I love peaches. I was born in Fredericksburg, Texas…
… Smack-dab in the middle of the Texas Hill Country’s many peach orchards!
And, I think peaches are so good that I wondered what they might taste like in a salsa.
So, I decided to whip up a batch to find out.
I made the most delicious, gluten-free beef rump roast braised in my slow cooker the other day. It was lean and flavorful and it sliced easily so it was easy to serve. The juices were fragrant with the Mediterranean seasoning and the savory vegetables. And, to top it all off, the sandwiches that I will make from the leftovers will be wonderful… We’ve had this before… Many times!
When I did thicken the juices to make a gluten-free gravy the way my husband likes it, we really enjoyed it. I used sweet rice flour for thickening this time. But, arrowroot powder or potato starch flour would work too if you’re cooking paleo.
A little while before serving time, I stirred the thickener into some of the juices and then stirred that back into the crockpot. It made such an easy gravy! There was plenty of flavor in the juices, so without any thickening it would still be excellent if you are on a low-carb diet.
I discovered a new brand of rotini with good flavor and lots of nutrition.
I was interested in this new product from Tolerant when I saw that it is made solely of lentils – Non-GMO Organic Red Lentils… Nothing else.
That makes it gluten-free and also free of the top eight allergens. This low-glycemic rotini is certified gluten-free, non-GMO, organic, vegan and kosher.
Since it is made from red lentils, it has a delicate pink tint that is lovely and appetizing whether in a salad with greens and dressing or in a skillet with peppers, onion and sauce.
When I lay out a plan to seat my guests at a dinner, I want to balance the personalities at each table. I want each group to have some who are gentle and mature, some who are a little outspoken and some who maybe are energetic with a few good stories to share.
Similarly, when I’m looking for a completing touch to a gluten-free holiday menu, I can add this tangy, saucy, sweet and spicy choice that is already gluten-free — Spiced Cranberry Pear Sauce.
Here’s a moist and flavorful, easy chicken dinner that you can have on the table quickly and also serve a healthy meal to your family.
This basic gluten-free chicken recipe always satisfies my family, both the gluten-y eaters and those on a gluten-free diet. It goes with many of our favorite side dishes and is so easy to make on short notice. So, even if I start with frozen chicken breasts, preparation and cooking time is only a few minutes longer.
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 love to cook this colorful skillet full of some of my favorite veggies, all of which are ideal for a gluten-free diet.
