Slow Cooker Garlic Lemon Chicken Recipe

Slow Cooker Garlic Lemon Chicken Recipe

      I love using a slow cooker for dinners. Hands off all day and usually yields some very tasty food! Not to mention it makes your house smells amazing all day! One of my favorites is this Garlic Lemon Chicken recipe. The meat literally falls off the bone when it is done. This recipe is best with bone in chicken, not boneless. It take a little bit of time to fry the skin on the chicken but it…

Gluten Free Homemade Mac and Cheese

Gluten Free Homemade Mac and Cheese

My family loves Mac and Cheese. When we had to go gluten free I tried buying boxed gluten free Mac and Cheese. Disappointing to say the least. So I decided to make it at home. We love it. Creamy, cheesy, delicious goodness! We often chop and fry spam to add to the mac and cheese ( spam has a bad rap but it is just chopped ham in a can, read the ingredients you will be surprised) I always use…

Gluten Free Crispy Chicken Strips

Gluten Free Crispy Chicken Strips

  I found a recipe for chicken strips that I love to make from glutenfreemama.com. I made some changes to the instructions that worked better for me. This recipe makes chicken strips that taste like they came from KFC. Juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. I always serve them with homemade Cole slaw. We make ranch and spicy honey mustard for dipping. They are great cold the next day as well. I am able to keep their crunch by waiting till…

Gluten Free Pizza Casserole

Gluten Free Pizza Casserole

We love all things pizza. I used to make this pizza casserole recipe before we had to go gluten free. I simply changed to gluten free noodles and it was just as delicious. It is great for a week night when you want to be able to get dinner done with just a little work. I usually use Paul Newman’s Sockarooni Pasta Sauce because it is my favorite. You can use any tomato pasta sauce you like. My go to pasta…

Gluten Free Apple Crisp

Gluten Free Apple Crisp

  When we find fruit on sale we always try to use it in a recipe that week. My daughter scored Granny Smith apples that were on sale for 69 cents a pound. What to make? Apple Crisp is a family favorite. This recipe is easy and very delicious! We like using Granny Smith apples so we get the perfect balance of tart to sweet. We really liked the ratio of topping to filling as well. We have been experimenting…

Gluten Free BBQ Meatloaf

Gluten Free BBQ Meatloaf

 In my post “Buying Meat on a Budget“, I promised to share some of my recipes that use hamburger. Here is one of my favorites. BBQ Meatloaf. I never used to like meatloaf. It really has a bad reputation. I came up with a gluten free version that everyone in my family loves. I think using BBQ sauce made all the difference. I use  Nabisco rice thins crushed up, they are easy to get and not expensive. I like that…

Buying Meat on a Budget

Buying Meat on a Budget

We are a meat loving family. We have run into a few problems in our quest to be daily carnivores. First is that the price of meat has gotten so high that it is hard to have meat in the budget. Second is making sure the meat does not spoil before using it. I have always bought fresh meats and used them throughout the week. A few months ago I ran into problems with the meat spoiling sooner than the expiration date. Or due to family illness,…

Gluten Free Cheese & Berry Danish

Gluten Free Cheese & Berry Danish

I finally have a blog I am happy with! I am excited to use it to share the recipes my family and I enjoy. I have always loved to cook, bake and feed everyone. As I mentioned in my “about me” we had to go gluten free 2 years ago. A new way of eating, baking and cooking. I found that buying already prepared items was costly and more than often not very pleasant. Cooking at home has allowed us…
