Gluten-Free Ground Beef and Mushroom Casserole

This Gluten-Free Ground Beef and Mushroom Casserole is a thirty-minute weeknight pasta dinner. The pasta is smothered with a cheesy, meaty sauce seasoned with basil and oregano. This quick and easy gluten-free Casserole is great for any night of the week because you can have it ready on the table in under thirty minutes. beef and mushroom casserole, gluten freeGround beef recipes are always popular. The meat cooks quickly and is budget-friendly. Combine the ground beef with pasta, add mushrooms, herbs, tomatoes and two types of cheese, and a tasty, satisfying dinner is ready in no time.The Casserole is very simple to make. To start, cook the pasta in salted boiling water. In this recipe, the pasta is cooked separately so that the pasta doesn't absorb the tasty sauce - everything else is cooked in one skillet. The pasta is then swirled in the meaty, cheesy sauce and topped with provolone cheese slices. The Casserole is baked until the sauce starts to bubble, and the cheese topping is melted. The baking takes just a few minutes. There is nothing complicated about this perfect meal. beef and mushroom casserole 

what to serve with Ground Beef and Mushroom Casserole?

There are many options whenever you serve pasta. I like to add a light green salad, this adds freshness to the hearty gluten-free pasta casserole.

Or, you can serve this Gluten-Free Ground Beef and Mushroom Casserole just as is.

I used provolone cheese for the topping because I like the sharp taste of Provolone cheese. After all, it adds more flavour to this gluten-free pasta casserole. You can also buy Provolone dolce (sweet) with a very mild flavour if that is what you prefer. If you don't want to use Provolone cheese, you can replace it with mozzarella cheese, or any good melting cheese. beef and mushroom casserole, gluten free Next time you are short on time, pick up some ground beef, gluten-free pasta, a can of tomatoes, mushrooms and two types of cheese—everything else you most likely have in your pantry.

Gluten-Free Carrot Apple Loaf

I can honestly say this Gluten-Free Carrot Apple Loaf is one of the best gluten-free breakfast loaves. This recipe is a must-have in your repertoire. The simplest of gluten-free, very moist breakfast loaf… Yet a party of memorable flavours and textures. To add even more deliciousness, an aromatic Brown Butter Frosting sets this loaf apart from most. The frosting is optional, but it makes the Gluten-Free Carrot Apple Loaf insanely good! Another frosting I would recommend is the Royal Cream Cheese Frosting. apple carrot loaf, gluten free 

This Gluten-Free Carrot Apple Loaf is more than just delicious!

The three types of flour that make up this Carrot Apple Loaf are almond flour, sweet sorghum flour and arrowroot flour. We all know how nutritious almond flour is. But did you know that sorghum flour is high in fiber and an excellent source of antioxidants? It is also a low gi food, which helps to balance out blood sugars. Because sorghum flour is another high protein flour, it keeps gluten-free bakes soft tender, similar to almond flour.To keep the carrot apple loaf healthy-ish, I used heart-healthy olive oil, eggs, maple syrup and plenty of apples and carrots throughout. Starting your day with a slice of this delicious carrot apple loaf will keep your hunger at bay and provide you with lasting energy. brown butter frosting 

How to make perfectly baked breakfast loaf?

Have you baked bread, cake, muffins or a breakfast loaf, and it came out underbaked and deflated even though you followed the recipe exactly? This is because several factors will affect the length of baking time. apple carrot loaf the temperature of ingredients,Eggs, butter and milk should always be at room temperature, with the exception of pie crust and pastry dough.what about fruit?Moisture in fruit varies. Some apples or pears are juicier than others, which will affect the baking time.oven temperature,Not all oven temperatures are the same. To find out if your oven temperature is preheating to the right temperature, put it to the test. You will need an oven thermometer to do this.air pressure,Baking at high altitudes, the air pressure is lower. When the air pressure is lower, it takes longer to bake. You may have to adjust temperature or bake to test for doneness,The simplest way to check for doneness is, inserting a tester like a toothpick or a skewer in the center. If it comes out clean, the loaf is fully baked. If the batter clings to the tester, it needs more baking. Fully baked loaves, quick bread and muffins will feel resilient when the center is gently pressed with fingers. apple carrot loaf, gluten free This Gluten-Free Carrot Apple Loaf is packed with apples and carrots and is made with high protein flours. Because there is so much moistness, you can't rush the baking. And believe me, it is worth the wait. The healthy, Gluten-Free Carrot Apple Loaf is super moist and has a perfect crumble.

