When looking for a new gluten-free recipe, I stumbled across this one for Goat Cheese and Arugula Ravioli on the Whole Foods website, I knew this was a must. Not only is goat cheese one of my favorite cheeses, I love ravioli (the gluten free kind of course).

When a recipe calls for soy sauce, be sure to use a gluten-free product. Same goes for hot sauce. I use Frank’s Red Hot Original sauce in my wing recipes.

Here is a recipe that was modified from the More Than Gourmet website. More Than Gourmet has a line of amazing demi-glaces that can be used to make stocks and sauces.

Do you ever put certain foods together that other people would cringe at? I used to have all kind of interesting combos when I was a kid: my Grandmas meat loaf, mashed potatoes, gravy & peas all mixed up and chili and mashed potatoes topped with cheese are just a couple that stand out in my head.

At Christmas, I always made these delicious, sweet and crisp cookies.
I’m not sure of the last time I made them but in recent years, with a gluten-free diet, I haven’t even attempted them. This year, I just couldn’t take it and decided to (more…)
