I’m back with another awesome Gluten Free Recipe today! If there is one thing I love it’s any kind of muffin! I love sweet muffins, savory muffins, any kind of muffins! They are easy to make and are great for a grab and go breakfast or snack! Some people may think that just because you are Gluten Free that that means you can no longer enjoy muffins, and that is simply not true! With a simple change in some ingredients you can still have these tasty treats whenever you would like! Today I’m going to show you how to make one of my favorite type of muffins, my Gluten Free Lemon Poppyseed Muffins!
Eggs are an inexpensive staple. In many grocery stores, you can get a dozen for less than $2. Fresh eggs usually sell for between $2 and $3 per dozen depending on the size and breed of the laying hen. If you are lucky enough to know a farmer with chickens, you can enjoy flavorful and healthy eggs gathered at the peak of freshness. These farm fresh eggs are usually light to medium brown in color and have larger egg whites and yolks than white, grocery store eggs. Farm eggs are richer and tastier because they are fresh, and the chickens’ diet is more natural. If you can get your hands on farm fresh eggs, give them a try and you’ll discover a delicious, all-natural “brain food” that is a healthy source of protein.
If you’re on a gluten free diet one of the ingredient that you should check out is Quinoa. It is high in protein and fiber and very versatile, you can use it in a lot of recipes and it tastes great with a nice crunch. This Baked Quinoa Patties Recipe is one of my favorites and even kids will love it.
Picnics and covered dish suppers are a fun part of early fall. When families and friends gather and share foods they’ve brought, I almost always enjoy one extra-special something. Maybe it’s a creamy, cheesy mac ‘n’ cheese or a perfectly seasoned vegetable or even an exotic fruit salad. You almost never attend a cookout without a pasta salad. This simple side dish has become very much a staple at such gatherings. There are many different kinds of pasta salad including creamy and vinaigrette (Like Asparagus Pasta Salad). My aunt Sandy makes a Mediterranean pasta salad that is perfect to take to outdoor events, since it is not mayonnaise-based. I also enjoy using the freshest vegetables that I can find at my local farmer’s market.Continue reading
Often buying a whole chicken at the grocery store is great way to save some money. However, buying a whole chicken can be a bit intimidating if you have never cooked one. If you want to buy a whole chicken at the grocery store but your not sure what to do with it we have the perfect solution. Make a slow cooker rotisserie chicken!
I ventured into canning my own spaghetti sauce this summer. I wanted to use what I grew to create the perfect sauce. This is how to Make Marinara Sauce With Garden Tomatoes. My recipe is similar to Connie’s- although I cook mine in the crock-pot all day. My crock-pot yields 6 pints for canning. It is very easy to let it cook all day and then process in a water bath! Thanks to Connie for this recipe. Check out Cook with Connie for more fantastic recipes!
Each summer when gardens yield an abundance of tomatoes, I make marinara. Last year, my friend, Sarah, encouraged me to enter my marinara in the county fair and it won first prize! This classic Italian tomato sauce is truly easy to make, and when it’s made with fresh tomatoes and basil, it’s hard to beat. In the winter, you can make marinara with canned tomatoes, but it is best with garden fresh tomatoes that have been blanched. Try my marinara the next time you have a batch of tomatoes. It is delicious on pasta, of course, but try it over steamed zucchini or spaghetti squash. Marinara also makes a great topper for baked potatoes or grilled chicken.
