Must Go Soup

Everything in the fridge must go so in the pot it went.

Breakfast Sausage Cassarole

Breakfast For Christmas - Put together the night before and then bake for an hour Christmas morning

Pumpkin Soup (Vegan/Gluten Free)

Though I have to be Gluten Free I decided to try Vegan for a month and this soup turned out awesome.

GF Apple Turnovers

Awesome!!! If you are Gluten Free you absolutely have to check out Gluten Free On A Shoestring for phenominal recipes. The blog is wonderful and the cookbooks are awesome. I used the pie crust recipe and created apple turnovers that were a huge hit with everyone!!

Acorn Squash

These little buggers are the bomb!!

London Broil (Marinates for 3 days)

Because you marinate this for 3 days I have included all the ingrediants in the nutrition...actual consumption may be a little less since you don't ingest all the marinade.

Turkey Chowder

Great use for leftover turkey!

Cashew Turkey Salad

I was looking for a use of my left over turkey when I stumbled across this on the dlife diabetic recipes.

Turkey Gravy - Gluten Free

I made this gravy for my Thanksgiving dinner...Having to be Gluten Free I had to improvise. Remember potato starch can be tricky so be sure to continue stirring until ready to serve.

Glazed Carrots

This is my grandmothers recipe. No holiday would be complete without it.

Southwestern Roasted Corn on the Cob

If you have never tried the "Aw Shucks" roasted corn spice you do not know what you are missing...You can order it on line...you won't be disappointed...It is the hit of our local fairs.

Broccoli Salad (4lbs.)

Large batch for picnics

Gluten Free Pancakes

From "Live Gluten Freely"

Rice Crisped Chicken w/Garlic Dressing

I found this recipe on the Penn Maid website when I was looking for Gluten Free Sour Cream. I tweaked it a little to be gluten free.

Steak Soup

My gluten free version of Kansas City Steak Soup

Gluten Free - Corn chip Chicken

I was tired of the same old chicken so I crunched up some corn chips and use them to coat my chicken and bake them. Nice change of pace. Nice and crunchy

Gluten Free Zucchini Lasagna

I highly recommend the Classico Sauces, there are a few with gluten but most are gluten free so check the labels. UMM umm good.

Gluten free Ham and Sweet Potato Soup

Oh so good and oh so filling!!! Great comfort food in the cold months. I have found that not only are some of the Idahoan Instant Mashed Potatoes gluten free but are wonderful to use to thicken soups. Be sure you check the package as it is clearly marked "Gluten Free" on the back if it is gluten free.

Gluten Free Lasagna

I love the classico sundried alfredo sauce for all my pasta dishes...most classico sauces are gluten free so feel free to try others just double check because there are a few that contain gluten.

Garlic Pasta w/Chicken

You can find Gobs of Garlic on line at awesomespecialty.com It is wonderful!

Candied Yucca

This sauce is great with carrots too.

Chicken Thighs, Baked (Low Cholesterole) - Gluten Free

I dip mine in hot sauce first and then the breadcrumbs for a nice kick.

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce - GF

The chili peppers really give this a nice little kick. I use this sauce on pretty much everything, not just pasta.

Green Beans,Onion and Mushroom Stir Fry

Almost a daily staple in our house.

Pizza - white garlic, mushroom and onion

This is the best Gluten Free Pizza I have made so far.

Roasted Chicken - Juicey!!!1

This makes the juiciest chicken ever!

Saturday Morning Omlet

This omlet has a kick to get your morning started. Be sure to add 1 fresh chili pepper for added kick.

Ham and Sweet Potato Soup

Simmering the soup for approximately 4hrs. causes the sweet potatoes to cook in the soup which gives the broth a wonderful nature sweet taste. YUMMY!!

Chocolate chip Banana Muffins

Though these are higher in calorie than I usually like, they are great for those days where I just can't seem to get enough calories in. And oh so good.

Omlet & Breakfast Sandwich

I just through this together but I really liked it so I thought I would share. I don't toast the sandwich thin but that is surely an option I will try in the future. This is extremely filling and easy. May add some hot salsa next time for some kick.

Apple Filled Egg Rolls

The Apple mixture is from KDA1981. I have made this with all different kinds of fruit and it is scruptious! Left overs are just as good though not as crisp once refrigerated.

Egg Rolls - Home made

This is HARV47's recipe but I downsized it for those of us who have smaller families.

Lady apples are not to be confused with Pink Lady Apples. Lady apples are small, approximately 50g or 1.5oz. about the size of a half dollar.