Instant Pot Beef And Lentil Soup

Mildly spiced Beef And Lentil Soup, with ground beef and a light crunch of carrots, celery, turnip and bell peppers. The thick and creamy soup is curry flavoured, a hint of cinnamon and creamed with coconut milk. For serving, this comforting soup is drizzled with optional hot chilli oil and a sprinkling of fresh herbs—an ideal hearty dish for rainy nights at home. beef and lentil soup 

Beef And Lentil Soup under 30 minutes,

Beef and lentil soup for nights when you crave comfort food and have very little time or energy to make a homemade warm, hearty meal. This soup is probably one of the easiest Instant Pot meals because it requires very little work. You will need thirty minutes from start to finish for the most flavourful full of healthy nutrients, Beefy Lentil Soup.  

health benefits of lentils,

Lentils come in various colours, green, brown, black and red. They look like a tiny bean and grow in pods. Lentils are a good source of protein, fiber, folic acid, potassium and iron. They are also low in calories, only about 116 calories per 100 grams of cooked lentils, and they are low in net carbs, only about 13 grams of net carbs per 100 grams of cooked lentils. By cooking lentils in an Instant Pot, the high-pressure cooking destroys lectins, a protein found in lentils and other beans that some people have trouble digesting. lentils 

to summarize,

This Beef And Lentil Soup is hearty enough to serve as a meal and satisfy big appetites, is nutritionally packed, and is super healthy. The best part, you can make this delicious soup any day of the week because it takes less than thirty minutes to make from start to the table. When lentils are cooked in an Instant Pot, you don't have to soak them overnight before cooking, another reason to use an Instant Pot. beef and lentil soup To serve, I like to top the Beef and Lentil soup with a drizzle of chilli oil and a sprinkle of herbs. Sometimes I add a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt. You can also add a slice of  Grain-Free Vegan Low Carb Bread or a Gluten-Free Butter Rolls for extra heartiness. beef and lentil soup For the latest recipes and tips, please like us on Facebook or follow us on Pinterest and  Instagram.

Gluten-Free Salmon Wellington Recipe

I am super excited about this Gluten-Free Salmon Wellington Recipe! This outstanding salmon dish doesn't need an introduction. Flaky gluten-free puff pastry made from scratch filled with fresh salmon and creamed cheesy spinach cooked to perfection. The delicate salmon is moist and smothered with a rich, creamy sauce gently flavoured with fresh garlic. Salmon Wellington dish is the right indulgence to cheer up the winter gloom. salmon wellington, gluten-free Salmon Wellington is company coming dish. This salmon recipe is all about simple ingredients with complex flavours, creating a rich and indulgent impressive dish. A bed of creamy spinach, cheese and a bite of garlic topped with salmon fillet baked in the flakiest pastry. It doesn't get any better than this. salmon wellington, gluten-free 

Salmon Wellington - the details,

You may think this gluten-free recipe is complicated. It really isn't. The pastry is super easy to make. The secret to flaky pastry is working with chilled ingredients and allowing the dough to chill before you roll it out.

The filling,

For this Salmon Wellington recipe, the spinach mixture is made with two types of cheeses. Cream cheese and mozzarella cheese. The spinach is wilted in garlic butter, flavoured with either dill or thyme, then mixed with gluten-free bread crumbs and the two kinds of cheese. I did not add salt to the spinach mixture because the cheeses and bread crumbs are salted already. Taste the spinach, and if you feel you need more salt, add a sprinkle of salt. salmon wellington, gluten-free 

