This recipe was absolutely delicious!! I am always looking for good gluten free recipes. Thank you so much.


Paver, the easiest way to reheat it is in a microwave using a glass dish. But you can also reheat it in the oven as long as the dish has a heavy lid


How would you recommend reheating this dish if you were to bring it someone else? (ie, a person who just had a baby, or something like that.)
