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!

Anything containing oatmeal and raisins is usually among the all-time favorites in my house, and these muffins are no exception. So, I made several batches of them and experimented a little with the sweetener. These Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Muffins with honey are what we like the best. In fact, a not-to-be-disclosed family member declared that these were absolutely delicious!
I like that the honey is a little better for us than the more traditional granulated cane sugar or brown sugar that is in many of my other muffin recipes.

This eye-appealing omelet is topped with bacon and filled with an avocado and black bean combination that’s full of different textures and flavors. It’s easy enough to cook for breakfast, but it would be ideal also for a lunch or even dinner. Most of the time when I cook an omelet for my family, they ask for cheese in it, but no one missed it in this one.
Not only is this nutrient- and protein-packed dish gluten-free, it’s also dairy-free.
The avocado and black bean filling is more like a salad around which the omelet is wrapped. It isn’t the kind of filling that cooks in the omelet. Neither is the bacon cooked in the omelet. I added it as a topper. However, if you want, you can add optional ingredients such as cheese or diced ham while cooking the eggs, although I didn’t add either of these this time.

I really appreciate a gluten-free meal that is quick and easy to prepare. Even when I’m at home, some days I like to have dinner started and simmering away on its own while I work elsewhere. In a crockpot or slow cooker, these Beef Cube Steaks cook on their own without any attention until it’s almost time to eat. Then we have a frugal meal that my husband thinks is awesome, and there’s not too much to clean up.

We rediscovered chard this summer. We had eaten it before, once every year or two, but I didn’t remember it tasted as good as it has this summer. We’re making up for lost time. I’ve served it every couple of weeks lately.
