Gluten-free Pumpkin Muffins Made with Oatmeal

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins Made with Oatmeal – Delicious!

Gluten-free pumpkin muffins are a good way to start off the day. Pumpkin muffins are a type of gluten-free bread and go great with many, many foods… especially breakfast “fixin’s.”

And, even better, this recipe is easy to make. They can be ready in about 30 minutes and will reward you and your family with their delicate aroma and delicious pumpkin-y flavor.

Unfortunately, they won’t last very long. So, be sure to make plenty… I turned my husband loose on the muffins you see in the picture above and they all vanished in about 15 minutes… And, he’s not a magician!

He says that they are fabulous with a pat of rich, creamery butter melted into each bite.

Gluten-Free Baked Polenta

Gluten-Free Baked Polenta with Pasta Sauce and Mozzarella Cheese

Baked polenta is an easy gluten-free recipe that works great as a side with dinner. Plus, I really enjoy it for lunch… Especially since it’s so quick & easy to prepare.

If you have ever had grits – especially Southern-style grits with butter, syrup and bacon – you might recognize a similarity to traditional Italian polenta.

They are both made from ground, dried corn. In fact, some would say they are interchangeable, although polenta is usually a coarser grind than grits and the type of corn used is “flint” corn, making a firmer texture after cooking. If you can’t find polenta where you shop, you can substitute grits in a pinch. Some stores also have cooked polenta in a tube in the dairy or meat case.

Baked polenta fits into a 30 minute meal easily, even if I want to add some of the optional toppings like sautéed onion or mushrooms.

Gluten-Free Diet Menu Plan For the Week of January 13, 2013

This week’s gluten-free diet menu plan has favorites for everybody.

It begins with a warming pot of Multibean Soup, served alongside fish sticks and salad. Then, the next day I’ve included a bit of Tex-Mex flair with some Avocado, Tomato and Cheese-Topped Chicken. My husband Al really likes this one.

For Day 3 I put together a slow cooker meal of Beef Pot Roast. It’s gluten-free and can also be low-carb or paleo if you want it to be that way. Be sure to save some of the sliced beef for Roast Beef Sandwiches for tomorrow’s dinner (“Wednesday Night Blue Plate Special” at the Home Diner :-) ).
