Paleo Banana Date Muffins

Adapted from fastpaleo

Paleo Lemon Tilapia

The original recipe adds 1/2 C of grated parmesan to the mayo topping mixture.

Vegetarian Two-Bean Enchiladas, Gluten-Free

I adapted this recipe from cooks.com to make it gluten free and vegetarian. The original recipe was for beef and bean enchiladas.

Favorite Veggie Pizza Toppings

This is my favorite veggie topping collection that I add to my gluten-free pizza crust.


Very Good (1 rating)
Gluten Free Pizza Crust

This is the best gluten free pizza crust recipe I've found! Truly crispy and crustlike. I attribute much success to Jules Flour, which you can order online, but -- if you have a favorite all purpose non-gluten flour -- go ahead and give it a whirl!

Quinoa & Black Bean Salad, gluten free, corn free

This is a recipe that will blow you away! Even people who do not appreciate this sort of thing (like myself) will love it. I made all my beans from dried, but you can use canned if you are not concerned about corn derivatives. Just be sure to rinse and drain them! The original recipe called for 1 1/2 C cooked corn instead of chick peas, but I changed it to make the recipe corn and gluten free. You can always experiment with other types of beans. The friend who gave me this recipe put pinto beans in hers.

*****NOTE***** If you want to be sure that this recipe is also corn safe, you must:

1) use a high quality red wine vinegar -- check the label or call the manufacturer!
2) cook your own beans (or use a canned product that lists beans as its sole ingredient!)
3) use real lime juice that you squeeze from the fruit!
4) use non-iodized salt!
5) use high quality spices you can trust, like McCormick single ingredient spices (in this case, cumin)


FYI: 'Qinoa' is pronounced "keen-WAH"

I'll try to get a better pic next time I make it. I ate it all before I thought of it!

Pasta Con Piselli (Pasta with Peas), Gluten Free

This is the basis for making an old family favorite from my Sicilian side. You have to add Spaghetti Sauce to complete the meal, which is a separate recipe. I have a recipe for a simple gluten- and corn-free spaghetti sauce here as well.

Bisquick Gluten Free Biscuits

I prepared these biscuits per package instructions, using margarine and skim milk.

Mushroom Gravy, Gluten Free, to accompany Comfort Meatloaf

This is the gravy recipe that goes along with my gluten free "Comfort Meatloaf." Again... this is *comfort food* NOT diet food. You can really use any combination of flour and starch, but this is my favorite combo.

Comfort Meatloaf, Gluten Free

Once again, this is not a "diet recipe", but -- personally -- I'd rather have smaller portions of good food. The original recipe came from "The Secret Life of Comfort Food," however, I did make some adjustments: I substituted ground turkey for pork, used fresh tomatoes instead of canned, and chose not to cover the whole thing with an entire package of bacon! This recipe also calls for a mushroom gravy, and I hope I can have just a little gravy in lieu of bacon. We'll see!

Shrimp Louis Dressing (South Beach; Gluten free)

I substituted Bragg Liquid Aminos for Worcestershire Sauce to accomodate Celiacs like myself.

Shrimp Louis (South Beach; salad only)

Per South Beach Diet Recipe. Dressing separate.

Sock It To Me Cake

This is an old recipe converted to gluten free. Definitely to be used as a treat! I have to be careful all day if I want 1/12th of this for dessert. Nice reward!
