A big thank you to Aida Mollenkamp (see my interview with her here) for this recipe from her recent book “Keys to the Kitchen.” I have made this twice, both times with much success. The children (now almost 9 and 7) loved it as well. I put my family chef spin on it so it’s not quite as spicy. I hope you’ll try it, even if you think your kids are picky eaters. It’s worth a shot!

Gluten-Free Pesto Fettuccine with Chicken
Since I received the world’s greatest fettuccine noodles in the mail (thank you Cappello’s Gluten-Free), I was determined to make nothing but the classiest sauce to go with them. But, the problem is…I’m not a classy cook. I’m a “that’s too many steps, I’ll probably mess something up” type of cook, which is why this recipe for Pesto Cream Sauce screamed, “I’M YOUR PERFECT MATCH!” during the search my mother and I conducted.
One Dish, Three Meals – Mexican Style!
I have never viewed being on a gluten and dairy-free diet as restrictive. Of course there are many foods I can’t have, but there are many more foods I can enjoy. However, more so than I did before I went gluten-free I get in phases where I feel like I’m eating the same foods. This is especially true since I have had to restrict my diet even more due to acid reflux.
When my parents came up last time my mom brought me two 1lb containers of ground turkey. I had made a meatloaf with one and had been enjoying the frozen turkey burgers my mom had made, but with my last Read More »

Gluten Free Blackened Shrimp Nachos
Last 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 Read More »
Gluten-Free Tuna Casserole – Economical and Wildly Popular at My House
Was tuna casserole one of your favorite childhood meals? I just learned that my husband is wild for this classic comfort food. You know the one — made with lots and lots of macaroni, canned tuna, mushroom soup, cheese, onions, peas and whatever else your mom might have had in the fridge that she wanted to get rid of. The classic tuna casserole was topped with crispy bread or cracker crumbs and no one ever seemed to complain about having to eat it. Yeah, that casserole.
I’ve been wanting to try a new gluten-free pasta I recently found Read More »
Gluten-free Burrito Casserole Recipe; Leave the Tortilla Behind
One thing that can be missed on a gluten free (gf) diet is a burrito.
One idea is to leave the tortilla out of the picture entirely and just focus on the filling.
This “deconstructed” burrito casserole is healthy, family-friendly, and versatile. Once the rice and meat are cooked, it only takes minutes to assemble and about 20 minutes to heat. Dinner is served! Read More »
