Gluten Free Dairy Free Mexican Cornbread

Posted on

Growing up, my mom used to occasionally make Mexican cornbread with a box of Jiffy mix and–frankly I can’t remember what else beyond a pound of hamburger and some cheese.  Presumably there were spices in there…  Anyway, I had a hankering the other day, so I decided to pull together this lighter, gluten and dairy […]

Crock Pot Teriyaki Meatballs

Posted on

It’s no secret that I’ve been on the hunt for easy weeknight dinners.  Stuff that can be fixed in 30 minutes or less or crock pot stuff I can toss on when I come home at lunch.  I’ve got a zillion crock pot recipes for winter, but summer…I’m a little short on options.  Since I’ve […]

Gluten Free Dairy Free Beef Stroganoff

Posted on

Stroganoff is something I haven’t tried since making the switch to dairy free living.  I hadn’t ever found a gluten free egg noodle I liked anyway.  Until now.  I recently read a taste test in Cooks Country about gluten free noodles and the winner was Jovial, which I’d never heard of.  I filed that little tidbit […]

Gluten Free Pretzel Crusted Chicken Breasts

Posted on

I’ve been wanting to make Gluten Free Pretzel Crusted Chicken ever since I first tasted Glutino’s gluten free pretzels.  They have a deliciously Ritz-like flavor that I still have aspirations of using to top my poppyseed chicken (which I haven’t figured out how to convert to gluten free AND dairy free yet), but either way, I […]

Spicy Mango Pork Tenderloin

Posted on

Kroger’s had pork loins on special the last couple of weeks and I stocked up.  I love cutting them up for pork chops, kebabs, or stir fries, but nothing beats a good slow cooked pork tenderloin.  Melt in your mouth tender and full of flavor.  I decided to whip out some tropical flavor and heat […]

Cast Iron Skillet Potatoes and Ham

Posted on

This recipe for cast iron skillet potatoes is an adaptation of another one of those that I’ve seen flying around Facebook (uncredited, as usual).  The base recipe is specifically for potatoes and is loaded with cheese (a no no in our house, obviously).  But I liked the idea of doing these potato slices in the […]

Gluten Free Chicken Croquettes

Posted on

This recipe is an adaptation for Alton Brown’s recipe for Tuna Croquettes.  I wound up trying it with canned chicken and it has become, essentially, the grown up chicken nugget of our household.  It’s a great, tasty solution to “what’s for dinner?” when you didn’t have a chance to thaw anything. Ingredients: 1 12 oz. can […]

Tequila Lime Chicken Thighs

Posted on

Chicken thighs get a bad rap.  In our chicken breast obsessed world, folks seem to think that chicken thighs are horribly fatty and bad for you.  Not so.  If you remove the skin and fat, they aren’t bad at all, particularly compared to the ginormous multi-serving chicken breasts that seem to show up in our […]

Maple Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

Posted on

I’ve had a bottle of REAL maple syrup hanging out in my cabinet for at least a couple of months.  I’ve been saving it, like gold (since it costs so much!), for something really special.  Given that maple and breakfast sausage goes SO well together, I thought that a maple and sausage stuffing would be […]

Ranch Pork Chops

Posted on

We are HUGE fans of The Pioneer Woman’s Ranch Style Chicken.  I’ve been saying for ages that it would make a marvelous base for pork as well, so I finally got around to giving it a try with a few change.  OMG, SO GOOD.  I wished I’d doubled the recipe.  Serves 2. Ingredients: 1/8 cup […]
