When I make burgers, french fries or even spiral fries I love to season them with my homemade seasoned salt. It just makes them that much more tastier than using just plain salt! I actually had an old season salt spice jar that I reused for my concoction and didn’t even need to make a label for, score!
Gluten Free Seasoned Salt
1/4 cup salt
2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon arrowroot
- Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix thoroughly.
- Pour blended seasoned salt into an empty spice bottle with shaker top to store.
My husband and my kids LOVE Thousand Island Dressing. I had made taco salad, but when I went to grab the Thousand Island Dressing I realized I was all out of it!!
So in a pinch I made homemade and everyone said it was really yummy. Score! I might be making the Thousand Island Dressing from scratch from here on out!
My husband wanted me to make homemade turkey burgers for dinner. I have to say I love turkey, but never have been a fan of Turkey Burgers since more than likely they come out very dry.
I told him I would try my best to make a juicy burger and I have to say it was VERY JUICY and VERY TASTY!! I A-MAZED myself, LOL!
Who would have thunk? I will definitely be making these tasty burgers again for the family!
Since I fried up the yams the other night I didn’t want to waste the oil so I decided to make Beer battered Fish AND onion rings! And boy were they oh to yummy!! So glad I did!
But if you have fried fish you totally want something to dip and Tartar sauce is a great dipper for your fried fish. My husband isn’t into Tartar sauce but her tried it nevertheless and said he really liked what I made and actually dipped his fish with every bite!
If your arteries weren’t clogged already this will definitely help!
My husband went to Ruby River Restaurant and wanted to see if I could replicate their Jacketed Cinnamon Yam they served at the restaurant. Anyhow, I made a gluten free version and have to say it was really tasty! My husband loved it so much that he ate a whole yam and didn’t even touch his Tri-Tip!
When I was making my Gluten Free No-bake Peanut Butter Oreo Pie I wanted to make my own homemade fudge sauce to use in the recipe instead of buying a jar at the store.
So I got out a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips and a can of Sweetened Condensed Milk to get started.
This recipe is wonderful in recipes, drizzled over ice cream, fruit, pie whatever you want it for!
I love cooking and baking — and making homemade candy is no exception. I tried something a tad different this year and decided to make fudge and place it into my Easter egg shaped molds.
It is firm, yet soft and oh so yummy with the marshmallows and pecans.
Here is a very simple recipe to make a great tasting beef gravy. You can use it over Steaks & mashed potatoes, Loco Mocos OR whatever you love gravy on!!
And if you want to jazz it up… you can sautée fresh mushrooms and add to the gravy and serve over breaded cube steaks or even a juicy ribeye… there are endless ways to use this wonderful gravy!!
Gluten Free Homemade Beef Gravy
- 2 Tablespoons Beef Base (I like Better Than Bouillon)
- 2 Cups Water
- 1 Cup Butter
- 2 Tablespoons Arrowroot or Cornstarch
- In a small bowl dissolve Beef Base into Water. Set aside.
- Next melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add Arrowroot and whisk together, making sure to get all visible lumps out.
- Turn heat to low and SLOWLY add broth, stirring constantly.
- Turn heat back up to medium and continue stirring until gravy boils and thickens.
I find that buying pre-made all purpose gluten free flour is very expensive at the store per pound so I basically make my own.
Also, living at an altitude of 4,750 elevation requires a little more protein in my mix to help with that sponginess you would get from all Wheat Flours.
When I make my flour blend I love using Teff Flour as one of my blends. It is high in protein — which most GF Flours lack.
I also prefer using Bob’s Red Mill brand and tend to go with that brand when making my blend.
A couple of weeks ago I cut up a raw turkey and used one of the turkey breasts to make Gluten Free Turkey nuggets served with my cranberry dipping sauce!
I dredged the nuggets through egg and a gluten free bread crumbs mixed with smashed Ruffles potato chips as my breading. Yep, it was a tasty concoction!!
