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. Read More »

Today, when I went to the grocery store, I was inspired by the produce. I didn’t really have a plan; I just put it all in my cart. I also grabbed a package of boneless, skinless chicken thighs as my kids love this as a protein.
I think that it’s great to have a stack of recipes on hand but at the same time, so much of it is just cooking. Can you guess all of cooking methods I used in the photo? They are shredding, marinating and grilling, steaming and roasting. Each item didn’t take very long so if you can multi-task, it’s easy to put together a dinner like this. Here’s how I did it:
BBQ Chicken- I placed the chicken breasts in a glass pan and added bbq sauce. The marinating time is quick so you can leave the chicken out for 20 minutes while you prepare the other dishes. My favorite is Read More »

This is the other pizza that my husband made for our dinner tonight. This is my personal favorite. There is something very comforting about the italian sausage and roasted veggies. The other pizza he made was a Spinach, Pancetta and Goat Cheese Pizza. We use Udi’s frozen GF pizza crust, but any GF crust will work.
3 mild Italian sausage links, casing removed
1 1/2 cups fire roasted peppers and onions (I use the frozen Trader Joe’s version)* Read More »
I asked a few celiac friends if they had noticed a change in Udi’s bread. They all answered with the same statement; “Yes, it’s full of holes!” I emailed Udi’s a few times, but never heard back from them. So I did what all good little bloggers do and posted a picture on my blog.
I have no idea how many people have complained to Udi’s about their hollow bread, or if they are taking measures to correct it. They certainly have not asked for my two cents (imagine that!). But as a celiac with a nutrition and food science background I know that if you add too much yeast or baking powder in relationship to the flour; or you Read More »
It has been a little over a year since General Mills launched gluten-free Hamburger Helper and already it has been changed.
Hamburger Helper will no longer be gluten free because it is going to be processed in a different manufacturing facility that cannot be guaranteed to be free from cross contamination. The newly processed Hamburger Helper will not have the ‘gluten free’ label, but will be labeled “may contain wheat”.I never tried any of the varieties of gluten-free Hamburger Helper because the flavor options weren’t all that interesting to me, they were loaded with salt and it is frankly Read More »
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 »

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 »