The salmon,

When it comes to any fish, it has to be fresh. If the fish has even a slight fishy smell, don't use it. Remember, salmon is the star in this recipe so make sure it is super fresh. Try and get a thicker cut salmon fillet. If the salmon is too thin, you will have too much pastry. Often the salmon is sold with skin on, ask the fish department to remove the skin, they will be happy to do it. And, always season the salmon with salt and pepper before adding it to the pastry.Once the pastry dough has chilled and the spinach mixture is ready, roll out the dough as per directions. Place salmon in the middle of the pastry spread the spinach mixture over the top, and fold the pastry dough over, including the ends. Flip it over and place it on the prepared baking sheet. Nothing to it! salmon wellington, gluten-free I can't tell you how delicious the Gluten-Free Salmon Wellington dish is. The gluten-free buttery pastry is light and flaky, and the filling is creamy with the salmon perfectly cooked. Don't get intimidated by this impressive salmon dish. Once you make it, you will find there is nothing to it. I like to serve Salmon Wellington with Cabbage and Fennel Citrus Salad or Cabbage Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing. Both of these salads are great accompaniments to salmon.For the latest recipes and tips, please like us on Facebook or follow us on Pinterest and  Instagram.

Double Chocolate Soft Cookies – Gluten Free

The very best Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Soft Cookies. Cookies made with chocolate are everyone's favourite, especially when they are double chocolate soft cookies. These gluten-free cookies are soft with chocolate chips throughout. The cookie dough is made with cocoa making these soft cookies incredibly delicious. soft cookies, gluten free 

What is different about these Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Soft Cookies?

These double chocolate soft cookies are healthier than most. A classic chocolate chip cookie is typically made with butter, refined sugar and flour. In this cookie recipe, there is no added refined sugar. The only sweetener used is healthy honey. I used half the butter, and to add to the goodness, these double chocolate soft cookies are made with healthy unsweetened cocoa powder. The best part, you can't tell that these delicious cookies are gluten-free. chocolate soft cookies, gluten free 

Cookies make a great hostess gift!

Bringing a freshly baked gluten-free box of cookies as a hostess gift is always a big hit. You can also add other cookies to the box like the Grain-Free Crescent Cookies and Gluten-Free Thumbprint Cookies, both of these gluten-free cookies are very popular during the holiday season. I believe you can never have enough delicious, freshly baked cookies at any time of the year. All you need is a festive cookie box to put them in. gluten-free soft cookies When it comes to cookies, no one can resist soft double chocolate cookies. We all have our favourite cookie recipes, but chocolate always prevails, especially with kids and me :-) In our home, chocolate chip cookies are especially popular. So I couldn't just stop at one gluten-free chocolate cookie recipe. I have created several gluten-free chocolate chip cookies and the One Bowl Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies  and the Grain-Free Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies have been most popular. I have even made Keto Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies which are suitable for those that are following a low carb diet. double chocolate soft cookies Double Chocolate Soft Cookies are amazing when the cookies are still slightly warm and freshly baked because the chocolate is still melting, making these cookies irresistible. Because I wanted these cookies to look festive, I added sparkle to them. This is optional, and I would not do this for an everyday cookie treat. I rolled them in raw turbinado sugar just before they go in the oven to add the sparkle. You can also roll them in powdered sugar. soft cookies This is the month when it really starts to sink in that winter with full blown cold weather is here. One of the best ways to get through the chilliest, darkest season is with delicious, comforting double chocolate soft cookies.

One is partially filled with water and the other with the chocolate glaze ingredients. The water should be super hot but not boiling, place the other pot over the water without touching the water.

Clam Chowder with Charred Corn

Thick and creamy supreme Clam Chowder filled with clams, potatoes, bacon, sweet charred corn and extra veggies. This recipe is not the classic New England clam chowder, but it is the clam chowder of all chowders. The broth is creamy but not heavy with a perfect balance of clams and potatoes and a hint of thyme. I also added a few carrots and celery for extra heartiness and sweet charred corn. The corn is what sets this chowder apart from most. clam chowder When I decided to create this white clam chowder recipe, I wanted more than just potatoes and clams and at the same time maintain its individuality. In come the veggies with the charred corn, making this clam chowder an adventure of textures and flavours. Every spoonful is filled with so much deliciousness.

What is the difference between Manhattan Chowder and New England Clam Chowder?

