For those who don’t speak French, I’m remembering a family friend who just turned 20 a few weeks ago and who gave my husband, Al, what I think is a great idea. A loose translation of the title might be “Florida Grapefruit, Sweetened, by Jami.” Here’s the story…
… I had to skip church Sunday because of something that was going on at home (we were watching a friend’s 2 dogs plus 1 of our own, it was raining, etc… just one of those weekends). Anyway, while at church, Al saw our friend Jami standing in the foyer with a grapefruit in her hand, eating it like an orange… or something that wasn’t sour, so, naturally, she immediately caught his attention. To put it succinctly… He was horrified!
If you know Al, you would also know that in addition to being the…
This easy banana bread recipe has been a favorite of ours for a long time. We like it every season of the year, and we especially like to have some for gluten-free snacks.
It tastes good alone, but it also is great with a flavored spread like apple butter or pumpkin cream. If I cut regular slices from the loaf like you see in the picture, they are so good to eat plain that we often don’t even think of adding something to them before the whole loaf is gone…especially if I leave it where my husband can see it.
Any time of year is my favorite time for gluten-free snacks, but in the summer I like to make things that take less time in the kitchen. These little bars of oatmeal and molasses are so easy to stir together that I don’t even need the mixer. I stir them together, pop the pan in the oven, set the timer and come back later.
These bars are sweet, so you might like them with less sugar than what I’ve called for. When I follow this recipe, my husband will eat them, too. That’s great because then I don’t need to make a separate pan of treats for him.
I baked this gluten-free zucchini bread with some of the squash that is so plentiful in local gardens right now. The moist and flavorful quick bread has a good texture and just enough sweetness to make a great gluten-free snack.
It tasted good alone. It also tasted good with apple butter, and also with cream cheese…also with strawberry jam, elderberry jelly, peanut butter and regular butter. The sandwiches were easy to make and kid-friendly!
Vibrant, zesty salsa adds excitement to a gluten-free main dish, side or snack. Having an easy basic recipe for it is a must in my family. Here is one of…
