Roasted Honeynut Squash (GF, DF, Paleo, W30)

Yes, you read that right.  Honeynut squash is a butternut squash’s little brother/ sister.  It’s delicious and depending on how you top it, it can be also eaten if you are following the Paleo or Whole 30 diet.

So where did I find this beauty?  When I was at Trader Joe’s, they had the honeynut squash for 99 cents so Mom and I decided to each buy some because we were intrigued.

Maybe I should go back and label those blog posts as gluten free.

Our Thanksgiving Menu Preview – Blog Post #30

Since tomorrow is Halloween, it’s time to start thinking about our Thanksgiving dinner menu.  This year is going to be a little bit different because I eat gluten free.

Here is what is on the menu for our Thanksgiving dinner.  Okay this is maybe what is on our menu for Thanksgiving.  I’m having difficulty finding the gluten free fried onions at Aldi.  I’ve seen them else where so I may pick them up at a different grocery store.

Here is another Thanksgiving menu from two years ago.

Gluten Free Italian Pasta Salad – Blog Post #28

When I was growing up, I used to love a place called Landes Meats.  It’s a butcher/ bakery/ deli that has been a staple of my hometown since 1946.

They have such wonderful salads that I enjoy.  One of which is the Italian Pasta Salad.  I decided to create a Gluten Free version of the recipe.  I changed up the cheese to Feta because I enjoy the saltiness of Feta.

Ingredients

– 1 & ½ c. water or milk

– 3 to 4 Tbsp. honey or sugar (I use honey.)

– 2 ½ tsp. Dry active yeast

 

– 3 c. gluten free flour mix

– 1 & ½ tsp. Xanthan gum

– 4 tsp. Baking powder

– 1 tsp. Salt

– optional:  Mix in your desired sweet or savory flavors (cinnamon or garlic powder)

 

– 2 tsp. Apple cider vinegar or lemon juice

– ¼ c. olive oil

– 2 lrg eggs

 

Directions

  1. In a measuring cup, measure milk.  Place milk in microwave.  Warm on ½ power for 1 to 2 minutes or until warm to touch.  Stir in the honey.  Then sprinkle on yeast.  Set aside to allow to proof for 10 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the gluten free flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, salt, and the sweet or savory flavors.  (Dry ingredients)
  3. Combine the apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and eggs in a stand mixer bowl.  Using the paddle attachment, mix of a minute.
  4. Add the proofed yeast mix to the ingredients in the stand mixer bowl.  Mix for a minute.
  5. Add the dry ingredients and beat on medium-high for 3 minutes.  Dough will be wet, sticky, and thick.

  7. Using a spatula sprayed with cooking spray, scrape the bread mixture in the loaf pan.  Smooth out the loaf with the spatula.
  8. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  9. Place the bread mixture on top of the oven.  Do NOT over proof your bread.  Let it rise for about 20 – 30 minutes.  Don’t allow it to rise above your loaf pan.  Otherwise it will either flow over the pan or collapse.
  10. Bake for about 35 to 45 minutes.  
  11. Once you pull the bread out of the oven, do NOT leave the loaf to sit in the pan to rest.  Within one or two minutes, gently turn it out onto its side onto your cooling rack.
  12. Allow it to cool completely before cutting into slices.  Use a serrated bread knife.

Five More Tips for Going Gluten Free – Blog Post #26

Here are five more tips for going gluten free.

6.  Read labels 

This is an important one.  I am not so diligent on this tip.  You need to read the label because there is often hidden gluten in recipes.  It’s more than just looking for wheat.

Here is a link for hidden gluten sources.

7.  Find a buddy who has gone gluten free

This is not always an easy one.  I was lucky that I knew someone at my work who was eating gluten free.  I was able to talk to her during the early days of going gluten free.  She gave me some tips and brands of foods to try.  There are times when we talk about different brands or foods that we have found that are delicious.  It helps to have someone to talk or complain to while you are making the transition.

I have another person who was told by her doctor that she needs to go gluten free.  She knows she can talk to me about what to eat or not eat.

8.  Preplanning is key

I traveled a LOT during the summer which can be difficult when you eat gluten free.  What do you eat in the airport or on car rides?  When I went to visit my friend Molly, I had lots of foods that were gluten free to eat in the airport during my layover.  In fact, I had to remove all of the foods from my traveling bag before going through security.  There was a LOT of food stuffed in my bag.

While we were taking a road trip, I had plenty of food in my trunk in case we couldn’t find anywhere gluten free friendly.

It’s also key to look at menus before going out because a lot of places are not gluten free friendly.  I know I CANNOT eat at KFC or Taco Bell.  They are not gluten free friendly at all.  I’ve tried to eat at KFC about a month ago.  It made me sick.  Check out menus and nutrition guides before going out.

9.  Find ways to make substitutions of foods that contain gluten

This is not always going to be possible.  However there are times when I want the flavors of the foods I used to enjoy.  Find other ways to enjoy those flavors.

10.  Allow yourself to grieve

It’s hard to no longer to be able to eat gluten.  It’s a change of a lifestyle.  It’s going to be hard to adjust to not being able to eat foods that you love.  Allow yourself some time to grieve.  It’s okay.  Just remember you are doing this for your health.

Good luck with your journey.

Gluten Free Mac and Cheese – Blog Post #24

I hadn’t eaten Mac and cheese in almost 9 months. I used to love it. Then I went gluten free. It took me awhile to be able to find a gluten free pasta that I liked.

Finally I found the Aldi’s G Free elbow macaroni.  It’s made of quinoa, brown rice, white rice, and corn flour. I decided to try it out.  The pasta was great!

