Spice scents filled the kitchen along with the more subtle brown sugar and pecan aromas…my mom was baking Oatmeal Cookies. These still bring back memories of some of my favorite things about her kitchen, especially Christmas baking.
The chocolate flavor is rich, without being overpowered by odd tastes that sometimes go with gluten-free flours. The texture was dense but still a little crumbly….
A summer staple around many campfires and grills, a gooey, rich chocolate somemore for dessert is also easy in the kitchen. Find some gluten-free graham crackers, some marshmallows and your favorite chocolate — I like semisweet, but milk chocolate or whatever else you might prefer will work, too.
The first time I made these, Al wasn’t too sure if he liked them or if they were just “okay.” Then I made him a pan of his own (with gluteny flour), and he asked me to make some more of these! The pureed lentils add a better flavor to the fudgy chocolate.
This batch is softer and chewier than usual since I used corn oil instead of margarine — Al says he likes them better that way. My friend Mary says she likes to keep some oatmeal cookie dough on hand, so that they don’t eat all 5 dozen in 3 days. I like her idea — quite often I’ll do that, too, since the only snack better than an oatmeal cookie is…a WARM oatmeal cookie! My earliest baking memories are of my Oma’s oatmeal cookie recipe. (Isn’t your grandmother’s cookie a great way to start baking?) When I went on a celiac diet, I couldn’t eat those anymore, but the oat flour makes a passable substitute. Then Al asked me to [...]
Gluten-free and Gluten-y family members alike will all absolutely love this beef round steak with vegetables from the crock pot recipe.
It's a classic stick-to-the-ribs family-style meal that is every bit as good as your favorite stew... And, you can thicken the delicious broth that you'll get after simmering for several hours in your slow cooker into a silky-smooth gravy that will make the meal even better.
This meal only takes 20-minutes or so to put together and then can simmer for as long as necessary... Whatever that means in your world. It's a low preparation-time recipe that you and your whole family are sure to enjoy.
This week's Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan is high-lighted by a quick-and-easy 30 minute meal featuring Roasted Chicken Breasts garnished with veggies. I've used some of my favorite cut vegetables in Day 5's treat. However, you can modify the recipe to use yours!
But, no matter what you top it with... Steaming hot from the oven, it's sure to look good and taste delicious too!
... I usually use my own preference for the proportion of pasta to vegetables in this dish. Try it and decide what works best for you. I often cook more veggies than the recipe calls for. And, I'll keep them in a separate dish so that I can add more of them to my plate if the mood strikes me. Depending on how many carbs I've already had that day, I may skip the pasta entirely and just have my sauce with the veggies... I really like just the veggies in sauce sometimes. This is one of my family's favorite gluten-free ground beef recipes. The gluten-free sauce combined with the ground beef seasoned perfectly to your taste can be a marvelous addition to your meal time.
… As I looked around the Internet recently I noticed articles and comments about individuals becoming ill because they used condiments which were not gluten-free. I understand from first-hand experience how very easy it is to accidentally contaminate your food with condiments such as Worcestershire sauce, bouillon cubes and things like this. I’ve done it myself... I don't know how many times.
This week's Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan is highlighted by the fact that it's got 2 Slow Cooker Meals and 5 quick, 30 Minute Meals. The meals are all quick or "no-brainer" easy! I guess it reflects the fact that I've been out of the office for several weeks on a temporary assignment. So I'm "knockin' 'em out" fast and furious today.
