My husband Al loves apple pie!
His mother made apple pie for him for as long as he can remember.
She would often make a single-crust pie with the apples cut in halves and sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon, then dotted with tiny clumps butter that would melt and flow through the whole pie while it baked in the oven. I remember her pies’ wonderful aroma, texture, and flavor from BGF (Before Gluten-Free) days. I and everyone else in the family absolutely loved her wonderful creations!
My mother-in-law, Mary, sure knew how to bake a pie that vanished and this recipe is no exception. I is a family tradition … Mary called it a Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Tart… and the secret …
I always like to have a few quick healthy meals handy like this gluten-free recipe made from kale, onion and peppers.
My husband actually likes this combination with kale, even though he never gets excited when he hears it’s on the menu. (Don’t tell him that I know he likes it J)
Having several 30 minute meals ready to go when necessary can be a lifesaver.
For more protein to go with these veggies, you can cook an egg or two in the center of the pan during the last few minutes of cooking time. These eggs are not technically poached since they aren’t in water deep enough to cover them, but they will cook nicely if you
I don’t know where you live, but in northeastern Ohio where I and most of my family live, the days are getting shorter and cooler, and the nights are sometimes downright chilly. For me, this signals perfect weather for some of my favorite, easy-to-prepare healthy food recipes.
One of my all-time favorites is a healthy, totally vegetarian lentil soup that uses carrots, celery, onion and vegetable stock. But, if you would prefer a non-vegetarian treat, just use beef or chicken stock. Either way it tastes so good on a chilly fall day. Both I and my family absolutely love it.
Fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes add so much nutrition to a gluten-free diet — however, their flavor is the main reason I eat them, and I enjoy fresh tomato recipes like this salad. One way to serve them, alone or with other vegetables, is with one of my favorites, this gluten-free salad dressing.
A perennial dinner favorite in my house is Creamed Tuna. It’s good when I’m short on time and I need to go shopping, but we’re hungry right now…so my gluten-free diet also has to satisfy everyone in the family.
The foundation of this easy dinner is a medium white sauce. I learned a long time ago that a basic white sauce or cream sauce is a kitchen standby, and it’s just as useful for a gluten-free diet as it is for gluten-y cooking. It works for a lot of my favorite 30 minute meals!
