Easy, Gluten Free Donut Muffins

When you are gluten free you learn quickly that some foods are hard to come by unless you make them yourself. Foods like donuts (or is it doughnuts, hmm). My family loves a good donut and so did I. We even live in the state that is home to some of the best donuts around, Krispy Kreme. My daughter is constantly asking for donuts and my husband is all too willing to indulge her cravings. I have to ask though, what about mom, where are the gluten free donuts at? They are in my kitchen because I have to make them myself. While I haven’t taken the dive into making gluten free donuts, I have found the next best thing, donut muffins.

When you make chocolate chip cookies part of the process is, you eat some of the cookie dough. It has also been one of those, you aren’t supposed to do that type of things. Everyone does it anyways.

You can with this easy eggless, chocolate chip cookie dough.

Sweet Potato Waffles

Sweet Potatoes, it seems you either love them or hate them. I love them and always have. My husband, on the other hand, used to hate them but now loves them. He will eat them any way I serve them now which I love and have started experimenting some more. Our current sweet potato creation we have fallen for are Sweet Potato Waffles.

Hearty Potato Skillet

One of the things every person needs to have is a recipe for a really great breakfast. I often fall into the make pancakes or waffles for breakfast but my family often wants something different and a bit heartier, more on the bacon and eggs side of things. Something like a skillet with all of their favorite things so a Hearty Potato Skillet is what they got. With potatoes, bacon, sausage, cheese and an egg on top, it fulfills any breakfast craving

Almost like Grandma’s Zucchini Bread

 There are a few foods that remind me of my grandma, they were always the ones she had made and in the house when we would visit. One of those was Zucchini Bread.  I’m not even sure when my love of her zucchini bread began. I can tell you that after I got married my grandma sent me a handwritten copy of her recipe on an index card after I asked her for it and I still make the same recipe. Well, almost, I know make it gluten free and a wee bit healthier by subbing apple sauce for some of the oil. Even with my minor changes it taste just as good as her’s.

Cheater Spicy Chicken Penne

A few years back, when my oldest and youngest still ran USATF track I was introduced to a pasta dish at a team dinner that I fell in love with, Spicy Chicken Rigatoni. I came up with my own version and my family loved it. Then when I gave gluten the boot I stopped making it. Truth is there really aren’t a ton of different gluten free pasta shapes. There is penne though and it is similar to rigatoni. Well, it is close enough for me. Spicy Chicken Penne is now something that has been added back into my families meal plans and is a meal my kids would eat weekly if I would let them.
