Gluten-Free Apple Pie Bars

This week I was craving the flavors of apple pie, without having to make the whole pie from scratch!  Also, I wanted to keep filling my freezer with individually wrapped  frozen, gluten-free treats for the Fall.  Most of what I’ve baked and frozen over the past month is already almost gone.  I also love baking…

Easy Gluten-Free – Cauliflower Crust Pizza

I love the riced cauliflower trend.  Replacing carb-heavy ingredients for lighter cauliflower makes me happier and healthier.  My kids aren’t big fans, unfortunately, but it does work for my husband and I when we’re looking for a lighter meal.  Of course, you cannot expect cauliflower to taste like rice or pizza crust, but if you…

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Bread

When the weather finally gets cooler, and pumpkins appear on everyone’s porches, I am ready for all things pumpkin-flavored (except for pumpkin spice coffee drinks; for some reason I don’t like the flavoring in those).  As I’ve mentioned before, I try to limit gluten-free baked carb-type goodies during the week for health reasons.  So, I…

Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Oat Muffins

I like to have gluten-free overnight oats during the work week for breakfast, but on the weekends and days off, I usually want something a little different.  That way I don’t get too tired of my go-to breakfast.  I don’t eat a ton of gluten-free carbs because it usually makes me feel too full and…

Gluten-free Caramel Applesauce Cookies

I am still on an apple kick, everyone.  I had more apples left over from our apple picking excursion, even after making the apple crisp.  I decided it was time to make applesauce!  Then, after I made the applesauce, I wondered what to do with it all.  So, I decided to make gluten-free caramel applesauce…

Everything Apple

I love going apple picking in the Fall as a family.  And, of course, you can make so many things from those yummy apples that you picked.  Apple sauce, apple pie, apple crisp, apple strudel, apple cake.  I could think of more, but you get the picture. For my first recipe, I wanted to make…

Gluten-Free baking – Mini Blueberry Banana Muffins

Gluten-free baking can be kind of disappointing when you first venture out into the gluten-free world.  Some baked goods turn out too dry, taste a little off, or the dough is so sticky you get frustrated trying to get it to do anything.  The gluten-free baking mixes available these days make things much easier, but…

Slow Cooker Deliciousness – Chicken Thighs

When you know you have too much going on in the evening, the slow cooker is your friend.  I’ve been having good luck lately with bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, so I went that route for my most recent slow cooker meals.  The bone-in chicken thighs seem to hold up better in the slow cooker than…

The best chicken and rice EVER

When I want to cook a meal that the whole family will eat, this chicken and rice dish is what I make.  It has some of my favorite things in it, despite its simplicity.  Fresh herbs, citrus, and that perfectly cooked bite of chewy rice.  The recipe comes from an old New York Times column…

Cook once, eat twice

This two-meal recipe is an all-time favorite of mine.  It originally began as a recipe I saw in 2015 from a gluten-free magazine named Gluten-Free & More.  I’ve changed it up through the years, but it is still one of my all-time favorites.  The marinade for this pork tenderloin really makes the meal.  I have…