It is very easy to spot which chowder is which. Manhattan clam chowder is red, and New England clam chowder is white. This is because Manhattan has a tomato-based broth, and the New England is the cream-based broth. In addition to the tomato broth, Manhattan clam chowder has more veggies and is more like an Italian stew. The New England version — the broth is made with cream or milk, potatoes and clams, and has thicker consistency, typically served with oyster crackers. The white clam chowder is known to be the king of clam chowders. clam chowder recipes 

How to make charred corn kernels under 5 minutes

I learned this technique a very long time ago. Fresh corn is the best, especially when it is slightly charred because it has extra sweetness and is more flavourful. I often add charred corn to my soups and stews. To char the corn is super easy. Heat a large dry skillet like a cast-iron skillet over high heat, add the corn kernels and allow the corn to char without stirring it too often. It takes less than five minutes to char the corn. You could add some salt and cracked black pepper and eat it with a spoon. It is that good. This corn is also great when added to salsa or over nachos. You can use fresh or frozen corn, both char beautifully. clam chowder  

the details for the clam chowder recipe,

To start, crisp the bacon, then set the bacon aside for the very end. I add the bacon to the clam chowder at the end, keeping the bacon crispy and delicious. Once the bacon is done, using the same pot, add some butter and saute the onions, celery and carrots. Then stir in the herbs with garlic. Once everything is aromatic, add the potatoes, clam broth, charred corn and a little water. Cook for a brief ten minutes until the potatoes are tender. Since the potatoes are cut into small pieces, they take very little time to cook. cream soup The next thing is to thicken the broth. The classic New England Chowder is thickened with flour. Since this is a gluten-free Clam Chowder, I used a grain-free starch mixed with the cream. You can use arrowroot or tapioca both work well. This cream mixture is added to the chowder with the clams and half the bacon bits. The chowder is cooked just until it starts to thicken. Season with salt and pepper, and it’s ready to be served. When I serve this creamy thick soup, I like to top the soup with bacon bits and fresh herbs.This Clam Chowder is not a classic, but definitely comforting. Add a side of the freshly baked Gluten-Free Cheddar Corn Biscuits, and you have a meal that will satisfy even big appetites.

Gluten-Free Cheddar Corn Biscuits

These Gluten-Free Cheddar Corn Biscuits showcase fresh corn and cheddar cheese with light sprinkle of thyme. You can make these gluten-free savoury biscuits in minutes — the recipe is incredibly easy, making the Cheddar Corn Biscuits an excellent side for last-minute meals. Since we are officially starting the winter holiday season, comfort food such as hearty soups and stews to keep us warm and cozy are on top of the list. The Gluten-Free Cheddar Corn Biscuits will transform everyday weeknight meals into hearty dinners. cheddar corn biscuits, gluten-free 

the ingredients,

These savoury cakes are made with plenty of fresh corn, butter, cheddar cheese and buttermilk. These four ingredients are added to a light dough made with gluten-free flour, cornmeal, baking powder and baking soda. For added flavour, I used thyme and freshly ground black pepper. Honestly, nothing to it! These small biscuits are cheesy, buttery with fresh corn flavour throughout.cast iron dutch ovenEnameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven - 6-Quart, Light Pink buy here →

the inspiration,

I wanted something more than just a gluten-free butter roll or crusty bread to go with hearty winter meals. So why not something with a bit more flavour and texture. In comes these Cheddar Corn Biscuits - savoury gluten-free cakes you can serve with just about any meal, especially the Peruvian Chicken Soup savoury biscuits, gluten-free 

the time!

One of the things that I thought was if I wanted to add a side to a hearty meal, it had to be quick to prepare with very little mess to clean up. To make the gluten-free biscuits you will need only one large bowl to mix everything and a large cookie scoop, or you can also use a large spoon to make the Cheddar Corn Biscuits. It took me only 10 minutes to make the gluten-free dough and 15 minutes of baking time. The gluten-free biscuits are best when served warm, which is great because you don't have to wait for them to cool fully. cheddar corn biscuits, gluten-free 

the flavour,

These Gluten-Free Cheddar Corn Biscuits are flavoured with plenty of sweet corn and sharp cheddar cheese. However, I felt the cakes needed a herb for extra flavour. My favourite herb with cheese is thyme. So I tried thyme and found that this mild herb made the gluten-free biscuits extra flavourful and super tasty. If you prefer another herb, you can use rosemary, parsley or marjoram. For the rosemary being it such a pungent tasting herb, I would only use 1 1/2 teaspoons not to overpower the sweet-tasting corn and the cheddar flavour.  cheddar corn biscuits, gluten free I like the Cheddar Corn Biscuits when they are still warm, and the cheese is melting. As with all gluten-free baking, the savoury cakes are best when they are fresh. If you have leftovers for the next day, pop them in a hot oven for about 4 minutes and enjoy!For the latest recipes and tips, please like us on Facebook or follow us on Pinterest and  Instagram.

