Buttermilk gf pancakes with berry compote

This is a very yummy weekend delight to have. It is different from anything I have made regarding Gluten free . It was very tasty and filling for one large pancake .I topped with Ricotta quarter of cup to give some protein. When pancakes just come off the pan rub with butter on both sides , top ricotta or any cheese you like , cinnamon,nutmeg sprinkle, berry compote and than sprinkle with the powdered sugar . This was the best weekend bkft and healthy Gluten free!

pecan cinnamon carrot muffins

I changed this recipe from Dr. Shepherd's Low FODMAP book. I did not have tapioca flour so I subs. with cassava flour and no cornstarch so used potatoe starch. I also wanted less sugar so instead of 1 cup of brown sugar. I used a quarter of each brown sugar and coconut sugar. I wanted more than 2 small carrots so I opted for 1 cup of shredded carrots. I don't use veg oil anymore so Avocado, EVOO or any other will do. Every thing else is the same with the recipe. The muffins took more time than 12-16 mins so I left in for about 30 to 45 but checked with skewer every 15 minutes. They came out perfect looking, delicious with butter. A very fast breakfast with some milk of choice.

beef veggie meatloaf muffiins

This is very tasty..but I modified the recipe from cooking club mag. It needed better spices and more sauce to make it moister... so I added more ketchup into the recipe they only provided 4 tbsp for top of each muffin.
To start shred carrot and zucchini and chop chives, only green part. I am making this low Fodmap. Set aside all measuring tools and ingredients to make easier. Only use 6 tbsp of Ketchup in the recipe and other for the top of muffins before you cook. The recipe only called for thyme which I don't like so I added others and a little bit of it. You can adjust to your likes. ENJOY!

cranberry shortbread bars

O.k. so this is A version of V. Bertinellis recipe on foodnetwork. I made it less sweet due to my diabetes and count the fat using half oil. I love the tart and light sweet taste . The crust is too die for , it is so crumbly , buttery and prefect for a quick breakfast with protein or a snack . I did not put the sprinkle of cinnamon or powder sugar over the bar but it would have been great if giving them as gifts for holiday.

one min chocolate cake in a mug

This is very good with either a. flour or oat flour or a combo of both. Place in ramkins and they work out great . I make place 1 tbsp of frosting in middle and stir and than add a little bit more of almond milk to make chocolate cake pudding.

homemade crunchy granola

With diabetes I needed to find a tasty granola that was full of flavor but would give me around 15 grams of carbos. So I had to tweet a few recipes to get this one. You could add vanilla extract which i may do next time. This makes a lot of granola and if you wanted more you could have it since it is low in carbos. I freeze most of this and leave out about 5 servings for snack and bkft. Enjoy.!

lemon chickpea quinoa salad gluten free

got recipes from back of box but changed it ti fix my carbs allowance. This is the best salad I have tried so far !
very tasty and kept me full /sugar was within range after 2 hours after eating.

old fashion gluten free cornbread

I used bow & arrow brand blue corn. I used the 8 inch cast iron pan.

Gluten free chilli

This recipe I changed from Mccormick's site because I like my chilli chunky and a little bit sweet. I wanted to have more than 4 servings to freeze half . It is the best tasting with bread and butter and a little bit of fruit on side. Enjoy!

Lebanese BBQmeatballs

I believe I reduced the spicy quality of these meatballs since I can't handle ....so adjust to your liking. These are great on a salad . I like them with pasta or potatoes and asparagus.

Gluten free strawberry scones

I changed this recipe from gluten free on a shoe string because I wanted it to have a more whole grain texture. Worked out great!

Gluten free Zucchini bread

THis one turned out great with using different flours. I will explain the reason I had to use bob red mills flour in description instead of my homemade.

French onion soup , Gluten free

THe recipe called for red wine but I did not have, so I am using Sherry instead. Flour called for 1 tbsp but recipe maker would not let me change. I made homemade croutons with the bread in oven .

corn and oat cornbread

This is great with Turbinado sugar and the color is rich. I would have liked it in muffins but I used a 9 inch baking pan. Would be great with a bowl of soup.

Gluten free Cranberry orange scones

These turned out so much better than just using one GF flour mix. They taste just like a scone , I was so pleased to come up with the recipes so I could feel normal again. Enjoy! Just a note!::The last 4 ingred.s are for the sugar glaze, so do that last.

Laurie's homemade cream of brocolli soup

So creamy and has chunks of brocolli left in it so you don't feel like your eating baby food. Yummy!

Laurie's organic homemade meatloaf

Mix ingredients together and place in long glass dish . Shape oblong and put cut onions and peppers on top with ketup.

homemade chocolate pudding by ellie krieger

This is better than boxed jello pudding...and so much healthier. I did not put sugar as the recipe asked for 1/3 cup. I am diabetic and need low cholestrol food.

low sugar carrot cake

Very delicious muffin for being healthy and I used about 1tbsp for the cheese spread on each muffin. I did not have cream cheese so I combined mascapone and creme franche 4 oz each. Wait until muffins are completely cooled for hours and than you can frost and freeze for indivdual treats when you want a pick me up. I leave four in refrig. for the week to have on hand for a fast bkft with my coffee or just as an after dinner dessert with fruit. If you are watching cholestrol like me I substitued the 4 eggs in the orginal recipe for 1 egg/ 1egg white / 1 flax egg and 1/4 to 1/2cup of applesauce. Enjoy your vit E and A with this mffin.

turkey corn burgers

THis is a very moist burger and full of flavor . You can substitute the tapenade for olives of any flavor and use any spices you like for a variety of different burgers. SOmetimes I dont even put the olive paste or corn in if I don't have it on hand. Enjoy.

ZUCCHINI CHOCOLATE MUFFINS

COMBINE EGGS, OIL COCOA , VANILLA AND ZUCCHINI MIX WELL. ADD REMAINING AND BEAT UNTIL WELL MIXED . POUR INTO GREASED AND FLOURED TINS. 1/2 FULLED. BAKE AT 350 FOR 15 TO 20 MINUTES DEPENDING ON HOW BIG YOU MAKE THESE MUFFINS. MY CALCULATIONS THE FIRST TIME WHERE 26 BUT IF I MADE THEM SMALLER THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH BETTER BECAUSE THEY ARE A VERY DENSE MUFFIN AND VERY TASTEY. I REVAMPED THIS RECIPE FROM AN AMISH COOKBOOK TO MAKE IT FIX BETTER SINCE i'M DIABETIC.
