Recipes

I have been gluten free now for about 4 years. BUT, I wanted to share just a few of my go-to recipes that I enjoy. If you browse through my blog you will see a lot of GF recipes that are delicious. I do my best to continue to research and explore in the food world.

Here are some of my favorite recipes! 🙂 YUM!

I will add more recipes when I have some more time! 🙂

Buffalo Chicken Dip– from a friend

  • 1 small bottle of ranch or blue cheese dressing
  • 2 pkgs. of cream cheese
  • 1 bottle of Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Chicken Sauce
  • 1 pkg. of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cans of chicken breast or cooked chicken shredded up

Preparation: Throw everything in a crook pot and let it cook. You can add more hot sauce if you want. I have made this several times and it is a hit and so easy to make. You can even make it the night before! Glad a friend shared the recipe! 🙂

Cilantro Lime Rice-

  • 3 tsp butter
  • 2 TBS lime (1/2 lime per 2 servings)
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3 TBS chopped cilantro (or more)

Preparation:

  1. melt butter in saucepan over medium heat
  2. add lime and rice, fry for 1-2 minutes
  3. add water and bring to a boil
  4. reduce heat and cover until tunnels form in rice and water is fully absorbed (May need to add more water)
  5. add cilantro and serve

* I normally make this side with any taco meal we have. It is really easy to make and super easy. Sometimes I add a little lemon juice as well. Great with tacos!

Italian Sausage Linguini-

  • 1 lb. Linguini- Tomato basil, spinach or regular flavor
  • 4 Italian sausage links cut diagonally into 1/2 inch pieces (about 10 oz)
  • 2-3 roma tomatoes cut lengthwise
  • 1-2 green peppers chopped
  • 3 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 TBS butter
  • 1/2-1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2-1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 5 oz. artichokes
  • 1/4 cup white wine

Preparation: Cook linguini according to directions. Place cut sausage in a fry pan with 2 TBS extra virgin olive oil and cook until sausage starts to turn brown on both sides. Add 3 TBS butter along with roma tomatoes, artichokes and green peppers, saute until heated through. Add salt, pepper to taste and white wine. Toss linguini into the sauce and add 1 TBS extra virgin olive oil, parsley and parmesan cheese. Transfer to a serving platter and top with a little more parmesan.

* You can use any type of sausage. The original recipe calls for black olives but I changed it to green peppers for color and flavor.  Very tasty and the recipe makes a good amount.