New York-Style Gluten-Free Pizza

Best Ever New York Style Pizza made with a gluten-free crust. The wide slices of thin, crispy crust foldable pizza, just like the authentic New York-Style Pizza, are insanely delicious. The gluten-free pizza is topped with freshly made pizza sauce flavoured with basil, oregano, thyme and garlic, and plenty of grated mozzarella cheese. Add extra toppings if you wish, and this will undoubtedly be one of the best gluten-free pizzas by far.

What is a New York-Style Pizza?

The famous New York-Style Pizza is a thin crispy crust pizza that is foldable, cut into large pieces, and the toppings are tomato sauce, grated mozzarella cheese, and then your favourite toppings. The more the better, because they sink in the melted cheese. When making Italian pizza, the cheese topping goes on last. If you haven't tried a New York-Style Pizza before, you haven't lived….honestly, it is so good! New York-Style Pizza, gluten free 

NY-Style Gluten-Free Pizza Crust,

Classic NY style pizza crust is made with a yeast dough and takes time to make. In this gluten-free pizza recipe, the dough is leavened with baking soda, and the entire pizza takes only fifteen minutes to put together and fifteen minutes to bake. This means you can have a crispy gluten-free pizza ready to enjoy in thirty minutes. Who needs a take out? New York style pizza crust, gluten free 

How is this New York-Style Gluten-Free Pizza made?

I love this gluten-free pizza dough recipe because it is super easy and takes very little time. To make the gluten-free dough, first, whisk the dry ingredients. Then add the wet ingredients, and using a spatula, mix until you form a ball of dough - total time, about one minute.The gluten-free pizza dough is soft and a bit sticky, and it needs to be rolled out. The best way to do this is between two sheets of plastic wrap and a little sprinkling of flour. Once the dough is rolled out, the top sheet peels off easily, and the dough is transferred using the other sheet onto the pizza pan. The NY style pizza has a slightly raised edge around the perimeter, which is made by pressing the edge towards the center until it is slightly pan

pizza sauce, the details,

The pizza sauce flavour is essential to get the most flavourful NY-style pizza. The sauce is made with herbs, garlic, a splash of olive oil and if you like some heat, red pepper flakes. The sauce is simmered for four minutes, and it's ready. The store-bought pizza sauce doesn't come even close to this simply made NY-style gluten-free pizza sauce.The interesting thing about New York-Style pizza is the toppings. In most pizza recipes, the final topping is typically the cheese. However, this does not apply to New York-Style pizza or Chicago style pizza. The first layer is the pizza sauce and then the mozzarella cheese. Then, all the other toppings. Often the NY-style pizza has only the tasty pizza sauce and the grated mozzarella cheese. Today I used five toppings, the pizza sauce, cheese, onions, mushrooms and gluten-free pepperoni. The pizza turned out outstanding. New York-Style pizza, gluten free 

What to do with leftover pizza?

Having any leftover pizza is highly unlikely. If you have a slice or two, preheat the oven to 400 F and reheat the pizza for six minutes. The pizza will be just as delicious.

Gluten-Free Italian Parmesan Bread

Making fresh bread from scratch such as this Gluten-Free Italian Parmesan Bread has a wonderful back to basics feel. This classic Italian Parmesan Bread recipe is just like the bread we know and love except without gluten and xanthan gum. The freshly grated Parmesan cheese adds a hint of delicious cheese flavour. Crusty on the outside and soft, pillowy on the inside, this Italian bread adds a nice touch to your dinner table. gluten-free Italian Parmesan Bread 

this Italian Parmesan Bread recipe is almost effortless, 

You may be surprised to see how easy this gluten-free bread recipe is...much easier to make than you might think. You can't mess up this gluten-free bread is that simple! This Parmesan bread is best when still slightly warm right out of the oven. The aroma of freshly baked bread in your home will make anyone hungry.  Serve with one of your favourite gluten-free pasta dishes or hearty soups and stews. My favourite way is as a stand-alone bread with garlic herb butter dip, YUM! gluten-free bread dough 

