This recipe was happened upon by accident and, like most recipes born out of a moment of desperation. I was cooking for a larger crowd and needed to be sure my kids would have something to eat. They aren’t super-picky eaters but they can get finikey in certain situations. The “I don’t like this” conversations start happening…Meanwhile I’m just trying to have a good time at the cook-out and make sure my kids are eating SOMETHING more than cookies and chips!!!
You see, in my formative pancake years the bar was set so high because grandma’s pancakes weren’t just homemade, they were homemade APPLE pancakes. I’ll venture to say this kind of culinary risk was before her time. I mean blueberry & chocolate chip, sure, but APPLE? I’m just saying,I don’t think it was a culinary coincidence that I wasn’t getting APPLE pancakes anywhere else but her house.
10 reasons why I have a crush on quiche
It’s Breakfast, It’s Dinner, It’s lunch, It’s Gluten Free when it’s ‘crustless’ or if you make a gluten free crust, It’s a blank palette for ingredients, It’s budget friendly, It’s good the next day for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, My kids eat the vegetables I put in it, It’s a great way to use leftovers, and It’s a favorite in my house
Like many of the recipes I come up with there are usually two major drivers at play: Necessity and history. I like the idea of taking what graced my grandma’s table and making it mine. Something familiar with a new twist.
How was I going to enjoy creamy casseroles? Chowder? Macaroni and cheese?I was prepared for my food funeral, but then realized I had to beef up my gluten free game. I couldn’t let these delectables disappear from my life. Or worse, watch everyone else enjoying these timeless favorites.
When you think of comfort food Macaroni and Cheese HAS to be in the top ten…Maybe even top 5…You can’t mix pasta with cheese and not immediately feel comforted. It could have healing powers we don’t even know about yet!
Living Gluten Free and continuing my love affair with the Food Network and their magazine.
Brownies. These treats haunt those of us who are gluten free because they are so hard to resist! And people bring them to EVERYTHING: picnics, potlucks, birthdays, office parties, sleepovers, family dinners, etc. Why? Because they are damn delicious and so are to resist! Ooey Gooey, chewy chocolate goodness.
