Shredded Pork Taquitos

Shredded pork marinated in GF beer, chili powder, and cumin combined with onions, salsa, and cheese make these little taquitos so simply delicious you won’t believe they’re homemade. They’re also baked, not fried, which makes them all the more appealing! I first tried this recipe with shredded chicken, but marinating a pork tenderloin in GF … Continue reading

Lazy Day Chicken

This chicken has no fancy name because it is truly chicken for the lazy. And today I was among the lazy. Take 4 ingredients and 2 minutes, and about 30 minutes later you have yourself some fabulous flavorful chicken breasts. This chicken goes well with your basic side dishes (I paired it with a broccoli … Continue reading

Crockpot Taco Soup

Nothing says springtime like a pot of soup, right? No, I’m well aware this is not soup season, but sometimes you just need the comfort only a bowl of soup can give, amen? Soup can be somewhat tricky to make GF, but certainly not impossible. I usually make substitutions for flour or “cream of” soups, … Continue reading

Lean & Mean Sloppy Joe’s

I’m going to admit right now that I know that sloppy joe’s are just about the least gourmet meal ever. They’re not pretty, not usually healthy, and not really a meal about which to boast. These sloppy joe’s, however, are darn good, surprisingly low fat, and full of veggies. And they gave me another reason … Continue reading

My Easy Gluten Free Christmas

I love everything about Christmastime from the tacky blow up characters and twinkling lights in the neighborhood to the beauty of the nativity scene and the anticipation of Christ’s birth. I love the faces of children (particularly my niece and nephew) as they open presents and I love the joy that seems to exude from … Continue reading

No Crust Pizza

I love pizza night! Even GF pizza night. I’ve found several GF pizza crusts that are pretty good, even remarkably similar to non-GF crust. But occasionally I like to go back to the first GF pizza I made with a “no crust” crust. Warning: this crust looks really weird but comes out really delicious. Crust … Continue reading

Quinoa Burrito Bowl

Because I love Mexican food so much, especially burrito bowls from Salsarita’s, I decided to experiment with making my own. I used quinoa instead of rice, mainly because I had more quinoa than I had rice, and they actually turned out surprisingly well! I thought my husband might prefer rice over quinoa, but he seemed … Continue reading

Creamy Quesadillas (or Enchiladas!)

I will forever be grateful that my sister-in-law gave me the Vera Bradley cookbook: Cooking with Friends because within it holds one of those recipes I can just return to over and over again: Mama’s Creamy Chicken Enchiladas. They are SO easy and SO SO delicious! My modifications to the recipe: I use lean ground … Continue reading

Being a (GF) Vol Fan

I started going to University of Tennessee football games with my dad when I was about 5 years old. We’d leave the house about 3 hours before the game, park downtown, catch the Vol walk, and walk with the Pride of the Southland Marching Band as they marched and played Rocky Top down Volunteer Boulevard. … Continue reading

Sweet Potato & Quinoa Stir Fry

I didn’t discover quinoa until after I began eating a GF diet, and now I have to stop myself from making it too much! There are so many different ways to prepare quinoa and so far I haven’t met a quinoa dish I didn’t like! Tonight I introduced shredded sweet potatoes to quinoa, which turned … Continue reading