So let's get started,

First, you proof the yeast in warm water with a sweetener and olive oil. Once the yeast is ready and bubbly, combine the dry ingredients and add to the yeast mixture. Using a spatula, mix until a dough forms and rest for five minutes. Then, form into a log. There's nothing to it. This is one of the easiest gluten-free bread dough recipes ever!…For the finish, sprinkle the bread with extra cheese and continue baking for about five more minutes. I like to cool the bread for a few minutes, then slice and dip or top with olive tapenade.

use or not to use a baguette pan?

If you are looking for more height, I highly recommend using a perforated baguette pan. However, if you don't have one, use a baking sheet. The bread will be slightly wider and thinner but still insanely delicious. What I love about this recipe is there is no kneading or rolling, making the bread recipe super easy and with very little mess. gluten-free Italian Parmesan Bread While the bread is baking, I like to prepare a herby, garlicky butter dip. To do this, melt butter add minced or grated garlic and your favourite herbs—Cook over low heat for one minute. Serve warm for dipping. Or chill and use as a spread for the freshly baked Italian Parmesan Bread. Italian Parmesan Bread, Gluten-Free For the latest recipes and tips, please like us on Facebook or follow us on Pinterest and  Instagram.

Instant Pot Creamy Lentils with Roasted Squash

Break out the Instant Pot for the easiest and tastiest Creamy Lentils with Roasted Squash. Sometimes the bright beauty of a vegetarian dish with a party of flavours and textures is all you need. The Lentils are overflowing with Indian flavours and coconut milk creaminess. Only to be served with roasted squash. This plant-based meal is hearty and healthy to satisfy hungry appetites any night of the week. lentils with herbs Lentils and Lectins,This very rustic healthy lentil dish is made easily in an Instant Pot. I chose to use Instant Pot for two reasons. The lentils cook at a fraction of the time than if you cooked them on a stovetop. And, high-pressure cooking destroys the lectins that naturally occur in lentils. Eating food containing lectins may cause digestive distress in some people because the body cannot digest lectins. curry spices 

an array of spices in this Creamy Lentil dish,

Lentils are delicious as stand-alone dishes with just salt, pepper and olive oil, or sprinkled in salads. However, by adding several Indian spices, tomatoes and coconut milk, simple lentils transform into the most delicious comforting meal. I have added many spices to this lentil dish, such as cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, mustard seeds, anise seeds, coriander, cardamom, cloves, and even more flavour with onions, garlic and ginger. If you like spiciness, add red chillies. I know some of you may look at the long list of spices and think...nah, I am not making this. No problem, you can always substitute two tablespoons of gluten-free curry powder for the spices. The flavour will not be the same, but the lentils will be deliciously seasoned and creamy. creamy lentils, vegan 

Stovetop or Instant Pot?

I have given you two good reasons why lentils should be cooked in an Instant Pot. However, should you chose to cook the lentil on the stovetop, follow the same directions, except cook the lentils for about 45 minutes until they soften to your liking. This lentil recipe takes very little hands on time. Besides chopping the onion and garlic and cutting the squash, there is nothing else to do, making this a great last minute naturally gluten-free meal. delicata squash 

what about the squash?

For me, there is nothing more delicious than simply roasted squash with just a splash of coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. You can also sprinkle the squash with some nutmeg for a different flavour, but it is unnecessary for this dish. The sweetness of the squash makes a perfect addition to this vegan Creamy Lentil dish. I would recommend using either delicata or kabocha squash. Both don't have to be peeled because the roasted squash skin is tender and full of flavour...YUM! creamy lentils, healthy I hope you give this healthy Creamy Lentil and Roasted Squash dish a try because it is delicious and satisfying. If you feel adventurous, make some gluten-free naan bread and truly experience the Indian way of eating. Just before serving, you can swirl in yogurt and top with fresh cilantro. Enjoy! creamy lentils, healthy For the latest recipes and tips, please like us on Facebook or follow us on Pinterest and  Instagram.

