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…

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 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…

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…

What’s for Dinner – Using Fresh Herbs

Like a lot of children, my kids are not big fans of casseroles or any “mixed-up” food.  So, I make a lot of dinners that consist of a protein, a veggie on the side, and some kind of carb on the side.  Coming up with different proteins that are not boring or same old-same old…

What’s for Dinner – GF Italian

Like many people, a lot of the meals I prepare each night for dinner are inspired by a recipe I’ve found online and then altered – in our case, I change the recipe to accommodate our food allergies, ingredients I have available, and general preferences.  Both of the Italian meals below started with recipes inspired…
