and Thanksgiving?  Pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A, fiber and it is low in calories, so we should find ways to work it into our diet throughout the year.

Pumpkin is very versatile to cook with, so it can be used in both sweet and savory recipes.  This Examiner did a little research for gluten-free pumpkin recipes and was amazed at all of the drool-worthy recipes we found.  Listed below are just a fraction of the gluten-free pumpkin recipes available online.

What is your favorite way to cook with pumpkin?

My Family’s Favorite Gluten Free Eats: Seafood

October 12th, 2011 by Cinde Shields

gluten free seafood
Since I am frequently asked what gluten free foods my family eats I decided to start an article series called My Family's Favorite Gluten Free Eats. When people first discover that my family is gluten free they automatically assume we have a difficult time finding things to eat. While it is true that gluten free convenience foods are not always readily available (or palatable for that matter), there are always an abundance of naturally gluten free whole foods to choose from at every market.
In my family the most commonly eaten main dishes revolve around seafood, largely in part to the fact that two of my family members are pescetarians.  Some of our friends and family seemed surprised to hear that (more…)

Grilled Swordfish and Mango Salsa Recipe

gluten-free swordfish mango recipeFish is one of my favorite things to eat, but sadly I don’t cook it enough. We eat a lot of sushi in our house because Bryan isn’t a huge fan of fish when it is cooked, except for swordfish.  He’s eaten a few cooked fish dishes that I’ve made but like I said, I don’t cook it often enough.

A few months ago we went to a local restaurant because he was craving swordfish.  He had his grilled with a bruschetta topping to it while I had a delicious piece of mahi-mahi with a mango salsa on top. He was a bit jealous of my salsa and wasn’t such a fan of the bruschetta. I promised him the next time it is on sale we would pick up a piece and I would cook it however he wished.  He asked for it to be grilled with a mango salsa, similar to the one I had on my mahi-mahi.

Lucky for him, swordfish was on sale this week! So keeping true to my promise we (more…)

I LOVE the San-J orange sauce.  I really love the San-J orange sauce when I add a hint of sriracha chili sauce to it.  My daughter does not like chicken but she devours this dish.  It is the perfect combination of sweet, spicy and salty.  And, of course, it is super easy to make. (more…)