Gluten-Free Honey Cinnamon Cookies

These Gluten-Free Honey Cinnamon Cookies are a great way to start the cookie season. Yes, it is that time of the year when baking is in full force. Today I wanted to share a melt in your mouth cookie that celebrates Halloween for all the little rascals out there to enjoy. This gluten-free cookie recipe is made with gluten-free flour blend, butter, honey, cinnamon, baking soda and a few drops of vanilla. The gluten-free cookie is a basic butter cookie recipe lightly flavoured with cinnamon and vanilla. honey cinnamon cookies, gluten free  

the cookie decorating does not have to be perfect as long as the cookie is :-)

I love this Gluten-Free Honey Cinnamon Cookie recipe because it is excellent for decorating. So I thought, why not use it for Halloween and add some nifty cookie decorations. I will admit I am the worst person to decorate cookies or cakes. This skill is definitely, not on top of my list of accomplishments. I did my best, and my family said…as long as the cookies taste delicious, that is all that matters.

It is not about a perfectly looking cookie. It's the texture and flavour - and this cookie has it all. The Honey Cinnamon Cookies will melt in your mouth, and they are delicious. gluten-free honey cinnamon cookies 

Easiest cookie glaze recipe,

With this Honey Cinnamon Cookie, I wanted to include a basic cookie glaze recipe. However, I wanted something more than just sweetness. Typically I would add a few drops of pure vanilla extract to the glaze. But since the cookie already has vanilla, I decided to add a few drops of fresh lemon juice and honey. The cookie glaze was magically more delicious and complimented these Honey Cinnamon Cookies perfectly. Those few drops of fresh lemon juice took away that super sweetness, which I find sometimes overpowers the delicate cookie flavour. gluten-free cookie glaze The cookie glaze must be made just before you are ready to decorate the cookies because the glaze will harden very quickly. While you are using the glaze, give it a good stir if it starts to set. If you want to add food colouring, I would recommend using plant based food colouring, I think it is healthier, and the colours are so vibrant and natural looking. If the glaze is too thick, always thin it out AFTER you add the food colour. And add only a few drops at a time of water until you reach the desired consistency. If you find the glaze too thin, add a few teaspoons of confectioners sugar, also known as powdered sugar.

decorating honey cinnamon cookies,

I decorated these Gluten-Free Honey Cinnamon Cookies with the Halloween theme because Halloween is just a few days away. But, whatever season you are celebrating, feel free to do your favourite cookie decorations. I am sure they will be much better than what I did :-) If you want to keep the cookie simple for everyday enjoyment, what I like to do is make the basic glaze and lightly sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar…YUM honey cinnamon cookies, gluten free I hope you have fun making these Honey Cinnamon Cookies as much as I did, and if you need more cookie inspiration recipes, the Grain-Free Sugar Cookies with Maple Icing or the Gluten-Free Chocolate Swirl Shortbread Cookies are heavenly. honey cinnamon cookies, gluten-free Happy season and stay safe!Kristina xxFor the latest recipes and tips, please like us on Facebook or follow us on Pinterest and  Instagram.

Creamy and meaty sauce made with buttermilk, cheese, tomato paste, ground beef, mushrooms, onions, garlic and spices.

All you need is thirty minutes from start to the table. I know, hard to believe. Everything you crave in lasagna is in this stovetop lasagna meal...the meaty sauce, cheese and the classic Italian spices. The picture says it all. However if you prefer a grain-free  lasagna, you may enjoy our Grain-Free Vegetarian Lasagna or Keto Lasagna.

Today I had very little time to make dinner, plus Friday is a night where I am pretty tired from working long hours the entire week. The weather is grim, and my family craves comfort food. In our home, Italian food such as pizza or pasta is what I end up cooking on Fridays. It has to be a comforting meal. However, today I was super short on time, so I decided to make an easier version of lasagna. And besides, gluten-free take out is never an option at our house. gluten-free stove top lasagna 

You will need only 30 minutes to make this Gluten-Free Stovetop Lasagna :-)

