Gluten-Free Recipes- A Rockin' Summer Round-Up


Why am I posting a Rockin' Summer Gluten-Free Recipe Round-Up? Because Dear Reader (unlike the hoards of Arriba County residents standing in line to buy fireworks in the sweltering Walmart parking lot), I have no plans for the Fourth of July. No gluten-free barbecues or family picnics. No recipes necessary. I ain't cookin'.

See that frosty glass of dairy-free chocolate goodness? That's what I'll be chillin' with all weekend as I kick back with my Number One Honey and dig in to the third season of Deadwood. I'll be munching organic popcorn (non-GMO, naturally) and whipping up blueberry smoothies. I might stuff a corn tortilla or two. Or throw together my Champagne Vinegar Potato Salad Recipe. We did buy a watermelon. 

But beyond those modest efforts? I'm hangin'. And catching up with Calamity Jane. I have a serious crush. And writer David Milch is my word-slinging hero.

So while I'm immersing myself in the riches of our very own Shakespeare, in the spirit of not keeping to myself things that are too good not to share, here are some gorgeous, tasty and often quite easy gluten-free recipes I've spotted lately. Enjoy!

Gluten-Free Shepherd's Pie Two Ways (one vegan)

For today's menu? Gluten-Free Shepherd's Pie Two Ways (one vegan). A frigid wind is rolling through, interrupting our whisper of solar warmth with bracing bursts of frosty cold. But the skies are clear and cobalt blue, nudging out the low wooly gray of yesterday. Still, it's the kind of day that calls for comfort in the form of food. Something baked in a crock. Something piping hot and old fashioned. Something with mashed potatoes. A savory pie, I said out loud, standing at the window watching our pair of cardinals and chickadees take turns at the feeder stocked with black oil sunflower seeds. Don't tease me, said my husband from his corner study, looking up, I imagine, from his latest screenplay effort. I wouldn't joke about a thing like pie, I assured him. I'm thinking- a shepherd's pie, I said. More to myself than him. But not the usual shepherd's pie. No lamb. No beef. No onion. No peas, I murmured. Please, he said. No peas. (His hearing is ex

Gluten-Free Goddess Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Banana bread for the rest of us. No apologies needed.  Out there in the cold cruel world, Darling, some folks apparently (still) view our gluten-free lifestyle through a jaded foodie lens, believing, first of all, that gluten-free anything is never going to taste anything but awful, and second, that this whole gluten-free trend (their word not mine) is a fad not worthy of serious consideration, appreciation and compassion. Apart from the standard (and brief) lip service that non-afflicted food writers, bloggers and journalists pay to celiac disease, adhering to the medical treatment that is a gluten-free diet is degraded- for that sexy topical hook- to a "bandwagon". An eating disorder. A diet by choice. They dub it a controversy. Two food bloggers referenced the gluten-free diet on a social networking site recently, bragging about their "iron stomachs" and their ability to chow down on everything, implying that those of us unable to ingest gluten merely have &

Gluten-Free Fudge Brownies - Our New Favorite Recipe

Our go-to brownie recipe- for years- was this fabulous Dark Chocolate Brownie Recipe , created back in the early, innocent gluten-free days of 2006. And it has never failed us. We must have baked hundreds of these brownies. I'm so not kidding. So why mess around and experiment with success, you might, quite logically, ask? Well. I cannot come up with a definitive philosophy behind my impulse to try something new. All I can say is, It's my nature. And that's good news for brownie lovers everywhere. Because these fudgy-good gems are easy to make. No xanthan gum or weird ingredients. Just rich chocolate goodness. What better way to ring in a New Year? So go. Get fudgy. Peace - Love - Chocolate, Karina xo

Snow Day Cake with Blueberries

Last night's winter storm crept in overnight, waking me in the pitch black dark of 4 AM with its silence, its ten-inch thick blanket of fresh fallen snow. Magic like that can wake you up out of a sound sleep. After padding around to the windows to see if flakes were still drifting down and downy, sticking to the bird-feeders in impossibly high heaps, I couldn't get back to sleep, so I preheated the oven and baked us a tea cake for breakfast.  It's a simple muffin style cake studded on the top with blueberries. I know. I know. Blueberries? In January. Well. Yeah. Because January. Because snowstorm. And honestly, who doesn't crave blueberries all year round? Why should they be relegated only to summer recipes?  That's why The Goddess invented frozen blueberries. For snow days. And recipes like this one.  Stay cozy wherever you are, and stay safe. Bake a cake.  Add a little sweetness to your weekend. Karina xo

New Chocolate Muffins for Winter 2022

Facing the Winter of 2022 takes a dash of courage. A pinch of patience (well, way more than a pinch!). And a hopeful refresh of your favorite treat go-tos. In other words. HERE WE GO AGAIN. Bring on the chocolate. So with that in mind, my beloveds. This is my latest version of a chocolate breakfast treat- a gluten-free muffin with options. If you need a sweet- but not too sweet- lure to start your day, these cocoa infused beauties might be just the ticket. If- like me- you may need a little extra deliciousness, especially on a gloomy day, you can add in (like I did, I confess) extras. Like, dark chocolate chips. And walnuts or pecans. It's up to you how much indulgence you need to get you through. We don't judge. The added bonus? Your kitchen will smell like a bakery. Like a chocolate hug. Like... love, maybe. Because the secret ingredient is always LOVE. Put love in your baking and your day is sure to be brighter. And more delicious. Love yourself. Take care of your Someone Sp

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Fabulous Chicken Enchiladas- worthy of a game day get-together. Yummy. Easy. Chicken enchiladas. I never tire of them. And I'm not alone. My chicken enchilada recipes are among the most popular recipes on the blog. It's understandable. Enchiladas make a perfect make-ahead recipe for a weeknight supper, football Sunday, or a pot luck gathering. And they are (easily) gluten-free.  Make enchiladas earlier in the day- in this handsome ceramic baking pan , if you like. Half time nosh is done. Serve with this longtime family favorite-   Joey's Rockin' Guac   and tortilla chips. As easy as uno, dos, tres. Stay safe out there! Karina xo

Butternut Chili Spicy 'n Sweet

A New Year's bowl of comfort for 2022. Sweet 'n spicy chili with a dash of lime. New Year's Day is almost upon us. Rather than wax nostalgic about the bumpy ride of the year we've had, I'd rather post a simple home cooked recipe I know you'll love.  Making a pot of bean soup or legume heavy chili to welcome in a freshly minted year is a tradition as old as the hills. From Italian Pasta Fagioli to homestyle southern Hoppin' John , beans somehow acquired the favorable reputation of attracting good luck.  Why? I haven't a clue. But I do know this.  Beans paired with cubes of winter squash make for one sweet and tasty chili. That, Dear Reader, you can take to the bank. Wishing you all good luck, good health and lots of love in 2022. Karina xo
