Gluten Free Pumpkin Bars

I am a lazy cook, so I use canned pumpkin instead of fresh pumpkin. Usually 28-ounce cans of pumpkin have the lowest unit price, so that is what I tend to buy. Leftover pumpkin can be scooped into muffin cups or measured by 1/2-cupfuls into zipper bags and frozen for several months. Or you can […]

Corned Beef Patties

Corned Beef Patties are a family favorite. When you get tired of casseroles and other combination-foods, these patties make a nice change of pace.

Classic Macaroni Salad

If you’re making macaroni salad with gluten-free macaroni, then Tinkiyada macaroni or shells will give you the best texture. Other, corn-based, pasta products, do not work as well in macaroni salad as Tinkiyada does. If you only have corn-based gluten free pasta, then by all means use what you have. But if you have a […]

Quick and easy, this classic potato salad is yummy enough for any occasion. I add water chestnuts for crunch and texture. They have very little flavor on their own, so no one is ever quite sure what they are. They just make the salad extra tasty. My family gives this recipe 2-thumbs up. Or 4-paws […]