Besides making this gluten-free pasta dish an easy weeknight meal, I wanted to simplify it as much as possible. So here goes! While the pasta was cooking, I made a tasty Italian meat sauce. I added plenty of spices such as oregano, basil, thyme and rosemary, some broth and tomato paste. If you have gluten-free Italian seasoning, then use it, and forget about the other spices. My pantry has just about every spice you can think of, so I always mix my spices. I would add a tablespoon of the Italian seasoning if I were using it. stovetop lasagna, gluten-free By the time the meat sauce is ready, about 15 minutes, the pasta is cooked. Now all you have to do is mix everything. First, mix buttermilk with arrowroot or tapioca flour, then add it to the meat sauce with some cheese. Once the sauce starts to boil, add the pasta and fresh basil. Stir everything and top with bocconcini. Pop the skillet under a broiler for a couple of minutes, just long enough to melt the cheese on the top and dinner is ready. If you don't want to use the broiler, add the cheese to the sauce, give it a good stir and heat it through until the cheese starts to melt. You are done…finito! gluten-free stovetop lasagna  

the secret ingredient that made this stovetop lasagna,

This one ingredient may surprise you, but it is a trick I learned a long time ago. We all know ricotta cheese is somewhat pricy, so I wanted to skip this cheese and used buttermilk instead, which is very economical. The results were outstanding. The sauce is creamy and has less fat. Wait until you make this Gluten-Free Stovetop Lasagna. You will be pleasantly surprised…well, at least my family was. They all loved the lasagna, and all it took me is thirty minutes from start to finish. If you have the time and energy, add a light salad or make this super easy gluten-free cheese and garlic flatbread. stovetop lasagna It's Friday, my feet are up, and I am enjoying a glass of red with my delicious Italian meal. If today is Friday or Saturday night for you, have an amazing weekend!For the latest recipes and tips, please like us on Facebook or follow us on Pinterest and  Instagram.Kristina xx

Gluten-Free Apple Turnovers

Freshly made at home Gluten-Free Apple Turnovers. There is nothing better than homemade pastries. These flaky pastries are filled with fresh apple cinnamon filling and are made totally from scratch. The shortcrust pastry is light, slightly crispy, filled with bubbling buttery fresh apples lightly dusted with cinnamon and fresh lemon juice. The Gluten-Free Apple Turnovers are insanely delicious! long for something sweet and fresh… and this ticks all the boxes! gluten-free apple turnovers 

Why I made Gluten-Free Apple Turnovers?

With the apple season is in full force, what better reason than to bake something sweet and delicious that the entire family will love. Apple turnovers are something I grew up with and loved, especially warm right out of the oven. My grandmother always made them for me whenever I visited her, but she used the classic store-bought chilled puffed pastry. I tried some store bought frozen gluten-free apple turnovers, and honestly, I couldn't eat them. Another apple dessert you may enjoy is the Gluten-Free Breakfast Apple Yogurt Cake gluten-free apple turnovers Today, I decided to challenge myself and make gluten-free apple turnovers totally from scratch. This apple recipe has been on my mind for a very long time, so I knew today was the day. The weather is cold and rainy here on the west coast, so what better way to spend the day than baking fresh Gluten-Free Apple Turnovers.

First, I made the sweet pastry. To give you an idea, this gluten-free pastry texture is something between shortcrust and puff pastry. The pastry turned out well. Then I wanted a fresh apple filling to compliment the pastry. This part was super easy. The fresh apple chunks are briefly cooked in a buttery, cinnamon sauce with fresh lemon juice. The filling is sooo good! apple turnovers 

assembling the Apple Turnovers, 

The next part is assembling the Apple Turnovers. First, let me stress that when you work with pastry dough, it has to be cold. You want to have small pieces of butter in the flour. The butter is what gives the flakiness to the pastry. The dough is rolled out into two squares and then cut into four more squares. Now add the filling to half the square and seal the pastry. I found it a lot of fun making the apple turnovers. Although I had troubles keeping away from the filling, I just had to keep tasting it….YUM! gluten-free apple turnovers As with all gluten-free baking, these pastries are the best when fresh and slightly warm. I like to warm them in a hot oven for a few minutes for that freshly baked texture for leftovers. I have also tried popping them in the microwave for 15 seconds, and they were almost as good. If you want to make the Gluten-Free Apple Turnovers into a special dessert, top them with vanilla bean ice cream…heaven!
