It is officially soup season at our home. It was a dreary, rainy day and the one of the only ways to end it on a good note is to fill my belly with some warm soup. I’ve had a butternut squash sitting on my counter for the last week or so, and this seemed like the perfect occasion to use it. What I like best about this recipe? It’s savory, not sweet like other squash soups. But, more importantly, it’s easy – ready in about 45 minutes without the need to constantly mess with it. Pair it with a salad and you have a fantastically satisfying meal. Vegetarian? No problem! Omit the bacon and use a veggie bouillon cube. Like it spicier? Add more Sriracha to suit your taste.

Every now and then I get a craving for these – loaded with texture and great flavor. I used to order them off the gluten free menu at a popular restaurant, but after getting “glutened” three times, that place came off my list. So, when I get a craving, I just make them myself…and get many more for the money! Rarely, I get the added bonus of leftovers for lunch the next day. Hmmm, maybe I should double the recipe!
Wings. Smothered in sauce, grilled, fried, hot, mild…the list goes on. As someone with celiac, wings are generally off limits due to cross contamination issues with restaurant fryers. So I just make them at home when I get a craving. It’s pretty simple to do. I’ve tried many kinds of wings, but my favorite are the ones with a dry rub on them, and grilled or roasted. Not only do they taste amazing, but have much less mess than their smothered counterparts. This recipe is simple, and flexible so you can make as few or as many as you want. Continue Reading
Bacon+Sriracha+Sweet Potato = Pure deliciousness. It is the collision of three of my favorite flavors and is a one baking pan deal, ready in under 45 minutes. If you have access to Benton’s Bacon, well then, you’ll just take it right over the top (and will probably never want to eat another brand of bacon again). A little Benton’s goes a long way in this recipe. Mine sits in the freezer until I need a little fix, when I cut an inch or so of bacon from the package. If I didn’t have self-control, it’s possible I’d eat the entire package in one sitting! Continue Reading
Tasty and filling, these spring rolls are ready in about 45 minutes. Baking the rolls add a little crisp to the finished product. Depending on you mood and tastebuds, choose from the three sauces for dipping.
Yes, it’s true. I have a thing for Sriracha. It’s been by my side in the kitchen for the last few weeks. Here it makes an appearance with butter and shrimp. Quick, easy and delicious as an appetizer or toss it into your favorite gluten free noodles (or zucchini noodles) for an awesome dinner. Something tells me you may fall in love with it too.

A delicious bacon garnish appeared on a twice-baked potato at a restaurant the other night. Because I was told it had gluten in it, I just watched as everyone raved about it. The server was kind enough to share the simple ingredients with us and after a few attempts, voila! A delicious gluten free bacon to use as a garnish, to top a burger, or (for shame), as a snack!
