Butternut Squash Soup in the Slow Cooker, Naturally Gluten-Free

Nourishing and warming Butternut Squash Soup in the Slow Cooker is naturally gluten-free.

Butternut squash is easy to cook several different ways, including the slow cooker, the stove top, the microwave or the oven. I’ve used each method in the past and found that they all have their advantages.

For this recipe I focused more on the set-it-and-forget aspect of a crock pot to cook the squash while I went about doing other things for a while.

All I did before putting it in the crockpot was to halve it and seed it.

Gluten-Free Roasted Chicken

Gluten-free roasted chicken with spice rub is a great way to perk up your dinner.

The aroma…the texture…and the taste are different, even if the same seasonings are used, as your favorite chicken breast recipes. Of course, chicken pieces are often easy to make and usually quick to cook, which makes them popular for a weeknight meal in a busy schedule.

I know because I often have gluten-free chicken on my menu. Everyone in the family enjoys eating it.

However, a whole chicken roasting in the oven is an entirely different dish than just chicken breasts or thighs. As I said, the aroma is different. The texture is different. And the taste is different, so…

…try a whole roasted chicken, unstuffed, with a spice rub for dinner. It takes a little longer to cook than chicken pieces, but once it is in the oven, it is easy from there on. A whole chicken can also be stuffed, but that adds to the cooking time, so I’m going with the simpler, shorter option with this recipe.

Sweet Potato Chili

Do you ever wonder what you can do with sweet potatoes?

Can you imagine sweet potato chili?

A lot of people, some of them in my own family, would rather go hungry than eat sweet potatoes.

But, due to a medical problem I was recently diagnosed with, they are getting only what I can cook and eat for myself… poor babies.

So, it’s out with the old standbys like white potatoes, rice, and GF pasta. And, in with the new like…

Braised Beef , Gluten-Free, Paleo or Low Carb

Braised round steak is a stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal that will fill up hungry teenagers and satisfy even the most die-hard meat-and-potatoes lover. It can be served “au jus” or with a thickened gravy.

My mom taught me to cook this is braised beef round steak. In fact, it’s one of my earliest childhood memories.

The recipe that my mother taught me survived conversion to gluten-free in 2000, when I was forced to go gluten-free by my celiac disease. And, it remained a family favorite ever since.

Voilà, Hybrid Frittata on Steroids!

This recipe came about one evening as I was looking for something I could do with eggs and the growing seasonal abundance of vegetables in my refrigerator. I put them all together and, voilà, hybrid frittata on steroids!

At first I was considering a neat, organized frittata, which is a seasoned mixture of beaten eggs with sautéed vegetables added, cooked slowly in a skillet without stirring and then turned as a whole at the end… similar to what you might do with an omelet.

But, what I had in mind was much more than that. I wanted a skillet heaped with scrambled eggs, which are cooked differently than frittatas. I wanted it vibrantly alive because of the scrumptious, savory sautéed veggies in it. And, I had absolutely the right idea… it was delicious!