I used my basic mac and cheese recipe.  It involves making a roux of flour and butter to thicken the sauce.

The Wee one told me that it was too cheesy! LOL!

This quick and easy macaroni and cheese is going on my Thanksgiving table.  Yum!

Taco Rice (GF, DF) and Homemade Burrito Bowls – Blog Post #18

My mom an I enjoy going to a place called Hot Head Burritos.  We usually  get a lil bowl with either brown or white rice, pinto or black beans, and our choice of meat and toppings.

You can use this recipe to be the base of your own burrito bowl.  It would be delicious with taco meat or chicken ranch taco meat.  You can use either black or pinto beans.  It’s up to you to decide what type of toppings are on your burrito bowl.

Some topping ideas are:  lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, pico, sour cream, corn, and guacamole.  Yum!

As you can see being gluten free does not have to be boring.

Sloppy Joe French Fries (GF) – Blog Post #17

There is no real recipe.

On Saturday, I decided to make sloppy Joes.  Instead of eating it without eating it with gluten free bread, baked potato, or by itself, I decided to make French fries.

I topped the French fries with the Sloppy Joes and then added some shredded cheese.  Yum!

Saturday is a pretty casual day for our dinners.  Hubby saw how I ate my Sloppy Joe and decided he wanted to eat it the same way.

P!nk’s New Album and Mom, What’s for Dinner? – Week of October 15, 2017 – Blog Post #16

We are now on the downward swing of my Write 31 2017.  Yeah!

My favorite artist is P!nk.  I adore her.  Her music is the soundtrack of my life.

On Friday, I got her newest album, Beautiful Trauma.  I already have favorite songs that I’ve played on repeat a million billion times.

Everyone interprets songs differently.  So when I talk about my feels and thoughts about my two favorite songs from the album, be reminded these are my thoughts and feels.

“I Am Here” – Oh my goodness.  I feel as though it is speaking to me about my current situation in my school district.  We are in academic distress.  One of the lyrics is “I’ve already seen  the bottom so I have nothing to fear.”  It’s my rally cry.

The song also tells me to live authentically.  Live my truth not another person’s truth.  The opening line is “I open up my heart.  You can love me or not.”  I struggle with this bit constantly.  It’s a reminder to live my truth.

P!nk

Finally the song addresses the age old question.  What happens when we die.  “Where do we go when we go.”  Since I am Christian, I believe I go to Heaven.

The other song that speaks to me is “Barbies.”  She addresses growing older.  Since I’m over 40, 42 to be exact, life is totally different from when I was younger.  Sometimes it would be nice to go back to when life was so much simpler.  When I did not have to adult all the time.  Maybe that is why I love Disney so much.  I’m able to put adulting to the side for a while and be childlike while I’m there.

Hubby and I are going to go to see her in Louisville during my Spring Break.  I’m so excited.  We were able to get the tickets before the price gouging.  I’ve read a lot of people complaining about the price of tickets.  $500 or more per ticket.  The price for our tickets was not cheap and a lot more than I would have spent but Hubby knows how much I love her.  Seeing her in concert is on my “Bucket List,” so he was willing to pay those prices.

Now onto our menu for the week.  Please continue to the next page.

Pressure Cooker Rice (GF) – Blog Post #14

One of our favorite side dishes is plain rice with butter and salt.

Hubby and the Wee One especially love it.

I actually love brown rice more than white rice.  However Hubby and the Wee One love white rice.  So we make more white rice than brown rice.

The ratio of dry rice to water/ liquid is 1 to 2.  So easy to remember.

You can certainly make this dairy free but using a dairy free butter or omitting the butter.

Fall Trail Mix (DF, GF) – Blog Post #12

We went to Meijers the other day.  As I walking back to the front of the store, I noticed the pumpkin spiced Cheerios so I decided to get me a box.

Once I got home, I decided to use the Cheerios to make a trail mix.

Now there is some debate whether Cheerios are truly gluten free.  Some people have reactions when they eat them.  If you are one of those people, please don’t use them.

I had some pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds waiting for me to do something with so I used them in this trail mix.

You can use any kind of nut.  I had pecans available so I used them.  I think walnuts would be delicious in this trail mix.

I also used some freeze dried apples that I got at Trader Joes.  However, I think dried cranberries would be delicious also.

Store your trail mix in an airtight container.

Plum Crumble (GF) – Blog Post #11

One of my favorite YouTubers who has her own cooking show is Sara from the Domestic Geek.

She has some great recipes that I have tried over the years.

The other day I was looking at a video of hers from a few years ago where she baked gluten free desserts in a mason jar.  Talk about portion control.

One of those recipes was a plum crumble.  It looked so good.

It was then I found a coupon for free plums or $2.50 off the plums.

So I went and got some plums and made our dessert for our Sunday dinner.

My mom, mother-in-law, and myself loved the plum crumble.

Sara put pistachios in her crumble.  I left those out.  It was still good without them.

It would be delicious with ice cream or whipped cream.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins – Blog Post #10

I love the flavors of fall – cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves.  All of those flavors make my taste buds sing.

Hubby laughs at me buying all of the pumpkin flavored goodies.

When I got up on Saturday, I was craving pumpkin muffins.  Since I’m eating gluten free, I can’t just go to Panera and get myself a muffin.

So it’s up to me to bake my own muffins.

I googled gluten free pumpkin muffins and found this recipe.

I adapted the recipe by using regular milk with apple cider vinegar to get the lift she discussed in the recipe.  She also suggested adding chocolate chips which I did.  Yum!

Since I added the chocolate chips, I was able to get 10 muffins out of the batter instead of the 9.

I enjoyed my muffin with butter and a mug of pumpkin spice coffee.  Delicious!
