Gluten-Free Mini Corn Dogs Recipe

Bryan loves corn dogs and for many years I would even take a bite of one of them.  It was a texture thing to me…I always thought that the corn bread batter would be soggy and mushy and I wanted nothing to do with them.  When Bryan came to visit me in California we picked up a box for him (they weren’t gluten-free), but when he left I still had half a box…they ended up in the trash. I told him at some point I will give them a try.

A few months ago I as fortunate enough to sample some of the Applegate Farms new corn dogs – they were delicious!! To my surprise the coating was crunch and not soggy at all. Ever since Bryan has been asking for me to make some…he would really love them to be full of gluten but he’s a good sport and eats what I make.  Maybe I’ll surprise him and make some regular ones for him anyway.

Yesterday I decided to make some mini corn dogs just to see how they would Read More »

Gluten-Free Parmesan Crusted Chicken Recipe

I saw an advertisement on TV for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with this recipe. Whilst it sounded, let’s say interesting, I was intrigued and had to try it.

The first time I tried this recipe I bought some gluten free rice crumbs but I found them too crunchy with an almost sand type texture. The next time I cooked this recipe I therefore made my own breadcrumbs by blending a piece of frozen gluten free bread. It turned out really well, the chicken was very tender and it tasted awesome served with cornmeal mash (cornmeal mixed with milk and cheese) and stir fried vegetables.

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?

Gluten-Free Stuffed Turkey Burgers

While watching The Chew on ABC one day, Mario Batali’s sons gave me a fantastic idea. They had made “Pocket Burgers,” which is a hamburger with the toppings inside of the burger.

WHY HAVEN’T I EVER THOUGHT TO DO THIS BEFORE?

I made a version of their recipe that is somewhat healthier using ground turkey instead of beef, plus this nifty recipe for Tomato Chutney.

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 »

This recipe is full of nutrients that are important to anyone living gluten-free. Tuna is a great source of iodine and iron, and avacado provides fiber, potassium, vitamin E, B-vitamins, and folic acid. The tomato is full of Vitamins A and C, the onions add sulfur, and the cilantro contains Vitamin K and gives the salad it’s zesty taste. I hope you enjoy!

 

Healthy Take on Tuna Salad – Avocados!

Kim Bouldin Gluten Free Works

I am always looking for a way to make my current meal choices healthier. This not only helps my body, but it helps me to get out of a rut that I sometimes seem to fall in with foods.  I find something that I like and I like to eat it a lot.  Sometimes daily.  Tuna melts are one of those favorites.  In addition to limiting tuna to 2-3 times per week, I don’t know that I need melted cheese & mayo on a regular basis.

Avocados were on sale this week when I went grocery shopping – 5 for $5.00.  They were the big ones, too, not the tiny ones.  I wanted to incorporate avocado into my lunch, but knew I needed more protein, so the avocado tuna salad was born.
