Gluten-Free Chocolate Blueberry Muffins

I stumbled upon something very delicious this week, entirely by accident.  I had leftover blueberries to use up, and didn’t really want to make regular blueberry muffins.  I also didn’t feel like any type of cobbler or bar.  I did, however, feel like CHOCOLATE.  I started thinking about the blueberry flavor combined with the chocolate…

Gluten-Free Coconut Banana Muffins

Now that the weather is turning ever so slightly warmer, I’ve been thinking about summer. It’s still a long way off, but I can still dream about it.  Tropical flavors scream summer-time and vacations to me.  Looking around in my pantry, I realized I had a big bag of coconut flakes, just begging to be…

Light Cauliflower Risotto – Naturally Gluten-Free

Risotto with parmesan cheese is one of my favorite meals.  But, rice is full of carbs and can get really heavy, and conversely, you feel really hungry not long after you eat it.  I have always felt like you have to fill your plate with risotto if you want to stave off hunger later, which…

Light Lemony Gluten-Free Muffins

When you’re in the mood for Spring, and it’s only 30 degrees out, what do you do?  You bake something Spring-inspired!  I love the flavor of lemon and the light citrus taste, especially when I’m tired of heavier flavors like chocolate.  Sometimes, you want something with more flavor than vanilla, too.  Lemon is a nice…

Healthy Gluten-Free Strawberry Banana “Cake”

I had a strawberry yogurt incident the other day.  When I thought my strawberry-obsessed daughter would like strawberry yogurt, I was very, very wrong.  This left me with a half dozen containers of strawberry yogurt to use up.  Having finished the holidays, I am “over” all the flavors of pumpkin, gingerbread, and even apple.  I…

Fast Gluten-Free Jam Bars

This recipe is FAST, everyone.  Fast also means easy clean-up, in my book.  I don’t like super sugary foods, and these jam bars fit the bill.  I used blueberry jam because it’s my favorite, but of course you could use blackberry, raspberry, strawberry, apricot, or any other jam flavor you can think of.  The blueberry…

All things Gingerbread!

I’ve been getting into the holiday spirit recently, and over the weekend I decided to have a  gluten-free gingerbread day at my house.  I made a Gluten-Free Gingerbread Loaf, a spicy and deliciously moist gingerbread, and then figured that since I had everything out already, I might as well make gingerbread men with my kids,…

Super Fast Gluten-Free Pasta Dinners

This post is about super-fast dinners that I like to eat, and as a bonus, that are so easy to make that I don’t even measure each ingredient!  So I could also have called this post the “no-measure meals” post.  Sometimes, you don’t want to bother with a recipe in the evenings.  You need something…

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice Bowls

I love the burrito bowls at Chipotle – they are pretty allergy-friendly there, and the food is tasty too.  However, I can make pretty much the same thing at home, plus make it a little healthier.  Mostly because I don’t have access to all that fresh guacamole!  Still, when you want something warm and filling…

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffins

Every Fall and Thanksgiving, I make sure to buy multiple cans of pumpkin puree.  I love pumpkin, and it’s definitely a “Fall Flavor.”  However, after I baked my yummy pumpkin bread (and ate it all) and made a delicious pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, I found myself with an extra can of pumpkin puree. I wasn’t…
